hey say the hardest job you’ll ever do is that of being a parent. I don’t know who ‘they’ are, but I have to agree with them. Yeah sure, some parents make it look so easy, and no doubt there are people who are naturals, who breeze through the role with minimum fuss and no stress, but most of us have moments, days, weeks, when we wonder if we are up to the task. The good stuff, for me, far outweighs the bad – the younger Pearson is one of the funniest people I have met, he is affectionate and clever, and is an absolute joy most of the time (especially when he’s asleep). But the challenge is when he doesn’t do as he’s told, when he questions my authority, won’t eat his dinner, loses my keys… Anyway, I think most parents know what I mean, so this week Leigh Robshaw, herself

DILEMMA PREVIEW Authoritarian old-school discipline is being replaced by a gentler approach. So does the new way work, or is it creating a generation who has no respect for authority? WORDS Leigh Robshaw
n days gone by, when children misbehaved, they were smacked. There was no debating how it would affect their self-esteem and no one looked at parents disapprovingly if they slapped their kids in the supermarket aisle. But somewhere between gen X and gen Y, we decided it was not acceptable to smack kids anymore, leaving many parents at a loss as to how to effectively discipline their children. Sweden banned smacking in 1979, New Zealand banned it in 2007, along with 33 other nations. Smacking is not illegal in Australia, as long as it is considered ‘reasonable chastisement’ or ‘reasonable correction’. Corporal punishment is still legal in Queensland schools, though it’s no longer part of school policy, so don’t worry about your kids copping six of the best if they muck up at school. In Australia today, the subject of how to best discipline children – particularly when it comes to smacking – is a guaranteed barbecue stopper. When time out, conf scating toys and counting backwards from 10 fail to produce results, it’s easy to take our frustrations out on our kids and give them a good whack. But the big question is, does it cause long-term psychological or emotional damage? According to a new study published in the journal Parenting: Science
[ 6 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ M AY 24, 2013
and Practice, not necessarily. The study was conducted among a group of Mexican-American adolescents by Dr Miguelina Germán of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. She found that the painful effects of harsh discipline were mitigated if the child had a loving mother, or if the perception of maternal warmth was present. When a child felt loved by his or her mother, harsh discipline was found to have no correlation with antisocial behaviour. The theory is that the underlying belief that their parents love them, protect children from feeling rejected, even when harshly disciplined. Germán noted that strict discipline was common in Latino culture and that the study showed it was not likely to lead children to become antisocial teenagers if they believed their parents’ behaviour came from “a good place”. Sunshine Coast mother Karen* has two children aged six and two. She was smacked as a child and smacks her own children, though she’s learning new ways to deal with conf ict. Recently separated, one of the conf icts in her relationship with her children’s father was discipline. “We hadn’t talked about it when we had kids and then it was like, OK, we’ve both been smacked so maybe that’s the best way of doing it,” she says. “Then I started reading different websites and books and M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW.C OM .A U

opening my eyes up to different ways of disciplining kids, rather than physically. But if we tried time out and it didn’t work the f rst or second time, then we’d just go back to smacking. “I don’t think the kids have been affected by the smacking,” she says. “They’re not aggressive and they’re pretty good kids. I would never say at any stage we’ve belted them. It has been a slap on the bottom and that’s it.” Karen’s parents look after her kids one or two days a week and she has asked that they don’t smack her children, preferring if they reason with them or try distraction. “Dad was def nitely a disciplinarian and mum’s favourite line was, ‘wait until your father gets home’,” Karen says. “Mum and Dad disciplined us how they’d been disciplined. They didn’t have books and websites. They were just told you smack your child and that’s the end of it. They look back on it now and mum often says she regrets she did use smacking. When she’s looking after her grandchildren, she says ‘I can’t believe I smacked you when you were young’. They didn’t know any other way.” Sunshine Coast clinical psychologist Dr Bob Jacobs runs The Parenting Centre in Maroochydore and Maleny, and is author of the book Perfect Parents, Perfect Children. After 30 years of working with children and parents, he believes punishment is not an inevitable part of parenting and that smacking can indeed create long-term problems for children.
“Children learn from what their parents do, and if we use smacking, what we are teaching our children is that a way to solve problems is by physically hurting someone who’s smaller than you,” he says. “To me, as a children’s advocate, I think there’s a children’s rights issue. This has been recognised by the (UNICEF) Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which Australia is a signatory.
Dr Bob Jacobs “If you watch children being smacked, their teeth or f sts will be clenched, or their body will tense up, which is what happens when an older person is inf icting pain on you and you can’t do anything about it,” say Jacobs. “It leads to feelings of helplessness, which can lead to anxiety and depression. “If children are loved, they believe they deserve to be loved; if they’re ignored, they believe they deserve to be ignored; if they’re hit and hurt, they believe they deserve to be hit and hurt. To me the self-esteem ramif cations are huge.”
Jacobs stresses that most parents today were raised traditionally and are generally doing the best they can. He says they shouldn’t feel bad or guilty, but should endeavour to f nd more effective ways of achieving parenting success, which involves changing their attitude towards their children. “Children are separate human beings,” he says. “We don’t own them; their journey is separate from
parenting is aimed at developing children who are joyful, secure and have strong, healthy self-esteem and who feel happy with the world just the way it is. They don’t always feel that sense of anxiety that things need to be different. “Children who are parented differently might be a little more out there, more likely to question authority, a little more messy, a little louder, a little bit more wild, and I think that’s a beautiful thing because it’s part of the essence of who we are as Children are separate human human beings and I think it gets stif ed. beings.

<from previous page Mutual respect between parents and children is something local mum Cecilie Shiotz knows well. Raised by Danish parents who never used punishment, she is now raising her sons, aged four and 11, as a single mother without ever having punished them, saying smacking is unheard of in Denmark. “I just use talking and honestly, discipline is not something that’s even come up,” she says. “My four year-old does have tantrums and I talk about what’s going on, and he expresses what’s going on for him, and we just talk it through. “I think that maybe some parents use smacking or punishment out of fear. For example, if a child is having a tantrum, although it can be uncomfortable for me during the tantrum, it doesn’t freak me out, so I don’t react in fear. I’m aware that the child is expressing something so I listen to that. People comment that they’re easy kids, but I do think it’s a result of me always talking to them. I don’t think they’ve come from an easy situation, particularly being on
I think that maybe some parents use smacking out of fear. If a child is having a tantrum, it doesn’t freak ut me out Cecilie Shiotz my own, but the communication has always been consistent.” Having lived between Australia and Denmark, Shiotz says the Danish have evolved past the kinds of parenting struggles and schooling issues we have here. “I do observe the difference, more in young people over there – their conf dence is amazingly different, especially with young people leaving school and entering the workforce. I think that comes from the difference of upbringing and schooling. Discipline is not really a concept over there. It’s just
about mutual respect. It was hard for me going through school here, knowing it didn’t have to be like that and it’s hard for me sending my kids to school knowing it doesn’t have to be like that.” Shiotz was allowed to eat whatever she wanted as a child, and affords her own children the same privilege. She says if they want to eat chocolate for breakfast they can, but because they have that freedom, they naturally choose healthy foods. Many parents would no doubt feel incredulous reading about children who are not disciplined
and can eat whatever they want. Doesn’t it create spoilt brats who lack respect for authority? Not according to Jacobs. “I think the myth of the spoilt brat is one of those things that perpetuates traditional parenting no matter how dysfunctional it is,” he says. “We have a myth that if children aren’t controlled and whipped into shape, something bad is going to happen. They’re heading in a bad direction and it’s our job not to let that happen. My belief is contrary to that; I believe children are perfect. “I think our society really believes if you give someone an inch they’ll take a mile. I believe if you give someone an inch, they’ll give you back an inch; or they might give you f ve inches. If we believe in the goodness and perfection of our children, they’ll believe it too. Parenting is the way we change the world. We get a whole lot of people who believe in themselves and their goodness and we see a whole lot of things change.” *name changed to protect privacy

Does your current f nancial adviser tailor a portfolio that will meet your income needs now & into the future?
his weekend’s You Can Heal Yourself Healthy Lifestyle Expo will kick off with the symbolic planting of a peace tree in Caloundra today. The tree will be planted and dedicated to the local community by Vivek Puri Ji, the disciple of world-renowned Swamiji, founder of Yoga in Daily Life. Heal Yourself Expo organiser Wayne Pina-Roozemond says Senator Claire Moore will represent the Prime Minister at the ceremony, which will take place in the garden in front of The Events Centre at 11am. Sunshine Coast Council has provided a Eumundi quandong for the planting. “The signif cance of a peace tree is to remind people to head towards peace,” Pina-Roozemond says. “It can be a bit of a struggle but it’s a visual reminder.” More than 60 exhibitors will be on hand to educate and inform
people throughout the expo and seminars, workshops and demonstrations will be among the activities, including six keynote speakers talking about natural health, f tness, sustainability and organic living. Vivek Puri Ji will hold two workshops – The Science of Yoga and Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times. The expo will run from 8.30am to 5.30pm on Saturday and 8.30am to 4pm on Sunday at the Caloundra Events Centre. Tickets are $10 per adult.

AGED CARE ON THE AGENDA A retirement village planned for Kawana Forest is set to include additional aged-care facilities following a development approval by the Sunshine Coast Council. IRT Group’s chief executive off cer Nieves Murray says plans for the Kawana Forest site include a 60-bed care centre and more than 100 community villas, as well as plans to introduce in-home care operations to the region. “The new Kawana Forest community’s design will complement the surrounding environment and is near local services and amenities, including the new health precinct hub where two hospitals are under construction,” Murray says. UDIA president Andrew Stevens says the IRT Group’s commitment to launch into the Sunshine Coast is another example of the green shoots of recovery the Coast’s economy is experiencing.
“This development will provide further employment opportunities on the Sunshine Coast in both construction and continuing health care services,” Stevens says. Councillor Rick Baberowski says the retirement village is a welcome development at Kawana Forest and the inclusion of the aged-care facility is a fantastic outcome, in keeping with the council’s principles for positive ageing. “Retirees living at the village will have the option of independent living villas or aged care facilities that will provide additional levels of service and care,” Baberowski says.
Red roses for his lady Ninety-two-year-old Coast war veteran Wally Gibbons has given the love of his life red roses for their anniversary every year since their marriage. The romantic, who celebrated his 70th anniversary with his wife Freda last week, cheekily says pansies would have been cheaper. The couple met at a barn dance in Brisbane one week before he departed for active service in the Middle East in World War II. “Another digger and I knew we wouldn’t have the chance to do anything like that for a while so we decided to go to a dance and that’s where I met Freda,” he says. “I was with a group and saw this pretty girl across the circle and asked her to dance.” Freda wrote to him while he was overseas and much to his surprise he received the letters. During a week of leave in May 1942 he looked Freda up and asked her to marry him. It was a year later when he returned for another week of
Freda and Wally Gibbons celebrating their 70th wedding anniversary. Right: on their wedding day leave that they were married. Today, Wally still looks out for his mates and each Friday he visits one of four local nursing homes to spend the afternoon with other retired Australian troops. He plays an important part in supporting Maroochy RSL, volunteering his time to the Maroochydore Sub Branch, which he has been a member of for nearly 20 years.

Helping girls be happier What started as a desire to help young girls overcome the angst and emotion of their teenage years has become a national business for a Coast woman. Marina Passalaris spent 14 years working as a make-up artist for some of the world’s top modelling agencies and found her role often involved giving mentoring and advice to young models. “It’s an incredibly superf cial world and the girls weren’t being equipped emotionally,” Passalaris says. The experience led her to develop Beautiful Minds, a course to help girls work through issues such as conf dence, self-esteem, body image, friendship, fashion, smoking, nutrition and bullying among other things. “It’s predominantly helping teenage girls navigate their teen years.” She says it focuses heavily on life skills and helps the girls to build conf dence. Passalaris started the course on the Coast about eight years ago and has since moved the business to Sydney, where she has expanded it to run in
SELECTED FABRICS IN-HOUSE FABRIC RANGE Includes Rollers, Panels & Romans
nine locations around Australia. She has also written a book, Beautiful Minds, a journey of selfdiscovery for teenage girls, which has been released in the US, UK and Australia. She has received emails from girls in America and the UK and says the issues teenage girls face are the same everywhere. Passalaris says despite moving to Sydney, the Coast is still her favourite place to run courses. The next Sunshine Coast course will be held in July. For more information visit beautifulminds.com.au.

TIRED P-PLATERS RECIPE FOR DISASTER
oung P-platers are less able to cope with tiredness than older drivers and even a little sleep deprivation can cause a crash, according to an Australian study. Sleepiness is associated with lapses in attention, slowed reaction time and poor judgment, says lead researcher Professor Alexandra Martiniuk. “Young adults are less able to tolerate reductions in sleep compared with older people,” she says. “They also often haven’t fully mastered driving skills. It’s a dangerous combination.” She says six hours of sleep is not enough for young drivers. “It doesn’t take drastic reductions to increase crash risk.” The study, published in JAMA Paediatrics, examines the association between sleep and motor vehicle crashes in more than 20,000 newly licensed drivers aged 17 to 24. Tired drivers have diff culty regulating their emotions and display increased aggression and risky behaviour. These are “magnif ed by alcohol consumption”, says Martiniuk, who is from the George Institute for Global Health and the University of Sydney.
Brian Cox announces Australian tour
“Driving is the riskiest activity this age group engages in. With work, study and social commitments, especially on weekends, it is easy to miss out on the extra hours of sleep,” she says. The researchers say weekend sleep deprivation puts young drivers at greater risk of having a car crash. There is also an increased risk of single-vehicle accidents in which the vehicle runs off the road. “There is an urgent need for education campaigns targeting young drivers, especially newly licensed drivers,” Martiniuk says. Senior author Professor Rebecca Ivers, of The George Institute and the University of Sydney, says proactively managing sleeping habits is crucial. “We hope the f ndings of this study will raise awareness in the community and among policy makers about the specif c risks for young drivers,” says Prof Ivers, a member of the NSW Road Safety Advisory Council. Access to public transport, rest strategies, road design and avoiding night driving are all important considerations. Australian data shows that 60 per cent of young driver deaths happen at night.

Science poster boy Brian Cox will tour Australia later this year. The British particle physicist, TV presenter and former rock star will bring his stage show Brian Cox: An Evening of Scientif c Phenomena to Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Canberra and Melbourne in August. Cox’s interactive show will be hosted by ABC radio presenter FEATUREFLASH / SHUTTERSTOCK.COM Adam Spencer, and will highlight his scientif c knowledge and charisma. “Live events conducted by Brian Cox are a wonderment of an entirely new genre – his experiments, audience interactivity, stunning visuals and totally engaging manner leaves audiences enraptured, engaged, informed and occasionally besotted by him,” BBC Worldwide says. Cox enjoyed some fame in the 1990s as the keyboard player for pop band D:Ream, but he is best known for his presenting roles on a number of BBC science programs, including Horizon and Wonders of the Universe. Britain’s best-known naturalist and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough hailed Cox as his natural successor. AAP

APPLE MARKS 50 BILLIONTH APP WITH PRIZE
pple has announced that the number of miniprograms downloaded from its App Store has blasted past the 50 billion milestone, and celebrated the moment with a $US10,000 (about $10,200) prize. The California-based maker of iPads, iPhones, iPods and Mac computers said last week that it gave a $US10,000 App Store gift card to a US man from Ohio who downloaded the 50 billionth app – a free word game called Say the Same Thing. “We’re absolutely f oored to cross this milestone in less than f ve years,” Apple senior vice president of internet software and services Eddy Cue says. “The App Store completely transformed how people use their mobile devices and created a thriving app ecosystem that has paid out over nine billion dollars to developers.” People are downloading mini-
programs from the App Store at an average rate of 800 per second. Apple opened the virtual doors of its online App Store in July of 2008 with 500 apps for the company’s coveted mobile gadgets. The online store is now stocked with more than 850,000 apps for iPhones, iPads, or iPod touch devices. “The App Store has been integral in getting us into the hands of millions of iOS users and has transformed our business,” said Elizabeth Francis, chief marketing off cer at designer fashion f ash-sale website Gilt.

US report denounces anti-Muslim sentiment The United States has denounced what it calls a rising tide of both anti-Muslim and anti-Jewish sentiment around the world. It has urged all nations to ensure freedom of religion. In a wide-ranging annual report on religious freedom, the State Department voiced alarm at growing attacks against minority groups and painted a bleak picture of nations such as China, Iran, Myanmar, North Korea and Saudi Arabia. Secretary of State John Kerry, while acknowledging that the US record was not perfect, called religious freedom a “universal value” as he presented the report. “The freedom to profess and practice one’s faith, to believe or not to believe or to change one’s beliefs, that is a birthright of every human being,” Kerry says. “I urge all countries, especially those identif ed in this report, to take action now to safeguard this fundamental freedom.” Kerry announced the appointment
of Ira Foreman, who served as President Barack Obama’s campaign outreach director to Jewish voters, to f ll the State Department position of special envoy to combat anti-Semitism. The report said anti-Semitism was rising in the media of Egypt and Venezuela, where failed presidential candidate Henrique Capriles has Jewish ancestry. It also pointed to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s remarks questioning the extent of the Holocaust. “Anti-Muslim rhetoric and actions were clearly on the rise, particularly in Europe and Asia,” the State Department report, which covered 2012, says. Muslims faced new restrictions in 2012 in countries which banned face-covering religious attire. AFP

reasurer Wayne Swan recently handed down the 2013 federal budget, his sixth delivery of the economic blueprint for Australia’s future. Although this is an election year there is little in the way of voter incentives due to the estimated $19.4 billion cash def cit for this f nancial year. The f nancial markets haven’t appeared too concerned about the changes announced. But there are many issues that will affect our readers and we touch on a few of these here. Of particular note is the Medicare levy increasing by 0.5 per cent to two per cent per annum of taxable income from July 1, 2014 to

help fund DisabilityCare Australia. There are numerous changes to the superannuation system – unfortunately governments can’t seem to leave this alone. One positive for some saving for retirement is an increase in the concessional contribution cap to $35,000 per annum from July 1, 2013 for people aged 60 and over, and from July 1, 2014 for those aged 50 and over. For those already retired the minimum pension drawdown requirements will increase from July 1. For example, a person aged 65 will be required to draw a pension of f ve per cent per annum (up from 3.75 per cent). In addition, all earnings on assets supporting superannuation income streams from July 1, 2014 will be tax free only up to $100,000 per annum per member. Earnings above this amount will generally be taxed at 15 per cent with some special rules in relation to capital gains. There were also a couple of announcements made in relation to Centrelink payments. From January 1, 2015 the normal deeming rules will apply to new superannuation income streams commenced after January 1, 2015. All pensions commenced before this date will be grandfathered and the existing rules will continue to apply. Also, the government is proposing to offer a means test exemption to age pensioners who want to downsize their family home. To qualify, the home must have been owned for at least 25 years and at least 80 per cent of the excess proceeds (up to $200,000) must be deposited into a special account. The funds and interest will be exempt from the pension means test for up to 10 years provided there are no withdrawals during the life of the account. All measures announced in the budget are proposals only and may or may not be made into law.

Actor Waleed Hammad prepares to play his part for a TV documentary on the growing problem of sex crimes against women in Egypt
WALK ALONE PREVIEW Sexual harassment and abuse of Egyptian women is rife, but the government is turning a blind eye to a problem that has affected an estimated 99 per cent of women.
aleed Hammad dressed conservatively for his secret mission into the world of sexual harassment and abuse on the streets of Cairo, donning a long tan skirt and sleeved shirt, and at times covering his head like many Egyptian women. The 24-year-old actor walked the footpaths, hidden cameras in tow, for an investigative TV report, hoping the broadcast would enlighten national debate about how to combat deeprooted day-to-day sexual harassment
and abuse in this patriarchal society. Initiatives to counter the problem have mushroomed in recent months. Vigilante groups have started protecting women at gatherings, particularly at large protests or during national holidays when groping and harassment in crowds is at an all-time high. Activists have offered selfdefence classes for women. Social network sites have been started where women can ‘name and shame’ their harassers. On the other side of the debate are conservative religious clerics and
some government off cials who blame women, saying they invite harassment and sexual abuse by mixing with men. Their comments have inf amed the discourse, particularly at a time when Egypt’s volatile and polarised politics blur social and political issues following the 2011 uprising that ousted long-time autocrat Hosni Mubarak. As he strolled, Hammad, who wore light make-up to conceal hints of facial hair and accentuate his eyes, was hissed at and verbally abused. In one instance – when he was wearing a head veil – he

was taken for a prostitute and offered up to 4000 Egyptian pounds (about $585) for one night. “I can go wherever I want, do whatever I want very simply, very easily, very casually,” Hammad says. “For a woman, it boils down to her having to focus on how she breathes while she is walking. It is not just the walk. It is not just the clothes. It is not what she says or how she looks.” As a woman walking down the street, “you have to be in a constant state of alertness”. What Hammad experienced is something Egyptian women endure every day. While not new to Egypt’s conservative society, sexual harassment has grown increasingly violent and visible in the nation, which has an embattled police force and an absence of legislation to address it. Egyptian law def nes and criminalises assault, but not sexual harassment. “What I learned is that this def nitely is not a problem with men only,” Hammad says. “It is a problem, a def ciency in the entire society.” A report last month carried out by a UN Women’s agency, Egypt’s Demographic Centre, and the National Planning Institute found that more than 99 per cent of hundreds of women surveyed in seven of the country’s 27 provinces reported experiencing some form of sexual harassment ranging from minor harassment to rape. Mozn Hassan, a women’s rights
activist who works with the victims of sexual abuse, says the problem will fester as long as there are no laws to punish harassers, no investigations into violent abuse and the government fails to admit there is a problem. Last week, at a public meeting to make recommendations to Egyptian President Morsi Mohammed on how to address the problem, Omaima Kamel, presidential adviser on women’s affairs, said she was seeking realistic statistics on violence against women because she sensed real exaggeration of the numbers reported by some research centres, comments she repeated in media interviews. Kamel is a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood, which emerged as the most powerful political faction in Egypt since the uprising. The group recently criticised a UN document being drafted on violence against women. The Brotherhood said it was “deceitful”, clashed with Islamic principles and undermined family values. The Brotherhood said it advocated sexual freedoms for women and the right to abortion
“under the guise of sexual and reproductive rights”. Besides the daily experience of harassment on the streets of Egypt, sexual assaults at anti-government protests, where women have been groped, stripped and even raped, have risen both in number and intensity during the past year of continued unrest in Egypt. The United Nations says it had reports of 25 sexual assaults on
emboldened activists who seek change, but the television program that Waleed Hammad was involved in wanted to show how all Egyptian women live daily with the fear of being sexually harassed or abused. The program was an online hit, shared by thousands of viewers and lauded as brave, creative, and sparked a comparison between Egypt and other Arab countries. Lena el-Ghadban, the senior reporter on the program, Awel el Kheit or The Thread, which aired earlier this month on the private TV station ONTV, says the program sought to offer a fresh glimpse into the problem through the eyes of men. “We want them to try to feel how women feel about sexual harassment,” el-Ghadban says. “If the man sees himself as the victim of sexual harassment maybe this could get him to think, ‘What am I doing?’” Men interviewed for the program commonly blamed women for dressing or looking in ways that invited sexual harassment. At the same time, they disclosed how men bribed a coffee shop owner to spray water on the pavement so women would be prompted to lift their long conservative dresses. They wanted to get a peek at their legs. AAP
For a woman, it boils down to her having to focus on how she breathes while she is walking. It is not just the walk. It is not just the clothes. It is not what she says or how she looks women at political rallies at Tahrir Square, the centre of the uprising, in one week early this year. Operation Anti-Sexual Harassment/Assault, which patrolled the square, reported 19 incidents alone on January 25 – the second anniversary of the start of the uprising – including a case of a teenager raped with a bladed instrument. Abuse at political events has

AVOIDING WINTER WEIGHT GAIN
Study finds bras make boobs sag
Sunshine Coast dietician Tim Black specialises in weight loss. Here he shares his tips for staying slim over winter.
hen it’s cold outside and the days are shorter, it is tempting to combat the cold by f lling up on our favourite foods and letting our activity routine consist of time on the couch. Increasing our intake can be a physiological response from the body attempting to get a little extra insulation from the cold. However, research from the journal Nutrition and Metabolism (Ernersson A et al. 2010) shows that even short periods of overeating and skipping exercise can have long-term effects on our weight. 6 TIPS FOR AVOIDING WINTER WEIGHT GAIN 1. Eat breakfast. Simply put, starting the day with a decent brekkie will help to control your appetite. Try sweetening up your porridge with cinnamon rather than sugar or honey. Remember just two teaspoons of sugar a day adds up to 300 grams of sugar per month. 2. Enjoy everything in moderation. Moderation is the point at which you think, ‘I probably shouldn’t have another one’. If we can stop ourselves here instead of f nishing that internal conversation with ‘…but just one more won’t hurt’, we’ll have greater success at keeping our weigh-in check. If you don’t trust yourself with the responsibility of moderation, here’s a rule: ‘have just one’. One serving of anything (be it a potato, chocolate pudding or a glass of wine), will not lead to weight gain –
provided that one serving is a sensible one. Craving a warm dessert after dinner? Try baking or stewing fruit. Apples and pears work particularly well and are in season throughout winter. Be mindful of the quantity you eat. Using smaller plates and bowls can be an excellent way to reduce your portion sizes. Keeping a written record of what you eat for a week will help keep your intake in check. Exercise. Don’t make it hard – as time allows, participate in an activity you enjoy. While the morning and evenings are cold and dark, we do have brilliant winter days in our part of the world. Why not use some of your lunch break to get a walk outside? Spending some time in the sunlight can improve our mood and assist with making sensible food choices. Recruit a support person. Talk to a friend or family member about supporting each other with your weight throughout winter. It’s amazing what an effect this can have on our resolve to eat sensibly and exercise regularly.
New research from France has found that wearing a bra might actually make your breasts sag. Jean-Denis Rouillon, a professor at the University of Besancon in France, has spent the past 15 years diligently taking a slide rule and caliper to the breasts of 320 women, ages 18 to 35, to measure any changes, particularly the relationship of the nipple to the shoulder. The sports-science expert has told France Info radio that “bras are a false necessity,” and that “medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benef t from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra.” Whether the French study proves credible – it’s yet to be peer-reviewed – it prompts questions about anatomy, culture, marketing and history. Was the bra invented with women’s physiological health in mind? Or was it rooted in cultural prudishness – a way to keep the girls corralled? More the latter, says Jean McElvain, assistant curator at the Goldstein Museum of Design at the University of Minnesota, which has an extensive collection of lingerie. But both reasons take a back seat to a third – style. “The silhouette of fashion is really dictating what you need under it,” McElvain says. “The 1940s saw a major de-emphasis because of shoulder pads. The 1950s saw the return of the hourglass f gure, with bullet bras.” McElvain doubts that women will pay the French study much heed. “If someone said, let’s not wear bras anymore, it would take many women a long time to stop wearing them,” she says.

THE MOST IMPORTANT MYTHS ABOUT HEARING AIDS Myth: One type of hearing aid is right for all. There are many types and brands of hearing aids. Each person has a unique hearing loss, hearing needs, and brain processing; which hearing aid will work best is a very individual thing. Working with your hearing professional is essential to determine the best device and brand for you. Close follow-up after hearing aids are f tted will help to ensure that the hearing aids truly do meeting the person’s hearing needs. Myth: A milder hearing loss is not bad enough for a hearing aid. Everyone’s hearing loss and listening needs are different. By working with your audiologist, you can determine if a hearing aid is needed and how much it will improve your hearing. In this respect, trialling a hearing aid is essential. Myth: Wearing two hearing aids is not necessary. We normally hear with two ears. Binaural (two-eared) hearing helps us localize sounds, assists us in noisy settings, and provides natural sound quality. Most people with hearing loss in both ears can understand better with two aids than with one. Myth: The smallest hearing aids are more sophisticated. For cosmetic reasons, most people like the idea of a smaller hearing aid but there are no added electronics in those hearing aids that would make them electronically better. In fact, due to the size, in some cases, there is not enough room in the smallest hearing aids for circuits that may be better for the patient. Your hearing professional will help sort through the advantages

and disadvantage of each type and style. Obtaining hearing aids is an important step to improve your life, therefore, take the time to learn about your hearing and hearing aids. Everyone’s hearing loss, lifestyle and brain functioning is different so there is not one hearing aid that is right for all. Book a free a consultation to ask what is best for you and why. Myth: A hearing aid will damage your hearing. A properly f tted and maintained hearing aid will not damage your hearing but might even save you from getting dementia later in life.

New hair trend: reverse ombre hair While ombre hair is still big, in 2013 the ombre obsession will go into reverse, with light roots blending into darker ends, rather than the dark to light transition that has inspired fashionable locks for the past couple of years. Celebrities like Jessica Simpson are embracing the reverse ombre trend, which is an edgy way to upgrade your style. Reverse ombre hair looks best with natural tones that transition through each shade gradually, rather than a stark contrast between light and dark. If your roots are a chestnut brown, you can graduate to an espresso or deep amber. For
Jessica Simpson blondes, go from a vanilla or ice blonde shade at the roots to a darker gold or honey blonde on the ends. Redheads can transition from a light copper at the roots into a deep auburn, for a stunning effect.

OLD STANDBY GETS SPRUCED UP WORDS Peter Atkinson, AAP
he year was 1978. Malcolm Fraser was in the Lodge, Graham Kennedy was our most popular TV personality and John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John were the Ones That We Wanted on top of the music charts. It was also the year Nissan launched a new small car on the Australian market, called the Pulsar. That enduring little model has been
through quite a few reinventions in the last 35 years. So has John Travolta, for that matter. The Pulsar has even been killed off and replaced once or twice – most notably in 2007 by a car called the Tiida, whose strange name was shaded only by the even stranger advertising campaign featuring a nymphomaniac character from Sex and the City. In all there were six generations of
the Pulsar before the Tiida, and an all-new seventh-generation Pulsar was launched by Nissan in January, initially in sedan form and, from this month, with a hatchback version including the return of the SSS model. This time around, it’s powered by a 1.8-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine, mated to a fuel-saving Constantly Variable Transmission (CVT) that offers continued page 32>

better fuel economy than the six-speed manual. Clearly Nissan is aiming for the higher end of the market with this new Pulsar. Its design is upmarket and the interior appointments are high quality. We tested the top-of-the-range Ti model, complete with leather trim, satellite navigation and keyless entry. That was a particularly nice way to reacquaint ourselves with a tried-and-trusted model, albeit with a $28,990 price tag. Entry-level models start at a far more affordable $19,990 for the ST manual. There’s even a bit of nostalgia around that price. Nissan says it’s the same you would have paid for a Pulsar way back in 1996. The price might be old school, but the car has made some signif cant progress in those 17 years. Even for its base model, Nissan is claiming the high ground with soft-touch interior f nishes “not usually found in this segment”. The new Pulsar certainly presents well. Outside it’s crisply styled and elegant to look at; inside it’s impressively spacious for a small car with a classy feel to the cabin presentation. The instrument panel, for instance, features so-called Fine Vision electroluminescent gauges that are backlit even in daylight operation. Our Ti test machine came complete with luxury touches including leather trim, dual-zone climatecontrol air-conditioning, satellite navigation with colour display, including a wide-view reversing
camera; keyless start, electric mirrors with auto-fold function; self-levelling Xenon headlights with dusk sensor and cruise control. The Pulsar is well-specif ed even at the entry level, including 16-inch (40-centimetre) alloys, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity, front side and curtain airbags, air-con, cruise control, keyless entry, power windows and trip computer. It is a signif cant change of direction from some of those earlier model Pulsars, which always seemed to live on the sportier side of the equation. That’s certainly not the case with this 2013 model. The combination of a frugal, but modestly powered normally-aspirated four-cylinder engine, with just 96 kilowatts and 174 Newton metres, and the performance-blunting CVT transmission means this is a conservative thing to drive. It’s smooth and ref ned, no doubt, and a 6.7-litre
per 100 kilometre thirst is ample compensation for that modest performance. The CVT transmission performs perfectly well when driven with a light touch but when accelerating hard it tends to become a bit revvy and buzzy, before settling back into its stride as the vehicle gains pace. On the positive side, it cruises brilliantly, with the engine ticking over at a barely-idling 1700 revs per minute on the 100 kilometre per hour speed limit. That helps deliver its impressive fueleff ciency, which is half a litre per 100 kilometres better than its six-speed manual counterpart. Cabin quietness is generally impressive, and the Pulsar’s ride, while skewed towards comfort rather than handling, soaks up road imperfections with ease. Its airy, spacious interior is impressive for a car of this size and price. The boot, too, offers an impressive 510 litres of storage space, more akin to a medium- or large-sized car. Nissan hasn’t specif ed who its main sales targets will be with this new Pulsar, but it seems aimed at a slightly older, more conservative market than many of its price competitors. Its restrained styling, modest performance but great practicality and ref nement might ultimately entice older families, perhaps even empty-nesters looking to downsize their family machine. Precisely the people who will no doubt remember the Pulsar from its heyday.
The new Golf has just arrived. Why drive anything else? Take the new Volkswagen Golf for a test drive and you’ll discover it’s in a class of its own. Redesigned from bonnet to boot, the Golf comes with a new range of powerful and fuel-efﬁcient TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines, eco-friendly BlueMotion Technology, advanced safety systems including 7 airbags and Driver Fatigue Detection plus Bluetooth® Connectivity as standard. It’s even been awarded World Car of the Year 2013.

FAREWELL TO A DEAD-SET LEGEND
Chris Aistrope, Andrew Shaw and Scott Connolly from Holden Vehicle Operations mark the f nal VE Commodore to be built
he f nal example of the VE Commodore, recently named by Wheels Magazine as “the best Australian car ever”, has rolled off the line at Holden Vehicle Operations in South Australia. The last VE built was an SS Z Series automatic sedan model, painted in Chlorophyll.
Sold on six continents and registering production numbers exceeding 520,000 for both local and global markets during its lifecycle, the VE Commodore and its variants have cemented a place in Australia’s motoring hall of fame. Holden executive director, manufacturing, Richard Phillips, says the VE Commodore was a landmark achievement for Holden. “The company’s f rst ‘clean-sheet’ design allowed our team to show the world what Holden was capable of and the result was, and remains, a stunning car,” Phillips says. “It’s a bittersweet moment to be marking the end of VE production. “It’s been such a great product for us and there’s so much pride around the VE here in the plant, but at the same time we’re excited about the future and the entire Holden team is energised by the imminent launch of the fantastic new VF Commodore.” The Commodore is Holden’s longest-standing and most
successful nameplate and the VE stands tall as a landmark in Holden’s, and Australia’s, motoring history. The VE was sold around the world, predominantly under the Chevrolet nameplate, from utes in South Africa and sedans in the Middle East and Brazil to longwheelbase PPV police vehicles in America. The VE earned a cult following in America as the Pontiac G8 and in the United Kingdom, where Holden Special Vehicles iterations of the VE were sold as the Vauxhall VXR8. The VE Commodore also stands as the most successful race car model in Australian motorsport history. Almost three million Commodores have been produced since 1978 when the f rst VB series sedans rolled off the Holden production line and the Commodore name will have graced 15 model series when the VF goes on sale in June.
Aston Martin fetches $5M
An Aston Martin car has set a new world-record price for the brand, which is celebrating its centenary year. The 1960 DB4GT Jet Coupe sold for $5.09 million including buyer’s premium at the Bonhams auction at the Aston Martin Works in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire. The 14th annual sale of Aston Martin and Lagonda motor cars was also a landmark success for the auction house which raised its highest ever total of $15.5 million. A Bonhams’ spokeswoman says: “The car was the last off the production line and is a complete ‘one-off’ with coachwork by Italian design house Bertone. “The f nished design, with its strikingly angular line, was penned by a young Giorgetto Giugiaro, who would go on to become one of the most celebrated automotive designers of our time.

Shocking Queensland road toll
MY MOTORING INSIDER The latest news from MWP’s man on the ground.
The million-dollar Toyota Honda to return to F1 Honda Motor Company has off cially announced its return to Formula 1 racing in 2015. The Japanese manufacturer will once again work with British team McLaren, with plans to return to the glory days of their winning partnership. Honda pulled out of Formula 1 racing after the 2008 season to cut costs during the economic downturn.

A 1967 Toyota sports car has sold for $US1.15 million (about $1.17 million) to a collector in America. Drive.com reports the mint-condition Toyota 2000GT was one of only 351 built. The 2.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine was good for 112 kilowatts and a top speed of 217 kilometres per hour. Two specially built versions starred alongside Sean Connery in the James Bond movie You Only Live Twice. The cars became convertibles because Connery was too tall. Despite its appearance, the 2000GT never gained the attention of European sports cars, mainly because only 62 were exported to America. In recent years, surviving examples have become arguably the most collectible Japanese classic.

Queensland’s triple-f gure road toll has prompted the state’s peak motoring body to remind drivers to take extra care on the roads. RACQ executive manager Technical and Safety Policy Steve Spalding says the Queensland road toll is already higher than the same time last year. “The cost of road fatalities to the Australian community is $27 billion every year, and that’s just the economic impact,” Spalding says. “Add to that the immeasurable cost of the pain and suffering that each death causes to friends, families and entire communities.” Queensland’s road toll reached 109 in mid-May and the RACQ used the second anniversary of the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety to encourage motorists to take care. “Road safety requires safe drivers in safe cars in safe roads,” Spalding says. The Decade of Action for Road Safety aims to stabilise and reduce the global toll of death and injury on the roads. He says every year 1.3 million people died and 50 million people are injured on the roads globally. “That’s 3400 road deaths every day around the world. While these numbers are overwhelming, change starts in your local community and every motorist can make a difference.

UPGRADE PREVIEW Anyone with the impression that Caloundra lacks class should take a fresh look at the Coast’s most diverse oceanside property market.
[ 38 ] MY W EEKLY P RE VIE W \ M AY 24, 2013
aloundra locals are familiar with the stigma they carry with them when they head north of Buddina. The lower end of the Coast has often been seen as well, lower class, but for Sunshine Coast residents who don’t get down to Bulcock Beach, Currimundi Lake or Moffat headland much, it might be time to change your view of that part of the Coast. Loretta Morgan’s Jam Property off ce is on Bulcock Street, but don’t try to tell her she works in a sleepy town. She loves the diversity and vibrancy of the area. “You’ve got calm water areas, surf beaches, the younger generation and grey nomads,” she says, adding that the area offers a “mixed bag” of people and dwelling types. And you’d be wrong to think of Caloundra as the quiet southern cousin to Maroochydore and Mooloolaba. “Bulcock Street is slowly getting redeveloped,” Morgan says. “We have had all that renovation on the front [on the Bulcock Beach Esplanade]. There are so many job opportunities with the hospital development and Caloundra West. The markets are really starting to gain momentum.”
She adds, “The younger generation are looking at Caloundra as great place to buy.” Why? Prices haven’t risen since the recent pick-up in the market, and “interest rates are at a 53-year low. Add that to the affordability [of Caloundra]. People are looking to move here.” Morgan is seeing a lot of deceased estates coming onto the market, and many older home owners are going into retirement villages or downsizing to live with family. But their homes don’t stay on the market for long. She says, “Younger people are coming in because they see the affordability and so much potential. Caloundra is close to Brisbane and there is a lot of infrastructure development happening. So it is younger people and younger families buying, or savvy investors. Investors are now buying again, as they’ve got their conf dence back.” Morgan says she “desperately” needs listings in the lower end of the market. “We have got buyers, we have the enquiry, we have a database of tenants and buyers. There is not enough rental accommodation in the area,” she says. “Good-value homes are getting snapped up. Investors need to come invest here and rent them out. We are a growing population.” M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW.C OM .A U

Most of the passage is less than two metres deep but it is a busy recreational waterway that is also home to turtles, dugongs and migratory birds.

The Caloundra postcode of 4551 also includes Golden Beach and Pelican Waters to the South, and Kings, Shelly, Moffat and Dicky beaches north to Currimundi.

Caloundra’s heritage • Moffat beach is named after James Moffat, who was an early resident. • European settlement of the Caloundra West and Meridan Plains area dates from the late 1800s. Residential development was minimal until the 1970s and the population more than quadrupled between 1991 and 2006. • From the First World War to the 1950s, an artillery practice base in Battery Hill rained shells on the coastline from Currimundi to Minyama. • Pelican Waters began life in the early 1990s when the large canal estate was developed. The population of the suburb increased seven-fold between 1996 and 2006. SOURCE: SUNSHINE COAST COUNCIL

TAURUS Apr 21-May 21 The lunar eclipse invigorates your intimacy zone, so things are about to get hot and heavy at Casa Taurus. Single bulls – look for a lover who you can really communicate with.
GEMINI May 22-Jun 21 You can get so caught up in the busyness of daily life that you neglect those closest to you. The full moonbeams fall in your relationship zone, so spend time with your loved ones.
CANCER Jun 22-Jul 23 With the lunar eclipse activating your work zone, it’s time to be brave and bold as you plan your professional future. But avoid accepting advice from unreliable sources.
LEO Jul 24-Aug 23 The lunar eclipse lights up your entertainment zone so it’s a good weekend to party, see a movie, or entertain at home. But are you being somewhat elastic with the truth?
VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 The focus is on home and family this weekend, as you tackle chores and projects. If you combine logical thinking with creative ideas, then you’ll come up with something special.
LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 You’re keen to chat. So expect a busy weekend, as you converse with colleagues and catch up with family and friends. Don’t expect to like everything you hear though.
SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 The lunar eclipse shines the spotlight on money matters or self-esteem issues. Avoid being too attached to your possessions. When it comes to joint ﬁnances, communication is the key.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 The lunar eclipse is in your sign so your positive traits are magniﬁed – and so are your negative ones. Aim to be generous and gregarious; rather than bossy and boisterous.
CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 Lift your nose from the career grindstone this weekend, and take a look within. It’s the perfect time for some quiet contemplation, as you communicate with your inner self.
AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 Your independent spirit is stimulated this weekend, as you turn around and do the exact opposite of what’s expected. Others may be shocked, but you need to do what’s right for you.
PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 Are you bored with your job? Be careful what you wish for, ﬁsh – with the lunar eclipse lighting up your career zone, make sure you’re not heading off in an unrealistic direction.

ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20 The ﬁery lunar eclipse gets your blood pumping and your energy levels surging, as you tackle challenges with enthusiasm. But avoid blurting out something that you later regret.

Wow, what a weekend of fun small waves we had. Hope you managed to get a few! Looks like there will be a signif cant bump in the swell from Saturday onwards. However, there will be some ugly wind attached. So, with that in mind it will be Noosa, if the swell gets in, the Maroochydore stretch, Alex, Mooloolaba, Moffs and maybe Dickys and Ann Street depending on how south the wind is. The experts are predicting some rain on Sunday, which might help glass off some of the chop. A massive swell hit Teahupoo last week so stand by for the footage that should be hitting the net – 20-foot monsters were being ridden with Laird Hamilton towing a 20-year-old Hawaiian into the wave of the day. Holy crapola!
with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World
ESTUARY: Flathead are taking plastics and live whiting along the northern banks of the Maroochy River and down to the bar area. There are plenty of whiting on the drift from Channel Island to Chambers Island using yabbies and cured worms. Tailor and trevally are at the Motorway Bridge pylons using lures and pillies. A few blubber-lip bream are taking prawns under the high-rise buildings along Duporth and Bradman avenues. SURF: Bream are on the top of the tide around the coffee rock at Mudjimba with fowl gut the best bait. Catch whiting around the Maroochy Bar area using worms. Pincushion is returning jew on big baits and tailor on pillies at night. OFFSHORE: Caloundra six to twelve mile is returning parrot, sweetlip and squire. Currimundi and Coolum have spotted mackeral, but are moving around with the bait schools. Better-quality reef f sh are out on the Barwon Banks using pillies and squid. Jigging plastics and metal jigs are also returning quality f sh. FRESHWATER: It is the best time of year for bass and golden perch at Somerset and Wivenhoe. Both Baroon Pocket and Lake McDonald are returning good bass along the weed line. Water levels in all local impoundments are high after rains, with bright f uro lures working best.
