An Artist in our Midst

Goran Tmusic
We didnt have to look far when we were deciding on a local artist to interview for this edition. When we approached Goran Tmusic, who happened to be working on the newspaper team at the time, he seemed very puzzled and questioned as to why we would like to write about him? Who wants to hear about me? he asked! Read on and youll find what we found so engaging! At the age of 24 and after completing a degree at the prestigious Academy of Art in Belgrade, Goran went on to Florence to complete a post graduate course. On coming to Australia in 1992, he was employed by the Serbian Orthodox Church in Alexandria for two years where he painted the entire interior of the church from the ceiling to the walls. A massive job that we found absolutely breathtaking when we visited to take photos. From 1999 to 2004 Goran worked on private residential buildings and various projects in Singapore, Indonesia and Hong Kong. T r a v e l l i n g b a c k a n d f o r t h f r o m S y d n e y. Gorans abilities are not limited to painting and drawing. He has utilized his abilities in commercial and commissioned projects such He is presently working on a series of paintings and plans to hold an exhibition in the near future. Goran would also like to pass on his skills to future generations in his specific areas of talents by starting his own school of arts and/or private mentoring.

The Reality of

Carbon Tax

ment. Australian economy has been supported by affordable power from profusion of coal and an absence of global agreement will remove this advantage. If businesses continue to emit carbon dioxide, they would be imposed with a carbon tax. However if they decide to adopt alternatives, they most likely will have to invest in new products, services and operations that are dependent on these alternatives. For some businesses it may be cheaper to pay high carbon tax than considering the alternative which is making huge capital investment and/or cutting jobs. Benefits of Carbon Tax It encourages businesses and consumers to develop more efficient and cleaner alternatives to carbon emissions. Impact on Household Costs Documents released by the Australian treasury reveled that under a $30 per ton carbon tax would cost an average Australian household $860 a year or $16 per week. The majority of increase would come through increased petrol prices ($ 187), gas ($ 114), electricity ($218) and food ($88). However, the families in the lowest income bracket would see a net decrease in average annual costs leading to a claim that it will revenue neutral. Impact on Companies Carbon Tax will have a major impact on the Australian exports considering the fact that they would have to compete with other global exporters with no carbon tax imposed upon them. This would impact the Australian job market. Hence, to reduce global emission in the most economical manner, one would need a global agreeEncourages more people to cycle or walk to work which would have health benefits such as lower risk of heart diseases. More possibilities to generate electricity from greener sources (Solar, Wind) and rely less on limited supplies of oil and coal whuch leads to a socially efficient outcome by making people pay the cost for the environment. Problems of Carbon Tax It is uncertain that carbon emissions will decline if the expenditure of goods and services that produce these emissions remain impassive to price increases. It is difficult to implement the exact level of tax and costs to produce the best outcome. Possibilities of tax evasion by firms emitting the carbon emissions and higher cost of administrating these taxes.

What is a Carbon Tax? Carbon tax is the tax imposed on the emissions of greenhouse gases that are contents of the fuel (Petroleum, Coal and Natural gas). Carbon atoms present in fossil fuels are released when they are burnt. Carbon tax is designed to limit these gases that cause global warming. Under the carbon tax scheme the companies would have to purchase every ton of pollution emitted into the atmosphere. Moreover if the companies do not use all their permits, they can sell them under cap and trade scheme for profits. Economic Impact of Carbon Tax Carbon pricing is a hotly debated issue and often considered as the main solution to prevent global warming. Economically pollution is considered as a negative externality a negative effect on the society resulting in a market failure. Some skeptics believe that putting a price on carbon emission will jeopardize the economy.

Consumers will dislike the new taxes and other indirect costs imposed upon them and often disagree with the Revenue Neutral theory. Companies/ Exporters may shift their production overseas where there is less or no carbon tax to compete with global market resulting in job loss.

Public support for various initiatives reveals a preference for policies that hide costs, such as tax breaks or emissions caps, over policies that have transparent costs like a Carbon Tax. In the end, policies with hidden costs are likely to cost the public more money through higher product prices, higher overall taxes, or decreases in other public services like education and health care. In order to truly evaluate public opinion on how to address the issue of global warming and carbon tax policies, the public needs to be better informed about the true costs of the options.

Protect yourself

Internet Security
the users personal computer. Trojan A Trojan is a program that may appear to be legitimate, but in fact does something malicious. Trojans are often used to gain backdoor access, that is to say remote, surreptitious access to a users system. Trojans do not replicate as viruses do, nor make copies of themselves as worms do. These are sometimes referred to as a Remote Access Trojans or RATS. Anti-Malwares In order to fight against malwares, people develop another type of software that detects and removes malware. It is called ant-malware. There are many anti-malware products out there, some of them charges for subscription licence, but there are also free anti-malwares available for downloads. These anti-malwares employ various methods and techniques in virus and malware detection, which most can be classified in two categories: database matchup and behaviour recognition. Many of the anti-malwares uses both methods in conjunction to maximize the range of detecting viruses and malwares. Database Matching The database matchup method requires your computer to keep a list of digital fingerprints of the known malware on your local drive. Those digital fingerprints uniquely identifies different viruses and malwares. Those anti-malwares scam suspicious files and matches the traces against the list and will raise an alert upon detection. Since the detection relies on the database of virus fingerprints, it is essential to keep the database updated, because new viruses and malwares are being released every day. The most common way to update is connecting to the server of the ant-malware manufacturer and downloading their patches. The downside of this detection method is that the updates for new viruses always come out after a victim reports to the anti-malware manufacturer, during which time they are continuing to spread via the internet. Behaviour recognition The behaviour recognition method works differently. It monitors the critical areas of yourcomputer system and what each program is trying to access. It then analyses the patterns and distinguishes those programs that behaves differently to normal applications, such as modifying the registry or replicating password information. However while offering higher level of protection than database matching methods, there is a higher risk for behaviour recognition to raise a false alarm. It depends on the settings and user definitions on abnormal program activities to detect malwares, so it may sometimes be a hassle to set exceptions for all safe applications behaving suspiciously. Response to Detection Once an alert is raised, there aredifferent options for the user to choose how to respond to it. The most common response is quarantine or delete. Quarantine puts the file in a reserved space set by the anti-malware program and can be recovered later if you find that it is a alarm. By deleting the infected files, the virus or malware can be removed from your computer, but itll risk damaging the files which are needed for other programs to work or even the operating systems. Therefore considerations should be made before removing the detected viruses and malwares. Protect Yourself. Despite some viruses and malwares can be successfully removed after infection, most of them are very difficult to clean completely. The best protection for your computer system is always not to get infected . Here are some tips that will help you stay safe. Install and update ant-malware. Choose a security product according to your needs and keep it updated, but beware of some malwares in disguise and pretend to be antmalware Do not open files from unknown source Not only malwares can appear to be a normal file, they can sometimes attach themselves to other files to get executed Keep personal credentials safe The safest place to keep your passwords is in your head. Log in through official websites of the services you signed up for. General caution when using internet. This is basically it. We hope that everybody can have an enjoyable internet experience.

The Internet has become an integral part of our everyday life. Despite its many of the internet users have only a slight idea about the threats associated with internet usage,and how they can protect themselves from those dangers. This article gives a brief introduction to the basic concepts of everyday internet security. Malwares Almost all of the hostile encounters of average internet users can be linked to malwares. Malware is short for malicious software, ie programs designed to harm your computer computer system or steal your information. There are a few types of commonly seen malwares. Virus Computer viruses are small software programs that are designed to spread from one computer to another and to interfere with computer operation. A virus might corrupt or delete data on your computer, use your e-mail program to spread itself to other computers, or even erase everything on your hard disk. Adware & Spyware Adware or advertising supported software, is any software package which automatically plays, displays or downloads advertisements to a computer. These advertisements can be in the form of a pop up. The object of the adware is to generate revenue for its author. Adware by itself is harmless: however some adware may come with integrated spyware such as key loggers and other privacy invasive software. Spyware is a type of malware that can be installed on computers and which collects small pieces of information about users without their knowledge. The presence of spyware is typically hidden from the user and can be difficult to detect. Typically spyware is secretly installed on

Erno Rubik was born in Budapest, Hungary in 13 July 1944. Erno Rubik was an Interior Designer and an Architect in Budapest and in 1974 he became the creator of the Rubiks Cube, which is a three dimensional puzzle that became a Worldwide sensation in the early 1980s.

These Twisty Puzzles come in different shapes Octahedron Dodecahedron (Skewb Diamond) (Megaminx)

Icosahedrons (Dogic)

Rubiks Cube Facts With over 350 million Rubiks Cubes sold worldwide, if all the Cubes were placed on top of each other they would reach the top of Mount Everest a staggering 1,937 times! There are also official records for solving the Cube one-handed (currently held by Swedens Gunnar Krig in 13:80 seconds), blindfolded (Haiyan Zhuang of China in 35:96 seconds) and with the feet (Anssi Vanhala of Finland in 36.72 seconds). The current World Rubiks Speedcubing Champion is teenager Breandan Vallance from Scotland with an average solving time of 10.74 seconds. Erno Rubiks Quotes For me, it was never about speed, it was about looking at a problem and finding the solution. So I can solve it, but not very fast. The Cube is part of me because I designed it, I created it. Its my child, if you like. But its not a newborn. When you have children you spend a lot of time with them when theyre young, nurturing them. But when they grow up they develop a life of their own and you dont need to be with them all the time anymore. The Cube is like that. The benefits from playing Rubiks cube are: Improves hand, brain and Eye coordination Twisting the layers and the columns and combining each of the six faces to connect the six set of colours in their respective place. Keeps the mind sharp in old age - Thinking games such as puzzles are games that are more likely to prevent dementia. Increases concentration When the brain is stimulated through playing the Rubiks Cube we exercise our thinking and analytical skills which keeps the mind in focus. The Challenge When the Rubiks Cube challenge is conquered the person feels a sense of accomplishment and self worth. By Alex D

Making a first impression
Why first impressions count? Keeping eye contact with a person is crucial and shows that you are focused and it shows you are giving the person the attention that they expect from you. This not only elevates a persons respect for you but also makes them feel that you are listening to them. A first impression can be beneficial in certain situations; most common examples used on the subject are job interv i e w s . Yo u c a n h a v e a d e g r e e i n r o c k e t science, or an honours in physics but if you walk into a job interview wearing a singlet and thongs you wont go very far can almost guarantee that! Personal hygiene cannot be over Lets say youre shopping at a chocolooked. If you have forgotten to take late store for the first time and you a shower in the morning and have a create a great first impression, and you c a s e o f n a s t y b o d y o d o u r, n o m a t t e r v i s i t t h a t s h o p a g a i n t h e n e x t w e e k t o how positive you come across or how buy chocolate and youre served by the good you look, smells have a way of same shop assistant and she says that stimulating emotions in other people she will give you a discount because and if its not a particularly nice smell youre a great person, all because you i t c r e a t e s a v e r y b a d i m p r e s s i o n , b u t c r e a t e d a s o l i d f i r s t i m p r e s s i o n . Ve r y its pretty much common sense to make simple but very effective and can make sure your personal hygiene is up to life that little bit easier for yourself. scratch. Listening is also a crucial skill to creating a great first impression. Paraphrasing and repeating what the person is saying back to them is a great way to start if you feel your listening skills are not up to scratch, this is important as well as it will help you understand and communicate with other people on a different level. By Alex Breitkreuz & Francis Kwun

In life inevitably we will meet different kinds of people whether they turn out to be friends, acquaintances or lovers, how they interact with us and by the way they look and behave for the first time is what forms an impression in our minds of that particular person as many of us know too well. Ever notice catching a good impression of someone you meet new and you think this person seems like a friendly and polite person thats because they have certain skills and they know exactly what to do to make a first impression. Creating a lasting first impression Of all things before you even think of trying to make an impression is to make sure you have the right attitude, as we all know an attitude is how we view a particular event, task, person etc. Cultivating a strong positive attitude as a foundation for making a first impression will see to it that you get it right.

Wear appropriate clothing for the right occasion. For example you wouldnt wear white to a funeral, or you wouldnt dress in your underwear to go shopping. If you are dressed right for the occasion not only will it elevate your confidence, but will proje c t t h a t c o n f i d e n c e o n t o o t h e r s . Yo u dont have to spend lots of money to look good, even just a trip to Lowes can get you an outfit for under $80 and still look like youve spent $400 on your clothes. Body Posture is also an important f a c t o r, i f y o u a r e w a l k i n g a r o u n d w i t h you back straight and upright, this gives an impression for someone that has a sense of inner confidence, who is of importance and value and can be considered an asset, all without even opening their mouth. Shaking Hands is often overlooked by most people but can generate a good sense of friendliness and professionalism to a person if done at the right time, also shows that you are engaged and are willing to interact with the person you are dealing with.
