I’m A Proud Aussie

I have to say that I’m a proud Aussie. This is because as a rule Aussies are a pretty good bunch. Sure there are some wankers out there but they’re a minority. Generally we’re pretty generous and try to help whenever we can. We haven’t always been that way. Historically we’ve made mistakes but there are dark historical spots in all countries.

I actually came across one of those dark spots in history in a FaceBook post. The darkness was the way we treated one of our own, Peter Norman, when he stood up to do the right thing and was pretty well crucified for it. I was only 10 at the time and don’t remember it but am very proud of Peter Norman although shameful of the way we treated him.

There are many reasons I’m a proud Aussie. I live in a beautiful country full of Aussies who excel in what they do. This includes sports, current legends like Tim Cahill who’s had an enormous impact for the Socceroos at the World Cup and Sally Pearson.

We’ve got a lot of popular exports in sport as well including Jarryd Hayne who’s gone from NRL to NFL.

Lets not forget our acting talent as well. People like Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, the late Heath Ledger, Simon Baker, Naomi Watts, Paul Hogan and the list goes on and on.

Then there’s Craig Revel Horwood, a renowned Aussie dancer, choreographer and theatre director.

A lot of the stuff we take for granted is because of Aussie inventions. Take Wi-Fi for example. We owe that to a bloke called John O’Sullivan.

Aussies developed the bionic ear, the first race cam, the baby safety capsule, spray on skin to help burn victims. There are also inventions Aussies take for granted that others probably have never heard of, like the Hills Hoist, something that I have in my own back yard,

Yeah, there’s so many reasons that make me proud to be an Australian.

Everything You Wanted to Know About Domain Names

Most people today are pretty web savvy, but there are still some things that, although we see the words every day, we still aren’t quite sure what they are, how they work and what we need them for. One of those everyday mystery terms is domain names. Back in the early days of the Internet, there were big stories in the news about insightful go-getters who foresaw the potential of certain major brands and the names of well-known persons in history or celebrities, and snapped them up, registered them, and then made a fortune selling them.Those heady days of get-rich-quick on the Internet are over fo the most part, but anyone who plans a website needs to have a domain registered.

What is A Domain?

Your domain name is your handle, so to speak, and it’s used to tell the Internet your location in cyberspace. It’s similar to a physical address on your home or business in the real world, and each domain must be unique.

How Do I Create and Register My Domain?

Your domain name should relate to your purpose. Someone should be able to look at the domain name and have a rough idea if your are a business, an informational website, or a person. This make take some doing, as even variations of common names or business types may already be taken. You may be able to use a domain name that’s taken by choosing a different suffix; for example, mywebsite.net, as opposed to mywebsite.com. Suffixes can differentiate your location (mywebsite.eu), state that you’re a non-profit (my website.org) and let users know if you’re an institute of higher learning or government agency (mywebsite.edu or mywebsite.gov).

You can learn if a domain name is already owned by performing a web search. There are companies where you can type your potential domain name into a search bar, and it will let you know if that name is already taken. If not, then great; you can claim it and register it for a small fee. If it’s already in use, or owned, the search will provide that information, along with the price of purchasing that domain name from the current owner. That can run you anywhere from a few dollars to thousands of dollars, depending on the popularity of the name.

Where Do I get a Domain?

Once you choose a name, you have to register it. This is like getting a trademark or a copyright; once you purchase and register your domain, you own the rights to it and know one else can use it. You buy and register your domain with the company used for your search. You don’t have to use your domain immediately, so if you’re only in the exploratory stage of building a website, you’ll already have your domain purchased and registered for when you’re ready to use it.

Is My Domain Fixed in Cyberspace?

When you purchase and register your domain, it’s yours and it will remain registered to that provider. You can transfer domain name to another provider for a small fee, providing that it is a valid domain, that it is registered properly and that you own that domain. However, there is usually a stipulation that the domain must have been previously registered for a specified period of time, and it can take up to a week for the transfer to be completed.

When You’ve Been Sidelined By An Injury At Work

I know there are times when an employee gets injured in the workplace. Usually their employer does the right thing and does all they can to look after the injured employee. Unfortunately that is not always the case. When employers try to get out of fulfilling their obligation the employee has no other recourse except to seek legal advice.

Finding the right lawyer to handle the case can always be a chore. Before making a decision you should always have a private chat with a prospective solicitor to find out how they can help you. Checking their past performance and qualifications is also a great idea.

If you live in the Iowa area I’ve come across this spiel by James P Hoffman that sounds pretty good, even though it does sound a tad like a commercial.

When You’ve Been Sidelined By An Injury At Work

You’re a dedicated employee that does your job and does it well. When you’ve been injured on the job, whether it’s due to negligence or an accident, you expect your employer to stand by you.

You didn’t ask for an injury at work and you didn’t ask for the heaping medical bills that came with it. Now you have a long road ahead. Recovery and rehabilitation takes time. There is even the possibility of long-term disability. While you are at home and recuperating from your illness, you have to face a period of lost wages. Without workers compensation, you will be in serious trouble. You still have bills to pay, a family to feed, and a host of other obligations. After an injury, the top priority should be getting better. That’s easier said than done when you have to worry about where money is going to come from. Stop worrying and enlist the aid of James P. Hoffman.
