The Prime Minister said he was 'open minded'
Reported by Daily Caller 24 minutes ago.
Watch VideoAustralia's Prime Minister Scott Morrison is taking a cue from President Donald Trump on two major geopolitical issues.
Morrison made an unexpected announcement that he's open to moving the country's embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The move would break with the country's longstanding policy on Israeli-Palestinian relations.
"Now, in relation to our diplomatic presence in Israel, what I have simply said is this: We are committed to a two-state solution," Scott Morrison said.
The Guardian reports Morrison is also considering reviewing Australia's role in the Iran nuclear deal. In May, Trump decided to pull the U.S. out of the 2015 agreement because it didn't address the country's ballistic missile program or its support for armed groups in places like Yemen or Syria.
All of this comes before a Saturday election where the Jewish population is about 12 percent. Opposition Senator Penny Wong accused Morrison of using important foreign policy issues in an inappropriate attempt to win votes.

Global Provider of Virtual Office Solutions to Provide Live Answering Services for Leading Shared Office Space Franchise
DENVER (PRWEB) October 16, 2018
As Office Evolution continues along its strong growth trajectory, the leading coworking space franchise continues strengthening its customer service experience. In its latest initiative, the brand expanded its partnership with virtual office solutions provider Davinci to outsource all live reception and live answering services for its corporate and franchise-owned locations.
Office Evolution has seen explosive growth in 2018, nearly doubling its existing presence year over year. Because of this rapid expansion, the brand has been committed to implementing more scalable solutions. The recent initiative establishes a team of dedicated Davinci live receptionists to the Office Evolution account. This allows the shared office space company to continue offering its customers unparalleled service as it continues nationwide growth.
“Office Evolution’s approach is extremely customer-centric, so it’s important for us to partner with vendors that share those same values,” said Chief Operating Officer of Office Evolution, William Edmundson. “As we continue to expand into new markets, we want to ensure that our level of exceptional customer service remains consistent. Davinci gives us confidence knowing that our customers will be cared for with the same level of professionalism that we would expect of our team internally, giving us the opportunity to allocate more time and resources to our franchisees and future development.”
Office Evolution’s unique approach to growth also gives Davinci the ability to enter new markets. The company’s core customers are located in suburban markets outside of major metropolitan markets. And while Davinci has over 1,000 virtual office locations across the nation, fewer of them are located in the suburbs.
“Office Evolution is growing rapidly, which gives us the opportunity to grow with them,” said Davinci CEO and Co-Founder Martin Senn. “Because of the way their model is structured to focus on suburban growth, they are providing us with location coverage in areas where we may not have had a presence otherwise. For example, Davinci might have 70 locations in Manhattan, but very few locations in Ogden, Utah. Their unique footprint is great for our clients and also important for their own expansion.”
With Office Evolution’s upcoming openings in suburban markets throughout Idaho, Texas, Virginia, Connecticut, New Jersey, Indiana, Arizona, Missouri, and Wisconsin, the recent engagement with Davinci will ensure the coworking franchise continues to provide best in class services to its members.

*Three-day partner event will give APAC technology solution providers **the opportunity to learn and network with peers and product experts*
TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Plans for the first-ever IT Nation Connect in APAC have been unveiled by ConnectWise, a software company that connects technology teams to the solutions, services and resources necessary for success. The 25-27 March conference on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, will provide technology solution industry professionals with three days of business best practices, hands-on product training, networking opportunities and a keynote address from ConnectWise CEO Arnie Bellini.
Stuart Applegate, Director, IT Nation International Community for ConnectWise, said the idea to bring the popular IT Nation Connect gathering to APAC was inspired by the company’s Australia and New Zealand partners. He said those who have travelled to IT Nation events in the United States and those who attend local IT Nation Share (formerly ConnectWise Users Groups) meetings have been vocal about their desire to have an IT Nation Connect event closer to home. When combined with the results of a recent survey in which 95 percent of respondents indicated they would be interested in attending an event of this type in Australia, the decision to organise an APAC-based IT Nation Connect conference was easy.
“We debuted our first IT Nation partner conference in the United States 14 years ago and have watched the annual event in Orlando, Florida, grow into one of the largest gatherings of IT professionals in the world with its more than 3,000 attendees,” Applegate said. “We’re excited to add an Australian event to give IT service providers who live and work in the APAC region the opportunity to more easily access the innovative ideas and educational opportunities that have been available to their peers in the United States.”
Dean Calvert is one of ConnectWise’s Australia-based partners who has travelled to Orlando on several occasions for its annual conference. The Managing Director of Calvert Technologies said he is looking forward to an event designed especially for partners in the APAC region.
“Spending time with other ConnectWise users and experts who are willing to share their knowledge and ideas about how to grow an IT services business was both inspiring and beneficial,” Calvert said. “The fact that ConnectWise has listened to its partners and is bringing us together in Australia clearly demonstrates how ConnectWise understands its community.”
IT Nation Connect attendees will experience three impactful days of speakers, sessions and peer networking opportunities focused on in-depth product training, business best practices and thought leadership that drives business growth. The conference will include at least 30 hours of breakout sessions and two keynote addresses.
Applegate said he expects more than 300 professionals to attend the inaugural IT Nation Connect conference in Australia to connect, collaborate and grow with the best minds in the industry. “We are incredibly excited about providing our partners around the world a community that gives them the tools and knowledge they need for their businesses,” he said.
