All types of events including music festivals, sporting events, community events, cultural and commemorative events will compete for public votes with the winner announced at the Australian Event Awards presentation in October.This new initiative complements and builds on the existing Australian Event Awards program according to Jeremy Miller, Executive Producer of the Awards. “The Australian Event Awards is a search for innovation and excellence in events, judged by a panel of industry experts. Australia’s Favourite Event is the public’s chance to name their most popular event, the event that engages them, that earns their devotion and support. We’re excited to hear what the public have to say about the events that they love,” Miller said.Entrants in the Australian Event Awards will access a simple, ‘one click’ nomination for Australia’s Favourite Event and will receive the advantage of an exclusive voting kit with marketing materials to help gather votes for their event.“As soon as their Australian Event Award entry is submitted they’ll have everything they need to prepare for when public voting opens for Australia’s Favourite Event on August 5th. Events that haven’t entered the Australian Event Awards can also nominate but they will miss out on this head start,” Miller explained.There is no cost to nominate for Australia’s Favourite Event.Australia’s Favourite Event will be announced at the 2010 Australian Event Awards Industry Night of Nights, to be held at Sydney Olympic Park on 7th October 2010. Australia’s Favourite Event is a public voting award as part of the Australian Event Awards. The 2010 Australian Event Awards is the national awards program to reward innovation and recognise excellence across the entire Australian Events Industry.The Australian Event Award entry process is simple, inexpensive and judged by an independent industry panel. Entries close on 26th July 2010. Source = Australian Event Awards
The weather outlook on PSO J318.5-22 is cloudy and hot, with dust storms and the chance of showers—of molten iron. That forecast, according to a team of astronomers using the European Southern Observatory’s New Technology Telescope in Chile, is the first identification of weather on a planet outside our solar system. But PSO J318.5-22 is no ordinary planet. Discovered in 2013, it’s a “rogue planet”: an extrasolar object that doesn’t orbit around a star. It could have been gravitationally ejected from a stellar system, or formed on its own by some other method. But being isolated means that astronomers can detect its light directly without it being drowned out by a star’s glare. The astronomers took hundreds of infrared pictures of PSO J318.5-22, which is a gas giant like our Jupiter but with eight times the mass. As they report in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, shifts in its brightness reveal that PSO J318.5-22 is rotating every 5 hours and has multiple layers of thick and thin clouds with temperatures of about 800°C. The researchers say this shows that clouds are probably ubiquitous in planetary objects. They hope their technique will eventually produce weather reports for gas giants orbiting distant stars and, one day, rocky exoplanets similar to our own.
