Statistically, shark attacks will continue to increase as our population rises along with our increased passion for the ocean. As a result, our country will continue to be branded as the shark attack capital of the world. Now is the time to change this. Shark Shield proposes world first innovation to re-brand Australia as having the safest beaches in the world. Shark Shield CEO, Lindsay Lyon, addressed the Committee on Friday afternoon at the Senate Inquiry into Shark Mitigation and Deterrent Measures. Lyon questioned why Australian governments have not moved forward with Shark Shield to implement its new Ocean Guardian beach barrier solution, stating this is scientifically proven technology, it is not science fiction. Lyon said, “We are amazed given the lives lost and community economic damage from shark attacks as to why there has been no interest in commissioning a pilot or test site for Ocean Guardian. It is based on scientifically proven deterrent technology that has been on the market for twenty years. The electromagnetic transducer has also been used in the medial industry with clinical studies showing it is safe for humans and animals. “Shark Shield is building the new Ocean Guardian products for the luxury yacht and commercial markets. At this point in time we are not progressing with solutions for the beach barrier community protection, as there clearly appears to be no commercial interest in a solution to protect beaches and the environment. “Shark Shield has delivered a global habitat changing technology; this is a significant opportunity for Australia to lead the world in shark human management and ocean conservation. We would hope that both State and Federal Governments would be interested in implementing this solution yesterday.” (Please see press release attached for more information) For info, contact Rachel King @ 360 PR: rachel@360pr.com.au | 0423 833 814 | (02) 9571 4448 Treasury packs a punch for upcoming ‘Money Fight’ 2017-07-26T00:48:52Z treasury-packs-a-punch-for-upcoming-money-fight Hot on the heels of the Horn vs Pacquio boxing match, another knockout event touted as ‘The Money Fight’ is set to ignite the interest of boxing and sports enthusiasts alike.

With Sydney experiencing one of the driest winters on record, Cameron Nicholls - Principal and Founder of Nicholls & Co Estate Agents, suggests it may be those prepping for a spring sale. Cameron Nicholls says, “It’s no secret that many vendors have the mentality that it’s bad to sell in winter and they won’t get as much for their home as they would have if they’d waited for the magic of spring. So, we’re urging those who are thinking of selling to use the last weeks of winter to get their homes prepped for sale so they can hit the market from September 1.” Cameron’s top 5 areas to prep this winter include: The Garage – This area is typically the dumping ground. Now is the time to get it organised, clean and demonstrate the functionality it deserves. There is nothing worse than seeing cluttered space – no matter what room it’s in. The Garden – Trim back the trees and consult your local garden centre to determine which plants will flourish and add colour come September. The Façade – Does your door need painting? Or the entire house? Now is the time to invest in painting your façade. Many think the warmer weather is best, but this only makes the paint sweat while drying. The Windows – Simply cleaning your windows can add value to your property, it’s amazing the difference clear glass can give to your home. It also shows to potential buyers that the home has been well maintained. The Gutters – Clear up the autumn leaf drop from your gutters. This is not only for safety and to prevent blockages but also to improve the look of the roofing. 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 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 Australian beef producer, Jack's Creek win World's Best Fillet Steak Award at World Steak Challenge! 2017-07-05T01:41:20Z australian-beef-producer-jack-s-creek-win-world-s-best-fillet-steak-award-at-world-steak-challenge Jack’s Creek win World’s Best Fillet Steak Award at World Steak Challenge 2017! Family-run Australian beef producer, Jack’s Creek has won the World's Best Fillet Steak producer accolade at the World Steak Challenge in London last night; the third time in a row that the producer has been the recipient of a top award at the competition. The competition was bigger and tougher than ever with 17 countries and over 100 entries from the world’s top beef producers. The Jack's Creek winning steak came from a Wagyu F2+ 450-day grain fed Fillet. Jack’s Creek also won a Gold medal for its Wagyu F2+ 450-day grain fed Striploin and a Silver Medal for its Wagyu F2+ 450-day grain fed Rib Eye. Patrick Warmoll, managing director of Jack's Creek commented, “I am delighted with the outcome this year. We spent a considerable amount of time selecting our entries alongside our German distributor, Albers Food, who this year came to our farm in Tamworth, Australia to assist in the selection process for our Wagyu entries. With added categories, their input was very valuable!” “A third consecutive set of Gold and Silver medals, as well as the World’s Best Fillet Steak award confirms that we are producing a consistent, high quality product and I am very proud of the business we have created. As I always say, this is as much a win for Australia as it is for us.” Chair of judges Marco Peerdeman said, “We focused on how the steaks taste, taking into account their tenderness. Those that got it right jumped out at you. The steaks were definitely high this year! It’s interesting for us with the different categories as different cuts have different qualities so we had to take that into account.” Rod Addy, editor of GlobalMeatNews, said: “The sheer range and quality of entries this year is a testament to the hard work put in by producers across the globe. This year’s Challenge has attracted a record number of entries, reflecting the pride producers take in their products and the eagerness to win an accolade, which will propel their business and their brand.” Jack’s Creek’s award-winning beef can be found in many of Australia’s top restaurants including, ARIA, BLACK Bar & Grill, Catalina, LuMi Bar and Dining and many more. ARIA restaurant Head Chef Ben Turner commented that, “Jack’s Creek beef is always a consistent and tasty product” and BLACK Bar & Grill Executive Chef, Dany Karam said, “When I heard the prized sirloin from Jack’s Creek was named the World’s Best Steak, I knew I had to have it. We smoke it over our signature cherry wood ash before cooking it on the iron bark grill and serving it medium to bring out the tender flavour and succulent texture. Our customers absolutely love it.” www.jackscreek.com.au For more information on Jack’s Creek, interviews with Patrick Warmoll and images, please contact Annabel Carroll at Polkadot PR 02 9281 4190 / annabel@polkadotpr.com.au About Jack’s Creek Jack’s Creek is still regarded as a relative newcomer in the world of specialist beef after launching in 2000.

The aim of the survey is to build upon the 2016 iteration of the same study, of which 6,500 craft beer drinkers took part, helping businesses throughout the craft beer industry; including breweries, bars and beer festivals. Richard Kelsey, Director of Beer Cartel said that while the study will seek to measure changes in craft beer habits over the past year it will also provide a gauge of consumer sentiment towards craft beer ownership and the issue of independence which has been highly topical of late. “There has been significant coverage in the media of late about the role big breweries are playing in craft beer, with a number of buy-outs in Australia and overseas. Plus on top of this the Craft Beer Industry Association (CBIA) recently changed its constitution, voting to remove large brewers from its membership and changing its name to the Independent Brewers Association. We’re taking an open view going in and will let beer drinkers decide on their opinion towards this. Is it a good thing, or a bad thing? We’ll soon know either way,’” said Mr Kelsey. The results of the research will be made public to support and help grow the industry. In addition, Beer Cartel will also offer businesses the opportunity to better understand their own customer base, helping to deliver on the wants and needs of their customers. For craft beer drinkers the survey will take just 5 minute to complete. And, as an incentive to encourage people to take the survey a prize of $500 to spend on craft beer is being offered up for grabs.
