The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2017-07-20T05:24:37Z Shark Shield technology used at J-Bay to protect contestants 2017-07-20T05:24:37Z shark-shield-technology-used-at-j-bay-to-protect-contestants The world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent technology is currently being used at the World Surfing League Championships in Jeffreys Bay. Shark Shield’s FREEDOM+ Surf units have been placed on the jet skis of officials to protect water photographers and contestants at J-Bay, including Mick Fanning. Lindsay Lyon, Shark Shield’s CEO says, “More and more event organisers are contacting us to purchase our new Shark Shield FREEDOM+ Surf units to prevent unwanted shark encounters at their competitions and we have a significantly better wide area solution in development.” Shark Shield is currently seeking investors to fund the commercialization of their new Ocean Guardian product, a long range shark deterrent. Powered by Shark Shield technology, the world first Ocean Guardian has the potential to provide a complete beach barrier, protecting surfers and swimmers alike. Based on 20 years of research the Ocean Guardian utilises a patented Metamaterial Electromagnetic Transducer, with expectations of repelling sharks within a 100-meter diameter of each unit installed. “We have the technology ready to go, it’s now funding the commercialization through investors or government orders. Our Ocean Guardian product has the ability to replace shark nets and drum lines around the world, stop culling, protect both humans and marine life while giving beachgoers the confidence to get back in the water,” said Lindsay. Shark Shield is seeking a $1M in investment capital to complete the commercialization of the Ocean Guardian, which will also be targeted at the global luxury yacht market, and will be partnering with independent scientists to further validate the company's own extensive testing. “We’ll be presenting to the senate enquiry into shark mitigation and deterrents an update next week on our progress with the hope that the government will come on board to support another world first from Shark Shield,” said Lindsay.

Whether you’re a chef or not, it’s the most important room of any home for practical reasons. This includes our human need to be nourished, no matter what age or social status, as well as our desire to socialise, entertain and congregate. Justine Wilson, Director and Principal Stylist at Vault Interiors, says, “Visually, kitchens are the stand-out showcase feature and talking point of the home. Especially in open plan interiors, this has been a resilient design trend over the last few decades. It’s usually the most expensive room to renovate, but the kitchen has the strongest impact on potential buyers when selling your home, truly elevating the value of the existing dwelling.” Justine shares her top kitchen styling tips: 1. Overall Style The overall tone of the home how you like to cook and entertain ultimately determines whether your cabinetry should have lots of detailing and handles, or if the look should be sleeker, handless and streamlined. If you are a creative cook, maybe a freestanding island isn’t for you as it’s harder to conceal cooking mess! Perhaps a bar height counter will work better. If you don’t cook much, you can afford to have higher maintenance (but timeless) materials such as marble counter tops. 2. Bench Tops Engineered stone and marble work well in both modern or classic look kitchens. Timber can be an affordable option and looks great in industrial or rustic style kitchens. Natural stone is stunning but can be expensive and probably not ideal for a bustling family kitchen. Stainless steel bench tops in a variety of textures is predicted to make a come back, along with tiled counter tops reminiscent of country houses with a modern twist. 3. Added Functionality Consider extending your kitchen to your alfresco area by including a servery window. You can even get the look by continuing the counter material externally so it’s visually cohesive. This is a perfect idea for entertaining and helps create an outdoor room. Consider also adding study nook to the end of the kitchen cupboard or next to the pantry joinery – or if you have the space, creating a butlers kitchen will also provide added function and storage. 4. Contrasting Palette Stick with more neutral and earthy tones for counter tops and combine with deeper cabinetry colours or tones to create a dramatic visual contrast. You can always change out cabinetry doors in the future easily enough, however, under mount sinks and integrated appliances can make it more costly and difficult. Think interesting hardware, bronze, brass and metal! 5. Accents Remember that colour accents and personality can be introduced through funky appliances like Smeg fridges, kitchen aid mixers and Delongi kettles and toasters, as well as feature pendant lights and accessories. www.vaultinteriors.com.au For further information, images or to speak with Justine, please contact 360 PR: Rachel King – 02 9571 4448 – 0423 833 814 – rachel@360pr.com.au We have recently launched Afterpay 2017-07-18T13:53:56Z we-have-recently-launched-afterpay We are so pleased to announce we have Afterpay available After speaking to many of our clients, they suggested we apply to be an Afterpay provider.  Initially we were apprehensive, but after taking with many people, we decided to try it.

The AusMumpreneur Awards presented by The AusMumpreneur Network celebrate and recognize Australian Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation. The awards are designed to recognize the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family. Natalie is a Melbourne based Mum and founder of Miracle Mama, an online resource that empowers and inspires mothers with special needs children. Through coaching, community and heart-centered collaborations, her mission is to create a space for women to reconnect with themselves and what is most important to them. Natalie is a passionate writer, speaker and coach. She also has a background in both the corporate and wellness worlds, with experience in Sales & Marketing as well as being a Yoga and Meditation teacher. Natalie explains: "There are many benefits to balancing business and motherhood. The ability to follow our personal dreams as well as enjoy the precious time of raising our children." Yet the initially she lost the balance of work – life – motherhood, when her youngest daughter Chiara had suffered a stroke. As a result, Chiara was left with a serious brain-injury that would impede her ability to ever walk, talk or live a long life. "All of a sudden my life was catapulted into hospitals, therapies and the unknown. Due to high medical needs of my daughter I could not keep up with my yoga business at the time. Unfortunately, I had to close the business and focus on Chiara and her medical needs. Not to mention coming to terms with such a life changing diagnosis for our daughter and what that meant for her and our family as a whole. A few years on I decided to create an online business, that would be a culmination of my background in corporate, yoga, coaching and writing and deliver to the mums who needed it most, special needs mothers. It can very isolating when you have a medically fragile child, so the power of community and connection for the special needs mums has been incredible. Creating an online business helped to create flexible time and space to combine my work with my most revered role, motherhood. It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family and Natalie gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise. ”Do your research, take your time but never stop chasing your dreams”.

Hey Kids, these are 5 things that work for my kids! Try them and see what works for you! Also, Mums and Dads, this works even better if you show your children the way and do it with them. No judgement needed, just have fun and enjoy the process. When you wake up – be on your own and for 2 minutes - lie or sit down and close your eyes and focus on breathing slowly in and out and from the bottom of your belly. Pay attention to how your body and mind are feeling today. Each day, write a list of 5 things that you are grateful for and then close your eyes and imagine each one and why you are grateful for it. Eat slowly and focus on taste, texture and savour your food. Try this at least once a day to practice mindful eating, which means you will be more aware of what you are eating and why! Take 3 mindful breaths before doing homework, tests, participating in competitions or feeling stressed at school. Breathe in and out slowly and breath from the bottom of the belly. This will help your nerves and you will become more focused. Have a few minutes to yourself each day, especially when you feel tired or overloaded. Go for a walk through a garden or park (always take a parent or big sibling with you so they can help you stay safe, even if they sit away from you). Or just hang out in your room or the backyard and relax and breathe. It is a great way to bring your mind and body back to calm state, especially after a big day at school. If these help you then maybe you can teach a friend to be mindful too!

Many properties owners tend to fear a winter sale campaign. However, we believe it’s a great opportunity to present new listings in a competitive buyer market,” said Cameron. Cameron’s top five tips for enticing potential buyers in the winter market are all focused around the street front windows. His tips include: Bring the outside in: Place indoor plants near the window so when I buyer drives past or looks in the greenery is visible. Double glaze windows: This is a must for insulation and creating a cosy home even on the coldest winter day. Install curtains: Even if they are just for show, the long draping lines of curtains can create a sense of warmth. Invest in a lamp: This can either be a floor lamp or place on a table near the front windows. Make sure you use a soft glow light bulb though. Rugs and throws: Position a throw over the side corner of the lounge and place a rug under the coffee table to give that homely feel. About Nicholls & Co Nicholls & Co is a boutique modern agency focused on the person first and foremost and then the property. They do not work with clients, they work with people. Through personal attention and connecting with people on a deeper level they are able to comprehensively understand how best to deliver the results desired. www.nichollsandco.com.au Anthony Walsh joins Shark Shield as a Brand Ambassador 2017-06-20T23:14:54Z anthony-walsh-joins-shark-shield-as-a-brand-ambassador Anthony Walsh joins Shark Shield as a Brand Ambassador The world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent Media Release - June 2017 Professional surfer, a regular at Pipeline, drone enthusiast and one of the world’s biggest GoPro surf video contributors, Anthony Walsh, has joined Shark Shield as their newest Brand Ambassador.

In a changing marketplace where prices have reached their peak and auction clearance rates fallen, off-market is the new “on” market! Thanks to Property Whispers, no longer do buyers need to struggle or pay fees to access the off-market inner circle, and real estate agents will now be able to reach far more ready buyers, creating a more competitive off-market sales process so the property can sell more quickly. This off-market property match-making service is now available to buyers and real estate agents by simply registering at propertywhispers.com.au. Co-Founder of Property Whispers and former real estate agent Liane Fletcher says, “Traditionally buyers needed to be on many sales agents’ databases or engage a buyers agent to access properties being sold on the quiet or pre-market. Now, buyers finally have the tool to access off-market properties that specifically match their purchase requirements. At the same time, agents can now offer vendors not wanting to pay for expensive advertising or those wanting to keep the sale quiet a platform to do so. A positive result for all! It’s a no-brainer for real estate agents and buyers alike.” How Property Whispers Works: 1. Buyers register list their property requirements (property type, bedrooms, bathrooms, parking, price guide, suburb). 2. Real estate agents list their off-market property specifications (property type, bedrooms, bathrooms, parking, price guide, suburb) - only discoverable via a match. No street address is revealed to the buyer. 3. An instant match occurs when a buyer’s property requirements matches an off-market property and the contact details are immediately sent to both buyer and agent so they can make contact. 4. The buyer and real estate agent speak, arrange to meet to view the property and hopefully a sale follows! Online registration is free for buyers to join Property Whispers. A three month obligation-free trial period is available for a limited time for all real estate agents who register online; those who choose to use the website thereafter pay an annual subscription fee. About Property Whispers: Property Whispers is Australia’s first off-market property website, matching buyers and their property requirements with suitable off-market properties in their chosen area, as listed by local real estate agents. Launching in Sydney in June 2017, with the service to be rolled out nationally over the next 12 months.

We also received many phone calls after christmas thanking us for the beautiful work we do.  We were very humbled to take these calls, as they had been given them for christmas and we have our sticker on the box.  The mums felt they needed to call us to thank us for our work and they just loved their pieces.  It was truly a beautiful experience for us.  They emphasised that we must keep doing what we do, as it means so much to them and they wanted us to know how special these pieces really were. http://www.memorykeepsakes.com.au/unique-christmas-gifts-to-a-mum/ Bridal Gifts 2017-06-10T12:19:38Z bridal-gifts Bridal Gifts - A gift to her future mother in law We were privileged to do a piece for an up coming wedding in Singapore in 2014.   A beautiful bridal  gift from the bride to her mother in law. The bride and groom lived in Melbourne and were returning to Singapore to have their wedding.  The Groom was originally from Singapore.  The piece contained a photo etching of the lovely couple and on the back the bride had written a beautiful poem to her future mother in law.  It basically said thank you for raising such a beautiful  man.  So much thought and love went into the piece as we had to select the appropriate piece that would suit the climate etc.  The words we engraved were absolutely beautiful and the photo of the couple etched into the piece was also stunning.  A piece that I am sure is being worn in Singapore with lots of love. A lovely way to start  your future life together, with such  beautiful bridal gifts being given to the grooms parents.  They were totally over joyed with the gift and so much love went into picking the piece.  They wanted to create a forever keepsake to remember such a beautiful day that will be remembered forever. All the family flew over to Singapore to attend the wedding, which made it even more special.  A lovely overseas wedding to allow all family members to attend such a special  occasion. We also recently had a groom come up to  our display as he wanted to purchase gifts for all his bridal party.  He was going on an amazing overseas holiday. To find out more www.memorykeepsakes.com.au
