The PRWIRE Press Releases http:// 2017-02-21T02:20:13Z Tech21 brings parents unlimited fun family time with Evo Play 2017-02-21T02:20:13Z tech21-brings-parents-unlimited-fun-family-time-with-evo-play SYDNEY, 21 February, 2017 – Tech21, the leader in impact protection for mobile devices has launched its new range of cases for the iPad in Australia: Evo Play. “Kids + iPads” isn’t always the safest pairing if your iPad isn’t protected, but it can certainly be one of the most fun for inquisitive minds. 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.

Britannia.  She set sail from Liverpool bound for Halifax and Boston to inaugurate the first regularly scheduled transatlantic service.  Britannia was a steam powered liner, the first of four ships designed to operate these crossings. Maritime Author Chris Frame says this voyage changed the way people travel forever,  "175 years ago this first regularly scheduled crossing changed the world. It changed the way people travel. For the first time in history there was regular and safe travel by steam ship. It was a revolution because now people could plan their travel around a reliable schedule. " These early steam ships were vastly different from the cruise ships in service today. There was no luxury on these early Cunard ships. They were purposely built to be as simple as possible, with cargo storage taking up much of the space. Passengers shared cramped quarters, and there was a cow carried aboard for milk and chickens for eggs as commercial refrigeration hadn't been invented yet.  Over the years, many other lines were established and thousands of ships were built. The great ocean liners helped drive change in society, being instrumental in the immigration booms to the USA, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia.  Ocean Liners were also used to pioneer and perfect many technologies, with wireless radio, electric call bells and turbine engines all utilised aboard liners before they were widely adopted on land. These great ships were also used during both world wars, as Maritime Author Chris Frame reflects, "During both wars, the ocean liners were used by the military as troop ships."  He continues, "Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth were converted for use as troop ships in World War II and could each carry over 16,000 people per crossing. Winston Churchill actually acknowledged their impact on the allied war effort, saying they helped shorten the war by at least one year." To learn more about the ocean liner please visit www.chriscunard.com or you can hear Chris Frame's full one hour interview on the subject at ABC's conversations page: http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2015/07/01/4264798.htm  Stanthorpe Rocks Ramps It Up 2015-04-01T07:34:09Z stanthorpe-rocks-ramps-it-up Stanthorpe Rocks Ramps It Up The third annual Stanthorpe Rocks festival in November has just ramped up to a whole new level and the Slydogz Eventz team released a host of announcements this week that have festival goers in a frenzy.

JOIN "Australia New Era Party" and chuck them all out! Austerity leads to anarchy when people can't afford to pay imposts of high taxes, double dipping on petrol excise with GST and indexed to inflation every six months. Hecs demands of immediate payment, $7 doctor visit fees, Disability job ultimatums, Death wish on persons 65 years +, Debt levy, Parents and high incomes taxed, Plus possible higher excise and taxes on cigarettes, beer and wine, the list goes on.  But you might say they have put a freeze on their salaries from any rises - Well that's after e.g. A backbencher's salary increased $54,000 to $ 195,130.00 and Ian Watt, Secretary to Department of Prime Minister rose a staggering $40,000 to $844,000! (source Sunday Mail 11 May 2014). Make no mistake these measures will create such high loss of jobs and Canberra runs the risk of becoming a ghost town with loss of 15,OOO jobs and the flow on to hospitality workers, food  distributors and farmers will be enormous. I say again- TUESDAY'S HORROR BUDGET IMPOSTS ARE UNNECESSARY! JOIN "Australia New Era Party" and chuck them all out! The hell and purgatory that will follow must not be allowed to continue for very long. I will reverse all of the above when you elect me and my party! I promise and I don't make promises I don't keep. I can create more wealth and thousands of new jobs and turn the national debt around without imposts they want to apply to you and your families. I know how to save Australia they don't!  ENOUGH ALREADY! I need people to contest every Federal and State and Senate Seats who are sick and tired of  high and higher taxes and now enormous imposts on us and our families.

Alzheimer's Australia Vic has announced the release of a special edition of a new eBook 'Bird Watching in My Back Yard' that promotes bird watching as an activity for people with dementia, their carers and families as a way to keep loved ones' minds active and socially engaged. The eBook is also suitable for every Australian family who wants to involve their children in developing environmental life skills in their own backyard. The special edition is the brainchild of Ron Smith, a Melbourne based publicist who co-authored the eBook with Bob Winters, one of Australia's leading sustainability educators. "The online publication had been written as a conversation piece and designed as a project book for all Australian families,"Mr Smith said. "My personal experience with my father for over fifteen years provided the catalyst to look for a low cost, meaningful and peaceful activity which the whole family can join. This led to the creation of this special edition and fundraising program in support of Alzheimer’s Australia Vic’s Younger Onset Dementia program."
