This week...

With a few unfortunate exceptions, the bushfires have brought out the best in most people, here and abroad. Offers of on-theground assistance and financial donations continue to pour in from around the world. In our own community, mercifully free of bushfires so far, yet choking on the incessant smoke, heaps of fundraising efforts have sprung up – from concerts and trivia nights to kids’ lemonade stands and rattling the tin at community events. In the days following the devastating fires that hit communities along the NSW South Coast and Eastern Gippsland in Victoria, a local Facebook group sprang up to offer emergency accommodation or rest stops for weary travellers fleeing the fire grounds. Government funding and respected charitable organisations such as the Red Cross have mobilised to provide support in the recovery phase. Everyone impacted by the fires can take heart in knowing they are not alone. It’s a generous response that exemplifies the best of Australia. Reasons to be grateful this past week include the seemingly tireless efforts of firefighters, first responders and support crews, an interesting, albeit hazy, opening night at the Openair Cinemas screening of Ford v Ferrari at the Patrick White Lawns, restorative yoga classes indoors, an indulgent spot of omphaloskepsis (navelgazing), alfresco dinner with friends on a relatively clear and mild night, mobile phones and Vietnamese noodle salad. - Julie Samaras

news Businesses feel economic impact from bushfires, smoke Local businesses are feeling the effects of the NSW bushfires with the smoke haze and related conditions prompting closures, loss of custom and reduced spending. CEO of the Canberra Business Chamber, Dr Michael Schaper, said outdoor, construction and seasonal businesses are being hit hardest by the conditions as people opt to stay home.

Many local businesses are being hit hard as people opt to stay home. Getty

However, he said it is important the community continues to “keep supporting local business” as well as the South Coast region. “I think as soon as the opportunity arises, we need to go back and support areas like the South Coast,” Dr Schaper said. “But also, people are inclined to stay home rather than go out. It would be good if you got a mask and go out here as soon as you feel comfortable.” The deterioration of air quality earlier in the month saw a number of national institutions close their doors, including Questacon and the National Gallery of Australia, while the National Zoo & Aquarium was also closed at one point for the safety of their animals, staff and visitors. Dr Schaper said businesses faced a tough decision when it came to being open for business or closing their doors due to the conditions. He said the Chamber has created a fact sheet to help negotiate the current situation of Canberra region

businesses affected by fire or smoke. The Chamber has also made an offer of desk space to work from, free of charge, to businesses from impacted areas. For more information, call 6247 4199. Meanwhile, a number of industries are expected to suffer as a direct result of the NSW bushfires, with the NSW Business Chamber suggesting ramifications could be felt for “years to come”. Damian Kelly from the NSW Business Chamber said a key factor is the “sheer magnitude of the devastation and the time it will take to regenerate, rebuild and the time to get back into places to do so”. “It’s a significant impact no doubt about that. We don’t know the full extent and won’t know for some time. We do know that there will be significant ramifications for months and years to come.” Mr Kelly said they are aware of several industries that will suffer as a result of the bushfires, such as damaged apple orchards at Batlow, and South Coast tourism at

Bateman’s Bay and beyond. “It’s not only their tourism sector but the flow-on effect,” he said, which includes local coffee shops, supermarkets and butchers as visitors tend to spend locally for supplies. “They are going to need a lot of support and people spending money in the area.” The NSW Rural Fire Service (RFS) issued a statement late last week encouraging tourists to return to the Far South Coast and areas of the Shoalhaven. People wishing to take advantage of the tourist areas are strongly encouraged to contact their destination/accommodation providers before setting off. Areas that were heavily impacted by the fires remain accessible to local residents only. Visitors are also asked to stay up to date on conditions by checking the NSW RFS website or Fires Near Me app, as well as monitoring roads via Live Traffic NSW. - Allison Turnbull

Bushfires a sign of ‘future climate extremes’ As Australians continue to assess the damage from bushfires across the country, attention has now turned to the ongoing debate about climate change and extreme weather events. Climate scientist and ACT 2019 Scientist of the Year, Dr Sophie Lewis, a senior lecturer at UNSW Canberra, said increasing temperatures globally from climate change means temperature extremes have become more frequent and severe, and will continue to do so, including for Australians. “We have also seen an increase in fire danger in Australia, including longer fire seasons and more severe fires. What we are experiencing in Australia right now is part of this trend and a sign of future climate extremes we will experience,” Dr Lewis said. 8

“This trend in increasing fire dangers is quite clear in the observational record. Scientists haven’t yet had a chance to look at the specific drivers of this event but this is what we expect from the overall trend from climate change. We are seeing that climate change kick in the events this last summer.” Dr Lewis said Australians should be expecting bushfires to worsen in the future, and should be planning for “more severe fires and longer seasons”. “We need to be doing more to mitigate these events – we should be reducing greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible and adapting and planning for more severe seasons … we need to be paying attention and learning as much as we can from these events. The risks and health impacts are considerable and

will affect Canberra and the region.” As the fires continue to burn, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has released its annual climate statement, which showed 2019 as Australia’s warmest and driest year on record since consistent national records began in 1910 and 1900 respectively. In the ACT, rainfall was “well below” average, particularly for winter and spring, with the Canberra Airport experiencing its driest year since 1982. The annual mean maximum temperature at Canberra Airport was the warmest on record, with every month above average. BOM’s head of climate monitoring, Karl Braganza, said the warm and dry conditions in 2019 are “one of the key factors influencing recent and current fire conditions in large parts of the country”.

“January last year was the warmest month Australia has ever recorded, while just a few weeks ago in December, we saw the Australia-wide record hottest daily average maximum temperature broken multiple days in a row,” Dr Braganza said. “At the same time, rainfall deficiencies across large parts of eastern Australia have continued to increase, unfortunately exacerbating both drought conditions and the current bushfires. “The other key factor at play is that Australia’s climate has warmed by more than a degree since 1910, which means very warm years like 2019 are now more likely to occur, while the trend in recent decades has been for drier winter and spring seasons in the south.” - Libby Kimber

news Smoke haze expected to linger Poor air quality is expected to be an ongoing issue for the ACT as long as bushfires continue in the region, with Canberra’s topography also contributing to the lingering haze. Professor Janette Lindesay from the Fenner School of Environment and Society at the Australian National University (ANU), said Canberra’s location – featuring iconic hills and ridges and a series of valleys – lends itself to smoke “accumulating and

sitting in the atmosphere”, which is then difficult to disperse. “We are getting a lot of high pressure system activities which means low wind speed, if any, so it doesn’t move the smoke,” Professor Lindesay said. “We need to get some strong effective rain-producing systems coming through to move the air mass out and take the smoke with it.” For the most benefit, Professor Lindesay said the wind “has to come from the north because that’s the only place where there are no fires”.

prove beneficial in helping clear the air, however acknowledged it can bring its own problems with the smoke and dust that was in the air entering the water supply. “When you get a big concentration of that … that causes problems in terms of potability of the water and whether it is safe to drink,” she said. It could also have an impact on fresh water and marine ecology. In terms of the long-term impact of smoke, Professor Lindesay said “it is not really known what the long-term consequences of what this smoke will be and we may not know for decades”. Environmental health expert, Professor Sotiris Vardoulakis, from the ANU said bushfire smoke is a major public health concern. “These very small particles in bushfire smoke can penetrate deep into the respiratory system inducing inflammation and even translocate

“We have a crescent of fires around us and that’s very unusual,” she said. “Fires are generally in one part or another, not everywhere at once around the ACT and they usually haven’t been around for so long.” With rain forecast for later this week, Professor Lindesay said it could

into the blood stream,” Professor Vardoulakis said. “For most people, it is like smoking a few cigarettes a day – it is increasing the risk of developing lung and heart disease in their lifetime.” While communities have been impacted broadly by the bushfires, Professor Lindesay said the fires will also be a catalyst to further research. She said while Australia already has a great deal of research going on about bushfires, “what I see emerging at the moment is a resurgence in interest in Indigenous burning and land practices and I think that’s really important”. “There’s been a tendency to conduct science with a Western perspective … and perhaps not enough attention has been paid to the ways that Indigenous people manage the landscape.” - Allison Turnbull

ACT Rural Fire Service (RFS) and SES volunteers will be able to access payments for their service, on equivalent terms offered to volunteer firefighters in NSW. ACT Emergency Services Minister Mick Gentlemen and Chief Minister Andrew Barr wrote to the Prime Minister to request financial support for the ACT RFS and SES, who have been supporting firefighters in both NSW and Queensland since September. “Longer and more severe fire seasons due to climate change are creating an even greater need for

our volunteer firefighters,” Minister Gentlemen said. “This compensation will ensure those who are self-employed or are employed by a small to medium sized employer aren’t left out of pocket. “I would also like to thank employers in the ACT who provide volunteers with emergency services leave, which is crucial to supporting their efforts.” The payments will cover the period from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020, and will be accessible from next month for those eligible.

Kings Highway to re-open The Kings Highway between Canberra and Batemans Bay was due to re-open to traffic on Tuesday afternoon, 14 January, in a major boost to impacted communities. NSW Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said re-opening the roads is “critical to supporting recovery efforts and movement of supplies into the region – as well as supporting the return of

visitors to the area”. Work to repair the fire-impacted 43 kilometre section of highway included the removal of around 1,200 hazardous trees, and the repair of 43 damaged guardrails and 500 ‘cats eye’ reflector lights. A number of fires are still burning on the NSW South Coast and motorists should be prepared for conditions to change quickly.

Have your say on SPIRE Members of the community can have their say on the ACT Government’s SPIRE project in Garran, with an inquiry calling for public submissions. The Standing Committee on Planning and Urban Renewal inquiry is into planning for the Surgical Procedures, Interventional Radiology and Emergency (SPIRE) Centre and the Canberra Hospital campus and immediate surrounds. 12

Written submissions should be lodged by Friday 14 February. The Committee also intends to hold public hearings in March to assist its inquiry.

one-off column Bushfires and climate change: how we can make a difference today By Dr Aparna Lal (PhD), Research School of Population Health, ANU. As out-of-control bushfires burn to the city’s east and west, the air quality in the nation’s capital has been among the worst of any major city in the world. In the shopping centres, some people look tired and anxious, as everyone seeks to protect their families and loved ones from the ongoing smoky air. For many, these events are making climate change more immediate and relevant to daily life. People are thinking about what they can do and how they should respond. I have three young children and for me, climate change is personal. I am a public health scientist at the Australian National University. My research looks at how a changing environment,

including climate, can impact our health. Along with a growing number of scientists, I examine who is most vulnerable to the health impacts related to extreme weather events. I believe that the choices we all make today will determine the cost to our planet and our ability to protect it for future generations. And I’m optimistic about that future. Why? Because there are things we can do to make a difference. If we all work together, we can have an impact. Here is my top five list of things we can all do today: 1. Start a conversation with your friends, neighbours and family. Climate change will impact our everyday lives: what we eat, the water we drink, our lifestyles and our freedom to make the choices we currently have. As I walk around Canberra today, I

see fear. I hear parents talking in whispers about their local shops running out of face masks and air purifiers. Take this opportunity to have the conversation about bushfires, the high temperatures and drought that contributed to it and, more broadly, climate change. Be informed, not alarmed. The science is out there. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the world’s most authoritative source of the science, has made all of their science free and easily accessible. 2. Swap ‘stuff’ for ‘time’. We are all time-poor, a situation, I believe, made worse by technology which enables us to write “just one more email” and disables our ability to be present and engaged. As a parent, I am very aware of this. As a family without a car, we spend a lot of time on our bicycles and

various forms of public transport. Almost every journey, I see a child and parent on separate gadgets or a child with a new toy in hand, because they were “good” at the shops. What if we spent more time with our children and loved ones? We are not doing our children or the planet any favours by buying more plastic toys or gadgets. 3. Reconnect with nature. It’s important to experience the natural world and strengthen our connection to it. We can do this by walking in nature, gardening and witnessing the recovery of our native plants and animals. We are lucky here in Canberra that we have bushwalks at our doorstep and the mountains and beaches a car ride away. Human nature dictates that we don’t feel the need (continued page 16)

Canberra has one of the highest rates of scientists per 1,000 people in the country! Scientists are very good at talking to other scientists through peer-reviewed journal articles. We need to do a much better job of communicating the urgency of our message and the power of every person and corporation to make a difference.

A 26-year-old man was expected to face court on Monday 13 January charged with one count of murder following the death of a man on Saturday 11 January. About 1.30am, ACT police responded to reports of a disturbance at a residence on Cartwright Street, Charnwood. A 27-year-old man with stab wounds was transported to hospital by ACT Ambulance Service Paramedics, however he died a short time later. Police initiated an extensive search around the North Canberra region for the 26-year-old man, who subsequently handed himself in at City Police Station about 4.30pm on 11 January.

NSW Police have also reported that a man is dead and another is under police guard after a fight west of Yass on Monday 13 January. Emergency services were called to a property on Glenroy Road at Good Hope, 20km south-west of Yass, about 2.45am, and found a man suffering a stab wound. He died at the scene. A second man was found nearby also suffering stab wounds and was taken to Canberra Hospital where he remained under police guard (as at 13 January). A crime scene has been established and investigations are underway by detectives attached to The Hume Police District.

The Cavs recorded an 11-4 win in game two while heavy rain forced the cancellation of game four on Saturday 11 January. Each team was given half a win under rule 7.7.4. This rule was also implemented following the cancellation of Canberra’s round seven series against Adelaide due to hazardous air quality, with both the Cavs and the Giants awarded two wins from the four-game series. The Cavalry are scheduled to host Auckland Tuatara in a home series starting today, Thursday 16 January.

The latest in foodie news, events and products. CRFM bushfire appeal The Capital Region Farmers Market (CRFM) has launched a bushfire appeal, with many of the market’s stallholders affected by the bushfire crisis. The Farmers Market Community Bushfire Appeal will assist those farmers market families who have been affected, through short-term support including financial contributions, clean-up assistance, new and used equipment, mental and social support and administrative business support. The Rotary Club of Hall, which owns and manages the CRFM, kicked off the appeal with a donation of $50,000. CRFM manager Sarah Power says a number of stallholders across the NSW South Coast, Snowy Mountains, South West Slopes and Southern Highlands

have experienced partial or total destruction of property equipment and stock. She says the best way for Canberrans to show their support is to continue to “shop local”. The CRFM has re-opened for the year, open most Saturdays 7.3011.30am. For more information on the bushfire appeal, visit capitalregionfarmersmarket.com.au

cover story

Liv Hewson: from Hughes to Hollywood Canberra actor Liv Hewson has made significant strides in the extremely competitive Hollywood film industry since first venturing over to Los Angeles fresh out of Canberra College in 2014. “Moving over there was unlike anything I’ve ever done, it was a very different city and it took me a little while to find my feet in it,” Hewson says. Their most recent work sees Hewson take to the silver screen alongside formidable company in the newsroom, #metoo, biographical drama, Bombshell. Bombshell is a revealing look inside Fox News, and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it. Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie and John Lithgow are among the all-star cast, while Hewson’s minor yet prominent role sees them play a member of former Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly’s team, portrayed masterfully by Academy Award winner Charlize Theron. “She’s just a powerhouse and it was wonderful to be able to watch her work. The work she does in this film is incredible,” Hewson says of Theron.

24

Hewson says the process of getting cast in Bombshell proved relatively straight forward. “I remember getting the email asking me to audition, and it was like ‘there’s this film, here’s what it’s about, who’s involved, do you want to audition,’ and I said ‘of course, of course I do’. “I went in to read and Jay (Roach) the director was there and then I got it. It was a very simple process.” Hewson felt so compelled by the work due to their belief in the themes behind it. “I felt a responsibility to go right by the story, and treat the subject matter with the greatest amount of care possible. Being able to pour our energy into that was quite cathartic, I think. “I didn’t know much about the events the film is based on prior to filming but I knew a little bit, and I had the sense that it was important. “I also had the sense going in to audition for it that even if I didn’t get it, it wouldn’t matter because I’m excited to see it. And when I feel that way about a project, I know it will be good,” they say. Hewson says of everything they've accomplished in their burgeoning career, Bombshell is a work

they feel most proud of. “It’s a bit surreal I think. I’m obviously thrilled, and I’m just delighted that I got such compelling and interesting material to work with. “I’ve seen it three times – the most I’ve seen something I’ve been in,” they say. It’s been several years since Hewson left their family home in the leafy Canberra suburb of Hughes for the bright lights of Los Angeles. Hewson says the differences between Canberra and LA were amplified on their first visit home. “It was just the population density. I came back to Canberra was walking around like ‘where is everyone’; I went ‘oh, this is everyone’ (laughs). It felt like a ghost town and I had to adjust to that.” Given the polarity between the cities, Hewson says there was a significant adjustment process at first, but is now settled and happy in LA. “I learned a lot about myself through that process as well I think … It was a lot of stuff everybody learns about themselves in their early 20s, what is now just grown-up stuff for me,” Hewson says. “It was a challenging time, one I’m grateful for, and one I’m still in.” Hewson says they get home once a year over Christmas these days, and cherishes their time here. “I was just there which was lovely but heartbreaking,” they say, referring to the pervasive bushfire smoke Canberra has been experiencing of late. Bombshell is out in cinemas from today, 16 January. - Denholm Samaras

Book talk This week, Michael Popple reviews three exciting new pieces of crime fiction. You can find more of Michael’s book reviews on his blog: unseenlibrary.com Just Watch Me by Jeff Lindsay Orion, $29.99

Riley Wolfe is the world’s greatest thief and he lives to steal from the super-rich and the powerful. However, Wolfe’s next audacious heist could be his last as the bored thief becomes obsessed with the impossible, stealing the Crown Jewels of Iran from the most secure vault in the world. With impenetrable defences and a small army protecting it, can even a true master of the heist succeed? From the author of the bestselling Dexter books comes this fun and gripping crime thriller. Featuring a great premise, an addictive plot and obsessed characters, this amazing book is well worth checking out.

Magnus and the Crossroads Brotherhood by Robert Fabbri Corvus, $39.99

Ancient Rome’s criminal underground is filled with all manner of rogues and villains, but none are more devious than Magnus, leader of the South Quirinal Crossroads Brotherhood. Working for both his gang and his patron, Senator Gaius Vespasius Pollo, there is nothing Magnus won’t do to make a profit, and woe betide anyone who crosses him. Set amongst Fabbri’s Vespasian series, this book is an outstanding collection of short stories, each of which features a different type of criminal undertaking or an elaborate bit of payback. Filled with six enjoyable and fascinating tales, this is an excellent and highly recommended read.

What did it mean to have Orbison’s widow and his songwriting partner Joe Melson endorse what you’re doing? It was pretty overwhelming. I worked with Barbara first, then met Joe afterward. Getting their backing really put strength behind it for me, and gave me the confidence to perform it in my way. I just try to be myself and sing his songs the way I would if they were my own.

Take 5: Damien Leith 4 Damien Leith blew Australia away with his hauntingly beautiful rendition of Roy Orbison’s Crying on his way to winning the 2006 season of reality TV show, Australian Idol. Fourteen years on, a tribute album produced by Orbison’s widow, and countless tribute shows later, Leith brings his critically acclaimed Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison with Strings to The Street, 1 February 7.30pm; thestreet.org.au

1 13 – 29

What have you learned about Orbison that’s not well known or obvious? Everyone thinks of him as the guy with the glasses, dark suit, and barely spoke to the audience. But behind the scenes, Barbara told me he loved to dance. He had a real zest for life, he was a fun guy who loved to ride motorbikes and hang out with his friends. There’s a personal side to him that doesn’t come across.

When did you first realise your affinity for Orbison? I grew up listening to a lot of Roy Orbison … I come from a very musical house but I really got into Roy when I was on Australian Idol. When I performed one of his songs, his widow Barbara Orbison got in touch and said she really liked my performance, which motivated me to investigate his music and the man himself.

What do you think it is that’s drawn you so close to his music? It’s the style of his writing. Everyone knows his voice, it’s such a well recognised sound, but his writing often gets overlooked. Unique and dramatic, he would blend rock with opera with massive amounts of emotion.

5

Artists have covered Orbison’s music to great acclaim since the 1970s. What does it mean to be a part of that? It’s a real testament to his music that 50 years later there are so many people out there covering his songs. In A Star is Born, there’s a whole section talking about Orbison. It’s great to be a part of that club that’s been inspired by him and gets to keep his music alive. - Denholm Samaras Leith’s responses have been abbreviated for publication.

That’s arts & entertainment

1917 (MA15+)

At the height of World War I, Lance Corporal Will Schofield (George MacKay) and Lance Corporal Tom Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman), are given a mission: to hand-deliver a message to the 2nd Battalion of the Devonshire Regiment calling off their planned attack on the German forces, lest 1,600 men, including Blake’s brother, fall into a deadly trap. Based around a “fragment” of Alfred Mendes’ (Grandfather to 1917’s co-writer and director Sam Mendes) time in the First World War, this movie is shot as to appear as one continuous take. Far from being a gimmick, the technique immerses us into the environment of war, taking in the ghostly vistas while restricting our view and understanding of potential threats. While most war movies concentrate on the strategy of battle and plot mechanisms for dramatic

Discover the exhilaration and thrill of

Bushfire art appeal tension, 1917 is straight forward, akin to Saving Private Ryan, focusing on two soldiers and their mission: to traverse the war-torn French countryside to deliver a message. Any character development and/ or arcs are delivered subtly, all the while keeping the British ‘stiff upper lip’, a la Dunkirk. MacKay is a standout here. Wideeyed looking on the verge of death himself, Schofield is also ghost-like as he ploughs forward with his mission to, come hell or high water, deliver his lifesaving message. Verdict: A highly effective visceral and immersive experience that concentrates on the atmosphere of war over plot and character. A fantastic achievement that has received multiple Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Original Screenplay and Cinematography. 4.5 stars. - Luke McWilliams

Gold Creek’s Aarwun Gallery has announced a bushfire art appeal, and are calling on the public to donate artworks that will be given to bushfire victims. Director of Aarwun Gallery, Robert Stephens, is hoping to replicate a 2009 art appeal the gallery ran in response to the Victoria bushfires. “Art is not always adequately insured, and is certainly not replaceable … With the loss of so many homes, thousands of art works no doubt have been destroyed,” Stephens says. “I am appealing to people who have artworks they no longer enjoy or require and think that other people might enjoy them, to donate them to our bushfire appeal, so we can distribute the artworks to those who would like to replace paintings they have lost in the fires.” Donations can be dropped off at Aarwun Gallery, 11 Federation Square, Gold Creek, Nicholls; phone 6230 2055.

Back to school basics Starting school for the fi rst time is a major milestone for children and parents. Here, leading family relationship expert, Dr Karen Phillip, shares her tips to make the transition to school easy and fun: Have a few trial lunch days: Pack your child a lunch box at home and ensure they eat little lunch fi rst then big lunch; this is particularly important if all food is in one lunch box. And ensure they can unwrap their lunch. Shop together for school items: Check the school equipment list and make the shopping list together to help make it fun and exciting. Shop ahead to avoid last minute rushing and unnecessary stress. Ensure they are comfortable in their 32

new uniform look, and have them choose their lunch box and drink bottle or backpack. This allows them to have ownership of the school experience. Routine: Children need to be aware of the timeframe of preparing for school each morning. Set clear expectations and consequences so they understand. Remember, children have no concept of time under about 7 years old so telling them you have half an hour to get ready will mean nothing to them. Plan: Use a calendar or planner to show your child what is happening each day. This will help reduce any anxiety or confusion and get them ready for the day/ week ahead.

not know where their classroom is or where the toilets are. Show them the class area and toilets. Label everything: Labelling all items – clothing, bags, lunch box and drink bottle – will prevent your child losing or picking up a similar item belonging to someone else. It also assists the teacher to sort out correct belongings. Place their fi rst name and fi rst letter of surname at least.

Australia’s oldest and most trusted name in floor coverings celebrates 130 years Solomons Flooring is Australia’s oldest and most trusted name in floor coverings. They have been providing the very best products and service since 1890. Our network of over 60 retail stores nationally has Australia’s most extensive range of carpets, natural timber, laminate and vinyl floors. After a number of years in Fyshwick, Solomons has moved to new premises in the Erindale shopping precinct. The shop tastefully displays a large range of flooring, for those requiring a hard wearing surface at a great price, child or pet friendly, for a rental or maybe your dream home. Perhaps you wish to make a statement. Whatever the option, there’s a floor that will suit your needs and last for years to come. Solomons pride themselves on offering sound advice tailored to the individual needs of each customer. One size definitely does not fit all. If you have never been through the

process of having new floors installed, Solomons Flooring can take you through the maze and bring new life to your home. Typically, floors have a lifespan depending on the material and their application. Hindsight is a wonderful thing … avoid the pitfalls, make sure the right questions are being asked and you will make informed, common-sense decisions. The right floor for your budget and your home, and like many customers can testify, there’s always another floor to be sold or recommended with good service and a quality product. Solomons is now the only complete flooring shop in the Tuggeranong Valley, but offer its services to the whole Canberra region. They have completed many jobs in the rural areas surrounding Canberra and will of course travel if the economies of scale allow. The franchise owner comes from a background in cabinetmaking and looks forward to challenges, particularly when it comes

to timber and laminate floors. “Yes we can” – when you have a difficult project that requires a multi-skilled tradesman, he will be the first to step up to the plate and offer solutions. All minor works can be accommodated. Jackhammer tiled floors, remove a wall and rectify plaster and cornices, custom matching timber stair treads …. to name a few. The showroom is open: Mon – Fri 10am-5pm; Sat 10am-3pm. Make a showroom appointment outside these hours with a simple phone call.

home Savvy shopping Aussie families are expected to spend an average of $538 per child on school supplies and uniforms in 2020, representing a $62 or 13% increase on last year, according to YouGov’s Annual Back to School Research Report, commissioned by BIG W. Money-saving expert and author of Kill Bills!, Joel Gibson says there are some simple money solutions to help you save during back to school shopping. Advance planning: The research shows that early shoppers spend less. Just as you would with any other big-ticket item, do your research, look around and compare brands and prices. You’ll be surprised at the savings that can be made by shopping early. Fly solo at the shops: Pester power is real! Two-thirds of Aussie parents (65%) say they overspend on school supplies by buying nonessential items thanks to their eager

shopping companions. So if you’re keen to save that extra cash, play it safe and leave the kids at home. Get it online: Purchasing behaviour is changing rapidly with the average proportion of online shopping for back to school increasing by nearly 10% from 2019. It’s a great strategy for those wanting to stick strictly to the essentials on the list. In-store pick-up is another great option to save on delivery costs. Next year, try ‘before pay’: To minimise the impact on your household budget, write ‘before pay’ on a large jar, stick $10 in it every week this year and by next January, you’ll have $520 and back to school will be a breeze.

Whether working from home or in the office, there are clear physical and mental consequences that impact us through being sedentary – chronic disease, obesity and weight gain, back pain, depression, low energy and productivity.

Legal Aid to take over tenants advice service Legal Aid ACT will take over the Tenants Advice Service (TAS) from 1 April this year, after it was selected as the preferred tenderer by the Justice and Community Safety Directorate. The TAS provides legal advice to tenants and renters about renting issues in Canberra, and has previously been run by the Tenants Union ACT. Legal Aid has proposed to extend the opening hours of the TAS, and will offer complimentary services such as live chat. Research from UNSW suggests multigenerational living is on the rise, and planning needs to shift to meet these requirements, particularly for apartments. File image.

Multigenerational households on the rise: research New research from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) suggests multigenerational households are on the rise, with families reconsidering their living options and moving in with parents, children and grandparents. “You have young people who, increasingly, are unable to afford to leave home, and at the same time, you have [their parents and grandparents] experiencing perhaps similar financial stress,” says Senior Research Fellow from the UNSW City Futures Research Centre, Dr Edgar Liu. “We find that whether forced to live in the arrangement because of financial pressure or not, people like having their family around, and having that companionship and support. “It’s a way for families to stay connected, and allows for greater intergenerational connections ... especially for the older generation, they can be closer to the family and spend more time with

the grandkids.” Dr Liu says the fastest-growing age group for multigenerational household members are those over 65, and said the Royal Commission into aged care has seen an aversion to moving into aged care: “more families are considering providing that care and support themselves”. Dr Liu says while the experience is positive for some families, some arrangements may put strain on family relationships. “It’s quite hard to find a house with enough bedrooms that’s affordable, has reasonable access to jobs and services appropriate to the needs of each generation,” he says. “At the moment, much of the new housing we see are provided as apartments, and they are typically small with one to two bedrooms, which is not really suitable to most family arrangements. So it is a bigger planning issue around how we have the right mix of housing for people.”

Insurance claims skyrocket post bushfires As communities across Australia continue to assess the damage from the ongoing bushfire crisis, attention turns to insurance claims for damaged and destroyed properties. “Emergency response teams of assessors and claims specialists have been deployed to help customers process claims, and emergency accommodation and cash advances have been provided,” said Treasurer Josh Frydenberg in a statement on Tuesday 7 January. “Insurers have implemented a triage process to ensure the worst-affected policyholders receive urgent attention. “Approximately 20% of claims lodged have been processed and around half of these have been settled.” On 7 January, the Insurance Council of Australia CEO Rob Whelan said insurers had received over 8,900 claims since September from NSW, Queensland, Victoria and SA, with losses standing at $700 million. Many more claims are expected to be lodged in the coming weeks.

Developed by Amalgamated Property Group, The Griffin will feature a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, as well as luxurious three-bedroom

penthouses, all designed to maximise natural light and the stunning location, with some enjoying views over Lake Burley Griffin.

“Open-plan living areas within each home are designed for residents to relax in comfortable, expansive spaces,” says Amalgamated Property Group development manager, Michael D’Elboux. “Large windows frame the views and allow sunlight to stream into your home. Engineered timber floors provide a warmth and timeless character while providing real durability to the space.” The kitchens will feature large island benchtops, bespoke joinery and plenty of storage space, while bathrooms boast double basins and baths in the master suites. Each apartment will include Miele kitchen appliances, glass splashbacks and externally ducted rangehoods in the kitchens, as well as LED feature lighting. The penthouses feature all the same inclusions as the apartments, as well as boasting four-car garages, up to 232sqm of internal living space and up to 111sqm of outdoor entertaining space. “Within each home, spacious balconies are the ideal place for a morning coffee surrounded by nature,” Mr D’Elboux says. “Many of the balconies wrap

around the exterior, allowing residents to enjoy morning and evening light.” Beautifully landscaped gardens, an indoor pool and a state-ofthe-art gym will give The Griffin a resort-style feel, and residents will also have exclusive access to a concierge service. “The Griffin is also more than a collection of new buildings; it will become a community that inhabits a new urban environment. Amalgamated Property Group has reimagined the idea of place-making in a contemporary context, creating an inner-urban hub that seamlessly integrates with its Parkes locale,” says Mr D’Elboux.

2020 is a big year for Michelle. This is her year for getting herself together on all fronts and for building a secure foundation on which to create a highly successful future which will bring in huge rewards in 2024 and beyond. However, if she focuses too much on achievements and neglects her personal life, then she can expect some rather loud protests from her loved ones. Maintaining balance will her biggest test this year.

ARIES 21 MAR – 20 APR

CANCER 22 JUNE – 22 JULY

LIBRA 24 SEPT – 23 OCT

CAPRICORN 22 DEC – 20 JAN

An error of judgement is likely to cause confusion for someone close. It might not be the easiest thing to admit your mistake, but it will be well worth the agony once this has passed. Unexpected gains and losses on the money front are likely, so don't gamble your house away.

Learn to think before you speak if you want to maintain a healthy relationship with someone special in your life. There may be family or business wrangles, especially over property. These problems would be typical of a divorce, the end of a business partnership or a death in the family.

If you’re single, you might find you have a busy social calendar that is energised by Mars in your house of short distance journeys until 17 February. It’s quite likely that this will lead to romance, but don’t expect it to last very long.

TAURUS 21 APR – 21 MAY

LEO 23 JULY – 23 AUG

If you have school-aged children, you’ll be dealing with educational matters on their behalf and will most probably be drawn into their activities to varying degrees. At work, if you’re not used to working in a structured way, then you’ll learn to do so very quickly.

On the career front, you appear to have the authority to delegate to those around you. Use it and leave yourself free to go where you want, when you want – within reason. Not all relationships are going to be pleasant as there could be some major confrontations, especially with women.

The planets suggest changes in your domestic life this month. If this does not involve you directly, you will certainly be involved with helping close friends or family make changes in their lives. This definite domestic slant is certainly going to temporarily anchor you to your home.

Others seem to place a higher value on your talents and resources than you do. However, what transpires this month teaches you to have more confidence and self-belief. The focus is on building security for the future, so it’s time to get your fiscal position looking healthy and strong. In coming weeks, there will be new family groupings resulting from marriage, childbirth or divorce. If you have been sitting in a relationship or a job which has been long worn out, then this is the time when you will do something about it.

GEMINI 22 MAY – 21 JUNE

VIRGO 24 AUG – 23 SEPT

SAGITTARIUS 23 NOV – 21 DEC

PISCES 20 FEB – 20 MAR

You are being warned to be careful of being overly confident when it comes to dealing with relationships or special occasions you may have planned. Don’t leave anything to chance or things are sure to go haywire. Avoid indulging yourself at your loved one’s expense.

There may be a good deal of change going on at work in coming months, and if you can embrace this challenge then you’ll have precious little to fear. It will also be necessary to get yourself into better shape in order to handle the challenges that lie ahead.

The stars suggest plenty of social opportunities and activities will come your way this month. Keep in circulation and do not retreat into too much work. You are attracting a good deal of compliments and quite a few propositions, so why not enjoy them while you can.

The planets seem to be spreading happiness and light over your relationships. You want to be nice to everyone, though you are sometimes not clear what you are trying to say. Look after your health and energy as you need to be on top form for the year ahead.

My favourite things 3D PRINTING

Photo Kerrie Brewer

Erica says 3D printing was one of the first skills she learned and now she gets “to make some cool things”. “Anything I can draw or sketch I can print as a real object now.”

ROBOTICS “It (robotics) always seemed like something I’d never be able to do. I was not good at maths … but I realised it’s actually incredibly easy; you just have to have an interest and the right people around you. People know me because of robotics but it’s literally having a day job of playing with toys.”

WELDING HELMET

Canberra Women in Business 2019 Young Business Woman of the Year

“I love it because it is a thing that makes my life a lot easier working with metal and it comes from my family; a supportive reminder my family likes what I’m doing.”

The founder of The Creative Element, Erica Hediger was named as the Canberra Women in Business 2019 Young Business Woman of the Year. The Creative Element provides educational outreach as well as rapid prototyping and light manufacturing and, despite not having a background in robotics, engineering or design, Erica has created a successful business which recently celebrated five years of operation. She started dabbling in electronics and programming while sick and housebound for an extended period of time and found it was something she enjoyed. Erica has built combat robots and even appeared on American TV show, BattleBots, in 2016. Erica says she is constantly learning through watching YouTube channels and reading textbooks. For those interested in pursuing science and technology, she says there are plenty of avenues available. “A lot of people stop because they think it sounds too hard but if you haven’t tried, you don’t know if it’s out of your reach.” - Allison Turnbull 106

MINERALS & COMPOUNDS Erica says she goes through phases of learning about new areas of interest. While studying chemistry – powders, reagents and compounds – she realised she could make her own, such as stepped crystals. She displays these, and other scientific oddities, after being inspired by her partner’s parents’ ‘cabinet of curiosity’.

CAT Sir Neo Darkmeow is an elder gentleman Erica adopted about six months ago and is the company supervisor when she is working from home. “We are a bunch of busy people who get absorbed in work easily. It’s nice to have something that just hangs around with us.”
