REIQ to launch world-first technology that will make renting easier

first_imgThey used a similar online system for maintenance requests, which Mr Henderson said worked really well.“We’ve found that’s really reduced the number of phone calls coming into the office so that saves a lot of time, it also creates a written record,” he said.“It reduces the amount of possible errors that can be made as well.”The REIQ has partnered with Queensland technology firm Igloo to create the product.“As a start-up, we knew that our world-leading technology could vastly improve the way that people are connected with property but we needed an established partner to take it to market,” Igloo founder and chief executive Jeremy Hastings said.“The REIQ not only had the most widely used forms product in the state, it was also open to challenging the status quo — an essential element for working with us to drive value back into the tenancy process.”The system will also create a real-time view of the state’s rental market. John Henderson Professionals Mermaid Beach director Luke Henderson welcomed the technology.“If they can use the electronic signature to sign a lease, it would save time for both agent and tenant,” he said. Renting in Queensland is about to get a whole lot easier.RENTING is about to get easier with Queensland tenants the first to try new technology that will streamline the process of signing a lease and maintaining a property.The Real Estate Institute of Queensland will deliver the world’s first fully digitised residential tenancy agreements by the end of the year.The proptech innovation has the potential to transform the way rental properties are transacted and managed across the country and around the globe.REIQ general manager Josh Callaghan said it had been designed to make renting easier for both tenants and property managers.“At its simplest, a smart contract is a digital contract that can live beyond its initial execution by facilitating transactions and giving all parties a central record of what has happened during the tenancy,” he said.“This solution has been designed to reduce the manual handling of contracts from the property manager side while streamlining the process for tenants and giving both parties much better visibility over the agreement.” The technology is designed to streamline everything.He said it meant younger tenants who were used to paying for food and transport at the touch of a button could do the same with a rental property.“We’re in a world where that’s the norm,” he said.“By executing as a smart contract, we’re also able to build out the functionality to handle payments of bond and rent plus facilitate other activities related to the property such as routine inspections and maintenance.” MORE NEWS: Own the house used in Chris Lilley’s Netflix series More from news02:37International architect Desmond Brooks selling luxury beach villa10 hours ago02:37Gold Coast property: Sovereign Islands mega mansion hits market with $16m price tag1 day agoVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:13Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:13 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p360p360p216p216pAutoA, selectedAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Beat writers project Syracuse to take care of St. Bonaventure

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Sam Blum (1-0)Syracuse 77, St. Bonaventure 54Workin’ like a dogThe first half of Friday night’s win against Lehigh showed a glimpse of what Syracuse can do. On Tuesday, the Orange puts together a more complete performance against its A-10 foe from somewhere, New York. It’s Syracuse that starts to stamp its place on the map, not St. Bonaventure.Jesse Dougherty (1-0)Syracuse 73, St. Bonaventure 59Catch me if you can Syracuse, sticking true to the pace it set against Lehigh, will run St. Bonaventure out of the gym on Tuesday night. The Orange frontcourt doesn’t make significant strides against the Bonnies, but does benefit from playing a team that doesn’t play anyone taller than 6 feet, 8 inches. When it’s all said and done, Trevor Cooney is leaving his follow through up at half court and the Carrier Dome crowd is showering SU’s shooters with cheers. An abundance of 3s works this time, but stay tuned.Matt Schneidman (1-0)Syracuse 71, St. Bonaventure 49Bon fireFormer Bonnie and current Orlando Magic forward Andrew Nicholson might be the only thing that could save St. Bonaventure, as a lack of length will allow a shallow Orange frontcourt to stay afloat and out of foul trouble. The SU zone puts the visitors offense up in flames, and Syracuse inches into Taco Time as the Bonnies fall short of 50.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Related Stories Dougherty: Syracuse basketball’s only option is to be funSyracuse basketball primer: What to know about St. Bonaventure and ElonSyracuse basketball film review: Isolating Michael Gbinije on the blockWhat we learned from Syracuse’s season-opening win over Lehighcenter_img Published on November 17, 2015 at 8:55 amlast_img read more

Syracuse is a Sweet 16 sleeper

first_imgThe little guys of March have all been eliminated from the NCAA Tournament.Thanks for the memories, Stephen F. Austin, Middle Tennessee and Arkansas-Little Rock.In many ways, this postseason fiasco is all about the little guys. Their magic against the powerhouses never fails to appease college basketball fans’ morbid fascination with seeing their brackets crumble.And while this Sweet 16 features exactly zero real underdogs, there is one particularly intriguing team still hanging around.Of course we see you, Syracuse.The Orange racked up 13 losses on the season. This meant that Jim Boeheim’s not-so-star-studded team was on the bubble to even make the field of 68. However, after its self-imposed postseason ban just a year ago, ’Cuse squeezed its way into the tourney and now has officially completed its return to primetime.Because of Northern Iowa’s historic collapse against Texas A&M, Syracuse is really the last team remaining that truly feels like an enigma.Wisconsin, Notre Dame and Duke also finished with 10 or more losses this season, but these teams were grabbing headlines with regularity. The Wisconsin hype train was fairly calm this season after the Badgers’ postseason run a year ago, but Notre Dame and Duke always seem to find the limelight.Syracuse’s season was a different story.The Orange’s four-game skid in the middle of the season certainly didn’t help this group leap to the forefront of media attention, nor did the team’s losing five of its last six games leading up to the NCAA Tournament.Many fans likely saw the perennial powerhouse casually hanging out in the bottom right corner of the bracket and didn’t think much of it. Yet although Syracuse-Dayton appeared the definition of a tossup, the Orange clobbered the Flyers.Surely Boeheim’s team didn’t have the ability to compete with Michigan State in the second game. Well, the Spartans somehow lost by nine to a sneaky good Middle Tennessee bunch. This set up nicely for ‘Cuse, who wrecked the Cinderella team from Murfreesboro, Tennessee.Next up for Michael Gbinije and Malachi Richardson: Gonzaga. Gbinije and Richardson are Syracuse’s two leading scorers, but this team has flown so far under the radar that these names don’t really resonate like, say, Carmelo Anthony, Scoop Jardine or C.J Fair. The Bulldogs of Gonzaga cruised into the tournament as an 11-seed and simply dominated two quality teams in Seton Hall and Utah en route to the Sweet 16.While this may look like a friendly draw for the good folks from Spokane, the admonition from a completely neutral columnist at a student publication is very real. Proceed with caution. Syracuse does not have a tremendous amount of pressure heaped upon its shoulders. Its zone seemingly always gives opposing coaches headaches in March and its balanced scoring at the offensive end represents a well-rounded, versatile attack.The Carrier Dome, traditionally a cathedral of college basketball greatness, was seemingly just another gym this season. In fact, this middling ACC team was actually treated as such. ‘Cuse went .500 in conference play and looked perfectly average, yet these guys appear to be hitting stride at the perfect time.As a program, having storylines — or even a roster — begging for television exposure during December obviously gets you nowhere in March. ‘Cuse is a legitimately dangerous team that could manage to escape the Midwest region if this upward trajectory continues against a talented Gonzaga side.Josh Cohen is a sophomore majoring in broadcast and digital journalism.

ANN Charges Super Eagles to Succeed in Russia

first_img“We see a team of players from across the Niger, the South-South, the Northern hemisphere and the West of Nigeria where no one has earned a shirt because of quota system. Every member of the Super Eagles has earned a shirt because they deserve it. That’s our concept of a New Nigeria and that’s what we have seen with the Super Eagles.“Within the period of the games, we know Nigeria’s unity comes through very strongly. No one cares who scores the goal, no one cares what part of Nigeria the goalkeeper is from. Everyone speaks one language; one language of hope and expectation and the handshakes, hugs, laughter, smiles, shouts, drums and dance that follow every win of the team will attest to the reality of the spirit that binds us together.“For us as a party, this is the spirit of Nigeria. The spirit of a people so indivisible and united. The spirit of great neighbourliness and warm friendship and love,” he said.Samuels stated that in every win or loss, it will not be about a particular part of Nigeria, but the whole country. He said all Nigerians would focus their energies and prayers for the Super Eagles to win; Muslims pray and Christians, even in some instances gather to pray together.“This is therefore a call to every Nigerian across divides and age to rally round the Super Eagles over the next four weeks as we watch the FIFA World Cup and cheer the Super Eagles to victory.“We know that friendship and fair play rule the game of football. We are confident that as a team, our Super Eagles have what it takes to win the World Cup. However, win or lose, we shall celebrate victory because it’s all about fair play at the end.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The Alliance for New Nigeria has tipped the Super Eagles of Nigeria for success in the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup starting next week. The National Chairman of the party, Dr. Jay Osi Samuels said though 23 players have been selected to represent the country, he assured them that about 200 million Nigerians home and abroad are solidly behind them.He urged Nigerians to put away political, religious or ethnic affiliations and to align with one voice to cheer the Super Eagles to victory in Russia.He said as a party with the single focus of seeing a Nigeria where Nigerians are united and can bear each other’s differences while drawing on the beauty of the country’s diversity, he sees the current Super Eagles as a metaphor for that position that the party holds.last_img read more
