The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-01-16T08:43:49Z Australian Country Party Announces its National Expansion as the First, Truly Democratic, Grass Roots Political Party in Australia 2019-01-16T08:43:49Z australian-country-party-announces-its-national-expansion-as-the-first-truly-democratic-grass-roots-political-party-in-australia MEDIA RELEASE 15 January 2019 Australian Country Party Announces its National Expansion as the First, Truly Democratic, Grass Roots Political Party in Australia New Federal Chairman of the Australian Country Party, Glenn O’Rourke, today announced the official commencement of the National Expansion of the Australian Country Party.   “The Australian Country Party is a grass roots up party that listens to people and allows members and supporters direct input into the election of candidates and leadership and will represent all Australian’s equally and fairly.” Glenn said.   The Party is neither left nor right, nor do we segregate Australians into different groups, we all have equal value and we all have valuable voices. Our candidates and MP’s will be focused on engaging with, listening to and representing their individual electorates and contribute to broad policies, through local consultation, that firstly relate to their electorates and then the greater region, State or Territory and Country.   Our candidates and MP’s will operate together as a cohesive collective in their electorates or councils like people have come to expect independents to.   Glenn went on to outline, “We are committed to providing a structure, economies of scale and the benefits of a registered party, along the lines of an alliance of Independent candidates and MP’s. Our catch phrase and philosophy will be ‘People before Party, Policies before Politics’.”   Other Major Political Parties No Longer Represent the People    “The factional and power base control of the current major and most minor parties in Australia and the recent need for minor party leaders to place their names or images on their parties, has only entrenched a career politician environment, party first and electoral cycle approach to the political system in Australia.   This long-term situation has created a severe disconnect of Australia’s voters and has seen a significant disengagement from politics in the country and a belief that people have no vehicle to discuss, nor impact the effect of legislation on their world. People feel that there is nothing they can do to change things, to make Australia the lucky country it once was again.” Glenn Said.   Glenn Stated “People are sick of the opposition of policies, just because the other political party came up with them. Policies that support international interests before Australia’s and Australian People’s interests are also unacceptable. People want a political party to hear their cries and propose and amend legislation in the interests of Australia and its people first.”   Australian Country Party to Break the Back of the Flawed Two-Party System and Provide A True Third Party Alternative for Australia   The Australian Country Party stands with Australians giving a new, broadly inclusive option to vote for. A grass roots founded and solid alternative party to the Major Parties and the plethora of single interest or ego driven minor parties.    Australian Country Party will be registering in every State and Territory and working towards achieving a national membership of at least 100,000 members in the next few years.   In contrast to most other political parties, Australian Country Party members and the broader community will play an active role in broad policy development, party direction, candidate endorsement and political leadership selection. Additionally, Australian people will also be involved in candidate preselection, through USA style primaries in their local electorates.   Sitting MP’s Will Join the Australian Country Party    “As the expansion momentum of the Australian Country Party picks up, we expect a growing number of sitting MP’s, Federal, State and Local to join the Party, as they have realised that they are not able to represent their electorates as they planned to do when they entered politics. The needs of their electorate are silenced and they have to toe party lines or lose preselection, even if it goes against their own and their electorates needs and wants.” Glenn explained and then went on to say.   “Additionally, the Independents sitting in Parliaments and local councils around the country, will realise they do not have to reinvent themselves within their community as a candidate but gain all the added advantages of a national political party that supports and encourages them to represent their electorate’s people first, without a party dictated voting direction.”   Call for Quality Candidates of Australia to Nominate for Australian Country Party    Quality Candidates are now being sought Australia-wide as candidates for Federal, State and Territory and Local Councils, that are committed to the need to build the support of their electorate. Candidates that understand that it is a passionate long-term commitment, to listen to and represent their people.   You can nominate online at www.australiancountryparty.org.au/join   Support our National Expansion:   ·         Nominate for Local Council, State and Territory and Federal Electorates NOW. ·         Sign up for our newsletter now, to be kept up to date on developments. ·         Consider joining the Party to play a part in this exciting adventure for the future of Australia.

Artificial Intelligence: Are we destined for a dystopian future where one company reigns supreme power? 2019-01-14T02:38:28Z artificial-intelligence-are-we-destined-for-a-dystopian-future-where-one-company-reigns-supreme-power-1 Imagine a world where a single corporation reigns supreme power over all. Like an umbilical cord to an unborn child, this company provides the precious and necessary resources to any that wish to thrive. It collects billions of terabytes of data with its millions of CPUs, every minute, constantly churning and processing at speeds that are unfathomable to many. Growing ‘smarter’ every day it has the ability to connect billions of products and services to billions of people, in nanoseconds. Those that feed the connection with valuable raw data are rewarded accordingly and life gets better for those people. If, however one was to break the rules and be restricted from the connection, their organisation will most certainly fail and die due to lack of insight and inability to compete with those who remain connected. The rules are made, of course, by the corporation and the corporation decides whether you are or are not worthy of its precious connection. Sounds like a science fiction movie, but it could be the reality of at least one of our dystopian futures. A single organisation who provides connectivity to a private neural network. This network comprises of the billions of terabytes of data, but more importantly, it is all meaningfully interpreted and organised to deliver the most precise and efficient value anyone has ever experienced. Can one company rule the roost? There are some people that say, one company simply can not win the AI race, that it is a collective resource and that neural networks are distributed and owned by many. To some degree, I agree with that sentiment, however, I also believe that the true power and growth of AI lies in its ability to interpret and implement in the most efficient ways possible. Bob Picciano, Senior Vice President, Information and Analytics at IBM, identified big data as the new natural resource. Therefore if we say that big data is the worlds largest natural resource, then the algorithms that power AI are the machinery fuelled by the resource. My view is that the core of the AI revolution is going to be somewhat a reverse of what we saw in the industrial revolution. During the industrial revolution, the unequal power went to those who could produce and distribute the recourses, think of oil companies, mining companies, etc. These were a few very large and powerful companies in large markets (oligopoly’s and monopolies). The manufacturers consumed the resources to create value-added output, such as steel, cars, products, etc. Although there were a few large powerful companies that produced, the majority of the production companies were small and medium-sized firms that had lots of competition. AI: just like the industrial revolution, just in reverse! With AI, this will be reversed, the ‘natural’ resource (big data) will be provided by many smaller contributors who will collect data in many different, innovative ways and the value-add will be how that data is translated and converted to value (AI Algorithm and hardware). The reason I believe this will be the case is due to one thing, efficiency. The ability of one central and private network to crunch data, interoperate it and deliver will be much higher than any smaller operator and therefore the smaller operator will (out of logic) enlist the services of the larger organisation. If Ai was like an oil refinery, imagine if you took every stage of the refinery process and placed it among different companies with different rules and regulations. It would be foolish to assume that you could manufacture finished fuel in any efficient manner. Conclusion The fundamentals that fuelled the rise of the ‘corporation’ will also fuel the rise of AI. At the epicentre will be the king of efficiency, a leader that can process and deliver the raw and semi-processed data into a more coveted valuable output, such as increased sales, the latest vehicle design or even city planning and design. All this will be driven ultimately by cost reduction and speed to market. FutureNation.co Crown Equity Holdings Inc.

THE 4TH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION - POWERED BY MILLENNIALS 2019-01-09T07:25:30Z the-4th-industrial-revolution-powered-by-millennials SYDNEY. 9 January 2019 The 4th Industrial Revolution will be shaped by the rise of the Asian Century. According to Futurologist Rocky Scopelliti who has released a new book Youthquake 4.0 - A Whole Generation and The New Industrial Revolution. The World Economic Forum predicts it will disrupt almost every country and industry and “Asia has become its epicentre” said Scopelliti. “Asia became the ‘factory’ for the 3rd Industrial Revolution, adapting to shifting global economic and technological developments and continually recreating comparative advantage. Asia is on the cusp of eclipsing the US for the world’s biggest venture capital market attracting a total funding of US$70.8 billion in 2017 to America’s US$71.9 billion and Europe US$17.6B[1] and is set to leapfrog the US into the 4th Industrial Revolution” said Scopelliti. Investments in emerging technology breakthroughs in the areas of artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet-of-Things, autonomous vehicles, 3D printing, biotechnology, nanotechnology, materials science, energy, blockchain and quantum computing are laying the foundations of the Asian century.  Published globally by Marshall Cavendish, the world-first book deconstructs contemporary global issues, super-charged by the impact of Millennials and their influence on the 4th Industrial Revolution. Scopelliti explains that in this age of accelerated change, the 21st century will be shaped by Millennials who have become the largest demographic group on the planet - 58 per cent to which are located in Asia Pacific. Their influence as consumers, employees and investors will only increase from this point on.  “The share of Millennial-controlled global wealth in Asia Pacific has reached 45 per cent, exceeding the America’s by 22 per cent and Europe, Middle East, Africa by 14 per cent. By 2020, this will double to US$35.3 trillion[2]. To put this into perspective, at that same time, US GDP is projected to be only US$22 trillion and Eurozone US$13 trillion. Chinese Millennials are the first in Asia to become the most valuable demographic group, and a US$9 trillion economic force to be reckoned with” said Scopelliti. As a world-renowned futurologist, more than 150 boards and leadership teams – including Fortune 100 companies – seek Scopelliti’s strategic advice annually.

Large area spaces on high-rise buildings present the opportunity for greening more surface area in total in the one job. Over the past two years the team has seen a dramatic increase in demand for greening the exteriors of high-rise buildings, with a number of large projects lined up for 2019 already. Mark Paul says, “We have been working tirelessly on creating new forms of eco-friendly greenwalls for all types of spaces, including new designs for high-rise buildings. Not only do greenwalls look fantastic on the exteriors of the buildings, but they truly transform the aesthetics and atmosphere of the street, and surrounding areas, not to mention the health benefits. “With the current boom in high-rise buildings around the country, we are excited to be working on some large projects and greening tall, large and prominent spaces with the use of larger ecological systems.” adds Mark. Mark Paul created what is believed to be the very first greenwall in Australia over 30 years ago. Today, green design is an influential part of the public domain and design interest, so naturally if there are more high-rise building developments, other trends often follow suit. Mark’s top 3 tips for green façades on high-rise buildings: Trailing or cascading plants with high biodiversity are best for high-rise buildings in order to create habitats for many native species. Plant examples include: Ficus, Metrosideros, Brachychiton Our greenwall & green roof systems are morphing into more passive gravity fed systems that offer opportunities for black water and grey water remediation with back ups of solar pumping of utilities. The more surface area to green on high-rise buildings, the better, and the more supportive the greenwall will be for the larger ecological systems. In this kind of environment many species are known to reside including over 23 species of birds, geckos, skinks and frogs amongst others.These larger scale applications can provide not just energy efficiency and amenity, but cooling and shading and expand biodiversity and eventually create flora and fauna corridors/ecosystems as part of the built environment. About the Greenwall Company: The Greenwall Company is the premier producer of modular and custom designed greenwalls in Australia. An unequalled product, Greenwall can be used like cladding to produce instant ‘greenspace’ both inside and out. The system developed by Mark Paul at The Greenwall Company over approximately 30 years, presents an innovative system based on inorganic media and adjustable substrate depth that retains moisture and simulates conditions resembling natural soil. In addition, by using plants adapted to impoverished environments and seasonal drought, The Greenwall Company achieves water efficient planting that is resilient to inevitable short-term human and mechanical failures. www.greenwall.com.au dermaviduals hosts Skin Fitness Event for Silver Ferns Netball Team 2018-12-21T00:50:37Z dermaviduals-hosts-skin-fitness-event-for-silver-ferns-netball-team Known for their bespoke skincare and makeup ranges, dermaviduals is pleased to share their latest involvement with New Zealand’s national netball team, the Silver Ferns.

But while being a host can make you some quick cash, short-term rental services such as Airbnb might not be worth all the hype – at least not for the property owner. Now, don’t get me wrong, renting out your property is not a bad idea. In fact, property rental is a smart way to get ahead, but perhaps consider the benefits of long-term rental and how by enlisting the help of a real estate agency or an experienced property manager, you could save yourself time and avoid the hassle of dealing directly with renters. Here are some reasons why you should consider long-term rental: Know the people staying in your home. While you may not know them personally, chances are property agents will find tenants with a good rental reputation, so you know your property will be looked after. It’s their job to find tenants for you, so you don’t have to worry about doing the work. Consistent rental income. Most leases are on average 12 months, so you can rest easy knowing you have steady rental income for that period, which provides both security and stability. On the contrary, short-term rentals don’t always guarantee occupancy which, depending on your situation, could put a strain on your financials. Peace of mind. Having an agent manage your property ensures it will be looked after and if any issues were to arise, you wouldn’t be left having to deal with them alone. Consider them a mediator between you and the tenants. Expertise. While it may seem obvious, property agents are skilled and experienced in property management. This means they can offer you advice when needed and can guide you in making the right decisions based on your circumstances and situation. Minimise legal risks. Airbnb might be against the bylaws of your building. Therefore, it could present the property owner with legal implications. Reduce dollars spent on repairs. Short-term rental could cause more wear and tear on items in the property, potentially resulting in more regular maintenance, and possibly costing more in the long run. No insurance worries. Many insurers regard short-stay holiday rentals as commercial use of the property. This means owners may not be protected by home and content insurance if something were to happen. Ultimately, this could potentially leave the homeowner financially vulnerable to financial loss.

Mark Foy's 2019 Property Predictions 2018-12-19T03:31:55Z mark-foys-2019-property-predictions 2019 Predictions For The Surry Hills Property Market Media Release - December 2018 The last few years have been a challenging time for those wishing to dive into the property market, but with the median house prices in Sydney down 8.1%* since its peak in 2017, experts predict that house prices will continue to fall opening up new opportunities for those who have previously missed out. The Surry Hills market continues to remain relatively steady**, but Mark Foy, Principal at Belle Property Surry Hills, predicts the median house price will continue to fall, but there is light. Mark says, “There’s exciting times ahead for those wishing to buy as they’ll be able to take advantage of the drop in the market – especially for first home buyers. But be warned, it won’t last forever. The first half of 2019 is your best bet for buying, before the federal election.” While it’s said the median house price will continue falling, experts state it could be difficult to determine just how much until after the federal election, which could see changes to negative gearing and capital gains. Mark Foy’s predications for the property market in 2019: First home buyers who have been monitoring the market will immerge to take advantage of the better buying opportunities that will be on offer in 2019. Buyers who have the borrowing capacity to trade up to a higher price bracket will be rewarded by the value the higher end of the market now offers. Investors will seek to purchase prior to the federal election in the likely case that labour is elected and negative gearing is grandfathered. Prices will dip an additional 10% in the next 12 months due to negative sentiment however the fundaments of a strong healthy Surry Hills property market still remain strong. Short-term rental accommodation will continue to be a popular avenue for investors and rents will stabilise. *Corelogic.com.au ** Propertyvalue.com.au belleproperty.com/surryhills For further information or to speak with Mark Foy, please contact: Rachel King @ 360 PR: 02 9571 4448 or rachel@360pr.com.au
