  • Board Certifications
    The doctor must be a certified board passer. Other certifications the doctor presents will also be assessed for authenticity by contacting the specific board or organisations that gave them.

How Furniture Picking Turns Into a Parenting Approach in Australia

Why it’s good to pick our own

Australian themed furniture is unarguably of international calibre. We’re talking about the variety of equipment we put in our homes, the stuff we grew with. Imagine the children’s tables and high chair sets you and your siblings had when you were young. It’s highly unlikely that you’ll remember, but you had the softest cot mattress in the entire town as a tot. You had neat stuff and cool kids’ furniture, and now it’s your turn to buy that cloud-like kids furniture baby cotbaby cot for your own little bundle of joy.

It’s true that there are different avenues to work with. There are also tons of things to do to obtain what we need and want, but the single best thing about buying local is accessibility. There’s nothing better than going shopping and personally picking what you want in your child’s bedroom and playroom.

Hands-on and thorough

You’ve probably been through hundreds of pictures, and have read different reviews and recommendations. But it really all boils down to making that important decision of picking the best for your baby. To know what’s best, you have to identify what’s good, which things are better and what the best option is. That’s where it sometimes gets complicated. Things get badly mixed up.

It’s right to educate yourself before you arrive at making conclusions, but be careful not to confuse yourself in the process. If you’re a first time parent then you most likely have a lot of fears. You’re scared that your preference may not be what’s best suited for your toddler, but really, only you can decide that. The stuff you read on the internet and from parenting books are merely guides. They’ll teach you a thing or two but firsthand experience is still the best teacher.

Looking forward

Parenthood is a wonderful gift. You often see yourself watching your child sleep on that new baby cot you recently bought for her. It’s amazing how a small gesture like this can bring so much peace and tranquility to you even though you’ve been stressed the whole day. While looking at your baby, you’ll realize that eventually, sooner or later, she’ll grow up. She’ll need a bigger cot mattress and other cool kids’ furniture. You’ll find yourself playing with your little doll pretending to be at a coffee shop, with you sitting on the floor while she’s preparing drinks on her children’s table and chair set.

You want their childhood to be the best childhood they’ll have since they will only experience it once. Realizing the importance of this is vital in shaping your child’s retention and progression. Generally speaking, kids who enjoyed their childhood tend to grow up to be good adult individuals.

It’s okay to spoil a child, just don’t spoil him rotten. Buy him all the toys he can play with and let him act his age. Eventually when he grows older, he may have better preferences in choosing which furniture he wants in his little kingdom.

The Best Books for Your Business

Do I need to read?

Running a business can be a tricky thing. It’s a continuous process, and really, there’s no single ample solution to every problem that may arise. We’ve seen dozens and dozens of books being sold in bookstores and online, promising that they will solve problems about business planning or the succession planning process in case you finally want to enjoy your retirement.But the million dollar question is, do they really deliver?

No matter what business you have, various experts offer to give answers to all your questions. Because there are countless varieties to choose from, and since we do not want to waste precious time and money on something that doesn’t help, we’ll try to be as stringent as possible. We’d rather choose from what really are the best business books.

Golf Club Furniture: Stubborn Fustiness Prevails

Recently, I had a beer at my local golf club with a golfing enthusiast buddy of mine who is in event management and she made the rather terse comment that her company would never think of hosting an event in a golf club. The furniture’s too drab, too old school, it would be embarrassing for hosts and attendees, she said. Yes, it is a sad truth that many golf clubs have a nineteenth hole that has not been renovated since Arnold Palmer was the ‘king’. Golfers, in the past, have been dour traditionalists who have scorned fashions and trends as mere, flibbity gibbit.

The tired old tables covered in table clothes, not seen since the Crimean War, and the chairs sunk in depression by structural decay and endemic neglect. Even the barman or barmaid, has not sparkled since the spring of the Menzies’ years. Golf club furniture: stubborn fustiness prevails and new ideas are thin on the ground. General Managers of golf clubs are slowly coming around to change, because the economic climate is forcing it upon them. Clubs are going broke from declining memberships and poorly patronised facilities. Today’s golfer does not have the time to sit around and listen to the tales of the ‘oldest member’; as constructive as they may be. Modern men and women are time poor, we are told frequently. It is in and out for a quick eighteen holes around the golf course, and maybe a lemon squash at the finish.

What if the clubs had habitable furniture; something that might inspire a prolonged stay? A chair which was kind on the eye and even friendlier to a tired bottom, might make the world of difference. GMs would be well advised to spend some time at furniture stores road testing tables and chairs. Golf needs to be dragged kicking and screaming into the twenty first century; or it will soon be as popular as speaking Latin and considered as credible as the study of astrology.

Golf clubs can retain some old world décor, of course, but it needs to be top drawer examples of the craft. Retro styles are available and a properly themed interior design could create a unique ambience for visitors and members. Club houses could feature beautifully turned wooden chairs and tables, polished or raw, with leather seats and parquet floors. Combining this with state of the art, but discreetly placed, extra wide LED screens to keep twenty first century functionality on tap for events and the member’s competition scores.

 

Post-Writers-Convention Blues: How to Stay Connected

Writer’s conventions are, let’s face it, a bit of a party; and the lonely craft of writing can make some writers crave that social atmosphere. What does the writer do post-party to stay connected, after a serious dose of socialising with his fans and fellow writers? For some it is a case of going cold turkey and returning to the solo status of scribe with keyboard, screen and not much else. For others it may be Facebook, Twitter or one of the other social media channels, where the intimacy is questionable but there is some sort of connection.

Post-writers-convention blues: how to stay connected. Writing science fiction can lead one to explore other technological options for networking. Perhaps, something inspired by the futuristic imaginings of characters who live in the twenty fourth century or beyond. What will innovation have created by then? Will it be nodes planted directly in the brain and special channels of communication predicated on passwords shared by telepathic thought? The wonderful worlds of William Gibson and their chilling melding of human and computer, come to mind. Digital chips now impregnated with souls and cyberspace awash with metaphysical characteristics.

Post-writers-convention blues: how to stay connected. Returning in time to our own twenty first century, writers who wish to share points from the convention can do so with Microsoft’s technology designed for just that purpose. Connecting to a network of specialist users; free from the distractions inherent within platforms like Facebook. Security and peace of mind are paramount for writers when sharing; no chance for trolls to unleash their bile on revolutionary ideas. Social media usage by writers, of all descriptions, is best managed by neutral professionals. They can maximise the opportunities presented by social media exposure and minimise the risks at the same time. Avoid the slanging matches on Twitter, as much as you may miss the social interaction; you will only end up in Coventry.

Science fiction and fantasy writing is a medium for the presentation of bright and bold ideas. Hidden within narratives your characters can put forth the kinds of things you would like to see happening in the world. New ways of bringing up babies and children; freed from the social conventions of tradition. Or, novel approaches to feeding the world; unhampered by cultural conditioning and taboos. There are so many things to be imagined differently and this is at the heart of all good science fiction and fantasy writing. Perhaps, we could eat our dear departed relatives, instead of wasting their nutritional potential in the ground or in the flames; a way of honouring them at a farewell dinner. There is always something to think about when reading and writing science fiction.

Greatest Horse Novels Ever

Black Beauty was a classic, War Horse had something to say about man’s inhumanity in the face of a noble beast, and The Horse Whisperer involved the healing power of animals. The great majority of novels about horses are written for young girls; there seems to be a strong cultural bond between girls and Equus. Perhaps, learning to ride on the beast’s back and to control that force of nature prepares girls to become women. The greatest horse novels ever are mostly removed from the science fiction genre, but they are, often, an integral part of fantasy novels.

Dashing knights and warriors, invariably, are mounted on horses, who are their companions in adventure. Whether male or female, these protagonists are stirring characters who drive the plot along, as they do battle with the forces of evil and villainy. Horses stand for honesty, their erect carriage and graceful lines suggest that they are entities that one can trust. To ride upon the back of such noble animals is a privilege; earned only by the elite. The aristocracy are trained to ride, and trained to fight with sword and spear; born to rule astride their equine friend.

But it’s more than just the horses, magnificent as they are – these novels are a celebration of country living, of communion with nature. There are novels about horse racing, like Secretariat Reborn, and these usually involve redemption and overcoming obstacles to win out over all. Country racing is often at the heart of these trials by horse and rider to find salvation in the winner’s circle once more. Broken horses, broken jockeys, broken owners and broken trainers can all be players in the narrative of redemption. There is nothing, quite like, watching a thoroughbred in full stride; galloping in competition with others of his, or her, kind. Who can forget the novels of Dick Francis.

The greatest horse novels ever are thick on the ground, because the horse is a fellow companion on humankind’s evolutionary journey through time. The horse has borne us through troubled situations, at war, in competition and to help us reach our destination; we write about horses as icons from our rich past. We included horses in our stories, perhaps, as payment for their loyal duty toward us in times gone by. In fantasy novels set in yesteryears, somewhere in some other galaxy, the horse retains its high value. It is a companion worthy of our best intentions and most strenuous adventures.

Poverty as Literary Inspiration: The No Credit Check Myth

Great artists, in both literature and the visual arts, have famously struggled with poverty when producing their masterpieces or bodies of work. In the science fiction genre some great exponents of it have, also, subsisted on tobacco and coffee; especially in their formative years. Is poverty a literary inspiration or is it simply the fact that writing as a profession pays poorly in the majority of instances? Science fiction and fantasy novels are loved by millions worldwide, but reaching that audience through the established platforms can be economically exhausting.

Poverty as literary inspiration: the no credit check myth is alive and well, even in the age of electronic books. Despite the fact that online publishers are unburdened by the costs of paper and ink, and that writers can self-publish on Amazon, writing remains a profitable pathway for the few rather than the many. Science fiction writers toil in basements and at their desks, often after work, to tell the stories they hope will propel them into cultural and literary acclaim. Few SF writers are ever acclaimed as literary giants, because the genre is still considered to be too low brow.

Science fiction stirs its audience with tremendous ideas, more than with form and structure. Writers like JG Ballard, Brian Aldiss and Robert A Heinlein, who were challenged early in their careers financially, stretched the envelope of human conception in their many and varied works. I am sure that each of the writers was forced to seek out no credit check loans at certain times. Writers are famous for their shameless behaviour when it comes to money. Debt management is an issue for most writers, as they make their way in the world; especially when their newness goes unappreciated.

Most writers say that having the determination to finish a book is the most important quality a writer must possess. There are more unfinished novels in the bottom drawers of aspiring writers, than completed ones on the shelves of book stores. Whether poverty is truly an inspiration for great art, is sorely debatable, but to get the job done and to possibly get paid for it is a spur that ‘want’ can furnish. Science fiction and fantasy, often, removes its readers from the hum drum of daily living, perhaps it also allows its hungry writers to persevere with their craft. A noisy unfulfilled belly may be ignored by lofty thoughts written down amid a cornucopia of brilliant ideas. Getting to the place in the story where you can write ‘the end’ is the writer’s first accomplishment. What comes next is, like the future, unknown, but, often richly imagined.
