eading the fiscal musings of Reserve Bank governor Glenn Stevens is, for me, a bit like reading Spanish (and I can’t read Spanish). As one of this nation’s most important economists, on matters of finance Glenn’s language can be difficult for the non-fiscally minded to grapple with, but that doesn’t mean us plebs should ignore him. Recently he has had some very interesting things to say, which is why you’ll find him, this week, playing a major role in our cover story. Jarna Baudinette has deciphered his words, and those of some other pretty clever Australians, to bring you the latest on the nation’s housing market. If you’re sick of the hyperbole surrounding the economy and want a level-headed view of what’s really going on, and where we might be headed, turn the page. On the subject of the housing market, it

] seems that buyers are out but prices are still down, which means the bottom has probably been reached and while we may not see prices rise quickly in the near future, they will go up. Anyone wanting to buy a little investor (and if I had some spare cash at the moment that would be me) will find now is a good time. That’s why we’ve asked a few agents for their picks of investment properties for sale, and we feature that in MPP on page 40. In other news, I presented a few certificates at the local Housing Industry Association awards dinner on the weekend, and I was struck by the depth of building talent we have in the region. Next week we will bring you our special HIA feature, but for a sneak peek at the winners, head to page 18. We have more on the health hub (page 26), fantastic fashion (page 28) and the weekend gig guide (page 34) to keep you occupied.

HOUSE

PREVIEW There is plenty of interest from home owners and investors about where property prices will go. They might be pleased to know there are some strong indicators pointing towards a recovery of our property industry in the not too distant future. WORDS Jarna Baudinette

I

n a recent report on the Queensland economy, Colonial First State’s senior analyst for investment markets, Belinda Allen, said no matter where she travels in Australia, the question she encounters most often is her outlook for house prices. “With so much wealth tied up in the family home, and investment properties, this interest is easy to understand,” Allen said. In the late ’90s and early to mid 2000s, house prices were growing exponentially, leading many to believe property was the ultimate get-rich-quick solution. But there’s nothing like a global financial crisis to bring price growth – and our expectations – grinding to a halt. While there’s no doubt the housing industry has suffered, in her report Allen reminded readers that house price performance can be diverse depending on the region, contrasting price data from the Brisbane market with figures from the Gold Coast, Townsville and Cairns to show how local economic conditions impact each area. Since the GFC, house prices across Australia have softened between five and 10 per cent, and while some regional areas have dropped significantly more, others – such as parts of

Queensland and Western Australia heavily impacted by the mining sector – have fared better. In short, a region’s wider economy has a significant impact on its property market. Last year was a particularly challenging year for the Sunshine Coast, with a heavily subdued construction industry and shrinking retail and tourism sectors wearing down consumer sentiment. Correspondingly, median sales figures released by the Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) in June showed Sunshine Coast house prices softened 3.6 per cent over the previous year, and what the REIA deems ‘other dwellings’ – units, flats and townhouses – experienced a much greater drop of 8.5 per cent. However, over the most recent quarter the drop for other dwellings on the Sunshine Coast reduced to 2.2 per cent and house prices actually grew (albeit modestly) by 0.9 per cent. While prices certainly aren’t rising in significant terms, they do appear to have settled somewhat. An August 19 statement from the Real Estate Institute of Queensland said while sales volumes had been down over the June quarter, as buyers “retreated from the property market … [and] waited for the

return of stamp duty concessions”, house prices had held their ground, “remaining steady in the face of lower sales activity across the state”. REIQ CEO Anton Kardash said in the statement while the fundamentals of the Queensland property market are positive, it is important for Queenslanders to remember real estate is predominantly a confidence-based industry. “We had improving confidence levels at the start of the June quarter, but the continued economic uncertainty here and overseas has had an impact on confidence levels generally,” he said. “We believe the market will eventually start to hit its stride in a more vigorous manner due to pent-up demand, population growth and the ongoing mining boom putting pressure on the real estate market. “But this may take longer than we originally believed because of the ongoing uncertainty about our state’s finances. Once this has been addressed, we should see the gates of confidence open once more.” Property analyst Michael Matusik also sees a lack of dwelling investment as “one of the biggest drags on the economy”, writing on his blog that, “For the property market, as I have repeated many times of late, one of the crucial missing ingredients is confidence.” In fact, a range of economic analysts have arrived at similar conclusions. In December last year the ANZ Australian Property Outlook found uncertainty was high despite fundamentals pointing to a “cautiously optimistic medium-term” view of housing, supported by “a robust economic outlook, limited forced selling, improved affordability and an ongoing tightening of the Australian housing/supply balance”. In addition to global economic and job uncertainty, ANZ economists attributed this “toxic” sentiment to “continued predictions of an imminent collapse in Australian house prices by some commentators”, which have “weighed on market confidence”. In late July Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA)

The market will eventually start to hit its stride in a more vigorous manner due to pent-up demand, population growth and the ongoing mining boom putting pressure on the real estate market Anton Kardash

governor Glenn Stevens addressed these predictions in a speech titled The Lucky Country, saying the “large run-up” in dwelling prices Australia experienced alongside most of the developed world until a few years ago, and subsequent “painful corrections” seen in places such as the US and UK, had left many wondering whether Australia “can escape the same outcome”. Stevens said that nationally, Australian dwelling prices have already declined to about where they were in 2002, and went on to discuss some of the issues associated with attempting to compare our property market with overseas examples. While he conceded it was “a very dangerous idea to think that dwelling prices cannot fall; they can, and they have”, Stevens also concluded “historical or international comparisons, to the extent they can be made, do not constitute definitive evidence of an imminent slump”, and that the market elements the RBA would look for as signalling this are “less in evidence now than five years ago”. “Dwelling prices have already declined, relative to income, and it is in fact not obvious that they are particularly high compared with most countries. Housing ‘affordability’ has improved significantly; over 99 per cent of bank-held mortgages are being serviced fully,” Stevens said. The March NAB State Economic update found despite state housing markets weakening through 2011, “mortgage arrears have not ticked up in any major way”, meaning “there is no evidence of widespread forced sales” or the

economic or labour market conditions that would drive them. “In other words, the current pull-back in the housing market is largely a cyclical phenomenon,” it said. As well as market confidence and regional economic conditions, in Queensland this is linked to slow population growth and recent weak construction activity. The latter appears to be improving, with the Urban Development Institute of Australia reporting a 6.8 per cent increase in the value of residential building work done over the June quarter, following on from the five per cent rise in March 2012 recorded by the ABS. Another key indicator of housing demand is home loan approvals, and in August Australia’s largest mortgage broker, AFG, recorded its highest level of approvals since March 2009. The three-and-a-half-year high is a 10 per cent increase on the previous month’s figures (where approvals unexpectedly dropped one per cent nationwide) and a 7.4 per cent increase on August 2011. While the nationwide level of approvals has fluctuated in the first half of 2012, the July data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows a growth of just over two per cent from the historically low levels seen in the same month last year. Nationwide figures for August won’t be released until later in the year, but given the strong performance of AFG – which provides a fifth of Australia’s brokers with access to lending institutions – there is reason to hope these will again show modest growth, indicating more buyers continued over >

<from previous page are gearing up to enter the property market. This may be because, despite popular conceptions, in purely economic terms housing is reasonably affordable at the moment. According to Stevens, the “repayment on a new loan on a median-priced house as a share of average income is now at its lowest for a decade” (discounting the emergency interest rate period of 2009). ANZ found that while median house prices have increased at a rate almost 50 per cent higher than that of median household incomes since the mid 1980s, when today’s lower interest rates are factored in “the average household’s purchasing power over the median priced home is currently almost exactly the same” as it was then. Spring is traditionally a time when new properties come onto the market, however anecdotally many local real estate agents are reporting a shortage of stock rather than a glut. This is mostly because, when priced right, the listings they have are selling more quickly. While many potential vendors remain cautious about the state of the market, if you’re thinking about selling the evidence suggests there have been – note the past tense there – worse times to do it. In the first week of September, Brisbanebased JA Group recorded its highest number of

bidder registrations per auction across the year for South-East Queensland, with buyer activity significantly higher than the winter months. Director Jason Andrew says the current market is the best he’s seen in five years. “Although there is not yet any upward pressure on prices, we are seeing vendor expectations in line with current market value teamed with a heavy level of buyer demand, resulting in healthy sales outcomes,” Andrew says. However, if you’re still hung up on prices, remember Belinda Allen’s advice that housing values can vary widely depending on the region (and are extremely difficult to predict). As MWP reported back in March, as much as

60 per cent of a home’s value can be attributed to factors such as location, the demographics and income of the surrounding area, and the quality of local infrastructure. While the Sunshine Coast has struggled over the past few years, the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and surrounding Oceanside development are set to have a huge impact on our local market. And while the fundamentals of the Queensland market remain strong, this multibillion-dollar project will create local increases in population growth, construction activity and hopefully consumer sentiment – all of which are key to the healthy recovery of a property industry.

THE MAN WHO INVENTED VEGEMITE

From left: Nick 16, Sophie, 18, Jamie and Lucy, 14, toast Cyril Percy Callister, the man who invented Vegemite.

J

amie Callister celebrated with a toast this week – toast with Vegemite that is – when his book The Man Who Invented Vegemite was released by Murdoch Books. The grandson of Cyril Percy Callister, the man who invented Vegemite, the younger Callister has spent the past seven years researching and writing the previously unknown and untold story of how his

grandfather invented the product that has become an Australian icon. “He was the grandfather I never knew but I now feel like I know him incredibly well,” says Callister. “More importantly, I consider him to be one of our great Australians in every sense of the word.” Callister began his quest to uncover the story after discovering a collection of more than 50 letters and a Second World War flight logbook that had been collected by his grandfather and stored in an old trunk. He says the story parallels some of the major events from the 20th century – the two World wars, the Great Depression and the polio epidemic – all of which shaped his grandfather’s destiny. However, it was more than 15 years before Vegemite started to become accepted by the nation. “It was particularly unpopular and at one time they changed the name to Parwill – if Marmite, Parwill,” Callister says.

“For years, more jars were coming back to the factory than were going out. The public just couldn’t stomach it and the head salesman didn’t help – he hated the stuff. “My grandfather thought he could even be looking for a new job.” Callister says his grandfather’s dedication and commitment to the nutritional value of his product, in particular the Vitamin B it was rich in, became Cyril’s life’s work until he died in 1949. Jamie says it’s a remarkable story for all Australians whether you liked the black stuff or not. “Vegemite already has a clear place in Australian households, however, I hope now when Australians are putting Vegemite on their toast they will know its story, its place in history and who invented it,” Callister says. The Queensland launch of the book will be held at the Noosa Heads Surf Lifesaving Club on Tuesday October 30. For information and bookings call 5447 4433.

Patience please on Sunshine Motorway Speed restrictions on a busy section of Sunshine Motorway will remain at least until the completion of road work to begin next month. A Department of Transport and Main Roads spokeswoman says the 80km/h limit in place for a section of motorway between Coolum and Marcoola is the result of road surface repair work.

The section has been subject to reduced speeds for at least two months. “The most damaged section must remain at 80km/h for safety reasons until permanent resurfacing works can be undertaken. These works will start next month,” she says. “Changed traffic conditions or partially completed works may

require lower speed limits even when there are no roadworkers present. She says many factors, including lane width and pavement composition, determine speed restrictions. “We remind motorists to please obey the speed limit and drive to changed traffic conditions at all times,” she says.

GOOD AUSSIE FUN Spring has sprung at Aussie World, and one of the Sunshine Coast’s favourite amusement parks offers plenty to do these school holidays. The weather is getting warmer, and the kids can cool off in the new water ride Plunge, which has two steep climbs and drop-offs. Riders climb aboard hollowed-out logs that are propelled through a waterway and treated to two water splashes created by the downhill momentum of the log flume ride. It’s a fun way to cool down! After wetting your pants on the Plunge you can dry off on thrill ride Redback. Adventurous souls can climb into one of the 24 seats and get themselves into a spin, but watch out – staff at Aussie World say it’s got quite a bite. Once your pants have well and truly dried off on the Redback, try out the Giant Slide. The lofty platform is five storeys high and offers a bird’s eye view of the surrounds. Aussie World is an all-weather venue and admission includes

LIVING CHOICE KAWANA ISLAND GOES “RETRO” You could have been forgiven for thinking you had stepped back in Ɵme at Living Choice Kawana Island when the residents hosted a 60’s party. RESIDENT DAVE PATON REPORTS. The Living Choice Kawana Island leisure centre was transformed into a different world where once again people danced to that special 1960s beat. Colourful lights also danced across the walls to the music of The Kinks, The Searchers, The Hollies, Gerry and the Pacemakers, The Beatles and many more. Larva lamps pulsated to the music throughout the night with each table illuminated by the obligatory “candle in a bo le”. Posters from a bygone age adorned the walls and the room was full of young-at-heart, vibrant people. It was truly fabulous, or should I say fab! Male residents were unrecognisable – they not only had hair, it was long, ed with bandanas and not grey. They wore mul -coloured shirts, unbu oned to the waist, and “ban the bomb” necklaces and beads. The

female residents were even more gorgeous than the men. Some dressed as hippies, others had incredible short mini-skirts complete with white boots and long eyelashes. The food also returned to the six es with plenty of different nibbles on cocktail s cks (including cheese and pineapple), cheese and onion “crisps”, nuts, cheese straws, sausage rolls and a variety of pressed meats. The “Retro Happening” was a huge success and each me another six es hit was played, not only could you understand the words, you knew what was coming next, such as: “sweets for my sweet, sugar for my *****.” So remember; the next me you are in our village you may meet “gentle people with flowers in their hair”.

NO EMERGENCY ALERT IN PHONE BLACK SPOTS

P

eople in remote parts of Victoria will miss out on text message alerts about natural disasters because of poor mobile phone reception, the state’s emergency services commissioner says. Optus has reached an agreement with state and federal governments which will mean its customers receive an SMS warning on their mobile phones if they’re in a region hit by fires or flood. Optus is the third major service provider to join the National Emergency Alert System, with Telstra customers to receive the warnings from this November while Optus and Vodafone customers will receive them from November 2013. The location-based emergency alert system was a key recommendation of the royal commission into Victoria’s 2009 Black Saturday bushfires which killed 173 people.

But Emergency Services Commissioner Michael Hallowes, who led the negotiations with the telcos, warned that the system should not be solely relied on. “If there isn’t coverage then there won’t be an alert signal either,” he says. “Emergency alerts will only be as good as the mobile phone coverage.” Optus already has a locationbased SMS alert system which it says it will continue to use until the national system is implemented.

ew Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key is promising there will be no backdown on the country’s nuclear-free status as part of renewed co-operation with the United States. US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta visited New Zealand last week, and raised the possibility of having US troops based there. “If New Zealand feels that’s something they would support or want, we certainly are more than ready to engage them in that kind of relationship. We think it would be very helpful,” Panetta told TVNZ’s Q&A program. During his visit, Panetta announced New Zealand navy vessels will be able to visit Defence Department and Coastguard facilities in the US and around the world. Key has also invited a US Coastguard vessel to visit New Zealand – as long as it’s not nuclear-powered.

John Key and Leon Panetta “There’ll be no change to New Zealand’s anti-nuclear legislation, no change to the provisions about boats that would come to New Zealand,” he told TVNZ’s Breakfast. Restrictions on talks between officials and joint military exercises are also being lifted. The moves are seen as a thawing of relations strained for decades by New Zealand’s anti-nuclear policies.

A CLASS OF

THEIR OWN PREVIEW Education must become more culturally relevant before indigenous youth will see the benefits of showing up and seeing it through. WORDS Katina Curtis, AAP IMAGES AAP

A

quarter of a century ago an Australian rock band took its music to the outback. What Midnight Oil frontman Peter Garrett learned on that 1986 Blackfella/Whitefella tour still drives him in his job today. The federal schools minister has a “real burning desire” to help improve the lot of young indigenous people. “When I first travelled into remote areas and met many Aboriginal people in communities … I saw how important and crucial, in fact, education was to those communities,” he says. His passion for indigenous education policy is evident in his Parliament House office: a pinboard crammed with drawings and messages from students at schools in remote

[ 22 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ SE P TE M B E R 28, 2 0 1 2

communities. Just a week ago he was in Wadeye, near Darwin, opening a new boarding facility the government funded to help ensure the kids there attend school. When Garrett was interviewed for this story, he was hosting a work experience student as part of the Learn Earn Legend! program for indigenous students in years 11 and 12. But for all the ministerial attention to indigenous education, the indicators show not much is improving. NAPLAN results from 2011 show indigenous students’ results continue to be substantially lower than nonindigenous students across all ages. The Council of Australian Governments (COAG) has targets to halve the gap for indigenous students in reading, writing and numeracy achievement by 2018, and to halve the gap of

M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW.C OM .A U

year 12 attainment rates by 2020. However, the most recent COAG Reform Council progress report, released almost a year ago, warned it would be difficult to meet the first target with states and territories falling behind in early years. The same report also found school attendance rates continued to fall in almost every jurisdiction. Upon releasing the report, council chair Paul McClintock said the declining attendance was among some of the most confronting pieces of data he’d ever seen. “There’s not the slightest possibility of closing gaps … if that number of children have opted out of the system,” he said. Another COAG committee, which reviewed government service provision, released a report this month showing $2.99 was spent on schooling per head of indigenous population for every $1 spent per non-indigenous person. The almost $2 gap is partly explained by a higher proportion of indigenous people being of school age than the general population. Garrett acknowledges there’s more to do, but he was keen to highlight some schools and students were doing really well. “We cannot in any way have another generation of Aboriginal students in Australia not perform to their capacity, not come through school with the means of working and learning and of providing,” he says. “We need to have a number of key things in place in every school setting. “We know what they are but we need to make sure they’re in place and that the effort is continued.”

These include strong and committed leadership from schools and communities, personalised learning plans and setting high expectations for students. Garrett points to the first national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education plan, agreed to by all governments, as giving a solid template on how to proceed. Indigenous education expert Dr Bill Fogarty, from the ANU National Centre for Indigenous Studies, says community engagement and making education relevant are important factors. International research shows test-driven agendas and programs unconnected to children’s real lives are particularly unproductive for indigenous students. “We need to refocus on programs and policy that really engage indigenous communities in the education process,” Fogarty says. The question of community engagement can be a difficult one for governments to resolve. Garrett has seen how excited and proud communities are when their young people do well and become leaders. The minister says he makes it his “constant mantra” to reinforce the importance of education to parents. And he says governments can give schools and principals tools to help them engage parents and local communities. Fogarty says low attendance rates often indicate the education on offer is not seen as valuable or useful. But punitive responses, like aligning parental welfare payments to kids’ school attendance, are ultimately only short-term fixes. “A better policy approach is to invest in and support place-based strategies that give education a point in the local context and link to opportunities

We need to refocus on programs that really engage indigenous communities

in the wider world,” he says. “This also means supporting programs that value indigenous languages and that link to local people’s economic and social development aspirations. “That way you make education important for everyone involved and provide real pathways for the kids’ futures.” Garrett agrees on the importance of recognising culture, saying it should be placed on an equal footing with literacy and numeracy in schools. “One shouldn’t be seen in isolation to the other; they play different roles but they are absolutely crucial,” he says. “A strong connection to culture is to make sure that people within the school setting are able to be acknowledged and taught in a way which reflects this experience they bring with them.” Ultimately, Garrett believes while it will be a struggle, work is in train to “get on top of decades of challenge”. “We now need to keep our foot on that accelerator pedal; we need to hold hands with others who are part of this journey and we need to hang on, hold on and keep going until we all get there,” he says.

R

eporting season has come and gone and analysts are now taking a well-earned breather. We have extracted some of the key themes and present a list of our top picks for the next six months. Industrial companies were mostly upbeat in their outlook statements, indicating that growth was on the cards. However, mining service companies erred on the side of caution in light of the uncertainty around global commodity markets. Internet-related names again reported good results, driven by continued secular trends towards online useage. Travel and entertainment stocks

reported reasonable results. Telcos were another bright spot with continued market share gains and robust underlying demand remaining themes for the strong players. Five stocks that reported encouraging results and are well placed to continue growing into 2013 include Domino’s Pizza (DMP), Reckon Limited (RKN), Magellan Financial (MFG), Slater & Gordon (SGH) and Super Retail Group (SUL). Zeroing in on Domino’s Pizza Enterprises (DMP) we can see very encouraging signs after its recent results. DMP has continued to deliver strong earnings growth with FY12 net profit after tax, growing 25 per cent and net cash doubling to $26.3 million. This has been a result of an extension of its market leadership in Australia and NZ, coupled with long-term upside from its European expansion. This provides confidence that the business will continue to deliver our forecast 17 per cent EPS compound annual growth.

By way of background, Domino’s holds the master franchise rights for the Domino’s Pizza brand and network in Australia, New Zealand, France, Belgium and the Netherlands, with earnings generated from a combination of store sales, royalties and franchise fees. We rate management highly, with a proven track record of consistently delivering earnings growth above expectations. Directors and senior management own around eight per cent of total shares on issue. The majority of the core management team has been in the business for longer than seven years with the CEO and COO more than 15 years. Overall we believe DMP has the correct mix of management with local European experience and operational Australian and NZ experience to drive the business forward.

A FUTURE-PROOF INDUSTRY

Y

Australia’s hospitals have always had an important place in our healthcare system and the importance will continue in an increasingly globalised world. Rising income levels, better standards of living and technological advances mean we are all living longer, and an ageing population will increase demand for healthcare services into the future. Populations will always gravitate to infrastructure and services, and a health precinct, such as the one now sprouting in Kawana, will attract growth to a region. A recent report by analysts IBISWorld shows that Australia’s

ou don’t have to look far to find opponents of globalisation lamenting the impact that the growth of the online world has had on traditional sectors such as retail and manufacturing. Local business owners find it tough competing with manufacturers and retailers in other parts of the nation and overseas, but a localised industry that can’t be outsourced to China or bought from the US will benefit the Sunshine Coast region and economy for years into the future.

general hospitals industry encompasses more than 1300 hospitals and close to 85,000 beds. IBISWorld expects the industry to generate revenue of more than $53 billion in 2012-2013. This shows growth of about 4.2 per cent on the previous financial year. And that growth is expected to continue into the future – IBISWorld predicts an annualised increase of more than four per cent for five years. The growth in the industry is attributed to the increasing Australian population, an ageing population and advances in medical technologies. It also helps that the Federal Government is stepping up its contribution to hospital funding. From 2014-15, the government contribution to growth funding for hospitals will step up to 45 per cent, increasing to 50 per cent in 2017-18. According to IBISWorld, the hospitals industry is considered to show low market share concentration. The industry’s top three players are Metropolitan Health Service, Ramsay Health Care and Healthscope. Ramsay Health Care was established in Sydney almost half a century ago, and now operates 117 hospitals and day surgery facilities in our nation and overseas. It now has an interest in our region. Ramsay Health Care will own and operate the Sunshine Coast’s new private hospital, which is due to open next year.

Monitoring the flow-on effect The Sunshine Coast Business Council (SCBC) is the leading advocacy group representing business on the Coast. In August the SCBC held a forum on the ripple effect from the Kawana health precinct for business in the region, uncovering challenges and opportunities for the Sunshine Coast. The forum identified six key sectors that will be the main beneficiaries of the precinct’s economic ripple effect. E-health and wellbeing is perhaps the most obvious sector, along with supply chain industries, education and construction. But tourism and transport will also get a boost, according to forum attendees. Likely impediments to success, and the ways to address these impediments, were also discussed. The business council will be keeping a close eye on the Kawana development and will report back regularly to its members. An update is scheduled for October 25, and My Weekly Preview will keep readers posted on news from the SCBC.

12 TIPS TO BEAT PROCRASTINATION WORDS Sarah Welch and Alicia Rockmore, AAP

P

rocrastination torpedoes productivity, harms self-esteem and is a major source of stress. Piers Steel, social scientist, professor and author of the book The Procrastination Equation, explains that procrastination occurs when our logical planning brain, the prefrontal cortex, intends to do something but that plan gets overridden by our more powerful, impulsive and emotional brain, the limbic system, because it has a competing desire.

If you tend to put things off, try these strategies and waste time no longer: 1. Place a physical ‘impulse interrupter’ on procrastination devices like TVs and game consoles. For example, tape a note to your TV remote control that says, “Can you really afford to turn this on?” 2. Set a timer. Our brains tend to overestimate the amount of time it will take to complete a task. Set the timer on your smartphone and see if you can beat the clock. 3. Eliminate alerts. Vibrating phones and email dings are effectively conditioning you to procrastinate and/or interrupt more productive work. Turn them off.

4. Pay for blocking software. Software programs like Concentrate for Macs and Freedom for Macs and PCs are worth their weight in gold. 5. Stand up and do breathing exercises for two to five minutes. Shallow breathing and/or holding your breath, both of which people are likely to do when watching TV or while hunched over a computer, triggers your body’s fight-or-flight reflex and effectively shuts down your prefrontal cortex. 6. Keep impulse-drivers out of your environment. Have a set time and day once a week to give your environment a clean sweep. The less mess around you, the greater the chances

you will be able to concentrate. 7. Reward the completion of small goals – this can be the key to accomplishing bigger ones. 8. Designate an anti-procrastinating buddy and call him/her when you need help. The quick pep talk is likely to increase your motivation levels – and increase your chances of being productive. 9. Develop and repeat an if-then statement. Research is emerging showing that simple if-then statements are very effective at helping you follow through on good intentions. For example, if you have to get a writing project done, create a statement that says, “If I find myself procrastinating by (pick your most frequent poison), then I will stand up, do deep-breathing exercises and turn my attention to (the task I was putting off).” 10. Identify your peak hour. Determine what that time is for you and do work that requires concentration during that time window. 11. Break down problems. Doing one activity at a time can increase your chance of successfully overcoming your procrastination. 12.

THE SIN OF SERVING WINE AT THE WRONG TEMPERATURE

Y

ou don’t have to be a weather forecaster or a doctor to appreciate the significance of temperature. It is the same with wine. There is nothing more exasperating than getting wine at the wrong temperature (except having no wine at all). Now I am not a wine snob. Unfortunately, as soon as you say that it implies you are. Just like when someone says, “I’m not a coffee snob, or I’m not racist”, I love all wines, but when a sexy white wine is served up colder than a spinster at a singles dance, it makes me hot under the collar. And the opposite situation is true with respect to reds served up hotter than a mother-inlaw’s tongue.

Wine is about aromatics and structure and these are adversely affected by unsuitable temperatures. If the wine is too cold, you can’t appreciate the full experience of its beautiful aromas. It is often said the worse the wine the colder it should be served. Tea is a great example of what temperature does to tannin and hence structure. Hot tea is not as astringent as cold tea and that is the same link with red wine. You want that structure to give the wine body. Ideally, whites should be between six and eight degrees. Reds should be about 16 degrees for lighter reds like pinot noir and 20 to 22 degrees for heavy reds. These temperature ranges make a mockery of serving wine at room temperature in summer in Queensland. The room temperature concept is a European tradition where the climate is a little milder. You can see why you should pop your reds in the fridge for 10 to 20 minutes before serving over summer and don’t over-ice the whites.

I have seen a few people put ice cubes in their wine. I am not sure what is going through their mind but I have a mate who refuses to take good wine to his in-laws, as the mother-in-law immediately tosses in three ice cubes no matter how good the wine is. In fact, he has told me he’s gotten the cheapest cask wine he can find and whacks it in a bottle especially for her. Clever and getting kudos. Wait until his wife reads this! Champagne doesn’t have to be ice-cold either. Most of the champagne houses suggest about four degrees for serving. Some of the cheaper sparkling wines probably should be icy cold but you can always disguise them by adding a liqueur like Cassis (blueberry) or Midori and give it a fancy title like a ‘fizzy gel renepo’. Forgetting about the complexities, wine is meant to be enjoyed (responsibly) with company and food. According to little Miss Plonk, even weather forecasters like to go to bars – isobars!

AAP

PREVIEW ‘Education Through Libation’ is Dr Plonk’s motto. He has spent most of his legal drinking age life around wine, and through his many wine travels is focused on the fun, frivolity and the demystification of wine.

Chowing down 80 metres underground Award-winning chef Niklas Ekblom has opened a new restaurant in Finland that turns the idea of “pop-up” eateries upside-down: his restaurant is 80 metres underground. Discerning food lovers are being served salted salmon, veal tenderloin, snails cooked in Pernod, and apple crumble in the ‘pop-down’ restaurant in a limestone mine in the small, southern town of Lohja, 60 kilometres west of Helsinki. A four-course evening meal costs about 128 euro (about $160), and includes drinks and transportation down to the mine and back up.

NO SLOWING DOWN FOR DAZZA WORDS Nathan Evans

WHERE: Caloundra RSL DATE: Thursday, October 4. 7.30pm TICKETS: $25. Book online at www.caloundrarsl.com.au

USSIE music legend Daryl Braithwaite likes nothing more than stopping by the beach for a few waves when he’s here on the Coast. But when he hits Caloundra next month for a one-night-only concert there will be no time for play. For a man who has enjoyed one of the longest careers a musician could hope for, a busy schedule beckons. “But I must add that I will be up that way, in Noosa, in November for a little break around the time I plan to go to see Coldplay in Brisbane. Those few days off in Noosa will suffice,” says Braithwaite. With four decades’ worth of hits to his name, both as a solo artist and member of Sherbet, Braithwaite shows no signs of slowing. He’s set to release a six-track EP next month, with at least two songs from that release making their way into the Caloundra concert line-up on October 4. His solo and band hits over the years include Howzat, All I Do, As the Days Go By and of course the track that still fetches the highest number of requests today. “If we didn’t play Horses I think we’d be lynched,” Braithwaite tells MWP. Melbourne-born Braithwaite has also recently

turned to writing more of his music in collaboration with friend Oliver Jones. “I’m certainly not a prolific writer, I dabble in it. Oliver and I have both contributed to the new EP, he’s been good for me.” The 1980s hit One Summer is among Braithwaite’s personally written songs. At 63 and with a glorious career to his name – one that began back in Sydney in the 1960s as part of various rock groups – Braithwaite says retirement isn’t an option, with the call of the fans still louder than the call of the ocean. “If I retire I’d go mad. I don’t know what I’d do. It’s like many people – when it comes to retirement some embrace it, and some would say they don’t know what they’d do if they weren’t working. “I tell my son that I am lucky to be able to do something that started out as a whim and a hobby and has become a career. “First and foremost I’m just grateful that it has gone on that long, but I think a lot of it has to do with chemistry of the band. We’ve all been together for a long time… so we all get on really well, as well as the boys in Sherbet did,” he says. “I think it’s passion as well, I still have a love of playing live.”

RELIVE THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHERE: Diggers Bar, Tewantin-Noosa RSL DATE: Friday September 28, 8pm TICKETS: $10 for members, $20 for non-members Fans of American rock from the ‘90s are in for a treat at Tewantin-Noosa RSL tonight, as two classic tribute shows kick off for the one ticket price. The show will open with the Summer of ’69 Bryan Adams Experience, showcasing Adams’ hits including Run to You, Somebody, Heaven and Everything I

Adding to her string of successes, Bec Laughton was a winner at the 2012 Queensland Music Awards, taking out the top honour in the Dance/Electronic category.

The Brisbane talent was also nominated in the 2012 International Independent Music Awards and secured nominations in four categories of the MusicOz Awards. With five nominations and high commendations for the Q Song awards over the past three years, there is no question of Lady Laughton’s ability to pen a tune. Don’t miss her Coast show.

MAKE/MODEL LEXUS GS350, GS450h DETAILS Four-door luxury executive sedan with choice of standard V6 engine or six-cylinder petrol/electric Hybrid; six-speed auto transmission.

LEXUS MAKES A MOVE WITH EXECUTIVE SEDAN WORDS Peter Atkinson, AAP IMAGE AAP

L

exus talks about its “relentless pursuit of perfection”. I’m inclined to call it a relentless pursuit of the Germans. Ever since Toyota launched its own luxury brand, the marque has had Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi in its sights. And it’s done a pretty decent job of it, sneaking closer and closer to the standard set by these German thoroughbreds. But there remains one glaring exception – the executive sedan class. So with greatness in its sights, Lexus recently rolled out an all-new version of the GS. At very least, it’s a great improvement. We started in the GS350 F-Sport ($106,996 on road) and later tested the hybrid-powered GS450h Sports Luxury ($128,438). The Hybrid can be had for as ‘little’ as $105,998, although the additional $20-grand is money well spent – more luxury, more gadgets, noticeably more power and a greatly reduced thirst (a staggering 6.3 litres per 100 kilometres). The previous GS was comfortable, but a disappointingly soft driving

MY W EEKLYPREVIE W. CO M . AU

experience, but it’s clear the Lexus engineers have ramped up the sporty factor with this new model. From the adjustable suspension to the 233 kilowatts available from the standard 3.5-litre V6, the GS350 feels sharper and more responsive to drive than before. It handles better than just about any Lexus we’ve ever tested. Because the GS450h can operate solely as an electric vehicle, it truly is whisper-quiet, but even when the V6

kicks in the cabin is a tranquil place. It accelerates with oodles of punch from just about any speed. The front end is all air intakes, driving lights and spoilers. It looks sharp, but I wonder whether it’s trying just a bit too hard. There’s no doubt Lexus has come a long way from those early days, when the first ES model looked like a glorified version of that era’s Toyota Camry. This latest model GS could scarcely be further from that.

TECH STUFF GS350 uses 3.5-litre, direct injection V6 with 233kW, 378Nm; six-speed automatic with sports mode. GS450h uses Atkinson Cycle all-alloy V6 producing 254kW, 352Nm (petrol) plus 275Nm (electric); Continuously Variable Transmission with paddle shifters. FEATURES 10 airbags, ABS with brake assist; Vehicle Swerve Control, Dynamic Integrated Management; reversing camera, front and rear parking sensors; rain-sensing wipers, automatic Bi-Xenon active headlights; blind spot monitor, driver fatigue monitor; head-up display; electrically adjustable leather seats with internal heating and cooling; 8-inch LCD screen (12.3 inch on Hybrid model). THIRST GS350 petrol 9.7L/100km; GS450h 6.3L/100km. VERDICT The Hybrid is breathing down the Germans’ necks. BOTTOM LINE GS350 from $96,6476 on road (as tested $106, 996); GS450h from $105,998 on road (as tested $128,438).

NEWS & VIEWS

GLOBAL SITE NOW LIVE IN AUSTRALIA

A

n online real estate resource, which features hundreds of thousands of home listings in more than 85 countries, has now been launched in Australia. The new site, a click away at global.remax.com, is a complement to remax.com.au and allows consumers to search for properties to buy and rent around the world. RE/MAX Australia managing director Michael Davoren says the company’s clients called for a “comprehensive resource for international properties”. “We’re seeing an increasing number of foreign buyers looking for property in Australia and vice versa,” he says. “Global.remax.com is essentially a one-stop source for residential and commercial real estate, no matter where you live. Australia is now a focal point in the global real estate market and historically our industry has been a little non-engaged in that space, especially considering more than one in five people in Australia do not have English as their first language at home.”

Translatable in more than 31 languages in more than 85 countries, the global site also includes a world property channel, a news feed for the latest news and events, and a currency converter. “Consumers have an appetite for a website that gives them not only the home listings from around the world, but in their own language and in their own currency,” says Davoren. For RE/MAX agents, “it means more exposure for their listings to consumers around the globe at no cost, as well as more opportunities for cross-border RE/MAX referrals”.

Award winner now at Platinum It’s often said the kitchen is the most important room in a home, which gives new local agent Karen Cleeton an edge when it comes to selling real estate. Cleeton has recently joined the sales team at Platinum Properties’ after 16 years running award-winning design and manufacturing business Zente Exquisite Kitchens. As well as plenty of experience tailoring kitchens to her clients’ needs, Cleeton also renovated two of her own homes in the Bokarina beach courts, which achieved record sale prices, while one earned her a HIA award for the best kitchen renovation on the Sunshine Coast. Cleeton says her experience allows her to offer clients a unique sales service. “I think presentation is everything – if you want to perform and get the best dollar for your home, you need to present it as best you can,” she says. “I certainly know my product and can give clients more of an insight on how to present your home for the best possible result.”

CANCER Jun 22-Jul 23 The full moon activates your work and home zones so expect professional and personal dramas. Be patient with colleagues and loved ones.

LEO Jul 24-Aug 23 You’re restless for adventure and excitement but don’t be disappointed if a holiday or weekend escape is delayed. Getting your point across to others will be difficult, so be patient.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 The full moon activates your money zones so resist the urge to splurge on expensive things. A conservative approach to finances is the sensible way to go.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 Relationships will be difficult, and you may feel there’s a gulf between you and others. Concentrate on individual projects and leave connections for another time.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 Get ready for full moon madness to disrupt your well-planned weekend. Scorpio mood swings and emotional dramas are likely, as you attempt to control or coerce others.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 The fiery full moon falls in your drama zone so expect plenty of ups and downs, especially with children, teenagers or friends. Patience – not one of your virtues – is the key.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 The full moon lights up your home zone so prepare for domestic dramas and family fiascos. Aim to get the balance right between your personal and professional responsibilities.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 Connecting with others will be a hit-and-miss affair, as the full moon hooks up with Uranus in your communication zone. Don’t blame others for the mistakes you have made.

PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 It’s not a good weekend to hit the shops. You’re inclined to go on a comfort shopping spree where you buy things for purely emotional reasons. Try to be more disciplined.

SURF REPORT with Steve Harris from Suburban Surf

This weekend should see waves up to the three-foot mark on the open beaches. Friday will be the pick day with a little more size in the easterly swell. However, it will be inconsistent with N/NW winds early swinging to fresh north-easterlies later. Saturday will see waves around the two-foot mark still on a small easterly swell with northerly winds tending N/NE throughout the day. Sunday will be smaller with a decrease in the swell and the winds will be swinging southerly and onshore. Friday and Saturday are looking like the best days for waves so check the pocket down to the S bends at Kawana, Yaroomba or the northern end of Sunshine. On Sunday check the open beaches for more swell but it will be onshore. Get in early, find a high-tide bank in the protected corners and good surfing.

FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: With the rising temperatures will come the mangrove jack, flathead and summer species with reports of larger flathead caught in the Maroochy and Mooloolah rivers, using plastics and whitebait or baby blue pilchards on small ganged hooks. Flathead over 75 centimetres must be released as they are usually females. SURF: As the water is so clear, whiting and bream can be seen in the close-in gutters. Plenty of bait schools mean the bigger species are a bit fickle as they are so well fed. Try shiny chrome lures retrieved fast to get their attention. OFFSHORE: Plenty of bait means the tuna are very active in close to the coastline. Water temperatures are around 20 degrees. The lead-up to the next full moon should bring on the bigger catches of snapper, sweetlip, pearl perch with a few coral trout the bonus in the last week. FRESHWATER: Head inland to Somerset and Borumba dams for huge catches of red claw caught in opera house traps, four traps per person allowed. There are bonus catches of yellow belly at most dams.
