‘m still in denial about Christmas. It’s far too early to be thinking about baubles and tinsel, Christmas lists and shopping queues. And who can blame me, I say – I was still in jeans and a jumper when I noticed all these Christmas decorations pop up in a certain hardware store that shall remain nameless. I don’t care what anyone says, it is far too soon to be contemplating such things in September. I think it’s led me to be a bit bah humbug about it, which is a shame really, because the festive season is almost upon us, and I can’t avoid it any longer. So how much will you spend on Christmas presents and food this year? If you’re anything like the average Australian, it will be quite a lot. In fact, as Jarna Baudinette discovered when researching this week’s cover story, the average Australian household forks out more

than $1000 on gifts, food and decorations. That’s more than the French, the Chinese and the home of consumer culture, the US. Turn over the page for more about spending habits in the silly season. In Agenda this week I have learned some interesting things about the Mayan calendar. The calendar is that thing we’ve been hearing about over the past dozen years or so, that supposedly tells us the world will end before we have a chance to bite into the Chrissy ham. The bottom line is – plan your New Year’s party because the world will keep turning into 2013 and beyond. We are debunking a few myths on page 20. And in property I have learned all about house valuations. It’s a timely topic given the state of the market, and I would urge all vendors and would-be buyers to read about it on page 36.

PREVIEW Australians love splashing out on gifts at Christmas time, and this year will be no exception. But studies show one change in our shopping habits emerging: more of us are committed to buying gifts locally – a win-win for all involved. WORDS Jarna Baudinette

T

here are two kinds of people: those who love Christmas shopping and those who dread the mere thought of it. While Christmas decorations started appearing in stores as early as October, tomorrow is the first of December, which means the silly season is officially upon us. If the idea of battling for a car park at Sunshine Plaza and staying up until midnight trying to gift wrap a bicycle makes you feel less than joyous, remember that as well as injecting some festive cheer into our community, the next few weeks are also crucial for our retail industry. For most retailers, Christmas is the busiest time of the year, and a good summer can be vital for annual business turnover. According to the Australian Retailers Association (ARA), Australians are expected to put a whopping $41.2 billion through retail tills between mid November and December 25, and many local retailers are hoping a share of that cash will boost revenues after a lacklustre few years. ARA executive director Russell Zimmerman told AAP this year’s projection was 3.9 per cent higher than

the corresponding period in 2011, when shoppers spent $39.7 billion. “While we by no means expect shoppers to be beating down the doors to go Christmas shopping, especially in the early stages, the figures represent growth which will hear some rings of their tills,” Zimmerman said. He added the ARA was hoping the Reserve Bank of Australia would deliver another interest rate cut next week, which “may give consumers the incentive they need to go out and get some of the Christmas shopping done in early December, as well as the usual late December rush”. The Westpac Melbourne Institute Index of Consumer Sentiment reported national consumer sentiment rose 5.2 per cent in November, which the ARA also hopes will have a positive impact on sales figures. And while many are still feeling fragile about their financial position and will be watching budgets closely over Christmas, another survey by Suncorp – the festively titled Christmas Retail Therapy Report – had good news for local retailers, finding 80 per cent of respondents planned to shop locally this Christmas, either in store or through locally based websites.

Who gets what under the tree? Suncorp Bank’s Christmas Retail Therapy Report, released last Wednesday, found most of the 1004 respondents would be buying presents largely for their children, while 15 per cent of the gift budget was set aside for the woman in their lives, and a [ 8 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ N O VE M B E R 30, 2 0 1 2

corresponding 16 per cent for the man. Eight per cent will spend the most on their mum’s present, but it seems dads are the forgotten ones this Christmas – only one per cent of buyers choose to spoil Dad the most this Christmas. AAP M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW.C OM .A U

GIFTS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

A chain email doing the rounds recently has caught our attention in the MWP office. It urges readers to not only shop locally this Christmas, but to broaden their idea of gifts to include local services. If you’re struggling to find another item to wrap for your friends or relatives, think about the services they need or would appreciate this festive season. Does someone need their lawn mowed, their car serviced or their computer tinkered with? While these aren’t traditional gifts, ring around local providers and organise a gift certificate. Know a young mum struggling to find time for herself? Offer to pay for an appointment with a local hairdresser or massage therapist. Know someone who is struggling with their finances or who always files their tax return late? Speak to a local accountant or financial planner about gifting their professional services for a couple of hours. Or just treat friends and family to a meal at one of our many local restaurants and cafes. Get creative with your gift ideas and try to keep as much money as possible flowing through our local economy.

unshine Coast airport was awarded Australian Major Airport of the Year for the second time in a row at the 2012 Australian Airports Association Annual Convention this month. Airport general manager Peter Pallot says the work put in to develop the airport’s international flight credentials was a major contributor to the award win. “To the best of my knowledge, no regional airport has ever won this award twice in a row,” Pallot says. “This is a fantastic result, reflecting the massive effort airport staff, backed by Sunshine Coast Council, put in during 2012,” he says. The introduction of Air New Zealand flights from Auckland to the Sunshine Coast through the winter played a major part in the Coast airport taking the prize. Sunshine Coast mayor Mark Jamieson says securing the flights for the winter season was a great coup. “Sunshine Coast Airport is intrinsic to our economic sustainability and the last year has seen Peter and his team work hard in improving and expanding services despite difficult conditions in the industry,” Jamieson says. This year the trans-Tasman alliance operated for 12 weeks and injected $14.5 million into the Sunshine Coast economy. The season was so successful Air New Zealand and alliance partner Virgin Australia have signed up to an extended 17-week season in 2013. Jamieson says the extra 3000

seats should increase the economic benefit for the Coast to $20 million. “It justifies our investment into Sunshine Coast Airport’s development of an international airport,” Jamieson says. Sunshine Coast Destination CEO Steve Cooper welcomed the news Air New Zealand and Virgin Australia are extending their services next year. “The return of this direct service with an extended season in 2013 demonstrates the undeniable demand for Kiwis to visit the Sunshine Coast,” Cooper says. About 76,000 New Zealanders travelled to the Coast last financial year, making new Zealand the number one international market for the Coast. While the Coast reaps the economic benefits from New Zealanders visiting the region, there are also benefits for locals who are easily able to access winter ski holidays on the other side of the Tasman, or to connect seamlessly with international flights, particularly to North America.

OPEN SPACE IN CALOUNDRA

he community will have more open space to enjoy following the Sunshine Coast Council’s purchase of 1.6 hectares of land in William Street at Moffat Beach. Division 2 Councillor Tim Dwyer says the site, in a prominent location, is located in a bushland setting and a section of the land will be dedicated as a nature-focussed local park. Another section is expected to be sold to retain residential use of the land, with details to be determined by the council. “This really is a special site as it’s a small pocket of nature in an urbanised environment,” Dwyer says. “The tranquil setting will give locals a peaceful space to relax in and take in the birdlife and natural surrounds.” The council will liaise with the community to ensure the existing natural character and charm of the park is retained. “While council is keen for locals and visitors to access the new park, we need to complete a site safety audit, finalise boundary alignments and construct necessary fencing,” Dwyer says. “Once this is completed we’ll be letting the community know that the site is theirs to access and enjoy.” The council aims to have a range of open space locations across the region to provide diverse experiences for locals and visitors.

Helping hand for ICU patients Patients in Nambour Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit could have shorter hospital stays thanks to Wishlist funding for new rehabilitation equipment. Wishlist provided nearly $22,000 to fund two MOTOmed Ergometers, used by physiotherapists for early rehabilitation in intensive care. Each day in the ICU can result in the loss of another two per cent of muscle mass, leading to profound weakness and a long recovery. Senior physiotherapist Kate McCleary says the new equipment allows bedridden and immobilised patients the chance

for early rehabilitation. “Early rehabilitation in the critical care environment has been shown to facilitate earlier discharge from the ICU and overall hospital length of stay,” McCleary says. “The MOTOmed will allow therapy in or at the bedside to increase their strength and function and will permit the patient to complete intensive, regular exercise without one-toone physiotherapy assistance. “Even patients who are still on a ventilator and those who cannot move their own legs can use the equipment as it attaches to the end of their bed for exercise.”

The last Hot Business Events breakfast for 2012 proved one of the most popular, when Rugby League’s Wayne Bennett took up the microphone at the Mooloolaba Surf Club last week. Bennett was the latest in a string of inspiring speakers, including Max Walker and Steven Bradbury, who have been brought to the Coast by Hot Business Events. While the speakers have all drawn healthy crowds, the Wayne Bennett breakfast became a particularly hot ticket. “We were delighted with the response – [the Bennett event] was sold out in record time and we certainly packed out the surf club,” says Gerry Morris from Hot Business Events. “Wayne was always going to be a huge drawcard and it certainly proved that way.” Bennett is an exceptional businessman and leader, but he’s known as a man of few words. It was quite a coup for the region. “I was out riding one morning and the voice in my head said ‘see if you can get Wayne Bennett’,” Morris tells MWP. “The voice also said ‘it won’t happen’, as in my experience dealing with him he is always too busy and he says no to far more requests than he says yes to. I asked him if he could kick off 2013, but he wasn’t available, so I asked about November and he just said, ‘yeah, OK’.” So what got the usually taciturn super coach talking? “When he started, we all saw the side of Wayne that not many get to see – his funny side,” says

Morris. “Wayne told a couple of great tales and had us all in stitches. But it was his messages on leadership that really struck a chord. He challenged us to be the best we can be and not to worry about things we cannot control. “It’s not about being better than anybody else; it’s about being the best you can be. He told us it was about the quality of our actions and be true to your intent. Be judged by your actions and not your words.” If you missed out on seeing any of the Hot Business Events speakers in 2012, there are more lined up for next year, and Morris says while 2012 featured many sports stars, next year he’s hoping to secure an Academy Awardwinning director, doctor and base jumper Glenn Singleman and “our good friend George Negus is keen to be involved as well”. “Plus we have a few things up our sleeve for a couple of quality evening events – all in all it will be a great 2013.”

MYTH AN D

MAD N

PREVIEW Much has been made of the supposed Mayan prophecy – that December 21, 2012 marks the end of the world as we know it – and even the Maya are over it.

R

elax doomsayers, the Maya people did not really mark their calendar for the end of the world on December 21, 2012. As tourists book hotel rooms in Mexico’s Maya Riviera and Guatemalan resorts ahead of next month’s fateful date, experts are busy debunking the doomsday myth. The apocalyptic prophecy that has inspired authors and filmmakers never appears in the tall T-shaped stone calendar that was carved by the Maya around the year 669 in south-eastern Mexico. In reality, the stone, known as Monument 6, recounts the life and battles of a ruler from that era, experts say. Plus, the last date on the calendar is actually December 23, 2012, not the 21st, and it merely marks the end of a cycle. “The world has been marked by a very peculiar interpretation given by Hollywood, without much knowledge about it,” says Alvaro Pop, an indigenous leader in Guatemala. “In Mayan culture, scholars never were prophets. That’s why there shouldn’t be

D NESS interpretations based on supposed prophecies that don’t exist.” The Hollywood blockbuster 2012 depicted the earth being swallowed by floods, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, but the date in the Mayan calendar merely refers to the end of a cycle, not the end of the world. So no need to build giant arks, because the terrible floods, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions depicted in the film were not prophesied by the Mayas. “The Mayas had a cyclical idea of time. They were not preoccupied with the end of the world,” Mexican archaeologist Jose Romero says. Monument 6 was located in El Tortuguero, an archaeological site that was discovered in 1915. Broken in six pieces, the different fragments are exhibited in US and Mexican museums, including Tabasco’s Carlos Pellicer Camara Anthropology Museum and New York’s Metropolitan Museum. The first study on the stone was published by a German researcher in 1978. Since then, various archaeologists have examined its significance and agree that it refers to the December 23 date. “The last inscription refers to December 23, 2012, but the central theme of Monument 6 is not the date, it’s not the prophecies or the end of the

world. It’s the story of (then ruler) Bahlam Ajaw,” Romero says. The final date represents the end of a cycle in the Mayan long count calendar that began in the year 3114 before Christ. It is the completion of 13 ‘baak t’uunes’, a unit of time equivalent to 144,000 days. “It is not the end of the Mayan long count calendar, which is endless. It’s the beginning of a new cycle, that’s all,” says Mexican historian Erick Velasquez. Though the Maya made prophecies, they looked at events in the near future and were related to day-to-day concerns like rain, droughts, or harvests. The belief that the calendar foresees the end of the world comes from Judeo-Christian interpretations, the experts says. Velasquez warns against giving too much weight to Monument 6, noting that it is just one of more than 5000 stones from the Mayan culture that have been studied. The earth still has a few years left, even in eyes of the ancient Maya: some stones refer to the year 7000. The Mayan culture enjoyed a golden age between AD250 and AD900 before its steady decline and the arrival of Spanish conquistadores in the 16th century. AAP

From Mexico’s Maya Riviera to ancient sites in Guatemala, the region foresees a tourism bonanza from the fateful December 21 date in the Mayan calendar, despite the frustrations felt by indigenous groups who are fed up with the doomsday myth. Tourists will f nd all-inclusive excursions and religious ceremonies in holy sites across Central America and Mexico. It is a chance to celebrate the contributions of the Mayan civilisation to humankind, but indigenous groups have accused governments and businesses of prof ting from Hollywood-inspired f ction about their culture. More than half of Guatemala’s population of nearly 15 million are from indigenous groups of Mayan descent. But the end of the world tales mean brisk business for others. Guatemala expects to greet two million foreign visitors in 2012, an eight per cent increase from the previous year, according to the Guatemalan Tourism Institute. Activities are planned in 13 archaeological and tourism sites on December 20. And on December 21, President Otto Perez will attend a televised ceremony at the archaeological site of Tikal, home to majestic pyramids. In Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, the Cancun Hotels Association says 90 per cent of rooms are booked for the second and third weeks of December, compared to 81 per cent last year. Conferences and ceremonies are planned at the El Tortuguero archaeological site in the state of Tabasco, where the stone calendar that foresees the end of the current cycle was discovered. A ceremony will also be held that day in Copan, the main Maya site in Honduras, with the country’s President Prof rio Lobo in attendance. In neighbouring El Salvador light shows are planned in the El Tazumal and Joya de Ceren sites in the west of the country. AAP

A SUPER-GREEN DESIGN

S

ustainability and efficiency will be key aspects to the design of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital at Kawana, which will open in 2016. A range of sustainable features aims to reduce the hospital’s impact on the environment and enable it to adapt to future demands. Hospital staff and the community are being consulted with plans to interweave buildings with green spaces to enable patients, visitors and staff to freely access landscaped spaces. The design reflects the Coast’s natural environment and is targeting four-star Green Star ‘design’ and ‘as built’ ratings under the Green Building Council of Australia’s sustainability rating system. Outdoor spaces are integral to the hospital’s functionality and a central courtyard with a large outdoor room will be a major feature. The buildings will link seamlessly with the outdoors, drawing on the healing properties of the gardens

Coast health workers called in to consult

while reducing the reliance on internal areas and the load on building systems, and increasing the availability of natural light and fresh air. The orientation of the building and passive solar protection to all openings will reduce heat load and reflected heat glare. This will result in reduced energy consumption and a cooler external environment to counter the urban ‘heat island’ effect. These features aim to aid the healing process and enhance the general wellbeing of visitors and users. Flexibility is built into the design, enabling the buildings to adapt to changes in demand and healthcare innovations. This will extend the life of the facilities, increasing long-term operational efficiency and sustainability. SCUH sustainability features • Renewable and energy-efficient infrastructure, including infrastructure to reduce peak electricity demand and provide thermal energy storage. • Rainwater harvesting and water reclamation. • Solar hot water systems. • Energy-efficient lighting, ventilation systems and controls. • ISO 14001 environmental management system. • Bicycle destination facilities.

More than 250 Sunshine Coast hospital and health service staff and advisers will be consulted to determine the design and layout of SCUH. The complex will comprise nearly 7000 rooms and each one needs to be designed and documented for construction. The hospital will initially open with 450 beds and will grow to 738 beds by 2021 to meet forecasted demand for hospital services. The hospital has been masterplanned to ensure easy expansion

to 900 beds if needed. The first round of user group meetings is underway to inform floor-by-floor planning and finalise the overall layout of the hospital departments. The consultation and feedback from experts is expected to provide for safe, efficient operation and best practice in hospital design. The process aims to ensure the hospital is easy to navigate and consider traffic issues such as intersection spacing and the design of roads and supporting infrastructure.

Headache-free parking for new hospital Sunshine Coast University Hospital will be designed with easy access in mind. Designated parking, easy public transport access and safe areas for pedestrians and cyclists are all factored into the hospital’s design. About 3500 car spaces will be provided on the Kawana Health Campus, including two multi-deck car parks. The first car park will open in late 2013, to coincide with the opening of the co-located private hospital. By late 2016, a multi-deck car park adjacent to SCUH will open with dedicated staff and public access to the hospital via overhead bridge links. A total of 180 car spaces will be provided for people with disabilities and these will be strategically located adjacent to the main entry and other access points. The car parking facilities will also provide up to 180 electric vehicle charging stations to accommodate the increasing use of electric vehicles in the future. Dedicated zones will be provided at hospital entries for drop-offs by private vehicles and taxis without disrupting traffic flow. SCUH will have a dedicated bus stop at the main entry of the hospital and the site is close to a number of proposed public transport facilities.

] THE WEEK THAT WAS

A SMART SACRIFICE

Darryl Watt is from Ord Minnett in Buderim

W

e have previously discussed that if you want to be comfortable in retirement you need to follow a financial plan, and in particular, make the most of superannuation, as this will likely form a large part of your retirement savings. Recent government changes have reduced the concessional, or tax-effective, amount that can be contributed to super to a maximum of $25,000 per annum regardless of your age. So now, more than ever, superannuation is about saving slowly for retirement over a number of decades, rather than making large

contributions over the last five to 10 years of your working life. Most employees receive a super guarantee contribution from their employer of at least nine per cent of their basic salary. A simple and tax-effective way to increase this amount is to salary sacrifice to super. This involves agreeing with your employer for some of your pre-tax salary to be paid directly to your super fund, before tax is deducted. The sacrifice comes from not having that amount paid to you as salary in-the-hand. There are two main benefits associated with this strategy. You don’t pay personal tax on amounts you salary sacrifice to super; instead your super contributions are usually taxed at a rate of 15 per cent, provided you stay below the $25,000 limit. For a person earning $100,000 per annum, their employer will generally make super guarantee contributions of nine per cent, or $9000 per annum. This person

could then make salary sacrifice contributions to super of $16,000 per annum and only pay $2400 contributions tax rather than $6160 personal tax and Medicare. This could provide a considerable tax saving of around $3760 per annum, which can greatly increase your savings over a 20-year time frame. As well as helping your superannuation savings grow by having more to invest, salary sacrificing to super can also mean higher net investment returns once you take tax into account. This is because the maximum tax on investment earnings in super is 15 per cent, whereas the same earnings outside super are taxed at your marginal rate, which can be as high as 46.5 per cent.

Within weeks she was excited, happy, motivated and amazed to get her life back. When she f rst began antidepressants, she felt a lack of interest in life, low mood, irritability, anger, anxiety and insomnia. Exhaustion then caused more anger and irritability.

LOCAL PRODUCE IN HIGH DEMAND OVER CHRISTMAS

Co-directors Duane Ashton and Graeme Twine

W

ith demand for fresh, local produce set to increase dramatically over the Christmas period, Graeme Twine of Suncoast Fresh is asking new growers to give him a call. Twine says he’s always looking for more local growers to supply his client base of around 200 Sunshine Coast restaurants, but there’s more urgency over Christmas, when the effects of the typical Sunshine Coast summer force him to source more produce interstate. “It’s not necessarily anyone’s fault, it’s more of a seasonal thing,” says Twine. “It gets too hot and

rainy here over summer and a lot has to come out of Victoria.” Suncoast Fresh is a fresh fruit and vegetable distributor that matches local foods with local restaurants and was recently awarded its second consecutive business award at the Sunshine Coast Excellence in business awards, beating a strong field of contenders. Twine and co-director Duane Ashton lead a team of more than 20 staff. With major distribution centres in Coolum and Brisbane, along with a retail outlet at Belmondos in Noosaville, Suncoast Fresh has landed on the map after opening its doors four years ago. “By continuing to strengthen our position as the leading supplier of local produce, not only do we support other local businesses but we also have higher quality produce at a reduced cost due to minimal transport spoilage and charges,” says Twine. “Food miles and sustainability are key national and international trends. We actively participate in the local food community by acting as brokers, and keeping the exchange of goods and information flowing.” As a result of the Suncoast Fresh local food philosophy, it has been approached by many high-profile restaurants in Brisbane, asked to participate in the Noosa Food and Wine Festival 2013 and was recently the focus of a Chinese language documentary on fresh food in Australia. Suncoast Fresh was awarded the excellence in business award in the large food industry category at the Sunshine Coast Excellence in Business awards on November 10.

No melting g moments British scientists ts have developed a new ew melt-proof recipe for the desirable cocoa treat, ideal to withstand a warm Aussie summer. ummer. The heat-tolerant lerant chocolate, developed loped by Cadbury engineers eers at a plant near Birmingham, remains emains solid even when exposed to temperatures in excess of 40 degrees for more than three hours, reports British newspaper The Mail on Sunday. The secret to keeping a solid block is in the production process, specifically a step called conching, when metal beads grind together ingredients. Scientists have developed a way of breaking down sugar which reduces the amount of fat that attaches to the sweet particles. “We have found that it is possible to instil temperature-tolerant properties by refining the conched chocolate after the conching step,” Cadbury wrote in its patent application for the new product. “Production of temperature-tolerant chocolate would allow production of chocolate-containing products more suitable for hot climates, particularly in less economically developed countries where the supply chain is ill-equipped to handle temperature fluctuations.” Critics of the new melt-proof chocolate have already emerged, with some claiming the changes would not be possible without altering the flavour. “The melting point is what makes the bar so attractive, as that is what releases the flavour. If it melts at a higher temperature, it will take longer for it to melt in the mouth,” came an admission from Cadbury management firm Kraft Foods spokesman Tony Bilsborough. AAP

Hot 91.1 FM breakfast host Todd Widdicombe gives his opinion on the best brews of the week. 12 at a sprawling office in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley. Although food bloggers snipe about her recipes being as low in nutritional value as they are in calories, supporters say she speaks to an audience that loves to eat and is looking for a way to eat the things they love at a fraction of the calories. Dawn Jackson Blatner, a registered dietitian who has published her own cookbooks, calls Lillien’s recipes low-calorie junk food. But, Blatner quickly adds, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. “Two out of three people in this country are overweight. Do they need fewer calories? Is her whole enterprise teaching ways to achieve that? Yes,” says Blatner. For people who won’t give up pizza and cheeseburgers, the Hungry Girl diet might not be a bad alternative. Lillien believes her lack of credentials as a nutritionist actually gives her more credibility with her audience, which realises she’s one of them, just another foodie who doesn’t want to sacrifice taste for trimness.

A TASTY ITALIAN

How Hungry Girl shed kilos without guilt She never set out to become the maven of guilt-free, fun-food dieting. Ten years ago, Lisa Lillien was just a 30-something woman who needed to drop 10 kilos and followed fads like an all-liquid diet or a one-meal-a-day diet. Afterwards, she’d return to her beloved jam-slathered bagels and french fries and gain it all back. “Then one day I just woke up and I said, ‘you know what? That’s not the way to tackle a weight problem’,” says the trim but not skinny Lillien, who now presides over a multimilliondollar empire of Hungry Girl cookbooks, low-calorie recipes, products and TV shows, all of them geared to letting people eat the junk food they love and not get fat. The trick is discovering why you’re eating too many calories, says Lillien, as she dashes from a couch at Hungry Girl headquarters to the kitchen, to help an assistant whip up baked potato skins stuffed with cheese and bacon. Her chilli-cheese fries are made with butternut squash, not potatoes, and have only 268 calories. Recipes for those and other feel-good foods like lasagne, pizza and spongecake have placed Lillien atop a brand that has grown phenomenally in the eight years since the former TV executive came up with the name (it just popped into her head one day). Lillien started the business at home and now oversees a staff of

A wise fella once said, “Without question, beer is the greatest invention in the history of mankind.” Do I agree? Does Clive Palmer like dinosaurs and barbecue chicken? Hell yes! Beer is the product of a genius mind. Sure, the wheel was a fine invention, as was the Hills Hoist clothesline, but neither go as well with pizza! In an age when we are all going ‘organic’ man, and running down the use of chemicals and additives in our foods, we should also acknowledge that not all chemicals are bad. For example, without chemicals like hydrogen and oxygen there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer. This week we find ourselves knocking the top off a few frothy chops of the Italian variety. Our European cousins have produced many awesome things over the years, such as Ferraris and mozzarella cheese, and the fully Imported Peroni Nastro Azzurro is no exception. Brewed in Rome, it really is the

Italian stallion of the brewing universe. The name Nastro Azzurro is Italian for ‘blue ribbon’ and it’s easy to see why this iconic pale lager is one of the world’s most popular beers. To start, you’re greeted with a fairly bitter and dry welcome that quickly turns fruity in aftertaste, with only the slightest whiff of beer given off from the hops, making it a fresh, crisp, thirst-quenching all-rounder. Peroni is a cracking beer for summer. Easy to drink, it’s a real session beer for the festive season. A very big four thumbs up out of five. Salute.

hey say you get just one chance to make a good f rst impression. Perhaps that’s why Japanese luxury brand Inf niti has taken so long to launch its range Down Under – about 25 years, to be precise. I guess we should feel f attered that they’ve spent so long getting their act together before giving Australia a taste of their wares. The Americans, for instance, have been driving Inf nitis since 1989. In fact, I remember during a visit to some

American friends in Texas a couple of years back, we spent most of the time rumbling around in their massive, V8-powered, eight-seat Inf niti SUV – and seeing all manner of Inf nitibadged machines, from sexy-looking coupes to swish limos – sharing the freeways with us. So you could say it’s about time we got some of the action. Inf niti, in case you were wondering, is the luxury arm of Japanese car giant Nissan – in the same way Lexus adds a halo brand to the Toyota company.

First conceived by Nissan in 1985 with a project called Horizon Task Force, the Inf niti badge was primarily aimed at winning a slice of the rather parochial American market. Having ticked that box in the late 1980s, Inf niti expanded f rst into the Middle East, then Asia and, about f ve years ago, western Europe – and now boasts 340 dealers in 40 countries. Now, f nally, we’ve made the list, though Inf niti is starting its Australian odyssey relatively slowly. It is bringing only a small part of the model range here for a start, launching f rst with two models – the FX range of crossover SUVs and the Inf niti M full-sized luxury sedan. A coupe and convertible model are not far away, with the promise of a further expanded range in the new year. But there’s already plenty to suggest it is about to become a signif cant player in the Aussie luxury car stakes. Like Lexus, most Inf niti models are continued over>

< from previous page targeted to the American market, but unlike their Japanese rivals, that means some typically American features like indicators on the wrong (left) side of the steering wheel; an annoying foot-operated park brake and, in the case of our first Infiniti test machine, a stonking V8 engine. Our first Infiniti experience came at the wheel of the FX, a biggish, sleek-looking SUV with a choice of petrol V8, diesel or petrol V6 engines, with a starting price in the low to mid $90,000s and ranging up to the $125,000 price tag of our test machine – the flagship FX50S Premium. It’s not cheap, admittedly, but this is a vehicle built to challenge the likes of Mercedes-Benz’s M-Class, BMW’s X5 and Audi’s Q7. We drove two versions – the FX50S (denoting a five-litre V8 petrol engine and ‘sport’ configuration) and the three-litre turbo-diesel, FX30dS – not exactly a name which rolls off the tongue. The FX50S gives a racy, sporty

edge to the range, with the ability to sprint to the speed limit in a shade under six seconds. The diesel, meanwhile, with a hefty 170kW and 500Nm on tap, lends almost as much power but vastly improved fuel efficiency – as well as being a bit more affordable at just over $90,000. Both impressed us with their imposing size and their classy interior and refined engine and drivetrain. All models use the same seven-speed automatic transmission.

The FX is a car with serious road presence, and our test vehicle drew no shortage of admiring glances and people walking around demanding to know “what’s this?”. Standard kit on both models includes the likes of continuous damping suspension with a choice of auto and sport modes; high-end Bose audio system; automatic High Intensity Discharge bi-Xenon headlamps, power rear tailgate; heated and power-folding wing mirrors; keyless entry and hard-drive

navigation system with a ‘Music Box’ and Bluetooth streaming. Spend the extra coin on the FX50 and you’ll also gain clever electronic aids like a lane-departure warning system and radar-guided cruise control with collision avoidance alert. Both models come with plenty of luxuries; the plump leather seats are heated and cooled to cope with both temperature extremes, and are electrically adjustable in all manner of directions, including pneumatic lumbar support. The excellent climate control air-conditioning system uses something called ‘natural grape polyphenol fibres’ to filter the air and neutralise allergens. Rare air, indeed. And the Infiniti even boasts ‘Scratch Shield’ paint that heals itself. The FX is a gorgeous looking thing, both in the flesh and in images, and is just as sumptuous to drive. No wonder Infiniti has chosen to use this car in its eye-catching, Germanbaiting billboard campaigns around the place. Let’s face it – first impressions count for a lot.

MY MOTORING INSIDER The latest news from MWP’s man on the ground.

Honda MDX tipped to return to Australia

A Daimler Brand

Honda insiders report that the third generation premium large SUV Honda MDX has local prototypes rumoured to be here for testing. Honda Australia has not had an MDX since 2006 and dealers have been hoping to revive the seven-seat SUV. Sources are putting the chances of the Honda MDX coming to Australia at about 80 per cent.

Jaguar and Land Rover to be built in China A new joint venture with Chery Automobile Company will have Jaguars and Land Rovers built in China for the first time. Sources say the cars will be built at a new factory near Shanghai. The factory will also produce joint-branded cars targeting the Chinese market.

Mazda’s popular CX-5 will get the option of the same 2.5-litre 138kW SkyActiv-G engine as the Mazda6 in the first quarter next year. A rush of compact SUVs to the market with bigger-sized engines has forced Mazda to respond. Currently the CX-5 has a 2.0 litre, 113-kilowatt, 198-Newton metre SkyActiv front-

wheel drive engine. Honda’s new CRV comes with a 2.4-litre 140-kilowatt and Toyota’s Rav4 – to be revealed at this month’s LA Motor show – will get the Camry’s 2.5-litre, 133-kilowatt engine. Pricing has not been confirmed but sources say the engine will incur a slight price adjustment over the 2.0-litre engine.

The luxury of choice.

GOOD NEWS FOR FORD FANS

F

ord Australia and Rare Spares have announced a landmark partnership to supply a range of officially licensed Ford restoration parts for older model cars. Ford will give Rare Spares access to original Ford tooling to manufacture and sell officially licensed restoration parts in Australia, from the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Ford Falcon, the 1960 XK, through to the 1984 XF. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited to be working with Rare Spares to help keep these iconic Ford vehicles on the road,â&#x20AC;? Bob Graziano, president and CEO of Ford Australia, says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ford has a very iconic place in the history of Australian culture, and under this new agreement, Rare Spares are able to help enthusiasts restore their classic vehicles to their former glory and continue to pay tribute to Ford Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage.â&#x20AC;? The Ford Restoration Parts by Rare Spares program will give classic car enthusiasts access to a range of

David Rayner, Bob Graziano & Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stephen Kruk parts including authentic Ford badges, decals, wheel caps, seals and electrical components.

Opel a favourite with the people Opel came out a winner in the 25th Auto Zeitung magazine readersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; choice awards with three of its car models, the ADAM, Ampera and Mokka, being voted winners by readers of the German magazine. The ADAM won by a wide margin against its main competitors in the new city car category. The Opel Ampera completed a hat trick after winning the electric vehicle category for the third successive year, while the Opel Mokka was voted third place in the affordable SUVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s under 30,000 euro category. It is the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best performance at the auto trophy award for a decade. Opelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vice president of strategy, Thomas Sedran, says the three

winners stand out from the crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All three are of strategic importance for Opel because they are representative of forwardlooking mobility which is not just environmentally sound, but is fun and makes innovative technologies affordable,â&#x20AC;? Sedran says. More than 110,000 participants took part in the competition, choosing their favourites from a list of 400 vehicle models in 30 categories. Opel, General Motorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; aspirational German brand, entered the Australian market in September. The Australian portfolio includes the new generation Opel vehicles Insignia, European Car of the Year 2009, the award-winning Astra and the recently upgraded Corsa. For more information visit opel-australia.com.au.

Free spirit, warm heart Caloundraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Free Spirit Caravans diversified its business this year, launching into the construction of mobile health facilities for use in indigenous communities in far north Queensland. After months of work, two off-road caravans, each featuring the latest dental and medical facilities, were delivered to Gidgee Healing in Mt Isa this month. Gidgee Healing is an Aboriginal community-controlled health service, which provides primary health and medical services to indigenous people in Mt Isa and surrounding areas. Free Spirit Caravans director Elaine Foster says while the design is quite different from the recreational vehicles usually built, they embraced the opportunity and are thrilled to be part of something that will help improve health provision to remote communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Outback areas will now have access to medical and dentistry services that were not available until now,â&#x20AC;? Foster says. Free Spirit Caravans director Ralf Brosch and production manager Ben Foster worked closely with Gidgee Healing to meet all the design features and to include the necessary medical equipment in the vans. The family-run business delivered the two caravans to Mt Isa with the help of Isuzu, who provided complimentary off-road vehicles to tow the caravans to the remote town. Federal MP Bob Katter was on

Ralf Brosch & Bob Katter site with Gidgee Healing staff and local community members to receive the two vans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The people were so nice and so grateful and so excited,â&#x20AC;? Foster says. The local business, which has been operating in Caloundra for four years, was chosen over longer-running businesses because of its unique design features. The chassis is lightweight, while the walls are very strong and insulated to help provide a controlled temperature, and the vans do not require a heavy rigid licence, meaning anyone with a car licence can tow the vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These factors led them to us, but we feel very honoured that they chose us,â&#x20AC;? Foster says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was nice to be involved in something that matters a lot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge difference for them and then you felt very humble because they are so appreciative of something that all of us take for granted.â&#x20AC;?

PROPERTY

PERSPECTIVE PREVIEW If you have unrealistic expectations of what your home is worth, you’re asking for trouble. Hiring a valuer when selling your home will save you a lot of potential heartache. WORDS Jemma Pearson

hat is your property worth? How about that one on the market you’ve had your eye on? We know that the price of the property is determined by the market – in other words, it is worth whatever the buyer is willing to pay. But property valuations are an important component of the buying and selling process, and it’s a good idea to get your head around this, whether you are about to buy or are planning to sell. Having a property valued and understanding how the valuer came up with that figure is vital, says Propell National Valuers’ Aaron Parker, so you can be “better equipped to respond to market conditions or to prepare yourself both financially and emotionally for changes that have occurred in the market”. As a buyer it is important to understand a property’s value so you can submit a fair price, and as a seller, you need to know that your asking price reflects the current market – no vendor wants to experience the disappointment of their home sitting on the market without selling. Unrealistic vendor expectations, particularly in a slow market such as the one we’ve had for the past couple of years, are causing heartache for vendors and their real estate agents. “The core of this problem revolves around the fact that many vendors will judge the value of their property based on the prices they see other properties advertised for (or unanalysed recent sales prices),” says Parker. The danger of a property sitting too long on the market is that it can become stagnant and unattractive to buyers, so why do some vendors

still hold on to too-high a price? “Many vendors erroneously believe that the cost of construction equals the value of the property and henceforth what it should sell for,” says Parker. “In a perfectly balanced market that may well end up happening, but rarely is any market truly balanced and certainly in 2011/12 it has been anything but balanced, with favouritism being skewed towards the buyer.” Another issue, says Parker, are those “vendors who feel that the property ‘owes them’ a certain amount and therefore that’s what they feel it should sell for (and hence what they’ve advertised it for). This notion often arises through the renovation process and again, many vendors have had to accept lower than expected sales prices. Buyers aren’t interested in what it’s cost you to renovate a property. They are interested only in how it

Many vendors will judge the value of their property based on the prices they see other properties advertised for Aaron Parker compares to other properties of the same type in the same market.” So taking a quick look at recent sales, adding up what the property cost to build or adding the price that you bought it for with the cost of renovations, will not get you to an accurate value. It’s a situation many of this year’s vendors found themselves in. Then, sometimes in desperation, they’ve accepted a price that was much lower than they had hoped for. Auctioneer Jason Andrew is familiar with the scenario. Last week he reported that “overinflated vendor expectations led to one of the lowest auction clearance rates in some months” at the previous weekend’s auctions. Andrew has a warning for vendors who are listening to speculation that the market recovery is leading to improved prices. “We are hearing more and more vendors saying they will hold out for a premium price as they expect the market to improve over coming months,” Andrew says. “Vendors of properties that were sold under the hammer on auction day last week discounted their original reserve price by an average of

MY W EEKLYPREVIE W. CO M . AU

37.indd 1

5.7 per cent, showing expectations that were close to market value. “But in many other instances, vendors refused even to entertain offers at market value as they clearly had much higher expectations, often without any real basis. “While there are some encouraging signs in the economy, it is far too early to say a widespread recovery is guaranteed and despite some recent media commentary, we have seen no evidence of an upwards pressure on price at this point.” Many property commentators seem to agree that while properties are selling, prices are still subdued, and only those vendors with realistic expectations are selling within a reasonable time of putting up the ‘for sale’ sign. Part of managing those expectations is, of course, to get an independent valuation. While a valuer will look at past sale prices, trends and upcoming projects, he or she will dig even deeper, looking at the type of property (house or unit), its location and condition, the council zoning, easements and land use, and a range of other factors. Make sure you agree on a fee before commissioning the valuer, and if you aren’t the property owner, get the owner’s permission first.

When to call in a pro As a vendor, you might think that asking your real estate agent what he or she reckons your property is worth is the same as getting it valued. But there is a big difference. A real estate agent will offer an appraisal. The agent will take into account recent sales data and what he or she believes the market will do in the future (in other words, if prices are likely to go up or down). The direction the market is moving will make a big difference. An upwardmoving market will tend to lift the values of the appraisals. So while the agent will attempt to be as realistic as possible based on his or her experience, you should always treat this appraisal f gure as an estimate. If you are dealing with a lender and need to establish your property’s market value, you’ll have to get an accredited valuer in to give you a valuation that can be relied upon by the lender when you apply for a loan.

The Department of Environment and Resource Management offers a facility called SmartMaps, which displays current information on Queensland property boundaries, valuations and sales data, and survey information. It’s a handy resource for buyers and owners. Head to derm.qld.gov.au, click on ‘topics’ then ‘Mapping and survey’ and ‘SmartMaps’.

However, if asbestos walls and roofs are damaged, or you are planning to remove walls as part of maintenance or renovation works, you’ll need to get a licenced asbestos remover in to do the work for you. Asbestos products were used in the wet areas of the home, such as bathrooms, laundries and kitchens. If you are planning to do work on your home and you are unsure if it contains asbestos, it is best to get an expert asbestos removalist in to test it. Visit asbestosawareness.com.au to find out more.

One in three Australian homes contain the potentially harmful material, and it’s a timely reminder in the weeks leading up to Christmas, when many home owners tackle repairs and renovations. The campaign’s aim was to educate all home owners about the risks of being exposed to asbestos fibres. The ADRI reports that many homes renovated or built before the

012 has proved to be a good year for the developer Stockland, with strong sales in its Brightwater and Bells Reach communities. Around 100 blocks have been bought in the communities since the beginning of the year. Stockland regional manager David Laner says, “At Brightwater, we’ve welcomed hundreds of new residents, opened a Living Display Centre and regional sports field, and seen substantial progress on the future retail heart of the community. “In less than 12 months since the launch of Bells Reach, we now have new homes, a Village Park and also a brand new Living Display Centre at this community.” Laner says innovative home designs, a wider choice of land sizes and lower interest rates had helped improve home affordability in the region. As well as Brightwater and

Bells Reach, Stockland also has home sites in Birtinya, close to the new hospitals and in Noosa. “Our communities are attracting interest from all buyer types, particularly people looking to upgrade to a new home to improve their current lifestyle,” Laner says. “First-home buyers, downsizers and investors are all active, indicating the new home market is returning to a more traditional mix of buyers. “The common theme is people looking to build in locations that offer good access to all the key services like schools, shopping, transport and sporting facilities.

You may have noticed the loveable beagle used in RealWay Property Consultants’ marketing campaigns, and the company has now produced a cuddly soft toy, which is currently referred to as the RealWay dog. But every good dog needs a name, and the Australian real estate company is now looking for one for its mascot, launching a competition to find a name for the RealWay dog. If you think you have a name that is friendly and easily

identifiable, then let RealWay know. Either drop into any RealWay office, send an email to namethedog@ realway.com.au or head to the Facebook page at www.facebook. com/homeoftherealwaydog. You need to include your name and contact number, plus your suggestion for the dog’s name. If yours is the winning entry, you will receive two nights at Peppers Broadbeach for two adults and two children. The competition closes on December 31.

HAMMER TIME ON THE RANGE

interland agents have been reporting strong auction activity over the past few weeks, with a number of successful sales under the hammer. Maleny & Hinterland Real Estate recently sold three properties in three weekends, including a wellattended auction at 14 Cookes Road, Conondale. Agent David Gamble says 53 groups watched the home sell to buyers from Brisbane, who are “planning on using the property as a getaway for the family and retirement”. One week later Julie Reimers’ listing at 105 River Road, Peachester also sold under the hammer, as did a well-maintained home with views at 218 Witta Road, to buyers who had inspected it for the first time only a week prior. Gamble and Reimers believe the market is on the move in Maleny and say clients have been impressed with the auction process, which they say produces “the best possible results

ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20 Saturday looks rather stressful, as something – or someone – irritates you. Sunday is a better day – the perfect time to relax with family and friends, and tend to chores around the home.

TAURUS Apr 21-May 21 Hedonistic bulls are in the mood to indulge this weekend via fine dining, shopping or pampering. But make sure your current bank balance can afford life’s little luxuries.

GEMINI May 22-Jun 21 With Jupiter moving through your sign, get ready for some exciting changes. Be inspired by birthday great Bette Midler “Life is nothing but change.”

CANCER Jun 22-Jul 23 Crabs will feel rather crabby on Saturday, as tensions and emotions rise to the surface. Make sure you spend time with a child, teenager or friend on Sunday.

LEO Jul 24-Aug 23 Your domestic life will be hectic this weekend, so try to put aside some quiet time for a very special person – you. The more relaxed you are, the better family relationships will be.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 Relations with a child, teenager or friend may be fractious on Saturday so tread carefully. Sunday favours conversation, as you connect with people in your neighbourhood.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 When it comes to family matters, ask questions and discover what’s really going on. A close relationship can be richly rewarding, as long as you don’t skate on the emotional surface.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 Communication looks tense on Saturday, as you try to convert someone to your way of thinking. Slow down, Scorpio. The gentle art of persuasion will get you a lot further on Sunday.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 Financial matters look stressful on Saturday, so avoid making any major money moves until things settle down. Sunday is a super day to dream big dreams for the future.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 With mighty Mars marching through your sign, it’s time to be brazenly bold and beautiful. If you’re not confident about your talents, why should anyone else sing your praises?

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 Be careful how you communicate with others on Saturday. If you make unconsidered or flippant comments, then there will be misunderstandings. Take the time to listen to others.

PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 With the sun shining in your career zone, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get to work – even on the weekend. The more passionate and proactive you are, the more successful you’ll be.

Well surfers I can’t add much to this week’s report than I haven’t already said over the last few weeks. On Thursday there will be a E/NE swell up to two-foot with light N/NW winds early, turning strong northerly through the day. On Friday the swell will drop back to one to two foot with light N/NW winds tending moderate to fresh N/NE later. For the weekend, well, it gets no better with a N/NE windswell up to two-foot with moderate northerly winds tending fresh N/NE later. With high tides mid morning, try to f nd a surfable bank on the open beaches early and for more size later look for somewhere out of the northerlies such as Kawana Pocket, the northern end of Sunshine, Yaroomba or Kings Beach. Good surf ng.

FISHING REPORT with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: Whiting are taking yabbies on the drift at Bli Bli with mud crabs at the mouths of the feeder creeks. Catch f athead and jew in the Cod Hole area on live bait or lures. Plastics are weaving their usual magic on most species. SURF: Sand whiting and small dart are along Maroochy Beach using cured worms (they stay on the hook better) with low tide producing the best sizes. Tailor are surprising anglers at Pincushion and Point Cartwright. OFFSHORE: Spotted mackerel are taking weighted pillies just off Point Cartwright and Twelve Mile. Tailor are nabbing small lures trolled just past the breakers. Murphy’s and Coolum Reefs are returning mixed reef species. FRESHWATER: Borumba Dam is returning bass on deep divers and saratoga on surface poppers or f ies. Check out Lake Baroon for good-sized bass on live shrimps. Further af eld, reports from Boondooma and Bjelke-Petersen dams are not encouraging yet, but will improve with hotter weather.
