Swap out your system for a new one.  Used auto parts Victoria outlets are a great place to find a quality system at an affordable price.  Revamping Performance Having a vehicle that loses power is discouraging, and can be dangerous at times.  Revamping your vehicles performance by replacing old components with used car parts Victoria is a great way to improve its performance.  Recycled parts are affordable, and one that allows you to replace things that will enhance the performance of your vehicle.  Do a check up on your vehicle and consider if replacing components like the alternator, air flow sensor, fuel filter and other easy to replace components will make a difference in its performance.   With a few upgrades to your vehicle that aren’t necessarily costly, you can improve the look, feel and performance of your vehicle.

Buy Subaru Used Car Parts in Melbourne to Repair Your Car 2017-01-18T00:07:48Z buy-subaru-used-car-parts-in-melbourne-to-repair-your-car Getting your car fixed up can be relatively cheap if you undertake the task yourself. Don’t spend your money on brand new parts when there are quality used parts available. The team at Atlas Car Removals salvage parts and re-condition them to sell at affordable prices. Here’s how to determine where to buy Subaru parts to repair your car.   Try Your Dealership If you’ve got a Subaru you can get in contact with your dealership and they will be happy to assist. If they haven’t got the part they will order it in for you. When you buy through them they will provide a warranty if you experience any problems. Whilst this is somewhat convenient and guarantees you’ll have a part in excellent condition, it’s a really expensive option. You don’t have to compromise on quality when looking at used Subaru parts in Melbourne. Sparing yourself the extra expense of purchasing new is unnecessary when you can get a second hand part in great condition.  Head Online Internet shopping is very popular and is another option when looking at purchasing a particular car part. You can search for it and find thousands of sellers to ensure you get the cheapest price. Whilst you can save big bucks on parts using this way you can’t be 100% sure about what you have bought. There’s no guarantee the part will do what it should. It could be damaged or in poor condition. Saving money on second hand Subaru parts is a good idea; however, this should be done by compromising on quality.  Find a Reputable Used Parts Dealer If you want a reasonably priced and quality part for your car without the headaches that can come with online shopping try your local second hand parts dealer. An experienced used parts dealer will have a large inventory that has a large range of parts. Having a record of all of their parts makes it easy for you to chase particular used Subaru parts in Melbourne. Unlike internet shopping you know you are getting a great product as their knowledgeable technicians recondition the part before selling. Ring around to find the part you are after and pick up the part on the same day.  Buying brand new parts is expensive and when you can get a used part that does the same job it makes sense to opt for second hand. The internet can assist with your search for second hand parts but doesn’t assure you of the state it’s in. Phone or visit your local auto parts dealer to check if they have the part. If you are looking for Second Hand Parts for Cars Total Car Removals will be able to assist you.

The Leukaemia Foundation’s investigation shows the number of Australians dying from blood cancer is now DOUBLE those losing their life to melanoma¹. Latest statistics show 4,412 people nationwide died from blood cancer in 2015, compared to 3,700 in 2006 – an increase of nearly 20 per cent¹. In NSW alone, 1,477 people died in 2015, compared to 1,254 in 2006 – an increase of 18 per cent¹. Blood cancer remains the leading cause of death children aged 1-141, along with drowning. It also affects older people, particularly those aged over 55. While more children are surviving, almost half of adult blood cancer patients will lose their life. The Australian Institute of Family Studies predicts by the turn of the next century a quarter of the population of Australia will be aged 65 years or older, compared to around 15 per cent currently². The Leukaemia Foundation’s General Manager NSW/ACT Christine McMillan warned the causes of blood cancer were still largely, and unacceptably, unknown but an ageing population could be playing an important part in the dramatic rise. “More people than ever are dying of blood cancer and I for one am simply not prepared to sit idly by while the numbers keep heading north. Despite being the third biggest cause of cancer death in this country, many of us still aren’t aware of the disease and the devastating impact it has on families in our communities.” she said. Blood cancer includes diseases like leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. “Research into some blood cancers, particularly lymphoma, gets relatively little Government support and so we urgently need to find ways to fund more of this critical work,” Mrs McMillan added. “Thanks to our supporters and fundraising events like the World’s Greatest Shave, the Leukaemia Foundation is able to invest millions into blood cancer research each year - but we need to find more. We can only do that if the community rallies with us and becomes part of the solution, which will see more Australians survive blood cancer and go on to lead a better quality of life.” You can support Australia’s blood cancer researchers by taking part in World’s Greatest Shave in March.

Curtis W. Jackson Announces Debut of “Waiting for Regina” Available on Smashwords and Barnes & Noble 2017-01-17T15:59:11Z curtis-w-jackson-announces-debut-of-waiting-for-regina-available-on-smashwords-and-barnes-amp-noble Adolescence is a turbulent time for many teenagers as they come to terms with a new identity and seek the approval of peers. The transitional period is characterized by physical, emotional, and psychological changes that can be awkward, but also exhilarating as adolescents discover new and different experiences related to racism, bullying, interracial marriage, abuse, and loss of life. According to the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the brain of an adolescent functions much differently than an adult's, because his actions are guided more by the amygdala and less by the frontal cortex. This makes him more likely to act on impulse, get into accidents, become involved in fights and engage in risky behavior. These differences might also be responsible for an adolescent's susceptibility to peer pressure, involvement in risky sexual behaviors, dangerous drug use, and racial inequality.  That concern should be dispelled by “Waiting for Regina” which is a first in a series of anecdotal creative fiction books resulting from a series of digital books that featured a short story titled “Regina, What Is the Color of It?” released on Amazon.com some months ago. The new incredible heart-warming, beautiful, and disconcertingly reflective novel published by Barnes & Noble under Nook Press Print, which is also available in printed format on SmashWords covers it all. From early childhood to teenage years as it opens discussion of history’s long social problem, overcoming the challenges and defying stereotypes typically aligned to young adults, to providing answers to complaints about colorism, which is still practiced in high schools and communities throughout the United States and other parts of the world. Curtis W. Jackson, the author, who spent most of his life living on Long Island is a Bay Shore High School graduate and a student of Full Sail University majoring in Graphic Design, and having lived and learned from different hilarious life experiences in his previous years, he is opportune to demonstrate how teens and young adults can sustain through the roller coastal ride, joys and pains of the many controversial issues confronting them. “Waiting for Regina,” which get its roots from “Regina, What Is the Color of It?” is a past account of a bright, aspiring student named Mispha, and her brilliant and beautiful teacher. A lovely skinned black youth, Mispha, who wrote a letter to her intimate friend Regina struggles for acceptance in a bias affluent society of the latter 1980's. The brave white teacher, Samantha confronts academic pressure as she strives to advance multicultural studies in a predominantly Caucasian community. They face their limitations and find a compromise in a bonding friendship of sisterhood, sealing it in an association with a handsome professor. The novel reflects the hues, tones, and shades of a Long Island schoolgirl coming of age just in time.  Curtis explains, "People should not be scared to read ‘Waiting for Regina’ because of its sensitive themes. In fact, it is my hope couples, friends and families will savor it together and analyze its vital points. I believe readers will discover the positive examples of Mispha, Regina, and Samantha and relate to their human needs for true companionship. There is much more to this novel than the attention it is highlighting on issues of race. Waiting for Regina is a reminder that we all need; genuine love and forgiveness, cultivating the values of honesty, integrity, and courage." Readers will learn about critical controversial issues, ranging from interracial friendships and relationships to social issues. “Waiting for Regina” speaks a lot on the psyche on teenagers and how they should be regarded and cherished; it explores different facets of true love; romance, family and friendships, and telling the truth, especially when it is necessary for the welfare of others. The thoughtful and intelligent book celebrating virtues of truth, friendship, and generosity may sound tragic, but it is scenting with hope.  ‘Waiting for Regina’ becomes a roller coaster ride of dramatic highs and lows, with dashes of humor and unexpecting story twists and turns.

This shocking story is actually a true account of author Cheryl Brealey’s childhood. At age nine, Beryl was taken from her grandfather’s home by the Welfare Department and placed in the government’s care. She was to become one of the white Forgotten Australians. Beryl and her siblings were moved through various children’s homes, including The Salvation Army, Bidura Girls Detention Centre, and finally, the Burnside Presbyterian Homes for Children. Beryl had little contact with her mother during this time. Finally, it was decided that if Beryl’s mother did not make contact with her children, they would become wards of the state and would become available for adoption into a new family, where they would stay permanently. The rest of this emotional journey unfolds in the pages of Cheryl’s memoir. About the Author Cheryl has written this book as a legacy to the resilience and strength she developed throughout her childhood and the transformation she made as she entered adulthood. The original manuscript was handwritten, and the entire publishing process took Cheryl three years to complete. The journey of writing her memoir was a long one, but one Cheryl undertook in order to make her voice heard and to help others:  “It’s been quite an achievement for me, especially at my age (sixty-three), going through PTSD. It took me over fifty years to break my silence; to have a clear voice to be heard; to now be able to help others along their way, by teaching them they can too can overcome abuse, with hope and kindness from within. So, if you have the drive and determination, don’t stop until you have succeeded in what you are trying to achieve.” Promotional Book Events In the Life of Another Day and Time was first launched at Mannelli’s Café at Burnside, Sydney, in October 2016. Cheryl has promoted her book at other events, including a fundraising event at Mindful Origins 88 Gallery, Redcliffe, in November 2016, where $10 from each book sale was donated to the White Ribbon Australia campaign. Other local book signing events have been promoted through The Redcliffe & Bayside Herald newspaper. Cheryl endeavours to continue to promote her book to bookshops, libraries, and charity organisations. For future event information or book signing opportunities, please contact Cheryl Brealey via post.   Community Engagement Opportunities Cheryl has also presented her book and film, based on her memoir, at libraries in New South Wales and Queensland. Her biggest dream would be to have her story on the big screen, to create awareness and to give a voice to others who have also been affected by abuse and bullying. Cheryl has adapted a screenplay from her memoir and is currently in discussions to develop it into a musical. Anyone looking to audition can send their expression of interest via post, with resume and profile. Roles are available for men, women, and children (boys and girls).   Future Books Cheryl is currently writing the sequel to In the Life of Another Day and Time and aims to have it published by late 2017.  Educators and PR industry letting graduates down 2017-01-17T03:30:30Z educators-and-pr-industry-letting-graduates-down Graduates in the areas of communications and public relations (PR) can’t find jobs, are poorly trained and some are exploited by employers, according to the head of an Australian PR firm.   Managing Director of Mercer PR, Lyall Mercer, said he agreed with recent comments by the chief executive of Group of Eight, representing eight major universities, that the system is letting students down and pumping out graduates with “broken dreams and a large student debt”.   “Many graduates are forced into other industries, work in less qualified roles or move interstate or overseas because there are so few PR jobs available.   “Maybe it’s time for the universities to be honest with students about the chances of landing a job in this industry.”   He also believes universities are failing to properly train graduates.   “Students are graduating with very little knowledge about the world of PR and no interest in news and current affairs, which affects their employment chances particularly in the corporate PR field."   Mr Mercer said graduates he employs openly admit they learned very little about their industry at university.   “They are given a degree yet most can’t write a media release, many have poor grammar and communications skills, and they have no idea about even the basics of public relations.   “Several graduates I spoke to recently had never heard of organisations like Associated Press or other major news agencies which is unbelievable. You have to question what they are learning.”   He also said the negative experiences of graduates are made worse by some employers within the industry which can exploit them with unpaid internships that provide little or no value.   “I’m sure some internships are valid and worthwhile, but others are nothing more than illegal, unpaid work. I know of one person who worked as an unpaid intern over a nine month period doing the same work as paid staff.   “Other interns get put in a corner and told to file papers, which provides no benefit whatsoever.”   Mr Mercer said universities could consider working more closely with PR companies to provide better real world education, and those employers who offer unpaid internships should make them very short term and structured.   -End-   Link to referred article – comments by Group of Eight - http://www.news.com.au/finance/work/careers/easier-access-to-university-has-devalued-degrees-created-huge-debt-and-made-some-feel-like-failures/news-story/fab0ca689eb920620d9b047fb5d64cb4 Link to Mercer PR - http://www.mercerpr.com SOTI Simplifies Unified Endpoint Management and Remote Support with MobiControl 13.3 Launch 2017-01-17T03:01:04Z soti-simplifies-unified-endpoint-management-and-remote-support-with-mobicontrol-13-3-launch Sydney, Australia – 17 January, 2017 —SOTI Inc., the world’s leading provider of  Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM), today announced the immediate availability of SOTI MobiControl 13.3.

It’s designed to be managed with ease, reliability, and security - making it ideal for high-traffic enterprise environments including digital signage, POS, self-service kiosks, corporate communication and AV room control.  The second device, the Chromebox Mini, is the smallest Chromebox on the market today and runs on the Chrome OS platform. It features a solid-state drive (SSD) and can be used as an SME or enterprise desktop replacement, hosting IOT applications, digital signage and kiosks. Being easy to use, it promotes greater control of in-store engagement. Stephen Borg, Global Chief Digital Officer AOPEN Group, says the devices represent a major leap forward in design - allowing a ubiquitous approach to multiple use cases, rapid application development, and ease of use for the signage, kiosk, POS, and other enterprise markets. "AOPEN designed its new Chrome OS device line to empower the customer by servicing a wide range of verticals and needs,” says Borg. “They are enterprise-ready in terms of product longevity and reliability, ease of large deployment, remote access, and service.” Chromebase Mini The Chromebase Mini, an all-in-one 10.1-inch solution, does not require a kiosk protective case, as it is waterproof and tamper proof, unlike a consumer touch device. The enterprise-ready all-in-one touch device supports audio-video conference platforms, such as Google Hangouts. It offers mounting options for A/V or desktop use (including a built-in Vesa Mount stand), high-quality camera and audio, and a dual microphone. The Chromebase Mini is also accompanied by optional accessories such as recess wall mounts, POE adapters, and adapters to mount various payment solutions. By leveraging AOPEN software layer meldCX, the Chromebase Mini is compatible with end-user legacy POS systems - featuring local app instances for offline use and device integration, while maintaining a competitive price point. "The Chromebase Mini achieves both customer and operational benefits. Its aesthetic and interactive design makes it ideal for high-traffic enterprise environments and provides a compelling way for customers to transact. Retailers or Integrators can also use Chrome Device Management to control and manage their device fleets. It means that content updates and management of the devices can be done remotely via the cloud, and its ease of rollout gives retailers an amazing experience," says Borg. "The Chromebase Mini is also ideal for enterprise business solutions. It positions Chrome squarely in the cloud, offering secure flexibility of business cloud solutions and enabling both Google Hangouts and other video conferencing solutions.” Chromebox Mini The Chromebox Mini is a solid-state, ultra-small form factor media player - the smallest enterprise-ready Chromebox currently available. It supports Chrome Device Management, and can be used as an enterprise desktop replacement. Its features include a fanless design, Bluetooth, wide-reaching dual-band antenna, and power button extension ports for ease of mounting behind the device, or having other AV equipment control on/off state. Both the Chromebase and Chromebox Mini are enterprise-grade solutions, at a price point suitable for home use for those wanting a more reliable, silent solution. Both feature fanless/non-venting hole designs, can operate in a wide range of temperatures, and meet Google’s stringent security requirements. "Rather than re-purposing consumer-grade products and support for commercial environments, AOPEN has introduced a design for the Chrome Mini Range that is robust and reliable enough for enterprise deployments across key verticals - including retail, hospitality, and QSR," says Borg.

In recent years, ADA has experienced unprecedented growth and expansion into new markets and defied manufacturing sector trends, reporting a 12.5 per cent increase in staff over the past 12 months. The company’s Bendigo factory now manufactures more than 500,000 garments every year, and has supplied several million garments to clients around the world over the last 10 years.    Previously identified in the marketplace only as a trusted defence manufacturer rather than as an apparel manufacturer working across many industry sectors, ADA has witnessed strong growth in its design workforce and has expanded into new markets beyond defence to emergency and health services.    ADA was increasingly working with multiple applications to map everyday business processes which were unwieldy to manage, store and update.    These applications included a variety of Visio, Word, Excel and PDF files which not only required specific skill sets to operate but lacked the capacity to drive cross business collaboration.  They required separate licenses to operate and naming conventions and version control were unstructured which also dented productivity.   “The ADA business has recently gone through an ownership model change as well as a marketing and rebranding exercise.  In conjunction with these changes and due to ongoing growth, we wanted to extend our processes by making them easy to share and update and adhere to standards so that everyone could engage in the business and collaborate effectively,” says Aaron Cousins, IT Manager at ADA.   Following a market review in conjunction with one of its IT partners, Carrot Solutions, ADA selected Promapp cloud-based business process management software based on several key factors including its rich functionality, strong governance and collaborative functionality.   “The fact that Promapp is SaaS-based also provides us with an opportunity to reduce the burden on our own IT infrastructure while its workflow and collaboration features will support all company processes from supply chain, warehousing and distribution to manufacturing and finance,” says Cousins.  “Although we’re already very mature, in that we have well documented processes, Promapp will add value in supporting the management of the content in those processes.  Staff will now be able to suggest process updates and quickly implement improvements, boosting overall efficiency and productivity.”   Promapp helps organisations build, improve and share their process knowledge from a central online repository.  It drives process improvement by simplifying process mapping, so that teams can own and improve their own processes.  It will specifically enable ADA to map, review and improve processes on an ongoing basis, providing a faster, smarter way to deliver a range of appropriate and well-planned services to clients wherever they may be located.   Promapp will be deployed within the organisation’s design, contract management, customer service, operations, finance and IT teams as well as a team working on its in-house rapid prototyping capability and manufacturing capacity. Promapp will also support processes managing research and development, design, innovation, sampling, sourcing, manufacture, ordering, inventory management, warehousing, dispatch and reporting. “ADA embeds the conditions for innovation through our culture. Every staff member has a responsibility and is empowered to contribute to the ideas, research, and exploration that are a part of the everyday business environment.  Promapp will play a critical role in supporting our emphasis on ideas and innovation,” says Cousins. ADA was established in 1912 as the Commonwealth Government Clothing Factory, responsible for the manufacture and supply of uniforms to Australia’s fighting forces through two world wars and many other conflicts.  It played an instrumental role in creating what has become the iconic visual image of the Australian ‘digger’. Wes Cassidy, Director, Carrot Solutions, added, “We love to help companies improve their business processes by providing advice and software solutions that increase staff productivity, reduce operating costs, and provide potential for growth.  Promapp was an ideal solution for ADA.”  About Promapp Established in 2002, Promapp Solutions works with hundreds of organisations worldwide to foster a thriving business improvement and process management culture.   Promapp’s cloud-based business process management (BPM) software makes it easy to create, navigate, share, and change business processes, including quality assurance, risk management, human resources, and business continuity. Providing an intuitive online process repository, an integrated process mapping tool, and a process improvement toolset, Promapp’s proprietary software supports the development of smarter and safer ways to work, while encouraging sharing of information by operational teams rather than limiting it to process analysts and technical specialists.   Promapp’s wide range of public and private sector customers includes: Coca-Cola Amatil, WesTrac, Roy Hill, Air New Zealand, Lumo Energy, Toyota Financial Services, Ricoh Australia, McDonald's, Audi Australia, Fuji Xerox, City of Karratha and Department of Justice, Victoria.  The company is headquartered in Auckland, New Zealand.  www.promapp.com ENDS
