Being informed is always in style

Next to the tent and sleeping bag, a men's best friend when camping is his multi tool. This small, compact device can be conveniently carried around in your pocket and brought out for every job, large or small. In this single piece of hiking and...

How many times have you fallen asleep without previously brushing your teeth? Nearly half of all adult Australians admit they don't bother to brush their teeth before going to bed mainly because they're too tired or forget about it while checking Facebook, Instagram, and other social media accounts. By skipping the need to brush your teeth before going to bed, along with poor nutrition (consuming sugary drinks, junk food and food high in carbohydrates) you risk developing not only serious dental problems, but other serious diseases that could affect your overall health. Therefore, maintaining proper and regular oral hygiene is the key to ensuring a sparkling smile and well-being in general. This is not to be taken as oral hygiene is the solution to other issues, but failing to address is could be the trigger for many of them.

The chain saw is among the most versatile tools every man should own. It is the ideal piece of equipment for cutting large branches and fallen trees. However, owning one is just the beginning. In order to use it safely, you need to first figure...

As any Aussie already knows, our vast land of blue and green and all in between is no stranger to water issues (in rural areas, that is), despite the fact that we have plenty of rivers and lakes and are surrounded by an ocean. This is when transfer pumps come into play to save the day. The simple, yet revolutionary technology of these ingenious devices renders them the perfect tool for eradicating water scarcity issues.

When it was time to choose a nappy bag for my newborn (and myself, of course), I approached the subject with great attention as if I was preparing a graduation thesis all over again. Is a messenger bag convenient enough to carry around? Would a backpack make me look like a school girl who just gave birth? And what's the perfect number of pockets to keep all the stuff organized, anyway? - these were just some of the questions that were bugging me at the time. As you can see, finding my ideal bag for nappies and all baby-related paraphernalia was a big task for me, but I can now say that it paid off really well.

Every nation has something about their country they pride themselves on, from natural treasures to cuisine, but when it comes to Australia it's the combination of both plus diversity. We even have a day meant for the celebration of our multicultural society, called Harmony Day,...

Even the dullest and toughest chores can be done quickly and well when the right tools are at your disposal. Ask the average homeowners what their favourite DIY activities are, and chances are they won't mention sand wooding. But that doesn't come as a surprise...

Things change over time, and in most cases for the better - including residual current devices. The primary reason for these changes is improvements in safety of course, but that's not the only one. In case you've lived under a rock for the past few decades, an RCD (Residual Current Device) is a life-saving device that is designed to prevent you from getting electrocuted in case you touch a bare wire. It can also help provide extra protection against electrical fires. RCDs offer that extra layer of protection that ordinary circuit-breakers and fuses do not. RCD's constantly monitor the electric current flowing through all the circuits that they protect. If it finds electricity flowing on an unintended path, like a person who has touched a bare wire, the RCD will switch the circuit breaker off immediately, significantly reducing the risks of serious injury or death. There are a few basic types of rccb rcd available that can be used to ensure you're always as safe as possible, and they're most often used in potentially dangerous areas like gardens, bathrooms and kitchens.
