New Jersey to consider bikini waxing ban

Friday, March 20, 2009 

New Jersey is considering a state-wide ban on Brazilian waxes, the removal of hair from the bikini area.

Although genital waxing has never really been allowed in the state, the New Jersey Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling plans to propose a ban with more specific legal wording, in response to two women who reported being injured during a wax. The board will consider the proposal at their next meeting on April 14.

If the measure passes, New Jersey may become the only US state to ban the practice outright.

Although millions of Americans engage in bikini waxes, which generally cost between $50 and $60 per session, the practice comes with risks. Skin care experts say the hot wax can irritate delicate skin in the bikini area, and result in infections, ingrown hairs and rashes.

Waxing on the face, neck, abdomen, legs and arms would continue to be permitted in the state under the proposed ban. Although New Jersey statutes have always banned bikini waxing, the laws were unclear and seldom enforced.

As a result, many salons from around the state have offered bikini waxing for years. Many salon owners spoke out against the proposed ban, which they said would severely damage their business.

“I really don’t know if the state can stop it at this point,” said Valentia Chistova, owner of the Monmouth County salon Brazil. “I know a lot of women who are really hooked.”

Moving Your Outdoors To Your Indoors.

Moving Your Outdoors to Your Indoors.

by

Louise Scoggins

With the idea of more ‘outdoor living’ coming into vogue, many of us are planning to change our interiors so that they can include the outside more easily. Often fads in home design are ignored by many because they are just that: fads. However, the outdoor living idea is being adopted by the majority, perhaps because it is something many of us were already doing.

Now that we can actually buy the furnishings, appliances and fitments to make it an easy realistic choice – it is being chosen by many of us!

One of the first things that is needed for outdoor living is easy access to the outdoors. French windows flung open onto a large outdoor living area or deck area is much more desirable than walking out the kitchen door and making your way around to the patio.

Therefore, if you do not have French windows or a sliding screen door, this would be your first consideration. It is usually not too difficult to make an existing window into full length doors. You will need to consult a contractor to determine whether you need a reinforced steel joist (RSJ) to be built into the wall above your soon-to-be-removed window; this will support the gap that will be left by your new doors.

There also other options just coming onto the market and that is the option of ‘exterior folding doors’. Many new companies offer these doors which literally fold onto each other and bring the outdoors into your home. Using this system, your window space could be four doors wide instead of two doors wide.

YouTube Preview Image

There are several companies showing photo examples on the Internet, including companies in B.C., Canada and California, U.S.A. Typing in the words ‘exterior folding doors’ on the Internet will show you some choices.

If your home is not big enough for this style of door, a happy compromise is the french door arrangement; they open outwards and give a more spacious feel than the sliding door, which only offers fresh air access through one door.

Once you have decided on how to access the deck or patio area where you will be doing your outdoor living, you will need to think about flooring. If you have a ceramic tile floor which can extend out into the patio area, it will add even further to your feeling of having a room extension. This means that you will have to use exterior quality flooring inside, which is more expensive, but may be worth the look.

Clever DIY folk may be able to reproduce an outdoor wooden finish to match indoor wooden flooring. However, due to the nature of the elements, it will need to be finished every year and with a top quality sealer.

Another way to be able to enjoy the outdoors more often is to consider ways to be able to be outdoors without having to rely on the weather. For instance – ever planned a barbecue and woken on the appointed day to rain and clouds?

There are options to enable the outdoors to be enjoyed in less than perfect weather; some people use a sun room addition. This could block light that would otherwise come into your home, so may not be everyone’s choice.

A good alternative is to install an awning, such as the type that we are familiar with on the side of campers, trailers etc. They just pull out from the wall of the house when you need them (and will be grateful for them!) and will not interfere with your natural daylight at other times when they are rolled back into their case.

Deck awnings can also save you money in energy bills from running your air conditioner; they be rolled down if you find that your home warms up too much in the summer and they will deflect the sun’s rays. A retractable awning does not require any adjustments to your roof .

Whilst awnings would seem to be an expensive luxury, you can buy a manually operated retractable awning for as little as $400.00 (seven foot wide and nine foot depth from the wall by Sunsetter) and this may be a comparable price; you can find out by typing in ‘retractable awnings’ on the Internet.

Once you have the window access, flooring and shade in place, you can start the fun part – shopping for your accessories!

Dungog, Australia residents celebrate continued protection of local forest

Thursday, September 5, 2013 

Local residents of Dungog, a small country town in New South Wales (NSW), Australia, held a celebratory nature walk on Sunday after they received assurance that their local forest was deemed worthy of “enduring protection.” Previously, a proposal before the NSW government to log over one million hectares of protected national park forests had caused alarm among nature conservationists.

To celebrate the continued protection of national parks in NSW, a free guided walk was held on Sunday in the Black Bulga Range Conservation Area. This family-friendly nature ramble meandered along the mountain’s ridge, with locals enjoying the forest, sharing a cup of billy tea and knowledge about the local forest’s ecology and history. The physical presence of the locals in the forest demonstrated their continued use of this area and the importance of national parks for the community.

Since early 2012, the possibility of logging for commercial timber in NSW national parks had been emerging. A state government inquiry on the management of public land in NSW received submissions and evidence from both the Australian and NSW Forest Products Associations (FPA). The FPA’s recommendation to “tenure swap” between national parks and state forests in order to sustain the timber industry were included in the final governmental report.

The process began in April 2012 when the NSW Legislative Council —the upper house of the parliament of NSW— established an inquiry into the management of public land in New South Wales, conducted by the General Purpose Standing Committee No. 5. According to a media release from the Legislative Council at the time, the primary purpose of the inquiry was to “scrutinise the management of the State’s public land and review the process and impact of converting Crown Land, State Forests or agricultural land into National Park estate.”

By August that year, the committee had received a recommendation from Mr. Grant Johnson of the Australian Forests Products Association for the “re-introduction of harvesting activities in forest areas previously set aside for conservation.” The following month, Mr. Johnson and Mr Russell Alan Ainley, Executive Director, NSW Forest Products Association, were invited before the committee. At this hearing, the chair, Mr. R. L. Brown, member for the Shooters and Fishers Party, asked Mr. Ainley for “a calculation of the area currently in [national parks] reserve that would need to be returned [to state forest] to be available for timber extraction”. In response, Mr. Ainley suggested “a little more than one million hectares.”

On May 15, the NSW Legislative Council published a Final Report on the management of public land in New South Wales. Among its key recommendations was that “the NSW Government immediately identify appropriate reserved areas for release to meet the levels of wood supply needed to sustain the timber industry, and that the NSW Government take priority action to release these areas, if necessary by a ‘tenure swap’ between national park estate and State forests. In particular, urgent action is required for the timber industry in the Pilliga region.”

A “tenure swap” would reserve areas of NSW state forest where logging is now allowed, in exchange for opening areas of national parks for logging.

Environment groups such as The Nature Conservation Council of NSW and The Wilderness Society announced that these government documents signaled an immediate threat of logging in national parks in NSW. This information raised concerns of other community and activist groups because logging is not conducted in national parks in Australia. According to the NSW Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water, a national park is an area designated to “protect Australia’s plants, animals, ecosystems, unique geology and Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal cultural connections to the land.”

The Black Bulga State Conservation Area was one of many parks listed by the environment group Save Your National Parks as potentially vulnerable for “tenure swap”. This forest covers 1554 hectares and connects Dungog Shire to the World Heritage listed Barrington Tops National Park, part of a green corridor from the ocean to the mountains.

Residents living near the forest were concerned by the proposal for logging in their area. A local information day held in June, at the Settlers Arms, Dungog, motivated local action. As a consequence of the event, over forty hand-written letters were posted to the Premier and local MPs. In a recent reply from the NSW government, the Minister for the Environment, Robyn Parker, stated: “The Government does not support commercial logging in national parks and reserves, including Black Bulga State Conservation Area, and has no plans to allow it. The NSW Government recognises that our national parks and reserves are special and unique places that deserve enduring protection. The Government is committed to their important role in conserving native flora and fauna and cultural heritage, and to improving community well-being through increased opportunities for recreation and tourism”.

As reported in the Dungog Chronicle, Jo New of the Black Bulga Range Action Group was thrilled by the government’s response to a community-driven campaign. “It goes to show what a wonderful impact local people can have after they do something simple, like posting a letter”.

Talk:Indonesian fishermen jailed for fishing offences in Australian waters

What is trochus shell? And why would I want two tonnes of it? -Edbrown05 20:36, 7 January 2006 (UTC)

Good point. Trochus shell is used in the manufacture of high quality buttons, beads and trinkets. There is no Wikipedia entry on trochus shell. Here are some llinks in the hope somebody will one day write an entry…

New Research To Help Trochus Stocks – November 2001: [1] Department of Fisheries, Government of Western Australia In 2001, the current global demand for trochus shell is estimated at about 7,000 tonnes annually, worth about A$50 – $60 million. In Australia, trochus is found in Queensland and in Western Australia, (WA).

In WA trochus are found on coral reefs of the Buccaneer and Bonaparte Archipelagos in the Kimberley and offshore at Rowley Shoals, Browse Island, Scott Reef, Seringapatam Reef, Ashmore Reef and Cartier Island.

There is a strong worldwide demand for trochus shell. Most of the shells collected in the Kimberley region are currently sold through Perth at a wholesale price of about $9.50 per kg.

Some of the Aboriginal groups are value-adding this product by polishing trochus shells for ornaments which sell for $20 to $50 a piece. Recent interest has also been expressed on the processing and export of trochus meat which is known to fetch a high price in Japan…

Farming Trochus “Trochus niloticus (Mollusca: Gastropoda) is commonly known as the topshell or trochus shell and by various names in the countries where it occurs naturally. It is a large, conical-shaped, marine gastropod (snail) of shallow tropical reefs that can attain a size of over 120 mm, measured across the base. The shell of trochus has external mottled red-green and white bands and a thick inner layer of mother-of-pearl (nacre), which makes it valuable for manufacture of jewellery and buttons for highlypriced garments…”

Natural Habitat Adult trochus inhabit intertidal and shallow (less than 5 m depth) areas of tropical coral reefs that receive strong wave or tidal action. In the King Sound Region they are often found on hard reef surfaces dominated by short algae rather than corals or other attached invertebrates. They are also found around the edges of boulders within the intertidal zone, avoiding areas covered with sand or mud (Nash, 1985). Trochus do not usually occur on sandstone reefs if these lack the three-dimensional matrix structure typical of coral reefs.

General Biology Trochus are mainly herbivorous and have separate sexes. However, males and females cannot be distinguished from external shell characteristics, but sex ratios in the wild are close to 1:1. Size at sexual maturity varies with location, being in the range of 50 – 70 mm. This is reached in two to three years and individuals are known to live for up to 12 years, but growth rates also vary with location (Nash, 1993). In WA, adults attain about 100 mm base shell diameter in about five years and their growth rate slows to below one millimetre per month.

Direct Marketing Elements That Deliver Results In Real Estate Investing

Submitted by: Simonn Machariaa

Success in real estate investing largely depends on successful marketing of your business. Targeted direct mail delivers excellent results as long as two conditions are met:

1) That your leads are well targeted – for instance, if your audience is motivated sellers, they must people that NEED to sell their houses

2) That your direct marketing piece – post card or letter stands out from the rest and convinces them to take action NOW

This article focuses on how to guarantee success of your direct marketing campaigns.

Laser targeted leads

If your leads are not well targeted, you are unlikely to get good results.

YouTube Preview Image

For example, when targeting motivated sellers, you must target

i) People who really NEED to sell their houses – such as people going through divorce, bankruptcy, probates, burned landlords, expired listings, etc. In other words, you must target people who find that they must get rid of their house to get back to normal life

ii) Specific neighborhoods and price ranges – your business model is the most likely determining factor for this

iii) Equity – the houses you buy probably need to have some equity In this case, someone who refinanced or bought their house last year may not be your best bet

Unique marketing proposition

If your marketing piece looks like all the other “We Buy Houses” mail, the response you get is likely to be minimal at best. Your marketing must stick out from the rest:

i) Noticeable mail piece – use post cards with screaming colors. Red, yellow, green and blue seem to give me excellent results in my marketing. In other words in a pile of mail that motivated sellers receive, they must be able to instantly pick yours out of curiosity.

If you send letters, they must stick out from all the other bills, and junk mail they receive every day. For example, using a regular envelop hand-written in red and a big postal stamp gets excellent results.

You can also use odd-sized or colored envelops to increase noticeability.

ii) Powerful headline – it must compel the reader to continue reading

iii) Personalized – whenever possible, your letters should be fully personalized. They must feel you are addressing their personal needs

iv) Powerful content – you must state the problem and provide a solution powerful enough to agitate the reader to really NEED what you are offering

v) Benefits – The solution you offer must include benefits of taking up your offer. They must see you as the only person who can help them. You must create an offer they cannot resist

vi) Deadline – you must have a deadline in all your marketing materials.Give a specific date. You can tell them you will buy only one more house. This gives them a reason to act NOW!

vii) Call to action – what do they need to do next? Go to this website and sign up. Pick up the phone and call this number now. It must be precise and direct

viii) P.S. – most people start with the P.S. before they look at anything else. It needs to re-state the benefits, deadline and call to action to be effective
