An Australian Comedian Killing Causes Social Media Outcry

Safety is a matter of concern today but there are areas that are considered relatively safe and Melbourne, Australia is one of them. Despite the city being safe, a young comedian was recently killed when walking home from a performance.  

Eurydice Dixon, a female comedian aged 22 lifeless bodies were found at Princes Park on Tuesday. A passerby saw the body and alerted the police who later said there would be a patrol in the area. 

Social Media Outcry 

There are several things about the murder of the comedian that has led to a loud social media outcry. One is the fact that Melbourne is considered safe but such a heinous crime still happened and the second one is the words of authorities while addressing the issue.  

A superintendent from Victoria police told the community that they should be responsible for their own safety. This did not go very well with many people who took to social media to condemn the statement from the police. 

In September 2012, Gill Meagher, an Irish woman aged 29 was raped and killed in Melbourne a killing that angered many.  Many vigils were held in her honor and there are vigils already planned for Dixon. On Monday, there will be a vigil at the … Read the rest

Ways to teach your child about finance

What conversations are we having with our children; about the birds and the trees and to stay away from drugs? Very smart! Let’s add finances and how to be financially responsible while you’re at it.

The most common question among parents is at what age to introduce the topic of money to young children. The answer is always as soon as they can learn to count. Think about it; every adult was once a child and whatever values that were instilled in us as children are the ones we are going to hold on to for rest of our lives. They do not call them formative years for anything.

The role of schools is very crucial however different from that of parents. Most will agree that some changes are overdue in the education system to accommodate and reflect the changes in today’s world but that would take years of research and red tape before it passes and is applied in schools. More practically, what do children need to learn about finance from their parent?

  1. Honest and hard work is the only way to earn a living. Install the virtue of legal and hard work (not child labor) in them by giving them chores around the house and rewarding them

3 Tips to Get the Most Cash Out Of Your Junk Car

Tip 1: Understand the value of your car

Before disposing of your junk car, check how much the car is worth. The following factors will give you a clue;

  • The number of pre-owners
  • Its depreciation over the period of time it has been in use or rather how long in terms of years the car has been running.
  • Its mileage-and this means miles  the car has covered
  • And finally the condition of the car considering how well the vehicle has been serviced.

A quick fact which many people don’t know is that the depreciation of your car isn’t entirely 100% dependent on the condition you leave the car in. The moment you leave the car dealership, your car loses its market value which is around 8-11% of the initial price. So don’t expect much if the car has serviced you for more than 5 years as then it’ll have depreciated by around 32-38% of the original price. But you can still get good cash if the parts and body are in good conditions.

Tip 2: Shop around for different buyers/ junkyards

Just like in all businesses, prices vary from junk yard to junkyard. Some car removal operators offer a higher price than others. So if you want to get … Read the rest
