AFTER: The back of the house after the renovation.More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus13 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market13 hours agoThe second stage of the renovation required removing the asbestos extension at the back of the cottage, adding a carport, guest bedroom and bathroom, and laundry, which Mrs Dunlop was happy about after having lived without one for a couple of years.Both stages were completed solely by the Dunlops, with Mr Dunlop using his skills as a tradesman and Mrs Dunlop using her creative flair to design the interior.“He’s gone very grey,” Mrs Dunlop said, referring to her husband.“We’re needing a holiday.“The kids are sick of spending all our money on houses!” MORE: Historic home sells for millions AFTER: The back yard of the home at 54 Meiers Rd, Indooroopilly, after the renovation.RENO FACT CHECKTime taken: 5 yearsTotal spend: $1.03m BEFORE: Inside the house at 54 Meiers Rd, Indooroopilly, before it was renovated.

This is the couple’s fourth home renovation — and their favourite so far.They loved the Indooroopilly area and were looking for a new venture, so when they came across 54 Meiers Rd in 2014, they knew it was for them.“We found this little, old, rundown home and it just had an enormous amount of character and a massive big yard, which was sort of a rarity at that time,” Mrs Dunlop said.“I saw it, brought my husband through and put an offer on it that same night, and we were lucky enough to get it.“It was very rundown and the yard was overgrown, but you could tell it was a beautiful little home underneath — the bones were beautiful.” BEFORE: The bathroom in the house at 54 Meiers Rd, Indooroopilly, before it was renovated.

Derek Fisher said his move to the WNBA is “not a step down” while he was introduced as the Los Angeles Sparks head coach Friday,”This opportunity is not a step down, sideways, backwards, somehow different than the men’s game,” Fisher told reporters (via the Associated Press). “There isn’t a future outside of what we’re here to talk about today.” Fisher previously coached the Knicks, but was fired in 2016 midway through his second season after the team posted a 23-31 record. He is replacing Brian Agler, who resigned last week after four seasons with the Sparks. “Our coach’s search was short but sweet,” executive vice president and general manager Penny Toler said. “The first person who came to mind was Derek Fisher. Derek has been a huge supporter of the Sparks, but even more importantly, he’s been a huge supporter of the WNBA from Day 1. He would leave his practice and fly and watch us play.” Toler explained Fisher asked “about 2,000 questions” before accepting the job. Fisher indicated it was necessary after his time with the Knicks, the AP notes.”What I learned is, if there is not clarity in purpose, vision and mission from ownership to management to coaches to players to staff, it doesn’t work,” Fisher said. “Some of the basketball things are irrelevant if ownership, management, staff, players, if we are not aligned in the way we see going about our jobs and achieving our purpose and our mission.”The Sparks are coming off a 19-15 season with Agler at the helm. They lost in the second round of the playoffs to the Washington Mystics. Related News NBA wrap: Joel Embiid-less 76ers come from behind to extend Pistons’ skid
In the weeks that followed, Loeffler urged her constituents to have faith in the Trump administration’s efforts to prepare the nation.“@realDonaldTrump & his administration are doing a great job working to keep Americans healthy & safe,” Loeffler tweeted Feb. 27.The Daily Beast first reported that Loeffler dropped the stock in late January. The senator is married to Jeffrey Sprecher, the chairman and CEO of Intercontinental Exchange, which owns the New York Stock Exchange.In a tweet early Friday morning, Loeffler said the report was a “ridiculous & baseless attack” and that she doesn’t make investment decisions for her portfolio.“Investment decisions are made by multiple third-party advisors without my or my husband’s knowledge or involvement,” she tweeted.She wrote that she was informed of the decisions three weeks after they were made. COPING WITH THE OUTBREAK:– Europeans sing health workers’ praises nightly from windows– AP PHOTOS: Virus clears out Tel Aviv’s beaches, outdoor gyms– In pandemic, word definitions shift and new lexicon emerges WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-N.C., is asking for an ethics probe in response to criticism that he sold off as much as $1.7 million in stocks just before the market dropped in February amid coronavirus fears.Senate records show that Burr and his wife sold between roughly $600,000 and $1.7 million in more than 30 separate transactions in late January and mid-February, just before the market began to fall and as government health officials began to issue stark warnings about the effects of the virus. Several of the stocks were in companies that own hotels.In a statement Friday morning, Burr said he had asked for the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate the matter, “understanding the assumption many could make in hindsight.”Burr said he relied “solely on public news reports,” specifically CNBC’s daily health and science reporting out of its Asia bureaus, to make the financial decisions.There is no indication that Burr had any inside information as he sold the stocks. The intelligence panel did not have any briefings on the pandemic the week when most of the stocks were sold, according to a person familiar with the matter. The person declined to be identified to discuss confidential committee activity.The stock sales were first reported by ProPublica and The Center for Responsive Politics. Most of them came on Feb. 13, just before Burr made a speech in Washington, D.C., in which he predicted severe consequences from the virus, including closed schools and cutbacks in company travel, according to audio obtained by National Public Radio and released Thursday.Burr told the small North Carolina State Society audience that the virus was “much more aggressive in its transmission than anything that we have seen in recent history” and “probably more akin to the 1918 pandemic.”Burr’s remarks were much more dire than remarks he had made publicly, and came as President Donald Trump was still downplaying the severity of the virus.In a tweet on Thursday, Burr said that Americans were already being warned about the effects of the virus when he made the speech to the North Carolina State Society.“The message I shared with my constituents is the one public health officials urged all of us to heed as coronavirus spread increased,” Burr wrote. “Be prepared.”The North Carolina senator was not the only lawmaker to sell off stocks just before the steep decline due to the global pandemic. Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler, a new senator who is up for re-election this year, sold off hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of stock in late January, as senators began to get briefings on the virus, also according to Senate records.
