THE FIRST WORD
ISSUE 466 September 15, 2017
Since 2002, The Diary of a Wombat has been one of Australia’s favourite picture books. Now, Jackie French’s award-winning tale about a cheeky wombat is coming to life on stage. My Weekly Preview, together with the Lake Kawana Community Centre, is giving one reader the chance to win a family pass to see the fun and entertaining performance on September 19 at 12.30pm.
FROM THE EDITOR
hen I was a kid, sport was something we played on a field or in the backyard. Netball, cricket, basketball, soccer. This may make me sound old, but it’s the truth. That’s why I was surprised to read about the latest sporting craze. E-sport is the multimilliondollar ‘sport’ sweeping the globe and attracting more spectator numbers than many of the traditional codes. Up to 40 million people tune in to watch players battle it out in video game land. It’s estimated that e-sports will generate almost $700 million in revenue this year alone. Perhaps you need to be from generation Z, or an IT geek, to appreciate the thrill of multi-player video game competition? Either way, it’s not going away any time soon. School eSports Australia was established last year to provide a safe environment for children to participate, and to assist schools in implementing relevant programs. Technology is here to stay, that’s for sure. Our world is changing at a fast pace and so too are the way our children are educated and influenced. However, I can’t help but ask: is this truly a sport? And, is e-sport something we want our children participating in regularly? In this week’s feature story, we take a look at the importance of getting kids away from screens and back into the great outdoors. It raises some interesting questions. Happy reading.

LADY OF LEARNING First job? Telephone exchange operator in small country town Allora, Darling Downs. What are you currently working on? My son Drew runs our business, Moby Vic’s, following my husband’s death over 20 years ago. He and I regularly discuss the operation and future of the company, which in turn allows me to contribute more time to various community commitments that I am currently involved with. Your family includes… My daughter Wendy, husband Andre and son Zane. My son Drew, wife Meegan and daughters Heidi and Sophia. First car? Blue Ford Zephyr automatic sedan. Favourite book? Mao’s Last Dancer by Li Cunxin. What are you reading now? Flower Addict by Saskia Havekes, an internationally acclaimed florist and owner of renowned Sydney shop Grandiflora. Photography by Nicholas Watt encourages you to take a closer look at the natural beauty around us. Favourite song? Hallelujah sung either by KD Lang, Leonard Cohen or Jeff Buckley. Best advice you’ve been given? Pursue the paths that work for you. Success is the freedom to be yourself.
Jocelyn Walker BIO
Mooloolaba’s Jocelyn Walker is a Foundation Board member of the University of the Sunshine Coast. In 1999, she established the Vic Walker Memorial Scholarship in memory of her late husband, Vic Walker. The scholarship is open to Year 12 Immanuel Lutheran College graduates who undertake to complete their degree at the university. In 2011, the university awarded her an Honorary Senior Fellowship.
What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? The rooftop terrace of my home on The Spit Mooloolaba overlooking this slender finger of land between ocean and river where the sunsets are truly magical. One thing you’d change about the Coast? Resolve our major traffic and parking issues, particularly in holiday periods. Best day in your life? Three actually, when each of my grandchildren were born.
Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? Twenty years ago at a time I was recently widowed, I was invited to become a member of the Foundation Board at our newly constructed university. There were challenging times ahead but mostly rewarding. It has been an honour and privilege to have perhaps played a small role in the growth, progress, increasing recognition and impact the University of the Sunshine Coast has made. I am proud today to see we have a thriving campus with state-of-theart technology providing advanced education in our region, ensuring the next generation is well educated. Your greatest regret? Not having learnt to play golf at an earlier age. What achievement are you most proud of? The design and construction of my home. It required much decision making despite having the advice and knowledge of professional people to assist me. I will always be grateful to them. The existing building had to be demolished before planning could take place. It was almost a full-time job and quite challenging at times, but 15 years later I would not change a thing. You are happiest when? I am surrounded by my family sharing special times together. In particular, the vacations we share together whenever time allows. Our ski trips overseas are my most memorable. I am fortunate both my children live nearby, which means I can enjoy the pleasure of their company regularly. My grandchildren bring me the greatest joy ever. What frustrates you the most? Traffic congestion on the Bruce Highway. Advice to your 18-year-old self? Trust your own instincts to become more productive and successful. Tea or coffee? Both. Earl Grey tea and latte. NRL or AFL? AFL. I have been fortunate to attend several grand finals at the MCG.

GETTING KIDS OFF SCREENS AND OUTDOORS An alarming new study has found children across all age groups are far exceeding the daily recommendations for screen use and we are yet to see the full impacts. It’s time to get our kids unplugged and active again. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
“The most important factors in keeping kids active are the memories and family bonding that is created in the process”
Three of Sharny and Julius Kieser’s children make a splash: Alexis Kieser, Emmett Kieser and Danté Kieser (snorkelling)
rom 2003 to 2015, Caloundra’s Steven Hamlin ran school sport and recreation camps for the Queensland government. In those 12 years, he noticed some disturbing changes in each new crop of kids coming to the camps – the most noticeable being many of them could no longer ride a bike. “You’d be surprised how many kids can’t ride a bike,” he says. “In one of the biggest camps I worked at, if we had a group of 150 kids, there would be at least 10 per cent who couldn’t ride a bike and had never ridden a bike. Kids aren’t being kids anymore. They’re not getting out.” According to recent data released by Victoria University, in the past 10 years, children’s bike sales have dropped by 110,000 units – from 492,000 to 382,000 – a drop of 22 per cent. This sharp decline has health experts concerned about the increasingly sedentary behaviour of young children. Director of the Australian Health Policy Collaboration at Victoria University, Rosemary Calder, says 71 per cent of children and 92 per cent of those aged between 12 and 17 do not meet the recommended guidelines for physical activity in Australia. Riding a bike should be a rite of passage for children, so what’s going on? Hamlin puts part of the blame on spiralling screen time, which over the past 10 years, has rapidly consumed more and more of our children’s
12 My Weekly Preview | September 15, 2017
attention. He ran school camps during the years prolific screen use was taken up, so he’s seen the effects first-hand. “In the last four or five years, kids started coming to the camp and instead of focusing on each other and the recreational activities, they would be more worried about wifi and internet services. On the social side of things, they’ve become more socially awkward because they’re used to spending time on a screen, rather than interacting face to face.”
to $1.87 million over the next three years to fund Nature Play, a campaign designed to encourage children to go back to their natural habitat – outdoors – where they can have fun and get filthy climbing, running, walking and playing in nature. Outdoor activities like searching for tadpoles in a creek, jumping in puddles, rolling down a grassy hill, climbing trees, making mud pies or playing on rope swings are listed on colourful posters you can
“One of the most surprising things was how often very young children are using technology alone and unsupervised” Dr Anthea Rhodes, Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne
In just one generation, the way our children play has changed dramatically. Screens have increasingly replaced outdoor play as our children’s activity of choice, alarming health authorities and governments, who are now pouring taxpayer dollars into promotional campaigns to encourage children to play outside. In July, the Labor Government committed
download from Nature Play QLD’s website. The organisation’s mission is to increase the time Queensland kids spend in unstructured play outdoors and in nature, a fundamental requirement for a full and healthy childhood – and something schools are too bogged down by risk assessments to provide. Playing outside in nature improves cognitive, social and emotional development,
builds resilience and creativity, helps children appreciate and want to care for nature later in life, and gives them a boost of exercise in the fresh air. But overwhelmingly, kids are ditching the great outdoors for the great indoors, sitting on their behinds with their eyes glued to a screen, which can cause eye fatigue and impairment in visual acuity and focus, inability to concentrate and may cause headaches and neck and shoulder pain, or lead to obesity. Dr Anthea Rhodes is a paediatrician at the Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne and the director of the Australian Child Health Poll, published on June 21 and titled Screen Time: What’s happening our homes? She surveyed 1977 parents and collected data on 3797 of their children aged between one month and 18 years. “This is the first time we’ve had an up-to-date look at how households are functioning with technology,” Rhodes tells My Weekly Preview. “One of the most surprising things was how often very young children are using technology alone and unsupervised.” Rhodes found the majority of Australian children, across all age groups, are exceeding the current national recommended guidelines for screen time. Teenagers are the heaviest users at almost 44 hours on average per week. Infants and toddlers are averaging Dream Gardens 14 hours, kids aged two two TV’s to five are clocking up presenter Michael McCoy 26 hours a week, and those in the six to 12 age myweeklypreview.com.au
11/09/2017 2:52:40 PM
bracket average 32 hours per week. Almost all teenagers, two-thirds of primary kids and one-third of preschoolers own their own tablet or smartphone. “Generally speaking, entertainment on technology is relatively cheap,” Rhodes says. “Less than five per cent of respondents thought cost was a problem. It’s much cheaper than many other ways to entertain children that might be better for their health. Even getting out the craft and glue might cost money and make a mess.” Research suggests there are a number of factors contributing to screen overuse in children, including two busy parents both in work, a lack of access to outdoor green space and a sense among parents that children are less safe than in generations past. But while she hesitates to call it an epidemic, Rhodes says too much screen use is undoubtedly harming our children – though to what level, we’re still unsure. “It’s very new – it’s only 10 years since we had the first iPhone. Any major change in the way society functions will have impacts on the health of that society. Screen-based use at the level it’s at now is still very new and we’re only just starting to understand the impacts it’s having. “What we learnt from this study is technology use, screen-based device use, is the new normal, even for young children. The horse has bolted. We’re at the point where we need to think about how it’s used so we maximise the positive and minimise the health impacts. “You can limit the time they use it – every hour with a screen-based device is an hour spent not doing something else. But beyond that, it’s about the content and the quality. That’s about parents being able to research what’s age appropriate and high quality. It’s also important for parents to talk about what their kids are seeing online and watch it with them – co- viewing forms healthier habits. “Tech is now a given, but we have to say don’t forget to have time outdoors and face-to-face time, where you put screens
away. It’s important we prioritise what’s healthy for children. It’s about communities having the opportunity there for children to be outside and exercising and physically active.” To address the imbalance, businesses are beginning to pop up to fill the need for outdoor, active play that is supervised by qualified professionals and is fun and social, without the pressures on families that go along with competition sport.
Steve Hamlin and Brad Teys have teamed up to offer a new way for kids to play After his years running school camps, Hamlin was thrilled to be approached by Shelly Beach businessman, Brad Teys to run a new style of recreation program for kids. They’re opening Adventure Empire in Caloundra on September 9, with the aim of reconnecting kids aged six to 16 with real-world fun, exercise, activity and adventure. It offers indoor climbing and bouldering, an after-school program they call ‘adventurism’, holiday programs and expeditions. Teys, originally a civil engineer who has run a number of businesses, believes we’re in the grips of a major health issue. “Every time I talk to people about the wellbeing of our children, there’s quite a
serious concern expressed by people in my age group – the 40 to 50 group – we were the generation before screens. We all used to run around after school, ride our bikes and play outside till dark. There’s a really deep concern about the state of mind and the overall wellbeing of our youth. They’re watching their parents engage on screens – we’re all guilty of it. The lack of real interaction and play-based interaction is, I think, an epidemic that we haven’t seen the full effects of yet. “I have seen a number of young people that are friends of our family struggling with anxiety and I’ve heard of scenarios, which are quite common now, where doctors are administering antidepressant type drugs to these young developing minds.” Teys envisages parents dropping their kids off for after-school or holiday adventures and is working on organising government subsidies to make the cost comparable to a day care centre. If the Caloundra model is successful, he and Hamlin hope to roll out other locations, like a Jetts Gym for kids. “I love the idea of adding something back to society,” Teys says. “I would hope to think in a very small way, we’ll be able to build a more resilient, stronger nation through having kids become self-sufficient, more resilient and stand up for themselves because they’ve been able to engage more in a social environment in an active manner. I don’t think they need any more screen time. “What do you think is going to happen in 10 years’ time for the screen generation? There’s no way in the world there won’t be any repercussions.” While Rhodes says there’s no evidence yet that screens are creating a generation of damaged kids who will become a burden to society, we do know our kids are far from active enough, and obesity levels are rising. “I have heard people talk in public health that sitting is the new smoking,” says Rhodes. “What we’re seeing with screen time is it’s incredibly closely linked with sedentary behaviour, which is one of our biggest health issues. It’s changing the way we live.”

Queensland fitspo couple Julius and Sharny Kieser travel the world with their six kids. Sharny shares her advice: The most important factors in keeping kids active are the memories and family bonding that is created in the process. When parents keep active with their kids, it creates ongoing habits for kids to want to continue into adulthood, and then continue with their kids. You don’t have to enrol them in organised sports, you can simply run around in the backyard for 15 minutes with them. You can also do things like hop scotch or let your kids join in on your workout at home by doing lunges, squats, push-ups or other body weighted exercises. Playing at the beach is something our kids love. They also love bike riding and jumping on the trampoline with us. We also continue our daily 10 to 15-minute workouts, which our kids just join in on and love. As parents, we need to keep remembering that our kids just love time with us. Having fun, being active, doing what we do. Exercise has been easy for us to maintain as you really can do it anywhere when you just involve your kids in what you are doing.

RARE WHITE KOALA JOEY BORN AT AUSTRALIA ZOO
There’s been koala joey fever at Australia Zoo over the past few months, but now the season has become even more exciting with an incredibly rare white koala joey delighting guests who catch a glimpse of her. This little joey’s extremely pale colouration is caused by a recessive gene. Dr Rosie Booth, the director of the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, says, “In veterinary science it’s often referred to as the ‘silvering gene’, where animals are born with white or very pale fur and, just like baby teeth, they eventually shed their baby fur and the regular adult colouration comes through.” Australia Zoo’s white joey is yet to be named and Tourism Australia wants naming suggestions via the Tourism Australia Facebook page at bit.ly/2wxYZHw.
CURRIMUNDI LAKE REOPENS
Vintage Calendar Girls founder Misty Bland has announced this year’s fundraising beneficiary as Shakira Frisby, the 2018 calendar cover girl who posed with former Dancing with the Stars judge Todd McKenney and Renovating for Profit founder Cherie Barber. Frisby’s life changed forever when she was diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 18. The outgoing Battery Hill resident, who is now 22, is still working through the limitations the tumour has put on her life. Bland says Frisby is a worthy recipient this year and she hopes Sunshine Coast residents will buy the 2018 calendars. One hundred per cent of the $20 price will go towards funding a much-needed holiday for Frisby and her family. The calendar is available at facebook.com/Vintagecalendargirls.

The Sunshine Coast Council announced earlier this week that Currimundi Lake will be reopened following its closure to combat biting midges. The lake is regularly closed by the council to help inhibit the breeding of the dreaded midge, but it occurred earlier this year, back in July, when the lake entrance closed naturally. In previous years, the council manually closed the lake’s entrance from the ocean in late August or early September. This year’s earlier closure means the lake has now reopened.
SANAD Capital has received Sunshine Coast Council approval to begin bulk earthworks on its recently revealed active lifestyle destination ACTVENTURE. The council approved the work on September 4, and SANAD immediately commenced preparations to engage local contractors to begin moving earth. Tenders went out last week to six civil contractors on the Sunshine Coast and in Brisbane, who will submit their bids to complete the bulk earthworks for the entire site. In its first phase, the four-phase, 24-hectare project will include a state-of-the-art water park, a great lawn for major events, concerts and community activities, and a 6000-square metre retail and restaurant precinct.
CAR TRIP IS JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED For the second year in a row local GP Dr Wayne Herdy and co-driver Bernard Ballantine are taking part in the Variety Bash. Herdy and Ballantine have decided to incorporate a preventative health theme into this year’s trip. “We will be promoting in particular the importance of regular breast screens and prostrate checks at all our stops along the trip,” Herdy says. The Bash (which Bernard Ballantine (left) and this year left from Caloundra Esplanade on Dr Wayne Herdy August 29 before heading to Longreach and then onto Airlie Beach) raises money to benefit children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs.

ADVENTUROUS NEW LIFE LANDS IN MALENY ARTIST’S LAP A Maleny woman’s artwork depicting traditional footwear has led her to an exotic new life in a seaside town in Morocco. WORDS: Rada Rouse.
our years ago, an eye for pattern and a love of the exotic led then Maleny-based artist Sonja Georgeson to make a series of linocut prints depicting the traditional footwear of far-flung countries. Indian shoes against a striking fabric, Japanese sandals paired with exquisite paper, and the pointy-toe leather slippers called babouche, ubiquitous in Morocco, were displayed against an old map of the north African country that she had never visited. But a month later, Sonja received a surprise invitation to be the art tutor on an Australian-run tour of Morocco, and now she lives there, in the relaxed seaside city of Essaouria on the Atlantic coast. “The work I do can sometimes be prophetic,” Georgeson says. “I can do a piece of work that ends up coming true.” Certainly no-one could have foreseen that the centuries-old babouche would suddenly become trendy for the fashion-conscious, being pronounced the ‘it’ shoe of 2016 by Vogue magazine as labels including Prada, Celine, Michael Kors and Chanel produced versions. This year, Georgeson herself returned to the theme with a new, highly-patterned, hand-coloured babouche linocut among her collection currently on exhibition, along with 10 other artists’ works, for the Maleny Printmakers, a group she founded in 2012. The well-travelled artist and teacher, whose creativity extends across a range of media including painting, collage and jewellery, loves exploring the history of objects that
“Morocco combines an aesthetic from the Middle East, Europe and Africa” “I like exploring the interior and the exterior, whether it’s a building or a person.” Georgeson has been soaking up Morocco’s indigenous Berber culture and running small group tours with a focus on stimulating the senses – “you have the spices, the perfumes, the textiles, the craft”. She likes tailoring tours for “women of a certain age who are looking for a bit of excitement and inspiration”. It’s a very different life from the one she had in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, but ever-adventurous Georgeson thinks it was probably meant to happen. “Morocco combines an aesthetic from the Middle East, Europe and Africa. I have actually been a lover of all things African – music, design, style – since I was a teenager.” hold meaning for people. “Because I’m interested in anthropology and archaeology, my work is always about digging deep,” she says.

PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN
THE CHANGING FACE OF THE COAST
Sami Muirhead says Child Protection Week is a timely reminder to thank the men and women who fight to protect our children from harm.
Rebecca Grisman has noticed the Sunshine Coast becoming more culturally diverse as a younger demographic settles in.
trong people stand up for themselves. Stronger people stand up for others.” It is a commonly used saying I have always loved. I had the privilege of hosting activities to launch Child Protection Week on the Sunshine Coast. The region’s best and brightest gathered in one room as they do once a year to share their knowledge and tips on helping fight the good fight. It was a pretty special bunch of people and they all shared one common trait: they’re all dedicated to helping kids. The professionals include police officers, nurses, teachers, foster care workers and child psychologists. They are our army of superheroes fighting the monsters who sexually abuse our kids, or helping to find homes for children where they will be safe and go to sleep with food in their stomachs. It is a very real fight despite the fact most of us go about our lives blissfully unaware of the monsters in our midst or the parents who simply cannot look after their kids. Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Sommerville is with the Child Protection Agency and says we should not make the mistake of thinking only strangers want to hurt our children. “It’s not just stranger danger we need to think about as mostly a child is offended by someone they know,” he says. “A member of their family, an uncle or an aunt or a neighbour may be sexually abusing a child. It is often someone the child knows, so
parents need to talk to their kids to remind them if something happens that doesn’t feel quite right they can talk to their parents or a teacher or someone they trust.” It raises questions about what age your child should go to sleepovers doesn’t it? Child Protection week made me think about how much I love my own children and how grateful I am that we have these people working to protect our kids from evil. It also reminded me of a tragic story that affected me deeply when I covered it in 1998. The little boy at the centre of the horror nearly 20 years ago was dubbed ‘the boy in the box’. I was a journalist working for the local news at the time when we were called to a Yandina caravan park. ‘Mathew’ had 100 cigarette burns, a broken leg and an axe wound to his head. He had been forced to drink his own urine and live in a box under a bed for two weeks until a neighbour answered his calls of help. I often wondered what happened to Mathew. I know he eventually went into foster care. I have a three-year-old now with chubby legs and an infectious giggle. I do not for the life of me understand how anyone could inflict pain on a child of this age. But I have thought of him often over the past two decades and only hope he got a second chance in life and is loved and secure today. So on behalf of all the mums and dads on the Coast, we thank all those who work in child protection and keep our world a little safer.

t’s pretty exciting how the faces around us are changing as our region grows. The Coast was once known for the steady influx of retiring people moving here for the sun and surf beaches from southern climes, out west, the hinterland ranges, large grazing properties inland and the tropical north. We had a lot of nicknames for some suburbs that I barely hear anymore. Regional statistics suggest to me that it’s because the new wave of seachangers and treechangers is now more likely made up of families seeking to raise their kids in a healthy, liveable, natural environment that also offers flexible working options. Those families are also more ethnically and culturally diverse and I see the proof in the booming number of multicultural events on offer every week. I play a game with my seven-year-old son where we spin the globe, he randomly stops it and we go find a place to eat or visit that’s connected with that country. So far we’ve experienced a Japanese festival, Thai noodles, Brazilian music, American football, Argentinian tango, African drumming and Nepalese food, all within the boundaries of the greater Sunshine Coast. It’s a fun challenge and it’s probably been more eye-opening for me than for him, to learn just how many diverse groups are humming within our community. Local age demographic statistics do slippery dip again though when it comes to young people graduating school and job
seeking. We face the same perennial issue as most regional towns when it comes to retaining our school leavers. I understand that it’s almost a rite of passage to leave the nest to take up a trade or enrol in courses anywhere but home – I did it too. I already dread having this conversation with my kid within the next 10 years. A new and interesting spike though, is the growing number of skilled and tertiary educated 20-somethings who are settling locally. It’s a heartening sign that the Sunshine Coast’s increasing opportunities are clearer to people of every age and perhaps the balance between affordability and comparative wage rates is improving, so that buying a home or business and creating a career here is more attractive. There is an accompanying upward bump in diversity and I’m pleased to see that too. I think a lot about our future region and how it will look, feel and thrive in a decade and more. I think about it from my own shoes as I inch towards a milestone year; from my parents’ perspective as they begin considering aged care; and on behalf of my second grader, plus all my fellow parents who are wondering what we can all create or contribute to give our kids the same or better opportunities. Wherever we are from and however long we’ve been here ultimately doesn’t matter, not as much as what we can do to make this place better, friendlier and more robust while we share it.

FROM DEEP PAIN TO PEACE OF MIND Calin Manuela Darling found her own way back to happiness after hitting rock bottom and now wants to help others. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
uderim nursing student Calin Manuela Darling has not had an easy life. Six years ago, at the age of 19, she hit such a low point she threw herself in front of a truck. When it narrowly missed her, she was forced to re-examine her life. “I’d been volunteering in Thailand, came home and struggled to find work for a very long time and I got heavily depressed,” she says. “I struggled with that for a few years and that’s what led me to a suicidal place. “I had been sitting at train stations at night, contemplating throwing myself in front of a train. I’m embarrassed that I was in that state. Then one night, I was walking in a dark street and a truck came past. I was in a completely different mindset. It’s something that overtakes you. I just lunged myself in front of the truck and it swerved and missed me. I was swearing at the heavens: ‘I just want to help people. If there’s ever a chance, give me a chance, give me something.’” That something was the Silver Linings Project, a beautiful coffee table book of photos and stories Darling has produced to depict women’s struggles and triumphs over mental and physical illness. Darling appears in the book along with 12 other models dressed in custom-made, bird-inspired dresses to symbolise their flight to freedom from pain. Fashion designers including Cindy Vogels of the Devoted Milliner, Ana Pribylova of Ana Bella Millinery and Julia Rose got on board and the project has also been endorsed by iconic Australian actor Geoffrey Rush. Darling pulled together 96 companies to lend their expertise to the project, with the aim of donating 10,000 copies to Australian hospitals, to keep in their

waiting rooms for uplifting and inspiring reading. “Looking back I think oh my god, how did I do that? Now that I’ve finished the book I’ve realised this Silver Linings book was my own silver lining. It was a healing journey for me.” Darling was born in Romania in 1993, in the period immediately following dictator Nicolae Ceausescu’s rule.
Darling’s parents gave her up at birth and she spent her first three-and-a-half years in an orphanage, before Sunshine Coast family Mark and Kym Darling adopted her. She describes her childhood as tumultuous and says she struggled with school, self-esteem and family issues. At 17, her Australian family sent an investigator to Romania to find her birth family. Darling discovered she had four siblings but didn’t get an explanation as to why she was given away. She’s now in touch with her Romanian family and even discovered an aunt living 10 minutes down the road. “I see her every month – because she speaks fluent English we Skype to my parents. She’s wonderful. Romanians are very eccentric. They always think you need to eat.” Darling is now on the lookout for a corporate sponsor to help with the book’s production and distribution costs. She needs to raise $125,000 and while she’s had plenty of media coverage, the help she needs has not been forthcoming. “I went on the Today Show and only four people donated,” she says. “I spent a week deeply upset that I spent three years doing this book, living off baked beans, and only four people donated. I came out of that the day after my 25th birthday and thought, what is meant to be, will be. I’ve overcome so much and I feel like I’m blessed. It’s going to happen when it happens. Now I just trust I will get there.” To donate, visit Darling’s Go Fund Me page: gofundme.com/silverliningsproject. If you, or someone you know, is experiencing difficulty, contact Lifeline: 13 11 14.

RETURN OF THE MIX TAPE Those who did not have the privilege of painstakingly lining up the start of musical tracks to hit record to create a mix tape for themselves or a loved one may not have any appreciation for the humble cassette tape. But one company is bringing the cassette into the digital era. Mixxtape looks like a cassette tape, and even plays like one if you have an old player lying around, but it also boasts Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, a USB port, headphone jack and the ability to shore up to 12 hours worth of music. The rapid charging feature means the Mixxtape will be ready to play MP3, WAV, WMA and AAC after one hour of charging. Mixxtape will retail for US$80 ($107) and is available on kickstarter.com with an estimated delivery of November 2017.
APP SUPERSEDES LOG BOOKS Distracted drivers have caused 115,000 accidents in Queensland in the past year but that could change with the launch of AAMI SmartPlates, a real-time driving tracker to replace the conventional learner’s logbook. The AAMI SmartPlates app, allows learner drivers to track their driving hours digitally on their smartphone, while also recording the route taken, weather, road surfaces and traffic conditions. AAMI research shows almost two-thirds of learner drivers overestimate their hours in their log book and Queenslanders were the nation’s most resistant to legal changes that would ban mobile phone use while driving. The app is available for free download now on the App Store and Google Play.
AI BEATS CHINESE GO MASTER FOR A SECOND TIME Google’s artificial intelligence software has beaten Chinese Go master Ke Jie for a second time, taking an unassailable two to nil lead in a series meant to test the limits of computers in taking on humans at complex tasks. Go is an ancient, highly complex board game that involves two contestants placing black and white stones on a grid. It is popular in Asian countries and most top-ranked players hail from China, Japan and South Korea. Ke, the 19-year-old world number one, was visibly frustrated during the game, tugging his hair and laying his head on the table during the final moments of the second match against Google’s Go-playing software AlphaGo. Following his defeat in the first match of the best-of-three series, Ke says he will not compete against AI again due to its rapid improvement. The victory over the world’s top player, which many thought would take decades to achieve, comes after the AI program from Google’s DeepMind unit bested a South Korean Go professional in a similar exhibition match in 2016. – Reuters/AAP

snow depth was 150 centimetres, putting spring skiing and boarding firmly on the agenda. Mount Buller’s $1.6-million Techno Alpin Snowfactory started up this season, completing the largest snow-making system in Australia and ensuring more skiing and boarding days each season. Snow is guaranteed on the central Bourke Street run until the closing weekend (September 30/ October 1).

BUSINESS & FINANCE
Chris Harris, Ord Minnett Buderim.
INVESTORS RELAX AS VOLATILITY DOWN
here are signs investors may be a little too relaxed about equity market valuations, with some key measures of volatility lingering not far from all-time lows, despite geopolitical tensions. Global equities as measured by the MSCI World Index have booked solid returns in the year to date even if the Australian market is lagging both the global measure and the S&P 500 Index by some margin in local currency terms. A slew of generally good economic news has helped investors maintain their relaxed state of mind. Global economic growth continues to hold up well in an environment where inflation is subdued enough that major central banks will at least consider tightening monetary policy
– either through raising interest rates or unwinding the trillions of dollars of securities purchases sitting on their balance sheets after post-GFC stimulus measures. Just how relaxed, or complacent, investors have become is illustrated in both the US and Australian markets by their respective volatility indexes, known as the VIX. The VIX measures the expectations for stock market volatility over the next 30 days via stock index option prices – a rising VIX suggests higher volatility and a greater likelihood that shares will fall, while conversely, a falling VIX implies lower volatility and is usually regarded as a positive for shares. Often the VIX is referred to as the ‘fear index’ (rising) or the ‘complacency index’ (falling). In the US in late July, the S&P 500 VIX recently hit a record low of 8.8 and also set a record-breaking run of staying below 10 for two weeks. It is very unusual to see the VIX fall below 10 and stay there for an extended period of time, but the index has been becalmed for nearly a year – it hit a 12-month high of 22.5 on 4 November 2016 before falling below 16 on 9 November 2016, and has not broken above that level since. The continued calm seems to be a product of a pick-up in US growth during the June quarter of 2017 and inflation readings being lower than expected.
Locally, the S&P/ASX 200 Index and its VIX measure show a similar story to the data, albeit with the abovementioned recent underperformance of the local benchmark versus its global and US counterparts. The RBA left the cash rate on hold at its September meeting, with its commentary having a neutral tone. The bank did signal recent appreciation in the Australia-dollarUS dollar exchange rate would likely see core inflation and growth return to target later than previously anticipated. Ord Minnett, however, does not believe that concern over the currency is enough to carry near-term monetary policy implications – i.e. a cut in interest rates. From an asset allocation perspective, we maintain an overweight position in international equities, and prefer equity exposure over fixed-income assets. However, we believe it was prudent to trim equity weightings slightly to acknowledge that investor complacency appears to have set into markets ahead of some important policy decisions.

TOURISM FIGURES UP The Sunshine Coast continues to break records. Not only has the region experienced its hottest winter on record, but it has attracted the highest ever increase in international visitors with 296,000 people visiting from June 2016 to June 2017. This is an increase of 11.6 per cent and a contribution of $249 million in visitor expenditure to the economy. The International Visitor Statistics released last week by the Tourism Research Australia show that New Zealand remains the Sunshine Coast’s largest inbound market, growing 12.2 per cent to 71,000 visitors. The region attracted 58,000 visitors from the UK up 6.7 per cent, 36,000 from Germany growing 12 per cent and 19,000 visited from the US increasing 0.2 per cent year on year. Asian arrivals totalled 21,000.

FROM THE MAYOR
Spring school holidays are almost here and I know there are many Sunshine Coast residents who are looking forward to spending some extra time with their families. It’s also a busy time for those working in our tourism industry, which remains one of the most important sectors in our regional economy and features in our Regional Economic Development Strategy as offering great potential for growth. On top of four very successful cruise ship visits, which brought around 10,000 visitors to our Coast, the most in any month since we started our cruise ship partnerships, we have received a very encouraging update on the number of international tourists coming to our region. The Tourism Research Australia figures showed we attracted our highest ever increase in international visitors with 296,000 arrivals to the year ending June 2017, up 11.6 per cent. These visitors contribute $249 million in expenditure to our economy. The increase was more than double the statewide growth and highlights the great work all of our Sunshine Coast operators and tourism bodies are doing in marketing our region.

1 As part of the Festival of Community Halls to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast, Valdora Community Hall will host a Trivia Night with a heritage theme. It’s on Friday night, September 15, from 6.30pm.
REGISTER YOUR PET Now is the time to register your furry friends. Registering your cat or dog is an important part of responsible pet ownership and helps us reunite lost pets with their owners and plan for dog friendly areas and infrastructure, such as dog off-leash parks. Significant registration fee discounts apply for owners who have had their pets de-sexed and micro-chipped with the cost just $13 or free for pensioners. There is also the option of a lifetime registration for de-sexed and micro-chipped cats that is only $78 with no annual renewal required. Registration is free for pets under six months old. New residents can transfer their cat or dog registration for free, so if you’ve recently moved to the area now is the time to contact council and register your pet. The annual registration period for cats and dogs starts on October 1 each year. For more info, visit council’s website.
BULCOCK ST SESSION The community is invited to attend an information session on Tuesday, September 19 about the next stage of the Bulcock St Streetscape. A presentation from the project team will be followed by a question and answer session. The session will run from 6pm to 7.30pm at The Events Centre Caloundra.
IMPROVING SAFETY New street lighting will be installed on Stringybark Rd to enhance the safety of the area for Sippy Downs’ growing population and USC’s rising student numbers. The project is one of many civil asset upgrade projects that will be funded through council’s $237-million Capital Works Program this financial year. Installation is expected to be completed in late October.

Todd Widdicombe shares some family-friendly jokes and cracks open a smashing new pale ale.
recently basked in the glory of my kids hearing for the first time the classic gag about the bear and the rabbit in the woods. As a refresher, there’s a bear and a rabbit in the woods and they are both going about their business, as you do early in the morning, and the bear turns to the rabbit and casually asks: “Hey little fella, do you have trouble with poo sticking to your fur?”. The rabbit smiles back and says, “No mate not at all”. So the bear wipes his butt with the rabbit. I first heard that joke in 1989 when my best mate Troy introduced me to Eddie
Murphy Delirious. I also learnt how to swear heaps good from that video. For the record, Eddie does a cracking Mr T impersonation. The bear and rabbit combo is an antique and it got me thinking of other mint animal jokes from the 20th century. Here’s the best five that have been scientifically proven to be awesome, if not just a tad naff too. A turtle is crossing the road and he’s mugged by two snails. When the cops turn up they say, “Mr turtle can you tell us what happened?” and the turtle says ,“I dunno man, it all happened so fast!”. Two fish are in a tank one turns to the other and says, “Hey Geoff, do you know how to drive this thing?”. A bear walks into a bar in Rockhampton and he says, “Hey bartender, I’ll have a rum and… Coke please”. The bartender says, “No drama cane farmer but why the big pause?” And the bear says looking at his hands, “Yeah dunno, I was just born with them”. You’re riding a horse at full speed, there’s a giraffe beside you and you’re being chased by a lion, what do you do? Get your drunk arse off the kids’ carousel.
Bloke rings the local wildlife rescue hotline. He says, “Listen, I’ve just found a suitcase in the bush containing a dingo and four pups.” The lady on the phone says, “That’s terrible, are they moving?”and the bloke says, “Well I’m not sure, but that would explain the suitcase.” Five of the best according to science but here’s an extra one for the road. What did the elephant say to the naked man? “How the hell do you breathe through that thing?”. Hopefully you can dine out on a few of the aforementioned gags with the kids before you reward your comedic self with a tasty treat from our buddies down the road in Byron. This week we quaff down the latest offering from the champions at Stone & Wood. Each year the Byron-based brewers salute a legend of the Australian beer scene, a forefather, a pioneer who has helped pave the way for today’s burgeoning beer industry. They call it the S&W Forefathers beer and this year, it’s New South Wales publican Blair Hayden. Hayds is the patriarch of one of the oldest pubs in Sydney, The Lord Nelson, and going against the tide of corporate brewing greed, he refused to be told what beers he could and
couldn’t put on his taps and subsequently built a brewery so he could pour his own ace creations for the people. Cue the independent beer revolution. The Forefathers release is Blair Hayden’s English Pale Ale. Using the finest of English malts and hops and combining with bergamot tea, they’ve created a well tasty brew fashioning a subtle floral and citrusy vibe with spicy aromas and a solid biscuity malt flavour, balanced with the perfect bitterness. I’d be keen as to try this one on tap, but for now it’s the 500ml stubby variety and it’s a welcome treat. Trust me it’s time to get all over the Forefathers like Kim Jong-un on cake. I give the S&W Blair Hayden Forefathers English Pale Ale four out of five thumbs up.

A DELIGHT FOR ALL AGES A classic children’s book is brought to life. Words: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
Mothball the wombat is coming to the Coast
ackie French has written more than 140 books that have been translated into 36 languages and have collectively received more than 60 national and international awards. But try as she might, the Araluen Valley-based author will always be the most famous for one – The Diary of a Wombat. Her collaboration with Bruce Whatley brought Mothball to life. The cheeky wombat, who finds a way to train humans to feed her, is the star of the only Australian children’s book to win every one of the country’s book industry awards and its popularity continues. For the first time, the picture book has been transformed into a theatrical masterpiece through the unrivalled talents of Monkey Baa Theatre Company Production and Mothball will make her way to the Sunshine Coast. “Wait until you see it, it’s unlike anything you will have seen before, it really is,” French says. “It is so hard to explain what they’ve done, I thought it was impossible and that it would never work, but Monkey Baa specialise in the impossible.” French says it took her three years to find a way to give a voice to Mothball the wombat in her renowned book, and Monkey Baa took a similar amount of time to work out how to bring her to life on the stage before approaching French with
g The only thoink we overlo h is the beac 34-36 Alexandra Parade Cotton Tree,

their proposal. “When I went to the first rehearsal, it was impossible not to think of Mothball as a real wombat. There is a wonderful scene where she breathes and moves and it is so realistic, she is just standing there, getting angrier and angrier because the humans fenced in the front door. “The tension is building, but she is not moving, just tensing up and her breathing is getting heavier and heavier. This is where the kids start shouting out to her and you can see every muscle getting tenser before she makes the charge.” After rehearsing for five hours, French says she found herself wanting to ask for Mothball to have a rest. Every time she is packed away in her box to travel to another performance, every member of the Monkey Baa team give her a pat before the close the lid, as if she were in fact a real wombat. “The show is absolute magic for people of all ages. I’ve seen a two-year-old stand up and completely mesmerised the whole time,” she says. “He did not move, he wasn’t going to miss a second of it. Adults also find it fascinating and it is extraordinarily innovative, hilarious, and deeply moving theatrical production.” Lake Kawana Community Centre, September 19.

SUNSHINE COAST’S FIRST SPANISH FILM FESTIVAL A MUST-SEE
DON’T MISS THE SUE BOND TRIO
The Sunshine Coast’s first ever Spanish Film Festival is set to kick off under the umbrella of the Caloundra Film Festival, October 3 to 12. The opening night gala on October 3 features a playful and provocative comedy called Kiki, Love to Love, which follows five characters who all share one thing in common: an unusual impulse they are unable to suppress. It was a massive sleeper hit at the Spanish box office in 2016 and will kick off what is sure to be a brilliant line-up of Spanish films on October 4, 5, 10 and 12. On the morning of October 10, there will be a showcase of the best work from Sunshine Coast film and television students at the Events Centre in Caloundra, with students attending from around the state and a Google hangout with an industry professional. The closing night of the Spanish and Caloundra Film Festivals respectively is The Queen of Spain starring Penelope Cruz. The Caloundra Film Festival began in 2013 with the aim of providing a platform for local, Australian and student filmmakers to show their work and has taken off in a big way. Opening night kicks off at 7pm at Big Screen Cinemas Caloundra. Be early for drinks and tapas. Tickets are $12 plus booking fee and are available at caloundrafilmfestival.com.
Guru Life features jazz on the third Saturday of each month and this month, local legend Sue Bond will perform. Bond is an award-winning jazz vocalist with career highlights including national television with Don Burrows and recording with the Queensland Theatre Company. Bond will perform an afternoon of songs from the Great American Song Book. Guru Life Restaurant and Garden Bar in Rosemount, September 16 from 3pm to 5.30pm.
TEXTILES A COMMON THREAD FOR FRIENDS A mutual love of textiles is the common thread for three long-time friends who are known as accomplished artists, practitioners and teachers. Helen McIntosh, Cathy Moon and Sybil Orr showcase their talents in a fabulous fibre exhibition, aptly called Partners in Textile, at the Butter Factory Art Centre. McIntosh will be on site to chat with visitors about her body of textile work, Iconic 2. This is a unique opportunity to gain an insight into her love of fibre, themes and her ways of working. Helen McIntosh will be at the Butter Factory Art Centre in Cooroy on September 16 from 11am until 2pm. Entry to the Partners in Textile exhibition is free.

Tex Author: Tex Perkins with Stuart Coupe Publisher: PanMacmillan Australia RRP: $34.99 Reviewer: Leigh Robshaw If you enjoy no-holds-barred rock memoirs, complete with all the crazy tales and rude words that go along with being a bona-fide rock god, then grab a beer and settle in for a wild ride with Mr Gregory ‘Tex’ Perkins, one of Australia’s most enduring and charismatic frontmen. You don’t have to be a fan of the Beasts of Bourbon or the Cruel Sea, his two best-known bands, to love this book. It begins with hilarious anecdotes about his rough working class Catholic upbringing in Brisbane’s northern suburbs, fond memories of sneaking into the Boondall Drive-in and his initial forays into the music
industry, stumbling his way through dreadful performances in his earliest punk rock bands. It gets funnier and wilder from here on in, as he heads to Sydney and quickly makes a name for himself, eventually rising to the pinnacle of winning four ARIA awards with The Cruel Sea, touring a decade-long Johnny Cash tribute show and of course his supergroup, Tex, Don and Charlie, still touring as we speak. Oh – and don’t forget Tex Perkins and his Ladyboyz, a side project of soft rock songs Perkins made to annoy his record company (complete with a hilarious infomercial on YouTube you can watch at your leisure). Perkins is funny, disarmingly honest and down-to-earth and even as he tells stories about hanging out with the Rolling Stones (who he describes as really short), Nirvana and Iggy Pop, there’s not a whiff of pretence in this entertaining, very Aussie book. You can take the boy out of Brisbane, but you can’t take Brisbane out of the boy.
SUNSHINE COAST SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA PERFORM ROMANTIC MASTERS
MYER Maroochydore, Level 1 The Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra are set to perform their Romantic Masters concert, giving audiences the chance to experience a horn concerto. Bach was one of the first composers in his Brandenburg No.1 in F to use the horn as a solo instrument along with his contemporaries Vivaldi and Corelli. Due to the technical advancement of the instrument, composers like Richard Strauss later developed the instrument’s range and power through their compositions so that it became the virtuosic instrument of today. Strauss’ Horn Concerto No.1 features in this concert and is played by Liam Horne, a rising leading exponent and superb player of the instrument’s repertoire.
The concerto is in three movements, which are played continuously, and the composition is typical of Strauss’ music at this time, being romantic in style. The program also features the Slavonic Dances by Dvorak, the Peer Gynt Suite No.1, and two of Sibelius’ cornerstones of the orchestral repertoire, his Karelia Suite and the tone poem, Finlandia. Be immersed and absorbed in the dramatic and brilliant performances of the Sunshine Coast Orchestra’s players and soloist, conducted by Adrian King. Romantic Masters is at the St Peter’s Anglican Church in Maroochydore on September 16 at 2pm. Tickets are $20 and are available at sunshinecoastsymphonyorchestra.com.

ith the advancements in mobile phone and iPads, we have never before in human history had the world at our fingertips like we do now. However, there is one major drawback of this advancement – the impact on our body and brain. While holding our mobile devices most
people have their head forward and looking down. This is an unnatural posture and is creating a common problem that health care providers are seeing more often. The people most at risk are office workers and our youth. “We are seeing 10-12-year-olds who spend hours every day on their mobile phones creating neck pain and poor postures,” says Sunshine Coast chiropractor Dr David Hendrey of Hendrey Chiropractic. “Previously we would only see these problems in people who were sitting at a desk for eight to 10 hours every day. “Now anyone who loves their phone and uses it for prolonged periods are at risk.” The common symptoms of this condition are, stiffness and soreness in the neck, shoulder restriction, arm pain and sometimes even pins and needles into the arms or hands. If you think you may be suffering, call your local chiropractor for advice and assessment.
GOT A SPLITTING HEADACHE? Anyone who has experienced a severe headache will know all too well the impact this illness can have on day-to-day life. This week marks Headache Awareness Week and, given that around 70 per cent of the population will experience a tension headache at some point in their life, it’s a health campaign that is sure to benefit many people. Hosted by Headache Australia, the event – held from September 11 to 15 – offers support to the more than five million Australians who suffer from migraines and headaches. Sufferers can seek information and advice throughout the week with seminars made available across Australia. Sunshine Coast residents will find information and support available at Coastal Headache Clinic.
TYPES OF HEADACHES There are an estimated 36 types of headaches: Chinese Restaurant Syndrome – induced by eating MSG, these headaches create pressure and tightness in the face, burning sensations and a band-like sensation around the forehead. Cluster – the term given to this rare chronic disease of attacks that occur in groups. Symptoms include excruciating, burning pain. Eyestrain – a pain and heaviness around the eyes causing undiagnosed eye issues. Migraine – Severe throbbing pain often accompanied by nausea, sensitivity to sound, light and smells. Hot-dog headache – Dilation of the blood vessels inside the skull caused by eating nitrates leads to a moderate headache. Visit headacheaustralia.org.au.

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 food. While for a long time it was thought that acne is not diet related, there is increasing evidence that there is a link
HOW TO ACHIEVE CLEAR, ACNE-FREE SKIN
cne and ongoing pimple issues can lead to insecurity and self-esteem issues, especially in young people. Acne is a common problem, up to 90 per cent of teenagers will experience it and about 10 per cent of adults will have ongoing issues. Central Dermatology Clinic’s Dr Christina Sander shares her advice on how to achieve healthy skin.
TEENAGE ACNE Just when our appearance becomes so important and we want to look our best, acne can begin to be a real problem. Some teens seem to not worry too much about acne. For most teenagers, however, this
3. START ACNE TREATMENTS EARLY ON Acne can often be prevented from flaring up by starting a routine of regularly using suitable skin care products that are non-comedogenic and anti-bacterial. Teenagers need to be reminded that regular use of those products is essential. For severe acne or a family history of severe acne, a dermatologist should be consulted. especially visible skin problem can be upsetting. If your teenager seems troubled by acne, here is how you can help:
1. TAKE ACNE SERIOUSLY Telling your teen that the pimples, blackheads, and other blemishes will eventually clear on their own may do more harm than good. Studies show that selfesteem rises when acne clears. Without treatment, acne sometimes becomes severe, potentially leaving significant scars in the affected areas.
2. HEALTHY DIET Teenagers are often attracted to unhealthy
ADULT ACNE A treatment that worked so well during our teen years can be useless — or make acne worse. If this happens, you may wonder whether those blemishes really are acne. After all, do adults get acne? They sure do. It is even possible to get acne for the first time as an adult. Reasons for adult acne can include: • Fluctuating hormone levels • Family history • Hair and skin care products • Medication side effect • Undiagnosed medical condition. If nothing clears your acne, you should see a dermatologist. Effective treatment is available.
Next time you sit down to enjoy a cup of tea, you’ll be pleased to know that you are doing your health a favour. A new review of existing research shows the humble cuppa can help prevent a number of diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes. Researchers from Edith Cowan University’s School of Medical and Health Sciences examined more than 100 studies from around the world that have looked at tea consumption. It was found that black, white and green tea can reduce the risk factors associated with Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes. The findings could offer some hope to the more than 65 million people expected to be living with Alzheimer’s disease by 2030. Meanwhile, around 5.1 million deaths worldwide were attributed to diabetes in 2013, a figure that is growing annually.

Is Your Back Getting $ 37 on Your Nerves?
KICK FATIGUE TO THE KERB
Jodi Chapman says a change of diet, more sleep and a new exercise regime will give you a boost if you’re feeling fatigued and overwhelmed.
eeling like your once manageable workload is overwhelming, and time slips through your fingers unproductively, not because you have less time, but because you haven’t the energy? Mental fatigue and feeling exhausted before the day is done is a state that sometimes creeps up over a long period of time in overwhelm, having serious consequences for your health, your mental wellbeing and your previously well-balanced lifestyle. Feeling motivated to do the things you love, yet too weak to do them comes about with long-term stress or excessive workload. Having too much to deal with physically, mentally or emotionally may begin a process of depletion, driving you into a state of fatigue that may be very difficult to pull yourself out of. Loss of appetite or sugar cravings often follows, leading to a poor diet, which
further leads to that awful place of not working toward goals, exercising or enjoying simple things, then feeling guilt, while wondering where did the old me go? The usual kickstarts to get back on track include positive mindset, a new diet, relaxation, more sleep, and forcing yourself to get out and exercise, though if you’re nutrient poor, such as low in iron, iodine, or vitamin C, caused by the original overload to your system, you’ll do it tough to maintain the new regime. You’ll be surprised how easily you can turn it around when your body gets what it needs to support your energy needs. Be your own best friend, take care of you, and be the best version of you once again.

NON DRUG HEADACHE & MIGRAINE RELIEF Headaches and migraines really can be a pain in the neck There is growing recognition of the role the neck can play in headache and migraine.

Our treatment approach • We listen to you and your headache or migraine story • We use a non drug headache & migraine treatment approach • We use a scientifically proven treatment method • No joint manipulation or high velocity manoeuvres are involved • For those who wish to know more or find out if they are likely to benefit, we offer a FREE 15 minute telephone consultation.

8 IDEAS TO GET THE KIDS ENGAGED AND ACTIVE THESE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS
It’s hard to believe we’re already at the pointy end of the year. After three terms of hard work, the kids deserve some time off and fortunately, we’re in for some beautiful weather, so make sure they get plenty of fun in the great outdoors. My Weekly Preview has compiled lots of fun stuff to help keep the whole family entertained these school holidays. From the sedate to the great, from the fun to the frivolous, get out and about this spring with your offspring.
1. CHECK OUT THE WHALES, NO MATTER WHICH SPEED YOU PREFER There’s no better way to leap into the school holidays than jumping on board Whale One. The 120-passenger double-storey, twin-hull catamaran ventures out in search of the humpback whales migrating along our beautiful coastline. Or for some adrenaline-filled fun consider the 48-passenger speed boat Wild One. This experience won’t disappoint, as you travel on a low-profile boat that is safe and very comfortable and gets you out to the whales quicker. After they leave the icy waters of Antarctica, the humpbacks migrate around 5000 kilometres on average, one of longest migratory journeys of any mammal on the planet.
42 My Weekly Preview | September 15, 2017
There are no words to explain that first breathtaking moment you see a 30-tonne whale leap out of the ocean and splash back down. The humpback whale is well known for its acrobatic abilities and playful nature, which captivates all who witness them. These curious creatures are often found in small groups called pods that journey north to warmer waters to mate and birth their young. Spectators aboard the Whale One have been incredibly lucky so far this season, seeing several newborn calves – many only days old. Many mothers and newborn calves are seen on their southern migration, so being able to see them this early in the season has been spectacular.
Having these gentle giants swim inquisitively close to the boat, rolling over and showing their bright white undersides is an encounter worth experiencing. Join the Whale One or Wild One crew for a memorable experience – seeing nature at its best. Don’t miss the magic of the migration this season. Visit whaleone.com.au.
DID YOU KNOW? Newborn humpback calves are about the length of their mother’s head. At birth, calves are about six metres long and weigh two tonnes (most cars weigh about half a tonne).

The pair proclaimed this to be the day when everyone in the world should talk like a pirate.

HALCYON RESIDENTS DIVE INTO ACTIVE LIVING
ver 50s living has never been more active on the Sunshine Coast than it is right now, and home owners at Halcyon communities are leading the charge. About 350 residents from four local Halcyon communities recently proved that life doesn’t slow down at 50 after taking part in this year’s Sunshine Coast Marathon. The Halcyon crew was out in force in a blaze of orange as the largest team among the 8000 competitors at this year’s event. It brought together home owners from Halcyon Lakeside and Halcyon Landing at Bli Bli, Halcyon Parks at Caloundra and Halcyon Glades at Caboolture. “That just about sums up life at a Halcyon community,” says Donna Osborne, the community manager at Halcyon Lakeside and Halcyon Landing. “They’re about the most energised and active group of people you could ever hope to meet and
that’s what we try to encourage through all of our communities – even if it’s just a chance to socialise with your neighbours.” The success of Halcyon’s over 50s developments is supported by a strong focus on lifestyle amenities, including the provision of state-of-the-art recreation facilities created exclusively for residents. This year, Halcyon has stepped up the pace at Halcyon Lakeside in Bli Bli with the opening of a sophisticated new recreation club, which features a spectacular raised tennis court, a health and wellness centre with fully equipped gym and circuit room, a mineral salt resort pool and sunset bar. For the active creative types, there is an arts precinct that caters for potters, messy art projects, wood working and metal work. “A great deal of thought and planning has gone into the new recreation club to ensure that it has something for all residents,” says Halcyon Lakeside project

director Chris Carley. “It even has a 31-seat Gold Class-style theatre with top-of-the-line screen and audio, electric recliners chairs and glow-in-the-dark carpet.” Personal trainer Sammy Pluck knows first-hand the benefits of active living. She has been working with Halcyon communities for more than four years running aqua aerobics and circuit training for residents, plus creating personal training plans for home owners. “It’s not about making everyone capable of running a marathon, but we have a lot of people become involved who have never exercised before,” Pluck says. “It’s really amazing to see people of that age wanting to get out and move, whether it be gym classes or walking groups. “We certainly know when to scale it back, because everyone has their own pace. It’s more about creating a welcoming
experience for everyone and really embracing the benefits. In the time I’ve been working with Halcyon it’s been really great to see so much improvement in their bodies.” Pluck, who has been a personal trainer for more than 12 years, describes the facilities at Halcyon Lakeside among the best on the Sunshine Coast for encouraging active living. “The recreation club at Halcyon Lakeside incorporates so many facilities to make active living so much easier for residents. It’s a great place to meet and get to know one another, all while getting fitter.” Halcyon Landing home owner Tricia Taylor was one of the 350 residents who took part in this year’s marathon. The former taxation officer trained once a week ahead of the event with fellow Halcyon residents for her fourth marathon. “As we grow older, we don’t have to vegetate – we can and should still be part of life,” she says.

HALCYON LAKESIDE RELEASES ULTIMATE IN LIFESTYLE LIVING
ver 50s developer Halcyon has embraced the great outdoors with the release of its latest homes at Halcyon Lakeside on the Sunshine Coast. The 231-home community comprises 35 lakefront homes, and the final 14 luxury homes have now been released. Halcyon Lakeside encourages residents to embrace an active lifestyle, and the homes in this release benefit from being the closest homes to Lakeside’s multimillion-dollar Recreation and Lifestyle Centre. Halcyon Lakeside project director Chris Carley says the lakefront homes encompass the ultimate in lifestyle living to take advantage of the desirable lifestyle in the booming coastal township. “These premium lifestyle homes situated by the lake are a two-minute stroll to the recently completed recreation club, which is the heart of the community. “These are the closest homes available to the resort-style facility, and after reaching a sell-out status in the previous three releases, we’re expecting the lakefront homes to be snapped up quickly.” The superior eight-star energy-rated homes feature ducted air-conditioning, AEG appliances, 2pac and stone kitchens and
3kW solar power systems. They also offer spacious living areas that flow to the back patio overlooking the lake. Halcyon Lakeside community manager Donna Osborne says the wildlife inhabiting the surrounding 20 hectares of forest creates a relaxed lifestyle for many residents,

KOREAN EVOLUTION Once considered a bargain buy, Hyundai has taken a step into the big leagues with its impressive new i30 hatchback, writes Peter Atkinson, AAP.
volution is a wonderful thing. But nowhere does evolution happen quite as quickly as it does at Hyundai. The uber-ambitious Korean carmaker seems to reinvent itself, and its models, almost as quickly as our federal politicians change their core beliefs. And, never more so than with the all-new version of its volumeselling i30 hatchback. While most manufacturers operate on cycles of roughly seven years between new models, Hyundai has compressed that for its
reinvented i30, the third all-new version since the car’s launch a decade ago. Hyundai has shaken off the need to look funky and modern as a point of difference in a crowded, competitive market. Instead, this i30 is far more conservative and conventional in its styling than the model it replaces. The brand has shaken off its “cheap and cheerful” persona with quantum improvements in build quality and equipment, although Hyundai’s eye for value remains. To emphasise the point, they’ve trimmed $500 off the base-model pricing of
the i30, despite a claimed $2000 worth of additional equipment being included. An eight-inch touch-screen display with satellite navigation, plus Apple Car-play and Android Auto, are standard across the range, including the $20,950 Active base model. Three engine options are offered – from an upgraded 2-litre four in the lower-spec levels; a turbo-diesel variant plus an all-new, impressive 1.6-litre turbocharged four in the upper models. Top-spec models also get a seven-speed dual-clutch auto. We tested the flagship SR Premium ($33,950) complete with turbo engine and DCT transmission and were impressed in just about every way. The i30’s ride is exemplary with balanced handling and the quiet, assured way it soaks up bumps and road imperfections. Steering is accurate and delivers great feel for the road. The engine is sharp and responsive – not surprising given its outputs of 150kW and 265Nm. The Premium adds plenty of extra kit, including leather trim, wireless phone charging, LED headlights, collision avoidance and emergency braking systems as well as cruise control, lane departure assistant and blind spot detection. Interior styling of the new i30 is classy and fairly understated. Just like the exterior styling, they’ve pared things back quite noticeably – opting for quality finishes and
materials rather than the more flashy, look-at-me styling of the previous model. The reality is that in the space of little more than a decade, the Hyundai has gone from a bargain option to now delivering standards to rival the very best of the Japanese marques – and quickly making ground on the best from Europe. And, that’s despite the fact that all of its competitors have continued to improve – markedly – over the same period of time.
HYUNDAI I30 SR PREMIUM HOW BIG? Sitting in the small hatch category it delivers interior space and cargo capacity (395L) that’s pretty close to class-leading. You’ll easily fit in four adults or, if you like, two parents plus three pre-teen kids. HOW FAST? The turbocharged 1.6litre, four-cylinder engine is amply sharp with 150 kilowatts on tap, efficiently delivered via a seven–speed dual-clutch transmission. Lowerspec models get a normally aspirated 2-litre four, and there’s also a diesel option. HOW THIRSTY? It’s average consumption of 7.5L/100km is not fabulous for a smallish machine – but pretty decent for one with this much performance. A pass mark. HOW MUCH? The all-new i30 pricing starts at just over $20-grand for the entry-level. You’ll have to dig considerably deeper for the style and comfort of the SR Premium tested here – it will set you back $33,950 plus onroads.

SUSTAINABLE HOMES RECOGNISED AT AUSTRALIAN AWARDS

WINTER A WINNER FOR AUCTIONS

Gordon Macdonald is the founder of The Auction Group.
“…a home that has been designed to take advantage of passive solar heating” recycled brick walls and recycled concrete pipe, installed as a kitchen bench feature, illustrate a considered approach to materials,” commented the judges. Built with a zero-waste philosophy and carbon positive, the home is a prime example of a comfortable and sustainable home. The home also won the award for HIA Australian GreenSmart Display Home. Queensland winners included DJG Projects for Custom Built Home with their impressive off-grid sustainable house controlled by smart automation, and Eco-Essence Homes for Spec Home with their NatHERS thermal performance rating of 8.5 stars in a home that has been designed to take advantage of passive solar heating.
INTERSTATE BUYERS SNAP UP PRESTIGIOUS YAROOMBA HOUSE AND LAND PACKAGE

he best in environmentallyresponsible housing have been recognised with the presentation of the HIA Australian GreenSmart Award seeing two winners from Queensland taking out coveted awards. HIA managing director Shane Goodwin says the award winners reach the pinnacle of sustainable building practices and are leading the industry in providing comfortable homes for their clients. “HIA GreenSmart Awards are a true showcase of builders and designers at the forefront of sustainability,” he says. “Now more than ever, consumers are looking for smarter ways to build and are increasingly seeking energy efficient homes for their comfort and long-term cost savings.” The prestigious 2017 HIA Australian GreenSmart Home was presented today to Victorian building company The Sociable Weaver. With a distinctive butterfly-shaped roof for optimal solar penetration, the home is a stunning 10-star home designed to maximise energy efficiency. “The reclaimed internal green wall,
The Sunshine Coast has yielded wonderful results over the winter months. This increased activity derived from the obvious progress in infrastructure and migration from our southern capitals. In some segments the shortage of listings has undoubtedly put pressure on prices as demand forces competition at auction. On auction day we are seeing average
crowd sizes, registered bidders and overall auction clearance on the increase, so much so the last weekend of winter we saw 10 out of 11 auctions selling under the hammer or prior to auction day. The top end properties are attracting plenty of interest with a number of homes selling in between one and two million and on Saturday we concluded a sale at auction for $3,270,000 in Noosa Waters. With spring in full flight, we are looking forward to the next market snapshot. Will the traditional increase of listings balance the demand or will it continue to remain steady? With well over 100 auction bookings out in front of The Auction Group, we are looking forward to finding out.
A Sydney couple who plan to retire on the Sunshine Coast have purchased one of the few remaining house and land packages within the Yaroomba Beach community. The $1.1-million four bedroom, 2.5 bathroom double story home is part of the Affinity Collection at the Coolum Residences Beachside Estate. Sales consultant Catherine Smith says the number of enquiries from interstate buyers has increased dramatically over the past few months. “ABS Statistics indicated that the Sunshine Coast has the second highest internal net migration rate in the country
during 2015/16 with a 6200 population increase as a direct result of migration from other Australian regions,” she says. “Interstate buyers, particularly those from Melbourne and Sydney, are cashing in on the property boom and are now looking to enjoy the Coast’s relaxed lifestyle, which also includes homes that are within their price range.” The home includes an 8-star energy rating and Smith says this will make the home much more affordable over the long term and with the last four homes about to be completed within the Affinity collection, enquiry has increased. myweeklypreview.com.au

CHARITIES TO BENEFIT FROM COMMISSION The team at The Property League is donating 20 per cent of their commissions to help organisations in need.
inston Churchill famously said: “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what
we give.” A Sunshine Coast real estate agent has taken this advice on board and is opting to adopt the mantra into her day-to-day work. Amber Fox, who has recently returned from maternity leave with her fourth child to launch The Property League, is wanting to see projects in local charities and community groups come to fruition. The answer is her Charity Cuddle campaign, which will see 20 per cent of her agency’s sales commissions donated to charity. “Professionals are often asked, ‘what is your point of difference?’,’’ she tells My Weekly Preview. “I am so fortunate to have such an amazing team with integrity and heart. “Yes, we are experienced agents who do a great job, but we also want to know we’ve made a difference well past the properties we sell. “We have a focus that sees the wider community benefit, as well as our vendors,
“Yes, we are experienced agents who do a great job, but we also want to know we’ve made a difference well past the properties we sell.”
from what we naturally do well.” The Property League team will be giving 20 per cent of their eligible sales commissions to the vendor’s choice of charity. Currently, the team is aiming to fund an elevator for the Sunshine Coast Riding for the Disabled Association’s recently built mezzanine level in their main building. The team is also fundraising to cover the cost of 150 de-sexing procedures at the Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge to help with stray and abandoned animal numbers.
The Property League also works with Coast sporting clubs, community groups, schools, day cares and not-for-profit organisations by offering a fundraising program. “Ten per cent would probably still have the desired effect, but it gives me goose bumps to think of the impact 20 per cent would have on these groups who could otherwise take a year to rise this type of money,’’ Fox says.
The Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge is set to benefit from The Property League’s program.
More details on The Property League’s fundraising programs can be found in the about section of the organisation’s website. Visit thepropertyleague.com.au. If you, or someone you know is selling your property, call 5476 3579 to discuss your options.

“Mark/Ossie is a local who knows the area and cares about its future. His approach as an agent is the same as he goes about his daily life: honest and respectful, aspects which can be lost in the real estate game. He marketed and sold a house of ours in Palm Drive, Mooloolaba and in doing so achieved the highest price result for a house ever sold in the streets entire 50 year plus history. Both seller and buyer were hugely pleased with the result”. David & Lisa Holmes - Vendors 95 Palm Dr Mooloolaba

with MWP’s man in the water
Well one thing is for sure, the weather has been amazing. Pity about the swell. I have been hearing some good reports about northern New South Wales. It might be worth a road trip. That said, there has been yet another great white encounter down south. Thankfully, there were no fatalities. I have a good friend whose job is to tag great whites and track their movements in California. They seem to have a basic pattern and they swim with a few variances. I wonder if those variances are linked to us taking too many fish out of the ocean? Anyhoo, this weekend the conditions are amazing so enjoy what you can. Enjoy your weekend.

MY MY FUN

TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
The pace picks up on Monday, when the Venus/Uranus trine revs up your energy and encourages you to add a talent to your repertoire. You could also come up with a clever idea, pamper yourself in style or patch up a disagreement with a family member.
Nebulous Neptune sucks the wind out of your sails mid-week, when you may feel lost, disappointed or confused. Don’t despair and give up Gemini! Instead, get your creative juices flowing in imaginative new directions.
ARIES (MAR 21-APR 20) Monday looks lively, when the Venus/Uranus link propels you into an exciting new world of possibilities. A partnership or friendship requires plenty of room to move though, as you pursue a personal project with extra creativity, passion and purpose.
CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)
VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
It’s a wonderful week to connect with family and friends from far and wide as you talk and type up a storm. (Take extra care on Wednesday though, especially online.) Others are expecting you to come up with clever ideas so put on your thinking cap.
Monday is the day to explore, experiment, create and innovate, so you don’t get bored. But are you living in financial fantasy land? The mid-week new moon (in practical Virgo) motivates you to shake up your attitude to money.
With the new moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars all visiting your sign this week, you’ll find brains, beauty and confidence are a winning combination. It’s also a wonderful time to boost your self-esteem with a makeover and tap into latent talents.

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
Are you ready to jump out of a relationship rut? Courtesy of Uranus, it’s the perfect time to reboot your love life. Some friendships require nurturing – while others have passed their used-by date, and need to be replaced with pals who are positive.
There’s the tendency to become obsessed about an idea (or person) as you focus with tunnel-vision. You’re putting in effort but don’t be disappointed if the results aren’t perfect. You’ll learn more from perceived ‘failures’ than successes.
Are you bored to bits with the status quo? Don’t sit still Sagittarius! This week restless Uranus activates your travel zone and gives you a jolt of exciting electrical energy. So it’s time to become the adventurous Archer you were born to be.
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
It’s a terrific time to travel, publish, study, shake up a relationship, learn something new or share an adventure. Plus keep yourself mentally sharp and physically strong. Then you can bounce back from any disappointments that come along.
Monday’s Venus/Uranus trine boosts your bohemian and tempestuous side, as you do something totally unexpected. Involving romance, relationships; friendships or fun. The mid-week New Moon lights up your lust and loot zone.
If you daydream the week away, then you’ll end up dazed and confused. Instead, try channelling your energy into joint ventures, spiritual pursuits or helping others. When it comes to a partnership, you’re keen to pursue a particular course of action.
Solve all the clues and reveal the eight-letter word spelled down the middle of the grid.

THE LAST WORD
THE WINNING TICKET
Richard O’Leary recalls a magical day at the races when he thought all was lost.
his year marked a turning point for Father’s Day with my first present selected and bought by one of my boys. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved their random knick-knacks, painted rocks, handmade key rings and the like. But this year my eldest son was right on the money. His purchase of The Big Book of Australian Racing Stories by Jim Haynes revealed a deeper understanding of his dad than I gave him credit. I’ve always loved racing, from my first trots meeting as a youngster to calling the local greyhound races when I was in my teens – I don’t really know how my son clued on because I rarely have a bet these days. So I’m reading these tales from the track and I start to think about some of the adventures I have enjoyed and endured on the punt.
There have been some reasonable wins, and many losses, but the day that sticks out most was neither – I just broke even on the day. A week after I was elected school captain I offered odds on the Melbourne Cup to my high school mates and teachers and collected $180– which was a fair bit of money in 1988, especially when you didn’t have a job. I went out to a country meeting to watch the local nags go around and see the race that stops a nation on the TV screens. As luck would have it the first and second favourite got up in the Cup – Empire Rose and Natski – not a good year to be a bookie, although I came out even, having just enough to cover my bets. But I had been given a few tips on some of the other races at Flemington and that’s when the trouble started. It wasn’t long before I was down to my last $20 with no means to pay my debts; I foresaw the
shortest captaincy in the history of the school and a couple of black eyes to boot. In for a penny in for a pound, I put my last ‘red lobster’ on a horse called Concordance at five to one, which would give me just enough to pay the winning bets. The horse jumped out last and was many lengths off the pace when the field turned for home. I prayed to God, prepared my resignation speech, and threw my ticket to the ground to join the hundreds of other discarded losers. Then I heard those three magical words: “Here comes CONCORDANCE!” She won by three, and my school career was saved. I just had to find that ticket. I did, and collected. I then walked home, unable to pay for a taxi if I wanted to pay the winners at school the next day. firstname.lastname@example.org
