Hi rioters, I am looking at applying for a promotion and have to do a selection criteria up. I’m awesome but I’m not good at selling myself.
Has anyone used one of the many companies that write the criteria for you? If so any good ones to speak of?
I’m looking for recommendations for a good doctor on the North-side. Like the recent question I’m more comfortable with a female doctor, but my main criteria is that I’d like a doctor who keeps up with the latest research and who is pro-active in getting to the bottom of things.
Any suggestions would be welcome.

Dearly beloved Rioters,
She and I are looking for a wedding venue in Canberra that is cheap, large (100+ guests), and allows own choice of caterer. Nice view, tasteful decor, grand piano, hired muscle not necessary.
Any suggestions? If a marquee is the only option, any ideas where to pitch it?
I realise that there has recently been a similar post for Northside hairdressers however I am ideally looking for someone based either in the Mawson/Fadden area (or if need be, the city).

It seems as soon as one mentions the ‘W’ word – wedding – photographers add a zero to their fee. So here’s the deal – my son and fiance need a photograher for a mid-week wedding later this year. Whilst its easy to talk up and over-sophisticate wedding photography, they simply want someone to do [...]

Got some family visiting over the Easter break and looking to show them some of Canberra’s better cuisine – and by that I don’t mean Kingsley’s. Am only fairly new to town, so not too sure where to find what I’m looking for!

Wonder if any ‘Acters can help/advise …
I have BigPond internet, which gives me a download speed of around 3.3 Mbps … on ADSL2+. It hasn’t bothered me too much until recently, as I’m definitely a light user, but when I decided a bit of catch-up TV might be nice it didn’t handle that too well [...]
I would love to hear other Rioters’ experiences – good and bad – in relation to traffic calming measures. Significant traffic changes are proposed for Chisholm, RIchardson and Gilmore – namely roundabouts, raised intersections, platforms, and speed cushions. I am particularly interested in whether you have experienced these devices in your residential area, [...]

Walking on the ‘Bogey Hole’ beach at Mollymook, 6 am Tuesday, I found this amazing rock which had washed up during high tide. I’m convinced it’s an ancient artefact, and can just imagine it was a tool shaped from stone thousands of years ago…obviously [...]

Someone I know who lives there told me about a guerrilla defecator who has been taking random dumps on front lawns near her house.
