here’s nothing better than Christmas when you’re a child. The anticipation of a mystical overweight scarlet-clad stranger letting himself into the house and leaving behind all manner of treats such as bikes, dollhouses and even trampolines, well, who wouldn’t get excited about that? A typical Christmas in the Pearson household circa mid ’80s went something like this: wake up before the birds to discover what the big man has left behind, eat chocolate coins from the stocking before breakfast, and then eat breakfast, which is usually just more chocolate. Play with your new stuff while Mum f elds phone calls from relatives, and then get dressed – perhaps in a nifty bubble skirt or stirrup pants if it’s a bit chilly – and then get ready to greet extended family for a pre-lunch snack of Christmas cake, biscuits and more chocolate. There are

T

] more presents – a bit of Avon bubble bath, a few books, a box of Roses (because, well, you haven’t had quite enough chocolate) – before the table is crammed with a huge roast lunch that you can’t really eat but you do because it’s there and well, you need something to contrast with all that chocolate. The sprinkler is placed under the new tramp for an afternoon of water fun while the adults wash down Christmas pudding with a holiday glass of Lambrusco. As the sun goes down the leftovers come out for dinner, before you’re sent to your room to pack for the yearly three-week holiday up to Maroochydore. Ahh, the memories. In the MWP off ce we’re in a sentimental mood, and the staff have been sharing stories and photos. We thought we would let our readers in on the fun too, so stick a paper crown on your head, grab a slice of fruit cake and turn the page.

In the Netherlands, children receive their gifts from Sinterklaas on December 5, and they leave wooden shoes out instead of stockings.

CHRISTMAS APPEAL he Christmas trees are lighting up, the tinsel is out and the carols are playing – it’s a sure sign the festive season is

T

here. While most of us are planning family gatherings, Christmas feasts and shopping for gifts for loved ones, an increasing number of Australians will be doing it tough this Christmas. Some families will be homeless, others, struggling to make ends meet. Thousands of Queensland children are living in care while some will spend Christmas in hospital and many older people will spend the day alone. Fortunately, the Sunshine Coast is supported by a generous community, eager to spread the Christmas cheer to those less fortunate through a number of Christmas appeals. Most people are familiar with the Kmart Wishing Tree. It began in Adelaide 26 years ago and is now a feature in every Kmart store across Australia and New Zealand and has provided in excess of six million gifts to the Salvation Army. Kmart Caloundra store manager Tim Wood hopes this year his store will donate 3000 gifts. “It gives kids an opportunity to understand that Christmas isn’t just about what they can get – it’s a great opportunity to self essly give,� Wood says. His children have asked him when they will be shopping for the Wishing Tree and each chooses a gift for a child their own age. He says it has become a tradition among many families and this year Kmart nationally is hoping 500,000 gifts will be donated. Queenslanders are being urged

Kmart Wishing Tree facts to spread the Christmas joy to more than 8600 children and young people living in care through the State Government’s Kids in Care program. Child Safety minister Tracy Davis says the appeal sends a strong message of support to foster carers and the role they play in communities. “It takes a community to raise a child and this is particularly true for children who are unable to live with their own families,� Davis says. “Christmas can be a diff cult time for kids in care but one of the best ways to ease their burden is to bring a smile to their faces and it also lets them know that people really do care about them.� This year Buderim’s One Agency Coastal has also jumped into the festive spirit with a toy drive to provide gifts and Christmas cheer to children in Nambour Hospital.

• Kmart Wishing Tree has been running for 26 years. • It started in Adelaide and is now a f xture in every Kmart store in Australia and New Zealand. • More than six million gifts have been provided since its inception. This year Kmart is hoping the Wishing Tree will provide 500,000 gifts for the Salvation Army to distribute nationally.

Make a toy donation Note, many require gifts to be unwrapped. Gifts should be new. You can make deliveries here: Kids in Care Christmas Appeal Your local child safety service centre or ABC studios by December 13. St Vinnies Caloundra Christmas Appeal St Vincent de Paul Caloundra, 16 Mayes Avenue, Caloundra. One Agency Coastal Christmas Toy Drive Suite 3B, 100 King Street Buderim by December 20.

INSPIRED BY LIFE’S SIMPLICITY emember the summers of yesteryear when you spent long hot days at the beach, bathed in fresh air, salt water and a light crusting of sand? They were carefree days when summer seemed to be endless and life was simple. The cricket scores crackled through the static on the radio as dad cooked snags on the barbecue and the kids swam and played until the sun dipped below the horizon and it was time to wash off the remnants of zinc cream. For Shannon Palmer those days haven’t ended. The Mudjimba artist is still living the carefree beach life in a pocket of the Coast where time seems to stand still. “My whole life ‌ me and my family and friends, it’s just all that we do – go to the beach or the river or the island,â€? Palmer says. By the island, she means Old Woman Island, just off of Mudjimba Beach. The kids paddle over and the adults join them and they swim and snorkel and explore.

R

The idea of recycling something used, or creating a piece of useable art is something I find inspiring For Palmer it is what life is all about and it is ref ected in her simple, carefree graphite on timber art pieces. She draws her inspiration from her life, her friends and the beach scenes that surround her and her ‘canvas’ is often a recycled piece of timber. “The idea of recycling something used, or creating a piece of useable art, is something I f nd inspiring. Beauty and function in collaboration.� Some of those used pieces include old skateboard decks her children or their friends no longer use. “Timber is an amazing material to sketch on,� she says. “Every piece of timber is different. Sometimes it will dictate what you can do or can’t do with it. “Sometimes you can’t get all the old marks off a skateboard deck.� Palmer, who also works as a supply and relief teacher, is originally from north Queensland. She and her husband moved to the Coast after a brief stint in Brisbane, looking for a change. They lived at different suburbs on the Coast including Buderim and Coolum, before

discovering Mudjimba and falling in love. “For years I didn’t know Mudjimba existed,� she says. Now it is at the heart of the simple life her family leads, where everything is cruisy and there’s no need for stuff. Her work has a retro feel but she says that is more about its simplicity, which ref ects her family’s pared back lifestyle. “Everything I sketch or sketch on is directly related to our lifestyle. It ref ects what I’m in to.� While her children are surf ng or skating she is sketching. “I very rarely go anywhere where I’m not sketching – a barbecue, surf competitions or whatever. I do that instead of reading a book.� If it’s not a big piece she can f nish it in a day and many feature friends, family and people around her. “I just whip out my camera and take photos of them and they end up on a piece of timber.� Palmer held her f rst solo exhibition last week. To view her work or to commission her pieces visit her website shannonpalmerart.com.au.

elenbi advertising feature

The elenbi way elenbi has recently opened its f fth salon on the Sunshine Coast, this time on Plaza Parade in Maroochydore. Owners Brendan and Leigh McGahey launched their f rst elenbi salon in 2004 with only four hairstylists. Now they employ 28 senior stylists in f ve locations, and pride themselves on guaranteeing that clients will always be seen by a senior stylist. “We have implemented this based on feedback from our clients,” Brendan says. “A very important part of our business is listening to clients and hearing what they have to say.” Brendan and Leigh say that the level of service offered by elenbi stylists is consistently of a very high standard, and as the brand continues to grow they want to ensure their salons don’t lose the personal touch they are renowned for. As a result, the newest salon has been built as a professional development hub, where Brendan

and Leigh can welcome new stylists to the team and show them what the elenbi culture is about. “It’s not a training salon but we do have reduced prices here. This is the place we can go through policies and show our procedures – how to use the computer system, for example, or help them transition to using L’Oréal Professionnel and Kérastase,” Brendan says. “All hair salons have slightly different procedures, so once we feel

li h h elenbi l bi touch h then h a new stylist has the we can put them into one of our main salons, and our fabulous managers have someone ready to go that already knows the ropes.” Leigh says that she and Brendan ensure the culture of elenbi is instilled into every new team member.

“This is the salon where we nuture and develop the elenbi culture,” she says. This keeps the quality of service high and also ensures a strong, vibrant team culture. “The hairdressing industry is made up of young people. Some come and go but we feel very proud that so many come back to the elenbi family,” Leigh says. “This year alone we have had 10 people return after starting their own families and travelling the world. “It’s nice for clients to know that our stylists love being part of the elenbi team and want to come back.”

HOSPITAL UPDATE ork on the $1.8 billion Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital project is well underway. Piling for the hospital buildings is nearing completion with more than 3000 foundation piles driven into the footprint of the new public hospital. A third tower crane is on site and the structure of the hospital will soon start to be visible. Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service chief executive Kevin Hegarty says the State Government’s investment in the new public tertiary teaching hospital at Kawana will revolutionise public health care on the Sunshine Coast. “Until the public hospital opens, the construction of the facility brings many other benef ts to the local region, by way of creating thousands of jobs and opportunities for local businesses,� Hegarty says. “It is estimated that 1800 to 2000 workers will be on site daily

at the peak of construction and once the hospital opens at the end of 2016, approximately 2500 staff will be required to provide services at the facility, growing to 6000 staff by 2021.� The f rst two multi-deck car parks are on schedule to open this month. The duplication of Kawana Way is nearly f nished, meaning the road alongside the hospital precinct will increase from two to four lanes. The Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital is the f rst major new, not replacement, public hospital built in Australia in more than 20 years.

Create your own surf art these school holidays f your kids are looking for a break from the waves this week they might want to let their creativity f ow with some surf art activities. Caloundra Regional Art Gallery is holding a range of artistic surf and beach themed activities for kids aged f ve to 12 this summer. They can colour their own beach tote bags, design a T-shirt or create their own gnarly surfboard design. Other activities include creating f shy artworks and sand casting. The workshops are being held throughout December and January. For more information and to book spaces check out the kids’ summer activities page at galleries.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.

An artist’s impression of the new development approved for Sippy Downs Sippy Downs will be home to a new shopping complex, incorporating a Coles supermarket, following council approval of the development last week. Councillor Christian Dickson says the shopping centre, to be located at 107 Sippy Downs Drive, will comprise retail and commercial uses, an educational establishment, conference centre, hotel, community meeting hall and 152 residential units. The development, located opposite the University of the Sunshine Coast and within the Sippy Downs Town Centre Core Precinct, will take place in stages. “There are so many positive outcomes from this proposal, the retail and commercial component covers an area of approximately 8000 square metres. That means

a fantastic increase in the shopping options for locals,� Dickson says. “The environmental outcome will have signif cant benef ts for local f ora and fauna with the dedication of 13,500 square metres of land adjacent to the Sunshine Motorway as a Natural Habitat Reserve. “There’s an additional 1500 square metres of land with frontage to the future main street through town and that land will be available for the development of a community facility – we will eventually have a brand-new community space to meet the needs of our growing population. “This development is an absolute boon for the economic viability, social diversity and environmental sustainability of the area and I hope to see construction get underway as soon as the right operational works approvals are in place.�

High times on the Hypto MWP’s Michael Kramer (pictured above) recently paddled back to a time when his body was more nimble and his hair a lot longer, thanks to an incredible board with a funny name.

E

ver been arrested for speeding? Or even f ned? Well hang on to your hats as I introduce you to the Hypto Krypto from HS. Before I delve into the merits of this board let me take you on a two-sentence journey. I have been surf ng now for more than 30 years – although my technique/style would not necessary indicate this, my driver’s license unfortunately does. I have ridden many boards in this time from Kent Manning, Mick Grace, Geoff McCoy, Neil Belcher, Allan Byrne and Channel Islands to name a few. But my recent discovery courtesy of the Beachbeat crew is something really worth writing about. All these boards have served me well but this recent epiphany is something I need to share with you and may well change your life for the better. It is with the enthusiasm of a grommet frothing over two-foot perfection that I write to you today about the famous Hypto Krypto. Beachbeat’s Al Hing suggested we take this f ne board on our recent trip to North Sumatra and after my f rst session at Burger World on our way north I was in heaven. This board got me in early and had speed to burn. As the days rolled on and I slowly started working out what this board was capable of and I found my feet; it was incredible. Big call I know. While it does have some nice balanced volume

it was never a hassle duck-diving – the trick is making sure the Beachbeat crew pick the right board for your weight and skill. I got f ogged in some pretty serious waves of which I have never seen the likes of on the Sunshine Coast, and the board surprised everyone by not snapping – this is one durable board. The cutbacks made it feel strong and fast and I am told adjusting f ns gives you extra bite and looseness if required. Remember kids, once you have the speed, throwing down a f oater or getting out of a collapsing section is simple with this board. What does that mean you ask? You get to sit a little inside everyone knowing you have speed to burn once you are on your feet. My summary ��� GET THIS BOARD! No need to thank me! But to steal a quote from Geoff McCoy, this is the thinking man’s board, or someone who is a bit time poor and just wants to nail his/her wave count. Matt Dobell (who is pictured riding the board on the left) is a G-Land charger and the Hypto Krypto is his go-to board up to triple overhead. He tells me he has trouble getting out of G-Land because everyone wants his board. Now, listen here you crazy cats, MWP, Beachbeat and Global Surf Industries are giving you a chance to win one these boards. See below.

The Sunshine Coast’s visitor numbers have increased by nearly nine per cent, producing record numbers despite Queensland’s economic downturn. A growth in day trips of nearly 18 per cent in 2012-2013 meant the Coast increased its overall visitor numbers to a record 8.9 million, up 8.7 per cent on the previous f nancial year. Tourists generated $2.8 billion to the economy in 2012-2013, an increase of nearly 16 per cent. The results were announced at last week’s Sunshine Coast Destination annual general meeting,

[ Shower donation brings joy Wishlist is helping bring back the simple joy of a hot shower for palliative care patients at Caloundra. The Sunshine Coast charity has bought a $3000 height-adjustable Tilt in Space shower chair/commode for the Dover Palliative Care Unit at Caloundra. Nurse Unit manager Clodagh Barwise-Smith says the new shower chair has already made a difference to patients in the three weeks since its arrival. She says it is of benef t to patients with poor posture due to neurological conditions such as brain tumours, motor neurone disease and extreme breathlessness, who are often not able to sit up in a regular commode chair. To acknowledge donations made to fund the chair a memorial tree mural has been established and the branches will be dressed with leaves dedicated to the memory of loved ones. Families are able to buy a leaf on the tree for a donation of $500 or more. “We see this as a beautiful way for the loved ones to be remembered and for us to generate funds that will benef t current and future patients,” Barwise-Smith says. Donations will be used to help make life more comfortable for those needing care.

ustralian seas contain an invisible potential killer more deadly than any sharks, crocodiles, jellyf sh or snakes. The f rst in-depth test of its kind in waters around Australia found widespread pollution with micro-plastics – plastic particles less than f ve millimetres long – which would go unnoticed by the casual observer. The research concludes there are on average more than 4000 pieces of plastic per square kilometre of water.

Many of the plastics found contain toxic chemicals which could work their way up the food chain to humans. “There is increasing evidence that marine animals, ranging from plankton to whales, ingest large amounts of plastics loaded with pollutants, which may then be incorporated into the food chain,” says lead author and PhD student Julia Reisser, from the University of Western Australia’s Oceans Institute. “We need to decrease plastic waste and toxicity, regulate plastic disposal on land at an international level, and better

enforce the laws prohibiting dumping plastics at sea.” For the study, published last week in the PLOS ONE journal, scientists from UWA and CSIRO dragnetted 57 locations around Australia, plus waters near Fiji. They found evidence of micro-plastics at 53 sites, a 93 per cent hit rate. The majority came from broken-down polyethylene and polypropylene, which are used to make f shing gear and disposable packaging like water bottles and plastic cups. The sources of the pollution could be both domestic and international. High concentrations were found close to Sydney and Brisbane, but also in remote areas where ocean currents converge, like south west of Tasmania and Western Australia’s North West Shelf. The pollution level is lower than the world’s worst-hit oceans – for now. The study says the so-called ‘Great Pacif c Garbage Patch’, between the United States and Japan, contains 334,271 pieces of plastic per square kilometre. AAP

Business is good A bigger than expected rise in business investment shows the moderation in the mining sector won’t hit the overall economy, an economist says. In the September quarter Australian business investment rose by 3.6 per cent, off cial f gures show. Commonwealth Bank economist Diana Mousina says the increase, following expectations of a 1.2 per cent fall in the quarter, show the economy is still in good shape. “We think that it’s saying that overall we’re seeing this peak in mining investment but the peak is not kind of falling off the cliff as some had been anticipating,” she says. “It’s really showing that this peak in mining investment is more of a plateau and that really means you’re going to have more time for the non-mining economy to make a stronger contribution to growth.” The closely watched f gures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics cover investment in capital goods which includes things like buildings and equipment.

AMAZON TAKES TO THE SKIES deliver the items to customers just 30 minutes after they made their purchase on Amazon.com. “I know this looks like science f ction. It’s not,” Bezos says. “We can do half-hour delivery…and we can carry objects, we think, up to f ve pounds [2.3 kilograms], which covers 86 per cent of the items we deliver.” The mini-drones could cover areas within a 16-kilometre radius of fulf lment centres, thus covering a signif cant portion of the population in urban areas. They operate autonomously and drop the items at the target locations thanks to GPS co-ordinates transmitted to them. “It’s very green, it’s better than driving trucks around,” says Bezos. Amazon says the octocopters will be “ready to enter commercial operations as soon as the necessary regulations are in place,” noting that the Federal Aviation Administration is actively working on rules for unmanned aerial vehicles. Bezos hints that part of the motivation behind the mini-drones is to make sure Amazon remains on the cutting edge of the retail industry. “Companies have short life spans … And Amazon will be disrupted one day,” he said.

Washington’s National Zoo giant panda cub has been named Bao Bao and visitors will get their f rst glimpse of the baby female in a month. Bao Bao – meaning ‘treasure’ or ‘precious’ in Chinese – is only the second cub to ever survive birth at the National Zoo since 1972, when it received a pair of giant pandas following president Richard Nixon’s visit to China. In line with Chinese tradition, the zoo baptised the tiny panda – daughter of two pandas kept at the tourist attraction – on Sunday, 100 days after her August 23 birthday. During a ceremony, Assistant Secretary of State for Oceans and International Environmental and Scientif c Affairs Kerri-Ann Jones and Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai revealed two small certif cates on which the name was written in English and Chinese. The pandas are considered a symbol of friendship between China and the United States. First Lady Michelle Obama, the president’s wife, hailed Bao Bao as a “symbol of the growing connection between our two countries” in a video message. Cui explained that the Chinese tradition of waiting 100 days before naming a cub “represents the wish that the baby… will live as long as 100 years.”

A US man who says he was trying to spread holiday cheer by tossing 1000 $US1 bills over an upper f oor railing at the Mall of America in Minnesota has been arrested for disorderly conduct. Serge Vorobyov admitted to throwing his “last $1000” from the fourth f oor on Friday as a choir performed Let it Snow. The 29-year-old says he also kept tossing cash as he continued down the escalator. Vorobyov says he’s going through a divorce, lost his car hauling business and hoped the positivity of throwing the money would come back to him. “I wanted to do some sort of pay-it-forward kind of thing,” he says. He invited his estranged wife to try to win her back but she didn’t show up. Instead, Vorobyov was arrested by police and released at the scene. He also was ordered not to go into the mall for a year. Vorobyov had stamped the bills with his YouTube address and on his Facebook page he called the event a publicity stunt. When asked why he wanted the publicity, he said he wanted his cat back from his estranged wife. Mall of America spokeswoman Sarah Schmidt says it’s the f rst time anyone has ever done something like that in the mall. She says Vorobyov disrupted the performance and could’ve caused a serious situation. AP

America’s baby panda gets a name

After four years, the newest member of Washington’s panda family will be sent to China and become part of a breeding program there, as part of a co-operative breeding agreement. Pandas are notoriously reluctant breeders when held in captivity. Fewer than 1600 pandas remain in the wild, mainly in China’s Sichuan province, with a further 300 in captivity around the world. But this year was busy in the panda world, with births in Madrid, Vienna and Atlanta, Georgia. China also recorded the only double birth of the year. AAP

FRAUD ON THE RISE: STUDY echnology is playing an increasingly signif cant role in fraud, introducing new opportunities for the fraudster and compounding opportunities for collusion. It was a key f nding in KPMG International’s study Global Prof les of a Fraudster, which also found the use of new technology has resulted in organisations f nding themselves increasingly vulnerable to cyberattacks, many of which seemingly go unreported. “What we are seeing is a new generation of people able to use more technology, and with access to much more information than past generations – all of which points to a new era for fraud and illegal activities,” says Gary Gill from KPMG Australia. Advancements in technology and proliferation of social media in an increasingly interconnected world, is making organisations more

T

susceptible to fraud and illegal activities. The key change led by technology is the ease with which intellectual property can now ‘walk out’ of the organisation. And most organisations do not seem to realise how exposed their systems are to loss of sensitive information. “Organisations must be as sophisticated in their cyber security as the hackers are in their methods. Cyber security must be a top priority in all risk management strategies,” Gill says. The survey also found about 60 per cent of fraudsters were employed by the victim organisation, in many cases, for more than six years.

unemployment and ensuring inf ation remains in check. It naturally follows that for unemployment to decline, the American economy must strengthen. Assuming we have a strengthening American economy, which should manifest in a stronger global economy, we should see the gap between perceived growth and real growth narrow, which is favourable for developed markets. Additionally, with fewer artif cial sweeteners in the system, the US dollar should strengthen against global currencies, including the Australian dollar. There is no doubt the Reserve Bank of Australia would be satisf ed with this outcome as it would provide support to our exporters. In relation to imports (goods and services), we should see an inf ationary effect, which the RBA would look through, at least initially. The above scenario should result in stronger performance by developed-economy stock markets. For the anticipated upside to be met, the US Federal Reserve will need to ensure that American bond yields remain in check. If we see borrowing costs increase, the expected returns on equity and property markets will be muted as the cost of doing business will increase. All in all, central banks globally still have signif cant inf uence on market returns and their co-ordinated behaviour will greatly determine the outcome for equity and property markets. It is important, nonetheless, to f nd the signif cant themes, determine the most eff cient means of access and then to execute the trade. Sounds easy, doesn’t it?

icadas are everywhere. The beady-eyed bugs are in the trees, in the long grass and crawling on the f y screen. Their left-over skins, like a potato crisp with legs, cling to the garden shed, branches and window ledges. Many of their shells end up in containers, carted off to primary schools by children for show and tell. “What Aussie kid has not played with cicada shells?” says organic gardener and gardening writer Annette McFarlane. “I still f nd them fascinating.” In many parts of Australia, the clarion call of summer is not the squeal of kids on the beach or the whir of Jet skis in a busy bay. It’s the sound of cicadas. The Australian Museum’s entomology collection manager, Dave Britton, says the raucous sound reminds him of summer and good times around Christmas. “Most Australians associated that noise with summer: it’s barbecues, backyards and cricket.” Cicadas, which depending on their colour go by wonderful names such as yellow Monday, masked devil, blue moon and f oury baker, have emerged earlier than usual this year in certain parts of Australia. “It seems to be a bit advanced all along the east coast, certainly in the Sydney basin and in the Blue Mountains they’ve come out two weeks earlier than we usually expect

McFarlane, who lives in Queensland, says it’s still peaceful in her garden – the cicadas are yet to emerge. “Interestingly they have not started up here yet, but when we get a bad season they are deafening at our place,” she says. “You literally have to close all the doors and windows and put the airconditioning on. “Their sound is so off-putting it really does protect them from birds.” AAP

them,” Britton says. “I associated that with hot days at the end of September and early October and that’s triggered the nymph to come out of the ground.” Cicadas, of which there are more than 200 species, can be found everywhere in this nation. “In Australia they’re pretty much everywhere in terrestrial habitats, including some of the islands,” Britton says. “We get them in deserts, through to semi-arid through to rainforest. In drier open country a lot of the cicadas get quite small

and they’re not like the noisy, loud, things we see on the coast.” Cicadas are the loudest insects in the world. In an effort to attract a mate, some males can hit 120 decibels, which is approaching the pain threshold of the human ear. Fortunately for the insect, it has a trick where it can turn off its ears so it won’t be deafened by its own noise, Britton says. And for those Australians bothered by the cacophony, they’ll be happy to hear that adult cicadas survive only a few weeks.

Did you know...

• Australian species of cicada may live underground as nymphs for six or seven years. In contrast, the life of the adult cicada is short, lasting only a few weeks. • Cicadas may cause some slowing of the growth of trees from the amount of sap they consume, but the effects are not very noticeable. • They do not bite, though they may cling to the skin with their sharp claws when handled. They are considered harmless to people. • Cicadas are eaten in large quantities by birds. They are also carried off by wasps as food for their young, and undoubtedly serve as food for many other animals. SOURCE: AUSTRALIAN MUSEUM

MAKE/MODEL MERCEDES-BENZ GL500 DETAILS Five-door, seven-seat luxury SUV with turbo-charged petrol V8 engine and 7-speed automatic transmission. TECH STUFF Twin turbo-charged 4.7-litre V8 engine produces 320kW, 700Nm; seven-speed auto with wheel-mounted gearshift paddles; 4Matic permanent all-wheel-drive.

BIG & BEAUTIFUL WORDS Peter Atkinson, AAP ometimes I wonder if MercedesBenz builds cars like this one solely for the purpose of showing off. I mean, surely there’s no practical reason to build a car as big, as powerful and as wildly and broadly capable as the GL500. It’s not just one car, it’s several. For a start, it’s a people-mover, able to swallow up seven full-sized adults in leather-clad comfort. Second, it’s a go-anywhere machine – as capable off-road as just about any machine on the planet with all-wheel-drive and a sophisticated suspension and traction system. Third, despite its bush-bashing credentials, it’s also a luxury limousine, as ref ned as just about anything you’ll f nd in the marble-adorned dealerships of these European marques. Now, it’s even got claims on being a sports car. A new, phenomenally

S

powerful yet economical V8 engine has added yet another string to the bow of this gargantuan luxury 4WD machine. Replacing the model’s previous 5.7-litre V8 (itself a rather impressive thing), the GL500 is now powered by a twin-turbocharged, 4.7-litre highperformance V8 that will rumble this massive machine (all 2.5 tonnes of it) to the speed limit in an eye-opening 5.4 seconds. Despite that remarkable performance, it can achieve fuel eff ciency f gures as low as single f gures on the open road, and a combined average thirst of 11.5L/100km. So, from an engine of smaller capacity, the Benz engineers have squeezed out 12 per cent more power and 32 per cent more torque, while using 18 per cent less fuel. Not satisf ed with that, Benz has for

the f rst time released an AMGimproved version of the GL, with even more dazzling performance. An amped-up version of that V8 punches out 410kW and 760Nm in the GL63, allowing it to achieve the speed limit in less than f ve seconds – the traditional benchmark for true supercar acceleration. The drawback is that the AMG version hovers around the $220,000 mark, so we’d gladly make do with the ever-so-slightly less explosive performance of the ‘standard’ GL500. Despite its German heritage, the GL Continued over >

FEATURES 13 airbags; dynamic stability control; dynamic adjustable air suspension system; blind spot and lane departure warning systems; electric seats, windows, mirrors and rear tailgate; electric folding third-row seats; leather trim, premium audio system, sat navigation, auto-dimming headlights; 360-degree camera parking assist system. PERFORMANCE 0-100km/h in 5.4 seconds. THIRST 11.5L/100km (official combined figure). VERDICT A car that will go anywhere, do anything (and do it quickly). BOTTOM LINE $154,900 (plus onroad costs).

<from previous page is built in America, which is not all that surprising, I suppose, for an SUV with this much space and power – two features that rate pretty highly with American buyers. But its ref nement and quality f nishes are the equal of any of its European-built rivals, which include Audi’s A7, the Lexus LX570 and the recently released Range Rover Vogue. In size alone, the Benz makes quite a statement. It’s deceptively large – not as tall, for instance as a Toyota LandCruiser but just about as big in every other dimension, particularly inside. Yet with the air suspension set to sport mode it manages to sit surprisingly low to the ground, making access much more convenient than in most vehicles of these dimensions. That also means it is surprisingly nimble in changing direction – not exactly sports car-like but pretty impressive for something with so much metal above its centre of gravity. The dynamic air suspension system measures and counters the shift of weight from one wheel to another,

even allowing for varying load weights and conf gurations, as well as measuring and adjusting things such as cross-winds and variations in the road surface. Clever stuff. As you might imagine, the cockpit of this German wagon is a particularly pleasant place to be. There is not one but two Thermotronic climate control systems – one for front passengers, another for those in the rear. There’s an intelligent lighting system, which automatically dips those high beams when required; a glass panoramic sunroof, electric parking brake, seats trimmed in supple leather, all with electric adjustment and the obligatory concert-quality sound system. Benz has ensured that those wishing to use the third-row seats can do so with a minimum of fuss. The seats fold out of the f oor with the push of a button, and the middle-row seats fold forward electrically to give unencumbered access to the rear. The tailgate is also a push-button affair. Safety in this machine is phenomenal. While passengers are protected by its 13 airbags (yes, 13), they are unlikely to ever be required,

thanks to Dynamic Stability Control and Brake Assist Plus; all supplemented by the excellent all-wheeldrive system which keeps the big Benz’s wheels constantly gripping the road. If you managed to drive foolishly enough to defy those safety measures, there’s also Benz’s Pre-Safe accident prediction system. The driver also gets plenty of help in other ways. Dynamic cruise control ensures you’re kept a safe distance from the car in front; attention assist gives you a beep if you appear to be getting drowsy; active blind spot assist and lane keeping assist ensure you don’t wander into the wrong lane and a clever 360-degree camera system allows you a virtual view all around the car during parking manoeuvres. It’s equally at home away from the city traff c. Its all-wheel-drive system gives it surprising off-road ability; the

adjustable suspension jacks up to maximise ground clearance and it boasts impressive wading ability (up to 600 millimetres) and approach angles (up to 33 degrees). Of course, none of this comes cheap – you’ll pay about $130,000 for the entry-level turbo-diesel model and an additional $25-grand for this better-equipped petrol V8. Add another $70-grand if you want the physics-defying GL63 AMG. But that would be just showing off, wouldn’t it?

Getting behind the wheel while hung-over can be just as dangerous as driving after too many beers. Researchers say drivers should be warned that the effects of heavy drinking extend beyond the point when traces of alcohol have disappeared from the blood. A Dutch study, presented at a conference in Brisbane last week, put volunteers through simulated driving tests the night after they consumed about 10 alcoholic drinks. They took the tests after their blood alcohol concentrations had returned to zero and the results were compared with how they performed after a night when they did not drink. The study shows hangovers can signif cantly increase the number of lapses in attention, and weaving on the road. “The magnitude of driving impairment is higher than that observed with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.05 per cent, which is the legal limit for driving in many countries,” says Dr Joris Verster of Utrecht University. A smaller United Kingdom study produced similar f ndings. It shows hung-over drivers are more likely to travel at an

inconsistent speed, make more driving errors and weave on the road. They also have slower reaction times. Professor Chris Alford of the University of the West of England says the effect of hangovers on driving performance must be incorporated into driver safety campaigns. The hangover study is being presented at the Australasian Professional Society on Alcohol and other Drugs conference in Brisbane. AAP M Y W EEK LY PREVIEW.C OM .A U

The other side

When it comes to investing in property, most people opt for a lower-risk residential dwelling. But if you do your research, commercial property can deliver returns.

T

he announcement of the recent approval for a development in Buderim has given property investors and developers more conf dence in the local property market. The development, for more than 1400 square metres of off ce space on King Street, represents the last remaining area of vacant land that adjoins Buderim Village Park on the busy street, according to Sunshine Coast Council councillor Christian Dickson. “Council received 56 submissions about the proposed development during the public notif cation stage of the assessment process – the overwhelming majority of submissions (54) were in support of the development,” Dickson said in a press statement from last week. Sean Evans from SP Buderim said in the same release, “We’re ready to start construction as soon as the operational works is approved and that could be before the end of the year.” Evans added that the top f oor of the building is already tenanted with much interest from potential tenants. “I fully expect the building to be operational from 1 September 2014.” We know that property investors are returning to the residential market, but the news about this new development is a reminder to investors that it is not just residential dwellings that represent investment potential. Commercial properties are also popular among many seasoned investors. For the uninitiated, however, commercial investment might seem too daunting, so should you stick to residential, or give commercial investment a go? There are advantages and disadvantages to both types of investment. The Sunshine Coast has always been viewed as fairly low risk for residential property investors (vacancy rates are usually low, even in lean times, and if you price your rent well and

HAPPY RETURNS Any form of investment has tax implications and the Australian Tax Off ce recommends if you buy a commercial property, keep track of your records right from the start. Any expenses incurred in the owning of the property – such as the interest on the loan and maintenance or repairs – are tax deductible, so keep thorough records of these. Check with your accountant or solicitor about whether or not you will have to pay GST when buying a commercial property, and if you are eligible to claim that GST as a tax deduction.

engage a good property manager, your investment should be vacant for no more than a few weeks between tenants). Commercial, on the other hand, is seen as higher risk. And this may be because most investors are much more familiar with residential than commercial opportunities. However, returns for commercial can often be greater – established wisdom tells us that residential returns are generally around three to f ve per cent, depending on the value of the investment. A quality commercial site can return as much as nine per cent. When looking at commercial investment options, there are generally three types of properties an investor will consider: industrial buildings, such as sheds; a retail shop; and off ce space. Investors need to consider the risks and returns of each type to decide which one they are most comfortable with. As the Coast’s population is growing at a faster rate than commercial land is created, it might seem to be an obvious investment strategy to go with commercial, especially considering the returns, however, commercial property investment is not for everyone – the biggest drawback of commercial property is that it can take much longer to f nd a tenant. As a result, investors need to have plans in place in case the property stands vacant for long periods. If you are an investor who can put up only a small deposit and you don’t have a lot in reserve to cover the lean times, residential property is probably a much safer investment. If, however, you shy away from investing in commercial property because you just don’t know much about it, it might be time to educate yourself. For those who can afford to invest their own capital into a property, commercial is worth considering.

ORIGINAL GEM SOLD UNDER THE HAMMER ast weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MPP cover story featured a gorgeous original 1960s home in Mooloolaba, which went to auction on Sunday. Reports are that parking on Mooloolaba Road was hard to come by on the day, as auctioneer Tim Burrough f elded 55 bids before selling the home for $476,000 to a local couple, who spotted it for the f rst time just one day before. They plan to update the California bungalow-style home that Jack and Milda Broughton built in 1959 and restore it to its former glory.

ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20 Mars marches into your relationship zone, so it’s time to be proactive about partnerships. Single rams – if you’re interested in someone, you’ll have to make the first move.

TAURUS Apr 21-May 21 You’ll make professional progress if you combine creative thinking with a compassionate approach. If you’re not sure about a work issue, then follow your instincts.

GEMINI May 22-Jun 21 Geminis are in a giant rush but do you know where you’re going? It’s not a good weekend to make important decisions, as you’re lacking direction. Wait until you’re more focused.

CANCER Jun 22-Jul 23 A relationship with a child, teenager or friend could be stressful. Keep your cool and don’t let them press your emotional buttons. Singles – a casual flirtation becomes intense.

LEO Jul 24-Aug 23 You’re keen to clear the air and get something off your chest this weekend. Some people will appreciate honesty while others won’t be amused. Take it in your stride.

VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 Mercury/Neptune aspects make for a confusing weekend when you may get your wires crossed about an important issue. So avoid making big decisions until you’re thinking more clearly.

LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 Don’t let others discourage you from following your dreams. Mars charges into your sign on Sunday, which encourages you to think big, act spontaneously, and walk your Libran talk.

SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 Misunderstandings over money are likely so put everything down in writing. A group situation needs to be handled diplomatically. Don’t assume you have all the answers.

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 Spontaneous Sagittarius – you’re in the mood to speak your mind but others may misinterpret what you say. The more tactful you are with loved ones, the better the weekend will be.

CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 Work diligently towards goals that will be fulfilled in the future. Just because the results are modest now doesn’t mean they won’t be fabulous further down the track. Persistence is the key.

AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 With the moon in Aquarius for most of the weekend, you’re feeling restless and are in the mood for adventure. Make sure you socialise with others on a similar wavelength.

PISCES Feb 20-Mar 20 Relationships will be a minefield, as misread motives lead to irrational thinking and misunderstandings. So it would be wise to spend less time talking and more time listening.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

As I write this I am stuck in Sydney and the boys on the Coast are happy to text me with the news that we are f nally getting some decent swell. Anyway, taking a look at the weather maps for the weekend I see that there are some strong winds from the south turning south-east, along with a bit of swell. This should mean that things will open up at the points, so Alex, Point Cartwright and Moffat are all worth a look. The Maroochydore stretch is also worth checking out early. Secret squirrel at the moment is to check out the high tide early at Mooloolaba – you might be pleasantly surprised. Just don’t tell anyone!

FISHING REPORT

with Wayne Nilsson from Maroochydore Fishing World

ESTUARY: Quality-sized whiting are being taken this week from Goat Island to Cotton Tree with cured worms and yabbies on a rising tide. Good f athead are on the drift past Chambers Island and down past Twin Waters to the bar area. Sand crabs are around, and mud crabs are on the increase after the recent rains. Trevally will be around bridge and jetty pylons. SURF: Some tailor are on the night high tides from Mudjimba along the coast to Kawana. Whiting are just down from Alex Surf Club with pippies and cured worms working well. Catch trevally on lures and baby blue pilchards at Pincushion and the Mooloolaba rock walls. OFFSHORE: Northerlies have slowed down the action, but the moment the wind swings back to the south, reef f shing improves. Berley is a must with Murphy’s Reef and Coolum returning sweetlip, parrot and mackerel right on dawn and dusk, using cut baits. The Barwon Banks are working for mixed reef f sh, mainly just after dark. FRESHWATER: Anglers are having a ball catching and releasing bass in Somerset, Lake Baroon, Lake Macdonald and Cania Gorge to the north. Borumba is looking good for f y f shers having a fantastic time around the lily pads chasing the elusive saratoga. There is good news for Ewan Maddock Dam as big bass have been reported this week on plastics and spinner baits or live shrimps.
