In this fast-paced world where everything in about convenience we know that time is money and so we are available to make your life easier. In today’s world, even hair seems to be growing at a fast pace so we know and understand the importance of personal grooming for men and women.

Waxing London

Hair removal is one of the most sought after services in the personal grooming industry, with many choices available, such as shaving and sugaring. As therapists with expertise in this area, we highly recommend the benefits of waxing since the long-term benefits of waxing speak for themselves.

Waxing ensures that the hair is removed from the root which means that the entire hair follicle has to re-grow from the root outwards, essentially significantly slowing the process of hair re-growth down. By doing so, the hairs take the longest time possible to regenerate. Not only do that take a longer period of time to regrow but they also thin out over time which means that you have less hair follicles growing new hairs. Shaving has always been a popular option for hair removal as it is easy and fairly cost effective and can be done in the privacy of your own home. The shaving of hair in certain areas is quick and easy which makes the fast re-growth something that can be easily dealt with. When it comes to some of the more sensitive areas, shaving can be problematic due to the nature of the area and the skin is affected during the shaving process. Loose skin and folds are easy nicked with manual or electric razors causing pain and sometimes damage to the areas. For this reason, shaving is not at all recommended for these sensitive areas. Shaving in sensitive areas also often results in in-grown hairs and itchiness as a result of the regrowth. This can leave the area looking inflamed and blemished, the effects of which can last long after the hair itself has re-grown. Should one decide to wax the area after shaving it is recommended that the area be restored to its natural healthy condition before proceeding with the waxing procedure. Waxing treatments Hammersmith will ensure that skin is healthy and in good condition prior to proceeding with the waxing process, in order to avoid further pain and discomfort to the areas affected.

To make your lives easier, book on our website directly where you can chose your treatment at a time and date that suits you best without the inconvenience of making a phone call. From leg and bikini areas for women and back and chest waxing for men, we have every option to suit your preference. This is just another way in which we hope to make your experience with us more satisfactory.

Securing your data is never easier

As technology becomes more sophisticated, so too do those determined to hack their way through to your personal information making the act of protecting such information and that of your clients, even more difficult and significantly more important.  Cyberattacks have made victims of Equifax, GitHub, BadRabbit and more resulting in a loss of BILLIONS in loss of productivity as well as financial repercussions thereof. And according to the cybersecurity experts, the rate and severity of these attacks will only continue to spiral out of control. Online Trust Alliance stated that 2017 was the harshest year yet for data breaches and cyber incidents, with the gigantic increase in ransomware leading to close on double the number (160 000) of cyberattacks in 2016 (82 000).

Small and medium, start up and entrepreneurial business owners must wonder how soon their own data and information will be accessed and destroyed or sold for profit. And you can’t be blamed for thinking that way. Even though the incidents of cyberattacks has been lavishly reported through the media, it is often surprising to find out that companies are not taking this threat as seriously as they should. Where in a matter of milliseconds, everything that your business operates on a daily basis on, can vanish before your eyes. And recovery will certainly cost you, if it is even at all possible to recover the information which you have lost.

Sage Cloud is an answer to those who are aware enough to be concerned about cyberattacks within their business. Only the latest, up to the minute technologies have the capacity to combat these attacks. Often times when businesses are looking for solutions, they consider the traditional approach of desktop-hosted software which is far easier to hack than encrypted cloud-based technology which is your most viable alternative.

Utilising Sage Cloud means that companies can avoid the previously high costs partnered with setting up of new technology on local hardware devices, eliminating the need for on-site servers and other technology which has previously been required. High enterprise server technology from UK-based locations ensure that your business and all of your employees are able to access the cloud which is high performance technology, from any device in any location, using a wide-ranging array of underlying resources, faster and more efficiently than ever before. No fail access ensures productivity and performance at all times. Discounting the savings which will be enjoyed as a result of eliminating hardware costs, there is the added benefit of avoiding large and on-going amounts of financial outlay for localised IT support as well as supplier expenses.

Securing your data is never easier as back-ups are performed regularly and servers are automatically maintained at no added expense to, or intervention by the user. And data is completely isolated and contained for each individual enterprise ensuring absolute security, provided by your hosts, Knowall IT.

Funerals and Wills

Lodge Brothers funeral services is always here to help. We know how unpredictable life can be on a daily basis and that things happen when you least expect it. This is why we make ourselves available at any time on any day, by phone or email. With 533,253 deaths in Wales and the UK in 2017. The office of National statistics shows that the provisional number of deaths registered in England and Wales in the week ending 31 August 2018 was 7,865. Yourmoney.com reports that “Around 60% of UK adults still haven't made a will, according to new research from Unbiased.co.uk, leaving around 31 million people at risk of dying intestate. If you die without a will your estate will be distributed solely according to intestacy law, which may not reflect your wishes.”

Karen Barrett, CEO and founder of Unbiased, said “It’s clear that many people think they’re just not ‘rich enough’ to need a will. This ignores the fact that a will makes inheritance a far quicker process – do they really want to keep their loved ones waiting longer, when that money might be badly needed? It also doesn’t take into account the complexity of modern families, which intestacy law simply doesn’t address. Children from previous marriages could end up receiving nothing at all.”

At Lodge Brothers, we agree that this is the essential issue surrounding those who pass away without a will and encourage customers who we meet on a daily basis, not to find themselves in the same position as their loved ones who have gone before them. The financial consequences when a loved one dies affects the whole family and especially when there is a young family involved, this can have lasting and irreversible long-lasting effects on the family unit and extended family members. While you may not feel that you are rich enough to have a will, consider what the effects would be on your family should they have to love just one month or one week if you are a weekly paid individual.

At Lodge Brothers we have options to suit every pocket and take pride in extending a helping hand to our hundreds of clients in our local areas. You can find our offices in your local areas simply by visiting our website and searching by location. You will find that we have offices in all locations and we offer additional probate services. For example, should you be looking for probate in Chertsey, Ham or Guildford, simply search probate Chertsey, probate Ham or probate Guildford to find your local branch and contact telephone number or email address. Otherwise you can go to our branch locator search feature, capture your nearest branch, town name of post code, for ease of access to information concerning all services we offer.  If you’d like to know a little more about our services, we can send our ‘Guide to Arranging A Funeral’ to your home, or you can view and download a PDF.

Dukes of Daisy breaks the mold

Dukes of Daisy is a business that provides a niche’ service for a growing market. http://www.kitv.com reported at the end of August 2018 that ‘There is no doubt that there is an increase in the use of escorts not only in the United Kingdom but across the globe, with many people beginning to appreciate the fact that they can appear at an event looking stunning and turning heads not particularly due to what they are putting on, but actually due to who they are having on – beautiful, gorgeous, attractive lady.” (PRDistribution.com)

With an increased need for escorts and rent a date, around the country, Dukes of Daisy is in the unique position of being able to offer a service which is not only easy to access, simple to understand and where there are no hidden costs or surprises. What makes us unique is the transparency under which we operate. This is a “what you see if what you get’ services which we believe is the reason for our on-going success. Clients are coming back time again to enjoy the company of different individuals for different occasions.

The term “escort service” has long gone hand in hand with the concept of “sex on order”. Dukes of Daisy breaks that mold and offers the unique opportunity to young men and women around the country a vehicle through which they can reach out and meet new people. Studies have shown that more and more young people are using technology to meet new people and that the ability to instantly access friends online, is what people are looking for.  Human beings on the whole reply on technology to fill a gap in their social lives. However at the end of the day, there is a life outside of the computer and human nature will inevitable move people to meet and be social. And this is where Dukes of Daisy has the unique market of providing friends for people who are able to get to know each other as slowly or as quickly as they prefer.

Other services in the sex industry are costly and not affordable to many young folks. We have taken this into account and allowed our rent a friend to choose their rates so that when a young man or woman is looking for company, they have to power to choose what is going to suit them. Matched with the ability to search for partners who have similar interests as you, people often save money using our website rather than wasting money on date after date with someone who often turns out not to have the looks they may have portrayed, nor the same interests. Dukes of Daisy offers a safe and easy alternative to going out with strangers, or meeting strangers. We are in the business of creating friendships and connections and are happy to report that for many of our clients, these introductions have led to life-long relationships of every kind.

DO NOT USE MOTION CHARTERS

Do NOT use Motion Charters

These people do not deliver the boat promised and then steal your deposit. These guys ARE conmen.

rating

Two years in a row, they failed to deliver the J109 that was promised, for Cowes week (2017 & 2018).

In 2018 they substituted the boat for a Fairview sailing boat and then tried to claim to Fairview sailing that we were to settle the bill, even though we had paid £5K for the weeks charter to Motion Charters took a £3K insurance waiver deposit and are now refusing to return deposit, on the basis that we should pay Fairview another £1,900.

Never ever communication, worst people I have ever dealt with + they steal.

I personally went 22 Hillside Mews, Sarisbury Green, Southampton, England, SO31 7LQ, where Matt Beacroft & Kelly Beacroft live.

I knocked on the door several times, no answer. I waited outside a man appeared, I questioned if he was Matt, he denied being Matt and says the Beacrofts live on Northampton.

Later Fairview Sailing confirmed that they know of Matt & Kelly Beacroft and they do indeed live at 22 Hillside Mews.

Sitting on the drive is an £80K RS6 Audi, and a brand new Fiat Abarth. Not sure how you make that sort of money out of maintaining and chartering a few boats.

Our next move is small claims court to recover the money owed.

Below are reviews from other before they were taken down.

OTHERS ON GOOGLE

A very bad experience. Motion Charters took a big deposit for a Cowes week J109 race charter and race entry fee, then took the full sum as contracted with about six weeks to go. We found out with five days to go that the chartered boat was ‘not available’ having been withdrawn by the owner for unspecified reasons, and they tried to move us to another class. Comms were poor, phones not answered.

Was there ever a J109 for me? I suspect not but have no hard proof: they never entered a boat in my name (which at best was an expensive error on their part as the difference between early bird and standard entry is vast) and have failed to reply to questions asking for the boat name so I can avoid that owner in future years.

The refund was then late. 
I wont be using them again. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wasn’t going to post my experience with Motion Charters until I saw Alistair’s post. Frankly he could have written mine. I hasten to add that my J109 2016 RTI race charter with them was great.

Some 6 months after my deposit was paid and only weeks before the 2017 RTI race I too found out the J109 I had chartered wasn’t available. I was told the owner had decided to sell her last minute and that the total lack of communication following that disappointing news was due to the hospitalisation of one of the key staff members (for which I gave great sympathy and understanding and was why I hadn’t posted). We were offered alternative boats, but none that met my requirements / expectations and my deposit was returned.

I know the charter business can be tricky particularly at peak times so I’m not surprised there are some bumps and disappointments along the way… But isn’t that when a company worth its salt demonstrates outstanding customer service, meticulous comms and goes that extra mile in order to rectify these situations?

HR Leave and Absenteeism Management

Would it surprise you to know that the average cost of employee absence from work result to an equivalent of 35% of your employee’s salaries? The net cost of absenteeism in terms of productivity is 19%, according to a study conducted by MERCER. Statistics South Africa estimates that the cost of absenteeism amounts to roughly 12 billion rand per year. In a market that is taking particular strain under the current economic conditions, high rates of absenteeism can cost your company financially as well as through lowered productivity, be it a small company, medium business or a large corporate organisation. While the cost of absenteeism and the corresponding loss of production can be quantified, the issue around how to manage leave and absenteeism within your company is less measureable. With the inevitable split between HR departments and systems and those of payroll, within many organisations, calculating the cost of leave management is an area which is particularly affected as a result.

Leave Management is typically an HR function. Systems need to be put in place so that employee’s absenteeism can be correctly accounted for, accurately managed and effectively monitored. Your human element in your company does not easily align itself to systems and procedures. Humans are more erratic and incidents will happen on a daily basis which will affect the running of your business as a result of absence from work and loss of productivity. HR are the eyes and ears of the business, looking for signs of habitual leave takers and leave abuse but the actual stats of the cost of this will come from your payroll Department or system. Companies with an interest in effectively managing the leave processes will be impressed to finally find a way to perform all of the functions required to manage staff leave, in one united and coherent system.

High Quality Design from dblo Associates

Winston Churchill is referenced with the quote “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.”

Churchill didn’t know it at the time, in 1943 when he made this statement, but he would go on to prove this statement to be irresolutely true, however for all the wrong reasons. When rebuilding the bombed-out House of Commons, Churchill insisted that despite the fact that the old building was too small for the modern needs of its occupants, that the building be erected in precisely that same place with the exact dimensions in which it had previously been structured. The reason being that he felt that the overcrowding would create a sense of urgency which would in turn motivate the politicians to higher levels of productivity. He couldn’t have been more mistaken in that case, however, at the same time, he couldn’t have been more correct. The building did shape the politicians! Just not in the way that he had intended.

Since the beginning of humanity, we have had the indispensable need for shelter. Shelter has provided human beings with safety, warmth, space to home their families and protection from the great outdoors. Human beings have always required a space to keep them and their families safe from the threats of predators on the outside as well as from the elements. Stemming from there humans, have taken time out of their busy lives, to ensure that they have a safe place that is theirs and theirs alone. Further to this, humans have developed a necessity of finding a place to house and keep safe their goods for sale or exchange, stock that they could sell or use to procure what they needed to sustain their families and get a varied of goods that they themselves may not have had the skill or ability to produce or grow themselves.

From humble beginnings, homes and businesses have grown to be more than just places to store people and goods which are precious. Homes and places of business have become more than just the structures or shapes that they have been styled into. Buildings have come to represent who we are, who we have been and where we are going.

dblo architect studio recognises that the buildings that we shape, in turn shape us. With that kind of intensity of outcome for both function and form, whether it is your home or your workplace, we understand the effect that the building will have on your life. Going above and beyond the ability to merely protect you and your loved ones, your home is the ultimate representational display of your being.  With that in mind, it is every aspect of design that becomes the focus point of your build, new or renovated, residential or commercial, community or public. Design is the tool that we use to ensure that every aspect of the building is utilised to its fullest potential and that creative design and high-quality construction enhances the environment and the community giving a sense of place and responsibility.
