I greatly admire the amazing work Associate Professor Wright is doing for HIV prevention in Australia. I urge you to watch this well balanced report on PrEP, also known as Truvada.
Great video that explains PrEP for HIV prevention in a clear and non hyped way. I highly recommend review this as well as links for more information on PrEP

Great haircut and beard trim. I'm always pleased after getting tidied up by Gus. Highly recommended.

Poor phone support and a clear lack of empathy or desire to solve a problem after dangerous issues with a damaged Macbook Pro. Even after contact from Apple USA, the Apple team had to phone me back to report that the staff at Ubertec had flatly refused to offer assistance. I feel this company does not meet the standard of a "premium" Apple repair store.

I have work done by Matty at Dynamic Tattoo. He was very easy to work with and his Japanese style is fantastic. Over an 8 month period I had a set of Japanese pants made and I am very happy with the result. Trevor the owner was great to talk with and the vibe of the studio is laid back with good music and a the typical banter between the team. I highly recommend Dynamic tattoo and be sure to let them know that Dr George sent you.

Serge was very helpful with what was ultimately a very difficult fridge to diagnose it's problem. There were more then six visits involved over a three week period however my fridge is now working perfectly. His persistence did pay off despite both our frustrations as to why the fridge was not doing it's job.

I have now had the fortune to attend two workshops organised and held by the team @ Eagle Leather. Both trainings were exceptional. First was by Eagle's BJ on Kinbaku bondage and impact play. The sessions where highly interactive, hands on and very enjoyable. Second was with international guests on interrogation play. Certainly an interesting session and it's great to see international experts being brought in to share their skills. If you have an opportunity to attend a workshop held by the Eagle Leather team I highly recommend taking the time.

This pharmacy is nice and close to where I work and I've found the service to be very good. They are well stocked. On one occasion they did not have the medicine I needed on hand but had it in the next day for me. I've found the pharmacist to be friendly and they had a good understanding for offering the best product for my needs. One of the good pharmacies on this end of Bourke St. I am happy to recommend them.
