Brisbane Running Tours – Sightrunning in Brisbane

Whilst I loved my time scoping, developing and delivering medical training solutions I’ve now moved away from a career in science to follow my passion for healthy living.

I’m really excited to announce Brisbane Running Tours as one part of this progression.

Brisbane Running Tours offers you the opportunity to explore the history and culture of the exciting city that I live in. The sightrunning (or sight running) tours run on a regular scheduled time table or additionally can be arranged at any time to suit your needs. We also offer tours of our local trails if you would like to escape the city.

We would love to show you our city. Follow the link below to view the Brisbane Running Tours website or find Brisbane Running Tours Facebook.

shoots&roots – Healthy food for active people

I’m really excited to be able to announce shoots&roots. My partner and I are advocates of healthy living and we believe this can’t be achieved through exercise alone. Healthy living encompasses how we go about our daily lives. Healthy living is not a fad diet or a month of detox. It must fit with and be part of our day to day lives; a lifestyle, not be a chore.

At shoots&roots we offer you insights and food to fuel your healthy, active lifestyle. We offer products that will help to change your mindset and show you healthy should be tasty too! We won’t leave you longing for more and we will satisfy your sporting nutrition needs. At shoots&roots, we help you count nutrients instead of calories.

Visit the shoots&roots Facebook page and the shoots&roots website.

Ironman 70.3 Sunshine Coast

I headed into the inaugural Ironman 70.3 on the Sunshine Coast off the back of some quite light training. The event was in a really beautiful location and only an hour and a half away from home.

Not knowing how fast I would cycle I was really happy to complete my first 70.3 race in 4hrs 45 mins, much faster than hoped and setting a worryingly fast time to beat in my next 70.3!

A low-cost, flexible and lightweight recording system for task analysis using multiple synchronized video cameras

A tech-note explaining how we have used low cost technology to record  multiple synchronized video feeds in a bronchoscopy task analysis will be detailed in the July 2013 issue of Ergonomics in design

Ergonomics in Design: The Quarterly of Human Factors Applications, is intended to serve the needs of practicing human factors/ergonomics professionals who are concerned with the usability of products, systems, tools, and environments.”

The full paper tile is “A low-cost, flexible and lightweight recording system for task analysis using multiple synchronized video cameras” Timothy Coles, Cedric Dumas.

Abstract

The authors report their experience from various task analysis projects in which users have been observed in situ. Solutions for simultaneous video recording, often needed to adequately observe and post analyze a workspace, are discussed. Of the various analog- and digital-based solutions, the authors deem a low-cost solution using entry-level computer hardware to produce sufficiently high-fidelity feedback for most task analysis purposes. Such systems can be acquired and set up by novice computer users for a fraction of the cost of broadcast video systems. A case study demonstrates the application of one such inexpensive solution.

Ironman Port Macquarie 2013

A year ago my need for a challenge found me entering the hardest sporting even I could think of. An Ironman triathlon. A 3.8km swim followed by a 180 Km cycle and finished off by a 42.2Km run!

I hadn’t swam in years, never ridden a road bike and had run 10Km.

The result… thankfully I didn’t die and finished in just over 11hrs
