What is the Best Printer to Buy this Year in the Pre-Christmas Sales?

It’s rumoured that one of the most popular Christmas gifts this year for students is a new printer to facilitate the printing of their assignments and boarding passes for their well earn half-term trips! On a serious note, the home printer is a practical Christmas gift for any household, and one that is becoming more and more common.

If we are choosing a printer as a gift there are several factors to consider. Firstly, the printer will need to suit the needs of the user, if it’s a home user then the printer will probably need to be colour and be able to print, scan and copy. The print speed of this printer may not be that important, but, the cost of the ink cartridges certainly will. In fact, one of the most important factors when considering buying a printer as a gift is, the running cost for the person who receives the printer. It might be OK to buy a bargain printer for a friend or loved one, but, if the running costs are astronomical then any good intentions on the part of the buyer are soon lost.

There are a couple of good tips to consider before purchasing the printer, for example, how much will the replacement ink cartridges cost and more importantly, will the printer accept compatible ink cartridges? This information will be available from any good ink seller and is very important, as some printers are more prone to rejecting compatible ink cartridges than others. What are the best printers to consider this year?

Well, we think that if you consider buying the Epson Expression XP range then you won’t go far wrong. This all-in-one range of printers is perfect for the home user or small office. They accept four individual ink cartridges, black, cyan, magenta and yellow and are all individually replaceable which makes it more cost effective than having to replace a full set of cartridges. The Epson printers are also known to be compatible ink friendly and do not give any real issues when it comes to accepting them.

Also, this time of the year lends itself to real bargains when it comes to printers’ as the more popular Christmas gifts are more likely to be TV’s or iPhones. Of course, Epson aren’t the only printers available but to give a more balanced view we also recommend Canon and Brother printers as good presents as they too will offer good value when used with compatible replacement cartridges. So, to give the perfect Christmas gift this year why not give a printer that has all the facilities that modern day life requires such as wireless printing and will be cost effective to run.

Check out my latest article if you’re looking for the best printer as a perfect Christmas gift this year. Epson Expression XP, can be the one for your home or student in your family. This small all-in-one printer, saves a lot of printing cost for users by accepting compatible ink cartridges.

Ways To Celebrate Stress Awareness Day This Year

This year to help celebrate Stress Awareness Month try sending out free e-cards to colleagues or friends alike. E cards make celebrating Stress Awareness Month that bit easier in April, as with e-cards you no longer have to worry about going to the shop and buying a card, but you can log onto the internet and send a free e-card.

April has been named Stress Awareness Month since 1993, courtesy of the Health Resource Network, which also sponsors Stress Awareness Day. The date of Stress Awareness Day was chosen for a reason: taxes are due on April 15th, and completing the forms on time is enough to stress anyone out!

Stress, a term for the physical and mental symptoms caused by conflicts and specific problems, may be considered a fact of life, but according to statistics collected in highly industrialized countries, it almost qualifies as an epidemic.

There are infinite possibilities for what causes stress, from over-working to having excessive demands on your time. Not only does stress diminish productivity, motivation, and concentration, result in chronic physical manifestations such as headaches, but also saps energy.

Being stressed out, which translates into tense, angry, and/or despondent behavior, negatively affects your mental and physical health, which is why the focus of Stress Awareness Day is educating people about how to deal with stress to avoid its dangerous consequences.

To most effectively deal with the stress factors in your life, the Health Resource Network recommends that you identify the precise issues that are causing you frustration or pain, for example relationship anxiety, work-related pressures, and having too many simultaneous commitments.

By getting to the root of those specific problems, you can literally dismantle the stress that you experience bit by bit.

When you find yourself becoming anxious, edgy, or unhappy due to the external factors in your life, such as interaction with the people around you, your routine and obligations, try to figure out exactly what is bothering you and find a way to fix those problems instead of escaping from them by turning your attention elsewhere.

Ignoring a problem, no matter how insignificant often leads to its persistence. So deal with stress, and have a relaxing Stress Awareness Day!

A similar observance, called National Stress Awareness Day, is observed in Britain on November 1st.

A person experiencing continual stress is more likely to smoke cigarettes, consume more than a casual amount of alcohol, overeat, or commit suicide. Stress also can be a significant factor in the development of heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, and have negative impact on the immune system.

Millions of people send free e-cards each year, and now loads of people celebrate Stress Awareness Month by sending free e-cards. You no longer have to worry about running out of ink, or leaving it to late to send your card, as all you have to do is type your message and click send. Then your free e-card will arrive almost instantly to its recipient. Free e-cards truly are the easiest way to celebrate any holidays or birthdays.

Cairns Great Barrier Reef: Great Scuba dive conditions all year round

Welcome to tropical Queensland where sunny skies and warm waters beckon. There literally is no bad time to visit the Great Barrier Reef and experience some fantastic dives. Cairns, at the northern end of the reef, is the ideal destination for diving all-year round, but if you’re looking at the best Great Barrier Reef scuba diving season with excellent conditions, August through to January is the way to go!

The Minke whales season runs from June to August, while the Humpback whales migrate between June and November. Coral spawning, on the other hand, usually occurs in October and November; so if you have any of these on your must-see list, then make sure you plan your dives for those seasons.

If you’re not a hot-shot diver but you still want to experience everything the Great Barrier Reef has to offer, then Cairns is just the place for you. With its proximity to fantastic dive sites on the Great Barrier Reef and the mushrooming of authorised dive centres in every nook and corner, Cairns has the highest number of beginner divers getting their Padi Open Water certification.

A word of caution though – not all dive centres provide the same quality and service. So, it would be best if you surveyed the market, see what various dive centres offer, compare costs and inclusions and make an informed decision about the operator you choose to dive with. You will also need to get a medical certificate before commencing scuba diving lessons. But, even if you’ve arrived in Cairns unprepared, you could just as easily get a local doctor to run a physical that will certify you to go ahead with dive lessons.

These courses are not just about finding your sea legs… to get the Padi Open Water certification, you need a minimum of four days, so that’s something you’ll have to be prepared for. Most of these dive courses get you comfortable in a swimming pool before you head out to the reef for three days of diving. And, that’s when you’ll really find your sea legs!

The water temperature on the Great Barrier Reef ranges between 25°C to 30°C at local dive sites with a gentle current and visibility between 5 and 20 metres. Most of these dive sites are suitable for beginner divers and don’t go below a depth of 20 metres.

However, more experienced divers find it more challenging to head out the Ribbon or the Osprey Reefs where the current is fiercer, walls are deeper and visibility is almost up to 40 metres, sending your thrill-o-metre to an all-time high!

There’s nothing like an unadulterated Cairns Great Barrier Reef cruises and dive experiences with a liveaboard dive trip. Offering two to three days of sheer diving fun, these liveaboard dive vessels take you to some of the reef’s most remote and exotic dive sites. Depending on your budget and passion for scuba diving, you could choose between luxury dive boats, to research vessels to smaller personalised vessels… the variety is simply there for the taking!

Or, you could choose to stay at any of the Great Barrier Reef island resorts that offer superb diving opportunities, some right off the beach. Green Island, Heron Island and Lady Elliot Islands are beautiful coral cays that are ideal for Great Barrier Reef snorkelling and diving for novice and experienced divers. You could also make day trips out to the reef and enjoy two or more dives in different locations.

So, what’re you waiting for? Great Barrier Reef tours definitely top the list of things to do in Cairns; so go for it and experience the adventure of a lifetime!

Tom John has taken a step back from his job as a mainstream journalist in Sydney to pursue his passion for travel and adventure.
