FROM THE EDITOR

Sunshine Coast business EcoBling Planet Friendly Accessories creates unique pieces from upcycled materials. EcoBling works with marginalised communities all over the world to respond to environmental concerns, social issues and natural disasters to produce environmentally friendly, carbon negative and socially responsible products. We are giving one reader the chance to win this necklace, which is made from rubble sourced from Nepal’s devastating earthquake. It is a part of the organisation’s fundraising and hands-on project to rebuild Bocha’s vital community house.

T

he closest I have come to fashion design is a disastrous attempt in high school to sew a pair of pyjama shorts. Even now, all these years later, I can still see the horrified look on my teacher’s face. She ended up taking the pants and adding the final touches herself. It was then that I realised, sewing was never going to be a talent of mine. What I do have is an appreciation for fine design. Pieces that have been handcrafted – produced from the creativity and passion of an individual. There are so many gifted people throughout the world, some who call the Sunshine Coast home, and many who are yet to be discovered. This is why events such as the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival have an important role in society. This homegrown, and now celebrated, festival brings opportunity and growth to designers, artists and aspiring models. It provides a stepping stone for emerging designers, while welcoming established international identities. And, it’s held here in our own region. For more about the festival, be sure to read this week’s cover story on page 12. Also this edition, we catch up with the founder of The Color Movement – yet another event held on our home turf, which is attracting worldwide interest. Plus, we have our My health feature, property, beauty and entertainment. Happy reading!

QUICK CHAT

ON THE MOVE First job? Since leaving school I have started my own small business mowing lawns. What is your favourite book? I don’t have a favourite book but my favourite movies are the Fast & Furious series. I have the whole set and hopefully one day they may write a book about the series. What are you currently working on? I am currently attending TAFE twice a week studying my Certificate III in computer and information technology.

IMAGE: TRACY NAUGHTON

Your family includes… My dad, Greg, my mum, Leanne, and my younger sister Chloe. They have been my biggest support and advocates. Our household is complete with our small dog Bella. Outside my family I have some wonderful friends who are always there to help and support me.

Joshua Paix BIO

go-getter

Joshua Paix is a 19-year-old local who was born with cerebral palsy. He has experienced many of life’s ups and downs but has kept a positive outlook on life and hasn’t let it stop him from achieving goals. When he is not studying at TAFE he enjoys hanging out with mates, going for coffee and driving his car. The teen is also a regular competitor in the Buderim 9 Challenge, which raises money for the Cerebral Palsy League.

can’t walk long distances and so I rely on my scooter to get around. Best day of your life? I have had many great experiences in my life but the best days would have to be when I earned my driver’s licence, and met the Queensland Cowboys and watched them train in Townsville. What achievement are you most proud of? Earning my driver’s licence and completing my first 4WD track. You are happiest when? When I go on camping trips with my dad.

“The best days in my life would be when I earned my driver’s licence and met the Queensland Cowboys”

First car? My first car was a silver Mitsubishi Lancer. It was my pride and joy until I sold it for a Suzuki Jimny 4WD, which I love to drive on the beach and take camping. Favourite song? I love all the latest music on the radio, but my favourite song at the moment is Heroes by Tove Lo. Best advice you’ve been given? Don’t let anything hold you back. Just keep moving forward. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? My favourite place on the Coast is Mooloolaba because I love the sand and being close to the water. If you could change one thing on the Coast what would it be? The design of some of the footpaths because I

What frustrates you the most? When people are impatient with me because I take a bit longer to do things. How do you deal with your frustration? I am well aware of my own capabilities, so I will accept help when I know I need it.

If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? I would tell myself to get out there and enjoy life or take some cement and harden up!

Tea or coffee? My favourite is coffee, especially iced coffee. NRL of AFL? Definitely NRL – I have been a North Queensland Cowboys supporter for the past 10 years and will continue to support them in the future.

The Buderim 9 Challenge is on December 17. Participants will tackle 76 kilometres and as many of Buderim’s nine hills as they can in three hours. My Weekly Preview is a proud supporter of the event. For more visit, buderim9.com.au.

A BETTER OUTCOME FOR YAROOMBA AND THE SUNSHINE COAST The Yaroomba Beach site has a 10-year-old existing approval to build a gated estate of housing and apartments up to four storeys. This existing approval can be built today and would mean closing off public access to the site and taking away the opportunity to create a new coastal village and the first 5 Star resort in 30 years on the coast. There is a stark difference in the outcomes for the site and the revised Yaroomba Beach plan includes benefits for everyone. Creating a world-class destination for all and a positive legacy for the Sunshine Coast. Evan Aldridge, Yaroomba Beach, Project Director

COVER STORY

DRESSED TO THE NINES Fashionistas from near and far are here for the 10th anniversary of the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival, an event punching well above its weight for a regional area. But founder Jacinta Richmond says it hasn’t yet reached its full potential. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

A

“The industry could be an entirely new ballgame on the Sunshine Coast and truly rival Sydney and Melbourne” SCFF founder Jacinta Richmond, pictured right ht

s Judy Copley adds the finishing touches to a bold and beautiful red carpet gown, she can already imagine the romantic tulle floating elegantly as the model shows off her tireless hours of work, strut after strut down the catwalk. For those few minutes, hundreds of eyes will be fixated on this one dress, assessing, appraising, and imagining themselves wearing it to their next big event. These are the moments Copley can gauge the reactions to her creation, the moments she awaits with anticipation. Exhibiting in the annual Sunshine Coast International Fashion Festival is something Copley has done since she was invited by festival founder Jacinta Richmond to showcase her first ever evening wear collection in 2008. Judy Copley Couture was only two years old at the time and now, with the festival reaching it’s 10th anniversary this year, Copley has split her time between creating bespoke wedding gowns and a stunning collection of red carpet gowns with an eclectic mix of colour, detail, and texture fit for the ARIAs or the MET Ball to show on the festival runway. Copley relocated from Darwin to harness more opportunities on the Sunshine Coast and while she says the region is an amazing place to live and work, up and coming designers have to work hard to get a foothold in the industry. “While the opportunities are limited for my couture label here, I love the Coast,” she says. y “I’m sure the Coast will grow and with it, the opportunities for those involved involve in the fashion industry, which would flourish with more support. The talent is here, but being such a small relaxed style of living on the Coast and re comparison to the big cities, the in com opportunities are limited for couture oppor designers and upcoming designers.” desig Copley credits the fashion festival C with creating a world-class industry beacon that once a year shines a beac light on the immense potential for both designers and models who live and work on the Coast. “Without platforms like the festival, the skills and talents of fest these creatives would not be as the widely recognised,” she says. wid “The festival provides global awareness to our beautiful part of aw the world and highlights the th many talented fashion designers, m makeup artists, hairdressers, m photographers, models and p

many other creative people that work tirelessly behind the scenes.” It would be an understatement to say that building the festival from a fashion parade poolside at Surfair Resort, Marcoola with just 12 local labels and the uber-cool Ed Hardy, into Queensland’s only established fashion event with international recognition has been a hard road for founder Jacinta Richmond. The festival ran for the first eight years as a self-funded event before the Sunshine Coast Council came on board in 2016. This year, the festival will showcase more than 20 labels, with 70 models, hair and makeup teams supplied by the event and an army of 300 dedicated volunteers who work the back and front of house roles. Richmond says the success and longevity of the festival came down to its continued relevance and importance for the community. “The festival is a marketing tool, a chance for a designer to showcase a full collection, to show what the entire story and inspiration is about. It’s tactile as opposed to digital.” The event has been held at many locations across the Coast, including Noosa, Coolum, and Twin Waters, but Richmond says none of them fit perfectly until they found The Events Centre in Caloundra. Even as the festival is poised to offer its biggest and best line-up to date, Richmond laments the loss of innovative Sunshine Coast designers from past exhibitions and she believes a lot of it comes down to lack of ongoing support for the industry. “I believe it was thriving more a few years ago, creativity wise. We had the most incredible design talent that were offering something very different and had all the potential in the world to move forward. Only

COVER STORY two are still going,” she says. “Some were ahead of their time, some over-invested, some couldn’t see the forest for the trees and the opportunities being provided to them, some were given better employment opportunities with major design houses and moved away from the region. When genius goes unappreciated, it is hard to persevere. “The region has the potential to foster the industry and to do so in very different ways to what most may think, and not at the financial cost they may expect. We have the flexibility to do things our own way and to move forward, backward, sideways and do things no one else is doing. “After 10 years, it is disappointing to see so much talent not fostered in our own backyard. We have been lucky to have national and international talent joining us, which is great for networking and tourism, but not for our local industry on a consistent basis.” Richmond says “real” funding, whether from the government or the private sector, will allow the festival to reach its potential, and the creation of an industry incubator with high-level mentors has the potential to guide up-and-coming designers and help them to succeed. Australians spend $5 billion on fashion each year and the industry employs 220,000 people, but the Sunshine Coast has yet to tap into our local designers’ success in a collaborative and innovative way. “With the expected growth in population, we will fast become a city set in an environmental oasis. Fashion and retail are two of the biggest growth areas for the Sunshine Coast. We need to solidify the industry now, develop the talent and grow, so that we are strong in our own backyard. By supporting relentless vision, the Coast benefits,” she says. “Fashion is a hard slog but it can be very big business. With proper support and respect, the industry could be an entirely new ballgame on the Sunshine Coast and truly rival Sydney and Melbourne. We have the contacts, we have the work ethic, we have the alternative visions, we already have the

THE

event

The Sunshine Coast International Fashion Festival is on from October 20 to 21 at The Events Centre in Caloundra. Catwalk highlights include Nicola Finetti, Sunflair from Germany, NVK Daydoll from Milan, globally renowned couture designer Ali Charisma, Myer and a host of local designers. The festival also features a Trade Lounge with pop-up spaces for brands selling wholesale, an industry Q&A with renowned experts, plus the Sunshine Coast Style Awards and a chance to grab a copy of the coffee table book commemorating the 10th anniversary of the festival. Tickets are still available at sunshinecoastfashionfestival.com.

perfect natural location for a major fashion tourism destination.” Internationally renowned designer Nicola Finetti has showcased collections exclusively at the festival since 2015 and he is also one of its biggest fans. “It is a professionally run event and so relaxed. Everything runs smoothly, everyone is friendly. They make everything so easy for me and I enjoy meeting everyone. I am also a lover of the beach across the road from Rumba Resort where I stay. To go to the beach before a show is wonderful, bellissimo,” he says. “It is also very fashion forward that the

festival has models for all shapes, sizes, ages, genders and more. In 2015 down syndrome model Madeline Stuart was there. In 2016 drag queen model Jess Whoo was there. I understand that the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival has done this kind of thing with models from the beginning. Much earlier than the other industry shows.” With more than two decades in the fashion industry under his belt, Finetti says he was taken aback when Richmond sat down with himself, Assia Benmedjoub from Ragtrader Magazine and Amy Boers from Amee Boers Fashion Agency and listened as they shared their 2015 festival experience. “It was a first for all of us,” he laughs. “You can see that Jacinta has listened and taken action on our advice. She is passionate and she wants success for designers and for attendees to enjoy the festival, you can see that in the year to year change. It is more international than other shows in Australia with regards to designers. “I would like to see (the festival) become bigger, to grow. There is potential here, and the morning after the shows we have talked with Jacinta about her vision, but there is no money here. I spoke with your mayor last year and told him to give her lots of money. “The vision and the potential are there but it is not valued. The designers need more education on business and design, the event more support but without the support, there is only so much that can be achieved. It is an expensive industry and you must listen, learn, and know what you are doing. The fashion industry on the Sunshine Coast has a knowledgeable leader. Respect and listen to her and it will grow.” Richmond says the 10th year is an amazing milestone for the event. “To look back and see the brands who have gone on to great things such as Coast-based Hive Swimwear, who are now stocked all over the world, and models who learned to strut their stuff in my loungeroom who are now with agencies around the world is amazing. I am proud to say we established fashion on the Sunshine Coast on an industry (as opposed to purely retail) level,” she says.

What is Sunshine Coast style? Heather Loader from Front Covergirl Boutique, Caloundra “I’ve been in the fashion retail industry for 27 years and the Sunshine Coast style is still very casual, which is a big pity because there are some beautiful labels out there. While Sunshine Coasters dress up for an occasion, they should be doing it all the time. Fashion’s moving forward but the Coast doesn’t move forward with it. People need to dress to impress, it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. But it is also important for people to dress to their figure type – what’s on trend for you is not on trend for everybody because not everyone has the same figure. With the spring racing carnivals, items by Joseph Ribkoff are popular right now, and it’s all about strong colours with quite classical styles. It’s a bit of fashion-forward fun and people should get into it.” Debbie Greenwood from Yellow Oak, Buderim “I have run a women’s boutique in Buderim for the past three years and like all beautiful tropical coastal destinations, it’s fair to say most like a relaxed resort style. However, I have found that more and more ladies are enjoying something unique and classic. I love local labels, they understand our climate and always bring a new dynamic feel to local fashion. Colourful vibrant prints seem to be the flavour, yet you still can’t go past a gorgeous linen piece combined with a stunning statement accessory. The fashion festival is certainly an event that the local industry should be part of, it’s important as a tourist destination to be in the forefront of fashion.”

Looking For A New Mattress? Read This Shocking Admission From A Retired Bedding Franchise General Manager and Avoid Being Ripped Off

R

etired General Manager of one of Australia’s largest specialty bedding stores recently admitted even if you buy a bed on sale, the margins are still huge. In addition to marking up a mattress by around 300%, the retailer gets another 12% ‘rebate’ from the manufacturer. Mattresses that sell for $10,000 in specialty bedding and department stores are being made for as little as $1,500. Mattresses that sell for $4,000 can be made in China for less than $400. The truth is…

Uninformed Consumers Are Being Ripped Off Most local manufacturers are not helping either. They work with retailers to drive prices up and make it impossible for consumers to compare mattresses. One way they do this is by supplying each retail store with essentially the same mattress, but with different labels (brand names) and prices. On top of that, they refuse to tell you exactly what’s inside the mattress so you don’t actually know what you’re getting. And to further confuse you, they make up fancy terminology to make their components seem better.

partner disturbance. Pocket Springs are slightly more expensive than Bonnel Springs but well worth it.

• Australian manufactures supply retailers with almost identical mattresses with different labels so consumers can’t compare prices • Retailers often refuse to tell you exactly what’s inside their mattresses (partly so you can’t compare mattresses, partly because they’d be embarrassed to reveal the truth, and partly because they don’t know) • Local manufacturer Dial-A-Bed has been making mattresses for 15 years and are up-front about the components in their mattresses

Cheaper Pocket Spring mattresses either have no side supports or use a simple metal hoop at the top and bottom. The best way to give si de support is to encase the springs in a high quality density foam box. That’s what we do here at Dial A Bed.

We use high quality (i.e. high density) foam to minimise this. Pillowtop mattresses are usually single-sided (non fl ip) which effectively halves their life (although many of our mattresses are still guaranteed for 10 years).

Comfort Layers This refers to the foam / latex layers that sit on the springs. This is a major part of the mattress and makes a big difference to the comfort, longevity and cost. Not all foams are the same quality. Foam is graded by density (or weight) and softness. The higher the density (heavier) the longer the foam will last.

What’s In A Mattress?

Latex can also be used as a comfort layer. Like foam, not all latex is the same. Genuine latex is highly elastic and will last for many years. Synthetic and hybrid latex becomes brittle over time.

Pocket Springs are also imported into Australia fl attened. They are wrapped individually in cylinders of fabric and work independently of each other which minimises

• A $4,000 RRP mattress can be manufactured in China for less than $400

• You can save hundreds (sometimes thousands) everyday by getting your mattress from their factory stores

Density has nothing to do with softness. You can get high density foam (heavy foam) in soft, medium, and firm. The problem is, most retailers won’t tell you the density of the foam in each mattress (most probably don’t even know).

Bonnel Springs are made from a cylindrical coil of wire attached between guide wires and hoops on the top and bottom. These springs are tried and tested. And they are affordable. But because they are made of continuous wire, they can easily transfer movement across the bed.

• Retired GM of Bedding Franchise Admits mattress margins are ‘HUGE’ (even when they are on sale)

Side Supports Cheap Bonnel Spring mattress don’t have any side supports. More expensive ones have a single butterfly side support (looks like half a butterfly). Here at Dial A Bed we use double butterfly side supports (looks like a full butterfly) so the edge of the bed remains firm when you sit on it.

Local manufacturer, Dial-A-Bed are sick and tired of the deceit in their industry. They’ve been making mattresses in Brisbane for 15 years and sell direct-to-the-public from their 4 company-owned stores. That means you can buy at genuine wholesale prices and save the 300%mark-ups you are forced to pay at other stores. On top of that, they are totally transparent about what’s in their mattresses. And offer the following information to prevent you from being disappointed and ripped off when you buy your next mattress.

Springs Unless a mattress is made entirely of foam or latex, it will contain a core of springs. These springs are made by a handful of companies (usually in China) and imported into Australia fl attened.

IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE, READ THIS…

Memory or Gel Foam is also sometimes used as a comfort layer. Both foams have slow re-lease qualities which enable them to hug your body and relieve pressure points. But this can make them warmer to sleep on. Gel Foam is injected with a special substance to increase air circulation and keep your mattress cooler.

The top comfort layer is in the quilting. Beds with a cloudlike feel usually have a lot of polyester in the quilting. While this may be lovely at first, it will quickly flatten (within weeks). To prevent this we include foam in our quilting.

Pillowtop This is usually an extra layer/s of foam attached to one side of the mattress. While this may add to the comfort of a mattress, depending on the density of the foam, it will contour to your body over time.

• They offer free advice and ordering over the phone on 1300 132 231

Why Choose Dial A Bed Unbeatable Wholesale Prices: Overall, our standard prices are around 70% cheaper than other stores because we manufacture ourselves – right here in Brisbane. Every Mattress Is Different: Our cheaper mattresses cost less because they are more basic with Bonnel Springs, no side supports and limited foam. Our more expensive mattresses cost more because they have pocket springs, foam box side supports and include more / higher quality foam or latex. But all cost around 70% less than other retailers. Easy to Compare: We’re happy to show you what’s inside each mattress so you know exactly what you’re getting and you can compare mattresses across our range. Genuine Guarantee: While most retailers simply refer you to the manufacturer who may give you the run-around and force you to pay for freight to examine the mattress, we stand behind our products. If there is a problem, we will come to your home, inspect your mattress, and make things right straight away.

Save $800 This Week Only Equivalent mattresses sell for $1,599 and more at other stores. This week you can enjoy the many health and luxurious sleep benefits the Duchess on all Mattress provides for just $799 (a saving of at least $800). That’s right, as soon as tonight you could be enjoying the deep sleep you need to feel your best, wake with instant energy tomorrow morning, no more aches, pains or stiffness in your back, legs or shoulders, literally feeling 10 years younger.

REVIEW

MORE EATS AND TREATS FOR MOOLOOLABA WHARF The Wharf Mooloolaba revitalisation will see two more restaurants open for the festive season. The restaurants, announced by award-winning Queensland chef and restauranteur Tony Kelly, will offer Asian street food as well as a ‘Hamptons-style fish and chippery’. The restaurants are part of a $10-million refurbishment project for The Wharf precinct. Rice Boi will offer trendy urban Asian street food while Saltwater will be all about classic fish and chips, done right. These new establishments will join The Dock Mooloolaba in being completed in time for the Mooloolaba Boat Parade on December 16.

MOOLOOLABA PADDLERS RECLAIM THEIR TITLE Mooloolaba Outrigger Canoe Club’s Masters men’s crew members have reclaimed their title at the iconic Molokai Hoe. The team, which includes Mooloolaba club president Ron Grabbe, Danny Sheard, Clay Lennox, Warren Cuffe, Trevor Wendt, Craig Ebnter and Tony Harding, took out the 50-59 age division, conquering the 62-kilometre course in just over five hours and 35 minutes. Mooloolaba has won the division 16 times since the 1990s but last year, they finished second. The crew also beat their own race record, which was set in 2013.

$460 MILLION TIME TO COUGH UP FOR YOUR CAR PARK The Sunshine Coast Council has voted to bring more paid parking to our region. Details for 150 new parking meters for Mooloolaba were unveiled at last week’s council meeting, with paid parking also set to be introduced at Cotton Tree and Sippy Downs. More areas will have time restrictions added, including Happy Valley and Bulcock Beach, as well as half of the bays at Kings Beach. New parking meters that accept credit cards are also on the horizon for Bulcock Street. The plan was opposed by councillors Ted Hungerford, Jason O’Pray and Greg Rogerson. The changes will take one to five years to roll out.

Life-saving cancer medication that could save more than 900 lives a year will be in reach of leukaemia patients after its addition to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme at a cost of $460 million. Ibrutinib is also known as Imbruvica. Adding it to the PBS will slash the treatment cost from an average of $187,390 to $38.80 per script, making access easier for more than 900 patients a year. Ibrutinib is used to treat patients with chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, the most common form of leukemia, which affects about 1500 people every year.

CHANGING THE #SCRIPT FOR LOCAL EMPLOYMENT A $1 million RDA regional innovation program has been announced and is set to drive innovation, boost economic opportunities and create new jobs on the Sunshine Coast. The program is called #SCRIPT and will be driven by a nine-person committee including Elaine Jobson, Feda Adra, Mark Paddenburg, Roz White and Darrell Edwards. Coby Sullivan, formerly of Flight Centre, has been appointed the Regional Innovation Coordinator. The program is a co-funded partnership with 26 entities, including the Queensland Government, the Sunshine Coast Council, Noosa Council, Regional Development Australia Sunshine Coast and business and industry.

C’MON GET HAPPY The team that brought colour to Australia is launching a new concept, and the Sunshine Coast is to host the inaugural event. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

T

im Wiche admits that at the age of 32, he’s still a big kid. He gets a kick out of seeing thousands of people covered head to toe in psychedelic colours, having the time of their lives. And while people tell him he should be settling down, he’s more than happy being in the business of being silly and having lots of fun doing it. As a director of Aratis Events, he’s one of a team of 12 behind the The Color Run and its new spin-off, The Color Movement, which has its global debut on the Sunshine Coast on Saturday. “People call me a Peter Pan who doesn’t really want to grow up,” he says. “For five years I’ve been on stage interacting with everyone, engaging the crowd, doing giveaways, taking photos, crowd surfing. I look like a big dork up there on stage but it’s amazing to see the joy coming out of these kids’ faces.” Wiche is a high-energy, fast-talking marketing executive who started out in advertising, working for big companies like M&C Saatchi and Saatchi & Saatchi, but he never felt like it was a good fit. “I felt I was always a number and I was destined to do bigger things,” he says. “As much as I really understood what we were doing, I never really understood why we were doing it. Understanding why people need to have certain experiences in their lives is really important to me. “With The Color Run, seeing people walk off that event site and say ‘that was the best day of my life’ is such a big reward to me. “I have friendly relationships with people all over the country I’ve helped inspire to do bigger and better things. We leave there with a sense that we’ve helped people. I had a rare opportunity that’s separate from the corporate world, to follow something I was passionate about.” Six years ago, Wiche was sitting on the couch with his best mate, Luke Hannan, who is The Color Run’s general manager.

Tim Wiche wants to bring a bit of brightness into people’s lives had just returned from the United States and had seen a video for The Color Run. “He showed it to me and said ‘how amazing is this?’ I said ‘mate, you have to bring this to Australia’. Within three months we had signed the first deal. We’re both creative people, Luke had been in events and we saw an opportunity to build a brand in Australia. “It went crazy as soon as tickets went on sale,” he says. “In 2012 the first event was launched at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne and it was the first event ever to be allowed to run on the track. It was a huge success and we now run 13 events nationally.” The Color Run is now the single largest event series in the world, with 40 countries around the world taking part in what’s been dubbed the ‘happiest 5K on the planet’ – a five-kilometre run where participants run at their own pace and are splattered with colourful cornflour and foam. Wiche realised there was the potential for a spin-off event that incorporated the

same madcap fun and social interaction without the requirement to complete a five-kilometre course and developed a new concept, The Color Movement, which will make its global debut on the Sunshine Coast. While The Color Run and The Color Movement are not charity events, plenty of people take part and donate to charities of their choice after completing the day. “The Color Movement is the happiest dance floor on the planet,” he says. “Through dance and movement you can still get off the couch and be healthy. Now we’re saying you don’t have to do the five kilometres, you can still come to our event and dance like you’ve never danced before for four hours. You’ll be dancing in colour clouds and jumping through confetti tornadoes, sliming your mates and blasting your loved ones with water balloons. “There are 40 countries around the world that do The Color Run and all eyes are on us to see how we go,” Wiche says. “We have a database of 450,000 and 510,000 social media followers and when we

asked them which city we should launch The Color Movement in, the overwhelming response was South-East Queensland and the Sunshine Coast.” Wiche says 70 per cent of participants are female and that teens and young adults, followed by families, are the target market of the event. “Females are the experience chasers. “They are always out there to be fit, healthy. They’re the social media engagers and influencers, they’re early adopters and will always be the ones to share and vocalise what’s good and bad about the event.” While kids find this kind of event irresistible, Wiche says parents are sometimes a little reserved, but it doesn’t last long. “A lot of mums and dads will come in and stand at the back but by the end they’re at the front with the kids on their shoulders with tutus on, and once you see the colour and fun, the vibe is just absolutely amazing. “It’s taking people out of their daily routine. We create these beautiful, active worlds and they realise there’s lots of fun to be had outside of going to work every day and sitting in traffic.”

BLOOMHILL’S WILD RIDE

It’s time to dip into your underwear drawer and get on your bike for an annual charity event with a difference. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

he 16th annual Bras ‘n Bikes event will add some glitz to the roads on October 29, when hundreds of riders will enjoy a scenic 140-kilometre ride and raise money for local charity Bloomhill Cancer Care. The successful event, which attracted 320 riders last year, is run by Girl Torque, and while a lot of fun and frivolity is had on the day, group leader Judy Noakes says the organisers are keen to raise as much money as they can for Bloomhill. Noakes says a few Girl Torque members have reached out to the Buderim-based charity for help with either cancer diagnosis or for support when someone they love is going through a cancer battle. “My husband Chris Carroll was diagnosed with cancer and what I needed from [Bloomhill] was the emotional support and counselling,” she says. “There are so many sides to Bloomhill that people don’t realise are there. They don’t just support women, but also men who are undergoing cancer treatments, and they are also there for their friends and families and give them a place to turn to for help.” While Carroll has been cancer-free for five years, Noakes says the club’s passion for

Col Clarke and Kevin Blair from TourOz Trikes with Girl Torque group leader Judy Noakes supporting the charity has only grown over time into an “emotional and practical attachment”. With 85 members and 30 more pending, Girl Torque has been providing a social connection and a source of camaraderie for local women, and Noakes says the Bras ‘n Bikes event was one of the few occasions

when the guys could join in the fun. “We used to offer bras to the guys on the day for a $2 donation, but now they just can’t wait to shop around, put on bras and get their pink on,” Noakes laughs. “I reckon the blokes are even more excited to dress up than us girls and some of the outfits they turn up in are very

thought provoking. The stigma around guys wearing bras on the day has definitely gone and they are really keen now.” This year’s route is expected to take around two hours and will incorporate some scenic country areas, some highway, some winding roads and places Noakes says those who live outside the Sunshine Coast have probably never seen before. Participants are in with a chance to win a $2000 travel voucher from Coolum Cruise & Travel and see amazing trikes from TourOz Trikes on the route, as the Yandina business came on board as a major sponsor this year. “For the second year in a row, we will start and finish at the Yandina Bowls Club so those who aren’t riding can enjoy some barefoot bowls until we get back at lunch time,” Noakes says. Riders need to gather at the Yandina Bowls Club at 7.30am on October 29 to register, with pink bras and attire ready to go. The ride starts at 9.30am. Registration is $20 per bike and this can be pre-purchased at bloomhill.com.au/online-shop.

No Longer Happy? Is Stress, Anxiety, Depression or Insomnia affecting you? Are Anti-Depressants not working for you? Find out why Are you irritated, never excited, or constantly negative? Do you have trouble sleeping, your mind won’t stop racing, or you wake often through the night? Do you suffer anxiety at bed time, hearing your heart pounding? One single underlying issue can cause these symptoms including anxiety, nervousness, depression, or lack of excitement and motivation for life. Stress feels overwhelming, and little things cause anger. You may also notice palpitations, overheating, tingling in the hands or feet, irritable bowel syndrome, foggy brain and poor concentration including ADHD in children. Often these symptoms have occurred for months, years or even decades. You may suffer a few or all of them.

The cause has been found to affect 89% of patients and is widespread throughout the community

Easily transmittable, a very common though insidious infection picked up from travelling overseas, or having contact with someone who has travelled has been detected in the gut through specialised testing. This infection has been shown to release a neuronal toxin, affecting the nervous system physically and mentally. It has not often been associated with mental health conditions, though studies are available showing its impact on the brain. Being easily passed on, you may find more than one person in a home may be suffering with similar symptoms. Often sufferers correlate the first symptoms with a stomach bug causing diarrhoea or vomiting. Australia being so close to holiday places in countries it may be transmitted from where the water may not be treated, imagine how many people returning are infected and how it may be passed on easily through schools, day care centres, hospitals or places of work. Fortunately, it is quite simple to treat, with most symptoms relieved when infection is addressed and eradicated. It’s well documented patients suffering for many years have improved dramatically after as little as one month with some patients showing improvement after just two weeks of treatment. Bacterial infections are just one part of a 7 step process for permanently treating depression, anxiety or ADHD. These are not conditions with unknown cause like many believe, and may be resolved if the cause is targeted.

MY OPINION

JAWS FOR THOUGHT

SKY-HIGH HOPES FOR OUR COAST

Sami Muirhead’s recent trip overseas has her reflecting on our fascinating – and sometimes hazardous –nation.

Simon Latchford believes it is crucial that the region has a balanced and collaborative approach to tourism access for the future.

D

eadly spiders, snakes, stonefish and jellyfish that can all kill you. God bless our beautiful country! And I have not even mentioned the big predators, such as crocodiles and great whites, lurking in our waters. It has taken me four decades of living in our wide, brown land to realise we have a lot of deadly animals. A lot! During a recent trip to Greece (I will stop talking about it soon, I promise) I stood on a yacht in the Mediterranean Sea and as I was poised to dive in and immerse myself in the turquoise waters I turned to the skipper and asked him if there were any sharks about. I was still going swimming whatever he said, but somehow it was a normal question to spit out before I took the plunge into paradise. The gorgeous Greek skipper laughed and told me there were no sharks. I dived in and bobbed about blissfully for nearly an hour in the clear green water. It was so pure I could see my orange toenails dancing with glee beneath me. I was relaxed and in the moment I realised every time I swim in Australia I am aware of things that go bump under the inky navy water or searching for fins that cut through the rolling waves towards the horizon. It was a light bulb moment where I realised we are raised with sharks just being a part of life.

Most of us are not paranoid about it all and we take sensible precautions, like not swimming at dawn or dusk. I respect sharks but I have a healthy fear of them too. But you cannot un-see paradise and let me tell you it was pretty seductive swimming knowing old Jaws was not going to accidentally mistake me for a seal spring roll. There seem to be a lot of creepycrawlies around the Coast at the moment. Brown snakes are on the move and apparently looking for water after being forced inland after the big dry. They are breaking records for their extra-large size. Snake catchers are all reporting being busy and relocating extra-long and brazen browns. I do not know about you but if a brown snake slithered onto my back porch I would pretty much drop dead on the spot. And a researcher has urged us all to use peppermint spray to keep spiders away from our homes this summer. Apparently the arachnids are not fans of aromatherapy as the scent of peppermint sends them scurrying away. Anyway, back to my Grecian glory days. It is just as well the skipper told me there were no sharks around Santorini because the water is so clear you would see a shark in its full glory coming for you. I am pretty sure most of us would die of a heart attack before its jaws got anywhere near our skin.

T

he 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast provided a unique opportunity to both reflect on a very successful half century of tourism growth, and look forward to the next 50 years to ensure that we continue to maximise the potential benefits of tourism. Today, the Sunshine Coast is a remarkably different place than it was in 1967. On top of the traditional strengths of the agricultural and tourism industries, the Coast has added major educational, medical and technology sectors to its economy. Its population has grown from 37,000 in 1967 to 306,000 today, with 26,500 people relying on tourism for their employment. In the year ending June 2017, the Sunshine Coast and Noosa attracted more than 900,000 interstate visitors and 2.5 million intrastate domestic visitors (largely from Brisbane). Looking forward, I welcome the Bruce Highway upgrade, though it is likely to cause short-term disruption for car access. While we will continue to maintain our drive strategy and campaigns, it is now more essential than ever to create a balance and fast track our aviation marketing efforts. Over the past 12 months, Sunshine Coast Airport was one of the fastest growing airports in Australia, driving growth, particularly from Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland, but also a new market, Adelaide. In line with continuing the tourism momentum, the announcement to build a new runway and upgrade the terminal and

facilities at Sunshine Coast Airport will make it a genuinely international airport. The new era for the airport will also be driven by new private operators, with one of Australia’s largest fund managers, Palisade Investment Partners, taking responsibility for its re-development. With the ongoing issues of the Bruce Highway and the limits it places on significantly growing the drive market, particularly in the short term, it makes sense to further develop and build interstate and international markets through additional capacity at Sunshine Coast Airport. This will also assist the region to build its existing markets and opens up new source markets in the Asia-Pacific region and further afield. The Sunshine Coast can develop high-yielding leisure, conference and incentives markets, and the ability to attract larger planes will allow the agricultural sector to build on the already enviable reputation of our seafood, dairy and other produce. The promotion and growth of ‘agri-tourism’ has been reflected in our strategy of greater integration and cross promotion of the region’s key assets. The opportunities the airport expansion presents has precipitated a more focused strategic direction for our organisation. And we’re committed to operating collegiately with the airport team and sub-regions that make up the collective tourism region to build capacity now for the redevelopment completion in 2019 and beyond.

FULL STEAM AHEAD

Business leaders and government representatives have come together to discuss the region’s transport future. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

he chief executive officer of Regional Development Australia Sunshine Coast, Darrell Edwards, has hailed the recent combined government and business forum as an important step towards collaboration for a better public transport future. Almost 60 of the Sunshine Coast’s most prominent representatives from the government, tourism, transport, property development, education and business sectors converged on the Innovation Centre for the second forum of its kind to discuss the question, what kind of region do we want the Sunshine Coast to be? It was a question first posed by The Hornery Institute chief executive and managing director Kate Meyrick at the inaugural forum. Sunshine Coast Business Council chair Sandy Zubrinich says while it seems like a straightforward question, the answer is far more challenging. “This collaborative input is focused on aligning views across the various levels of government to ensure the Sunshine Coast region gets the modern infrastructure it needs to underpin a prosperous future, as opposed to just the infrastructure

Regional Development Australia Sunshine Coast CEO Darrell Edwards (inset) governments can ‘afford’,� Zubrinich says. The national director of design at Urbis, James Tuma, is a visionary urban designer with qualifications in built environments and landscape architecture, and he presented two interactive sessions at the event, bringing decades of experience

and insight to the table. Among others to take to the stage was Regional Development Australia (RDA) Sunshine Coast CEO Darrell Edwards, who says there has not been enough collaboration, particularly when it comes to transport infrastructure, in the past.

“This is why forums like [this] are so important,� he says. “The attendees were very congenial and collaborative. Everybody had a view on such an important topic and all discussions were respectful.� The RDA conducted a survey of more than 760 people to gauge residents’ thoughts on transport priorities for the region. Statistics indicate the Coast’s population will increase by more than 60 per cent to 514,000 by 2036 and that 80 per cent of the region’s workforce use private vehicles to get to and from work. Residents said they would happily use public transport and take the train to Brisbane if it was more efficient, faster and more reliable. Edwards says survey comments indicated a high level of frustration at traffic congestion and delays on the Bruce Highway, and urgency for the government to provide an upgrade as quickly as possible. “The community survey shows that we are focused in the right direction. We need to be advocating for the Bruce Highway, North Coast rail and the Mooloolah River interchange at every opportunity,� he says. “The mass transit solution for the coastal corridor is still subject to contention and

needs to be fully explored by TMR [Department of Transport and Main Roads] to come up with the right solution. I am not sure that light rail takes innovation into consideration. I am still waiting for publicly available information that shows the feasibility and viability versus other options.” Edwards says there is no telling how technological advances over the next decade will affect how people commute. “We can’t also continue to build and widen roads. We need to develop alternate solutions for mass rapid transit between the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane,” he says. “Studies are currently being concluded. This needs to be expedited so that Infrastructure Australia can support the outcome and it can be considered for funding through the $10 billion National Rail fund. I think residents have been waiting long enough for fast rail alternatives.” Edwards says while he was pleased to see continued discussions, and action, on the Bruce Highway upgrade, the Mooloolah River interchange project has been left languishing. “This infrastructure should have been delivered with the Sunshine Coast University Hospital but unfortunately it was uncoupled,” he says. “Fast access to the hospital is critical to emergency services and the health and wellbeing of residents.

“CAMCOS [the proposed rail link from Beerwah to Maroochydore] seems to be forgotten. It could be part of the Eastern corridor mass transit solution. We await TMR planning to see if it will be resurrected.” The RDA will be pursuing two more opportunities to move the forum discussion forward at the Public and Smart Transport taskforce and City Deal stakeholder group. Detailed survey results are available at rdasunshinecoast.org.au.

The RDA Sunshine Coast survey results reveal the most pressing projects to relieve congestion are: • Bruce Highway: 58.3 per cent • The North Coast rail duplication: 29.8 per cent • CAMCOS (a rail extension linking Beerwah with the coastal towns): 12.8 per cent • The Mooloolah River interchange: 5.3 per cent • Light rail (between Caloundra and Maroochydore): 4.4 per cent • An international airport: 2.4 per cent Source: RDA Sunshine Coast

MY TIME

TODD’S TALES Todd Widdicombe is deadly serious about this summer brew.

N

ow I dunno about you but I’m a big fan of pundamonium. If more people stopped to appreciate the genius of puns the world would be a much better place. In fact if we covered the globe in small spherical green vegies we might just create world peas. These are my favourite 10 puns of all time. I sent these into the World Pun Championships recently hoping at least one would win it for me but sadly no-pun-in-tendid. Yep I know right, sheer quality.

For all the ’80s music fans: I put salt and pepper in my trolley last week and now it “pushes real good”. I really wish I could stop naming Bruce Willis movies but I guess old habits Die Hard. I went to the Mr Whippy van and said, “I’d like to buy an ice cream.” He said, “Hundreds and thousands?” I said, “Well how ’bout we just start with one please.” I told my mate I gave my wife a guitar for her birthday and he said, “A Fender?” I said “No I think she liked it.” Mum is at that age where she doesn’t sugar coat things anymore. She’s diabetic. On that note my parents are weird. Mum dresses as my dad and my dad dresses as my mum. They’re trans-parent. It’s a real drag. I saw a universal remote in the shops and I said, “Hang on, this changes everything.” How’s those three wise men. “Hey let’s give Jesus some gold and frankincense for his birthday. But wait, there’s myrrh.” I hear actress Glenn Close has given up smoking. She’s Glenn Close, but no cigar. And my favourite pun of 2017: I ate far too much Middle Eastern food last night and now I falafel. Now I’m not saying you’ve just experienced champagne comedy but surely

RELAX WITH THE MAESTRO there’s at least one giggle in there? If not, wash away the bitter aftertaste with a cracking little drop from Brisbane’s Slipstream Brewing Company. Slipstream crashed onto the burgeoning Brissie craft beer scene earlier this year launching a bar/brewery and four core beers including the cracking G-Force IPA. An East Coast American-inspired IPA, the G-Force goes down quicker than a fat man on a see-saw and has changed my entire view on IPAs because as a general rule I’ve always swerved the India pale ales like Donald Trump swerves harmony. The G-Force has the bright and fruity hoppiness you expect from an IPA (born from a veritable who’s who of desirable modern hops) with a firm bitterness and a pure unfiltered thirst-quenching drinkablilty that’s perfect for our Queensland summer. In a nutshell, which happens to be a 375ml can, I give the Slipstream G-Force IPA a solid four out of five thumbs up.

SLIPSTREAM BREWING COMPANY G-FORCE IPA 375ML CAN 6.5% ABV Available at Cellarbrations Brightwater, Wises Road, Buderim and Parklands.

The man who has collaborated with Kate Ceberano, Tommy Emmanuel and James Morrison will take on a new role as the artistic director of music at the University of the Sunshine Coast from next year. To celebrate Sean O’Boyle’s appointment, an afternoon of chilled music and relaxed vibes, aptly called Unwind, will come to life this weekend. O’Boyle, who was awarded the Order of Australia in 2015, has written and produced music for more than 150 albums and says he hopes the Unwind concert will spark interest among Coast musicians. Unwind will offer a diverse range of musical talent by a handful of gifted local musicians including Adam Lopez, Becc Holdorf, Malia Stirling, Jamison Kehl and Dave Mibus, plus Suzanne Kompass, the newly appointed director of vocal arts. Unwind is on at the USC Art Gallery Courtyard on October 22 from 1pm to 4pm.

he focus on food, nutrition and health has never been as strong as it is today. Everywhere you turn there is an emphasis on healthy eating, food fads and fresh, local produce. Add to that a recent study which concluded there are now 10 times more obese children and teens in the world than there were 40 years ago, and the skyrocketing

interest and research into health, wellbeing and longevity is no surprise. The research results, which were published in medical journal The Lancet, summarised a global analysis of 200 countries. The numbers have grown in the past four decades, increasing from five million girls in 1975 to 50 million in 2016, and from six million boys to 74 million.

The Impact of Overweight and Obesity as a Risk Factor for Chronic Conditions: Australian Burden of Disease Study shows that overweight people can benefit by dropping just one body mass index point. The key is regular exercise and healthy diets, according to the experts. But getting the kids (and sometimes the big kids) to adopt healthy eating habits can be a challenge. Sometimes fussy eaters may

simply need some inspiration and excitement on their plates. With 2017 unofficially declared the year of the unicorn, food inspo is aplenty. All you have to do is take a look at Instagram or Facebook to see that the colourful food trend is taking over the world. Here are our favourite colour combos to help you entice your family to dig in to nutritious, natural meals. 1. Colourful noodles Who says everyday vegetables are boring? Turn orange and purple sweet potatoes into bowls of fun. If you prefer rice noodles, colour them naturally by cooking with red cabbage and a squeeze of lemon juice. The finished product will be a pink and purple noodle creation. Add your favourite meat, vegetables and some bone broth or stock for a nutritious and hearty meal. 2. Smoothie bowls Not only do these bowls look pretty, but they are packed with plenty of nutritional punch. Obtain the blue colour by adding blue matcha

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

Leading Neurologist Dr Joel Saper, who recently addressed the Migraine World Summit, says the neck can be a cause, a trigger or a symptom of a migraine. Coastal Headache Clinic, the Sunshine Coast’s only clinic exclusively concerned with treating people with headache and migraine conditions, uses the Watson Headache® Approach to examine in detail and treat, if indicated, the upper neck. This is done without any joint manipulation or high velocity manoeuvres. The Watson Headache® Approach is a scientifically based, non drug, safe and effective method for the treatment of migraine.

Obesity is set to get a kick in the butt with $5 million delivered to the cause in Federal Government funding. The government has also committed $38 million into cancer research as part of a broader $200 million investment into medical projects. More than $29 million is being set aside for mental health research and nearly $23 million will go towards studies into cardiovascular disease. The National Health and Medical Research Council funding will also include $8 million to be invested in diabetes research projects. The money for cancer research will have a specific focus on childhood cancers with the highest death rates. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says eliminating cancer once and for all is the goal and the funding will enable the organisation to start new clinical trials, especially into brain, bone and blood cancers. “About 1100 young people aged 15 to 25 are diagnosed with cancer each year and about 150 will die from the disease. This initiative will bring the latest medical innovations within reach of young people with cancer,” the prime minster says. “There is nothing more tragic than childhood cancer.” -AAP

Recent research has uncovered the effects of hay fever symptoms on the lives of Australians with the condition. The Facing Allergies Can End Stigma survey shows 61 per cent of respondents feel their fever makes them feel less attractive, while 43 per cent report cancelling social plans and 26 per cent have taken a sick day as a result of their hay fever. The survey results were revealed as part of the Hay Fever Help campaign, which reminds people living with hay fever that their lives don’t have to be dictated by the condition. Leading Australian interior designer Darren Palmer has dealt with his own hay fever symptoms for many years and joined

PUTTING THE SQUEEZE ON THE SNEEZE

Weekly Preview. “People affected may experience troublesome symptoms, such as nasal congestion, itchy, red or watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing, particularly during spring. It can intrude on your quality of life. “As an interior designer and renovator, I’m around a lot of dust and mould, which really sets off my hay fever. Even pollen from certain trees around my studio can trigger a runny nose or itchy, red eyes. It can be really disruptive to my schedule, particularly when I’m renovating or in the middle of filming. So encouraging other people to get a handle on the condition was a no-brainer.” Palmer says it’s important for people to recognise the symptoms and seek medical advice. “Like a lot of people, I also attempted to self-manage my symptoms when it affected me. I didn’t realise until recently that a GP would be able to help me better manage my hay fever longer term. My most important tip would actually be to get out of your home and visit your GP, because that’s really the first step towards making sure you’re prepared.” For more, visit hayfeverhelp.com.au.

A SHADY TREND Optometrists have issued a warning about the latest tiny sunglasses trend. The ’90s-inspired ‘microshades’ trend made an impact at London and Paris fashion weeks, but Australia’s peak professional body of optometrists says they aren’t the ideal style to protect the eyes from harmful UV rays. Unlike the aviators’ resurgence of 2016, this season’s ‘microshade’ or ‘Matrix’ sunglasses trend is often worn down the bridge of the nose, allowing UV rays to penetrate the eyes. “While we welcome any celebrity attention given to sunglasses, microshades appear to be worn as pure fashion accessories and not serious UV protectors,” Optometry Australia’s resident optometrist Luke Arundel says. “Our eyes are 10 times more sensitive to UV than our skin and too much exposure to UV light increases the risk of eye diseases.” Wearing close-fitting sunglasses with a wide arm or a wrap-around style, plus a broad-brimmed hat are the best ways to protect your eyes. -AAP

know? Eating a diet rich in omega-6 – typically found in seed oils, eggs and nuts – could significantly reduce a persons’ risk of developing type 2 diabetes, new research suggests. A study published in the journal The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, involving nearly 40,000 adults, found those with the higher levels of linoleic acid (omega-6) in their blood had a 35 per cent lower risk of developing diabetes compared with those with the lowest levels of omega-6.

FAST FACT

Close to 10 per cent of the Australian population accessed Medicare-subsidised mental health services in 2015-16, according to a report from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW). The report, Mental Health Services: In Brief 2017, shows that 2.3 million people (9.5 per cent of the Australian population) received Medicare-subsidised mental health services in 2015-16. This is an increase from 1.6 million (7.2 per cent of the population) in 2011-12.

PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE REFORMS GOOD FOR CONSUMERS Australians with private health insurance are being promised cheaper premiums and easier access to mental healthcare under a raft of new measures. Federal Minister for Health Greg Hunt announced the major shake-up of the system on Friday with those under 30 the biggest beneficiaries. Insurers will be able to discount hospital insurance premiums for 18- to 29-year-olds by up to 10 per cent. The discount will phase out after people turn 40. Hunt believes this will encourage young people to take up private health insurance while helping other policyholders. “The more young people you have in the system, the lower the average cost of premiums for everybody,” he says. The government will also take alternative therapies like homeopathy, reflexology and yoga off the list of items covered, while people with hospital insurance that does not offer full cover for mental health treatment will be able to upgrade their cover and access mental health services without a waiting period on a once-off basis. myweeklypreview.com.au

ROBOTIC SURGERY IS NOW ON THE SUNSHINE COAST. The da Vinci ® Xi Surgical Robot System - previously only available in Brisbane - is now conveniently available here at Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital (SCUPH). As recently seen on the ABC TV’s 7.30 program, the robot allows a range of minimally invasive surgical procedures to be conducted, giving Sunshine Coast men suffering from prostate cancer local access to the most advanced treatment available. The revolutionary new $3.5 million da Vinci Xi robot system provides the surgeon with a 3D view of the prostate, which is magnified up to ten times. This enables your surgeon to perform very complex manoeuvres with excellent vision and control.

The da Vinci System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide.

Other changes include: • Insurers will be able to offer travel and accommodation benefits for people in regional and rural areas that need to travel for treatment. • A deal has been struck with the Medical Technology Association of Australia to lower the price of implanted medical devices from February 1, 2018. • The maximum excess will be raised, allowing some policyholders to select a higher excess in exchange for a lower premium. • Products will use standard definitions to make it clear what policies is covered. • Private Health Insurance Ombudsman powers will be boosted so complaints are resolved clearly and quickly.

Operations are performed using keyhole surgery through a small incision in your lower abdomen. The robotic arms, which hold various small instruments, are inserted through these incisions. The 3D vision and smaller instruments used allow the surgeon to more precisely operate in confined areas such as 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. da Vinci surgery is a minimally invasive surgical option offering many potential benefits that may include a shorter stay in hospital, less pain and less risk of infection. Oliver Steele, Hospital CEO, is delighted that the da Vinci Xi Surgical System is now available to patients and adds to the hospital’s existing capabilities in Urological services including green light laser and ESWL (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy). “We are at the forefront of the next frontier for men’s health, right here on the Sunshine Coast,” he said. “We’re excited by this and have invested $3.5M into this new technology.” “In particular, the robot is key to expanding urological services at the hospital with urologists welcoming the availability of the technology for prostate cancer patients who previously had to travel to Brisbane for this surgery.” To find out more talk to your GP, call 07 5390 6000 or visit the website: sunshinecoastuniversityprivate.com.au

MAKING A WINNING MOVE

Ken Day & Sylvia Lewis

H

appily retired couple Ken Day and Sylvia Lewis have packed up their lives on the Gold Coast and upsized their home to enjoy Halcyon days on the Sunshine Coast, while pocketing a handy capital gain on the way. Converts to the Halcyon lifestyle, the couple sold their waterfront home in the five-star over 50s lifestyle community, Vision by Halcyon, to enjoy the state-of-the-art bowls facilities at Halcyon Lakeside on the Sunshine Coast. “We really like the Halcyon brand and the community spirit and lifestyle offering that comes with buying a home at Halcyon,” Lewis says. “We’ve met so many people and made lifelong friendships at Vision and we are so excited to do it all over again at Lakeside. “It’s the right time for us to move on. We purchased our home at Vision primarily for the boating aspect and, as time went on, we found that we weren’t using the boat very often and our lawn bowls hobby became a more enjoyable pastime.” The move to Halcyon Lakeside has come

with an added bonus for the couple, who achieved a handsome capital gain from the sale of their Vision by Halcyon home. “Moving to Lakeside worked out great for us financially and we are looking forward to settling into our new lifestyle in this vibrant community,” Day says. “We’ve now got a larger home and were also able to put some money in the bank for holidays.” The couple was drawn to Halcyon’s home ownership financial protection framework as there are no hidden costs, no exit fees, no deferred management fees, sinking funds or capital replacement fees and homeowners are free to sell their home at any time. “The fact that Halcyon’s communities don’t have an exit fee was a major drawcard for us, and we definitely wouldn’t consider living in any community without the safety of no exit fees,” Day says. “At our age, we need to make sure our investment is safe and Halcyon offers the whole package – the lifestyle aspect and the financial freedom.”

D

o you have an idea to improve the lives of people who are 65 years or older? Entries are now open for the $20,000 Seniors Living Innovation Challenge. The Challenge is part of the Seniors Living Innovation research project, an Australian-first collaboration between the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and four industry partners, including IRT Group. “QUT researchers want to hear gamechanging ideas from individuals or groups interested in making a difference to the lives of Australian seniors,” IRT Communities’ CEO Stig Andersen says. “Entrepreneurs, students, architects, urban designers, industrial designers, creative thinkers and community groups are among those invited to get involved.” Entrants are invited to submit their imaginative concepts to one of three categories: design a new community, create new products and services for the future, or

wildcard, for innovative ideas that don’t fit into category 1 or 2. Whether it’s housing, digital services, innovative products or new technologies, the challenge is looking for new thinking to enable older people to continue to engage and enjoy their lifestyle. “Think robotics, smart houses, nano and wearable technology, intentional and intergeneration communities,” Andersen says. “When you combine one of Australia’s leading technology universities with industry partners and forward-thinking consumers, the possibilities are endless.” Entrants need to submit a three- to five-minute video outlining an innovative idea by November 7.

GOLDEN BEACH HEART FOUNDATION WALKERS

T

he Golden Beach Heart Foundation walkers have been hitting the pavement each week for 15 years, tallying thousands of walks while forming strong friendships and staying healthy through their dedication and passion for getting outdoors. One of 40 Heart Foundation Walking groups, the Sunshine Coast Council helps to promote across the Coast, the Golden Beach walkers have been congratulated on their major milestone by Councillor Tim Dwyer, who often sees them out and about in his division. Heart Foundation Walking is Australia’s largest network of free community-based walking groups, with volunteer walk organisers providing an enjoyable and easy way to stay active for people of all ages and fitness levels – even four-legged friends. “These weekly walks play an important role in our community as they provide an avenue for people to catch up with a friend or meet new friends while being active at the same time,” Dwyer says. “I congratulate the Golden Beach Heart Foundation walkers for reaching their major milestone of 15 years of walking. “Some of the Golden Beach Heart Foundation members have walked more

than 1000 walks, which is an excellent achievement. “The Heart Foundation Walking program aligns perfectly with the aims of council’s Healthy Sunshine Coast fitness program and is helping our region to maintain its ranking as the healthiest region in Queensland.” Foundation members Trevor and Denise Steel of Golden Beach, say the group consists of mainly happily retired people who enjoy walking and socialising together under the umbrella of Sunshine Coast Council and the Heart Foundation. About 40 per cent of the group are single and enjoy the commitment, camaraderie and safety of walking along the beachfront Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, followed by coffee and chatter at the local cafes. They also breakfast together monthly and occasionally have a barbecue brunch at Golden Beach.

DESIGNED WITH NATURE IN MIND “Many of the homes have raked ceilings with clerestory windows looking up and out at the rainforest…”

A

t Nature’s Edge Buderim, over 50s can buy a spacious architecturally-designed home within a gated community in the Buderim foothills. The collection of homes at Nature’s Edge Buderim was specifically designed by award-winning architect Mark Hudson to optimise the natural rainforest setting. Many of the homes have raked ceilings with clerestory windows looking up and out at the rainforest backdrop, imbuing a peaceful, tranquil feel to the space. The design approach means each home

is free-flowing, with ample natural light. Expansive glass windows, large outdoor living spaces and a separate multi-purpose room means there are plenty of places to relax. New floorplans are available in stages two and three. Every new home has the structural integrity and design and energy efficiency features that have become synonymous with Nature’s Edge Buderim, each with individual elements that make them unique. At Nature’s Edge Buderim, home prices

are less than the Buderim area median. This means selling the family home and buying a new home can be quite an attractive option, especially when you see what is on offer in the multimillion-dollar leisure centre that is nearing completion, exclusively for resident use. Most importantly, there are no exit fees and every homeowner keeps all the capital gain when they decide to sell and leave.

Head where the wise boomers are going. Contact one of Nature’s Edge Buderim’s lifestyle consultants on 1800 218 898 and ask for a personalised tour.

CHRISTMAS BAZAAR Residents at the Buderim Gardens Retirement Village are throwing open the doors to host a Chistmas Bazaar in their Community Hall. A wide range of goods will be available, including delectable homemade cakes, sweets, jams, and pickles, or choose gifts from a variety of hand crafted goods including jewellery, collages, stoneware and ceramics, paintings and artwork, children’s clothes, toys and books. The Christmas Bazaar is on November 18 from 8.30am to noon at Buderim Gardens, which is opposite Headland Bowls Club, on Mooloolaba Road, Buderim.

MOTORING PREVIEW

DREAM ON Audi’s A5 coupe isn’t the most practical car on the market, but that won’t stop plenty of buyers wanting to own it, writes Peter Atkinson, AAP.

W

e dream about them, but for most of us there’s only a short period of time in our lives when cars like this one – Audi’s new A5 coupe – make any kind of sense. For a start, few singles can contemplate a car with an entry-level price of $70-grand or more. Then the idea of two doors and four seats is mostly out of the question during the parenting years. That changes when kids begin to leave home and, for a short time at least, we can fantasise about something as sleek and slinky as the German marque’s

latest glamour model. Before long, though, there’ll be grandchildren to drive around. And then, bad backs and creaky knees make a low-slung coupe more trouble than it’s worth. But here’s the bright side. If you’re fortunate enough to be in the market for one of these dream machines, there’s never been more choice. And this just-released secondgeneration A5 should be on your list. Audi’s original A5 punched above its weight during the decade it was on the market, selling more than 300,000 units worldwide – pretty good for a niche model.

Its mix of head-turning road presence, elegant, ethereal styling and assured driving dynamics were a winner. No doubt those variants will join this new coupe in the months ahead. But for now, the A5 is offered in just two petrol and one diesel coupes, boasting four cylinders. There’s also a high-performance S5 model that will replace the previous V8 engine with a turbocharged V6. We’ve already sampled that engine in the new S4 and it’s a ripper. Styling wise, the evolution of the A5 has been subtle but unmistakable. It remains a beautiful thing, and the DNA of that first-generation A5 is instantly recognisable. Audi’s chief designer Walter de Silva, who described the first A5 as the most beautiful car he had ever penned, has given this new model a distinctly more purposeful, hardedged appearance. That was inevitable, I suppose, because there was not much scope to make it more curvy than the original. It’s not just the aesthetics that have changed. This new model has undergone a substantial weight-loss program – meaning it’s up to 60 kilos lighter than its predecessor. That has helped improve performance, handling and fuel-efficiency. Standard kit includes Audi’s Drive Select system to adjust engine and steering response plus handling stiffness; while LED headlights and tail lights are also standard. Inside, the A5 reflects Audi’s dazzling

ISUZU D-MAX

technical array, Finishes and build quality meet Audi’s typically relentless standards. The compromises necessary in all coupes still exist in the A5, although they’ve been mitigated to a degree. For example, it boasts the largest boot in this segment at 465 litres. Interior space has grown incrementally (by about 17 millimetre) and the extra knee and shoulder room are welcome in the front. The rear sculpted seats, while reasonably accessible, are not a place a large person would want to spend too much time. For grandkids, though, it’s probably acceptable. Which is just as well. This is a car you won’t want to give up in a hurry.

AUDI A5 COUPE HOW BIG? Based on the architecture of its A4 sedan sibling, the A5 is a compact coupe with impressive boot space and plenty of space for front-seat passengers. HOW FAST? The model tested here will scamper to 100km/h in 5.6 seconds, which is quite brisk. Quattro all-wheel-drive means it handles brilliantly in all road conditions. For the faint-hearted there’s a less powerful variant, or a frugal turbo-diesel. HOW THIRSTY? Fuel efficiency is more than acceptable at 6.5L/100km. Carbon emissions average 149 gm/km. HOW MUCH? The high-output version will set you back $81,500 plus onroads. The range starts at a tick under $70-grand.

COAST HOMEOWNERS ON SOLID GROUND Good news for homeowners on the Sunshine Coast – a new report shows you’re likely to make a profit when you sell. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

he Sunshine Coast is among the markets that have experienced a decline in the proportion of resales at a loss over recent years, according to the recently released CoreLogic Pain & Gain Report. The report looks at the residential properties resold over a quarter and compares the most recent sale price to the previous one to determine if the property

46 My Weekly Preview | October 20, 2017

46.indd 1

sold for a gross profit or gross loss. Continued growing demand for property in coastal and lifestyle areas like the Sunshine Coast has meant the region is planted firmly in the Gain category, with only 7.2 per cent of Coast property resales over the June 2017 quarter being recorded at a loss. When this is compared to the 26.5 per cent of gross loss resales in Bunbury, Western Australia, and 26.1 per cent in Cairns, CoreLogic analysist Cameron Kusher says it is easy to see “the resurgent confidence in coastal and lifestyle markets which has emerged over the past few years.” “It is also reflective of reinvestment from Sydney and Melbourne homeowners that have accrued substantial equity in their properties.” The proportion of homes resold at a loss fell across most of these regions over the past quarter, the exceptions were Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Bunbury, and Cairns. The report shows the houses sold at a loss over the June 2017 quarter had a median hold period of 6.4 years compared to a median of 9.4 years for those that had sold for a profit. For units, those sold at a loss had

typically been held for 6.9 years and those sold for a profit had been held for 7.8 years. It also shows that owner-occupiers made the biggest gains, with 92.3 per cent of sales at a profit, compared to 88.1 per cent of resales by investors. “For owner-occupiers, the results show the benefits of selling in a buoyant market,” he says. “In a falling market, owner-occupiers may be more prepared to sell at a loss if they

“Owner-occupiers made the biggest gains, with 92.3 per cent of sales at a profit…” are purchasing their next home at an equivalent or greater discount. Because of taxation rules, investors may be more prepared to incur a loss because they, unlike owner-occupiers, can offset those loses against future capital gains. “Should home values fall in the future,

investors, which have been increasingly active in the housing market, may be more inclined to sell at a loss and offset those losses which in turn could result in much more supply becoming available for purchase at a time in which demand for housing falls because values are declining.” Over the June 2017 quarter, combined resales amounted to $18.2 billion in gross profits, with the median profit sitting at $195,000. While gross losses had a little less impact, totalling $469.6 million with the median loss recorded at $35,000. Overall, the report shows 89.56 per cent of dwellings resold for more than their purchase price, a 0.3 per cent increase on the previous quarter. “Regional area resales also enjoyed a win. For the combined regional markets, 90 per cent of owner-occupiers and 83.7 per cent of investors resold their properties for a profit over the June 2017 quarter,” Kusher says. “A greater proportion of owneroccupiers continued to resell at a profit over investors. However, the same extreme differences between the vendor types as seen across some of the capital cities was not seen in regional markets.”

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Damn! Was bummed to see Julian knocked out in the second round last week. Ouch! He really needs to be in the finals at Portugal next week to have any chance of contention. Either way, it is going to be an exciting last two events. Stating the obvious, we’ve had horrible conditions with onshore winds and the forecast is it will continue moving into the weekend. Sneaky word out is Noosa has been uncrowded… said no one ever. This is when you need Kelly Slater’s wave pool. Will be interesting to see if they can scale up the size to eight foot. OK peeps enjoy the onshore.

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)

It’s time to replace confrontation with cooperation! The more you focus on the needs of loved ones, the happier everyone will be. And the more proactive you’ll be about finding win-win solutions to partnership problems.

Be proactive about finding a fitness routine that keeps you motivated and choose healthy food options that you actually enjoy eating! Attached Taurus – are you stuck in a relationship rut? The sun and Jupiter urge you to communicate with your partner.

This week you’re in the mood for entertainment! But some forethought and planning are required. There’s just no substitute for thorough research and paying close attention to details as perceptive Pluto helps you think deeply.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)

LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23)

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)

The planetary patterns promise a period of nurturing old friendships and establishing new ones. With Venus and Mars visiting your domestic zone, strive to be more proactive and diplomatic about a current family problem.

It’s one of your luckiest weeks of the year as Jupiter (planet of prosperity) links up with the Sun (your power planet). Domestic matters and relationships with family members should improve, as Jupiter blesses all things to do with your home life.

The sun, Mercury and Jupiter encourage creative communication, as you expand your influence (especially via social media). Being confident is paramount, as you go after what you want with plenty of passion and pizazz.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

Your Libran passion for fashion and romance are both magnified at the moment, as Venus and Mars move through your sign. So it’s a wonderful week to attend a fashion show; buy a new outfit; have a rendezvous with your partner; or fall in love.

This week prosperity planet Jupiter joins up with the Sun in your sign. So sarcasm and sulking are out, and buoyant joie de vivre is in! There’s much to look forward to as you attract good luck, acknowledge a success or celebrate a milestone.

Sagittarians to the rescue! The generous sun/Jupiter conjunction increases your enthusiasm for assisting those who are sick or in need. You’ll find the more you lend a hand to others, the better you’ll feel and the more friends you’ll make.

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

When it comes to work matters, Mars and Venus encourage you to balance being proactive and productive with being calm and co-operative. It’s also a good time to apply for a job or promotion, redecorate your work space or fall for a colleague.

A professional opportunity is heading your way but you must grab it or it will pass you by. Confidence is the key. Be inspired by birthday great, singer Katy Perry “If you’re presenting yourself with confidence, you can pull off pretty much anything.”

The sun and Jupiter activate your adventure zone. Many Pisceans are keen to travel, and the best time to take a holiday is between now and December 2. So start planning, booking and packing ASAP. Coupled Pisces – love and lust are in the air.

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

THE LAST WORD

SMALL MERCIES Richard O’Leary and his son experience a bit of instant karma.

I

blame Captain Underpants. For anyone who doesn’t have children under the age of 10, Captain Underpants is a successful series of kids’ books (a Hollywood blockbuster has just been released) which follow the adventures of George and Harold – who love nothing more than getting up to mischief. One of their regular pranks is to rearrange the letters on the school message boards so “People – Please wear your socks on the gym floor” becomes “Please go pee-pee on your socks for warmth”. Toilet humour at its best, or worst, and pretty harmless stuff, or so we thought, until the correspondence arrived from the caretaker. Now I should mention we have just moved apartments, and everything has gone reasonably well. The biggest dramas have been the bond clean, which has been exhausting, and the loss of an important

piece of my eldest son’s prized pirate Lego ship, which had left him heartbroken. So really as smooth as a move can be. Then we found the letter under the door. Our new caretaker detailed how our nine-yearold had been caught on CCTV scraping off part of a sticker on the gym door, and included a few threats which fell just short of banishment to Elba. To be fair to my eldest child, he scratched out the word “No” in front of “Smoking”, which I think is a little bit funny, when you consider it is the entry to the fitness studio. My wife was not as amused, and my punishment for seeing the lighter side of my son’s transgression, was to put me in charge of sorting the situation.

I asked my son what he thought would be a good way to make it right. He suggested a letter of apology, paying for the damage, and saying sorry to the caretaker face to face. The next morning my son had so many butterflies in his stomach he couldn’t put pen to paper, so we decided to go down and apologise in person. As luck would have it, we met the caretaker in the lift. I don’t know who was more nervous, my nineyear-old or the middle-aged custodian of the complex. He of many tough words in the written form looked stricken as he watched my son squirm. “I think that’s punishment enough,” he said. But we went to the office to finish the mea culpa. When we got there, my son said sorry for what he had done, and offered to pay for the damage. The caretaker commended him on his bravery and asked him not to do it again. That was that. But as we went to leave, the caretaker picked something up from his desk, and walked over to us. “I found this in the lift the day you moved in”. He placed in my son’s hand the missing piece of Lego. olearylastword@gmail.com
