FROM THE EDITOR

O

ur lives are touched by so many people on a daily basis and yet we hurry about our business – school drop off, work, grocery shopping – often without a second thought about those we have come in contact with. What we often forget is that we all have a story to tell, advice to offer, lessons to teach and inspiration to impart. It’s important to learn from each other. The team here at MWP is lucky to meet so many interesting people on a regular basis and share their stories for our 80,000 readers to enjoy. This week I have been inspired by three women in particular. The first is Sunshine Coast mother and author Rhonda Jansen who survived a domestic violence situation and is now sharing her education and awareness message with the community. The second is world tennis champion, Jelena Dokic who first came to our attention as a 16-year-old athlete. Little did the world know, she was suffering at the violent hand of her father. Now, Jelena has released her tell-all book, Unbreakable, sharing her struggles and her strength. She spoke with deputy editor Leigh Robshaw about fighting for her freedom. And thirdly is Caloundra 32-year-old Jessica Townsend, who features on the cover of this week’s edition. Jessica has been hailed as the next J.K. Rowling – no small feat. From a Kawana classroom to London and beyond, Jess is sharing her new novel, Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow, with the world. I hope you feel as inspired by these stories as I do. Happy reading.

hinterland – Montville, via Maleny to grab some cheese or an ice-cream at Colin James.

First job? Washing dishes at a local golf club.

If you could change one thing on the Coast what would it be? We must be more forward thinking. We have so many people moving here weekly on top of the usual swell of the holiday times. Infrastructure must happen, public transport must improve.

The Wharf Mooloolaba with two restaurants – Rice Boi, which will offer epic Asian street food, and Saltwater, a Hamptons-inspired fish cafe dedicated to providing the best fish and chips on the Coast. Your family includes… The love of my life Melisa, kids Michael, Aidan, Connor and Amelia, and our dog Jessie. Do you have a nickname? TK. First car? 1966 HR Holden. Favourite book?

BIO As well as a restaurateur and entrepreneur, Tony Kelly lists passionate family man on his CV. His career as a chef has allowed him to travel, from the Disney cruise ships in the Caribbean, to Paris, London, Singapore and New York. Of his professional achievements, opening new restaurants for the Sunshine Coast to enjoy are among his favourites. He says locals are always so supportive of what he does.

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? Most recently I can reflect on the day I sold out to my business partners of Junk. I now know everything I have done in my career has led me to this point right now.

“I now know everything I have done in my career has led me to this point right now”

How long have you lived on the Sunshine Coast? On and off all my life.

Tony Kelly

Best day in your life? There isn’t just one. My life is made up of simple moments. The ones spent with the people I love that count the most.

Why do you live here? I’ve always had a strong connection here. I was born here. What keeps me here after all this time is the fact I can live on acreage and be 10 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes from the hinterland. I can be in Brisbane within the hour. We are just so lucky to have this kind of diversity at our fingertips. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Home. I am very fortunate to live where I do and it is my escape from the crazy, fast world I live in day to day. I love nothing more than to be hanging out at home with a brand-new Gourmet Traveller in one hand, coffee in the other and kids outside playing. That’s epic. (It also rarely happens like that!) Where do you take visitors when they come to the Coast? The beach over at Mooloolaba, then up to the

Your greatest regret? I never, ever live in regret.

What achievement are you most proud of? I’m super proud of the opportunities my wife and I are providing our kids. They go to a great school, play good sports and have amazing friends.

You are happiest when? When I’m laser focussed and busy. What frustrates you the most? Procrastination. How do you deal with your frustrations? I try to come from a place of understanding. If you could tell your 18 year-old self anything what would it be? Travel is the best education you can get, so pack a bag! What is your preference, tea or coffee and how do you have it? Coffee – flat white, one sugar. NRL or AFL and who do you follow? Both. Brisbane Broncos and Essendon. But really, go the Wallabies!

COVER STORY

MEET THE WORLD’S NEXT LITERARY STAR

Caloundra author Jessica Townsend is being hailed as the new J.K. Rowling, with her children’s book inspiring bidding wars and children queueing up around the world to meet the creator of Morrigan Crow, a new Harry Potter for today’s generation. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

J

essica Townsend’s high school English teacher always knew there was something special about her. Charmaine Rye, who taught her at Kawana State High School, says she was an “English teacher’s dream”. “I introduced the class to the American poet Robert Frost and I remember Jess coming to me after class and saying how much she loved his words and imagery,” says Ms Rye. “Her writing piece in response to that task was just amazing. She was able to analyse literature at a level far beyond her years. I used to say she was a 30-year-old trapped in a teenager’s body. “She was always very eloquent and had a unique turn of phrase. She was a natural talent, but she was humble about her talents. I tried to make her see she was very talented and gifted with writing.” Now living in Melbourne, Ms Rye watched with tears of pride as her former student addressed the crowd at a book signing for Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow, which is being hailed as the biggest thing in Australian publishing in more than a decade. It debuted at number eight on Nielsen BookScan’s Australian bestsellers chart, Jessica Townsend making it the biggest debut children’s book in the Australian market since records began. Eight major publishing houses fought for the English-language rights, with the Hachette Book Group signing off on a three-book deal for the US, Britain and Australia for a six-figure sum. After a bidding war at the Frankfurt Book Fair last year, the foreign rights were snapped up by publishers in 27 countries. Simultaneously, the film rights were being hotly pursued, with 20th Century Fox signing on to make the book into what will no doubt be a blockbuster. With the second book finished and seven more already plotted in her head, the 32-year-old Sunshine Coast local is being called the next J.K. Rowling, an accolade she finds flattering but disconcerting. “As a Harry Potter fan I’ve been wondering if something is going to show up that would make me feel the way I felt when I read Harry Potter,” Ms Townsend says. “I think the comparisons are coming from a place of sweet optimism but we’re all deluding ourselves – there is no next Harry Potter. This is its own thing. But I’m very much influenced by Harry Potter, I

don’t shy away from that. I did grow up with those books.” Ms Rye doesn’t hesitate to place her in the upper echelons of the publishing world, alongside J.K. Rowling: “I texted my friend after I read it and said, you’ve got to read this book, it’s going to be our childrens’ generation’s Harry Potter. It’s just incredible. I thought she executed the characters so beautifully. In the first two pages I could see Nevermoor and the characters. She painted it so beautifully with her language and I’m not exaggerating. I think it’s phenomenal and I’m so proud of her.” Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow is a children’s fantasy novel that tells the story of Morrigan Crow, a flawed and unappreciated child born on the unlucky day of Eventide who is fated to die at midnight on her 11th birthday. When a mysterious stranger called Jupiter North shows up and whisks her away to a magical city called Nevermoor, she finds herself competing in four dangerous trials against hundreds of other children each boasting an extraordinary talent. However, Morrigan sees herself as talentless. Ms Townsend says she wasn’t trying to moralise as she wrote the book; she just wanted to write a really good, fun story that would entertain her and make her laugh, but it does contain positive messages for young readers. “Obviously when you’re writing, themes do emerge,” she says. “All of my values are there on the page. Morrigan is competing against other children with talents and she doesn’t have a talent. In the end, Morrigan figures out talent was never the most important thing. The trials she goes through are testing for more important qualities. Basically, the whole point of it is if you’re not honest, brave and tenacious, it really doesn’t matter how talented you are.” Aimed at nine to 12-year-olds, the book is receiving stellar reviews across the globe and children and their parents are queueing up from Sydney to San Francisco to have their books signed on her promotional tour. “I had this really sweet nine-year-old girl show up with her mum to the Children’s Festival of Moving Stories [in Sydney] and she had read the book five times in the week it came out. It’s really exciting. It has been a crazy whirlwind of a time, but I’m happy.” Raised in the Caloundra suburb of Aroona, Ms Townsend was one of those kids who always had her head stuck in a book. Caloundra Library published her first story in

COVER STORY

Charmaine Rye and daughter Quincy

its weekly newsletter when she was seven and she still remembers the thrill. “I loved growing up on the Sunshine Coast, it’s such a gorgeous place to raise a family,” she says. “When I was much younger I was in the Nippers at Dicky Beach. You’d laugh now because I’m the pastiest person, but I loved that when I was little. I feel like growing up on the Sunshine Coast, it still has this laidback attitude, which I really appreciate in my adulthood. It’s the most chilled, laidback place in the world.” Now living between her family home in Aroona and the UK, she hasn’t decided whether to buy a house and live permanently on the Coast or live an itinerant lifestyle, but she likes the idea of living six months in the UK and six months at home with her mum Tina, who raised her and her four older siblings as a single parent. “My mum is awesome, she’s a brilliant mum,” Ms Townsend says. “I don’t know anyone who could have raised us and not lost their sanity. She’s 100 per cent proud and couldn’t be happier for me.” While close to all her siblings, it was her sister Sally, two years her senior, who introduced her to reading. “Sally taught me to read when I was four,” she says. “I was always stealing her books. My first gateway drug was The Baby-Sitters Club and I love Alina Marchetta – Looking for Alibrandi was a formative book for me as a

teenager. I love John Marsden – I grew up reading the Tomorrow When the War Began series. The seeds [of Nevermoor] were planted throughout my childhood with everything I read and watched and loved.” Ms Townsend went to Caloundra State Primary School followed by Kawana State High School (now Kawana Waters State College). It’s there she met Charmaine Rye, who she acknowledges in the book as one of her most influential teachers. “She was my favourite teacher,” says Ms Townsend. “She was so encouraging to me as a budding teenage writer. Her feedback on my assignments was like the treasure of my childhood. She’d write really sweet, encourage notes on my writing assignments and she made me feel like a writer so many years before I ever wrote for a living.” After school, Ms Townsend worked at Australia Zoo in the gift shop before Terri Irwin noticed her talents and promoted her to editor of Crikey! Magazine. She then moved to London to work as a copywriter and it was there she began to work seriously on the book after years of plotting. “I remember where I was when I came up with Morrigan Crow,” she says. “I was 18 or 19 and at a music conference and I was bored with the keynote speaker. I was sorting out a story about a girl who was going to visit her aunt, who was quite eccentric and audacious, peculiar and magical. Morrigan came to me

as a grown-up character and I dialled it back and imagined what had happened to her as a child to make her so brave and peculiar. “I was plotting out ideas when I went to London. Nevermoor is a fictional London, a magical London. I feel like I did a lot of the plotting of that world during the first two years that I lived there. I took my time, let it gestate, developed layers.” Ms Townsend started seriously writing the book in 2011 and sent it off to 11 literary agents in 2015. Her first response was a rejection, but it didn’t take long for the floodgates to open. “I was confident I had written the best book I could write,” she says. “I’m a bit of a perfectionist and I hate using that word because it sounds a bit smug. Perfection doesn’t exist, perfection is kind of crippling in a way. That’s why I held onto it so long. “Within a few days I had an offer of representation and within a month I had four offers. I was checking my emails every five minutes but I was pretty Zen; I firmly believed things happen in the right time and for the right reason. When I did choose my agent from the four, I went purely from gut instinct. “I genuinely hadn’t considered the movie thing. I hit a feeling of shock and awe and I haven’t really bounced back from that yet. It

probably sounds a bit disingenuous – having a movie made about your book is every writer’s dream, but I was genuinely a bit terrified. Everything was happening so quickly. I spoke to the people from Fox and I was thinking, someone is trying to snatch my baby away from me. It was this weird animal instinct.” When asked whether she sees herself on the red carpet at the Academy Awards some time in the future, she laughs: “I’m an introvert, I would probably stay home and watch it on TV.” As Ms Townsend thinks back over the 10 years she spent working on the book, she is coming to terms with the responsibility of having legions of fans around the world waiting for the next instalment. “The books are slated for release every 12 months. This could be the next 15 to 20 years of my life – I’m not sure I’ve thought this through,” she jokes. “But really, it’s my fondest hope. I think I would have been slightly insane to think it would have ended up as big and crazy as it has. I honestly never doubted I would at some stage have a book published, but the way it has blown up is far and beyond anything I could have imagined.”

The event was sold out in two weeks with the 117 lucky attendees enjoying a stylish fashion parade on the deck hosted by Sedgwick’s Boutique Buderim before enjoying a relaxing sit-down meal.

Guests enjoyed a great day

Storms were kept at bay and after watching the big race on the big screens, guests were reluctant to leave the waterfront location and enjoyed Flemington Flirtinis overlooking the ocean entrance late into the afternoon.

TWO COAST LIFESAVERS RECEIVE NATIONAL AWARDS The 2017 Australian Lifeguard of the Year and the 2017 Australian DHL Lifesaver of the Year can both be found patrolling our beaches. Max Pettigrove, who works for the Sunshine Coast Lifeguard Service patrolling at Sunshine Beach, was named the Lifeguard of the Year at the national awards ceremony held for 300 surf lifesavers in Sydney. Scott Summers, the Lifesaver of the Year, has been the Sunshine Beach Surf Club captain for three years. Noosa Heads Surf Life Saving Club member Robert Lemon also won an Individual Certificate of Merit.

PARKLET CREATES NEW ATMOSPHERE FOR NAMBOUR Inspired by similar initiatives in San Francisco, the Nambour Parklet project, commissioned by Sunshine Coast Council and Nambour Alliance as part of the Nambour Activation Plan, has been officially opened. TAFE Queensland Certificate I in Construction students partnered with Nambour Alliance to build the parklet, which is designed to convert part of Bury Street, near the intersection with Currie Street, into a vibrant community space. Division 10 Councillor Greg Rogerson says Nambour is the ideal location for “activations such as the Nambour Parklet, which is designed to be relocated around the various streets of Nambour offering inviting seating for people to sit, relax and enjoy the surrounds.”

UNDER 10 MILLION FIRST INTERNATIONAL ACT SECURED FOR STADIUM The Sunshine Coast Stadium has secured its first international musical act, with Neil Diamond set to perform at the venue during his 50th Anniversary Tour next year. Mr Diamond has sold more than 130 million albums worldwide and has charted 37 Top 40 singles and 16 Top 10 albums, with hits like Song Sung Blue, Sweet Caroline and Shilo among the classics. Mayor Mark Jamieson says he hopes Mr Diamond’s visit will be the first of many international artists to come. Tickets to the concert, which will be held on March 22, go on sale on November 16. Visit ticketek.com.au.

Sunshine Coast Airport’s tremendous success over the past year has seen it named the Asia-Pacific Small Airport of the Year in the CAPA Asia Pacific Aviation Awards for Excellence, announced at a ceremony held in Singapore. The Sunshine Coast Airport was recognised in the category for airports with fewer than 10 million passengers for performance and strong industry leadership. The award was accepted by Sunshine Coast Airport general manager Peter Pallot, who says less than 12 months ago, the airport hit the one million passenger mark in a year for the first time in its history. “And now we have been recognised as the best in a category with airports up to 10 times our size,” he says.

NEW ERA FOR CALOUNDRA HEALTH SERVICE Work has begun on the $17-million redevelopment of the Caloundra Health Service. Badge Constructions Pty Ltd Construction Manager Kent Belcher joined Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service (SCHHS) Acting Chief Executive Scott Lisle and CHS Nursing Director/Facility Manager, Dave Johnson, in turning the first sod last week. Mr Lisle says the project will take 12 months to complete and will deliver improvements including expanded palliative care and ophthalmology areas, and refurbishments to the diabetes, outpatient and minor illness and injuries clinics. The redevelopment is expected to be completed by late 2018.

THE FUTURE OF YAROOMBA

The Yaroomba Beach development continues to divide. So, what’s the latest? WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

he debate over the Yaroomba Beach development has once again flared up, as the council is inviting members of the public to have a say on the development applications. The $900 million development is proposed by Japanese company Sekisui House. The proposal includes the 220-room Westin Coolum Resort & Spa, apartments and other dwellings, shops, restaurants, public parks and lifesaving amenities. Yaroomba Beach project director Evan Aldridge says the development “meets the current and future needs of the Sunshine Coast in a world-class coastal village setting”. “It provides jobs for future generations so they can live locally, train locally and work locally,’’ he says. “There is an existing 10-yearold approval for the site we can build. But we wanted to do better and create a coastal village, much-needed tourism investment with a five-star resort, diversity of accommodation with a park, shops, and greater public access to the beach.” The proposal has received the backing of the Sunshine Coast Business Council with chair Sandy Zubrinich citing substantial economic benefits for the region and the delivery of much-needed, high-end tourist

18 My Weekly Preview | November 17, 2017

accommodation as essential for the region. “With The Westin Coolum Resort & Spa set to include conference facilities and play host to numerous events, we can expect an additional 90,000 new visitor nights in the region each year, generating significant spend across the retail and hospitality sectors in particular,” Ms Zubrinich says. Ms Zubrinich adds that the project will provide a boost to the region’s economy and create 440 construction jobs per year during the construction phase. “On a longer-term basis, we’re likely to see 360 permanent jobs become available, with positions covering everything from management and administration, right through to landscaping, guest services and maintenance.” However, a collective of community groups who represent more than 6000 community members, including the Sunshine Coast Environment Council (SCEC), Coolum & North Shore Coast Care, Development Watch, Friends of Yaroomba, Save Yaroomba, Coolum Residents Association and OSCAR, have spoken out against the development. SCEC spokesperson Narelle McCarthy says outstanding tourism opportunities, not high-density residential development, are the

ARTIST IMPRESSION

Sunshine Coast Business Council chair Sandy Zubrinich (inset) supports the plans focus of the state and council interest. “This unique and highly significant site should be solely dedicated to a world-class, low-rise ecotourism resort, not squandered on what is essentially an intensive residential estate,” she says. “The benefits of an eco-luxe destination for the region would be lost if the site is dominated by inappropriate residential development of 1000 dwellings for around 2000 people as currently proposed by Sekisui House.” The community groups are also concerned about the impact on wildlife, particularly sea turtles. Coolum & North Shore Coast Care president Leigh Warneminde says

Yaroomba is an important site for the endangered loggerhead turtle. “Turtles need dark beaches to nest, and the artificial light produced from 1000 dwellings and a seven-storey hotel poses a huge risk,” she says. Mr Aldridge says lighting design will be managed to prevent this issue. Save Yaroomba spokesperson Julie Failor urges the public to have their say. “This could be our last chance to have a say so it’s a critical time to speak up,” she says.

Submissions can be sent to mail@ sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au. Public notification closes on December 7.

MY OPINION

WHAT WE SPEND ON EATING OUT

MAKING FRIENDS WITH YOUR FITBIT

Sami Muirhead is trying to be healthy, but says there’s nothing like some good takeaway and red wine after a hard day.

Richard O’Leary has taken to lying to his Fitbit when it asks him questions he’d rather not answer.

L

et’s talk about one of my favourite things (other than kids, sleep, chocolate, shopping and wine) – food. Grab some sourdough and smash some avo on it while you pull up your chair with a cup of lemongrass tea as we discuss what people are eating and how much they are spending on filling their bellies. Kimchi, kombucha and chia seeds have become quite mainstream trendy words and ways of living. Remember when a plate of nachos was fancy in the ‘90s? If you ordered sour cream with the corn chips you were pretty much an international travelling woman of mystery and class. Flashback to 20 years ago and I thought I was a bit of big business when I ordered a latte and a coffee flavoured biscotti at The Coffee Club. Yep. Ten years ago we discovered eating anything that was ‘deconstructed’ made it sound cool and raw balls and $10 super juices became the new black. It is not only hipsters who have realised you cannot live on whiskey and cigarettes alone. The latter sure does sound like a good country and western song, however. Our little family has made the move to try to eat less french fries and pasta and other delicious carbs and instead tuck into more green vegetables and more protein. And there is a new superfood that is now legal in Australia after the government sanctioned the sale of hemp seeds. So now

you can have hemp seeds mixed in your salad or smoothie. There is a lot of hype it will be wonderful for people with nut allergies as it is high in protein. I tend to start the week strong after a bit of time shopping and prepping and cooking on a weekend to feed our army for the week. Usually by mid week the wheels have fallen off and by Friday night we indulge in takeaway. A new survey shows there are a whopping 86,000 options across the country when it comes to eating out and sharing in the $45-billion pie we spend each year on takeaway. Every 24 hours we consume over three kilograms of food on average and we spend on average $100 dollars a week on eating out. On average, we grab takeaway two to three times per week. Most of us are embracing healthy eating, with Japanese takeaway scoring the highest spike in popularity. Sometimes after a bad day, when all I can think about is butter chicken, red wine and trash TV and my husband magically reads my mind and rings to ask if we want papadums with our takeaway, without me even suggesting Indian, I know I have found the love of my life. It is those moments where I know I married my true soul mate as we tuck into our naan bread and rich curry and the world is totally Zen. There is always tomorrow for chia seeds and herbal tea.

I

’ve succumbed to a wireless-enabled wearable technology device that measures the number of steps you take and how many hours you sleep. To be fair I was due. The last time I fell for a fad I ended up peeling off the coloured stickers so I could solve that annoying cube, which was all the rage in the ‘80s (a bit like that expression). Now I don’t usually talk about brand names, but I’m not going to keep referring to it as the wireless-enabled wearable technology device, and this is not the ABC, so it’s a Fitbit Charge 2. I know, why don’t they just call it the step-sleep-tracker? It’s like the names you see on body wash these days – Nest Moss and Mint Body, Sugar Crush Fresh and Foamy, and Molten Brown Suma Ginseng Shower Gel. In my rare moments of serenity and solitude, I fantasise about becoming the bloke who names body wash bottles. Fluffy Hazelwood Hotdog. Clingy Pancake Slurp. Peach Fuzz Fling. But I digress… when you get the Fitbit Charge 2 you take it out of its immaculate box, strap it on to your wrist and then you sit down to be interrogated. How old are you? How tall are you? When was the last time you had sex? Okay, I lied about the sex question, but the glorified Pulsar P1 (the first digital watch for those who didn’t fall for that

craze in the ‘70s) did enquire about my weight. Actually enquire is the wrong word – it demanded to know how many kilograms I carry around with me each day. Now as a bloke who has a bit of a beer belly (despite not drinking beer – a fact that never fails to frustrate the hell out of me), I was reluctant to reveal that sort of information so early in the relationship. To be honest, I didn’t know so I guessed, which does raise a couple of

“It demanded to know how many kilograms I carry around with me each day” questions about the accuracy of these facts and figures being thrown at me – steps taken, kilometres walked, and calories burned. But it does have one lovely feature. If I sit still for too long it sends me a message to get up and start walking about, which towards the end of yet another meeting can provide the perfect excuse to wrap it up. And that at the very least has to be good for my mental health.

Richard O’Leary is a journalist, a political adviser and a father who knows there’s a deeper meaning to life, but struggles to find it.

PROFILE

“HAPPINESS WAS A CONCEPT THAT SEEMED SO FAR AWAY” Former tennis champion Jelena Dokic speaks to My Weekly Preview about the shocking revelations in her new autobiography. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

I

t was no secret that prodigious tennis champion Jelena Dokic’s relationship with her father and coach Damir was a tumultuous one. His public abuse of Ms Dokic, not to mention match officials, was on display for all to see during her much publicised tennis career. But few knew the extent of the physical and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of her father. In her new autobiography, Unbreakable, she reveals what really went on behind closed doors, including almost daily beatings, to the point of passing out, whippings that left her entire back bruised, insults like ‘whore’ and ‘slut’ and abandoning her to sleep in the player’s lounge at Wimbledon. “It took a lot of energy and many years to try and get my life together,” she tells My Weekly Preview. “It has been a very freeing and liberating experience writing about it. “I had a very difficult situation to deal with, serious issues that were not your everyday problems,” she says. “To play in such a competitive sport and compete for 10 months of the year while dealing with off-the-court problems, I really struggled to do both. There was so much pressure.” Born in Croatia, Ms Dokic emigrated to Australia as a refugee with her family in 1994 at the age of 11 and experienced poverty and racism growing up in the Sydney suburb of Fairfield. Her extraordinary tennis abilities soon saw her touring the world, but her father only became more violent. Her career peaked when she made the Wimbledon quarter finals in 1999 at the age of 16 and the semi finals in 2000. She represented Australia in the Sydney Olympics in 2000, went on to win her first WTA singles title at the Rome Masters in 2001

and reached the quarter finals in the French Open in 2002. At just 19, Ms Dokic was world number four, holding her own against Monica Seles, Martina Hingis and Lindsay Davenport, and was Australia’s great tennis hope. But at the insistence of her father, she renounced Australia to play for Serbia in 2000, a decision she says is one of her greatest regrets and which outraged a legion of Australian fans. “This is something I cover quite extensively in the book,” she says. “He made the decision. I was 17 at the time and I thought it was a disgraceful decision and something I never wanted. If there’s one thing I could go back and change in my career, this is the one. The biggest mistake. It’s something I would never have done on my own and that’s why I came back a few years later.

Could Depression, Anxiety or Fear be caused by a Genetic Disorder affecting 40% of Australians? Is your family at risk? For those suffering with anxiety, shyness, or fear, high stress levels, anger, poor memory and depression, sometimes it can be a lifelong struggle. Preferring small groups over large social groups, poor dream recall, susceptibility to allergies, fatigue, or poor sugar metabolism, can all be symptoms of a genetic disorder, which is on the rise. Affecting up to 40% of Australians, it often leads to more serious risks such as development of addictions, alcoholism, severe depression, or psychiatric disorders. Pyroluria is a genetic inability to absorb key nutrients necessary for production of brain chemicals for mood, digestion, hormone production, and to fight infections. A cascade effect toward ill health eventually develops creating emotional stress and inflammation, often leading to food sensitivities, and allowing bacterial infections to invade.

Dokic returned to Australia in 2005 and made a comeback in 2009, before injury ended her career in 2013. Today, she lives in Melbourne with her long-time Croatian-born partner Tin Bikic, working as a sports commentator, motivational speaker and mentor to young tennis players. She has let go of trying to make peace with her father. “I tried to reconcile a couple of times over the years but I found it difficult to have any normal communication or relationship with him. I don’t think we can find common ground, he’s a difficult person. Would I like to have had a normal situation and normal family unit? Yes, absolutely, but it didn’t happen. It’s sad and bothered me for a lot of years. But you get to an age where you have to accept things for what they are and you have to move on. There are other things in life.” Ms Dokic is now living a happy, normal life and starting a family is high on the agenda. “Family is the thing I will be focusing on the most and something that’s very important to me to try and do right,” she says. “That’s what I’ll be doing in the next couple of years. “Happiness was a concept that seemed so far away, but I’ve worked on that for quite a few years and battled to get there. I think I’ve gotten there in the end.”

Jelena Dokic will discuss her book at Maroochy RSL on November 30, 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Unbreakable by Jelena Dokic and Jessica Halloran is out now. Visit library.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au/Whats-On and click on ‘author events’.

The right fit makes all the difference

“A gradual decline into depression or anxiety and ill health eventually develops” Fatigue, weight gain, fluid retention, hormone imbalance, depression and anxiety, are typical symptoms of food sensitivity, creating a secondary layer of mood effects. Without these very important nutrients, the immune system becomes compromised, causing chronic infections, some known for creating further symptoms of depression and anxiety. The collateral damage can be vast, creating a decline into ill health and a depressive state seemingly unsolvable. Pyroluria is simple to treat, with a rapid response time, though most people go undiagnosed. Sufferers respond poorly to common anti-depressants, knowing that this condition affects you or your family is very important, and can be diagnosed with pathology testing. Treating Pyroluria allows the body to repair to then successfully address stress hormones, bacterial infections, and food sensitivities, bringing your health back to its optimum state allowing you a bright healthy future, free of the symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Candice Swanepoel’s beauty bag

TIPS TO MANAGE YOUR HAIR IN HUMID WEATHER • Finish your shower by allowing cool or cold water to run over your hair, as it smooths the scales of your hair cuticle. • Keep hair well moisturised as this will build a barrier to seal out humidity. Try a hair mask like L’Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Mask, which helps reconstitute the hair fibre, $40 from L’Occitane en Provence at Sunshine Plaza. • Style hair with an anti-humidity product like Bumble and Bumble’s Curl Anti-Humidity Gel Oil, $49 from Mecca Maxima, Sunshine Plaza. • Buy a satin pillowcase – cotton absorbs hair’s natural oils and causes frizz while you hair will simply slide across a satin pillowcase.

Victoria’s Secret model and Max Factor ambassador Candice Swanepoel doesn’t wake up looking like this, believe it or not. To achieve her signature beachy waves she rubs a little coconut oil through her hair while it’s wet, then ties it in a twisted bun to let it dry naturally. Her makeup musts include a lip pencil, lip tint nt and an highlighter on her cheekbones. Here re are some of her favourite products:

HI-TECH GLASSES GIVE SIGHT TO VISION IMPAIRED In a national first, South Australian charity, The Royal Society for the Blind (RSB) became the first organisation to bring breakthrough eyewear technology to Australia, giving many visually impaired people the opportunity to see clearly for the first time. Developed in Canada, the third generation of eSight electronic ‘smart’ glasses have clinically validated and patented engineering that allows the visually impaired to use eyewear to see in the same manner that sighted people do. For those living with low vision, eSight glasses can offer a dramatically improved quality of life. RSB’s Adaptive Technology Manager Andrew Davies says while the device cannot assist those who are totally blind, more than 85 per cent of those who are legally blind have some usable vision that can be enhanced by eSight’s glasses. eSight is now available for purchase in Australia through RSB for $13,000. Find out more at rsb.org.au.

NISSAN TAKES SELF-DRIVING CARS TO NEXT LEVEL Nissan has demonstrated a prototype of its most advanced autonomous driving technology, planned for real-world use from 2020, on public roads in Tokyo. Nissan Motor Corp. tested the next-generation ProPILOT technology on a modified INFINITI Q50 sports sedan late last month. The technology enables the vehicle to operate autonomously on urban roads and freeways, beginning when the driver selects a destination using the navigation system, until arrival. The prototype’s artificial intelligence uses input from 12 sonars, 12 cameras, nine millimetre-wave radars, six laser scanners and a high-definition map to analyse complex scenarios in real time and navigate smoothly through challenging city conditions – such as crossing busy intersections. The result is a human-like driving feel that gives passengers peace of mind.

LATEST PODCASTS

THE NERDIST The Nerdist will tell you what it’s like to be a nerd with the help of a bunch of famous nerds. Think Drew Carey, Kevin Smith, William Dafoe, Andy Samberg, Bill Maher, Donald Glover, and Rob Zombie. Guests join host Chris Hardwick (of Talking Dead) and don’t worry, it’s actually more funny than over-the-top nerdy. Mr Hardwick brings his two “nerdy friends” Jonah Ray and Matt Mira along for the ride and chat with someone who is “usually more famous” than the three of them combined. “I hope you like it, but if you don’t I’m sure you will not hesitate to unfurl your rage in the ‘reviews’ section because that’s how the internet works.” Listen to The Nerdist at nerdist.com/podcasts.

WHAT’S ON

THREE’S COMPANY

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17

The Waifs are coming to Caloundra. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

E

verything about The Waifs has been organic, from the creation of the band itself all the way through to the recording of their 25th anniversary album. The trio, Josh Cunningham and sisters Vikki Thorn and Donna Simpson, formed in a small pub in Broome, Western Australia. While Mr Cunningham was with his band, Ms Thorn and Ms Simpson were singing their way through an unplanned journey around the country. But once they met and jammed for the first time, it didn’t take much for Mr Cunningham to wind things up with the band and swap the Greyhound Bus for the girls’ HiAce van. Their third studio album Up All Night catapulted the folk rock band into the spotlight and now they are touring their eighth, Ironbark, which was released earlier this year. Mr Cunningham tells My Weekly Preview the band toured extensively earlier this year with shows in major cities and had planned to wrap things up with that. But they wanted to continue into the second half of the year and a regional tour was pulled together. Speaking from the verandah of his country retreat on the New South Wales

$

south coast, Mr Cunningham says he has been reflecting on the magic that unfolded inside his living room exactly one month ago, when his bandmates came over to create Ironbark. “Recording in my house was a totally different thing. Normally we are in a studio and it’s all very professional,” he says. “We didn’t communicate too much beforehand; we all just literally arrived and everyone played what they had to each other. Some were full songs, some halffinished, and we just sat around playing and recording the whole process. Some we recorded a few more times and others we captured the first time. It’s very raw, very organic and very live. I think we have captured the sound of what the band is.” Mr Cunningham says it felt liberating and “more natural” to be removed from the “clinical” environment of a studio. Now, he is excited to be connecting with fans in the regional areas they don’t often get to. “Touring is harder these days. Everyone’s got families and kids, so we travel in condensed periods and for not as long. “Gone are the days where we jumped in the van and took off for a year,” he says. “We used to literally live in the same campervan, and if we could afford a hotel room, we’d all be crammed in the same room. That’s why we are so tight-knit and close.” Mr Cunningham says he felt successful long before the band’s success was being measured in terms of album sales and concert ticket sales. “I felt successful to be doing something I felt was constructive and positive and having people resonate with it,” he says. “If we are able to just continue doing what we do, personally I’d be very happy with that. I left school to study economics, took a year to travel and play music, met the girls and here we are 25 years later. I couldn’t have asked for a better existence.” The Waifs will be at The Events Centre, on November 29 at 8pm. Tickets are $59.

Born in 2009 from a dream to bring a new and unique sound to the Brisbane masses, Cheap Fakes have since sculpted an ever-growing fan base from their extensive touring and ever-evolving discography. Never keen to languish in the still waters of comfort, Cheap Fakes have pushed out and taken chances on all three of their major releases and in 2018 they will release their fourth studio album, with its first two singles, Touch n Go and Sisters, already making waves. The Brisbane pop-infused, brassfuelled funk/ska band treat playing live as a completely different beast to recording and have been a long-shining light on the live scene. Singer Hayden Andrews says they will perform a lot of new material on their Sisters single tour. “It’s refreshing and exciting for us and there is a lot of diversity and genre hopping but still within the realms of keeping the audience dancing and entertained,” he says. “Sisters was written about those people who claim to be all ‘spiritual and blessed’, those fortunate people who live a healthy lifestyles, won’t put chemicals in their bodies but then will smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol. A social commentary. An observation. A bit of a dig.” The Cheap Fakes will be at the Imperial Hotel in Eumundi on November 18.

CHOICES FOR UN-RETIRING BOOMERS

I

n the creative style typical of their generation, baby boomers are now reinventing retirement, with many creating micro-businesses that provide work-life balance. Demographer Bernard Salt calls them ‘boomer-preneurs’ – baby boomers who are choosing to take on business and work opportunities that let them be their own boss, while still pursuing their dream lifestyles. Statistics also show there is a great divide in income levels among those aged 50 to 65, which is primarily because boomers didn’t have compulsory superannuation until 1992. Rather than retire altogether, highincome boomers might choose to scale down by working part-time or starting a new business. Lower-income boomers are finding themselves in a different circumstance and many believe they will have to work longer.

GOOD NEWS FOR ALL While they might be working longer, the good news for baby boomers is that housing options are becoming increasingly attractive and affordable. At lifestyle communities like Nature’s Edge Buderim, over 50s can buy a spacious architecturally designed home in the Buderim foothills for less than the area’s media house price – and keep some cash for retirement. Those on a pension can access rental assistance to cover certain costs of living at Nature’s Edge Buderim. Better still, when a resident decides to

T leave, they can sell their home, keep all the capital gain and pay zero exit fees. A multimillion-dollar leisure centre is nearing completion, giving residents access to facilities like an indoor/outdoor swimming pool, bowling green, tennis court, auditorium, cinema, library and commercial kitchen.

he ACCC is warning the community to watch out for online scams. The online sphere – email, the internet, social media and mobile apps – has overtaken telephones as scammers’ preferred tool of the trade to contact potential victims. In 2017, the ACCC’s Scamwatch site has received more than 51,000 reports of scammers trying to con people online. Online scam losses total nearly $37 million so far in 2017. “It’s difficult to spot a scammer online these days as they go to great lengths to trick the public and steal personal information and money,” says ACCC deputy chairman Delia Rickard says.

THE TOP THREE ONLINE SCAMS: • Phishing – often delivered via email, scammers will pretend to be from well-known businesses and government departments to con unsuspecting victims out of their personal information and money. For example, they may offer you

a gift voucher to a major supermarket for completing a ‘survey’. • False billing – scammers will pretend to be from a utility provider such as your phone or energy company and send you a fake bill. • Buying and selling – scammers will trick people who are looking to buy or sell goods online. For example, they may set up a fake online store that sells well-known brands at seemingly too-good-to-be-true prices. “While scammers are often after your money, they’re also trying to steal your personal information, which is just as valuable. It’s important to safeguard your personal details online the same way you would your wallet,” Ms Rickard says. “If you’re ever contacted out of the blue, particularly via email, by someone asking you to pay a bill, complete a survey or update your passwords, it pays to be sceptical.”

POSITIVE CHANGE AND THE IMPORTANCE OF CONNECTING WITH OTHERS A key risk factor for stress, anxiety and depression is social isolation. If you feel socially isolated the solution might be volunteering, which keeps you in regular contact with others who are committed to making their community a better place live. Volunteering is one of the best ways to make new friends, it strengthens ties to the community and broadens support networks. For those who have a hard time meeting new people, volunteering can provide a healthy boost to your self-esteem and life satisfaction. Studies have found that people who

volunteer have a lower mortality rate and show fewer symptoms of chronic pain or heart disease. The better you feel about yourself, the more likely you are to have a positive view of your life and future goals. If you don’t want to do it alone, volunteering as a team has many worthwhile benefits. Giving back to the community together will strengthen connections through shared experiences. If you are considering a career change, volunteering can help you get the experience and or training required in the field of your choice. You can practice important skills used in the workplace, such as teamwork,

problem solving, project planning, task management and organisation. You may feel more comfortable stretching your wings at work once you’ve honed these new found skills in a volunteer position. Volunteering helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills. Volunteering Sunshine Coast has more than 140 non-for-profit organisations and members are constantly seeking people for a variety of volunteer positions right across the Sunshine Coast. Find out more by calling Volunteering Sunshine Coast on 5443 8256, 0410 437 977 or 0410 437 237.

SCULPTING A NEW LIFESTYLE

alcyon Lakeside homeowner Jeanette Burke is eager to get her hands dirty at the new pottery room in the over 50s community at Bli Bli. Ms Burke, who put her passion for moulding clay on the back-burner while raising her family, is now assisting Halcyon as it prepares to open the doors to the pottery and arts room at the community’s resort-style recreation club. “I’ve always been a keen potter but I lost some time for it when I was raising my children,” Ms Burke says. “Now I’m back seriously working with pottery I can’t wait to utilise the equipment right on my doorstep.” The crafty retiree has the skill set required to create a wide range of artworks. “I enjoy all facets of clay building, sculptor work and wheel throwing – from small through to large pieces,” she says. “It’s a joy giving them as gifts to family, selling at the local markets for someone else to treasure or just displayed in the garden”. Ms Burke has qualifications in ceramics, and is keen to pass on her skills to fellow Halcyon homeowners.

“Shortly we will be starting a four-week workshop program, which will be a stepping stone into pottery for many Halcyon residents,” she says. “We have already received over 20 expressions of interest and preparation is in the pipeline to give lessons as soon as the room is up and running.” Another two experienced potters – Jan Hammond and Peter Scott – have recently joined the community Mr Scott will also be taking classes with Ms Hammond assisting. “This promises to be a great community activity, particularly helping those who don’t know much about the process,” Ms Burke says. “The Halcyon Lakeside recreation club pottery room will have three pottery wheels along with a state-of-the-art slab roller, tools and of course our brand-new electric kiln.” Ms Burke, who formerly lived at Buderim, has embraced the Halcyon Lakeside lifestyle since moving in earlier this year. “The lifestyle and facilities on offer are wonderful, and so are the friendships you make within the community,” she says.

BITTER PILLS Our nation’s dependence on antibiotics could have dire consequences.

T

he misuse of antibiotics is under scrutiny with a Sunshine Coast physician challenging the growing dependency on the medication. Associate professor Jennifer Broom, who is an infectious diseases physician, believes the world is facing the “very real” possibility of a post-antibiotic era. Dr Bloom, who is based at Sunshine Coast

University Hospital, received a $50,000 Wishlist grant to undertake a collaborative research project, which now involves the University of New South Wales. She says the misuse of antibiotics in Australian is leading to bacterial resistance. “Attempts to influence doctors’ use of antibiotics have seen limited success internationally, yet few studies have

HEARING LOSS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED At EARS we are pioneers of the latest hearing technology. We are currently offering free of charge trials of the Phonak Lyric hearing aid. As the only hearing practice on the Sunshine Coast accredited and experienced in fitting this revolutionary product, we are now looking for volunteers with a hearing loss to come and try this breakthrough completely invisible, natural sounding technology with us.

explored the reasons why antibiotics are over-prescribed,’’ she says. The research program involved interviews with 200 doctors, nurses, managers and pharmacists in the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service and four other hospitals in Queensland and New South Wales. “We found that doctors over-prescribe antibiotics out of concern for the immediate patient outcome, and long-term antimicrobial resistance is not really considered in their decision-making,” Dr Broom says. “Diagnosis can be difficult – for example, differentiating the flu from bacterial infections, which leads to over-prescribing just in case a bacterial infection is present.” Australia has one of the highest rates of antibiotic use in the developed world. According to the World Health Organization, around 29 million prescriptions are issued every year. Dr Broom’s study has now been published in multiple journals and presented at national and international meetings and is forming the basis of antibiotic prescribing innovations at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital. “The more antibiotics are used the more chance bacteria have to become resistant to them, and this is increasing in Australia and worldwide. If we don’t stop overusing antibiotics, common infections will become untreatable,’’ she says. “Worldwide, there has been a significant increase in resistant

organisms. This means bacterial infections that were once easily cured with antibiotics are becoming harder to treat.” Her findings come as Choosing Wisely Australia, an organisation facilitated by NPS MedicineWise, also says antibiotic resistance is on the rise. Choosing Wisely Australia has released 14 recommendations around antibiotic use, developed by 10 Australian specialist medical colleges and societies. “There’s many things people can do to prevent antibiotic resistance, including only taking antibiotics when they’re needed,’ says NPS MedicineWise CEO Dr Lynn Weekes.

FAST facts • Antibiotic resistance occurs when bacteria change to protect themselves from an antibiotic. • Antibiotics are not helpful in viral infections. • Bacteria are getting increasingly resistant and the more antibiotics we use the higher the pressure is for bacteria to become resistant. • Vaccination can protect against some bacterial and viral infections, reducing the use of antibiotics in our society. • Antibiotics result in resistant organisms in your gut. • The World Health Organization has called antibiotic resistance one of the greatest threats to public health today. It can affect anyone, of any age, in any country.

THINK GREEN Getting more greens into your diet could cut your risk of heart disease and stroke by as much as 40 per cent, according to new research from Edith Cowan University. Researchers from ECU’s School of Medical and Health Sciences studied the diets of more than 1000 West Australian women, focusing on nitrate intake derived from vegetables. They found that over a 15-year period, those women who had the highest intake of nitrate from vegetables had up to a 40 per cent lower risk of dying from heart disease or stroke. PhD student Lauren Blekkenhorst says the research is built on her previous study

that collated data from around the world on the measured nitrate concentration in commonly eaten vegetables. Nitrate is a compound that is naturally present in the environment and is essential for plant growth. “We found that leafy green vegetables, such as spinach, lettuce and kale, had the highest amounts of nitrate, followed by radish, beetroot and celery,” she says. “People get roughly 80 per cent of their average nitrate intake from vegetables, so they are the primary source.” Ms Blekkenhorst says 75 grams, which is one serve, per day of green leafy vegetables will provide enough nitrate to achieve these health benefits. “This is about one cup of raw vegetables, which shouldn’t be too hard for all of us to eat daily.” Lead researcher Catherine Bondonno says the bacteria living in our mouths is critical for the cardiovascular health benefits observed. “The bacteria living on our tongue break down the nitrate that we eat into another compound called nitrite. Nitrite and other breakdown products play a key role in regulating our blood pressure,” says Dr Bondonno. “This is the underlying mechanism that is resulting in the long-term improvements in heart health.”

CONTRACEPTION COULD LOWER CANCER RISK

Using an intrauterine device (IUD) for contraception could lower a woman’s risk of cervical cancer, a new study has found. A research review of 17 studies analysed the cervical cancer rates of more than 12,000 women around the world. The results of the meta analysis, published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology, showed women fitted with an IUD were 36 per cent less likely to be diagnosed with cervical cancer compared with those who had not. “Invasive cervical cancer may be approximately one third less frequent in women who have used an IUD,” the authors concluded. The authors did note that all the studies

reviewed were conducted before the introduction of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in many developed countries, including Australia. It’s estimated the human papillomavirus is responsible for 70 per cent of all cervical cancers. Despite this, the authors say the IUD could be another tool used to further reduce rates of the disease. “This possible non-contraceptive benefit could be most beneficial in populations with severely limited access to screening and concomitantly high cervical cancer incidence,” the authors wrote. - AAP

DON’T IGNORE THE SNORE 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 seen on 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. 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

hen it comes to snoring, we’ve all experienced the annoyance of listening to that deep breathing through the night. Yet few of us understand the health impacts snoring has, particularly in children. Maroochydore-based paediatric ENT surgeon David McIntosh is sharing his knowledge with parents and healthcare professionals in his book Snored to Death. The book highlights the whole-body consequences of simple snoring in children. This can range from high blood pressure to heart failure, bed wetting to sleep walking, sudden blindness to iron deficiency. My Weekly Preview chatted with the good doctor to find out more. What sparked your interest in writing a book about snoring? We spend a third of our lives sleeping, but it is the most neglected part of our health. The importance of snoring being a sign of airway obstruction seems to be lost. Essentially, if someone was to come into your house and partially choke you or your child every night you would not think it was cute, yet that is what snoring is a sign of, except it is being choked from the inside. I hope to educate many people about the serious effects on your health if you snore. Tell us about this book. This book is written for the general population. It is there for patients, parents,

school teachers, counsellors and the like. It also is written for the benefit of healthcare professionals to raise their awareness. How vital is it that people understand the symptoms and issues related to snoring? We need to talk about children and adults separately. However, there is one common element – snoring is a sign of airway obstruction and this leads to low oxygen levels. In children, they only need to have their oxygen levels drop a little bit. We used to think snoring in children without sleep apnoea was okay because it seems to be in many adults, but the research is showing that assumption is very wrong. So if a child snores or mouth breathes, that is enough to warrant a paediatric ENT opinion. In adults, snoring can be a social problem or a medical problem. It is the former if they are having troubles with others complaining it is affecting them, and the latter if they have consequences such as high blood pressure.

DR MCINTOSH’S TIPS Watch over your child for 10 minutes every night for a week. If the child snores, mouth breathes, stops breathing, grinds their teeth, sleep walks, sleep talks, wets the bed excessively, drools on their pillow, thrashes around in bed, wakes up tired, or has trouble with their behaviour or concentration, talk to your GP or dentist and get a referral to a paediatric ENT.

SUGAR FIX Consumer group CHOICE has joined forces with the Australian Dental Association to launch a new national campaign about the effect of sugar on teeth. The organisations hope it will lead to food labelling changes. Telephone numbers for Australia’s health ministers have been included in the campaign so consumers can call to show their support for ‘added sugar’ labelling. A third of Australian children suffer from tooth decay by the age of six, with

dental services costing Australians an estimated $9.9 billion a year. CHOICE spokesperson Katinka Day says governments must stop dragging their feet on the issue of added sugar labelling. “For too long, consumers have been denied basic information on added sugar. It’s essential that people can easily tell the difference between foods with naturally occurring sugars, like lactose in yoghurt, and added sugars, which have virtually no nutritional benefits,” Ms Day says. - AAP

MOTORING PREVIEW

THE QUIET ACHIEVER Mazda continues to lead the pack with the second-generation CX-5, writes Peter Atkinson, AAP.

F

ooty finals remind us of one brutal truth. Making it to the top is tough, but staying there is even tougher. No matter how good you might be, every year there’s a younger, hungrier challenger ready to take your spot. The same applies to the motor industry. No matter how well-designed, well-built and well-performed a vehicle is, no sooner does it reach the top than it’s under siege. Mazda’s CX-5 is one rare exception. The Japanese maker’s classy mid-sized soft-roader has enjoyed a phenomenal run since it was

launched in 2013, topping the SUV sales charts every year since. But just like footy premiers, automotive market leaders need to stay on their game through a continual process of renewal. In that context, Mazda has kicked a goal with its second-generation CX-5. In replacing a car in its prime, Mazda has avoided wholesale changes. The secondgeneration model is – at least outwardly – an evolution rather than radical redesign. As a result, the first all-new CX-5 in four years looks remarkably like the model it replaces.

It’s beneath the surface where most of the upgrades have taken place. The new CX-5 will be offered in five trim levels (one more than before) and with a choice of three engine packages. The newcomer – the mid-spec Touring tested here – has been launched to bridge the price and features gap between the entry-level Maxx and Maxx Sport variants and the pricier GT and flagship Akera. Of the three engine choices, two are petrol – two litres and 2.5 litres in capacity with outputs of 114kW and 140kW respectively. The lone 2.2-litre diesel delivers 129kW and a hefty 400Nm of torque – while also managing the most frugal thirst of the trio (6L/100km). Impressively, it does so with few of the traditional diesel vices – it’s admirably quiet, smooth and accelerates with verve. Coupled with all-wheel-drive in our test machine, it is a formidable performer. Notably, Mazda’s engineers and designers have focused on the vehicle’s former weaknesses to deliver improvements in the encore version. One of the few knocks on the original CX-5 – and of Mazdas in general – was its tendency to be a little harsh in terms of ride and cabin quietness. That’s been more than addressed in the new model, which is whisper-quiet – even in diesel form – and delivers even more impressive ride and handling characteristics. Problem solved. The CX-5 has been a seminal model for

Mazda – admittedly among a handful of vehicles that have helped define the ‘new’, resurgent Mazda that now boasts Japan’s most complete and most impressive vehicle range. Like many of its Mazda siblings, it’s not outstanding in any particular way, but nor does it have any particular weakness, particularly not since the upgrade. Cabin quietness is perhaps the most notable improvement between generations. It’s hard to see any of its rivals knocking the CX-5 off its pedestal any time soon. Which brings us to one final footy analogy. Form is temporary. Class is permanent. And that certainly applies to Mazda.

MAZDA CX-5 TOURING HOW BIG? Like its mid-sized market rivals, the CX-5 makes the most of its interior and offers ample front and rear-seat space for two adults and three teenagers. Cargo space is generous and easily accessible. HOW FAST? The 2.2-litre, four-cylinder turbo diesel is a willing device, delivering punchy acceleration with quietness and a smoothness. HOW THIRSTY? A big tick for the diesel – the official combined average is just 6L/100km. HOW MUCH? The CX-5 range starts with the $28,690 Maxx. We tested the mid-range Touring, with the 2.2-litre diesel (add $3000) and all-wheel-drive, which was nicely equipped for its $41,990 asking price.

ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 20)

TAURUS (Apr 21-May 21)

GEMINI (May 22-Jun 21)

With dynamic Mars charging through your relationship zone you’re impatient to sort out a partnership problem. But Venus and Pluto encourage you to adopt a more subtle style. A softly-softly approach will help you through any dramas.

This week Venus boosts romantic prospects and business matters. And you’ll find the more creatively you communicate with family members, the more satisfying the week will be. Attached Taurus – it’s a wonderful week to be more patient .

Geminis are the eternal students of the zodiac – your active mind longs for constant stimulation and regular information updates. And your restless nature is drawn to travel, where you can soak up new experiences, lifestyles and cultures.

CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 23)

LEO (Jul 24-Aug 23)

VIRGO (Aug 24-Sep 23)

You’ll be drawn to enjoyable hobbies, obsessions, people and places. A new friendship could flourish or a burgeoning romance could progress to a deeper level. So expect a busy week full of emotionally intense conversations.

This week (in the words of Madonna) it’s time to “Express yourself!” Cat creativity is high, as the Sun stimulates your imagination. Leos love putting on a show and, with Venus visiting your home zone, it’s also a wonderful week to play domestic god/goddess.

The weekly stars highlight study, family functions, community connections and stimulating conversations. So it’s the perfect time for Virgos to talk, text and tweet up a storm. The weekend is fabulous for fraternising with family and friends.

LIBRA (Sep 24-Oct 23)

SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)

Librans appreciate quality and adore living in the lap of luxury, but don’t overdo it or you’ll end up being the most beautiful bankrupt on the block. When it comes to shopping and spending, your biggest challenge is to learn to say ‘no’.

This week you have the power to persuade others over to your point-of-view with your boosted Scorpio charm and sex appeal. Don’t overdo it though – strive to be powerfully persuasive, rather than compulsively controlling.

Avoid being a Sagittarian smart-aleck. When it comes to a problem, things are more complex than they appear and it will take time to get to the bottom of the current situation. The weekend favours fermenting ideas, but don’t be all talk and no action.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)

AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)

PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 20)

Don’t let minor matters get to you. No one wants to be around a grumpy goat! Plus aim to be more proactive, especially when it comes to a work matter. Instead of brooding when other people don’t understand what you want, tell them what you need.

Your boredom threshold is set on low this week, and you don’t have the patience to put up with tedious people. So strive to extricate yourself from such situations in a tactful way. Communication and conversation are the buzz words on the weekend.

Have you been feeling stuck in a rut? Mighty Mars (moving through your public spotlight zone) encourages you to shake up your reputation, take a calculated risk and reach for the stars. If you are involved with a group, club or organisation, be inclusive.

BRINGING THE COOL FACTOR TO COOLUM

First Bay Coolum and Drift by Mosaic are bringing a new aesthetic to Coolum, offering much-needed new property to one of the Coast’s iconic locations.

T

he spotlight is firmly trained on Yaroomba Beach as community groups, residents, business organisations and the developers debate Sekisui House’s proposed development of prime beachfront land. In the meantime, other developments have already been given the green light and are surging ahead, bringing much-needed property stock to an in-demand area. First Bay Coolum has already captured the attention of plenty of home hunters across the region, despite being weeks away from its release to market. Sharing its name with the popular beach it overlooks, the new 24-apartment development has already recorded more than 100 expressions of interest – a figure project architect Ken Down attributes largely to the iconic coast location. “Whether it’s memories of days spent surfing, exploring the rock pools or building sand castles as a child, First Bay holds a special place in the hearts of many Sunshine Coast locals,” Mr Down says. Developer Mel Luke says First Bay Coolum is set to officially launch to market in late November, and he looks forward to officially unveiling the design concepts and

First Bay Coolum is designed to maximise ocean views floorplans at the launch. Construction is scheduled to begin in December. First Bay Coolum comprises two buildings, architecturally designed to maximise ocean views and provide access to the central pool area, gym and landscaped gardens. “A lot of heart and soul has gone into creating a development that will meet the aesthetic of the local area, as well as the lifestyles of those who will ultimately live there. These are not holiday units, they are all

house-sized apartments of at least 200m2 which feature expansive balconies to enjoy the views or entertain family and friends.” Not too far away, Mosaic Property Group is bringing its third Sunshine Coast luxury apartment project to life. Drift by Mosaic offers a rare north-facing oceanfront position and will have 56 one, two and three-bedroom apartments, sub-penthouses and penthouses across four levels. Drift launches to the market on the back

of award-winning Mosaic’s overwhelming sales success at its first two Coast boutique apartment projects, Cyan and Solis at Kings Beach in Caloundra. Mosaic Property Group managing director Brook Monahan says Coolum is the ideal location for the company’s next foray into the picturesque coastal region. “Coolum is unique because it has managed to remain ‘under the radar’ and avoid the hustle and bustle that you see in other parts of the Sunshine Coast. “This laidback character has made Coolum a coveted location for people wanting the best of beachside living and that’s what we plan to deliver with Drift by Mosaic.” Set to rise at 1722 Coolum Esplanade, Drift is designed for low-maintenance luxury beachfront living with each apartment featuring a gourmet kitchen, spacious bathrooms and free-flowing open-plan interiors that are perfect for relaxation and entertaining. As with Mosaic’s Solis project, Drift has secured a six-leaf EnviroDevelopment certification. Construction of Drift is scheduled to start in February 2018 with completion anticipated by May 2019.

This home is one of the best examples of a Queenslander you will ever see. Step back into yesteryear and appreciate the quality workmanship of that era. From the front door there is a seamless transition through the lounge room, dining area, sitting room to the verandah with panoramic ocean views. The high tongue and groove ceilings and walls are offset by polished floorboards. The country-style kitchen has a gas cooktop, plenty of cupboards, island bench and views. Be spoilt by the comfort of the master bedroom, which boasts a double basin ensuite, walk-in robe and is located away from the other bedrooms. The remaining bedrooms are tastefully decorated, two of which easily accommodate queen beds.

HARMONY LAUNCHES COAST’S LARGEST DISPLAY VILLAGE Harmony Display World features 43 homes from 25 national and local builders.

A

s if the mountain views and setting of Harmony’s new sales and information centre weren’t appealing enough, now the aroma of freshly ground barista-brewed Kai Coffee can be added to the sensory delights of this new destination. The sales centre precinct is the gateway to Harmony Display World, the largest display village on the Sunshine Coast, showcasing 43 quality homes from 25 national and local builders. AVID Property Group general manager Bruce Harper says the new space offers residents and potential buyers a space to explore and take in the vision for the new community. “With a series of active and relaxation spaces throughout, the precinct will be a one-stop shop where visitors can not only find information about the homes on offer, but experience the atmosphere and lifestyle of Harmony,’’ Mr Harper says. Making that experience even more enticing is the position of Kai Coffee, which sits in prime position, opposite the new

ARTIST IMPRESSION

The future Linear Park in the lifestyle community of Harmony centre and Harmony Display World. It is the first of many cafés planned for the lifestyle community of Harmony over the next 15 to 20 years. Harmony Display World offers residents and potential buyers an opportunity to explore the diverse range of housing while taking in the vision for the new community. “Providing choice is important to us as

we know that no two buyers’ needs are the same,” Mr Harper says. “Whether visitors are looking for a family-sized home or a more compact home, Harmony Display World has something to suit everyone.” Redefining the notion of the traditional display village, the Harmony Display World has been designed to give visitors the

opportunity to move around the homes at their own pace with relaxation nodes scattered throughout to rest and energise or to simply sit back and take in the setting. These nodes include a series of active and relaxation areas, interactive street art, play areas, edible gardens, a free putt-putt course, street games and puzzles creating an environment that’s reflective of the Sunshine Coast’s character while bringing fun and excitement to people of all ages. Providing a taste of the lifestyle to come, this pioneering display showcase will also come to life in the evenings, as a festive atmosphere takes over thanks to strung lighting and a calendar of twilight events. Harmony’s Sales and Information Centre and Display World are open daily from 10am to 5pm at Harmony Boulevard, Palmview. To visit follow Peter Crosby Way off Claymore Road.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

One of the worst wipeouts you could see at Nazare, Portugal took place last week. English big wave surfer Andrew Cotton dropped and it almost looked like he faded down a 60 foot plus wave, only for it to detonate just behind him as he ejected. The result? The upward push of the wave flung him into the air in front of the wave, which than proceeded to mangle him. Summary? He ended up with a broken back. Man, that is heavy! Have a watch of the video and you be the judge as to whether he faded. Me? I reckon I’d die of a heart attack before the wave broke on me. Yikes! Moving on to this weekend. As it stands it looks like the devil woman is in the house with east winds.
