Time to get sentimental: What dads really want this Father’s Day 2015-09-04T07:33:32Z time-to-get-sentimental-what-dads-really-want-this-father-s-day-1 Buying a gift for dad isn’t always easy, with 63 per cent of Australians admitting that they struggle to find the right present for their dad on Father’s Day. New research commissioned by leading photographic company FUJIFILM Australia, sheds light on what our Fathers really want in 2015, with sentimental, hand-made gifts being at the top of the list! The Fujifilm Father’s Day 2015 Report reveals that 3 in 4 Fathers want something that they can keep this year, like a printed photo, with 61 per cent hoping to receive a hand-made gift on Father’s Day. While 8 in 10 Australians agree that a printed photo is the perfect thoughtful gift, the Report found that a third of Australians did not print any of the photos they took in the last year. As a result, FUJIFILM is encouraging all Australians to ‘Print-a-memory’ this Father’s Day and create something thoughtful to show dads that you really care. Jodi Anasta, mother of Aleeia (one), wife of Braith and Fujifilm Print-a-Memory Ambassador for The Fujifilm Father’s Day Report 2015 said: “I think it’s wonderful that our fathers still value sentimental gifts. I remember making dad crafty things at school.  As this will be Braith’s second Father’s Day, Aleeia and I want to make him a photo album of our last year as a family to thank him for being such a wonderful father. It doesn’t need to be expensive; it’s the thought behind creating something special that they can cherish that counts.” While most Australians will spend an average of $66.95 on a Father’s Day gift this year, the good news is that hand-made and sentimental gifts can be a labour of love, without needing to break the budget. With Father’s Day this Sunday September 6, 2015, the majority of Aussies (63 per cent) are struggling to find the right present, with 1 in 6 making it a last minute decision, not planning anything until the day before, or the day itself. Photo Printing Services powered by FUJIFILM technology, available in major Australian retail (Harvey Norman & Big W) and independent stores, offer affordable and easy-to-use customised photo printing gift ideas, from as little as $4.95, with some gifts taking no more than 10 minutes to produce. Making the process even easier for time poor Australians around the country, FUJIFILM Australia have developed an App called TransPix®, which allows you to print on the spot in-store, straight from your mobile phone directly to a photo printing kiosk. They have also developed the Imagine Platform, for customers who want the convenience to print their photos online or via their mobile phone remotely. This September, give dad something he really wants and ‘Print-a-Memory’ that he can cherish.

Truth is they trained hard to earn their place on our stage and screens.”  With a focus on working with the actors individual goals, Dear John’s Adult Actor Training course is perfect for the actor who is starting out, but also for the actor who is seeking to polish their skills or re- enter in industry. “Much like working out in a gym, this course is focused around providing the actor with training; enabling them to develop a toolkit of skills to apply to scripted and improvised scenes” said Amanda. The nine week course will have a focus on honing skills such as the ability to interact and react, the ability to create character and shape a scene, articulation and verbal dynamics, script analysis, an introduction to the casting process and many more skills.  Throughout the course, actors will have access to the Basecamp platform, allowing direct contact with teachers and fellow students, as well as giving teachers the opportunity to provide individual feedback, and provide additional resources outside of the weekly class. “The Basecamp platform is going to be an incredibly valuable tool, it’s going to allow our students to seek advice, ask questions and receive resources outside of the rehearsal room - We think it’s really going to make a difference” said Amanda. Dear John’s Adult Actor Training class commences 10th October, run for nine weeks, and will cost $229.50 per term.

If the owners of Seachange Village Arundel have their way, 100% of their homeowners will get sufficient exercise. Seachange Village Arundel is an active adult community in Arundel. It is built around the concept of friendship, fun and fitness; their residents feel they have already accomplished their mission of being the best over 50’s lifestyle community on the Gold Coast. Seachange Village Arundel was designed from the start to be at the top of active adult lifestyle communities. They offer a plethora of world class amenities that encourage their homeowners to be active far into their retirement years. They offer such amenities as golf putting greens, a pool and sauna, a bar and even a yoga studio to help nourish the mind, body and soul. David Pradella, the Managing Director of Seachange Village Arundel, feels it is important for anyone over 50 to stay active. According to Mr Pradella: “We have known about the statistic that only 10% of people over 50 get enough exercise for a long time now. We have also been aware of studies suggesting that much of the things we lose during the ageing process aren’t actually the result of ageing, but of a sedentary lifestyle. We aim to change that for our residents.”In a recent blog post, Mr Pradella mentioned Better Health Channel, an online medical information resource that was created by the State Government of Victoria. The website contains a wealth of information, including a very helpful post about the effects of exercise on senior citizens. According to Better Health Channel, those who pass the age of 50 tend to lose 3.5 kg in muscle mass every ten years. However, weight resistance exercise can stem the tide and actually allow seniors to increase their muscle mass if they so desire. The website also mentions many ways in which exercise can improve the senior lifestyle. As little as 20 minutes of walking per day can have a profound effect on lifespan and quality of life. In addition, those who exercise more tend to retain their independence longer than those who don’t. Exercise also reduces the number of times one is likely to become ill and also helps one recover faster when he or she does become sick.According to Mr Pradella: “There are plenty of benefits to exercising. It helps your muscles, bones, lungs, heart and joints. Exercise is one of the few documented ways in which one can stem the tide of time and who doesn’t want to do that.”Mr Pradella concluded, “Exercise helps you live longer and better. That is why we promote an active lifestyle at Seachange Village Arundel.”Seachange Village Arundel is a luxury lifestyle community for active over 50’s in Arundel. They offer an active lifestyle, a gated community and world class amenities for their homeowners. Located at the centre of an area of the Gold Coast known as the northern growth corridor, they offer fast, easy access to M1, the Helensvale railway station, shopping, medical facilities and some of Queensland’s finest golf courses.

The puppet style show is inspired by the hit TV series based on the extremely popular ‘Ninjago – Masters of Spinjitsu’ and will be brought to life on stage with puppetry, video mapping, illusion, stage effects, all the characters, and music. The 20 minute show will feature a total of six puppets, each standing at approximately 1.2 meters in height with every puppet carefully crafted and hand built by specialists. Scripted by award-winning Hollywood movie writers Kevin and Dan Hageman (who also wrote The LEGO Movie and the Ninjago™ TV series), the show has been created by an international team from seven countries. LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort General Manager Mark Germyn said, “We are very proud to be the first LEGOLAND Park in the world to launch this attraction, and especially something of this scale. I’ve seen the work that goes behind the scenes, and we know that our visitors are in for a real treat – the mixture of technology with traditional Bunraku style puppetry is quite innovative and the storyline should be a thrill for the children.”   The original series is set in the fictional world of Ninjago where the land is divided between Ninjago and the Dark Island, where the Overlord resides. It has an underworld, where beings of evil like Lord Garmadon and the Skullkins, dwell, together with sacred places where many things are hidden or forgotten. When the fate of their world is challenged by great threats, it's up to the Ninjago warriors to defend their land at all cost. This storyline was shown in the new 10 episode series that aired in 2015, while the live show will round it off by being the ‘lost’ or 11th episode in the season. In this live show, the Ninjas – Kai, Nya, Zane, Cole, Jay and Lloyd – are on a mission to protect Bandit, a YinYang Dragon, who will one day grow up to be a powerful Light Dragon.

Perth Student represents Australian at International Adobe Design Competition 2015-08-20T05:41:18Z perth-student-represents-australian-at-international-adobe-design-competition 20 August 2015- Certiport (a Pearson VUE Company) and Adobe sponsored the ACA World Championship and Room to Read served as the client for student entries in Dallas, Texas from August 9-12, 2015. The third annual ACA World Championship attracted more than 88,000 entries in total. Students between the ages of 13-22 were judged on their creative and technical skills, as well as their ability to take and follow instructions and communication from the client, and implement Room to Read's vision and message. "We see increasing demand for digital skills worldwide, and the ACA World Championship promotes those skills and gives students an outlet to inspire creativity,” said Bob Whelan, president and chief executive officer for Pearson VUE. "The number of entries increased in the competition’s third year as students realised the benefits of earning Adobe Certified Associate certification to validate in-demand digital design skills.” “For our Australian students to not only get a globally recognised qualification but compete on a global stage is an awesome opportunity and a great experience.” said Richard Gordon, Managing Director of local leading Digital Skills Institute XCERIO. “We are incredibly proud to be associated with this competition and the students who participate and the teachers who guide them.  Not only do they make lifelong friends from at the event, it opens their eyes to a world of new options and career choices.  They know where they stand on a global stage competing against their peers and understand that they can stand out from the crowd when it comes to getting a job in the industry or furthering their studies. Australian representative for the ACA World Championship Kyle Falzon agrees, “The experience of the ACA Word Championships has and will be a deciding factor in my education and career choices. As a result, I am more eager than ever to start working in the industry. Getting ACA certified definitely makes you stand out from the rest! Complex programs like Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign are changing every day and becoming an Adobe Certified Associate shows that you possess a knowledge and control of these tools that others may not.” Next year, Certiport will host the 2016 Adobe Certified Associate World Championship in Orlando, Florida.  Locally, Australian students aged between the ages of 13-22 who pass an ACA Certification in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign may be eligible to represent the country next year’s Championship.
