You’re viewed as attractive, reliable, relaxed and sincere.A study published in the journal Neuropsychologia reported that seeing an attractive smiling face makes the recipient of that smile feel rewarded.Researchers at the Face Research Laboratory at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, rated smiles and attractiveness. Predictably, they found people were attracted to others who made eye contact and smiled more than those who did not.When you smile, you become an influencer. Did you know that your smile is actually contagious?“In a Swedish study, subjects were shown pictures of several emotions: joy, anger, fear and surprise. When the picture of someone smiling was presented, the researchers asked the subjects to frown. Instead, they found that the facial expressions went directly to imitation of what subjects saw. It took conscious effort to turn that smile upside down. So if you’re smiling at someone, it’s likely they can’t help but smile back,” reports Psychology Today..We bring superheroes to smile.When do you get your superhero Bachmannsmile?Your smile can change the world.Use your smile to change the world; don’t let the world change your smile.”What can we do to make you smile?

Approximately 35% of our population suffer from varicose veins. Varicose veins can lead to leg aching, tiredness, heaviness. Often the long-term problems of swelling, itchiness, leg cramps and ulcers are not recognized as being associated with veins. 

Modern-day treatment is usually non-surgical (injections or laser), and greatly improves a varicose vein sufferer’s quality of life.

Most health insurance companies cover varicose vein treatment but not cosmetic (thread vein) treatment.

At Vein & Laser Dr Elisabeth De Felice will see you for each of your appointments to ensure continuity of care.

Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Friends and family still have no answers a year on

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

During his time in Auckland, Rolland went to the zoo, enjoyed nights out, worked at a popular bar, dabbled in modelling and, with friends, visited Piha on the rugged west coast.

Before his disappearance, Rolland expressed to his family that he wished to visit Piha again, and on March 6 last year, he did just that.

He has not been seen or heard from since.

“Each day we feel more and more worried and more helpless," his father Thierry Rolland tells Stuff.

Hi,
We are looking for a handyman, retired person, apprentice builder or similar ASAP ( next few days) as we have purchased a few items from a house that is going to be demolished and need help taking out what we are wanting to recycle. We have brought pool fencing a french door, 2 skylights a garage door ( possibly) . As its being demolished it should be relatively easy for a skilled person as the frames etc can just be lifted out with no worry about surrounding damage as its all going down anyway. Eventually we'd like help with installation but the priority is getting the items before the bulldozer comes!!!. Please call Jason 0272111568 paulgerj@yahoo.com. We have a trailer and van and can help also. P.S its not our house, we've just purchased used items in the hopes of saving money to do a few things to our house. Good and easy access.
