New Eastern Suburbs Community Forum

many hands make light work Often, when we plan an issue of Eastern Suburbs Life, we have a theme in mind, but sometimes one just suddenly emerges as material is brought together. This edition is one of the times when the theme jumps out, and this time it is “Many Hands Make Light Work”.

From the CoVESTA property investment platform to the BNI Network Group, and the new Eastern Suburbs (Facebook) Community Forum, we have stories about structures that help people work together. In fact, the CoVESTA platform goes one step further and allows an existing community group to create a syndicate to purchase a property to help disadvantaged people get back on their feet.

Finally, there is the “Tucked Away Traders” centre-page liftout, that lets individual smaller businesses work together, so that they can be easily found. They not only share the Tucked Away website, www.tuckedaway.com.au and the Tucked Away Facebook page, but also sponsor the new Eastern Suburbs Community Forum, that allows people throughout the Eastern Suburbs to share community news free-of- charge.

If that’s not enough, we report on several local charities, including one founded by ten-yearold children, all regularly proving that by working together “Many Hands Make Light Work”. Once again ,we thank you for reading our paper and hope it raises your spirits, and leaves you feeling more informed.

PROPERTY 3

EASTERN SUBURBS

Has your life become a nightmare since your next door neighbour’s property was listed on Airbnb – and turned into party central? Or perhaps, you are a property owner whose short term letting has turned from a nice little earner, into a gaping red hole as you repair damage wrought by the "Tenants from Hell". Airbnb and other short-term letting services are proving a double-edged sword as owners, tenants, and the property industry explore new territory.

beaches are the hot spots for short-term rentals. “Inner-city suburbs such as Potts Point, Surry Hills and Redfern are also popular.”

new airbnb laws on the way by Anthony Maguire

Woollahra teacher, Peta Estens had to take her strata manager to the NSW Tribunal, after they banned her letting out her flat to short-term tenants. Her neighbours had complained about strangers in the laundry, and one took objection to a man sitting on Ms Estens’ deck and staring at her.

Earlier this year, Waverley mayor, John Wakefield said that in his municipality, which includes Bondi and other beach “hot spots,” there were more than 5000 short-term lettings.

But the fact is, that careful vetting of Airbnb tenants is required to ensure property is respected and neighbours aren’t disturbed.

“We carry out very thorough security check of prospective tenants across all platforms,” says HomeHost managing director Gabriel Sarajinsky.

Under the new rules to go through parliament in the coming weeks, homeowners won’t be able to let out their properties for more than 180 days a year if they don’t live on the premises, and strata bodies will be able to ban short-term rentals in units owners aren’t living in, if 75 per cent of neighbours agree. In addition, Airbnb and its smaller competitors will have to sign up to a code of conduct aimed at curbing noise and antisocial behaviour. That is going to be a major challenge, because the shortterm rental explosion means there are thousands of properties in the east being let out on Airbnb and similar sites.

Ms Estens, 38, won the case. And so now she is free to continue letting out her property in the five-unit block during school holidays, for a tidy $13k a year.

A lot of owners are now letting out their properties through specialist agencies, like eastern suburbs-based HomeHost, a short-term rental specialist that manages lettings through Airbnb plus other services such as HomeAway, Booking. com and Expedia.

Mr Sarajinsky said 60 per cent of HomeHost’s clients were investors. In many cases, their shortterm letting strategies will soon have to be modified to meet new regulations foreshadowed by the NSW government.

Two thirds of these were entire houses or flats. He called on the state government to make sure the new regulations had real teeth.

As well as screening applicants, HomeHost also deals with the other most challenging tasks like cleaning. “We’ve had very little in the way of problems,” says Mr Sarajinsky.

“However, there have been one or two instances where everything falls apart because someone has a party.” He says Bondi and neighbouring eastern

“At a minimum the State Government should ensure that body corporates have sufficient legislative power to decide whether to allow Airbnb in their building or not,” Councillor Wakefield said.

Bonus Tip: If you do a lot of computer

Crowning glory Your hair

work, you may find it useful to download the free f.lux software (https://justgetflux.com) which replaces the glare on your screen with a lovely warm orangey colour to simulate sunset. If you need to work late into the evening, you simply change the settings to allow the screen to remain as bright as it would be in daylight.

If you are frequently washing your hair, or out and about in the hot drying sun, or perhaps you are losing more hair than is usual for you, then be sure to try the following tip. Your hair is made of keratin, as are your nails. Both are on the extremities of your body, so from the point of view of reflexology, it makes sense that if you stimulate your nails it would also have an effect on your hair (and vice versa). Therefore, rub your fingernails together to encourage blood circulation to the hair follicles (and nail bed). 2-3 minutes or so, twice a day is plenty. In addition to this, there’s no harm in rubbing in some coconut oil into the root of your hair and leaving it overnight to replenish any oils lost. Wash as usual in the morning.

Be well & go with the flow Your liver

One of the most crucial organs in the body due to the many vital functions it performs, to name but a few, the production of bile (which helps emulsify fats), blood purification through the excretion of hormones, toxins and cholesterol, as well as the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates.

Did you know you can easily work on the muscles surrounding your eyes, as well as, the eyes themselves? The reflex zones for the eyes are found at the base of your ring and little finger (palmar side). You can also find them at the base of your 4th and little toe on your feet.

If you find yourself getting short-tempered easily, you may like to know that in Traditional Chinese medicine, one sign of an unbalanced liver is anger and irritability – something to bear in mind when you start losing it!

Stay supple Your neck, shoulders and spine– stiff and desk bound?

Whatever you’re up to, you can help ease

associated muscle soreness or stiffness by keeping your neck, shoulders and entire spine supple and loose. Reach for your thumbs and reflex from the tip to the base, along the bony protrusion near your inside wrist, or reach for the outer side of your big toes, and reflex from the tip down to the heel. It really is that easy to keep on top of muscle soreness and stiffness.

Amaze yourself Your eyes

Do you experience dry, sensitive or tired eyes?

Ignore time off and relaxation at your peril! Aaah where would we be without belly-breathing? Breathing deeply, fully from your lower belly to the very tops of your lungs, is a truly restorative and relaxing kind of breath. By working the reflex zones of your solar plexus (that bundle of nerves found just beneath your sternum), plus working the full width of your diaphragm and encouraging your lungs to extend to their fullest, out of the more common and stifling shallow breathing. Deep breathing (in and out) can have a very positive effect on reducing the levels of stress hormones, and can have a positive effect on your parasympathetic nerves – those that encourage relaxation.

6 WELLBEING If you have a consultation with Edgecliff GP Dr Lyn Tendek, your treatment regime is more likely to involve evidence-based herbs and supplements than conventional medications. Dr Tendek is skilled in the field of integrative medicine, taking a holistic approach which goes beyond simply treating symptoms to discover and treat the root causes of illnesses.

Taking the integrative medical approach with Dr Lyn Tendek

The initial consultation at her clinic, Edge Wellness, lasts an hour. She looks at lifestyle factors such as exercise, sleep, diet and nutrition as she helps patients suffering from conditions such as fatigue, stress, hormone imbalance and gut disorders.

From there, she may trial you on a low FODMAP diet. FODMAP is an acronym that stands for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols. These are nutrients found in common foods.

Dr Tendek started developing her interest in integrative medicine 25 years ago when, working as a GP in women’s health, she suffered from a severe case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). “I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy to exclude any pathology,” she said. “The gastroenterologist said there was nothing he could do for me.”

In some people, they can create significant symptoms in the gut, so Dr Tendek may recommend eliminating or drastically reducing certain things from your diet and replacing them with others for a fortnight or more.

However, Dr Tendek suspected her symptoms were stress-related. “I embarked on a journey of self-discovery which involved appropriate counselling and I studied mindfulness well before it became fashionable,” she said. Meanwhile, she did the first of many courses through the Australian College of Nutrition and Environmental Medicine. “After 12 months, I had a significant decrease in symptoms and after three years the IBS was gone.” Now she helps a lot of other people suffering from IBS, which she says is an umbrella name for a range of digestive disorders. “The first step

Dr Tendek treats a lot of ailments with herbs, vitamins and mineral supplements. If you are stressed, for instance, she may put you on a regime that includes magnesium, Vitamin B and amino acids. If you require an anti-inflammatory, she may recommend Curcumin (pictured left), one of the active ingredients of Turmeric.

Many of the patients who seek her help are women with hormonal issues. Here, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), in tandem with lifestyle changes, can often help. “I’ve had great results where women have had significant improvements,” Dr Tendek said.

NYC Reuben Sandwich at Lulu's

Origins of the Reuben Sandwich

Reuben Kulakofsky, Blackstone Hotel: Omaha, Nebraska

One origin story holds that Reuben Kulakofsky, a Jewish Lithuanian-born grocer residing in Omaha, Nebraska, was the inventor, perhaps as part of a group effort by members of Kulakofsky's weekly poker game held in the Blackstone Hotel from around 1920 through 1935. The participants, who nicknamed themselves "the committee", included the hotel's owner, Charles Schimmel. The sandwich first gained local fame when Schimmel put it on the Blackstone's lunch menu, and its fame spread when a former employee of the hotel won a national contest with the recipe.

Reuben's Delicatessen: New York City

Another account holds that the Reuben's creator was Arnold Reuben, the German-Jewish owner of the famed Reuben's Delicatessen (1908–2001) in New York City. According to an interview with Craig Claiborne, Arnold Reuben invented the "Reuben Special" around 1914. A variation of the above account is related by Bernard Sobel in his 1953 book, Broadway Heartbeat: Memoirs of a Press Agent. Sobel states that the sandwich was a creation for Marjorie Rambeau inaugurated when the famed Broadway actress visited the Reuben's Delicatessen one night when the cupboards

were particularly bare. Other versions give credit to Alfred Scheuing, a chef at Reuben's Delicatessen, and say he created the sandwich for Reuben's son, Arnold Jr., in the 1930s.

How Lulu's make a Reuben Sandwich Ingredients

Corned Beef, Sauerkraut, Russian Dressing*, Melted Swiss Cheese, Miche toast bread

Method

Cook Corned Beef in a pan of salted water with onions, celery, carrot, garlic and thyme. Bring to boil, reduce heat and cook for 8 hours, allow to cool down in water and slice to order. *The Russian Dressing is our chef's secret recipe, so you will have to come in to Lulu's and try our beautiful traditional NYC Reuben Sandwich.

A hairdresser...

who does more than cut & colour

Yolanda Austin is a Londontrained hair stylist and colour expert with a small salon tucked away in Double Bay’s Elbon Arcade. She has been there since 2013, and before that she was with a larger salon in Woollahra for 11 years. The salon, Hair by Yolanda, is a boutiquestyle, one-woman business. Most of her clients have been coming to her for years. “I have seen them marry and have children. Now they’re telling their daughters, ‘If you’re going to get your hair coloured for the first time, go to Yolanda!’” It is not just Yolanda’s cutting and colouring skills that draw clients to her salon. You see, Yolanda is more than just a hairdresser to them. She is a trusted friend. “When you’re a hairdresser you’re also a counsellor and sounding board," Yolanda says. “I try not to give advice, but sometimes it’s impossible not to. But what is said in the salon, stays in the salon!” The salon has two styling chairs plus a reclining chair for shampoos. The shampoo chair

Cold weather and low humidity levels result in dry air, which then steals moisture away from the skin every second of every day. 1. Wash in lukewarm water

Hot showers and baths always feel good in the winter, but when you can, particularly when just washing your face or hands, choose lukewarm water to avoid stripping as many oils away from the skin.

2. Moisturise immediately afterwards

Your skin not only needs more moisture, but moisture right after you wash. Applying moisture to damp skin helps seal that dampness into the skin.

3. Choose moisturiser carefully

Some over-the-counter moisturisers have petroleum-based ingredients that can actually further dry your skin in the winter months. Be sure to choose a smart formula that has natural, nourishing ingredients. Go for an oil-based rather than a water-based solution, as it’s more likely to help your skin retain moisture in the winter.

4. Protect your skin

Get used to wearing gloves and scarves to protect skin from cold winds and rain. Also, don’t forget the sunscreen. Winter sun can be just as damaging as summer sun, so apply a safe option like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to any exposed areas.

also gives you a back massage. “Because of the salon’s small size, there are never more than two clients in at the one time,” says Yolanda, who studied hairdressing at the London College of Fashion, and worked in Knightsbridge.

Superior quality hair products

Yolanda sources the best quality hair products from manufacturers such as Alfaparf Milano. She only uses products that are free of harmful chemicals and will keep your hair in good condition. ‘For example, the Alfaparf Milano shampoo is sodium, laurel and sulphate free and the colours are ammonia-free. Even though we’re using strong chemicals, we do our best to protect the hair.”

One-on-one hairdressing experience

Yolanda describes herself as a skilled all-round hairdresser, with particular skills in the colour department. She sums up her point of difference as giving the client “a one-on-one hairdressing experience.” “You’ll never be thrust over to the junior for the end of colour blow dry. You’ve got me from beginning to end.”

5. Humidify

Heating systems dry out the air, so consider installing a humidifier in your home, particularly in your bedroom, to put moisture back into the air and help prevent your skin from drying out.

6. Drink water

We tend to drink less water in the winter, because we turn to hot drinks like cocoa and tea, but don’t forget that your skin needs hydration from the inside, out. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time.

7. Moisturise overnight

Dryer areas like hands, feet, elbows, and knees have thin skin and tend to lose moisture faster than other areas on the body. Consider slathering on a deep moisturising balm.

8. Exfoliate

We often forget to help the skin slough off dead cells in the winter, particularly on our hands. Find an exfoliating mask and use it on your face and your hands, as well as gently on your lips, then follow immediately with moisture to truly see a smoother difference.

9. Hydrate from the inside out

Eating foods high in water content can help hydrate your skin from the inside out. Try watermelon, apples, oranges, kiwi, and watery veggies like celery, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and carrots. Make sure you’re getting enough vitamin C and zinc to support the healthy production of collagen and elastin.

10. Change your cleanser

Cleansers can be extremely drying to the skin. If you’re used to using options that contain glycolic or salicylic acid, rotate with a more hydrating version that contains moisturising ingredients.

THE FINANCIAL PLANNING LANDSCAPE

Your Friendly Funeral Guy Chris Cullen Recently, at a funeral, I had the privilege of hearing a son read from his father’s war time diaries. The father wrote of his experience in the Royal Australian Navy during WWII, as his ship came under attack from Japanese suicide bombers. It was a harrowing experience related in his diaries, and the preservation of those writings is an important part of our Australian history. Later, in the funeral, a representative of the RSL brought a tribute outlining the ships on which the gentleman had served throughout WWII and in peace time. Ex-service people came forward and laid poppies on the coffin. The RSL representative then led the congregation to stand as the last post and reveille were played, and as the ode was spoken. After the funeral, the family told me how pleased they were with this element of the service. Throughout his life, this man had marched in Anzac Day parades every yearwith his navy mates. However, he had never been a part of the RSL and so his family were not aware that this type of tribute could be made. They were so grateful that I had made the suggestion and organised for the RSL to honour their father for his selfless service of his country.

The Financial Services Royal Commission recently heard evidence that raised serious doubts about the independence and integrity of many financial planners. It is leading to the break-up of the umbrella financial service structure, where a bank's financial planner advises you to put your money into funds and insurance companies owned by the bank. CBA, for instance, is divesting itself of its massive wealth planning and mortgage business, hot-on-the-heels of NAB, which is separately listing its wealth division, and ANZ, which late last year sold its wealth arm to IOOF. Meanwhile, there seems to be a wave of planners moving to individual licensing, applying to ASIC for an ‘own license.’ This is seen as hugely expensive and logistically difficult for ASIC to regulate and police, although there is talk of creating a centralised data hub to detect breaches and facilitate enforcement action. However, many experts see individual licensing as a recipe for more potential woes for the "mum and dad investors" trusting their life savings with a financial planner. “There are more things that can go wrong when you are dealing with an advisor with their own license, as opposed to someone who works for a large licensee,” warns Brendan Whitehouse, Director of BRW Financial Group, a retirement planning specialist. “When you work for a licensee, you don’t handle the client’s money, whereas, if someone has their own license, there is a greater opportunity for them to channel clients’ money through a trust account and make off with it.

One of the important roles of a Funeral Director is to provide options to families that they might not have previously considered. Why not have a conversation with me today so that you can be advised of the many available ways in which you can pay tribute to the person you love.

Questions and Answers Q: I don’t know the details of my relative’s

military service, can we find out? A: The National Archives of Australia hold records relating to the service of our armed forces. You can research online at http:// www.naa.gov.au/collection/explore/defence/ service-records/

Do you have a question for the Friendly Funeral Guy?

As in other professions, there are always a few bad apples.” He says regardless of how the reforms to the industry are played out, they will polish up the slightly tarnished image of financial planners. “They will be perceived as more trustworthy in the eyes of the public.”

Choosing a financial planner

Brendan says advisers who work for large licensees “are a lot more heavily regulated than small ones.” So it can be advisable to adopt the motto ‘bigger is better’ when you are looking for a planner.

I would love to answer your questions in future editions of the Eastern Suburbs Life newspaper.

He says the best way of finding a planner can be by word-of-mouth. “Ask your friends,” he advises. “Interview four or five different planners that they’ve recommended. Ask about their typical clients so you get an idea of whether they are experienced in dealing with people who have similar issues and goals to you.”

Please email them to: chris@ianjarthurfunerals.com.au

Before you do business with a planner, look them up in ASIC’s financial advisers register. This tells you what licenses they hold and areas the advisers can provide advice in and whether they have been the subject of disciplinary action by ASIC.

LOOKING AFTER YOUR

TIMBER DECK

Timber decks, screens and pergolas are great and can add significant value to our homes. They allow us to enjoy our outdoor areas in comfort whilst getting some fresh air or enjoying the view. Timber decks, will need to be maintained regularly to keep them in good condition.

Tips for maintaining your decks or other outdoor timber • Always hose or blow off leaves or dirt when you can. • Clean every 3 months with a mild detergent such as dishwashing liquid or car wash and a soft broom or mop.

Investing in your home The experts at "A Style of Shade" have compiled some of their top tips for how to invest in your home, to increase the chances of selling it for the best price.

“While you may want to add numerous features to drive up the value of the home, you don’t want to overcapitalise. Work with your agent to understand what improvements add value to the sale price, and which simply just add cost and time. Talk to the relevant experts to get a feel for the costs you need to budget for, and be clear about what makes your home different. Homes around the eastern beaches are obviously highly sought after, so making the most of the spaces both inside and outside, the home is key to bringing vendors to your home. Maximising indoor-outdoor flow by ensuring the right balance between enjoying the beautiful scenery, as well as, providing privacy from neighbours close by needs real experts with our local area,” says Mark Treister, owner of A Style of Shade, Double Bay’s local Luxaflex Gallery dealer.

1. Stick to neutral colours

You want prospective buyers to be able to picture themselves in your home. Neutral doesn’t mean bland, it allows a back drop to paint your own personality on. Adding dramatic effects can make impact through dark neutrals and contrasts.

2. Think about energy efficiency

Buyers are looking for homes that will be efficient and easy to run – think solar, hot water or low maintenance decks instead of extensive gardens. It is possible to save up to

49%* on heating costs by installing Luxaflex® Duette® Architella® Menage Shades on your windows – creating a modern look that adds light control and privacy throughout the day and night, with the added bonus of unrivalled energy efficiency. For an added bonus try including a motorisation option like the new Luxaflex PowerView™ motorisation system, it allows you to bring your home into the future of automation systems, and stand out from t he rest.

3. Declutter your home

Add extra storage with floating shelves or shadow boxes in living areas, or important zones like the kitchen and laundry. Remove personal items to allow prospective buyers to imagine their own furniture in rooms or common areas.

4. Maximise the living space

Indoor/outdoor space is very sought after these days, so think about whether a folding arm awning or umbrella may suit your outdoor space. Maybe try the Luxaflex® Ventura Terrace awning, this is a great option for narrow yards that need a large coverage, with their unique cross-over arms, they allow for up to 4 metres of projection. During open homes, extend the awning(s) to show the liveable space that is created. It is this functionality for both summer and winter that makes vendors more comfortable that your home is the right home for Sydney’s often harsh climate. *Savings are based on the installation of fullyrecessed, reveal-mounted Luxaflex DUETTE® Architella Ménage 38mm Blockout Shades in an average home in Sydney, compared with the House Energy Rating standard of Holland Blinds from AccuRate, in that home. These calculations have been modelled by an independent third party. Savings will vary based on the window type and installation.

A clean surface will allow water to drain off and the deck to dry quicker prolonging the lifespan of the sealer. NOTE: Deck cleaners you buy at hardware and paint shops are mostly designed to clean a deck before resealing it and will strip or degrade the surface so steer clear of them unless you’re about to do a top up coat. • Top up decks with sealer whenever they start to get weathered. If you can keep your deck sealed before it starts to dry out or weather too much it will save you substantial money over the long term. • Always use good quality sealers such as Intergrain, Sikkens or Cutek for example. The cheap sealers just don’t last and the small amount saved is outweighed by all the extra time spent re-coating more often. • Mask up any small fixtures or fittings such as lights as it will save a lot of time instead of having to carefully cut in with a small brush around them.

Pick the day

A nice sunny day is best but be sure to get your sealing done before it gets too hot, or it will become harder to keep it neat as the sealer will be drying straight off the applicator.

Pick your tint carefully

The colour will be partially determined by the natural colour of your timber and there are many different tints such as: Light brown, darker brown, reddish brown, charcoals/greys and whites/limewashes. For example, lighter brown looks good if you have dark walls or darker brown works well if you have lighter colour walls. Reddish tints look great near gardens or green areas and the blacks and whites are very modern looking and will suit many styles of homes. Remember, a deck is a substantial investment and asset for your property. Keeping it in good condition will not only look good and impress friends and family, it will add value to your home. Autumn is a good time to get the work done before the cold, wet days set in. If you’re too busy to look after the deck yourself try calling an expert like Sydney Deck Sealing to help you. They have a variety of options for all decks and budgets and have the proven systems and experience to do the job right.

TRADERS Starting as an occasional article in the last edition of Eastern Suburbs Life, Tucked Away Traders has gathered a strong following with both readers and “Tucked Away” businesses. The reason is clear. In order to survive "Tucked Away" businesses have to provide great customer service and value for money, and that is exactly what buyers are looking for. In addition, they get businesses with personality, and friendly smiles from owner operators who really care.

Often the businesses support local charities, so the whole community benefits. To make it easier for people to find these businesses, Eastern Suburbs Life has created a "Tucked Away Traders" website www.tuckedaway.com.au and a social media platform, that includes Facebook, Instagram & Google+ (Facebook users are invited to “Like” the Facebook Page if they wish to support local traders).

Getting a fair price for your car

ESL: It seems you have a passion for cars, how did that start?

DB: Yes. I can give them an idea over the phone, or I can pop out to visit them and give an, obligation free, opinion.

DB: It was easy really, my Father ran the family business so I grew up in the motor vehicle wholesale trade. I enjoyed the work and my hobby of motor car rallying and, over a period of more than 40 years, made lots of friends and regular customers.

ESL: People can also list their car on sites like Gum Tree and Carsales do you have any advice for them? DB: It’s certainly an option for people, but if they don’t know the industry they run the risk of pricing their car too low, or of not making it look its best before listing it.

ESL: So you were able to mix work and pleasure?

DB: Absolutely. My hobby meant I learned a lot about cars and that made it easier for me to help my customers. I guess we were all winners.

ESL: If you see a really good car would you buy it yourself?

DB: Most certainly. I’m happy to give them a price, and the reasons for it, and also give them time to shop around to make sure they feel it’s fair. If they decide to sell to me I can settle by Cash or Direct Bank Transfer, and make the sale as trouble free as possible.

ESL: You mention Motor Vehicle Rallying. Do you have any special memories?

DB: The London to Sydney Motor Rally must be one of the highlights. We drove a 25 year old car over 30,000 kilometres in the harshest of conditions and learned a lot about ourselves and what a well engineered car can cope with. I also rallied in PNG driving for the PNG Industries Mazda importer. ESL: So you think a car’s not past it,

just because it’s 25 years old?

DB: Not at all. If a car is well engineered and has been well looked after it can have many years of useful life ahead of it. A dealer may say it has no value, but a 10 year old car with 100,000 kilometres on the clock is only middle aged. If it’s well engineered it will still run happily for another 100,000 kilometres and that’s another 10 years.

ESL: You talk about “Well

they fetch a better price when resold, particularly when resold privately and not just traded in.

DB: Certainly. In my mind “well engineered” doesn’t just mean it performs well, but that it is reliable, easy (and inexpensive) to service and that spare parts are readily available and don’t cost an arm and a leg.

ESL: Since retiring I know you’ve

engineered”. Can you expand on that a bit?

become involved in buying and selling cars. Do you have any tips for someone selling their car? DB: My biggest tip would be not to underestimate what your car is worth. It may not be worth much to a trader, but in the open market it can have a totally different value.

ESL: Are there any models that you

think particularly fit the bill?

DB: Lots of cars fit the bill, but the Toyota Corolla is a good example. There are currently over 2,800,000 Toyotas registered in Australia, so spare parts are readily available and lots of people know how to service them. This means maintaining them costs less, and that means

ESL: If someone was thinking of selling a car like the Toyota, or Mazda you mentioned above would you be happy to give them an idea of how much they could expect to get?

ESL: That sounds very fair. Is there anything you would like to add?

DB: I’ve been around a while and have always been happy to share my knowledge and answer people’s questions. Part of the fun of rallying was meeting new people and working together. Now I’m retired I like to help people get a fair price for their car. It’s a great way to stay involved, meet new people, and keep in touch with the car industry.

Benoir Paire may just be proving that point in this year’s Wimbledon open. Statistics seem to bear that out with a recent survey showing that the popularity of beards has increased since 2011, with over 40 per cent of men now sporting some kind of facial fuzz, with a full beard remaining the most popular option.

BOWLERS, BOATERS & BEANIES for the bald & bearded bloke

Cheap, versatile and adaptable, facial hair can change the shape of a man’s face and completely alter how he looks in jeans and a T-shirt or a suit. A few whiskers here and there can make a baby face look older, draw attention away from a thinning thatch and hide a multitude of chins. In short, it allows a man to be the ultimate chameleon.

MAN ABOUT TOWN 17

EASTERN SUBURBS

If you’ve been offered a job and are not quite sure if the company is right for you, Piyush Patel author of “Lead Your Tribe, Love Your Work” has a few things you can check out before saying “yes”. 1. Observe the start or end of the workday

Should you take that job?

You can tell a lot about the environment by watching employees. If your interview is in the morning, go at the start of the workday and observe employees.

“Are they running late, walking in like they don’t want to be there?” asks Patel. “Or do they come in early, talking and mingling with co-workers?” On the flip side, pay attention to the end of the workday. Do employees perform a mass exodus right at 5 p.m.? Do they look relieved to be done with work? These are signs that the culture is bad.

2. Ask about core values

Companies often have a list of core values, such as “quality first,” “teamwork,” and “collaboration.” It’s one thing to list values, but you want to learn if they live them, says Patel. “During your interview, ask what they are, and then say, ‘Can you share some stories about how people live your core values on a regular basis?'” he says. “If they can’t readily tell you stories, they’re not living them.”

3. Talk to peer groups

A company with a good culture will often

have candidates talk to the employee who previously had the role they’re being interviewed for, says Gimbel. “If they can’t show you somebody who’s grown out of the role and is still with the company in a different capacity or vertical, then they’re hiding something,” he says. “Meeting with a peer provides a perspective about upward mobility.” You can also contact peer employees on LinkedIn before an interview, adds Patel. “Say, ‘I’m thinking about applying for a job there. What do you love about your job?'” he suggests. “You’d be surprised how much they’ll share.”

4. Take a tour

If you aren’t given a tour of the office, ask for one, says Patel. “Pay attention to employees’ desks,” he says. “Do they have a picture of family members on their desk, or does it look like they keep the bare minimum? When you’re living in a temporary space, you don’t move a lot of stuff in. Desks are the same way, and they can be an indicator of how long people plan to stay.”

5. Notice smells

If you’re interview is around lunchtime, see

how many employees are working while eating their lunch. “If you work in an organization that respects you and your time, they’re going to let you have time to eat,” says Patel. “If not, how much work do you have that you can’t pause to eat?” Companies should encourage people to take a break, or sit with co-workers and people from different department to eat and talk. “It’s building a tribe versus hurry up and get your work done,” says Patel.

meaningful volunteering experiences. OBK’s belief is that through helping others one helps one’s self. Through giving, you receive. OBK volunteers include everyone from the community from all different walks of life. OBK was founded by Rabbi Doctor Dovid Slavin and Laya Slavin in February 2005. The idea to start OBK was based on an experience that the Slavins had with a woman in the community, who was extremely unwell.

The burden of providing her family with meals fell onto the community. To do this they borrowed a Kosher kitchen, and got together a group of volunteers to cook, do the food, shopping, pack and deliver the meals. The idea of the kitchen was born, to help people who are going through a difficult time, but on a BIG scale. Rabbi and Laya Slavin had a vision to transform the basement of the Yeshiva Centre in

Little Care Packs

The concept of Little Care Packs started in 2012, when Poppy would walk past a rough sleeper each week on her way to swimming lessons. Poppy started to give him small gifts sandwiches, soap, toothpaste - items collected during the family grocery shop. Poppy's empathy & giving nature evolved into Little Care Packs which she now coordinates with her friend Millie.

Millie participated in a school holiday workshop at Cicada & Co earlier this year. Millie's enthusiasm about Little Care Packs helped create the connection, leading to Cicada & Co reaching out and asking to be a collection point. In July, Poppy & Millie along with Anna & Rachel's tribe will create the care packs from donations received.

Over 4,000 Little Care Packs have been created & delivered to date. The packs are distributed through organisations like Orange Sky Laundry, Wayside Chapel, Youth of the Street and Lou’s Place.

Items collected are unused travel size toiletries, roll-on deodorants, toothbrushes, toothpaste, airline amenity kits, pocket size tissues & new socks. A Go Fund Me page has also been set up, to raise money to assist in making lightweight drawstring back packs filled with essentials for people doing it tough.

Anna & Rachel opened Cicada & Co in June 2017, creating a community hub on Bellevue Rd, Bellevue Hill. Cicada & Co regularly supports a "Giving Back" initiative, asking the broader community to contribute what they can.

They shared their passion with others and brought together a team of businesses, tradesmen and volunteers to make OBK

Woollahra Council is also behind this initiative with Woollahra's Mayor, Councillor Peter M Cavanagh generously popping into Cicada & Co to make a donation.

All children involved ask for donations from their school community & friends. Novotel Darling Harbour, Garnier Australia, Coty Inc, Pact Group, Bronte Dental Care & Centennial Smiles have been great supporters and contributors to the girls' cause providing ongoing donations.

CoVESTA, a Woollahra based property investment platform, has recently joined “Housing With a Purpose” to help purchase a five bedroom property in Grafton.

HOUSING WITH A PURPOSE

The property will be used to provide temporary housing, personal development, training and community support programs for people finding their way back into the community, after suffering from mental health or financial setbacks.

Dr Judy Banko, Housing With a Purpose, CEO

and at the same time provide help to people in need.

The house has been leased for over 20 years by a Government supported community group that has already helped over 300 people get their life back into productive and engaged community citizenship.

It’s a win/win for everyone, giving people a chance to get a return on property investment (an estimated 5.1% in the case of the Grafton property) and do Social Good at the same time.

This facility is now at risk of being lost to the community, because the owner wishes to sell and there is no guarantee the new owner will wish to continue to lease out the property.

The CoVESTA platform divides the cost of a property into 100 Blocks, allowing investors to buy as little as 1% of a property at a time (think $10,000 on a $1m property). It’s a way to get a foot in the door if you are a buyer, or an annual income (and possible capital gains) as an investor. A deposit can be put on a property for just 1% of the Block price (i.e. just $38 In the case of the Grafton property)

The good news is that Dr Judy Banko, CEO of www.housingwithapurpose.org has been able to work with CoVESTA to create a syndicate to purchase the property so that it can continue to be used as a community facility. As Judy Banko says, “It’s so important to have specialised accommodation remain in the community that helps people at risk, whether it be from mental health, readjusting into society after prison or immigrants trying to find their way,”

People who are interested in helping this project, or getting into the property market in an affordable way, are invited to visit: www.CoVESTA.com.au

CODE CAMP The Napranum PaL Group (NPG) is an under the radar “not for profit” entity which owns and manages the Parents and Learning (PaL) program. These winter school holidays, 2,000 primary school aged kids in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs will be choosing to spend the holidays creating their own apps. Code Camp will be running their 3-day camps in 10 schools in the eastern suburbs including; Randwick Public School, Maroubra Bay Public School, Waverley College, Kensington Public School, Ascham, SCEGGS Darlinghurst, St Andrews, International Grammar School, Fort St Public School & St Aloysius College. Kids as young as five, will learn how to code and build their very own computer game and apps. “The interest in kids wanting to learn how to code keeps growing, and I’m constantly being blown away with how creative their apps are”. Code Camp COO and mum of three, Hayley Markham.

Nine-year-old Sarah Yep, who after attending Code Camp developed a beach safety app, helping people to learn about CPR, how to identify a rip and sun safety, which sparked the interest of Surf Life Saving Australia. Rose Bay Public School Year Four student, Taylah Bates, loves coding and when hearing that three out of five computer engineers are boys, she developed an app to encourage girls to code while also sending anti-bullying messages.

PaL was developed in 2001, in response to Indigenous parent requests to ‘help their kids get ready for school’. After investigating possible early childhood programs, the women of Napranum felt the best fit for Indigenous families and for their community would be achieved by developing their own program. PaL is a home-based parent engagement program. It aims to support parents and indeed entire families to participate in their young children’s early learning, by providing resources and training delivered to them. PaL provides practical and structured support to parents in their own home environment, and to support their children’s further success in higher education – which is consistently proven to work with pre-school children on this programme going on to succeed in school life and University. PaL is also a flexible program constantly adjusting to the needs of the communities in which it operates. Essential to the success of

PaL programs are local Indigenous people, as they have the knowledge and understanding of community life, and the challenges families face bringing up children in an ever-changing world. Their involvement is crucial to successfully encouraging parents to actively engage in their children’s early learning. Community ownership is a key element to the success of the program. The future of the PaL program and the sustainability of NPG as a not for profit organisation relies greatly on the generosity of supporters and partners. Financial support from corporate, philanthropic and federal government bodies is crucial to support the PaL program to grow and expand its reach to families and children across Australia.

Woollahra declares war on rose bay plastic bags

A weekly clean-up of plastic bags littering the seafront at Rose Bay is to be funded by Woollahra Council as part of a package of new community grants. The Community and Cultural and Environmental grants, totalling $107,000, have just been announced by the council and 43 community groups will benefit. Mayor Peter M Cavanagh said weekly beach clean-up activities in Rose Bay aimed to increase awareness of plastic pollution problems. Other programs receiving grant money include the Friendship Walk, an annual family fun day supporting young people living with disability, and A Unique Hug, a where members of the community come together to knit items for the vulnerable or and/or socially isolated.

Kingsford and Kensington population explosion

Waverley Council loosens up parking restrictions

Good news for anyone who has ever parked in Bondi or Waverley and returned to the car to find a nice little present from a parking officer. As of July 1, all parking meters in Bondi Junction get turned off after 6pm and in Bondi after 7pm. And there will be a free beach parking permit for residents. But wait, there’s more! Starting on August 1, you will be able to park 15 minutes in meter zones and shopping centre dropoff zones for free. And council is doing away with fees for Residential Parking Permits. The changes follow a phone and online survey of Waverley residents in April.

“It is imperative that we recognise and support those that cater to the needs of the community,” the Mayor said.

Mayor Lindsay Shurey

The population of Kingsford and Kensington will more than quadruple in the next 15 years, according to Randwick Council projections.

Figures tabled at a recent council meeting show the number of residents soaring from 1272 currently to 5353 by 2031. The influx of new residents will come in tandem with a huge increase in the number of dwellings, from 591 to 2446. Tony Lehmann, Randwick Council’s Manager, Integrated Transport, tabled the figures during a discussion on construction of the Todman Avenue/Lenthall St Bicycle Corridor. It’s hoped the cycleway will ease the transport congestion expected with the population increase, providing bicycle access to local hubs like UNSW and the Randwick hospital precinct. Could the two wheels transport solution indicate the council is less than confident the troubled light rail will not do much to meet the area’s looming transport challenges?

“We believe their innovative ideas, projects and events will enhance the Woollahra Municipality by supporting local businesses, enhancing its natural environment increasing local community engagement and connectedness.”
