In the past two weeks we have covered over 180 miles of the Mountains to Sea Trail. But if we were on any other path, in any other state, I doubt we would have made it this far. After we started in the Smokies and Brew got sick on DAY TWO, we knew that we needed some extra help so that he could rest and start to feel better. Immediately people stepped up and stepped in to help us on our journey. We had friends offer to shuttle me to the trailhead, family members took turn watching our kids, once or twice there was food delivered to the trail or to our doorstep.There is something in sports called the ‘Home Field’ or ‘Home Court’ advantage and hiking on the Mountains to Sea Trail it is clear we are experiencing attributes of being on our ‘Home Trail.’ This past week on the trail everything has felt familiar and welcoming. I have walked between Black Balsam and Mount Mitchell and it has felt like playing in the backyard. This is the stretch of trail where I have led guided hikes, gone on Saturday morning trail runs, and taken my kids blueberry picking. For nearly 100 miles the trail stays within an hour radius of Asheville. That has allowed us to spend a few nights at home, do some laundry, and let Brew rest up in his own bed. The fact that I’ve walked every inch of this section already – and covered some of these miles dozens of times does not make it any less interesting. In fact, having a greater knowledge of the trail only makes you appreciate it more. I anticipate coming to viewpoints where I’ve taken photographs in all four seasons, I know the exact forest groves where I can search for the elusive chaga mushroom, and I look forward to passing historic sites and mile markers that tell the story of Western North Carolina. This is the same stretch of trail where George Vanderbilt used to travel 16 miles of MST, known as the shut-in trail, on horseback to reach his hunting lodge near Mount Pisgah. This is where Dr. Ambler, a prominent Asheville physician built an early twentieth century summer home beneath the shadows of Lane Pinnacle and tacked snake skins to the ceiling of his living room, inspiring the name Rattlesnake Lodge. And, this is where President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama decided to take a hike during their vacation to Asheville in 2010.The dramatic views and diverse flora make this a desirable hike for anyone – including sitting presidents and railroad tycoons, but it is the accessibility to Asheville that makes this portion of the MST so special. On my hike this week I met a construction worker, middle school teacher, manufacturing employee, health care professional, and lots – and lots – of retirees. There is nothing exclusive or out-of-reach in this section. The MST is here for anyone and everyone, especially for the folks who live and work in North Carolina. This is our state, our path, and we can all share in the ‘Home Trail’ advantage.
4602/71 Eagle Street, towers above the Brisbane River in the iconic Riparian building.A renowned Sydney-Hobart millionaire yacht owner and skipper has sold his stunning Brisbane “double” apartment in the coveted Harry Seidler-designed Riparian building.Peter Harburg, owner and skipper of Black Jack the Sydney-Hobart yacht that has broken speed records, is a very savvy commercial property investor, with multiple buildings having sold for profit in recent times.But his luxurious Brisbane home base — which has sold for an undisclosed sum — has been more of an escape. The apartment, created by “amalgamation of two apartments”, has had a wide range of price tags over the years from $7m in 2011 to $6m in 2015 $4.32m in mid-2015 to a price guide of $5.2 to 5.6m in May this year. It was then put out to tender with a deal sealed November 23. Black Jack owned Peter Harburg during day two of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race off the coast of Tasmania last year. Peter Harburg put $150m worth of commercial real estate on the market in Brisbane earlier this year. The views seem to go on forever. The veranda look to the Story Bridge and over the popular Eagle Street precinct.

“The actual engagements and projects that students are going to work on is going to give them real hands-on experience in the field of consulting, and not just looking at profit loss statements,” Mollo said. “It wasn’t a traditional consulting case, in the sense that it wasn’t like a very specific market entry issue with a startup, for example,” said Mollo, RISE’s vice president of engagement. “It was a lot of general issues for an architecture firm, which we weren’t that experienced in, and starting that first semester was a little difficult to know where we wanted to go.” “What’s really great is students get to not only network with these founders, they get to meet a founder of the startup to get them to become inspired,” Mollo said. “They can see what these founders are doing. Just talk with them.” “They’re going to learn not just how to show up and listen to us and take notes, but they’re going to learn how to lead and innovate and implement their ideas,” Hsu said. While RISE has only just started, its founders have big plans to expand and improve, hoping to eventually becoming the premier consulting group on campus. The organizations will work with four new start-ups this semester: TruStory, a debate and social network startup; Alpha Aerospace, a drone company run by a USC alum; We Strive, a fitness platform and Robust Choice, a win/loss analysis firm. Getting RISE off the ground presented a few challenges as the club’s founders had to seek potential clients via LinkedIn and startup websites. CORRECTIONS: A previous version of this article misspelled TruStory’s name. It has since been updated with the correct spelling. When then-sophomore Jonathan Lu looked through the list of consulting services group students could join at USC, he realized that none of them cater to startups, a market that he saw potential to grow. “Long-term goal [for the organization], I’m going to guess like 40, 50 people is like a base for how many students we want,” Lu said. “Clients-wise, probably like eight a semester would be really awesome.” Lu said he hopes to eventually double the organization’s size. Each project lasts 10 weeks, allowing RISE to help its clients through the course of the semester to optimize business and pricing models and create promotional materials. Lu said RISE plans to check in with former clients after their plans are implemented to evaluate their work and progress. A lot of the learning process, however, will be taught throughout the semester as the analysts and engagement managers work with each business. RISE Consulting will partner with startup companies to create promotional materials and pricing models for clients. Jonathan Lu (far right), the president and co- founder, is pictured with members John McCubbin, Chloe Hsu and Zach Mollo. (Photo courtesy of RISE Consulting) Within the organization, members are broken up into four- to five-person subgroups called engagement teams, which are headed by a manager and partnered with one of the four start-ups. This semester, the four founding members of RISE are assuming the managerial roles and leading their new members, whom they call “business analysts,” through the workshops at their weekly three-hour meetings. “Based on the semester, obviously as an up-and-coming organization, there are always problems to tackle,” Mollo said. “But the future of RISE? It’s pretty bright.” “When we first started the org, it was hard to reach out [to startups],” Mollo said. “Our brand wasn’t really that developed. We didn’t really know a lot about consulting and bringing in different founders and things like that.” Since RISE doesn’t charge its clients for the services it provides, Lu said the organization has also considered hosting funding initiatives to build a budget and pay for training and development opportunities like guest speakers. The story also incorrectly stated that TruStory is a literary startup. According to Lu, TruStory is a debate and social network startup. He then talked with his roommate Zach Mollo as well as Chloe Hsu and John McCubbin, and the group created RISE Consulting, a student organization that provides free consulting services for startups. Now in its second semester, RISE, or “Rebels, Innovators, Startups and Entrepreneurs,” is recruiting new members and accepting online applications for the first time and hopes to bring about 20 students onto its team. Last spring, the organization’s sole client was M. Todd Architect, an architecture firm based in Brooklyn. RISE co-founders Lu, Hsu, McCubbin and Mollo, now juniors at USC, worked with the startup last spring to develop a pricing model and recommend marketing materials and promotional strategies. Along with teaching its members consulting and business skills, Hsu said the co-founders hope to teach new members how to run the organization, so that after she and her fellow co-founders graduate in 2021, the organization can remain established. Hsu, the vice president of administration, said the organization will accept students with any level of consulting experience. The organization will hold workshops to teach new members consulting skills like presenting data, making a pitch deck and researching for their case. “Maybe three months later, we’ll check in and ask, ‘What are the results?’” Lu said. “We always want to do that and be able to offer that advice, just so we can have those relationships going.” Mollo said over 60 students have applied and the executive board will hold group and individual interviews where applicants will work on a case to decide its new membership. The Daily Trojan regrets these errors.
Accra Hearts of Oak physiotherapist Okyere Baffour Agyei has confirmed that defender Isaac Oduro has been ruled out for 10 weeks.The defender fractured his fibula in the fourth minute of the club’s MTN FA CUP match with Samartex on Saturday.Oduro was playing his second match of the season, and was on his first full start, after he had recovered from an ankle injury.However, the defender could not last the opening minutes of the game as he unluckily succumbed to another injury blow.“Isaac Oduro from our match with Samartex had an injury in the early stages of the game and we quickly rushed him to the Samreboi Hospital,” Baffour told facebook.com/accraheartsofoak.“We took an X-ray from there the Doctor realized there was a fracture to the fibula – the distal one-third – so they gave him medication and took him to the theatre to put his leg in a cast. At the moment, we are going to see an orthopaedic specialist and then we will carry on from there. “We know for a normal bone fracture injury, it takes six weeks to come out of the cast and also depending on how the healing goes, the rehabilitation too will take a number of weeks; so normally, and at best, by the 10th week, if everything goes according then he should return to training – so that is what we are looking at, at the moment.”The Hearts physiotherapist has also advised Isaac Oduro on a number of things he would have to do to help his recovery rate.Baffour said: “I have been speaking with him and he tells me how he moves or sleeps so I have advised him with his posture in the house, even using the clutches, how he lies down, how he sits down and how he should position the leg in sleeping, sitting, and even walking. I have advised him on his diets also because that will also influence the rate of healing.” –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH. Our hashtag is #JoySports
