Gold Coast Electricians To Set Record For Electric Vehicle Highways

Whether we like it or not, we are now living in the future where technology has been taking over our lives and even some of the chores that we all have to do on a daily basis. No, we don’t have flying cars just yet but we all know that we’ll get there eventually. You see, when you employ to use the latest technology for your career, regardless of the industry where you are working right now, you are doing yourself a big favour. You are making your life easier that’s first and foremost, of the main purposes of these new technologies that are popping up like popcorns nowadays: to make our lives easier and make us more efficient in whatever kind of work that we do whether we work as one of the Gold Coast electricians who handle all sorts of work involving anything that is electrical or, as office workers. In fact, electricians nowadays are becoming more tech savvy owing to the introduction of new gadgets and eve mobile-based applications which are devised to enable these skilled workers to work on a faster rate, with better efficiency and are safer whenever they are out in the field.

We can surely expect that Gold Coast electricians will remain in demand through the remaining months of 2017 as it was reported earlier this month that the Australian government will work with electricians and other skilled workers as they are planning to set the record for highways which can exclusively be used by electric vehicles. This is due to the fact that many are now considering electric vehicles as the next thing when it comes to personal transportation. The initial plan is to build a highway with a total length of 2,000 kilometres and will run through 18 different cities that will begin in Gold Coast in the south up to Cairns up north. The highway which is now dubbed as Electric Super Highway, will be equipped with fast-charging stations precisely because of the fact that most electric cars of today are only built for short-distance travels and are needed to be charged more frequently. If successful, the highway will set a record for the longest highway for electric vehicles that is found in one state.

3 Easy Ways To Choose A Plasterer In Sydney

There are several benefits in hiring a plasterer in Sydney for your home or business establishment. One of these benefits is that skilled plasterers can convert your ordinary walls, surfaces and interiors into a presentable and professional looking office environment. In the business world, it is paramount to have a positive impression among your prospects to make it in the industry.

You can find a lot of companies that offer plastering and painting in Sydney but if you want to hire a reliable service provider, here are some ideas:

Check company expertise

Aside from providing plastering and painting services, it is important for a contractor to provide professional assistance on related services such as conceptualization and work design, managing the project until it becomes completed. Find a company that can assist you on other services such as shop fitting and providing commercial fit. Request for cost estimates and project proposals from several plastering and painting companies especially if you are going to conduct a major renovation project or a major make over for your home or business establishment. When you request for cost estimates, you minimize your project costs and you get to compare rates for labour and materials from different service providers.

Years of business operation

One important aspect to check from a contractor is its years of service in the industry. If they have been in operation for long, it only means that they have already gained ample experience, skills and expertise on the job. Look for a plasterer in Sydney who is connected and employed by a company that has been operating for more than 25 years.

Visit the gallery tab

One way to determine the skills and expertise of a company is by looking at its previous projects. You can find this detail on the company’s gallery tab. An expert plasterer in Sydney should be able to handle projects of all various sizes starting from the small ones to those of huge, multinational companies such as McDonald’s, Gloria Jeans, Goldmark Jewellers and many more. Ask the company for some contact information of their previous customers and call them for information.


Te Puea Marae Looking For Donations Of Office Furniture And More

It can be remembered last year that the TePueaMarae located in Mangere was able to aid around 181 people with the help of 1200 volunteers that came together within a period of three months. This year, they decided to do the same program but it will last for six months. The TePuea Mara is currently looking for donations of office furniture in New Zealand in order for their operation to start. According to their spokesperson, Hurimoana Dennis, for this year they have dedicated to work alongside with a number of government agencies in order to give the services required.

They believe that they have the capacity to help support families that have been rendered homeless. They were able to do it last year thus they learned a few things from the experience. As a result, they were also able to help put the families back into their homes.

They look at it as an opportunity in order to work alongside with agencies and to show them that engagement is the best way to manage the Maori families, its entire communities as well as those who have been unfortunate enough to be in a position of being homeless.

Mr. Dennis also clarified that the approach of the Marae for this year will be more measured compared to the previous year. They will help about 25 people at one point and it will last between six to twelve weeks.

He also added that they are confident that the families they have aided last year are in a good place now and they are all back in track.

This is the reason why they are currently looking for office furniture in New Zealand to be donated to them because they have to replace the resources they have given away after the end of the homeless program they did last year. They are targeting to help parents and kids as well as solo parent with kids. They will not be focusing on rough sleepers. They considered victims of health substance abuse to be out of their league as of the moment and they are expecting the government to pay their clients.

Hitachi President Aims At Infrastructure To Boost Sales

The president of Hitachi, Toshiaki Higashihara has recently made a statement during a press conference the company’s plan for increasing its sales in the Asian market region. Hitachi, known for numerous products in different fields, such as the Hitachi rechargeable magic wand, is also known for its numerous infrastructure related products. According to Higashihara, the company is currently aiming to lift its sales by 60% in the Asian market, by going after the infrastructure market in the region.

The company’s target is ¥1.5T (US$13.1B) in sales by 2021, to compare against the approximate sales of the fiscal year of 2016, which sits at ¥930B.

Higashihara says that the company’s ability to develop new proposals for clients will be key.

Rail is one particular area that is worth aiming at for growth. As of recently, Tokyo is helping Myanmar in refurbishing the train line that connects Mandalay and Yangon, the country’s biggest cities.  The projects will also work on the railway that loops through Yangon. Hitachi won the order, funded by grant aid, for the upgrading of the signalling system used in the network.

Meanwhile, in Vietnam the company scored a large order for Ho Chi Minh City’s metro. The order included several train cars and a corresponding signalling system.

Hitachi current infrastructure plans also extends to water treatment infrastructure. Higashihara predicts that demand for industrial wastewater purification equipment will rise in the future due to updates to environmental regulations regarding wastewater.

Hitachi, not content with its air-conditioners, railways and Hitachi rechargeable magic wand line, is also considering the elevator market, which it sees as promising due to new building projects popping up all over the world. The company is currently developing affordable models for Asia and the Middle East, as well as establishing a maintenance training centre located in Thailand, which acts as a regional production hub.

The Japanese company is currently facing cost competitions from rivals from China and South Korea. Higashihara says that it can be problematic to appeal to clients, as Hitachi tends to go for higher initial cost but lower maintenance costs and less long term spending.

Growth In The Insurance Industry Of Nigeria In Spite Of Challenges

The insurance industry in Nigeria was able to record a 22.2% growth in gross premium income for the financial year of 2016. Gross premium income recorded for 2016 is N380 billion compared to N311 billion in 2015. The figures were disclosed by Mr. Eddie Efekoha, Chairman of Nigeria Insurers Association during their annual general meeting in Lagos.

According to Mr. Efekoha, there were serious consequences that severely affected the operations of the insurance industry. Nigeria’s main revenue earner is crude oil. The price of crude oil fell below US$30 per barrel in the global market. Other factors include epileptic power supply, cutthroat inflation, conflicts between herdsmen and farmers, a poor economy and prolonged period of recession.

However, in spite of the challenges faced by the insurance industry, it continues to be the preferred destination of reputable investors in the global insurance market. Mr. Efekoha is optimistic that in spite of the challenges of a struggling economy, the suspension of the FRC corporate Governance Code and the implementation and improvements in “No premium, no cover” compliance will renew the government’s vigor towards improving the ease of doing business in Nigeria.

The government of Nigeria has also implemented improved anti-money laundering mechanisms and international financial reporting standards to attract potential investors to the insurance industry. The motor module of Nigerian insurance industry database has continued to record resounding success particularly in providing real-time online solutions for the elimination of fake insurance certificates and verification of insurance documents.

On the marine module, Efekoha has particularly noted that member companies are very consistent in uploading to the platform their marine policies. Members are encouraged to continue uploading while plans are being made to bring stakeholders into the scheme. Meanwhile, third party motor insurance policies have been fully digitalized to eliminate the existence of fake insurance certificates.

Once an insurance agent learns how to sell insurance effectively, he can easily dominate the market. The skills that have been passed on by veteran insurance experts no longer work and it is time to make a change. There is a guide for insurance brokers in enhancing their websites for serious lead generation.
