The PRWIRE Press Releases http:// 2017-06-15T03:11:41Z Beware of headlines promising lower electricity prices 2017-06-15T03:11:41Z beware-of-headlines-promising-lower-electricity-prices-1 Since the Finkel review was released late last week, there have been headlines stating that electricity prices would fall if the recommendations of the review were adopted.   Here’s a warning: These headlines are misleading.   While I am not in disagreement with the review or the recommendations put forward, what I take issue with is how they are falsely being framed and fed into mainstream media.   Based on my extensive knowledge of the electricity industry, a more accurate headline should be:  “Despite Finkel’s recommendations, prices will still rise for most”.   The review actually states that relative to ‘Business as Usual’ (the ongoing and unchanging state of the energy market operating within the present policy vacuum), wholesale electricity prices can somewhat improve from a forecasted ‘worst case scenario’, provided Finkel’s recommendations are adopted.   But here’s the catch: prices for most will not be lower than what we’ve seen to date. Because despite Finkel’s recommended solutions, we’re continuing to operate within the existing policy vacuum, which is pushing prices up.   Additionally, many businesses and residential users have not yet felt the full impact of the increases we have had over the last 12-18 months in the wholesale market. These increases will filter through over the next year or so as larger businesses re-contract and as retailers adjust their pricing for their other customers.   Some of this we are already starting to see with retailers announcing significant increases in pricing for residential users and small businesses from 1 July 2017. Ouch.   In short, for most us, prices are likely to go up before we experience any relief produced from Dr Finkel’s recommendations. ends * Rod Boyte is the founder and a director of Smart Power Ltd.

Whether it’s watching the latest episode of Peppa Pig or navigating through the back garden jungle discovering new wildlife, iPads can open up a world of exploration, but more often than not, a small chip here or a little crack there means that fun can be cut short. Prolong the play time and keep that shiny new look and feel to your iPad even when little fingers have put it through its paces thanks to tech21’s new iPad case, Evo Play. This comfortable and lightweight case has been designed to offer unbeatable drop protection from up to two metres, and with its iconic design, vibrant colours and handy multi-use handle, this case will remove any glimmer of fear you had in handing over your iPad to your children. This case is constructed almost entirely from tech21’s unique material, FlexShock™ Foam, meaning all sides and surfaces are protected from drops as the material moulds snugly to your iPad. Better still, the case is entirely dishwasher safe, so it’s easy to keep clean, and when it’s on your iPad, its sealed outer shell is abrasion/bite resistant, preventing any bacteria from getting in under the surface. “We’ve designed the all-new Evo Play with kids in mind. We know children love to learn, play and explore, and we recognise iPads are a great way for them to do this. However, they may not love your precious iPad back, so Evo Play is there for you,” comments Jason Roberts, CEO, tech21. “Evo Play is lightweight and comfortable for little hands to hold, yet strong enough to keep your iPad safe from tumbles and drops.” Evo Play is available in pink/purple and blue/green colours from tech21.com, RRP $79.95 for Apple iPad mini, mini 2, mini 3 & mini 4, and RRP $109.95 for Apple iPad Air 2. Much like all of tech21’s products, Evo Play comes with a simple promise: it’s rigorously tested to work harmoniously with your iPad. Like the technology it’s designed to protect, it uses the latest science, ingenious design and unbeatable user-friendliness to make advanced impact protection possible. Tech21 calls it ‘Protection Made Intelligent’. ### For further information, questions, or cases for review, please contact: Jim Barker, tech21/Poem Phone: +61 418 163 770 Email: jim@poemgroup.com.au High-res images: Download here About tech21 Since 2005, tech21 has been developing the most advanced, scientifically proven cases and screen shields for mobile, tablet and laptop devices worldwide.

UTRC can employ Stawell Gold Mine’s new unemployed workers 2016-12-13T12:56:40Z utrc-can-employ-stawell-mine-s-new-unemployed-workers Following his Open Letter* to Stawell residents advising them of a misinformation campaign regarding UTRC’s removal of the largest tyre stockpile in Australia, Dr Matthew Starr is again imploring the Victorian Government to take steps that will see the business start employing many of Stawell Gold Mines’ retrenched workers. With up to 150 people losing their jobs at the mine (announced Tuesday, 13 December), UTRC offers Stawell a chance to employ up to 50 people in early 2017.  “All we request from the government is to waive some of the small regulatory fees that UTRC has been hit with, and provide greater support for our efforts to eliminate Victoria’s number one environmental hazard,” said Dr Starr. “UTRC is the only new business of size attempting to become operational in Stawell that can employ up to 30 per cent of the newly unemployed.  “UTRC is the best option for the unemployed workers who now face a very unhappy Christmas and New Year, with a bleak outlook for 2017.” The Stawell tyre stockpile comprises almost 9 million tyres, which UTRC purchased in June 2015 to create a new, environmentally-friendly, clean-tech facility to recycle the tyres. Dr Starr added, “We intend to support the workers of Stawell for the long term and as UTRC in Stawell has been classified as a Transfer Station for Victoria's used tyres, we can assure the town that there will be jobs well into the future.” * You can view the Open Letter, which is being delivered this week, at http://utrc.com.au/open-letter-to-stawell-residents/ and a copy should be attached.

Australian Businesses Edging Toward Environmental Sustainability 2016-08-02T06:59:54Z australian-businesses-edging-toward-environmental-sustainability Environmental consideration and government incentives have pushed a growing amount of businesses towards eco-friendly services over the last decade. This will not come as much of a surprise when considering the sustainability crisis that Australia has found itself in over the last few years, which has threatened to impact the country’s effect on both pollutants and global warming in an oversized way over the coming years. While this trend toward feasible environmental solutions is still in need of growth and development, there are several different services that have made their way to the forefront of this positive corporate upheaval. The Boons of LED Lighting While heading toward a more viable retail sector and working off a similar residential initiative that recently concluded, the Australian government has made changes to the VEET scheme (Victorian Energy Efficiency Target) that have allowed businesses to develop their environmental strategies further without the significant loss in revenue that has caused hesitation for companies in the past. This has led to qualifying companies like LEDified being able to transfer to energy efficient LED lights at a drastically reduced cost, shrinking their environmental impact while lowering overall energy costs across the board. Reuse and Recycling of Printer Cartridges Taking into special consideration the impact that non-biodegradable substances can have over a relatively short period of time, more distributors and manufacturers of disposable cartridges have been finding ways to personally recycle these products at the end of their working life. This recycling of resources has most often taken the form of ink cartridge collection programs, either giving consumers the option of sending their depleted cartridges to be broken down and reused, or collecting them in bulk from participating companies. Not only has this process of re-use had an impact on the amount of ink and toner cartridges making their way to landfill or similar areas, but it has also cut the overheads of these companies and allowed them to keep at least a portion of their resources renewable in the process. This has also pushed manufacturing of reusable cartridges, cutting costs for both the customer and manufacturer while allowing the same cartridges to stay in service for much longer than their disposable counterparts. Solar Energy Success While they have become more prominently known for their residential use in recent times, solar panels have achieved an unprecedented amount of public awareness, with an estimated one in every five Australians utilising solar for a percentage of their electricity use. This figure, while still shy of the Australian government’s eventual goal, has meant that almost 15% of all Australian power usage is solar as of 2015, and with similar initiatives put in place for wind and hydro power, we can expect the percentages of renewable energy to rise consistently for the near future. Australia’s record on climate science and carbon emissions have been less than ideal on the world scale recently, however the efforts of these businesses to maintain a sustainable environmental future should give us hope that we are heading in the right direction. eVestigator® Cyber Forensics Expert Simon Smith says 'POKÉMON NO' to Augmented Reality 2016-07-26T10:36:16Z evestigator-r-cyber-forensics-expert-simon-smith-says-pokemon-no-to-augmented-reality PRESS RELEASE 26/7/2016 CYBER FORENSIC EXPERT ISSUES NATIONAL SECURITY WARNING EVESTIGATOR CYBER FORENSICS EXPERT SIMON SMITH SAYS 'POKÉMON NO' TO AUGMENTED REALITY Availability for further interview / discussion TV – Aus-Wide – 24hrs notice, Radio – 8 hrs notice –© Simon Smith 0410 643 121 - forensic@evestigator.com.au.

He is often giving forensic evidence or reports in relation to high-tech computer crimes as an expert witness or private investigator. He has also worked on cases involving child pornography and the police, and is a strong advocate against Cyber-bullying, Cyber-stalking and Cyber-crimes civilly and criminally, and has helped hundreds of people attain justice and resolution in many cases, especially involving children and violence and forensic impersonation. As a Commonwealth Appointed Family Dispute Practitioner, with the very difficult job of dealing with awkward family disputes along with his specialised cyber forensic knowledge and cases as a private investigator, he speaks of cases where he has dealt with kidnapping, abductions, cults, poisoning and more. Never, however did Mr. Smith predict that what he calls “Cybergeddon™” would come so soon. Simon explains the term “augmented reality” in the new Pokémon game as going too far. “Imagine walking in a straight line and a cartoon character appears in front of you. That is simply what it is. A technology that draws a computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world (knowing on their phone where they are via the GPS), in this case a character or an object named a Pokémon. It then uses the camera on the back of the phone to paint the background, so it looks like there is a cartoon in your view”. He further says, “the earth is made up of various known areas comprising longitude and latitudes. These are known to the game and randomized, and the object of the game is to find Pokémon and physically step within a meter or so of it to interact, and likewise, collect other objects in the game”. He further explains that “these objects are randomly placed on or around you are on earth without any data verification”. Mr. Smith asks you to imagine your child, or teenage son or daughter walking around with head buried in their phone, jumping complete stranger’s fences, in and out of their neighbourhood, exploring places they shouldn’t be – knocking on stranger’s doors, asking if they can collect a Pokémon from their backyard. Then he asks you to “stop imagining because it is actually happening now”. He then asks you to imagine a “destination” that may be randomly picked in the game for your child to visit. Imagine if one of these stops was say in the case of America, “The Windsor Hotel in Phoenix Arizona”. Would you be concerned if you knew that in this instance, this was a halfway house for sex offenders? He also asks you to not imagine, and says, “Well, that happened too!” Mr. Smith deals with reverse cyber stalking cases all the time. Finally, he asks you to imagine that a group of bullies had a special directory which told them where a victim would be going at a certain time. It would allow them to lay a trap, and wait for the prey. Of course Mr. Smith says, “let’s not imagine - that actually happened too. In fact, only a few days after launch a gamer was robbed at gun point in dangerous unchartered neighbourhoods because the attackers knew he’d be chasing Pokémon they used game bonuses to lure there.” Mr. Smith, both as an IOS and Android programmer and cyber stalking forensic investigator and court expert witness strongly warns the community and rates this at a risk of 10/10 to any parent. He states that It could be used as a directory for stalkers and paedophiles to find children, and cause danger to society in an already understaffed and underqualified area of policing, being organised cyber-crime. Mr. Smith further states that it could even be considered the “Yellow Pages of Children and Teens” for Sex Predators – it could be easily argued that this is in fact no longer “augmented”. Mr. Smith strongly advises everyone to be conscious of the line that has just been crossed – and understand that crime is still crime even if it is hidden in what appears to be a ‘fun super-artificial method of game play’. “It is not a game anymore”, Mr. Smith strongly states. “It’s dangerous, it’s real and it is most likely in the hands of your children now”. Mr. Smith feels very passionate about the dangers he sees, in his expert opinion, he would strongly “recommend parents remove the game after doing further research” as he truly believes it crosses the line by masking serious cybercrime. He finishes by stating that, “It is ironic that people used to be afraid of the psychological effect of what violent artificial games may have on people, now I’m saying backed by evidence and experience, they should really be worried – because it has now crossed over to reality." This is general advice and not to be taken as legal advice and naturally, not all game players are likely to contribute to this conduct, this is an opinion expressed by me raising concern in this area of augmented reality. eVestigator®, Simon Smith Computer Forensics Cyber Expert – CHFI, Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator, Private Investigator © SIMON SMITH - EVESTIGATOR® URGENT PUBLIC MEDIA RELEASE © CREDIT & PERMISSION ASKED FOR IN WRITING BEFORE USE Please consider the environment before printing FRITSCH Sieve Shakers: Complete your Sieving Requirements 2016-06-01T02:43:45Z fritsch-sieve-shakers-complete-your-sieving-requirements This FRITSCH sieve range is the organised solution to all regular laboratory sieving tasks: three well-conceived instruments may be applied to every application.

This Vibrating Cup Mill is seen as essential when hard, brittle and course material must rapidly grind down to the fineness required for analysis. Perfect for quick sample preparation throughout applications like spectroscopy, geology and ore laboratories, mining and metallurgy, agriculture and environmental science, ceramics, infrared and x-ray fluorescence analysis. With extra grinding power plus a brand new drive concept, this unit is easier to tension the grinding set, offers quieter operation with better safety and is quick to clean whilst easily operated. No other mill on the market presents operators with such convenience: the highest ergonomics present a perfect working position and you cannot match how easily this is cleaned. The grinding sets are extremely light-weight; these don't require direct placement onto vibrating plate at the mill's centre. The grinding set is simply placed on the guide rail and easily adjusts to it's final position. The grinding set is tensions in mere seconds using a thoughtful one-hand lever. These features prevent back and neck injuries whilst saving time and cost. With the manual hydraulic Fritsch Pellet Press, the ground samples can be fast and easy prepared as pellets with a smooth and homogeneous surface for spectral analyses such as X-ray fluorescence analysis or infrared spectroscopy for elementary analysis.
