He says: “The greatest freedom you have available to you in life is the ability to choose.” A World of Choice, A World of Freedom is based on conversations between Gary Douglas and the global participants of a four-part telecall series. Throughout the book, Douglas discusses the power of choice; how we sometimes avoid it, how we can harness it for greater creative possibility. “Your choice creates your reality. You have to choose the reality you want. Every time you have an opportunity for something, you have to look at it and ask: What do I want to choose? What do I want to create as my reality?”, Gary explains. The book also includes a powerful ‘clearing statement’ – a verbal tool to help you release any limitations, expectations and misconceptions about the power of choice, and how it creates your reality. “As you work through this book, you will begin to see things from a different point of view”, Gary says. “Possibilities will appear that you wouldn’t have recognized before. A new reality will start to show up in your life in ways you would never have expected.” In A World of Choice, A World of Freedom, you will learn:   ·        Why looking for the ‘correct choice’ will limit you in life ·        How choice creates reality, and what you can do to turn your choices into greater possibility ·        Why having a willingness to choose is vital ·        The power of the ten-second increment ·        What you can learn from choosing what you don’t want Best-selling author, international speaker and business innovator, Gary Douglas has become an internationally-recognized thought leader, transforming thousands of lives across the world. He empowers people to see different possibilities and to recognize what is truly possible for them. Douglas is acknowledged worldwide for his unique perspectives on personal transformation that are unlike anything else in the world. He is not aligned with any particular religion or tradition. The Access Consciousness tools are now offered in 173 countries and have been translated into 30 languages.

The newly patented Rotorsonic technology allows sound to be received in zero point time by the listener regardless of a room’s configuration, contents and just as the recording artist originally intended. Mr. Joe Hayes, the inventor of the revolutionary Emergence AS8 speakers which have won the prestigious Good Design Awards in Australia, explains that “because the sound fields spin in book matched rotation around the speakers, a virtual sound tunnel can be created anywhere.” Hayes discovered the unique geometry that has contributed to the Rotorsonic technology tweak that has enriched how the bass in the subwoofers are now experienced and clarified even more precisely the subtle layers of sound in a production, around June 2018 after the company’s US Kickstarter campaign, headed by James Orr, helped move them out of production and into the hands of their backers in New York, Sydney, London, Europe and other cities and states in Australia and North America.  The sophisticated engineering behind the stylishly designed Rotorsonic powered speakers will be refreshing news for music lovers who want to experience the intricate layers of the original vocal and acoustic sound in a production as if they were right there soaking in the complete vibe at the live recording. It’s also great news for home-theatre audio fans who want the feeling of being immersed in the whole cinematic experience without worrying about where or how best to place speakers in their room or whether they should drill holes in walls or have it fall on them from the ceilings.  NewAudio is holding a giveaway contest for discerning sound enthusiasts, to celebrate the release of their revolutionary Rotorsonic powered Emergence AS8 speakers in 2019, so if being virtually transported into unchartered acoustic dimensions resonates with you,  look out for the giveaway on your social media platforms.  May you time-travel well into a Happy New Year, audiophiles!

To make things easier for the average person who does not know much about buying the right type of binocular or telescope the company’s website offers a comprehensive buyer’s guide. This helps consumers make informed decisions about their purchases. The company’s website also offers buyers an interesting choice of accessories for the optical products they buy. There is a good choice of selections for binocular carrying cases, harness & straps, camera adapters, tripods and mounts etc. There are dozens of brands of binoculars with a myriad of models and magnification levels from which to choose. The ultimate selection will depend on a variety of factors that includes where they’ll be used to the age of the individual that will be using them. In addition to traditional models, consumers can also choose from compact models and those designed for astronomy. All binoculars aren’t suited for every endeavor. Some are better for bird watching or while on safari, while others are best utilized in marine environments or for plane spotting at air shows. Procular offers a variety of versatile and durable models from top brands on the market for every use. Tripods are also available for individuals when the need for steady, long term viewing is a priority instead of taking a quick look. Telescopes are designed with unique optics and abilities for nighttime viewing. Those that need to transport their equipment to an appropriate viewing point won’t want a big and bulky model that they’ll have to set up in the dark. It’s important to know that when purchasing a telescope, the aperture size is the most important consideration – not magnification. About Procular We are fascinated with nature. We love the excitement of observing a spectacular moment, crystal clear and in perfect detail.

The Perfectstroke Golf Studio in Molendinar has two full swing training bays and a dedicated putting studio with some of the best technologies currently available. Owned and operated by long time PGA member and former touring professional Mark Officer the centre has available the best launch monitors and simulator systems in Foresight GC Quad and Trackman as well as the worlds leading putting analysis technology the SAM Puttlab.  The putting studio is recognised as the best in  Australia and arguably one of the best in the world and is outfitted with a four camera video system using V1 software as well as an electrically controlled tilting putting platform. This enables analysis of not only straight putts but also breaking left to right and right to left putts.  Mark Officer stated "There is no question that the ability to be able to putt successfully on course relates to being able to deal with all lengths of putts as well different breaks. Fact is that less than 20% of putts on the course are going to be straight so players need to be able to read greens correctly and then aim and produce the same stroke mechanics consistently."  "At the Perfectstroke Putting Studio we can do a comprehensive analysis of a players putting stroke and set up, gain an understanding of their concepts and abilities and then make changes where necessary to improve outcomes." Officer said. The main full swing studio also has an electrically controlled hitting platform to simulate sloping lie shots and to improve swing plane and weight transfer. The use of these technologies and other feedback tools such as Blast Motion, BodiTrack, The Perfectstroke Putting Aid and laser training aids means that players can have their problems quickly identified and remedied. For information on access to the Perfectstroke Golf Training Centre for one on one lessons or the accelerated intensive packages go the website www.perfectstroke.golf or send an email to info@perfectstroke.golf GolfBowls in Australia 2018-12-07T05:06:36Z golfbowls-in-australia-1 GolfBowls is a game that uses coloured golf balls being hit with a putter to a standard bowls jack on a bowls rink. PGA Australia members Mark Officer and Garth Cusick as well as golf enthusiast Mark Bengtson have developed the game born out of Officer’s indoor golf studio on the Gold Coast. “We needed to be able to occupy some of the people coming to the Perfectstroke Golf Training Centre with training when the full swing and putting studios were already being used.”  Officer stated.  “So we set up an area where up to six people could play a putting game using coloured balls with a white ball substituting as the jack. What we found that participants quickly improved their distance control and direction without thinking too much about technique. It wasn’t until a year later that we actually tried out the game on an actual bowls green.” Bengtson and Officer took the game to Club Robina on the Gold Coast where there was an immediate positive response from those involved at the bowls club. They have played three competitive tournaments at the facility since including the Queensland Open Singles title which was won by PGA member Clint Sailes. Others to compete in the Queensland Open GolfBowls title included Jeff White, former AFL player, Aaron Nye, ex Queensland Bulls cricketer, Dylan Campbell, two time winner of the Australian Junior Golf Championship.  The event was open to any age above 12, male or female and all abilities with five golf professionals taking part. The competitive events usually played in GolfBowls are scored basically in the same manner as the same way as in lawn bowls with players scoring points for every ball that finishes closer than the opponents nearest ball. The standard game of GolfBowls also includes the use of a PowerBall which can be used once only in any one game which adds to the overall strategy of the game. After a soft introduction of the game at bowls clubs all around the country it is hoped that local clubs will start their own GolfBowls Leagues competing against neighbouring teams. There are over fifteen different games that can be played under the brand GolfBowls which include games that are more suitable for kids, corporate and party groups, as well as in teams of two, three or four. There are plans for a series of state and national level tournaments in 2019 culminating in the World GolfBowls Championship with all events offering prizemoney to the leading place getters.

Not everyone gets to brag at camp, but to make sure you don’t head out disadvantaged, you should equip your 4WD with a reliable Hercules Recovery Kit and an extremely strong Domin8r X 12,000lb winch! This epic winning combo of not just one of the best value winches in Australia but coupled with a comprehensive recovery kit to help you rescue yourself or anyone else in your group from some serious trouble on the tracks. The Domin8r X 12,000lb winch has enough pulling power to drag your mates fully loaded landcruiser out of mud, 12,000lbs is nearly 5.5 tons of pulling power, which can be doubled with a double line pull using the Hercules recovery kit’s Snatch Block pulley, because of physics, you double the pulling power to nearly 11000kg, and slow down the recovery to half speed, ensuring you have the most control over your recovery setup and can save even the most heavily kitted out 4WD’s on the tracks!   Not only do you make trips away with your mates incredibly easy with the safety net of being able to pull yourselves free, you will be able to perform solo recoveries when you find yourself in dodgy situations on your own, simply disengage the clutch and run your winch cable out to a suitable tree trunk to winch off. This is where the included tree trunk protector comes in handy, strong and wide, it will distribute the force of your winch cable over a large area on the tree’s bark ensuring you don’t ring bark the tree and kill it, this is also a good time to use your recovery dampener, a dampener comes in handy when you are using metal components in a recovery. By acting as an air brake and a weight to both slow potential projectiles that could result from high energy recoveries, and also to drag them low, preventing injury to spectators and damage to vehicles. The Domin8r X has a 7.2HP motor which is run through a 218:1 planetary gearbox, which gives 4WDers absolute control at the push of a button – whilst most 12,000lb winches on the market offer a standard cable operated hand held controller, whilst the Domin8r X also has the ability to unscrew the cable and have a completely wireless control of your winch, which makes solo recoveries that much simpler. On top of the extremely easy to operate function of the Domin8r X Winch the winch drum comes preloaded 9.5mm braided HDPE winch cable, which is lighter stronger and splinter free unlike the steel counterparts available on the market, which makes a weight saving on the front of your 4WD of around 10-15kg compared to old school steel cables. when considering a recovery kit, you need to think about what terrain you think you might encounter, with both the essential recovery kit and the Complete recovery kit by Hercules, you get included; 1 x Snatch Block, 8,000kg 1 x Snatch Strap, 8,000kg, 9m x 60mm 1 x Tree Trunk Protector, 10,000kg, 3m x 75mm 1 x Extension Strap, 5,000kg 2 x Bow Shackles 4.7T each 1 x Winch Dampener with pockets for recovery gear.

Introducing Africa Safari Experts - From gorilla encounters in Uganda to community tours in Zambia 2018-11-26T02:00:36Z introducing-africa-safari-experts-from-gorilla-encounters-in-uganda-to-community-tours-in-zambia November 2018: Travel professional Wendy Buckley had been working in the industry for more than two decades when she first visited Kenya in 1997. It was the start of an enduring love affair with Africa and, in the 20 years since that first visit, she's travelled extensively throughout the continent to countries including Kenya, Zambia, Tanzania, Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe. Wendy was so drawn to the region that she moved to Zambia in 2016 and spent two years living and working as a safari manager in a camp at the gateway to South Luangwa National Park. Looking back on the experience she says it gave her firsthand experience of local culture, life in a remote African village and what it’s like to be a traveller on safari. She also developed new skills working on the frontline of the hospitality industry and hosting safari guests from all over the world. She returned to Australia early in 2018, passionate about sharing her love for and knowledge of Africa, and launched new travel brand, Africa Safari Experts. Wendy is a fully licensed Australian travel agent and Virtuoso member and is able to provide clients with personal destination and product expertise plus the many benefits of her extensive network of suppliers and local contacts. Africa Safari Experts offers a selection of tailor-made all-inclusive packages in Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, Botswana, Rwanda, Uganda, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Egypt, Mauritius and Madagascar. They also create bespoke itineraries tailored to meet a client’s brief and budget. Guests can enjoy classic African safari experiences, remote wilderness adventures, walking safaris, photography tours, private group self-drive itineraries, community encounters, bespoke family itineraries, canoeing and trekking, tours of world-class wineries, activities for thrill seekers and more. The company is committed to ecotourism and contributes directly to the protection of endangered African wildlife and local communities through its conservation and community tours. Travelling with Africa Safari Experts enables travellers to experience and support local protection programs as well as the custodianship of the local people. Wendy says Africa Safari Experts aims to create experiences that exceed all expectations. ‘Whether your dream is to ride horseback through the Masai Mara, galloping after the zebra that cut across your path, stopping for sun downers under the shade of an acacia tree and falling sleep to the sounds of the African bush or to wake at midnight and make the final ascent to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro to watch the sunrise, we can help make it happen.

See How Skillabee is helping companies reduce stress and increase health and well-being of employees 2018-11-05T06:16:42Z see-how-skillabee-is-helping-companies-reduce-stress-and-increase-health-and-well-being-of-employees Stress levels of Australian employees are on the rise. During a recent survey by Reventure Australia, a think tank that conducts research and stimulates public debate about workplace matters, the top three causes of rising stress levels were growing workloads (40%), increasing business expectations (35%) and shorter deadlines (25%). Skillabee is helping local companies in Sydney tackle rising stress levels among its employees. Skillabee offers a one-stop shop for finding and booking affordable lessons with local, mobile, and private specialists who offer yoga, art, dance, music, languages, fitness, sports, photography, and makeup. Prices range from $20 per class to $50. It’s free to sign-up www.skillabee.com.com.au and you simply pay for each booking. During a recent interview, a company representative of Skillabee highlighted the value offering of Skillabee to corporates “Increasing workloads are not going to change. We find employees in demanding professions are strapped for time. Along with a full-time job, they also have to take care of entertainment for their children. This leaves little time to engage in healthy and fun activities such as yoga, sports, fitness, and other hobbies including photography, dance, music, etc. With Skillabee, busy professionals especially ones with children can now select a local specialist and schedule a private class for themselves and/or their children at their own choice of location and time. For companies, there is no catch! They are simply introducing the platform to their employees who can then decide whether or not to use the platform” Skillabee launched in Sydney in July 2018 and has been scaling rapidly. There are currently 300+ specialists in the Sydney region offering fun classes in water colouring, Instagram photography, food photography, pastry cooking, hip hop dance, boxing training, Spanish language, singing lessons for beginners, yoga and mindfulness.

After a busy day at work and a busy evening at home taking care of the kids, mums have little or no time left to look after their own health and well-being. By offering easy access to local and mobile specialists who come to your home, Skillabee is helping mums book in private and fun classes for themselves and the kids. Categories on offer include private classes in art, yoga, fitness, sports, music, photography, makeup, dance, plus many more. Classes are suitable for adults and children. Launched in July 2018, Skillabee is a platform that connects people interested in learning a new skill or hobby with skilled freelancers nearby who are mobile and available on demand. Mums simply have to select their interest, choose their favourite specialist, and book in a class. By offering online secure payment, refunds can be given in case of dispute. Skillabee also offers an online chat platform which can be used to message the specialist to tie up logistics, etc. During a recent interview, a company representative said, “There is no shortage of fun activities on offer for mums.

Whether they want to book a home class at 7am or 8pm on a weekday or 11am on a weekend, we have a number of specialists available to meet their needs” Skillabee’s initial focus has been in the greater Sydney region but is now expanding into Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth. www.skillabee.com.au  info@skillabee.com 1800291006
