  • Bike Comments Off on Six Easy Tips To Take Care Of Your Aprilia Motorcycles

    Owning the motorcycle of your dreams is a great achievement. But the motorcycle has to be maintained properly to keep it functioning to its maximum capacity for long duration. Regular maintenance of the motorcycle can be easily done at home.

    Here are a few regular maintenance tips to keep your Aprilia motorcycles in top shape for years.

    1. Engine oil is an essential component of the motorcycle that needs to be changed frequently. Engine oil is necessary to lubricate the gears and engines of the motorcycles and also aids in keeping the engine cool. Refer to the user’s manual of your Aprilia motorcycles to know about the frequency of oil change. Stick to the mentioned scheduled religiously as not changing the engine oil at prescribed times will lead to problems in the engine.
    2. The next important part in a motorcycle is the spark plug. It is responsible to create the spark that helps to start the bike and also ignite the petrol. The spark plug should be inspected regularly and replaced according to the instructions provided in the user’s manual of your Aprilia motorcycles. Use only genuine parts as mentioned in the manual. The extra cost will be worth as using authorized parts will keep your bike functioning properly.
    3. Inspect the chain which rotates the rear tyre regularly. The chain should not be too tight or too loose. It should be properly lubricated in order to increase the lifespan. Improper lubrication of the chain will lead to excess wear and tear due to excess heat.
    4. Keep the bike clean by washing it regularly. Washing the bikes regularly will not only improve the aesthetic looks of the bike but also will help to keep it functioning efficiently. Do not opt for high-pressure washes.
    5. Inspect the electrical system of the bike regularly. Check for any cuts or abrasions on the cables. Replace the worn out cables to keep the electrical system of the bike in top condition.
    6. Check the tyre pressure regularly and maintain the necessary pressure. The details regarding this will be available in your Aprilia motorcycles user manual. Maintaining proper tyre pressure is very important as over-inflated tyres will not provide the necessary grip on road and under-inflated tyres may overheat and fail, leading to dangerous accidents.

  • Funerals, Service, Tips Comments Off on Live Streaming Funerals Are Helping People Grieve

    Live streaming has made celebrities of people on the internet, a fact that Twitch built itself on. But live streaming was originally envisioned with the idea of bringing people together, letting them experience life no matter how distant they are from each other.

    And it seems like funeral directors in Sydney and across Australia have moved with the times, with funeral live streaming, and a new branch of the funeral services industry; funeral IT. Yeah, that’s right, an IT department for helping you properly send off the duly departed.  If it’s not a direct offer from the funeral company, there are companies popping up that can offer live streaming during funerals.

    It’s already something people are taking advantage of, as ANC News recently reported on this development in the funeral industry, and the article’s first paragraph covers the usefulness of funeral live streams quite well.  It talks about the funeral of one Emily Rotta, an adventurous soul hailing from Milan, who went to Australia with her husband and son.

    Emily herself chose the company to handle her funeral services, to ensure that they had a live streaming service so she could involve her family back home, in Milan. This ensured that her distant family, still in their home country, were part of the grief, and also got closure.

    This is why it’s such a development. Some people are simply unable to attend the funeral of a loved one, either due to being busy at work, an illness, being halfway across the globe, or simply the sheer suddenness of the person’s passing. This lets people circumvent that issue. The internet has long since talked about how it brings people together from across the world, and this is just a natural extension of that. Why it took so long, however, might be due to the fact that funerals are considered sacredaffairs, rightfully so.

    There’s even been some support from experts, with University of Queensland’s Prof.Judity Murray, saying that there are benefits. Of course, she’s also warned that it’s just like anything else with technology; there are risks involved and there might be unintended consequences. It’s a good thing to work towards understanding the technology before we go crazy with it, yes?

  • Aussies, Service, Tips Comments Off on Aussies Hit By Two-Day Internet Outage

    A damaged cable in Australia, accidentally cut by construction crews working on an apartment in Chatswood, resulted in a two-day internet outage for Aussies, particularly for several companies. In this day and age, when the internet is treated as more an necessity than a luxury, such an outage would be devastating to Aussies of all stripes and professions, from a wedding planner in Sydney to an office worker in Queensland.

    The people who were most affected were the Aussies who had Dodo, iPrimu, Aussie Broadband and Exetel as their internet providers. The outage stretched across all of Sydney, even reaching people all the way out in Prospect, with some people in the CBD being affected.

    Naturally, there were quite a few complaints regarding the matter, with many an Aussie, from a wedding planner in Sydney, to a lawyer in Melbourne, among others, complaining on the outage and how long it was taking for the providers to deal with. Among the complaints was the fact that the outage affected certain people, but not others.

    Now, you look at that, that would indeed come across as problematic, and somewhat unfair. Some people’s jobs are so intrinsically tied to the internet that they’re effectively jobless without it.

    Naturally, the companies stated that they were doing what they could to deal with the issue as quickly as possible. Whether or not that’s true is a very touchy subject, but, for the sake of discussion, let’s assume that the companies did, in fact, deal with the matter as soon as they possibly could. After all, not only were they losing money, but they were up to their necks in complaints from angry customers.

    In that scenario, you would think that major telecommunications companies would have some sort of failsafe whenever an accident that damages their network cables. If not a failsafe, then at least have some prepared measures for such an eventuality. Not only did the repairs take time to start up, but there was also a time delay thanks needing specialized replacements.

    The recent outage made for some very upset customers, no doubt, and sowed doubt in the Australian populace. Telecomm companies need to act, and get the people’s trust back. One more thing, anyone else wondering what happened to the workers who were accidentally responsible for one of the bigger service outages in Australia this year?
