THE FIRST WORD
ISSUE 462 August 18, 2017
This grown up play date cabaret comedy all about our first childhood BFF, Doll by Babushka, is at the Lake Kawana Community Centre on September 2 at 7.30pm. It will be a fun night out, covering everything from Kate Bush to Queen and Guns ‘n’ Roses to Destiny’s Child. Recommended for people aged over 15. My Weekly Preview is giving away one double pass to the show.
FROM THE EDITOR
t wasn’t until recent years that I discovered the virtues of op shopping. I have always donated unwanted clothes, but buying secondhand clothing was not something I did. When my mum started volunteering at a local op shop, it opened my eyes – and closet – to the wonders of recycling textiles, and supporting a charity. What I wasn’t aware of were the staggering figures associated with our shopping habits. No less than 6000 kilograms of recycled clothes are thrown out every 10 minutes. Every 10 minutes – you read that correctly. Furthermore, if one million people bought their next item of clothing secondhand, we would save six million kilograms of carbon pollution from impacting the Earth. To put it in perspective, six million kilograms of CO2 is equivalent to driving a car for 26.6 years non-stop. This week, journalist Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane opens the closet door on fast fashion’s big issue and speaks with the ABC’s War on Waste presenter Craig Reucassel. This story is sure to have you rethinking your future shopping choices. Also this edition, we have our monthly My health feature, a bumper edition of property and a double pass to giveaway to the Lake Kawana Community Centre’s latest comedy show. Happy reading!

CHAMPION MAKER What are you currently working on? I work at the University of the Sunshine Coast and my role involves managing a team of technicians who support the teaching and research activities for Sport & Exercise Science, Nutrition & Dietetics, Occupational Therapy and Education. Semester II is in full swing so it’s a really busy time for us all. My nights and weekends are spent working on my PhD as they have been for the last five years. I don’t get out much. Your family includes. . . My rock of support, partner Dr Grus Farley, my two beautiful daughters Kelly Jane (her partner, Lili) and Ashleigh (her partner, Ryan) plus Emmett the cat. First car? Canary yellow Holden HJ panel van. It cost $1200, had a lot of hidden rust but I drove it to Melbourne from the Gold Coast when I was 18 in just over 24 hours. It was a good car.
IMAGE: TRACY NAUGHTON
Favourite book? I have so many but I really love One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It transports me to a mysterious world with the gypsies.
BIO Marcoola Beach local Ava Kerr was recently named Exercise & Sports Science Australia’s Accredited Exercise Scientist of the Year. The University of the Sunshine Coast researcher helps push elite athletes to their limits and has worked with the Sunshine Coast Lightning netball players, the USC Spartans’ Olympic and Paralympic swimmers, Mark Visser and Chris Vermeulen. She is in the final stages of a five-year PhD.
8 My Weekly Preview | August 18, 2017
If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? For people to be more mindful of how they dispose of their rubbish e.g. by reduction, reusing, recycling. We live in a beautiful place in the world. Let’s keep it that way. Best day in your life? The days, 13 months apart, that my two daughters were born. They are my raison d’être and always will be. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? When I received my final results for my Bachelor of Science (Sport & Exercise) degree. I received a grade point average of 6.7 out of a possible 7. I was also working out of five fitness centres on the Sunshine Coast, raising two small children and working as office manager for an earthmoving business.
“Spend time reflecting on what really matters to you then set your compass and go for it”
What are you reading now? The 380 references for the literature review of my PhD thesis. Once I submit my thesis, I’ll finish Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman and Birdie by Tracey Lindberg. Favourite song? Karma Police by Radiohead for introspection. Glen Coco by Chynna for when I’m training in the gym. The Less I Know the Better by Tame Impala, ironic considering what I’m doing right now.
Best advice you’ve been given? Don’t carry the mountains you were only meant to climb, which could be interpreted as the song from the Disney movie Frozen – Let It Go, which a three-year-old sang to me, repeatedly for three hours, from the plane seat in front of me. It’s forever embedded in my mind. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Marcoola Beach when there is no one on it.
What achievement are you most proud of? My two beautiful, intelligent daughters who never cease to fill my heart with pride and gratitude. You are happiest when? Surfing an uncrowded wave at my home break followed by coffee on my deck.
What frustrates you the most? Climate change denialists and those with misogynist/homophobic/racist attitudes. It’s time to evolve folks.
How do you deal with your frustrations? The weights room in the gym is first and foremost, then surfing my local beach break, then my yoga practice. If you could tell your 18-year-old self, anything what would it be? Spend time reflecting on what really matters to you then set your compass and go for it. Do not accept anything less than the best for yourself. Pay no mind to the opinions of others – they probably know less than you do therefore, ‘to thine own self, be true’. Tea or coffee? As for all PhD students, we take our coffee intravenously. NRL or AFL? AFL. My dad was born and raised in Richmond, so Tigers all the way.

WAR ON WASTE: NAVIGATING THE FASHION TREND MILL Australians love fashion, but as the ABC’s Craig Reucassel discovered, we love it a little too much. With the fashion industry one of the world’s most polluting, is it time we got a dressing-down? WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
The average Australian buys 27 kilograms worth of textiles every year, just 10 kilograms behind Americans
hen we think of pollution, we envision black smoke plumes billowing from chimney stacks, beaches littered with cigarette butts and discarded plastics, and oil slicks sitting atop pristine oceans. We don’t think about the clothes we are wearing – but we should. After all, the fashion industry is the world’s second most polluting industry. It involves farming, harvesting, manufacturing, shipping and ultimately disposal. Every step has an impact on the environment. On top of this, the evolution of seasonal fashion cycles into weekly must-have crazes on the ever-turning fast fashion trend mill has seen low-cost, low-quality clothing becoming the norm. And it is being used at a rapid rate. Australians spend $5 billion on fashion each year and more than half a million tonnes of textiles and leather end up in landfill in the same period of time. We are second only to North Americans when it comes to demand for textiles, with the average Australian buying 27 kilograms worth of textiles every year, just 10 kilograms behind Americans. Staggering Roy Morgan Research has found 1.7 million Aussies are buying at least one pair of jeans in any four-week period. It is a strange concept for former Chaser presenter Craig Reucassel, who presented the ABC’s War on Waste mini-series.
12 My Weekly Preview | August 18, 2017
Reucassel was in his comfort zone when looking at farming and household waste and the recycling habits of both households and businesses, but when he came to the feature on fashion, he was clearly in foreign territory. Talking to four young teenagers with a passion for fashion and daily shopping excursions, Reucassel was quickly called out for wearing holey Converse sneakers, which he admitted he bought two years ago. “The whole point of me doing (the show) is that I wasn’t an expert. I wanted to show
made clothes a lot cheaper, sometimes less than a cup of coffee, so people can buy them all the time. This means there is less value associated with them and they become a disposable item.” Reucassel says he was shocked to find so many people buy clothes and don’t even wear them before eventually taking them to op shops with the original tags still attached. To create a visual representation of the volume of clothes thrown away or donated to charity, the War on Waste crew set about
“So we ended up with a mountain that showed how much was thrown away in just 10 minutes, which is 6000 kilograms worth” Craig Reucassel
people that you don’t have to be a highprofile person to make quite a big impact and I was impressed that some of the everyday Australians we interacted with made more of a difference than we expected,” he tells My Weekly Preview. “Not being someone really in tune with fashion, I found the speed and turnover is quite phenomenal. What it has done is
building a mountain of clothes in Sydney’s bustling Martin Place. “Initially we wanted to show how many clothes were thrown away in an hour, but we quickly learned that would literally fill Martin Place, it was quite surprising how much it was. So we ended up with a mountain that showed how much was thrown away in just 10 minutes, which is 6000 kilograms worth.”
“I think people were surprised by the size of it. People were starting to think about their own purchases. There was a girl standing there with an H&M bag thinking, ‘I’m part of this’.” While Australia was a world leader in recycling and pioneered paper recycling programs in the 1960s, Reucassel says fast fashion is proving to be harder to deal with. “There are some early stages of processes through which you can recycle clothes, but it’s certainly not at the stage where it can deal with the quantities that we are throwing out,” he says. “We need more awareness and breakthroughs in technology, which will come when more people actively start looking for and demanding that option.” Australia has a culture of donating goods to charity, which is a win/win situation when you are diverting clothing from landfill and helping not-for-profit organisations to fund their much-needed projects. But some items can’t be used by charities, despite your good intentions. If you buy a new T-shirt for $3, for example, it’s not going to stand the test of time. Bloomhill Cancer Care has donation bins at seven locations on the Coast and collects an average of 12 bin loads each week. Of the clothes donated, 50 per cent go into the Coast’s op shops, 40 per cent is ‘white bagged’ and sent overseas to be reused by myweeklypreview.com.au
14/08/2017 1:58:32 PM
COVER STORY people in Third World countries. The remaining 10 per cent is destined for landfill. More than 200 volunteers work at the Bloomhill stores and distribution centre and Bloomhill op shop coordinator Nicole Croft says about half of those would be sorting clothing full time. “Sorting of clothes is extremely time consuming, but it is done to ensure quality control,” Croft says. “The distribution centre controls the majority of donations, although all stores have a sorting area if donations are made direct. On average, the DC allocates 32 hours every week sorting through clothes – this is based on several shifts with a minimum of two volunteers per shift. Each op shop probably spends at least two to three hours sorting as well.” The investment in time is definitely worth it for Bloomhill, with the op shops generating more than 80 per cent of the organisation’s funds, which provide care for people living with cancer on the Sunshine Coast. “We always ask for clean good quality items. A good rule of thumb is if it is something you wouldn’t give to a friend, don’t pass it on to an op shop,” Croft says. Bloomhill public relations officer Lisa Blair says the op shops are full of treasures

waiting to be discovered by savvy shoppers. “I love the fact that if one million women bought their next item of clothing secondhand instead of new, we would save six million kilograms of carbon pollution from entering the atmosphere. That’s a pretty compelling case for buying from op shops,” she says. A Sunshine Coast Council spokesperson says a 2016/17 waste categorisation audit found 3.1 per cent of textiles and rags made up the commercial waste stream and 3.2 per cent of the domestic waste stream. “Clothing waste does not present any unique landfill management problems,” the spokesperson says. “Council supports and promotes waste minimisation. Reuse through donations and/ or sharing is a great way to delay landfill disposal, but really to avoid waste disposal, buy only what you need.” Based on the current population, the council’s landfill facilities are sufficient to accommodate the region’s needs to 2050. Reucassel says with the majority of the textile industries operating overseas, consumers are so far removed from the production process that they see a $10 blouse as a bargain and never consider the waterintensive process of cotton farming, the
chemicals used to dye the fabric, and then the fossil fuels used to transport the blouse from its country of manufacture over to Australia. The War on Waste looks at the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, which has developed the Higg Index, a self-assessment tool for clothing brands, retailers and facilities of all sizes, to measure their environmental, social, and labour impacts and identify areas for sustainability improvement. Reucassel says it will be easier for consumers to make informed decisions about the clothing they buy if something like the Higg Index can be universally applied, much like the labelling that is required on foods in supermarkets. “It would be a real step forward to be able to visually see the impact this item of clothing has made and will also hold clothing manufacturers more accountable for their processes. This is something I am going to look into for the follow-up show, which we are working on right now and will be released later this year,” he says. While changes on a national and even international level will take some time, Reucassel says the ultimate power to make change lies with consumers. “In the end, the absolute power that you have is to buy less. Whether you spend
more money to buy high-quality items that last longer, or choose to use one jacket for an entire winter season instead of buying five,” he says. “You need to slow down your fashion despite every one of these major companies doing their best to speed it up.”
In fact, rescuing items destined for landfill is both a passion and a business for Johnston, who is the founder and CEO of EcoBling. The Eumundi resident turns wood offcuts, broken glass, tiles and stainless steel into stunning pieces of jewellery (pictured left on a model), which are capturing international attention and have been showcased in sustainable runway shows around North America. EcoBling was created three years ago and quickly became a name in the eco-fashion realm, with sustainability running through every vein of the business. “The very first piece I made was made from a piece from a fallen down shed in my backyard when I was living in New Farm in
Brisbane,” Johnston says. “From then, I started noticing heaps of construction waste and all of these hardwood offcuts. The more I got into the mindframe of upcycling, the more resources I saw, instead of waste.” Johnston was invited to showcase her designs at Eco Fashion Week in Seattle in November last year and says while it was an exciting step for the business, it was also one that brought a lot of internal conflict. “Being part of the fashion industry and having the mindset that I do creates a lot of conflict for me. I can see so much damage happening, so much land being needed for growing textiles, materials and raw materials needed for textiles being wasted, as well as deforestation exponentially happening to
make way for textile production,” she says. “I am anti-fast fashion and am very pro-recycling. For my first runway, I dressed my models in recycled bedsheets.” Johnston says a lot of eco fashion designers are becoming disheartened that no matter how loud they shout or how positive their message is, it’s not “getting through the noise”. “We have this global mentality and a somewhat animalistic nature that gets us excited when we see something that is cheap, new, and shiny. It is a very complex problem and one that I hope more people are waking up to. It requires a very strong person to think that because it’s cheap at $5, it’s usually at the expense of something else, and that is people and the planet.”
FAST facts • Australians spend $5 billion on fast fashion every year • Half a million tonnes of textiles and leather end up in landfill each year • 6000 kilograms of recycled clothes are thrown out every 10 minutes. In one year, that’s enough clothes to fill the MCG twice • One cotton T-shirt takes 2700 litres of water to produce, that’s enough drinking water for one person for three years • Clothing made from polyester, which is essentially a plastic, takes up to 200 years to breakdown in landfill • A natural fibre like cotton or wool can biodegrade and compost, but landfill doesn’t provide the right conditions for this to happen.

REVIEW THE AUSSIES ARE COMING BACK TO THE COAST IN 2021
TRIAL FOR RAPID FLU DETECTION DEVICES With the flu season in full swing, the University of the Sunshine Coast’s Clinical Trials Centre is working with doctors at Coastal Family Health, Buddina to conduct a trial of a new rapid detection device for Influenza A and B. The product, known as the ellume:lab Flu A+B Test, includes a tool for taking a nasal sample, an eStick to detect flu antigens in the sample, and a phonesized analysis unit. USC Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka says the device is designed to promote early diagnosis of the treatable infectious illness in a point-of-care setting, such as a clinic. Litewka says adults who met the criteria would be asked to do a self-test using the new device, and provide one throat swab. Visit usc.edu.au/trials or call 07 5456 3797 for more information.

The championships were held on the Coast last year – the first time in 36 years – and the nine-day event saw 20,000 competitors and spectators arrive on the Coast. The 2021 event is expected to be held at Alexandra Headland, Maroochydore and Mooloolaba with options to include Caloundra and Coolum also being considered.

As the first of his kind in Australia, Doug the rock reamer is going to chew his way through extremely hard rock underneath Nicklin Way to help construct a new 2.5-kilometre sewerage pipeline to service the southern end of the Sunshine Coast. The project is one of two new major sewerage pipelines Pipeline Drillers is constructing on behalf of Unitywater. The other pipeline will be 3.2 kilometres from Mountain Creek under Kawana Way to the Kawana Sewage Treatment Plant. The two pipelines are expected to be completed in January 2018.

2017 winners: Anne Gibson, Dr Tegan Keogh, Jodie Hedley-Ward, Elaine Jobson, Angela Mansey, Mervat Quirke
The standard of entries into this year’s Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network Awards was so high, judges had to go through two rounds of selections to determine who the 29 finalists would be from the field of 60 submissions. But the judging panel made it through and on the weekend, the best of the best were recognised for their innovation and dedication to their professions at the 2017 awards presentation at The Events Centre, Caloundra. In the glamour-filled event on August 12, Jetts Fitness CEO Elaine Jobson was awarded the coveted Outstanding Business Women of the Year title. Jobson, who worked with Sir Richard Branson to improve the function of a business he acquired in South Africa and who started at Jetts Fitness five years ago, believes she is only as strong as the team she has around her. “I would guess that 80 per cent of my time is spent with others in my team, helping them grow and develop into becoming more than they think they can be,” she says. “It really is the best job in the world, to be responsible for people’s growth and seeing them achieve remarkable things.” The Micro Gardner’s Annie Gibson took out the sustainable category, Bloomhill Cancer Care CEO Mervat Quirke won the professional category, and Dr Tegan Keogh of Hear Check secured the micro small business category. McGrath Estate Agents Caloundra co-founder Jodie Hedley-Ward won the corporate category and Kuluin Mufflers’ Angela Mansey took out the young business woman title. Awards judging chair Min Swan says the calibre of entrants this year meant they could have had multiple winners in each category. “I truly believe the standard of entrants is so high because of the integrity of the judging process and the fact that we attract some of the highest level of business people as judges of these awards, all of whom give up days and days of their valuable time to be involved,” she says. myweeklypreview.com.au

XAVIER RUDD: “I DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH SELF-LOVE” When multi-instrumentalist Xavier Rudd returns to the Coast to play at Caloundra Music Festival, it will be as a changed man. He spoke to My Weekly Preview about finding love, overcoming pain and a possible move to the Sunshine Coast. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
IMAGE: RAF WETERE
hen Xavier Rudd headlined the 2015 Caloundra Music Festival, no one among the crowd of revellers would have guessed he was in a bad way. He performed a spellbinding show with his newly formed band, the United Nations, the crowd blissfully unaware he was suffering severe back pain from three herniated discs and was dosed up on opiates to get through the show. A month later, he was in hospital having disc replacement and spinal fusion surgery and had to cancel his overseas shows. “The nerve pain was unbelievable, it was 24/7,” he says. “It was such a crazy thing to go through, it was wild. I was touring with the United Nations and was on heaps of painkillers just to get through the shows.” Today, Rudd is in the best shape of his life and is excited to be playing his first headline show in Australia in two years at Caloundra Music Festival on September 29. After playing to crowds of 50,000 in Europe in June and July, he’s on a career high and enjoying newfound health and happiness, thanks in part to the support of his second wife, Ashley Freeman, a fitness instructor from Byron Bay who he married late last year. “She’s amazing, she’s a trainer and a motivator,” he says. “She makes people feel great about themselves. I’d had back surgery and was on a spiral downwards when I met her. Before we met I got to a point where I almost couldn’t walk. I had emergency surgery and she helped me recover.” Freeman was by Rudd’s side as he fronted up to the Byron Bay Local Court on August 11 to fight an assault charge over a ‘dog rage’ incident, an allegation he strongly denies. Freeman calls Rudd her “best friend”, while he says he’s never been happier. “It was all a part of my awakening. I didn’t have enough self-love. I was out there giving myself to the world and abusing my own temple at the same time, just not taking care of myself, letting my physical self deteriorate.
“As my back fell apart, stuff came up that I was carrying since a little kid. I realised I needed to love myself. I got off the grog and I’ve been a lot clearer in mind and spirit. I stay super-fit and make sure I’m the clearest vessel I can be. I’m performing a lot better.” Rudd’s healing journey has taken him as far as the jungles of Peru, where he worked with a shaman who prescribed eight plants, including the hallucinogenic ayahuasca. “There hasn’t been a day in the last 15 years where I’ve let my ego get the better of me in my music, but in other parts of my life, I have struggled. In relationships, things to do with my kids, where I should be, what I should be doing and what I shouldn’t be doing. “When I say ego – a lot of people mistake
ego for self-inflation. The human ego is all emotional stuff. The biggest thing I’ve learnt is to separate myself from my ego. When I went to the jungle in Peru, I was carrying some depression, anxiety and emptiness. I learnt how to stand outside my own ego and my emotional body and see the difference between that and what was reality and I was able to let that stuff go.” The strongest influence in Rudd’s life since childhood is what he believes is the spirit of his Aboriginal great-grandmother. “There’s a spirit that comes through me,” he says. “Even as a kid I understood I had this old woman around me. She has some kind of presence with me with music and I’ve always understood I need to respect that 100 per
cent. I don’t mess with my music for the sake of what people want to hear. When I play live, it’s a ceremony for me. “I was never trying to become a famous musician, I was just mucking around with tones, tapping didgeridoos to chairs, stuffin’ around with interesting sounds, wooden instruments. I wasn’t trying to create pop songs or even create a career. I’ve always remained true to that. “I don’t think I’ve ever sat down and gone, I’m going to write a song. They just come, they just flow through me, I don’t write them down, I don’t record them all, if songs don’t stay I don’t force them.” Rudd plans to record a new album in October and while his last album, Nanna, was reggae, the new album will be a return to his folk roots. With close to a million albums sold worldwide, he is a phenomenon on the Australian music landscape – a multiinstrumentalist who creates deeply stirring music with no consideration given to its commercial viability, which nevertheless resonates with millions of fans. His profile is even bigger in Europe and North America, where he tours extensively each year. Still, he loves playing at home and will return to Caloundra Music Festival fitter, stronger and happier. “I love the Sunny Coast and I have a bit of family up that way – I think I’m going to move there eventually, maybe in the next few years. I’m 39 now and I’m creeping further north the older I get,” he jokes. “I’m stoked with how things are going overseas but it makes it extra special to play at home. It’s where it all started for me and I really appreciate home – Australia always got behind me.The Sunny Coast is a special place and I’m definitely looking forward to it.” Caloundra Music Festival is on at Kings Beach from September 29 to October 2.

GRAND DESIGNS HOST TO VISIT Peter Maddison is a voice for sustainability, writes Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
eading Australian architect Peter Maddison has done many laps of the country and seen some of the best – and the worst – in designs for sustainable living. Many of them have been highlighted through his TV series, Grand Designs Australia, and now Maddison will come to the Sunshine Coast to give a presentation at the second annual Cleantech Effect conference at the Lake Kawana Community Centre on August 23. This year’s event will focus on the challenges of ‘designing our future’ and creating sustainable communities and includes presentations on the latest technologies, as well as success stories from companies that have embraced Cleantech to boost business performance. Maddison says sustainable living is a broad field and he will focus on the territory he is familiar with during his presentation. “I am not an environmental scientist, but I am certainly an architect that has recently done a lap of Australia doing some observational work,” he says. “I will break down this big, nutty problem of how you design sustainable and comfortable cities into four categories.”
Maddison will look at developments in all size categories and explain why they would be suitable for the Sunshine Coast climate. “What we realise now as our cities are getting denser, is the impost of infrastructure begins to impact on our comfort level. It’s like when you get cities growing out of their clothes and getting too big for their jumper, so to speak. This is why putting good design principles in at the start is so important.” Taking advantage of environmental conditions, the direction of the sun, cooling sea breezes and including good public amenity are all features of exemplary designs Maddison has seen, but he says variety is also important to avoid ending up with a “vanilla, one-jacket-fits-all type of community”.

ALL OPTIONS ON THE TABLE An independent chair has been appointed to lead the newly-established Maroochy River Estuary Consultation Group (MRECG) to look at and review submissions on the proposed options for the renewal of the groyne field at the mouth of the Maroochy River. The Sunshine Coast Council endorsed the Shoreline Erosion Management Plan (SEMP) 2014, which called for investigation into coastal infrastructure upgrades as structures like the geobag groynes and seawalls constructed by the council in 2003 have “reached the end of their useful life.” The MRECG will be independently chaired by Emeritus Professor John Martin, from La Trobe University. Martin’s first task is as part of a threemember panel, including a council staff member and a representative from the mayor and CEO’s office, to assess the expressions of interest for a number of positions on the consultation group. The group will review feedback from local surf clubs, environmental groups and Indigenous community representatives along with State Government agencies, the Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce and the University of the Sunshine Coast. Some of the options being investigated by the council include works to move the mouth back to the north of Pincushion or alternatively, armouring the southern
shoreline with rock groynes and walls. However, former Maroochy Shire councillor and Sunshine Coast Environment Council life member Jim Cash says, “History clearly shows the Maroochy River has had a restrictive entrance for at least the last 175 years and yet people still call for its dredging on the false basis that it is silting up,” he says. Cash says the river mouth has oscillated about Pincushion Island a number of times in the past 160 years and has “never encroached” into the Cotton Tree precinct. He also points out the precinct, including the camping ground, was developed at the turn of the last century and coexisted with a southern entrance up until 1959 without it being impacted, let alone “washed away”.
Community information sessions will be held from 6pm to 8pm at the Maroochy Surf Club on August 22, the Maleny RSL on August 24, and the Nambour RSL on August 29.

Jenna Dewan’s beauty bag
With her dark hair, flawless skin and striking green eyes, US actor, model and dancer (and wife of Channing Tatum) Jenna Dewan is a natural stunner. However she’s very open about the products she can’t live without and shares her tips on social media. Some of her handbag essentials are:
3 DRY SKIN SAVIOURS
Is your skin feeling dry, taut, scaly or irritated in the dry winter air? Treat yourself to a super-hydrating new moisturiser: BODY: OGX Sensually Soft + Tsubaki Blossom Body Lotion is infused with an ancient Japanese healing oil called tsubaki oil, plus bamboo extract to help soothe dry winter skin, $14.39 from Priceline. FACE: Tatcha Indigo Soothing Triple Recovery Cream, $198 from Mecca Maxima contains a blend of indigo extract, colloidal oatmeal and sophora japonica, $198 from Mecca Maxima. HANDS: Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body cream contains avocado oil wild blackcurrents and hibiscus flowers, $33.99 from Priceline.
3 2 1. Shu Uemura eyelash curler: She swears by this tto make k h her llook k awake and refreshed, $40 from David Jones. 2. Josie Maran’s Argan Oil, $70 from Mecca Maxima. 3. Red lips – Jenna says her go-to makeup product for feeling instantly sexy is red lipstick. Try a highly pigmented lipstick that gives full coverage, like Chantecaille’s Lipstick in Poppy, $55 from Mecca Maxima.
Give Sanbot a name to WIN YOUR VERY OWN ROBOT!
If you love intense eyeshadow, try the Mecca Max Double Vision Eye Colour. One half is a powder shadow, the other half is an intensifying cream. For intense colour, apply the cream underneath and layer the powder over the top, $16 from Mecca Maxima. Available in 20 gorgeous shades (pictured shade is Wicked Mermaid).
WORTH A TRY: FALSE LASH MASCARA Love the look of false lashes but don’t love the hassle? Try the new Lash X-Fiber Mascara from L’Oreal Paris. Step one: use the primer, which is designed to volumise the lashes from the root to the tip. Step two: use the other side of the wand to add lengthening fibres and ultra-black pigments for a false lash look. Online reviews are mostly positive but some say it’s prone to clumping and flaking, $28.95 from pharmacies.
No Salesmen! No Hype! One contact from concept to completion, too easy!!
Sunshine Coast Council is calling on the community to suggest a name for our first non-human recruit. Sanbot, an intelligent, humanoid service robot is the first of her kind in Australia. You can visit Sanbot at the Smart Centre, 63 Bulcock Street, Caloundra. She will be responsible for greeting guests and helping them take self-tours if staff are busy with other visitors.
Entrants will go in the running to win a Sphero SPRK+ robot. Competition closes 5pm Tuesday 22 August. Submit your idea at surveymonkey.com/r/smartcityrobot

OUR 50TH YEAR
FRIENDLY TOWN WAS HEART OF THE COAST For most of the 20th century, Nambour was the capital of the Sunshine Coast, home to commercial, health, banking and government services for communities from Caloundra to Noosa, the coast to Kenilworth, writes Dot Whittington.
The Commonwealth Bank in Currie Street, 1950s; central parking outside the Commercial Hotel
or decades, all roads led to Nambour. It was the home of the Maroochy Shire Council chambers, a town hall, police and courts, the region’s major hospital and a major employer, the Moreton Central Sugar Mill. It had grocery stores, pharmacies and major banks and was a thriving country town where people came from far and wide, often once a week, to shop and do their business. It was the beating heart of the Sunshine Coast. In his book, Surveying My Life, former Maroochy Shire Chairman Fred Murray details the town when he arrived in 1946, a time when Nambour had a population of about 3000 and was just one main street, Currie Street. For those with fond memories of Nambour, take a walk along Currie Street, starting in the south on the eastern side. From the Catholic Church and convent, head past the Salvation Army tabernacle and Dai Rees the baker. Cross Maud Street past the Methodist Church, which was destroyed by fire in 1987, to the Post Office, a weatherboard building and home of the PMG. Continue past the Nambour Cooperative Society grocery store, built in the
late 1940s, and Glasgow’s jewellery shop to Edmiston’s chemist and the Commonwealth Bank (later the library). Next is the sports store opened by the Kittle family and later Ray Turnbull, to the Bank of NSW, a landmark federation building. Cross Howard Street to Bayards and head past Jim McDermott’s Electrical Shop, later taken over by Ian Jones. It became the go-to music store for LPs in the 1970s. Then came Dinny Freeleagus’ cafe and Chadwick’s dress shop. On the first floor, a photographic studio was later occupied by Bill Robinson. Also in this block were Collins Cafe, Overells Newsagency, Heaton and Perren Hardware, D.C. Wilson Chemist and Penneys which became Coles. Whalley’s Emporium, destroyed by fire at the end of the 1940s, was the largest shop in town and was virtually a junior Myers, selling everything from a toothpick to a truck. Crossing Lowe Street, is the Commercial Bank, Hill’s boarding house, George Bury’s White Rose Café, Hill’s barber shop, the Commercial Hotel, Kerr and Taylor’s panel beating, the Nambour Chronicle building, Henry Voigt’s wheelwright and blacksmith
Live a colourful life at Aura
shop, and Taudevin’s funeral parlour. After crossing the road to Ron Lanham’s service station at the corner of Price Street, pass Glover’s produce store, a fish and chip shop and bootmaker, Bill Potter. The Royal Hotel was on the corner of Station Square. John Doran ran one of Nambour’s busiest grocery stores below the Maroochy Shire Council Chambers and beside the new Charles Pharmacy. Pass the Municipal Library, McDonald’s toy and hobby shop, solicitors E.B. Fox & Sons, and the real estate office of Vic Day and Jim Grimes to the Club Hotel, reconstructed after a fire in 1938. Crossing Mill Street, the dilapidated Royal George Hotel did a roaring bar trade, particularly during the cane crushing season. The Vogue Theatre came later but in 1946, the Returned Soldiers’ Garage, was the biggest motor business in town. Marshall’s Garage was the local dealer when the Holden first came on the market. Wimmers’ Cordial Factory occupied the site in Bury Street where the shire chambers now stands. Continuing past Bury Street, was the Baptist Church, then the home of Dr Short, who was the Government Medical Officer, and the funeral parlour of E.C. Thomas & Son. A big timber building became Lynch’s corner store at the Mitchell Street intersection. A wooden police station was on the site now occupied by the Nambour Court House and beside it was Selangor Private Hospital. More than two decades later, Currie Street was still much the same. Many who knew Nambour in its heyday, will remember most of the businesses still existed well into the 1970s, but by the turn of the millennium, the sugar town had handed supremacy to Maroochydore.
THIS MONTH IN HISTORY Dedicated in August 1914, a “quaint little country-style church on the periphery of Montville Village Green, one of only a handful of village greens in Australia”. St Mary’s played a big role in the life of Montville – christenings, confirmations, marriages and funerals. It was built at a cost “not to exceed £400 including everything”. The Anglicans first began meeting in Montville in 1908.
The new Selangor hospital opened in Netherton Street in 1959
DID YOU KNOW? Two Australian nursing sisters, Sister Christine Oxley and Sister Dorothea Ralston, who had seen service in the Middle East and South-East Asia, opened a hospital in Currie Street, Nambour. They named it Selangor after the Malaysian state where they had been based. 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. If you have any historical photos or stories email email@example.com.

CRAZY FOOD AND FASHION FADS
YAROOMBA BEACH: WHY WE NEED IT
Sami Muirhead is as delighted by her discovery of lasagne on a stick as she is disturbed by a new Japanese fad: bikini crotch charms.
Evan Aldridge believes the benefits of the proposed Yaroomba Beach project will be felt by many generations to come if approved.
asagne on a stick? It is genius. So bad it is good. The first LOS (lasagne on stick) was served at the Ekka in Brisbane last week and I would not be surprised if the invention results in record crowds flocking to the show just to try the culinary delight. Are you reeling, the same as I was when I heard about this glorious news? It is brilliant. Layers of pasta goodness is soaked in white sauce and Italian style mince before being deep fried and cut into big slabs. Each rectangle of deep fried lasagne is then stabbed with a skewer. Voila! You can continue with whatever you are doing in your day as you devour one of the greatest foods of all time. It got me thinking what else we should make on a stick. I mean the Dagwood Dog and fairy floss on a stick are already stalwarts in the hall of fame. But imagine huge hunks of deep fried Camembert on a stick? Could we somehow make tiramisu on a stick? I turned to my good buddy Todd, who I work with on the radio, because he is somewhat of an expert on beer, bacon and deep fried goods. A foodie for the people, of sorts. “We all know lasagne is basically spaghetti cake and lasagne on a stick is just the beginning. It is a pioneering gateway snack to all sorts of amazing new culinary delights, as why would you stop at lasagne on a stick when you could have spaghetti and meatballs on a stick,
tortellini on a stick, battered macaroni and cheese on a stick?” Todd said. “And for the posh palette, you could create satay ostrich on a stick or deep fried chocolate scorpions on a stick or even sticky date pudding on a stick”, he added. Indeed. Move over kale. Spring is coming and it is bringing stick food with it. The trend reflects an appetite for anything skewered and stabbed with wood and steel seen at pop-up restaurants and cafes in trendy parts of Sydney. One trend that has come out of Japan this week is the release of bikini crotch charms for women to dangle from their swimsuits between their legs. Um. I had to read the story three times. These uncomfortable looking charms on really long chains dangle out of your bikini bottom with swinging crystals that hang between your legs. They are being touted as the next fashion fad and not some kinky item sold at adult shops. I don’t know about adding wet sand and chains between your legs. It is just a recipe for disaster. Tog bottoms will be skimpier than ever this season. G-strings are taking over the world, as all the young women think nothing of flashing their derrieres while they take a dip. Shrinking togs and metal chain loops swinging about without fear puts the fear of God into me. Dear me! It’s all enough to send me running for more lasagna on a stick.
he Yaroomba Beach proposal is a unique opportunity to create a world-class coastal village on the last masterplanned site on the beachfront of the Sunshine Coast. If approved, Yaroomba Beach will transform 19 hectares of disused golf course into a vibrant community hub to be enjoyed by all – tourists and locals alike. It will turn an overgrown, abandoned golf course into a beautifully designed village, promoting coastal vegetation, sustainable buildings, and well-maintained green spaces, including a lakeside public park for arts and cultural events. Even though the Planning Scheme identifies our site as a tourism focus area – specifically set aside in the Planning Scheme as the primary locations for tourism related activities, facilities and infrastructure – the existing 10-year-old approval over the site for a gated housing and apartment estate doesn’t fulfil these strategic aims of providing tourism and economic benefits. We wanted to do better. This is why the project has attracted a bit of attention along the way. I knew we needed to get the balance right in recognising the strategic importance of the site to the Sunshine Coast and also taking on the feedback from the community. We undertook an extensive community engagement process to redefine the new masterplan for Yaroomba Beach, to ensure it met the expectations of the majority of the

community, and two out of every three people said yes. People recognise the benefits in tourism and jobs generation, community facilities and sustainable leadership Yaroomba Beach will provide. Yaroomba Beach will deliver the first five-star resort for the Sunshine Coast in 30 years. It’s estimated to generate 90,000 new visitor nights per year to the Sunshine Coast and contribute $120 million annually to the regional economy. Yaroomba Beach will also create 360 jobs on site as part of 1,400 in total across the Sunshine Coast.
“I have a vested interest in retaining the appeal of the Sunshine Coast…” There is always plenty of commentary on planning issues, and the Planning Scheme has a big job to do to facilitate the council’s objectives in order to preserve the Sunshine Coast’s lifestyle, while securing its future prosperity. I have lived on the Sunshine Coast for eight years with my wife Amy, raising our two boys. So I have a vested interest in retaining the appeal of the Sunshine Coast while making sure there are opportunities for the next generation.

FROM THE MAYOR
We are very fortunate to have a vibrant and community-minded seniors population here on our Sunshine Coast. And they are continuing to make an invaluable contribution every day to the economy, our community initiatives and to maintaining our outstanding natural environment. It is only fitting that their contributions and ongoing efforts are recognised and celebrated and that is what we will do in Seniors Week 2017 from Saturday until August 27. Seniors Week provides a very powerful opportunity for us to appropriately acknowledge our seniors and what they add, in many ways, to our region. Whether it involves offering business advice based on a lifetime of experience, volunteering in a community organisation, helping out in the extended family by caring for grandchildren, our Sunshine Coast is a richer place thanks to the efforts of our seniors. To help make the Coast even better for our growing number of seniors, please fill out the Sunshine Coast Positive Ageing survey, available at our libraries, customer service centres and on our website. It closes on August 31.

APPROVALS INCREASE Sunshine Coast building approvals are at their highest level in eight years, with Sunshine Coast Council issuing $1.72 billion in approvals for the 2016/17 financial year. Our Development Indicators Annual Highlights Report, now available on council’s website, presents a selection of statistics on development activity throughout the past 12 months. The building approvals issued in the last financial year were 32% higher compared to the building approvals issued in the previous year. While the majority of the $1.72 billion in building approvals continued to be of a residential nature, last financial year there was increased growth in the proportion that were for multiple dwelling units with a total of $341 million approved, an increase of 68% from 2015/16. Another positive sign for the local economy has been an increase in the value of building approvals relating to uses such as offices, shops and restaurants.

WHAT DID KEN AND BARBIE DO WHEN YOU WEREN’T LOOKING?
TODD’S GROG Todd Widdicombe uncovers a string of lies as he cracks open a coldie.
Dolls come to life in this cheeky cabaret with a serious undercurrent. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
Marr, a Gannon, a Hibbert, a Rourke and a Joyce. NOT ONE SMITH. Fast forward to today and the band The Killers. Haven’t wacked anyone, ever. Plus, it’s not limited to bands from the 80s either friends. This treachery even extends to the songs themselves. According to my research, sadly, you can’t really build a city on rock ‘n’ roll. Sorry Starship. Fast forward to today and Adele sings she wants to Set Fire to the Rain. According to two separate well known meteorologists I’ve questioned, you can’t actually set fire to the rain. Good one Adele. Back to the awesome 80s and everyone’s ultimate karaoke song Summer of 69. Thing is, Bryan Adams was only nine in the summer of 69. None of that stuff, hanging out at the drive-ins, playing his first real six string and meeting that chick who was standing on her mama’s porch, actually happened. Ah 80s music, what a load of hullaballoo. Luckily for us, there’s an ace new beer on the market to wash all this musical deceit down with and it’s a corker. The Barrow Boys Brewing Co hails from Melbourne and their beers are ace. The Stormy Lager is a cracking drop, fresh, crisp and sharp with a thirst quenching bitterness and a malt driven, slightly biscuity aroma and taste, balanced perfectly by Tassie hops. The Barrow Boys of Melbourne have re-invented the taste of lager with this little chestnut proving that the world’s oldest style brew doesn’t have to be boring. Crack a Stormy this coming weekend and I guarantee you’ll be all over it like Kim Jong Un on a Strawberry Choc Cornetto. Strawb Stoked to push the barrow to a Sto solid four out of five thumbs up. f

licia Cush grew up as an only child and spent many hours alone with her “army” of Barbie dolls. It was memories of this innocent time that came to Cush in the middle of the night 18 months ago and inspired the storyline for Dolls by Babushka, the latest production for Little Black Dress Creatives. The cheeky and totally pinkified cabaret show follows three characters played by Cush, Bethan Ellsmore and Penny Challen. “My favourite Barbie when I was growing up was the Day to Night Barbie, which was a CEO dolly. So I wear a pink pleather power suit and I can have it all. I’ve got the wonderful husband, the enviable career, twin babies… and sometimes I need a Valiumlaced martini. I’m the neurotic have-it-all Barbie,” Cush tells My Weekly Preview. Cush says while the “adult play date” looks at the hilarious, absurd, and quirky nature of dolls, (yes, even blow-up dolls) there is a more serious undercurrent that looks at how dolls shape the expectations of women. “At the same time, we wanted it to feel like
you are walking into the pink aisle in Kmart, totally overwhelming and a bit sickening, but sparkly and fantastic,” she says. Dolls by Babushka is on at the Lake Kawana Community Centre on September 2 at 7.30pm. Tickets are $29 and available at scvenuesandevents.com.au. Thanks to the Lake Kawana Community Centre, My Weekly Preview has a double pass to give away. To find out more, see page 7. The show is for people aged 15 and over.
A Night with Opera Queensland
ewsflash people: I recently uncovered a terrible 80s musical lie that has rocked me to the core. It would seem that not only was the lead singer of Mike and the Mechanics a dude called Paul – in fact over time it was two dudes called Paul – but after much research I discovered the heartbreaking fact that not one member of this 80s band, Mike and The Mechanics, is a qualified mechanic. There’s not even an apprentice among them. Yes I know, Mike Rutherford of Genesis founded the band, but usually if you’re name’s in the title you’re the lead singer, right? Adam and the Ants, the Dave Matthews band, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, etc. Following this method, the band that sang All I Need Is a Miracle and The Living Years was in fact, Paul and the Mechanics. Now as if that’s not enough, I dug a little deeper into this skulduggery and uncovered plenty more 80s musical lies. Remember the glorious Thompson Twins,, most recognisable in Australia for their 1983 hit Hold Me Now? Yep, you guessed it, not only were none of the members twins, they weren’t even related. Then there’s Judas Priest, not one Catholicc among them, Def Leppard, none of them were even remotely hard of hearing and of course The Smiths. There’s a Morrissey, a

MY meats, leafy green vegetables and Vegemite. Lead researcher Professor Sally Dunwoodie says the ramifications of the double breakthrough – hailed as the biggest since folic acid was identified as a preventative of neural tube birth defects and spina bifida in babies – are likely to be “huge”. “This has the potential to significantly reduce the number of miscarriages and birth defects around the world,” she said on Thursday.
health VITAMIN B3 MAY PREVENT MISCARRIAGE, DEFECTS A groundbreaking Australian study could lead to a dramatic drop in miscarriages and birth defects globally. By Sarah Wiedersehn, AAP.
n a finding bringing hope to thousands of Australian couples, preventing birth defects and miscarriage could be as simple as supplementing a pregnant woman’s diet with vitamin B3. A landmark Australian study undertaken at the Victor Chang Cardiac Research
Institute has identified a new cause of miscarriages and multiple types of congenital birth defects. More importantly, though, it has identified a way to prevent them. It comes in the form of niacin, otherwise known as vitamin B3 and typically found in
“Some 15,000 women in Australia every year have a child with a birth defect or they suffer from multiple miscarriages” “Some 15,000 women in Australia every year have a child with a birth defect or they suffer from multiple miscarriages. This discovery brings hope to many of those women.” Using whole exome sequencing technology, researchers looked for gene variants in families that had experienced multiple congenital malformations.
Identified was a gene mutation that caused a deficiency in a molecule critical to all living cells, known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). They found low levels of NAD crippled the growth of the embryo and led to miscarriage and birth defects in mice engineered with the same gene mutations as the study participants. However the deficiency was cured through the supplementation of vitamin B3, which is required to make NAD. After the dietary change, both the miscarriages and birth defects were completely prevented, with all offspring born healthy. “The science is not simple and it took 12 years but the beauty is the simplicity of the prevention, it’s cheap and its available,” said Professor Dunwoodie. The findings are published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine and the research team is confident they will translate to humans. Professor David Winlaw, a paediatric surgeon at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, says families affected by congenital heart disease should be encouraged by this “blockbuster” breakthrough. “This is the biggest finding in congenital heart disease for at least 20 years,” Professor Winlaw said.
Medical Journal recommends Chiropractic as first means of treating back pain. Your Medical Doctor and your Chiropractor both want the same thing when you are injured: to help you heal as quickly as possible and to get back on with your life. The Journal of the American Medical Association now recommends Chiropractic as a first means of treating back pain. This recommendation have been
made following a recent study in the Medical journal “Spine”. The study involved people suffering with low back pain who received standard medical care. Half of the people were also received Chiropractic care. 73% of those receiving Chiropractic care reported that their pain was gone compared to just 17% of those who didn’t receive the Chiropractic care.

DENTAL TECHNOLOGY FORGES AHEAD
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT DEAFNESS Deafness or hearing impairment is often described as the invisible disability. This is partly because hearing aids tend not to be obvious and partly because those affected are often isolated through lack of access to communications. Here is what you need to know. What are the signs of hearing loss? Loss of hearing is often a gradual process. Some of the early warning signs of hearing loss are: you can hear but not understand; you find it hard to hear in noisy situations or groups of people; you think people mumble; you need to turn the TV up louder than others or, you don’t always hear the doorbell or the phone. Will a hearing aid restore my hearing back to normal? Hearing devices benefit many people. However, no hearing device can restore your hearing to normal. The benefits depend on your individual circumstances such as the degree of your hearing loss and the devices chosen, but significant improvements in communication are achieved. Which hearing aid is right for me? Modern hearing aids come in a wide range of styles and performance levels. Your audiologist will help you make the right choice by taking into consideration your hearing needs, budget, lifestyle and cosmetic preferences. Does it take long to get used to a hearing aid? This will vary from person to person because every person is different. It takes some time to adjust to listening, and to hearing everything again. Do I have to pay for a hearing aid? If you are an eligible pensioner or veteran, you may be able to obtain a free hearing aid.

There is one question leading Sunshine Coast orthodontist D Patrick Hannan is often asked about his dental work – aside from the expected “will it hurt?” He is often questioned about how technology has impacted orthodontic treatment. “While there is no substitute for both specialised training and clinical skills, it is no surprise to find technology plays a part as well,’’ the Ocean Orthodontics doctor says. “Wires that were first developed in the space program provide super flexible properties. Through advancements in technology we have developed more sophisticated braces – or brackets – that are smaller than their predecessors.” They are manufactured with some of the more common, and repeated movements built into the bracket before a wire even gets near it. There have also been advancements with non-metal or clear brackets. “The latest generation of these still aren’t as strong as metal, but certainly look nicer, and can be a nice option if the case type allows it. There are also now a range of brackets with doors that close rather than having to tie in the wire with rubber rings and there are even robots now that can bend wires. “Technology also allows us to move teeth digitally on a computer. There are even custom-made brackets on the horizon. For all of this to work, specialised planning by the orthodontist is critical.”

ROBOTIC SURGERY AVAILABLE HERE ON THE SUNSHINE COAST. September marks Prostate Cancer Awareness month and according to the Cancer Council, Prostate Cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian men. 1 in 7 men are diagnosed by the age of 75, meaning that around 17,000 men are diagnosed with Prostate Cancer each year in Australia. The measurement of Prostate Speciﬁc Antigen (PSA) in the blood is the primary method of Prostate Cancer detection. The National Health and Medical Research Council recommends men discuss PSA testing with their GP and if they are average risk of Prostate Cancer they undergo a PSA test every 2 years from 50 years of age. Men with a family history of Prostate Cancer should be tested every 2 years from 40 years of age. The Cancer Council advises men experiencing the following symptoms to see their GP. • • • • • • •
Feeling an urgent need to urinate Difficulty starting to urinate A slow or intermittent stream of urine Leaking or dribbling after urination Blood in the urine Pain when urinating Pain in the lower back or pelvis.
If you have any of these symptoms it does not necessarily mean you have prostate cancer. It may well be that you have benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). This is common in men over 50. The advice for men with
any of these symptoms is to make an appointment to see your GP. For men diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, the Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital has many specialist Urologists and expert staff ready to care for you. The hospital has a range of treatment options should you require surgery, that your surgeon will discuss with you. This may include robotic surgery using the Sunshine Coast’s only Da Vinci Xi Robot. The hospital’s robot was installed earlier this year and gives the surgeon a 3D view of the prostate, which is magniﬁed up to ten times. Operations are performed using keyhole surgery through a small incision in your lower abdomen. The robotic arms, which hold various instruments are inserted through these incisions. The 3D vision and smaller instruments used, allow the surgeon to more precisely operate in conﬁned areas of the pelvis while also eliminating the need for larger incisions. The surgical instruments are manipulated as an extension of the surgeon’s hands to complete the operation.

MY HEALTH 3. They’re bulky and can only be worn with unattractive shoes – Top orthotics today are slim and unobtrusive, and are designed to be effective while still fitting into a large range of shoe types. 4. Wearing them in will be painful – The best orthotics on the market should not be uncomfortable. It may take a few days to get used to wearing them as they will likely change the way you walk, but you shouldn’t experience discomfort.
DEBUNKING COMMON MYTHS ABOUT ORTHOTICS
t is indisputable that custom orthotics are one of the most effective treatments in a podiatrist’s toolkit. The right orthotics can reduce pain by redistributing excessive pressure, improve stability, relieve pressure and help people move with greater ease. Orthotics are becoming increasingly sophisticated with improvements to technology. Today the best custom orthotics no longer rely on recording the foot contour alone, but incorporate information about the way a person moves and the problems they’re experiencing. Despite the way custom-made orthotics have been proven to effectively turn on muscles that aren’t working well and help people move without pain, numerous
misconceptions about these devices remain. Here, Dan Everson from Dan Everson Podiatry puts some of the most common foot furphies to rest. 1. Orthotics are only relevant for older people – Despite the stereotype, orthotics can be helpful to people of all age groups experiencing foot or lower limb discomfort – even young children. 2. Over the counter orthotics will do the trick – Custom orthotics simply can’t be compared to an off-the-shelf product. The most effective custom orthotics are made specifically to suit a person’s feet, the way they walk and address their specific concerns. They often last longer, are less bulky and are made of better quality materials.
When shopping for shoes, keep in mind that sizes vary across brands. Your foot size can also change as you age. It is best to have your feet professionally measured and try on the larger and smaller size when buying shoes.

IN THE news Sunshine Coast women are benefitting from unique technology in a first of its kind for Australia. The Laszlo Tabar Breast Centre at the Specialist Women’s Imaging Centre at Currimundi has introduced the GE Senographe Pristina to enable better diagnosis of the presence or absence of breast cancer. The system utilises SenoBright ContrastEnhanced Spectral Mammography and there is now the potential to reach definitive decisions sooner and cut the critical patient wait time from detection to diagnosis. Performed as an adjunct to an inconclusive mammogram or ultrasound exam, SenoBright highlights areas of unusual blood flow patterns, which may be a cause for increased suspicion of the presence of cancer. Additional technology includes breast tomosynthesis – a 3D imaging technology that uses a low-dose short X-ray sweep around the compressed breast with only nine exposures. This imaging technique is designed to separate the tissues and to reduce the overlapping of structures, which represents a limiting factor in standard 2D mammography. The end results are classed as ‘true 3D’ images giving specialists a clearer understanding of what is going on. The SenoBright exam is a simple, quick procedure that’s much like a regular mammography exam.

of hormonal imbalances, not to mention oestrogen dominant cancers and conditions such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, endometriosis, fibroids and more. Realising this is more of a liver problem, and less of a hormonal problem is very important, and including foods from the cruciferous family such as broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and cabbage are important for supporting the clearance of these excess hormones. Hormonal health can be upset by a variety of reasons. Getting comprehensive testing is important to understand how they interplay together. Your energy, mood, and longevity all rely on your hormonal health, so make it a priority no matter what your age or your gender.
oth men and women suffer hormonal imbalances causing insomnia, night sweats, difficulty concentrating, poor energy, poor memory, depression, anxiety, and sometimes hormonal health issues, such as prostate enlargement or uterine and ovarian conditions. As we go through life taking on more responsibility, the hormonal system must work harder, yet our hormone production is reduced from that in our twenties. Certain nutrients that are deficient in Australian soils act as hormone communicators between the different glands, such as iodine, where its role is to keep the hormones balanced. Another important nutrient known as Indole-3-carbinol plays a role in clearing out old oestrogens through the liver when they are no longer necessary. If this process becomes blocked, the oestrogen excess can contribute to all kinds

Migraines are not just another headache. They are truly debilitating and significantly impact on your quality of life. They negatively impact family time as well as the ability to perform normal work. A migraine sufferer can regularly feel like they are letting others down because they simply cannot function, usually at short notice and often at the worst possible time. Medication might not control the migraine well or their side effects can take a toll on the mind and body. As a result, the demand for and the awareness of non drug treatment approaches to migraine is growing. Also growing is the recognition of the role the neck can play in a migraine.

KEEPING SUN SMART We live in one of the sunniest and most beautiful parts of Australia – and we have the highest skin cancer rates in the world.
he term skin cancer is used for non-melanoma skin cancers (BCCs and SCCs) and melanoma. Unfortunately, both forms are common for people living on the Sunshine Coast. Melanoma is the deadliest of all skin cancers and is the third most common cancer in Australian men and women. Almost 14,000 Australians are expected to be diagnosed with melanoma in 2017. In young Australians, melanoma is the most common cancer and kills more young Australians than any other cancer. While 90 per cent of people with melanoma are able to be cured by having the primary melanoma removed by surgery, in the other 10 per cent of cases, life-threatening
spread will have occurred already. Dr Christina Sander from Central Dermatology Clinic Sunshine Coast shares what we need to know about this deadly disease.
appear anywhere on the body but most commonly develops on parts of the body that receive high sun exposure such as the head, face or shoulders. Symptoms of BCC may include: • a pearly lump • a scaly, dry area that is shiny and pale or bright pink in colour. SCC: Accounts for about 30 per cent of non-melanoma skin cancers. It generally grows quickly over weeks or months and can spread to lymph nodes. Squamous cell carcinoma symptoms may include: • thickened red, scaly spot • rapidly growing lump • looks like a sore that has not healed • may be tender to touch.
THE RISK FACTORS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW Over the past five years, the use of surgery plus additional treatments including immunotherapy have significantly extended the live expectancy in people with advanced disease. Non-melanoma skin cancers are the most common cancers in Australia and most are not life-threatening. Treatment usually involves surgery, cryotherapy, cream treatments or radiation. BCC: This type accounts for about 70 per cent of non-melanoma skin cancers and can
• Personal history of skin cancer • Family history of skin cancer (first degree relatives) • Fair skin, blue eyes, red hair • Dysplastic Naevi (atypical moles) and lots of moles • Childhood history of sun burns • Use of solariums or sunbaking history
WHAT TO DO Limit sun exposure, seek shade and cover up. Avoid long outdoor activities in summer, you will not be able to protect you skin adequately.
Many people become anxious, scared and frightened when they think about going to the dentist. But there is one aspect of dentistry that a growing number of people are excited with – cosmetic dentistry, according to the team from Buderim Dental Surgery. Teeth whitening – a simple and less costly cosmetic solution. It is the process of whitening the teeth’s natural structure. It only whitens natural tooth structure and does not whiten fillings, porcelain or dentures and if done correctly, it is safe and does not damage teeth. Veneers – These are thin layers of material that cover only the front part of the teeth. They are fixed covers that are glued over the prepared teeth structure and are done mainly for front teeth. Some of its uses are to create a whiter smile, help teeth look straight, change the shape of teeth, cover stained teeth and chips or help close gaps between the teeth.

LET’S CELEBRATE SENIORS WEEK
ith everything from dance workshops to yoga, there is something for everyone on the Sunshine Coast this Seniors Week. To be held from August 19 to 27, Seniors Week is coordinated by the Council on the Ageing Queensland (COTA) and is an opportunity for older people to explore programs, services and events. It is also a great opportunity for older people to connect with each other. Sunshine Coast Council has got behind the event and partnered with the community to highlight the importance of celebrating our seniors. Mayor Mark Jamieson says there is no doubt seniors continue to make an invaluable contribution every day to the economy and community initiatives. “It is only fitting that this is recognised and celebrated,” he says. “Seniors Week provides a very powerful opportunity for council and the community to appropriately acknowledge our seniors and what they add to the vibrancy of the Sunshine Coast. “Whether it involves offering business advice based on a lifetime of experience, volunteering in a community organisation, helping out in the extended family by caring for grandchildren, our region is a richer place for the efforts of our seniors.” Turn the page for a list of events across our region.

TIGHT-KNIT COMMUNITY KEEPS AUSTRALIAN TROOPS WARM Homeowners at Bli Bli’s over 50s community Halcyon Landing have banded together to knit 50 beanies for Australian soldiers on foreign deployment in the lead-up to the northern winter. After hearing about the initiative organised by the Returned and Services League of Australia (RSL), eight home owners in the close-knit community banded together and have so far produced almost a quarter of the 50 beanies they plan to send to the Middle East. The RSL’s national volunteer project has so far sent about 200 beanies to troops overseas. Halcyon Landing community manager Donna Osborne said she was thrilled with the willingness of so many home owners to lend a helping hand. “Sending a beanie to Australian troops provides more than warmth for those serving in the Middle East winter; it represents our support, appreciation and recognition from home,” she says. “This initiative demonstrates the supportive, tight-knit community we have at Halcyon Landing.” The eight home owners at Halcyon Landing band together once a week knitting
HAMPTONS STYLE LIVING
Kay Ryan and Janet Quaill the beanies. “As a group, I think it’s fantastic for the Halcyon community to come together to support a great cause. It’s also a great opportunity for home owners to catch up and have fun while doing so,” Mrs Osborne says. As well as units in Afghanistan and Iraq, Australia has personnel in Egypt, Sudan, Israel and Lebanon. In 2015, hundreds of people in Western Australia enlisted to help knit more than 2000 scarves and beanies for Australian troops.

THE IDEAL LIFESTYLE
t’s possible Daniel Gowing lives the perfect work-life balance. Working under the endless blue skies of the Sunshine Coast winter, he’s the groundsman at the Nature’s Edge Buderim. To get to work, he just opens his garage, hops into his golf buggy and … he’s there! Nature’s Edge Buderim is set against a rich rainforest backdrop, full of bangalow palms and other native species. Daniel is planning to start propagating bangalow palms on-site and has already begun planting other native species down embankments and on pathways. Daniel and his wife Jen travelled around Australia for three and a half years in their Fifth Wheeler caravan, before coming back to the Sunshine Coast for a little break. “I took the job of groundsman in December last year and noticed how relaxed everyone was,” Daniel says. “Jen and I decided pretty quickly that we wanted to join in.” By February this year, they had moved into a beautiful new home with modern kitchen, high ceilings and a rainforest outlook. Just like plenty of residents at Nature’s Edge Buderim, Daniel and Jen love to lock up and leave to travel near and far. They
now get out and about on a different set of wheels: a shiny blue Oz Trike, which seats two comfortably and has a nifty trailer. Talk to the lifestyle advisers at Nature’s Edge Buderim, where you can live in a secure gated community, in a brand new architect designed home, without the exit fees. Homes are 8-star energy efficient and master-built with steel frames. Ask about the small selection of premium elevated homes overlooking the rainforest.

HEALTH ADVICE: THE HIDDEN RISKS IN SNORING Obstructive sleep apnea is a common affliction that affects thousands of people every night, causing excessive snoring and sometimes even choking. If you’ve ever slept next to someone who snores you will know just how irritating it can be. However a common side effect of sleep apnea is excessive snoring and this can be much more serious. When we are asleep, our airways relax and start to narrow, causing snoring. In people with apnea, the airway can completely close over causing it to become blocked which in turn starves the body of oxygen. Once the brain realises that the body isn’t breathing, it sends a shot of adrenalin to alert the body to wake up. We then take a deep breath (or loud snort) and go back to sleep. The cycle then repeats and can occur several hundred times a night – exhausting! Some common signs are: • Excessive snoring • A choking sensation or waking with a loud snort • You appear to stop breathing • Frequent night visits to the bathroom • Continual lack of energy • Poor concentration and short-term memory
The quality of your sleep is more important than the quantity. The reason that most people with apnea are always tired is that their body is still fatigued the next morning as a result of poor quality sleep. It’s also important to consider that the health of your partner may also be affected by continually interrupted sleep. Health risks directly linked with apnea include type two diabetes, heart attack, stroke and high blood pressure. An effective treatment is with a CPAP or APAP machine which delivers pressurised air through a tube and mask to your face. The airways are held open by the higher air pressure providing a much better quality, uninterrupted and restorative sleep.
To find out more about this technology, visit MD CPAP Direct in Buderim. Phone 5476 8328.

SUBLIME LUXURY Japanese maker Lexus has made a big statement with its latest luxury SUV, the gargantuan LX570. Words: Peter Atkinson, AAP.
ho could have imagined, even just a few years ago, that today we’d have almost a dozen luxury SUVs on the market with prices stretching north of $150,000? And sitting right in the middle of this rather extraordinary battle is Japanese luxury marque Lexus with its imposing LX570. The very big, very plush Lexus all-wheeldrive model has increasingly seemed like a slightly odd fit in the Lexus family – a massive, bulky machine juxtaposed to the brand’s ever-more sleek, sporty offerings.
For years the same car was also criticised for being too closely recognisable as what it essentially was – a glorified version of the top-line Toyota LandCruiser Sahara. But this latest version of the LX570, while still clearly cut from the same cloth as its Toyota cousin, provides a big exclamation point to the growing Lexus SUV range. Its refinement, equipment and attention to detail are all straight out of the Lexus playbook. Silky, silent and sumptuous. The big Lexus (actually, big doesn’t really do it justice) is offered in two variants – the
base model at a tick over $154,000 (driveaway) – and an even more highlyspecified version tested here, with a driveaway pricetag of $171,965. That substantial pricetag gets you an extraordinary suite of electronic gadgets, to the point where the Lexus’ cockpit is akin to the flight deck of the Starship Enterprise. I counted more than 65 switches dotted around the driver’s seat – from the centre console with a selection of off-road and soft-road settings, air suspension adjustments and performance choices. With all seats in use, the Lexus will gobble up eight passengers and still have space for some of their gear. There’s no escaping the fact that the LX570 is a gargantuan piece of kit. To get its almost three-tonne bulk rumbling serenely around, Lexus has employed a brawny 5.7-litre quad-cam V8 with 270 kilowatts and 530Nm of torque – driven through a buttery eight-speed automatic. The reassuring rumble of that big, throaty V8 engine is all but concealed from the Lexus’s occupants, as is any semblance of road or wind noise at virtually any speed. Bumps are soaked up without issue, although we were surprised at the way some road imperfections were felt through the steering in the form of axle-hop. Lexus makes great play of this vehicle’s off-road capability – and in fairness you’re far
more likely to see one of these on the beach at Fraser Island than, say, a Bentley Bentayga. But mostly, it will primarily be driven by well-heeled mums requiring more than the conventional five seats to cart around the kids, and it does that particularly well. No amount of clever suspension packages and electronic stability aides (and the Lexus has plenty of them) can completely mask the LX570’s bulk. However, most of the time, it feels as if it’s floating along on a comfy pillow – which effectively it is, thanks to a sophisticated suspension system that allows height to be reduced at higher speeds.
LEXUS LX570 (WITH ENHANCEMENT PACK) HOW BIG? It’s enormous – particularly when you’re trying to park it (despite the reversing camera and parking assist technology). It was too big for our garage so had to spend the week on our driveway. HOW FAST? Not particularly, despite it’s powerful engine. But once up and rolling its quite responsive and is the ultimate long-haul cruiser.
HOW THIRSTY? Combined consumption is 14.4L/100km which is fair. Around town you’ll struggle to remain in the teens. HOW MUCH? $171,965, including on-road costs.

INDUSTRY WRAP It’s happy days for our property industry as southerners flock to the Sunshine Coast for better prices and an unbeatable lifestyle. the Sunshine Coast, has ticked the EnviroDevelopment boxes for ecosystems, waste, energy, materials, water and community. Solis comprises 33 one, two and three-bedroom luxury apartments over eight levels, crowned by three sub-penthouses and two exclusive penthouse apartments. The development has drawn buyers from the Sunshine Coast, interstate and overseas with owner-occupiers leading the way.
54 NEW LOTS RELEASED AT PALMVIEW The Sunshine State has recorded a major increase in the number of interstate migrations, with more than 14,652 people making the move to Queensland from other states or territories in 2016. The Sunshine Coast, in particular, is experiencing a population boom with the region set to grow to almost 453,000 by 2036 (from around 294,000 in 2016). Palmview’s largest masterplanned community, Harmony by AVID Property Group, has just released its latest stage of land – Prosperity 3A – in a bid to cater to the ever-growing population of the Sunshine Coast. AVID Property Group general manager Queensland Bruce Harper says Harmony has seen an influx of buyers moving from other states and the extra 54 lots will help to satiate interest. “Harmony is experiencing the beginnings of the return wave of interstate buyers,” Harper says.
“When Sydney and Melbourne house prices reach a certain price point difference, it triggers a movement of people from New South Wales and Victoria to sell up to take advantage of the cheaper Queensland prices – not to mention the relaxed lifestyle and warmer climate. “For seven years that wave had receded but now house price differentials are at an all-time high and there are signs that the northern march of interstate migrants is starting to move again. “South East Queensland is on the cusp of an interstate migration upswing that will boost the economy. “The feedback we consistently get from buyers is that they are moving to the Coast as it is undoubtedly one of Australia’s best lifestyle locations,” he says. Harmony will deliver more than 4800 homes for 12,000 future residents and will feature 100 hectares of open space, including Queensland’s first grand linear park.
“It is an active market with a shortage of boutique luxury apartments…” MOSAIC’S SOLIS APARTMENTS ARE GETTING SNAPPED UP Demand for property has also been at an all-time high in Caloundra, with Mosaic Property Group’s Solis development at Kings Beach having close to half of its luxury apartments snapped up in a little more than two months. The $23 million boutique project is the first multi-unit residential development on the Sunshine Coast to secure a six-leaf EnviroDevelopment certification, bolstering the ‘green’ appeal to buyers. Solis, the second of five projects the Brisbane-based developer has planned for
Mosaic Property Group’s Managing Director Brook Monahan says the development is capitalising on the pent-up demand for luxury beachside apartments in Caloundra, particularly from owneroccupiers. “The pace and volume of sales in both Caloundra projects supports Mosaic’s decision to expand its development footprint to the Sunshine Coast,” Monahan says. “It is an active market with a shortage of boutique luxury apartments that appeal to both owner-occupiers and investors.”
SPOTLIGHT SHINES ON THE SUNSHINE COAST’S BEST BUILDERS
Kernohan Construction’s 2017 Sunshine Coast Individual Home $1.26 million – $2 million award winner
48 My Weekly Preview | August 18, 2017
There were many multiple award-winners at this year’s Master Builders Sunshine Coast Housing and Construction Awards, and Kernohan Construction, Lend Lease and PJ Burns were at the top of the list. Kernohan Construction received the 2017 Sunshine Coast House of the Year and also won the 2017 Sunshine Coast Best Residential Swimming Pool and 2017 Sunshine Coast Individual Home $1.26 million–$2 million. The stunning beach home is built on a steep sand dune overlooking the Pacific Ocean and is designed to offer 180-degree ocean views from the main living area, as well as views from all of the other living areas and bedrooms. The use of several cladding materials gives the house exceptional street appeal and the suspended pool, this year’s Sunshine Coast pool of the year, really sets this home apart.
The 2017 Sunshine Coast Project of the Year went to Lend Lease for the Sunshine Coast University Hospital. Lend Lease also won the 2017 Sunshine Coast Health Facilities over $20 million. PJ Burns was also a multi-award winner, taking out the 2017 Sunshine Coast President’s Award, as well as the 2017 Sunshine Coast Individual Home $251,000– $350,000, and the 2017 Sunshine Coast Individual Home $551,000–$650,000.

with MWP’s man in the water
Yew! Julian Wilson has won Tahiti 2017, which has landed him in the top five. Man, I thought he was gone, but he scored an epic barrel to steal the win from Brazil’s Gabriel Medina. He was seriously committed to surfing on dry reef when most competitors elected to kickout. Congrats to the Coolum charger. Locally, this weather is nuts. I cannot remember an August so warm. We should have cold SW winds but the temps are crazy. The whales are now being spotted heading south so let the show begin. There should be a few waves around and some super fun this weekend.

TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
Monday and Tuesday favour home and hearth, as the solar eclipse highlights your domestic zone. On Thursday and Friday, Venus makes a tricky aspect to Uranus. So bulls can expect a busy and somewhat bamboozling couple of days.
Don’t be a timid twin this week! Monday night’s eclipse encourages you to find fresh ways to connect with others – whether at home or in your local community. Short trips and education are also highlighted, plus expect plenty of communication.
ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20) Your life is set to expand in exciting ways, as the fiery solar eclipse energises your entertainment sector. So clear your throat, polish your maracas, and find yourself a captive audience as you perform and party like a pro!
CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
Show me the money! You’ve been talking about saving for something big for a long time now. This week, with Mars and the solar eclipse (and then Venus) firing up your finance zone, resist the urge to be flash with cash and careless with credit.
The solar eclipse lights up your sign Leo. So it’s the perfect time to initiate a pet project, refresh your physical appearance, review your personal beliefs or embark on a rollicking adventure. Flashes of inspiration are likely to strike suddenly.
It’s time to temporarily retreat into your Virgo cave, as Monday’s solar eclipse cruises through your contemplation zone. Enjoy solo activities like meditation, yoga or long walks in nature. You’ll also be surrounded by innuendo and intrigue.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
Leading Team Libra will be a breeze this week, as you impress others with your hard work. Socialising within a group situation also brings many benefits. You’ll find your leadership and communication skills are appreciated on the weekend.
Scorpios are smart and strategic, but are you confident enough for big time success? The coming week is your time to shine, as the eclipse activates your career zone. On the weekend, Saturn and Jupiter stimulate desires to help a friend or family member.
We all know Saturn is still moving through your sign, and you’re sick and tired of challenges, obstacles and delays. Stop sulking Sagittarius! This week Jupiter (your power planet) connects with Saturn and sends a potentially lucky break your way.
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
The solar eclipse stimulates your intrigue zone so no secret is safe, as you uncover clues and pick up on cues that others miss. Be careful what you unearth though - you may stir up issues from your own less-than-perfect past.
It’s all about close relationships this week when Mars, the solar eclipse and Venus illuminate your partnership zone. Love, lust, loyalty, cooperation and compromise are the buzz words, as you snuggle up close with someone special.
This is the ideal time to ditch bad habits and start fresh. It’s a juggle to get everything done, but keep calm! You’re focused, but are you focusing on the right things? Work, health and fitness are the main areas where you need to make some changes.
Solve all the clues and reveal the eight-letter word spelled down the middle of the grid.

THE LAST WORD
IT’S A SAD DAY WHEN KIDS CAN’T CLIMB TREES On an outback adventure, Richard O’Leary has a close encounter with a stick-in-the-mud.
ou’ll have to get those ropes down from the tree… and the boys.” My sons, who are six and eight, had been blissfully playing, keeping themselves occupied in a place with no swings, no toys, no internet. We’d arrived at the caravan park in the middle of nowhere the day before, halfway between Darwin and Alice Springs, to have a rest from driving and a sample of a more simple life. So I was quietly enjoying my two boys hanging out in the tree and creating their own fun. The eldest had commandeered a bucket and a rope from our camping gear to improvise a primitive pulley system to draw up water, rocks or gold – whatever his imagination could conjure. Together they hauled buckets, moved from branch to branch, totally absorbed in what they were doing, until the most dangerous of human specimens approached – someone
with the inability to handle a little bit of power. He took one look and told the boys to get down. I paused, determined not to overreact. “It’s sad isn’t it?” I said. “Here we are in the middle of Australia to try and give our kids an outback experience and they can’t climb a tree.”
“I was quietly enjoying my two boys hanging out in the tree…” “If you don’t like it,” he motioned towards the road. “I’m not trying to have a disagreement; I just think it’s a sad situation.” “Public liability mate, you can go across the road [the Stuart Highway] and climb trees over there.” I didn’t mention the irony of being advised
to cross a national highway to go and play in the bush with a bunch of brown snakes when my boys had just been told to get out of a tree because it was too dangerous. I asked the boys to get down so we could have a family meeting on whether we should stay or go. We decided leaving would be more trouble than it was worth and took the caretaker’s advice and crossed the road for an adventure a world away from the confines of the caravan park. We climbed an old windmill, the highest point for a hundred kilometres and enjoyed the 360-degree view of the rugged landscape. We scaled barbed wire fences to walk with Brahmins and stomped our feet to scare off the snakes. We’d broken through the limitations of people with no sense of adventure. And then I was charged by a water buffalo. But I’ll save that story for another day. email@example.com
