The core maytherefore be made to perform a greater me-chanical duty. Hence the ideal wire forradio antenna should have a core of greatstrength (steel) and an outer covering of highconductivity (copper).

33 Postcards- Ritz

33 Postcards Movie Premiere At Randwick Ritz Sydney, by Eva Rinaldi

Tonight saw 33 Postcards enjoy its premiere at the Randwick Ritz, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The night was not only a movie premiere but also an event somewhat designed to raise awareness and funds for educational and arts programs, tied into the film.

33 Postcards enjoyed strong media support by popular radio station 2UE and benefiting Sydney Children’s Choir and their Bursary Program, giving disadvantaged kids musical and educational opportunities that would have otherwise likely been out of their grasp.

The acclaimed cast and crew of 33 Postcards enjoyed drinks and bites with their fan base, insiders, and entertainment media, and also lapped up performances from the Sydney Children’s Choir and Chinese Lion Dancers.

Then it was time for the Australian theatrical premiere of the flick.

The film was shot in both China and Sydney, Australia in 2010. It’s the story of Chinese orphan Mei Mei (Zhu Lin) who for a decade of dreams about embracing her Australian sponsor Dean Randall (Guy Pearce). It’s not until she reaches 16 years of age, when her orphanage travels down under to Australia to attend a Choir Festival, Mei Mei takes the opportunity to look him up. What she finds however is a far cry from the idyllic life he depicted in his postcards. Initially mismatched, together they begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance. It’s trial, tribulation, and living to fight and survive another day.

Dean is actually a convict in prison for manslaughter, so you can imagine the issues that brings on.

33 postcards won the Community Relations Commission Award at Sydney Film Festival and Victor Dominello MP NSW Minister aptly stated "33 Postcards, inspired by real life stories, explores how two individuals come together despite two different cultures, ages and unexpected circumstances." This evocative film portrays sensitively how people of vastly different cultural backgrounds can interact effectively in our society."

This is an unique and touching story that is rarely told about the relationship that some Aussies have with Chinese Orphans.

It’s not quite for everyone, but if you like a story of survival, beating the odds and the world coming together as one sort of thing, this is likely for you.

Well done to everyone involved in making the event a success.

Stars:

Guy Pearce, Zhu Lin, Claudia Karvan, and Lincoln Lewis

Produced by: Australia-China co-production

EvolvHealth And Evolv ? Complete Review Of The EvolvHealth Business

EvolvHealth And Evolv ? Complete Review Of The EvolvHealth Business

EvolvHealth Complete Review

EvolvHealth is a MLM company from Dallas, Texas. It was founded in 2007 by Trey White, a very successful entrepreneur with a track record in multi-billion dollar businesses. At present the drink is only available in the US and Canada, but it will be introduced in other countries across the world shortly, and so it is an interesting opportunity for people who are, or want to be, Distributors.

EvolvHealth markets a flavorless spring water drink called Evolv. The water is enhanced with Archea ActiveTM, a unique formula that is designed to increase stamina, energy, and endurance. Other benefits of the drink include helping to speed-up recovery from fatigue, help with vitamin and nutrition absorption, increases circulation, and restores mental alertness.

The Evolv drink product seems to be a decent product with a lot of potential. Bottled water is becoming increasingly popular across the world, and the added health benefits of Evolv give it a unique selling point (USP). Unfortunately it is a fact that the vast majority of EvolvHealth Distributors will still fail in their business, though. Why is this, if the product is good?

EvolvHealth Review – The Bad News

As with most network marketing companies the advice given to Distributors nearly always stresses what we call “warm marketing” techniques. This means pitching your products and your opportunity to your friends, family, and neighbors – in other words your business will be very localized. They will advise you to put up flyers and hand out business cards, to make CDs and DVDs, to offer free samples, to give presentations and demos, and to hold regular meetings.

This is good for giving a bit of a personal touch to your business, but it is never going to make you rich. How far would Bill Gates have got if he only ever sold Microsoft products to people he knew personally?

EvolvHealth Review – The Good News

The obvious fact is, everybody in the world needs to drink water. This means that anybody in the world is a potential customer for Evolv. You need to be able to sort through all these people to find the ones that can really benefit the most from your product, and will be most keen to join you in your business. People who regularly exercise, for example. People with young children. Health clubs. All these are potential clients.

Once you have established a target market you can use the internet, the telephone, and the written word to market your product. By starting a blog, for example, you can advertise to thousands of people all over the world every day for FREE. A blog post never goes away, and never starts costing you money. Once it is up it will continue to generate leads for you forever.

In no time at all you will have hundreds of people every single week contacting you, asking you about Evolv, and begging you to let them come aboard.

If you want to find out more about how the internet, the telephone, and the written word can explode your EvolvHealth business, then see the EvolvHealth Money Maker

Silk Stalkings: Season 5, Episode 3: Sweet Punishment (Complete)

When a pimp is found murdered, Chris and Rita look into two women who were in his employ. Originally broadcast on USA Network in October 1995.
Video Rating: 5 / 5

More

Silk Stalkings: Season 4, Episode 15: Mrs. Carlisle (Complete)

A teenaged boy is the prime suspect in the murder of an older woman’s abusive husband. Kim Morgan Greene, no stranger to “Silk Stalkings” and who played Chris’ sometime-girlfriend, Melissa Cassidy in Seasons 1 and 2, returns in the different role of Mrs. Carlisle. Originally broadcast on USA Network in January 1995.

This is another mid 1990s show that aired on Sunday nights on USA Network along with “Silk Stalkings” and “The Big Easy”. Starring Rick Rossovich (“ER”), it was about a cop unit that did their work on bicycles. In other words, it was uber cheesy, but that is what made it fun and gave USA Network (pre-NBC buyout) its identity, mastering in said cheese! (And we have established that I enjoy cheese. As long as it is entertaining!) The series also features Jim Davidson, Marcos Ferraez, Darlene Vogel, Paula Trickey, and David L. Landers. Originally broadcast on USA Network in March 1996.

Silk Stalkings: Season 2, Episode 2: Good Time Charlie (Complete)

A serial rapist (Patrick Muldoon, Austin Reed #1, Days of Our Lives) returns to seek revenge on Chris through the women closest to him due to Chris sending him to prison before. Originally broadcast on both CBS’ “Crimetime After Primetime” and USA Network in September 1992. On a side note, this was omitted from the Anchor Bay Season 2 box set, as was the first episode of Season 2, “Baser Instinct”. On the original Anchor Bay Season 1 DVD release, the last two episodes are actually, inexplicably, the first two episodes of Season 2. The re-release of Season 1 through Mill Creek ends with Episode 20, “Powder Burn”, as it should.

Silk Stalkings: Season 3 Finale, Episode 23: Dark Heart (Complete)

Meanwhile, Chris is the object of an anonymous woman’s affections…with tragic results. Also features Crystal Chappell (“Days of Our Lives”); she would also return to Silk Stalkings in the Tom/Cassy years as another character in “Pirates of Palm Beach”, Season 7. Originally broadcast on USA Network in March 1994.
Video Rating: 5 / 5

Chris is wounded when he’s set up for a hit man, and he and Rita reluctantly accept help from a local television reporter in tracking down a corrupt judge and his high-powered father-in-law-to-be who tried to cover up one of the judge’s earlier indiscretions. Originally broadcast on CBS’ “Crimetime After Primetime” and USA Network in March 1993.

Silk Stalkings: Season 1, Episode 14: The Sock Drawer (Complete)

Chris and Rita find themselves embroiled in a “hot grounder” case when a phone call about a shooting in a park leads them to witness the police commander shooting a man. Making matters even murkier, besides the dirty commander, is the equally dirty District Attorney, Roy Conroy, played with smarmy zeal by the late series creator, Stephen J. Cannell, who has a fairly-prominent role in the episode. The sordid details of the police commander’s wife’s (Patsy Pease, “Days of Our Lives”) extracurricular activities gives Rita and Chris another piece of the puzzle. This was originally broadcast on both CBS’ “Crimetime After Primetime” and USA Network in February 1992.
Video Rating: 5 / 5

A young girl is a suspect of the stabbing death of her stepfather, who sexually abused her. Marta DuBois plays her mother. She also appeared as different characters in “Shock Jock” in Season 1 and “If The Shoe Fits” in Season 8. Originally broadcast on USA Network in November 1993.
