Australian Open Of Surfing; Manly Beach, Sydney, Australia; The Living End Rocks

The inaugural Australian Open of Surfing has hit Sydney, Australia via Australia’ home of surfing – Manly Beach.

In excess of 100,000 people are expected to have embarked on Sydney’s Manly Beach by the end the nine-day event. Today it looked like 150,000 were at Manly Beach.

Make no mistake – this is Australia biggest surf, skate and music festival combo.

The weather has been changeable throughout the event, but today was blue skies all the way.

Locals supported home grown surfers such as Cooper Chapman, a 17-year-old from Narrabeen.

The youngster came into the competition as a wildcard entrant and surfed one-on-one with world number-two Joel Parkinson.

“I’ve always looked up to (Parkinson), he has been one of my favourite surfers for a long time,” Chapman told the Manly Daily.

Surfing is just one of a number of cool activities.

Skaters (skate board riders) as young as eight, as well as international pro, have been competing for $ US50,000 (,000) in prize money in the Beach Bowl skate bowl.

The nine-day Australian Open of Surfing has been declared a success by organisers, sponsors and supporters, including the state government’s Destination NSW program.

"It brings the best of surf, skate and music to the harbour city, embracing youth culture and promoting the unique energy of Sydney’s outdoor lifestyle," says the Minister for Tourism, George Souris, eyeing an extra million tourism boost.

The Manly extravaganza is based on the US Open of Surfing, a week-long celebration of surfing, skating, BMX, fashion, art and lifestyle held annually at Huntington Beach, California.

"It’s just huge there. Attracts about a million people," says Jason Haynes, the general manager of surfwear company Hurley, principal co-sponsor with Billabong of the Manly event.

His expectations in Manly are more modest. "We’re just getting started. We’d be pleased with 100,000," Haynes says. "So far it ticks all the boxes in terms of location, weather, waves, community support."

The Australian Open – which has been several years and a "substantial", though undisclosed, budget in the making – has been booked initially into the calendar for three years.

"We want it to be part of the calendar. We hope families will book their holidays in Australia round the event," says Bob Hurley, the company’s chairman and founder. He also hopes to attract more top male surfers.

Top line music performers are also sharing the stage of success with the surfers and skaters.

Music acts like Sneaky Sound System, Children Collide and Stonefield are entertaining the masses at the event also, with Children Collide and The Living End whipping up a storm this afternoon.

The Australian Open of Surfing concluded today.

Are Led Tvs Worth The Money?

A good deal of hype has been surrounding LED televisions of late which beg many questions: Are they really better, are they worth the money, do they provide a better picture? A good starting point might be to find out exactly what an LED television is and how it differs from televisions that have been available on the market for some time. In short people might be excited about the idea of an LED television without a great deal of knowledge about what they are and how they work, this article will aim at answering both of those questions.

First off, an LED television is essentially the same thing as an LCD television. The LED moniker essentially refers to the backlight element to a new variety of LCD television. So when you are talking about an LCD television you should know that what you are really talking about is simply a variation on the traditional LCD television. LED televisions replace the traditional florescent backlighting elements with LED lighting which does provide some advantages that we will speak of below.

LED televisions undoubtedly offer some pretty neat features but do they justify the high price tag? To answer that question we will first have to decide whether an LCD television is what you want at all. If you want a television that is the least money for the size and provides perhaps the most vivid colors including the richest blacks than you may in actuality prefer a plasma screen television. This option may fly out the window if you are planning to use the television in a bright room as plasma televisions tend to produce allot of glare. This is one of the primary advantages of an LCD television, namely that LCD televisions can be viewed more easily in higher light conditions than there plasma alternatives. Of course whatever the LCD can do the LED will do as well, so you will be getting a good higher light television that will also offer compact size and power saving ability over the typical plasma television. Another advantage of the LED model is that you will see an increase in the balance of color saturation as well as less leakage during low light scenes.

Before you decide to buy a LED unit you will want to check out both Edge Lighting and Full Array units. LED televisions come in two different formats as named above that will provide somewhat different viewing experiences: Edge Lighting units can be thinner, while Full Array will likely provide more control over light and color in the picture at the cost of a little extra bulk. So if your heart is set on an LED television than you should check out standard LCD televisions side-by-side with their newer counterparts and see if there is a noticeable difference that you are willing to pay for. If you decide that the LED unit is absolutely what you want, then also compare both types of LED televisions to see which one provides you with the options and control that you desire.

You can find this street artist at the Djemaa el Fna square in the old city of Marrakech, Medina. The only trick he has is the miracle hats, which seem to wonder off by themselves. Of course the real artists are the guinea pig and the hedgehog who walk around under the hats. All the other animals are just there for the entourage. Another must see if you visit Marrakech!

“The training is good, it’s great. It helps us to learn and to earn a living”

Nahed* is from Homs in Syria.

"I was living happily there before the conflict started", she says.

"But after it began, the situation became mixed-up. We decided to come to Lebanon, because I was afraid for my children. They were traumatised by what they had seen and heard."

"The cooperative and IRC offered us this work making fishing nets here. The training is good, it’s great. It helps us to learn and to earn a living."

"I hope to be able to sell the nets to get some income, to be able to support my family."

Learning how to knit fishing nets might not seem the most urgent priority for refugees who fled Syria’s civil war, yet the International Rescue Committee believes that providing the essential tools to help people to find work is a vital way to help them support themselves.

The women also learn how to finish nets by sewing weights and floats to them. The nets are then ready for sale to local fishermen. There’s certainly an art to the craft; it takes months of practice to become expert. Once fully trained it is possible for one woman to knit a 100-meter or 300 foot long fishing net in just three hours.

The UK has committed over £800 million to help those affected by the conflict in Syria – our largest ever response to a humanitarian crisis.

In addition to livelihoods projects like this one, UK funding is providing support including food, medical care and relief items for over a million people – people who have been affected by the fighting but are still inside Syria and those who have fled the country and become refugees in neighbouring Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq.
