Australasian Law Awards gets some entertainment and wow factor with Human Statue Bodyart judge living statues at Sydney Town Hall…

The ALB Australasian Law Awards is the premier awards event for the Australian and New Zealand legal industry. It brings together under one roof more than 500 in-house counsels, private practitioners and industry leaders to celebrate excellence in the legal profession, recognising individuals, teams and companies for their outstanding achievements.

For the uninitiated, ALB stands for ‘Australasian Legal Business’, which is a leading trade publication from Thomson Reuters.

Last Thursday the awards came with some extra excitement and wow factor.

The legal world collaborated with the creative arts arts and entertainment world, as Sydney based Human Statue Bodyart created and provided 4 human statue ‘Living Judges’.

The prestigious event was so large that it took up two rooms. The human statues were in the ‘Vestibule’ room, while dinner for hundreds of guests was served in the adjoining ‘Centennial Hall’.

As far as we can ascertain, it was the first time that the Law Awards (or any other legal entity in Australia), has used human statues, living statues, or even done anything with bodypaint. From the excellent feedback received, it will not be the last time that the awards or legal sector in Australia uses statues from Human Statue Bodyart.

It’s understood that Thomson Reuters was the prime organiser of the event.

It is not easy to determine whether to go with free or paid web hosting companies. It boils down to what your needs are and how much you expect them to grow within a certain period of time. There are certain obvious benefits that come with a free web hosting directory and also a few setbacks. Let’s get into it and look at the merits of free FTP.

Most noteworthy about the benefits of free hosting is that it does not lay any financial burden on the client. The free hosting is a great choice for personal websites and small business websites that are looking to make a name on the Internet.The providers provide fertile ground for Internet startups that have yet to start selling to online clients.

Another benefit is that free asp.net web hosting is often available and it is a great tool for upcoming programmers to sharpen their skills. Common programming languages including: ASP, CGI/Perl, PHP, JSP, and ColdFusion are often supported by providers with varying levels of support. A good website that provides a free hosting directory such as Freehosting1.net allows access to these languages and helps you to take advantage of the features of companies; one often needs to pay a small fee to utilize premium features.

Jumping into paid directories, you can easily remove any type of advertising from the website as long as you don’t want it. You can also benefit from having your own domain name instead of having your website reside in a sub-domain. Needless to say that search engine visibility is enhanced by having a distinct domain to represent your company.

The providers have round-the-clock support. Highly customizable control panels are usually provided by paid web hosts. With the control panels you can view important web statistics, protect certain parts of the website with passwords, and create web-based email accounts. It goes without saying that you can get free ftp with unlimited bandwidth from a majority of web hosts.

One minor setback about using a web host from a free web hosting directory is that you are not allowed to specify the advertisements that will appear on your website. Also, freely hosted websites are included in sub-domains which makes them rank poorly in search engines. Support is not available round the clock with free web hosts and this makes it difficult to deal with problems as they occur.

It comes with a major disadvantage. There is a varying amount of financial investment needed in order to secure the services of hosting company. Depending on the functionality that you want to incorporate into your website, you have to pay additional sums of money to upgrade the package. Many fully-featured packages can set you back a considerable amount of money. So for these reasons and more, free web hosting directories are more often than not a better method of having a place to put your website rather than paid directories.

Australia Day 2012 At Bondi Beach, Sydney – Havaianas Thong Challenge

About 120,000 Australians enjoyed much of their Australia Day at Bondi Beach today, with over 1000 purchasing giant Havaianas thongs.

The overcast conditions prevented the participants from breaking last years world record of 2068 giant inflatable Havaianas in a line but there was no shortage of enthusiasm.

North Bondi foundation nipper Paul Mangioni and current nipper Duke Wieland didn’t let the wet weather and muggy conditions stop them from having a go.

Bondi Beach, Bronte, and Tamarama beaches and parks were all alcohol-free zones, in a preventive measure to stop any trouble before it started – thong bearer or not.

This years Havaianas Thong Challenge was a little different – From the beach to the backyard was the pitch.

The thong challenge organisers are keen to see your photos from the beach with their thong and photos can be submitted via their Havaianas Australia Facebook.

2012 Beach activities included:

Havaianas Paddle Challenge (Paddling Race)
Havaianas Dash For Thongs (Beach Flags)
Giant Havaianas Relay (Running Race)

Most folks were happy just to enjoy a swim and have a bit of a sun bake, with the organisers there garner publicity.

Having a go is the Aussie way, so well done to everyone for spending some time at beautiful Bondi Beach today.
