Friday, December 2, 2005 The Australian Federal Opposition has hounded the Treasurer, Peter Costello, over the appointment of Robert Gerard to the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) board. Mr Gerard announced on Friday 2nd that he will resign from the Board, citing the events of this week as the reason.

On Tuesday, November 29, Wayne Swan, the Shadow Treasurer asked of Costello in the first question of Question Time about an apparent statement that Costello made to Gerard, namely, “I know there’s an issue with the Tax Office but I don’t have a problem with you on the board”. Costello responded that he had no problem with Gerard, noting that “he brings a great understanding of Australian manufacturing industry to the board”, and that the obligatory declaration of interest was “indeed was signed by Mr Gerard”.

Later it was said by Swan in the House of Representatives that Gerard’s company was using “tax havens as tax avoidance schemes to the value of $150 million” and that the declaration of interest mentioned was only in regard to his personal affairs and on asking the Treasurer when he knew this, claimed that him actually knowing the information “would breach the secrecy act”. Later Swan revealed that Gerard “and his corporate vehicles” have been “susbtantial donors” to the Liberal Party. Costello maintained that the Government “[does] not think that supporting the Liberal Party is a disqualification from holding ministerial office, prime ministerial office, Treasury office or other offices in Australia”

Swan moved a censure motion to “provide this House with a full and proper explanation of…his communications with Mr Robert Gerard…and his knowledge of Mr Robert Gerard’s dispute with the Australian Taxation Office…”, which failed in the Government’s favour with votes 83 to 59 in division.

On Wednesday, November 30, Swan opened the House in a movement to suspend standing orders again to get information from the Treasurer, stating that “The Treasurer is in real strife” before the Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer moved the gag. In Question Time, the Opposition continued to ask every question in regard to the appointment of Gerard. The Leader of the Opposition Kim Beazley revealed in his question to the Treasurer that “some of his cabinet colleagues have privately said that they did not consider Mr Gerard was ‘a good choice’ in the first place for the Reserve Bank board”. The Treasurer responded that Gerard’s “appointment was supported by all members of the cabinet”

In the subsequent Matters of Public Importance debate, the matter selected was that proposed by Wayne Swan, namely, “The need for the Treasurer to uphold the highest standards of probity in the selection of candidates for the Reserve Bank Board.”

On Thursday, December 1, the Opposition again reserved a number of its questions for inquiring about Gerard’s appointment. Swan revealed in a question to the Treasurer that Gerard Corporation had “acquired an investment company in the tax haven of the British Virgin Islands eight months after the Treasurer recommended his appointment to the Reserve Bank board”. Costello responded to Swan referring him to “a statement about that allegation in the Australian Financial Review today…in which he makes it clear that no income has been derived.”

Later, the Leader of the Opposition tried to move a censure motion on the treasurer, but leave of the House was not granted, so he had to resort to moving a motion to suspend standing orders to move the same motion, to censure the Treasurer for his appointment. The motion failed due to Government numbers, but the Matters for Public Importance (which follows Question Time) which was selected as “The need for the Government to govern for all Australians not just a privileged few.” in order to draw a comparison with the unequal treatment of the Treasurer in supporting Gerard and the new industrial relations legislation, dubbed WorkChoices, and said how the Treasurer and the Prime Minister were “laughing up their sleeves”, that the Treasurer was “not fit to lead”, and Gerard “is the worst attendee on the Reserve Bank board.”

The Minister for Workplace Relations, Kevin Andrews, however focused elsewhere on the MPI, and drew the attention of the Australian Labor Party‘s ties to the unions, had described the Opposition as a “policy free zone”, said that “there is one group that represents privilege in this place and that is the Australian Labor Party”, and stressed the benefits of WorkChoices.

Craig Emerson noted that the Queensland branch of the Liberal Party participated in “deliberate tax evasion”, and that Mr Gerard “paid penalty tax in circumstances of deliberate tax evasion”. Emerson later said that the Liberal Party was “soft on tax cheats”, “soft on tax cheating Liberal Party donors…and members”.

The adjournment debate also brought up criticism of Gerard’s appointment in the adjournment debate. Christopher Bowen noted the “disquiet” in the media, and noted the previous Board member Bernie Fraser also calling for his dismissal. Bernard Ripoll called for a “full inquiry” into the Government’s “self serving public policy”.

Swan has said that Gerard had done the “honourable thing”, but that he will not let up on pressing the Treasurer for a full disclosal of the facts.

The House of Representatives as of this date sits next on December 5, 2005.

Israeli firm Environmental Energy Resources (EER) has announced that it has developed a new technology, plasma gasification melting technology (PGM), to safely dispose of low- and medium-level nuclear waste. Extremely high temperatures are used to turn the waste into a mildly radioactive glass-like substance, which can be used as a building material. The process also releases an extremely hot mixture of gases that can be used to power steam turbines, generating electricity. The company claims that 70% of this electricity is used to drive the PGM process, while 30% is available as exportable energy.

To create a website that attracts as well as successfully completes the expectation is a challenge. A website design and development carries the ability of its developer.

One may have to face various obstacles while creating a relevant web design. The designer also has to ensure that it allows the visitors to hold on to the website.

Trust Venture International is and Singapore-based Website design and development offer quality that can make your website credible.

If you are really looking for ways to develop a remarkable web design,

Take a look at these 10 quick points about website design and development:

1. Planning Before Initiating

Once you begin with a project, having a plan about your process can be very useful. Customer gratification is the most important aspect of any business. Planning your work that covers all the major elements will develop a quality web design.

Plan your work step by step:

Have a study about your clients business.

A thorough understanding of your clients expectations.

Going through the trend around the market.

Note down the works by your competitors, so that you can come out with a better result.

Create a perception of the design in your mind.

Start your web development.

It might be a difficult process to go through, but it is worthy enough to have a pre-planning process.

2. Effective Communication

The ability to communicate your idea to the client can ensure your quality. It is an important aspect during a web design and development process.

Your ability to execute your work is expressed through your communication with the client. A web designer must be able to explain the idea behind the design he preferred and its relevance in the business.

This way you can ensure the trust of the client. There may be some kind of rough discourses, but explaining your work intellectually will bring importance to your idea. You must be able to communicate your thought with accuracy to gain the clients attention.

An effective communication will help your work to get accepted.

3. A professional design and logo

There are very fewer web designs that assure visitors. The problem of these websites is their performance. Your web design must be able to connect with the visitors. Moreover, they must communicate and deliver the needs of your customer.

A professional logo expresses your intention and vision. Developing a logo includes various concerns.

The logo must agree with the companys attitude.

It must have all the professional elements.

A logo should represent the company in front of the visitor.

Placement of the logo can grab the attention of the visitor easily.

It should be understandable.

A design that emphasizes on quality and logo and displays the companys intention has the potential of an excellent web design and development.

4. Dont Clutter Up

Adding visuals to increase attraction may be a good idea. Many websites follow this idea to make the visitors stay on the landing page.

Simply cluttering the website doesnt generate visitors. In fact, it irritates them. Gathering different images and pasting it over the spaces makes the website look awkward. The website gets crammed and fails to express the idea of your business.

A website must be able to express its purpose effectively without visuals claiming the idea. A perfect web design is the one that allows the user to gain easy accessibility to all the functions of the company.

5. Arrangement Of Texts And Images

A web designing that gathers viewers has a well-managed display of texts and images.

When a visitor approaches your website, he looks for accessibility to your functions. He may look to understand your purpose. A creative web design represents these ideas through texts and images that are arranged efficiently.

Images that crammed and are overlapping, can cause a distraction to the visitor.

The texts must be placed with gaps having a readable arrangement. The presentation of both these elements must not cause a visitor any difficulty in understanding the business.

6. Give Importance To Every Page

A careless web designer may give his best only while developing the landing page. Many consider that its the home page that talks to the customers, so they add less efficiency to other pages. A web designer should focus on developing each and every page of a website with effective accessibility.

A visitor opting to open a website may land on any page, not necessarily that could be the homepage. Therefore, a web design and development must successfully represent the company throughout the pages in a website.

Leaving any page with less efficiency may cause you lose a visitor who could have been your customer.

7. Be Acquainted With All The New Technologies

Trends in the technology are gaining pace with development. The changes are also applicable in the field of web design and development. Being a web designer, you must be aware of all the new forms of technologies in the field.

Using them to create your website will help you with better results. To make this possible, study and learn about all the new technologies trending around the market.

Keep a track of all the new trends that have been successful, simultaneously also about those that are failing to create an impression.

This will help to compete with your competitors and come out with better performance.

8. Make Navigation Simple

Having a lot of functions and options may sometimes make the navigation difficult. Try understanding the relevance of each access provided and choose whats really necessary.

Avoid unnecessary drop-down menus and other multi-tier drop downs for easy and simple navigation. Lessen the links for the visitors to notice the needed part of the website.

Enabling the visitors with too many options may make navigation annoying. Simplify the process. Exhibit the most productive content for the visitor.

9. Stay Organized

Conducting a work with efficiency requires organized practices. Make a list to perform every aspect according to time and requirement. Web designing has several stages and parts that need to be created accurately.

A failure in organizing them appropriately will lead to a poor web design. You need to organize the major files, pictures, videos and texts to different folders and name them accordingly.

10. Evaluation Of Your Work

When the process of web development concludes, you need to ensure your work. Its important that the web design doesnt possess any error. You must be able to judge your own work. Go for an evaluation.

Try questioning and analyzing each part of the design; it will help in ensuring your web development process. Otherwise, going for a feedback process is a good approach to confirm the web design.

Measure your work quality through the feedbacks obtained. Allowing others to analyze your work can bring errors in light. The most imperative part is to see whether the website stays with its purpose or not.

Conclusion

A good web design and development is one that covers all the aspects to grab the visitors attention. The above mentioned tips can help you understand the major problems and how to improve it.
