Destination NSW CEO and Executive Producer - Vivid Sydney, Sandra Chipchase said, “Australia’s most loved and awarded festival, now in its eleventh year, will bring together light artists, music makers and brilliant minds to showcase Sydney as the creative industries hub of the Asia-Pacific. “This year’s Vivid Sydney program is bold, exciting and diverse, offering something for everyone so I encourage those who want to experience this unmissable event to start planning their trip now.” Vivid Sydney is owned, managed and produced by Destination NSW, the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, and in 2018 attracted 2.25 million attendees, delivering $172.9 million in visitor expenditure into the NSW economy. “I am proud to say our marketing activities saw a record 185,887 travel packages sold to domestic and international visitors for Vivid 2018 - an increase of 37 per cent over the previous year. Vivid Sydney is a must-attend event for travellers and motivates people to visit Sydney and beyond,” Ms Chipchase said. “It doesn’t matter your age or interests, whether it is your first time to Sydney or if you are a local - Vivid Sydney has universal appeal. The Vivid Sydney 2019 program offers inclusive and accessible installations, events and experiences that you can enjoy for one evening or over 23 nights.” Ms Chipchase also announced the inaugural Vivid School for High School students in years 9-12 to assist students to learn more about the creative processes involved in imagining, designing and delivering light-based artworks for this huge global event. “This initiative will enable students and their teachers to meet the professionals behind Vivid Sydney’s iconic building projections and light walk installations, and to hear from artists, designers and technicians about their career paths and how they harnessed opportunities to build their skills for future projects and employment,” Ms Chipchase said.

In a partnership first, Academy-Award winning Pixar Animation Studios will illuminate Sydney’s heritage-listed Argyle Cut in The Rocks with a creative light projection that will delight visitors of all ages as they are transported through a visual feast of behind-the- scenes artwork and the evolution of iconic animation. The return of the Argyle Cut to the Vivid Light program will be a huge drawcard for festival goers featuring the captivating characters of Pixar films, including the beloved duo of Woody and Buzz Lightyear. For this year’s eagerly anticipated Lighting of the Sails, Los Angeles-based Chinese American artist-filmmaker Andrew Thomas Huang presents Austral Flora Ballet.

We're reaching out to you today to see if you can help us generate interest for a very valuable children's charity... Camp Quality. The charity is once again hosting its Camp Quality Convoy Victoria to raise much funds to help children and families touched by cancer. Can you help us spread the word and generate some registrations amongst truck drivers and motorcyclists? A full press release is below (and attached). Below the press release is a dropbox link for images, and associated captions. If you need any of these images compressed and emailed direct please don't hesitate to ask. Kind regards, Alison Treloar Senior Account Manager Seftons 0422 093 639 alison.treloar@seftons.com.au Issue date: 19 March 2019 Camp Quality Convoy Victoria returns to the road again for children’s cancer It’s back! The Camp Quality Convoy Victoria will hit the road again on Sunday 7 April after a year off, with dozens of trucks and motorbikes expected to join the fun at Avalon Airport. Australia’s leading provider of aftermarket truck and trailer parts, Truckline has announced it will continue its generous support of the event and is also entering a special guest in the Convoy. The new International Pro-star demonstration truck will take a break from its tour around Victoria to feature in the day’s activities and is expected to draw a lot of interest from truck enthusiasts. For Truckline’s Territory Business Manager (VIC/TAS) Casey Stewart, this event holds special meaning for her and her family, after sadly losing her niece to childhood cancer at just five years of age. “I’m proud that Truckline is continuing their support of and involvement in this event and to see it back again after a hugely successful 2017 Convoy. It was a terrible tragedy for my family when we lost my niece, so I’m keen to do anything I can to support other families living with cancer,” Casey said. “Camp Quality is an incredible organisation that does so much for children growing up with cancer and their families. The programs and services offered to these children and their parents and siblings have a lasting impact and are such a great help through such a difficult time.” Camp Quality State Manager for Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia, Kendra Overall acknowledged that continued support from Truckline and other sponsors allowed the event to return and focus on raising as much money as possible. “With the ongoing support from Truckline and principal partner Viva Energy, we wouldn’t be able to hold an event like the Convoy and raise the money we do. Having corporate sponsors means all the funds raised by the truck drivers, the motorbike riders and the community at large supports Victorian kids to help children 0-13 deal with their own diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love, like a brother, sister, mum or dad. We are there for them through the daily ups and downs of cancer. We create opportunities for the kids to be kids again: in-hospital, at home, at school and away from it all.,” Kendra said. “In the words of a family member: Camp Quality provides us with the opportunity to escape the daily treadmill of everyday life. To have smiles and laugher in the midst of a dark time is priceless.” Kendra told us. After a year off, this year’s Convoy will proceed slightly differently from earlier events, including the introduction of a Show and Shine following previous feedback. Registration fees for trucks and motorbikes in the Convoy are also substantially reduced this year, making the convoy accessible for participants, with all Convoy entrants encouraged to use the event to drive fundraising from their own networks. The Convoy will start from Avalon Airport at 8:00am on April 7, arriving back at the airport around midday where the Show and Shine and a range of family-friendly events will take place, including face painting for the kids, courtesy of sponsor Truckline. General entry is a gold coin donation, which includes the family activities on-site, and a raffle will be conducted to support the fundraising initiative. The day will conclude at 3pm.

US expert presents evidence for innovative drug-free pain management device, ActiPatch® 2019-03-13T23:39:19Z us-expert-presents-evidence-for-innovative-drug-free-pain-management-device-actipatch-r Mundipharma was pleased to welcome Biomedical Engineer Dr Sree Koneru to Australia to give a presentation on the innovative pain management device, ActiPatch®, which he helped develop. ActiPatch® uses electromagnetic pulse therapy to provide long-lasting pain relief. Dr Koneru is the Vice President of Product Development for Bioelectronics and visited Australia to present the clinical evidence behind ActiPatch® at the Australian Pharmacy Conference on the Gold Coast. You can watch Dr Koneru discussing ActiPatch® on Chanel Seven’s Weekend Sunrise here. “The new understanding of chronic pain is that nerves ‘memorise’ the initial pain from injury and over time, become hyperreactive,” Dr Koneru said. “When used over a painful area, ActiPatch’s pulsed signal is absorbed by tissue and disrupts hyperactivity of the nerves, resulting in lasting relief.” Electromagnetic pulse therapy helps to relieve pain from mild osteoarthritis and general musculoskeletal pain in the back, knee, heel and other muscle joints. It is also ideal for strains, sprains and other painful conditions. The therapy is completely sensation free, with no heat, tingling sensations or vibration. ActiPatch® is drug-free and can be safely used with any other medications. A registry studyi of more than 5,000 chronic pain sufferers using ActiPatch® indicated that: • More than 65% per cent reported a clinically meaningful reduction in pain from a wide variety of causes and locations of pain • The average pain reduction reported in these individuals was 57% • The 3-month follow-up showed sustained pain relief, decreased oral analgesic medication use and quality of life improvement. “ActiPatch® uses low-level therapy to allow 24/7 use and, as it doesn’t require skin contact, can be used over bandages and clothing,” said Dr Koneru. “Can also be used by people with metallic implants and when not placed directly over them, electronic devices such as pacemakers/defibrillators.” Mundipharma recently acquired the exclusive Australian and New Zealand distribution rights for ActiPatch®, reinforcing its commitment to the multimodal approach to pain management. This multimodal approach includes cognitive behavioural therapies, physical therapies and pharmacological therapies. “Mundipharma has worked collaboratively with healthcare professionals to provide appropriate access to pain relief over the past 20 years,” said Jane Orr, Managing Director of Mundipharma Australia and New Zealand. “Our work with leading clinicians and reputation as a trusted medical advisor will enable us to help more patients benefit from this therapy.” The results of clinical trials involving ActiPatch® can be found here. Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional.

It pays to be posture aware and to ensure children are as comfortable as possible when they head off to school.   “What we know is that backpacks shouldn’t be more than 10 percent of the weight of your child.”   “Unfortunately, I see it more than often that backpacks are way too heavy for the child. This puts unnecessary compressive forces on the spine, giving children aches and pains,” Dr Basilio (Chiropractor) said.   Dr Basilio (Chiropractor), a chiropractor in Dulwich Hill and also an Associate Supervisor at Macquarie University Chiropractic Clinic, knows that carrying heavy loads is a common cause of lower back pain and injury.     “Carrying heavy loads and lifting things incorrectly is a common cause of injury, especially if your posture is slightly off in the first place,” Dr Basilio said.   Parents can take an active role in making sure they encourage their children to correctly use backpacks by using both shoulder straps. If you find that your child’s posture is starting to suffer as a result of backpack use, please contact your nearest approved Chiropractor for an assessment.   “As a Chiropractor I find that it’s much easier for the families if they take a proactive role and address their children’s spinal health at a young age,” Dr. Basilio said.   If you are worried about your child's backpack weight, here are a few lifestyle and backpack modifications tips:   Six simple tips for wearing a backpack:   1) Make sure the backpack is the right size for your child, no wider than their chest and no lower than the hollow of their back   2) Pack the heaviest items closest to the spine i.e. the back of the backpack   3) Look for a design with a moulded frame on the back, that when adjusted fits their spine   4) Always use waist and shoulder straps    5) Prioritise comfort and fit over style, trend and colour   6) Don’t overload the bags, or consider leaving items at school on different days of the week   According to the Australian Chiropractors Association, up to 300,000 patient visits are made to Australian chiropractors every week. Chiropractic care is concerned with the diagnosis, management and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health.   Chiropractic is a low risk profession with an enviable safety record in Australia, a result of evidence-based care delivered by five-year university educated healthcare professionals.   For more information on maintaining a healthy spine, please visit the website of the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia at www.chiropractors.asn.au or My Back Relief Clinic at mybackreliefclinic.com.au.   About My Back Relief Clinic At My Back Relief Clinic our aim is to provide quality Chiropractic care for musculo-skeletal problems. We intend to provide a safe and caring environment for our patients. Treatments at our clinic may often involve a combination of  spinal adjustments, muscle work, rehabilitation, ergonomic advice and preventative exercises.  Dr Paula Basilio (Chiropractor) My Back Relief Clinic Web: https://mybackreliefclinic.com.au     - ENDS –   Shop Over $400 On Any products & Get Axius Core Worth $385 Absolutely Free at Fitbod 2019-03-09T05:14:30Z shop-over-400-on-any-products-amp-get-axius-core-worth-385-absolutely-free-at-fitbod-1 This autumn season, Fitness, a credible online fitness equipment provider, is offering a special offer, just shop over $400 product shopping & get Axius core worth $385 absolutely free.

Best Affordable Cryolipolysis Fat Loss Cosmetic Clinic in Wollongong Uses CLATUU System For Great Results In The Illawarra 2019-03-08T07:08:39Z best-affordable-cryolipolysis-fat-loss-cosmetic-clinic-in-wollongong-uses-clatuu-system-for-great-results-in-the-illawarra Australians are taking to the idea of using different temperatures to change their appearance and win the battle of the bulge with a growing number of Australians are opting to get really cool in order to look hot by using fat freezing treatments such as those offered by aesthetic clinics like Platinum Face and Body Clinic in Wollongong, NSW.Giving Fat Deposits the Cold ShoulderPlatinum owners Jacinda McKay and highly qualified cosmetic injections specialist and RN Shelley Stevens, have chosen the freezing approach to shape and contour the body. It does this by eradicating stubborn fat cells which don’t disappear easily, even with careful diet and regular exercise. And it does so without surgery, anaesthetics, or too much downtime, using a medical aesthetic device which changes the temperature of fat cells in the body.From a sweet beginning when scientists noticed that eating ice blocks tended to produce dimples in the cheeks of children, further research and development has resulted in a treatment now called Cryolipolysis (or Cryo for short) and the invention of aesthetic machines that can provide far more extensive results than an ice block. More than seven million procedures have since been carried out globally. The procedure works by specifically targeting the fat cells, and freezing them without any damage to the surrounding cells. The cells killed in this way are then collected and processed by the body before being permanently eliminated over a period of time.How Cryolipolysis Devices WorkCryolipolysis devices are aimed at treating specific areas where obvious stubborn fat deposits mar an otherwise almost ideal body contour. These deposits can take the form of unsightly love handles, muffin tops, bulges on the abdomen, outer hips and back bulges, or flabby inner arms and thighs.And it’s important to remember, that not all devices are created equal! If you are considering cryolipolysis, choose high standard technologies that have been clinically proven to have high efficiency. Look for real-life testimonials (by real people not paid celebrities), clinical trials by medical experts (these should be documented and easily available using a Google search), before and after photos and word of mouth as evidence to support the claims of efficiency. The last thing you want is to spend money on inefficient fat freezing treatments that yield no results! The state of the art CLATUU device used at Platinum Face and Body uses the worlds only patented 360 degree cooling applicators, and has two handsets. This can lessen the number of treatments needed through providing more thorough treatment in any given area, or by enabling two areas to be treated simultaneously.Cryolipolysis Aids to Diet ProgrammesCryolipolysis is not intended to be seen as a replacement for weight loss programmes, exercise, or a healthy lifestyle, but rather as a supplemental process which increases their effectiveness by doing away with pockets of fat that are extremely difficult to remove. Nor is it a quick fix, as results can take one to two months before really starting to show, and continue to become even more noticeable for 30-60 days after that. Additional treatments, when required to treat new areas or extend the work already done, are usually carried out at two monthly intervals.Where the strength of this type of treatment lies, according to the Platinum owners, is in Cryo’s long-lasting effects, as the dead fat cells are eliminated from the body permanently. It also involves little or no downtime, and pain levels are restricted to very slight discomfort sometimes felt at the initial stages of the treatment.Further InformationTo find out more about Platinum Face and Body Clinic’s services, reach Shelley and her experienced team by visiting the Non-Surgical, Medical Grade Aesthetic Treatments For The Face and Body | Platinum Face and Body Clinic website to book a consultation online or call +612 4200 9468.Syndicated by Baxton Media. IXUP introduces secure data analytics as on demand SaaS model 2019-03-06T23:37:07Z ixup-introduces-secure-data-analytics-as-on-demand-saas-model 7 March 2019: IXUP Limited (ASX: IXU) (“IXUP” or the “Company”), a technology company that secures data analytics, has announced a flexible on-demand software-as-a- service (SaaS) delivery option which will be available to clients in April. This additional deployment model will extend the Company’s market opportunity and enable it to capitalise off the growing use of SaaS technologies in the enterprise space. The SaaS deployment options will enable clients to purchase IXUP’s technology as a subscription-based license and access the secure and governed analytics platform through Microsoft Azure. It allows quick and easy access to IXUP’s secure data analytics technology, with minimal set-up costs, fast deployment and immediate access to analytics. The SaaS model will expedite time to value, save costs and encourage multi-party data analytics use by new clients who will benefit from a range of software bundles at different price points. The growing trend of organisations using cloud technology is driving new buying and consumption expectations, with client behaviour increasingly favouring subscription-based options. This is in line with a shift seen in the market toward a reduction of capital investment in traditional data analytical systems and services. IXUP CEO, Peter Leihn, said: “IXUP’s strategy is based on our core belief that combining one organisation’s insights with that of others delivers new value for customers. However, this can’t occur without the absolute confidence in the security and governance of the analytics and the use of that data. “Offering IXUP’s unique technology through the well proven SaaS model, represents an important progression in the realisation of our beliefs. We are making it quicker and easier for organisations to purchase and deploy IXUP’s platform where and when they want, while creating a platform for forward thinking organisations to partner with likeminded third parties for deeper and more valuable insight.” The Company’s SaaS model will provide a differentiated set of offerings to the market through the following solutions: IXUP Light TM: For new-to-IXUP customers looking to use our encryption technology to gain a capped number of insights per month through data partnerships; and IXUP Expert TM: For larger sophisticated data scientists and organisations that require multiple and repeated data collaboration enquiries per month. This is in addition to the Company’s current Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering renamed: IXUP EnableTM: Designed for IXUP’s Super Collaborators who wish to leverage the platform to conduct secure collaborations with their key clients, on their own Microsoft Azure infrastructure. The addition of the SaaS model to the Company’s sales offering will strengthen IXUP’s go- to-market and sales approach and will address new and expanded market opportunities. -ENDS- About IXUP IXUP Limited (pronounced ‘eyes up’) is a listed technology company (ASX: IXU) that secures data analytics and delivers insights within a governance framework.

Affectionately named 'the marriage saver' by Joe, the rest of Australia knows it as the Oztent RV Range. The Oztent Group remains an Australian owned and operated family business, providing Australian and international adventurers with a range of tents and outdoor furniture and accessories, designed to create an awesome camping experience. The Oztent Group opened operations in the USA in 2014. ABOUT THE ORIGINAL 30 SECOND TENT: Oztent is the original, patented 30-second tent. Its unique internal frame and hinge-mechanism eliminated the need (and time) required to thread poles to keep the tent up. Along with its innovative design, Oztent also features heavy-duty materials to withstand harsh Australian conditions.

With a few simple and practical methods, you can create spaces where positivity can flourish. Justine Wilson says, “At Vault Interiors we strongly believe that having a tidy, neat organised space can make you fall in love with your home again, and you should feel lighter mentally too. Shifting the energy of a space can totally transform your home and change your mindset at the same time. It can be life changing. “If you haven’t read Marie Kondo’s book or seen her Netflix show yet, now is the time to jump on the bandwagon. Not only are her methods easy to implement but they really do work and will change the way you look at tidying up, turning it from a chore into a way to inject new energy into your home,” adds Justine. Now that autumn is here, there’s no better time to organise your home! Justine’s top 5 organisational tips: Know your intentions. Know how you want to use the spaces in your home will ultimately help you decide what items are important. It will also make your home a positive place to live, and have positive energy for visitors. Decide which items “spark joy”. Marie’s methods are built on the philosophy that a home should be filled with only those items that make you happy – and I totally support this. Deciding what you love and can’t live without is the hardest part, but once you can do it, the rest is a breeze! It’s ok to keep things, so long as you love them. Store things correctly. With items such as clothing, store them in a way you can clearly see what you have maximises space and allows for easy access. When it comes to other miscellaneous items, sort into piles of keep and throw away. Sort your items by category, not location. This can make the process overwhelming, so focus on one category at a time. Use boxes and containers to store essential papers and books to make your space look neater and it will allow you to find things more quickly. Leave sentimental items until last. Items such as photographs and personal objects are often the hardest to let go, so sort through them last when you’ve had plenty of practice separating non-sentimental items. “Tidying up can not only help you reconnect with your space, but it can help you start to consider the way you accumulate belongings in the future,” adds Justine.

The CDR Bill 2019 is designed to create an extensive regulatory framework for the sharing of consumer data across industry sectors and was introduced into House of Representatives in February. It was immediately referred by the Senate to its Economics and Legislation Committee for inquiry and a report, due by 18 March 2019. Commenting on the proposed CDR Bill, AIIA CEO Ron Gauci said: “AIIA members support the establishment of a CDR regulatory framework that protects consumer data while fostering innovation in the telecommunications sector. However, AIIA members do not support the imposition of a CDR ‘template’ that is developed to suit the characteristics of the banking and energy sectors. Our members are clear of the need for a telecommunications specific template. “There is a real risk that inadequate stakeholder engagement and rushed implementation will result in an ambiguous and complex CDR regulatory framework. This could potentially create an unnecessary and onerous compliance burden for the different industry sectors and alienate consumers. “The CDR initiative is just one example of where Government legislation and regulatory frameworks struggle to keep pace with technology-led business change and innovation. Therefore, we urge the Government, consumers and the telecommunication industry to work together to co-design a clear and trusted CDR regulatory framework.” The AIIA recommends: The implementation of the CDR regulatory framework should include iterative review points. Data collected and lessons learnt from the review points should be incorporated into the regulatory frameworks for the energy and telecommunications sectors of the economy. These reviews should include consideration of technological advancements and the adequacy of existing regulatory frameworks that already apply to the telecommunication sector. AIIA has made two previous joint submissions to Government on the CDR regulatory framework in September and October 2018. The issues raised in these joint submissions by AIIA and Communications Alliance members remain current. The Bill is due to be debated in Parliament during its 2 April 2019 sitting days. The Bill, if successfully enacted, is due to come into effect from 1 July 2019. # # # About AIIA The Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) is Australia’s peak representative body and advocacy group for those in the digital ecosystem.
