Third of Aussies lie to get the cash needed to buy a home

first_imgUBS report warns up to a third of Australians lie to get the cash needed to buy a home.QUEENSLAND borrowers are among the least likely to lie to get the cash they need to buy a home, despite a global banking giant warning up to a third of Australian mortgages could be so-called “liar loans”.A survey of more than 900 home loan borrowers conducted by investment bank UBS over the past 12 months has found only 67 per cent had a mortgage based on “completely factual and accurate” information.Not surprisingly, the nation’s two most expensive property markets — New South Wales and Victoria — were also the ones with the highest rate of less-than-honest mortgage applications, followed by the ACT and Tasmania.But almost three quarters of Queenslanders (73 per cent) were totally honest in their loan documents.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:51Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:51 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

England celebrate a hat-trick of victories

first_img England are celebrating a hat-trick of victories at this year’s Women’s, Boys’ and Girls’ Home Internationals.The boys’ team won their competition after a tense deciding match against Ireland at Ashburnham in Wales and the women and girls then completed a rare treble with victories over the same opposition on a weather-affected final day at Downfield in Scotland.England win in the Boys’ Home Internationals was their fourth in a row but it required a battling performance to come from behind and beat a formidable Irish side.The England team lost the morning foursomes 3 ½ – 1 ½ but then stemmed the tide when Conor Gough halved the first singles against Tom McKibbin before Joe Pagdin, Robin Williams, Max Hopkins, Enrique Dimayuga and Habebul Islam put five further points on the board to take their side to within touching distance of winning the match.Islam’s match proved key to England’s success. He had a one-hole lead playing the last but needed to get up-and-down from 80-yards to make a par before seeing his opponent Simon Walker miss from 20-feet for a birdie.That point set up Callum Macfie to provide the winning point and he duly did so when he birdied the 17th to beat Max Kennedy 2 & 1 and ensure that England will retain the trophy for another year.“Even though we lost the foursomes this morning, I just felt that we could get six points out of the singles and that would do the job,” said England captain, Steve Burnett. “We’ve got a very strong team and I knew they might just be stronger over the closing nine holes when the conditions got a little tougher.“The wind picked up and the back nine played harder and the boys showed their talent by turning matches around that Ireland might have won. We got a lot of good performances. I thought Conor’s half point in the first match was important to get us off to a good start. Habebul’s par at the last was crucial because it set up Callum to take us over the line, which he did. I’m over the moon.”England wins over Ireland in the deciding matches in the Women’s and Girls’ Home Internationals in Scotland proved to be equally dramatic but not before the weather almost brought the proceedings to a premature end.Torrential rain forced the foursomes to be scrapped and there were also long delays before the singles were completed.In the end, England edged to a 3 ½ – 2 ½ victory to win the Women’s event for the first time since 2016 at Conwy in Wales. Bel Wardle, Lily May Humphreys and Emily Toy won the first three singles for England, but Jessica Ross and Lauren Walsh then responded with wins for Ireland before current English champion Ellen Hume halved the final singles against Paula Grant to secure the all-important half point.“It was a terrific all-round effort and it was a good end to a long day,” said the English captain, Helen Hewlett. “The team was fantastic and we are delighted with the win.”The deciding match against Ireland in the Girls’ Home Internationals proved to be even tighter with no less than four of the six matches going to the 18th green.The two sides eventually shared the singles 3-3 but England were declared the winners on account of the fact they had accrued two more points than their Irish rivals over the first two days against Scotland and Wales. The English winners in the decider were Jessica Baker and Isabelle Simpson, while Caitlin Whitehead and Rosie Belsham both halved their matches.“I’m delighted,” said the winning captain, Janet Melville. “Every time play was suspended we were ahead but all of a sudden things changed. Izzy (Simpson) was the stand-out player. She was three down with five to play but won the 14th with a birdie and went on to win on the 18th. She told me before she went out after the rain she was going to win her point.”England now have a chance to complete a clean sweep of Home International titles when the men’s event is played at Lahinch on September 11-13.

Raisman embraces role as ‘Fierce’ advocate for abuse victims

first_imgJapan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Gymnast Aly Raisman poses for photos at the 2016 Team USA Media Summit in Beverly Hills, Calif. Six-time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman’s gymnastics career has set the stage for what she believes is the next chapter in her life: as a spokesperson for victims of sexual abuse. The 23-year-old detailed her own history of abuse by a former USA Gymnastics team doctor in her recently released autobiography. Raisman says the book is just the beginning in her quest to bring change to her sport. AP FILE PHOTOThe people come forward to Aly Raisman almost daily now. Random strangers. Men and women of various ages, races and backgrounds. They see the six-time Olympic medal-winning gymnast out in public and approach with a hug to give and a story to tell.It was jarring at first, if Raisman is being honest. When she pitched her autobiography “Fierce” to publishers last summer shortly after the 2016 Olympics, she intended to focus on her journey from tenacious prodigy to champion. And while all of that is in there, the part of her experience that’s resonated the most since the book’s release earlier this month is the one she wasn’t sure she’d be able to share.ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC It’s Chapter 22, titled “The Survivors.” In it, Raisman outlines how she was abused by former national team doctor Larry Nassar, how he “groomed” her by presenting himself as a friendly ear and how she feels he was empowered to continue over the course of years by those in charge at USA Gymnastics.Raisman spent weeks working on the section, revisiting it again and again, trying to get it just right. Or at least as close to right as she can get.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“I put in a ton of thought whether how I wanted to come forward about this,” Raisman told The Associated Press. “What I realized at the end of the day is that I want change and I want people to understand what exactly abuse is. It’s very complicated. It’s very confusing. I didn’t know that I was being abused because I was manipulated so horribly.”In the process, Raisman discovered the abuse Nassar committed against other female athletes — including allegations from Olympic teammates McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas — is a very small part of a much larger problem that extends far beyond the actions of just one man. It’s why she took those painful memories and put them on paper, to share with the world that, as she says over and over again: “It’s not OK. It’s never OK.” QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort Read Next LATEST STORIES Kris Aquino ‘pretty chill about becoming irrelevant’ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. MOST READ Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa The 23-year-old’s new calling makes thinking about a return to competition in time for the 2020 Olympics seem trivial.“This is the focus,” Raisman said.A focus that has turned her into an unexpected symbol of strength for others who share their experiences.“Unfortunately sexual abuse is far too common,” Raisman said. “I’ve realized how many people are affected by it and it’s disgusting. That’s why I want change.”Raisman has become an increasingly outspoken critic of USA Gymnastics, blaming the governing body for a lack of oversight on Nassar’s conduct. The 54-year-old spent nearly 20 years as the team doctor for the U.S. women’s elite program, often working with athletes one on one. Raisman declined to get into specifics about the abuse she was subjected to, but her experience falls in line with what many other have claimed against Nassar: that he touched them inappropriately while describing it as proper treatment.ADVERTISEMENT Nassar pleaded guilty to multiple charges of sexual assault in Michigan on Wednesday (Thursday Manila time) and will face at least 25 years in prison. He still faces additional criminal charges and has been named in more than 125 civil lawsuits filed by former athletes. Nassar’s downfall began following reporting by the Indianapolis Star in 2016 that highlighted chronic mishandling of abuse allegations against coaches and staff at some of USA Gymnastics’ more than 3,500 clubs across the country.Raisman has not taken any legal action against Nassar, though she’s not ruling it out. Her larger concern is educating young athletes and their parents on the warning signs while loudly clamoring for change. She has seen a familiar pattern repeat itself over the last 18 months: another gymnast comes out claiming abuse by Nassar, and USA Gymnastics follows with a news release attributed to no specific individual that praises them for their courage.One of the most decorated Olympic athletes of her generation doesn’t just want words. She wants action.USA Gymnastics has taken several steps in recent months. President and CEO Steve Penny resigned under pressure in March and was replaced by Kerry Perry, who takes over on Dec. 1.The organization hired Toby Stark, a child welfare advocate, as its director of SafeSport over the summer. Part of Stark’s mandate is educating members on rules, educational programs and reporting. The federation also adopted over 70 recommendations by Deborah Daniels, a former federal prosecutor who oversaw an extensive independent review.It’s not enough for Raisman. She points out Penny wasn’t fired but instead forced out. Though Nassar’s relationship with USA Gymnastics officially ended in 2015 after an athlete came forward about potential abuse, he was still allowed to continue working at Michigan State University while also volunteering at a USA Gymnastics-affiliated club.“That is just unacceptable to me,” Raisman said. “(That gym) is a part of USA Gymnastics. USA Gymnastics is responsible for kids at that gym. Instead of doing their job, they let Larry keep working there.”Raisman would like to see more extensive change in leadership at USA Gymnastics. She never imagined being an agent for change as she dreamed of the Olympics while growing up in Needham, Massachusetts, but she’s embracing the role as she comes to grips with her own victimhood.Chapter 22 wasn’t the end, only the beginning.“I’m still, as you see, processing it,” she said. “I’m still at a loss for words. I’m having so many people come up to me, telling me they had similar experience, that they filed a complaint and it was ignored. I will do everything I can to make sure those people are heard.” LaVar Ball, eccentric patriarch of basketball prodigies Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.
