Melbourne Immigration Agent Expects Continued Growth on Back of Census Data
Australian Immigration Agency, a leading Melbourne Immigration consultancy, expects the strong growth they are experiencing to continue due to the continued strength in immigration numbers recently released by The Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Mrs Ruby Fowdar, CEO of Australian Immigration Agency said, “We are a beneficiary of increasing immigration numbers as more people are needing the services of an expert immigration agent to assist gain entry into Australia” She went on to say, “The same is being experienced with Australians needing assistance in relocating to other countries where the entry documentation and issues encountered of some can be quite complex.”
Migrants to Australia tended to live in Australia’s two largest cities, Sydney and Melbourne, a trend seen in Australia since the late 1940s. The 2016 Australian Census reported that just under half of all migrants in Australia lived in these two cities, with 1.4 million residents of Sydney being born overseas. The Australian Bureau of Statistics in their latest report on the 2016 Census confirms that there were 16,000 migrants arriving to Sydney each month alone.
Mrs Fowdar said, “We have been providing immigration services to local and international clients for several years now and there has been a marked increase in requests for our assistance in recent years. This increase in enquiry is in line with the growth in new arrivals seeking temporary and permanent residency in the country, as detailed in the latest Census data. We expect our strong revenue growth to continue as the enquiry level from those wanting to immigrate to Australia shows no sign of abating.”

Australian Fashion Tech Brand Launches In The UK
Science and modern technology come together to create stylish period and leak-proof underwear for everybody
Australian underwear brand Modibodi has landed in the UK, combining gorgeous and comfortable underwear with incredible technology to offer period, pee and perspiration proof underwear and swimwear for all women, of all shapes and sizes. After selling hundreds of thousands of pairs and becoming hugely popular in Australia and the US, the innovative brand has launched a UK website and distribution centre to ensure that women across the UK can get their hands on a pair or two of these ingenious undies.
Founder and CEO Kristy Chong has spent many years working with top Aussie lingerie designers and developing her special and exclusive patented technologies that make up the way the underwear works, including the patented Modifier Technology™ and the patent pending Modifier Swim Technology, to bring women all over the globe a range of leak-proof, lightweight and stylish underwear. The UK website will feature a range of 16 different underwear and swimwear pieces, each with different benefits; including the active underwear- ideal for gym bunnies and those that work out and maternity undies – perfect for new mums. With a range of styles including seamfree, high waisted and thongs, there is something for everybody.
According to CEO and Founder, Kristy Chong “Modibodi™ gives women the freedom to live life in a fearless, sustainable and fashionable way. From periods, to discharge, to light bladder leakage and even mummy breast milk leaks, my aim was to make underwear and swimwear that was fashionable but utilised technology to offer protection and a more sustainable choice.”
The clever and exclusive Modifier Technology™ featured in the flagship Modibodi period and pee-proof underwear features a three-layer component; the top layer quickly wicks away moisture, fights bacteria and stops odors, a middle layer quickly absorbs fluid and locks it away (up to 20 mls absorbency) and the third bottom layer gives you extra leak-proof protection, ensuring you are at your most secure and confident, with no leaking through to clothes, which means total freedom.
As a fashion tech entrepreneur and social advocate, Kristy was inspired to develop, design and create Modibodi™ after her second child due to her own experience with pelvic floor issues. Kristy noted that despite modern advancements our underwear has remained the same.
“In a world where technology has improved women’s day to day lives from sleep through to exercise, I felt it was high time that our underwear took on the same route.” said Kristy
The Modibodi™ collection is a whole new solution to everyday life, from menstrual flow to incontinence, for day-to-day, swimming or when working out, all in a fashionable, sustainable and reusable way, reducing the amount of single-use products that end up in UK landfills. Modibodi™ products go beyond comfort and style, their mission goes beyond fashion – to empower women, to give women freedom and confidence and to give women choice.
Women often feel ashamed to be on their period and 1 in 3 women in the UK suffer from some form of bladder leakage. Modibodi offers a stain resistant, fast drying and odour free underwear that can be a total replacement for feminine hygiene products such as pads, panty liners and tampons. 100 years ago women got the right to vote- now it’s time to break taboos, open minds and allow technology to help where it really matters and start feeling secure everyday.
The full range, including bamboo underwear can be found at modibodi.co.uk and locally at modibodi.com
Modibodi, modern underwear and swimwear for all body types, launched late 2013. For almost two years Founder and CEO, Kristy Chong, spent her time designing, developing, and testing her patented Modifier Technology™ leak-proof undies into the Modibodi collection. Modibodi believes that making a positive impact should be as easy as changing the undies we wear and now your swimwear. Together with Modibodi, we are breaking taboos, opening minds, mentioning the “unmentionables” with a reusable, sustainable product line that will benefit all bodies on this planet.

Court Backlogs A Priority For New Law Society President
The Law Society of NSW marked the opening of the law term with some strong words from their new president, Doug Humphreys.
Victoria, Australia – April, 2018 /PressCable/ —
Humphreys made it clear this his priority as president of the Law Society of NSW would be to lobby for more resources for Legal Aid and reducing extensive delays in the judicial systems as his highest priorities.
“Delays in the trial courts as well as the Family Court because of a backlog in matters and the increasing workloads of the judiciary are symptomatic of a justice system that is struggling to keep up with the needs of the community,” Mr Humphreys said.
As part of his recent speech at NSW Parliament, Mr Humphrey’s also noted that he would be working alongside Legal Aid to investigate further “alternatives to imprisonment” stating that there was still much work to be done.
Mr Humphreys has a legal career that expands over 35 years and has been a part of the Law Society since 2009. He was previously a director of criminal law at Legal Aid NSW and provides legal services to the Australian Army Legal Corps.
Sydney based family lawyer, Mr Hayder Shkara, believes that the court delays are having an immense impact on those who go through the process.
“The delays in the Federal Circuit & Family Court have become intolerable. There are ‘urgent’ matters being listed weeks in advance and it’s simply not good enough for the children and parties involved. Family law disputes can be emotionally draining and litigants want their matters finalised so they can move on with their lives,” Mr Shkara said.
Mr Shkara believes that the solution is in the hands of the Federal Government, and said “Sydney has the longest delays in the Family & Federal Circuit Court, with a 2 or 3-year wait for a final hearing. The stats in the rest of Australia aren’t particularly impressive, with 2-year wait in Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and Adelaide.”
Trials can drag on for several years meaning that children caught in custody disputes can grow into adults before a judge makes a ruling. Litigants may then wait for a further, lengthy period for a judgment and final orders to be delivered.
Numbers from parliamentary sources confirm that the number of new applications filed in the Federal Circuit Court exceeds the number of applications completed every successive year.
This has led to a current backlog in excess of 1,500 matters, and this is only expected to grow.

The Victorian Government on their Better Health website said, “To be fit and healthy you need to be physically active. Regular physical activity can help protect you from serious diseases such as obesity, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, diabetes and arthritis. Riding your bicycle regularly is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of health problems associated with a sedentary lifestyle.”
Mr Jonas Christensen, spokesperson for Bike Chaser said, ”Many generations have seen cycling as a healthy and the low-impact nature of cycling makes it a great activity for people of all ages. They have also seen it also as fun, cheap and good for the environment.” He went on to say, “Our customers are commenting more today than our team can ever remember that the health benefits of cycling are completely underestimated and has caused them to take this form of recreational exercise up over going to gyms.”
Inner city commuters have also noticed the rise in riding to work or the shops as an alternative to taking public transport or private cars. It’s seen as one of the most time-efficient ways to combine regular exercise with one’s everyday routine. According to the key findings from the Austroads 2013 Participation Survey, 3.6 million Australians ride a bike each week and 7.4 million had ridden at least once in the previous year.
An estimated one billion people ride bicycles everyday world wide for transport, recreation and sport.
Cycling for Health and Fitness:
It only takes two to four hours a week to achieve a general improvement in health. Cycling is: Low impact – it causes less strain and injuries than most other forms of exercise.+ A good muscle workout – cycling uses all the major muscle groups when peddling. + Easy – unlike some other sports, cycling does not require high levels of physical skill. + Most people know how to ride a bike and, once learned, it’s not forgotten. + Good for strength and stamina – cycling increases stamina, strength and aerobic fitness. + With intensity if desired – cycling can be done at very low intensity to begin with, if recovering from injury or illness, but can be built up to a demanding physical workout. + A fun way to get fit – the adventure and buzz of coasting down hills and being outdoors means one is more likely to continue to cycle regularly, compared to other indoor physical activities or require special times or places. + Time-efficient – as a mode of transport, cycling replaces sedentary (sitting) time spent driving motor vehicles or using trams, trains or buses with healthy exercise.
Health Benefits of Regular Cycling:
Cycling is mainly an aerobic activity, which means that heart, blood vessels and lungs all get a workout. Cyclists breathe deeper, perspire and experience increased body temperature, which will improves overall fitness levels.
The health benefits of regular cycling include: decreased stress levels – improved posture and coordination – strengthened bones decreased body fat levels prevention or management of disease reduced anxiety and depression. – increased muscle strength and flexibility – improved joint mobility – increased cardiovascular fitness – good health, and can reduce the chances of experiencing many health problems.

Increasing Trend In Recycling Observed In Melbourne
Melbourne based Rubbish Removal Services has observed a significant increase in recycling requests from their customers.

Carpet Cleaning Melbourne – Clients Urged To Book Before Spring Arrives
Melbourne Carpet Cleaning Company Urge Clients To Book Before Spring Arrives
Early spring predictions have resulted in an increased demand for carpet cleaning services in Sydney. The promise of good weather meant more home and business owners are bringing forward their spring cleaning projects with professional carpet cleaning companies in Melbourne reporting a spike in bookings this August. Demand is expected to intensify as the calendar moves closer to the official start of spring this year.
Last week, Weatherzone meteorologists predicted an earlier burst of spring for Melbourne. While another cold front is expected to hit the city in the following weeks, weather experts are saying that this could well be the last wintery blast Sydneysiders can expect for a while. Melbourne has already experienced some of its sunniest August in 22 years. According to experts, the sunny conditions are a pointer to the ongoing warmer spell ahead. If forecasts proved accurate, Sydney will only collect a couple of millimetres of rain over the next few weeks and is on target to post one of its driest July-August stretches since 1995.
An early spring is prompting more Melbourne home and business owners to schedule their spring cleaning projects earlier than usual. Gerard Kyrillos, owner-operator of DryTech Carpet Cleaning said that the company has received more enquiries from home owners in recent weeks. “We usually get a dozen or so enquiries in the month of August but this year, the numbers have doubled.”
2006 Media found one of the reasons for this spike could be more urgency to get the spring cleaning out of the way, so property owners can spend time outdoors earlier. Professional carpet cleaning is an essential part of most annual spring cleaning projects. Spring cleaning is that time of the year when homes get a serious clean and de-cluttering. Most home owners will include professional carpet cleaning as part of their spring clean project. Spring is probably the best time to do this as carpets would have seen a lot more use in winter when families stayed indoors.
Kyrillos said, “Spring is always one of the busiest times of the year for us because owners want to get the big cleaning task out of the way so they can focus on the more pleasurable things like enjoying their summer activities.” Mr. Kyrillos also said that more property owners are choosing steam cleaning because of its ability to eliminate harmful indoor allergens that can cause respiratory and allergic illnesses.
