here are few people these days who aren’t touched by breast cancer, and while many women will never be diagnosed, most of us have a friend who has battled the disease, a loved one who is enduring treatment, a relative who has died too young. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a time when the pink ribbons come out and we are reminded of the toll that breast cancer takes on our community. While the disease is being better understood and managed (the survival rates, I discovered, are heartening), it’s important that all women remain vigilant and practise appropriate breast care. We all know we should check our breasts – how many of us do it regularly? This week MWP has dedicated our cover story to this important public health issue. I hope our readers will find it informative.
] In agenda, on page 20, this week we are just grazing the surface of a complex issue – the US economy. In the midst of election madness, there are signs that things could be looking up for Americans, and it’s all down to confidence. Are US consumers just faking it till they make it, or is the fiscal situation over there really turning around? It may be far too early to tell, but no doubt the world’s economists will be closely watching what happens next. There is a fantastic story in health and beauty about a straw that is helping to save lives. Want to make the world a better place? Buy a straw, I say. Find out how on page 30. To lighten the mood I would encourage you to head to page 32, and read Dr Plonk’s column. Our favourite wine-imbibing medic has been sorting through his instruments and there’s not a stethoscope in sight.

BUSY MONTH FOR LIZ B Af After nearly two decades, Elizabeth Hurley still finds herself dressed in pink in October to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month. B She’s been the face of the Estée Lauder Company’s breast-cancer awareness and fundraising efforts for 18 years. “This is a part of my life,” Hurley says. “I look forward to the month. Over the years, my commitment has become more significant.” The calendar is marked off for the entire month, the actress says, and she makes no other plans, although she’s hoping to squeeze in a diner breakfast on this trip to New York City. b Hurley, 47, was at the Empire State Building last week w wearing a plunge V-neck, gathered-waist Issa jersey dress to flip the switch to turn the lights pink. She did it two ye years ago with Evelyn Lauder, who died last November.

WORDS Jemma Pearson
t is believed that breast cancer is one of the oldest known forms of cancerous tumours. Ancient documents describe the disease, and it is perhaps due to the fact that it is one of the most visible cancers that it has been so well documented. History is littered with instances of women who have battled and succumbed to the disease but it was not until the 1800s, probably due to a dramatic improvement in the human mortality rate, that it became more common. There is evidence linking breastfeeding to a lower risk of getting breast cancer and it is thought that the low incidence of the disease in previous generations may be due to the fact that those women had a lot more children. So is the disease on the rise, or are we just getting better at detecting it? According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, there are lifestyle factors that can increase the risk of developing the disease, such as obesity, excessive alcohol consumption,

Breast cancer is not a female-only disease. While breast cancer in males is rare (it accounts for less than one per cent of all breast cancers), there are still men fighting the disease. And yet there is very little information available to men. Before the 20th century, breast cancer in women was feared and rarely discussed. The Breast Cancer Network Australia advises men to talk openly about the disease, so that male breast cancer too can become better understood. There is not a lot of information for men fighting the disease and no face-to-face support groups for Australian men with breast cancer. There are organisations that can help, though. For a list, head to www.bcna.org.au and click on the link ‘About breast cancer’ and then ‘Male breast cancer’.

What is pink ribbon all about? Monday, October 22 is Pink Ribbon Day. An initiative run by the Cancer Council, Pink Ribbon Day helps raise awareness of breast cancer, as well as funds, in support of Australian women affected by this disease. You can get involved by selling merchandise, holding a fundraising event, volunteering or simply donating. Head to pinkribbonday.com.au to find out more. The Pink Ribbon Breakfast is an initiative of the National Breast Cancer Foundation and
is another way individuals or businesses can help raise funds for breast cancer research. You can get involved by hosting a breakfast or morning tea at home, in your office or in a cafe. Over the more than 10 years it has been running, the breakfast events have raised millions of dollars for research. For more go to nbcf.org.au and click on the Pink Ribbon link.
MWP spoke with Dr Julie Thompson, GP and clinical adviser to Breast Cancer Network Australia, about the importance of self-examinations.
Q. We all know we should conduct breast
and an inactive lifestyle. These factors may be contributing to an increase in breast cancer among Australian women. And while we may be hearing at least anecdotally of more women being diagnosed with breast cancer, the good news is that the number of women surviving it has also increased over the past 30 years. According to the Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) this year an estimated 14,610 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. However, most will survive the disease. “Between 1982 and 1987, 72 per cent of women diagnosed with breast cancer were expected to survive more than five years,” the BCNA reported last month. “This increased to 90 per cent of women diagnosed in 2010. In 2010, 83 per cent of women were still living more than 10 years after their diagnosis, compared with 64 per cent in the late 1980s and early 1990s.”
self-examinations, but how do we do that? A. What we encourage is for women to be ‘breast aware’. That means women should become familiar with the look and feel of their own breasts. Look in the mirror when undressed for a shower and note if there is any change to the nipple or skin or shape of the breast. Feel your breasts when under the shower and note if there is any new lump or thickening or any specific area that is tender to the touch. Most women have a texture or some lumpiness when they feel their breast tissue. What we want is for women to become familiar [with what is normal]. If something changes see your GP. Q. Where do we go if we find anything unusual about our breasts? A. The GP is the first port of call. Your GP will take a history and examine your breasts and order appropriate tests. For women over 35 years of age this will be a mammogram and possibly a breast ultrasound. For women less than 35 years of age, a breast ultrasound is usually the first imaging ordered and a mammogram may be added if indicated. Q. What will the GP do if cancer is suspected? A. If the clinical examination and the mammogram and ultrasound suggest the lump
may be cancer, a biopsy of the suspicious area will be organised. This will usually be done in consultation with the breast surgeon. The biopsy is usually done under ultrasound guidance to ensure the suspicious area is accurately sampled. Results are usually available within 48 hours. Q. What are some other causes of lumps? A. The other common causes of breast lumps are: a prominent area of normal breast tissue; a cyst, which is a local collection of fluid and may be painful if large, and if causing pain may be aspirated to relieve symptoms; fibroadenoma, which is an overgrowth of normal breast tissue, and is solid rather than cystic. The combination of a clinical examination plus mammogram and ultrasound is very accurate in determining whether something is a cyst or solid. Solid lumps may be biopsied to confirm they are benign. Q. Any other important messages for the women of the Sunshine Coast? A. If you detect a change in your breast, either the look or feel, see your local GP. Nine out of 10 lumps will be benign. Should the lump be cancer, the earlier it is found and treated the better your [chances of] survival. For women with early breast cancer the survival rates are now 90 per cent. Do not delay seeking help because you are frightened the lump may be cancer. Early detection saves lives. continued over >

On the road again The National Research Roadshows are conducted by the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) and offer the Australian public the chance to get a glimpse into breast cancer research. Last month the roadshow was in Hobart were NBCF’s director of research investment Dr Alison Butt discussed the organisation’s research initiative, Register4, which is an online community of people interested in participating in breast cancer research. Launched in October 2010, the community has nearly 30,000 members. Anybody aged over 18 years, male or female, with or without breast cancer who is keen to help can join at www.register4.org.au. This month the roadshow will be in Canberra, where NBCF CEO Carole Renouf will discuss how NBCF is using donations to advance understanding of the disease. She will be joined by NBCF-funded researcher Dr Anneke Blackburn, who will talk about the latest developments in her research into drugs that kill breast cancer cells by cutting off their energy supply.

WHO Shine Community Care WHAT Fundraising dinner and auction WHERE 4th Floor Restaurant, Mooloolaba Shine Community Care is a local community initiative of C3 Church Kawana Waters. Run by volunteers and with no paid staff, Shine is currently helping 60 families through personal crises such as violence, poverty or homelessness – often families who are unable to find assistance though existing agencies and are left with little hope. Guests were entertained by local musician Michael Fuhrman-Luck and bought auction items to help raise funds for the initiative – Shine does not receive any government funding and depends on donations from the community to continue its work.

GET DRESSED FOR CHARITY
aleny Dairies is inviting local brides to trash their wedding dresses to help kids in need. The local dairy will attempt to set a world record on October 21 for the number of brides who to take part in this increasingly popular post-wedding tradition. The farm will provide a photographic backdrop of farm animals, farm equipment, scenic vistas or even mud for brides who want to take part to help raise funds for Sunny Kids charity. Kay Hollyoak from Maleny Dairies says brides can choose how far they go, with options as simple as posing for a picture in front of a scenic view, to more daring feats such as rolling around in mud. “Trashing your wedding dress is getting more and more popular and we wanted to get people together and have fun and help others,” says Hollyoak.
Each bride receives a professional photograph of her efforts, with family and husbands welcome to take their own photos on the day. The event will raise funds for SunnyKids, to help it brighten the lives of underprivileged kids. Entry is $60 per bride, with a 70-metre waterslide available on the day for brides’ and families’ entertainment. The event will be held at Maleny Dairies’ McCarthy Road property. Register at malenydairies.com. Maleny Dairies is a local success story. With many small dairies bowing to tough competition from large supermarket operations, Maleny Dairies uses the services of at least six local farms, while the Maleny Dairies brand has enjoyed a significant sales boost in the past year. “We’ve had the farm for 60 years and we’ve bottled milk for 10 years and it keeps getting bigger,” says Hollyoak.
The Queensland Air Museum will feature one of the Australian Defence Force’s most iconic pieces of aviation, a retired F-111 fighter jet. The Federal Government has announced the preferred recipients to lend six of the fighter jets to across the country, and the only chance for aviation fanatics to see one in Queensland is at the QAM in Caloundra from early 2013. Member for Caloundra Mark McArdle says this is a boost for local tourism. “This is a massive win for the QAM and its dedicated hardworking volunteers who have rallied hard to secure the fighter jet,” McArdle says. “Not only will this help preserve a significant part of Australia’s military heritage, but this will provide a major boost to our local tourism industry.” F-111 fighter jets used to perform the spectacular dump and burn at many exhibitions, including Brisbane’s Riverfire, until the RAAF retired them in 2010 after nearly 40 years of service.
ON THE SCENE The Sunshine Coast Council Events Network (scene) will host local event management expert Liz Rivers at the final educational workshop for 2012. The workshop is at 1.30pm, Thursday, October 18 at the Sunshine Coast TAFE Mooloolaba Campus.

Former prime minister John Howard says the terrorists responsible for the 2002 Bali bombings have failed to drive a wedge between Australia and Indonesia. Bombs detonated at two nightclubs in the tourist area of Kuta in Bali on October 12, 2002, killed 202 people, including 88 Australians, and injured many others. Howard was prime minister when the attacks occurred. “Those mindless terrorists responsible carried out an act of hatred against the way of life that we hold dear,” Howard said at a 10th anniversary memorial in Darwin. “I’m sure that one of the things they wanted to do was to push Australia and Indonesia further apart. One of the things we can do is say, if that was one of their goals, they failed completely.” He said the co-operation that arose following the Bali attacks began a new period of intimacy between Australia and Indonesia.

S IGNS OF REC OVERY
I N U S E C O NO MY PREVIEW The US economy still faces a long road to recovery, but there are signs of confidence returning, thanks to consumer spending on two key purchases – cars and homes.
he US economy is looking more resilient, thanks in part to encouraging signs for the two most expensive purchases most Americans make: cars and homes. Cheap loans and a bounty of fuel-efficient models enticed people to buy new vehicles at a brisk pace last month. And the nation enjoyed another year-over-year surge in home prices in August – a sign that the housing industry is making a sustained comeback. Both trends reflect rising confidence in the economy – more families are replacing ageing cars and rising home prices are leading more would-be buyers to conclude that a home is a good investment. Two surveys last week also reported improving consumer confidence. The apparent progress could benefit President Barack Obama, who faced off with Mitt Romney last week in an economy-focused debate just five weeks ahead of the election. After the debate Obama went on the attack at big rallies in Colorado and Wisconsin and was energetic, combative and concise, the opposite of the tired and long-winded
candidate who was decisively beaten by Romney last Wednesday. The president beseeched voters not to be duped by the suave debater seen by 67 million television viewers, but to focus on the “real Mitt Romney” who, he said, promised tax cuts for the rich and cared little for teachers.
The steady rise in home prices may also be affecting voter perceptions of the economy But the president still has plenty of work to do – despite the brightening auto and housing industries, the broader US economy is struggling. It grew at a meagre 1.3 per cent annual rate in the April-June quarter. Most economists foresee little strengthening for the rest of the year. Hiring remains too sluggish to reduce high unemployment, which is at 7.8 per cent. The
manufacturing sector is struggling to grow consistently. Workers’ pay is lagging inflation. A dismal European economy has cut demand for US exports and the economy remains at risk of falling off a ‘fiscal cliff’ early next year. That’s when tax increases and deep spending cuts take effect unless Congress reaches a budget deal. If those measures take effect, the economy could fall into recession. Yet many Americans appear to be looking past the economy’s troubles. Surveys by the private Conference Board and the University of Michigan show while consumers are anxious about current conditions, they’re more optimistic about the future. That helps explain why Americans are expected to step up spending during this year’s holiday shopping season (in November and December). The National Retail Federation, the largest retail trade group, predicts sales will rise 4.1 per cent. That’s less than in each of the past two years but

more than the average growth over the past 10. And it extends a growth trend that began after holiday sales sank 4.4 per cent in 2008 in the midst of the recession. Increased consumer confidence is also a factor in this year’s auto sales gains. Last week, auto makers reported solid increases in September. Total sales for the month are expected to exceed 1.1 million vehicles, up 11 per cent from September 2011. Analysts expect sales to total about 14.3 million this year, up from 12.8 million last year. Sales peaked at 17 million in 2005 before hitting a 30-year low of 10.4 million during the recession in 2009. Auto purchases have been robust in part because people are replacing cars they kept during the recession. The average age of vehicles on US roads is nearly 11 years. Bargain loan rates are also fuelling sales. Some banks and credit unions are offering two per cent financing to car buyers with good credit. Rates from some auto makers’ finance companies are even lower. No doubt the politicians will be talking about it. Obama has previously boasted that the bailout of General Motors and

Chrysler helped save more than a million jobs. GM and Chrysler have since returned to profitability and hired thousands. Detroit’s auto makers build most of their cars in the Midwest, including Ohio, which is an election battleground state. Romney has countered that the auto companies should have gone through bankruptcy with private funding and been allowed to recover with government-backed private loans. The steady rise in home prices may also be affecting voter perceptions of the economy. The price increases coincide with higher sales fuelled by record-low mortgage rates. The gains could embolden people who had been spooked by their shrunken home values or are wary of selling or investing in a home. A gauge of prices calculated by CoreLogic, a private data provider, jumped 4.6 per cent in August compared with August 2011. It was the sharpest year-over-year gain in more than six years. Other home-price measures have also risen. The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller index rose in July compared with a year ago, a second straight increase. And an index compiled by a federal
housing regulator has reported annual increases. Only 20 large cities out of 100 that CoreLogic tracked showed declines in the 12 months that ended in August. That compared with 26 in July. Home prices are still 30 per cent below their peak in June 2006, according to Case-Shiller. That was the height of the housing boom. “The housing market’s gains are increasingly geographically diverse, with only six states continuing to show declining prices,” says Mark Fleming, chief economist for CoreLogic. The six states with price declines are Kentucky, Connecticut, Alabama, New Jersey, Illinois and Rhode Island. The auto and housing industries are benefiting from the historically low interest rates engineered by the Federal Reserve. The Fed last month launched a mortgage-bond buying program to try to drive down mortgage rates further. The average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is already a record-low 3.4 per cent. Since 2008, the Fed bought more than $US2 trillion in Treasury’s and mortgage bonds to try to drive down long-term rates. Besides lower mortgage rates, lower long-term rates have led to cheaper auto loans. Joseph LaVorgna, chief US economist at Deutsche Bank, says housing and auto manufacturing are providing critical support for a still sub-par economy. And he pointed to a connection between the two: rising home prices make home owners feel more secure and more willing to buy expensive items such as cars. “Housing is a lifeline,” LaVorgna says. “We would be a lot worse off without it.” AAP

hat a pleasant surprise for borrowers. The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) brought forward Christmas with a 25-basis point rate cut, and if you listen to some market analysts we could see an RBA rate of 2.5 per cent. On the face of it, this looks a little aggressive and as usual timing details are light on. So, what does the RBA want and what can we expect from investments when rates start to fall? To answer the first question, the RBA recognises that the Australian economy may not be as robust as first thought and can see the mining investment boom coming to an end earlier than first anticipated. To this end, by lowering rates it offers some relief to businesses and homes carrying debt, which the RBA hopes will translate to increased spending on consumables, both goods and services. They want you to spread the Christmas cheer. Also, a falling Australian dollar would be appreciated. What I’ll be watching over the coming months is whether the interest rate cuts result in increased spending or whether mortgagees continue to pay down debt. I suspect a little of both. The drain, however, will be felt by retirees sitting in cash. In relation to growth assets such as property and shares, I suspect an increase in capital value. From a high-level point of view, in relation to property, if banks open the vaults to borrowers we’ll see an improvement in the market as the equation between renting and borrowing improves in favour of buying. I wouldn’t expect a strong run in prices as demographics are not strongly in our favour and banks will still be careful to whom they lend. For equity markets, the rate cuts widen the gap between incomepaying stocks and cash. Those
companies that have strong balance sheets and cash flow should maintain their dividends, which should tempt investors back to the market. More directly, falling mortgage rates should assist with mortgage stress, allow banks to clip the ticket on the way through by passing on 20 not 25 basis points but still lower the interest rate they pay to depositors. Additionally, a falling Australian dollar results in our big miners increasing margins, as commodities are priced in US dollars.

EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT THE HUB People are starting to grasp the magnitude of what is coming and want to find out more
he Sunshine Coast is quickly getting behind the new Oceanside at Kawana identity amid increasing awareness of Stockland’s plans for the region, according to the developer. The new name for the $5 billion central Kawana area was unveiled four weeks ago, together with more details of the proposed 17-hectare regional Health Hub. Since then business and property groups have moved quickly to adopt the Oceanside identity, which includes Stockland’s existing Birtinya residential community. Birtinya at Oceanside is positioned to provide new housing options for anyone planning to work at either the public or private hospitals or the associated Health Hub. Several health industry professionals have already built homes at Birtinya and more are expected to move into the community as Oceanside comes to life. Stockland regional manager David Laner believes awareness of the massive investment planned for Oceanside has increased significantly over the past four weeks.
“We have seen more inquiry at our Birtinya community since the announcement, especially from buyers such as international doctors and other health workers,” he says. “People are starting to grasp the magnitude of what is coming and want to find out more about the opportunities Oceanside presents. The perfect place to start is our Birtinya at Oceanside Sales and Information Centre, where visitors can see a huge plan of the entire area. “There is also a dedicated website at www.oceansidekawana.com.au that has more information about the Health Hub and all the other components planned for this new destination.’’ Birtinya at Oceanside is on the shores of Lake Kawana and offers a range of waterfront home sites from 391 to 962 square metres and priced from $362,950. Home and land packages at the community start at $648,675. Homes in Birtinya are within easy walking and cycling distance of the Health Hub, and the future Oceanside town centre and transit precincts.
LIFE ON THE LAKE Developers are reporting waterfront residential addresses in Kawana are now being highly sought following announcements of the major projects set to commence in the area. Edgewater Lake Kawana opened in August 2012 and motivated local and interstate buyers are quickly buying prime investments. Edgewater Lake Kawana offers a selection of contemporary and luxuriously styled apartments and penthouses. These luxury apartments have already proved popular with just 10 penthouses remaining to be sold. Andrew O’Connor, who is the development manager for Avara Property Group, reports he has received a strong endorsement from buyers of Edgewater Lake Kawana following its August opening. “We were overwhelmed with the positive response from buyers when they inspected their new apartments,” he says. The location of Edgewater Lake Kawana – with Stockland’s Oceanside development right on its doorstep – makes it a desirable investment. Oceanside Kawana’s vision is to have homes, shopping, business and services in the one location. Mayor Mark Jamieson has endorsed the economic development of the area. “Job creation in Kawana will be one of the area’s greatest strengths and with that comes a demand for all types of residential housing. Projects like this are a welcome boost to our community.”

he weather is warming up, but next time you reach for your drink bottle consider there are a billion people worldwide who don’t have access to clean water. Rob Shackleford from LifeStraw Australia says the humanitarian need caused by waterborne diseases is bigger than malaria. “Every day 6000 people die as a result, and the majority are children,” he says. LifeStraw is a small but effective water filtration device designed to prevent common waterborne diseases, and can filter 1000 litres of drinking water (roughly 18 months’ worth for an adult). The larger LifeStraw Family unit can be installed in villages and households and provides clean, filtered water for a family of five for three years. LifeStraw’s overseas manufacturer distributes to the United Nations, humanitarian groups and military units worldwide, but Shackleford’s Woombye-based organisation is the only one that provides the devices to the public. This means locals can purchase a LifeStraw for their own use when camping or travelling overseas, “but at the same time raise money for humanitarian aid”, he says. They can also donate a unit. LifeStraw Australia has established a fundraising partnership with The Rotary Club of Buderim, and if you donate a LifeStraw ($30) or LifeStraw Family unit ($90) via the club LifeStraw Australia will match the donation. Shackleford says the cost is relatively low considering the filter’s capacity equates to a pallet of bottled drinking water, which would
One straw can filter 1000 litres be much more expensive and difficult to transport. Twelve-hundred family units were donated during last year’s floods in Thailand and Shackleford says one unit was supplying filtered water to at least 30 people. “For them it’s a lifesaving thing – a family has clean drinking water, something we take for granted.” Local businessman Mark Stitt, the director of Suncoast Fitness, became involved with the LifeStraw Australia project several years ago and next week will deliver 150 family units to Fiji, which has an ongoing water contamination problem. “The Rotary Club of Nadi has helped us identify 20 villages that have a high need of cleaner water,” Stitt says. “Most of these villages are getting water from an estuary, which is also the rubbish tip and where animals go when they die.” While LifeStraws have been heavily used in Africa, Stitt is keen to see more Australians get behind the project, to raise awareness of the need for clean water in our neighbouring countries. “Fiji, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea,” Stitt says. “Many of us go to these amazing resorts and we’re not aware of the humanitarian crisis in the country.” For more information or to donate a LifeStraw visit lifestraw.com.au.

Denise Donati is the director of Fertility Solutions
The infertility puzzle As I discussed a few weeks ago, female age is the most common reason our patients are having difficulty conceiving. However, there are a number of other factors that can lead to fertility issues. Besides age, other critical impacts on fertility include weight, followed by lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol intake, stress or pre-existing medical conditions. Male infertility can be linked to past medical conditions such as cancer treatments, genetic reasons or lifestyle factors, with men exposed to a lot of heat in their job (such as working in a mine, near a furnace or even taxi and truck driving) having a higher chance of a lower sperm count.
The puzzle of treating a couple’s infertility involves looking at both medical histories and conducting routine check-ups. Manageable impacts on fertility such as smoking, alcohol consumption, weight or diet are then addressed to make treatment more effective. People should look for a clinic that takes an active, holistic approach to preparing couples for a healthy pregnancy – one that has formed alliances with local natural health practitioners who have proven experience in their field for fertility health. These could include a yoga instructor, naturopath, dietitian, Chinese herbalist, acupuncturist, personal trainer, life coach, chiropractor or physiotherapist.

In a nutshell, the most important aspect of this model is the fact that at least 50 per cent of your plate or meal serve is to be composed of fresh, non-fat and low-carbohydrate salad or vegetable items. All vegetables that are not potato, sweet potato or corn are
considered ‘free’ vegies and can be eaten in unlimited quantities. For an effective and simple spring detox, simply ensure every lunch and dinner you prepare follows this model. The aforementioned starchy vegies can make up to a quarter of your meal or plate, and a lean, non-fat protein (lean meat, skinless chicken, fish or eggs) is the final quarter. Simple!

GO, GO GADGETS 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.
oys love toys! Recently Mrs Plonk asked me (politely) to clean up the junk. Not the stuff in the trunk but my wine-related and ever-soessential toys I use to enhance my wine experience. They were strategically left around the house to facilitate the enjoyment of the vinous process. I couldn’t really see the problem in leaving a champagne de-corker in with the first aid kit. Everybody knows more people are killed and maimed in the world from wayward flying champagne corks than die of bee stings. Or is it shark bites? I must say that if there is a wine gadget, I have bought it, been given it for a gift or asked to review it. My favourite is Mr Corky. He sounds like an inebriated Stephen King clown that smells of cough medicine, but he is my mate. He’s basically a gas-filled device with a hollow spear that pierces the cork. The downward pressure releases the gas and it lifts up
the cork with no damage, especially to old corks. Mrs Plonk found this one near my copy of 50 Shades! Never underestimate the ingenuity of mankind and his ability to adapt products into other uses. One very late night, my mate Hamish and I created the world’s first sparkling sauvignon blanc. Thanks Mr Soda Stream. About two years later I interviewed this Kiwi winemaker and he proudly reached into his bag of tricks and said, “I have a world first.” His eyes glistened with the excitement of a schoolboy who had just discovered Friday late-night world movies. He beat his chest and said, “Here, have a crack at this, the world’s first sparkling sauvignon blanc!” Bloody Kiwis, next they will be claiming pavlovas and lamingtons! Wine preservation gadgets abound. The trick is to remove oxygen exposure to opened wine to reduce the spoiling effect. This can range from devices that dispense inert gasses like nitrogen to displace
air, to wine-sealing bags that take up space in the bottle. A cheap gadget is the vacuum pumping devices that remove the air Austin Powers style. Maybe it was this one she found near Mr Grey? Unfortunately part of the house does look like the crystal section of Myer. One can never have enough stemware or decanters. There is a war of attrition as the breakage rate is proportional to the number of bottles drank or the number of relatives in
the house. Mrs Plonk has curtailed the good stuff to just the dining ed room and enforced resort pool rules with me elsewhere. Next I will be drinkingg out of recycled wastee oard water and cardboard cups. But at the end est of the day the best wine is the wine in front of us.
Dr Plonk is drinking: Champagne – good old Moët non-vintage. Sold it at the school fate and the mums went nuts. White – David Franz Long Gully Barossa semillon. Enjoy on that warm summer’s day with fish and chups. Red – Mt Rosa Reserve Pinot Noir. Bloody Kiwis, it’s another
ripper. If they didn’t have good wine and food, I don’t think that I would ever visit them. Or the incredible scenery, and they are really friendly… Stop!

onâ€™t get Rohan Anderson started on shows like Junior MasterChef. â€œI think itâ€™s horrible to make food so complicated â€Ś To have kids cooking gourmet food like that for the sake of its presentation and wanting them to be mini chefs â€“ itâ€™s taking the fun out of food for life.â€? Regular readers of Andersonâ€™s blog, Whole Larder Love, will be familiar with his strong opinions, and now this modern-day huntergatherer has turned his blog into a book with the same name. He wants people to realise where their food comes from. â€œOnly a short time ago, growing vegetables was part of everyday life â€“ and it wasnâ€™t for environmental but for financial reasons,â€? he says. â€œAs weâ€™ve become more â€˜effluentâ€™ as Kath and Kim say and people have the convenience of going to buy food that is mass produced, thereâ€™s no thought to it.â€? In Whole Larder Love: Grow, Gather, Hunt, Cook, the 36-year-old shares his easy-to-follow tips and instructions on how to set up a home garden, tips for hunting and fishing, how to identify and collect edible food grown in the wild, and all the tools and resources to use. And there is a trove of rustic recipes, including yabby pasta, along with field-foraged ragu and blood plum jam. He says heâ€™s not a chef, but
Quality baked bread, pastries &
a family cook. Heâ€™s got four young girls to feed and while he goes to the supermarket â€“ for the basics such as sugar, tea, salt and flour â€“ he says after that itâ€™s possible to raise enough of the fresh stuff ourselves to keep a family fed most of the year. Anderson says people need to make more of an effort in becoming self-sufficient. For example, he asks permission from local farmers to shoot rabbits, which he says the farmers are usually more than happy to oblige. He can then fill his freezer with the meat. â€œThe gourmet lifestyle doesnâ€™t interest me at all â€“ I just want local produce,â€? Anderson says. Whole Larder Love, $29.99, is published by Viking.

MAKE/MODEL VW AMAROK
VW TARGETS TOYOTA’S GOLIATH WORDS Peter Atkinson
OLIATH, meet David. He’s new around here, but he seems very keen to make a big impression. Hey, I know you rule the roost – and have done for as long as anyone can remember. But you might want to keep an eye on this guy. Goliath, of course, is the Toyota HiLux – the undisputed king of utes. David, as it turns out, is something of an upstart. The new VW Amarok. From Germany, of all places. The first Volkswagen ute we’ve seen here. First German ute, for that matter. Okay, so the Amarok might be a very long way from toppling the mighty HiLux from its perch. But it’s already throwing a few rocks. Delivery Magazine recently named the Amarok as its Ute of the Year. Hardly enough to have Toyota dealers quaking in their boots, I’ll admit. But the Amarok is an impressive thing and, if history is any guide, those VW folk don’t make a habit of getting into fights they don’t expect to win. The strategy with the Amarok
reminds me of a mate of mine who reckoned the best way to win a fight, particularly if you were outnumbered, was to lay your first and best punch on the biggest guy in the room. If it worked, nobody else would be brave enough to step forward. And so, perhaps with that same ‘death or glory’ motto in mind, Volkswagen has come out swinging at the HiLux – on its home turf, no less. Let’s not forget that the HiLux isn’t just the best-selling ute in Australia, it has, on more than one occasion, been the best-selling vehicle full stop. But this rugged VW has shown its mettle in some pretty testing environments. VW’s advertising campaign

highlights how the Amarok was the support vehicle of choice for its competitors in the brutal Dakar Rally – which VW has made a habit of winning with its fleet of factorybacked Touareg all-wheel-drives. The ute is unlikely to encounter the same conditions here – although Aussie worksites plus the beach or bush bashing most of these utes face on weekends still represent a pretty fair test of what a vehicle can handle. The Amarok is available in four different configurations for Australian buyers – all with a four-door, dual-cab
DETAILS Four-door, five-seat crew-cab utility with two-litre turbo-diesel engine and six-speed manual transmission. TECH STUFF Two-litre, four-cylinder TDI400 turbo-diesel engine produces 120kW@4000rpm, 400Nm@1500rpm. FEATURES Front, side and thorax airbags; Electronic Stability Program, ABS with EBD. Trim levels range from rubber-floor mats in base model to leather, climate-control air-conditioning and electronic windows and mirrors in top-spec Ultimate model. THIRST 7.7l/100km. VERDICT We’re not used to seeing German utes – but that’s about to change. BOTTOM LINE From $33,990 (base model); as tested $58,490.

soft-roaders and all-paw versions of the Golf and Passat. The diesel is a beauty – a two-litre, four-cylinder powerplant producing 120 kilowatts and a hefty 400Nm of torque. Just as importantly, VW claims its 7.7l/100km thirst makes it the most fuel-efficient ute on the Aussie market – which is where it hopes to put the acid on the HiLux. What did impress was the big VW’s assured handling and supple ride. Coupled with the nicely finished, nicely appointed interior, with acceptably low levels of cabin noise, the Amarok capably crosses the tricky divide between work ute and family transport. It also looks the part – its dimensions are imposing and safety is also well catered for with front and passenger plus head-thorax airbags across the range. Electronic Stability Program and Brake Assist are also standard. So can it threaten the HiLux? That might be some way off. The Toyota has an enormous headstart and an astonishing loyalty from its band of admirers. But those buyers would be well-advised to give the Amarok a second look. And Goliath might want to keep an eye on the Amarok, too.

Cheese-powered car breaks speed record According to Cars Guide, US university students have built a vehicle that runs on biofuel they produced by combining yeast with cheesemaking waste. The students then entered the famed World of Speed at Bonneville Salt Flats, and set a land speed record of 64.4mph (103.6km/h) for the diesel 1.0-litre two-cylinder class. It’s the first time the class record has been broken by a solely biodiesel car rather than one that runs on a combination of normal diesel and biodiesel.

GROWTH PREVIEW Buying and holding – it’s the way to make money out of real estate, right? But what does it all mean? MPP has the lowdown.
t’s what our parents tried to teach us about investment. Buy a property, pay it off, hold on to it and with patience you’ll see it appreciate in value over time. This is capital growth, and it is the basis of many an investment strategy. Capital growth and a property’s yield (which is also known as a return on investment or cash flow) are the two key elements property investors take into consideration when purchasing a new property. For anyone who has lived in Sydney or Melbourne at any time in the past few decades, you may have seen times when house prices seemed to double in a relatively short amount of time. While home investors and owners who’ve experienced this kind of growth can count themselves lucky, these instances may have set up an unrealistic expectation of a property, any property, doubling in value every seven or so years. Historically, real estate experiences growth over the long term, but how long that term is, and how big that growth will be, depends on what you buy and where.
All good investors watch what interest rates are doing. A drop in the official cash rate could entice buyers into the market, thus putting upward pressure on prices
Buying a property for capital growth is different to buying for income – though some properties produce both a decent income and capital growth – so if you are buying for growth, the aim is to invest in the future, rather than seeking an income now. Where investors can go wrong, whether buying for growth or for income, is treating an investment like purchasing a family home and buying from the heart. The key to successfully buying a property for capital growth is to do your research and be patient. Property investing is a long-term strategy and the value of a home is determined by the market, so if you want to enjoy capital growth, buy astutely in the first place (by thoroughly doing your research). But managing the financial risk is also critical. Some investors come unstuck when two or three years after buying an investment they realise they can’t manage the loan because their financial circumstances have changed. Buying well is just the beginning – holding a property over the long term (despite personal circumstances) is the key. So how do you know if the property you are looking to buy will experience capital growth in the future?

Unless you have a crystal ball, you can never be certain, but wise investors will always look at a number of factors. These are fairly universal. First of all you need to find out what drives property growth. Investigating supply and demand in the area you’re looking to buy is a good place to start. The forces of demand and supply basically translates to the number of people wanting to buy houses versus the availability of houses to buy – the more people wanting to buy property in a particular area, and the lower the availability of housing, the more likely house prices will be driven up. Demand includes the existing population and the new population arriving. Supply covers both existing houses and new houses set to be built. The cost of building new houses will also impact
MY W EEKLYPREVIE W. CO M . AU
on existing house prices – if the cost of building increases this will put upward pressure on prices of existing houses, so keeping an eye on the cost of building materials is also a good idea. All good investors watch what interest rates are doing. This month we’ve just had another drop in the official cash rate and this could entice new buyers into the market, thus putting upward pressure on prices. It’s also important to watch what the banks are doing – if they are offering good deals to lure more customers this could also mean more buyers entering the property market and competing for existing stock. So there isn’t one single factor that will impact capital growth. But closer to home, there are even more factors to take into account. If you are considering buying a particular property with an eye to capital growth take a look around the area the house sits in. Check out the amenities (proximity to the beach, schools and shops mean capital growth is more likely). But capital growth is about future gains, so planned infrastructure is perhaps even more important than existing. Clever investors will buy a property in an area that doesn’t necessarily have much to offer now, but has lots of potential in the future. Planned projects such as new shopping centres, schools and hospitals have the potential to add value to surrounding homes. Is it any wonder property experts are closely watching the Kawana health hub take shape?
Income versus capital growth – which is better and can you have both? Those who invest in cash-flow properties base their choices on the property’s capacity to offer high rental returns. For these investors a regular income is the motivation, but they have to be careful to choose properties that return more than they cost in outgoings such as mortgage repayments, maintenance and rates. Capital growth is all about investing in the future. Properties are chosen based on their likelihood to increase in value over time. Established wisdom says that in general in Australia, properties that produce higher capital growth tend to have lower rental returns. So which one do you choose? It all depends on your purpose for buying and your situation in life. But any property purchase (apart from your own home) should be made with a larger wealth creation plan in mind and never in isolation. Don’t have a plan? Get advice from experts – there are plenty of people on the Coast who can help.

Castle Post was built in the late 1960s – after its original owners were inspired by a European holiday – and was extensively renovated in the mid 2000s by new owner Tom Post
ot a spare $30 million? If you do, you can snap up a replica medieval castle built on the rolling hills of Lexington, Kentucky. Castle Post was built in the late 1960s – after its original owners were inspired by a European holiday – and was extensively renovated in the mid 2000s by new owner Tom Post, an attorney who hosts charity fundraisers there. The renovations cost a little more than first planned, as work was almost completed when the building partially burned down. However, Post repaired the damage and the castle is now also leased as a bed and breakfast for weddings and other special events. Castle Post features 16 stately guest rooms (four in the castle’s turrets), a full ballroom, billiard room, commercial kitchen, tennis court, basketball court and pool. There are an onsite concierge, daily maid service and in-house event co-ordinator. The castle is on 50 acres, but the $30 million asking price also includes an adjacent 175-acre thoroughbred horse farm with two separate residences. Visit realtyglobal.com.

INVESTING IN THE FUTURE
he Coast’s property sector continues to mature and grow, and includes not just residential, but a wide variety of retail, commercial, industrial and other assets. Several years ago the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC), keen to capitalise on and assist with developing further opportunities, established a degree in property and development. “Our aim is always to provide teaching, learning and research that is relevant to the region,” says Professor Mike Hefferan, who is the pro vice-chancellor and professor of property and development at USC. “About 17 per cent of our workforce are employed in areas linked to property in one form or another, and it was therefore important that USC provided a tertiary education base to enhance existing skills and to provide avenues into the sector for school leavers.” The USC property degree is fully accredited by the Australian Property Institute as supplying all the
academic qualifications needed for registration as a valuer. The course also holds a range of certifications across the property sector including property and asset management, property development and facilities management. “The programme particularly integrates key theoretical knowledge with application and case studies and would be attractive to those first entering the property sector, but also those wishing to enhance their skills and job prospects,” Hefferan says. The course is diverse and knowledge fields addressed include valuation, building studies, town planning, economics and law. “It is particularly gratifying to see how well our graduates are being accepted into the workplace,” Hefferan says. “It has been remarkable to note that we have had positions available for graduate employment throughout the last year but have, to date, not had sufficient graduates available to fill all of them.” Enrolments are now available for the first semester 2013 intake.

Maleny retreat has character and charm on four acres
Just a short drive from Maleny on the east side of town, this home is on four acres with no visible neighbours, giving the feeling of living on a larger property. A majestic, 150-year-old Moreton Bay fig tree completes the property’s facade. The executive home includes a feature gable that provides the foyer, kitchen and living areas with additional light and space and acts as a centrepiece that separates the master and guest wings of the home. The galley-style kitchen has been meticulously designed with quality appliances and ample bench space. Adjoining it are informal dining and living spaces, along with an expansive deck accessed via large timber bifold doors. In addition, the formal living and dining space provides an elegant setting for entertaining while a study adjacent
to the foyer looks out to the fig tree. The master suite has a private view to the north, and a large walk-in robe and ensuite. The guest wing features additional bedrooms, both with great views and access to the deck. The lower floor of the property accommodates a hobby and laundry area, wine cellar and double lock-up garage, with more space for covered storage. The old cow bails have been converted to a workshop and gardening shed and are close to the established vegetable gardens and orchard. In addition to 15,000 gallons of water storage, there is a bore, which helps with watering in the winter months. The quality of this home is evident in details such as rosegum timber flooring, ducted air-conditioning and Mary River stone in the entry.

CANCER Jun 22-Jul 23 You may feel pulled in different directions this weekend as career chaos, relationship problems or domestic dramas drain your energy. Resist the urge to retaliate.
LEO Jul 24-Aug 23 Whatever you say may be taken the opposite way. So expect the unexpected, and think carefully before you put your foot in your mouth and – unintentionally – antagonise others.
VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 Money matters are on your mind as you seesaw between feeling pessimistic about your ﬁnances one moment and quietly conﬁdent the next. The real picture is somewhere in between.
LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 You’re feeling insecure but don’t use guilt or manipulation in a close relationship. Open, two-way communication is required, otherwise the partnership will soon be past its prime.
SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 Resist giving in to sudden compulsions that won’t do you any good in the long run. Be honest with yourself, otherwise the only person who’s likely to sabotage your efforts is you.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 Avoid making important decisions, as your emotions are in a state of ﬂux. Instead, it’s time to experiment and extend your circle of friends to include a bohemian new crowd.
CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 Expect some unpredictable moments, as family members or work colleagues vacillate in their feelings towards you. You’re looking for constancy and it’s just not there this weekend.
AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 You’re in the mood to rufﬂe a few feathers, as your restless spirit goes looking for fun and excitement. Be careful who you target though – some people will deﬁnitely not be amused.
PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 Expect to change your mind several times this weekend, as you run the gamut of emotions from A to Z. Avoid making important decisions – or letting other people make them for you.

GEMINI May 22-Jun 21 If you want to improve a close relationship, you’ll have to be proactive about ﬁxing problems. Friends and ﬁnances are a messy mix this weekend so try to keep the two separate.
TAURUS Apr 21-May 21 Saturday is for socialising, whereas Sunday is terriﬁc for tackling chores you have been putting in the too-hard basket. Avoid the temptation to get drawn into other people’s power trips.

SURF REPORT with Steve Harris from Suburban Surf
Well surfers hopefully we could see some well-overdue swell by the weekend. A low pressure system if its remains on track will move off the southern NSW coast late Thursday into early Friday and bring with it strong S/SE winds through the Tasman Sea, generating a large southerly swell. Thursday’s forecast is for an inconsistent SE groundswell bringing only up to one-foot waves on the points. Winds will be N/NW tending W/NW. Friday’s swell will be even smaller and winds will be fresh westerlies swinging W/SW. Saturday shows a new S/SE swell building to two foot on the points by the arvo. Winds will be moderate SW early turning fresh S/SE. Sunday’s model is showing a strong SW groundswell into Monday with W/SW winds. Finally we could see some great beach breaks and with high tide around sunrise get in early. Good surfing.
FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World
ESTUARY: There is quality whiting at the Bli Bli oyster leases with yabbies and worms the best bait. Some oversized flathead are being caught and released at the Maroochy Bar using slow-moving plastics. Pumicestone Passage is returning whiting to 700 grams with soldier crabs best. SURF: Deep gutters from Mudjimba to Pincushion are holding bait with tailor chopping on the surface, and bream and flathead feasting on the leftovers. Baby blue pilchards and whitebait are returning better quality. OFFSHORE: Pear perch and snapper are being taken from Wide Caloundra to the bottom of the Barwon Banks on a variety of plastics and baits. Whales moving south are putting on a great show. FRESHWATER: Some nice bass are taking surface lures at Maroochy North Arm, and appear to be moving back upstream. Upper reaches of the Noosa are also returning small bass with narrows to Harry’s Hut ideal for kayakers.
