What to Look for In a Cabinets Design and Manufacture Service
There are a great many Melbourne businesses that offer cabinets of any type, so choosing which is best can be hard. As this decision is very important, one should always compare all available options and pick the company that meets the following requirements:
• They must have experience.
It’s essential to check whether the firm has experience in the particular kind of project one is interested in. Unfortunately, being good in cabinets used for kitchen renovations doesn’t necessarily mean that the company is able to make great pieces for an urban office. It’s best to always check their portfolio to make sure they’ve handled jobs like this before and succeeded.
• The company must have right values.
For example, Urban Kitchens is oriented towards ergonomic and cutting-edge design. Their service will work best for people who are interested in maximizing the use of their space or those who want to have an original contemporary home. A client should always start with thinking what’s most important for them and look for a company that shares these values.
• They must offer guarantees.
Urban Kitchens gives a 10-year warranty to their clients and they use top-quality hardware and materials delivered from different parts of the world. Any cabinet manufacturer must be just as dedicated to delivering top-quality service in every detail.
Urban Kitchens is a business specializing in design and creation of stunning cabinets. Their products come in a variety of custom configurations as each piece is designed to meet the exact needs of the client.

Mexicans call people that consume American products or move to USA “Malinchistas” as in traitors who prefer foreign stuff other then Mexican made products.
People love to hate Malinche, either way, she is the mother of the Mexican mixed rase, she gave birth to her son Martin, half European, half Aztec, and with him, she gave birth to a new civilization, Mexicans.

And as you watch her be, you become part of the story.

ADDISON,TX – 29 Apr, 2017 – This Mother’s Day, Dallas nonprofit HELPS International is asking people to celebrate the women who shaped them by donating a tax-deductible, life-changing gift designed to empower the women of Guatemala. The HELPS100 Campaign was created to help 100 Guatemalan women obtain fuel-efficient cook stoves and high-quality water filters.
“This campaign to celebrate and empower women is such a worthy cause and donations can be made on behalf of the women in our own lives who inspire us,” stated Bill McMillan, executive director of HELPS International. “For as little as $50, we can honor our mothers, sisters and friends while changing the lives of women in some of Guatemala’s most underserved communities.”
Millions of women in rural Guatemala must spend hours each day kneeling on dirt floors to cook over open fires in their homes in order to feed their families. This results in many small children suffering severe burns from the flames of the open pits in their homes. In addition to the risk of burns, smoke from the open fires builds up quickly and causes respiratory issues from poor ventilation. And very few of these same homes are equipped with clean sources of water that are safe for drinking.
To solve these issues, former HELPS medical team leader Don O’Neal, a retired mechanical engineer, invented a simple stove from locally sourced materials. The concrete-block base, Plancha-top (Spanish for “iron”) ONIL stove replaces traditional ground-based, in-home cooking fire pits and is vented through the dwelling’s rooftop to eliminate both respiratory problems and the risk of severe burns. It also reduces wood consumption by 70 percent, allowing increased time for activities once spent gathering wood. To facilitate a clean drinking water source, the ONIL Gravity Water Filters now eliminate 100 percent of parasites and 99.9 percent of pathogenic bacteria.
As a part of this year’s campaign, HELPS International is on a mission to raise crucial funds to help 100 Guatemalan women stand up, save money and keep their families healthy and safe by donating fuel-efficient cook stoves and high-quality water filters. Donations will go to purchase the ONIL stoves and water filters, which will be installed by volunteers from the HELPS Women Helping Women initiative alongside the recipients, who have paid a portion of the cost.
To donate, please visit the HELPS100 Campaign donation page.
To date, HELPS’ volunteers and supporters have worked alongside the people of Guatemala to provide more than 250,000 homes with clean air and water, more than 4,000 farming families with the skills and resources to boost crop production, and nearly 475 students with a high-quality education.
About HELPS International
Since 1984, HELPS International’s growing community of volunteers and sponsors has been changing lives in Guatemala with extraordinary dedication. HELPS’ mission is to provide enduring programs of practical, social and spiritual value to people in the developing world through a system of partnership and mutual responsibility.

For most people who are operating an app on their computer while multitasking, it is imperative that they maintain an active presence to prevent the app from timing out or their PC from powering down. In the past, this usually required constant interruptions to return to the PC and jiggle the mouse, but with the invention of the Lookin’ Busy device that is no longer necessary. This simple yet ingenious product uses an incrementally rotating surface under your mouse—along with mouse stabilizer pads to secure your optical mouse—to simulate activity.
Lookin’ Busy will soon be a staple of teleworkers and multitaskers everywhere. This simple yet highly effective device will keep open online video calls, remote work sessions and other timed applications, allowing you to step away for minutes, hours or even days. Unlike other devices, Lookin’ Busy does not require system drivers or software. Because it is a stand-alone device, it only needs a power outlet or a USB charging stick to function; and it will operate almost indefinitely as long as power is supplied.
You can now get your own Lookin’ Busy Mouse Mover through an exclusive Kickstarter campaign. The Lookin’ Busy Mouse Mover is available in a wide variety of colors and is available at a steeply discounted pre-order price. Some packages even include a phone call with the Lookin’ Busy team.

In 2017, the lucrative Chinese market is no longer a secret, in fact quite the opposite. Every brand, in every industry is trying to get a piece of this booming opportunity.
Whilst a lot of brands are looking at huge market in China, Luxion Media (www.luxion.com.au) has been helping many of the biggest brands in Australia target the million or so Chinese living, studying, working and touring Australia.
“We have worked with all kinds of brands across all industries, from fashion, to tourism, to sports. Almost any business can now benefit from more Chinese customers,” explain Luxion Media director William Chen.
Luxury is a particularly lucrative area. “When working with Luxury Brands in Australia, often 20% to as high as 60% of their clients are already Chinese, this presents a huge opportunity and need for these brands to actively engage and increase their presence amongst wealthy Chinese audience in Australia”
One of the innovative ways Luxion Media have helped these luxury brands achieve success is through a Chinese Luxury Car Club called Zoomspeed (www.zoomspeed.com.au).
Zoomspeed started in 2013 with about 20 passionate Chinese BMW owners and has since grown to over 600 members, owning a total of more than $50 million worth of cars, ranging from high end Mercedes, BMW to supercars from Lamborghini, Ferrari and McLaren.
“Although our passion for cars brings us together, our group is much more than just about cars. A lot of our members are entrepreneurs and business leaders, and there is often a lot of business networking and deals being done through the group” says Zoomspeed founder and Luxion Media co-founder Will Yuan.
However, the opportunity from this group extends beyond just the members. Over the last 2 years, through Luxion Media, Zoomspeed has worked with some of Australia’s top luxury brands and have achieved amazing success through a combination of it’s influential and affluent members, as well as Chinese marketing campaign.
“We invited several of our members to an exclusive Maserati drive day experience, by putting them in the cars and letting them experience the power and beauty of the Maserati cars, everyone simply fell in love with the cars. In fact someone from the day actually bought a Maserati! Not a bad return on investment!” recalls William.
“The opportunity from the group isn’t limited to automotive brands either, being young and affluent, with huge spending power, they enjoy an extravagant life, which presents extraordinary opportunities for fashion, lifestyle, entertainment and leisure brands.”
“This Chinese influencer group acts as bit of a catalyst for a lot of our Chinese marketing campaigns (www.luxion.com.au). We often start with an event, but through this event, we can create a lot of amazing content from photos to videos, which we can then use to fuel additional marketing campaigns through Chinese social media channels and WeChat marketing (www.luxion.com.au/wechat-marketing).”
Luxury brands have had a honeymoon period of sorts over the last 5-10 years. Many brands were able to achieve great success in China on their brand name along, however the Chinese luxury has well and truly shifted, luxury buyers are much more savvy, and are no longer buying on brand name alone. Luxury Brands need to step up their marketing game and find new and innovative ways to cut through the competition.

China – 2 May, 2017 – Chinese machinery manufacturing giant JYF MACHINERY concentrates on the production and distribution of grinder wear parts, auger teeth, trencher teeth, and stump grinder parts known for superior deterioration-resistant properties.
JYF MACHINERY clients worldwide attest to the fact that the company’s products are more effective than other competitors in the industry. In fact, continuous use of these accessories increased use time by one-fourth to one-third percent.
The grinder wear parts contain Tungsten Carbide particles. The double grain composition of Tungsten Carbide is more durable compared to standard coarse grain cemented carbide. This fine gray powder (chemical compound) contains equal portions of tungsten and carbon atoms. It has maximum solidity of 90 to 93 HRA (Rockwell Scale) and highest impact robustness of over 2, 800 MPA.
This is considered an improvement in performance of between 25% and 33% which implies clients spend less for grinder wear parts because of longer-operating time of JYF MACHINERY.
The surface is impervious to wear and tear due to the custom-built CR-W finish with maximum rigidity of 60 up to 65 HRC. Said welding stick features extreme abrasion performance and resistance against impact.
The steel body of JYF MACHINERY grinder wear parts is built with special corrosion-resistant alloy that boasts of extraordinary toughness capable of enduring tremendous impact after the tempering process. The low-temperature heat treatment technique is made following the course of hardening so the preferred hardness-toughness ration is achieved. These features safeguard and prolong the life cycle of grinder wear parts.
JYF MACHINERY horizontal grinder components are used to pulverize tree stumps, wood barks, clipped or trimmed branches, waste wood and other biomass in the eco-system caused by massive clearing of forests. This addresses the issues of recycling reprocessing residential as well as industrial waste materials. Grinding is useful to recycling and minimizes processing expenditures.
Trencher teeth are made from Tungsten Carbide with high strength, durability and resistance against deterioration. The trencher is a type of equipment used for construction to excavate trenches particularly for pipe and cable installation; installing drainage systems, and preparation for warfare.
The steel surface is formed by special alloy that resists oxidation and extends the lifespan of the Trencher teeth. Welding techniques were brought from as far as Northern Europe thereby allowing the merging together of alloy and alloy composition in metal bodies to achieve extreme welding potency.
About the Company
JYF MACHINERY maintains grinder wear parts factories. Clients can purchase these along with an assortment of products that include forestry mulcher teeth holders; rotary milling tools; welding bars; flat teeth; trencher wear parts; trencher teeth; mining cutting tools; grinder hammers; and many others at wholesale prices. The company uses only high-quality cemented carbide for efficient cutting performance.
JYF MACHINERY supplies trencher wear components along with a wide range of tools and tooling configurations for the mining sector.

For most busy local and expatriate families living in Singapore, a small prosperous country in South East Asia, many may consider hiring a full-time maid in Singapore or a part-time cleaner. This is not an easy decision to take, though. It is important to be sure that you can handle a foreign worker who may not be comfortable or even aware of the way of life and laws of Singapore.
After thinking and feeling that you really need full-time domestic help, the next step is to choose a trusted maid agency and to get one either via Maid Agency in Singapore or try looking up on the Ministry of Manpower website for list licensed maid agency.
Through a Licensed Maid Employment Agency
Whenever possible, the advisable option to take is to contact a licensed maid employment agency. With a legitimate agency, you do not have to worry about the details of the requirement of legally hiring a maid in Singapore. Even though you need to participate in meeting the requirements as required by the Ministry of Manpower, a licensed agency will ensure that all documents are ready and that you do not miss a step and waste valuable time. Maid agencies also offer additional resources to employers whenever a worker performance is unsatisfactory and an agency can provide invaluable advice and assist in mediating the situation for a positive outcome.
One of the established and reputable Maid Agency in Singapore with over 30 years of experience that comes to mind to many will be Universal Employment Agency Pte Ltd and they can be reached at via their website universal.sg or through their facebook page https://www.facebook.com/UniversalEmploymentAgency/
Remember, do ensure that whichever maid agency that you are dealing with are authorized to operate formally by the Ministry of Manpower and in addition it would be better if that agency is accredited either by the Associated of Employment Agencies Singapore (AEAS) or Consumer Association of Singapore (CASE) for good business practice.
You can find more of these maid agencies along the Orchard Road area, including the Far East Plaza Mall and Lucky Plaza Shopping Centre.
Direct Hiring your own maid
You may prefer to direct hire your own maid, perhaps through a personal referral from friends or relatives or maybe even bringing back your previous maid. If that is the case, you can either direct hire a maid in her own country or arrange a transfer if the maid is already in Singapore and she is eligible for transfer. Here are the general requirements you should take note of:
First-time Employers should complete an Employer Orientation Programme (EOP) before hiring any foreign domestic worker. This can be accomplished online but you do need your SingPass ready.
Employers will either need to be a Singapore Citizen/PR or S Pass/E Pass holders and above 21 years old to apply.
Do note that Maid Levy is a monthly fee payable to the Government and is $265 or if you are eligible for Low levy, then it will be just $60. The medical examination of the maid must be done every six months and this cost must also be paid by the employer. Additional expenses include food, lodging, insurance, and a return air ticket if the maid does recontract for another 2 years with you.
Before the maids are allowed to work, all first-time maid must complete the Settling-In-Programme.
The considerations of an employer go far beyond the legal and documentary requirements. There are also some other important points to keep in mind.
A foreign domestic worker is not allowed to get pregnant while working in the country. It is up to each employer to ensure this does not happen.
The age limit for domestic workers is 23 to 50 years. The maid must also have at least eight years of formal education.
Foreign domestic workers are not allowed to perform non-domestic work tasks.
It is a good policy to educate foreign domestic workers regarding the culture and laws of Singapore.
Foreign domestic workers in Singapore will not present problems if treated well, given due respect and understanding. That is why it is very important that employers know the appropriate steps to employ a maid in Singapore.

PHOENIX, AZ – 3 May, 2017 – Nursery Rhymes of Zhymes was inspired by the spirit we all have inside of us. It was mostly written on a miraculous journey in Uganda, Africa. These poems have been read to both children and adults, setting them free…simply to be.
We asked Joel Crotzer, author of Nursery Rhymes of Zhymes, why he wrote this book. “I would like to start with a disclaimer,” Joel stated after a brief moment of contemplation, “I am no conspiracist but it is apparent that mind games are still a foot. It all begins at a nursery age–rhymes. Nursery rhymes are not evil in themselves but what is planted along with the program. In America, it’s all technological, fast and easy but we free thinkers are not so easily subliminized. All the nations in this world operate this way.”
Why the focus on Africa? “We go there to teach life. Not just church or religion but business, government, family, media, arts, entertainment, and education. There is no place like Africa where time began,” replied Joel.
Joel C Crotzer was born in the small town of Dahlonega, GA site of the first Gold Rush. In 1992 he became C.E.O. of North Georgia Glass & Mirror at 22 years of age. He is a devout entrepreneur in business, devoted husband, and father, and has been the Senior Pastor of Fortress International Ministries for over 16 years.
Joel feels privileged to have spiritually fathered children of all ages, all over the world and in every facet of life. His goal is to teach real lessons on all areas of life, family, business, government, and of course the kingdom of God, so that anyone can apply and become successful. Joel believes that hard work, dedication, and faith make any dream possible.
Bringing faith to the children of Africa is a courageous undertaking, why did you feel this was so important? “Faith opens all the senses of the soul from anger to passion. Faith makes poetry possible and when the human soul is open the mind can receive great revelations. When we believe, we are free to dream, see, hear, and taste life in all its glory and power.” Joel continued, “People are people wherever you go. There is only one race, human. When oppression is broken, we see life correctly and we are all the same on the inside.”
Remember, big brother is watching, but we are the seers of it all. It is better to see than to watch, one will make you blind the otherwise. Nursery Rhymes of Zhymes stops time in the mind and unlocks its ability to see as a child. We do jobs we hate and live lives we would not have chosen; few ever find true zhymes.
For more information on the journey, contact Joel C. Crotzer by email at email@example.com or (470) 239-1940.
