Honda Supersport Bikes For The One-Make Championship

The lineup of Honda supersport bikes was designed to push the limits of speed and performance while providing the rider with total confidence and control. Honda, the Japanese motorcycle maker introduced NSF250R Cup in India so that aspiring racers can battle it out for the one-make championship.

It was called NSF250R Cup because the motorcycle that will be used is an 84-kilo, 48PS making Moto3 –spec bike called the NSF250R. The supersport bike was developed in 2011 by Honda’s racing division, Honda Racing Corporation. Many Moto3 races were won by Honda using the same bike including the constructor’s title in 2015. The 2014 and 2015 Moto3 world championships were won by popular motorcycle racers Alex Marquez and Danny Kent using the NSF250R.

Currently, Honda has offered the pro stock 165cc bikes for the one-make championship in India. Compared to the pro stock 165 cc bikes, NSF250R is a small bike. It is even smaller than stock Honda CBR250R that was introduced to India as a supersport bike. The compactness of the bike is due to the brand new single-cylinder engine that is banked towards the rear at 15-degree angle.

The NSF250R has a 249.3cc, liquid-cooled single cylinder engine, high rev band of 13000rpm while making a 48.3Ps of maximum power and 28Nm of peak torque. In comparison, stock CBR250R only makes 26.5PS and 22.8 Nm. More astonishing is its kerb weight which is just 84 kilos which gives the motorcycle a power-to-weight ratio of 575PS per tonne.

NSF250R is loaded with premium tech that includes a special 7000 series pressed aluminum frame, adjustable clip-on and rear seats, steering damper and fully adjustable USD’s in front and pro link mono-shock at the back. Disc brake in front is 296mm and 186mm disc at the back.  There is no ABS because it is strictly a race bike.

A fantastic range of Honda supersport bikes are available at the Leicester and Petersbrough area in the United Kingdom. Both new and loyal customers can expect unbeatable service. Along with the supersport bikes is the parts and accessories department to add a personal touch to the bike and make it unique from other bikes.

Proactive Plumbing Maintenance To Prevent Expensive Damages

Preventive maintenance on the plumbing system is not on the list of priorities of a homeowner. The plumber in Newcastle is just a call away but the only time that a homeowner or business owner calls is when disaster wrecks havoc on the property. Ignoring potential plumbing issues until things go wrong will be more expensive to resolve.

Most people will never neglect regular service for the car but they have never been proactive when it comes to plumbing maintenance. According to O’Neil and Brown Plumbing, there are domestic disasters waiting to happen like blocked sewers and storm water pipes, hot water system failures and burst water pipes. Proactive maintenance will save a homeowner from significant costs in repairing damages.

According to Damien Holder, Plumbing Service Manager, property owners are starting to be aware of the importance of proactive maintenance. Real estate agents that manage different building complexes are implementing preventive maintenance because they have realized its cost benefits and efficiencies.

Damien Holder suggests service every 3, 6 or 12 months for multiple bank hot water systems in an apartment, townhouse and commercial complex. To avoid over service, it is important to assess the plumbing system on a case to case basis by gathering data on flow, usage and demand to increase the life cycle of assets and reduce running costs.

There are domestic issues like the movement of water from the property during a storm which can be a serious concern if ignored. The likelihood of water damage during major storms is quite high due to climate change. Given the potential of major damage to property, it makes more sense to have proactive maintenance.

Another major issue is roots that invade sewers and storm water pipes. This problem requires a long term solution that would suit the property but cost effective for the homeowner.

Preventive maintenance on the plumbing system can be provided by the plumber in Newcastle for an affordable price. Issues with the pipes and drains will be fixed for good to save you from worrying about expensive repairs. Customer satisfaction is guaranteed from the start of the service until it is finished.

Compensation Given To Victims Of Crime In Melbourne

The effects of a crime to a person vary in many ways and every person reacts differently to the situation. Initially, a person may feel fearful, shocked, or angry, which are common reactions when one is a victim of a crime.

Crimes are rampant in any place of the world which are influenced by many factors such as drugs, corruption, syndicates, poverty, and even simple disputes. Many victims of crime in Melbourne are compensated if the financial situation of the victim is affected and this assistance comes from the VOCAT or Victims of Crime Assistance Tribunal.

Because of your suffering and pain experienced from the crime, you can get paid by VOCAT and help you in the following:

  • Medical expenses and counselling
  • Damage or loss to worn clothing during the incident
  • Expenses for safety
  • Lost earnings
  • Funeral costs

Amount of Assistance

The amount of financial help VOCAT pays to the victims of crime in Melbourne averages $7700, however, this amount can vary depending on the victim’s situation. The ceiling amount depends on the crime’s details and the type of victim which is either primary victim, secondary victim, or related victim.

Compensation from the criminal or offender

If the offender is found culpable of the offense committed, you can also get compensated by them by applying for an order from the court so the offender can:

  1. Compensate the pain, injuries, and suffering you experienced because of the crime.
  2. Pay for any damaged, sold, or lost property.
  3. Return stolen possessions.

Three ways of claiming compensation from the offender

  1. Compensation through criminal court action
  2. Compensation through the civil court case
  3. Compensation through PCQF or Prisoner Compensation Quarantine Fund

Preparing a compensation claim

  1. The victim must coordinate with the officer who is handling the case before it is elevated to court. Inform the police officer about your intention to claim for compensation from the offender.
  2. Keep all medical receipts to support your claims for suffering, injuries, and pain. A doctor’s medical certification is possibly needed for evidence.
  3. Property damage claims must be supported by quotes on the cost to replace or repair.
  4. For theft, the court may require the guilty to return all the goods or amount stolen. If the items are lost, sold, or destroyed, the court can let the offender pay the value of all the goods stolen from the victim.

It is just fair to compensate victims of crime for the inconvenience caused by the crime which include financial, use of government services for victims, and restitution of loss.

Various Products For Sydney Roof And Building Supplies

A house or business establishment won’t be complete with buying the right Sydney roof and building supplies for the construction. These materials are necessary from the planning stage to the foundation and the construction of the structure.

Thousands Have Tied The Knot Following Australia’s Legalization Of Same-Sex Marriage

It’s been more than a year since Australia legalized same-sex marriage, which has been a good time for same-sex couples across the country, as well as the wedding industry, with many a Sydney wedding stylist getting more work thanks to the new weddings.

According to the Registry of Birth, Deaths and Marriages in the states and territories of Australia, there’s been thousands of same-sex marriages across the AU, following the legalisation of same-sex marriage, in December 9 of 2018.

A lot of the registry offices provided statistics up to the end of November 2018, resulting in a slightly off data. That being said, the numbers show that there were 5,985 same-sex marriages registered across Australia.

New South Wales is the home of the world-famous Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardis Gras, and, unsurprisingly, it has the most same-sex marriages registered, as of November 15, 2018, with 2,004, to the benefit of many a Sydney wedding stylist and others in the wedding industry.

The top five are rounded out by:

  • Victoria (1,552)
  • Queensland (1,241)
  • Western Australia (519)
  • South Australia (372)

Tasmania had 128 same-sex weddings, with 39 of these were male couples, while the remaining 89 couples were female.

The Australian Capital Territory, as of the time of writing, has the only openly gay leader in Australia; Chief Minister Andrew Barr. The region saw 124 same-sex marriages registered up to November 30. The Northern Territory, meanwhile, had a smaller population, which accounted, in part, for its smaller numbers; 45 same-sex weddings for 26 female couples and 19 male couples.

Aussie Marriage Equality spokeswoman Shirleene Robinson says that the country embraced the change when they voted for marriage equality. She believes that the most beautiful thing is to see all of the weddings that are happening because of the legislation being passed, and all of the loving couples having the power to make that statement in front of their loved ones.

While the legislation has been good, and a step forward in the right direction, there remains work to be done in order to make Australia completely accepting of same-sex marriages. One marriage celebrant, by the name of Joanne Armstrong, opened up about the terrible stories she’s either heard of or were part of. She says the legislation gave the people the ability to marry who they love, but that’s just a first step.

Phuket’s Light-rail Targets To Start Operation By 2023

According to the Regional Bureau of Transportation and Traffic Promotion, OTP, Niran Kaetkeaw, the light-rail system of Phuket is on the right track with regards to progress. Mr. Niran shared that the e-bidding for the light-rail is set to begin in 2019 and the bidding will close the following year. As soon as bidding closes, construction will begin and the light-rail system will be completed in 2022. This is good news for tourists and businesses including Novotel in Phuket which will benefit from the project.

Mr. Niran added that the trial period will last for the first year and by 2023 the light-rail system will be fully available to serve the general public. The legal authority to monitor the project’s progress has been given to the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand or MRTA. At the same time, MRTA has been gathering feedback from the public as well as related agencies to help determine the terms necessary for the government tender which is under public and private partnership.

The report will be forwarded to the Ministry of Transport which will help in faster processing of the government tender documents. The first 41.7 kilometres will begin construction during the first six months of 2022 or before 2023 starts. The allotted budget for the first part is 30.154 billion baht.

The whole project will span 58.52 kilometers and the total cost will amount to 39.406 billion baht. The northern part of the route will stick along Thepkrasattri Road. The route was chosen based on the survey that showed that it provides access to a lot of communities located on both sides and it also pass through 40 different schools. The light-rail will be able to service the local residents as well as the students around the area.

Mr. Niran explained that the main goal of the light-rail system is to provide convenience and to decrease the population of private cars. Tourists departing from Phuket International Airport, on the other hand, can ride the light-rail and reach Phuket Town, their accommodations such as Novotel in Phuket or any other parts of the island without the need to hire or rent a private car.
