FROM THE EDITOR

I

t was in 2008 that I first logged on to Facebook – four years after the social network’s birth. In those days, if you wanted to upload a post, it was done on your PC. There was no Instagram or Snapchat, and selfies were taken on a whim rather than planned, staged and executed with fine precision. I’m showing my age, aren’t I? At that time, Facebook had 145 million users worldwide. Today there are more than 2.20 billion monthly active users and social media has become a staple part of everyday life, for everyday people. Whether you are a high school student, in your twenties, or a 60-year-old retiree, chances are you use some form of social media. All you have to do is look around any park, beach, shopping centre or restaurant to see how heavily this new form of communication has embedded itself in our lives. It’s not uncommon to witness families or couples engrossed in their smartphones over a leisurely Sunday morning breakfast. Many of us are guilty of being swept up in this new form of reality. But, at what expense? This week, we delve into the issues that have come with social media and speak with two Sunshine Coast psychologists about these risks. You can read the story on page 10. Also, this edition, we had the pleasure of speaking with Aussie country music icon Kasey Chambers ahead of her Caloundra visit later this month and talk about redefining beauty with US photographer Rick Guidotti. Enjoy.

OUR PLACE

BY THE NUMBERS

45 PER CENT

During the 1990s there was a protracted, and at times acrimonious, battle by a group of residents who wished to see preserved ‘something of nature between the two rivers, close to the sea’. The result is Alex Forest. Subsequently the then Maroochy Shire Council instigated an environment levy for the purpose of buying significant land. This is the levy we know today.

Youth mental health support service ReachOut surveyed parents of 12- to 18-year-olds and found 45 per cent were worried about their child’s social media use.

COVER STORY

SLAVES TO SOCIAL MEDIA

It’s cheap and fun, but it’s also highly addictive and damaging to our mental health and relationships. So, is it time to switch off from social media and reclaim our lives? WORDS: Candice Holznagel.

“People are neglecting real friends and relationships in favour of excessive social media use, which appears to be quite detrimental” Dr Rachael Sharman

I

’ll openly admit I’m an avid social media user. I rotate between three Instagram profiles, two Facebook accounts and jumped on board the Snapchat train without hesitation. But for the past 10 days, I have been social media free and it feels great. But my decision didn’t come without hesitation. What would I miss? How would I communicate? Could I actually do it? There were a couple of factors that contributed to my decision – one being a disturbing article I read about the affect social media is having on our memories. Secondly, I was becoming aware of an incessant pull towards my phone. Checking social media is the last thing I do at night and it is the first thing I do in the morning. I came to realise I had a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out) and it was starting to impact my day-to-day life. So, what did I discover? For one, more time. I have been more productive and motivated around the house. I also have a renewed interest in the tasks that I love – reading, cooking and interior design. Although communication opened up at home, it declined in other areas. I’ve become accustomed to ‘chatting’ with my closest friends and family through social media and all of a sudden these channels were closed. “When social media is used in moderation to keep in touch with family and friends it may be okay,” says leading University of the Sunshine Coast senior lecturer in psychology Dr Rachael Sharman. “However, there is an increasing body of research demonstrating that people are neglecting real friends and relationships in

favour of excessive social media use, which appears to be quite detrimental to their mental health.” Technological advancements have changed the way we share and interact. A decade ago, Facebook had 145 million users worldwide. Today there are more than 2.20 billion monthly active users. The Digital in 2018 in Oceania report by We Are Social and Hootsuite, reveals 69 per cent – or 17 million – Australians are active social media users, a number that has grown six per cent in 12 months. We spend five and a half hours a day accessing the internet, which includes one

investigating whether this form of addiction can be classed as a mental disorder. In 2017, scientists developed a psychological behavioural scale for ‘selfitis’ – the obsession with taking selfies, and earlier this year the World Health Organisation revealed that video gaming addiction is now a mental health condition. So, who’s to say social media won’t be next? Psychologists at Nottingham Trent University, a global leader in addiction research, this month revealed their findings into the study of addiction and social networking sites. The study investigated UK participants’ personalities and their social

hour and 39 minutes using social media. YouTube attracts the biggest user share, with 195.3 million monthly visits, and Facebook follows with 150.6 million. So, are we addicted? Dr Lynette Maguire believes so. The social commentator, who studied narcissism for her doctorate at the University of the Sunshine Coast and has majored in psychology, says we have a problem. The evidence backs up her claim, with researchers and psychologists now

media use. The team deemed five per cent of participants as being at high risk. The factors driving their addictive behaviour included FOMO, irrational beliefs and poor mental health. Official condition or not, there is no denying that social media – and smartphone use in general – triggers our dopamine levels. Even the founding president of Facebook, Sean Parker, recently weighed in on the issue. “[He] recently admitted that triggering the neurotransmitter dopamine, was very

much part of their tactic to get us to consume as much of our time and conscious attention as possible,’’ Dr Maguire says. “Every time we get a like, share or a message, we get a little dopamine hit which is why we spend more time on social media – checking our phones at the checkouts or waiting for a bus. Dopamine is linked to addictive behaviour and these platforms are designed to target this human vulnerability. “The tech designers understand what triggers dopamine surges, and they work toward creating products that are laced with hijacking techniques which in turn lure us in, creating compulsion loops. “They know that the strongest way to reinforce behaviour is by a random schedule, so that’s why we compulsively check our phone wanting a little dopamine hug – whether it be by a like, share, digital confetti shower, or a friend’s post.” Dr Sharman agrees that dopamine levels are triggered by social media. “Even receiving text messages and likes typically operates on an intermittent reinforcement schedule, which is exactly the same method used by pokie manufacturers. Also in the case of social media, you are invoking anticipatory dopamine, which is stronger than the dopamine produced by the actual experience. “It’s interesting that a number of Facebook executives and Silicon Valley experts actually ban their children from social media. They clearly know something we don’t… yet. I think it’s fair to put in sensible limits around social media use and to ensure you as a parent model that behaviour.” In December, ReachOut – a youth mental myweeklypreview.com.au

COVER STORY health support service – surveyed parents of 12- to 18-year-olds and found that 45 per cent were worried about their children’s social media use. Technology followed at 42 per cent, while 25 per cent were worried about drugs and alcohol. But what example are parents setting? “Last year I sat in a cafe in Noosa when a couple arrived with their toddler son,’’ Dr Sharman recalls. “They ordered breakfast and then both mum and dad sat scrolling through their smartphones and handed an iPad to the toddler, who was able to use it with a surprising level of skill. The entire time I was there, no one in that family even looked at each other, let alone used any kind of old-fashioned verbal communication. “I think that says it all and you can pretty much guarantee that child will develop impaired social skills. “Some research conducted last year by my Honours student, Tharen Kander, demonstrated that higher use of social media in a young cohort was related to impaired ability to correctly read emotions, form high quality in-real-life friendships, which led to higher levels of depression.” In January, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared a post in which he said the company’s focus for 2018 was to make sure the time spent on Facebook was well spent. “We feel a responsibility to make sure our services aren’t just fun to use, but also good for people’s wellbeing,” he wrote. “Based on this, we’re making a major change to how we build Facebook. I’m changing the goal I give our product teams from focusing on helping you find relevant content, to helping you have more meaningful social interactions.”

OUR LOVE FOR SOCIAL MEDIA >>

DIGITAL DETOX Wanting to reduce your time spent on social media? Follow these suggestions: Find a healthy activity as an alternative to screen time, that sets off the same dopamine release, ie. a fun family activity Introduce this rule: an hour of screen time equals an hour of outside time Remove technology from bedrooms Change the wifi password every day – when chores are done, give the children the password Have tech free days, weekends or weeks. Both Dr Sharman and Dr Maguire agree social media inhibits people from living mindfully and impacts on our memories. In a study published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology in May this year, researchers demonstrated how those who share their experiences on social media have limited memories. “Across three studies, participants without [social] media consistently remembered their experience more precisely than participants who used media. There is no conclusive evidence that media use impacted subjective measures of experience. Together, these findings suggest that using media may prevent people from remembering the very events they are attempting to preserve,” the report concludes. “There’s an increasing body of research

that suggests social media is interfering with our memory,’’ Dr Sharman explains. “The mechanism is probably two-fold, if your attention is shared and unfocussed by trying to concentrate on your Facebook feed and dinner conversation at the same time, you won’t process a strong memory of what was said over dinner. Secondly, there has been research to suggest that if you take a photo, you unconsciously spend less effort attempting to memorise the scene. “You cannot be plugged into your environment, conversations with so-called significant others, if you are constantly distracted by communications elsewhere.” Dr Maguire says social media creates a hyperreality, a copy of the real, which hijacks our lives and our perceptions. “We then need to spend time endorsing our hyperreal profiles by posting selfies with cocktails, or on the beach,” she says. “Have you noticed no one posts selfies of them doing the vacuuming? Research shows the more time we spend on social media, the more likely we are to have depression or anxiety. For example, we’re doing the vacuuming and when we stop for our dopamine hit, we see someone’s beach cocktail post, and we deem our lives not as fabulous. It’s a nasty cycle that detracts us from being present and enjoying life. “I was heartened to hear of a digital app maker called Dopamine Labs who run ethics tests on apps they are asked to build, with questions such as: ‘does this app encourage human flourishing?’ With technology changing so fast, we can only hope that the designers of these programs start considering the end result for humanity, rather than financial gain.”

IS ANYTHING PRIVATE ANYMORE? Facebook says a software bug made some private posts public for as many as 14 million users over several days in May. The problem, which Facebook said it has fixed, is the latest privacy scandal for the world’s largest social media company. It said the bug automatically suggested that users make new posts public, even if they had previously restricted posts to “friends only” or another private setting. If users did not notice the new default suggestion, they unwittingly sent their post to a broader audience than they had intended. The news follows recent furore over Facebook’s sharing of user data with device makers, including China’s Huawei. Last week, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull threw his support behind a push to get Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg to answer questions over the social network sharing personal user data with Chinese tech giant Huawei. Senior members of the federal parliament’s powerful intelligence committee want the 34-year-old Facebook tsar to answer questions about the controversial data deal. “I would welcome Facebook coming and testifying before our parliamentary committee,” the prime minister told reporters in Brisbane last Thursday. “Of course, we’d love to see the boss, naturally, he is the founder.” Labor MP Anthony Byrne, deputy chair of the joint intelligence and security committee, said Mr Zuckerberg owed Australia’s Facebook users some answers. “It is completely unacceptable that information from Facebook users has been slyly handed over to Huawei by Facebook,” Mr Byrne said. The company is also still recovering from the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which a Trump-affiliated data-mining firm got access to the personal data of as many as 87 million Facebook users. – AAP

STATE COUGHS UP SOME CASH… BUT NOT ENOUGH The State Government has invested heavily in the North Coast Rail Line and health infrastructure for the Sunshine Coast in its 2018/19 budget, which was released on Tuesday. A commitment of $160.8 million has been made towards the urgently-needed rail duplication works from Beerburrum to Nambour. Mayor Mark Jamieson has expressed concerns the state’s commitment falls short of the $390 million required to match the Federal Government’s funding allocation to complete the $780-million project. “This commitment may be enough to get the ball rolling, but quite simply, the residents of the Sunshine Coast expect that the project will be delivered in full and want to know when it will be delivered,” he says. “The commitment from the Palaszczuk Government of 20 per cent of the funding required to upgrade what is their asset, is not sufficient – and particularly when the investment should have occurred years ago. I am very concerned that the once again, the Sunshine Coast has been left short.” Traditionally, an 80:20 funding model is used for national infrastructure, but Mr Jamieson says the rail line is state-owned and a 50:50 model is appropriate. Meanwhile, Health and Ambulance Services Minister Steven Miles says Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service will have an operating budget of $1.196 billion in 2018–19, a 3.6 per cent growth on the previous financial year. “We are providing $41.4 million in growth funding to meet increased demand for emergency services, elective surgery and outpatients,” Mr Miles says.

JULIAN WILSON BACK ON TOP AFTER BALI Peregian surfer Julian Wilson is back on top of the world tour ladder after securing a runner-up result at the Uluwatu event in Bali on the weekend. Despite pulling out a strong performance in a three-man round four heat, a quarter final against Jordy Smith of South Africa and a semi-final against American Kolohe Andino, Mr Wilson was unable to topple Brazilian Willian Cardoso, who edged him out with a score of 15.57 to Mr Wilson’s 14.43 in the final. The position has seen him pull up from third on the WSL Championship Tour, rating to first place after five rounds on the circuit. With six rounds remaining, Mr Wilson says he is “not getting carried away”.

Forty artists have been revealed as finalists in the Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2018. Selected from a high calibre field of 325 entries, their work will be showcased at Caloundra Regional Gallery from August 16 to October 14, with the winner to be announced at the exhibition opening on August 30. Arts Portfolio Councillor Rick Baberowski says the growing acclaim of the art prize has seen its reach spread far and wide. Our local finalists are Sam Cranstoun, AJ Taylor, Margaret Turner, Tori Beeche and Kim Guthrie. The artworks can be viewed online now by visiting gallery.sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au.

QUEEN’S BIRTHDAY HONOURS ANNOUNCED An Olympian, an Antarctic explorer and a legendary musician are among the Sunshine Coast locals recognised in the Queen’s Birthday 2018 Honours List. Olympic swimmer Dawn Fraser (pictured), who lives in Noosaville and who won eight Olympic medals including the 100 metres freestyle gold at three successive games, was appointed a Companion of the Order of Australia for her service to sport. The late Phil Emmanuel, a Buderim-based musician who died last month after a sudden asthma attack, has been recognised with an Order of Australia medal for his service to music and Antarctic explorer Sydney Kirkby, who lives in Flaxton, was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia.

FOCUS ON NEW GREEN TARGETS Some Coast supermarkets are going a step further in the plastic bag ban. By Belinda Tasker, AAP.

S

upermarket giants Coles and Woolworths are stepping up their war on plastic, introducing new targets to slash the amount of wrapping on fresh fruit and vegetables as well as tackling food waste. The retailers on Monday committed to going further than their previous announcements to ditch single-use plastic bags in response to demands from consumers. “We know that 69 per cent of customers say that we need to actively reduce waste and landfill through recyclable packaging and find alternative uses for waste,” Coles managing director John Durkan says. Coles pledged to reduce plastic wrapping on fruit and vegies, including bunches of bananas, kale and silverbeet, and replace meat and poultry packaging with recycled and renewable materials. It set itself a deadline of 2020 to halve food waste from its supermarkets and make all packaging of its home-brand products recyclable. The retailer will also donate the equivalent of 100 million meals to people in need by redistributing surplus food. Rival Woolworths will ban plastic straws by the end of this year, while its program to remove plastic wrap from fruit and vegies will be expanded to include another 80 products. It’s also looking to expand its food waste reduction programs to all stores. “While we’ve made progress in reducing the amount of plastic in our stores, supported recycling labelling initiatives,

and made improvements in energy efficiency, sustainable sourcing and reducing food waste, we know that more needs to be done to meet our customers’ expectations,” chief executive Brad Banducci says. Greenpeace Australia welcomed the move by the retailers as a step in the right direction. “People are infuriated by this. You only have to do a search on social media and see people enraged by apples wrapped in plastic,” a spokesman says. The step-up in the campaign against waste by Coles and Woolies comes a week after the European Union outlined plans to ban single-use plastic straws, cutlery and cotton buds. The supermarket chains last July joined a push to rid Australia of disposable plastic bags, and set a deadline of June 30, 2018 for their stores to stop offering them to shoppers. Woolworths later brought forward that deadline to June 20. Queensland and Western Australia are also introducing state-wide bans on single-use plastic bags on July 1.

CHECK IT OUT BANNED HDPE (standard petrochemical) lightweight plastic shopping bags, compostable, degradable and biodegradable lightweight plastic shopping bags. ALLOWED Barrier bags for unpackaged perishable food such as fruit, vegetables, meat and fish, bin liners and garbage bags, single-use heavy weight department store plastic bags, plastic nappy bags, ‘dog poo’ bags. ALTERNATIVES Reusable ‘green’ bags, reusable hessian bags, reusable freezer or ‘cold’ bags, string bags, cotton bags, heavy-duty plastic bags designed for reuse or multiple uses.

BLOOMHILL BAGS ON THE WAY Bloomhill Cancer Care’s 11 Sunshine Coast op shops are leading the way ahead of the upcoming Ban the Bag campaign, which will see the Queensland Government ban plastic bags from July 1. Bloomhill kicked off a plastic bag ban a month early, giving Coast residents a chance to adapt to the sweeping changes, which will see retailers banned from supplying all lightweight plastic bags, including biodegradable, compostable and degradable bags, for free or at a cost. Bloomhill CEO Chris Franck says the decision to implement the ban early is an initiative of the organisation’s op shop managers and volunteers, who were keen to get on board. “We are encouraging our shoppers to start bringing their own fabric or reusable bags when they shop in our stores,” Mr Franck says. “This is a positive initiative and we are very keen to see the changes come into effect as this will be a very welcome change for the environment.” Mr Franck says the Bloomhill Community Relations team were also investigating designs for a fabric bag featuring the Bloomhill logo. These will then be included as part of the merchandise available for sale, raising valuable funds for the charity. The state-wide ban was created in response to the use of close to one billion single-use lightweight plastic shopping bags in Queensland each year. While the majority of these bags end up in landfill, around 16 million plastic shopping bags – the equivalent in weight to 96 small cars – end up in the environment in Queensland each year. The State Government and National Retail Association have been working with retailers as varied as grocery stores, fashion boutiques, convenience stores and fast food outlets before the July 1 change and the container refund scheme is on schedule to be introduced on November 1. – Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane

— 10 REASONS WHY THERE’S LOTS TO LOVE ABOUT BRIGHTWATER Stockland’s award-winning Brightwater community has been making waves since the first homes started popping up just under a decade ago. The vibrant Mountain Creek enclave has already won the hearts of thousands of residents and the last chance to buy new homes in Brightwater is now available through Stockland’s popular Mainwaring Collection of townhomes. Homebuyers are benefitting from the thriving and mature nature of the community, with the final block of land snapped up in in 2017. Here are just 10 of the reasons why Brightwater is feeling the love: 1. Community vibe: if you’re all for a friendly smile and a strong sense of community spirit then Brightwater is the place for you. There are numerous active community groups and plenty of opportunities to meet your new neighbours. 2. Stunning views: it’s hard to miss the 12ha Brightwater Lake which is the community’s pride and joy. Take a kayak for a paddle or picnic in the nearest lakefront park. 3. Waterside exercise: healthy outdoor exercise options are in abundance. Enjoy a walk around the waterways and parkland, take part in a lakeside fitness session, join the gym or sign up to the weekly Brightwater parkrun. 4. Eating out: catch up with friends or take the family out with a range of dining options. Watch the sun set over the lake while enjoying a glass of wine at the Brightwater Hotel. 5. Onsite education: Brightwater has this covered with a highly sought-after state primary school and early learning centre. Other quality schools and tertiary campuses are close by.

6. Retail therapy: all your daily needs are catered for at Brightwater Marketplace, including a supermarket, specialty stores, medical centre and dentist. For serious retail therapy, a number of major shopping centres are within 15 minutes’ drive. 7. Surf’s up: while the tranquil waters of Brightwater Lake are soothing to the soul, it’s also just a short drive to one of the nearest beaches for a sneaky surf. 8. Walkability: a network of walking and cycle paths throughout the community join to other neighbourhoods and link to the coastal edges. There’s also a ‘walking school bus’ program so children can safely walk to school. 9. Natural attraction: finding your zen is easier when there’s plenty of natural inspiration. Brightwater is located next to Mooloolah River National Park and is bounded by environmental reserves and waterways. 10. Location, location: with so many good things going on in Brightwater itself, it’s easy to forget just how close you are to major facilities on the Coast. The Sunshine Coast Health Precinct and future Birtinya Town Centre are less than 10 minutes away while Sunshine Coast Airport is just a 20 minute drive. The final stage of the Mainwaring Collection of townhomes at Brightwater, the Affina release, comprises 36 stylish three and four bedroom designs situated across the lake from shops, cafes and the Brightwater Hotel.

PETS SHOULD BE FOR LIFE

Local animal shelters are under pressure as the RSPCA announces it is at capacity. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

W

ith Australia’s largest animal welfare organisation declaring it was at capacity and would no longer accept surrendered animals, the pressure has been put on smaller organisations across the country. The RSPCA, which accepted more than 130,000 animals last year, has been diverting people to organisations like the Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge and 4 Paws Animal Rescue. 4 Paws president Julie Penlington says her organisation is “always on catch-up” when it comes to meeting demand to find foster homes for unwanted animals, but she says the RSPCA’s move has exacerbated the problem for the smaller organisations, which are also both at capacity. “We took in six surrenders over just two days (last week) and we are getting calls from people who have been referred to us from the RSPCA. We are struggling with up to 20 people wanting to surrender cats each week,” she says. There are a range of reasons why people surrender their pets, from moving to homes that don’t allow animals, to older residents who are struggling to continue to care for their pets, or residents who are moving into

assisted or palliative care. Ms Penlington says there has been a dramatic increase in the number of people surrendering pets simply because they no longer fit into their lifestyle. “These people have a cavalier ‘I need to move on’ attitude. I think people have such disposable incomes now that some view pet ownership the same as owning the latest electronic gadget and think nothing of spending $1500 on a dog, only to find out it is a lot of work [to care for a pet],” she says.

“We are finding that when they do surrender these dogs, they have often not desexed them, given them vaccinations or heartworm treatments, so we undertake all of that before we move on to find the animals a foster home and then permanent home. “Any pet is a minimum 15-year commitment and there are also financial commitments going forward. Realistically these days, you have to get some sort of pet insurance, or put away money each week, like a Christmas club for emergencies. Of

course, prevention’s the key and regular vaccinations and checks each year nip these things in the bud.” Such has been the volume of surrenders that Ms Penlington says the demographics of pets available for adoption has greatly shifted. “Fifteen years ago, you would find mainly staffies and working dogs, but these days we are getting all sorts of dogs and that’s due to the puppy mill factor. People going out paying big money for little cross-breed dogs and then surrendering them a year or two later.” SCARS operations manager Penny Brischke says they have seen a larger than usual number of adult cats being surrendered to their Sippy Creek site. “We are one of the only organisations on the Coast that can take adult cats in the volumes we take them in, and the RSPCA took a reasonable amount of pressure off us when we were full and overflowing. It has been a really heartbreaking struggle to lose that assistance,” she says. “Cats have always been harder for us to find forever homes for, but we’ve never had problems to this degree. We have noticed the impact of losing such a major national welfare body who closed off because they

LOCAL NEWS too were struggling.” Ms Brischke says they had 60 cats on waiting lists to be surrendered on top of the 40 cats already in the refuge and a further 30, mostly kittens, in foster care awaiting adoption. “We just finished a Mayday Mayday promotion, where we made all adult cats $49 to adopt and that didn’t really make a difference. The price isn’t the issue, it’s the [lack of] demand from people that is the issue,” she says. The challenge they now face is what will happen to the cats who cannot be surrendered due to their capacity issues. Ms Brischke says they could see more healthy cats being euthanised or abandoned. The latter means cats that haven’t been desexed can breed unchecked. “They are prolific reproducers and can have a couple of litters a year. They can get pregnant from just five-and-a-half months of age and they can undergo a constant breeding cycle. I think because this is largely unseen, people don’t understand how big the issue is,” she says. “The key is to desex your cats and we have a program where you can access vouchers that allow you to do that at supporting vets across the Coast for less than a third of the usual cost.” Ms Penlington and Ms Brischke’s message is simple – know and accept the

commitment you are making before you choose to get a pet and when you do decide to get a pet adopt, don’t shop. 4 Paws is always on the lookout for new foster homes for surrendered animals as well as long-term carers and sponsors for their Permanent Residents program, which finds forever homes for animals with health

“We are struggling with up to 20 people wanting to surrender cats each week” conditions and provides financial support for the carers for the rest of the animal’s life. The organisation is 100 per cent run by volunteers, so every cent donated goes to providing for the animals in their care. “Every pet I think of as my pet and I want to be able to put my head down at night and know that our animals have gone to the best possible home,” Ms Penlington says.

Is Mental Fatigue and Reduced Brain Function Impairing your Decision Making, Productivity and Relationships? Find the causes behind the mental fatigue epidemic sweeping Australia Difficulty concentrating or feeling fatigued as the day goes on? Do you suffer with broken sleep and waking unrefreshed? Walking into a room only to forget what you were looking for, or feeling overwhelmed by your usual work load? Difficulty finding words or recalling events recently? When these symptoms inhibit your ability to function daily we need to reconsider what is normal and understand that they can be easily reversed. Impaired cognitive function can be exhausting leaving you drained and unable to connect with family, creating relationship patterns that may be harmful. It’s common to blame aging, however, this may be your biggest mistake, falling further into mental and physical fatigue as time goes on, while the real problem goes unresolved.

“The Cascade Effect can reduce your cognitive function for up to 6 months or indefinitely if left untreated” The cascade effect that creates these conditions are a combination of factors rather than just one cause. A highly intense stressful event or short illness may drive the body toward a myriad of effects triggering like dominoes. Once this cascade begins, it creates symptoms of adrenal fatigue, thyroid hypofunction, fluid retention, and deficiencies of necessary vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. These are required to provide optimal brain function, and energy to produce dopamine for motivation, adrenalin for energy, serotonin for mood, and many more responsible for memory and problem solving. It only takes one missing nutrient to interrupt a biochemical pathway required to complete a function in the body or brain. It can be very simple to rectify, if correctly diagnosed through thorough, yet easily available pathology testing. Memory, mood, hormonal and energy issues are not untreatable. Every individual has a cause that is unique and easy to find with the right investigation. You have a choice. Change the path of your life for the better, for you and your family.

or many years, New York photographer Rick Guidotti photographed supermodels for the biggest brands in fashion and cosmetics, but 20 years ago, a chance encounter set him on a new path in his work, which would ultimately change his life. He’d just left his New York City studio having photographed Cindy Crawford, when he saw a girl waiting for a bus. She was blindingly beautiful, with long white hair and porcelain skin, a girl with albinism. He set about researching the genetic condition and contacted the albinism support group NOAH (National Organisation for Albinism and Hyperpigmentation), explaining he was a fashion photographer who wanted to show the world the beauty of albinism. “At first they were resistant,” he says. “Every time there was a magazine article or anything about albinism, it was always a story about a victim. I said, I can’t find any positive imagery. Let’s form a partnership and form a photographic exhibition that will celebrate this condition, and they agreed. Sixteen-year-old Christine was his first model and presented a new challenge for Mr Guidotti, one he’d never faced in the world of ‘beautiful’ people. “Christine walked into the studio and she was so beautiful,” he says. “But her shoulders were hunched, her head was down, she was giving one-word answers. There was zero eye contact. This kid had zero self-esteem as a result of bullying. It broke my heart and I thought, how am I going to photograph her? “I literally held up a mirror to her face and said, ‘look at yourself, you’re magnificent’. She saw what I saw and then she put her hands on her hips and blew up in a smile that lit up New York City. She coined the phrase: ‘change how you see, see how you change’.” The images he shot for that first exhibition appeared on the cover of Life magazine in 1998 and Mr Guidotti’s project, Positive Exposure was born. He now travels the world photographing children and young people affected by genetic disease in order to celebrate difference and challenge our perceptions of beauty. An adjunct professor with the University of the Sunshine Coast, he last week launched his exhibition Redefining Beauty at Sunshine Plaza, curated by the university’s art gallery manager Megan Williams. The first of its kind in Australia, it was commissioned by the Chromosome 18 Registry & Research Society Australasia and focuses on children and adults affected by various genetic conditions located on the 18th chromosome, as well

Rick Guidotti and above, one of the images from his exhibition at Sunshine Plaza

as others living with rare genetic conditions. “We had our big opening on June 6 and every person we photographed a few months back, they all came with their family and friends. The Plaza is projecting the images on its digital screen and the respect for the images here is amazing.” There’s a universal message of empowerment behind the exhibition, which celebrates all difference and promotes equity and inclusion. “We all have to have the freedom to find beauty where we’re told it doesn’t exist,” says Mr Guidotto. “We’re constantly directed as to where beauty lives, where beauty exists. When you see, you realise it’s all around you, everything is in technicolour all of a sudden, it’s so energising and exciting. “Beauty is in the eyes, in a gesture, in a swagger, it exists but you have to be ready to see it. How often did I walk by

that girl waiting for a bus in New York City before I was ready to see her? This exhibition gives you the edge to see that beauty and embrace it.” While Mr Guidotti loved his career in fashion photography and reached the heights of his profession, he felt constrained by the standard beauty ideal and wanted to look deeper. He left that world 10 years ago and his heart is now with the people who don’t make the cover of Vogue. “It’s just as exciting working in this world. When I was in the fashion world, I felt I was part of image making. I was just taking a photo. Now I’m collaborating with families. “As I’m photographing somebody in front of a lens, always looking over their shoulder is a mum or a brother or a sister who is beaming, because somebody finally sees that beautiful person through their eyes. “Nothing beats that.”

The exhibition comprises 40 images and is on display at Sunshine Plaza until July 15.

DEMAND FOR THE FLU VACCINE OFFERS OPPORTUNITIES

F

lu season is well underway as I am sure many of you are aware. We’ve heard reports in the news of flu vaccine shortages across Australia as many elderly, young, and at-risk individuals line up for their flu shots. Many of you would have heard of a locally-based company called CSL. CSL is a biopharmaceutical company that researches, develops, manufactures and markets products to treat a number of medical conditions. Pharmaceutical group CSL recently raised its net profit guidance for fiscal 2018 to US$1.68–1.71 billion, up from US$1.55– 1.6 billion, with the company attributing the upgrade to the timing of costs and a

maiden profit from the flu vaccine division. The company noted the stronger than anticipated result was due to a “confluence of positive outcomes” implying some good fortune and timing came into play. Ord Minnett, however, also sees the rise in guidance as confirming the prescience of CSL’s aggressive investment in plasma collections. The new guidance implies an upgrade of 9.5 per cent, in effect, when a currency tailwind of US$30 million is included, and

“Research and development costs came in below expectations” gives a range of US$1.71–1.74 million. Most notably, the recently-formed Seqirus vaccine benefited from the strong northern hemisphere flu season. Meanwhile, research and development costs came in below expectations due to delayed dosing in trials of the muchanticipated CSL 112 trial drug. This treatment, designed to rapidly remove cholesterol from the arteries and stabilise

lesions at risk of rupture, reduces the high incidence of early recurrent cardiovascular events in the days and weeks following an initial heart attack. The company will provide profit guidance for fiscal 2019 when it reports its fiscal 2018 result in August. Despite the strong conditions, we expect CSL to retain its usual conservatism given the uncertainty arising from impending product launches and the flu season. This may see management’s guidance fall short of our own profit forecast. We have raised our earnings estimates by four per cent for fiscal 2018 and 2019 following the guidance upgrade. The positive factors mentioned above are also expected to support further gross margin expansion, confirming a multiyear trend. Operating margins should lift in fiscal 2018 given the phasing of expenses, although we expect this trend to moderate in fiscal 2019 as research and development costs rise.

SUNREEF’S NEW VENTURE Sunreef Mooloolaba, is expanding its business, adding Whale One to its portfolio. The expansion adds to Sunreef’s purchase of adventure hire company Hire Hut at the beginning of the year. Sunreef owner Dan Hart says the company has a strong affinity with the region. “We love the Sunshine Coast and believe strongly in the tourism and hospitality sector here and are proud to have the successful Whale One operations now powered by Sunreef Mooloolaba.” He says since purchasing Sunreef Mooloolaba in 2012, they’ve worked hard to grow the business, employing locals and diversifying their offerings. “We started our expansion with the introduction of Australia’s first swim with humpback whales experience in 2014. “The Sunshine Coast is an incredible region and we love showcasing it to tourists from all over Australia.”

TRAVEL online for pay-in-advance discounts and combination specials such as the two-for-one ticket to the Queen’s Gallery and Royal Mews. West End shows are another area where you can easily drop a bundle. But if you’re flexible on times and shows, discount tickets and last-minute bargains are available in-person at the TKTS office in Leicester Square. You can also book online at officiallondontheatre.com/theatre-tickets/.

Prices and crowds drop outside those months. I chose March and had typically damp and chilly weather with a few sunny afternoons. Right now, when all your friends are complaining about how much they’re spending on summer trips to Europe, is the time to book your trip for autumn.

BET ON THE BURBS The farther out you go from the heart of London, the cheaper the accommodation. Just make sure you’re within an easy walk from the underground or “tube” and build a little extra time into your itinerary for your commute into town. I chose an Airbnb in suburban Hammersmith, which came to about $A105 a night.

HOW TO DO LONDON ON A BUDGET

TAKE A PASS

Now the Royal wedding fever has faded, you can plan a trip to London without spending a small fortune. WORDS: Michelle Locke, AAP.

T

he sun-kissed scenes from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s storybook wedding at Windsor may have put you in the mood to visit the Old Country. But what if you’re just looking to feel like a prince (or princess), not spend like one? Here are a few tips on enjoying London

on a budget. (Just don’t count on the sunshine that blessed the royal wedding in a place where on average it rains about one out of every three days.)

Since I knew I was going to be visiting a lot of paid attractions, I bought a London Pass, a multi-venue card. The drawback to this kind of option is one can feel pressured to rush around and get maximum value. My goal was to avoid ticket lines and not lose money. I paid about $A250 for a six-day pass that came with an Oyster transit card preloaded with about $A50. I visited all the places I wanted, including Windsor Castle (train fare is included in the pass) and rode a hop-on, hopoff bus for a day. I didn’t max out the pass but did come out about $A165 ahead. If you’d rather take a more curated approach, look

Afterwards, walk along the river path (past Shakespeare’s Globe) to Borough Market Hall (2–4 Bedale Street, closed Sundays), a trendy spot where you can try specialties like the cheese toastie at Kappacasein. Keep walking to reach London Bridge and, if you’re thirsty, stay on the south side of the river and check out the 17thcentury George Inn (77 Borough High Street). Or, retrace your steps to the Tate and cross the pedestrian Millennium Bridge to St. Paul’s. If it’s close to 5pm you’ll catch evensong at the cathedral, which is free.

Or, you can stop by F&M’s more casual restaurant, The Parlour, where for about $A20 I enjoyed excellent scones, free wifi and, quite simply, the best cup of tea of my life. If the weather’s fine, consider an al fresco repast, picking up some snacks at Harrods famous food hall and enjoying them in nearby Hyde Park.

It’s hard to walk in for a look without a ticket but timed tickets are free, though sunset hours go fast: skygarden.london/booking. You’re not obligated to buy anything at the bar, but if you do, the drinks, not surprisingly, come at a premium. Sometimes, of course, one simply must splash out. For my visit, I paid 15 pounds ($A25) for a glass of champagne, sat back, savored the view, and slowly sipped, enjoying every last, overpriced bubble. Cheers, indeed.

Lovely lavender has been a big trend for nails during spring in the northern hemisphere, with searches for ‘lavender nail polish’ on Pinterest having increased by 800 per cent in the past year. No need to wait for our spring with these pretty shades out now.

By Emily Bickhoff Popular YouTuber Gracie Piscopo has released a new product called The Wing. In your pack you receive two eyeliner stamps, one for each eye, which allows you to create an instant, perfectly-shaped wing. I was very sceptical of this product at first, but after testing it myself, I was very impressed. While $34.99 is almost double the cost of your typical eyeliner, the amount of time you’ll save using The Wing makes it worthwhile. An added bonus is that it’s cruelty-free and vegan certified.

education, I learned to sing around the campfire, it has always been a big part of my life,” Ms Chambers tells My Weekly Preview. “I feel like it’s the easiest album I’ve ever written because the songs just fell out. It really felt natural.” “Everybody feels like the campfire is a calming place to be. When everyone’s around it with you, you never wish you were anywhere else and people are happy to be there and to be present and live in that moment, which is why I find it so inspiring.” Ms Chambers is known for her hit singles Not Pretty Enough and True Colours, and her popularity skyrocketed with her seven-time platinum album Barricades & Brickwalls, released in 2001. Despite raking in accolades and working with industry superstars like Paul Kelly, Keith Urban and Ed Sheeran on her last album, Ms Chambers says she was “fangirling so hard” when she was able to work with US country music legend Emmylou Harris on Campfire. “It was like a dream come true for me and her name means more than every other name put together for me. She was one of the biggest influences of my whole life, one of the voices I’d heard more than any other voice in my life. To have her on this particular record, which is so much about my childhood, as such an integral part of my inspiration was just perfect for me,” she says. The mother-of-three’s connection to

family has sustained her through what has been at times an overwhelming career. Her brother Nash has produced most of her albums, while her father Bill has lent his musical talents and songwriting. He will join Ms Chambers on stage as a member of the Fireside Disciples for the duration of her 2018 tour and she says her “lack of filter” will mean a lot of intimate family stories will no doubt be shared while they are on the Sunshine Coast. In 2015, Ms Chambers went through surgery to remove nodules from her vocal cords, but says she has never felt better. “On one level it was kind of scary, having surgery on the thing that is your livelihood, but it had reached the point where I could barely sing one whole gig anymore. “Six weeks later I was on tour and I was ready to get back into it by then. Being on stage is still my favourite part of what I do. “I’ve grown up on stage and because I don’t have that on-stage and off-stage me, I kind of just go out there and sing the songs that mean a lot to me and often get very personal. But I am comfortable with that and even when I’m going through hard times or something in my life, or I’m just having a sh*t day for some reason, when I go out on stage I feel a lot more like myself.” Kasey Chambers and the Fireside Disciples will be at The Events Centre, Caloundra on June 28 at 7.30pm.

MY OPINION

WINTER IS FOR INDULGING

BATH TIME FUN

Sami Muirhead loves eating comfort food when it’s cold and anyone who suggests a bowless salad will be unfriended on social media.

Richard O’Leary’s dreams of having a bath and reading a book in peace pale in comparison to his son’s dreams of breaking a world record.

S

o it is winter and let’s face it, the best sporting activities in the cold are eating and lying on a couch. If you can combine these two, then you are in fact winning at the race of life. If you can add bonus elements such as a dog at your feet and a glass of shiraz at your lips, even better. There is nothing more delicious on these frosty nights than soul food such as beef stroganoff and homemade stews and thick wholesome soups. There was a bit of a commotion on my social media feed this week about a new bowless salad that will ‘change your life’. It involves using a capsicum instead of a bowl and stuffing it full of things such as cold beans and kale. I stopped following these social media influencers immediately. Bring me salad recipes in summer. For winter, I am embracing apple pies complete with custard and vanilla ice-cream. Here is a very good bit of life advice I was handed during the week: when in life you are faced with two choices (such as custard or ice-cream) always pick both. You are welcome. It is genius isn’t it? Let’s practise together. If faced with choosing between salami and Camembert cheese on a nibblies platter, the correct move is to take both.

The other winter food that keeps popping up in my thoughts is chocolate. My chocolate of choice is a Turkish delight or a Cherry Ripe. Kit Kat runs a tidy third place. I met a complete whacko this week who eats his Kit Kat by unwrapping it and then biting into all four fingers at the same time. No, no, no! This breaks every rule and code of civilised and sane conduct ever written. I’m still frazzled by his confession and I unfriended him on Instagram and Facebook. But let us move on swiftly to good food choices. Aldi has released a new Smiths potato chip range that includes ‘prawn cocktail’ as a flavour. They actually taste okay and sort of like licking a bowl of seafood sauce. I mean that sounds a good life choice when in doubt. And for the last word on good food choices, you can eat gelato for charity for the entire month of June. Gelatissimo at Kawana Shoppingworld has invented a gelato flavour called ‘Give Me 5 For Kids’ that is purple with blue star sprinkles and has the taste of a cupcake. Proceeds go to the awesome charity to help sick kids locally. All this talk of food has no doubt made you hangry, but please remember summer bodies are made in winter.

“Pray tell.” “Well, I considered lots of different things, but if I was going to do another one it would probably be the furthest you can pull the skin out from your chest.” He promptly demonstrates what he means on his own body. “The record is 15 centimetres, and I’m not even close, so I’ll stick with the skyscrapers.” Having given up on my bath, I divert the

“I try to sink lower into the water in the hope it will make this issue go away” conversation away from his new life goal, but after 10 minutes, and having thought I’d successfully changed the subject, he turns and looks at me with the determination of an Olympic swimmer on the blocks. “I’m really serious about climbing those skyscrapers Dad.” He leaves the bathroom and I contemplate a record of my own. To be honest, I don’t have to beat the world, I’d be more than happy with recording a personal best. How about the longest soak in the tub in our home without an interruption? Surely I can beat five minutes.

“I

know which Guinness World Record I want to break,” my nine-year-old says, confirming my theory that a moment alone, even in the bath, is beyond what a parent can expect. This should be interesting, I think. “Scaling the most skyscrapers.” “What’s the record?” I ask. “One-hundred-and-thirty-one. And the guy – they call him the real-life Spiderman – who is the current record holder was injured in his last climb, so he gets dizzy at heights now, and that means his record can’t get any better.” “Hmm, okay, do you think you may want to wait until you are a little older?” I ask, as I put down my book, resigned to the fact that I am going to be talking about the Guinness Book of Records rather than reading my own book, which is now balanced precariously on the edge of the bath. “Yep. He was 10 when he started, so I’m willing to wait that long.” I smile. “So I have six months until you begin?” “Pretty much.” I try to sink lower into the water in the hope it will make this issue go away. I drift off to the memories of emails I received after writing about my encouragement of my son’s daring-do on local mountains, and what an irresponsible parent I was to let him do such things. “I did look at other records,” he says.

HALCYON LAKESIDE SAVES THE BEST FOR LAST

A

ward-winning over 50s developer Halcyon has reached new heights with the final release of homes at Halcyon Lakeside, located amid the lush surrounds of Bli Bli. The final offering at Halcyon Lakeside, aptly named Elevation, is set on a flat elevated site and includes 43 homes. Many of the homes will boast stunning hillside vistas from the highest vantage point within the thriving community. The final stage is being delivered ahead of schedule, just two years since the first release at Halcyon Lakeside which has proved popular with local buyers from the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane retirees. “We’ve saved the best for last, offering a small exclusive precinct that’s within walking distance to the tapas bar and neighbourhood park,” project director Chris Carley says. “There is a strong focus on outdoor living, where we have introduced our

largest covered alfresco areas designed for those who love to entertain friends, or who just like a bit of extra space. “And the elevated position is ideal for capturing sea breezes in the fully landscaped backyard. “While there’s a lot of space around these homes, we’ve ensured that they also

“…the homes will boast stunning hillside vistas from the highest vantage point…” have the privacy homeowners need as there are only two homes in this release with neighbours backing onto them.” The high-end inclusions start in the kitchen with an induction cooktop and

quality AEG appliances, while solar panels and ducted air-conditioning are standard. “As always, Halcyon’s tried and tested formula of wide streets, lush gardens and green verges bring harmony to the streetscape at Elevation,” Mr Carley says. Homes in Halcyon Lakeside’s final stage are priced from $569,000 and range in size from 174 metres squared to 302 metres squared. The luxury homes at Elevation are close to all amenities within the Halcyon Lakeside community, and within easy walking distance to cafe, The Local. Halcyon Lakeside’s enviable lifestyle is enhanced by the state-of-the-art Rec Club, which offers the Sunshine Coast’s most extensive lifestyle and recreational precinct in an over 50s lifestyle community.

LIVE EVERYDAY LIKE YOU’RE ON HOLIDAY

With a connected community and sports, entertainment and social activities at your fingertips, you will live everyday like you’re on holiday at Living Gems Pacific Paradise. Living Gems sales manager Victoria Dent says residents at the Pacific Paradise resort certainly make the most of every day. “It is wonderful to see everyone enjoying all the resort has to offer; be that lawn bowls competitions, tennis matches, aqua aerobics, leisurely strolls around the resort or happy hour drinks with friends,” she says. Living Gems residents David and Beth Nielsen moved into Pacific Paradise to downsize from their former canal-front property on the Sunshine Coast and says it has freed them up to do more travelling. “We felt that it was time to downsize, and by living here, at a turnkey resort, we knew we could go off travelling even more than we had in the past,” Mr Nielsen says. “We have been on 70 cruises spanning every continent apart from Antarctica. We travel to see this fascinating world in which we live and we are somewhat addicted to it.” Ms Dent says residents all agree they have found their place in the sun. “As well as enjoying meals in the country club and barbecues by the pool on a Sunday afternoon, residents enjoy getting out and exploring the local area for the perfect place to eat,” she says. “The North Shore Tavern is only a 10-minute walk from the resort if you’re after pub food.” For more information call 1800 785 694, visit livinggems.com.au or send an email to info@livinggems.com.au.

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

Are you impatient for adventure and success? Awesome opportunities are circling around you, but they’re not immediately obvious. Spontaneous Sagittarians love to spring into fiery action, but some of your best work will be done quietly, behind the scenes.

Are you experiencing problems with a partner (of the romantic, business or platonic variety)? Drop the “I’m right” attitude and strive to communicate in more consultative ways as you inspire others with your inclusive ideas, networking skills and community spirit.

On Tuesday, do your best to turn up the charm and smooth over problems with a frustrated friend or cranky colleague. Expect some drama on Thursday or Friday, when a close relationship could take a decidedly unexpected detour.

Do you underestimate and your kind heart and creative talents? This week, Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune encourage you to express your compassion and creativity for all the world to see. It’s also a wonderful week to enjoy a romantic interlude.

NEW TOWNHOMES PROVE POPULAR WITH NEW BUYERS First homebuyers are snapping up these convenient and affordable townhomes, located within walking distance of the new Maroochydore CBD.

W

hen My Property Preview spoke with renowned real estate analyst Michael Matusik earlier this year, he predicted it would be a shortfall in the creation of new townhouses that would have an impact on people entering the property market on the Sunshine Coast into the future. RPG Developments and RCQ Construction also have their fingers on the pulse, allowing them to predict this same shortfall and plan accordingly. The companies have teamed up to create contemporary and vibrant Maroochydore townhomes at the development Locale, which are being snapped up, with more than 85 per cent of the development already sold. Of these, 20 per cent have been sold to first homebuyers wanting to take advantage of the government’s grant before it expires. Construction is due to be completed in the last quarter of this year, after Mayor Mark Jamieson joined builder RCQ Construction and developer RPG Developments to officially turn the sod at the Locale site in January. RPG Developments executive director Ric Peterson says he is thrilled to see the development coming to life after months of

Townhomes are an ideal option for first homeowners careful planning and a strong sales response from the market, particularly those looking to enter the property market for the first time. “The Locale complex consists of 40 two and three-bedroom townhomes some of which are priced under $400,000 which, particularly in the heart of Maroochydore, represents exceptional value for money and provides first homeowners with a great entry point into a strong market,” Mr Peterson says. “The challenge for those looking to enter

the market at the moment is finding quality stock without compromising on location. Our buyers to date including first homeowners, downsizers and investors are relishing the opportunity to purchase a new home so close to the new CBD, Sunshine Plaza, the Ocean Street dining precinct, Maroochy River and Maroochydore’s pristine, patrolled beaches.” RCQ Construction general manager Gavin Wuiske says construction is progressing to schedule, with seven buildings across the

site now under construction and scaffolding removed from three buildings. “Two buildings are in the process of being painted and tiled, while installation of kitchen cabinetry has already commenced in the first building,” Mr Wuiske says. “An exciting construction milestone was reached this week, with the mains electricity for the site being installed ahead of time, so we are delighted with the progress.” RPG Developments sales executive Cathie Price says Locale buyers are all drawn to the intuitive and functional design of the development, as well as the low maintenance lifestyle townhome living offers. “These homes are spacious, offering a second living area and separate study, downstairs powder room, pet-friendly courtyards and covered outdoor entertainment areas,” Ms Price says. “This, as well as the appeal of a brandnew home and low body corporate fees of approximately $2500 per annum, has been appealing for first homeowners.”

with MWP’s man in the water

So, I have returned from my stint in northern New South Wales. Scored fun waves with quite a few dolphins and a hungry shark named Bob! But, I can tell you, it is the land of bald surfers – or semi-retired ones. I watched the State of Origin and that ref… what a good ad for “should have gone to Specsavers”. He’s as blind as a bat, or is he? Now, this weekend looks set to deliver good conditions so get amongst it. It was good to see Julian score some solid points in Bali, heading to J-Bay. He certainly has the Brazilians breathing down his neck. Hopefully he can deliver there too. Have a great weekend!

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 itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.
