Do-It-Yourself: How To Make Canvas Print Project

There are some people who appreciate a good artwork when they see them such as canvas prints Australia but not everyone is willing to spend that much or have the luxury to splurge on one. If you really want to have one, there is another option. You can make your own! Do it yourself projects are very popular nowadays and not just for creative people. There are thousands of online tutorials you can follow to make sure you make your projects successfully.

For this particular canvas print project, you will need to have a canvas. As our goal is to wrap the photo around the canvas, the sides of the canvas should be 2 inches smaller compared to the photo. If you have a printed photo that’s 12 by 12 inches, you need to find a canvas size that’s 10 by 10 inches. The photo quality should be the primo one because it is the best and it makes a big difference to the end result. You can have it printed at a local printing shop. You will also need wood glue but get the white one, texture coating, foam roller, small paintbrush, scissors and stapler.

The first thing you will need is to pour or squeeze glue all over the canvas surface. Make sure to put in a thick coating but not go overboard or your picture will be bubbly at the end. Smooth out the glue with the help of your paintbrush. Make sure your spread the glue evenly until the edge of the canvas.

The next step is to place your photo on a flat surface or a table, make sure that it is clean. Carefully lay the canvas with the glued surface down onto the picture. Make sure to align all sides before sticking them together.

Smooth out the surface with the use of a card or squeegee and work your way out from the center to the sides to remove any air pocket. Do the same on the back side of the canvas to make sure that everything is smooth. Fold the sides of the photo and mark the leftover corners and cut them. Put glue to the edges of the canvas and fold the photo. This should be done one side at a time before securing with stapler at the back side.

Once this is done, you can make your projects look more like professional canvas prints Australia by using your foam roller and spreading texture cream all over the surface and edges of the photo. Let dry and it is ready!

Australians Believe Retirement Should Happen Only After Acquiring $1.1 Million

Based on a recent study, it was revealed that Australians think that an average amount of $1,142,000 -which can either be their investments or savings – is needed for them to be able to retire in a comfortable manner. Majority of them estimates that when the time comes for them to retire, they will only have a little over 50 per cent of the expected amount. This only goes to show that a financial advisor in Australia is necessary in order to help these people achieve their savings goal before retirement kicks in.

The survey was conducted by MLC Australian Wealth Sentiment for the first quarter of 2017. It included over 2,000 participants from different parts of Australia. It showed that more than 50 per cent of Australians think they will not be able to gather such amount before their retirement. Majority believed that they will only have about $638,000 in bank savings.

Women, on one hand, are not as optimistic as men when it comes to the topic of retirement savings. This shows by the 60 percent that believe in not having enough to retire while there are 52 per cent in men. More than 35 per cent of women think that their savings will be quite far from the average amount while only 27 per cent in men.

Only a small portion of Australians, about 5 per cent, expects that they will have more than the average amount before their retirement age.

MLC’s report shows that the present income levels are vital in determining the expectations when retirement comes. People who have the lowest incomes think that they will require as much as $679,000 in order for them to retire comfortable while high earners believe in saving as much as $1,469,000.

The reason for many Australians not having enough for them retirement lies on the fact that they want to pay their debts first before anything else. This is the top priority as revealed in the first quarter of this year. In order to pay their debts, many are not saving enough and investment is not seen as a priority. In order to rectify this situation, it is recommended that they hire a financial advisor in Australia that will help them in managing their finances and save more for their retirement.

Southeast Asia As An Attractive Investment Opportunity For Health Insurance Providers

Healthcare is one of the booming businesses in Southeast Asia because of the growing population. Southeast Asia is an attractive investment destination for private healthcare providers because of the demographics and the 620 million population. It is a fact that the most profitable private healthcare providers can be found in Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia where there is an impressive medical tourism scheme.

However, it looks like public and private healthcare providers are serving separate client segments simultaneously. It is very rare in the region to find a true partnership between the public and private healthcare providers. A partnership would have been ideal since both are working towards the same goals. They could allocate the tasks and risks to the party that is best able to handle it.

Several countries in Southeast Asia are working to fulfil the goals of the World Health Organization (WHO) towards universal health coverage (UHC). One example is Indonesia that has created a single payer UHC model in 2014 to be able to provide health insurance to its 250 population in the next 5 years. Thailand and Myanmar are also exploring nationwide solutions to improve access to healthcare even in the remote areas.

In most parts of Southeast Asia, government spending on healthcare is growing however there are still emerging economies that spend less of healthcare compared to their counterparts in the European Union. Thailand is the only country that accounts for more than 75% total healthcare funding. In Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, healthcare funding ranges from 40% to 60%.

According to a 2014 study made by the Economist Magazine, the readiness of Southeast countries to do private-public partnership varies considerably because of the differences in demographics, economic development and other factors. Meanwhile, almost all of the Southeast Asian countries have implemented PPP in sectors of economic structures like energy, transport and water.

There is a wide range of options for health insurance in Bangkok to make sure that a variety of illnesses, injuries and ailments are covered. An unbeatable combination of flexibility and convenience is offered by health insurance in Thailand to access generous levels of coverage, responsive service and guaranteed renewability.

Funeral Director Explains How The Funeral Industry Works

Asha Dooley, general manager at Grace Funerals, describes the inner workings of the funeral industry. According to her, the process of a funeral’s organization starts with one thing, regardless of whether it happens after someone’s died or before: a phone call. She says that this is when the bereaved communicate their wishes.

For most people, funeral directors in Sydney and the rest of the country fit either one of two stereotypes, the solemn, stiff-suited male mortician or the quiet,Atwoodian White Lady.

Ms. Dooley,  however, is an ex-hotelier, trained as a leader in Qatari resorts.

She describes running a funeral as akin to planning a wedding, except that, a funeral director only has three days to accomplish it.

She works for Grace Funerals, which is a small-to-medium size funeral service provider that handles ‘full service’ options, meaning that it oversees the entire funeral production process, starting from the bodily transport all the way to the end.

Grace Funerals and providers like it; independent, and family-run, used to be the norm in the Australian funeral industry. It was only until recently that that the Australian death care market became serviced by a conglomerate, specifically, InvoCare, which controls 37% of the industry in the country. According to some, InvoCare acts as a duopoly, especially in places where burial space is at a premium, such as Australia’s eastern seaboard. The shift in the market shows how the funeral industry has changed in recent times.

Ms. Dooley says that the main trend now is that Australians are more likely to go to funeral directors in Sydney for cremations, rather than burials, a sign of the now-prohibitive pricing on funeral real estate that is popping up as burial space in the country becomes more and more of a premium.

She adds that Australians now prefer more personalised and unique funerals, forgoing the traditional trappings of the ritual for more specialised options, locations and services. Some funerals even go au naturel, forgoing the option of a coffin entirely.

Lastly, she talks about how her business is, in the emotional sense. To Ms. Dooley, it isn’t taxing, but she, like many other funeral directors, acknowledge the funeral as something that can be difficult to go through. She says that one of the things that can make the funeral process difficult is the involvement of children.

The Australian Funeral Directors Association has an FAQ on dealing with grief, which states that grief is perfectly normal, varies on an individual basis, and capable of inducing physical changes. It states that grief can last from anytime between two to five years.

Ms. Dooley believes that the ritual of a funeral is an important part of grieving, as it helps people come to terms with the reality much better. She even admits to having planned for her own funeral.

She says that’d she’d prefer an outdoors funeral, with a view overlooking the water. She wants a funeral that would be nice for everyone who visits it.
