As more mature people are often either new to technology or unsure of some aspects of using their devices, Create Your Change can cover the basics – how to navigate your device (both Apple and Android), and/or things like Online Shopping, Online Security, how to use Zoom for video chats, Facebook, Instagram and other social media, and any other topics that may be requested.
All of this information and advice is provided tonight was for free, thanks to a grant from a Government initiative called Be Connected.
The Intestinal Nutrient Sensing Group, led by A/Prof Richard Young, investigates the intestinal taste system, which detects dietary sugars and low-calorie sweeteners and, in turn, controls how glucose is absorbed and disposed in the body. PARC Clinical Research is a University of Adelaide based research group conducting early phase clinical trials and specialised research into multiple disciplines, led by Professor Guy Ludbrook.
Our guest speaker was Rotarian Mark Clemow from the Rotary Club of Mount Barker who heads up the RORP (Rotary Overseas Recycled Playgrounds) program here in South Australia. The Playgrounds that have reached their “use by date” here in Australia are being replaced by councils & schools with new ones. The old ones are going into landfill. Those Playgrounds are still usable and can benefit children in countries like Sri Lanka and throughout South East Asia. The program was started in 2019 by Rotary in Victoria, and so far, they have recycled 50 playgrounds. There are 2000 Playgrounds marked for replacement per annum in Australia. Club liaison with the local Council is essential to identify the Playgrounds marked for replacement. Each part needs to be identified and marked for reassembly before being shipped overseas. The shipping will be done through Donations in Kind (DIK) and the reassembly will be overseen by the local Rotary Club.
This is a “Hands On” project that’s a WIN-WIN! as it will reduce landfill waste here in Australia and gives the simple joy of play to children of the world.
