This week... From the editor Are you one of the few Australians who achieve seven to nine hours of sleep per night? If so, you’re on track to optimise your brain’s potential and your mental health. According to renowned media personality Todd Sampson (Redesign My Brain, Body Hack, Gruen), who was in town last week for some workshops with Synergy, “sleep is the best performance enhancer on the planet”. All the benefits of a nutritional diet and regular exercise happen when you sleep. Todd’s top tips for brain development and creating new neural pathways is to step outside your comfort zone. While I won’t be scaling cliff faces blindfolded anytime soon, he offered three achievable exercises for brain development: learn another language; learn a musical instrument; or brush your teeth with your non-dominant hand for 30 days. Brush, brush! Reasons to be grateful this past week include an indulgent Sunday afternoon at the Westering launch at Lake George Winery followed by a helicopter flight back to the airport (#perksofthejob), the CW team cooking Meals from the Heart for families staying at Ronald McDonald House Canberra, attending Synergy’s inaugural Be Curious event with Todd Sampson at The Social Club, a friend’s book launch at the Hellenic Club, a Design Diplomacy event at the Italian Ambassador’s residence, smart phones, and celebrating birthdays of a dear friend and a young relative. - Julie Samaras

news SPIRE reference group gives voice to community A Community Reference Group is set to provide a voice for the local community on the ACT Government’s SPIRE project with calls to ensure it provides the opportunity for “genuine consultation”. Garran Residents’ Association (GRA) spokesperson, Jennifer Berget, said they welcome the announcement of the reference group, however “at this stage, we do not yet know how the reference group will work but we hope that it will provide the opportunity for genuine consultation”. “We expect all relevant information to be provided to the group and that the community can see the positive results and influence of their involvement, particularly in the areas of safety, traffic, parking, noise, and the helicopter flight path over residences and neighbouring primary school.” Ms Berget reiterated that the GRA supports expansion of the hospital facilities but would also like to see an ACT Legislative Assembly Committee inquiry in partnership

with the reference group. The inquiry would be in relation to the petition due to be tabled on Thursday 28 November with regards to development at the Canberra Hospital. “The expenditure of $500 million on the project justifies this public examination of the proposal which will affect, in one way or another, all Canberrans,” Ms Berget said. “An Assembly inquiry could investigate, amongst other things, how the SPIRE project will fit into the master plan for the hospital precinct (that has not yet been developed). We believe this step will contribute to a much better outcome than the in-house plans which were announced recently.” ACT Minister for Health, Rachel Stephen-Smith, said the government has already started working through some of the concerns heard from the community and that, at this stage, “we are only in early concept design phase” with the “whole 2020” to work through the design. “People really thought we were at a much more detailed level of design

Enabling works have started at the Canberra Hospital in preparation for the anticipated start of construction of the ACT Government’s SPIRE project in 2021.

then we currently are,” she said. “I want to assure people we are at early stage of consumer engagement with this project.” Ms Stephen-Smith said by working together with clinicians, consumers and the local community, “we can deliver an emergency, surgical and critical healthcare facility at Canberra Hospital that is technologically advanced, fit-for-purpose and meets the needs of our growing and ageing community”. Works have started to prepare the hospital campus site for the installation of a two-storey modular building which will allow hospital administration staff to be relocated from the footprint identified for the SPIRE project. The

modular building is being fabricated offsite and will be ready for installation starting in December. Enabling works will continue throughout 2020 and will include the relocation of utilities and existing services, ground preparation, and demolition of two buildings. “By starting the enabling works on site now, we will be ready for construction of the main facility to begin in 2021,” Ms Stephen-Smith said. Expressions of interest for the local community reference group close on Thursday 12 December, with the kickoff meeting to be held early 2020.

ANU releases campus safety strategy The Australian National University (ANU) has released its Sexual Violence Prevention Strategy, two years after the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) released a damning national report on sexual assault and harassment at Australian universities. ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt said the strategy aims to address violence at the “individual, campus and whole-ofuniversity level”. The ANU plans to implement the strategy in three phases from 2019 to 2026, with key inclusions such as: the development of an online reporting tool which allows anonymous disclosures; the piloting of a trained First 12

Responders Network of staff across the university for cases of sexual misconduct; and creating a ‘data hub’ for disclosures and reports of sexual violence. The strategy will be led by ANU’s Respectful Relationships Unit (RRU), which was established earlier this year to coordinate the university’s response to sexual harassment and assault. RRU head Sue Webeck said some elements of the strategy had already been implemented, while the first phase of the strategy would be to identify what actions ANU has already taken. “This includes the development and testing of an online disclosure tool, a sexual misconduct policy which sits alongside this strategy,

and a coordinated training approach to sexual violence prevention, intervention and response,” she said. The ANU Postgraduate and Research Students’ Association (PARSA) have welcomed the release of the strategy, and said it is a “significant step in the right direction”. PARSA and the ANU Students’ Association (ANUSA) marked the two-year anniversary of the AHRC report in August with a black flag installation, sit-in and the release of a report entitled One Step Forward, Two Steps Back, condemning the university’s “slow progress” on the issue. “It is important to be proud of this piece of work and what years

of student advocacy has achieved today, but it is also important to recognise that it doesn’t stop here,” said ANUSA president Eden Lim. “Although delayed, we welcome the university’s fulfilment of their commitment to develop a sexual violence prevention strategy. This is a huge win for the countless students who’ve been campaigning for decades for justice for survivors and the cultural change required to tackle this issue.” PARSA president Utsav Gupta also gave credit to “the tireless work of survivors and student advocates”. “We welcome this launch and commit to working with the university to ensure that the cultural change is successful and enduring.”

capital hill Whatever you can get away with It’s nothing new that “history is always written by winners”. But rolled into this assessment is a disturbing new “morality” at work both in business and politics. Winners are now those who can successfully get away with, well, anything. Pulling the wool over voters’ or customers’ eyes is not particularly new – but the brazenness of it is. “Winners” are increasingly those who can get away with self-interested hitherto dodgy dealings. The problem for them is that this pushing of the ethical envelope can unravel spectacularly when reality bites by way of exposure of their appalling behaviour or dishonesty; or to put it another way, when the truth comes out in such a way it can no longer be denied with impunity. So in the United States we have Donald Trump desperately trying to call black white and to transfer onto

others what he himself is accused of in spades. For example, in the 2016 presidential election campaign, Trump encouraged his supporters to an almost religious fervour as they chanted at his rallies “lock her up”; the “her” was Hillary Clinton. The Republican presidential candidate, Trump had no qualms calling her “crooked Hillary” for numerous, often confected allegations over misuse of charitable foundation monies, private emails and favours for friends. His own charitable foundation is now closed down for exactly what he accused Clinton of. Trump is the first presidential candidate in recent history who refused to release his tax returns or records. He even claimed if he paid no tax it was “because I am smart”. Hillary’s supposed misdemeanours pale into insignificance compared to the latest revelations that

Trump used his presidential office to heavy a foreign government in the Ukraine to dig up dirt on a domestic political opponent, Democrat Joe Biden. Evidence before Congressional hearings has even Trump’s supporters, for example the ambassador to the Ukraine, Gordon Sondland, who donated a million dollars to Trump’s campaign, calling out the president’s shameless abuse of his public office. Closer to home, we have the seemingly never ending revelations of the unconscionable behaviour of our major banks. The latest is Australia’s oldest bank, Westpac. With every new shocking disclosure, the government shifts uneasily on its feet. Not only did the Abbott/Hockey Government try to unwind reforms busting financial advice conflict of interest working against banks’ customers, it cut funding to the watchdogs and

WITH PAUL BONGIORNO AM CONTRIBUTING EDITOR

extracted some of their teeth. Now we have the Prime Minister Scott Morrison adopting a double standard. It’s well to remember as Treasurer he resisted a Royal Commission into the banks till he was almost blue in the face. Morrison says it’s not his place to tell Westpac to sack its CEO after 23 million breaches of foreign money transfers laws worth $11 billion, yet he was outspoken calling for the sacking of Victorian construction industry union boss John Setka for breaches that pale into insignificance by comparison. The banks, by contrast, are too big to fail and, it seems, too big to jail.

news Demolition the solution As the clean-up of ‘Mr Fluffy’ loose fill asbestos comes to a close, the ACT Government has announced a suite of initiatives to help wrap up the saga. Since 2014, the Loose Fill Asbestos Insulation Eradication Scheme has helped to remove 95% of the 1,024 identified Mr Fluffy affected properties from the Canberra community, with the total net cost of the scheme expected to be around $300 million. On 19 November, the ACT Government announced the Pathways to Eradication Package to support community safety outcomes as remaining homeowners manage their affected property. “Remaining affected properties continue to put the occupiers and members of the broader community, who may enter the property, at risk of exposure to loose fill asbestos insulation,” ACT Minister for Employment and Workplace Safety,

Suzanne Orr said. The Package initiatives include: transition assistance; additional Asbestos Management Plan (AMP) requirements; Development and Building Approval restrictions; and the introduction of an Occupancy Prohibition for new owners and tenants, to prevent affected properties being occupied following ownership transfer or the end of a rental agreement. However, the Government’s position remains that the only enduring solution to the existence of loose fill asbestos in the ACT is demolition of affected properties. The Government has acknowledged it may need to take future Compulsory Acquisition action if homeowners do not arrange for the demolition of their affected property prior to mid-2025, by which time they will have had 10 years to manage their property.

Ambitious appeal to raise $1M Fifteen prominent Canberrans and organisations joined Hands Across Canberra (HAC) on Tuesday 26 November to launch the inaugural Canberra Day Appeal – an ambitious campaign to raise $1 million for over 250 different local charities and organisations working with the ACT’s most vulnerable residents. Australians of the Year, sports stars, business leaders and community organisations came together to launch the Appeal, which calls on Canberrans to raise their hands to help those in need. Peter Gordon, CEO of HAC, said “the objective of the Canberra Day Appeal is to encourage as many people as possible to donate as little as $10 each to help our most vulnerable citizens, both now and into the future”. “Of course, if individuals, local businesses or social groups can donate more, then we would gratefully welcome these 16

contributions as it only brings us closer to our goal.” In the ACT, one in 200 people are homeless and one in 25 people live with a severe or profound disability, who require assistance to enjoy a full life. HAC works with over 250 organisations in the region who protect the most vulnerable amongst us. To donate or for more information, visit canberraday.org.au

news Help care for Canberra’s vulnerable children Having been a foster carer for over two decades, 2020 ACT Local Hero Julia Rollings said there is a need for more carers for Canberra’s most vulnerable children. Ms Rollings has looked after almost 50 children in foster care and said that unless you’re involved in the sector, the need is “a bit hidden”. According to a spokesperson from the Community Services Directorate, as at 30 June 2019, there were 279 children in foster care and 384 children in kinship care in the ACT. In addition, there are 96 children and young people living with their kinship or foster carers on an Enduring Parental Responsibility Order. “The number of children in foster care in the ACT has remained stable over the last two financial years. However, the number of children entering out of home care has

steadily decreased over this period of time, from 196 in 2016-17 to 122 in 2018-19,” the spokesperson said. When it comes to foster care, a spokesperson for ACT Together said it is a challenge to recruit carers, especially carers for children living with a disability, groups of two or more siblings and young people aged 11-15 years. “ACT Together is seeking different types of foster carers in the Canberra region to provide safe and stable homes for children and young people who cannot live with their families or their extended families,” the spokesperson said. “Our need is for carers – single, married, gay, partnered, those with a full house or empty nesters – who are able to care for a child for as little as a weekend a month to the carers who will welcome a child into their family for life.”

While Ms Rollings would like to see more people become involved in foster care, she acknowledged there also needs to be greater support available as carers are “on the frontline with these kids”. “Foster carers are on duty every day and we need to do a better job of supporting them as they are helping turn kids’ lives around.” Carers caring through ACT Together have access to support through the Carer Support Program that provides debriefing, advocacy and referral to other services. Carers also have access to training, therapeutic professionals, events and a subsidy towards the cost of care. Melissa Bell, General Manager ACT Together, said “it is unquestionably our experience that every child who winds up doing well has had at least one stable

#ownyourtone this summer Melanoma is the third most common diagnosed cancer among ACT men and women and with summer around the corner, it’s a timely reminder to be sun smart. #ownyourtone was the theme of National Skin Cancer Week, 17-23 November, encouraging all teenagers to be happy with the skin colour they have and to be aware of the dangers of tanning. The theme draws on “concerning” results from Cancer Council’s National Sun Protection Survey. According to the research, one in four teenagers are getting sunburnt on summer weekends. When looking at each of the five measures of sun protection: 10% of teenagers slipped on a sun protective top, 38% slopped on SPF 30 or higher sunscreen, 38% slapped on a hat, 23% sought shade and 21% slid on sunglasses. 18

At least two in three Australians will be diagnosed with some form of skin cancer by age 70. Over 2,000 people nationally die from the disease each year. However, Cancer Council ACT Chief Executive Sandra Turner said there is some good news. “Since the mid-1990s we’ve continued to see a steady and significant decline in the number of ACT teens reporting they like to get a suntan, down from 72% to 51% in 2017 for females and from 82.4% to 56.9% for males, according to the three-yearly ASSAD (Australian secondary school students’ alcohol and drug) survey,” Ms Turner said. Despite this, “still far too many Canberra teens will simply just not heed the sun smart message this summer, increasing their lifetime risk of skin cancer, including deadly melanoma”.

The finalists in the Great Canberra Cook Off ‘Stripped Back Chef’ event – (from left) Franzi Lane, Melissa Woodley, Mary Levy and Andreas Zurbrugg – will compete this Saturday 30 November 9am at the Capital Region Farmers Market.

Meet your Cook Off finalists The ACT is home to plenty of novice chefs following an overwhelming response to the Healthier Choices Canberra Great Canberra Cook Off. Getting down to 11 finalists was a massive task with some brilliant video entries submitted for this inaugural ACT Health competition designed to get more Canberrans to

eat and cook healthier meals. From rice paper rolls to chicken souvlaki and an intriguing veggie snap balls dish, Australia’s wholesome culinary journey has come a long way since our meat and three veg combo. The Healthy Eating Hub’s Kate Freeman said the Cook Off is all about

creating recipes with a healthier twist using the great foods and flavours on offer in our city. “We’re on a mission to find Canberra’s most creative and talented home cooks who can make easy, delicious meals and inspire Canberrans to do the same,” Kate said. It’s clear the message about healthier eating is getting through to the next generation with scores of primary school kids vying for the Little Chef category. The four finalists’ recipes for this category include these fabulous treats: • Veggie Snap Balls by Luke Spencer • Rainbow Topped Potato Pieces by Lily Abrahamffy • San Choy Bau by Lola Taylor • Prawn, Fettuccine and Rocket Salad by Oscar Abraham. The Teen Chef finalists had a tasty mix of recipes including: • Mango, Raspberry and Chia Pudding by Maeve Southby and Indi Fitzgerald • Tasty Lettuce Snack Cups by Sebastian Connor • Chicken Souvlaki by Ava Liaonos. The adult finalists for the Stripped Back Chef were required to submit a recipe that is a healthier choice for school and sporting canteens, which can be prepared on ‘stripped back’ equipment. Ms Freeman

said the finalists nailed the healthier twist and came up with these exciting options: • Vegetable Fritters by Franzi Lane • Cheeky Banana Bread by Melissa Woodley • Rainbow Rolls (rice paper rolls) and Mince Burger Wrap by Mary Levy • Healthy Poke Bowl by Andreas Zurbrugg. The finalists will now battle it out against one another at The Great Canberra Cook Off finale for the ultimate title of Canberra’s top chef. The winners will take home great prizes from the National Zoo and Aquarium, The Bank Indoor Skate Park, Riddle Room, Questacon, Bison Home, Pushys Fyshwick and Burning Log Mega Store. You’ll also be able to get a copy of the finalists’ recipes, which will be featured in The Great Canberra Cook Off e-recipe book. This will be available for free download on the ACT Health website after the winners are announced.

news Government push for developer licensing scheme The ACT Government has announced a commitment to creating and implementing a licensing scheme for property developers in the ACT, putting “dodgy developers” on notice. Building Quality and Improvement Minister, Gordon Ramsay, said the accountability for the quality of buildings in the ACT needs to be shared throughout the supply chain, with the scheme to look at what constitutes a developer for licensing purposes to ensure developers working on multi-residential developments are accountable for the quality of their builds. “A new scheme to license developers will further this commitment and put those in the industry doing the wrong thing on notice,” Minister Ramsay said. “We have seen too many instances of property developers forcing builders to cut corners and save on costs, only to eventually wind up projects and leave

owners with the bill. “This work will make sure all involved in our building industry are accountable and working to provide Canberrans with high quality homes.” Minister Ramsay said the Government would now undertake “extended” consultation with industry and the community to “determine the best way forward”. He said consultation would look at issues such as contracting for the sale of off-theplan units, the practice of “phoenixing” between builders and developers (when a new company is created to continue the business of a company that has been intentionally liquidated to avoid paying its debts), and the security of payment for workers and sub-contractors. Master Builders ACT has previously criticised the Government for not consulting with industry on previous reforms, such as new laws that would

Call Now to Get Much Needed Guidance & Insights from Francis Bevan and The Inner Circle Team

see company directors personally liable for building defects, labelling them “draconian”. Master Builders ACT CEO Michael Hopkins said the industry was tired of being referred to as “dodgy” by Minister Ramsay, and said the revelations across the country and “failures by government building regulators to enforce building laws” have led to deterioration of confidence in the sector and government regulators. “Continual reference to the local property and construction sector as ‘dodgy’ by our own Minister is adding to this loss of confidence,” Mr Hopkins said. “The local building and construction sector employs around 20,000 people and comprises mostly small and family businesses. The many high quality businesses in the sector are sick and tired of hearing their Minister call them ‘dodgy’.” He said Master Builders ACT

supports the Government’s objective to deal with illegal “phoenixing”. However, he said Master Builders has called on the Government to implement reforms across the entire building supply chain, an approach he said is consistent with the Building Confidence Report, or Shergold Weir Report, released last year. “If the ACT Government is committed to exploring a licensing system for property developers, it should conduct this investigation holistically and consider the entire building supply chain including designers, engineers, trade contractors, principal contractors and their clients,” he said. “A holistic review of licensing should also consider training standards for new entrants to the industry which is also highlighted in the expert report as a critical element to the improvement of building quality.”

Research into avoiding space collisions Research by UNSW Canberra and Canberra based SME Clearbox Systems is aiming to raise the bar on global space collision avoidance. Awarded funding as part of the Innovation Connections grant program, the research project will see experts from UNSW Canberra Space work alongside Clearbox Systems focusing on Space Situational Awareness (SSA), which is centred on mitigating the risks associated with the hazard of orbital collisions in the congested near-Earth orbits.

The key activities undertaken as part of the grant will be: determining the most appropriate spacecraft signals to enhance SSA, and devising methods to extract information, including spacecraft trajectory information, from those signals. It is expected that there will be at least a 20-fold increase in the number of active low Earth orbit satellites in the next five years. This project will enhance tracking and knowledge of the behaviour of these satellites.

news Anketell Street to become bus free zone Buses are set to be rerouted from Anketell Street with the announcement coming two years after the Tuggeranong Council Community (TCC) petitioned the ACT Government. The TCC’s initial petition in 2017 stemmed from the results of a Tuggeranong Liveability Survey, which identified revitalisation of the Town Centre as a key concern. They said the biggest negative impact on the area was the use of Anketell Street by buses as the noise and emissions inhibited outdoor interactions. The long overdue decision to re-route buses away from Anketell Street follows a motion in the Assembly by Liberal Member for

Brindabella, Nicole Lawder, in August 2019. “This is a win for the entire Tuggeranong community,” Ms Lawder said. “This was a great community effort which attracted the support of more than 700 people calling on the Barr Government to change its hardline position. Clearly our collective efforts have paid off.” ACT Minister for City Services, Chris Steel, said the decision to remove the buses from Anketell Street followed the completion of the Anketell Street upgrades earlier this year and feedback from local residents and businesses. “The community made it clear they wanted to see buses taken

off Anketell Street so they could enjoy their newly upgraded main street with a cleaner and quieter environment, with more options for business to expand their outdoor dining facilities,” Mr Steel said. Buses will now travel into the interchange via Soward Drive, turn right along Athllon Drive, take the signalised right onto Anketell Street and into the interchange, with new bus stops being added on Athllon Drive. The changes to bus routes currently using Anketell Street will come into effect in April next year. In addition to rerouting buses, Mr Steel announced that the government is bringing forward the upgrades to the Tuggeranong Laneways precinct

Gunners to Tuggers: nicknames to live by Canberrans regularly refer to our town centres and suburbs by a fistful of diminutives. There’s everything from the very Australian ‘Charny’, ‘Dicko’ or ‘Tuggers’ to the epithets ‘Belcompton’, ‘Gunghetto’ and ‘Thugeranong’ and the satirical ‘People’s Republic of the Inner North’. But this is a phenomenon not limited to the bush capital, with Australians across the country answering a call-out from The Australian National Dictionary Centre (ANDC) and providing over 1,000 examples of the unique nicknames we give places. The Centre, which is based at ANU, has been inundated with responses from ‘The Cott’ (Cottesloe, WA) to ‘Epicfail’ (Innisfail, Qld) and everywhere in between. ANDC senior researcher Mark Gwynn says he’s noticed some clear trends in the monikers we cook up for our cities and townships. “What was especially interesting were the similarities between the nickname patterns and other forms of word generation in Australia,” he said. 24

Tuggeranong is known by many nicknames including Tuggers, Nappy Valley, Thugeranong and North Cooma, all of which have been compiled by the Australian National Dictionary Centre. File image.

“For example, the ‘y’ and ‘o’ endings found in words like ‘barbie’ for barbecue and ‘muso’ for musician, are also found in nicknames like ‘Goldy’ for Gold Coast, and ‘Paddo’ for Paddington. “These endings act as a code of familiarity in Australian speech.” An abbreviation with ‘the’ in front of it also proved popular, (‘The Berra’), as did the ‘vegas’ ending, as in ‘Brisvegas’. “The allusion to Las Vegas is usually ironic, comparing a relatively

quiet place to the hustle and bustle of the casino city,” Mr Gwynn said. Other popular patterns include using –town (G-town for Geelong) and the ‘ers’ ending (Gunners for Gungahlin). You can view the whole list of nicknames at slll.cass.anu.edu.au/ centres/andc/nicknames If you have a nickname you want to add to the list, enter it using the Centre’s Word Box feature at slll.cass.anu.edu.au/centres/andc/ form/word-box

with work starting as early as January next year. Final designs for the project have been released for the upgraded laneways from Lake Tuggeranong to Anketell Street and tender for construction is now open. The works will include 40 new deciduous trees, improved pavement levels for pedestrians and cyclists, seating and shade structures, water permeable paving around trees, raingardens, and irrigated grass near the lakeshore. “We hope this new space will see more activity in the upgraded laneways and construction will be complete ahead of schedule for next year’s SouthFest,” he said.

Canberra PCYC wins grant Canberra PCYC is one of eight winners in this year’s Active Australia Innovation Challenge for their project, Love my Heart. Canberra PCYC plans to take groups of young people aged 10 to 25 for bicycle rides around Lake Burley Griffin and in the hills around the city. The project aims to get young people moving, while also providing positive role modelling. Canberra PCYC’s grant will be used to buy bicycles for the project. It’s hoped up to 70 young people will participate in the program each week. The Active Australia Innovation Challenge is a Heart Foundation initiative supported by the Australian Government Department of Health. This year the Heart Foundation received 252 entries, almost double the number submitted for the inaugural grants in 2018. PCYC will receive a grant of $10,000 to turn their project into reality.

news Bus Stop Films call all aboard for 2020 On the back of a successful string of taster workshops spanning August to November, Bus Stop Films has opened enrolments for its Accessible Film Studies Program for 2020 in partnership with Screen Canberra. The industry standard filmmaking course tailored to intellectually disabled students provides learning opportunities through theoretical and practical experiences, with many enjoying professional work opportunities while creating awardwinning films. The program will be taught by acclaimed local filmmaker Dan Sangueti, offering students exclusive opportunities to go on excursions and work with industry mentors. Screen Canberra CEO Monica Penders says everyone involved was very pleased with the response to the preview workshops. “The response to the free taster workshops has shown how programs like this are much needed here in Canberra. It’s a welcome addition to our local film community.” Filmmaker and tutor Dan

Sanguineti tells Canberra Weekly he’s very excited to share his passion for filmmaking with his students. “With the experience I’ve had with my workshops for school children that I’ve done for a number of years, tutoring at the universities and CIT, it seemed like the right fit to have me come on and be a part of this.” A stalwart of Canberra’s filmmaking industry, Sanguineti says he wants to help facilitate opportunities for emerging filmmakers in as many ways possible. “I noticed there wasn’t enough experiences available for younger people, I didn’t have it … I was literally given a camera. “I want to help fill that void that existed, and there’s always a lot of work to do. “So hearing what Bus Stop is here to offer to a part of the community that hasn’t seen that there are opportunities for them, this is a program that will give them a very clear chance to be a part of something I do every single day,” he says. Alongside the vocational training

students receive, the Accessible Film Studies Program also nurtures a sense of connection and community amongst students and their families. In addition to learning film studies, student outcomes include other transformational skills – social, work ready, learning to take direction, turn up on time – that are applicable in other aspects of life. Bus Stop Films co-founder, Genevieve Clay-Smith, tells Canberra Weekly a key part of the program’s aims is to help people transition into employment. “Certainly through our Sydney program we’ve been able to help facilitate employment opportunities in the film industry for people who study through us. “Some of our students have also been able to get jobs in other fields … there’s an amazing outcome for our program where it holistically benefits people.” As part of its upcoming Canberra program, Bus Stop Films will offer its first Indigenous Student Scholarship.

Corbin-Matchett says it’s an excellent way to kick off a program focused on inclusion and diversity through filmmaking. The weekly three-hour classes will be held at Screen Canberra on Saturday mornings over a 40-week program starting February 2020 with a maximum of 15 students. Students will be able to use their NDIS funds to pay course fees. For more information, visit bustopfilms.com.au - Denholm Samaras

RMHC’s Christmas Extravaganza: families supporting families Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) ACT will host a Christmas Extravaganza over the weekend of 7 and 8 December, inviting families to enjoy a fun-filled day out and support RMHC’s work in the ACT and South East NSW. “It’ll be a great day out for the family supporting RMHC,” says RMHC ACT and SE NSW executive officer, Michelle McCormack. “The admission price, which is $50 for a family of four, includes unlimited rides, then you’ve got vouchers for food, beverages, ‘side show alley’ type games, and lots of fun and entertainment,” she says. There will be face painting on offer, as well as different activities for “kids of all ages”. Kids under 12 will receive a Christmas present, a show bag, lolly bag and a bag of fairy floss 26

for pre-purchased tickets. There will also be a monster raffle. “Then we’ve got Santa coming on both days,” Michelle says. Everything raised over the weekend will go directly to supporting the RMHC’s programs in the ACT; the Ronald McDonald House and the Ronald McDonald Family Room at the Centenary Hospital for Women and Children at Canberra Hospital. The programs are run by a team of staff members and volunteers, and receive no government funding for their operations. Michelle says families staying at the House are often from rural and regional areas surrounding Canberra, with a large number with children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or the Special Care

Nursery, as well as the Paediatric Ward. “A lot of families come from outside the ACT and don’t have anywhere to say, so we give them priority to ensure that they’ve got the support to be here and be able to stay close to their kids,” Michelle says. She says the feedback received at the House is that “it’s amazing” for families to be so close to their children, in a safe, secure and comfortable environment. One family said “I don’t know how we could express how grateful we are for all the staff and volunteers at Ronald McDonald House. You made our stay here fly by and now we can head home with a healthy, happy girl”. Another family, Ross and Meredith, said they were “warmly

welcomed, and, although still in a state of shock, immediately felt grateful that there was a place for us to recover and be able to focus on looking after Millie”. Michelle says the team at RMHC are trying to make their House feel like home. “Just knowing that we’re able to provide that environment and allow them to be close to their child, to have their family come and visit, or if need be, come and stay with them; to be able to provide that opportunity is amazing. And that’s what all the funds raised go towards supporting.” RMHC ACT’s Christmas Extravaganza will be held on Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 December 10am-4pm at EPIC.

one-off column Surviving the silly season or some of us, Christmas Holidays is the most exciting time of year. We love the busy-ness, the chance to catch up with family and friends. For others, the very mention of it sends us into a complete tailspin. If your heart sinks at the very thought of silly season and you think that you’re alone, you’re not! We’re told this time of year is supposed to be fun and stress-free, but, for many of us, we start to feel lonely, down and insecure. So how do you survive silly season when you are feeling like this? Firstly, know it’s okay to feel the way you do. It’s about embracing your feelings and differences. Let go of the expectations of what this time of year should be and don’t get caught up in it. If you want to sit and read a book, then that’s okay. It’s about what makes you happy. If you’re alone over the holidays, think about what you can do, where can you go, what would make this a joyous occasion for you.

I remember my first Christmas alone after my divorce, my sons went to their wives’ families and there I was alone, curled up in bed and not wanting to get out. Yet, the sun was shining through my window as if saying ‘come outside and enjoy the sunshine’ – that’s exactly what I did. As I started walking, I came across a friend who asked what I was doing and, next thing you know, I was at this big Italian family Christmas lunch and had the best time. Reach out to other people or even volunteer. Take up a workshop or class to be with others during this time. There are many resources for this, such as mudputty.com If you’re that person who says “no” to invitations, now is the time to practice saying “yes”. Know that others are there for you and it’s okay to ask for help if you need it. Giving of your time during holidays is a way to connect with others and bring joy to their

lives and yours. Having Christmas lunch with my dad and chatting with the other residents of the aged care facility, some years back, filled my heart. Get busy … busy-ness helps fill the void when you’re alone. Is there an option to work or to spend the day working around your home doing that project you’ve been putting off? Lastly, there is social media. Connect with your online friends and family. Set up your silly season group and host a party where you can drop in and out of. There’s a bonus to this type of catch-up, there is no clean-up afterwards. After all, we’re all different and that’s what makes us unique and special. But what’s important is to seek out what feels right for you and what makes you happy.

Helping athletes beat the heat Would you like to get on a bike for research? University of Canberra researcher Felicity Bright is investigating how air temperature, humidity, wind speed and solar radiation influences our body’s responses during prolonged exercise, and is after participants to help. Currently in the second year of her PhD and collecting data for study two of four, Ms Bright is after well-trained male cyclists or triathletes aged 18-55 that cycle at least 250km/week, are free from injury and “satisfy our pre-exercise screening tool”. Participants will take part in six testing sessions across approximately three weeks. “Sessions 1-2 are preliminary sessions which involve a VO2 max test (graded exercise test to exhaustion) and a 15km cycling time trial,” Ms Bright said. “Sessions 3-6 involve a 30km

self-paced time trial in varying environmental conditions.” According to Ms Bright, the project could have benefits for almost anyone who competes in sport. “Individuals competing in sport throughout Australia are exposed to harsh environments, particularly extreme temperatures and radiant heat stress, which not only impacts exercise performance but also individual health,” she said. “This project can assist athletes in understanding how and why their body responds to certain environments, and how their exercise performance may be impacted.” Data collection for this project will be underway until the end of 2020.

sport At a glance Cavs split series The Canberra Cavalry have been forced to share the honours with the Melbourne Aces after the visitors fought back from 2-0 down to level the series in week one of ABL action. The Cavalry had an ideal start to the series, winning 8-4 on Thursday 21 November and 7-2 on Friday 22 November before the Aces fought back for decisive victories on the weekend, winning 10-2 on Saturday and 10-5 on Sunday. The Cavalry player of the series was Cam Warner, who went 9-12 from the bat boasting a batting average of .750 which included a home run on opening day, while Cavalry veteran Kyle Perkins equalled the Cavs’ all-time home run record, hitting home runs 19 and 20 both on the Friday night.

Penalty heartbreak for United A stoppage time penalty goal was all that separated Canberra United and Melbourne City after a closely fought contest in Canberra on Sunday 24 November. Scoreless at half-time, the action kicked up a notch in the second half with United first to score. A long-range effort from Camila struck the post with the rebound falling kindly for Katie Stengel to slot it home. City returned fire almost immediately through Milica Mijatovic, who latched onto a lovely ball through United’s defensive line and deftly evaded goalkeeper Sham Khamis to score. It was an even battle for the remainder of the game until City launched a late attack which resulted in a penalty to the visitors after a clumsy challenge in the goal box. While Khamis correctly guessed Emily van Egmond’s penalty kick she was unable to get enough glove to ball to keep it out of the net with City claiming a 2-1 win in front of a crowd of 1,293 at McKellar Park. United’s next match is away against the Newcastle Jets on Saturday 30 November before returning home for a match against Brisbane Roar at McKellar Park on Thursday 5 December 7.30pm. In Y-League action, Canberra United lost 2-0 to Western Sydney Wanderers on Saturday 23 November. Their next match is away against the Newcastle Jets on Sunday 1 December. 30

Lunch options include the Copenhagen street dog (hot dog), and the ever-changing salad of the day. If you’re in need of a drink to pair with your brunch, never fear – RYE serves up famous Five Senses coffee, carefully crafted by expert head barista, Roberth. “I have been working here since April, and I was looking to work with high quality and tasty coffee, and I found that here at RYE,” he says. “Five Senses are really well known in the coffee industry. Our coffee is simple, it isn’t overdone. The quality of the set-up we have here for the coffee is just great. We have really good equipment.” New owners Gurmeet and Ekta are hospitality veterans, having both worked in the industry while completing their Masters degrees in Computing at ANU. The pair say they are working hard to reduce RYE’s environmental footprint, introducing biodegradable takeaway packaging. “From computing we moved to hospitality – a totally different career ... We’re now doing something that we love to do,” Gurmeet smiles. “We believe in three things: quality, customer experience and environment. These three things are really important to us. We don’t claim that we are 100% environmentally friendly or that we have zero footprint, but we are working towards that.” “We’re trying to get rid of single-use plastics as much as we can,” Ekta adds.

RYE was recently awarded a Canberra Region Local Business Award in the café category. New owners Gurmeet and Ekta say they owe it all to their fantastic team.

The RYE team were recently awarded a Canberra Region Local Business Award, taking out the ‘Café’ category for 2019. “There was a lot of competition, even just from in Braddon, from around 18 finalists,” Ekta says. “It was a totally different feeling, we were not expecting that,” Gurmeet adds. “We have a huge respect for our team, for what they have achieved.”

cwm advertising feature SHOP THE SALES

BLACK FRIDAY FOR BEGINNERS What is Black Friday? Black Friday is an international retail sale in November. It is traditionally on the Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States. Why is it called Black Friday? According to Wikipedia, the earliest evidence of the phrase Black Friday was used to “describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic that would occur on the day after Thanksgiving”. The name can also be seen as a nod to the acts of violence and even deaths associated with the event. However, a popular – and more positive – suggestion is for economic reasons; it represents when retailers turn a profit from “in the red” to black. When is Black Friday? This year, Black Friday will be on 29 November. However, many retailers tend to spread out their promotions to more than just one day.

Though plenty of retailers have jumped on the bandwagon, Black Friday is still a new concept for Aussies and many are missing a trick to save money. Speaking ahead of Black Friday sales last year, Bessie Hassan, Money Expert at comparison site, finder.com.au, said “retailers regularly have sales, so you shouldn’t be paying full price for anything. Beyond Christmas, think ahead for a New Year’s Eve outfit or back to school needs”. “The trick is to start browsing now. Jump online and check out your favourite sites, then start bookmarking or adding what you’d like to buy to your shopping cart,” she said. “Once the sale starts, you can easily see if the goods on your wish list are reduced, and quickly check out.” Meantime, new research by finder.com.au reveals 71% of people – equivalent to 13.8 million Australians – plan on shopping this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The survey of 1,003 respondents shows Aussies will spend $3.9 billion across the country in November, on a variety of products including clothes, beauty, gadgets and travel. Aussies will be spending the most on travel, forking out on average $130. This is followed by food and alcohol where Aussies are set to spend $127. Clothes and shoes round out the top three deals and discounts Aussies intend to make the most of, spending on average $93 in the lead up to Christmas.

cwm advertising feature stock to cut through the clutter and compete for dollars with all the other retailers that are also running Black Friday promotions,” she said. “Black Friday is a volume game, so play with your product profit and loss, and work out how to offer your customers enough of a discount to make them take action, using mechanisms that protect your margin.” Ms Fisher said it’s important to strike the right balance between getting your sale diarised amongst the Black Friday bargain hunters and not discouraging your customers that would otherwise buy at full price from buying in the weeks leading up.

THE BUSINESS OF BLACK FRIDAY When it comes to retail therapy, consumers are often encouraged to shop local – and with Black Friday sales, Canberra Business Chamber CEO Dr Michael Schaper said it is important to consider “Is this my substitute for Christmas spending or is it additional spending?”. “In terms of Black Friday, will it be a better offering than will come at Christmas time when Australia often has its sales,” he asked.

Warning signs • A product is advertised at an unbelievably low price, or advertised to have amazing benefits or features that sound too good to be true. • The social media based store is very new and selling products at very low prices. The store may have limited information about delivery and other policies. • An online retailer does not provide adequate information about privacy, terms and conditions of use, dispute resolution or contact details. The seller may be based overseas, or the seller does not allow payment through a secure payment service such as PayPal or a credit card transaction. Protect yourself • Check if the website or social media page has a refund or returns policy, and that their policies sound fair. The better online shopping and auction sites have detailed complaint or dispute handling processes in case something goes wrong. • When using retail websites, find out exactly who you are dealing with. If it is an Australian company, you are in a much better position to sort out the problem if something goes wrong. • Do an online search to find more information about a social media store. Research and read independent reviews of any company or product before purchasing. • When making online payments, only pay for items using a secure payment service. Look for a URL starting with ‘https’ and a closed padlock symbol, or a payment provider such as PayPal. Think twice before using virtual currencies such as Bitcoin, they do not have the same protections as other transaction methods so you can’t get your money back once you send it. • Avoid any arrangement with a stranger that asks for up-front payment via money order, wire transfer, international funds transfer, pre-loaded card or electronic currency, like Bitcoin. It is rare to recover money sent this way. Never send money or give credit card or online account details to anyone you don’t know or trust. • If you’ve sent money or shared your banking details with a scammer, contact your financial institution immediately. They may be able to stop a transaction, or close your account if the scammer has your account details. Your credit card provider may be able to perform a ‘charge back’ (reverse the transaction) if your credit card was billed fraudulently.

DID YOU KNOW? Cultural holidays are key dates for the retail sector. While Black Friday is growing in popularity in Australia, it’s nothing compared to China’s annual Singles’ Day which occurs on 11 November. The tradition comes from a Chinese celebration for single people (the date, 11/11, was chosen because the number ‘1’ resembles an individual who is alone). According to finder.com.au, Singles’ Day is the world’s most profitable and biggest shopping event which sees Chinese retailer Alibaba alone generate $20 billion in sales.

GIFT CARDS: SPEND NOW OR LATER Gift cards now will need to have a three-year minimum expiry date, and expiry dates will need to be prominently displayed. Together with other State and Territory Consumer Affairs Ministers, ACT Minister for Consumer Affairs Shane Rattenbury recently agreed to implement a national scheme for the regulation of gift cards, no matter where in Australia consumers purchased them. “With the exception of a few limited-use gift cards and vouchers, all gift cards bought from now on will automatically come with a minimum three-year expiry period,” Mr Rattenbury said. “Even if traders state an earlier expiry date, it will be invalid, and consumers will be entitled to the mandatory three-year period. It will also be illegal for traders to charge post-purchase or administration fees that will reduce the value of the gift card.” Access Canberra has received around 100 general complaints or enquiries about gift cards over the last five years. In 2016, industry bodies estimated that around 34 million gift cards are sold in Australia each year.

Blackberry botanical gin and tonic Recipe and image courtesy of Megann Evans for Fresh Aussie Berries | fresh berries.com.au Serves: 1

2 mangoes

60ml triple sec (orange liquor)

4 cups ice

To serve

500ml Aperol, chilled

Ice

750ml bottle Prosecco, chilled

Watermelon

750ml soda water, chilled

Lime wedges

Mango syrup

Coarse salt

2 mangoes 1 cup white sugar 1 cup water For the syrup, peel and roughly chop mango flesh. Place into a blender or processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to a saucepan. Add sugar and water. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, boil gently 3 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve into a jug. Set aside to cool. Pour into a sterilised bottle. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Peel and dice the flesh from mangoes. Divide ice among 10 glasses. Spoon 2 tablespoons of mango syrup into each glass. Top each with 50ml Aperol and 75ml Prosecco. Top with diced mango then soda.

120ml good quality tonic

If you don’t drink alcohol, or you’re catering for someone who doesn’t, never fear! We’ve got you covered in that department, too.

1 sprig of rosemary 3 fresh blackberries (keep 1 for garnish) Ice Fill a gin glass (we recommend a cut-glass tumbler) full with ice. Add gin, tonic water and then stir. Top with a sprig of rosemary. Smash 2 fresh blackberries between your fingers until the juices release, place into the glass, then top with a fresh, whole blackberry.

Blend watermelon flesh until very smooth. Pass juice through a sieve if desired, discarding any solids. Add watermelon juice, passionfruit pulp, lime juice, tequila and triple sec to a jug with a handful of ice. Stir well. Pour salt onto a small plate to ½cm depth. Run a lime wedge around the rim of a glass and dip immediately into the salt. Fill the salt-rimmed glass with ice, repeat lime and salt rim with remaining glasses. Divide margarita mixture across the glasses, garnish with watermelon and lime to serve. Tip: For a mocktail alternative, omit the tequila and triple sec, add ¼ cup (60 ml) fresh orange juice and 1 cup (250 ml) sparkling water. Skip step 3, as the salt is not required.

Mocktails: The humble mocktail doesn’t get the credit it deserves, in our opinion! Treat your guests (or yourself) to a delicious alcohol-freecreation – check out Pinterest for a myriad of ideas or try your hand at the mocktail version of the passionfruit and watermelon margarita. No-alcohol ‘spirits’: Growing in popularity, non-alcoholic ‘spirits’ are designed to take the place of their alcoholic counterparts, great for use in cocktails if you want a specific taste. Lyre and Fluere are two examples of these.

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Butter a 12-hole muffin tin and dust with flour. Invert the tin and tap lightly to get rid of excess flour. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface until 3mm thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut out twelve 10cm discs. (You can use a tartlet tin to cut the discs and create fluted edges.) Carefully line the muffin holes with the dough and gently press in the edges. Bake for about 15 minutes. Leave to cool completely before carefully removing the tartlet shells from the tins.

Curator of the National Archives of Australia Spy: Espionage in Australia exhibition Emily Catt hopes the exhibition stimulates discussion about the role of espionage in Australia. Photo: Kerrie Brewer.

Secrets and spies Intrigue, glamour, gadgets – throughout pop culture, spies and espionage have captured the public’s imagination but your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to separate fact from fiction. Bringing stories of spies out of the shadows and into the light, Spy: Espionage in Australia is a new exhibition at the National Archives of Australia (NAA), developed in partnership with Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO). “When we started researching for the exhibition, we knew we wanted to play on pop culture. That is very much reflected in the design of the exhibition. We wanted to give people something they were comfortable with and bust some myths,” NAA curator Emily Catt said. And, as it turns out, many of your pop culture heroes wouldn’t actually make a good spy. “James Bond would be a dreadful spy. He’s not very secretive about what he’s doing; he risks contacts, blows things up.” Instead, Catt highlighted Anne Neill, a war widow in her 50s who became a successful ASIO agent, as the antithesis of fictional spies. “Most Bond agents are very glamourous and very obvious, so Anne Neill was so strong and so good at her job because she was undetected.” Stories such as Neill’s are shared throughout the exhibition as Catt chose to focus on people rather 66

than get “bogged down” in dates and acronyms. “I looked at somewhere in excess of 700 records so it was a really in-depth research experience. With an exhibition, you only really see the tip of the iceberg of what we’ve looked at,” she said. “I sought out stories of individuals and what happened, what was the environment like around them.” Exploring the how and why of security and intelligence developments in Australia from Federation to the present day, the catalyst for the exhibition was ASIO releasing an official history. “ASIO allowed historians unfettered access to their collection and, with the release of these records, there were so many new ways for us to understand what we had in our collections,” Catt said. This is the first time that ASIO has actively contributed to a public exhibition, sharing original objects from their archives and collections, as well as allowing interviews that provide insight into the lives of ASIO officers. “That was a huge deal for us, particularly because there have been exhibitions that have touched on this topic in the past,” Catt said. “For me, it was very important to tell something that hadn’t been seen before.” The exhibition also features two children’s trails with physical interactions and the

Take 5: Steven Gates Widely known as a member of musical-comedy trio Tripod, Steven Gates (Gatesy) is teaming up with Paul McDermott (Doug Anthony All Stars) for Paul McDermott & Gatesy Go Solo. Friends for 18 years, and singing together in private for five, the duo are bringing their talents to the stage at The Playhouse, Canberra Theatre Centre on Thursday 5 December.

1

How did you and Paul become friends? Just bumping into each other at comedy events, gigs and parties. We met at the 1999 ARIA Awards but became good mates during the ABC’s Sideshow: Paul hosted and Tripod were part of the weekly cast. Sideshow was a highlight for both of us … There was nothing like it and every week seemed like a party.

2

How different is it working with Paul compared to Tripod or solo? Working in any group situation is challenging. The older you get, you become more aware of what it is you want to say or be part of. A trio can get things done quickly as everything is decided democratically. A duo can get stuck if there are differences of opinion because there is no deciding factor. On stage though, I don’t

have to work as hard as I do in a trio – I talk when Paul stops. He starts when I stop. Easy.

3

What do you attribute your longevity in comedy to? I credit my colleagues in Tripod for this one. We all grew up with our audience and the material reflects that. We never wanted to repeat ourselves and we only want to do the festivals if we have something new to say. We’ve over-reached at times but thankfully we’ve grown out of those experiences. We almost burnt out in the early days by doing too much but, thankfully, we grew out of that, too.

4

What makes a good song? Wow. In a world where it seems we’ve heard everything before, a good song, for me, is one

that stands out, makes a point in the most direct and sincere way possible, surprises then moves on. I could say that about all art and that’s why art is fun to talk about. There’s no right or wrong.

Have you spent much time in Canberra over the years? Spent a long enough time in Canberra to say The Phoenix Pub is my favourite Australian bar! Quote me on that. Sadly I can’t say that anymore as it seems to no longer be with us. Boo, Canberra, booooo!

Jack Reacher is the classic action figure. A former military policeman who roams America like a modernday Western hero, Reacher appeals to a wide range of readers and his books are regularly found on the top of bestseller lists. In Blue Moon, Reacher becomes caught between two rival criminal gangs when he tries to help an old couple in debt to a loan shark. Briskly paced and full of action, it hurtles towards the violent climax. A good, light holiday read, with some unexpected touches of humour. A must for the Reacher aficionado in your family.

Tennis is an essential part of Australia’s summer and this attractive book is a lovely reminder of the period between 1952 and 1973 when we were a tennis superpower. Written by Rod Laver, one of the greatest players to come out of Australia, and journalist, Larry Writer, it is a fascinating account of the golden period of Australian tennis. Drawing on Laver’s personal experiences and insights, and interviews with many of the stars from that time, such as John Newcombe and Margaret Court, it provides a fresh perspective on those years. A great Christmas gift and a good book to dip into over the summer of tennis.

Those after some light humour this Christmas will appreciate this guide to modern behaviour by Kitty Flanagan. Based on her popular TV segment on The Weekly, it proposes a set of rules to make life less irritating and the world more pleasant. From advising old men to cut off their ponytails, “it probably wasn’t even cool way back when you were young”; to flying advice, “only people in the aisle seats may stand up before the door is opened”; to office decorum, “don’t write ‘pleased to e-meet you’ at the top of an email. You lost me at ‘e’”, it is full of painfully funny and honest tips for life.

The Last Hunt by Deon Meyer

Bantam, $32.99

Hodder & Stoughton, $32.99

Also amusing is Christmas Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. This is the ninth book in her popular, romantic, chicklit series about shopaholic Becky Brandon (nee Bloomwood). This time around, Becky agrees to host the family Christmas lunch. A simple enough task until she has to deal with her sister demanding a vegan turkey, the reappearance of an old boyfriend and his pushy new girlfriend, her online shopping addiction, and her husband refusing to give any useful tips about a Christmas present. There are plenty of laugh-aloud moments as she battles her way through, and a nice surprise at the end. Good fun.

Finally, those after more substance to their fiction reading will enjoy Deon Meyer’s tough thriller The Last Hunt, which also casts a sharp eye over recent events in his homeland of South Africa. Meyer is one of the best crime writers in the world and his books about Benny Griessel of the Elite Police Unit in Cape Town are superb examples of high-quality genre fiction. In the latest book, Benny is trying to work out who pushed an ex-cop off a luxurious train, while in France, a hero of the anti-Apartheid movement is sent on one last dangerous mission. Well written and incredibly suspenseful.

A new hyperreal sculpture, Skywhalepapa, by contemporary Australian artist Patricia Piccinini, a companion piece to Skywhale, 2013, is just one of the highlights of the National Gallery of Australia’s 2020 program. NGA director Nick Mitzevich said 2020 promised to be a defining year in the Gallery’s history. Audiences will share the art of women spanning two centuries in exhibitions such as Know My Name: Australian Women Artists 1900 to Now; The Body Electric; a large-scale installation by the Tjanpi Desert Weavers; and Club Ate’s digital project In Muva We Trust. In March, the first solo exhibition in Australia by XU ZHEN, one of China’s most significant artists and activists,

will go on display while there will also be a rare and exclusive chance to see works from the European masters –most have never previously travelled to Australia – in Botticelli to Van Gogh: Masterpieces from the National Gallery, London, opening November 2020. For more, visit nga.gov.au

Gallery On Track

Fisherman’s Friends (M)

Daniel Mays stars as a slick London music executive in Fisherman’s Friends.

A small group of friends who work at a London music managing group descend onto Cornwall for a buck’s party holiday. Falling for a prank, music executive Danny (Daniel Mays) is sent to enlist a group of local sea-shanty singing fishermen, who are weary of the true motives of the slick outsider. Irish sea-change movies seem to be a genre of their own. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and Leap Year show an outsider who becomes seduced by a little village’s way of life amongst the beautiful rolling hills and coastline of Ireland. This movie is no different, riffing off of Doc Hollywood in pushing the capitalism angle even further. Danny and his friends, while likeable, are products of their environment: ultra-competitive

music executive from London who think nothing more of piquing the hopes and dreams of some locals for laughs. Danny experiences the locals at the coalface: living in the home of Jim (James Purefoy) the lead shanty-singer, falling in love with his daughter, Alwyn (Tuppence Middleton) and understanding that he is going to be held against the promises he makes to this small but loyal group who value community and friendship over money and fame. Verdict: This movie is based on a real-life story of a group of underdogs who chart in the UK’s top 40. It’s a pity the movie forgoes any sense of realistic grit to deliver a formulaic product weighed down by genre clichés. 2.5 stars. - Luke McWilliams

Trekking at altitude I have just landed in Peru to do the Inca Trail up to Machu Picchu! The hardest thing with this trek is the altitude, not so much the terrain; when you trek in high altitude you have less oxygen for your body to use, so your body will be working harder without you even knowing it. Here are my top tips for trekking at altitude: • Take your time • Drink plenty of water • Snack on fruits (and some lollies are always good!) • Have an electrolyte drink as well as water • Make use of sports recovery gels • Dress in layers • Pack light • Stay focused: this is important as you may get lightheaded or feel sick – if this happens take a

break and have a cup of tea • Make sure your feet are prepared for trekking: keep them dry, do a few minutes of massage each day, make sure you have fresh socks and cover any ‘hot spots’ to avoid blisters • Take full breaths and breathe a little slower than usual - your body is using every bit of oxygen it is getting. If you’ve just finished a 10-hour day of trekking, chances are your body will feel tired and your legs sore. If you’ve got another trek tomorrow, how do you prepare? If you have a river close by, putting your legs in to help freshen them up (like an ice bath) is great way to do a recovery session. Alternatively, a pool session is a great way to help the body recover.

You’re in good Dental hands atEmbassy $125

Children 8-12 years

• Jump out of the pool and, lying on your back, do lower back rolls, left and right, keeping your upper back flat on the ground • Get a good night’s sleep Part of recovery is to hydrate and eat a nutritious meal to help recharge the batteries.

Top tips to make your tree shine While some overly-enthusiastic Christmastypes may have already set up their Christmas trees, for most, 1 December marks a suitable time to set up your tree, especially if it’s artificial. Looking for some inspiration on how to make your tree shine? Spotlight teamed up with Gemma Patford to share tips on how to decorate a tree that speaks to your personal style. • Select a theme. You might like to experiment with a new idea. Once you’ve selected your theme, select your colours. Be specific, choose 3-4 colours and don’t go overboard (unless that’s your theme). • If you’re using tinsel, always hang this fi rst. Try and push it into the tree branches so it’s half hidden. I love how hidden tinsel makes your tree look fuller and gives it a subtle sparkle! If you opt to forgo tinsel, consider making fabric garlands out of strips of velvet. Simply braid or drape long garlands of fabric into your tree like you would tinsel. It creates a beautiful luxurious effect. • Sort your decorations into colours, then,

if you have the energy, sort them into sizes. Hang the largest decorations fi rst. Emphasise the larger decorations with the smaller items. Go big or go home! Experiment with textures. Use fabric decorations alongside shiny decorations. Pop some fake flowers into the mix! Lengthen the hang length of your baubles by replacing the existing string with beautiful long ribbons. Make it personal. Create a personalised decoration for each member of the household. My mother-in-law cut our initials out of cardboard and decorated them with plastic gems. It’s a nice sentimental touch. Tree toppers are such a personal choice. I use the paper angel I made when I was a kid. Moths have eaten most of it, but regardless of how styled my tree is, I like to roll it out. For a neat way to store gifts, consider reusable sacks. A few handmade velvet Santa bags under the tree will look amazing and will save you a few wheelie bins of recycling.

in the garden

Blank canvas to native beauty Dave and Kaye Bishop have lived at their Yass, NSW property for a mere four years, and what has been achieved in the garden during this time is simply incredible. Aside from a couple of once-were poplar trees and a whole bunch of grassy weeds, the gently sloping, 1,800sqm urban block was an otherwise blank canvas when they first moved there from rural South Australia. Before designing the garden and dry creek riverbeds, Dave observed the position of the sun throughout the year, the lay of the land, and also the flow of water during rainfall. They initially imported soil for garden beds from their local landscape yard, which are now seasonally topped up with mulch from garden prunings. Boundary garden beds were deep ripped to break the compaction layer, promote plant growth and maximise aeration and water/nutrient absorption. Open areas, dry creek beds and some paths were covered with river pebbles. This wonderful garden boasts almost exclusively Australian native plants, except for a Claret Ash (Fraxinus angustifolia ‘Raywood’), grown to let in the winter sunlight, and a selfsown Seaside Daisy (Erigeron karvinskianus), perfectly complementary with nearby plantings. Dave said he developed a passion for growing and propagating Australian natives after spending 2.5 years in botanically devoid Antarctica for work. On his return, he promptly visited his local garden centre where he was encouraged to go native. Dave’s healthy obsession for propagating and growing Emu Bushes (Eremophila) began directly after –

there are 57 species growing in their garden so far. Dave has sourced an enviable collection of plants and cutting material for the garden from specialist garden centres, collectors and gardens past. Large growing shrubs and small trees have been planted within the property boundary to protect smaller and more sensitive plants from winter frosts and wind. Some of my favourite plants growing, aside from the Emu Bushes of course, were Allocasuarina verticillata and A. littoralis, Banksia robur, Chrysocephalum apiculatum (grey leaf form), Eucalyptus albopurpurea and E. pulverulenta, Hakea sericea, Isopogon formosus and Vanilla lily (Arthropodium milleflorum). To begin with, invasive grassy weeds were controlled with herbicide spray, but are now only occasionally seen and then removed by hand. Plants are watered by hand using tank, mains and occasionally bore water. Dave said most plants are drought tolerant and usually only require additional water during establishment. No fertilisers are used. When Dave isn’t pottering in the home garden, he volunteers and contributes to several organisations, such as Yass Landcare and the National Botanic Gardens seed bank. A standout is Dave’s energy and motivation to share his knowledge and reverence of Australian native plants; he runs native plant propagation classes for anybody interested. Dave and Kaye have also opened the garden to several garden clubs and a steady stream of enthusiasts, myself included. Check out Dave’s FB page: YASS Australian Native Plants.

One City Hill marks start of construction Peter Blackshaw sets new auction price record Construction has officially begun on Morris Property Group’s (MPG) One City Hill development in the City, the first edition of residences in The Barracks precinct. “This is a significant milestone for the project. We’re thrilled to formally mark the commencement of works in what will be one of Canberra’s most iconic residential developments,” said director and founder of Morris Property Group, Barry Morris. “One City Hill represents the best of contemporary Canberra living. Situated in the very heart of the Capital’s vibrant city, these apartments offer luxury and convenience for residents. It is a privilege to be involved in such an important project.” The development will feature one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments, with the buildings designed to echo the geometry of Lake Burley Griffin and strike a balance between privacy and allowing views across parkland and beyond. “We’ve designed One City Hill for all generations – from singles to downsizers, working couples to families. This is a unique

opportunity to secure a home in a breathtaking location,” Mr Morris said. For more information, visit The Barracks display suite on London Circuit in the City (near Farrell Place), open weekdays 10am-2pm and weekends 10am-3pm, or visit onecityhill.com.au

Canberra’s builders recognised Canberra builders were recognised at the Master Builders National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards, held over the weekend at Uluru, with a win in each sector of the industry: residential, commercial and civil construction. Classic Constructions and Melinda Boag Design took out the National Display Home $500,000 to $1.5 million category for ‘The

Balcombe’ in Denman Prospect; Pier Projects and Oztal Architects were awarded the National Commercial/Industrial Construction Award – under $5 million, for the Shaw Wines Cellar Door in Murrumbateman; and the Civil Infrastructure Award – under $25 million went to Guideline ACT and the Transport Canberra and City Services Directorate for the Isabella Weir upgrade.

A sale in the Canberra suburb of Red Hill has seen the ACT’s auction record smashed by $100,000. 30 Mugga Way was sold under the hammer on Sunday 24 November for $5.85 million, by Peter Blackshaw Manuka sales consultant, Mario Sanfrancesco, and Peter Blackshaw managing director, Andrew Chamberlain,. Sanfrancesco said auction day was emotional for the sellers, as the home had been in the family for over 30 years. The buyers are a local ACT family, who first saw the home at the premarket VIP viewing. “The home presented a rare opportunity to buyers – it’s not often that a home of this calibre, set on a large [5,110sqm] block comes to market – as well as backing onto Red Hill Nature Reserve,” Sanfrancesco said. “Buyers looking for this calibre of property are quite particular in their requirements. When they find a property that meets those requirements, they are willing to act quickly – so marketing campaigns at this level need to create both impact and urgency.” He said sales at this end of the market are increasing, with “ripe” conditions to secure highcalibre properties. Chamberlain said Canberra has seen four sales over $5 million in recent months, a “great sign for Canberra, showing not only that the market is strong, but also that there are buyers out there looking for properties across the entire market spectrum”. The previous auction record was set with the sale of a house in Deakin for $5.75 million in 2017.

Southern charm Hughes 34 Brand Street In the South Canberra suburb of Hughes sits this charming fivebedroom family residence. LJ Hooker Weston Creek general manager and senior sales consultant, Jane Kusetic, says this home sits on tightly-held Brand Street; the street’s first property on the market in the past two years. It’s a “quiet loop street” with no through traffic, and sits in the catchment area for Hughes Primary School and Alfred Deakin High School. “It is located close to parkland, a playground and you don’t need to cross any roads to get to Hughes Primary School – great for the kiddies,” she says.

“The Hughes Shops and Primary School are a five-minute walk.” Bursting with character, this home features four bathrooms in the main house, including a master with built-in robes and ensuite, and a fifth bedroom in the loft space above the garage. “The home is filled with character and is perfectly liveable now, or you could add your own updates as well, as the previous owners have,” Kusetic says. The living room boasts a gorgeous fireplace for the cool Canberra winters, while the open plan kitchen and dining space leads you out to the back deck,

taking in the stunning garden views. The kitchen has been recently renovated, featuring stone benchtops and an enormous island bench. The native gardens include a vegetable patch and grassed area for kids and pets to play outdoors. “Set amidst sprawling native gardens, this exceptional residence enjoys a northerly front aspect with room for the whole family and is perfect for entertaining with three separate living areas as well as space for alfresco dining,” Kusetic says. “With the loft area upstairs it

is great for interstate visitors, a young family with an au pair or family with teenagers/kids in their early 20s”.

It is a 10-minute drive to the city, Woden and Belconnen and provides easy access to major arterial roads. Stromlo Leisure

Centre is also due to open in 2020. “This property is positioned a short walk to the new Molonglo Health Hub with Early Learning Centre, medical practice, chemist, veterinary clinic, gym and more,” she says. “This property is positioned in a quiet family-friendly street that has a real community vibe. The home has been very well looked after and presents “as new”; a very high quality home.” The home is available to purchase outright, or on the ACT Land Rent Scheme.

Bee Movie

Friday, 9GO!, 5.45pm, G (2007)

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld buzzes onto the big screen in this animated feature about everything – everything related to the world of bees, that is. Seinfeld, who wrote the film, voices its hero Barry B. Benson, a freespirited bee who shuns his role in the honeymaking process to broaden his horizons beyond his busy hive. Barry is horrified to find supermarkets selling honey.

Beauty And The Beast

Sunday, 7MATE, 7pm, PG (1980)

Misadventure and hijinks abound at an exclusive golf club, where the wealthy and poor take up the class struggle on the fairways. Brimming with outrageous performances, this one breaks all the rules. Chevy Chase (pictured) is a hoot as a wise playboy. Great set pieces and some sidesplitting humour.

November 29

Saturday, 9GO!, 7pm, PG (2017) Belle is no ordinary Disney princess. She reads, she fights, she tells it like it is and follows her own rules and Emma Watson (pictured) brings the right amount of grace and grit to this live-action retelling of the 1991 animation favourite. The set and costume details are exquisite and the writers have done a marvellous job filling in some plot holes from the original. Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) is unrecognisable as the surly Beast. >i<

celebrity birthday

GAEL GARCIA BERNAL 30 November 1978

Gael needs to avoid being too tetchy with his friends and loved ones during the year ahead. He may mean well, but will come across as pushy and because of this will put others offside. A good dose of regular sport and physical activity will release tension and this will let him smooth down the way he deals with people in his personal life. He will gain a lot of satisfaction from being out in the fresh air.

You will receive a great deal of help at work from others, especially females, some of whom may be in a position of seniority or have specialised knowledge they’re prepared to share. Those in positions of power are going to be of major help to you in achieving your goals.

Partnerships and relationships are going to be of paramount importance to you this month. Not all relationships are going to be pleasant as there could be some confrontations. There could also be the news of a divorce or separation among those closest to you.

You might travel or take the time to investigate a part of the world which you have always fancied knowing better. Your work could take you into a business venture which involves overseas goods, services, property or selling to foreigners, thereby learning about them and their way of living.

Work will be important to you this month. You could find your job becoming more interesting or you start to do something new and highly satisfying. You will have to get to grips with paperwork, book keeping, important emails, updating your technology or learning to use new equipment.

My favourite things

FAMILY My parents and older brother Sam have always supported me in school, football and everyday life and I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today without them. Plus, I just love spending time with them.

GREAT OUTDOORS Growing up, I always went camping and bushwalking with my family around Mount Kosciuszko. When I was 14, my brother, dad and I walked the overland track in Tasmania, which was amazing.

GUITAR

Laura Hughes Canberra United

A midfielder for Canberra United, 18-year-old Laura Hughes first took up the sport playing with her brother in the backyard about age six. Two years later, Laura joined her first club, Tuggeranong United. When she was 12, Laura said her dad started taking her to Canberra United games at McKellar Park. “I absolutely loved watching my idols Sally Shipard, Caitlin Munoz and Michelle Heyman play, which is why it is so special for me to follow in their footsteps and play for Canberra United,” she said. “United has the best fan base in the league and I hope I can inspire the next generation to pursue their football dreams.” Canberra United’s next home game is against the Brisbane Roar on Thursday 5 December 7.30pm at McKellar Park. 194

For the last year or so I have been teaching myself how to play guitar via YouTube. It gives me a good outlet away from sport and I enjoy learning my favourite songs. I am currently learning My Heart Will Go On.

DOG I have a purebred Kelpie called Speedo. I got her when I was eight and she always knows how to cheer me up. When she was a puppy, I taught her how to play dead; it’s a great party trick for other people.

MOVIES One of my favourite things to do in my downtime is to watch a good movie. I have a lot of favourite movies including Titanic, Hacksaw Ridge and Hot Fuzz.
