FROM THE EDITOR

T

here is a lot of pride surrounding this week’s cover image. It speaks volumes. This image pays homage to a great Australian – a man of good character and good sportsmanship who sets a great example for many young people. Our magazine’s cover also recognises the role sport plays in Australian culture, and the respect we as a nation have for our athletes. However, most importantly, it acknowledges the important contribution Indigenous Australians make in their country. This cover image represents respect, support and the importance of honouring Australians from all backgrounds, races and cultures. We had the honour of speaking with Johnathan Thurston two weeks out from State of Origin game two. It turned out to be his last. It is a devastating end to what has been a stellar Origin career. And, although one chapter is closing, another will continue for the much-loved Queenslander. It could be said that JT’s greatest work is yet to come as he continues his contribution towards improving the lives of young Australians and he helps to forge a stronger path to reconciliation. As someone who spent a large portion of her life living, studying and working within a multicultural, Indigenous community, I am happy to know that community leaders such as JT are committed to this important journey and are taking the time to make a vital difference.

QUICK CHAT

DIY GUY DITCHES THE CITY First job? After leaving school I worked in a SCUBA diving shop serving, learning to service dive gear and training as a dive master. What are you currently working on? My work and home life tend to blur a lot as most of my work projects happen at home. We are planning renovations and extensions, a lot of which I’ll be doing as an ownerbuilder. Many of the projects will then end up in print and on video for my YouTube channel. Your family includes. . . It’s complicated. At home is our daughter Amber and my wife Denise (and our two cats, Mr Yorky and Ginger). In New South Wales is my 92-year-old mum and my sister, but I’m adopted and tracked down my family around 10 years ago, so now have a sister and three brothers in Queensland, a sister in the UK and my dad near Rocksberg. First car? I loved it, but it was a terrible 1978 four-door Ford Escort GL. It was that what-were-theythinking baby-poo brown colour. Favourite book? I have a serious soft spot for sci-fi author Philip K. Dick, particularly Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? – better known as Blade Runner.

If you could change one thing on the Coast what would it be? Toss-up between better telecommunications (ADSL1 in the year 2017, seriously?) and transport to Brisbane. Is there an area in the world that would be better suited to high-speed rail than that route? Maximum of 30 minutes to Brisbane CBD should be the reality. Best day in your life? Three on equal footing I’m afraid. The day our beautiful daughter was born, the day Denise and I married and the day I met my birthmother for the first and only time. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? More a short period than a single day. I had been working in drama production at ABC TV on shows like Police Rescue and had a mid-20’s-life-crisis. I loved the job but knew I needed something else. From there I tossed it all in the air and started studying landscape and horticulture, beginning on a totally new career path.

“All of the lifestyle things that in Sydney you kid yourself about having…”

Best advice you’ve been given? My first mechanic said to me, ‘If you’ve a choice between a car with a sound engine but body rust or the opposite way around always pick the rust-free one because you can fix an engine.’ How long have you lived on the Sunshine Coast? Around 12 months. We’re newbies after escaping from Sydney. Spent years researching the right place and just kept coming back to the area. Why do you live here? It’s not Sydney. All of the lifestyle things that in Sydney you kid yourself about having access to, here you actually have on your doorstep and you have the time and energy to enjoy. The environment is beautiful, the people are friendly and there is a much more energetic and vibrant creative community.

What achievement are you most proud of? Career-wise it would have to be working with friend, colleague and renowned garden author Jennifer Stackhouse to provide all of the photos for her award-winning book Garden.

You are happiest when? I’m creating. Whether it’s writing an article, on a photo or video shoot, editing video, designing or building something, I just love the creative process. What frustrates you the most? People who don’t understand how to use roundabouts. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? Pay attention to your superannuation. Oh, and you can have fun AND take stuff seriously too. And don’t stand with your head near the bass-bin at that James Brown concert. Your hearing will regret it. Tea or coffee? Tea all the way. Different varieties — traditional and herbals — at different times of day.

A CENTRE TO UNCOVER THE WONDERS OF THE SUNSHINE COAST THE ecotourism centrepiece of Yaroomba Beach will be the worldstandard Coastal Discovery Centre. The Coastal Discovery Centre will be a celebrated destination in its own right, helping to nurture an appreciation of our landscape, of local Indigenous culture, and serving as the anchor for the public Coastal Discovery Trail that winds its way through the site to the beach. Overlooking the park in the centre of the village heart, the Coastal Discovery Centre will offer locals and tourists a range of experiences that will educate, inform and inspire, including permanent interactive displays and spaces for hands-on community workshops.

“Experiences that will educate, inform and inspire...” This is also where Yaroomba Beach will continue to develop our partnership with the University of the Sunshine Coast – providing support for their research into coastal ecology for better environmental outcomes and to enhance conservation of beaches, dunes and the ecosystems along the coastline.

COVER STORY

KICKING GOALS FOR ABORIGINAL AUSTRALIA NRL living legend Johnathan Thurston’s State of Origin career may have come to an abrupt end, but he’s just getting started with his life off the field, particularly when it comes to advocating for Indigenous Australians. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“I didn’t realise the impact that I could have... I am in a privileged position and I can certainly help to make a difference” Image: NRL.com

F

rom a wiry thin young man who struggled to get signed by any of the NRL feeder teams because he was “too small”, to becoming one of the world’s best rugby league players, Johnathan Thurston is the embodiment of what can be achieved when you combine passion with determination. The North Queensland Cowboys co-captain and State of Origin great – who kicked the winning field goal in the final minutes of last week’s Origin clash before a recurring shoulder injury forced a devastating early end to his season – has an undeniable on-field dominance, which prompts opposing teams to form entire defence plays based on slowing him down. But off the field, Thurston has come to be a respected and avid supporter of boosting opportunities for Indigenous Australians. As we approach NAIDOC Week, which runs from July 2 to 9, the Indigenous community will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Mabo decision and the 50th anniversary of the 1967 reform to allow Indigenous Australians to vote. Speaking to My Weekly Preview prior to the testing second Origin game, which saw his troubled shoulder re-injured by a tackle from Tyson Frizzell and a shock departure from both Origin and the upcoming World Cup series to undergo surgery, Thurston says he will continue to do what he can off the field to help to bridge education and health

gaps for Indigenous Australians. The ninth Closing the Gap Prime Minister’s Report, released earlier this year, shows key targets to halve the child mortality rate, close the gap on life expectancy, boost school attendance rates, halve the gap in reading and numeracy, and halve unemployment by 2018 are “not on track”. Despite Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders making up three per cent of the population, statistics show that there is a life expectancy gap of 10 years in women and up to 17 years in men; Indigenous Australians are four times more likely to be hospitalised for chronic conditions and 19.3 per cent of Indigenous families are living below the poverty line. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of the Bringing Them Home Report, which highlights the tragedy of the Stolen Generations leading to the National Apology in 2008. But the number of Aboriginal children living in out-of-home care has risen significantly since, with more children being taken from their homes for child welfare reasons. Reconciliation Australia is now working closely with the Federal Government to bring about a referendum seeking a change to the constitution that recognises Indigenous Australians and Thurston is among those who cannot wait for the milestone to be reached. Thurston says he always knew of his

Aboriginal heritage, with mother Debbie a proud Gunggari woman from Mitchell, a town 590 kilometres west of Brisbane, but it wasn’t until a training camp in 2010 that he felt compelled to find out more about what being an Indigenous Australian meant. “I didn’t know much about my family history, or where my mum grew up, and at a training camp before the inaugural Indigenous All Stars versus NRL All Stars exhibition match, Dr Chris Sarra asked us to line up into two groups; those who know

“…we have a long way to go to close and bridge the gap in Indigenous health and education issues” about their family history and culture, and those who didn’t,” he tells My Weekly Preview. “There was an even split, but I was one of those boys that didn’t know. So I spoke to my mum and got together about a dozen of my cousins and a few uncles and we hired a mini bus and drove out to Mitchell for the weekend. My uncle taught us traditional dances and told us some stories about his childhood. It was really an eye-opener, but it was also a really calming influence on me.”

The only hint of his signature comic kookaburra laugh, which is so popular it was once available to download as a ringtone, comes when Thurston talks about his attempts at playing the didgeridoo. But once he gets back on topic, Thurston talks seriously about the strong connection he felt to the land where his mother and her 12 siblings had been raised. While he had been representing his culture on the field as an Indigenous All Star and always donning a red, black and yellow mouthguard, finding that visceral connection spurred Thurston on to look at other ways he could make a positive difference to the indigenous community. “I didn’t realise the impact that I could have, and [that connection] helped me to realise that I am in a privileged position and I can certainly help to make a difference. “Anything to do with students is something that I’m passionate about, that’s where I like to put all of my energy. This is the next generation of our culture and I want to drive home to them that education is the key to bettering yourself and becoming a positive role model in your own community.” In his early teens, Thurston’s rugby league prowess was already shining through, but he quickly realised that opportunities like scholarships would not be available to him if he didn’t pull his socks up academically. Thurston has since become an ambassador for the Former Origin Greats’ myweeklypreview.com.au

COVER STORY

NATIONAL RECONCILIATION ARTIE (Achieving Results Through Indigenous Education) Academy, and the Cowboys’ Learn Earn Legend program as well as the recently opened Cowboys House, which provides supported accommodation for 25 young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from remote communities in north-west and Far North Queensland, enabling them to access high school education in Townsville. “None of these programs were around when I was in high school, especially dedicated for Indigenous people,” he says. “I want to be there to help them in every way possible and to try to drive home the message to others that these opportunities are there for their benefit, so they need to grab them with both arms.” Thurston has been an ambassador for the Queensland Reconciliation Awards for the past five years and has connected regularly with the State Government to share the impressive results, influence and success these programs have had. “I know the government is doing its best, but certainly we have a long way to go to close and bridge the gap in Indigenous health and education issues,” he says. “I always say that education is the key for our culture, we need to break the cycle and get these kids into school, where they can not only learn, but if they have a younger sister, cousin, or brother and they see them doing well at school, it has a snowball effect. This next generation can influence not just what happens in their homes, but also in their communities.” Thurston says he is proud of the NRL for continuing to embrace and celebrate Indigenous culture, with players from all 16 clubs taking to the field in specially-designed jerseys in recognition of the Indigenous Round in week 10 of the season. While he has made history in many ways throughout his career, Thurston says the 2015 NRL grand final, which the Cowboys took out over then captain Justin Hodges’ Brisbane Broncos, was made much more special in that it was the first time in the sport’s history that both grand final teams

University of the Sunshine Coast School of Health and Sport Sciences principal researcher Elizabeth Pressick agrees and has consulted with Indigenous elders and advisory groups to design the nine-week Gibir Galangur Program, which kicks off on July 13, to encourage Indigenous Australian men to play traditional sports to improve their health and wellbeing.

Elder Uncle Bill Buchanan, affectionately known in the Indigenous community as Blinky Bill, has been an integral part of the Sunshine Coast community for many years. Buchanan is a descendant of the Kooma/Gwamu First Nation Peoples of south-west Queensland and is a former Aboriginal co-chair and state coordinator for the Constitutional Recognition Coalition at Reconciliation Queensland. Buchanan was a senior advisor for the Sunshine Coast Council and was instrumental in writing the recently released Sunshine Coast Reconciliation Action Plan 2017–2019 (RAP). He is also a serving Aboriginal Elder in the Maroochydore Murri Court, which opened in February this year. He says the Sunshine Coast, which has an Indigenous population of about 5200, is on the front foot when it comes to opening the lines of communication with the Indigenous community. “The RAP was done in partnership and endorsed by Reconciliation Australia and one of the key things is the formation of a new First Peoples Advisory Committee, which will probably be the first time Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a direct input into how council services and programs meet their needs,” he says. “Other things we are looking at include improving participation rates of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people within the council and also providing supplier diversity, with procurement opportunities for Aboriginal businesses on the Coast. For every Aboriginal person that does have a job, that pulls five people out of poverty.” Buchanan says government initiatives have seen a greater number of Indigenous Australians receiving an education, but he worries that as the economy moves towards smart technologies and knowledge industries, the next generation will have “no guarantee they will actually be employed”. “These industries require significant investment and unfortunately, many Aboriginal families don’t have the capacity

to invest in those sorts of jobs, particularly now when so many in the industry are subcontractors and not necessarily working for employers,” he says. Buchanan says there are numerous groups around the country who are working tirelessly for Indigenous Australians to be recognised in the Australian Constitution. “I have worked for many different organisations and reconciliation can mean many different things, but I find that one thing remains consistent and that is largely that it will help to close the gap on the sort of disadvantage that Aboriginal and Torres Straight Island people are experiencing today,” he says. “The key elements we look at are institutional integrity, historical acceptance, equity and equality and more importantly having a united and common vision. “To me, it’s about people being aware that reconciliation is a national priority for the council and all levels of government and as such, in our communities we need to look at opportunities to progress reconciliation. That is really important.”

CELEBRATE OUR VOLUNTEERS AND THE COAST’S 50TH Volunteering Sunshine Coast is holding a dinner at the Maroochydore RSL on August 1 to celebrate both the naming of the region and the volunteering organisations and their contributions over the past 50 years. The Coast’s rich history will be brought to life in an audio visual display, celebrating the lifestyle, environment, and culture that is unique to the region. Tickets are $75 and are available by contacting 5443 8256.

FREE TALK: RELATIONSHIPS AND CANCER Managing relationships after a cancer diagnosis can be difficult and isolating. It is a topic Bloomhill Cancer Care will tackle in their next public presentation. It is not uncommon for relationships to be strained, and at times they can disintegrate under the pressures of a cancer diagnosis and treatment. On July 10 at 2pm, clinical psychologist Samantha Clutton (pictured) will explore some of the common relationship issues faced by people living with cancer and provide thoughtful reflections and strategies to enhance quality relationships in a free presentation at Bloomhill on Ballinger Road in Buderim. For more information or to register, contact 5445 5794.

GYMNASTS HAVE TEMPORARY HOME The Maroochy Beach Gymnastics Club has found a temporary home at Kunda Park to house its junior athletes until the fire-ravaged club house can be rebuilt. Club president Peter Dwan says it will take at least 12 months to rebuild the Wises Road clubhouse, which was burnt to the ground in a renovation accident on late May 29. There is enough equipment to allow 400 of the 1000 juniors to return to classes at the start of the next school term and the Australian Sports Foundation has launched a fundraising campaign to help the club pay for its new lease and more equipment.

Innovative University of the Sunshine Coast research into young drivers with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will examine the learners’ licensing experiences, with the goal of minimising any extra road safety risk. Psychology PhD student Clara Silvi from USC’s Adolescent Risk Research Unit, based at the University’s Thompson Institute, plans to survey and interview 90 learner drivers who have ASD and is calling learner drivers aged between 16 and 24 with an ASD diagnosis to volunteer. Contact clara.silvi@research.usc.edu.au or call 5430 1165.

FASHION FESTIVAL WILL SEND ONE LABEL TO PARIS One Sunshine Coast International Fashion Festival 2017 label will have the opportunity to secure invaluable international exposure during Paris Fashion Week later this year. Festival director Jacinta Richmond says one label will be chosen for showroom representation with Idao Consulting, a high-end retail partner, during Paris Fashion Week in September. Idao support fashion label business development in Europe, USA and Asia. “Normally [this is] a very expensive way to break in internationally, it is simply through years of working in this industry and developing relationships that this opportunity has come to us and us alone,” Richmond says. The festival will be held from October 20 to 21 at The Events Centre in Caloundra.

GEVA MENTOR WINS TWO PLAYER OF THE YEAR AWARDS While the on-court Super Netball competition wrapped up with a win for the Sunshine Coast Lightning in their inaugural season, the stars of the team’s players continue to rise. Captain Geva Mentor was named the Super Netball player of the year at the Australian Netball Awards in Melbourne last Saturday. She had the greatest number of deflections in the league and was second for rebounds and intercepts, leading the Lightning to earn the season record as the best defensive side. Mentor also took out Lightning’s player of the year award at the club’s gala awards night in Caloundra.

HOLLYWOOD STAR KEEPS STEVE IRWIN’S LEGACY ALIVE The late Steve Irwin will join the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Mary J. Blige and Simon Cowell in receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Irwin captured hearts around the world as The Crocodile Hunter and his star recognises the way he inspired a whole generation of Wildlife Warriors through his documentary series. Irwin’s nomination was sponsored by Visit Sunshine Coast. Terri Irwin says the star will ensure his conservation message continues to resonate for generations to come. “Steve always said that he didn’t care if anyone remembered him, as long as they remembered his message,” she says.

COAST A POPULAR WINTER HOTSPOT The Sunshine Coast has been named the second most popular winter holiday destination by holiday booking website Wotif. It was the Gold Coast that beat our region for the top spot, with Cairns, Port Douglas and the Hunter Valley rounding out the top five. The findings were made after Wotif examined data from accommodation searches for booking dates between June 6 and July 21. On a quirkier note, a Wotif spokesperson says 71 per cent of the kids who holiday in Queensland are most likely to enjoy exploring new places, while 57 per cent look forward to drinking and eating things they normally aren’t allowed.

The State of the Regions national report has shown the Sunshine Coast population has risen from 251,000 people in 2002 to 355,000 and the over 55 age category has risen from 27.5 per cent to 34.7 per cent. The region also has claimed one of the country’s fastest rises in household debt compared to income, with residents owing an average of 1.65 times their annual income, up from 1.08, 15 years ago. Despite employees working less hours for a lower pay rate than in 2012, wealth has risen from $797,000 per household to $844,000. Workers now earn an average of $33.90 per hour, down by almost $6 from 2002.

COAST SUBMARINE CABLE BID GETS SUPPORT Representatives from councils across Australia have supported a motion calling on the Federal Government to amend the Telecommunications Act 1997 to consider the Sunshine Coast Council’s application for a submarine cable protection zone to be declared offshore from the region. Mayor Mark Jamieson moved the motion at the Australian Local Government Association’s National General Assembly, saying “I trust the strong support from local governments across the nation for this initiative will assist in encouraging a more positive response from the Australian Communications and Media Authority and the Federal Government, with whom our council looks forward to working to achieve a positive result.”

PIONEERING STEPS COLLEGE AN AUSTRALIAN FIRST STEPS Pathways College opens the door to independence for people living with a disability. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

here was a mixture of nervousness and excitement as the first 11 STEPS Pathways College students walked through the doors of the brand new Caloundra facility last month. Now, they are well on their way to learning the skills they need to live an independent life. The college is the realisation of a long-held dream for STEPS managing director Carmel Crouch, who says while many people with a disability had the capacity to learn the skills that would see them living independently, there were no educational programs available in which students could learn these life skills in a way that would transform their approach to life – until now. The students have begun their 12-month course and will live on campus with their own bedroom, bathroom and patio along with a shared living room, kitchen and outdoor entertainment area. Crouch says they will have a combination of classroom work and hands-on training. “Things like learning how to budget, weekly meal planning, maintaining a tenancy, learning how to make good decisions and develop good relationships, learning how to cook nutritious meals, access community services, and even cleaning,” she says. “A lot of the things our students learn are skills that many of us do every day and simply take for granted. We make sure we keep things as practical as possible, learning by experience is a very important part of our students’ success.” Crouch says this is the first time the students have lived

Paul Amerena and his son, STEPS student Tom Amerena

The college was built in Caloundra in order to be close to the STEPS Australia Group head office and the experienced staff that work there. Crouch says they plan to expand the college model out to other areas as it is one that “will change the state of living for people with a disability in Australia”. But for now, they will be pouring all of their energy into the foundation students in order to ensure their experience is everything they hoped it would be. The college is 100 per cent funded by the STEPS charity and fundraising will continue to ensure more young people with a disability graduate from the college into the future. “There are lots of ways people can help, such as attending one of our fundraising events, the STEPS Grand Winter Ball in July is our major fundraising event for the College,” Crouch says. “People can also make a donation, volunteer their time, or speak to us about becoming a corporate sponsor.” To find out more about the STEPS Pathways College, visit stepspathways.com.au.

away from home and their parents have expressed gratitude for the opportunity for them to do so. “There’s really nothing like this around and the thought that their child will soon be living on their own and making decisions and choices about their own life is something parents all want for their kids,” she says. “The feedback we’ve received has been so positive and I guess it just reinforces why we’re doing all of this in the first place.”

The Australian Local Government Association National General Assembly of Local Government 2017 theme was Building Tomorrow’s Communities – one that aligned closely with what is underway here in our healthy, smart, creative region. In a great opportunity to showcase the Coast to a wide audience, I addressed the 800 mayors, councillors and senior local government representatives, highlighting our unparalleled opportunity to develop a new city centre from the ground up. In the new CBD, we will have a vibrant hub of commerce, technology, innovation, entertainment and inner-city living. This week there is another milestone as we start laying the first of 1.7 kilometres of underground pipes which comprise the Australian-first, underground Automated Waste Collection System. This innovation plus smart lighting, smart power, smart parking and smart transport are all being built in as we go. It’s a project we can all be proud to be a part of.

CONSERVING OUR LAND The rainforest habitat at Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve in Maleny will be protected, enhanced and expanded through the latest addition to our Environment Levy Land Acquisition Program. The 26.8-hectare property, located on the north-eastern boundary of the reserve, connects and expands the existing ecological networks in the area. Since the Environment Levy began in the 1990s, council has purchased almost 3000 hectares of land for conservation. More than 1080 hectares have been purchased since 2008. Recent acquisitions include 4.8 hectares in the heart of Buderim; 27.5 hectares of eucalypt and rainforest habitat in Buderim, on Crosby Hill Rd; and 80 hectares across a property on MacDonalds Rd, Bald Knob and at Burgess Avenue, Maleny. Land purchased through the Environment Levy helps conserve our native bushland, plants and animals for future generations.

MY OPINION

LIFE’S SHORT, DO IT NOW

ALL SYSTEMS GO FOR BUSINESS

The death of some close friends has given Sami Muirhead a wake-up call, reminding her that life is too short to deny ourselves the things we dream of.

Darrell Edwards says there are more opportunities than ever for Sunshine Coast businesses to embrace technology and become leading innovators.

M

y husband is having a midlife awakening. It sounds much nicer than a midlife crisis, don’t you think? And thankfully this middle-aged transformation does not include fast cars and younger, faster women. Well, not that I know about. There is a definite shift in my conservative partner that is undeniable. And it is happening with a few of my friends as well. They are re-evaluating what is important in life and throwing caution to the wind when it comes to spending money, earning money, how they spend their free time and in general just shaking up their lifestyles. I too am having a midlife awakening of sorts, but I don’t rush into anything, unless it’s a handbag sale. So I am slowly dipping my big toe into this new way of thinking that life is short and we do not have to always be sensible with big decisions and it’s OK to spend your valuable time exactly how you want to spend it. You see we have had a lot of death around us of late. Two of our friends have passed away far too young in the past fortnight. It’s that horrid C word. Cancer. Both men were fine husbands and fathers. They leave behind children who are in lower primary school. They are really just babes who now will live the rest of their lives

without their dads. One of those fine fathers, Andrew Finn, has had a really big impact on our lives. Finny lived a good and honest life and family was the most important thing to him. His dying wishes were to go to the park with his young daughter and to go to his local club where he often had a weekend lunch. Simple wishes that summed up a life lived with great kindness and grace. Life can deal such cruel blows. Finny’s Law has now been introduced as a term in our house. It basically means ‘do it now’ because life is short. It is a reminder to go overseas or take the new job because we are all mortal. Jump and the net will appear. Finny has reminded me not to snap at the kids and to make sure I am spending good time with my family. The rest he has taught us is still a bit of a blur as we come to terms with the loss of a really great bloke, but I have a funny feeling we will go on receiving his lessons. So perhaps we all need to embrace a midlife awakening. After all, the march of time keeps on stomping. Nicole Kidman turned 50 last week for crying out loud. I will submerge my big toe this week and by next week maybe just maybe I will be submerging my whole body and insist my husband buys the flash red sports car. The racy women however, need not apply.

“It is a reminder to go overseas or take the new job because we are all mortal”

I

t’s been over a year since I swapped the world of finance for a new career in semi-government. One thing I quickly learned is that the Sunshine Coast is a centre of innovation and original thought – particularly as it affects business. Our region is fast becoming recognised as the entrepreneurial capital of Australia, and I am proud of the role Regional Development Australia Sunshine Coast plays in this business revolution. The key to innovative success is collaboration – the building of partnerships and alliances by like-minded innovators. Innovation is certain to be stimulated by the recent $500,000 grant by the Queensland Government’s Advancing Regional Innovation Program to support innovation in small and medium-sized enterprises, and create jobs for the future. RDA Sunshine Coast, along with Sunshine Coast Council and Noosa Council, are the lead collaborators in this project, which aims to attract, connect and support innovators across our region. With more than 24 partners, the Coast submitted the largest collaboration under a single submission in the state. RDA Sunshine Coast has tried to make a difference to established businesses by developing programs that will enable, upskill and equip business owners for the rapidly changing environment. For example, our Speed It Up campaign was launched last year in response to

feedback from the business community that inadequate broadband speed was harming their operations. Later, we developed a key partnership with the Queensland Government Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation to develop and deliver the Digital Scorecard Program. In partnership with TAFE Queensland East Coast and Sunshine Coast Council, we launched the Introduction to Coding course, after research showed our region lacked vocational or tertiary training in coding. We are in a time of global technology disruption, and it is a national, state and local imperative that we innovate and build relevant solutions that generate global revenues and create local jobs. More than 26 events have been planned across the Sunshine Coast to encourage innovation through collaboration. They include Start-up Weekend, Start-up Weekend Youth, Generation Innovation, Grow Coastal, Innovation Centre demo days, GovHack, Hackfest, Pitch Comps, Telstra Technology awards, 15 co-working spaces, Sunshine Coast Region Innovation Programs, Pitch Bureau, Bright Spark Lab, Myriad, Virtual Reality Art competition in schools, boot camps, and Mentor Blaze. Many are advertised on RDA Sunshine Coast’s website or newsletter or on Digital Sunshine Coast’s website. The next generation of global start-up companies can be born right here.

Darrell Edwards is the chief executive officer for Regional Development Australia Sunshine Coast.

PROFILE

CLASS CLOWN BACK FROM THE BIG SMOKE After performing to capacity crowds at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, comedian Ben Knight is excited to be returning to the Sunshine Coast with his solo show, The Parent/Teacher Interview. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

P

arent-teacher interviews are rarely a barrel of laughs, but comedian Ben Knight sees the funny side of the sometimes tense, often awkward situation parents and teachers find themselves in a couple of times a year. Knight grew up in Wurtulla and moved to Melbourne three years ago to pursue a career as a comedian, writer and actor and has quickly found success, appearing in Offspring and Upper Middle Bogan and winning a lead role in the new ABC TV series, The Warriors. Earlier this year, his musical comedy show The Parent/ Teacher Interview sold out at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and now he’s bringing the show home to the Coast. He says the show is a brutally honest musical/ standup fusion with a hilarious take on what teachers really think about parents, kids and the education system. The future looks bright for the charismatic Knight, who cites Tim Minchin, Flight of the Conchords, Ricky Gervais and Louis CK as some of the comedians who inspire him. He has the kind of down-to-earth, quick-witted humour Aussies love, a character trait he shares with his family, who love a bit of banter. “I went to Caloundra High School and I won ‘class clown’ in Grade 12,” he laughs. “Mum and Dad were very proud of me – but I think it had more to do with me looking like a clown than being funny.” “I was terrified the first time I did standup comedy. The first one I ever did, a heap of mates came to the Sit Down Comedy Club in Brisbane. I forgot the words and froze for 10 seconds, then one of my mates started cracking up laughing and I ended up getting through to the finals. “It’s pretty full-on, standing on stage baring your soul. Playing music is fine; someone will clap even if your song is pretty shit. Comedy is so beautiful, you instantly know if you’re good or not. The thing about comedy is you have to be grounded and have a good understanding of who you are. One night you can destroy it and go absolutely awesome. You walk home thinking, I’ve clocked comedy, I’m the best, why aren’t I on TV? The next night you could be like, I’m giving up, I’m crap, I’m going back to teaching.” Knight gave up his career as a primary school teacher to pursue a career in performance, not because he didn’t enjoy teaching kids, but because he was fed up with the bureaucracy. After teaching at Meridan State College and in an Aboriginal community, he spent time teaching kids in Guatemala and Peru, where he discovered a talent for

helicopter parents. “They’re the main ones I go after,” he says. “There are a lot of hippies on the Sunshine Coast; or hippie/bogans. You find ‘em everywhere. You’ve got to have a laugh at them. Then there’s the helicopter parents who want to tell you how to do your job. I was pretty good at letting a lot of parent comments go through to the keeper and choosing my moments.” Knight says his show is definitely not for kids, but is a fun night for adults who aren’t offended by a bit of bad language. He encourages both parents and teachers to let go of their inhibitions and have a good laugh at themselves. While his success in the comedy scene has enabled him

“I forgot the words and froze for 10 seconds, then one of my mates started cracking up laughing…”

creating funny versions of songs he knew on guitar to get a laugh out of the kids. Three months immersed in the creative atmosphere of New York sealed the deal and he moved to Melbourne as soon as he returned to Australia. “I loved teaching but I hated all the hoops you have to jump through,” he says. “You have to fill out a risk assessment form for a kid to use a pair of scissors. My big thing was, I really believe in teaching kids as whole students. There’s emotional and intellectual intelligence. You go to school for the academic intelligence, but I always felt my strengths were teaching kids emotional intelligence as well.” After eight years as a primary school teacher, Knight had plenty of material to draw on for his show, in which he divides parents into three categories: hippies, bogans and

A community foundation for us all

to quit the call centre job he took on as a way to pay the bills when he first landed in Melbourne, Knight says he’s just getting started. “Comedy has been a gateway to acting and writing, that’s really what I’m interested in,” he says. “I just finished filming The Warriors and it was incredible, it was one of the best experiences of my life. Working with Lisa McCune, Vince Colosimo and John Howard, I had to pinch myself a lot of the time standing next to those people. I learnt a lot, not just from them, but the whole crew.” He’s now writing his own TV series called The Substitute, about the trials and tribulations of a substitute teacher and preparing to play to his home crowd, which he says is more daunting than fronting up to a packed house in Melbourne. “I always feel like there’s going to be more pressure because there’s more people I know in the crowd,” he says. “There’s more expectation... make us laugh, funny boy!”

Microdermabrasion and LED Healite II at Laser Clinics Australia, Kawana Shopping World. By Leigh Robshaw. A new Laser Clinics Australia store opened at Kawana in April and I was invited to try some treatments. After cleansing, my therapist Sarah passed a diamond-tip microdermabrasion wand across my face, which felt like a tiny vacuum cleaner sucking up my dead skin cells. Next, I had 13 minutes under a yellow LED Healite II machine, which delivers pure light in precise wavelengths to soothe the skin and enhance the body’s natural recovery process. Sarah checked multiple times if I was comfortable during the process. The light felt quite warm, but pain-free. Afterwards, my skin felt incredibly smooth and soft. I was a little pink, but it settled after about half an hour and then my skin was absolutely glowing. I was impressed with the professionalism and excellent service at the clinic and would recommend it to anyone wishing to refresh their appearance in a medical-standard setting.

RECENT MEASURES TO COOL HOUSING

R

egulators have begun to ramp up measures to cool housing and mitigate risks around rising household debt. Of most concern is the overheated markets in Sydney and Melbourne. Initial directives from the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) in December 2014 that authorised deposit taking institutions (ADIs) limit investor loan growth to 10 per cent, and assume a minimum lending rate of seven per cent when assessing a borrowers’ ability to service a loan, were followed in March this year with the additional requirement that new interest-only loans be limited to 30 per cent of total new residential mortgage lending. Within this, ADIs must place strict internal limits on the volume of interest only

lending at loan-to-valuation ratios above 80 per cent and ensure strong scrutiny and justification of any cases where interest-only lending is done at LVRs above 90 per cent. Accordingly, to manage the pace of growth, the banks have continued to raise interest rates, primarily targeting interestonly and investor loans. These additional measures could meaningfully impact lending growth. It is estimated that at the time of APRA’s announcement, interest-only lending represented around 40 per cent of approvals. So already this could see total lending fall by about 10 per cent. If there is no sustainable cooling in housing and leverage, APRA will likely intensify its efforts. There is still some way to go before the RBA will feel comfortable that housing market activity has cooled, but at some point, it will give the RBA scope to take a more dovish stance on monetary policy. Hence, we are still keeping a view that the RBA’s next move is more likely a cut than a hike. Justin Scattini is an Authorised Representative (no 427053) of Ord Minnett Ltd, AFS licence 237121.

Is pain, weight, infertility, fatigue or disease affecting your life quality? Statistics show 1 in 20 Australians are affected by autoimmune disease. Could you be at risk? We hear the word ‘epidemic’ a lot in terms of health and we know that as a global population we are battling with pain, fatigue, disease, weight and obesity. But what if there’s more going on beneath these surface symptoms? An autoimmune disease can develop in any system of the body. The symptoms can be varied or even random, ranging from headaches, aches and pains, constant infections and flus, chronic fatigue, irritable bowels, infertility, poor memory or physical signs such as weight gain or hair loss. The most commonly diagnosed autoimmune diseases are thyroid issues such as Hashimoto’s or Graves’ disease, rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and type I diabetes. Known risk factors are in some part genetic, though may be exacerbated by a hyperactive immune system, triggered by chemical, food or environment toxins, combined with stress, inflammation, or virus. There are other common risk factors that are completely preventable, such as vitamin and mineral deficiency, or an incorrect diet for your body type and ancestry.

Autoimmune disease is occurring more often in women, affecting 1 in 20 people, and sufferers are increasingly developing multiple diseases. Focusing on the underlying commonality between your symptoms and a thorough investigation of what your triggers may be, we are able to stop the progression of an autoimmune disease before it’s too late, and reduce multiple disease processes. Autoimmune disease does not have to be a life sentence. Our integrative practitioners conduct comprehensive testing and screening for food sensitivities, check for bacterial or viral pathogens and determine nutritional deficiencies, along with hormone levels. Correct identification helps to remove the current triggers, resolving your symptoms quickly, and stabilising the disease. Don’t let it rule your health for the rest of your life.

RUMOUR HAS IT

If you missed out on seeing Adele, this is the next best thing. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

N

aomi Price may have sprung to national attention when she became Ricky Martin’s leading lady in the 2015 season of The Voice Australia, but the powerful songstress was an accomplished performer long before then. Price has more than a dozen state and national musical theatre production castings to her name and has performed with artists such as Ricky Martin, Tim Finn, Guy Sebastian, James Morrison, Kate Miller-Heidke, Troy Cassar-Daley and Max Pellicano, and Broadway composer Scott Alan. But the Brisbane-based performer says one of her greatest achievements, the show Rumour Has It, which won a coveted Matilda Award for Best Musical or Cabaret, was the result of a “happy accident”. Sitting down with best friend and co-director of The Little Red Theatre Company Adam Brunes with a glass of wine, they were joking about how pop sensation

Adele’s speaking voice was so different to her singing voice. It then became the basis for a show. Price says she has never met Adele in person, but revelled in the opportunity to see her live for both of her epic performances in Brisbane earlier this year. “I thought she was so comfortable in her own skin, which is something you can’t teach someone,” she says. “Nothing about the show changed [after I saw her live], it just hit home for me that we were bang on the money with the way we portrayed her in the show. She was so funny in the concert; something we always had in our show was a lot of comedy.” There is no doubt the two-and-a-halfhour show full of power ballads is physically demanding, but Price says she “falls in love” with Adele’s music every time she performs. The show, which features a six-piece band, is recommended for ages 15 and up due to frequent coarse language.

JUSTICE CREW KEEP IT REAL Justice Crew stormed into the spotlight and captured hearts around the nation as they took out Australia’s Got Talent in 2010. Lukas Bellesini, Paul Merciadez, John Pearce, Samson Smith and Solo Tohi ventured from their heavy dance backgrounds into the world of music and have released several chart-smashing hit including Boom Boom, Best Night and Everybody. Their biggest hit to date, Que Sera, spent nine weeks at number one on the ARIA singles chart and they have toured with industry heavyweights One Direction, Jason De Rulo, Chris Brown, Kesha and Pitbull. Justice Crew are now destined for the Coast on their Pop Dat Buckle Part 2 tour and Pearce says they can’t wait to hit up the beaches when they get here. “We love performing there and having everyone come to see us. There’s lots of love in the room and the vibe on stage is very cool when everyone gets involved and sings along with us,” he tells My Weekly Preview. Pearce says he never imagined their time on AGT would lead to a music career. “At first we were standoffish (when approached by Sony Music Australia) but we decided as a group to on any opportunity and give it a go and things might turn out for the best,” he says. “We have learnt so much about the music scene and my passion for music has

grown over time. It’s always a lot of hard work behind the scenes, networking and keeping an open mind, and learning through other people. “It’s been a rollercoaster with some real high moments, some real low moments, and one big learning curve… and it’s still going.” Pearce says it had been tough to see some of the songs they poured their heart and soul into not performing well on the charts. “You feel like it’s coming to an end, and you start having second thoughts about what you are going to do. But at your lowest point, that’s when you work the hardest. That’s when change happens.” – Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane Justice Crew will be at The Events Centre on July 6 at 7pm. Tickets are $43.80 from theeventscentre.com.au.

OUR 50TH YEAR

THE INTRIGUING CASE OF THE BUSH CHIMNEYS Hidden in bushland at Tanawha, two brick chimneys are all that remain of an ambitious but ill-fated plan to build a sanatorium north of Brisbane in the 1880s, writes Dot Whittington.

N

ewspapers of the day reveal little about the project which ended before it began, when bushfires swept through the area on top of the hill near Forest Oak Court. The timber building was destroyed before a fire could be lit in the grates or a patient admitted. Two tall chimneys among the trees are the only proof it ever existed. The first clues come from the Maroochydore Advertiser of May 31, 1961 when a report by the Maroochy Shire Health Inspector G.R. Orr, on the site “approximately 400 yards west of the Buderim MountainBruce Highway intersection”, was printed: “Mr George Burnett (aged 81) one of the oldest residents of the area was approached and recalled the course of events through the years. The chimneys, constructed of brick and mortar formed part of a 22-room structure erected by Dr Rendle as a convalescent home. Work on the building commenced in 1880, (this is more likely to be 1884) materials being transported from the south firstly by ship to a landing in the Mooloolah River known as the Old Banana Shed, and thence to the site by bullock waggon. Mr Burnett at the age of five, accompanied his father to an auction sale of furniture and effects occasioned by the failure of the venture. “The chimneys, approximately 30 feet and 22 feet high respectively each have two fire places suggesting they were located in walls dividing rooms. Fire bricks used in the chimneys bear the brand Campbell. The remains of house stumps are also discernible among the trees. “Despite the ravages of time the chimneys are in good state of repair.”

Chimneys in the bush and (inset) Dr Rendle Nothing much happened after that until 1992, when Nev Wilson was subdividing his property and agreed that the prime elevated site of the chimneys should be part of his parkland dedication so they might be retained for posterity. It was reported: “Mr Wilson said it appeared that there had been one big timber building which had burnt down and that there had also been a blacksmith’s forge on the same site. Floor joins are visible on the chimneys. ‘It appears they were constructed with the building and no scaffolding was used. I imagine it would have had a highpitched ceiling’.” Robert Sly of Montville, whose father bought the Tanawha property from Buderim

pioneer Bert Guy in 1918, also helped fill the gaps. He knew the building was not a hospital but a sanatorium, and that he had spoken to the daughter of Dr Rendle in the 1950s, although her memories were hazy as she had only been a child at the time. “It was quite a pretentious place in those days but it was no sooner completed than it burnt down. It was never used at all,” he said. The project is credited to Dr Richard Rendle who took up a selection of 260 hectares of portion 201 on March 26, 1884 and was granted freehold title in 1889. He had arrived in Brisbane in 1876, as surgeon superintendent on board the Queen of Nations and set up practice as a surgeon and apothecary in Queen Street. In 1886, he became secretary of the new Medical Society of Queensland and in 1888 unsuccessfully ran for the seat of Moreton. He was also on the board of management of the Mutual Life Association of Australasia, alongside Henry James Oxley and Samuel Griffith who was Queensland premier from 1883-88 and a principal author of the Australian constitution. Dr Rendle never lived at Tanawha but he employed three bailiffs (Thomas Daniell, Charles Simmonds and Josiah Box) to satisfy the conditions for selection and carry out the required improvements. He was prominent in Brisbane society before his empire collapsed and he went into liquidation in 1894. Whether the Tanawha project contributed to his downfall is not known. Dr Rendle died at Kingaroy on August 10, 1907. Little was written about his Tanawha project, but the chimneys still stand tall as ghosts in the bushland, recalling the heyday of the ambitious Dr Rendle.

THIS MONTH IN HISTORY The first white settler in Montville was Thorvald Peter Ludwig Weitenegar (also spelt Weitemeyer), a Danish timber getter and his Scottish wife who made their selection in what was called Razorback in June 1887.

DID YOU KNOW? • When Maroochy Shire Council decided to open a council-managed caravan park at Alexandra Headland in 1952, it was the first council-sponsored caravan park in Australia, recognising the growing popularity of caravanning and its importance to tourism. • The University of the Sunshine Coast was Queensland’s first new university in more than 20 years. Until then, the Coast was the largest area in Australia without its own university. It opened as a university college on a 100 hectare site at Sippy Downs in 1996 and was renamed University of the Sunshine Coast in 1999. The 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast will be celebrated on August 1, 2017. In the lead-up to the occasion, My Weekly Preview will each week take a look into our region’s past.

BOKARINA BEACH BUZZ EXCITES BUYERS

One of the last substantial beachfront land releases on the east coat of Australia has entered the market.

M

ore than 220 people attended a special preview event to check out the plans and pricing for Bokarina Beach’s first home sites. The premium mixed-use residential, retail and tourism hub is a key component of the $5-billion Oceanside community and one of the last remaining developable parcels of beachfront land of its size on the east coast of Australia. Stockland Sunshine Coast regional manager Ben Simpson says the first land release includes a wide range of home sites ranging in size from 250 metres squared to 480 metres squared. They are priced from $319,000 to $639,000. Construction on the first home sites has begun and the community will be developed in stages, with construction expected to be completed on the final stage by around 2020. The community will eventually comprise approximately 160 home sites, 130 terrace homes and 800 beachside and north-facing parkfront apartments.

CONSTRUCTION BEGINS ON HARMONY’S FIRST HOMES

Daniel Clark, Mike Nancarrow and Anthony Demiris

Palmview’s largest masterplanned community continues to grow, with construction starting on the first homes. There will be a hive of activity at Harmony over the next six months as construction ramps up and more home owners start to see their dreams become a reality at Harmony. AVID Property Group Queensland General Manager Bruce Harper says builders are on site to start construction on homes as part of the first land release. “It’s great to see the development coming together, having spent a cumulative 10 years planning the masterplanned community,” Harper says. “We’ll soon see Harmony grow into a

thriving community and we can’t wait to welcome our first residents later this year.” Harmony’s first home buyer Daniel Clark says he is looking forward to construction starting on his new home. “It is very exciting to get out on site and see the construction progressing at Harmony. “Having downsized to a smaller sized block will mean less time spent on maintenance and more time for the important things in life. “I have always wanted to live close to the beach. It will be such a treat living a short drive to so many great beaches. “I love that my block is so private and there will be lots of green, open spaces in

the community. “I am particularly looking forward to exploring the Grand Linear Park once it’s completed. My three grandchildren will love running around in all that open space.” One of Queensland’s most awarded home builders, Stylemaster Homes, is set to deliver Mr Clark’s new four-bedroom, open plan home at Harmony. Work is well underway on Harmony’s Display World, which is set to be Queensland’s largest display village north of the Brisbane River. It will showcase 43 quality homes from an experienced team of 25 national and local builders.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Wow, tell me you all scored fun waves last weekend? That said, I did hear that the swell was hitting too straight for the beaches, but man was it fun. I cannot believe the sand build-up around Point Cartwright. Not in 35 years on the Coast have I seen it like that. It’s certainly worth a look. And, how good has the weather been? Just fantastic. This weekend does not look the same, but it should be a bit of fun. Get amongst it as you are a long time dead. J-Bay isn’t far away, I reckon Julian has unfinished business.

You wear these on your feet

ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20)

TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)

Resist the overwhelming urge to be a bossy ram! The full moon charges up your career and family zones so apply the brakes and think before you speak. When it comes to your Aries aspirations, the main quality you need to cultivate is patience.

Friday is the day when business, finance and real estate are all favoured. Then your communication and learning zones are activated by the full moon. So it’s time to exercise your brain as you communicate as creatively as possible.

Stop gallivanting around in a general fluster and instead focus on revamping your close relationships. With vivacious Venus shifting into your sign (until July 31) it’s time to charge up your charisma and call in a few old favours.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

Crabs are ruled by the silvery moon so you can’t help but be affected by this week’s full moon. It fires up a partnership problem that’s been brewing. But if you become unreasonable then it won’t help matters.

Prepare to sparkle and shine this week, as the sun links up with Neptune. Creativity and selfexpression are highlighted. If you find yourself being drawn into a conflict on Thursday, then use your intuition and charm to slide out of the situation.

Your private nature is emphasised from Thursday onwards, when Mercury (your patron planet) shifts into your seclusion zone. So make sure you connect with like-minded folk who understand your particular peccadillos and need for privacy.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

Librans are matchmakers and love to counsel others. This week, with Venus (your power planet) shifting into Gemini, there’ll be two distinct sides to every relationship story. So, when giving advice, make sure you communicate clearly.

Expect plenty of calls, emails, texts, and snail mail. If you are dealing with important business matters, then a conservative approach reaps rewards. Protecting and stabilising (and enjoying) current resources is preferable to taking a chance.

Communicating with friends and colleagues from other countries is favoured, as you extend your social circle to include a cosmopolitan new crowd. But the full moon stimulates your money zone so it’s not a good week to go on a shopping spree.

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

Under the Capricorn full moon, concentration is high and your attention to detail is even better than usual. So any work you do will be of a high standard. Couples – it’s a wonderful week to work on the love and commitment between you.

Don’t worry if you temporarily lose momentum and question your goals for the future. The dreams you dream now will manifest further down the track (especially if they involve work). You just need to be patient and have faith in the process.

This week’s terrific sun/Neptune trine activates your creative and contemplative side. So it’s the perfect time to lose yourself in an artistic project. Dream big dreams on the weekend, when the full moon urges you to list your goals for the future.

Solve all the clues and reveal the eight-letter word spelled down the middle of the grid.

THE LAST WORD

IT’S NOT JUST COMMON SENSE Richard O’Leary meets a billionaire and learns the secret formula for running a successful business.

I

had coffee with a billionaire the other day. Not bragging, just saying. His wealth is neither here nor there to me, but it does prove his attitude to business works – for him at least. The secret formula? T-I-L. Trust. Integrity. Loyalty. He explained it this way. You can’t half trust someone. You either trust them or you don’t. Only do business with people you trust. A person has integrity or they don’t. Only deal with people who have integrity. And loyalty? Always employ someone who is really good at their job and 100 per cent loyal over someone who is excellent at their job and only 85 per cent loyal.

Seems to make sense, and it has served him well. Now some people may say all of those things he was talking about were just plain old common sense. But I dislike that phrase. I think the term common sense is often used by people who know how to do something and look down at others who can’t do it. My natural aversion to the expression reaches way back to my childhood when my father used to explain away anything that he would do, and we kids couldn’t do. Fixing a chair. Hanging a door. Building a house. It helps when you are a carpenter, which my dad was and still is. His ability to do those things was the result of being taught, trying it himself, making mistakes, and learning from them. By writing it off as common sense he

produced three boys who can’t fix a chair, hang a door or build a house (to be fair to him, we didn’t show a hell of a lot of interest either). This means, all these years later, when he comes to our houses he ends up doing all those odd jobs that accumulate over the months. And I have to say over that coffee with one of Australia’s richest men, he never mentioned common sense once. He did talk about hard work, taking risks and making the most of good luck when it comes your way. And of course T.I.L. Which may explain Voltaire’s pithy “Common sense is not so common”. Although as in most things, I prefer Einstein’s theory on it: “Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age 18”. olearylastword@gmail.com
