The kitchen features timber finishes and seamlessly opens into the courtyard which is visible throughout the house. A black marble seat inset with lighting and water creates a unique sculpture in the courtyard. “The marble seat doubles up as a water feature and it was all the work of designer Paul Bangay,” Ms Robinson said. 49 Monaco St comes with an elegant style “It’s a funny story because Paul and I were originally the neighbours to this home,” she said.“We were at No. 47 and we were there for 23 years so we really didn’t move very far after two decades.”Ms Robinson said it was the waterfront lifestyle she loved most about Monaco St. “There are a lot of wow factors but the design is all about capturing the marvel of the river,” she said. last_img read more

FCC Tackles Blackout Rule; May Not Change NFL Stance

first_imgWASHINGTON, D.C. – An FCC ruling on the “blackout rule” Tuesday will come as good news to local Bengals and Colts fans, but does not necessarily mean local market blackouts are history.The rule was created in the 1970’s as a method to boost ticket sales and block local TV from airing games that did not meet sellout requirements.On Tuesday, the FCC voted unanimously to abandon the blackout rule calling it unnecessary and outdated.The government ruling does not mean blackouts are over but could be the start toward its termination. Tuesday’s FCC 5-0 vote simply means sports no longer have federal backing to blackout games.“NFL teams have made significant efforts in recent years to minimize blackouts,” the NFL said in a statement Tuesday. “The NFL is the only sports league that televises every one of its games on free, over-the-air television. The FCC’s decision will not change that commitment for the foreseeable future.”Outside of an occasional scare here and there in recent seasons, Cincinnati has not had a home blackout since 2012.  It is a similar case for most NFL teams, as there were only two games all of last season that were not shown in the home team’s local television market.last_img read more
