The Smart Cricket Ball
The Smart Cricket Ball

 

'A smart cricket ball that could revolutionise cricket has been developed by Swinburne researchers. The smart ball uses first-of-its-kind technology as a tool for understanding the mechanics of spin bowling and is being used to optimise spin bowling training.

Until now, the only way for coaches to analyse spin bowlers’ techniques was through video analysis.

The ball has been developed by Swinburne’s Professor Franz Konstantin Fuss and PhD candidate Batdelger Doljin, with assistance from Dr Rene Ferdinands, an ex-first class cricketer and current coach'.

Speaker From Hepatitis Victoria Feb 25, 2020
New Rotary Program: End Hepatitis Now
New Rotary Program: End Hepatitis Now

 

Did you know that viral hepatitis affects almost half a million Australians and that, in Victoria, about 6 people die every week of hepatitis related causes - more than the State’s road toll? 

Hepatitis Victoria and Rotary Melbourne have joined to achieve the World Health Organisation’s goal of eliminating viral hepatitis by 2030. 

With a cure now available for hepatitis C and a vaccination for hepatitis B, this global goal is achievable if community awareness can be raised. 

A Hepatitis Victoria educator and a lived experience public speaker will present at the meeting on Tuesday 25 February to raise awareness, address the problem of stigma and discrimination in the community and encourage people to seek testing and treatment.

Chair: Kevin Rose

The NBN In Our Area
The NBN In Our Area

 

Back By Popular Demand!  The NNB will be installed in our area around this time...you may have further questions for Wally.

Wally is  part of the nbn local Community Affairs team in Melbourne.

He writes:   'My role is to meet with local community and residential groups to help educate them about nbn and what it means for them. The purpose of this initiative is to ensure the community has all the necessary information during the rollout of the nbn network and have the ability and a forum to ask any questions and troubleshoot any problems you might have.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A that covers some critical areas such as: • What is nbn • What it means for the members and how to connect • How the nbn affects your existing landline phone and medical alarms • Power outages • Scams to be wary of.

*Just to clarify, this service is purely for the benefit for the members. We are not here to sell anything as the nbn is the wholesaler (not a phone or internet provider). ' *
