FROM THE EDITOR

Established in 2000, Mukti Organics is one of Australia’s leading eco-luxe, certified organic skincare brands. The Sunshine Coast-based company prides itself on organic certification, which assures the products will nourish and protect your body and create minimal impact on the natural environment. Mukti Organics has kindly given us three Bioactive Body Duo packs to give away. Each is valued at $179.95 and includes a Bioactive Body Elixir and Polish Dynamic Duo. The products target cellulite, stretch marks and skin imperfections.

A

s far as I know, the closest I have stood to a shark is from behind the safety of a solid glass panel. There was also that time in Fiji when a curious and harmless baby reef shark thought it would be fun to sneak up on me. My husband says he has never seen me move so fast. He still laughs about it to this day. Call me crazy, but there is something about those white pointy teeth and those beady eyes that make me want to stay away. And yet, I’ve never been one to shy away from the ocean. Like many people, I put my faith in the beach patrols, swim between the flags and try not to think about it. As the debate continues to rage about the best method to deter sharks, sensational claims and scare tactics have come to the surface. This can do more damage than good. Our beaches are our lifeblood, they are an integral part of our culture, of our identity, and they are worth celebrating. Let’s use our common sense – enjoy the beaches safely and trust that the experts and officials will work together to keep swimmers safe, while having minimum impact on wildlife. This week Leigh Robshaw explores the topic in our cover story on page 14. From the sea to the sand, we also chat with the inspiring Dennis Massoud. The Coast resident may be legally blind, but he has established himself as one of the world’s most successful and celebrated sand sculptors. Happy reading.

QUICK CHAT

INSPIRING GREATNESS Where do you live? Mooloolaba. First job? Beauty therapist. I’ve always been a real ‘girly girl’ and it seemed like the most natural career choice when I first left school. What are you currently working on? I’m authoring two books at the moment along with managing some national contracts focused on women in leadership. Your family includes. . . My partner Matt, my two gorgeous fur babies, Jet and Sophie, also of course, the best mum and dad in the world. I’m sure my older brother and sister would agree. First car? A little yellow mini. It was the cutest little canary on the road. Favourite book? A Course in Miracles is my go-to book and I’ve been an avid student of this philosophy for nearly 20 years now. What are you reading now? I usually have three or four books going at any one time: Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr Joe Dispenza, Polishing the Mirror by Ram Dass for the second time, and also Finding Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.

speaker

BIO As one of Australia’s most experienced speakers, lecturers and workshop leaders, Carren Smith is committed to the pursuit of human potential across the globe. Using her experiences as a survivor of the 2002 Bali bombings, an ambassador for the prevention of suicide, a humanitarian, author and entrepreneur, her powerful message is spread worldwide to move and inspire people to master the inner game of life.

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? When I left my husband at the age of 24 after just 12 months of marriage. It’s always stood out to me as a momentous day because I chose the kind of life I was willing to live and abuse, violence and suffering was NOT going to be the story of my life. I think it set the tone for the strength I discovered in myself when my partner committed suicide as well as my survival through the Bali bombing later in my life. Your greatest regret? Not doing singing lessons when I was younger.

“I have been fearful of sharks, so recently I started ocean swimming”

Favourite song? I’m a bit fickle with my music because I love a lot of different styles. All I Ask by Adele is up there, Let it Go by James Bay and The Prayer by Andrea Bocelli.

Carren Smith

standing ovation and encore, I was so very humbled, honoured and felt so blessed.

Best advice you’ve been given? When I was a kid, my sister’s boyfriend said, “Be kind to your mother, don’t take drugs and never eat yellow snow.” What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? Mooloolaba Beach and also my house. It’s small and cosy and it’s filled with love If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? P-A-R-K-I-N-G. It’s so frustrating! Best day in your life? When I stood in front of 2500 for the first time on stage in San Francisco. It was an experience I’d dreamed of, and as a speaker to receive a

What achievement are you most proud of? Overcoming the challenges of my life and working with people around the world. You are happiest when? I’m on stage. There is no better feeling than to be completely tuned in and turned on to thousands of people at once.

What frustrates you the most? Fear and guilt. I see it in myself from time to time and in others and they are the most debilitating and destructive human emotions that are always based on the past or the future. How do you deal with your frustrations? I accept they are present. We can’t reconcile what we are in resistance to. I look to what the direct opposite of the emotion is, and use it as a tool to inspire me to find new solutions to the problem. I have been fearful of sharks, so recently I started ocean swimming. Now for me, the direct opposite of the fear is gratitude for the ocean I get to swim in. Advice to your 18-year-old self? Stop trying so hard. You get there anyway. NRL or AFL? Ballet (LOL).

COVER STORY

ON THE SAFE SIDE As locals and visitors flock to Sunshine Coast beaches, the debate on how to safeguard swimmers and surfers from shark attacks continues. My Weekly Preview talks to those tasked with protecting beachgoers, our oceans, and the animals that live there. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

“In the last 55 years, only one person has lost their life to a shark at a protected Queensland beach” Minister Mark Furner

replace lethal drum lines with Shark Management Alert in Real Time (SMART) drum lines – which are not designed to kill sharks, but allow them to be caught, tagged for study and released alive. It also recommended phasing out shark nets, which are typically only 186 metres long with a depth of six metres, allowing sharks to swim around and underneath. Sunshine Coast shark expert Tony Isaacson is a marine educator who believes sharks are greatly misunderstood, saying sensationalised media portrayals of sharks do them, and the public, a great disservice. “When a shark makes a mistake, it’s in the

Backshall, on the Coast last week for his Deadly 60 Downunder show, echoes these sentiments: “Unfortunately, shark attacks appeal to our sense of the macabre and the sense of the sensational,” he says. “If you have a shark attack in Australia, it makes front page news in the UK. It’s a sensational story so those attacks have a greater impact on the national psyche and international psyche than another form of human fatal incident. The reality is the attacks on human beings is very low and mortality is impossibly low. “I really hope the people in Queensland and on the Sunshine Coast can see their way clear to using more modern, less mortal ways

ow Australians can safely enjoy the pleasures of the ocean alongside its apex predator is a barbecue stopping debate that stirs both fear and fascination in the Australian psyche. On one side of the debate are those who believe the only good shark is a dead one. On the other, those who think sharks deserve a fair go – after all, the ocean is their home. Then there are those who fall somewhere in the middle – beachgoers who view the deaths of sharks and bycatch caught in nets and on lethal drum lines in shark culling programs as a necessary evil. It’s a small price to pay for peace of mind at the beach. But that view is misguided, according to a recent Senate report, which says the shark control programs in Queensland and New South Wales are outdated and ineffective, give a false sense of security and result in an unacceptable number of deaths of marine species, many endangered or threatened. Sea Life Trust estimates for every one potentially dangerous shark caught in the nets, the number of non-target, nondangerous animals caught is about 20. The organisation says between 1962 and 2014, the Queensland Shark Control Program ensnared and entangled 84,800 marine creatures on drum lines and in shark nets. The Senate inquiry into shark mitigation and deterrent measures (December 2017) recommended the Queensland and New South Wales governments immediately

Mr Isaacson has devoted his life to studying the behaviour of sharks around the world. With multiple awards under his belt,

he has been acknowledged for his commitment to shark advocacy and raising awareness of the critical role sharks play in maintaining healthy oceans. He champions new technologies that could supersede nets and drum lines and give us better protection, while conserving marine species. But he’s frustrated by what he sees as an archaic Queensland shark control program and unwillingness by the government to ramp up support for non-lethal technologies. “I have the luxury of being an independent marine educator,” he says. “What I’m seeing is a hesitation to spend any money on technologies that might be observed from a distance and proven elsewhere while we watch. I think that’s an inappropriate thing for us to do while Australian companies are developing state-of-the-art technology that can and will save lives, and cover a far greater area than nets and not endanger marine life.” Mr Isaacson is currently in the Bahamas, where shark diving tourism injects $US113 million (about $143 million) into the economy annually. He’s on a self-funded trip trialling a number of non-lethal shark deterrent devices and has captured on video 100 per cent effectiveness of e-Shark Force and No Shark electronic bracelets deterring bull sharks over a number of days in Bimini. Accompanying Mr Isaacson on the trip is Richard Talmage, from West Australian company Smart Marine Systems, which makes a device called Clever Buoy. Described myweeklypreview.com.au

as a ‘virtual shark net’, it uses multi-beam sonar technology to identify when a shark enters a beach, coupled with software that gives the beach patrol real-time messages. Beach authorities can track the shark and decide whether to clear the beach or send a drone or surf rescue team out to investigate. “Management at Sunshine Coast Council has expressed an interest in a demonstration,” Mr Isaacson says, adding that he has seen Clever Buoy’s sonar signatures of great whites entering a beach at Hawks Nest in New South Wales. The device was implemented at the World Surfing Titles in J-Bay, South Africa this year to avoid a repeat of the Mick Fanning incident, and will be used in California and Florida this year. The New South Wales Department of Primary Industries trialled Clever Buoy at Bondi Beach and plans to conduct further trials. The Western Australian Government provided $500,000 to support a Clever Buoy trial from December 2016 to March 2017, with the results under review. The Queensland Government has made no commitment to investing in trials of Clever Buoy or any other non-lethal shark mitigation device. It’s sticking with it’s $3.5-million a year shark control program, which it says is working just fine. “The Palaszczuk Government remains steadfast in our support for the Shark Control Program,” says Queensland Agricultural Development and Fisheries Minister Mark Furner. “It has undoubtedly saved lives. That’s why it will continue. “In the last 55 years, only one person has lost their life to a shark at a protected Queensland beach. Based on the evidence to date, traditional capture methods remain the most effective measures to reduce the risk of a shark attack. If new technologies are shown to be effective in preventing marine life fatalities and are practical for use, they will be considered by the Shark Control Program.” Surf Life Saving Queensland regional manager Aaron Purchase agrees: “Our priority is people’s safety and we support the current program, given it has a good track record in Queensland. However, we are open to ideas that will improve it. We are aware

• Swim or surf only at patrolled beaches and between the flags • Obey lifesavers’ and lifeguards’ advice, and heed all safety warnings • Do not swim or surf after dusk, at night or before dawn when sharks are most active • Do not swim or surf in murky waters • Do not swim in or near mouths of estuaries, artificial canals and lakes • Never swim alone • Never swim when bleeding • Do not swim near schools of fish or where fish are being cleaned • Do not swim near or interfere with shark control equipment • Do not swim with animals.

there are trials of various technologies that are trying to achieve the same outcome of keeping sharks away from people. If one of those is proved to be effective, we’re open to that, but it would have to be proven first. We always come back to our message of swim between the flags.” From 2009, Fisheries Queensland invested $125,000 into research to better understand the behaviour of large sharks. “This research strategy is being developed through the Shark Control Program Scientific Working Group, which was established to improve the program’s effectiveness and reduce impacts on bycatch,” a Fisheries spokesperson says. “The Scientific Working Group is also exploring alternative shark control technologies.” But Mr Isaacson says the Queensland Government is not doing enough: “A wait and see approach is not a commitment to actively trial and evaluate new technologies at

e

u q i t u o b v o

Queensland beaches and managed waterways,” he says. He also says signs at Sunshine Coast waterways like Lake Kawana need to be upgraded to explicitly state that dangerous bull sharks inhabit those waters. Striped surfboards and wetsuits, drones with special shark-spotting capabilities and Eco Shark Barriers, which are made from nylon and are designed to restrict sharks without killing non-target species are among some of the non-lethal options that could be trialled locally. The West Australian Government has taken a new approach to shark mitigation after a 2014 trial of drum lines caught 200 sharks, none of them the target species – great white sharks. It has invested more than $33 million on a broad range of strategies. One such strategy is to offer a rebate of $200 for Shark Shield FREEDOM7, a device worn on the ankle that emits a threedimensional electrical field that repels sharks – even great whites – and is proving popular with surfers, divers and anglers. A Queensland Fisheries spokesperson says, “The Queensland Government will monitor the results from the subsidy trial to determine if this program would be effective if implemented in Queensland.” Shark Shield has received private investment of $10 million over 15 years and Clever Buoy $2 to $3 million, but the makers of both products say they are amazed at how little interest they’ve received from local, state or federal governments. Eighty-five of Queensland’s beaches contain nets or drum lines and 24 beaches along the Sunshine Coast have a combination of 75 drum lines and 14 nets. The program has been supported by successive governments since 1962, but their effectiveness is difficult to evaluate, as 83 per cent of drum lines are deployed at locations where a fatal attack has never occurred. Also, shark attack statistics don’t take into account the absence of shark bites at beaches that do not feature nets or drum lines. Those in favour of continuing the current program point to New South Wales as proof of its effectiveness. In the shark meshing

program area (SMP) from Newcastle to Wollongong between 1995 and 2015, 25 incidents occurred, comprising encounters that resulted in injuries and those that did not. Between September 2014 and October 2016, the non-SMP Byron Bay to Yamba coastline experienced 18 encounters, including two fatalities. So that’s 25 in 20 years compared with 17 in two years. But a review of the program in 2009 noted that 23 shark encounters had occurred at meshed beaches and 40 per cent of sharks trapped in nets were found on the beach side. Mr Isaacson suggests the reason for the heightened number of attacks in northern New South Wales isn’t due to an absence of nets, but whale burials on the beach, which attract sharks when their oils, liquids and blood leak into the water, and while drum lines and nets remove some of the sharks, more will come to take their place. The Senate report concluded: “Despite the many arguments and counter-arguments that can be made about the effectiveness of lethal measures, fundamentally, it is impossible to determine whether there would have been a higher number of deaths if they were not in place. Nevertheless… it can be concluded that it is impossible for lethal shark control measures to guarantee public safety. Relying on outdated approaches from the 1930s that are not backed by science would not be tolerated in other areas of public safety. The committee… is of the view that it is necessary to carefully consider the effectiveness of alternative approaches.” Tony Isaacson has a simple message: “The safest and best option for every recreational family at the beach is to swim between the flags.” He adds, “I’m in agreement with the Fisheries minister. He has said the shark control program must continue because it definitely saves lives. I agree 100 per cent with those statements. However, the shark control program needs to have a quantum shift from lethal technologies to non-lethal technologies. I would like to think the shark control program delivers no human fatalities in my lifetime or my children’s lifetime. That would be my aim.”

IT’S A HARD KNOCK LIFE Organisers of a Sunshine Coast web series are calling for creative locals to get involved. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

A

uditions and casting are underway for a new web series that will be filmed and produced entirely on the Sunshine Coast. Hard Knock Life is a sitcom that follows Ella, Maddy and Callum, a group of friends living on the Coast, and each episode sees them recount their past and present experiences on love, life and relationships with relatable comedic twists. Creator Laree Gadenne says the series has been sitting at the back of her mind for a few years and it was the assistance of a $7000 Regional Arts Development Fund grant from the Queensland Government and Sunshine Coast Council that helped kickstart the process of bringing the script to life. “One day I was sitting and thinking about it and had a bit of time on my hands, so I told myself I needed to put these ideas down. I started writing, and it just flowed out of me so easily,” she says. “If it’s meant to be, it happens for you naturally.” The 30-year-old multitalented performer started out in the industry at the age of five and in 2013 was selected to represent Australia at the World Championships of Performing Arts in Hollywood. After winning gold and silver medals, she received a prestigious 12-month scholarship to train at Millennium Dance Complex in Los Angeles with the world’s best dancers and choreographers including those who work for Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Usher and Justin Bieber. She then went on to London for two years, where she

Hard Knock Life creator Laree Gadenne featured in various commercials, TV series and movies, including The Royals, The Weekend and Breathe as well as Netflix’s Black Mirror and rekindled her passion for acting. Ms Gadenne says her latest project, Hard Knock Life, will provide an opportunity for local actors and production crew to gain experience at home and not have to travel afield. “I wanted to create something on the Sunshine Coast

because I was born and raised here and there has never been a lot of opportunity for local actors or entertainers to be involved in something so professional locally,” she says. “This will help them to gain experience and exposure to take them to the next level as well as showcase our region and the paradise that we live in.” Auditions will begin next week, with lead characters and up to 50 extras, some with speaking roles, to be cast. Ms Gadenne says they are looking for people aged between 20 and 40. Having saved substantially herself to bring the project to life, Ms Gadenne says the RADF grant was a welcome boost and she has had a flood of support from the local industry, with JF Records already taking on a huge role in the five-part series. With the added support of future sponsorships, Ms Gadenne says they will broadcast on a YouTube channel as well as enter local, national and international film festivals and will reach out to national and international TV networks to push the series further. “We’re aiming high,” she says. “We’re hoping to have filming and editing done by July, so we can start on the film festival circuit, which kicks off in September. We’ll have five episodes to start with and we hope to continue and film a whole season.”

PROFILE

TAKING SHAPE An impromptu morning at the beach with his son ignited this professional sand sculptor’s creative passion. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.

D

ennis Massoud remembers the day his career as a world-champion sand artist really began. The long-time Noosa local owned a photographic company with his brother-in-law and was working seven days a week, and sometimes 12 hours a day. “I was running out of my house in Noosa one day with camera bags under each arm,” he says. “My eldest son Luke was three or four at the time. He was sitting in the lounge watching Sesame Street and as I ran past he held his hand up and said, ‘bye Dad’. He looked really sad. I was sitting in the car choking back tears, thinking I could have a really good photographic business but not see my family. I went back upstairs and said to him, ‘From now on when I come home from a Friday to a Sunday morning, it’s our time. Just you and me. It’s going to be a special time.’ “On that very first day I asked him, ‘it’s your day, what do you want to do?’ He said he wanted to go to Tea Tree Bay in Noosa National Park and build things in the sand.” Luke never tired of sand sculpting with his dad, and would instruct him to make lions, castles and mermaids. People began to gather around and throw money in the water bucket. “He was excited and told me I didn’t have to be a photographer anymore. I thought it was a joke, but eventually I realised I could make money from busking.” Mr Massoud, whose family settled in Noosa in 1900, spent his childhood collecting coloured sand from Noosa North Shore to put in bottles and sell in tourist shops. While his father and uncle took people on coloured sand tours, Mr Massoud would carve faces into the sand dunes. “That’s when I unconsciously got into sand sculpting – when I was seven,” he says. But it was Luke’s prompting years later that changed the course of Mr Massoud’s life. He has now been a full-time professional sand sculptor for 28 years and has travelled the world. He won the world championships in Denmark in 2003 and has taken on incredible projects. The most prestigious was when a sheikh in Abu Dhabi paid him $US2000 (more than $2500) a day to sculpt Arabian forts and do workshops with children. In September last year he was commissioned to build a sand hotel complete with a five-star luxury bedroom, an eight-bed hostel-style bunk room, bars, sun decks, lounges

One of Dennis Massoud’s incredible creations and a DJ platform on the Gold Coast. And it wasn’t just for show – 30 people stayed in it over a three-day period. Known as the Sandman, Mr Massoud’s achievements are all the more incredible when you learn about his disabilities. “Ever since I’ve been sand sculpting I’ve been vision impaired,” he says. “My vision was affected when I was 15 – one eye from an injury and another eye from an acid burn. I’m totally blind in my right eye and have partial vision in my left. “One job I really enjoyed was the Louis Braille’s 200-year celebration,” he says. “I worked with a lady to devise a way where people who are totally blind could participate in creating a sand sculpture. We wanted to create massive braille

dots on the beach that could be seen from the air and photographed from a helicopter. They were going to read ‘braille rocks’. I got together with a guy who does acrylic moulds and had holes cut into them where vision impaired people could place the sand in and compact it and feel what they created.” Mr Massoud isn’t just a man of Dennis Massoud outstanding artistic talent, he’s also a man of great heart. He has been an environmental activist for most of his life and has spent years campaigning against inappropriate development in Noosa. “There were 20-storey buildings proposed for both sides of Hastings Street that we objected to,” he says. “They wanted an IMAX theatre, a theme park, tour booking office and restaurant to seat 164 people and it was approved by the Joh [BjelkePetersen] government. I worked for 10 years and collected 1.5 million signatures. We formed a team called the Noosa National Park Team and I was the team leader. “We always have to be ever vigilant,” he says. “Things are still changing, places are still being eroded. It’s the nibbling effect people have to be aware of. Years ago it was obvious when someone would go and clear 150 hectares of melaleuca swamp – that’s what happened at Noosa Waters. Now they have a different approach. They’ll clear a little bit, develop a little bit, clear a little bit. It’s the boiled frog syndrome. While Mr Massoud says he’s won some and lost some in his environmental battles to keep Noosa’s natural environment pristine, sand sculpting has taught him to let go of what he can’t control. “Part of the intrigue for me is this is an ephemeral art. It’s not permanent. For me as an environmental activist, seeing all the changes in Noosa that really disturbed me emotionally and mentally, sand sculpture has helped me let go of these things I can’t change. With sand sculpting, you just walk away. If everybody can realise they’ve done their best and let things go that are really annoying them or upsetting them, they’ll really find inner joy and happiness.”

f the thought of fish marinated in butter, ginger and citrus marmalade with a green chilli and macadamia toffee dressing is making your mouth water, you might want to get down to the Ginger Flower & Food Festival this weekend. Spirit House head chef Tom Swapp will be cooking up this delicious meal in a demonstration on both Saturday and Sunday as part of a host of activities that will indulge the senses. This will be the second time Mr Swapp has appeared at the festival and he is looking forward to joining the likes of Matt Golinski, Josh Smallwood, Cath Manuel, Paul Plant, Kim Taylor and Dr Tim Heard to showcase ginger at its best through cooking demonstrations and presentations as well as celebrate 75 years of Buderim Ginger. Mr Swapp’s fish recipe is not something you would find on the Spirit House’s award-winning menu – it is one he has created just for the Ginger Festival. “The dressing is very south-east Asian and the trick with cooking that style of food is getting the balance of hot, salty, sour and sweet just right,” he says. Whipping up creative dishes that showcase fresh, local produce while transporting the palates of diners to exotic places like Thailand and Cambodia has become second nature for Mr Swapp, who joined Spirit House in 2014. The 34-year-old has had a successful culinary career including stints at Brisbane’s Alchemy and Gordon Ramsay’s Maze Grill in Melbourne. “The biggest challenge in my job is working hard to maintain the reputation that [Spirit House] already has. Being consistent is part of the reason why it continues to win awards,” he says. “It is a family-owned business and there is a mentality with the staff that we are all family, so people enjoy working there, people enjoy coming to eat there and it really is a beautiful spot.” Mr Swapp says designing recipes for chefs is very different to writing recipes for home cooks, which was a new process he

Chef Tom Swapp went through in the lead-up to his first cooking demonstration at the Ginger Festival. “I am so used to cooking for a full house of 100 to 120 people, and writing recipes for trained chefs to follow, so it was a whole new process to think about recipes that people at home would use to cook for two or four,” he says. “I always get in trouble at home for cooking far too much. My partner says I can’t cook for less 10 even if it’s just for the two of us. So this process has given me a bit more insight and it’s a handy skill for me to have to be able to think about recipes from two different sides.” Being surrounded by ginger every working day, Mr Swapp knows a thing or two about the versatility of the product and says it’s a zero-waste ingredient. “We peel the ginger and cut it finely for salads, then can use the peel for soups and stocks so no ginger ever goes into the bin,” he says. While food is a big component of the festival, it is also a magnet for gardeners, with an exquisite range of ornamental gingers and heliconias, which thrive in the Sunshine Coast’s sub-tropical conditions. An array of more than 3000 plants will be available for sale to festival goers and live entertainment coupled with the popular rides means there will be plenty to enjoy at the 22nd annual festival.

The Ginger Flower & Food Festival is on January 19 to 21 at The Ginger Factory in Yandina. Entry to the park and gardens is free. For festival timetable, visit gingerfactory.com.au. myweeklypreview.com.au

WHAT TO DO WITH WESTFIELD

W

e have been positive on Westfield (WFD) shares for some time now and were heartened by the December announcement that French property giant Unibail-Rodamco (UL) was making a takeover bid for the company. However, the bid is somewhat complex in that WFD shareholders will receive the following: • 0.01844 Unibail-Rodamco shares • $US2.67 in cash In addition, the retail technology platform called OneMarket (formerly known as Westfield Labs and Westfield Retail Solutions) will be spun off into a new ASX listed company which will be 90 per cent owned by WFD shareholders (on a pro-rata basis). Given that Unibail shares are listed in Europe, there are three variables that affect the implied value of the offer, being the UL share price, and the AUDEUR and the AUDUSD exchange rates. At the time of the announcement in December, we estimated the implied value for WFD shares was $10.14. However, since that time, the weakness in the UL share price and worsening exchange rates means the implied value has now dropped to $9.53. The drop in the implied value highlights the complexity of the bid. While we are happy that Unibail sees value in the Westfield portfolio we do not feel it has tabled a “knockout offer”. We believe that the US retail giant Simon Property Group

WINNING INDUSTRIES IN 2018 As Australian companies welcome the new year, IBISWorld’s business information analysts have revealed the top five industries expected to grow in 2017-18.

(SPG) is the most likely candidate to potentially lodge a competing bid for Westfield. SPG has a stronger balance sheet than Unibail and hence would be able to offer more cash to WFD shareholders. This would likely be attractive to WFDs Australian shareholders and gives more certainty. The biggest challenge for SPG however is its relatively high cost of equity. Having run the numbers we feel that SPG could potentially offer $10 per share in a 50 per cent cash/50 per cent shares deal. This would be earnings neutral for SPG shareholders. While it would result in increased leverage for SPG, we feel this would be offset by a significant improvement in its portfolio quality and

“Overall, it would probably be best to wait to see how the takeover plays out” more development opportunities in the medium to long term. Other potential bidders are sovereign wealth funds such as GIC (Singapore), CPPIB (Canada) or Norges (Norway) or a group of funds. Overall, it would probably be best to wait to see how the takeover plays out. Hopefully we will see a recovery in the UL share price or potentially a competing bid that would unlock more value for WFD investors.

IBISWorld anticipates that sports and recreation facilities operation, dairy cattle farming, petroleum exploration and nature reserves and conservation parks will round out the top five best performers. Revenue in the sports and recreational industry is expected to grow by 9.3 per cent in 2017-18, to reach $1.6 billion. IBISWorld anticipates this year’s Gold Coast Commonwealth Games will play a huge part in boosting this sector with several new purpose-built facilities coming into play. The Sunshine Coast is also expected to benefit from the flow-on effect of the Games. Around 500 athletes, training staff and supporters will stay on Coast in preparation for the event with an estimated contribution of up to $1.5 million to the local economy.

FROM THE MAYOR

We live in a magnificent part of the world and while we’re lucky to enjoy all the Sunshine Coast has to offer year round, the summer holidays really highlight how fortunate we are. Many thousands of people have again visited our region to enjoy our wonders of nature, beachside culture, hiking, fresh local food and bucket list experiences. And why wouldn’t they – these are the things a relaxing summer break are made of. The picnic shelters, barbecues and playgrounds in our stunning natural areas make it even easier to enjoy time with family and friends. Just in the weeks before Christmas, we completed 10 new playgrounds – some upgrades, some brand new – and more will soon be underway. Our New Year’s Eve event at Mooloolaba was also a highlight of the holidays – it was a great event enjoyed by both local and visiting families. I know our community is as passionate about our wonderful lifestyle as I am. I hope as you get back into the routine of work and school, you continue to make time to enjoy everything our healthy, smart and creative region has to offer all year round.

MY OPINION

BACK TO SCHOOL BLUES

READ ALL ABOUT IT

Sami Muirhead laments the passing of the school holidays but is cheered by the prospect of binge watching Netflix series, The Crown.

Richard O’Leary had some amazing adventures during the holidays – from New York to Denmark, all without leaving the couch.

I

am devastated my middle boy is starting Prep even though I pretend it’s the most exciting adventure our family has ever embarked upon. I really want to cry and beg him to watch Play School with me forever. So as my emotions run amok at the thought of my son starting school, I am equally as overwhelmed by the morning hell that is about to be unleashed. You accuse me of being melodramatic? Well let me tell you, mornings in our house are bedlam. No matter how much I prep the night before and make lunches, pack bags, find hats, write love notes to sneak in my kids’ lunch (yes, I really do), find socks, locate missing library books and do about a dozen other jobs, the mornings just seem to explode, and I explode with stress. As I am trying to herd my wild kids out the door, they decide it’s the perfect time to upend the box of Lego or play a game of hide and seek. Term one is here. How are we going to actually be dressed and out the door by 7.30am? For the last month we have actually slowed down and achieved our humble goals of eating peanut butter smothered on toast in bed most mornings, before we eventually move with sloth-like speed and crawl to the beach or our local river to just chill. Chill is a word my children are not familiar with, as we go hard and fast during the term with way too much on all our plates, but chill has been exactly what we needed to bond and breath. It’s been a

beautiful break filled with vitamin ‘sea’ and lazy days in paradise. The kids have played in their bedrooms. They have grown in height like wild desert weeds and I have just grown in width. We have seen friends we neglect all year long. And I have eaten my body weight in mangoes and hot chips. Don’t get me wrong, there have been days my kids have fought like cats and dogs, but I would take having them on holidays and close to me every time. I am processing these thoughts at the same time as bingeing on Netflix’s The Crown. The late sister of Queen Elizabeth 11 knew how to brunch before smashed avocado and lattes became fashionable. Recent publications about Margaret state the princess would wake about 9am and spend the next two hours there reading and drinking and chain smoking, before having a one-hour bubble bath. If I had zero responsibilities and endless money, I think this is how I would really like to spend my mornings (minus the chain smoking). Good old party gal Mags would then spend quite a time doing her hair and makeup and getting dressed before whirling downstairs in the palace to have a ‘vodka pick-me-up’ at midday and then a long lunch with the Queen Mother. Her afternoons and nights were filled with horse riding, parties and visiting celebrities. I salute you Princess Mags and will be simultaneously cursing you next week when the school run belts me hard and fast.

I

’ve just returned from holidays and I’m exhausted. I think I tried to fit too much into my fortnight. The first character I called upon was an ex-school teacher called Olive Kitteridge who lives in a coastal town in Maine, north of New York. How can I describe Olive? Outspoken. Critical. Misanthropic. But it’s difficult to not like her because under that tough exterior hides a deep vulnerability, which can’t help but emerge despite her best efforts. Unfortunately I only had a few days with Olive as I was lucky enough to get an invite to hang out with Nobel Prize winner for behavioural economics, Daniel Kahneman. Daniel is an interesting bloke, a senior scholar at Princeton University who has a really different take on life. While we relaxed in air-conditioning, he talked about the human condition, in particular how we live our lives through the utilisation of System 1 and System 2. The former is fast, intuitive thinking while the latter is slow, rational thinking. He says these systems explain why we’re more likely to believe something in a bold typeface, and why judges are more likely to deny parole before lunch. It was fascinating stuff, but my brain was going into meltdown after spending a few sessions with the professor, so I needed some light relief. I was on holidays, after all. My rescuer came in the form of journo

and keen gambler Helen Thomas, who took me along with her as she tried to become a professional punter for six weeks. Remarkably, her publisher stumped up $20,000 to get her started. She lost more than she won, but what a ride. I also went walkabout with the Aborigines of the western deserts of Central Australia, met the Bog People of Denmark

“These systems are why we’re more likely to believe something in a bold typeface…” and spent some time as a servant in a Victorian era household. All this in two weeks. As I’m sure you have worked out, all these adventures were realised from the safety of sofas, camping chairs and beds. My reading list has been eclectic this summer. I’ve found myself carrying around books from relatives’ homes to beach houses, and collected a few more along the way at second-hand book stores and op shops. When I became bored with one title, I‘d pick up another. It’s my definition of heaven on Earth. Where did I physically go for my holiday? Adelaide. You wouldn’t read about it.

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.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)

Mercury connects with Pluto, Jupiter and Uranus this week. Which is sensational for creative brainstorming as you explore. But expect some confusion, as you strive to juggle conflicting needs. It’s time to fix partnership problems.

This week there could be some conflict between your professional and personal relationships, as Mercury and Uranus highlight your struggle to achieve ongoing balance. Have the confidence to express yourself with extra enthusiasm.

25

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

You’re longing for some peace and quiet but it won’t happen this week, as the planets complicate personal relationships. So don’t feel slighted if someone shocks you, ignores you, or comes on too strong and is super demanding.

The planets stir up trouble (and agitate obsessions) in your communication zone. Someone could unsettle you by passing on scandalous news. If you’re a smart Scorpio you’ll steer clear of garrulous gossip, especially online.

KIWI CROONER CROSSES THE TASMAN

Talented New Zealand musician Graeme James is hitting the Sunshine Coast as part of his Australian tour.

H

e has toured with the likes of Tash Sultana, has captivated crowds around New Zealand and now Graeme James will hit up the Sunshine Coast as part of an Australian tour. Mr James’ high intensity live show features electric violin, guitar, bass, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, beatbox and vocals, all layered with the aid of a loop pedal. Born in Nelson in New Zealand’s south

island, Mr James started out playing violin in the Netherlands as a seven-year-old with the desire to become a classical concert violinist. After his family moved back to the land of the long white cloud, he pursued this goal throughout high school as well as branching out into folk and Celtic music, playing fiddle and singing in his family’s folk band at local festivals and events. Many years later, in desperate need of some cash to repair his car while on a holiday in 2012, he hit the streets of Gisborne for his first ever loop pedal busking session. The response from the public was so overwhelming that he was back on the road in two days. Mr James released his latest single, Wish You Well, last year and says it captures the conflicting emotions we experience during a good farewell. “You really want the person to stay but you also genuinely want the best for them as they head off to new experiences and adventures,” he says. “I feel like we all experience this pretty regularly these days so the song is really a three-minute farewell party… and a pretty rowdy one at that.” Graeme James is at Solbar in Maroochydore on January 19 at 6pm in the Lounge Bar. Entry is free.

Author: Anthony Bennett and James Carroll Publisher: Harper Collins RRP: $32.99 Reviewer: Gillian Read I confess I’m a sucker for TV vet shows and animal rescue programs – I love the real and the resilience of animals, but somehow I had not seen the broadcast series of Village Vets. No matter, this book stands alone with its varied case presentations of animal patients and has the ingredients of a heartwarming/ heartwrenching read. Equally, it gives an insight into the workings of a successful veterinarian practice – through the eyes of the two practice partners, Anthony Bennett and James Carroll. The book includes some of the tough decisions and improvised treatments that urgent circumstances demand of country vets. The writing format of one case or challenge per chapter suited me, as when I was busy over the festive season, I could be happy reading just one section at a time. Overall, it was an enjoyable and easy read.

A HEALTHY START Free information sessions aim to help Sunshine Coast seniors make healthy choices.

S

unshine Coast seniors will be able to start the new year on a healthy note with a series of free healthy eating information sessions being hosted by Stockland’s Birtinya Retirement Village. Run by qualified local nutritionist and dietitian Jody Pollard from Total Nutrition Dietitian, four one-hour sessions will be held over a six-week period starting on January 23. The sessions will cover topics such as healthy eating on a budget and understanding food labels and will include food tastings and handouts. Stockland Retirement Living regional development manager Pauline Barton says

the sessions will provide valuable information and advice to local seniors looking to improve their health and wellbeing. “These free sessions are aimed at providing some clear advice on good eating habits for people in their older years as well as how to make easy changes to your diet,” Ms Barton says. Ms Pollard says each session will include a fun and interactive presentation on healthy eating and include a recipe demonstration and tasting to show participants simple ways of creating healthy dishes. “The sessions are all about presenting dietary information that’s easy to understand

and can be incorporated into your daily eating habits. “It’s not about cutting out everything that you like. My aim with all my clients is to make it easy for people to eat well and make wise choices for themselves and their family by introducing healthy foods into their diet and showing how to create dishes within their budget and to their own personal taste.” The sessions will be held from 10am at the Birtinya Retirement Village sales centre, on the corner of Birtinya Boulevard and Lake Kawana Boulevard, starting on January 23 with Healthy Habits: Making Healthy Food Changes. Registration is essential. Phone 0439 465 612.

THERE’S NEW LIFE IN THAT OLD DRUG An old drug supercharged by Australian scientists could destroy some of the world’s most dangerous superbugs. University of Queensland scientists have found a way to improve the effectiveness of vancomycin, an old drug still widely used but which dangerous bacteria are increasingly resistant to. They have modified the drug so it selectively binds to bacterial membranes

People drinking a slushie to cool down in the summer heat could be sucking down an entire week’s worth of sugar in a single sitting, health agencies warn. LiveLighter and Rethink Sugary Drink, an alliance of 18 health agencies, have teamed up to launch the Don’t Be Sucked In campaign, warning that some large-size frozen drinks contain as much as 20 teaspoons of sugar. That’s almost half an entire week’s recommended maximum in a single cup. The campaign graphically depicts a person sipping on a large cup of bulging, toxic fat and will be plastered at bus and tram stops for two weeks. LiveLighter campaign manager and dietitian Alison McAleese says drinking a large Slurpee every day in summer could result in nearly two kilograms of weight gain. “This summer, Aussies could be slurping their way towards weight gain, obesity and toxic fat, increasing their risk of 13 types of cancer, type 2 diabetes, heart and kidney disease, stroke and tooth decay,” Ms McAleese says. The alliance also wants a 20 per cent levy on sugary drinks. -AAP

Increasing certain nutrients in your diet, or colonising specific bacteria responsible for producing hormones in your gut, may be the key to improving dopamine production. It could also be a problem brought on by unhappiness, being in a situation that emotionally exhausts you. It’s important to determine if it’s emotional, biochemical, or both, and seek support to restore your levels. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you can turn it around.

sense of achievement, a sense of reward, motivation, happiness, and energy drive us toward our goals. Some struggle to feel these emotions that they once felt, or maybe never felt. Interestingly, you may be unaware that these happy emotions come from sources that may be malfunctioning. These emotions are mainly created by the brain chemical dopamine, which is our reward neurotransmitter. Without it you may feel as though you need to reward yourself from external sources, rather than from within. External sources that create reward could ultimately develop into addictions. These addictions may be to sugar, food, caffeine, alcohol, smoking or shopping. It can be quite difficult to maintain a reasonable lifestyle as it can create havoc

COMMUNITIES BENEFIT FROM LEISURE CENTRES

I

s there a leisure centre in your community or village? A 2017 study from the UK published details on the major value that leisure centres provide the communities they serve. The landmark study found that leisure centre facilities in Britain contribute more than £3.3 billion ($5.4 billion) to society. These findings are reflected in Australian studies, with leisure facilities providing a broad range of social benefits to their communities including healthier communities, lower healthcare costs and socially connected neighbourhoods. This is great news for residents at Nature’s Edge in Buderim, as the community’s $3.5 million five-star leisure centre is nearing completion. Once complete, the leisure centre will be the social hub of the community, providing state-of-the-art facilities. Facilities will include a 20-metre heated swimming pool and spa, library, lounge, arts and crafts centre, cinema, bar activities, tennis court, bowling green, gym, sauna, alfresco entertainment precincts and teppanyaki barbecue, massage and beauty therapy room.

At Nature’s Edge Buderim, over fifties can buy a spacious architecturally designed home within a secure gated community in the Buderim foothills. Most importantly, there are no exit fees and every homeowner keeps all the capital gain if they decide to sell and leave. There are currently two stunning display

HEART DISEASE RESEARCH GOES ON

FAST FACTS

Research into the link between social isolation and cardiovascular disease in older Australians is among new projects being funded by the Heart Foundation. It has offered 79 new awards to investigate the causes, treatment and prevention of heart disease, stroke and related disorders as part of a $50 million injection into heart research over the next three years. National Heart Foundation CEO Professor John G Kelly says the latest funding round will build on a significant historical research legacy from the Heart

• Nine in 10 Australians could reduce their risk of heart disease simply by walking as little as 15 minutes more each day. • One-third of the total burden due to physical inactivity in Australia is caused by heart disease. • 13 per cent of the potential disease burden due to physical inactivity could be avoided if ‘at risk’ people walked an extra 15 minutes a day. • 26 per cent of the potential disease burden due to physical inactivity could be avoided if ‘at risk’ people walked an extra 30 minutes a day.

Foundation that includes the invention of the artificial pacemaker, the introduction of coronary care units in hospitals and improved management of high cholesterol. “Despite the improvements in prevention and treatment over the past few decades, 50 years after the Heart Foundation was established, heart disease still remains the leading cause of death in Australia,” he says. “In 2016, heart disease was attributable to nearly 35,000 deaths, and 640,000 Australians live with heart disease every day.”

HANDS ON AT HALCYON

H

omeowners at the Halcyon Lakeside over fifties community at Bli Bli have shown that you’re never too old to learn a new skill or take up a new hobby. About 15 homeowners have just completed the community’s first pottery workshop program led by three of their neighbours – skilled potter Jeannette Burke and hobbyists Peter Scott and Jan Hammond. The four-week introduction to the ancient craft has allowed participants to learn and experience hand building, sculpting and wheel throwing of clay in the pottery and arts room of the community’s recreation club. Mr Scott, who has been sculpting for nine years, says his wheel-throwing students immersed themselves in the twice-weekly three-hour lessons using three pottery wheels and state-of-the-art

“The participants showed a lot of enthusiasm, with some likely to take up pottery as a hobby” equipment including a new electric kiln. “We are still scraping the clay off the ceiling,” he jokes. “But seriously, they all left with smiles on their faces and they picked it up reasonably well.” With his assistance, Mr Scott’s students threw clay on a pottery wheel and shaped a simple bowl that could be fired and then glazed. “I wanted to see them walk away with something and they all finished up with something that could be fired and glazed.”

Halcyon’s recreation club

Those doing hand building and sculpting with Ms Burke created ornamental pieces such as bowls and figurines. Mr Scott says the workshop participants showed a lot of enthusiasm, with some likely to take up pottery as a hobby. A newcomer to the Halcyon Lakeside community, he agreed to assist with the workshop program just weeks after moving in late last year. His skills have been greatly enhanced by regular trips to visit his son and grandchildren in Japan where he studied under an English-speaking pottery master in Seto – a town renowned for its pottery and ceramics.

Halcyon Lakeside is located at 1 Halcyon Way, Bli Bli. Phone 1800 050 555 or visit lifebeginsathalcyon.com.au.

ATO ISSUES WARNING The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is warning self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) trustees and retirees about the risks of some emerging retirement planning arrangements they may consider, or be approached about. Deputy Commissioner James O’Halloran says most people do the right thing and work hard to save for their retirement. “If a taxpayer becomes involved in any illegal arrangement, even by accident, they may incur severe penalties, jeopardise their retirement savings and risk losing their rights as a trustee to manage their own fund,” he says. The ATO’s Super Scheme Smart program is designed to give taxpayers access to relevant case studies and information packs to ensure they are well-informed about illegal arrangements, explain the significant risks associated with those arrangements, what warning signs to look for and where to go for help. “We are working hard to shut down illegal arrangements quickly, but the best defence for taxpayers and their advisers is to be aware,” Mr O’Halloran says. “Promoters of the arrangements may overtly target SMSF trustees and self-funded retirees, including small business owners and those involved in property development with significant assets.” He said the arrangements might be cleverly disguised to look legitimate, involve a lot of paper shuffling and framed as being designed to give a taxpayer a minimal or zero amount of tax or even a tax refund or concession. The ATO has previously raised concerns about dividend stripping arrangements and contrived arrangements involving diversion of personal services income to an SMSF.

EXPERT ADVICE TO AVOID BILL SHOCK

Buying your first home is an exciting milestone, but it’s worth thinking ahead to avoid unwanted expense.

W

hile you might be worried about the big elements when buying a home – location, size, and cost – first homebuyers should also ask their agent questions about living costs to avoid bill shock once they take ownership. With lenders approving a record $33.9 billion in new housing loans in Australia, the number of dwellings financed by first homebuyers reached the highest level in seven and a half years in August 2017. The nation is also going through somewhat of an energy crisis with power bills set to rise adding more pressure to household expenses. So what should first homebuyers be looking for when purchasing their first home so they can ensure energy-efficiency as well as manageable and affordable utility bills? First National Coastal general manager Shane Dawes says it is about looking at the property inside and out and considering that bigger is not necessarily better. “There are three factors first homebuyers should explore – the property itself, swimming pools come with hidden maintenance costs; the area’s

THE QUESTIONS TO ASK TO AVOID SURPRISE COSTS

infrastructure, local amenities, childcare, schools, beaches; and using your real estate agent’s local knowledge,’’ he says. “They’ll have the local expertise when it comes to rates, bills and the community as a whole. “Your real estate agent is your local expert and will know what the approximate costs of living in the area are. Ask questions about bills, suppliers and local businesses that are important to residents of the area.”

• Is there airconditioning and is it throughout the house or isolated to one area – what are the running costs? • Does it have a swimming pool. If so, what are the running costs? • Are solar panels fitted? • Does it have a high or low maintenance garden to reduce water bill pressure? • Does it have a clothesline to ensure you can dry clothes naturally and reduce dryer bills? • What rooms face east and face west to maximise morning and afternoon sun? • Are there trees around the property and do they provide shade? • Are blinds or screens installed on the windows to block sun? • Think about appliances. A dishwasher might seem like a bonus but can you afford to use it? • Are there rainwater tanks? • Which energy source powers the property’s heating?

CENSUS DATA REVEALS EQUALITY AND GROWTH IN REAL ESTATE CAREERS The real estate profession is booming in Queensland, growing more than 25 per cent since 2011. It also remains an equal opportunity profession, with women making up about 58 per cent of all workers in the property operators and real estate services category, according to the latest Census data. According to Census data released in late October, the Sunshine Coast statistical division has grown around 22 per cent since 2011 from 2272 to 2775 real estate professionals in 2016. The percentage of those who are women has remained steady at about 59 per cent. REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella says the Census data aligns with expectations, considering how well the market is performing lately. “We know that the profession grows when the market is performing well and over the past five years the Queensland real estate market has delivered steady, sustainable growth,” she says. “It’s a great job for communicators and generally speaking, women are considered to be great communicators. It’s a career that can fit around the commitments of kids and family and this has proven attractive.”

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Imagine this: an epic swell is about to hit your favourite break, but then you get a text message saying an incoming ballistic missile is about to hit. What do you do? And, where do you take cover? Here’s a thought. Given that the missile is designed to hit land, it could be argued that the safest place in actual fact is surfing your favourite break. Problem solved! So, finally we have seen some waves this week. Sweet Jesus it has been a long wait. I hope you guys all got something. Saturday looks like light winds so it’s fair to say Donkey Kong is in the house.
