everal months ago I took my son off to the doctor to have his four-year-old injections. It wasn’t pleasant. As the nurses prepared the syringes and instructed me to sit down with the child in my lap, my little man cottoned on to what was about to happen, promptly broke free of my grasp and ran off – I chased him around the nurse’s station twice before I finally caught him and quickly sat down. Two nurses swiftly came forward with a needle each, jabbed his tender little arms and applied Band-Aids before he could wriggle free again. He jumped off my lap, stared at me incredulously and screamed – loudly, three times – tears of betrayal spilling down his pink cheeks. All was forgotten, however, when he was presented with a bag of lollies and a balloon, and I slunk away, apologising, while he chatted happily about how brave he had just been. But it got me thinking about what us parents put our children – and ourselves – through in an effort to be ‘responsible.’ It was with a lot of interest, then, that I read Nathan Evans’ story on immunisation, which appears on page 22, about a group of parents who believe immunisation is unnecessary and potentially dangerous. The medical profession has its say in the story too. It’s a fascinating issue that all parents should read up on. Any business owner on the Coast will want to read our cover story on page 6 – Julie Schomberg takes a look at how our region’s business sector is faring. Down at Kawana business will be booming, thanks to the health hub – check out page 38 for the latest on that. And as always MWP has health and motoring, socials and news, the best of property and much more.

Our aim is to ensure an inclusive and cohesive regional vision is championed, particularly at local, state and federal government levels, to attract diverse business to the region Sunshine Coast Business Council

ALL IN SAME PREVIEW If the Sunshine Coast is to grab every opportunity to create jobs, increase business, attract more tourists and build infrastructure, all sectors need to pull together. Already there are strong signs this is happening. WORDS Julie Schomberg

“T

he Sunshine Coast is a beautiful region and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t become a richer region,” says Sandy Zubrinich, a senior strategic business consultant who worked across the US and Europe before moving to the Coast from Sydney four years ago. She reflects the growing expectations of local business people, industry and government leaders who can see the region’s potential for prosperity over the next two decades. “By 2031, I believe we should be in the top three performing regions in Queensland and the top five nationally,” she says, “but first we need to intervene, plan and make the most of our opportunities.” Zubrinich chairs the Sunshine Coast Business Council, an advocacy group representing the region’s geographic areas and industry sectors, from property to education. It started [ 6 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ AP RIL 13, 2012

in 2004 and refocused on economic development in 2010, post-global financial crisis. Zubrinich has noticed a changing attitude on the Coast in the past 18 months, with “a lot more collaboration and a lot less prickliness” between government levels and chambers of commerce. “The new State Government and upcoming council elections are important opportunities for our region to build a strong, enduring economic base rather than adopt reactive policies,” she says. Jo Hall, of Kawana Waters Chamber of Commerce, agrees that while busy Easter school holidays are helping to boost business confidence, the outcomes of both elections are vital for the Coast’s future economic

BOAT direction. “There is no question that we need changes to the landscape of business support and investment from both [levels] of government,” she says. Hall is a specialist financial adviser and president of a chamber in an area about to get a massive injection of investment as a new private and public hospital precinct is built along with commercial, educational and nearby residential developments. (See property cover story on page 38.) She reported an “air of excitement” at a recent meeting of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital community reference group and project team. The successful consortium to partner construction of the $2 billion public hospital will be chosen later this year from three bids of “exceptional” quality. “It’s great to see action on the site of the private hospital and I think many locals are starting to become aware of the sheer size and volume of the combined [project],” Hall says. “It is unprecedented on the Coast and it’s not just the health-care aspects. The flow-on effect will mean so many more workers in the area and demands for housing, shopping, entertainment and schools will increase dramatically.” Zubrinich urges business – small, medium and big – to embrace change, adding that complacency is the Coast’s biggest threat in cyclical economic conditions. “The Coast is lagging in critical areas and our strengths of retail, tourism and construction have been kicked around a bit,” she says. “The good news is state and local governments and industry are starting to get strong alignment on what the issues are and we are lucky to have big and small infrastructure projects about to happen.” As Australia shifts towards a service industry country, she says the Coast needs a unified leadership to protect its industries and diversify its economic base into areas such as health, education and other valueadded industries. Leaders agree increasing the number and type of jobs is a top priority. In its recent Economic Directions MY W EEKLYPREVIE W. CO M . AU

7.indd 1

2012-2031 report, the business council found the Coast has the highest proportion of part-time workers in Queensland, slowing migration and an ageing demographic, among other issues. It estimates the region needs a four per cent rise in job participation to deliver a sustainable workforce of 250,000 people by 2031, when the population is predicted to be half a million people (compared with 340,000 now). So how can business expand to employ future generations of locals, in turn buoying our bottom line? The business council says it’s about tapping into public and private investment. ‘Transformative’ infrastructure projects will involve job creation in sectors such as health, community services, tourism, communications, government services and education, in addition to the construction, housing and commerce spin-offs. “Our focus is on how we will capture every possible job we can for the Coast,” says Zubrinich. “We must think about doing business differently.” An example is several small firms collaborating to take on joint work in their industry. ‘Transformative’ projects identified are: • the Kawana Health Hub in 2016 (based around new private and public hospitals to be built), • the Sunshine Coast Airport Precinct in 2020 (master plan involves a yet-to-be-funded new runway), • the Sippy Downs Technology Precinct in 2018 (based around the expanding university, new town centre and hoped-for relocated government department), • the Maroochydore principal activity centre in 2015 (land deal sealed to allow redevelopment of CBD). The business council also lists longer-term projects such as the planned Caloundra South mixed-use development housing 50,000 people within a couple of decades, an industrial precinct, five-star hotels, a national sports franchise and transport infrastructure. Its action plan for the next six months focuses on reviewing the performances of the first 100 days of the new state and local governments and hosting jobs forums. “We want to drill down and identify the ripple effects for employment from developments such as the hospital,” Zubrinich says. Businesses such as Sunshine Plaza at Maroochydore welcome the changing environment. The Coast’s biggest shopping centre has a development application before Sunshine Coast Council to add about 35,000 square metres of floor space to accommodate the region’s first David Jones department store, an expanded Myer, additional “mini-majors” and specialty retailers. (See local news on page 14.) Centre manager Michael Manwaring says the $350 million project “is in direct response to the community seeking a greater range of retail and services in Maroochydore and will result in significant job creation for the retail and construction industries as well as flow-on jobs in manufacturing, transport and delivery, and others”. He says expansion will secure the Plaza’s long-term viability and keep spending on the Coast. “The retail industry is evolving more rapidly than ever, however the future remains positive for retailers and businesses that adapt accordingly.”

APPETITE TO GROW The Commonwealth Bank Future Business Index is a biannual analysis of the views of financial decision-makers in companies with a turnover from $10 million to $100 million. The latest index found that mid-market companies are increasingly looking to expand their operations despite uncertain economic conditions, with capital expenditure and staffing levels both set to rise. More than two-thirds of businesses said they had implemented initiatives to enhance efficiency and/or productivity in the past six months. “Appetite for investment is on the way up,” says spokesperson Symon Brewis-Weston. A TIME TO SOW Quiet times are the right times to “sow your crop”, according to the owners of highly successful Coast building products company Rockcote. “Economic conditions are cyclical and you can’t bear fruit all the time,” says Bob Cameron, who with wife Chris has turned their original Yandina-based headquarters into a multimillion-dollar business employing more than 60 people. “Lay the ground work then reap the benefits later. Businesses now have a huge opportunity to grow their market share. As we meet environmental challenges and a shift in market power from America to Asia, not just China, we must find new a place in the world and new ways.” The self-dubbed “corporate hippies” love living in paradise here on the Coast while running their national company specialising in sustainable paint, render and coating systems. “We can make an advantage out of what others see as the problem of meeting new energy-efficiency criteria. Bunnings wants to expand our range and we’re distributing as far as Melbourne,” Cameron says. M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW \ A PRIL 1 3 , 2 0 1 2 [ 7 ]

SOME DAY MY SINK WILL COME

Dot Drane is a journalist, long-time Sunshine Coast local and regular MWP contributor.

T

he most famous of many memorable scenes in British TV show Fawlty Towers coined the phrase “don’t mention the war”, but in my part of the world, it’s “don’t mention the kitchen”. To do so is at the risk of being subjected to a long rant. Kitchen companies, like doctors, it seems, are not obliged to offer the same level of customer service demanded of other industries. So rather than mention the kitchen predicament, let’s look at it this way. I go down to the coffee shop, order and pay for a coffee and take a seat. After

[ 8 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ AP RIL 13, 2012

10 minutes, when the coffee hasn’t arrived, I go back to the counter. I am informed that the coffee supplier wasn’t able to get the beans roasted in time but happily they have just arrived at this moment and it’s on its way. After another 10 minutes, when the coffee still hasn’t arrived, I again return to the counter. The barista is most apologetic (but not sorry enough to have taken the time to come and tell me of the problem). Alas, there have been a few unexpected complications in the supply chain and because the roasted beans were late, it meant the barista had been forced to go on with another order that he had already started. This one was a big order and therefore it would be necessary to finish it up before attention could be returned to mine. However, he confidently assures me, I will have my coffee in five minutes.

After another 10 minutes, I go back again. The situation is regrettable but the table I have chosen to sit at is not in a good position and I will need to move to another seat at my own expense. I do this but after another five minutes, still no coffee. I’m told the waitress has been caught up at another table but as soon as she gets back, my coffee will be ready. Finally, after another 15 minutes the coffee arrives. It is a good brew and my anger and frustration is eventually forgotten. Okay, so a kitchen is a tad more involved than a coffee but the principle is the same. In the interests of customer service, why not just say, “It’s very busy at the moment and your coffee won’t be ready for an hour.” That I could cope with. It’s all about expectation management. Ah, if only kitchen companies (and doctors) had to provide the same level of client service expected of the hospitality industry.

Plaza expansion $36 million annual boost to Coast Lend Lease says the planned Sunshine Plaza expansion will contribute more than $36 million to the Coast’s economy each year. It comes as the Sunshine Coast Business Council hailed the expansion plans as a coup for business confidence and jobs. Plans are before the council and state authorities for an additional 35,000 square metres of retail space, including the Coast’s first David Jones store in a $350 million expansion. “The development will result in significant job creation for the retail and construction industries as well as flow-on jobs in manufacturing, transport and delivery and others,” says Lend Lease head of retail development Gary Horwitz. “As a result of the redevelopment, net additional retail jobs are estimated at about 1200 people – representing almost $36 million annually in wages for the local economy,” he says. “In addition, based on ABS input/output multipliers, over 1000 subsequent positions will be created in the local economy as a result of the on-going operation of Sunshine Plaza.

“This brings the total increase in employment from the expanded centre to over 2200.” Horwitz says despite its status as the primary shopping centre on the Sunshine Coast, 35 per cent of Sunshine Plaza shoppers frequently shop outside the region, with 29 per cent visiting Westfield Chermside, Brisbane CBD’s Myer and David Jones, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre and Westfield North Lakes each month. “Research conducted on behalf of Lend Lease estimates that 22 per cent, or $972.3 million, of retail spending is currently escaping from the Sunshine Plaza total trade area. The proposed development would retain a proportion of this spending on the Coast,” Horwitz says. Business Council chair Sandy Zubrinich says projects such as the Sunshine Plaza expansion create jobs in all areas including retail, design, investment, construction and operational phases. “The expansion of Sunshine Plaza is a project on the table right now and approval by the incoming council without further delay would be a big step in the right direction,” she says.

The council is urging residents to take steps to help reduce mosquito breeding following recent wet weather. Residential properties have been shown to be significant mosquito breeding sites, particularly during summer. The council urges residents to take a range of steps to reduce breeding sites around homes. They include checking places where water can accumulate, emptying pot plant saucers, keeping fish ponds stocked with fish, chlorinating swimming pools, capping cavity brick walls and drilling holes in tyres used as swings.

Sunshine Coast Destination Ltd (SCDL) will attend the International Association of Golf Tour Operators Asia Golf Tourism Convention in Kuala Lumpur from April 22 to 25. IAGTO will assemble 150 golf tour operators from key markets including Japan, Korea, China, South East Asia, Canada and Europe. SCDL will conduct one-on-one appointments and meet and network with operators qualified to sell and promote golf destinations including Queensland and the Sunshine Coast. “Asia certainly provides a huge opportunity for the Sunshine Coast, given the growth that Australia and Queensland are realising from this market,” says Steve Cooper, CEO of SCDL.

Milestone for university University of the Sunshine Coast has celebrated its 10,000th graduate. Some 1500 people turned out to congratulate this year’s graduates at a ceremony last week. Among the graduates were the university’s first civil engineering graduates. Top of the class was Gina Leach, of Coolum Beach, who graduated with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering – Class 1, and received a faculty medal for high academic achievement. Graduating with Bachelors of Civil Engineering – Class 2 were Adam Brittain, Leo Copelin, Matt Noonan, Tony Ravell, Sean Thrussell and Anthony Wright. The ceremony also included the university’s first group of occupational therapy graduates.

Casino not on cards It reported a casino was part of Palmer’s plans to build a $1.5 billion tourism and leisure empire. But he says he has no such plans. A trademark for the name Coolum Casino and the domain name www.coolumcasino.com.au were registered to stop other tourism operators from doing it in the future. “I have not discussed establishing a casino at the resort with any authorities or the Queensland Government,” Palmer said in a statement. “I do not believe a casino would be the answer to boosting tourism on the Sunshine Coast. A much broader strategy is needed. “A casino could also have a detrimental social impact on the Sunshine Coast.” Source: AAP

Coolum The state’s richest man says he does not want to build a casino on the Sunshine Coast, he just trademarked the name. Clive Palmer paid Hyatt Hotels an undisclosed sum to remove it as manager of his Coolum resort. He registered the resort’s name – Coolum Resort and Spa – and took a trademark on the name Coolum Casino on March 23, The Sunday Mail newspaper says.

Dicky Beach one of our best views Caloundra’s Dicky Beach has been recognised for its beautiful outlook in a poll – The 100 Best Views in Australia. The list is published in the April-May edition of Australian Traveller magazine. “The Sunshine Coast region has some spectacular views,” says Steve Cooper, Sunshine Coast Destination Ltd CEO. “It is very exciting to have Dicky Beach listed

nationally as a favourite. The judged image inspires not only visitors to Dicky Beach and the Caloundra region but also puts the Sunshine Coast on the map as a natural and desirable destination to visit.” The winning nomination and image of Dicky Beach was provided by photographer Hartmut Toepler. In 1893 the SS Dicky was forced ashore during heavy seas and its iron skeleton remains on the beach.

The future of Queensland arts events hangs in the balance after Premier Campbell Newman made clear it’s a worthy target for cutbacks. The state’s first conservative government in almost 20 years is under fire for axing the Premier’s Literary Awards within two weeks of being elected. Newman says the step is consistent with the cost-cutting agenda Queenslanders overwhelmingly voted for. Former premier Peter Beattie, who began the awards in 1999 to bring Queensland into line with other states, said it was not a forward-looking decision. Source: AAP

Defective sperm from older fathers may trigger ‘new’ genetic mutations linked to autism, a study has shown. Researchers found that ‘de novo’, or newly created, mutations played an important role in autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs). These defects were “overwhelmingly paternal” in origin, say the scientists. Fathers were four times more likely to generate the mutations than mothers. The gene defects were also “positively correlated” with paternal age. The findings added to previous research showing that older fathers are slightly more at risk of having an autistic child. Scientists analysed the DNA of 677 individuals from 209 families with a single child with autism, and 50 unaffected Source: PA brothers and sisters.

Convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby could learn whether she has been granted clemency before the end of the year, but authorities say she is likely to face at least another two years in prison if given early release. The 34-year-old’s bid for freedom has received a boost with a crucial report from Indonesia’s Justice and Human Rights Ministry recommending that she be granted clemency on humanitarian grounds. The clemency application, lodged about two years ago, must still be approved by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

Detectives found white powdery substances and a spoon with white residue in the hotel room where singer Whitney Houston died, according to the final autopsy report. Houston had cocaine throughout her system when she died, the report says, and a “spoon with a white crystal-like substance in it” was found. The report does not specifically identify the substances as cocaine, although the drug was found in toxicology tests in Houston’s heart and extremities. Police say the investigation is still open and they cannot comment on the findings.

Key plotter for trial

French scholarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mystery death: no sign of foul play

AAP

No obvious signs of foul play have been found in the death of a prominent French scholar found in bed at a New York hotel, but his laptop and mobile phone were found on a ledge several floors below, police say. Detectives found no evidence that anyone had broken into the seventh-floor room of Richard Descoings or any clear signs of trauma to his body. Empty alcohol bottles and prescription medication were found in the room. Police said a laptop computer and a mobile phone believed to belong to Descoings were found on a third-floor ledge below his room at the Michelangelo Hotel, but it was unclear how they got there. Descoings, 53, was director of one of Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top colleges and a pioneer in opening the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schools to the underprivileged. Source: AP

Judges find Google ads were deceptive Internet search engine Google has been found guilty of posting misleading and deceptive ads, with a court upholding an appeal by the competition watchdog. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission lost a Federal Court case against Google in September which claimed Google was engaged in conduct likely to mislead or deceive the public. The ACCC initially claimed the links to 11 ads were misleading because they included a headline consisting of a trading name, a

product name or a website address of the advertiserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competitor but which also served as a link to the advertiserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. It appealed in four of the 11 cases. In the Federal Court in Sydney on Tuesday, Justice Peter Jacobson overturned the original decision and granted the appeal. He and Chief Justice Patrick Keane and Justice Bruce Lander said the primary judge â&#x20AC;&#x153;erred in failing to conclude that Google engaged in misleading and deceptive conduct in four casesâ&#x20AC;?.

THE ARGUMENTS FOR AND AGAINST

IMMUNISATION PREVIEW With the government embarking on a plan to have 90 per cent of Australian children immunised, some parents, with the support of the Australian Vaccination Network based in NSW, are resisting the pressure. WORDS Nathan Evans

M

att is like any other kid – he’s active, plays sport and in his seven years has enjoyed good health, says mum Julia. But unlike most kids, Matt is not vaccinated. It was a decision Julia and her husband made before their son was born, and one the Buddina couple didn’t make lightly. “It was a decision I spent lots of time researching the pros and cons about,” says Julia. She says the move was part of a holistic approach to protect him from chemicals and food additives. “His body was always able to cope. The compromised bodies are the ones that are not able to cope, so I wasn’t too concerned if he did get some of the illnesses, I believe in some ways they are almost a rite of passage,” she says. “A lot of the diseases are now a-typical, meaning they are different strands than the vaccines are for … they are mutating.” The Australian Vaccination Network (AVN) – an antiimmunisation group based in NSW – supports parents who choose not to vaccinate, in the face of pressure. “We get lots of complaints from parents who say they have been abused, yelled at and harassed by people in front of their kids, and even told they want their kids to die because they have not vaccinated them,” says spokesperson Meryl Dorey. The AVN won a court battle with the NSW Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) last month after the HCCC issued a public warning about the AVN following an investigation into claims the AVN was selective with information it used in its arguments against immunisation. “We said from the start it was not a valid complaint

under the Act and nor did they have the jurisdiction because it was not valid,” says Dorey. “Three years later we were proven right, but at huge cost to the taxpayers of NSW, our organisation and myself personally.” She will speak at Maroochydore on Monday night, spreading the AVN’s message. It wants the government to fund vaccine testing, rather than drug companies. Dorey says testing is not stringent enough, and fears vaccines are often administered without regard for children’s medical histories. “The particular bacteria used in vaccines is not the same bacteria that is causing more than 84 per cent of whooping cough cases – we have one strain of bacteria in the vaccine and another one circulating in the community,” she says. “Most of our information is sourced from mainstream peer-reviewed medical journals where doctors and the government should be getting it from.” Australian Medical Association Queensland president Dr Richard Kidd says governments impose strict regulations on testing, while risks associated with not vaccinating children outweigh the risks of a reaction to a vaccine. “All these things we have vaccines for – whooping cough, diphtheria, measles, mumps and rubella – in previous generations, used to kill many children, and those who survived were left with all sorts of horrible disabilities,” he says. “I looked after a girl who got measles when she was six or seven and she was left with brain damage and she went from being a really bright girl who was a ballerina, to someone who could communicate only by screaming. She had no quality of life,” Kidd says. “Before any drug comes to be used clinically it must be

proven to be safe. Once we begin using the vaccine any time an adverse reaction happens the doctor or practice must report that to the government so the government builds a lot of individual information. “The Australian Government is, with new medicines, also demanding those companies do testing in Australian environments with Australian doctors.” Immunisation, says University of the Sunshine Coast Associate Professor Dr Shelley

We recommend any parent go to the doctor and get information from there, come to the AVN and get our information, read everything they can

Walton, mimics our natural immune response to build up protective antibodies. “The body sees a component of the bacteria and is able to mount an immune response and make antibodies to that bacteria. It builds up a certain level of those antibodies so that if the body is exposed environmentally to that pathogen the body already has some antibodies there to mount a rapid response to that live infestation and stop it. “Where there has never been an exposure the body takes two to three weeks to make that antibody and you can become very ill before the body can start dealing with it.” Kidd says herd immunity – the combined immunity of the public – is critical to avoiding outbreaks and epidemics. From July 1 parents who refuse to fully immunise their children will be stripped of family tax benefits – up to $2100 per child in benefits. Families are already required to immunise their children before they can receive the Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. The changes have not silenced the AVN, which advises parents how to maintain government entitlements without vaccinating their children. “You do not have to take any vaccinations in order to receive government entitlements,” says Dorey. “You need to register as a conscientious objector.”

Julia believes her son’s good health is at least partly because he has not been subjected to vaccines. “My son has never had antibiotics; he’s never had to be seen by a doctor for anything,” she says. “I think the fear factor overrides people’s want to look further, they are scared to buck the system. If they had the time to look into the issue further, it would be obvious what the right thing to do is.” An Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing spokesperson says the government wants 90 per cent immunisation coverage. “Some people are vocal opponents of immunisation but their theories frequently have no sound scientific basis,” he says. Both Dorey and Kidd agree that parents should do their research if they are unsure about vaccination. “I strongly encourage anyone who has any questions about vaccination to talk to their family doctor,” Kidd says. Dorey adds, “We recommend any parent go to the doctor and get information from there, come to the AVN and get our information, read everything they can and make a list of questions and ask those of the doctors and do not make any decisions until they are satisfied.” Meryl Dorey will speak at the Healthy Decisions seminar, April 18.

In particular the event gives great confidence to Sunshine Coast Destination Limited and council about the investment in that event. “Most pleasing was the four million viewers achieved through media coverage around the world, so it certainly contributes massively from a promotional point of view, and within the growing Asian market.” Cooper says a tourism symposium planned for May has also been confirmed with the resort.

The golf resort is no longer under Hyatt management. “We held a very successful Australian PGA Championship presented by Coca-Cola on the Sunshine Coast in 2011 when Clive Palmer was the owner of the resort,” says Anthony Wright, general manager commercial and marketing for the PGA of Australia. “This year we are all looking forward to building on this success to ensure the tournament at Coolum Golf and Spa is again

CHANGES TO HELP BUSINESS

unshine Coast Council has made changes to planning conditions in a move it says will streamline development approvals. Economic development portfolio councillor Lew Brennan has welcomed the move as step towards easing the pressures on local businesses. Director of development services, Julie Edwards, says the review of development application conditions has resulted in the council rationalising the number of conditions applied, while making the obligations contained within the conditions easier to understand. “Conditions are placed on approvals to protect the interests of the community and the environment, both during construction and for the life of the development,” Edwards says. “Planning conditions take into account a range of issues such as environmental impacts, noise levels, traffic and infrastructure.” Edwards says the new conditions were still firm on important policy requirements contained in the planning scheme. “The reduced number of conditions and simplified language will make it easier for recipients of planning approvals to get on with the job,” she says. Brennan describes the changes as a “great step forward”. He says the council needs to be comparable to other like councils. “I understand the pressures on people trying to make a living and get a business up and running in

DIVERSIFY TO REDUCE RISK

Mark Davidson is from Ord Minnett in Buderim

O

rds view on the current state of world financial markets is that a shortterm pullback in Australian equities looks increasingly likely given earnings downgrades and other factors. At the moment, US corporate profits are at record highs and the VIX (a measure of perceived risk) is well below its historical average. Upcoming US GDP numbers are likely to be weaker than the strong December quarter result and macro bell-weather stocks such as FedEx peaked almost two months ago. All of this suggests that one should expect some short-term weakness in US equities.

As a result, after the recent rally, investors need to revisit portfolios and remove excessive concentrations of macro risk such as big overweights in oil stocks. We also believe that banks are now fairly valued, with increasing expectations of an interest rate cut accounting for the recent moderate rally.

PROTECT YOUR NECK It’s not an area of the body that most of us consider working out, but a strong neck is vital for the health of the entire body.

M

ost athle athletes know they have to work major muscle g groups like their biceps, quads and glutes. B But even elite athletes may neglect one of the most important muscle groups – those in the neck. The neck can be the weakest link in anyone’s physical conditio condition. But during physical activity the neck supports alm almost seven kilos – the average weight of the human hea head – and balances this weight as the arms, shoulders aand back make sudden and powerful athletic moves. It’s important to build strength in this body part, which will help p protect your upper back muscles and spinal cord agains against impact. There are more than 15 muscles in the neck area. The most noticeable of these is the multisyllabic sternocleidomastoids – those tw two front side muscles that stand out when you your neck or jaw is tensed. You can easily strengthen these, as well as all the othe other muscles in the neck, with your own two hands. ev As with every other muscle-resistance workout, d tto warm up the muscles first. A neck you need

warm-up is easy – simply turn the head from side to side, then flex it in a full range of motion. Let your head relax and lean back, then to each side, then forward. Finally, move your head in an upright circle in both directions. Here is an exercise that will help. Bracing your elbows on a solid surface like a desk or table, put your head in your hands and push down. You’ll feel this in the back of your neck. Next, interlace your fingers at the back of your neck and pull your hands forward while pushing your head back against your hands. Breathe deeply with each rep. The neck should not be worked out every day; twice a week is sufficient to build both strength and bulk in this important area. Give those small muscles enough time to fully recover from every workout. They will also be stretched as they are worked, thus becoming more flexible. Once your neck has become strong and flexible, it won’t matter whether you take a hit on the field or in a fall from your bike; your ‘weakest link’ will help protect you from injury. Source: AAP

HEALTH FLICK

ho knew movie night had so many health benefits? Whether you buy a ticket or rent to watch on the couch, just make sure the movie is a tearjerker and the snacks include popcorn. That combo should enhance emotional wellbeing, help reduce weight and boost antioxidant levels. Researchers at Ohio State University in the US report online in the journal Communication Research that we enjoy watching films like Titanic or Atonement because it prompts us think about our own close relationships, which makes us happy. The study, led by Silvia Knobloch-Westerwick, was based on responses from 361 university students who had viewed a shortened version of the 2007 film Atonement, which involves two ill-fated lovers separated by war. Those who felt they had experienced a greater increase in sadness while viewing the movie

were more likely to write about real people with whom they had close relationships, Knobloch-Westerwick said, which in turn increased their happiness. By contrast, students whose thoughts were more selfcentred, and who compared their own lives with those of the film characters, rather than thinking about their loved ones, did not experience increased happiness. When it comes to diving into the popcorn, scientists at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania reported the popped kernels contain higher levels of antioxidant substances called polyphenols than fruits and vegies. However how the popcorn is cooked makes all the difference in whether it is a healthy snack. Air popping is best. Cooking it the way cinemas do – in lots of fat and salt – gives it more than twice the calories and loads of fat and sodium, although the antioxidant properties remain. Source: AAP

prefer and still follow what’s said. Soft sounds are heard clearly. You’ll hear the whisper of a child’s voice. And the sound of footsteps from a distance. Loud noises are decreased. So your hearing sounds as natural as possible. People will find it easier to talk to you. You’ll understand what they say. And you’ll respond correctly. Attending large gatherings will be enjoyable again. You’ll no longer be distracted by low level background noises. And you’ll have more energy to understand, as listening will require less effort. In summary, the technology helps you stay connected to the world around you. This patented technology is available at Acoustic Hearing Clinics. Acoustic Hearing Clinics was established on the coast in 1997. All clinics are family owned and operate with traditional values. Their staff believe in treating you well. They also believe that getting to know you is the best way to respond to your hearing needs. People who have switched from large, multinational or chain clinics say they now get

treated personally. They also say they were offered a wider choice of hearing devices and got better results. Hearing decreases naturally over time. So any hearing difficulties you have will worsen. If you feel you miss a lot of sounds, either with or without hearing devices, take action. Research shows highest benefit with early hearing assistance. Everyone is invited to attend. This includes the general public, DVA card holders and pensioners. Call now to book your free appointment. See how you can benefit from this hearing breakthrough.

PRESIDENTIAL VISIT

INDEPENDENCE DAY

US first Lady Michelle Obama says Google is opening the doors to the White House on the internet by letting users pay virtual visits to all the public rooms. The president’s home is part of a Google Art Project that lets online visitors step into museums, galleries and other famous spaces and look around as though they were there. “The White House isn’t simply a home to first families or a meeting space for world leaders, it’s also known as ‘the People’s House,’ a place that should be open to everyone,” Michelle Obama said in a video message. Google used Street View cameras in rooms to capture images in 360 degrees. The Obamas have been known to drop in on groups touring the White House, which has logged about 2.5 million visitors during the past three years. Source: AFP

There’s never a lack of new computer games, but with so many of them coming in the form of sequels it’s no wonder some fans are thirsting for new ideas. Enter indie games. The good news is that they’re cheap and usually inventive, as they are produced without the support of a publisher. But they can be hard to find. “Big publishers are going to always focus more on blockbusters than new ideas, even though a lot of players want innovative games,” says Joerg Mueller-Lietzkow, from the University of Paderborn in Germany. The variety is great among indie games. Minecraft, developed by Mojang, is one of the most successful indies of recent years. It’s a pixellated sand castle game where each player has to build his own world out of stones. Then there are the experimental games, like Flower, which requires players to take on the role of a petal being tossed in the wind. Because there are no major publishers behind indies, they usually don’t get distributed as DVDs. But there are several download platforms, says Mueller-Lietzkow. “The online sales of games has become almost taken for granted. A few years ago, it was unthinkable.” Source: AAP

MAKE/MODEL Hyundai i40 Tourer DETAILS Five-door, five-seat mid-sized sports wagon with choice of four-cylinder petrol or four-cylinder turbo-diesel engines and six-speed manual or automatic transmission.

HYUNDAI NAILS IT WITH THE i40 WORDS Peter Atkinson

Y

ou can’t help but like a car that plays you a little tune when you get into it. That same car gets even easier to like when it has a jazzy cockpit that looks like it’s straight out of a PlayStation game with its coloured lighting and ultra-modern design. The i40 is the wagon variant of Hyundai’s mid-sizer i45 and shares most of its mechanicals with its sedan sibling. But it looks better, has more space and arguably drives better than the sedan. The i40 gets its impressive mechanicals from the i45 with the choice of a two-litre, four-cylinder GDI (gasoline direct injection) petrol engine or a 1.7-litre turbo-diesel and six-speed manual or auto transmission (the auto’s a $2000 premium). We drove the petrol model, which is surprisingly peppy – giving more than acceptable performance. The engine has been developed by the Koreans and is the equal of anything you’re likely to see from Japan

MY W EEKLYPREVIE W. CO M . AU

33.indd 1

– producing 130 kilowatts, a useful 213 Newton metres of torque while sipping just 7.5l/100km in automatic form. The diesel boasts economy of 4.7l/100km, which Hyundai claims is best in class. The six-speed auto – also Koreandesigned and built – is likewise a pleasant surprise. Gear changes are intuitive and smooth, it changes up and down at the appropriate time, and it offers the option of a manual shift. The i40 is offered in three trim levels, with even the basic Active model generously equipped. I spent

the best part of a week trying to find something – anything – not to like about this car and came up prettymuch empty. It looks good, drives well, is well-built, has a frugal yet punchy engine and a silky transmission. It’s not long ago that many people – myself included – tended to sneer at Korean cars. Those days are well and truly gone.

TECH STUFF 2-litre four-cylinder GDI petrol engine produces 130kW@6500rpm; 213Nm@4700 rpm. 1.7-litre diesel produces 100kW, 330Nm. FEATURES Nine airbags, Vehicle Stability Management, Cornering Brake Control, electronic park brake, heated leather seats (Premium variant), Bluetooth hands-free phone operation, iPod connectivity. THIRST: 7.5l/100km (auto, petrol), 4.7l/100km (manual, diesel). VERDICT: A car to change the way we think about wagons, and about Korean cars. BOTTOM LINE: From $32,490, as tested Elite, automatic petrol model: $39,490. Source: AAP str/jca

RANGE ROVER SPORT REVITALISED FOR 2012

M

ore power, an eightspeed transmission and improved interior features are important parts of the Range Rover Sport in 2012. The 3.0-litre V6 diesel engines in the well-known model now offer even greater efficiencies, with reduced CO2, improved fuel economy and an increase in power for 2012.

The output of the more powerful 245PS engine has been increased to 256PS with CO2 emissions reduced from 243g/km to 230g/km. Meanwhile, CO2 emissions for the entry-level 211PS engine have been substantially reduced from 243g/km to 224g/km, thanks to a low-flow fuel-injection system.

These improvements are partly due to the introduction of the new, highly-efficient, ZF 8HP70, eight-speed automatic gearbox, combining smooth shifting and improved fuel economy. The 5.0 LR-V8 Supercharged remains unchanged for 2012, continuing to offer supreme power and sublime refinement, Land Rover says. Design and equipment levels have moved up a level too with exterior colour changes to detailing, and new interior colour schemes for the Autobiography Sport and Limited Edition. A new powered tailgate has also been introduced for the majority of markets across the range for 2012, enabling drivers to set their desired lift height. For the first time on the Range Rover Sport, the next generation seven-inch touch-screen is included with optional Dual View

technology, allowing the driver to view the navigation display while the passenger watches a DVD. The new ‘Say What You See’ voice command on premium systems helps the driver learn commands with useful step-by-step screen prompts and allows the use of spoken short codes. Significant specification and performance improvements have also been made to the Hi-ICE and Premium audio systems. “The enhancements to the 2012 Range Rover Sport will ensure this car retains its position as one of the most economical and dynamic highperformance SUVs on the market today,” says Land Rover global brand director John Edwards. “With greater levels of diesel engine efficiency, lower fuel emissions and exciting new features, the Range Rover Sport continues to live up to its reputation for power and refinement.”

The only 3 worth considering. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class range.

The reasons for choosing a Mercedes-Benz C-Class keep adding up. The C-Class Sedan reignites the thrill of driving with its envious list of standard appointments. The C-Class Coupé, with its alluring lines and dynamically sculptured body, begs to be admired. And the C-Class Estate, with its innate instinct for the road, handles like a sedan and features everyday practicality that takes life in its stride. Find out all the reasons why the C-Class is Australia’s favourite luxury mid-sized car at Garry Crick Prestige or www.myreasons.com.au

FERRARI OPENS MUSEUM IN MODENA

F

errari has opened a new museum in the home town of its founder Enzo Ferrari (1898-1988) featuring numerous famous race cars and personal items of the successful Italian carmaker, such as his dark sunglasses. The house in which the Ferrari founder was born forms part of the 5000-square metre complex with a massive yellow roof that was designed like a Ferrari bonnet by Czech star architect Jan Kaplicky. “This tribute to my father, who loved Modena profoundly, gives me immense pleasure,” says Piero Ferrari, Ferrari’s vice-president and Enzo Ferrari’s son, at the recent opening. “It provides an opportunity for anyone who wants to find out more about the man, his story and the link between the city and the world of engines.” Enzo Ferrari began his career as a racing driver, became a team manager at Alfa Romeo and founded the Scuderia Ferrari in 1947. He died in 1988 at the age of 90. The museum includes a teaching room with a digital archive centre as well as a conference room, projection room, retail shop and cafe. Source: DPA vg

White cars in fewer crashes Car buyers looking for good resale tend to opt for black, silver or dark blue vehicles, but when it comes to safety, experts say white should be the colour of choice. Germany’s Tuev-Nord testing agency says white cars are less likely to be crashed into by other vehicles when ambient light is poor. Black cars are the least visible. Accident figures show the risks posed by darker colours. Bright and vibrant colours reflect the light better, making them more visible. Research conducted by the Monash University Accident Unit found black cars were 12 per cent more likely than white ones to be involved in an accident. Source: DPA vg

HEALTH HUB

BOTTOM LINE PREVIEW Damian Brown from Urban 21 has this rundown on the Kawana hospital precinct and what it means for the Sunshine Coast.

T

he commencement of the massive Sunshine Coast University Hospital precinct heralds an exciting and unprecedented economic growth spike for this region. The implications for the immediate surrounds of its Kawana location will be far-reaching and immediate. The construction phase and subsequent operation of the hospital precinct is expected to generate billions of dollars in capital expenditure, significant new employment and wide-ranging demand for residential, retail and commercial uses, and with that valuable investment opportunities. Urban 21 Property Solutions has had a long-term involvement in the planning, site development and marketing in the Kawana locality. We understand well the economic drivers in place and the opportunities emerging.

WHAT IS IT? Centred on one of the largest hospital and associated healthcare projects undertaken in Australia, the precinct will provide a very powerful economic catalyst and employment generator for the Sunshine Coast. The components of the area include the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH), which will be developed as a private-public partnership with Queensland Health. The successful private entity, which will now come from a shortlist of three consortiums, will be decided in the first half of 2012. Stage one construction commences in 2013 to open in 2016. SCUH will provide 450 beds in 2016, expanding to 738 beds in 2021. With a $2 billion capital cost budget, the project will generate up to 2000 construction jobs at any

[ 38 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ AP RIL 13, 2012

one time and 3500 permanent hospital jobs. Also in the area is a private hospital, to be developed and operated by global hospital group Ramsay Health Care. It will be co-located with the SCUH and provide 200 beds. Construction commenced in late 2011 with completion in late 2013. It will create 360 construction jobs with 700 permanent medical and support employees. The Skills, Academic and Research Centre (SARC) will also provide education and research in the hospital campus. It has a $60.8 million capital investment with facilities for approximately 1300 students a year. SARC is a collaboration between the University of Queensland, the University of the Sunshine Coast and Sunshine Coast TAFE. It will provide jobs for 150 academic and support staff. Kawana Health Innovation Park (KHIP) is a commercial development precinct, distributed across a number of sites across the campus. The KHIP will deliver a range of ancillary health and support services. It is anticipated that construction of the Kawana town centre project, located almost adjacent to the SCUH precinct, will commence in 2013. The town centre project incorporates approximately 80,000 square metres of retail, commercial, community and entertainment uses plus a range of integrated medium-density residential development sites. It will generate an estimated 5000 construction and permanent jobs. It is expected the first stages of the medical precinct will be developed to coincide with the opening of the public hospital.

ECONOMIC BENEFITS The entire project will generate economic stimulus across the whole Sunshine Coast, with an economic multiplier effect well in excess of the project’s $2 billion capital cost. But it’s expected that the impact in the Kawana locality – as the ‘epicentre’ of this investment – will be most dramatic. The economic impact of the creation of almost 10,000 jobs – manning not only the medical operations but also the surrounding commercial, retail and residential development and spanning a range of skills, demographics and income levels – will create a dynamic ripple effect, particularly in terms of demand for housing, urban and personal services. It has been projected that the annual operating cost of the public hospital alone will be around $700 million, with a very large majority of that being spent within the region. While the two hospital projects will involve

It is realistic to expect there will be strong demand pressures on the existing residential stock in the surrounding locality Damian Brown, Urban 21

the relocation of existing regional medical services – and therefore existing Sunshine Coast workers – the majority of permanent positions will be newly created and will result in new families moving into the region. Significant economic activity will also be generated by these multiple project construction programs. Beginning with Ramsay Private’s construction team of 360, the daily construction workforce is expected to exceed 3000 once SCUH and adjoining developments are started.

approximately 3500 dwellings in the Birtinya neighbourhood and about 1000 planned for the beach-frontage Bokarina neighbourhood. There will be a mix of housing types including single-lot homes, townhouses and apartments, plus boardwalks, community facilities and quality open spaces. The local amenity is appealing to many buyers with a surf beach a walk away and schools, sporting facilities and community services close by. The residential neighbourhood is a short distance from the hospital precinct with access supported by planned pedestrian links. Given the above assumptions regarding both demand and supply, it is realistic to expect there will be strong demand pressures on the existing residential stock in the surrounding locality.

PLANNED REGIONAL GROWTH

T k over E Taken Easter, this hi photo h shows h construction i off the h Ramsay Private Hospital is well underway

RESIDENTIAL NEEDS While the health precinct will be established in a greenfield site, it is strategically adjacent to Stockland’s Kawana Waters master-planned community. Developers are committed to delivering an ongoing supply of housing, including

The SCUH health hub will be established in a single development time frame from 2011 to 2016 (with Ramsay Private operating from 2013), providing a very significant commercial ‘destination’ catalyst. This immediate, powerful anchor will mean many businesses representing the myriad medical, allied health and support services that typically co-locate near a major hospital precinct will want to establish themselves as close to the timing of the operating launch of the private hospital and SCUH precinct as possible. The master-planning has sought to bring the total hub together in an integrated, connected, campus-style framework. The mix of commercial attributes plus an expected financially strong profile of end-user businesses

will generally support the bankability, and likely green lighting of ancillary commercial projects, supporting the momentum generated by the core catalyst. It is expected that the commercial legitimacy and drawing power generated by the SCUH precinct will justify the accelerated development of the surrounding Kawana Waters planned community as one of three hubs in the southern half of the Sunshine Coast, which will account for the significant majority of the region’s planned medium and long term future growth. In the south, Caloundra South is expected to deliver a population of 50,000 and to the west, the Palmview project is expected to house 17,000 to 20,000 people. Palmwiew is also co-located near the University of the Sunshine Coast. Caloundra South and Palmview will have easy road access to the Kawana health hub. Ultimately Caloundra South will be connected to Kawana by rail and it is planned that Kawana and Palmview will be linked by a direct eastwest public transport corridor known as the Green Link. This relative positioning is considered to further strengthen the strategic positioning and value of the health hub and immediate surrounds.

ON TOP AND ON OFFER Walter Iezzi’s latest offering, a luxury apartment development in Buderim, is selling well.

B

uderim’s Monterey Apartments offer buyers luxury in a premium location, right on top of Buderim. Walter Iezzi, the managing director of Walter Iezzi Development Groups, says Monterey combines clever design and quality finishes at affordable prices. “With prices starting at just $465,000 for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, it represents great value and is a fantastic opportunity for buyers to secure a piece of affordable luxury close to all that Buderim has to offer,” Iezzi says. Monterey is Iezzi’s final development of its kind on Buderim. “With the first stage having been sold out and nearly 50 per cent sold in the final stage, I am looking towards my next project,” Iezzi says. At 140 square metres, Monterey’s apartments are large, and the clever use of space allows owners to convert the third bedroom into an additional living space. The study nook is another handy feature and the soaring ceilings give these light-filled apartments a sense of luxury and space. Quality finishes complete the design and

standard in all apartments are stunning stone benchtops and vanities, European appliances and 100 per cent plush wool carpets. Secluded balconies open up to ocean views, while some apartments enjoy a bush outlook. Residents have access to the saltwater resort-style pool and barbecue facilities in a pet-friendly

environment. Two-car garaging with lift access to every level also makes living easy. Located at a premium address on top of Burnett Street, Monterey is close to the hub of Buderim with its cafes and restaurants, shopping precincts, medical services, major banks, sporting facilities, schools and supermarkets.

SCHOOL IS IN RealWay takes a coffee break to help the Support Our Chappy campaign in Buderim.

C

offee lovers at Gloria Jeans Buderim thought they’d accidentally ended up on the wrong side of Burnett Street recently, when RealWay Buderim took over the store as part of the local Support Our Chappy campaign. The fundraising event was created by Gloria Jeans Buderim owners John and Maree Ratcliffe to keep Buderim Mountain State School’s chaplain, Dave Larkin, at the school for 2012. Ten Buderim businesses are monthly sponsors, and as part of its March sponsorship RealWay got to deck out the store in its company colours for a day. Gloria Jeans employees wore RealWay T-shirts and three regulars walked away with free coffee for a month, courtesy of principal Jarrad McCarthy and his team.

We understand the importance of having a mentor like Dave available for the local kids

Maree Ratcliffe & RealWay’s Lauren McCarthy “When John and Maree approached us with the opportunity to get involved with the Support out Chappy Program we committed immediately,” McCarthy says. “Role models play such an important role in the life of a child and we understand the importance of having a mentor like Dave available for the local kids. Being able to pull together with other local business owners to help provide such a wonderful service is what living in a great community like Buderim is all about.”

BUYERS BE AWARE

S

ome Queensland unit buyers may be moving into the units, unaware of restrictions on their properties that make permanent occupancy illegal. Archers Body Corporate management director Andrew Staehr says there are many strata-titled properties in Queensland with restrictions that prohibit permanent occupancy of units. “Neither we, nor the body corporate and its committee, have the power to restrict a particular type of occupancy under the Body Corporate Act,” Staehr says. “It is up to the local council to enforce the rules which apply to the property. We’re appealing to prospective unit owners to do their research before purchasing to avoid tenancy disputes.” Staehr advises prospective buyers to contact the council and check the building records to ensure there are no restrictions on permanent occupancy of the units. It’s also advisable to check the body corporate by-laws and talk to the body corporate manager or onsite manager about any restrictions in place.

Boys and their toys are all well catered for with a triple lock up garage and a massive walk in storage area. Outdoors is where the ac on is and the property has a massive boardwalk ideal for entertaining on the river, a large pontoon and inground pool. Make no mistake the owners are totally commi ed to sell and this riverfront property will be the next one to sell....... Sustainability declara on is available from Agent on request

10 Oak Court, Minyama Waters

OWNERS GOING CRUISING Absolutely sensa onal is a word that comes to mind when I inspected this impressive waterfront property. The real winning edge is not just the architecture but the way the floor plan has been designed. The outdoors is an integral part of the property and has been designed where the indoor and outdoor flow together making entertaining so much more enjoyable. The home is on two levels and will easily accommodate any lifestyle connoisseur. The kitchen is the vocal point of the property and has views overlooking all living areas and inground pool. The home boasts bedrooms that are beau fully appointed with mul ple bathrooms, large home oďŹ&#x192;ce and a full on cinema room. Outdoors the property has been stunningly landscaped with water features, a good size inground pool, large boardwalk ideal for entertaining over the water and a large pontoon. The owners have very much enjoyed their property and it has been a hard decision to make and move on. But their reason to sell is a very realis c one, for the property is simply too big for them and they now also have their boat and are keen to pack up and go cruising, providing a very genuine opportunity for you as the buyer.

NORTH ASPECT ON THE BROADWATER WITH PONTOON ACCESS Without a doubt this property is next in line to be sold for it’s extremely well posi oned, offers a lot and the owners don’t live in the property so it’s empty & ready to move into. The property has incredible poten al for further improvement, pull down and rebuild or to be quite honest the property is very liveable as is, but at the end of the day there’s VALUE……….. The property adjoins parkland and is set on large 932m2 allotment, North aspect, boardwalk and pontoon. The house itself has a large covered outdoor living area overlooking the pool and Gazebo. It also has casual and formal living/dining areas, 4 good size bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Make no mistake the owners want ac on and want the property sold…………..

L

andsborough is at the base of the southern end of the Blackall Range, 15 kilometres east of Maleny and 20 kilometres west of Caloundra. Named after British-born explorer William Landsborough, who was the first European to cross Australia north to south, the town has been regularly reinvented. Originally called Mellum Creek (mellum is an indigenous word for volcano), the first European settlers arrived in the area in 1871, when Isaac Burgess built a slab hut with bark roof that became a stopover for Cobb and Co coaches on the way to Gympie. One of the Sunshine Coast’s oldest townships, it became the main transport centre for produce brought down from the range after the railway opened in 1891. The rail services priority then switched to commuters coming from the west, east and north, to catch the train to Brisbane. After being bypassed by the Bruce Highway,

New residential estates have mushroomed and the pace continues to pick up as newcomers discover its quiet country lifestyle, within easy reach of city and coast

Historic Landsborough, named after British-born explorer William Landsborough

which now forms its eastern boundary, Landsborough turned itself into an arts and crafts centre, with some wonderful cafes, outdoor dining areas and interesting shops. It also has a brilliant historical museum, the Sunshine Coast’s first. New residential estates have mushroomed and the pace continues to pick up as newcomers discover its quiet country-town lifestyle, within easy reach of the city and coast.

The upgrade of the railway line between Caboolture and Landsborough will make the area even more appealing for residential development. Having once been the last Bruce Highway stop before the Caloundra turnoff, it is very close to the M1. The Landsborough district, which also continued page 91 >

unshine Coast Council has bought 46 hectares of conservation land at West Woombye to help protect the long-term health of the Coast’s habitat. The new reserve connects to existing reserves and the Triunia National Park, bringing the total protected network to 128 hectares. The acting manager for environment policy, Robyn Douglas, says protecting the region’s core habitat area is one of the key actions identified in the Sunshine Coast Biodiversity Strategy. “Purchasing this parcel of land has created a much larger protected habitat area,” she says. “This will ensure the area will continue to support a diverse range of native plants and animals into the future

and strengthen its resilience to disturbance.” This is one of the many key conservation projects funded by the Environment Levy. Other levy projects this year include: • A new Backyard Biodiversity module for council’s web-based Living Smart Program, • The development of the Coast’s first Biodiversity Report Card, • The ongoing rehabilitation of our coastal foreshore from Kings Beach to Sunrise Beach, • Large-scale rehabilitation of the riparian stretches in Mooloolah River catchment, • Environment grants to private landholders to undertake natural resource management activities on their property, and • Partnerships with 17 community environmental groups within the region.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 Relations with others won’t run according to plan – especially where money or possessions are involved. Just because you’re conscientious doesn’t mean those around you are too.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 You’re in the mood to communicate with a wide range of people, as your curiosity goes into overdrive. Unpredictable energy is about and your mind is bursting with ideas.

PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 You feel pulled in all directions this weekend as conflicting demands test your Piscean patience. Put aside time to be alone, where you can collect your thoughts.

ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20 Thank goodness mighty Mars moves forwards again on Saturday, and your Aries mojo returns in spades! Catching up with friends fires up your enthusiasm.

TAURUS Apr 21-May 21 Professional and business opportunities are all around, and deals will go particularly well with female colleagues, customers or clients. You feel like spending money on life’s little luxuries.

GEMINI May 22-Jun 21 You’ve got plenty to say so use your networking skills to get your message out to the world. With an innovative approach to work and relationships, you’ll win friends.

CANCER Jun 22-Jul 23 There may be some tension between keeping friends happy and fulfilling all of your family responsibilities. Single crabs – look for a lover who has emotional depth and maturity.

LEO Jul 24-Aug 23 It will be difficult to juggle work and relationship responsibilities this weekend – and don’t promise more than you can deliver! Keep things in perspective.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 As the sun moves through your aspirations zone, set challenging goals for the next month. Don’t let fear stop you from achieving your dreams. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 On Saturday, loved ones won’t be wildly affectionate but don’t take it personally. Making contact with an old friend – or recalling fond memories – brings much pleasure on Sunday.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 Are you a Scorpio slave to your usual weekend routine? With the moon in experimental Aquarius, it’s time to jump out of your comfort zone and take on exciting new challenges.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 You’re in the mood to socialise this weekend but take care to communicate clearly. You’re keen to help, but make sure your generosity doesn’t end up as empty promises.
