The Happiness Guide Chapter 7 – Material Change

威廉希尔赔率分析By Lynne Blundell

20 May 2014 — A new tenant is moving in, so it’s in with the new and out with the old. And it’s not just the tenant we’re talking about – the office fittings are most likely going the same way.

More often than not they’ll end up in landfill at great expense to all involved, not to mention the environment. Oh, and our health, if there are any undesirable substances in the fittings that might leach into the soil, air and water.

The Sustainability Salon for Perth and WA ebook

威廉希尔赔率分析18 December 2013 — On 7 November 2013, The Fifth Estate, with the help of our sponsors, hosted the Sustainability Salon for Perth and Western Australia.

威廉希尔赔率分析Our objective was to better understand how Perth and WA could transform the benefits of one of the most extraordinary resources booms in Australia’s history into something truly valuable and enduring – in other words, sustainable.

It’s clear the west has a golden opportunity to achieve whatever it wants.

威廉希尔赔率分析The state still contains a store of natural resources that is the envy of the world and will contribute to the nation for years to come.

The opportunity is for Perth to become a vibrant global hub. One that could transpose the wealth coming from resources into more complex economic and social fabric. The potential is to carve a great future for its people, including the huge numbers still arriving at the rate of 1000 people a week, bringing with them demands for housing, services and a hunger for social and economic rewards.

The Happiness Guide: Chapter 4 – Getting the pre-nups right

By Tina Perinotto

威廉希尔赔率分析10 October 2013 — Introducing Chapter 4 of The Tenants and Landlords Guide to Happiness, a guide to best practice and green leasing.

Wow, this is the really scary bit. The heads of agreement stage. It’s the iconic visual image we all have of the lawyers striding through the city, wigs and gowns flying in the wind. Where are they going? Whose lives or business are they about to poke and prod for their individual pleasure?

The Happiness Guide: Chapter 3 – Getting together

威廉希尔赔率分析By Tina Perinotto

4 September 2013 — We love this chapter three. And not just because it rhymes with the birds and the bees, but because this is about “Getting Together”.

You’ve assessed the old talent (office) and done some sums – financial and metaphorical – and decided to move on.

Now it’s time to consider all the other options.
威廉希尔赔率分析 What this chapter does is brings to the foreground the sometimes subtle but more often powerful influences that come to play from “other parties”. The third parties that somehow create the glue that binds, or the influences that slides the deal asunder.

The Happiness Guide: Chapter 2 – Should I stay or should I go?

By Tina Perinotto

7 August 2013 — Well, you and the relationship are doing just fine. There you are, happy landlord, and there’s the tenant, plugging away at their business. Suddenly, before anyone can say boo, it’s lease renegotiation time. Up comes that little bit of paper you both signed at the start of this commitment and in it was the review period. Just like real life, when you think about it. Except perhaps a little more organised and planned.
