Basic Technology Course for 60+

Most of my career I have been working with and in blue chip technology companies. As an IT Program Manager, encountering so many diverse technologies can be overwhelming but as one learns to take one step at a time, a person becomes used to the new technology and we then embrace its benefits and become a real fan for what it can do.

In my social group I am in regular contact with those older than myself who are bright, engaging and active. However when it comes to their iPad, tablet, laptop or smartphone these devices can seem very overwhelming and a sense of pain crosses over their eyes as these devices hold so much promise for them but can be such a massive wall to climb just to do the basics.

So I would like to offer an 12-lesson basic tech course to help Mom and Dad or Grandma and Grandpa to grasp the basics of their own technology. The idea of these classes is for each one to bring to class their preferred technology (smartphone/tablet/laptop) and then to step through the basics of how it works, what it needs to be connected to and what Apps or software is needed.

The course designed by myself and is to help you to understand how to use your own technology comfortably and the various applications such as Skype, email, WhatsApp, Zoom, FaceTime, the internet and office explorer files and more.

The first day of the course is an overview and the journey we will take together. This first day is free for you to decide if this is something you would like to take on over the next 12 lessons with no obligation. This course will commence 3 July 2020.

I am based in Browns Bay and training will take place in a comfortable homely environment in a classroom style set up to optimise training. Notes will be provided after each lesson.

This course will run twice weekly and is $20 + Gst a lesson and anyone can stop and join at any time. As mentioned above the first lesson is free. There is no need to pay for a full course only pay for the day you attend. Once you have completed the course in full, you will be presented with a certificate of completion of Technology - The Basics 1. A nice to have if you want to venture to start working again or to show your friends.

This will run during the day on a twice weekly basis for 1.30hrs (90 minutes). If you are interested or would like to sign up a relative, contact me on email: Gavin.tipping@outlook.com and I will provide you with precise details of the course.

The 21st of March seems like it was only yesterday but boy oh boy do we feel about 10 years older.

When we had word that we had been chosen to transform into a community based assessment centre (CBAC) it was all go to get Northcross ready within 48 hours to start the testing process.

After a few teething problems and being over run with calls at times, our appointment based system really proved to be a winner allowing us to test over 9000 North Shore and Rodney locals.

A big thank you to our community for your continued support throughout our time as a CBAC.

Our extremely hard working team have appreciated every kind word over the last three months and are looking forward to getting back to our normal.

AN UPDATE FROM NEW IMAGE CHAIRMAN, GRAEME CLEGG...

You owe your existence to a robust immune system!
Never take it for granted.

Daily, your body is engaged in an intense life and death battle with deadly pathogens in the environment - just like your ancestors did to survive and enable you to be here today and enjoying a lifespan.

Decisions we make around nutrition must have considerable thought as consequences will be inevitable. Good or bad.

Everything we put into our bodies must be to satisfy nutritional requirements, and not just hunger.

The body’s immune system is the “supercomputer”, simultaneously managing a multitude of biological tasks.

Just one of the thousands of functions, is bacterial and viral defence.

It is the one, we have actually the most influence over!

The Covid-19 epidemic has shocked the world, catching governments and medical experts totally under prepared, despite many historical warnings every generation or two has faced.

What we are experiencing was inevitable and New Image™ has been advocating consequences since day one.

It is a personal responsibility to protect ourselves.

The epidemic is exploding out of control, as predicted due to poor medical facilities, corrupt governments, and poverty.

Over 100,000 new cases a day.

Due to the fore mentioned issues, Covid-19 will unlikely be eliminated, so we will have no choice but to learn to live with it.

We will also have to learn to survive in the different global commercial environment forced upon us, through lockdowns, travel restrictions and unemployment.

It is not going to be easy to adjust, but just like our forebearers, there will be those that adapt, make the right decisions, and take control of their lives.

Let’s focus more now on the huge percentage of survivors, and the vast numbers that may have been exposed to the virus with no symptoms, as their immune system immediately recognised the invader and wiped it out before it could get established.

A little intervention can save a life and even prolong it.

Colostrum is a unique life force!

It is mother nature’s gift and the most powerful weapon against infections we know.

It contains every life force that blood plasma contains, including in some cases, extra reinforcements. Being immune multi-functionally, it can address much of the collateral damage that can be inflicted by disease and infection.

It is apparent that it reinstates programming of the immune system, restoring it to optimum performance. There is no other ingredient that is compatible to every cell in the body.

New Image™ has invested heavily over the years in research, as we are seriously committed to validating that our products neutralise most of the bacteria and viruses that pose serious risks of infection.

We will continue to be leaders, so stay connected for regular, further impending announcements in this area.
