Loukas Law owner, Maria Loukas, wants individuals to know arbitration can provide a way to create legally binding agreements without the need to progress through the family court system. During arbitration, a family divorce lawyer Perth stands with clients to provide them with information and counsel. When individuals choose arbitration, points of contention and other aspects of a settlement are decided by a qualified and independent third-party arbitrator that’s completely impartial. Arbitration has a variety of advantages. Going through the court system is a time consuming and expensive process that can leave couples in financial difficulty. It can require individuals to take significant time off work and arrange for additional childcare. Arbitration places less of a drain on the family’s financial resources and it’s a process with which the family lawyer Perth has extensive expertise. Individuals can also set their own time frame with divorce arbitration as to when they want disputes settled. Resolutions are typically more agreeable and details won’t appear in public forums as part of official court proceedings and judgements. Arbitration is less emotionally traumatic for every family member. Arbitration provides couples with convenience, flexibility, and greater level of control over their future. The arbitrator will reach a decision based on information provided by the individuals and their Loukas Law legal representative. It’s a much less formal proceeding than family court and offers a less stressful solution for determining the distribution of property and assets. The use of an arbitrator determines agreements on financial arrangements and spousal maintenance. However, parenting-related issues aren’t within the purview of an arbitrator. Whether individuals choose to use a legal arbitrator or go through family court, Loukas Law is able to provide legal support for every contingency. About Loukas Law We care about seeing you come through your family law process in your best personal shape, so that you can build your best future. We are dedicated to look after you from every perspective, legally, financially and personally. We are your support, counsel and advocate. Our strength will be your solution.

The late Roger Hargreaves founded Mr. Men in 1971, when his then 8-year-old son, Adam Hargreaves, asked ‘What does a tickle look like?’ In response, Roger drew a figure with a round orange body and extraordinary long arms and Mr. Tickle was born. Mr. Tickle then went on to sell a million copies in just three years. Now, 50 years later you can enjoy this special upsized edition of the classic story with a bonus backstory about how it all began. The perfect gift for fans of the Mr. Men and Little Miss series. With a cast of over 90 characters, Mr. Men and Little Miss have been delighting children for generations with their charming and funny antics. Bold illustrations and hilarious stories make any Mr. Men and Little Miss the perfect story time experience for children aged two up. Mr. Men: Mr. Tickle is available now. RRP $16.99. To celebrate the anniversary, the brand has invited consumers to vote for two new characters, in order to shape the next 50 years of the brand. Characters to vote on include Mr. Calm, Little Miss Brilliant, Little Miss Brave, Little Miss Energy, and Mr. Brilliant, and the two who receive the most votes will be turned into classic Mr. Men Little Miss books. Fans can vote for their favourite at www.mrmen.com: Voting closes on the 31st March, with the winners announced later in the year. Whether you have an inner sense of zen like Mr. Calm, are always putting others first like Little Miss Kind, have the heart of a lion like Little Miss Brave, have a can-do attitude like Mr. Brilliant or are full of zest like little Miss Energy, there's a part of a character inside everyone, so head online to Discover You and vote for your favourites. Adam Hargreaves, son of the original creator says: ‘It’s amazing to see people are still connecting to the books after 50 years, they have always been about getting people to relate with the unique characters and identify the different traits of their own personalities, so it’s great to involve the fans and let them help shape the next 50 years of Mr. Men.’ Born in 1935, Charles Roger Hargreaves followed a career in advertising before becoming an author and illustrator. He is Britain’s third best-selling author of all time having sold more than 100 million books, including all the familiar Mr. Men and Little Miss characters.

The survey research found that despite the impact of a once-in-a-lifetime global pandemic, Australians’ happiness levels remain virtually unchanged.  In 2019 Australians reported an average happiness score of 6.9 out of 10, but despite the complete upheaval of life in 2020 that score remains almost steady at 6.7, highlighting a significant level of resilience. The report also found that spending more time with family (42%) has helped Australians recognise what’s important in life, with people in family situations or couples being significantly happier than singles. “COVID-19’s had a significant impact on the lives of Australians in so many ways - financially and mentally. Given the current uncertain climate we anticipated the ‘save more, spend less’ strategy, but we did not expect Australians’ overall level of happiness to be unaffected,” said NobleOak CEO, Anthony Brown.  “As a company focused on protecting families, it’s so rewarding to see proof of the role that family plays in maintaining happiness, especially during times of stress and societal upheaval.” Relationships Australia NSW CEO, Elisabeth Shaw, says that the findings of the report confirm that the relationships we have with family, friends and the broader community positively support our wellbeing. “We are in the main relational beings and as the report indicates, spending more time with family has helped many of us get through difficult periods. Our happiest moments are shared moments and being in good relationships with others has a clear psychological, emotional and physical health benefit.” Despite the massive focus on COVID-19, Australians correctly identify cancer as the biggest threat to their mortality, as they did in 2018 and 2019 as well. But in what appears to be a small silver living to the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in mental-health awareness, with Australians ranking it as the second most important risk for the first time. Nearly half of Australians (46%) surveyed report having their working lives significantly affected by COVID-19, with nearly a third (32%) experiencing reduced income and a quarter forecasting reduced future income.  This correlates with the financial caution NobleOak is seeing with almost half of the respondents (45%) spending less and saving more (38%). -Ends- Access a copy of the NobleOak Whitepaper, imagery, audio, and B-roll footage for broadcast here. Case study: Family of four, Sydney – Amanda (41) and Rob Hodgson (38) and their two sons (6 and 8). 2020 was a year like no other – Rob tested positive for COVID-19 after returning from a US work trip and his wife, Amanda, also contracted the disease. It wasn’t until eight months later when Rob began to experience health problems, that he discovered he had an uncommon heart condition, which was likely triggered from contracting COVID. He now has an implantable cardioverter defibrillator inserted just under his skin to shock his heart to return to regular rhythm if it becomes irregular. As a result of their experience, Rob and Amanda have re-evaluated their life priorities and they both now work from home more to spend more time with family. Despite the events of 2020, they say they are just as happy as they were pre-COVID. Case study 2: Female business owner, Orange – Before the pandemic, Nicole Farrell (46yo) was running a successful international travel business, specialising in tours to India and Morocco. In 2020 she was forced to close her business, and ended up working in a call centre. She decided to re-focus her energies to set up a business offering food and wine tours within the Central West region of NSW. Business is booming – and Nicole says she is just as happy as she was pre-pandemic.

The law firm does more than support clients in court. Individuals are supported in any family law situation and the firm is a powerful advocate for safety, protection, and mental well-being. The experts at Loukas Law provide representation in divorces, separations, and child custody cases, along with wills, probate and estate administration. The law firm provides mediation and arbitration services to resolve conflicts and ensure their client’s financial security and well-being is maintained. The firm oversees cooperative dissolutions when both clients want to part amicably and is sensitive to situations where family violence is an issue. The divorce lawyers Perth understand that divorces and separations aren’t always hostile encounters. Dissolving a relationship can be as easy as completing a form. In other situations, the solution is to seek relief through the court system to obtain a formal divorce decree and negotiate issues ranging from child custody to dividing and settling assets. Many individuals don’t realise that they can participate in a mediation process before filing for divorce or a separation and the court system even encourages it. Family law mediation services can be used to reach a solution that’s mutually agreeable to both parties. It’s quicker, less expensive, and far less stressful. The process can be utilised to address any disagreement or dispute in regard to child custody and visitation to child and spousal support. The family lawyers Perth also provide clients with a network of professionals to address their psychological well-being, while preserving safety if domestic violence may be an issue. The experts at Loukas Law are able to handle every nuance of a client’s divorce, separation, mediation or arbitration requirements. The firm can also assist with strategic estate administration and probate to protect loved ones in the future.

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report shows that relationship problems are the top cause of suicides today and psychologists worldwide suggest that Valentine’s Day on February 14 is the start of an annual rise in suicide rates that peak in April. It doesn’t have to be this way however as there are many positives to being single, as Gold Coast author Louisa Pateman shares in her new book Single, Again, and Again, and Again… “It takes courage to be single and it’s a big myth that when you meet ‘the one’, you will live happily ever after,” Ms Pateman said. “Your ultimate goal should be happiness - single or not. We all have our own unique life journey. If I had waited for ‘the one’, I wouldn’t have had such an amazing life.” Louisa, 47, has travelled to 73 countries, had multiple properties and chose to have her son solo using a sperm bank at age 37 after stressing out about her biological clock ticking and having more than 13 failed relationships since the age of 21. A civil engineer for 25 years, she created exciting and rewarding life experiences through travel, investing and spending time with girlfriends. “I spent 20 years looking for my soulmate and my son, Nicholas, is now the love of my life. I wouldn’t give him up for any man,” she said. Her tips for being happily single include: Embrace/ accept your situation for what it is and what you have Learn to be present- enjoy the moment Find other single people you can relate to but don’t exclude yourself from couple situations. Find opportunities where you can be around people you can connect with, who have lived part of your journey Love yourself and appreciate your self worth. You determine your own worth by what you will and won’t put up with Find inner contentment and the good in all your challenges. Don’t be a man/ woman hater or shun couples. If you are bitter, resentful or hold grudges from past relationship failures, that bitterness permeates your present experience. Find exciting and rewarding life experiences that you can do on your own. When you come out of a relationship, write down a list of all the things you want to do without a partner and do it, like going on a girl’s retreat or writing a book (eg. I was up 10pm to 2am most nights when writing my book). Stay optimistic about life. Have an attitude of gratitude. Be grateful for what you have - big and little things. List things you’re grateful for and realise things aren’t that bad. Look at life from a macro perspective and realise how small your issues are in the overall scheme of things Remind yourself that not everyone in a relationship is happy. You may be better off than some people who don’t have the courage to be single Ms Pateman’s tips are also in line with Singles Awareness Day (or Singles Appreciation Day), which is celebrated on February 15 each year. “It is a celebration of love in all forms recognising the love between friends, family and loving yourself. You have to accept you are where you are,” Ms Pateman said. “I’m not saying you can get rid of your desires. I’m saying if you don’t have courage to live a rewarding life on your own, life could pass you by and you could miss out on a lot of opportunities.” For more details or for a copy of the book Single, Again, and Again, and Again…, visit www.louisapateman.com ENDS ___________________________________________________ MEDIA CONTACT ONLY: AA Xpose Media Director/ Photojournalist Aldwyn Altuney ph: 0409 895 055 Mr. Men Little Miss celebrate 50th Anniversary by inviting consumers to vote for two new characters 2021-02-10T00:20:15Z mr-men-little-miss-celebrate-50th-anniversary-by-inviting-consumers-to-vote-for-two-new-characters A family favourite for 50 years, there’s a Mr. Men Little Miss character (or two!) inside us all, with a diverse cast of over 90 beloved characters to discover.

Doing this can save considerable dollars on the power bill.While dehumidifiers are great for comfort, they also inhibit mould and bacterial growth, which is a big help for allergy and asthma sufferers.The new Vienne ION630 desiccant dehumidifier from health and wellness company, Andatech, delivers an impressive daily dehumidification rate of up to 10 litres a day. The unit can be set to dehumidify between 40 to 60 per cent relative humidity (RH) at increments of 5 per cent, which is a substantial reduction.The Vienne has a power consumption level of 420-740W depending on the mode of operation, which is 20 to 40 per cent less than a portable air conditioner.Suited for large areas up to 42 sqm, the Vienne also has a built-in negative ion generator that helps to freshen and balance the air, and has an antibacterial air filter.[caption: Andatech’s ionmax ION630 Vienne dehumidifier’s control panel]One of the benefits of being a desiccant dehumidifier means that it is easy to maintain with no replaceable parts. It uses a zeolite desiccant that regenerates itself to continue dehumidifying. Emptying the large 4.2 litre water tank is easy thanks to some clever design features, which include a continuous drainage option whereby the supplied hose can take extracted water straight to a drainage source. Various safety features allow the Vienne ION360 to operate unattended, such as fall-down, tank-full and abnormal temperature detection, and unlike air conditioners, it does not emit greenhouse gases.Other user benefits include a 12-hour timer, low noise levels of 35-46dB, and a carry handle to easily move it around the home. Measurements are: 520mm (H) x 379mm (W) x 239mm (D) and it weighs 7.5kg.

Nothing dovetails personal and professional experience about birth trauma together in a way that’s hopeful, holistic and even humorous quite like Author, Dr Erin Bowe’s new book, More Than a Healthy Baby does. 2020-12-08T00:22:08Z nothing-dovetails-personal-and-professional-experience-about-birth-trauma-together-in-a-way-that-s-hopeful-holistic-and-even-humorous-quite-like-author-dr-erin-bowe-s-new-book-more-than-a-healthy-baby-does The Kind Press is proud to announce the release of More Than a Healthy Baby: Finding Strength and Growth After Birth Trauma by Dr Erin Bowe. Not only will the reader feel validated and supported but encouraged in this heartfelt call to action written by clinical and perinatal psychologist, Dr Erin Bowe, who seamlessly delivers her passion and advocacy for post traumatic growth through these pages. Often, how you felt during a birth can be so easily dismissed and the birthing parents gaslighted. A healthy baby is all that matters, right? Not so. There’s room for serious reconsideration to what health means, particularly when it comes to birth trauma. Experiencing and recovering from birth trauma is hard but it doesn’t have to be all darkness and shadow, as this book shows. A delightfully unexpected book, you’ll come away feeling lighter having being offered wisdom, coupled with a stack of practical coping strategies. This book will show you the way to really discover self-compassion and the confidence to celebrate your growth. Where you will feel acknowledged and understood and your trauma can be accounted for. Plus, it offers tips for breastfeeding trauma, sourcing holistic support, vicarious trauma in partners as well as strategies to help with overwhelm and difficult emotions and thoughts.  It’s also the inspiration for parents to become the guardians of change for the next generation. “So much love drips from these pages. It's hard to imagine that a book about trauma could contain so much compassion, coupled with holistic strategies. Dr Erin Bowe takes apart the oft repeated phrase, "All that matters is a healthy baby". She turns around the language that would blame the birthing parent for the trauma they suffer, and gently guides them to a place of peace and/or restoration. She gives no arbitrary timelines for when healing may come. This is a beautiful book, dealing with an 'ugly' subject, written by a woman who cares deeply for those who suffer trauma in the perinatal period.” — Mars Lord “Here is an important voice in the scope of birth trauma. Dr Erin Bowe is speaking to all mothers. An inspiring tool for mamas to help reclaim power that was unfairly taken from them in the birth space and beyond. The teachings in this book are revolutionary.” — Amberley Harris   -ENDS-   More Than a Healthy Baby by Dr Erin Bowe ISBN: 9780648870678 ISBN-10: 0648870677 Language: English Number Of Pages: 272 Published: 8th December 2020 Publisher: the kind press Country of Publication: AU To request a copy of the book or to arrange a giveaway, please get in touch.

CREMATION IS MORE THAN SIMPLY A CHOICE OF DISPOSITION 2020-12-01T00:38:33Z cremation-is-more-than-simply-a-choice-of-disposition Cremation as a disposition process is increasingly embraced by consumers of nearly all religious, economic and regional groups, and the reasons for choosing this option are nearly as diverse as the individuals themselves. However, according to eziFunerals Owner & Founder, Peter Erceg, ‘far too many funeral directors make the mistake of focusing on the economics of cremation as the sole contributing factor of consumer decision making. They do it because their competitors down the road are charging less for a direct cremation than it does for its basic services fee. Don’t be that firm!’, says Erceg. eziFunerals is all about fair and affordable funerals. That’s why we exist, said Erceg. But, if a consumer calls a funeral home and asks for a price for cremation, how do you answer? If a funeral director simply gives them a price for a direct cremation, then they are doing their funeral home and the families they serve, a disservice’, he says. Cremation is more than simply a choice of disposition Cremation is more than simply a choice of disposition. It should be considered as just one part of the funeral process. The choices available to a family that chooses cremation are even more varied than that of a traditional burial disposition, and a family that expresses a desire for cremation should be given the opportunity to understand all those options. For example, a direct cremation should, at minimum, include fees for basic services, removal, care and preparation of un-embalmed remains and the cremation. Families only have one opportunity to have it done right. There are no re-runs and a decision based on price alone has the potential to leave a family bereft and unhappy with how the final disposition of their loved one has been handled. Cremation is not a race to the bottom It is very important to the financial health of a funeral home owner that cremation is not, economically speaking, a race to the bottom. Many cremation providers eziFunerals partner with, are more focussed on providing professional and caring services based on the individual needs of families, rather than by what it costs to provide these services. Our clients understand that premium funeral homes have significant costs/investments in professional facilities and staff. Those are two big reasons why families keep coming to our premium members in the first place, says Erceg. Our member funeral directors may not be the cheapest, but people see value in the services they provide, at one of the most difficult times in our lives.
