hink a cloud is that fluffy white (or grey) stuff up in the sky, and the NBN is just another pipe dream the pollies in Canberra enjoy arguing over? You need to read this week’s cover story. Jarna Baudinette has put her tech hat on and is exploring how new technologies and greater connectivity are changing the way we do business, and what that means for Sunshine Coast workers and business owners. You might think you can get by living in a bubble of tech ignorance, but you’ll seriously be selling yourself short if you do. Jarna has been talking to the people who are taking the Coast into the brave new world, and f nds out why we should all be embracing the changes to our lives and workplaces. Turn over to f nd out what the future holds. We have a special extended star style section this issue, which is dedicated to the

well-dressed women who attended the Logies earlier in the week. If you don’t mind a pretty frock, head to page 12. We have plenty of motoring news including Peter Atkinson’s review of the Mazda CX-9, a gentle reminder from the RACQ and more. In property this week we present the f nal instalment in our series on retirement living (on page 40) and our extended home style section will help you prepare for the cooler months ahead by taking the chill out of your place. Head to page 25 for that. History will remember this month as the start of the royal commission into institutional child sex abuse. In agenda (on page 32) we take a look at the f rst day of proceedings and what it means for those who have waited so long for their previously muff ed voices to be heard.

TECH SUPPORT

PREVIEW Smart Coast businesses are getting tech savvy in the lead-up to the NBN’s arrival. WORDS Jarna Baudinette

he Federal Government’s multibillion-dollar National Broadband Network, designed to update Australia’s ageing telecommunications infrastructure in order to deliver high-speed internet access to 93 per cent of Australian homes and businesses by 2021, has been underway since 2009 and is a hot topic politically, especially in this election year. As with most major government projects, the NBN has been the subject of hearty debate, and has undergone its share of changes and setbacks over the past few years. Under the current plan, the Sunshine Coast will be connected to the network in stages from late 2014. While full delivery is still some years away, the aim of the project is to better equip Australians to participate in the growing digital economy; and with technology advancing at an exponential rate,

local industry experts say this is something the Sunshine Coast shouldn’t be waiting for. Michael Whereat is Sunshine Coast Council’s broadband and digital economy manager and acts as co-chair of the Broadband Today Alliance, a coalition of more than 120 local governments and regional development associations committed to helping their communities make the transition to a digitally based economy. He says while it’s easy to think of the NBN as a long way off, local businesses need to focus on using the technology that is already available to them. “When we f rst looked at the Broadband Today Alliance, we were focusing on the NBN, but for most councils it was still years away, and for some it still is,” Whereat says. “So we went with Broadband Today – the idea was, let’s get on with it and use what we’ve got today, wherever we are.”

This means educating and encouraging local business people to incorporate existing and emergent technologies into their day-to-day operations. The Get Up to Speed program is being delivered by local f rm The Creative Collective and is designed to help businesses across Queensland make the transition to using new technologies. Whereat says he is pleased so many locals have taken part, with 42 per cent of participants from the Coast. “For me that’s fantastic, because it means there is a strong recognition by Sunshine Coast businesses that they need to work online, as well as having a physical presence, to be successful in the emerging digital economy,” Whereat says. As well as the potential to increase revenue, new technologies make businesses run more eff ciently. “If you look at a company such as Intelligent Automation, which is

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

How we work and who we might work for over the course of our career is no longer the same as it was in the last century

Michael Whereat an electronics company based in Maroochydore, they use smart tablets and smartphones for automating jobs, but also for automating invoices,” Whereat says. “The signif cant thing for them is that, as a small business, cash f ow is critical, so being able to charge and receive funds for work that’s done on the day is invaluable.” Many businesses are also embracing ‘the cloud’, a form of network-based computing that allows businesses to create, share and store data over the internet and reduces the need for expensive software and infrastructure. “More and more people are moving their data into the cloud, so if their equipment gets stolen, lost in a f re or damaged in a f ood, they haven’t lost any data,” Whereat says. “In the event of something like that occurring, having secured cloudbased data storage is becoming critical. Again that doesn’t require tomorrow’s NBN, it only requires the services we have available. “Right now, in business, if you haven’t looked at cloud-based accounting products like Xero or Saasu, then you’re probably paying more than you should be for your accounting.” Technology is also making traditional off ce communication more eff cient. Whereat says he uses

several web-based platforms in his day-to-day work, including Basecamp, an online project management platform that allows workers to log in and share content, send messages and follow progress on a particular project – a process far more f exible and interactive than a traditional written project plan. “We also use a product called Go To which allows screen sharing via a conversation that’s free over VOIP [voice over internet protocol],” Whereat says. While technology allowing you to share information with someone in a different location has been around for a while, Whereat says the increasing interactivity of these platforms is changing the way we do business. “The real change is actually about being able to share screens and have that live connection,” he says. “There’s another platform, Microsoft Lync, which also allows you to share screens and talk through various things. It really changes how things work.” There are implications for employees and job seekers too, especially in a tight job market. “I think it’s become absolutely critical that people understand the rapid change in the way we work,” Whereat says. “How we work and who we might work for over the course of our career is no longer the same as it was in the last century,

GET

and we need to be very keenly aware of what technology is doing and how to take advantage of that – whether it’s to start a new business for ourselves, or to work for others and work remotely.” While Whereat doesn’t particularly like the term teleworker, – “we use ‘digital worker’ as a phrase instead” – he says local people currently looking for work or seeking a change of career need to consider the impact of technology on the job market. The ongoing development of web-based industries is creating greater f exibility in the way we work, whether that means using mobile computing software in the f eld, or connecting to a business remotely to provide support or write reports.

“The nature of how people work is changing, and people who are looking for work now need to consider the new paradigm for how we live in a digital economy,” Whereat says. “There are more options now, and they need to look at what sorts of work are available and how best they get work.” Technology is also creating more opportunities for local businesses to collaborate. “So much of our work these days is relationship-based,” Whereat says, adding there are now greater incentives to maximise these relationships across the region and beyond. “People and businesses collaborating is one of the things I see increasing greatly,” he says. “People have always been doing it, but it’s been harder – the digital economy makes it easier to collaborate.”

WHEN GOING TO WORK IS ALL FUN AND GAMES

W

eb-based and tech companies are among the fastest-growing enterprises in the world, and they also boast some of the coolest workplaces. Take Apple’s ring-shaped,

AAP

gleaming ‘Spaceship Headquarters’, which will include a world-class auditorium and an orchard for engineers to wander in. Google’s new campus will feature walkways angled to force accidental encounters. Facebook – while putting the f nal touches on a Disney-inspired campus including a Main Street with a barbecue shack, sushi house and bike shop – is already planning an even larger, more exciting new campus. As the tech industry soars, plans are in the works for a f urry of massive, perk-laden headquarters. Yahoo was an early model of Silicon Valley’s happy workplace culture, touting its espresso bar and inspirational speakers as a method of inspiring passion and originality. Now new Silicon Valley headquarters or expansions are underway at most of the area’s major f rms, including eBay, Intel, LinkedIn, Microsoft and Netf ix.

Apple’s 71-hectare campus will be one of the world’s largest workplaces. Companies say extraordinary campuses are necessary to recruit and retain top talent and to spark innovation and creativity. And there are business benef ts and f nancial results for companies that keep their workers happy – the publicly traded 100 Best Companies To Work For in America consistently outperform major stock indices and have more qualif ed job applicants and higher productivity, according to the San Francisco-based Great Place to Work Institute. “People do work really, really hard here,” Facebook spokesman Slater Tow tells AAP as an engineer glides past a row of second-f oor conference rooms on a skateboard. “They have to be passionate about what they do. If they’re not, we would rather someone who is.” He points out the Jumbotron frame for outdoor movies, the Nacho Royale taqueria, a bank branch with tellers standing by and an artist in residence. Facebook staffers are

welcome to stop by and play in Ben Barry’s Analog Research Laboratory, a large, sunlit studio with laser cutters, woodworking tools, a letter press machine and silk screening supplies. About 10 kilometres north, at Google’s headquarters, workers on one of more than 1000 Googledesigned bikes rolled from one building to another. Others stepped into electric cars, available for free check outs if someone has an errand. In one off ce, two young engineers enjoyed a beer and shot pool. There’s a climbing wall, nap pods, a bowling alley, multiple gyms, a variety of healthy cafes, mini kitchens, a shared community garden and classes on anything from American Sign Language to public speaking. The company has no policy requiring people to be at work, but off cials say Googlers want to come in. “We work hard to create the healthiest, happiest and most productive work environments possible that inspire collaboration and innovation,” spokeswoman Katelin Todhunter-Gerberg says.

Cliff & Chic Wilson

Denis Murphy, Laurie Cowled

Snails are synonymous with slow, so for Slow Food Noosa it seemed logical to invite Cliff Wilson and Mary Page from Glasshouse Gourmet Snails along to its March breakfast to talk about this fascinating backyard creature. The event was held at Outrigger Little Hastings Street Resort and attracted more than 40 attendees, with all funds raised going towards Slow Food Noosa’s Kitchen Garden program.

SUPERANNUATION: The Great Debate Listen to Experts discuss all things SUPER.

Hear a Self Managed Super Fund specialist & Financial Adviser DEBATE! Learn how tax impacts on your super after your death from an Estate Planning Lawyer. Retired with investments not in super? Learn how it can be done in a tax effective manner.

The Great Super Debate Self Managed Super Funds^ (SMSF) now account for the biggest slice of the super pie in Australia – ahead of popular industry super funds. People are demanding greater flexibility over their own super. Listen to two industry experts debate the pros (there are several!) & cons (rarely discussed but there are some) on starting & operating your own super fund. Would you like to borrow to build an investment property or commercial building using your existing super funds as a deposit? Or perhaps you would prefer to operate your own share portfolio using your existing super funds. The list of options available in super and people pushing them is now endless – let’s look at the pros and cons on all of these possibilities.

Death & Taxes Do you know what TAX is payable by your estate after your death? Tax and death are both unavoidable – but when you add

‘superannuation’ to the mix, it can get unnecessarily complicated. For example, who controls your super on your death? We have invited a Senior Lawyer who specialises in Estate Planning to talk about making your super work in conjunction with your estate planning.

‘Super’ Tax Havens One of the most attractive features of having a SMSF is it allows you to take full advantage of the tax benefits exclusive to super. Super and tax have had a lot of bad press lately but with good planning you could be paying NO tax in retirement and still be receiving a substantial tax refund! And what about Retiring outside of super? We will also talk about how Retirees can still continue to pay no tax, and enjoy tax refunds outside of super, in retirement. This is a great opportunity for you to hear three experts express their opinions and those attending will be given ample opportunity to ask questions of all the speakers.

ight years and thousands of volunteer hours paid off for the Mooloolaba Coast Guard last Saturday when its new $1 million rescue vessel was formally commissioned. Mooloolaba Coast Guard commander John Annabell says the new vessel, named Rhonda Rescue, gives the volunteer rescue organisation far greater reach to help boaties in distress. He says Mooloolaba is the only all-weather ocean access port between Brisbane and Bundaberg

and his Coast Guard crew has been called out as far as 200 nautical miles to give assistance. The purpose-designed offshore rescue vessel has a hull lifespan of at least 20 years and is capable of a minimum range of 200 nautical miles. “Our members are absolutely over the moon and have been since it arrived here,” Annabell says. It took volunteers eight years to raise $810,000 for the boat, with the balance funded by grants. The boat is equipped with the latest broadband radar, sophisticated

Limed Off, a family fundraiser organised by Palmwoods locals Kara Taylor and Dave Holmes with the help of The Dirty Ones 4x4 club, was held recently and the day proved to be a big success. The event raised more than $5000 for Naomi Tague and Jack Gray. The money will help with medical costs for their two-year-old daughter Sophie, who suffers from a rare condition which has baff ed doctors.

navigation systems, high def nition LED screens and the latest communication equipment. Coast Guard members celebrated on Saturday with two ceremonies for the turning of the sod – one for the building headquarters extension project and the other to mark the beginning of a Memorial Wall project. If you’re interested in volunteering with Mooloolaba Coast Guard or want to become an associated member, call 5444 3222 for more information.

Innovations for boaties Mooloolaba Coast Guard has embraced software innovations aimed at more efficiently keeping track of local boaties. Coast software designer Adrian Carroll is the brains behind Radio Room Software, a digital solution to streamline the manual radio room log-in system. He has also developed a mobile phone app for boaties to log their trip details with Mooloolaba Coast Guard, instead of calling in their details over the radio.

n important building block for the future commercial heart of the Sunshine Coast was laid in Maroochydore last week with the turning of the first sod on the site of a new bus station. Councillor Rick Baberowski says the new bus station will ensure public transport can grow to meet the expected demand and is part of a wider program to improve sustainable transport options on the Coast. Sunshine Coast Council contributed $2.5 million towards the Maroochydore bus station, while the State Government provided the bulk of funding. The bus stop will include streetscaping and landscape design with the urban design to continue along Cornmeal Creek and Cliff Butt Promenade. The existing bus station will remain operational until the new bus platforms are opened. Construction is expected to be completed in October.

Name of HIV-positive man released

Last weeks of Qld firearms amnesty

Queensland Health has issued a warning for people who may have had unprotected sex with a Sunshine Coast HIV-positive man. Queensland Health deputy director general Dr Michael Cleary says the Sunshine Coast man, Alick Frank Robinson, 51, is believed to have had unprotected sex with several people. The man’s name has been released by the court in the interest of public health to identify people who may be at risk of HIV infection. Anyone with concerns about their risk from sexual contact with Robinson can call 13Health for advice and support.

Coast residents are reminded they have only a few weeks left to take advantage of the State Government’s firearms amnesty. The amnesty has allowed people to surrender f rearms without being prosecuted for their possession. Queenslanders have surrendered 4000 f rearms since the amnesty began in February, with about 500 weapons handed into police each week. Of these, nearly 800 were surrendered for destruction, more than 3000 for registration and about 50 for safekeeping. The amnesty ends on April 30. Call 1300 833 548 for more information.

ueensland’s independent health watchdog has ordered 14 cosmetic surgical and medical practitioners to lift their game in the interest of patient safety. A Health Quality and Complaints Commissions (HQCC) report released on Monday says there were four or more complaints about each of the 14 practitioners among 245 complaints received between July 1, 2006 and June 30, 2012. The report titled Great expectations: A Spotlight Report on Complaints about Cosmetic Surgical and Medical Procedures, said all 14 had been required to implement a quality improvement action plan. The report said the community often perceived cosmetic procedures to be low risk when they were often complex, required a high degree of skill and posed a number of potential risks. It found there was less regulation and fewer patient safeguards in this f eld than in other areas of medicine.

The report said 82 per cent of the 245 complaints were about cosmetic procedures and 16 per cent were about cosmetic medical procedures. Most complaints were about breast lifts and breast implants followed by facelifts, eye surgery abdominoplasty (tummy tucks) and breast reduction. Cosmetic injections and laser treatment were the most frequently complained about cosmetic medical procedures, followed by chemical peels. The number of complaints more than doubled between 2006 and 2012. AAP

Internet cafes provide solace for Chinese students seeking relief from school pressures

CHINESE INTERNET ADDICTS IGNORE FAMILIES

B

EIJING – Experts believe tens of millions of Chinese people are addicted to the internet, many of them teenagers, with online gaming and gambling among the biggest lures. China has an estimated 560 million internet users, including about 450 million under 18. More than 60 per cent of them are regular online gamers. Youngsters often seek refuge

online because they f nd it hard to cope with China’s intensively competitive school system, says Pi Yijun, from the China University of Political Science and Law. “In China, education is still exam-oriented, it leaves little time for after-school activities,” says Pi. Despite a ban on under-18s visiting internet cafes, many schoolchildren escape the clutches of their families by visiting them

instead of using home computers. State media have highlighted the problem of addiction in several dramatic reports in recent months. Police arrested a 14-year-old boy who confessed to poisoning his family with agricultural chemicals after his parents stopped him from playing online games last year. In December, a local newspaper reported that a man in the northern province of Shaanxi hired online ‘assassins’ to kill his 23-year-old son’s characters in popular games. The father reportedly wanted to push his son, who had played online games since his mid-teens, to try harder to f nd a job. Another report last month featured an unemployed college graduate who had lived at an internet cafe in the north-eastern city of Changchun for up to six years, leaving each day to buy food and sometimes to take showers. “His case is quite serious, but it is common among addicts,” says Ding Jianlue, a psychologist at Jilin University in Changchun.

Climate change blamed for bumpier flights Flights will become bumpier as global warming destabilises air currents at altitudes used by commercial airliners, climate scientists warn. Already, atmospheric turbulence injures hundreds of airline passengers each year, sometimes fatally, damaging aircraft and costing the industry an estimated $US150 million ($145 million), scientists say. “Climate change is not just warming the Earth’s surface, it is also changing the atmospheric winds 10 kilometres high, where planes f y,” says study co-author Paul Williams of the University of Reading’s National Centre for Atmospheric Science. “That is making the atmosphere more vulnerable to the instability that creates clear-air turbulence. “Our research suggests that we’ll be seeing the ‘fasten seatbelts’ sign turned on more often in the decades ahead.” AFP

EXCELLENCE IN BUSINESS AWARDS

BE PART OF BUSINESS SURVEY

L

ocal businesses are being encouraged to take part in the 12th Sunshine Coast Business Confidence Survey to provide a barometer of business sentiment in the region. The survey, which is run bi-annually, helps the Coast’s decision makers understand the collective views of businesses and enables them to make informed decisions when forward-planning. Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce president Ross Hepworth says the Coast is still quite dependent on tourism, which makes it largely a conf dence-driven economy. “It’s really important for businesses and larger organisations across the Coast to understand the nature of conf dence at any one time,” Hepworth says. With years of data collected through these surveys, he says the Coast has a strong trend line to map and compare business trends and conf dence.

HALL OF FAME POISED FOR EXPANSION

The survey questions have been compiled by Boardroom Business in conjunction with the Sunshine Coast Council Economic Development Unit. Hepworth says it has had increasing business support since its inception in 2008, with about 500 businesses taking part. The survey includes 10 multiple choice questions and takes a few minutes to f ll out. Businesses have until April 22 to complete the survey. Visit boardroombusiness.com.au/ sunshinecoast to take part.

BRAIDS BACK IN FASHION

W

himsical, romantic braids are a huge fashion trend for hair this year. Inspired by boho street style, this year’s braids are loose and messy. It’s a carefree yet elegant look that’s easy to achieve at home. Kristen Stewart showed off a free-spirited messy braid at the Kid’s Choice Awards in March. Adir Abergel created the style, a French braid that morphed into a f shtail. Abergel posted a how-to video on his Twitter page that showed the process involved. “You want it to look messy and kind of un-done,” says Abergel. “It’s a really, really easy style to recreate. Start with wave activating spray to enhance the hair’s natural texture. Messy and un-done is my signature style so after washing, let hair air dry a bit. Don’t use a blow dryer or anything. “Next thing is to grab a little bit of glossing cream, then rub it through the ends. Then very loosely take the

hair and start French braiding it. Start at the crown and keep the height. Once you’re a little way down, start doing the f shtail braid. “Take the end of each section and weave it in. Pull it over and follow it all the way to the end. Make sure the f shtail isn’t really perfect. Messy looks cool and hip and young.” Finish with a clear elastic rubber band and pull a few strands of hair out to frame the face. AAP

WHY DO WE HAVE EARWAX? Earwax lubricates the ear canal and protects the eardrum from dirt and foreign bodies. It f ghts also infections as it has some mild antibacterial components. Most of the time the ear is self-cleaning; cells from the centre of the eardrum travel all the way to the outer canal. During this slow and orderly migration, the cells take earwax and skin in its path from the eardrum to the ear opening, aided by jaw movement. Old wax is transported to the end of the ear canal and will eventually seep out. As we age, ear wax tends to become more dry and stiff and may tend to pile up in the ear canal rather than f ow out of it on the conveyor belt of migrating skin. A blockage of earwax can also be created by probing the ear with things such as cotton tips, bobby pins, twisted napkins, car keys…..These objects push the wax deeper in the ear.

If the ear wax accumulation does not dissolve, f ushing of the ear might be necessary or the wax build-up may need to be carefully removed by a General Practitioner or an Ear Nose and Throat Specialist.

Often the only thing that is needed is to soften the wax to allow the ear to clean itself. Wax drops may only be used if the ear drum is intact.

Additionally, cerumen and other debris in the ear canal can have a tremendous impact on hearing aid users. For more information visit www.fallsofsound.com.au

Cosy up living room sofas and chairs with plush throw pillows in different shapes, sizes and patterns. Comfy accessories add visual interest to your living room, and create a warm, inviting tone perfect for the season. If blankets and throws have been stored away, run them through the washing machine before putting them back in use. Make a bolder statement with a bright throw that contrasts with your sofa. Layering area rugs is an easy way to add colour and texture to f oors. Plus, the extra cushioning will ensure your feet avoid cold tile and hardwood f oors. Get your f replace ready for its seasonal debut. Have a professional clean it out and check it for leaks before you light the f rst f re.

COCKTAILS WITH FOOD IDEAL, SAYS CHEF

C

elebrity chef Colin Fassnidge has joined a growing group who argue cocktails are easier to match to food than wine. He says a cocktail’s ingredients can be changed to match or enhance the f avours on the plate, unlike wine, which is already made. “With a cocktail you can adjust to the actual dish,” says the owner of the two-hatted restaurant Four in Hand Dining Room in Sydney. “So say you’ve got pork. You can have a cinnamon cocktail or a vanilla cocktail and you can match it a lot easier than wine because you can isolate f avours.” Fassnidge will see this f rst-hand on May 17, when he takes part in the Noosa Food and Wine Festival’s Diageo Reserve World Class cocktail-matching dinner. Along with two other chefs – Wayd Bailey and Eric Pernoud – Fassnidge is creating two courses for the event and its 140 guests. Each dish will be paired with its own unique cocktail created by the world’s best bartender Tim Philips, who won top honours at the Diageo Reserve World Class cocktail competition in 2012. Philips keeps busy mixing drinks at his Sydney bar, Bulletin Place, and travelling the world talking

cocktails to the like-minded. Philips isn’t in the World Class competition this year, although just a few hours before the cocktail dinner, 12 bartenders will be vying for a place in the f nals by mixing drinks for attendees to the festival. Philips says the cocktail-matching dinner will come with its own challenges: “I [want to] make sure people walk away from this event going, ‘wow that was incredible’.” There’s also the logistic issue of serving around 900 cocktails in one night. Philips jokes that the chefs are “slack, basically” by comparison. “They’re only doing 280 dishes each, so it’s easy for them. They’re just going up to Noosa for a holiday.” Philips says the dinner is exciting

Irish chef Colin Fassnidge (left) and world champion bar tender Tim Philips because it’s a step in the right direction for the future. Cocktails are traditionally seen as a before- or after-dinner drink, but Philips envisages diners one day looking at a menu and ordering a main meal and a cocktail to accompany it.

“Restaurants in New York have water sommeliers, why shouldn’t we start looking at cocktails and spirits as a way of bringing out the best in our food?” The Noosa Food and Wine Festival runs from May 16-19. Visit noosafoodandwine.com.au. AAP

CRISPY, HEALTHY KALE CHIPS If you like spinach, you’ll love kale. It’s full of antioxidants, packed with vitamins and minerals and per calorie, it has more iron than beef and more calcium than milk. Kale is low in calories and has almost zero fat. A cup of raw kale contains around 33 calories plus large amounts of vitamin A, C, K, B6, calcium, potassium, copper, manganese and f bre.

SHOPPING LIST • 1 bunch kale • 2 tablespoons olive oil • Sea salt, for sprinkling

METHOD Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. With a knife, carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and centre rib and cut or tear into bite-sized pieces. Use a salad spinner to wash, then thoroughly dry the leaves using paper towels. Toss leaves in the olive oil and salt. Arrange the pieces on a baking tray lined with foil or baking paper. Bake until crisp but not brown around the edges, turning the leaves halfway through, about 10 minutes. Serve as f nger food.

ABUSE COMMISSION

BEGINS

PREVIEW The royal commission into institutional responses to child sex abuse will be a long and painful road towards justice. WORDS Patrick Caruana

or years they waited. They waited to be heard, they waited to be believed, they waited for compensation and they waited for justice. For many victims of institutional child sex abuse, the wait was too long, and they died in anonymous silence – a lot of them by their own hand. But for their families, and for the survivors, the

opening of a royal commission was a landmark. The outpouring of emotion immediately after the brief hearing was testament to the fact that so many victims never thought the day would come. Victim advocacy group Broken Rites president Chris MacIsaac says the group was f ooded with calls once the brief hearing f nished. “People were just elated that this royal commission is getting off the ground,” she says.

Their f rst priority is to hear and validate those stories. Only then can they start to f gure out the best way forward Cathy Humphreys

The chair of the Royal Commission into child sex abuse Justice Peter McClellan (centre) looking on as Counsel assisting the commission Gail Furness, SC speaks during the f rst day of the Royal Commission last Wednesday. “They have waited so long for justice, and they have had to endure being ignored and not believed. “Finally, someone is listening.” Commission chairman Justice Peter McClellan laid bare the staggering task confronting the commission when he told of the more than 5000 people wanting to have their stories heard. MacIsaac says that f gure could be much higher. “Once a few people have the courage to come forward, other victims will take heart from that and I think you will see it snowball from there,” she says. Justice McClellan says the fundamental aim of the commission is to examine the institutional

responses to sexual abuse, and to explore ways in which wrongs could be made right. The commission’s f rst task, however, is to listen. Justice McClellan says it will be the commission’s sombre duty to hear thousands of abuse stories from around the country in both public and private hearings. “Part of the task given to us ... is to bear witness, on behalf of the nation, to the abuse and consequential trauma inf icted on many people who have suffered sexual abuse as children,” he says. “There are many examples through history of the importance of this process, especially where an event has provoked great moral outrage.” University of Melbourne social work expert Cathy Humphreys says listening to victims is the only way the commission can truly understand the depth of the issue. “Their f rst priority is to hear and validate those stories,” Humphreys says. “Only then can they start to f gure out the best way forward.” Humphreys says it is too early to anticipate what f ndings might come from the commission, but it might take its lead from a Victorian parliamentary inquiry already underway. “From what has already been said, it looks like the two inquiries will be quite complementary,” she says. Humphreys described the f rst hearing last week

r e t r e v n I Dual Track

as a “momentous day”, and says Justice McClellan didn’t disappoint in his half-hour opening address. “It was a very sensitive opening which set the clear parameters and limits for this commission,” she says. It is important to note that the commission cannot and will not prosecute individuals, and nor will it determine matters of compensation. She says Justice McClellan’s announcement that notices to provide documents has been served upon several institutions, including the Catholic Church, is a f ag of the commission’s intention to use its subpoena powers if necessary. The church is not the only institution in the commission’s sights. Government, private sector and not-for-prof t bodies will be examined, including churches, schools, scouting groups, sporting clubs and orphanages. But those hoping for a speedy outcome will be disappointed. Justice McClellan says the commission is unlikely to meet its interim report deadline of June next year or conclude its work before 2015. But after decades of suffering, victims have become accustomed to waiting. “Some will get frustrated at the time that this will take,” MacIsaac says. “But after 10, 20 or 30 years of waiting, what’s another couple of years?” It seems that this time the wait may be worthwhile.

And that’s probably true of Mazda’s new people-mover – the CX-9 – which has adopted the company’s new corporate face in its just-released updated model. Truth is, not a huge amount has

changed, even though the CX-9 looks markedly different from the model it replaces. And that’s not really such a bad thing. The biggest member of the Mazda family wasn’t particularly in need of a revamp, even though some parts were starting to show their age a bit. Mazda has gone beyond the typical mid-model update, however, offering some new technology on

the already well-equipped CX-9. A package of gadgets that Mazda calls i-Activesense includes a welter of high-end safety features – from Forward Obstruction Warning to Blind Spot Monitoring; Lane Departure Warning and High Beam Control. Unfortunately, this new technology is available only on the high-end Grand Touring model – and not on our lesser-equipped test vehicle – the

entry-level $44,000 Classic – so we’re unable to tell you about it f rst-hand. But even the base model impressed us with its all-round comfort and driveability. This latest CX-9 will be offered with a choice of front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive with three trim levels – Classic, Luxury (about $52,000) and the bells-and-whistles Grand Touring, tipping the scales at $63,828. The Classic is offered in frontwheel-drive only. Along with a full array of safety gear, including eight airbags, standard equipment includes three-zone climate control airconditioning; auto wipers and headlights, power windows and mirrors; remote keyless entry, Bluetooth and, importantly for these big family wagons, a reversing camera. Stump up the extra $8-grand for the Luxury model and you can add 20-inch alloys, power heated mirrors, sunroof, satellite navigation, leather trim, electric seats plus

a high-end Bose audio system. All-wheel-drive adds another $5000 to the Luxury model; while the f agship Grand Touring, at $63,828, adds bi-Xenon headlamps, remote power tailgate, front-and-rear parking sensors plus the iActivesense safety package as standard. Beyond the gadgetry, though, the CX-9’s basic running gear remains largely unchanged. That means a smooth-revving, powerful and responsive 3.7-litre V6 powerplant and a no-fuss six-speed auto – which combine to give the CX-9 one of the better drivetrains you’ll f nd in a seven-seater. Of course, there’s a price to pay for its impressive performance – the CX-9 can’t match the fuel-eff ciency of lesser-powered rivals like the class-leading Honda Odyssey. We drove the big Mazda primarily in city-based conditions for our week-long test and ended up with

average consumption in the midteens – hardly disastrous for such a big, practical machine but thirsty enough to put a dent in most family budgets. That thirst drops dramatically on the open road, where the CX-9’s long legs and smooth power are seen to better advantage. Its off cial combined thirst is 11 litres per 100 kilometres, which makes it ideal for those long family holidays. Families will also love the sheer volume of its interior, which is enhanced by clever design features

Families will also love the sheer volume of its interior, which is enhanced by clever design features

such as the middle-row seats which can individually slide back or forward, adding a lot of f exibility to seating layout. The only downside is that the tracks the seats run on could become a magnet for lollies, biscuit crumbs and all those other things that mysteriously f nd their way to the f oor of family vehicles. You might need a good vacuum cleaner to keep the seats sliding smoothly. The CX-9 will accommodate seven occupants – at least f ve of those adults if the need arises, plus the two who can clamber into the reasonably roomy third row. Access to the back seats is relatively effortless, too, and with all seats occupied there’s still a decent amount of cargo space remaining for shopping or luggage. Because the rear seats fold independently, it affords impressive f exibility in the potential mix of passenger/cargo space at your disposal.

So, what of the new look? Well, the CX-9 has adopted the ‘Kodo – spirit of motion’ design cues which work so well on its smaller SUV sibling, the CX-5, as well as on the new Mazda6 sedan. I’m not convinced the CX-9 is

quite as attractive or sleek-looking as the model it replaces – its bulk doesn’t sit quite as comfortably with those slinky Kodo curves. It’s proof that change can sometimes be for change’s sake. But at least it’s new, I guess.

GOLF A TRUE CHAMPION An international jury of motoring experts named the new Volkswagen Golf World Car of the Year 2013 at the New York International Auto Show. The sought-after prize is another milestone in a growing list of awards for the Golf. Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft Board of Management chair Martin Winterkorn says the Volkswagen team is delighted with the Golfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent global win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To win this award again shows that the Golf is and remains in a class of its own all around the world,â&#x20AC;? Winterkorn says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This car sets new benchmarks again and again, not least in terms

of eff ciency and environmental credentials.â&#x20AC;? The Golf has been an established feature of the global motoring scene for more than 30 years. This latest win marked the 17th award for the seventh generation of the Golf since its launch. Last month it won European Car of the Year. Other accolades include The Best Cars of 2013, Auto Trophy 2012 and the Top Gear â&#x20AC;&#x201C; All The Car Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll Ever Need award. The World Car of the Year jury is made up of 66 journalists from 23 countries, who rate new cars appearing on the world market as part of their daily reporting work for millions of drivers and car enthusiasts.

HEAR A SIREN, STAY CALM

T

“It’s important to be alert to what’s going on around you,” Tucker says. “Even the most level-headed among us can experience momentary panic on hearing a siren, particularly if in gridlocked traff c.” He says the most important thing is for motorists to keep a clear head and identify where the emergency vehicle is. “If traff c is in motion, slow down and move to the left where possible – unless that places you directly in the path of the emergency vehicle.” Tucker says motorists found to be obstructing an emergency service vehicle can be f ned and are obliged, as much as possible, to help the emergency vehicle carve a clear route through the traff c. “By staying calm, exercising common sense and making all reasonable efforts to move out of the way, you’ll minimise risk to yourself and other road users, and allow the emergency vehicle to [get] to its destination as swiftly as possible.”

he RACQ has put out a reminder to motorists urging them to be aware of emergency vehicles when they are travelling on the roads this weekend. With the school holidays coming to an end, traff c is expected to build up as holiday-makers head home. Knowing what to do if drivers f nd themselves in the path of an emergency vehicle can help save lives. RACQ Senior Road Safety advisor Joel Tucker says it takes only one panicked motorist to block the path of police, paramedics or f re f ghters.

Holden has Siri Eyes Holden has confirmed the Barina CDX is the first car in Australia to offer full Siri Eyes Free Integration. Operating via the Barina CDX Holden MyLink infotainment system, customers with a compatible iPhone running iOS 6 can direct Siri to perform a number of tasks while they keep their eyes safely on the road and their hands on the wheel. Eyes Free integration keeps the device’s screen from lighting up, deterring drivers from looking at their phone screen. Drivers of the Barina CDX can use Siri in Eyes Free mode to make voice-activated, hands-free calls to contacts on their iPhone, listen to or compose and send an iMessage or text message to a phone number or anyone in saved Contacts and access the calendar to add appointments, among other things. Siri is available in Beta only and requires internet access so drivers need to ensure they have appropriate data plans with their mobile provider.

Safety still Volvo’s mission Volvo is continuing to push the boundaries when it comes to motoring safety, presenting a world-first innovation at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show last month. Volvo Cars’ latest commitment to safety, Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection, is an enhancement of the present detection and auto brake technology. But its added functionality detects and automatically brakes for cyclists swerving out in front of the car. Volvo Cars senior technical specialist safety Lotta Jakobsson says several studies document that Volvo’s collision-avoidance systems lead to signif cant accident reductions in real-life traff c. “By continuously introducing new preventive and protective systems, we keep moving towards our aim that by 2020 no one should be injured or killed in a new Volvo,” Jakobsson says.

THE FINE PRINT PREVIEW In the second part of MPP’s two-part retirement feature, we tell you all about the costs of buying into a retirement village. WORDS Richard Andrews

etirement villages are a lifestyle choice, and that lifestyle comes with a variety of fees and charges payable when you buy, sell or live in a retirement community. It pays to read the f ne print, but here are the charges you need to know about. Deposit: Once a purchaser has selected a retirement home, they will need to hold the property by leaving a deposit with the vendor. The deposit is typically a notional amount of around $1,000 to $5,000 and should be refundable in the event that either party withdraws from the contract. Placing a deposit on a property may not necessarily reserve that property exclusively, however. Some operators take several deposits on one property and sell the home to the f rst buyer who can come up with the cash. Ingoing contribution: A fee unique to the DMF (deferred management fee) schemes outlined last week is what is known as an ingoing contribution. This is the amount payable under the contract to secure the right to reside in the retirement village. It is a one-off payment and not a recurrent fee. Contract preparation costs: Another charge at purchase is the apportionment of legal and other expenses incurred by the village owner in the drafting and execution of purchase contracts. Stamp duty: Stamp duty will usually be applicable when you purchase a unit in a freehold strata-titled community. GST: GST is payable on the freehold purchase of newly built dwellings only. There is no GST payable on DMF contracts. Personal services (or services) charge: If a resident in a village wishes to purchase additional services from the operator, such as cleaning,

laundry or meals, then the cost for this service is negotiated directly between the resident and the service provider, which could be either the village operator or an external services supplier. Refurbishment costs: Another charge is for refurbishment costs. It is not a fee as such, but an obligation for the resident to fund the refurbishment of the unit back to a ‘marketable’ condition upon exit. A marketable condition means the same general condition as when they f rst moved in and comparable to the other units in the complex. The operator would typically project manage the refurbishment, however the resident should take care to ask for a quote before they commence work. Unless it is stipulated as such in the purchase contract, residents are under no obligation to use the village operator for these works and could organise the work themselves. In practice however, the village operator would do many of these refurbishments in a year and would be expected to complete the works in the most time and cost effective way. Retirees are usually gentle with their residence so it is unlikely that the cost of any refurbishment will be signif cant. Unless your purchase contract stipulates otherwise, the level of refurbishment is a subject for negotiation between the resident and village operator. Sales commission: Another fee at exit may be a sales commission paid to the selling agent, or the refunding of marketing expenses. Larger villages typically have their own sales agents located in a sales off ce on site, however unless the contract states otherwise, a resident should be free to appoint any agent to sell the unit. General services fee: The next fee is a general services fee or village fee. This is a regular fee charged to each

resident for the funding of costs such as grounds and maintenance, insurance, security, etc. Obviously the more services and facilities offered by a village, the higher the charge is likely to be. Conversely, large villages with many units are able to spread the costs over more residents and the fee is likely to be lower. A resident is obliged to continue paying the fee until such time as the unit is re-sold, up to a period of nine months, at which time the liability to pay the fee passes to the village owner. Body corporate fee: The body corporate fee is similar to the general services fee in what it covers, but is applicable to strata-titled freehold properties only. Deferred management (or exit) fee: The DMF is an annual fee charged for each year of occupancy, capped at a set number of years, and calculated as a percentage of either the original purchase price or subsequent re-sale value of the licence. The fee is accrued annually at each anniversary of the resident’s commencement at the village, and paid out to the village owner from the proceeds of the re-sale of the unit. The fee varies between villages and even within villages, making it almost impossible to compare different villages. Share of capital gain on sale: Under deferred management fee schemes, residents may be obliged to share or entirely forfeit any capital gains with the village owner on the re-sale of their unit. Generally, if the fee is calculated on the exit price, there should be limited or no capital gains payable. If it is calculated on the purchase price, the resident gets the benef t of knowing what the fee will be up front, but will likely have to share any capital gains made on re-sale with the owner. Capital gains are realised when a resident leaves and the unit is re-sold. Upon re-sale, the village owner returns the sale proceeds to the previous resident after subtracting the deferred management fee and their contracted share of the capital gain. Sharing any capital gain with the village owner is generally only applicable under contracts where the DMF is calculated as a percentage of the purchase price and not as a percentage of the re-sale exit value. However, there are no laws governing this and village operators are free to choose whichever structure they prefer. M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW.C OM .A U

CLASSIFIEDS LEASE RENEWALS

Loretta’s RENTAL

WRAP UP

Lease renewals made easy! The lease renewal process should be easy and streamlined for all involved. Your agent should know how important it is for both the landlord and the leaseholder to secure a further term. This gives everyone peace of mind. In my experience it is so important to ensure that you are not rushing around at the last minute getting leases renewed and that you’re not allowing leases to expire. This is really poor time management and also provides no security for either the landlord or the leaseholder? Starting a lease renewal process 3 months prior to the lease expiring is essential for the professional and proactive management of the lease renewal. This ensures that firstly a further term is secured for both the landlord and leaseholder plenty of time prior to the lease expiring. Secondly, this guarantees that the landlord has plenty of time to secure a new tenant should the tenant not be renewing for a further term. Thirdly, this allows enough time for the agent to provide ample notice (2 months notice in writing) for the tenant to vacate should the landlord not wish to renew. Finally, this allows ample time for any rental increases to be negotiated. With this tight rental market it makes sense for your agent to be organised, demand has increased and availability has decreased, following this simple process ensures your maintaining quality tenants and achieving optimum results. Ask your agent how they are handling your lease renewal process. Until next time……

TAURUS Apr 21-May 21 Friendships with females are favoured, as you enjoy the company of like-minded souls. But avoid getting carried away when you go shopping, as you’ll feel the need to indulge yourself.

GEMINI May 22-Jun 21 Time-poor twins – with Mercury still reversing through your career zone, take the time to doublecheck all appointments today. Otherwise there’ll be mix-ups and mayhem.

CANCER Jun 22-Jul 23 The harder you work, the better the day will be. Don’t be a lone crab though. Others are happy to help – all you have to do is ask. Also pay close attention to your dreams.

LEO Jul 24-Aug 23 With Mercury reversing through your joint finances zone, it’s not a good day to initiate deals or sign important contracts. Be patient and wait until a more opportune time.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 Watch what you say, as Mercury, your ruling planet, is still in retrograde motion. Careless slips and thoughtless quips will land you in trouble so think carefully before you speak.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 Business deals are favoured, Libra – but make sure you do your homework and read all the fine print first. Whether you are at home or work, put time aside to socialise today.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 With six planets lighting up your creativity zone, it’s time to express yourself, Scorpio. So connect with your inner muse as you write, act, paint, play music or sing up a storm.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 Family members are demanding your time and attention at the moment, Sagittarius. Make sure you communicate clearly, or there’ll be problems and misunderstandings.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 With Mercury still reversing through your communication and travel zone, expect dramas involving cars, computers and all forms of communication. Group activities are favoured.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 You’re keen to move forward but make sure you’ve done all the reality checks – especially when it comes to money. Balance the budget before you start splashing cash around.

PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 The moon, Mercury and Venus join up in your sign, which bodes well for most of the day’s activities. You’re feeling generous, but don’t promise more than you can realistically deliver.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

God grant me patience, and I want it now! Anyway, it looks like our patience is about to be rewarded with a bump in swell, some early offshore winds and the perfect tides for an early-morning assault. GAME ON. Three to four foot is predicted with Sunshine on Sunday. With all the bad weather some little gems of banks have appeared. I cannot tell you where they are as that would be unfair. But seek and thou shall f nd, f nd and thou shall have an epic time! Woohoo, bring on the weekend, and remember grommets, be kind to the old guys in the water. They’re only cranky because they wish they were young and f t again.

FISHING REPORT

with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: Mud crabs are working out of their holes and moving into deeper water at the mouths of Eudlo and Petrie creeks. Jew, estuary cod and mangrove jack are taking live bait in the Cod Hole area of the Maroochy and Mooloolaba rivers. SURF: Bream and f athead are off the Cotton Tree retaining walls with well-weighted plastics working f ne. Look for sand whiting along Maroochy Beach on the rising tide using pippies and worms. OFFSHORE: Moses perch, maori cod and sweetlip are taking squid at The Blinker with dawn and dusk the best times. Barwon Banks and wide Caloundra are returning cobia, snapper, pearlies and some big sharks. FRESHWATER: Check out Lake McDonald for bass and Mary River cod on lures trolled along the weed drop-off with 10 to 15 feet favoured. A change of colour can be all it takes. There are plenty of shrimps in Lake Baroon with bass and jew feeding in the cooler part of the day – plastics jigged off the bottom are working well.
