FROM THE EDITOR

G

ardening is not my forte. Actually, what’s the opposite of forte? Because that’s me when it comes to landscaping and all things plant-oriented. Recently, a dear friend and colleague gifted me with a beautiful potted plant. I tried, I really did. I watered it, moved it into and out of the sun and kept a watchful eye over the prized possession. Then I got busy… one day turned into two and before I knew it, the beautiful, thriving plant had crumpled into a neglected heap. Today is the first day of spring – a season that conjures up images of blue skies, sunshine and colourful gardens. Thankfully, for those without a green thumb, there is some good news: gardening guru Jamie Durie has agreed to dish the dirt on what it takes to make a healthy garden grow. You can read our spring gardening story on page 10. From gardens to glaciers, in this week’s edition we take readers on a journey to Alaska in our My travel feature. The lovely Catriona Rowntree also shares her advice on turning a travel stopover into a fun-fuelled mini holiday. We also have a few last-minute gift ideas for the dads out there. Turn to My body and My style for some great ideas. And, don’t forget to enter our Father’s Day-inspired competition this week.

QUICK CHAT

EARNING HIS CRUST Where on the Sunshine Coast do you live? Buderim. First job? Working in my parent’s bakery when I was 12. What are you currently working on? We’ve just opened our 10th store, at Buddina, and we need to finish off the details for our grand opening. Your family includes… Belinda and I have been together since we were 16 years old and have four children. We work together in all facets of the Beefy’s business. First car? A second-hand Holden Calais. Favourite book? I read The Magic of Thinking Big by David J Schwartz many years ago and it had a profound impact on me. What are you reading now? I’m re-reading The 8th Day of the Week by George Bakrnchev. Favourite song? Anything acoustic (which annoys my children greatly!)

What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? I can’t decide between Mooloolaba and Montville.

pie guy

BIO Mark Hobbs from Beefy’s is celebrating the opening of his 10th store. The launch of the Buddina outlet, which boasts a brand-new look for Beefy’s, comes 20 years after Mark and his wife Belinda opened their first pie outlet at Aussie World. Though the couple and their four children have enjoyed plenty of business success on the Coast, they have had their personal challenges.

Your greatest regret? I prefer not to focus on regrets; instead I choose to believe I made the right decision at the time.

“As much as frustrations are a part of the business game, I always look for solutions”

Best advice you’ve been given? If you are going to do something, do it well.

Mark Hobbs

three-year-old into the ER. We weren’t sure if we would ever bring him home. He spent eight days in hospital including time in the Brisbane ICU and was diagnosed with an incurable chronic disease. Life changed that day. Looking at our son now, you wouldn’t know the pain and suffering he endures. He requires constant medical care, which is why we have dedicated the last three years into Beefy’s raising funds for the Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital through our ‘Pie of Origin’ challenge. So far we have raised more than $48,000.

If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? Having a cooler winter would nice as it’s great pie weather. Best day in your life? I fulfilled a personal goal by spending Christmas Day with the family in Canada, skiing in the morning, then eating pizza and watching the NBA on TV all afternoon. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? Yes. July 23, 2014. The day we carried our very ill

What achievement are you most proud of? It’s a bit ironic owning a pie shop, but one of our sons has coeliac disease and cannot eat gluten. Three years ago we developed our first glutenfree pie, which he loves. You are happiest when? When I’m laughing with the family.

What frustrates you the most? People who don’t do what they say they will do.

How do you deal with your frustrations? As much as frustrations are a part of the business game, I accept that and always look for solutions and better ways to do certain activities. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? We currently have this age group in the house, so we tell them to enjoy life and have fun, but to also understand the benefits of task management. Tea or coffee? Green tea, though I love the smell of coffee. NRL or AFL? Both. I am a Hawks supporter for AFL and the Broncos for NRL. Throw in basketball as well, which I still enjoy to play and follow.

COVER STORY

GOOD TO GROW Celebrate the change of season by pulling on the gardening gloves, grabbing some potting mix and getting oustide. And if you need inspiration, My Weekly Preview has it – in spades! WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“The backyard is valued more than ever in Australia. It’s become just as important to renovate your outdoor room as it is to do your kitchen and bathroom” Jamie Durie, pictured here with his winning garden at the Chelsea Flower Show

T

hough we’ve experienced one of our warmest winters here on the Sunshine Coast, today marks the official start of spring. With the potential to harness the power of the season to transform your great outdoors, no matter how large or small your space may be, we have spoken with some local, national and international gardening gurus to find out what is hot for spring 2017.

JAMIE DURIE Although Jamie Durie is in the US and about to welcome autumn, the garden designer, interior designer and TV presenter says there is nothing like springtime in Australia. “It’s when the wattle starts to bloom and you can smell the perfume of the wattle flowers and see the bright yellow colour through the Aussie bush,” he says. Durie says the subtropical climate on the Coast is perfect for harnessing the power of outdoor living. “I spent a great deal of my youth growing up on the Sunshine Coast. In fact, my mum and some of my closest buddies still live there, so I’m often visiting,” he tells My Weekly Preview. “The backyard is still valued more than ever in the Australian culture. It’s become just as important to renovate your outdoor room as it is to do your kitchen and bathroom. “They are not only the most important lifestyle-enhancing rooms in the house, they

are also key areas that will add to the financial value of your home.” The six-time Logie winner and former host of Backyard Blitz says Australian gardens are natural and contemporary, and quite different to the more traditional style he sees in American gardens. But whether tropical, exotic or Aussie natives are your preference when it comes to plants, Durie says it is important to design your garden around the aspects of living you “will enjoy luxuriating in outside”. He says vertical green walls are the must-have garden feature this season, while DIYers keen to try something new to spruce up their outdoor spaces should look at breeze blocks and permeable paving in interesting colours, with ground covers planted in between the paving gaps. “Designing with a limited plant palette and creating impact through repetition of the same limited type of plants seems to be a rising trend,” he says. “It’s a more minimal and restrained look, but does pack quite a visual punch through the art of repetition. Resort-style is my favourite style of garden, with a tropical plant palette.” Now spending about five months of the year in the US, Durie has moved his focus away from garden design, which has netted him 34 national and international awards, including a gold medal at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show in 2008.

He is now collaborating with manufacturing companies around the world and designing “transterior” furniture, which he says caters to the inside or outside of a home and promotes bringing the outside in. Durie was a regular on The Oprah Winfrey Show from 2006 and presents several shows on American TV channel HGTV, including hosting four seasons of The Outdoor Room, while also running Durie Design and working on American and Aussie homes. “My most recent projects include 8 Phillip Street in Parramatta, New South Wales, which is a multi-level, hotel/ residential tower project where we’ve applied our transterior philosophy and Australian style of living to the tower’s entrance, rooftop bar on the 54th floor, pool terrace, street scape and floating gardens,” he says. “Another project is The Burcham in Rosebery, Sydney, which is a wonderful example of modern sustainable multiresidential living. This is another project which is all about bringing the indoors outside, and the outdoors in. We wanted a much more symbiotic outcome, where buildings were more sympathetic to the landscape outside, and vice versa.”

COVER STORY

Christopher Lloyd, who was the 20th-century chronicler for the heavily planted, labourintensive, country garden. McCoy, who was on the Coast for the 33rd annual Queensland Garden Expo in July, admits he has never been one to follow the trends in gardening, but has spent a lifetime attempting to break down the anatomy of a brilliant garden. “It’s about sculpting spaces, and the way you are surrounded by, and respond to, the space is more important than how it looks,” he says. “That might raise more questions than it answers, but coming from an international perspective and seeing gardens around the world, there are certain things that make our hearts skip a beat. And that is more connected to feeling than the visual.” McCoy says with garden fanatics having access to a cascade of two-dimensional images on social media, people get used to seeing things that look stunning in photos. “Standing in a living sculpture is the most powerful thing that resonates with me. I could feel totally safe, horribly exposed, intimately surrounded, and intimidated. These are much more powerful emotional languages than just whether I can see some pretty flowers or nice colours,” he says. “I needed to understand this so I could try to replicate these deliciously beautiful gardens somewhere else. You will never have

a great garden until you realise it’s about how the space feels.” While green thumbs are happy to do the hard yakka to create their horticultural masterpieces, McCoy says they are outnumbered 100-to-one by those who simply want to enjoy their outdoor space without having any interest in gardening. “Every home owner has this need, this hunger, this desire for a beautiful outdoor space, and they might not be interested in what to weed or prune out. They simply want this space to lure them to come out,” he says. “Historically, this is quite new. As little as 20 years ago, my profession was all about problem solving, what to grow here, how to

PLANT SWAP STEPS Nursery and local online gardening group All Things Garden are set to host the second Sunshine Coast Plant Swap. The popular event is a great family day out with workshops, market stalls, a native beehive demonstration, kid’s activities, sausage sizzle and prizes. All proceeds from the day support the work of the not-for-profit garden centre to help people learn new skills and achieve greater independence. The nursery hopes to raise enough money to fill its expanded space with more plants to allow greater opportunities to give back to the community.

treat this disease. Now, backyards are no longer utilitarian spaces with a Hills hoist and fruit trees, they are Balinese retreats, provincial farmhouse gardens, they are a means to capture a kind of mood.” McCoy says there is a strong movement coming out of Europe that is expected to catch on in Australia this spring – celebrating seasonal plants. “I’ve never been a finger-onthe-pulse kind of guy. But one of the biggest things at the moment is plant-driven gardens where gardens change as the seasons do and plants are celebrated,” he says. “I guess we have dominated nature so much for so long, that we are looking for some reassurance that nature is in charge and this is sparking and longing for gardens that reveal nature in terms of seasonality.”

The Sunshine Coast Plant Swap is on at the STEPS Nursery at 9 George Street, Caloundra on September 2 from 9am to 2pm. For more information, visit facebook.com/theSTEPSNursery.

Leonie Shanahan is the Sunshine Coast’s vegie garden guru, having set up edible gardens in more than two dozen schools as well as sharing her expertise at countless events and penning the book Eat Your Garden. Shanahan says spring is the ultimate time to prepare your garden beds for a bumper harvest. “You need to mulch, mulch, mulch to conserve water and protect and feed soils and sprinkle rock minerals on all gardens to give them a boost,” she says. “If you are growing citrus trees, cut out all gall wasp now and burn or place in rubbish bin.

IRONMAN LEGEND DEAN MERCER DIES IN CAR CRASH

The sporting community is in mourning following the passing of former ironman Dean Mercer on Monday. The 47-year-old suffered a heart attack while driving, following his regular early morning training session with the Kurrawa Surf Club Masters. Mercer’s car crashed into a fence at Mermaid Waters and he was unable to be revived by paramedics. Mercer is the brother of Noosa Heads life saving coach Darren and uncle of ironwoman Jordan Mercer. A statement released by wife Reen and their four sons Brayden, 13, Rory, 11, Lachlan, 9 and Joshua, 6, says Dean was “an amazing husband and loving father who loved nothing

more than sharing his and Reen’s love of life and love of the surf”. “Dean Mercer will be remembered as the little bloke with the heart of Phar Lap. No surf was too big and no opponent too tall as he tackled the biggest and best in the business. He will go down in history as one of Australia’s greatest ironmen who represented both New South Wales and Queensland and wore the green and gold of Australia.” Mercer began a professional ironman career at the age of 15, competing from 1987 to 2010. He won a string of ironman titles, including two national championships in 1989 and 1995, five New South Wales championships, and the World Oceanman series in 1997. He was awarded an Order of Australia for services to life saving. Dean competed for both Mooloolaba and Maroochydore when he relocated to the Sunshine Coast.

SIX CASSIE: COUNCIL’S FIRST ROBOT Meet Cassie, the Sunshine Coast Council’s first non-human employee. Sanbot received the name of Cassie thanks to Obi Wynn, who won a competition from more than 350 entries. Cassie, whose name was inspired by Casuarina trees, has been recruited to help the council understand the capabilities and functionality of humanoid robots. She will be responsible for greeting guests and helping them take self-tours of the Sunshine Coast Smart Centre. Visit Cassie at 63 Bulcock Street, Caloundra, Monday to Friday from noon to 4pm.

The six members of the Maroochy River Estuary Consultation Group have been announced: Susie Chapman, Peter Dews, Cerran Fawn, Derek Foster, Kerry Jones, and Peter Taylor. The group will work with community associations, surf club representatives, environment and water quality experts, State Government agencies, the Maroochydore Chamber of Commerce, the University of the Sunshine Coast and Surf Life Saving Queensland to provide feedback to the council regarding the renewal of the Maroochy River groyne field. Feedback from the MRECG will be compiled, along with feedback from the survey and five community consultation sessions, in a report to council in December.

GRAMMAR STUDENTS MAKE DEBATING HISTORY Sunshine Coast Grammar School’s Year 8 debating team has made Queensland Debating Union history being crowned runners-up in the 2017 Grand Final. No school on the Sunshine Coast has made the finals in more than 20 years. More than 200 teams entered the Year 8 competition.

A way with words: Eloise Lawrie, Jordan Horne, Sophia Rodrigues, Destiny Guteridge with coach and principal Maria Woods. The Grammar students took on a strong team from Churchie in the grand final in Brisbane.

PROFILE

CALOUNDRA BARISTA ON A COFFEE CRUSADE If you think you can’t live without your morning coffee, spare a thought for the coffee growers living in impoverished conditions with no way out. It’s an issue that concerns Caloundra barista Tim Adams enough to want to do something about it. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

T

im Adams believes a balanced diet consists of a coffee in each hand, though if he had 10 hands, they’d all be holding a coffee. The award-winning Caloundra barista lives, breathes and consumes coffee like a madman – 10 to 12 double shots a day. It’s not enough to have been named Queensland’s top barista three times or to be the only Queensland barista to have been named the Australian Barista Champion. Adams is so passionate about his trade, he now wants to use his success to change the lives of the world’s poorest coffee growers. In 2015, Adams founded the Chapola Project with three other roasters to help coffee growers in developing nations improve their harvests and attract higher prices for their coffee beans. He first visited Honduras in 2015 and fell in love with the country and the people, but realised he could do more for coffee growers in turmoil. His most recent trip was in July and August, and after a brief stint back on the Coast, he’s now in Brazil meeting growers. Adams and his team visit their coffee growers up to four times a year, which he says is hard on his wife and two kids, Grace, five and Jack, 18 months, particularly as he often ventures into dangerous places. In Honduras, he visits Santa Barbara in the El Salito mountain range near the city of San Pedro Sula, known as the world’s murder capital until 2016. “We have to be quite vigilant about where we go,” he says. “I’m not going to walk down the main street of San Pedro Sula at twelve o’clock at night. You’re watching over your shoulder all the time. But one of the things I did learn on this recent trip was they’ve had a new government come into Honduras and they’ve tried hard to clean up the safety. The locals get offended when you talk about their reputation worldwide, with drugs and cartels and criminals. They get passionate about defending their country.

Tim Adams on a recent trip to Honduras for his Chapola Project “The people are humble, genuine, down to earth and very welcoming. They’ll have you staying at their house and they class you as family. It’s amazing hospitality. “A lot of producers in Honduras are quite poor and really struggle with general handling of money and education around their finances,” Adams says. “A coffee producer will only get one decent harvest per year and that money is all they have to live off for the year. If they miss the opportunity for a really good pick, they lose a lot of income.” Adams says 70 per cent of growers in Honduras sell into the local market at low prices because they’re not recognised by international buyers as yet, and they don’t have the resources to nurture their plantations properly to produce bigger harvests.

“A lot of the high end coffee gets sold into the local market for about US$1 to US$1.50 per pound compared with the international price of US$4.50 to US$6 per pound,” he says. “They get loans from banks or local brokers and pay high interest rates, so they don’t end up with a lot of money. “A farmer could have a hundred trees but may only be producing 50 per cent of capacity due to nutrients lacking in the soil,” Adams says. “If they can fertilise early in their harvest they can get a greater yield and potentially double their ouput. But they’re in this cycle where they can’t afford fertilising, leaf rust and pesticide resistance and soil analysis, so they don’t fulfil their potential.” Adams sources his coffee beans from Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia, India, El Salvador, Peru and Honduras and says many coffee

growers sell to the world’s biggest coffee brands at 1970s prices, as they’re afraid to charge more in case they lose the business. Adams isn’t just a champion barista – he’s also a master coffee roaster who sells four custom blends to 80 wholesale partners around Australia, trains baristas and employs 20 people on the Coast. His cafe, Lamkin Lane Espresso Cafe, has been listed in the top 10 coffee outlets worldwide by Beanhunter. It’s safe to say, in the seven years since he launched Tim Adams Specialty Coffee with wife Katie, he’s reached the pinnacle of his career. He could sit back and reap the rewards, but that’s the last thing this fast-talking, highly charged coffee connoisseur wants to do. “I’m in a position now where I’ve done a lot of stuff locally, built a team up, I’m getting local people to drink our product, and now I want to focus on giving back to the communities we’ve been buying off for a number of years. We’re at a point where we can help.” There’s another reason Adams is keen to improve conditions for Hondurans and other struggling coffee growers – he wants to tap into a growing demand for fair trade products. “People want to know their coffee has come from providers who have ethically grown it and sourced it,” he says. “I’m so driven by that and the thing is, I could just buy coffee from wherever I can to make a dollar, but that’s not important to me. By going there and seeing with my own eyes some of the conditions farmers are living in… we just take our lifestyles for granted.” To that end, Adams donates $2 per kilo of his Chapola blend back to the farmers and $1 per kilo for his other blends. “One day I’d like to have all my coffee purchased through the Chapola Project. The ideal would be to have up to 50 different coffees worldwide that have taken a producer from an average coffee grower to the high end specialty market. We have lots of work to do.”

DRY CONDITIONS AND WINDS CREATE THE PERFECT STORM The fires that swept the Coast in late August may be an indication of what’s to come this summer, writes Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

he official bushfire season has not yet started, but in the wake of a major weekend of wild fires on the Sunshine Coast, Caloundra Fire Station area commander Geoff Hunter encourages residents to be vigilant in preparing their homes. The three days from August 18 to 20 were horrific for firefighters, starting with a “fire storm” burning through 700 hectares of bushland in Caloundra. Fortunately, no property was damaged and neither residents nor the 520 firefighters or emergency service personnel battling the blaze over the three days sustained any injuries. However, August 19 was a much more devastating day, with three riverfront homes on Noosa River Drive razed to the ground by fire. Later that afternoon, five caravans were destroyed by fire at a Kilcoy caravan park. Two of them were rented as permanent homes. The causes of both fires are still under investigation. The community has quickly rallied behind these residents and Sir Richard Branson has offered the affected Noosa North Shore residents an opportunity to stay on his Makepeace Island, which is just across the river from their former homes, until they can begin to rebuild their lives. Another fire at Peregian Springs forced the closure of the Sunshine Motorway from Murdering Creek Road to Yandina Coolum Road for five hours on August 20 after a fire flared up in an area that had been burnt out the day before and another bushfire was being closely monitored in Tewantin. Hunter, who was also the incident controller at the August 18 Bells Creek fire, says the low fuel moisture content and high

embers were landing, they were igniting the grasses. “As the fire moved from the highway, it created a firestorm with increased wind that I estimate was moving at about 50 knots.” The fast-moving nature and intensity of the fire prompted an evacuation order for residents in and around Koala Court and Aura, as well as horses from the stables at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club and the nearby industrial estate. Between 70 to 100 people sought refuge in the Lake Kawana Community Centre after it was temporarily transformed into a shelter. Hunter says all of the emergency services, Sunshine Coast Council workers and State Government agencies worked together well and were able to effectively keep residents and property safe. winds that billowed through the region “If I said we were confident all the way created a tinderbox situation for the IMAGE: EMERGENCY SUNSHINE COAST through, it wouldn’t be true,” he says. weekend’s blazes. “We had to anticipate what might happen if we were not The Bells Creek fire started on the edge of the Bruce Highway able to combat the fire.

MY OPINION

FINDING PEACE IN GREECE

THE KEY TO HAPPY RELATIONSHIPS

Sami Muirhead is off to Greece in search of rest, relaxation and retail therapy. She asks: how much is too much when buying souvenirs?

Suzanne Loubris says relationships are doomed to fail if you punish your loved ones when they don’t comply with your invisible rule book.

W

here are you with how much stuff you allow yourself to buy when you go overseas? Because I am off to Greece. I know. And I have purchased a whole second bag before I fly so I can fill it with dinner plates and bottles of olive oil and other totally inappropriate souvenirs. I figure I will probably only go to Greece once, given how far the flight is and how expensive travel is, so I should spend with reckless abandon when it comes to future family heirlooms such as gravy boats with bright yellow lemons and turquoise flowers. I plan to buy dozens of evil eyes and smuggle home gallons of ouzo. How blessed am I to be going to the island of Lemnos? This small rural island is not to be confused with the island of Lesbos. One is lemons and one is lesbians. I am heading off with two female friends on a ‘creative immersion retreat’. I do not really know what the hell that means, but I sure do think it sounds fabulous. I mean, a creative immersion retreat to Mooloolaba would probably involve a swim in the ocean, a kilogram of the finest saltiest king prawns around and a sleep in the shade of a pandanus tree. Creative immersion is the new black. Other than black being the new black. Have you seen the black pasta, black bread rolls and black interiors on The Block that all the hipsters are embracing? I will miss my kids dreadfully and I will

no doubt pine for my husband, but sometimes you need to be away to really relax and really think about how you are tackling the everyday. Our week of sun and swimming in the Aegean Sea involves journaling before breakfast. I am not quite sure what I will be writing about, as my mind tends not to tackle the big issues these days, since having kids and working and just surviving each day. I could probably write a paragraph or two on how hot Jon Snow looked lying in that pile of fur rugs as he stared into the eyes of the Dragon Queen.

“I am hoping the blue Aegean waters will replenish my soul…” If you are not a Game Of Thrones fan, then you will think I have gone completely insane. I could also bang out a few lines about The Bachelor. But other than that, my opinions and pools of interest have become somewhat shallow and dried up. I am hoping the blue Aegean waters will replenish my soul and senses. I’ve been racing on the rat wheel of work, kids, bad food and too much coffee. I have wanted to take up yoga for 11 years. I am not even joking. So perhaps this vacation will jolt me into doing some things that I have put off for over a decade. Sounds a dream doesn’t it?

ouldn’t it be great if schools taught us how to be married? You fall in love with an amazing person – you’re so right for each other. Surely being married is no different, right? Until the first disappointment surfaces. Your mother taught you to hold your cutlery a certain way. To your amazement, you discover your partner was raised by wolves – they hold their knife and fork like shovels, or wave them around in the air. Then you discover they hang the toilet paper the wrong way around. Doesn’t everyone know it should hang in a waterfall effect? What happens when there’s conflict over the right way to stack a dishwasher? Can you be with someone who behaves in such an uncultured way? You may be thinking, what on earth is she on about? How can such trivia matter? But in some cases, a relationship with an amazing human being will end over such controversial etiquette. Small annoyances build, creating niggling conflict and resentment. We can be completely unaware of our invisible rule book, which was created by our parents, our culture and our society. We walk around armed with selfrighteousness and moral superiority, thinking, ‘Why do people do that? Surely they know better. I would never do that’. However, your spouse is being confronted with a personal rule book they

were previously unaware of. It’s so powerful that after 10 years of blissful union, they’ve married you, only to discover they are subjected to an invisible marriage manual and new expectations abound. Without apparent reason, the relationship implodes. Sadly, once someone contravenes our rule book, we see them as wrong and punish them, in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Consider how you punish your loved ones. You don’t? Hmm, let’s see. Have you ever engaged in the silent treatment? Have you spoken in harsh or critical tones? Do you withdraw to the shed, or ‘decide’ you are too tired to make dinner? Do you do things you know they find annoying? Do you criticise? Do you withhold affection? Do you delay returning a call or text? So what is the solution? Can we throw out our rule book? Probably not. It represents our values, after all. Maybe we can choose to withhold our expectations – to consider or appreciate the reasons for our spouse’s ways. From now on, let’s allow ourselves to become curious about why people do what they do, instead of imposing our views. Rather than reacting judgementally, perhaps consider being curious and asking questions; being gentle and gracious in our interactions. This might improve your skills in influence and negotiation, too. In all relationships, we are more effective when we stop judging and start understanding and learning.

MY BODY ADVERTISEMENT

EXPLAINING PAIN AND MOODINESS Jodi Chapman says there’s a biochemical reason why chronic pain and bad moods often go together and awareness makes all the difference.

A

re you aware that chronic pain has a direct link to your brain and mood? Pain causes the release of a neuropeptide known as Substance P from the terminals of the sensory nerves. It’s also found in the brain and the spinal cord, so it’s little wonder that during times of pain or illness, your mood plummets, while your stress levels rise. Not only is Substance P able to reduce your levels of serotonin, causing feelings of depression, anger or sadness, but it can happen in the reverse also. Low serotonin caused by stress or depression has the ability to increase your levels of Substance P, directly increasing levels of pain and inflammation in line with a low mood, becoming a vicious cycle. Understanding this process of illness and pain may help manage your mood and

explain why you feel so negative, angry or depressed. How you interpret information during this time may be from a negative perspective, so things really may not be as bad as they seem. Dealing with the pain is the number one priority, though in some cases, pain is unavoidable, and may take years to overcome, if at all. Knowing this relationship between pain and mood may make all the difference between the choices you make with the people around you, influencing your relationships. Awareness is the key to moving forward and breaking the cycle.

New vitamin C study A study published in the journal Nature has linked deficiency in vitamin C to blood cancer. “There is no suggestion from this article that supplementing chemotherapy or other treatments with vitamin C has any beneficial effect to individual patients with leukaemia, says Associate Professor Steven Lane from QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute. “Rather, this work reinforces the general advice that a healthy, balanced diet containing the recommended intake of essential minerals and vitamins is the best way to keep your body functioning normally, and to recover after life changing diseases such as cancer.”

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. • • • • • • •

BRAND NEW

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. To find out more, please talk to your GP, call 07 5390 6000 or visit the website: sunshinecoastuniversityprivate.com.au

DISCRETIONARY SPEND TO SOFTEN

T

he outlook still poses challenges for Australian discretionary retailing, with consumers facing rising cost pressures (e.g. mortgage repayments, energy prices), wealth effects diminishing (e.g. slowing wage and property price growth) and competition from Amazon approaching. We maintain our Lighten recommendation on Harvey Norman, Myer, Super Retail and JB Hi-Fi. Retail sales in Australia improved during the June quarter. This strength may prove temporary. Specifically, we note the following challenges for retailers: Amazon pushes forward – Amazon is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2018. Its entry could have a multi-level impact on retailers, from market share losses to goods price deflation.

Mortgage re-payments are on the rise – Not only because banks are lifting their mortgage rates, but also because loans are being reset from interest-only to interest and principal. Our economists estimate that over time, the reset of interest only loans could be equivalent to an increase in the household savings rate of nearly 1 percentage point. Energy retailers lock in price increases – In June, the major energy retailers announced increases to gas and electricity prices that will take effect from July 1. Consumer sentiment un-moved – For nine consecutive months the pessimists have outweighed the optimists, with consumer sentiment printing below 100. Currency trepidation – More recently the Australian dollar has traded closer to 80c. A stronger AUD will lower the cost of inputs priced in US dollars, but we caution its continued appreciation could also see a return to the backdrop in 2009-11, where there was a leakage of spending as consumers took advantage of an appreciating AUD to purchase goods more cheaply offshore.

P-PLATER SAFETY Ethan Forge thought he knew all there was to know about driving safely, having earned his P-Plates with ease. But after attending a free P-Plate Safety Program, run by LifeFlight and Ken Mills Toyota, he learned some important new skills that aren’t taught in the practical driving test. “It was a real eye-opener and it was an invaluable night for me,” the Year 12 student says. “The techniques the LifeFlight paramedic, Brad Solomon demonstrated were awesome. I’ve just got my P-plates and I feel much more prepared now.” Participants learn how to recognise dangerous wear and tear on tyres, talk directly with a police officer, gain advice on using the right fuels, and have the opportunity to quiz service experts. 2016 Ericeira World Junior Surfing Champion Isabella Nichols will attend the next event on September 13. Nichols, who is the Ken Mills ambassador, caught up with

Forge at the LifeFlight hangar recently to find out more about what is in store. “When I got my Ps it was like the best freedom I’ve ever had in my life. Mum and Dad didn’t have to drive me to the beach,” Isabella says. “But safety is so important, so the more knowledge you have, the better.” LifeFlight senior paramedic Brad Solomon has been with the charity organisation for more than 20 years and has been at the scene of countless road accidents, many involving young drivers. “When a young driver gets their licence it’s a very exciting time, but driving with friends, playing loud music and texting can be fatal distractions,” Solomon says. “It’s important for these P-platers to recognise that when they get behind the wheel of a car, the responsibility starts and ends with them. We hope to not only teach these drivers how to be safe on the roads by driving to speed limits, maintaining awareness and following road signs, but also what to do if an accident does occur.” Numbers for the education evening are strictly limited to P-Plate drivers, who can bring one parent. The next free P-Plate Safety Program is on at the Ken Mills Toyota Maroochydore Service Centre on Sugar Road on September 13 from 6pm. To book, contact 5443 6277.

FROM THE MAYOR

Our Sunshine Coast is home to some outstanding businesses with great stories to tell. One of those is BizFurn, which is showing what can be achieved nationwide and internationally from its base in our region. Earlier this month, I was delighted to be invited to join the celebrations for the next chapter of BizFurn’s business success with the official opening of a new $30 million purpose-built facility and the announcement of plans for 60 additional jobs at Yandina. BizFurn is a big contributor to the economic health of our region, with its investment estimated to contribute $47.3 million to the local economy annually. And it is growth and investment like this that helps to support business confidence in our region, particularly in our hinterland where innovative companies such as BizFurn are succeeding and taking on the best our nation has to offer. BizFurn started 30 years ago as a backyard operation and has now grown to be a business worth $70 million. My congratulations and best wishes go to founder and managing director Denis Moore and his dedicated staff. Mark Jamieson Mayor Sunshine Coast Council

ENVIRONMENT

ART PRIZE

FUNDING FOR WILDLIFE Koalas, turtles, birds and other native wildlife will be some of the beneficiaries of a new round of environmental partnerships secured by council. A total of 21 groups across the Sunshine Coast, including the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, Reef Check Foundation and Glasshouse Mountains Advancement Network Inc (GMAN) will receive around $600,000 this year, through the Environment Levy contributed by all ratepayers. The partnerships will support the work of 3776 dedicated volunteers who collectively contribute 271,050 volunteer hours to environmental programs across the Sunshine Coast each year. The funding for GMAN will help to maintain a koala food tree plantation developed in partnership with council’s Environmental Operations and Parks & Gardens teams at Pinelands Park in Landsborough. The full list of Environment Levy partnerships is available on council’s website.

COME TO THE EXHIBITION Two local artists are among the 39 finalists whose artworks are featuring in the Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2017 exhibition now open at Caloundra Regional Gallery. The profile of our art prize has grown significantly over the past 12 years and it is now regarded as one of the nation’s leading regional art awards. This year, we received 461 entries from a high-calibre field and the finalists include several artists with strong national and international profiles such as Robert Owen and Daniel von Sturmer. There are also many respected, midcareer artists, including Raquel Ormella, Tim McMonagle and Helga Groves, plus local artists, Joseph Daws and Jennifer Herd. The exhibition is on display until Sunday, October 8. More details are available on gallery.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.

WHAT WE USED TO DO WHEN WE WERE KIDS For most of us +40 year old parents we remember the fun times before smart phones, iPads and gaming devices. A time when were more concerned with connecting with our friends and the great outdoors than connecting with WI-FI.

Chief Adventure Empire Executive Steve Hamlin, Kiara Stegman & Zoe Teys are ready for ADVENTURISM.

It’s all about Nerf Wars, Zorba Ball, team sports and safe archery in the outdoor action bunkers.

Fast forward to 2017 and, according to The Council of Fitness, Sport & Nutrition our, “children now spend more than 7.5 hours a day in front of the screen, e.g. TV, videogames, hand held devices and computers.“ Add to this the growing obesity epidemic and the fact Australian kids are some of the ‘least active in the world’ and it looks like our society is facing one big, fat, screen time, disconnected, problem. These exact thoughts are what sparked Adventure Empire owner and local entrepreneur Brad Teys on his journey to ADVENTURISM. Brad says; “Research shows that today’s children are spending increasing amounts of time in front of screens and smart devices which is resulting in a disconnect, not only with each other, but with the natural environment in which we live. The Sunshine Coast is one of the most beautiful places in Australia, with a year round enviable climate.

Yet our children are opting for screen time instead of activity and this is where ADVENTURISM plays a part in the local community.” So what is ADVENTURISM? ADVENTURISM is the word used to encapsulate Adventure Empire’s wellness vision. Brad, along with his business partner Steve Hamlin, who used to run one of the biggest School Camp businesses in Australia, have built a state of the art rock climbing wall, bouldering challenge and interactive centre in the heart of Caloundra. Due to open its doors Saturday 9th of September, the cutting edge space offers an experience for the whole family with an ADVENTURISM focus. Steve Hamlin says “Our aim is getting kids away from the screen, reconnecting with the community and building a generation of resilient, strong, fit, future leaders.”

The bouldering centre is only the tip of the iceberg. Steve says; “As well as the indoor climbing wall and bouldering centre, Adventure Empire is hosting an outdoor, fun, school holiday program with a difference. There’s interactive activities each day from mountain biking adventures and fishing along the pristine Pumicestone Passage to team building fun in the purpose built Bunker where Nerf wars, safe archery, soccer and ball games rule.” And the action doesn’t stop there; ADVENTURISM is being launched at a number of Caloundra Schools in term 4, as an alternative after school program. Steve says; “Our team is set to take ADVENTURISM into the heart of our school network offering a range of after school programs tailored to kids aged 6-16. The programs focus on growing resilience in youngsters with specially tailored activities designed to build teamwork, coordination, fitness and agility. We aim to help local kids stand up, be strong and reconnect with nature whilst having fun with their peers.” The ADVENTURISM centre, located at 2/2 Park Place, behind Zaraffas and Jetts, at the bottom end of downtown Caloundra, features a challenging, but safe, physical, indoor experience managed and run by a team of highly skilled, experienced, qualified and fully insured instructors.

CALLING ALL NINJAS To celebrate the launch of Adventure Empire the team are inviting all budding ninjas to their NINJA LAUNCH PARTY. FREE climb 10am - 6pm FREE face painting 10am - 2pm FREE sausage sizzle 12 - 2pm Registration is essential, so be sure to go to www.adventureempire.com.au TODAY! 10am - 6pm Saturday 9th of September 2/2 Park Place behind Jetts Caloundra

here’s been plenty of big questions that need answers this week, like why do women always go to the bathroom in pairs? Is it because there’s a free air hockey table in the ladies? If pizza is round, why does it come in a square box? A woman shoots a guy through the heart and the worst thing we can say about her is that she gives love a bad name? Who was the first person hungry enough to even try kale?

Why were the three bears blowing up about their porridge being too hot and too cold? They’re bears, shouldn’t they be eating fish? Is it possible my wife is having an affair? She’s been going to classes for two years and still can’t speak a word of Zumba. How does a Thermos know whether to keep the food hot or cold? Everybody’s asking Where’s Wally? Perhaps a better question is, “Where’s Wally’s parents?”. That kid is always getting lost. Is it possible to summons a demon at IKEA by trying to pronounce the names of their furniture? Is it true that if a woman is wearing red lipstick she’s only got one thing on her mind? She hopes she doesn’t have any on her teeth? Before electricity did they just give murderers the acoustic chair? Is it not weird that when God invented screwdrivers he called the flat one a ‘flathead’ screwdriver and the other one ‘Phil’?

Author: Billy Slater with Richard Hinds Publisher: Penguin Random House RRP: $45 Reviewer: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane We have all seen him in action on the field as the famed Billy ‘The Kid’ and how he has transformed over the years into one of rugby league’s greatest fullbacks. But the notoriously private Melbourne Storm and Queensland playmaker opens up about everything from growing up in the small northern Queensland town of Innisfail, where he was the class clown and struggled through school, to his inner turmoil when choosing between the two loves of his life – horses and rugby. In his own words, which are at time unashamedly ocker, Slater shares memories of his rise to the top. This is a book league fans of all ages can delve into and one that would make an ideal gift for Father’s Day.

thumb ring?”. Could there possibly be room in the craft beer world for another pale ale?”. The answer is yes! Straight outta Reservoir in Melbourne, Hawkers back story is awsome and centres around a bloke called Mazen. From starting the Middle East’s first craft brewery during the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah and exporting beers to 26 different countries around the world, to moving to Australia to start a new venture, Mazen Hajjar has been at the centre of Hawkers, creating some of Australia’s newest and most refreshing new craft beers. The Hawkers Pale Ale is a quintessential American style pale ale, pouring a perfect golden amber and full of punchy character thanks largely to the classic US three: the Amarillo, Citra and Centennial hops, creating a well balanced hoppy, fruity vibe that is a total thirst quencher. I give the Hawkers Pale Ale four out of five thumbs up.

TRAVEL

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR STOPOVERS Catriona Rowntree offers her tips for getting two destinations for the price of one and shares her favourite stopover cities.

T

he stopover has become the story! I know this because I was recently in Dubai filming hotels and activities for travellers – just like you and me – who are turning a stopover into a fullblown holiday. Travellers no longer just pass through the world’s biggest airport; they’re milking their flight path for all it’s worth. I’ve learned the hard way (hello, travelling on my own with two small children) the importance of breaking up a trip. Whether I’m doing a driving holiday in Australia, or heading overseas, trust me about the power of a stopover. On my own, I’m happy to bolt. With companions, letting a trip breathe is much more rewarding. Don’t confuse a stopover with a layover. A stopover means spending at least one night in the city in which you change flights, en route to a final destination. A layover is where you spend a few hours in the airport terminal, stretch your legs, have a coffee, try to keep your kids awake, then join the queue for the next leg.

SHOULD YOU DO A STOPOVER? Before you jump online and pick out your next stopover city, consider these questions:

• What are the stopover rules of the airfare? • Do I need a visa to stopover? Do I have time to get one? What would this cost? • What will the weather be like at the time of travel? Will the heat/humidity/cold be conducive to high-speed sightseeing? • Can I do the city justice in one night? Am I comfortable missing extra days in my final destination?

“Travellers no longer just pass through the world’s biggest airport; they’re milking their flight path for all it’s worth”

DOING STOPOVERS WELL 1. Try to have some local currency. You can get this at the airports, but you never know when you’ll need to tip, make a local phone call (my mobile didn’t work), or have back up for a cab. 2. Have an Uber account. To my surprise my local app works internationally. I felt safe and organised. 3. Pre-organise your airport pickups. This was so stressful for me. I tried to sort everything from home, but life often throws us curve balls when travelling and when my phone didn’t work upon landing, my kids were crying from exhaustion, and I had no local currency, I had to resort to asking a nice local if I could borrow their mobile. It’s good to be prepared.

MY FAVOURITE STOPOVER CITIES & HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF THEM From my own journeys, I’ve whittled down the list to just a few stopover cities that I’m sweet on, and they are Dubai, Bangkok and Los Angeles (LA). Simply because Getaway has taken me there so many times, I’ve started to feel comfortable and safe settling into these foreign locations. But there are many well worth a night or two, en route to Europe, the US, Asia, or elsewhere. I can’t wait to take my children to Dubai. Their pools are above and beyond. But LA taught me a lesson this year when I had to bide my time while waiting to

connect with US friends. Being with children, we just went straight to Disneyland, and had no rules other than to sleep off our jet lag and have fun.

MOTORING PREVIEW

CAN’T BEAT A COROLLA When reliability trumps everything else in a car, you can’t go past the Toyota Corolla – Australia’s top-selling passenger car. Words: Peter Atkinson, AAP.

L

et’s do a quick little test. How many people do you know who’ve owned a Toyota Corolla? If you haven’t owned one yourself, chances are that someone from your family – or your group of friends and acquaintances – most certainly has. So it shouldn’t surprise that it’s now 50 years since the first Corolla arrived in Australia. Perhaps more remarkably, given that the Corolla is now entering its sixth decade, is that it continues to be the country’s top-selling passenger vehicle.

And its reputation owes much to that longevity – founded upon its ability to keep on keeping on. The Corolla is legendary for ability to do everything competently, efficiently, sensibly, logically. Of course, none of those are words that exactly get the blood racing. And to be honest, neither does the Corolla. I recently saw a review that described the Corolla as “utterly inoffensive”. Which, of course, it is. And which, of course, is precisely the point. Not everybody wants or needs blinding

some time. Toyota’s latest design language is evident in the Corolla’s chromy grille and front-end treatment, the upmarket-looking headlights and tail-lights and the generally more modern styling. Inside, too, it’s more cohesive and welcoming than models past. But nothing flashy or gratuitous. Why would there be? For buyers who’ve enjoyed years of fuss-free, reliable motoring from their Corolla, there’s no reason to look anywhere else.

TOYOTA COROLLA ASCENT HOW BIG? Not the largest in this class, but interior space and a very useable cargo space are adequate for five, at a pinch. HOW FAST? There are rivals that accelerate quicker. But the Corolla’s 1.8-litre, normallyaspirated four-cylinder engine delivers perky performance. The six-speed manual transmission in our test machine featured a light, progressive clutch and crisp, accurate gear changes. HOW THIRSTY? Expect an average consumption of 6.7L/100km in the manual, and about 6.1L/100km in the CVT auto. HOW MUCH? For a car with so much history and such a reputation, the Corolla represents decent value with prices starting from $20,950 drive away. The most expensive Corolla tips just past the $30k barrier – while the super-efficient Corolla Hybrid sits midway between the two.

acceleration. Or stunning good looks. Or a plush interior. Or the latest electronic gadgets. And, true to its incredibly loyal band of buyers, the Corolla offers virtually none of those things. It just works. Not very romantic, I know. And you’d think not the kind of sales proposition that might turn a car into an all-time best-seller. But that’s what the Corolla is. Since its launch there have been more than 44 million Corollas sold globally. And they are still selling at a rate of one every 15 seconds – or 1.3 million every year. In Australia the Corolla has sold at least 30,000 units every year this century. For the past four years it was Australia’s top-selling passenger car, and is vying for the title again in 2017. We recently tested the Corolla in its most basic form – the entry-level Ascent hatch with six-speed manual transmission – a car that will set you back just $20,190. It features bulletproof build quality, unerring reliability, a practical, sensiblypresented cockpit with enough space for passengers and their cargo. An efficient, reliable engine and transmission package – including a Constantly Variable automatic transmission that cuts fuel consumption by about 10 percent over the manual model. This latest Corolla does deliver perhaps the most attractive blend of interior and exterior styling we’ve seen on this model for

HOW TO MAKE MORE MONEY WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME

S

unshine Coast property is in demand right now and real estate agents across the region are fielding enquiries from buyers who are looking to secure a slice of the ideal lifestyle on offer in the region. While it is true that demand is outstripping the supply of available properties, sellers cannot become complacent and hope that a simple online campaign will net them the best price the market will pay. Studies carried out over two years by RPData/CoreLogic show sellers who invest in both print and online advertising campaigns

SMART BUYING AT BUDERIM’S SAGE LANDING

sell their homes faster and for a higher price. This is because you are increasing the exposure of your property beyond the savvy internet investors, who are buying purely based on research and price. An added print campaign through My Weekly Preview, brings your property to more than 80,000 readers each week and through this medium, you will attract the emotional buyers, who will fall in love with your property and consider a purchase even though they were not actively looking in the market.

A new Buderim luxury enclave is under construction at Sage Landing. HMR projects director Ken Reed says the response from the market has been really positive with 40 per cent of the 13 lots already sold and a number of other lots receiving keen interest from both local Buderim residents looking to downsize and those further afield. “As long-term Sunshine Coast locals and Buderim residents ourselves, we’ve made a conscious effort to design a development that incorporates the best of Buderim living, capitalising on the village lifestyle and the leafy surrounds,” Reed says. “We had long been looking for a site to build a limited number of quality homes within easy walking distance of the village and it’s great to see the sod turned and civil works commencing as Sage Landing comes to fruition.” Ray White Buderim Real Estate agent Lew Pottinger says the commencement of construction marks a significant milestone for both the development and the Buderim housing market as a whole.

“Over the past few decades, there has been a limited number of subdivisions on top of Buderim, and of these, the majority have centred on expansive homes that require a lot of upkeep in terms of lawns and other maintenance,” he says. “While Sage Landing’s high-end homes are still spacious enough to accommodate families or couples, the development has been specifically designed to be low maintenance, making it more manageable for occupants.” Sage Landing is located in a secluded cul-de-sac and offers both low set homes and larger, two-storey floorplans.

Idyllically placed amongst the trees, and just moments from the glittering waters of Shelly Beach, words simply cannot describe how truly breathtaking this place is. This magnificent home is on an exceedingly private 976m2 allotment with plenty of space for your boat and car collection. This home was built in the 1940’s, handcrafted from solid concrete and beautiful hardwood timbers. It is lovely and cool in summer and warm in winter, but it you’re feeling a little chilly, it has a charming working fireplace. No matter which way you look, there is always beachfront abound. Take your pick from the family friendly Kings Beach or Shelly beach, go for a surf or perhaps enjoy a spot of fishing. There’s no wonder as to why it’s such a tightly held pocket.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Our whale friends are heading south so with no waves around, this is not a bad fallback plan. Although given this strange weather, it will be interesting to see what winds we get – howling northerlies? Man, I am going to have to scrap a cheap Indo trip in to get some waves… who’s in ? Now the next contest is Trestles and it will be hard seeing anyone beating Medina or Toledo – let’s hope Julian scores some final points to keep the campaign alive. Beach Beat have some new toys in the racks and the factory are knocking out some incredible boards. “Keep on rocking in the free world” – Neil Young.

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)

Rams can be a selfish lot, as you become self-absorbed with your daily dramas. But, with the full moon and Neptune highlighting your humanitarian side, it’s a wonderful week to re-connect with others and help those around you.

If you expect a domestic matter to proceed at a cracking pace then you’ll be disappointed. Everything will take longer than expected, as retro Mercury muddles proceedings and the full moon provides distracting detours along the way.

After three long weeks, thank goodness Mercury (your patron planet) finally goes direct on Tuesday. Communication, conversation, business, education and travel should all gradually improve as the week progresses.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

With retrograde Mercury, nebulous Neptune and a loopy full moon, things won’t run smoothly. Especially with communication, education and travel. If you adapt to circumstances, and accept mistakes with good grace, then you’ll manage fine.

Self-delusion is a danger early in the week. Be clear in the way you explain things to other people, otherwise your meaning will be scrambled. Then Mercury goes direct (in your sign) so communication should start to improve from Wednesday.

This week’s stars highlight your helpful nature and your strong desire to be of service to others. But do other people actually require your assistance? With Mars moving into your sign, be careful you’re not just being a bossy meddler.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

Have you been burning the midnight oil and now you’re suffering? Or have you been running around on auto-pilot, making careless mistakes? With the Sun and Mars both hibernating in your solitude zone, it’s the perfect week to go AWOL.

Early in the week Neptune, Mercury and the full moon all shine a spotlight on how you communicate with others. Especially a child, lover or friend. If you don’t take the time to listen to what they are saying, then you’ll get your wires crossed.

A friend or family member is looking to you for emotional support, inspiration or encouragement. Not criticism or tactless comments. So adjust your approach accordingly. Mars charges through your career zone from Tuesday until October 22.

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

Avoid being gullible early in the week, when Mercury is still retrograde and someone may try to pull the wool over your eyes. Stay alert. Aim to channel Wednesday’s full moon energy into friendships, community projects or humanitarian pursuits.

This week Neptune and the full moon scramble your financial antennae. So it’s not a good time to borrow funds, invest or lend money to others, as you’re liable to make decisions based on your emotions (which are fluctuating wildly under the full moon).

The planets confuse love and communication, so be careful you’re not viewing people through rose-coloured glasses. Creative inspiration is highlighted, but don’t get so carried away that you head into the realm of pure fantasy.

THE LAST WORD

80s KIDS MOVIES THAT STILL ROCK Richard O’Leary takes a trip down memory lane watching Back to the Future with his kids.

O

ne of the things I cherish most about being a dad is being able to share with my children some of the cool stuff I did when I was a kid, whether it be climbing trees, playing Monopoly or most recently watching movies from the ‘80s. For a few months now, my wife and I have been trying to get the boys to choose Back To The Future for our Friday movie night, but they’ve resisted, mainly due to the lame trailer we showed them. If you get a second go to YouTube and take a look at it, Neighbours promos looks classy in comparison. It’s amazing anyone turned up to watch the movie at all. But after launching a concerted communication campaign over many weeks, our six- and eight-year-olds finally succumbed last Friday and we all sat down to watch the first instalment of the series, starring a young Michael J Fox. Having seen the movie dozens of times,

I paid just as much attention to the reactions of my boys as they took it all in – concerned the movie may not have aged as well as I had hoped. I shouldn’t have worried; my boys screamed in horror when the younger version of Marty’s mum tries to kiss him,

“This experience has provided my wife and I with a time machine…” laughed when Biff’s car fills with manure, and twisted themselves in knots when the wire cable unplugs just before the lightning is expected to strike the town clock. They rode every scene, just like we did all those years ago, and cheered with delight when Marty saves his parent’s courtship and

his family’s future. The only question my boys had when it was all finished was, “can we watch Back to the Future 2 tomorrow night?” Which we did – although it’s a bit strange when the future depicted in the sequel was actually two years ago and my boys couldn’t help but point out how many things the movie got wrong (to be fair, it got a lot right: more robots, computerised petrol stations, fingerprint scanners and drones). In many ways, this experience has provided my wife and I with a time machine to teleport our kids to the other wonders of the ‘80s, that decidedly weird decade that gave us leg warmers, the Rubik’s Cube, heat sensitive shirts and Cabbage Patch Kids. I wonder if I could find some fluoro socks for them to wear before we watch Back to the Future 3 next week? olearylastword@gmail.com

Could Your Brain Do With A Boost? Did you know...

New solid scientific evidence suggests that adjusting the spine changes the way the pre-frontal cortex of the brain is processing information by almost 20%.

Research shows chiropractic changes brain function by almost 20%*

The pre-frontal cortex is responsible for behaviour, goal directed tasks, decision making, memory and attention, intelligence, processing of pain and emotional response to it, autonomic function, motor control, eye movements and spatial awareness.
