There are some clear differences between the two meanings of Fire in Japanese: 火 (ひ — flame, firelight) vs 火事 (かじ — on fire, ablaze)

Learn how you can get through any challenge in your life by changing your mindset and thinking positively.

When a roadblock comes in your way, stopping you from getting something that you want, it’s all about your mindset and how you react to change that determines how you’ll recover from things that you think are impacting you.

Every challenge is an opportunity. If you work through challenges, you’ll find you create and innovate in new ways you didn’t even think were possible.

When change impacts you, you might be feeling:

  • “It’s now hard for me to achieve my dreams and goals”
  • “I’m feeling depressed or upset”
  • “I’ve already put in so much effort and now this has made…

On 2nd March 2021, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia approved Apple to use an electrocardiagram (also called an ECG or EKG) app in the Apple Watch.

There’s some important considerations, and a release date is not yet confirmed, however this is good news for Apple Watch users.

Many people have also delayed buying an Apple Watch, specifically for the release of these new health apps.

The ECG app has been available in many countries worldwide on most Apple Watch versions, since the release of Apple Watch 4 in September 2018.

The ECG app can record your heartbeat and…


As a WordPress developer, sometimes we might need to create a custom post type and set a Subscriber as the Post Author.

For an example, I created a Subscriber.

Add this snippet to functions.php or somewhere else in your plugin file.

// Show all users in 'author' drop down on editoradd_filter( 'wp_dropdown_users_args', function( $query_args, $r ) {$query_args['who'] = '';return $query_args;}, 10, 2 );

The result is that ALL users now appear (including subscribers) in wherever the Post Author should normally appear, in this example — the ‘Quick Editor’.


There’s a few different reasons you might buy a new iPad:

  • An ‘always’ device: something you’ll use for work and communication.
  • A ‘sometimes’ device: occasional reading, creative work or play time.

If you’re planning to use the iPad often, it could be very helpful to have iMessages and FaceTime configured and synchronised across all devices.

However, if you’re planning to use your iPad during your down-time, it’s better to turn off distracting notifications and unnecessary alerts.

Of course, you could simply turn off the notifications, but sometimes you might want to stop snooping friends or family from accessing your messages…


One of the most common requests I get from people I know is them asking for my help to format their resume.

I don’t necessarily think that I’m an expert in Resumes, and I certainly don’t think mine is the best format, but I have spent a lot of time helping others.

When designing anything in life, you need to think about your audience.

Remember, your CV shouldn’t be too much about your ego, but more about facts — your work experience, your capability and achievements.

You can also add your personality, depending on the situation.

What type of Resume is best?

It can be very…
