arlier this week, my husband and I sat on the couch watching Netflix on our smart TV. He was using his phone to check work emails and I was using mine to book appointments and buy the groceries. “What did we do before we had smartphones?” I asked him. There’s no denying that our lives have inexplicably changed since the introduction of these devices. We communicated verbally more often. If I wanted to speak to my friends, I called. After all, there was no Snapchat or Facebook. We spent more time reading actual books, we watched the news to find out what was happening with the weather, we used a phonebook and we certainly couldn’t dim the lights via a smart device. Deloitte’s Mobile Consumer Survey – The Australian Cut 2017 shows just how reliant Australians are on technology. We check our phones around 35 times a day, while 35 per cent of us check our phones within five minutes of waking up. But what impact are our phones and the apps we rely on having on our brains? This is the question MWP deputy editor Leigh Robshaw posed to one of Australia’s favourite scientists in this week’s feature story. Turn to page 10 to read the story. Also this week, we have plenty of local news as we take a look at the state election results and chat with two teenagers who have embarked on the trip of a lifetime. We also have fashion, beauty, travel and our monthly My Home section. Enjoy!

QUICK CHAT

ON THE MOVE Where on the Sunshine Coast do you live? Currently Noosa, but I’ve mostly lived in the lovely Buderim. First job? Waitressing at a very busy cafe in West End. What are you currently working on? I’m teaching at three different schools on the Sunshine Coast and we are all busy preparing for the end-of-year concerts.

Best day in your life? Being offered my first professional ballet contract with the West Australian Ballet. I think I cried.

Your family includes… Mum, Dad, two older brothers, two older sisters, their partners and seven gorgeous nieces and nephews.

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? When I was 17 and I was offered a position to train at the New Zealand School of Dance. Up until then, I wasn’t sure if I would ever really be good enough to become a professional ballet dancer as I wasn’t the best in my dance class and I never won any big competitions. Also, I did very well in school so it was a big commitment mentally and financially to give up the academic pathway I was thinking of and commit to a career in dance.

Do you have a nickname? Vetta or Vettie. First car? A red Citroën Xsara – my dad has passed on his love of French cars to me. Favourite book? Tully by Paullina Simons. What are you reading now? The Messenger by Markus Zusak. Favourite song? I have so many! Hey Ya! by OutKast will always get me up onto the dance floor.

Yvette Sauvage BIO

Brisbane-born Yvette Sauvage has a love of ballet that began at the age of five and hasn’t stopped. After a childhood spent in training for dance, Ms Sauvage became a professional dancer and she teaches on the Sunshine Coast. She is now preparing for an exciting new chapter with the Australian Ballet in 2018, both as a performer and teaching as part of the organisation’s education team.

and regular. I didn’t learn to drive until I moved to the Coast at age 23, as it’s the only place I’ve ever needed to drive.

“I always acknowledge dancers that work hard and reward them for their efforts”

How long have you lived on the Sunshine Coast? Three years. Why do you live here? The beaches and the laidback, friendly atmosphere. I love a great coffee, which there is no shortage of on the Sunshine Coast (and plenty of friendly baristas too!). What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Noosa National Park. I love going out for a surf on the longboard there with Dad and walking through the park with Mum. It’s also where I took my boyfriend Josh on one of our first dates. It’s a special place to me. Where do you take visitors when they come to the Coast? Mount Coolum – the view is well worth the hike. If you could change one thing on the Coast what would it be? I would make public transport more accessible

What achievement are you most proud of? I’m pretty excited to be working for the Australian Ballet soon. After two years off dancing, I wasn’t sure if I could get back to a level where I could perform professionally again, let alone be given such a great opportunity.

You are happiest when? Dancing on stage or spending quality time with my partner Josh. What frustrates you the most? Laziness. How do you deal with your frustrations? I always acknowledge dancers that work hard and reward them for their efforts. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything what would it be? Be more assertive! I was such a pushover at 18. I cared too much about what other people thought, so I would definitely tell myself to stick up for myself and speak out a bit more.

COVER STORY

WHAT ARE YOU THINKING?

Smartphones have made our lives easier and, let’s face it, more fun. But if smartphones are doing the thinking for us, what is happening to our brains? My Weekly Preview investigates. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

I

“It goes back to that old saying – if you don’t use it, you lose it”

t’s hard to believe the world’s first full touchscreen smartphone, the iPhone, was launched 10 years ago. Today, most of us own a smartphone, but its role in our lives is nothing like the role phones played in the past. In fact, making phone calls is not even the main activity we use our phones for anymore. They are our constant companions, our personal assistants and increasingly, our surrogate brains. But what effect is outsourcing our brains having on our cognitive functions? Will our brains turn to mush if we continue to use our smartphones to perform tasks our brains are perfectly capable of performing? The short answer is, it depends how often you use it. But if you’re like most people, that’s a lot. According to Deloitte’s Mobile Consumer Survey – The Australian Cut 2017, released last week, Australians are checking their phones on average 35 times a day, which is 80 million times more often than last year. The survey found 88 per cent of Australians now own a smartphone and 35 per cent of us check our phones within five minutes of waking up. A naughty 70 per cent of us use our phones during mealtimes with family and friends and even more disturbing, about half of 18 to 24-year-olds wake up in the middle of the night to check their phones and respond to messages. According to Deloitte, almost 70 per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds admit they use their phones excessively, 50 per cent are attempting to limit their usage, but only one in five of those are succeeding. “With the diversity of uses for smartphones increasing every year (you can now use your smartphone as a breathalyser, a microscope and to solve a maths equation by taking a photo of it), it’s no wonder Australia is struggling to disconnect,” the report says. With more than two million apps available, there’s an app for just about any task you’d prefer to not have to think about yourself. There are apps that tell you when to drink water, when to sleep, when to have a break from your computer, when to leave for work and when to go to the toilet. Scientists suspect the near-constant interactions with our phones are changing our brains. Apart from the well-documented phone addiction that has arisen from the dopamine hit we get every time we check our devices, small studies are beginning to suggest our beloved smartphones are affecting our memories, our navigation skills and even our ability to create happiness, though to what extent we still don’t know. Speaking to Science News, evolutionary biologist Leah Krubitzer of the University of California said: “I can tell you for sure that technology is changing our brains. It’s

just that so far, no one knows what those changes mean.” One area scientists are exploring is ‘cognitive offloading’, which isn’t limited to smartphones. Any time you write a shopping list or use a calculator, you’re cognitively offloading, but most of us are cognitively offloading the hell out of our phones. Which may not be a bad thing if you use the mental resources you’ve freed up for creative or productive thinking. Australia’s favourite science communicator, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, likes to take an optimistic view. He cites the Flynn effect – in which global IQ scores have been observed to be gradually increasing over time – as evidence we’re getting smarter. But the Flynn effect has been measured since 1930, while prolific smartphone use is a relatively new phenomenon, so it’s too soon to know the effect smartphones are having on IQ. “It’s been about eight years since the first decent smartphone came out and I think it’s really hard to measure anything over such a short period,” says Dr Karl, who will be heading our way in December to present at the Woodford Folk Festival. “But our brains are evolving. We’re living in the most peaceful time ever in the history of the human race and I’m pretty well an optimist based on minimal data.” Dr Karl says he uses a select few apps and is cautious with how much time he devotes to his device. “I ignore the smartphone for long periods of time,’’ he tells My Weekly Preview. “If you’re checking your phone 10 times an hour, when the heck do you do any work? “I’ve got a calendar on my phone that reminds me 10 minutes before an event, so if I can let the automatic alarm run by itself, I don’t have to be always not concentrating on what’s in front of me. In the hour before the alarm went off for this interview, I was working really solidly on a presentation and I was not at all using the smartphone. I was using it purely for the alarm. “I love Twitter and I follow a bunch of people I’ve carefully chosen,” he says. “They’re people who read the scientific literature in various non-overlapping fields. I read what they recommend and pass bits of that onto my Twitter followers. It’s one useful way to access the literature right here, right now. When I want to do it seriously, I do it on my computer, not on the smartphone, and get the original paper. If I read something on my phone, I might forget it, but if I read something and file it away in a folder I’ve created, it reinforces my knowledge.” Which brings us to memory. We used to remember phone numbers, birthdays, directions and appointments as a matter of routine. Now, our smartphones do the

COVER STORY remembering for us, fulfilling the role of memory partners. “I used to know 50 phone numbers and now I only know 20,” Dr Karl says. “It goes back to that old saying – if you don’t use it, you lose it. If you don’t memorise numbers, you lose that skill. However, you might be losing that skill, but there could well be another skill you’ve picked up.” University of the Sunshine Coast senior lecturer in psychology, Dr Rachael Sharman, says there’s no doubt smartphones are affecting our memories. “There is some evidence to suggest a use-it-or-lose-it working memory,” she says. “It’s like a muscle; the more you use it, the better it gets. You can’t fill it up. Remembering phone numbers has a spillover effect in other areas. If you’re outsourcing your brain to a device, you could speculate you’re diminishing some of your cognitive functions.

to know all the important numbers by heart.” Dr Sharman refers to a study published in 2014 by the journal Psychological Science, called Point-And-Shoot Memories by Linda A Henkel, in which the influence on memory of taking photos during a museum tour was studied. It was found that participants who took a photo of each object as they wandered the museum remembered fewer objects and fewer details about the objects than if they observed the objects and did not photograph them. But when participants zoomed in to photograph a specific part of the object, their subsequent recognition and detail memory was not impaired. This finding suggested the cognitive processes engaged by zooming in and paying more attention eliminated the photo-taking-impairment effect. “If you’re running around taking photos, you’re not participating in life,”

“If you stand around looking at photos at an event, you’re less likely to remember the event. You’re outsourcing your brain to your device” Dr Rachael Sharman

“If you stand around looking at photos at an event – like a wedding or a day at the beach – you’re less likely to remember the event,” she says. “You’re outsourcing your brain to your device and you don’t need to spend any time encoding, remembering, reflecting or processing that information. Taking photos is making our memories poorer. “You plug a destination into your phone and it tells you where to go. You fail to remember how to get to friends’ places because you’ve always got your phone, but what happens if you don’t have your phone? “I could not tell you my children’s phone numbers. I got caught without my phone the other day and I couldn’t ring them. We used

Dr Sharman adds. “Do you want to participate and have a rich experience, or do you want a whole lot of photos on Facebook? I can promise you the former will be better for your psychological health.” The more we use our brains to remember information, the better our memories become, but the opposite is also true. In 2006 and 2011, researchers at the University College London’s Institute of Neurology studied the brains of London black cab drivers, who must memorise 25,000 London streets in order to pass the world’s hardest geography exam, The Knowledge. They found those without access to GPS used two parts of the brain: the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus, used for mapping, decision-

making and memory. Those who used the GPS didn’t use those parts of the brain. The researchers showed there is a capacity for memory improvement and structural changes in the human brain well into adulthood and that using a GPS can impair the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus. While the trusty GPS may have put an end to spousal arguments over directions, it is dumbing us down, at least where navigation is concerned, and it often gets it wrong. Type ‘GPS fail’ into YouTube and you can see footage of cars that have ended up in water after the driver followed instructions from the GPS to drive into a river. Of course, Google Maps makes it a breeze to reach your destination most of the time, and iCal alerts can be a lifesaver. And perhaps there’s an upside to our increased reliance on technology: the freeing up of our minds for higher thinking – like productive, creative or critical thinking. Dr Sharman thinks not. “Technology has dumbed down critical thinking,” she says. “One of the great things about having the internet at your fingertips is for fact checking, but for complex problems or working out what you think about a social policy, it’s not so great. “Challenging your thinking is the backbone of critical thinking. In order to get you to think critically, I have to take your idea and reflect it back to you as a problem. If you burst into tears and run from the room, that’s the end of critical thinking. “Also, we’ve seen a number of people viciously attacked via Twitter and other social media for daring to float an idea others don’t like. The internet is terrible for higher thinking and we need to recognise its limitations,” she says. How our brains evolve in response to smartphone use remains to be seen, but one theory is our brains will become like an index, which simply tells us where on our many devices we can find the information we need. When we store information externally rather than memorising it, we’re likely to forget the information, but remember where we can find it. And if we don’t – well, no doubt there’ll be an app for that.

CULTURAL EXCHANGE

A group of Immanuel Lutheran College staff and students is travelling to Sumatra for a life-changing trip. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

G

eorgia Phillips and Jai Kunze have travelled overseas before, but nothing will compare with the trip of a lifetime they are embarking on with fellow Immanuel Lutheran College staff and students. The Year 10 students have joined peer Emma Brogan and recent graduate Sam Moore, college principal Colin Minke, chaplain Gayla Mathews and teacher Todd Sobey on a journey to Sumatra, where they will work in a secondary school in Parapat, four hours south of the capital of Medan, and interact with disabled students in a newly formed disability rehabilitation centre in Raya. The journey is an important next step to build on the partnership foundations laid by Mr Minke and Immanuel Lutheran Church pastor Matt Thiele, who visited the HKBP Synod school last year. “The idea is to form links with a secondary school where our students can share experiences, work with local students and experience life in a culture considerably different from their own,” Mr Minke says. “The students will run activities and share their own knowledge, all the while forming relationships with local children,

people in Sumatra grow up and get by on whatever they’ve got,” Jai says. Georgia says it will be a great opportunity to give back. “It’s something young people don’t do enough of. I’m looking forward to learning all about their culture and gaining an understanding of what they have been through. It will really make us thankful for what we have,’’ she says. The group has stocked up on gifts to give the young people they meet during their travels. They will also spend $2000 on new supplies from Sumatran businesses to boost the local economy and provide the schools with some of the resources they need. Ms Mathews says it is an ideal opportunity for the students to learn how to put their ideals of helping others into practice. “We learn how to serve others and this will be a practical way to discover how we do that in real life. What does it mean when we are confronted with things and we are pushed outside of our comfort zones? “This will be an experience that we will all earn from and the students will come back in Year 11 next year and share that with the rest of the school.”

Georgia Phillips and Jai Kunze with chaplain Gayla Mathews their teachers, and the wider community. It’s about developing cultural capital and sowing the seeds for future trips and possible student and/or teacher exchanges.” The two-week trip is a service-based cultural immersion and Jai says it will give the group a chance to see the real way of life for the people in these towns, which is a far cry from the tourist experience. “It is going to be very moving to see how

“I’m looking forward to learning all about their culture… It will make us thankful for what we have”

NOMINATE A SUNSHINE COAST LOCAL HERO

BOAT PARADE WILL DELIGHT SPECTACTORS Many spectators are expected to gather along The Wharf and La Balsa Park to watch the 14th annual Mooloolaba Christmas boat parade on December 16. Starting at 6.30pm, the parade will travel down the Mooloolah River with The Wharf Mooloolaba hosting a special outdoor broadcast by Todd and Sami from Mix FM. Entrants of the boat parade can win trophies for numerous best dressed boat categories with all parade entry fees directly supporting the Coast group STEPS Charity. The event is organised by the Mooloolaba Yacht Club, to enter your boat in the parade or find out more, visit christmasboatparade.net.

Reluctant medical heroes from Down Under were thrown into the limelight as The Surgery Ship documentary won the Best Human Interest category at the Association for International Broadcasting Awards in London. The eight-part series follows the challenges onboard the world’s largest civilian hospital ship, operated by international charity Mercy Ships. The team provides free medical care to people living in extreme poverty along the West African coast. Mercy Ships Australia managing director Alan Burrell, who lives on the Sunshine Coast, says five billion people don’t have access to safe surgery, and as a result nearly 18 million people die each year.

SUNSHINE PLAZA HAS SKY-HIGH HOPES The Sunshine Plaza has lodged a development application with the council for a high ropes course to be constructed. It will be Australia’s first and biggest high ropes course to be located inside a shopping centre. It is anticipated to include a 21-metre-high viewing deck and 10 zip lines reaching up to 103 metres to glide over the waters of Cornmeal Creek. The project is a part of the plaza’s $400-million redevelopment which is currently in progress and also includes the expansion of the shopping centre to become the largest retail centre located north of Brisbane. It will include new stores such as David Jones, BIG W and more than 100 more.

REVIEW

COAST TOURISM SHINES AT QLD TOURISM AWARDS Sunshine Coast tourism operators have taken out seven accolades at the 2017 Queensland Tourism Awards. RACV Noosa Resort received the inaugural RACQ People’s Choice Award for its accommodation, as well as a gold award for its self-contained accommodation. Diddillibah holiday park Rivershore Resort was awarded a silver award for its New Tourism Business and bronze awards went to Australia Zoo and Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat for their hosted accommodation and Tourism Noosa 2016-2017 for their Interstate Marketing Campaign. Bli Bli House received a highly commended award for its hosted accommodation.

NOOSA NOW A WORLD SURFING RESERVE Noosa has become the 10th point break on the planet to have won recognition as a World Surfing Reserve. The announcement comes after two earlier applications for the coveted status by the Noosa National Surfing Reserve committee in 2015 and 2016. The recognition was granted by the World Surfing Reserve, a division of the Save the Waves Coalition. The title serves as extra protection for the popular breaks, with the status a valuable tool to use in maintaining key environmental, cultural, economic and community attributes of the area. Other World Surfing Reserves include Malibu, California, Punta De Lobos in Chile and Guarda Do Embau in Brazil.

$2.48 MILLION SOLAR FARM’S WIN The Sunshine Coast Solar Farm project has been recognised with a major award at Queensland’s 2017 Planning Institute of Australia Awards for Planning Excellence. The project began in July with the Sunshine Coast Council becoming the first local government in Australia to build a utility scale solar farm. It is the first in Southeast Queensland to be connected to the Energex grid. The project won the Wendy Chadwick Encouragement Award for being innovative and showing the greatest promise of achieving the vision of excellence in Queensland.

One of the milestone projects of the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of the Sunshine Coast has been completed, with the Sunshine Coast Council’s newly renovated Coolum Library unveiled. With hints of green, orange and yellow drawn from the surrounding bush, river banks and the area’s history of cane sugar farming, the Coolum Library theme concept reflects what makes this location special. Division 9 Councillor Stephen Robinson says $2.48 million in improvements include an inviting reconfigured entry and an expansion of the children’s zone allowing for dedicated areas for storytelling, reading nooks and tables for colouring in and other children’s activities.

ATHLETICS FAMILY INDUCTED INTO HALL OF FAME Australia’s ‘first family of athletics’ has been inducted into the Sunshine Coast Sports Hall of Fame at the University of the Sunshine Coast. Ray and Denise Boyd and their daughter Alana Quade, all from Alexandra Headland, were honoured for their many achievements representing Australia in track and field events. When Ms Quade competed in pole vault at Beijing in 2008, it was the first time that a child of two Olympians had represented Australia at the Olympics. Mr Boyd won 11 Australian championships in pole vault, winning a gold medal at the 1982 Commonwealth Games in Brisbane and his wife Denise (nee Robertson), was one of the greatest sprinters throughout the 1970s and ’80s. She represented Australia at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games and three Commonwealth Games.

LNP STILL THE COAST’S TOP PICK

PAY RISE ON THE WAY

Labor comes up trumps, but you wouldn’t know it on the Sunshine Coast. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane. the Labor party held 43 seats and needed just another four to secure government and return Annastacia Palaszczuk as premier. The LNP was lagging behind on 35 and One Nation looked likely to win just one seat.

AAP

HOW THE COAST VOTED

T

he Sunshine Coast has elected a dominant force of Liberal National Party representatives across all divisions, but the state is on track to be governed by the Labor Party. Only neighbours Noosa broke the LNP mould, voting in independent candidate Sandy Bolton. While Coast voters have returned a number of familiar faces to their seats, there are a few new ones in the mix, with Ninderry and Buderim supporting political newcomers for the next term. The brand-new seat of Ninderry, which takes in Coolum Beach, Peregian Springs, Eumundi, Yandina, Bli Bli, Didillibah, Kuluin and Forest Glen, fielded seven candidates, with police officer Dan Purdie securing the division for the LNP. Mr Purdie is new to the political arena and will leave his position on the Queensland Police Child Protection and Investigation Unit to join parliament.

Buderim incumbent Steve Dickson’s bold move to defect to One Nation and later become the party’s state leader did not pay off, with voters preferring to stick with the LNP and therefore placing their faith in former soldier and ANZ Queensland commercial financial planner Brent Mickelberg. Maroochy incumbent Fiona Simpson, who has held the seat for the LNP since 1992, will serve another term with close to half of the primary vote in her favour and the neighbouring division of Kawana also voted overwhelmingly for the LNP with Jarrod Bleijie securing almost 57 per cent of the primary vote. In Caloundra, Jason Hunt was a strong contender for the seat, but incumbent Mark McArdle will continue to hold the seat and despite being in one of the most marginal seats in the state, Andrew Powell has managed to retain his seat in Glass House. With 76.3 per cent of the vote counted,

Queensland apprentices will receive a substantial wage increase after the Federal Court made a landmark ruling they should be paid as much as those in other parts of the country. The Federal Court dismissed an application by Australia’s biggest employer of apprentices that workers in the sunshine state should continue to be the lowest paid in the country. All Trades Queensland and other employer groups lodged an appeal earlier this year after the Fair Work Commission twice ruled trainees should be covered by a modern federal award rather than an old state award. The companies argued they should be able to keep paying first-year apprentices just $8.75 an hour, more than $4 less than workers in other states. Electrical Trades Union apprentice coordinator Scott Reichman said the landmark decision meant all trainees, not just those working for the businesses that lodged the appeal, should receive an immediate pay rise. Mr Reichman said it was estimated Queensland’s “tens of thousands” of apprentices were owed more than $100 million. – AAP

MY OPINION

LOVE STRUCK

ALL IN THE MIND

Sami Muirhead is fascinated by the elaborate mating rituals of the animal kingdom, and that includes hapless humans.

If you find it hard to change your mind about something you feel sure about, you’re not alone. Neuroscience has the answer, writes Richard O’Leary.

S

ome fellows will go to extremes to win their woman over. A new study has shown an Aussie dolphin is literally doing backflips for his salty sea crush and then foraging the ocean floor, all in the name of love. The male bottlenose dolphin is one smart animal as it finds a rare type of sea sponge and then jumps out of the water for a few impressive leaps, then tosses it at its potential lover as part of its courting ritual. The sponge we can only assume is equivalent to a bit of diamond bling in the human world. I mean, if my husband took me for a dip in the ocean and then did a few tumble turns before hurling a whopping diamond pair of earrings at me, well, I probably would have whisked him down the aisle a bit earlier. Instead, he wooed me with this strange Swiss dish from his family recipe book that involves spaghetti bolognaise covered in apple sauce. Nowadays there is much less courting as we sit in our T-shirts and watch TV and whisper romantic things to each other such as, “Can you pass me the remote control, please” and “I’m really tired so I am going to hit the hay soon so I can get up early to soak my oats.” Steamy and romantic indeed. And by soak my oats, I refer to making bircher muesli so get your mind out of the gutter. I was always smitten with a love ritual when I visited a slum in India. The men had

no money but would return at night to seduce their girlfriends with gifts of stories of their day. Going out on a date was simply not an option, so instead they would sit for hours and tell elaborate stories as a way of showing their love and tenderness. It is amazing what you do when you cannot go for a movie and a wine on a first date. And of course, the animal world takes the number one prize when it comes to weird and whacky mating rituals. Every week I walk past a massive nest built for loving by a very determined and demented scrub turkey at Buddina. The bird has built a nest that is the size of my living room. And he is always looking so incredibly worried and stressed and in search of further padding for his future love nest. The impressive structure is no doubt infuriating to locals, but hopefully endearing for the female scrub turkey he is hell-bent on winning over. Now if we leave our local shores and look abroad, the humble hippo is sort of disgusting when it comes to mating rituals. The big fellow literally loses all bodily control in full sight of his potential mate. And as if being covered in wee and poo is not enough, the hippo then twirls his tail around like a fan and ensures his girlfriend is also covered in urine. Wow. Just wow. My husband in his T-shirt wielding a harmless remote control for the TV is suddenly seemingly very appealing.

H

ave you ever wondered why it’s so hard for people to change their minds? Other people I mean, I’m sure you have no problems admitting when you have made a mistake. There was a great article in The Guardian recently, which tried to explain the phenomenon. The author Dean Burnett says it all comes down to the neuroscience of no regrets. Burnett says our decisions are inextricably linked to who we are and therefore turning our backs on them is the equivalent of disowning ourselves. He uses this theory to explain why a year after the Brexit and Trump votes that most people who voted for them are still comfortable with their decisions despite the drama-plagued 12 months which have followed. It got me thinking about how closely my behaviour fits into this pattern. Firstly, I looked at my voting behaviour. In the past 27 years have I ever regretted my vote in a national, state or territory election? No. Even when the government I had supported proved to be disappointment I always assumed the other side would have been even worse. Then I considered books I have started to read but given up because I thought they were no good. Sure, on a

couple of occasions I have attempted them again at the urging of friends whose taste in literature I respect, but I still haven’t finished Catch-22, Wolf Hall or The Great Gatsby. Do I admit I am wrong about these books? Nope. Which by definition means I think everyone else must be in error. Or bad judges. Or both. Same goes for movies. I’ve started watching The Sound of Music, The Wizard of Oz and Gone with the Wind at least once every summer holidays for the past four decades, but I’m yet to see the final credits of any of them. Do I concede that it may be me at fault rather than the movies? Nope. Not for a minute. But to be fair on myself, despite my position on books and movies remaining constant over the years, my views on arguably more important issues have evolved as I’ve grown older. I now believe in work-life balance, peace and serenity are more important than owning things, and what everyone else thinks about me is none of my business. But some things I still clutch close to my chest. I still believe Parramatta is the only team worth following in the NRL, despite all the evidence to the contrary. I wonder how the neuroscientists would explain that strange affliction.

LOVE IS LOVE A local celebrant is preparing for same-sex Coast couples who are ready to commit. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

Your money questions answered

with Michael Rowland

My wife and I are in receipt of a part age pension and would like to gift some money to our grandchildren. We are unsure of the gifting rules and don’t wish to upset our own Centrelink position. Can you shed some light? (K&L 4551)

rule changes affected this strategy and if so should I continue? (D&K 4558)

You can gift amounts up to $10,000 per financial year, per couple, but no more than $30,000 over 5 years. If you stay within this then your pension is not affected. Of course, if you do provide a gift, your pool of assets from which you draw an income will be a little lower, so you’ll just need to keep that in mind.

The recent changes to the superannuation system are wide and varied. For TTR Income streams one of the main benefits was that the pool of assets within these accounts enjoyed tax free earnings. When coupled with a tax-free income stream for those over 60, it made them very popular.

Should you gift more than the amounts above, the excess will be considered a deprived asset and continues to be captured under both the assets test and the income test for a period of 5 years. At the end of the 5 years, the amount of the deprived asset drops off and your pension may increase.

The rule change here is that the pool of assets supporting the income stream is now subject to tax up to a maximum of 15%. With them no longer enjoying tax free earnings one of the major benefits has been taken away.

Gifting larger amounts of money can have potential benefits from an estate planning point of view in the future, particularly if you are concerned about the surviving spouse continuing to receive a reasonable amount of age pension. Single thresholds are quite different to the thresholds a couple enjoy and having all assets owned by a single can drastically reduce any Centrelink entitlements. Some pre-planning in this area could be helpful but it is complicated and there are many other aspects to consider, such as future care needs, over and above the Centrelink outcome. Helping out family is great but just make sure you keep enough for you as well. I’m getting closer to retirement and have been running a ‘Transition to Retirement’ (TTR) strategy with my super accounts. Have the recent

If you move back to the accumulation phase of super the tax is the same, but you will no longer have the income from the pension account. So, for some people the income stream may still be of value as it could be being used to reduce debt or supporting a genuine transition to full retirement. If this is still a goal it may be appropriate to continue. If the income derived was only being re-contributed back into super then the benefit may no longer be as strong, if there at all. There are many changes to the super system that should be addressed for you if you have a strategy like this in place. So it is very much a case by case basis and should be viewed in the overall context of your goals and objectives. If you revisit these a good adviser should be able to help ensure that your path to retirement continues to be realistic and on track.

he majority of Sunshine Coast residents have said yes to same-sex marriage, but couples will still be waiting at least a few months before they can say “I do”. The Australian Bureau of Statistics revealed the results of the nationwide vote on same-sex marriage on November 15, with 61.6 per cent of voters in favour and 38.4 per cent against. A staggering 80 per cent of registered voters participated in the survey. On the Sunshine Coast, 81 per cent of the population voted, with 63 per cent of Fisher residents and 64 per cent of Fairfax residents voting yes. The results, however, are not legally binding and Federal politicians are now in the process of debating and finalising the laws that will allow same-sex marriage to proceed. When the time comes, Sunshine Coast marriage celebrant Lynette Maguire will be ready. The Birtinya resident has been an open advocate for same-sex marriage and has performed civil ceremonies for many

couples who wanted to commit to one another before the law was changed. Ms Maguire has offered to marry those couples, all ladies, free of charge once the law is changed. “I think [the result] is absolutely fabulous,” she says. “Love wins, which is what we are all after. “I’m happy to marry all of the lady loves I have worked with. It’s the least I can do, quite frankly. Marriage should be about love; it shouldn’t be about politics and the law shouldn’t govern love.” In his landmark speech following the unveiling of the results, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull pledged to have the same-sex legislation passed before Christmas. But even if the House of Representatives and Senate can agree on a bill before their last sitting on December 7, couples still have to file a Notice of Intended Marriage and then wait 30 days for it to be cleared before they can legally walk down the aisle. This means the earliest same-sex weddings can happen is February 2018.

FREE RECHARGE POINT LAUNCHED ON THE COAST The Sunshine Coast has welcomed the region’s first recharge point on the eve of International Day of People with Disability. The point, which will enable people to recharge their mobility scooter or wheelchair battery for free, will be launched at Kawana Shoppingworld today, December 1. Located between Woolworths and the Red Apple shop, it will be accessible seven days a week. The recharge point is being launched for the international day, which will be held on December 3 to recognise the contributions people with disabilities make to their communities, and to celebrate their achievements. Community Portfolio Councillor Jenny

McKay says the event is an opportunity for the Sunshine Coast community to learn how to break down the barriers for people with disabilities. “Council has also organised for a professional electrician to provide free testing and tagging for mobility scooters and motorised wheelchair charging cords from 10am to noon on December 1,” adds Cr McKay. Kawana Shoppingworld centre manager Claire Torkington says, “We are proud to be announced as the first recharge point and this is a welcome addition to our existing range of facilities to cater for customers with disabilities.” myweeklypreview.com.au

Gigi Hadid’s less to luxe beauty buys Gigi Hadid is one of the modelling world’s ‘It’ girls. She was named the International Model of the Year by the British Fashion Council last year, and at just 22, earns almost $10 million a year. While she’s clearly not short of a quid, she’s known to favour cheap skincare and cosmetics, like the $9.99 St Ives Apricot Scrub, along with luxury products and nd doesn’t seem to discriminate. If it works for her, she buys it. Some of her must-haves are:

TRY A LIQUID BLUSH FOR SUMMER Liquid blush can give you a natural, fresh-faced glow for summer, but you need to know how to apply it. Use a blending sponge or brush, like Lancôme’s Dual-End Cheek & Contour Brush #25 ($80 from Myer). Apply two dots to your cheek after your moisturiser and liquid foundation but before your powder foundation. Immediately after applying the blush, quickly blend up and out with your brush. Don’t delay, or it will set and go streaky. Try NARS Liquid Blush in Orgasm. It’s the new liquid version of the universally flattering peachy-pink NARS cult classic powder and is $44 from Mecca Maxima.

A TINY HEARING AID THAT

If you’ve been suffering with high blood pressure, or symptoms of low blood pressure such as dizziness, rapid heart rate, fatigue, or chest pain, there may be a systemic health problem, leading to complication with your heart. These types of heart complaints can affect you at any age and any fitness level. Pericarditis can present with other symptoms such as dry cough, fever, fatigue and anxiety, and in acute stages, be very similar to symptoms of heart attack pain, though in many cases there may not be any symptoms at all, occasionally leading to sudden heart attack without warning. If the cause is misdiagnosed, and not identified, it may progress to heart failure over time.

A patient aged 80 with a history of high blood pressure, previously suffered a heart attack at the age of 50, presented with a dangerously high aortic (heart) blood pressure of 150/110, caused by inflammation in the heart tissues, having been medicated for the previous 30 years with a brachial (arm) blood pressure 120/80. He was unaware that his blood pressure measured differently in various parts of his body. With this type of investigation, 2 forms of infection were found as well as high levels of inflammation produced by triggers in his diet. Within 2 months, his blood pressure normalised, within 10 months his cholesterol and triglycerides dropped to within normal levels, and inflammatory markers were reduced. He was then able to remove his medication with the support of his doctor after 30 years. Specific blood and stool testing is necessary to identify the type of infection, with each type responding differently to different types of treatment. Accurate treatment measures are then undertaken resulting in complete recovery, rather than relying on medications to control symptoms for life. Medications to control symptoms rather than treating the cause may lead to side effects, which may create further health complications in the future, which is why it is important to completely investigate your particular circumstances. Reduce your risk of heart disease for life, for you and your family’s sake, with the right testing and treatment, without the need for lifelong medication. Contact Advanced Wellness 1800 699 355 for a free half hour consultation to discuss your health concerns further.

Oahu’s famous Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head don’t disappoint

MEETING MANTAS IN HEAVENLY HAWAII There’s more to this paradise than beaches. WORDS: Abi Jackson, AAP.

W

hen you’re too old for Santa, there aren’t many moments in life where you experience wondrous, I-can’t-believethis-is-really-happening anticipation. But right now, about 200 metres off the shore of Keauhou Bay on the west coast of the island of Hawaii, wet-suited and flipper-booted, my snorkel-masked face

planted firmly downwards, that is exactly what I’m experiencing. I’m doing an evening manta ray snorkel adventure. The sun’s already set, and I and about 15 others are clinging onto a special float affixed with torches, whose beams of light are peppered with plankton (a food source which will hopefully attract the mantas).

his wings brush against my belly (snorkellers are strictly forbidden from touching as it can damage the manta ray’s delicate skin, but the wildlife has free rein). Another slightly smaller ray with a smattering more markings follows, and soon they’re in full Dancing With the Stars mode, tumbling top-to-tail just inches below us. After an hour in the water, shrivelled and shivering, I clamber back onto the boat, burping with seasickness but bubbling with pure, unadulterated delight. This Polynesian paradise guarantees sunshine, surf and scenery straight out of Jurassic World (its lush landscapes have featured in numerous blockbusters,

Excited gasps ripple through the water, and then he’s back, swimming so close I can see straight down his gills and feel the tips of

TRAVEL interesting, hyped and authentic food spots. Getting to The Big Island for the second leg of my trip entails a short 45-minute flight, and it’s totally worth it. The volcanic landscape is a world apart from Oahu. Vast swathes of craggy pewter-tinged black rock stretch out on either side of the road on the drive to our hotel from the airport, a striking contrast against the bright blue skies. And as I soon discover, the Hilton Waikoloa Village does a good job in matching the drama of the scenery – this epic resort is like a Bond villain lair, complete with boats and a monorail to transport guests from reception to room in the vast resort. With luxurious sleeping areas, a sprawling spa and choice of bars, plus a pool far too big to fit in a single Instagram shot, it’d be easy to spend an entire holiday in the resort and love every minute of it. But this island is begging to be explored. We’ve hired a car (there’s very little public transport) for a day trip to Volcanoes National Park. It’s a few hours’ drive from the hotel, but we’re rewarded with endless hikes and walks through jungles and caves. Look out for steam vents – yes, Kilauea is live. In fact it’s one of the biggest active volcanoes in the world, bubbling away since 1983 (but don’t worry, there’s little chance of it erupting without ample warning). We lunch at The Rim, overlooking the Halemaumau crater. It’s a pinch-yourself moment. But of course, my ultimate Hawaii experience was the evening dip with those manta rays. Breathtaking encounters, unforgettable scenery and ultimate chilled beachy vibes – Aloha, Hawaii.

including the hit dinosaur caper, plus Godzilla and Snatched). Hawaii state is actually an archipelago of more than 100 islands, but they’re not all inhabited and there are eight main ones, each with unique characteristics. My flying visit’s split between two: Oahu, home of state capital Honolulu, and the island of Hawaii, aka The Big Island. I start in Honolulu, staying at the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Hotel, which backs right onto the world-famous golden sands and sits slap-bang in the middle of the city, on a street dotted with designer shops and restaurants that wouldn’t look out of place in Miami. While it’d be criminal not to devote some quality time to soaking up the sun and surf vibes on Waikiki Beach – and taking dips in the warm sea – I’m keen to see as much as I can. I decide on an early-morning hike up Diamond Head, a 300,000-year-old crater that was once an important military lookout, with panoramic views overlooking the island and ocean beyond. Though steep in parts, it takes less than an hour to reach the top and is a great way to work up an appetite: Honolulu is not short of great places to eat. I feast on Crab Cake Benedict at Hau Tree Lanai, famous for its extensive takes on the classic egg dish, while Tiki’s Grill & Bar serves up down-to-earth but delicious hearty fare, and one of the best Mai Tais in town. I discover that everybody in Honolulu doesn’t live in board shorts and thongs, and the place is actually quite glossy and glam. This has led to a string of fancy restaurants cropping up in recent years. Head to the newly opened Baku for melt-in-yourmouth sushi, while Herringbone also serves spectacular seafood. Both restaurants are just a few minutes’ walk from the Outrigger. Foodie Tour by Bike is an ideal way to get a taste of Honolulu. Founder and guide Kelly – an ageing Californian hippy who “came to Hawaii on a surfing holiday 35 years ago and never left” – leads small groups cycle tours, stopping off for potted history lessons along the way, and to sample some of the city’s more

TODD’S TALES

I

t seemed like a good idea, really it did, when Sami (the girl I talk with on the radio) said, “You know Tim here at work? He’s a single guy. We should set him up.” I thought, yep, that’s a great idea lady. So I got to work right away setting him up. It was only when the cops led Timmy away in handcuffs that I realised my mistake. When Sami said “set him up” she didn’t actually mean plant a bag of cocaine and a handgun in the top drawer of his desk. My bad. Simple misunderstanding really.

Like the time I called the adult superstore and asked for one adult. Worse still was the simple misunderstanding that time I was doing some casual work at the local chemist and a bloke asked me if Viagra worked and I said “yes” and he said “so can you get it over the counter?” and I said “only if I take two”. Then there’s the pet shop disaster of ’98 when I said to my wife “oh this sucks, the kitten has eaten all the grapes” and she said “well just get some more”. Yet later that day I arrive home drowning in kittens and that’s when she says, “ummm I meant more gra… you know what, don’t worry about it”. Speaking of my wife, when she told her dad we were engaged he said, “well Todd, you should have asked me first”. I was like “arr sorry Bill, I get this is awkward but you’re not really my type”. Misunderstanding. One thing I can assure you won’t find me stuffing up the details on is the pure awesomeness of Your Mates Brewing Co. Throughout history there have been remarkable duos like Burke and Wills, Crockett and Tubbs, Jagger and Richards, chips and gravy, and now there’s Hepburn and McGarry. These two mates, Matt Hepburn and Christen McGarry, have

slogged it out over the past few years building a local brewing empire. As it says on their website, the Your Mates story represents big dreams, big cohones and the spirit of mateship. This is all reflected in their signature beer, Larry. Larry Pale Ale is everyone’s buddy – relaxed and casual but also sharp as, keen to let it rip and armed with a witty one-liner or two. He’s always ready to offer wisdom and guidance but then just as happy to chill and take it all in. In a nutty, Larry’s a legend. The Your Mates Brewing Co is gypsy brewing with the MacLeods gang in Maleny and gathering momentum like a fat politician tumbling down the steps of parliament. And I am stoked to say Larry’s a ripper in a can; easily one of the best pale ales on offer and perfect for the festive season celebrations ahead. Larry nails a well deserved four-and-a-half thumbs up out of five.

DRESSING THE TABLE

Today marks the official start of summer and it also launches us into the year’s biggest festive season. With Christmas only 24 sleeps away, My Weekly Preview’s Candice Holznagel takes a look at some unique and stylish ways to dress up your home for the holidays. You are sure to create some Christmas decor envy with these tips.

we love!

Tired of the red and green colour combination? Step away from tradition and opt for a modern palette. We loved creating this unique dining setting by blending gold, white and moody blues. Other colour and material combos that work beautifully include natural shades of green with timber elements or white with silver.

The Foxy wall decoration from Domayne, $29.

SEASONAL SCENTS Christmas is not only a visually pleasing holiday. It conjures up thoughts of freshly baked cookies, festive food and aromatic flavours. Use bunches of cinnamon sticks, pine cones, fresh flowers and wreaths to entice the senses. You will love the smell throughout your home, plus these elements will bring yet another texture and colour into your Christmas interior design.

tip When decorating, follow the layering rule. Use different textures and tones to create depth and interest. Placing decor items at varying heights is also visually appealing. Using candles on the table or shelf? Use different sizes.

LIVE CHRISTMAS TREES: TOP THREE TIPS

T Marjorie Van Roy is a horticulturist and the director of Manawee Garden Centre. She is passionate about providing advice to customers ranging from the home gardener to the developer. Her aim is to create a garden or a space where people can gain pleasure and enjoyment from it. Having lived both in the southern states and in Queensland, Van Roy has extensive knowledge of both tropical and cool-climate plants and their requirements. Van Roy has a personal interest and love of the French country style, using extensive hedging and pleached trees from magnolias to fruit trees.

he Christmas spirit is well and truly here, and as we get closer to the big day, it pays to keep an eye on the garden to ensure your inside and outside are looking fantastic. There is nothing that says Christmas more than the smell of a fresh pine tree and even though Christmas in Australia can be some of the warmest times of the year, it is still possible to have a live tree in the house. These are our top three tips for having a living Christmas tree this year: 1. Don’t keep your tree indoors for long periods of time. As a living tree, they do require several hours of direct sunlight regularly to keep them green and healthy. Bring the tree inside for parties and the big day, but try not to keep it inside for more than five days at a time, then take it outside to a nice sunny location for a week or so to keep it growing well. 2. Water well, but not on the foliage. Pine trees don’t like having wet foliage, so water the roots well but avoid keeping the foliage constantly wet. The best way is to soak them every two or three days before bringing them back inside. They do need to drain – so don’t leave them soaking in a saucer of water while they are inside.

3. Pot it up for next year. Most living Christmas trees are not super-fast growers – so after all the festivity is over, treat them to new potting mix, fresh fertiliser and a slightly bigger home and you will have a bigger, better tree for the following year. We are fortunate enough to live in a climate where we can celebrate the season

both indoors and outdoors, so while decorating inside don’t forget to spruce up the outside as well. If you have planted out your annual display of flowers, make sure you are fertilising regularly. Liquid fertilisers such as Flourish, Thrive and potash can all be applied regularly and make flowers bloom as fast as possible.

Water well, but not on the foliage. Pine trees don’t like having wet foliage, so water the roots well but avoid keeping the foliage constantly wet.

FROM GARDEN TO GOURMET Advanced herbs can be a great way to have freshness on hand at any time. A mixture of advanced herbs can make a great gift too. Consider mixing some herbs that are commonly used together to make themed containers or plantings. Make a Sunday roast collection of thyme, sage and rosemary, or a pizza planting with tomato, basil and rocket. For the hot heads make a mixed chilli pot, you can get super hot, medium and mild chilli, so you can choose just how hot you want it to get.

If your garden is full of flowers and you want to bring them indoors, remember that fresh is best – so cut them as close to the time you need them as possible. Whether it be a hot cooked meal or a cold seafood platter, a lunch or a dinner, there is no better way to freshen up your banquet than with fresh ingredients.

BITCOIN BASICS

W

e have taken many calls lately asking if we deal in Bitcoin, what we think of Bitcoin, and if people should invest in it. The short answers are “no”, “a bubble”, and “it’s not an investment – just speculation”. Bitcoin is a virtual currency (in other words, it exists in the cloud). There are only 16 million Bitcoins on issue and there can only ever be 21 million (until maybe someone somewhere decides to increase supply). It is just one of many dozens of cryptocurrencies worldwide. Supply is determined by a mathematical algorithm, calculated daily, and this supply is increased by ‘Bitcoin mining’. This means letting your computer, or banks of computers, calculate complex mathematical algorithms. Miners band their computers together to make powerful server farms,

however, the time and effort required to mine Bitcoins is variable. Interestingly, one of the biggest costs of mining is power consumption, as mining involves not only CPU useage but also graphics useage. So it may be uneconomical for an Australian to mine Bitcoins with our high electricity costs, compared with somewhere else in the world with lower electricity costs. Bitcoins are stored in a ‘digital wallet’, which is like a virtual bank account that can receive Bitcoins and can be used to pay for goods and services. However, unlike a real bank account, digital wallets are not government guaranteed. Access to your Bitcoin supply can be through a Bitcoin ATM (there are around 1700 globally at the moment, although Australia plans to roll out 3000 of them), by using them to buy goods and services, or they can be transferred via a mobile app. Like any currency, trading is possible and it appears speculation is now rampant. There is no central government or regulator and as purchases are anonymous, it is highly likely many purchases are crime related. The biggest trading market is China. In a move that is likely to encourage even more speculation, there is talk of a Bitcoin ETF being issued and perhaps even Bitcoin futures. It is highly likely that such moves will only hasten the move towards Bitcoin becoming a case study in

economics – a good way to teach students about irrational crowd behaviour. Apart from the meteoric rise in value, one of the most interesting things about Bitcoin is Blockchain, the technology that allows it to exist. This is the backbone that makes the exchange of bitcoins between individuals possible without a central ledger that records who owns what Bitcoins. Most experts refer to the technology as a “distributed ledger”, which allows all those who trade in an asset class to agree on the ownership of the assets in near real time, without a single ledger that is centrally maintained. Think of it as a spreadsheet that everyone around the world can have open simultaneously being updated in real time. The opportunities for this are enormous: instantaneous bank transfers; registration of share ownership; movement of cargo across the globe. All of these transactions and more will become seamless with the use of Blockchain technology. It will be interesting to see where the whole thing ends up. I could be wrong and it may not be a repeat of the Tulip mania bubble. But I don’t think so. Time will tell.

HOSPITAL REBRAND Thirty-seven years after opening its doors, the Sunshine Coast Private Hospital has been renamed. The decision to rebrand as the Buderim Private Hospital comes following the launch of the Sunshine Coast University private and public hospitals. It is hoped the change will make the location of the Buderim hospital clearer and help avoid confusion. The hospital’s onsite radiology service provider, Sunshine Coast Medical Imaging, will also change its name to Buderim Private Medical Imaging. Buderim Private Hospital general manager Wallis Westbrook says he anticipates the community will welcome the change. “Since first opening our doors in 1980, this hospital has cared for hundreds of thousands of people and we look forward to continuing to provide high quality and compassionate care as Buderim Private Hospital,” Mr Westbrook says.

MOTORING

SUNSHINE COAST MOTORING ICON HITS 25-YEAR MILESTONE Pacific Motor Group stalwart Les Evangelista celebrates a successful career in the industry.

P

acific Motor Group salesperson Les Evangelista has this month celebrated 25 years of dedicated service to the Sunshine Coast dealership. Affectionately known as ‘Bro,’ Mr Evangelista has made a significant contribution to the Sunshine Coast business community over the years and earned his way into the hearts of the many locals he has worked with. Mr Evangelista joined the motor industry after a serious work-related accident back in 1992 while working as a builder. This opened the door to his new career where he began selling and demonstrating the new Ford Laser, Telstar, Maverick and EB Falcon. The majority of Mr Evangelista’s early motoring career was served at the old Pacific Ford site at Kunda Park where over many years, his hard work earned him the respect and loyalty of many customers. Twenty-five years later, Mr Evangelista is now based at the Maroochydore branch, still selling to some of his original

Les Stalwart today, and right, at the beginning of his career with Pacific Motor Group customers and the next generation of their families. His son Nathan has proudly followed in his father’s footsteps, clocking up 15 years of working for the Pacific Motor Group company, picking up a few tips from how his Dad has established himself within the local business community. “He is reliable and gets the job done

promptly,’’ he says. “As far as contributing to the Sunshine Coast community, he pretty much handles them the same way as business, hence why he is now selling to the next generation of families on the Coast.” As well as selling cars, Mr Evangelista has been a long-term representative for Pacific Motor Group and has helped

sponsor events such as Muay Thai for the Sunshine Coast Thai Boxing Centre. His work has been greatly appreciated by many and was recognised with a modest celebration for the 25-year milestone with a cake and a speech. This month marks a proud moment for “Bro” as he celebrates 25 years at Pacific Motor Group.

GEMINI (May 22-Jun 21)

CANCER (Jun 22-Jul 23)

Mercury is backtracking through your travel zone until Christmas. So expect some misunderstandings involving commuting and/or holiday plans. Wednesday and Thursday are fabulous for knuckling down and completing unfinished business.

Gung-ho Mars races into your romance zone on Saturday. It’s time to bite the bullet and patch up a partnership problem. If you want the relationship to grow in positive ways, then you’ll have to be the catalyst! Singles – you’ll have to be proactive.

Expect some communication chaos over the next three weeks, as mischievous Mercury (your patron planet) reverses through your relationship zone. An unresolved issue from the past could also be dredged up all over again.

Mercury is now in retrograde mode until December 23. So it’s not a good time to start new projects or solve tricky problems. Expect disruptions involving computers or phones. Over the next few weeks, you can look forward to a creativity surge.

VIRGO (Aug 24-Sep 23)

LIBRA (Sep 24-Oct 23)

SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)

Even though communication planet Mercury is retro, strive to keep communication flowing with friends and colleagues. A flexible attitude and a diplomatic approach will help you cope with any frustrating disruptions over the next three weeks.

With Mercury reversing through your home zone, expect some domestic dramas over the next three weeks. The more fussy and fastidious you are, the more annoying the problems will be. Try to relax and go with the (sometimes disrupted) flow.

Be careful what you put on social media this month. It will be easy for others to misinterpret your true meaning. There’s potential for a serious communication problem this week, when Saturn and retrograde Mercury pair up in your texting zone.

With mighty Mars moving through your sign – until January 26 – it’s time to become as motivated and proactive as possible. Capitalise on the extra energy surge while it lasts! But remember that Mercury is in retrograde motion until December 23.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)

CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)

AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)

PISCES (Feb 20-Mar 20)

With Mercury reversing through your sign, expect some communication chaos this month. The best way to handle hiccups and hassles? With plenty of patience and Sagittarian style. Action-planet Mars moves into your seclusion zone on Saturday.

It’s a suitable week to revise and reboot as Mercury is now retrograde. Courageous Mars moves through your hopes and wishes zone from Saturday until January 26. So it’s important to dream a dream; turn it into a goal; and then make it happen.

This week a long-cherished dream may need to be re-imagined and reworked so that it better suits your current situation. Rather than seeing it as a disappointing setback, smart Aquarians will perceive it as an exciting new challenge.

Over the next three weeks, retrograde Mercury could cause problems in your professional zone. So do your best to be clear and concise with colleagues, clients and/ or customers. You’re full of fabulous ideas but quit procrastinating Pisces!

BRINGING URBAN CHIC TO MAROOCHYDORE

A long-time Maroochydore family has banded together to create a spectacular new development that harnesses their love for the area.

A

Maroochydore development is giving new meaning to the term ‘out with the old and in with the new’, with the Gill family eagerly awaiting the transformation of their long-held family properties into one of the Sunshine Coast’s first urban renewal hotspots, The Rhythm on Beach. While owners Irene Gill and her son Allen ‘Jim’ Gill have now moved into a care facility, Jim’s wife Marcia and daughter Debbie have called Beach Road home for many years and their time-honoured houses are set to make way for brand new, architecturally designed apartments. Marcia says she grew up on the Sunshine Coast and had lived by the Maroochy River for decades, so she felt a deep connection to the area. “Maroochydore has this way of developing a hold on you, and its charm makes it a place that you always want to come back to, no matter how many years have passed,” Ms Gill says. “This was also very much the case for my husband and his parents, who all lived and worked locally. My mother-inlaw, Irene, actually worked at the Swan Bowls Club in Anzac Avenue for 36 years, so much of her life has been spent as part of the Maroochydore community.” Ms Gill says the two Beach Road properties undergoing urban renewal had been in the family for 65 and 48 years respectively. “There’s something nice about paying homage to my family’s heritage and remaining on the site, while also turning over a new leaf and really embracing The Rhythm on

Beach’s urban city design,” she says. “I love that I’ll be able to see the water from my balcony and can still visit friends at the nearby Bowls Club or even head out for a coffee without needing to get in the car.” Ms Gill will move into an eighth-floor apartment with

views of the Maroochy River, while daughter Debbie will take up residence in a two-bedroom apartment on level six. She said The Rhythm on Beach had struck the Gill family as the perfect offering for breathing new life into their beloved patch. “After purchasing the land and watching the Sunshine Coast expand over the years, my husband’s parents recognised their properties were ideally located for commercial enterprise or residential units,” she says. “We were always aware of the site’s potential but as a family, we knew it was important to wait until the right development came along to really do it justice.” Maroochydore Urban Renewal managing director and developer of The Rhythm on Beach, Matthew Stanley, says the Gills’ decision to take up residence at the new development is testament to both the project and the first-rate location and lifestyle the area afforded. continued page 46>

Business owner / Principal

ulti award-winning Sunshine Coast agent Lee Sutherland of Leading Realty, has just added another milestone to his industry achievements, making the coveted 2017 A List; one of only 150 agents throughout the state, to be named on this prestigious list. In its fifth consecutive year, the A List, is determined by sales data from national industry analysts Pricefinder, whose data reveals that one in eight Queensland properties were sold by an A-Lister in 2016. A List awards spokesperson Ashleigh Molden says these awards reveal the best agents in Queensland, and that it is a great achievement to be named, and a testament to the hard work and professionalism of each agent listed. “There are lots of awards in the real estate industry, but the A List stands heads and shoulders above any other award, as it compares agents from all agency groups using their sales data. An agent cannot nominate or be nominated by a third party for this award,” Ms Molden says. The list of 150 agents is spread across every market in Queensland using sales data from the 16,500 registered salespeople

based on three criteria: sales, value of sales, and the number of listings for the previous calendar year. Pricefinder’s analysis reveals that A-Listers make up just 2.2 per cent of all active agents, but they sold 12.4 per cent of all Queensland properties in 2016. A-Listers averaged 45 sales per year, as opposed to seven by the average salesperson. The average sales person in Queensland had a total sales value of $3.6million but A-Listers averaged a total sales value of $23 million during 2016. Mr Sutherland works for Leading Realty in Mooloolaba and began his career in 2010 and services the whole of the Sunshine Coast, along the coastal strip and hinterland.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

OK peeps, I hope you got some waves last Sunday? There were some fun reports across the Coast on sunrise. Remember, the early bird scores the barrels. Apart from that it has been pretty slim pickings. I was having conversation with a fellow explorer and he was talking up Taiwan. This time of year is the season for waves… interesting. It looks like you can get there for $1200 return. I’m just planting the seed of possibility. And, there are no volcanoes to shut down the airports. Locally, there are some waves around but with north winds. Pipeline showdown starts in one week. Let’s hope for massive swell. Enjoy.
