    Match-winner Cooper Cronk has challenged NSW to lift for the second Origin bout at the MCG, declaring Queensland's superior game management got them home in Sydney. The Blues' attack was disjointed in the final stages of the 11-10 loss to the Maroons in the series opener at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday night, while Queensland kept their shape under pressure.

Because of the appealing pass-through nature of REITs, which allows companies to avoid taxation at the corporate level if at least 90% of net income is paid out to shareholders, a number of companies that aren't traditional landlords are electing to convert to REIT status. Houston-based , which converted into a REIT in January 2014, is a good example.

  • Six-decade war secret unearthed

    For 60 years Albany man Lyall Wilkinson knew where his grandfather’s World War I medals were hiding – he had buried them deep into the soil underneath a jarrah tree on his family’s Cranbrook farm when he was seven.
