Fight the Bite: Simple Tips to Protect Your Yard from Mosquitos

Summer is finally here. As we host more get togethers outside an essential for all soirees is protection from pests, like mosquitos and ticks, which are predicted to be especially abundant and invasive this year.

Nearly two thirds of Americans are concerned about protecting themselves and their families from mosquitoes, but they also know the methods they’re using don’t work. A recent Harris Poll study found that 65% of Americans use bug spray to combat mosquitos but only half (51%) say it is effective at preventing mosquitoes from biting.

85% of Americans say that mosquitoes limit their or their family’s outdoor activities during the months they’re most active.

The CDC recommends the following tips to control mosquitos outside the home:
Remove standing water where mosquitoes could lay eggs

Empty, scrub, turn over, cover or throw out any items that hold water like tires, buckets, planters, toys, pools, birdbaths, flowerpot saucers or trash containers once a week.

Tightly cover water storage containers (buckets, cisterns and rain barrels) so mosquitoes cannot get inside to lay eggs.

Kill mosquitoes outside your home

Use an outdoor insect spray or a professional service like Mosquito Defense to kill mosquitoes in areas where they rest, including trees, shrubs, mulched areas and all types of ground cover.

Beat the summer sweat with underarm Botox

Excessive perspiration can be a major source of discomfort for everybody, and for those who are looking forward to their beautiful tropical weddings or their long-awaited job interviews, it can be downright problematic. Typical solutions such as extra strength or even prescription deodorant are often partially or totally ineffective, and patients frequently complain about the lack of other treatments, resigning themselves to lives of discomfort and sweaty laundry. One solution exists, however, that is often widely overlooked and commonly misunderstood: Botox.

Botox injections are commonly used to smooth out wrinkles caused by aging and, thus, are often written off as purely aesthetic treatments. A little known fact, however, is that Botox is often used in the treatment of hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating from the head, palms, feet or underarms. By injecting Botox into a patients affected areas, usually the underarms, the treatment temporarily and locally blocks nerves in the skin from reaching the sweat glands, allowing the patient to enjoy the Summer heat sweat free. Treatments last anywhere from six months to one year with no lasting side effects, and there are a number of aesthetic and medical spa nurses such as Nichole Starr of Skin Deep Med Spa on Newbury Street in Boston, who is available to speak with you and can provide greater information about the extensive safety testing done on the use of botulinum as well as administer the treatment to those who are looking for a safe and easy way to beat the heat.

To kick-off the summer season, Skin Deep Med Spa is launching a “Beat the Summer Sweat with Botox” promotion, where you can purchase 40 units of Botox and get 10 units free – specifically for underarm Botox. (50 units under each arm would be $1,500 total and with 20 units free, clients will save $300 for a total of $1,200 for a sweat-free summer!) Nichole Starr says this procedure lasts at least 6 months and up to a year, is pain-free (but if the client is sensitive, they are prepared with ice and topical numbing cream) and it only takes about 5 minutes! She recommends getting it done at least one week before you want it to be effective.

Our skin is the largest organ that we have and yet so many of us make almost no effort to take care of it, especially when it’s sunny out and those extra UV rays are reaching our skin and causing damage.

It’s important that we care for our skin all year around, but because there is generally less cloud cover in the summer, more UV rays reach the surface and we wear less clothes, reducing our protection against the sun.

‘Trendy’ Birmingham student has IKEA covered

A final year textile student in Birmingham has had his design brought to life thanks to a blossoming partnership between Birmingham City University and IKEA.

The University approached the Swedish furniture giant earlier this year as part of its annual Trends Project, and IKEA donated a POÄNG chair for Textile Design students to create an original cover.

Having impressed University academics and IKEA’s design team, a design by undergraduate Nader Nazari has been used to decorate the iconic POÄNG chair, and is proudly on display in IKEA’s Birmingham Central store

Dawn Lloyd, Unit Manager at IKEA Birmingham Central said:

“Since opening our Order and Collection Point in Birmingham city centre last August, the team here have been keen to build relationships with the local community and truly act as a good neighbour. We are very pleased to forge a partnership with Birmingham City University and its students.

“Nader is the first student we have had the pleasure to work with and we are incredibly humbled by the level of workmanship he has displayed in this project, designing a wonderful textiles solution for one of IKEA’s iconic and much-loved products – the POÄNG chair.

“We wish Nader the very best of luck with his career and look forward to being inspired working with future students.”

Born and raised in Afghanistan before moving to Birmingham in 2008, Nader’s design for the POÄNG chair takes inspiration from his passion for the natural word, coupled with the theme of this year’s Trends Project, ‘GRACE’.

The Trends Project is an annual collaboration between Birmingham City University’s Textile Design students and manufacturers, focused on showcasing the future in design trends at industry shows, and in 2017 explored the serene and luxurious.

The theme of the ‘GRACE’ trend aims to redefine our approach to craft through the sophisticated use of material and colour. ‘GRACE’ embraces the extraordinary heritage of traditional craft and redefines how we think of them.

The partnership with IKEA has been made possible through the University’s Business Engagement team, which provides industry access to work-ready students and graduates

Ruth Edwards, Business Engagement Manager for the Faculty of Arts, Design and Media (ADM) at Birmingham City University, said:

“Challenging our students, staff and partners to come up with brand new concepts which are fresh, engaging and new, generates some truly innovative content. It’s this innovation which drives us and our partners to push the boundaries and is one of the most motivating elements of this showcase.

“Nader’s design for IKEA is also a great example of how industry partnerships can be developed to their full potential, providing the best outcome for the student, partner and university.”

Created by Japanese designer Noboru Nakamura in 1977, the POÄNG is available to buy as both an armchair or a rocking-chair.

Why Not Garden Gather this summer?

As a passionate gardener, I spend as much time in the fresh air as possible, and love to entertain outdoors in Ireland during the summer.

That’s why I’m delighted to support Garden Gathering, a new feel good fundraiser for Parkinson’s UK, urging people across the country to get together with loved ones, bringing a fun, festival vibe to their gardens.

No matter how big or small your garden, I’m encouraging everyone to plan a Garden Gathering on Saturday July 1, or you can just pick your own date, it’s up to you.

Your Garden Gathering event can be as creative as you like, and Parkinson’s UK has created a special fundraising pack full of tips and goodies, including festival wristbands, a teepee donation box, and a festival themed fundraising game, to help you get in the mood for fun.

All money raised from Garden Gathering will help Parkinson’s UK to support the 127,000 people living with Parkinson’s in the UK, as well as funding urgently needed treatments that can slow, stop or even prevent the condition.

Football hooligans wreak havoc on British transport with arrests rising for the fourth year running

 22% of all football-arrests are made by the British Transport Police (BTP)  60% of arrests are due to public disorder  40% of these arrests are made during Premier League matches.  There was an increase of 36 incidents of ‘violent disorder’ last year.  For the 2015-2016 season, West Ham had the most reported incidents of all Premier League clubs at 10%

From 2015-16, crime on the railway increased for the first time in 10 years, by 4%, the equivalent of 2,030 offences. The British Transport Police (BTP) has also seen a consistent rise in footballrelated incidents since 2012. Football ticket sales site,, has considered the issue of hooliganism on British Rails by analysing data from the Home Office and a Freedom of Information request, released by the BTP, about football-related arrests in 2016. The BTP, who police more than 8.6 million passenger journeys a day, have specified that “unfortunately, on football match days, law-abiding members of the public and rail staff are subjected to abusive, obscene and sometimes racially offensive chanting, as well as displays of violent behaviour.” The Home Office report indicates that the overall number of general football-related arrests over the last five football seasons has decreased. However, football-related arrests made by the British Transport Police has risen for the fourth year running. The three most common football-related offences are public disorder (60%), alcohol offences (20%) and violent disorder (16%). Among all football-related arrests during the 2015-16 season, more than 2 in 10 (22%) arrests were made by the British Transport Police. During Premier League matches this figure increases further for public disorder arrests, 33% of which are made by the BTP. According to a 2015-16 Freedom of Information request, released by the BTP, one of the reported offences included “4-500 fans who boarded a special train service. While at platform the doors of the train were forced open and coins thrown at rival fans. Due to the difficulty closing doors, the train lost power, causing one cancellation and delays to 15 trains. [A] train window was later found to have been smashed.” Incidents like the one mentioned demonstrate the destructive nature of football hooliganism on our railways, with one BTP report from 2013 stating a single incident had cost over £3000 in damages. Furthermore, when searching for key words within the reports, many included words such as ‘sexual’, ‘sexist’ and ‘racist’, further highlighting the vitriolic nature of many acts of hooliganism. One report highlighted the issue of sexism, stating that a “female informant reported a group of 10 males [who] were wolf whistling, lifting female’s skirts and grabbing the backsides of female passengers as they walked by.”

Analysis by, which looked at the reported incidents during the 2015-16 football season, found there were 233 incidents where a premier league football team was mentioned as the club the offender supported. It was revealed that West Ham was the worst culprit, with their fans comprising 10% of the total. Second place was tied between Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea- each making up 9% of total reported incidents. And at the bottom of the list was Middlesbrough, where fans made up only 1% of total reported incidents on British transport. On this matter, the British Transport Police stated the following, “We adopt a proactive approach to football policing, with officers escorting trains before and after matches and patrolling stations where large numbers of fans are expected.” The BTP added that “fixed penalty notices are not used for football-related offences, making sure that offenders are charged with the most serious offences their conduct warrants.”

Trump revealed as Children’s Word of the Year by OUP for BBC Radio 2’s 500 Words – but ‘silage’ is the top word in Northern Ireland

Donald Trump, elections and Pokémon GO are some of the subjects influencing British children’s creativity and use of language, says a report published today by Oxford University Press (OUP) – and in Northern Ireland the top word youngsters are using is ‘silage’.

Following OUP’s analysis of the short stories for the 2017 BBC Radio 2 Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show’s 500 Words competition, a wealth of fascinating insights into the lives of British children and their imaginative use of English have emerged.

The Children’s Word of the Year is Trump, picked because of its significant increase in use (a total rise of 839 per cent on 2016) by entrants writing in this year’s competition and the sophisticated way in which children used it to convey humour and satire.

In Northern Ireland, the Top 5 words which are used more in the stories of this region than in any other are…

A crowdfunding campaign has launched with the aim to raise funds to bring the world’s first floating hot tub to central London. Set to launch this summer, and utilising some of London’s most scenic canal areas, the HotTug will be an experience like no other, for all ages.

The HotTug is a 3.8m x 2m wood fired floating hot tub, heated at an invigorating 38C of fresh water which ‘HotTuggers’ can operate by themselves.

Tommo, cofounder of HotTug UK said “I first set eyes on The HotTug in 2012 and knew that it was something that Londoners would love. The inner pirate in me is so excited to be launching a new business on a boat and I cannot wait to bring this incredible experience to my home city.”

The boys eventual aim is to bring The HotTug to sites across the UK & Ireland to unearth a completely new viewpoint of a city.

The crowdfunding campaign on Crowdfunder ( offers the opportunity for people to be the first to experience The HotTug at an exclusive discounted price of £140. The campaign launched on June 6th and will run for 5 weeks with the aim to raise £10,000. Londoners have gone wild for the campaign, which is already over 50% funded within the first week.

This unique and truly different experience is guaranteed to be one of the hottest tickets to get hold of in town. So don’t miss the boat on this truly oarsome adventure!

70 per cent of Brits are concerned about losing cash while abroad

While Brits are expected to take around £250 of cash on holiday this summer , 70 per cent admit that they’re worried about pickpockets and hotel room thefts.

A survey by Escape Travel Card revealed that almost 60 per cent of Brits take converted currency in cash while travelling abroad to avoid bank charges when spending on their card or withdrawing cash. However, a whopping 70 per cent expressed concerns over holiday cash being stolen from their purse or accommodation.

Around a third of Brits have had their belongings stolen while on holiday , yet Sterling’s fall in value means that keeping cash safe is more important than ever.

Escape Travel Card’s Joanne Briggs commented: “Keeping hard-earned money safe when we’re on holiday is vital, especially when we’ve spent months saving. Our research shows that while Brits are conscious of the dangers of carrying cash abroad, they are often not aware of alternative options.

“Prepaid travel cards are a safer, more cost effective way of handling spending money while overseas. Additionally, using a prepaid travel card means travellers can avoid carrying around large sums of cash, making them much less vulnerable to loss or theft.

“The Escape Travel Card is simple to use and free to make purchases abroad. It’s also easy to top up your card with an Escape online account, which also enables users to view their balance and statements, just as you would with a debit card. As the holiday season approaches, it would certainly be a good idea to keep prepaid travel cards on your radar if you’re planning a trip abroad.”

For added peace of mind, the Escape Travel Card is not linked to your bank account information. It’s also ideal for holidaymakers as it has the ability to be temporarily locked and unlocked, so there’s no need to feel uneasy about leaving your bag unattended when going for a dip in the pool.

Ian Woosnam OBE confirmed for Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship 2017

One of the country’s biggest golfing events, the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship is delighted to confirm that British golfing legend Ian Woosnam OBE will be returning to Nailcote Hall for the 84th edition of the prestigious event.
With more than 50 professional titles to his name worldwide and a famous Masters Tournament Green Jacket in his wardrobe, Ian Woosnam is quite simply one of the most successful European golfers of all time. The Welsh golfer will be joining up with his former Ryder Cup skipper and Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship host Tony Jacklin CBE at the Warwickshire-based course on 8-11 August 2017.
‘Woosie’ will always be remembered for his victory at Augusta National at the 1991 Masters. Starting the last hole of the tournament tied with José María Olazábal and Tom Watson on -11 Woosnam managed a solid par, while the other two players bogeyed and double bogeyed respectively to ensure the Welshman was the one wearing the Green Jacket come the close of play. The victory came at a time when Woosnam surged to the top of the world rankings earlier that season, a position he enjoyed for a total of 50 weeks.
Woosnam said: “I can’t wait to return to the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship, it’s one of my favourite events, I love making the trip to Nailcote Hall every year.
“It looks like it’ll be another strong field of competitors, but I hope I’ll be able to make my mark on the competition.”
Woosnam’s former Ryder Cup Captain and Championship host Tony Jacklin is pleased to see the Welshman back once again: “Woosie is a true legend of the game, he is in the World Golf Hall of Fame and rightly so, we love having him at the Championship as he is a real character and the crowds love to watch him in action.”
Rick Cressman, owner of Nailcote Hall, added: “Nailcote Hall are delighted to be welcoming back a highly-decorated field of pros, including Ian who is one of the biggest stars of the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship.”

Since turning professional in 1976, Woosnam has been successful in every decade of his 40-year career and is still at the top of his game today. In his first season on the Senior Tour, Woosnam made history by becoming the only player to win both the European Tour Order of Merit and the European Senior Tour Order of Merit in his career. Another highlight was Woosnam’s captaincy of the 2006 European Ryder Cup team to victory over their American counterparts, winning 18.5-9.5 points at the K Club, Ireland.
The Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship is managed and promoted by leading brand agency Champions (UK) plc. Champions Managing Director Matthew Hayes commented: “We have been managing and delivering the event for a number of years, and Ian Woosnam returning to this year’s event reflects the ongoing strength of the Farmfoods British Par 3 Championship.

· Fiat Professional has once again pitted football against rugby in the Fiat Professional 4×4 Challenge, to determine which sport has the best driving skills.

· Danny Mills (England), Jackie McNamara (Scotland), Lee Byrne (Wales) and Geordan Murphy (Ireland) compete for the sporting bragging rights

London, 08th June 2017: Fiat Professional has given Lee Byrne and Geordan Murphy the chance to redeem rugby’s pride in part two of the Fiat Fullback Challenge – The Fiat Professional 4×4 Challenge. Once again famous fullback’s Danny Mills (England) and Jackie McNamara (Scotland) made up Team Football, while ex-Lions fullbacks Geordan Murphy (Ireland) and Lee Byrne (Wales) represented Team Rugby and put the new Fiat Fullback to the test.

The task for each of the players was to complete a lap of the specially-designed 4×4 course, with their other team member reaching out of the window to touch two flags laid out around the track. Each team would then swap drivers, and touch the remaining two flags; the team who completed the course with the best driving technique, ability, skill and control would be crowned the winner, as judged by a professional driving instructor.

Whilst Team Football certainly appeared to make their way around the course fastest, the superior driving technique and lack of fouls for missing flags by Team Rugby meant they walked away victorious as the Fiat Professional 4×4 Challenge champions.

Commenting on the challenge, the victorious former Welsh and British & Irish Lions Fullback Lee Byrne said: “We were pretty chuffed to beat the football boys in the 4×4 driving challenge. It was a really enjoyable test of driving skills – though they may have been quicker around the course, particularly Danny who drove like a maniac, I’m glad the judges recognised our superior technique.”

Former Celtic and Scotland defender Jackie McNamara commented: “We’re obviously disappointed to have lost out today after our earlier victory in the Fullback Challenge. Whilst the challenge was great fun and very different to a usual day at work, maybe going full throttle round the course wasn’t the best idea!”

With the new Fullback, Fiat Professional has entered the buoyant medium-duty pick up segment which accounts for 650,000 vehicles a year in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region. Engineered to meet the broad needs of business users – both professional and recreational – the new Fiat Professional Fullback offers high levels of flexibility and dependability. The front of the Fullback adopts the upmarket appearance of a sports SUV while distinctive swage lines along the flanks tie the front of the pick-up to the rear, integrating the load bed as part of the vehicle’s overall design. Prices start at £21,095 (excluding VAT, VED, delivery and plates) for the 2.4 Diesel 150HP Double Cab 6 Spd Manual SX (MY16).

The all-new Fiat Fullback is available from all Fiat and Fiat Professional dealerships in the UK. For more information or to find your nearest dealership, visit

Ex-England Rugby Star Makes Surprise Appearance at Local Youth Match

An ex-England rugby star made a local youth team’s day by making a special guest appearance at their home ground in Merseyside.

Former rugby union champion and ‘Dancing on Ice’ winner, Kyran Bracken, took a trip back to his first ever team, Firwood Waterloo FC, to surprise players and spectators on the sidelines.

Bracken, who captained the England squad on three separate occasions, teamed up with reliable heating manufacturer Worcester, Bosch Group to make the memorable day possible.

As well as joining the young aspiring players on the pitch for a pep talk and coaching session, the sporting legend had an extra treat for parents, as he helped keep them warm on the sidelines with hot drinks, bacon sandwiches and blankets as they watched their children play.

After the final whistle blew, talented young players were awarded signed rugby balls, as Bracken selected some of the stand-out players from each age group. A final surprise was in store for the team, as he presented a £1,000 cheque to the club, on behalf of the heating and hot water manufacturer.

Kyran Bracken commented: “Firwood Waterloo FC is where it all started for me so it was a real honour to be able to return to my roots and surprise the players and parents. As well as seeing some fantastic rugby, it was great to be able to give something back to the parents and coaches who give up their weekends, come rain or shine, to encourage their children’s love of sport.

“I spotted some potential stars of the future and look forward to seeing the club continue to nurture young talent for many years to come.”

Sue Pennington, consumer brand manager at Worcester, Bosch Group, commented: “It was a fantastic experience teaming up with Kyran Bracken to surprise his youth team and make the day really special for everyone involved. He was a great sport and we’re thrilled he was able to help us show parents and supporters that they can rely on Worcester to keep them warm, and enjoy watching their young players in comfort.”

Worcester is on the look-out for more deserving junior clubs to visit when the season kicks off again in September. To nominate a worthy team to receive a special treat on the sidelines, visit before Sunday 30th July, stating why they deserve a surprise visit from the Worcester team.

(From L – R: Kate Richardson-Walsh OBE, England Women’s Hockey Captain; Eleanor Garnier; BBC Political Correspondent and ex-England lacrosse player; Charlotte Edwards CBE, Former Captain of the Women’s England Cricket team; and Gill Burns MBE, former captain of Women’s England Rugby team)

With little over a month until the UK’s largest elite women’s sporting event this year, the FIL Rathbones Women’s Lacrosse World Cup, Rathbone Investment Management hosted three world title winning British sportswomen and Eleanor Garnier, BBC Political Correspondent and ex-England lacrosse player, for a celebration of women in sport.

Rathbone Investment Management was joined by Kate Richardson-Walsh OBE, England Women’s Hockey Captain, Team GB Hockey Captain and Olympic Gold Medallist; Charlotte Edwards CBE, Former Captain of the Women’s England Cricket team; and Gill Burns MBE, former captain of Women’s England Rugby team and winner of the Women’s Rugby World Cup 1994.

The sporting icons met with the captains of the home nation lacrosse teams earlier in the afternoon, to share their experiences and answer questions from the captains who are putting together their final preparations before the World Cup. This was followed by a drinks reception and open Q&A session, where the three ambassadors offered their insight on what it takes to excel in sport as both a player and a leader, their views on the sports industry and how to further increase participation of women in sport. Attending the evening were representatives from Sport England, Women in Sport, Women’s Sport Trust and other key organisations focussed on the issues challenging women in sport.

Laura Coleman, Partnerships Manager, Rathbone Investment Management commenting on the evening said: “It was a real pleasure to host an evening celebrating women in sport and hearing the stories of some of the most inspirational women in UK sport. Participation in sport provides not just health benefits, but also supports the development of crucial qualities, such as team work, resilience and determination. Skills that are not only beneficial in sport, but all areas of life.

“Rathbones has been a sponsor of lacrosse in the UK for over five years. During this time we have seen the sport go from strength to strength and we are proud to have been a part of that journey. The countdown is now on to the FIL Rathbones Lacrosse World Cup which will be a wonderful opportunity to highlight women’s sport. We will be fully behind the home nations taking part and wish all those competing the best of luck.”

New Video: Designing the Perfect Rugby Stadium

Rugby legends discuss the rugby stadium of the future with HOK

LONDON—HOK, a leading sports architecture firm, gathered four world-class rugby players to discuss what they would like to see in rugby stadiums of the future. John Rhodes, a director of HOK’s Sports + Recreation + Entertainment practice, met with Jamie Roberts (Wales), Tim Visser (Scotland), James Horwill (Australia) and Danny Care (England) to capture their ideas, both as players and fans.

From the impact of fans on the game itself, to the frustrations of rival changing rooms, the players offered key insights while Rhodes shared innovative design solutions, including fibre-optic turf and glass roof seating, that could soon be commonplace in stadia. HOK has just released the conversation and findings in a new video that includes images of the rugby stadium of tomorrow.

“Any modern, iconic sports ground must provide an exceptional experience for fans,” said Rhodes. “The unique passion of fans is fundamental to the sport and, as architects, we need to design stadiums that maximize this energy. Rugby fans are especially unique. They are sophisticated fans who know and have experienced a variety of venues, which elevates the standards for a rugby stadium.”

Rhodes’ project experience spans venues, F1 circuits, race tracks, high-performance training facilities and conference and exhibition centres including Silverstone, the Dubai World Expo and a confidential arena in the Middle East. He is currently leading the design of the New Palau Blaugrana arena for FC Barcelona.

“The players gave us exceptional insight into what affects elite athletes,” added Rhodes. “As avid fans, they also provided an invaluable perspective. This has improved our understanding of how to design the best stadiums for both rugby fans and players.”

“Having played at most of the iconic rugby grounds around the world, it was great to speak with HOK about what made each special—or especially challenging,” said Jamie Roberts, Wales and British & Irish Lions player, “What motivates you at your home ground is different from what inspires you when you play away. However, I don’t just play rugby. I’m an avid spectator and the considerations for the fan experience are equally important. Some of the ideas we discussed would transform the game-day experience. I look forward to seeing how our conversation impacts where I play or spectate in the future.”

HOK’s Sports + Recreation + Entertainment practice has expertise in the design of stadiums, arenas, ballparks, training facilities and recreation centres. The group plans and designs world-class sports complexes that are the centrepieces of successful, vibrant entertainment districts. Current and recent projects include FC Barcelona’s New Palau Blaugrana in Barcelona, Spain; the Dubai World Expo 2020 bid and concept masterplan; Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia; Avaya Stadium in San Jose, California; Rogers Place and the ICE District in Edmonton, Alberta; the Detroit Events Center in Detroit, Michigan; a proposed NBA and NHL arena in Seattle, Washington; the AT&T Center renovation in San Antonio, Texas; the renovation of Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida; and Shell Place in Fort McMurray, Alberta.

HOK is a global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm. Through a network of 23 offices worldwide, HOK provides design excellence and innovation to create places that enrich people’s lives and help clients succeed. DesignIntelligence consistently ranks HOK as a leader in s​​sustainable, high-performance design and technology innovation.

Try Before You Buy with Brand-New Sports Supplement Sample Bundle

-Nutrition X launches new ‘Ultimate Samples Bundle’ to help athletes find the right supplements for them-

Finding the right nutritional supplements can be a challenge, particularly when most are only available to purchase in large quantities with no opportunity to ‘try before you buy’. To counteract this, sports nutrition specialist Nutrition X has come to the rescue with the launch of a brand new Ultimate Samples Bundle – a small-in-size supplement collection containing a pint-sized selection of their most popular energy and recovery products; enabling athletes and gym-goers to test what works for them before committing to buying the full-sized box versions.

Usually available in boxes of 12 or 24, the Ultimate Samples Bundle contains two samples each of four different supplements, scientifically-developed to boost energy, performance and encourage muscle recovery. Each supplement comes in a handy small size which fits easily into gym bags, pockets and panniers; perfect for on-the-go nutrition pre, post or mid-workout.

Importantly, each of the sample supplements included in the bundle are batch-tested and Informed Sport accredited, enabling athletes to be safe in the knowledge that each has been rigorously tested for a wide variety of substances listed on the World Anti-Doping Agency banned substance list.

Priced at £19.99, supplements included in the Ultimate Samples Bundle are as follows:

Xplode Shot (2 x 60ml)

The perfect ‘pick-me-up’ shot to give you that much needed boost of energy when you need it most.

A unique blend of whey protein isolate and hydrolysed collagen protein, this handy post-workout shot is scientifically formulated to provide your body with the amino acids required to aid muscle and joint health.

The perfect fatigue-fighter when things get tough, this fast-acting carbohydrate gel offers a quick ‘rush’ of carbohydrate to boost energy and stimulate alertness.

Quality Assurance – Does Your Timber Floor Pass?

One of the most important and probably not highly enough valued timber flooring issues is quality assurance. Normally this only comes into play after a timber floor is laid and there is a problem with it. At this stage it’s too late to easily fix and it becomes a costly experience to rectify, in turn this often leads to major issues for all the parties involved.
For many years we have witnessed products land in Australia that are sold without any regulatory control, only to fail in the home or commercial space.
Product failure causes much angst and often results in drawn out court cases or even more likely the company going broke with no recompense for the consumer. This effect snowballs into family issues with budget blow-outs and stress as recognised factors.
Another issue to keep in mind is often, these non-conforming products have additional unsafe qualities, for example they are high in dangerous toxins, formaldehydes or poor manufacturing procedures that create dangerous circumstances.
However, there is a way to avoid this. The ATFA offers a robust compliance program that assesses products, materials and equipment to ensure they comply with standards, industry requirements and consumer expectations. The program ultimately protects everyone involved!
The intent in the future is for the industry and government to climb on board and recognise this system hence giving consumers peace of mind whilst protecting the industry with less product failures to deal with.
Notably this system is designed to complement the Federal Government Building Ministers Forum for non-complying building products. Under the ATFA program, producers will be required to provide independent certification and/or reports that substantiate and support the validity of the producers claimed compliance and where relevant meet the minimum requirements set by the ATFA and the industry.
So, before buying or installing any timber flooring product please ensure it has passed the ATFA quality assurance assessment to ensure the safety or your company, family and future.

All products with the ATFA compliant logo will have passed the compliance program and should be safe to use and install.
For more information, to become a member or if you require any advice please call the ATFA on 1300 361693 or visit
