Most of us have heard the terms cryptocurrency or Bitcoin, but do we really understand what it all means?
Local businessman Andy Murphy and his cousin Richelle Kelly were propelled to help us answer that question and formed Satoshiware NQ,  a startup that helps businesses and individuals take advantage of the borderless benefits offered by Bitcoin Cash.

HEAR : Lady Gaga

I'm fallin' / in all the good times / I find myself longing for change /
and in the bad times I fear myself /
I'm off the deep end / watch as I dive in /
I'll never meet the ground / crash through the surface /
where they can't hurt us/ we're far from the shallow now
This is the fourth version of A Star is Born, with versions made in 1937, 1954, 1976 and now 2018, probably because it’s an irresistible story! 
Only the fashions have changed, but the gist of all four flicks is a famous guy whose fame is fading, and the woman he’s with whose star is on the rise.
What’s amazing about this version are the music scenes, filmed live at Coachella (along with fans who entered via an app and were told to wear their most comfortable denim and boots), the Saturday Night Live set, the Glastonbury festival in the U.K, plus a couple of other theatres in the U.S. where the stars jumped on stage between the actual acts and filmed it in one take.

TASTE : Hollandaise Hack

OK breakfast places, we need to talk.
Not naming names, but after yet another Townsville brekky with eggs that arrived smothered in that faker-than-fake Hollandaise sauce that comes pre-made in a BUCKET – it’s time we said,
‘C’mon kitchen guys, lift your game!’
It’s not Hollandaise sauce, it’s not even close, so they shouldn’t be calling it that.
Far better to say ‘Eggs Benedict in crappy cheap-ass fake Hollandaise sauce that bears no resemblance to the real thing but we don’t care, so we hope you don’t either.’
Oh but since we DO care, here’s a short-cut recipe that even the busiest chef can manage to whip up – you make it in a blender and it’s not hard at all, it’s actually real Hollandaise sauce and it tastes absolutely amazing – kind of what we’re looking for when we buy our breakfast, right?



 3 egg yolks
¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon lemon juice
a dash of Tabasco or other hot sauce
125g butter
  1. In the container of a blender, combine the egg yolks, mustard, lemon juice and Tabasco. Cover and blend for about 5 seconds.
  2. Place the butter in a glass measuring cup. Heat butter in the microwave for about 1 minute or until completely melted and hot.
  3. Set the blender on high speed and pour the butter into the egg yolk mixture in a thin stream. It should thicken almost immediately. Keep the sauce warm until serving by placing the blender container in a bowl or pot of hot tap water.

BEAUTY  :  Soft focus
MAC Cosmetics have just released Powder Kiss lipstick, a weightless, moisture-matte, romantic blur of soft-focus colour. It was developed to mimic the backstage technique of blurring out the edges of lipstick, and the result is the zero-shine look of a matte lipstick with the cushiony, lightweight feel of a balm. There are 16 shades, and at RRP $36, it’s an affordable update to your makeup wardrobe!
