    Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    Grabbed a Dell http://m.dell.com/mt/http://www.dell.com/in/p/inspiron-11-3162-laptop/pd Under 200 Aussie. As a work machine it's perfect. Son has similar and been going strong all year. Windows X costs nearly that much and is installed on it. .

    Housing Bubble thread.

    I'm not so sure about the Qld bubble. I sold my joint for 8XX 4 years ago in Red Hill. Checking the market, prices are 680-880 and a bunch of auctions. Mine was a 3 and 2 with 2 LUG on 10.5 perches. It's about the same now. Flat is a better descriptor. I have a few agents that I get offers from still and places like West end are getting 25% discounts on release as unsold . It's not so much a bubble but an oversupply I'm certain areas. Everything else is pretty ordinary. Considering interest, a cash account would see you with more money.

    Good friend is moving to the area. Son is an U16 who is thinking about making the move to the big time. Any suggestions for squads or local coaches? Talking elite outcomes.

    The Expat Thread.

    The same as a full time accountant in their country. Plus full board and medical. Plus 28 days holiday plus 1x flight per year.

    The Expat Thread.

    UAE is a bit inconsistent with gratuity. It can depend on your Visa job title. Some domestic/labour jobs have none. I know some private sector professionals who receive nothing first year then a flat 4 weeks when they leave. I work for Federal government and get 1 month per year for first 5 years, 1.5 for years 6-9 and 2 months for every year after. This is as per the contract I received when starting which was for perm employment so not renegotiated ever. Pay is separate and covered by Federal HR policy for regrading etc. I believe in Qatar expat fed govt have similar but capped at 500k Qatar ryals. Some airlines have a different set up with a provident fund which is like a superannuation accumulation fund. The only specific example I have for someone who has above the minimum which for her is zero, is our nanny who after 8 years is retiring and we agreed at the start we would pay her 1x what we paid her in her first month (which is half of what she gets now) per year. This is not in her employment contract (yearly) but is purely a good faith agreement.

    So how did Australia win

    DL method. Don't know exactly how it works but is based on runs and resources. NZ being 9 for would sway it easier towards OZ.

    Hayne to NFL

    While a rugby follower myself, don't assume the tackling and hits in Gridiron are anything like rugby. They are far more Savage in intent. There is a no pad league of American Football and the tackles are much more like rugby. Comparing the two is a waste of time.
