Morocco is a country in the North of Africa and is steeped in history and culture. The history of the country spans over 12 centuries so a trip here will offer you plenty to do. With a growing population that currently stands at just over 35 million, there are plenty of opportunities for people to experience and you can be sure of a warm welcome. The growing population, coupled with a healthy economy means businesses have looked upon Morocco as a potential expansion plan.

The Moroccan economy has, since the early nineties, being stabilised and is considered a very liberal economy. This is because many industries that were previously government controlled have since been privatised and as such the economy now runs off a supply and demand. This is great news for UK businesses that may be thinking of moving into the country as it shows they are encouraging foreign investment. Despite this, any move into the Moroccan industry must be researched carefully and the logistics of a move here have to be considered.

When we talk about logistical areas we mean, making sure that anything that has to be sent from the UK to Morocco and vice versa can be done in the most efficient and cost effective way possible. Cost effective may be the most important thing here because in the past, sending a parcel or package to Morocco was not the easiest thing to do and could take weeks for the package to arrive but with the online couriers that are now available, you can sort out the whole delivery online with minimal fuss and you can have your parcel picked up from a home or work address, making it easier for you.

There may be a few people you know who have recently moved out there and there are plenty of reasons why they would. The country is steeped in history and culture; the cuisine for one is considered to be one of the most diverse in the world and is enjoyed by many people all over the world as it is like no other cuisine in the world with a variety of tastes and spices making it unique. Literature and music are also popular pastimes in Morocco and can be enjoyed by all visitors there.

Morocco parcel delivery is going to grow in popularity with a thriving economy and a great culture so if you are looking for the leading international delivery options make sure you search online.

33 Postcards- Ritz

33 Postcards Movie Premiere At Randwick Ritz Sydney, by Eva Rinaldi

Tonight saw 33 Postcards enjoy its premiere at the Randwick Ritz, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The night was not only a movie premiere but also an event somewhat designed to raise awareness and funds for educational and arts programs, tied into the film.

33 Postcards enjoyed strong media support by popular radio station 2UE and benefiting Sydney Children’s Choir and their Bursary Program, giving disadvantaged kids musical and educational opportunities that would have otherwise likely been out of their grasp.

The acclaimed cast and crew of 33 Postcards enjoyed drinks and bites with their fan base, insiders, and entertainment media, and also lapped up performances from the Sydney Children’s Choir and Chinese Lion Dancers.

Then it was time for the Australian theatrical premiere of the flick.

The film was shot in both China and Sydney, Australia in 2010. It’s the story of Chinese orphan Mei Mei (Zhu Lin) who for a decade of dreams about embracing her Australian sponsor Dean Randall (Guy Pearce). It’s not until she reaches 16 years of age, when her orphanage travels down under to Australia to attend a Choir Festival, Mei Mei takes the opportunity to look him up. What she finds however is a far cry from the idyllic life he depicted in his postcards. Initially mismatched, together they begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance. It’s trial, tribulation, and living to fight and survive another day.

Dean is actually a convict in prison for manslaughter, so you can imagine the issues that brings on.

33 postcards won the Community Relations Commission Award at Sydney Film Festival and Victor Dominello MP NSW Minister aptly stated "33 Postcards, inspired by real life stories, explores how two individuals come together despite two different cultures, ages and unexpected circumstances." This evocative film portrays sensitively how people of vastly different cultural backgrounds can interact effectively in our society."

This is an unique and touching story that is rarely told about the relationship that some Aussies have with Chinese Orphans.

It’s not quite for everyone, but if you like a story of survival, beating the odds and the world coming together as one sort of thing, this is likely for you.

Well done to everyone involved in making the event a success.

Are you a budding Hitchcock or a wannabe Spielberg but have never had the money to make your very own film? Well, now there is no excuse as it has never been easier to grab a camera and create your very own Oscar worthy cinematic masterpiece. Films like The Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity have shown just how easy it is to create a fantastic low budget movie that can be a huge global success in its own right. So, if you’re a budding filmmaker, or just a newbie filming enthusiast, there are a few simple tips you can follow to make sure you get the most professional looking work out of your low cost equipment.

Getting the right equipment together for your film shoot can be not only tricky, but expensive too. However, if you are looking to use the same state of the art camera and lights that they use in Hollywood, but you’re looking for a more authentic, low key look for your film there are plenty of low budget cameras available on the market that can do the job well. When you’re shooting your film always remember that the narrative and acting are two of the most important things to get right if you want to make a good impression. You can be forgiven for the quality of your shots if the story is well told and you have good enough actors to pull it off.

Once you’ve got all the shots you want in the can, it’s time to edit together your film and add those finishing touches to complete your movie. Things like transitions, a title sequence and music can all be added at this stage, and you can also move around scenes to make sure you get your masterpiece just the way you want it. If you really want to give your film the professional edge add some credits to the end and make up an official film company logo which you can reuse again and again on your work.

Most new computers will have some sort of in built film editing software for you to use but if you really want to splash out you can opt to buy a specific editing programme so you can give your movies the professional touch. With these programmes you can add colour to your film and you will find a greater range of cutting and editing tools than a run of the mill programmes you can get for free.

Whether you are shooting your film on a small hd camcorder or you are taking out a loan to hire some top class equipment, creating a film you can be proud of takes determination, skill and a lot of creativity, no matter what kind of tools you are using. So if you are keen to put your film skills to good use, grab a low budget camera and get shooting, and you could be collecting that Bafta in no time.

Royal Navy Search and Rescue Winchman During Night Time Exercise

A Royal Navy search and rescue (SAR) helicopter winchman is pictured during a night time exercise.

Culdrose 771 Search and Rescue aircraft, are tasked weekly to by the Coastguard, to help various emergency agencies from Fire Brigade, Ambulance service and lifeguards, to help in the search and rescue of injured and stranded people around the coast of Cornwall.

The training exercise not only tests the pilot’s ability to keep the aircraft in the hover, but also tests the winch men, who have to be lowered in all weather conditions.

For nearly half a century, 771 Naval Air Squadron – known as the Ace of Clubs – has lived up to its motto non nobis solum – ‘not unto us alone’, or in 21st-Century speak, ‘for the greater good’.

Our Sea Kings are scrambled at least 200 times a year, and the figure is rising. 771’s helicopters, which feature the squadron’s unofficial Ace of Clubs logo, provide search and rescue cover for the Western Approaches: that’s the Cornish peninsula, the Isles of Scilly and the Atlantic/Channel to a distance of 200 nautical miles.

That can mean mariners in distress or holidaymakers, walkers, climbers, divers and surfers in difficulty around the Cornish coast The helicopters are also called upon to ferry patients/injured people to hospital in the West Country.

One of the helicopters is at 15 minutes’ notice to fly by day, 45 by night, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with a second aircraft on the Culdrose tarmac ready to join it in the skies should the emergency demand.

JERUSALEM (April 15, 2013) – The eighth station on the Via Dolorosa, where Jesus encountered the Pious Women of Jerusalem. Cardinal Seán and a group of 29 priests of the Archdiocese of Boston have traveled on an Easter pilgrimage to the Holy Land this week, and they’re bringing the readers of blog along with them.

On the last day of their pilgrimage, the pilgrims began by walking the Via Dolorosa, the Way of the Cross, the path through the streets of Jerusalem that Jesus walked with the Cross to the Crucifixion. After celebrating Mass, they thanked those who had taken care of them on their pilgrimage and prepared for their flights home. As they waited, news of the bombings at the Boston Marathon back home reached the pilgrims and they united themselves in prayer with those who were hurt, their families, and the emergency workers who rushed to care for them.

All this week, our colleague George Martell is traveling with the pilgrimage, embedded with the Cardinal and his priests so we can bring you photos, blogs, videos, and audio reports from the Holy Land from the pilgrims at such places as the Basilica of the Annunciation, Mount Carmel, the Sea of Galilee, the Church of the Transfiguration, Qumran, the Mount of Olives, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Upper Room, and more. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus with Cardinal Seán and the Archdiocese’s priests as an Easter retreat experience.

Please stay tuned to, as well as and and our Facebook Page at and Twitter account: for the latest updates from the Holy Land.

LED TV is a bit of a misnomer, but manufacturers and retailers continue to use the term, he makes his way in the public consciousness, the difference is worth attention. TV LED LCD TV with LED lights is really only for lighting rather than traditional fluorescent lighting CFL, for liquid crystal displays. Use a liquid crystal diode (LCD) technology, the front includes the so-called “twisted crystal” technology definition LCD. LED TV features two main types of backlit, edge lighting and local dimming. LED lighting has been around from the edge of the edge of the panel, which allows very fine structure. Recently, the progress of LED (light emitting diode) technology, the lights can create a very small volume, so even if the local dimming LED backlight TV can be a very thin depth. Local dimming LED backlight lamp bank behind the panel and the control of these banks can reduce the amount of backlighting in the dark area, increasing the area of the screen in bright contrast and better blacks. This is done by the various choices of television. A recent example is the ability to open or close the selected local dimming.

We note also the improvement in black levels with this feature. Picture Notes Contrast / black levels Deep manufacturing color LCD panel through the panel by blocking the backlight, the black shows this method has an inherent problem with technology. Local dimming LED backlighting solution to this problem proposed by dimming the backlight, which should be dark. Edge lit LED will have a bright white fluorescent backlit LCD screen than most, but not control local backlight dimming as television does. This comparison has stirred up some of the recent black level performance of LCD TVs are very concentrated. Local Dimming LED TV has become the best in the past. Pros: The first local dimming technology, LED TV, so the contrast levels and black. The second recent TV LCD. The third side lit LED TV Color accuracy With white LED backlight, the difference between the two technologies are not very important, but the color of the RGB color wheel lights or LED backlighting of color TV have an advantage in the display vibrant colors. Advantage: White LED backlight LCD TV and TV backlighting fluorescent color virtually the same accuracy. Color LED backlit TV trumps both. Angle Answer to this question will often change. It seems to have some effect, now the biggest issue is the quality perspective of transparent glass in front of the TV or LCD or LED. The thicker and higher quality of this glass, better viewing angle, a little harsh adverse deterioration. Indeed, anti-glare technology to prevent glare suppressed, but the image of depth and perspective.

Recently, we saw some LCD TV has a very good perspective and depth of image Although this never happens. We also believe that it is very expensive slim edge lit LED TV show poor contrast and black level degradation perspective, just 30 degrees off center. Local Dimming LED TV will have better performance and natural light from directly behind the screen. Advantages: local dimming LED TV, then TV, LCD, and then edge lit LED TV. The biggest variable in all three is the quality of the glass facade, add depth, good viewing angle and glare. Anti-glare screen is ever so bad depth and perspective. Fast-moving video playback Fast video is a function of response time and refresh rate and LED LCD TV. The type of the backlight of the TV has no effect on reproduction of fast motion video. I would like to compare the response time and refresh rate in making purchasing decisions. The new 120Hz, 240Hz, 480Hz speed and functionality is similar behavior in our experience, the manufacturer may be more than that in reality the frequency of Hz.
