ast week, our four-year-old announced that he wanted to open his own chain of healthy fast food stores. This week he wants to be an engineer and has been drawing up project plans. The world really is at the fingertips of our children, as are the tools for success. From as early as kindergarten, many children have access to laptops and iPads. They research, investigate and learn in a fun and interactive manner with consistent encouragement from educators. Education and career pathways have changed dramatically in the past 20 years and government bodies are already planning for further changes. In this week’s feature story, we take a look at entrepreneurship, innovation and where our future careers will lead us. Jack Delosa, who frequents BRW’s young rich list, believes the Sunshine Coast has a bright future, particularly if we continue to build on the seven high-value industries identified by our council. You can read the story on page 10. Sunshine Coast Council also weighs in on the topic with a four-page future careers feature starting on page 28. In this edition we also delve into the world of food. From Singapore hawker centres to Gold Coast cafes in My travel, and through to Sunshine Coast signature dishes in My time, I’m sure there is something to whet the appetite. Plus, we chat with all-round nice guy, Guy Sebastian. Enjoy!

ON THE BALL Where do you live? Golden Beach. I am originally from New Zealand. I came out to Australia in 2014 for a sabbatical and didn’t quite go back.

Best day in your life and why? It would have to be my wedding to my wife Bridget on the beach at Mooloolaba with my family and friends.

First job? A paper boy earning $12.60 a week. Back in the 1980s in New Zealand, the paper run was on a bike starting at 5am every day. I was 12.

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? The day my first child Jazmine was born. Driving home that night I realised I had left my wife and baby in hospital but the next day going back I could take Jazmine home – that was a real point of me saying ‘I’m responsible for that person, for that little girl there, for the rest of my life’.

What are you currently working on? Delivering our strategic plan for Sunshine Coast Stadium. Your family includes? My wife Bridget and my two daughters Jazmine, seven, and Summer, five. We also have a Staffordshire bull terrier named Diesel, a Siamese fighting fish called Pinky Pie and two budgies, Ocean and Phoebe.

Simon Ball


BIO New Zealand-born Simon Ball is a relative newcomer to the Sunshine Coast, but he has quickly become a passionate local advocate. As the manager of the Sunshine Coast Stadium, he helps attract an array of community, leisure and sporting events to the region. However, Mr Ball is working on a plan to bring even more live music content and other events to the region.


First car? A 1980 Honda Civic. It was nicknamed the blue-red Honda Porsche due to the amount of rust protection required to keep it together. If your life was a book, what would be the title? Start At The Bottom and Work Hard. I’ve never been the most talented or educated person, but I believe my hard work ethic and ability to have a go have helped me get to where I am.

What achievement are you most proud of? Probably where I am today. At school I was told I would get nowhere. Through hard work and drive I’ve got the best job in the world, a great family and I live in the best place in the world.

“My hard work ethic and ability to have a go have helped me get to where I am”

Favourite song and why? Loyal by Dave Dobbyn. It sums me up. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? The tip of Bribie Island. It is so beautiful and reasonably untouched. I will take my family over there, pitch a tent and spend the day there. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? We need a major entertainment facility, a convention and conference facility, and a stadium to host major events. We have Sunshine Coast Stadium and it does extremely well for the size of it, but I’m still amazed that a region of this size doesn’t have a big venue. The other thing that’s so important to the success of the region is public transport – we’ve got to move out of the dark ages of driving everywhere.

You are happiest when? I’m with my family and friends. What frustrates you the most? Lazy, unmotivated people, people who don’t want to have a go or don’t want to apply themselves.

How do you deal with your frustrations? I try to motivate those people, surround myself with people who are passionate, whether it be work or life, but also who enjoy having a good time no matter what is happening. If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? Make a plan and see where it takes you. If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? Ed Sheeran, Barack Obama and former All Blacks captain Richie McCaw. If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? Share it with my family and friends, and holiday in the Maldives. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? Coffee – flat white with one. NRL or AFL? NRL – the Warriors and Melbourne Storm.

The Sunshine Coast is haunted – or at least around 4000 residents believe it is. These ghost-hunters share their tales regularly on the Haunted: Sunshine Coast Facebook page.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 14,000 Australians found employment in the month from February 2018 to March 2018. This brought total employment to 12,485,800.

We’re told that tech startups are the way of the future. But those in the know warn we also need to foster entrepreneurship in traditional industries, and the Sunshine Coast is well placed to lead the charge. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.


“Anybody with a laptop, phone and internet connection can start what can become a hugely successful business” Jack Delosa, entrepreneur

10 My Weekly Preview | May 4, 2018

he jobs of the future are not as futuristic as you might think. In fact, one of the country’s most successful young entrepreneurs says it’s not only artificial intelligence, virtual reality or IT enterprises that will provide future generations on the Sunshine Coast with meaningful employment – it’s building on and innovating in the seven high-value industries already thriving here. And Jack Delosa, who was just 26 years old when he had established multimilliondollar businesses Entourage and MBE Education, says this possible future comes down to just one word – entrepreneurs. The Coast has been widely recognised for punching above its weight when it comes to entrepreneurship and according to experts across a range of fields, this will stand the region in good stead to tackle rapidly changing work environments well into the future. Queensland’s first chief entrepreneur Mark Sowerby says the Coast is the most entrepreneurial area in Australia. Social commentator Bernard Salt says the Coast has earned that title based on the proportion of the workforce who own their own businesses. Of the more than 60,900 small businesses in the region, 60.8 per cent are sole operators and the largest industry sector by number of businesses in the area is construction, followed by rental, real estate and professional services. Scientific and technical services are placed fifth on the list. Entrepreneurship and innovation have become buzz words that are rapidly fired around in all industries and no one knows them better than Mr Delosa, who has been on BRW’s young rich list since 2014. He visited the Coast last month to speak at the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce’s Better Business Breakfast about disruptive innovation and he tells My Weekly Preview there have never been fewer barriers in place to prevent people from being self-employed. “Entrepreneurship is a rising tide globally because more and more people are becoming dissatisfied with traditional education and career paths. We have seen parents work incredibly hard for 40 to 60 years and not achieve the level of financial independence or freedom to give them a meaningful financial existence in retirement,” he says. “To start a business 30 years ago, you needed a factory, an office, staff, stock and so the barriers to entry were high and starting a business was reserved for a small minority of people. In 2018, these barriers don’t exist. “Anybody with a laptop, phone and internet connection can start what can become a hugely successful business. “The people on the covers of magazines 20 years ago were the Bonos and Michael Jacksons. Today we see the Sir Richard Bransons and the Mark Zuckerbergs of the

world. People of any age and societal class can identify with the idea of taking their own career and their own life into their hands and striving to do something they enjoy while becoming successful.” While he admits this is a romanticised vision most would-be entrepreneurs have, Mr Delosa says most quickly realise they are entering what he calls a VUCA environment – one that is volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. “The traditional job path is quite linear and has a lot of security, but the VUCA environment means entrepreneurs need to assess whether they have the emotional fortitude required to stick with their plans long enough to be successful,” he says. Those wanting to forge a path in the tech industry dream of creating what is known as a unicorn, a privately held startup valued at more than $1 billion. Even the Queensland Government, in its South East Queensland 2014 Startup Ecosystem Report, outlines a desire to foster and attract unicorns.

Teen entrepreneur Eamon Kriz The report estimates the potential economic impact of disruptive digital technologies on Queensland’s economy in 2025 will be $96 billion per annum, with a direct impact from the digital technology sector of more than $6 billion per year. “To ensure the majority of this value is created and retained by local companies, Queensland will need more than 3000 startups, hundreds of established technology companies and a unicorn or two. Without this, economic growth will be lost to international competitors,” the report states. But Mr Delosa disagrees. He says while unicorns can “technically come from anywhere,” he believes the Sunshine Coast is better off placing more effort into small- and medium-sized business across all seven of the Sunshine Coast Council’s key industries, and not just those with a technology focus. “Unicorns are so few and far between that they are given a disproportionate amount of

30/04/2018 1:36:37 PM

FEATURE STORY focus. We need the juice bars, the personal trainers, the consulting businesses, the recruitment companies – this is where the job growth comes from and this is how you stimulate the economy and the local ecosystem,” he says. “There is no doubt there is a new wave of technologies coming in, with virtual reality and artificial intelligence among them, but we need more of a focus on consumer-based products at a grassroots level.” On a visit to the Coast earlier this year, award-winning social researcher, futurist and demographer Mark McCrindle analysed the 2016 Census data for the region and said we were already ahead of the game in terms of future-proofing our workforce. “The workforce of the future will look for opportunities beyond traditional employment,” he said. “Things like the gig economy, start-ups, coworking spaces – these are the ways and means of working in the future and it is radically changing this generation. “The key to driving future success is a mix of education, flexible workspaces and collegiate opportunities for like-minded professionals. We see that [on the Coast] already, with the number of start-ups, tech corridors starting to emerge and the fact the Sunshine Coast provides what this generation looks for, which is a work/life balance where lifestyle can be mixed with earning opportunities.” Before he was elected as Member for Fairfax, Ted O’Brien established Generation Innovation (GI), a program that fosters young entrepreneurs and provides them with professional guidance. He says the program, which is now seeking participants for its fourth year, builds business experience, networks and capital for young entrepreneurs to launch themselves into the active market. “GI is all about finding that sweet spot,” he says. “Every participant has to identify where their passion overlaps their ability and then we see if that also overlaps with market demand.” Mr O’Brien says uncertainty is the new normal and the way to strengthen the workforce of the future is to build resilience

Eamon Kriz hard at work

WHAT ARE THE SUNSHINE COAST’S SEVEN HIGHVALUE INDUSTRIES? • Health and wellbeing • Education and research • Knowledge industries and professional services • Aviation and aerospace • Tourism, sport and leisure • Agribusiness • Clean technologies and beyond that, economic independence. “When we use innovation as a word, people think automatically it’s all about technology. But technology is just an enabler of innovation. It’s the established industries that are the drivers, albeit some more than others. While education in things like AI, robotics and science and maths are still critical, we need to be very careful that we don’t exaggerate their impact and make everyone think that have to become tech geniuses. The more we can get our smalland medium-sized businesses across all industries creating new opportunities, the stronger our future will be.” One of the great GI success stories to come out of the 2017 program is already flying high. St John’s College student Eamon Kriz was 15 years old when he joined GI to investigate whether he could transform his passion for piloting unmanned aerial vehicles, or drones, into a viable business. He became the youngest person to win a GI challenge with In The Air, which catapulted him into the local business scene while he was still in Year 10.

The Peregian Beach teen had invested in a DJI photography drone and worked for Sunshine Coast Elite Surf Coaching’s Jeff Previti filming surfers before joining GI. “My original focus was to provide the service for individuals who just wanted footage of themselves competing in or enjoying their sport, but going through the GI process saw me move more towards eventbased aerial cinematography,” Eamon says. Now in Year 11, Eamon is juggling school work with studying a diploma of business and working for his In The Air clients. He credits GI’s crowdfunding push for helping him to raise enough money to get his remote pilot license, which will enable him to fly commercially and stand him in good stead for a future in the industry. Entrepreneurs of all ages are finding support through a number of networks, which will benefit from the February release of the University of the Sunshine Coast School of Business and Sunshine Coast Council report Sunshine Coast: The Place To Be – Encouraging An Entrepreneurial Culture. Focus groups and interviews with entrepreneurs during the creation of the report allowed researchers to develop 14 ‘personas’ that exemplify entrepreneurial approaches on the Coast, from experienced industry leaders to owners of small part-time businesses. Sunshine Coast Council Industry Development’s Anne Lawrence says this will help organisations tailor business and entrepreneurship programs. “Our research shows that different entrepreneurs need different types of support,” she says. “This research is unique and has a practical outcome, helping further the economic growth of this region by providing a baseline for supporting entrepreneurs through a deeper understanding of the different types of entrepreneurs.” For Soak Society founder Natalie Thorogood, it was being part of the inaugural Spark Bureau group two years ago that helped her reconnect with the Coast community after living in Brisbane for 10 years. Ms Thorogood says she felt supported not only by friends and family,

Natalie Thorogood but the wider community when she decided to move to Coolum to focus solely on her business, which manufactures and sells natural bath products. “We needed to find a warehouse space and I quickly became grateful that I chose the Sunshine Coast because the rent here is a lot cheaper.” She says a property like that in Brisbane near the airport “would be twice the rent, and I also get to have a five-minute drive to work and to be able to go to the beach and live a balanced lifestyle,” she says. Ms Thorogood was selected to attend a seven-day digital detox, called the Venturer Mission, in New Zealand at the end of March and reports that this financial year, Soak Society is on track to double last year’s turnover and double the profit. “Export has been the key for me. It’s definitely very daunting at the start, but to have a profitable business, you just can’t focus on Australia. We simply don’t have the population here,” she says. “I would say to all entrepreneurs to never let lack of experience stop you. I haven’t come from a very entrepreneurial family. I was stubborn and knew what I wanted to do and just figured it out along the way.”

SURF CULTURE CELEBRATED ON THE BIG SCREEN Everything about the Sunshine Coast’s surf culture will be celebrated at the Sunshine Coast Film Festival, which kicks off on May 17. The three-day festival will feature documentaries and animated movies including The Church of the Open Sky, Blue, Surf’s Up, Between Land & Sea, Beyond, Börf or Die and Such a Long Time. With so much on offer, there is something to pull even the most dedicated surfers away from the beach. For a full program and to buy tickets, visit

GALLERY THE PLACE TO PICK UP A HANDMADE GIFT Entertain the kids, pick up a beautiful Mother’s Day gift or spoil yourself at Caloundra Regional Gallery’s Arts in the Park and Artisan Market on May 5. The gallery will spill out into Felicity Park for Arts in the Park, a free family-friendly day of arts, crafts and story time inspired by nature. Kids will love the creative activities, including weaving with natural materials, printed nature flags, bush art, bugs and butterfly finger-puppets, storytelling and free face painting. Stalls include Asha Jane & Co, AR-T, Notely, Sarah Sheppard Ceramics, Silver Glass Fusion, Succulent Artistry and Tootzzi (pictured). Step inside the gallery and wander among the artisan market stalls from 10am to 2pm to meet the makers and purchase beautiful handmade products.


$24 BILLION There is no denying there has been a meteoric rise in the popularity of pre-loved designer clothing in the past couple of years. The grunge ‘90s and the noughties that followed saw the rise of thrift store chic. According to second hand site ThredUp, clothing resales (including online and offline second-hand sales) is a $24-billion industry and is expected to grow to $44 billion by 2021. Another Woman’s Closet has seen this coming and will host another secondhand clothing sale on May 6 from 8am to 11.30am at Peregian Beach Community House. Entry is free, and items are usually priced between $5 and $15 each.

OOH LA LA! If you’d love to immerse yourself in French culture without heading overseas, the Sunshine Coast French Festival is a must. Tickets are on sale for masterclasses in champagne, wine, fromage (cheese), and art, and will be quickly snapped up, with only 30 tickets per class available. The festival promises to be a feast for the senses, with delicious food and wine, live entertainment and French-inspired markets showcasing products not usually found on the Sunshine Coast. The festival will run over July 28 and 29. Tickets and places for the masterclasses are available now at au.

NOT TOO LATE TO JOIN RELAY FOR LIFE People of all ages are gearing up for the annual Relay For Life. This event is a fun and moving overnight experience that raises vital funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention, information and support services. Relay is a chance for the Sunshine Coast community to recognise and celebrate local cancer survivors, patients and their carers, to honour and remember loved ones lost to cancer and to raise money to help save more lives. The Relay is on May 5 from 2pm to May 6 at 8am with a candlelight ceremony at 7pm on Saturday. It’s not too late to register a team, visit and search for Sunshine Coast.



TOP SECRET WWII AIR BASE RECREATED VIRTUALLY A team of researchers from the University of the Sunshine Coast has visited Charleville to unearth information about a top secret United States Air Force base that was considered the last line of defence for Australia against the Japanese in World War II. Associate Professor in Tourism Brent Moyle led the team, which is working alongside Griffith University academics in a three-year project to create a virtual tour of the Charleville airfield circa 1942 when it became the terminal for heavy bomber aircraft from the USA. Among the researchers is Chris Little from Griffith University, who is using non-invasive methods for 3D capture of historical artefacts that will be used to help develop interactive virtual experiences.

The Sunshine Coast Council is among 77 local councils from the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) to commit to ensuring the state becomes a world leader in waste management. The councils have pledged to work towards a zero-waste to landfill target by 2028. Sunshine Coast mayor and LGAQ president Mark Jamieson says they support the State Government’s recent commitment to consider zero-waste and waste-to-energy strategies. “Our aim is to eventually close landfills altogether,” he says.

The late wildlife warrior Steve Irwin, who was popularly known around the world as the Crocodile Hunter, has received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin were emotional as they attended the unveiling ceremony late last week, with Bindi giving a moving tribute to her late father. “This is such a wonderful moment for our entire family. Dad changed the world by reaching out to people through their television screens to bring them on the adventure of a lifetime,” she said. “To have his name on a Hollywood Star means the world as we carry on his important work.”

The need for more education around parking legislation was identified as a key action by stakeholders at Sunshine Coast Council’s verge parking workshop and has led to the establishment of a working group, the development of new educational fact sheets, updated and improved website content and an information pack for real estate agents. The Verge Parking Working Group has developed a series of new fact sheets to help the community better understand requirements when parking in residential areas, considering neighbours and general parking in the Sunshine Coast area. A dedicated parking information page has been created on council’s website to provide the community with a one-stop shop for information relating to parking. Visit Living-and-Community/Parking.


Ten new high-quality concrete acrylic surface netball courts have been installed at the Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex following the announcement that major sporting festival NetFest will relocate to the Sunshine Coast. Celebrating everything netball, there will be traditional matches, fast five matches, night games and day games all played on a mix of hard, grass and sand court which will be played at the Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex and on the sand of Mooloolaba Beach from October 4 to 7. The event will come at a time when the Coast is not traditionally busy with holidaymakers and it is estimated to be worth about $8 million to the region.

FAMILY GUY He’s come a long way since he first appeared on the Australian Idol stage 15 years ago. Before he hits the Sunshine Coast for his latest tour, Guy Sebastian catches up with My Weekly Preview to talk writing, performing, and being a dad. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.



t’s a very cheerful and warm Guy Sebastian who greets me over the phone from the other side of the world. He is writing his next album with Los Angeles talents and it’s clear the Australian star is in his element. The Malaysian-born, Adelaide-raised singer first came to our attention as a contestant of the first season of Australia Idol in 2003. Sporting an impressive afro, the young talent went on to win the series and has become a successful staple of the music industry with more than 40 platinum-certified releases and more than three million sales to date. He broke into the highly competitive American industry with the platinum hit Battle Scars, a duet with rapper Lupe Fiasco, in 2012 and has explored all kinds of musical genres in his eight studio albums, from the gospel of his roots to traditional pop, R&B and electro. He began singing at age 14 and went on to become the only Australian male artist to ever achieve six number one singles and two number one albums in chart history. He also gained global recognition as our country’s representative in the 60th Eurovision competition in 2015. It’s a career to be proud of, that’s for sure. Speaking with My Weekly Preview before his Then and Now tour brings him to the Sunshine Coast, Mr Sebastian says he is “more in love” with music now than ever before. “I feel like now’s the time to make that statement album,” he says. “My writing has really matured and my strike rate is so much better. There were trips where I’d write 10 songs and only like one or two of them. “Now, I don’t even bother writing down an idea that doesn’t feel special. Earworms are a real thing for artists too and when you are writing a song, you know you have a good one when the melodies are floating around in your head for days after. “The difficulty is creating that perfect blend of earworm and lyrical content that has a fresh perspective and is relevant. People think pop music is easy, but it’s really hard.” The 36-year-old says pursuing an active lifestyle has opened his mindset and has sharpened his writing skills. “My creativity has opened up so much since I started getting fit. Every morning while I’ve been in LA, I run up the famous Runyon Canyon. It’s like a ritual. You are so high by the time you reach the top, I can look out over LA and open myself up to the possibilities of the day. To have a personal victory like that so early in the day makes me feel like I can tackle anything on a creative level and it helps me a lot. When I get home, I hit up my trainer. It’s not a good training session unless you are almost on the brink of being sick.”

Local audiences will be able to catch Guy Sebastian

Mr Sebastian admits being away from his sons Hudson and Archer is the hardest part of being an in-demand performer, and with his eldest now in school, they cannot travel on the road as a family with his wife Jules like they used to. “The last regional tour that came to the Sunshine Coast, the Get Along tour, we did 50-something shows around the regional areas and I took my boys with me,” he says. “We had a massive mobile home that my family and I travelled in and it was easy to do that at the time because we had a toddler and a baby. But Huddy’s six now and his brother is four, so they are locked into their schedule.” Mr Sebastian credits his children for positively influencing him in all aspects of his life. “Before kids, you are living for yourself and all that matters is you and your partner. Your priorities shift when you have kids; it becomes about them and everything you do centres around them,” he says. “[Being a dad] has made me a way better worker. I am more focused – I have written four songs in the last two days and it’s all because I’m hanging to get back to see them again. “Travel comes in waves with the album-making cycle, so there is a bit more travel at the moment and then when I record, I do a lot of it in my home office studio in Surry Hills in Sydney, so I can see my kids, family and friends heaps. When

I tour Europe or the UK, which I did recently, it is really testing to be on the other side of the world.” As much as he loves to go fishing, swim in the ocean and play music with his sons, Mr Sebastian says there is also a deep part of him that yearns for touring life and the interaction with his fans, and he can’t wait for his upcoming visit to the Coast. “This tour will see me playing songs from the past 15 years. I’ve released a lot over that time. The audience will also get a sneak preview at the latest stuff I’m working on now,” he says. “But it will also be in a different configuration. It will be very vocal-focused with some ridiculously talented singers on stage with me, including my tour support Fatai, who will also be jumping on stage with me. These people are absolute beast singers and it will be really soulful and quite organic. This is not such a commanding production; it will have more of a small pub vibe, where everyone can sing along and get into it and let themselves go a bit.” After the release of his next album, which is yet to be titled, Mr Sebastian says he hopes to “test some other waters” internationally to expand the reach of his music. “My last production went a little bit more electronic, so I want to focus on getting back to big songs that are from the heart and have soul. I love pop and big ballads with soulful tunes,” he says.

Guy Sebastian is at the Lake Kawana Community Centre on July 7. Tickets are available now at

OUT IN FORCE The Sunshine Coast Police Officer of the Year Awards recognise the valuable work of the region’s outstanding officers. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

Your money questions answered

with Michael Rowland

How do I teach my kids the value of money? (K&S 4575) In an increasingly digital world, the value of money can be a difficult concept for children to grasp. Here are some tips for helping your kids - or your grandkids - become wealthy and wise. When you were young, do you remember standing next to mum or dad at the corner shop and watching them count out notes and coins to pay for the bread and milk? This was a valuable lesson about the purpose and value of money. Fast forward to today – few corner shops exist and the days of counting change are over. When our children see us pay for something at the shopping centre, it’s likely to be with a piece of plastic – or even by mobile phone. That’s why it’s now more crucial than ever to consciously teach your children and grandchildren about money: how to spend it and how to save it. Here are five ways to do it. 1. Help them budget and save Many children believe parents have an endless supply of money – which is why it’s so important to talk to kids about money from an early age. You can start by discussing your own household budget and explaining how you manage costs like weekly grocery shopping and phone bills. If there’s something your child wants, like a new soccer ball or item of clothing, work out a budget so they can save up and buy it. Then reward them by taking them shopping. 2. Give them pocket money Pocket money is one of the simplest and most powerful ways to teach children the value of cash – which is why it should be earned rather than given freely. Whether it’s payment for completing chores or a reward for behaving

well, children will understand very quickly that money has value. You can also separate their pocket money into portions for spending and saving, so they’ll learn how to put money aside for the future. 3. Set up a bank account By setting up a bank account for your child, you can teach them the basics of everyday banking. It’s worth discussing the statements with them when they arrive – not only so you can explain what each part means, but also so you can check their progress towards their savings goals and praise them as they reach each milestone. You might even open a separate savings account to help making saving fun and easy. 4. Make money fun Learning about money doesn’t have to be another chore: there are plenty of games you can use to teach kids financial literacy. From a young age, you can play-act spending situations with your kids, like pretending to ‘shop’ with their toys or using food items in the kitchen. As your children get older, these games can become more advanced. In fact, one of the best ways may be through playing Monopoly – which you can use to teach more complex concepts like rent and taxes. 5. Surf the net The internet is a treasure trove of information on all things financial.

he first Sunshine Coast Police Officer of the Year will be named next week. Sunshine Coast residents had the opportunity to nominate an officer to recognise outstanding acts of courage, compassion, understanding or devotion to duty and a selection panel will choose six finalists before the inaugural awards night on May 9 at the Maroochy River Golf Club. The awards are being hosted by the region’s newest Rotary club, Sunshine Coast Central, which was chartered on June 24 last year. The club’s development manager Carolyn Krueger attended similar awards for many years at Pine Rivers and was so impressed she moved to recognise Sunshine Coast police officers. “This is something that Rotary clubs throughout the whole of Australia are doing to recognise our hard-working men and women in blue,” Ms Krueger says. Senior Sergeant officer in charge of the Crime Prevention Unit Sunshine Coast District Brad Grant says he was pleasantly surprised when he first heard about the inception of the awards. “We have an internal process for [awards] but it’s not often the community gets an opportunity to nominate

a police officer for recognition. It’s a good initiative,” he says. “This is another opportunity for community engagement with the police service and highlights the importance of policing and how officers are getting involved in their community.” Nominations closed on April 13 and are now being vetted by the Queensland Police Service (QPS) before they are considered by the selection panel, which will consist of selected members of the Rotary Club of Sunshine Coast Central, plus two representatives from QPS Sunshine Coast. Police Commissioner Ian Stewart will award the winner a perpetual trophy, which will be displayed at the QPS Sunshine Coast headquarters and the outright winner will nominate a charity of their choice, which the Rotary Club of Sunshine Coast Central will donate to in the winner’s name.

The Sunshine Coast Police Officer of the Year Awards, proudly supported by My Weekly Preview, is on May 9 from 6pm at the Maroochy River Golf Club. Tickets are $65 and are available by contacting Carolyn Krueger on

BIKE HELMET OFFERS A NEW VIEW The world-first dual camera cycling helmet is designed to make cycling safer while recording the rider’s adventures (and misadventures). Invented by cyclists, for cyclists, Cyclevision EDGE is the world’s first bicycle helmet to incorporate in-built front and rear cameras. The vulnerability of road cyclists motivated Rob and Suzanne Asker to develop Cyclevision EDGE. An average of 35 cyclists are killed each year on Australian roads, and thousands more sustain serious injuries. A keen cyclist, Mr Asker himself has been the victim of two hit-and-run incidents. At the touch of a button, the Cyclevision EDGE helmet records Full HD footage simultaneously from both cameras onto 32GB of internal memory. The free app and built-in Wi-Fi lets you stream live vision from the cameras to a mobile device mounted on the handlebars to create an electronic rear-view camera. Cyclevision EDGE is available on with an RRP of $660.

GREAT RACE TO TAKE TO THE SKIES Electric planes and other highly efficient aircraft will race from London to Darwin next year to mark the centenary of the Great Air Race. The race and a series of other events in the Top End will celebrate 100 years since Captain Ross Smith, Lieutenant Keith Smith and sergeants Wally Shiers and Jim Bennett won the first event. Captain Smith and his colleagues flew a Vickers Vimy biplane more than 18,000 kilometres in 28 days in 1919, with the race acting as a catalyst for international travel and improved communications. The 2019 event, to be known as the Centenary E-Race, will start in London late next year and stop over in at least 15 countries before making its way to Darwin. It is hoped that world-leading technology companies including Tesla, NASA, Airbus, Virgin and Boeing will enter in celebration of a century of aviation innovation and achievement by engineers, designers and aircraft constructors. - AAP

PILLOW TALK SleepTalker is a podcast about sleep, dreams, nightmares and what happens in your head after dark. This isn’t a regular podcast, but one that will take you on a journey through everything related to sleep, from those we sleep beside to the anxieties, disorders and distractions that keep us from a good night’s rest, or the ways in which we work with the experiences we have while asleep – and how they affect our waking lives. There is plenty to learn on this journey through slumber. You can listen to SleepTalker on

Do you have trouble falling asleep? Waking through the night, or waking like you haven’t slept at all? Find out why Are you tired throughout the day, struggle to concentrate or falling asleep at work? Does your mind race or do you stir all night, waking groggy despite taking sleeping tablets? Don’t accept these feelings as “normal”. Various health issues may be causing these symptoms along with anxiety, anger outbursts, poor concentration, fatigue, sugar cravings, reduced ability to cope with stress, depression, or irritable bowel symptoms. These symptoms have been known to come on suddenly or gradually worsen over years. Overgrowth of a specific family of bacteria in the gut, common gene mutations that also cause symptoms of seasonal hay fever, sinus, allergy or chemical sensitivities, intense ongoing stress, or hormonal imbalances will all impact sleep and inhibit the production of melatonin, your sleep hormone needed for sustained, restorative sleep.

Levels of below 5% are acceptable, however infection of up to 80%+ is often found in people with symptoms of insomnia, mood, gut, inflammatory or immune disorders. Easily transmittable and common infections have been detected through specialised testing in those with insomnia. The bacteria release a neuronal toxin, affecting the nervous system physically and mentally. Studies now available link the impact of gut bacteria on the brain. Being easily passed on, others in your home may also be affected with varying symptoms. As time passes, chronic insomnia caused by one condition may worsen other health conditions, making it very hard to break the cycle without restoring each body system to optimal health. Through restoring gut health, correcting biochemical processes caused by genetic issues, and supporting production of hormones required for good quality sleep will allow your health, mood and happiness to get back on track. Don’t put up with the cycle of low energy, high stress and poor sleep any longer.

Sami Muirhead hopes there will be a big turnout for a pirate-themed event at Sea Life to raise money for a little boy with cerebral palsy.

Richard O’Leary wasn’t expecting to be forced to confront his mortality at his mother’s 70th birthday gathering.


ome kids have much tougher battles than most in their daily lives. Little Jackson Hislop was born 15 weeks premature and now lives with quadriplegic dystonic cerebral palsy. The plucky three-year-old also has a hearing impairment, which has delayed his ability to walk. The little boy’s mum, Kristy Lea Hislop, is raising money to buy a wheelchair van. “Jack is the absolute light of our life,” she says. “Such a cheeky character. We spent the year after his diagnosis attending multiple early intervention therapies and saw the determination of our boy amaze us and all of his therapists along the way. Thanks to an overwhelming amount of support last year, we managed to provide Jack with all the equipment and therapy he needed through the year. “We are so grateful. Jack doesn’t let CP hold him back from enjoying a full and happy life. Jack’s favourite thing to do is to get out and about and explore new places (the aquarium is the latest favourite), to go for a walk, and to people-watch. “He has now grown into such a big boy, I am having a hard time getting him in and out of the car seat. I have also been lifting his 39-kilogram chair in and out of the car, so it’s definitely time to start modifying our car and house to accommodate a wheelchair.” Enter Sea Life Sunshine Coast. The centre is holding a fundraising event on Friday, May 4 for Jackson and will open their

doors from 5pm to 7pm for a cost of $20. There will be pirate-themed fun and of course the stars of the show (the sharks) will be in full flight in a rare night-time display. The staff are working for free and feel passionate about raising as much money as possible for this special little boy. “We are hoping to raise both awareness for Jackson’s medical condition and funds to help equip their home for Jackson’s needs,” says Vicki Brown, operations manager at Sea Life Sunshine Coast. The well-known local is one of the forces behind the success of the charity arm of Sea Life, which is celebrating 10 years of giving to kids. It’s called Merlin’s Magic Wand and it spreads magic to the kids who need it most. “Our charity, Merlin’s Magic Wand, supports seriously ill, disadvantaged and disabled children in three ways,” says Vicki. “Firstly, magical days out where we give away almost 5000 tickets to Sea Life Sunshine Coast each year to local families and charities. We also visit the children’s ward every month with a portable touch tank and artefacts for distraction therapy and we have magical spaces where we raise funds to do a makeover for a local charity. “Recently we did a toddler’s counselling room and playdeck at a SunnyKids refuge. We raised over $30,000 for that one.” So we hope to see you at the ultimate pirate party, or you can support Jackson on his Go Fund Me page if you search for his name. Charity really does start at home.

t had all been going so well at my mother’s 70th birthday party until someone just had to ruin the mood. Relatives had travelled from all over Australia for the shindig at Tangalooma Island Resort. My mother and father who had only celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary the week before, were joined by their three sons, daughters-in-law, and five grandkids. For an O’Leary do it was unusually tame. There had been no major disagreements, nobody had brought up resentments from the sandpit 40 years ago, and even an early start to the inevitable drinking session had not lit the wick to any trouble. In fact, it’s fair to say everyone had been on their best behaviour to honour the family matriarch. Devoted daughter. Loyal wife. Proud (and forgiving) mother and doting grandmother. And it was one of those grandchildren who couldn’t resist the verbal jab that floored one of the guests. “Do you realise the next time we come together to celebrate a 70th, it will be for you Uncle Richard?” No, I had not realised that, 20-something niece who I once cradled in my arms and bought birthday and Christmas presents for the last couple of decades. No. I. Had. Not. “In 24 years,” I replied pathetically as the room started to spin and my mortality stared back at me from the chocolate mudcake. I fought my desire to desert the dessert and

quickly scanned the table like a man overboard desperately seeking something to hang on to. But the only things I saw in the water were shark fins and blood. Dad – turned 70 three years ago. My brothers – younger than me. Our wives – younger than us. I stared blankly at my seven year-old son. I had once been that child, the youngest in the room at an elderly relative’s birthday party. The truth of my niece’s accusation hit me harder than the punch her father delivered to my tailbone more than 30 years ago. I was no longer that little boy at my gran’s house looking up at all the old people. I was no longer that teenager who brought his girlfriend to family events like my nephew had done at this one. I was no longer the young man who had eloped to Santorini. I was no longer the father of baby boys. I am 46 years old and in 24 years I will be 70. Me. Seventy. Every birthday for the last decade or so, I’ve convinced myself I am only halfway through my life. At 35 I was considered pessimistic, at 40 people considered me realistic, at 46 some say I’m being optimistic, but at 70 I would be written off as stark, raving mad. But through all this I have finally found some solace. I’ve decided to have a very small, but select, get-together for my 70th, so I can turn to my niece just before the birthday cake is served and say, “You’re next.”

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.

TIPS FOR GOING FROM BLONDE TO BRUNETTE Autumn and winter are the best seasons to go dark, when salt water and chlorine won’t interfere with your colour. Take inspiration from Scarlett Johansson, who recently went from blonde to this beautiful brunette. But before you take the plunge, remember these tips: • There is a brunette shade to suit everyone but try some wigs on first to see if you’re really okay with going to the dark side. • Have a colour consultation first and ask how many visits it will take to achieve the right colour – it could take three or four visits. • Make sure you’ll be able to keep up the maintenance or your colour will simply fade to yuck. • Ask for multi-tonal foils so you don’t end up with one harsh block colour. Opt for lighter shades around the face. • Darken your eyebrows and update your makeup. • Make sure your hair is in good condition before having a colour change.

Chris Harris, Ord Minnett Buderim.



oday’s article reviews our asset allocation thinking and outlines our portfolio positioning at this time in the investment cycle. Good prospects for earnings and attractive valuations sees us retain a growth bias with overweights in equities and underweight on fixed-rate bonds. Increased market volatility mid-March, saw us review our overall position in markets. Pleasingly, a traditional global business cycle dynamic has taken hold. At this current time, a positive feedback loop, linking growth to supportive financial conditions and rising sentiment, provides fuel for a second year of synchronised above-trend global growth in 2018. Alongside strong growth, we expect inflation to rise and central bank rate normalisation to gather steam. So,

economically we anticipate growth, however a normalisation in rates (borrowing costs) should result in bouts of volatility. We suggest investors remain overweight international equities. This asset class is poised to deliver double-digit growth this year, with the Eurozone and Japan our preferred exposures. The US policy initiatives (i.e., lower corporate taxes, reduction in regulatory burden) should also provide upside for US small caps investments.

“We believe the Reserve Bank of Australia will stay on hold for the forseeable future…” Sector-wise, with inflation normalising, financials remain the key international position. Emerging markets should have another solid year. For domestic investors we are neutral on Australian equities, which should deliver high single-digit total returns with utilities and healthcare offering the greatest potential

gains. The outlook for commodities could become more challenged if China falters, but at this time demand and pricing is favourable. We suggest an underweight position in connection to fixed rate interest investments (bonds) with prospect of negative returns from higher inflation. We anticipate yields will rise across the Group of 4 – the US Federal Reserve will hike four times in 2018 and continue unwinding its balance sheet; the European Central Bank and Bank of Japan will leave rates steady but gradually reduce the pace of asset purchases. In the interest rate market we prefer variable rate investments. In connection to cash we believe the Reserve Bank of Australia will stay on hold for the foreseeable future, but should international funding costs increase, borrowers (ie mortgage holders) could see out of cycle rate hikes as the banks look to protect profits. No doubt we’ll read about this issue but at this time they are stumbling through the Banking Royal Commission.

SAROO’S STORY IN PERSON Saroo Brierley and his adoptive mother Sue are set to share their incredible story at the upcoming Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network Mothers’ Day breakfast. The pair became household names following the release of the 2017 Oscarnominated film Lion, which told their inspirational story. The film, starring Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel, was inspired by Mr Brierley’s bestselling autobiography, A Long Way Home. The book tells the story of how Mr Brierley used Google Earth to find his long lost hometown on the other side of the world. The event will be held on May 15 at the Maroochy Surf Club from 6.45am. The breakfast aims to celebrate the role of a mother – whether it be a birth, adoptive or stepmother, or guardians and caregivers. For more about the network’s events, visit

Message from the Mayor

Built on entrepreneurship, innovation and digital technologies This 4-page feature is an initiative of the Education and Research Industry Taskforce and Education Sunshine Coast Inc, supported by Sunshine Coast Council. The Sunshine Coast Regional Economic Development Strategy provides a vision and blueprint for sustainable economic growth towards 2033. Education and Research was identified as one of seven high-value industries that offer the greatest potential to succeed as the economy grows. A continued investment in talent and skills is crucial to meeting the needs of the region and preparing our workforce with the knowledge and experience they need to compete in a global marketplace. The Sunshine Coast has a unique entrepreneurial ecosystem of education programs, business incubators, co-working

spaces, events and meetups, which has developed organically across the community. Council has teamed up with My Weekly Preview to highlight to young people, the wealth of information and opportunities that are available to help connect and support them on their journey. The following pages provide a snapshot of some of the courses, programs, events and organisations that demonstrate the entrepreneurship, innovation and digital ecosystem that exists here on the Sunshine Coast.

Our Sunshine Coast is becoming one of Australia’s leading city regions for the 21st century. We are experiencing a time of growing prosperity as our community looks forward to what is sure to be a bright future. We are building a new economy based on a clear 20-year economic plan that supports transformational capital investment and encourages growth in seven highvalue industries that will provide a platform for enduring employment opportunities for our residents. We have ambitious goals and we are making very significant gains. The development of the new Maroochydore City Centre, which is underway, the Sunshine Coast Airport expansion, which is also underway, and the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital are among a handful of game-changer projects providing outstanding current and future career opportunities. We want as many of our young residents as possible to finish their studies on the Sunshine Coast and then pursue a career here, without having to leave their family and friends. On the back of our game-changer projects and private investment, I am pleased to report our Sunshine Coast now has the second highest percentage of jobs growth across Queensland and an unemployment rate that is a full percentage point below the state average. In addition to this, the region has again been named as one of the world’s Smart21 Communities, recognised for applying digital technology to deliver economic opportunities that lead to jobs, investment and development. Our region is also pursuing the opportunity to secure an international broadband network, which will connect the region and Queensland directly to international markets. This will provide the region with a significant competitive edge for businesses operating in a digital environment and potentially generate new employment opportunities within our knowledge, digital and other technology dependent industries. Investing in our young people and creating more opportunities for all of us is all about building resilience and certainty for the future of our communities. Here on the Sunshine Coast we are well placed to capitalise on the new opportunities that technology and innovation will enable, and the careers that will result. I encourage you to take advantage of the various events and programs that will show how you can be part of creating a region that is healthy, smart and creative.

AN ASSAULT ON THE SENSES Singapore has a diverse culinary scene, from hawker food to fine dining. WORDS: Candice Holznagel.


ingapore is one of the most visited cities in the world, and it’s no wonder. In a few short decades, the city state has built a solid reputation. It consistently ranks in the top five wealthiest countries. Its airlines are named among the best in the world; its architectural projects are setting global standards, as is the government’s investment in its ‘City in a Garden’ dream; and the South-East Asian island-nation was recently named second in the world for attracting global talent due to its strong education system. So, what next? Well, it seems that Singapore is now taking on the culinary scene. There are close to 40 Michelin-rated restaurants in the city and it’s no secret that Singaporeans take their food seriously. Whether it’s five-star fine dining or hawker fare, a trip to Singapore is

sure to tantalise your tastebuds. Here are four of our favourite places to dine and drink.

MANHATTAN Regent Singapore, A Four Seasons Hotel Slip into your finest cocktail wear and take a step back in time to 1920s New York where whisky bars were the height of sophistication – solid timber, rich velvet, fine crystal. This grand bar is inspired by the 19th Century’s Golden Age of cocktails and fine drinking. The world’s first in-hotel rickhouse was unveiled here in 2014 and there is no shortage of whisky – the bar features 100 American oak barrels, more than 150 whiskies and an impressive collection of liquor sourced from across the world. A shot can set you back anywhere from $25 to $600.

Impressive cocktails are produced by Singapore’s premier mixologists and bartenders who have access to Manhattan’s one-of-a-kind ingredients room, brimming with unusual ingredients like wild cherry bark, shisandra berries and dandelion root. In this bar, even ice is not simply ice – water of the highest quality and purity is hand-cut and stamped to perfectly complement the glass and liquor. Food is not an afterthought with a focus on iconic New York gastronomy. TIP: Don’t miss the adult-only Cocktail Brunch & Boozy Milkshakes on Sundays with unlimited drinks and bar-bites including barrel-smoked Balcones Texas whiskyinfused slow-roasted tomahawk.

MAXWELL FOOD CENTRE 1 Kadayanallur Street, Chinatown A visit to Singapore is not complete without a stop at this popular hawker centre. The centre is frequented by local residents – always an indication the food is good. Your first visit can be a little overwhelming, particularly for foodies, as there are well over 60 stalls to experience. This is the place to sample Singapore’s national dish, the Hainanese chicken rice. Patiently queue at the Tian Tian stall for a plate of boiled chicken served atop rice, cooked in chicken broth and topped with chef Mdm Foo Kui Lian’s secret sauce. It’s worth the wait. A few years ago Mdm Foo beat Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay in a cook-off. In addition to the famous dish, you will find an array of delightful plates at the many stalls. And, unlike the rest of Singapore, it’s cheap. A plate of chicken rice, a

Manhattan serving of vibrant coloured, garlic-infused greens and nasi goreng with prawns set us back $8. TIP: Try the beer at 3rd Culture Brewing Co. There are 12 rotating craft beers on tap.

SUMMER PALACE Regent Singapore, A Four Seasons Hotel Dine in traditional Chinese style at the Michelin one-star Summer Palace. You will find classic Cantonese dishes and dim sum delicacies produced by the restaurant’s two Hong Kong chefs.

JUMBO SEAFOOD The Riverwalk, adjacent to Clarke Quay Jumbo’s is a Singaporean institution, renowned for its award-winning chilli crab. Take a seat, pull on that large bib and get stuck into the deliciously fragrant and spicy dish. Keep in mind that the crab will set you back about $120 – but it’s worth every cent.

Heading to the Goldie and not sure where to eat? We’ve got you sorted. WORDS: By Kathryn Bermingham, AAP.


hink Gold Coast and you may think beaches, theme parks, surf and schoolies. Perhaps it’s not food, but it should be. In recent years, the region’s culinary scene has boomed. Here are some tips on where to spend a day that is packed full of foodie delights.

BREAKFAST Elk Espresso, Beachfront, Oasis Shopping Centre, Old Burleigh Road, Broadbeach In the beating heart of Broadbeach and bursting with locals is Elk. Its autumn brekky menu includes tried and true favourites complemented by creations like Black Forest French toast, spiced pork and cauliflower and savoury waffles.

LUNCH Cafe DBar, 275 Boundary Street, Coolangatta Come for the panoramic views offered on the second storey of this beachfront favourite, but stay for its seaside charm, locally-sourced food and outstanding coffee. In keeping with the ocean theme, try the Atlantic salmon poke bowl or let a juice or fruit smoothie hit the spot after a morning swim. Check out the art on display and the gifts and homewares boutique at the back of the cafe. Ask to sit upstairs where the views are stunning.



Mr PP’s Deli and Rooftop, 43 Nerang Street, Southport This Southport gem opened last year on the former site of the post master’s residence and is named after the first tenant, PP Agnew. Mr PP’s breezy rooftop bar looks out over the CBD. Its compact yet enticing menu includes pizza and platters to accompany cocktail jugs and an extensive wine list. Perfect.

GETTING THERE: Surfers Paradise is located about 175 kilometres south of Mooloolaba.

Explore the fjords, wander through the charming ports, and witness the rare wildlife on a Scandinavian adventure tour. From the Midnight Sun to the spectacular Northern Lights, Scandinavia has its own special brand of magic. The Bentours’ Grand Nordic Coast and Capitals group journey ranges from medieval towns to remote Arctic communities and delves into Lapland’s Sami culture, all while embracing the ever-changing landscapes.

FOOD FANATICS From the moment a young James Wilson discovered cooking classes at school, he ignited a passion that would become the base for a successful career both in the kitchen and as a businessman. The owner of Jimmy’s Catering Coffee Eats has honed his craft over more than 10 years before establishing a catering business in 2011 and his flagship cafe in 2016. Mr Wilson’s crew cater for large events and weddings of usually more than 100 guests and also provide intimate monthly dinners at the Kawana cafe, where a selected seasonal ingredient is the key element of the three-course meal. Last month’s dinner featured passionfruit. “We offer a full menu for breakfast and lunch and we are very proud of what we put out,” Mr Wilson says. “The thing I love most about the industry is the people you meet and you are always learning something new.”


dish! Atlantic salmon with balsamic roasted pumpkin, curry spiced mixed nuts, rocket and red onion salad with aioli (GF) by chef Justin Taylor from Maroochy Surf Club

This dish is a traditional favourite among both our long-term, loyal patrons and visiting guests. This salmon dish was inspired by the Maroochy Surf Club’s proximity to the ocean and also the need to have fresh, clean eating options for today’s health-conscious clientele. The dish is another of the many gluten free options offered on the menu. The key element of the dish is of course the freshly sourced Atlantic salmon from local

supplier Mooloolah River Fisheries. The chef sears the skin at high temperatures on a hot plate and finishes the salmon in the oven to ensure a perfectly cooked, moist flesh that melts in your mouth. Combining this with a salad of fresh rocket and red onion then adding some bite with the curry spiced nuts and balsamic roasted pumpkin gives beautiful flavours along with a high nutritional value.

NEW SONG SET TO SHINE The Sundowners are stoked with their new single, Ride to the Sun.


together really quickly for us and once we got it tight as a band, we rushed to the studio to lay it out before anyone could change up the essence of what the song is about.” The Sundowners recorded the track at Airlock Studios in Brisbane under the guidance of “audio genius” Yanto Browning. “With his help, we managed to get it all done in a day,” Mr Kilby says. “We have played most of our gigs on the Coast. We think the Sunshine Coast music scene is a flower waiting to bloom and we can’t wait to play plenty of music close to home.” Returning to the place in which they were first inspired to take the leap into the music industry, The Sundowners will be at Solbar in Maroochydore on May 4 at 6pm. Those who can’t make the gig can hear their debut single free on Soundcloud, Spotify or You Tube.

Sunshine Coast-based four-piece are poised to take the music scene by storm when they release their debut single Ride to the Sun on May 4. Lachy Kilby, Alex Walsh, Sam Reeves, Liam Sauer are collectively known as The Sundowners. The friends moved from Brisbane to Moffat Beach where Mr Kilby says they threw out the TV, learned to surf and spent countless hours jamming before watching a Pro Vita gig at Sol Bar inspired them to form a band. “Our main aim is to play bangerific music that literally drags you off your feet with a tight groove or epic hook, but still keep some lyrical/emotional depth there for those who like to check what’s under the rug,” he says. “The bare bones of the song came

When it comes to a child, lover or friend, you’re on a mission to correct their mistakes and change their behaviour. But, you’ll get a lot further if you criticise less and encourage more. The greatest realisation this week is that you can’t change anyone.

Are you sick and tired of being single? Romantic sparks are set to fly, as this week’s stars rev up your relationship zone. But, the course of true love won’t run smoothly. Take off your rose-coloured glasses and be prepared for a wild card.

Frustration levels rise on Monday, culminating in a disagreement with a friend or colleague (in person or online). Whatever happens, try to keep things in perspective and resist the temptation to be sarcastic, manipulative or just plain pushy.





Get set for a big week, as you overdo just about everything. Under the influence of the sun and Jupiter, you’re inclined to be generous and garrulous; enthusiastic and exhausting; restless and reckless; passionate and pushy.

Capricorns know that success doesn’t just drop out of the sky. So, this week’s stars are super for utilising every opportunity that comes your way, as you make things happen through hard work, organisation and forensic attention to details.

Creative communication is the secret to a successful week. But, resist the compelling urge to launch half-baked projects and jump to hasty conclusions. Listen closely to what others are telling you, otherwise you’ll misunderstand their motives.

The buzz word this week is honesty. Have you been less than truthful with a family member? On Monday and Tuesday, the Venus/Neptune square could lead to confusion involving your true motives, or someone could question your version of events.

1. The Muisca people come from which continent? 2. Field, ice, road, roller, unicycle, sledge, and air are all forms of what sport? 3. In which country is the Cat Ba National Park? 4.

6. The traditional Icelandic dish, ‘Hakarl’ consists of the putrefied meat of which animal? 7. Joan Jett is best known for her 1982 cover of which song? 8. Ibiza is part of which group of islands? 9. Who coined the phrase “Turn on, tune in, drop out.”? 10. Sweden’s Ice Hotel is built every year on which river?




LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23) The sun/Pluto trine will boost your charisma, so do something special on Saturday. Then, on Sunday, when Mercury and Uranus activate your travel zone, you’ll feel ready to introduce an international flavour to the mix.

You’ll feel frustrated and moody on Monday, but resist the temptation to start arguments and arouse opposition in others (especially loved ones). Be extra careful what you say, because hasty comments can cut like a knife.

Tact and discretion are the secrets to a stress-free week. But, expect an eventful weekend, when Mercury (your patron planet) squares Mars and links up with Uranus. Make sure your restless mood doesn’t lead to reckless behaviour and a loose tongue.

Draw inspiration from Katharine Hepburn (May 12, 1907). “You can’t just be talented; you have to be terribly smart and energetic and focused. Don’t just show up. Transform the work, yourself and everybody around you. ”




On Tuesday and Wednesday, you’ll feel restless and ready for spontaneous shenanigans and avant-garde adventures. Then, on Saturday, Mercury and Mars contribute to the tendency to argue and use words as weapons.

with MWP’s man in the water

So the big wave awards were announced on the weekend and Andrew Cotton from the UK won the best wipeout. Man, he showed commitment beyond his years and got so drilled that the wave broke his back. Yeah, for 5K I’d rather watch and be able to walk. But good luck to him. Now, the first wave pool comp is on and to be honest, I think it will be terrible… a bit like watching ice skating. Not sure where the WSL is heading but the vibe does not suit the traditional surfer scene. Next real comp is in sewage waves in Brazil, so I suggest Kelly Slater will not be attending. A few waves around this weekend, so enjoy.

a beautiful place to live. Many of our first time visitors are quite surprised to hear that we have over 25 hectares of parkland within our Sunshine Cove community. Of course our larger parks like Wises, are easy to spot but it’s not until you take a wander along the streets that you can appreciate just how well our green spaces integrate our residential precincts into the larger parks and reserves. This weekend come take a look for yourself.
