THE FIRST WORD
ISSUE 508 July 13, 2018
In the shadow of a mountain in small-town Tasmania, a woman named Ana is watching the clock, marking the days until the end of her life. The strange, reclusive daughter of the local pariah, that’s how the people will remember her, when they remember her at all. But then, the police find the body of local woman Rebecca Marsden. And for Ana, that changes everything. We have three copies of Loney Girl by Lynne Vincent McCarthy to give away.
FROM THE EDITOR
he Sunshine Coast is rich with artistic talent. And, it’s no secret that we have one of the most beautiful environments in the world. Bring these things together and it makes perfect sense as to why the Horizon Festival has been such a success since its inception in 2016. The Sunshine Coast Council-supported event has gone from strength to strength in this relatively short time. In its first year, 35,000 people engaged with the event and last year this grew to almost 60,000, with more than 200 events coming to life across the region. It has been embraced by locals and visitors alike, and as importantly, it provides a vital platform for our artists to show their talents, wares and passion to the greater community. The 10-day festival includes something for everybody – awe-inspiring art installations, films, music, literature talks and top comedians such as global sensation, Arj Barker. Journalist Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane took the time this week to speak with the people behind the festival to paint a snapshot of the event to come. You can read the story on page 10. From Horizon Festival to our monthly home styling feature, this week’s edition of My Weekly Preview is jam-packed with interesting people and ideas. We have all your favourites including fashion, entertainment, food and property. Happy reading!

RISING VOICE Where do you live? I’ve just recently moved to Sydney but I grew up on the Sunshine Coast. First job? Helping out at my dad’s old restaurant, Thai Seaons in Mooloolaba. What are you currently working on? A feature film adaptation of the young adult novel Laurinda, which was written by my friend Alice Pung. Your family includes? My parents and four older siblings, and my partner and our cat. First car? I only got my licence two years ago. I’d saved up enough money to buy a Hyundai i30 in red, because it goes faster. Favourite book? The His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman. That series so deeply informed my values as a person, and each time I reread it, it offers a new perspective on life, relationships and self-worth. It’s the only book I’ve sobbed over. If your life was a book, what would be the title? Oh god, I’ve never thought about this! Maybe something like, I Don’t Know What I’m Doing and Nobody Does.
Michelle Law is a writer working across film, theatre and print. Her debut play Single Asian Female attracted sold-out audiences. She has been a recipient of the Queensland Premier’s Young Publishers and Writers Award. Her web series Homecoming Queens premiered on SBS On Demand this year. She is speaking at Voices on the Coast, presented by Immanuel Lutheran College, July 18 to 21. Proudly supported by My Weekly Preview.
What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? Kawana Shoppingworld – it was right across my house growing up and holds a lot of memories. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? That it’s still quite a monoculture and people from diverse backgrounds can feel very isolated there. My family and I faced a fair amount of racism when we lived on the Coast, even though all of my siblings and I were born and grew up there. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? The day I adopted my cat. I knew nothing about cats and had always been a dog person, but the RSPCA was having an adult cat sale and 1) I can’t resist a bargain and 2) I’d always wanted an animal and adult animals can have a harder time being adopted. I’ve learnt a lot about caring for another creature.
“My family and I faced a fair amount of racism when we lived on the Coast”
What are you reading now? A short story collection by Asian American writer Jenny Zhang called Sour Heart, which has been on my bedside table for some time, and Crazy Rich Asians.
Best advice you’ve been given? Trust your gut.
Favourite song and why? I love golden oldies and Smooth FM, because that’s what I grew up listening to. What are you watching right now and would you recommend it? I’ve just started watching Killing Eve starring Sandra Oh, which is available on ABC iView. I’m hooked! It’s truly unlike any television I’ve seen before, stylistically speaking. And the dialogue and characters are so compelling. When was the last time you played sport and what was it? I went bouldering with my sister and I loved it.
Your greatest regret? Probably being a silly high schooler and not being mature enough to know how to end toxic friendships in a healthy way.
Advice to your 18-year-old self? Everything passes – failures and successes – so at the end of the day relationships are most important. If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? Ali Wong, Sandra Oh and Constance Wu. If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? Buy presents for my family and close friends, donate some to charity, buy a horse and stable, and save the rest in a high interest account. Tea or coffee? Herbal tea without milk or sugar. NRL or AFL? Neither. Both are fine, but we place way too much importance on sports in this country.

BROADEN YOUR HORIZONS
From August 24 to September 2, the Sunshine Coast will be treated to more than 150 beautiful, magical, entertaining and thought-provoking events and exhibitions as the third annual Horizon Festival gets underway. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
Award-winning milliner Melanie Jeffers will host flower crown and headpiece workshops

he courtyard at Pam Walpole’s home is filled with thousands of plastic milk containers – a complete contradiction to the ethos and lifestyle of the artist and self-confessed environmentalist. But you may start to see more anomalies like this around the region as creatives prepare for the upcoming Horizon Festival. The Sunshine Beach resident is teaming up with her neighbour and fellow artist Yanni Van Zejl to create an awe-inspiring and educational art installation – the Green House. The pair will construct a three-by-sixmetre Monopoly-style house clad in singleuse plastic bottles, which they have had to collect, wash and cut by hand. The Green House will also feature ocean-inspired images and bushland shapes made from translucent recycled plastic. In the evening, the piece will be transformed with colour and immersive light from a projection display created by Mic Black and Brian Keayes. Ms Van Zejl says the piece is a commentary on plastic pollution and greenhouse gas emissions and creates a role reversal for visitors as they transform from being plastic consumers while standing outside the art piece, to becoming consumed by plastic as they enter the structure. “It is another way to demonstrate the impact plastic is having on both the land and the ocean,” she says. The duo is responsible for several large-scale guerrilla artworks that have popped up around the Noosa Shire in the last couple of years. While these works have had a limited lifespan, usually being photographed and immediately disassembled, the commissioned Green House will remain at the University of the Sunshine Coast for the entire 10-day festival from August 24 to September 2. The full program for the festival will be released on July 13 and promises to build on the success of the previous two years, which has seen the festival quickly establish itself as a premiere platform for creatives to showcase their art to audiences who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience their work. In its inaugural year, the festival engaged 35,000 people over the 10 days and last year this swelled to just under 60,000 as more than 200 events came to life. This year is gearing up to be just as popular. Festival organisers released sneak peeks into the extensive 2018 program last
month and some of the previewed workshops have already come close to selling out, prompting extra positions to be added. Arts Portfolio councillor Rick Baberowski says this year’s program includes an increased range of artistic and unique events, with more than 150 performances, exhibitions, workshops and events covering visual art, music, film, dance, comedy, immersive technologies, events for families, hands-on workshops, art on the beach and more. “Now in its third year, Horizon Festival has quickly grown to become the signature multi-arts festival for our region,” Cr Baberowski says. “This year we have taken a more curatorial approach to the festival programming, collaborating with the local arts community to present an array of events inspired by art, technology, our natural environment, Indigenous arts, spoken word, pop culture and more. “It’s going to be another impressive celebration of arts and culture right across the region.” Horizon director Zohar Spatz, who took

over the reigns last month, says the festival is “as diverse as the community” and there will be something for everyone to enjoy. Ms Spatz has a distinguished career as a multi-disciplinary arts producer and has been based in Brisbane for the past seven years, most recently as the executive producer of the Australian Performing Arts Market, which is the country’s leading internationally focused industry event for contemporary performing arts. She says the Sunshine Coast has steadily myweeklypreview.com.au

COVER STORY built a reputation for delivering “some of the most remarkable arts and cultural events for many years”. “I started off in Woodford at The Dreaming 15 years ago and when you think about the enormous community of makers and talent here on the Coast, it’s no wonder the industry thrives here,” she says. “I think what’s super special about the Sunny Coast is it does arts its own way, by celebrating the natural environment and landscape. There are going to be some really unique experiences on offer for the local community during Horizon in both ticketed and free events.” Ms Spatz says the cinema program, held at the Majestic Theatre in Nambour and the Big Screen Cinemas in Caloundra, will see several films screened across the 10 days, including the controversial new film Terror Nullius, which recently debuted in Sydney. “We also have an incredible contemporary music program featuring Thelma Plumb and Regurgitator and ex-hockey Olympian Nova Peris will present her new book at a library talk and share her incredible Australian story,” she says. Cosplay will feature in the festival for the first time, with the Manafest pop culture event taking over Nambour’s C-Square on August 25 from 1pm to 5pm with live performances, walk-through exhibitions and Japanese anime screenings as well as the opportunity to enter a Cosplay competition. “One of the things I love about this festival, and what I am starting to truly appreciate, is the sheer volume of workshops,” Ms Spatz says. Renowned milliner and talented costume designer Melanie Jeffers will be hosting two workshops during the festival, giving people the chance to learn how to create flower crowns and headpieces. Ms Jeffers will also team up with her choreographer sister Melissa Lanham to present Femininus, a visually stunning interpretation of Jungian psychology’s seven feminine archetypes that prevail in contemporary society today – the mother, the maiden, the queen, the huntress, the wise woman, sage and the lover.
Explore the world of cosplay and anime at Manafest
• The festival runs for 10 days • More than 150 events • Events will be held in 22 locations across the Coast • More than 55,000 people are expected to see one or more events The archetypes will come to life through dance in an interactive performance at the Arts and Ecology Centre in Tanawha, with the fashion-forward costumes exhibited at the centre from August 25 to 27. The wearable art is the culmination of many hours of intensive work, with the bustle and breathtaking wings for the queen archetype taking three weeks to create and a further 40 hours of work on the headpiece. Despite the amount of time already invested in the show and exhibition, Ms Jeffers says she did not hesitate to add workshops to the schedule. “I think it’s important to impart some sort of knowledge and I love millinery. I started learning from my Nanna at a young age, so if I can use my skills to bring people together and to create something special, they can walk away with something that they have created themselves and some new skills,” she says. Ms Lanham, who showcased her production Vincent during Horizon last year, says the festival has become a cornerstone for the creative industries on the Sunshine Coast.

“It is extremely important because the festival opens up a plethora of different art forms to the community that they would never have otherwise seen,” she says. “It is a great advocate for the arts and how important arts is within the community as well as giving us exposure to art enthusiasts from other regions around the country.” Ms Spatz says the festival will be one of the many events that will benefit from the council’s first Arts Plan. “What I’m really excited about is the visionary opportunity that the Sunshine Coast Council and all of their allies are pulling together in the form of an incredible 20-year strategy,” she says. “It feels like the festival, and the wider industry, is on the precipice of doing something really extraordinary.” The Sunshine Coast Arts Plan 2018–2038 articulates four goals and supporting strategies that over the next 20 years, will stimulate the Coast arts sector, create opportunities to build a strong creative community, communicate and showcase the value of the arts, actively explore partnerships and collaborations, grow participation in the arts, and identify opportunities to invest in the arts including places where the arts are made and showcased. The community consultation phase for the plan closed on July 13 and a council spokesperson says it is planned to go before the councillors for endorsement at the August 16 Ordinary Meeting. Ms Van Zejl says she is pleased the council is taking the arts seriously. “Australia is such a sporting nation and we are lacking a little bit in the arts, but here we have a council talking about and engaging people to create more focus on the industry and it’s fantastic to see,” she says. “Art really does add to your life. Murals, sculptures and other public artworks are joyous things and it will only enhance the community for more of them to be around.”
Arj Barker (pictured) has a few things he needs to get off his chest. (Don’t worry, it isn’t quite as serious as it sounds). “Hey, you got an hour? Look, I’ve been doing a shi*t-tonne of thinking about us and where we’re headed. This isn’t easy but I need to be 100 per cent honest with you, even if what I say makes you laugh, very, very hard.” The American stand-up comedian is tired with living in a modern world and he isn’t holding back in his latest stage show, We Need To Talk. Hailed as a must-see for anyone who loves a laugh, his extensive tour is bringing him to the Sunshine Coast as part of the Horizon Festival’s comedy line-up, proving the region’s premiere arts and culture festival really does have something for everyone. Arj Barker will perform at The Shed on September 1.
THREE THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ARJ BARKER 1. He began his career in a small American coffee shop in the 1990s. 2. His real name is Arjan Singh.

GIVE ME 5 TARGET SMASHED Mix FM breakfast presenters Caroline Hutchinson and Mark Darin have announced the tally for this year’s Give Me 5 for Kids fundraising drive. Setting a goal of $600,000 in order to take the total amount raised over almost 20 years over the $5 million mark, the duo revealed the community had raised $606,096. The money will go towards accommodation close to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital to keep patients and their families close during treatment, plus medical equipment including a video laryngoscopes, a potentially lifesaving tool for newborns with respiratory failure.
WOMEN ON THEIR WAY UP Three university students were given recognition and a little help from the Graduate Women Association Queensland as the Sunshine Coast chapter announced the winners of the 2018 Undergraduate Bursaries at the Innovation Centre on the weekend. Asha Sara, Nicole Lambert and Melissa Bartels were named the winners as they were found to demonstrate commitment, diligence, academic pursuit and need. Ms Sara is studying a bachelor of nursing, Ms Lambert is studying honours in a bachelor of psychology and Ms Bartels is undertaking a double degree in social science and criminal justice.

COAST SHEDS LIGHT ON LIFI TECHNOLOGY The Sunshine Coast became the first Asia-Pacific region to put the next phase of wireless internet technology on public display. Schell LiFi, which uses light to transmit data at higher speeds than WiFi, was officially roadtested at the Smart Centre in Bulcock Street, Caloundra. Mayor Mark Jamieson says the chance to showcase LiFi technology shows the Coast is a leading region in the use of smart city technology. AIPC Group’s Sudhir Sreedharan (pictured with Mark Jamieson) says the Coast is “a hot bed for Australian start-ups and investors, making the region an attractive destination for technology infrastructure companies.”
The Brisbane Road car park redevelopment tender process has concluded, with the withdrawal of Abacus Investments. Mayor Mark Jamieson says, “This project has always been about increasing the total number of public car parks delivered, limiting council’s financial contribution to the project, retaining ownership of the public car parks, and managing the timing around the project delivery to minimise disruption to Mooloolaba traders and visitors during peak periods. Council was not prepared to give way on any of these conditions… Ultimately, Abacus reached a commercial decision not to proceed further.” Cr Jamieson says the council has delivered a further 257 publicly accessible car parks in Mooloolaba in the last year.
MIXED NETBALL TEAM BRINGS HOME BRONZE The University of the Sunshine Coast’s mixed netball team won bronze at a national university games tournament on the Gold Coast. The team had a solid 44-34 win over the Australian Catholic University team in the bronze medal playoff at the Nationals Division 2 tournament. Captain Kristi Podlich says despite narrowly missing out on the chance to play for gold, her teammates were proud to bring home bronze. “We’re absolutely stoked considering some members of the team we were up against play for Australian Netball League team Queensland Fusion,” she says.

EMMA ISAACS: “I KNOW I HAVE NO BALANCE” Emma Isaacs runs a successful global business, has five children and looks like a million bucks. Is there anything she can’t do? Find out when she comes to the Sunshine Coast for a business breakfast on July 17. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
IMAGE: JADE WARNE
inging it’ is not usually a phrase you see bandied about by successful global businesspeople, but it is something global CEO of Business Chicks Emma Isaacs has learned to embrace. It is a mantra that has served her well and the former Sydneysider will be sharing insights into what it takes to build a brand, how to take your business global, how to cultivate amazing relationships, build a culture and get your mindset right for success as a guest speaker at the next Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network (SCBWN) monthly breakfast on July 17. Ms Isaacs has truly walked the walk, becoming the co-owner of a small recruitment company where she had just started working at 18 years of age. When she sold the business eight years later, it had grown exponentially and been named as Australia’s Favourite Recruiter in the SEEK Awards for three consecutive years. When she was 26, Ms Isaacs came across a group called Business Chicks, which she learned was up for sale and she took a leap of faith and bought it. Over the past 13 years, Ms Isaacs has transformed Business Chicks from a group of 250 members to a global enterprise that operates in two continents, 11 cities and produces more than 100 events annually, with past speakers including Sir Richard Branson, Seth Godin, Dr Brené Brown, Arianna Huffington, Diane von Furstenberg, Sir Bob Geldof and Jamie Oliver. Her latest book, aptly titled Winging It, is testament to the need to keep up in a fast-paced business environment.
“Winging it doesn’t mean removing planning altogether – it means having the flexibility to pivot when needed and the courage to act in the face of not always having all of the information,” she says. “Business moves at such a pace these days that I’m always sceptical when people tell me they have three or five-year plans. With technology and concepts moving so quickly, it’s not always possible to predict where the market will be so far in advance. “A lot of high-growth companies I know do agility planning, where they break down their strategic and tactical goals into 12-month plans or sometimes even sixmonth plans.” While her business achievements are
“I try and be kind to myself and don’t necessarily strive for the elusive ‘balance’…” astounding, Ms Isaacs is also a mother of five and admits there is “no balance” in her life. “It’s funny, but every time I have a baby (and I’ve had a few), I get this surge of ambition and this fundamental desire to get back to work and be able to create a life for them – to show them what’s possible and to
be a role model for them,” she says. “I know that for many women, motherhood doesn’t produce this same level of ambition, and that’s okay, but for me, I get this surge of wanting to protect them and give them everything, kind of like a lioness with her cubs. “Of course, the reality of having five young children and a growing global business means that there’s precious little down time and I have to execute most tasks with military-like precision. “In terms of the ‘juggle’, I try and be as easygoing as possible and I try and be kind to myself and don’t necessarily strive for the elusive ‘balance’. I know I have no balance and that’s the way life just is for now. I just try to understand my values and what’s important to me and focus on those things. For now, it’s about growing the business and it’s about spending time with my family. Everything else pales in comparison, but it won’t always be this way. “My advice would be to learn to say no lots, and above all, be gentle and kind to yourself.” Ms Isaacs is a firm believer that you can never learn too much and should take every opportunity to educate yourself and surround yourself with other likeminded people who are also curious and committed to their development.
To glean more pearls of wisdom from this business icon, head to the SCBWN Breakfast on July 17 at 6.45am at The Sebel Pelican Waters. Tickets are available at scbwn.org.au.

PINK LADIES PADDLE THEIR WAY TO HEALTH The Pink Sea Serpents say paddling dragon boats is wonderful therapy for breast cancer survivors. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
umping into a friend she hadn’t seen for years was the catalyst for a positive change in the life of breast cancer survivor Audra Kearney that has seen her travel to Italy to compete in the International Breast Cancer Paddlers’ Commission (IBCPC) Dragon Boat Festival with her Dragons Abreast family. Mrs Kearney was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 and two years later, she bumped into a friend in Medicare, who had also undergone her own cancer battle. It was then that she learnt about Dragons Abreast, an organisation of breast cancer survivors who paddle in dragon boats as part of their post-operative rehabilitation. “She couldn’t have come at a better moment,” Mrs Kearney says. “I was a bit down and I said, ‘If you look that good, I want to be looking like that, take me on board’. “Dragon boating was something totally new for me. Since I started a family, I was too busy running my kids around, so when the opportunity came up, I grabbed it with both hands.” The Pacific Paradise resident says she immediately felt she had found her place with the women in the Sunshine Coast team, The
Pink Sea Serpents, who range in age from 46 to 82. “You have camaraderie within any sporting team, but the pink ladies have something else – we are there for each other and we have travelled the same path, so there is a strong connection,” she says. “We don’t get together to talk about our illness, but you know that there are people here that can listen and understand if you do need to talk.” The Pink Sea Serpents, formerly known as Titty Titty Bang Bang, were formed in 2005
and Mrs Kearney took on the role of president in 2015. She competed as a member of a Redcliffe club in the IBCPC Dragon Boat Festival when it was held in Florida in 2014. Last week, Mrs Kearney was excited to be paddling alongside her Coast teammates in a partial team of 13 in Florence, Italy. The IBCPC has 166 breast cancer survivor dragon boat teams on five continents. Mrs Kearney says the atmosphere is “electric” at these events and members from other clubs would help complete the full team
of 22 to allow them to compete, which is not uncommon at these events. Despite only having a partial team, the Pink Sea Serpents secured silver at the state competition on Lake Kawana in the 200-metre and 500-metre events in February and bronze in the same events at national level in March. Mrs Kearney says she hopes more members will come on board so they can reach their full potential and “give Brisbane a run for their money”. The team is part of the Maroochy Sea Serpents Dragon Boat and Outrigging Club based at the Maroochy River Resort near the Waterfront Hotel and training sessions are held on the lagoon, the Maroochy River and Eudlo Creek. Mrs Kearney says pink ladies get the best of everything, with the ability to be a competitive sports paddler, a social paddler and a breast cancer paddler.

TITANIC EFFORT PAYS OFF FOR BUDERIM WRITER We all know the story of the Titanic, but few of us know the story of the Carpathia, the ship that rescued hundreds of survivors. Buderim writer Dr Jay Ludowyke has captured this intriguing tale of heroism in her new book. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
r Jay Ludowyke was watching an episode of Antiques Roadshow when she chanced upon the tale of the transatlantic steamship, the Carpathia. She’d been weighing up ideas for her doctoral thesis and this little-known story caught her attention immediately. “Someone on the show brought along a medal that had been awarded to a crew member that served aboard the Carpathia, and I’d never heard of this ship,” she says. “The story was that when the captain received the panic distress call from the Titanic, he didn’t hesitate to change course; he set sail at full speed in the night. The captain and his crew were risking the same fate as Titanic, weaving through icebergs to reach the sinking ship.” The Carpathia arrived after the Titanic had gone down, but was able to rescue an estimated 712 passengers from the freezing water. It met its own fate during WWI when it was torpedoed by a German submarine. “With the Titanic there’s an element of tragedy, but with this there’s a sense of heroism that appealed to me,” she says. Born in Tasmania, Dr Ludowyke moved to the Coast at the age of 12. She began studying an undergraduate degree in archaeology in Brisbane, but switched to writing at the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC), where she completed her Honours degree. With a view to pursuing an academic career, she enrolled in a Doctor of Creative Arts program, with a specialisation in written communication, and embarked on researching the extraordinary story of the ship that was overshadowed by the most famous shipwreck in history. “I came to this with no maritime experience,” she says. “I just found a story that I wanted to write and it made for a steep learning curve. I had a research book in one hand and a dictionary in the other, looking up nautical terminology. It was like trying to learn a new language,” she says.
Over four years she researched the story of the Carpathia extensively and took a six-week trip to visit archives, museums and libraries in London, Newcastle and Liverpool. She was thrilled when USC agreed to fund the trip. “I felt incredibly fortunate and also incredibly nervous,” she says of the trip. “I went to the UK quite early into the research period and I was nervous because I didn’t know what I was going to find. I had so many hopes.” The result of her efforts is a narrative non-fiction paperback that covers the Carpathia’s beginnings as a passenger ship operating between New York and the Mediterranean, its involvement in the rescue of Titanic survivors, its use in World War I
when it was sunk by a torpedo, and the modern expeditions to find and dive the sunken wreck. She was able to discover more to the story than had previously been written about in any detail, making the trip an important factor in the book’s success. With much enthusiasm, she tells of the discovery of part of Hadrian’s Wall in the shipyard where the Carpathia was built, with rocks from the ancient wall having been displayed in a glass case on board the ship. “Hadrian’s Wall is 2000 years old and the end of the wall was found in the shipyard in Newcastle where the Carpathia was built,” she says. “There were beautiful connections between past and present, old and new.
“The story of the stones is the prologue to the book,” she says. “The stones are set up as this idea of treasure. The Carpathia didn’t go down with any gold bullion, or gems, but it did go down with these stones from Wallsend.” Having graduated in April, Dr Ludowyke says attracting the interest of publisher Hachette was the “best possible outcome” for her project. After sending her manuscript to publishers around the country to no avail, she booked herself a ticket to the Emerging Writers Festival in Sydney and pitched her book directly to Hachette’s non-fiction editor, who was equally captivated by the story. Within weeks, she had a book deal. “I got a phone call and saw it was a Sydney number,” she says. “It was Hachette calling to offer me a contract for the book. The rest of that day I kept looking at my phone to make sure I hadn’t imagined it.” Dr Ludowyke is now writing her second book and teaching creative writing at USC, while she fields calls from media around the country. She’ll appear on the popular ABC podcast Conversations on July 13, followed by an appearance on Studio 10 and a speaking engagement at the Australian Maritime Museum in Sydney on July 19. The book will be launched at the University of the Sunshine Coast art gallery on July 17, timed to coincide with the 100-year anniversary of the sinking of the Carpathia. The launch will feature live music, wine and canapes, with an introduction by Bruce Atkinson from ABC Sunshine Coast. Carpathia: The extraordinary story of the ship that rescued the survivors of the Titanic is now in bookstores.
Attendance at the book launch is free. Places are limited and RSVP is essential. Visit carpathia.eventbrite.com.au.

STYLE TRENDS OF THE 90s ARE BACK
SICK OF SEEING SO MUCH SPORT?
Sami Muirhead is shocked to realise navel rings are not in fashion anymore, but is happy other relics of the ’90s have returned.
Richard O’Leary says saturated sports coverage has had the effect of causing him to lose interest in something he once loved.
headline stopped me in my tracks this week and made me feel very old. It screamed: “Britney Spears is on a mission to brink back a nightmarish ’90s trend – the belly ring.” But wait, there’s more. The article went on to say, “The 36-year-old seems determined to single-handedly resurrect dangly, glittery, dysfunctional belly button rings. Remember that hideous accessory all the girls at your high school and work just had to have? Well, Britney STILL has it.” My mind was spinning for several reasons. The first was the fact that many of us embraced the belly ring and even thought it was fun and a bit sexy. I do not think it was a “nightmarish” or “hideous” trend of the ’90s. Surely that honour goes to the bum bag? And the second thought I had was the realisation while I was raising kids and getting on with life, somewhere in the last 20 years the trend of belly button rings has gone away. A silent movement has swept Australia, as one by one we have all slipped out our belly rings and grown up. And out. I had a belly ring and I am now glad I did it in my 20s, with flat abs. Drawing attention to my white bits now after birthing three children would be really stupid. Let me tell you the story of my belly ring. I had my naval pierced while backpacking around Canada and thought I
was the coolest kid on the block. The bloke who pushed that needle through my belly was a lot older than me and super sleazy. He put down his beer to pierce my skin and his parting words to me were to use my own urine to ensure infections stayed away. I got out of that dive as fast as I could. The ring stayed with me until eight years ago, when I fell pregnant and decided I was all grown up and it was time to literally cut out my little mark of ’90s rebellion. That was that. I had officially grown up and was suitably ready to be a parent. While the belly ring is seemingly in a fashion coma, many of the ’90s trends are back in fashion this year. Crop tops are leading the charge as the must-have item of the moment. And also back in favour are leather blazers, waistcoats and anything goth. You know you are getting older when you wore a trend the first time around. The ’90s were just so rich for ugly fashion. If you did not have a tie-dye T-shirt like the original Destiny’s Child band, then you were not really growing up in the ’90s. And what about overalls worn with one strap hanging down? Everyone from TLC to Joey Potter in Dawson’s Creek and Rachel in Friends had a pair of oversized denim dungarees. So I say, go for it Britney. Do not listen to the haters and go on showing your flashy belly ring. If you could just hook up with Justin Timberlake again I would be a really happy girl.

s we approach the final of the World Cup, it has dawned on me that I don’t really give a damn. And it’s not just because it is soccer, or football as the purists call it. I have found in recent years my interest in sport has started to wane. I didn’t watch a minute of the Commonwealth Games and I couldn’t tell you any athlete who won a medal. Even Origin has not been able to get me as excited this year, despite a rare win for my Blues (I was born in New South Wales). I only watched the second half of the second game. Now some cynics might suggest that the rough trot of my beloved Eels has turned me sour on sport in general, but I think there’s a better explanation which I will get to in a moment. But first you need to understand how marked this transformation has been. As a kid, I was obsessed with sport; playing it and watching it. I recall watching on the TV in our living room the final race of the America’s Cup before going to school. At the Dubbo dogs, I remember listening to that famous finish to the 1986 Cox Plate and can still recite the final stages of that great race call. “Bonecrusher, Our Waverly Star, stride for stride, nothing in it, Our Waverly Star the rails, Bonecrusher the outside, and BONECRUSHER races into equine immortality.”
I can still picture the look of despondency on Jeff Thomson’s face as he walked from the MCG after falling just short of leading Australia to victory in that famous test in the 82/83 Ashes series, when Chris Tavaré dropped the snick only for the ball to be caught by Geoff Miller. But you know what I can’t do? Conjure any moment from the last ten years. I don’t think it’s because the competition is less exciting or the skills have deteriorated – to the contrary I know there have been
“As a kid I was obsessed with sport; playing it and watching it”
some wonderful contests and the players are better than ever. But there’s so much sport today, all the highs and lows blend into one. Take rugby league. You can watch all eight games live every week of the competition, while back in the day you’d be lucky to get a Saturday and Sunday game. And what’s the result of the saturation coverage of all sports? A viewer that has seen it all before, which means the scandal off the field stands out more than the efforts on it. No wonder I’ve lost interest.

HERE’S CHEERS FOR LOCAL BREWER A popular Sunshine Coast brewery has taken out a string of accolades at The Independent Beer Awards. Moffat Beach Brewing Co, which is heading into its third year of business, has taken out the coveted award of Champion Independent Brewery (Small) along with a string of medals for its brews. With The Indies open to an international marketplace of independent brewers, the 2018 competition was the biggest of its kind to be staged in Australia. Hosted by the Independent Brewers Association and judged by a panel of national and international beer experts,
hundreds converged to the sold-out event in Sydney to celebrate the art and science of brewing. Celebrating the win, Moffat Beach Brewing Co owner Matt Wilson says with independent beer-making flourishing in Australia right now, it’s a great time to be in the industry. “At the moment the only place you can try our beers is in our brew pub,’’ he says. “Our brewery is in full public view and if you are lucky you can sit back, sip on one of our award-winning beers while catching the breeze off the Pacific Ocean, and watch the brewing take place.”
lmost every day we rely on infrastructure – communication towers, oil and gas pipelines, railroads, toll roads, airports and ports – to make our lives a little easier. In recent decades, the opportunity to own these infrastructure assets has expanded greatly. The attraction is that they typically generate reliable earnings by providing essential services to the community, yet with limited competition. Through time, these predictable cash flows are expected to deliver income and capital growth for investors. For long-term investors reliant on regular income, they are particularly attractive, given the long-dated nature of the concessions that infrastructure assets often incorporate. Infrastructure companies are generally less heavily regulated than utilities, which allows companies to benefit from a greater
number of people using their services. As economies develop, aviation, shipping and vehicle traffic increase, as does demand for communications and energy. Given the essential nature of these services, the fees charged to use them can be varied with limited impact on demand. As a consequence, earnings are more reliable than those for a typical industrial company and generally enjoy inherent protection against inflation. This dependability is also the reason that infrastructure companies can support higher levels of leverage. The Australian stock market has a well-developed infrastructure sector, thanks in no small part to the efforts of local investment banks such as Macquarie supporting its expansion. Within the sector we have several preferences: APA Group, Qube Holdings, Sydney Airport and Transurban. It is also possible to obtain broader exposure to the sector through a managed fund or listed investment company that focus on infrastructure. An example of an LIC in the space is the Magellan Infrastructure Fund (ASX code: MICH). Mark Davidson is an authorised representative (no 427049) of Ord Minnett Ltd, AFS licence 237121.

ooran singer Emma Tomlinson was four when she was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome. Speech therapy as a child evolved into singing lessons when she was seven and in that, Miss Tomlinson says she discovered the ability to express herself through lyrics. When she was 14 years old, she wrote Mental, which delved into bullying and feeling different to the pack. “It honestly felt amazing. Writing a song is a vessel for me to communicate emotional expressions that other people around the world of any ability or age could be experiencing or feeling. It’s a way of connecting people,” she says. The same year she wrote Mental, Miss Tomlinson tried out for X Factor, making it through to the televised auditions. “It was such a phenomenal experience,” she says.

LOVE THE SOUND OF SIMON & GARFUNKEL?
To say that Mark Shelley and John Robertson have talent is an understatement. The duo is offering audiences a glimpse into what a Simon and Garfunkel concert might look and sound like, entertaining with hits like Mrs Robinson, Bridge Over Troubled Water and Sound of Silence. They then transform into Willie Nelson and Roy Orbison to bring On
the Road Again, Always on my Mind, Pretty Woman and Crying to the stage. Their appearances, voices and ability to channel the energy and mannerisms of these musical icons is unrivalled. See them in action at The Events Centre, Caloundra on July 21 at 8pm. Tickets are available at theeventscentre.com.au.
THE DETECTIVE DOG Author: Julia Donaldson and Sara Ogilvie Publisher: Pan Macmillan RRP: $14.99 Reviewer: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane
When it comes to literary geniuses, you can’t go past Julia Donaldson in the world of children’s books. She is a staple in our household, so when I saw her latest book, The Detective Dog, was on its way to book stores, I had to get hold of a copy. The witty and creative prose that first captured my children and I in The Gruffalo has remained consistent in every work she creates, and the tale of Peter’s dog Nell and her amazing sense of smell will captivate children of all ages. My children were mesmerised as the tale unfolded and Nell quickly found her way into their hearts – and the regular book reading rotation.

ASPARAGUS PUFF PASTRY TART
INGREDIENTS • 2 sheets frozen butter puff pastry, just thawed • 1 egg, lightly whisked • 200 g fresh ricotta • 55 g (½ cup) coarsely grated gruyere • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard • sea salt and freshly ground • black pepper • 2 bunches asparagus, trimmed • 1 rindless bacon rasher, thinly sliced • balsamic glaze (see cooking tip, left) METHOD Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Stack the pastry sheets on top of each other on the tray and press lightly to seal. Use a knife to score a two-centimetre border around the edges, but don’t cut all the way through. Use a fork to prick the base of the inside square as you don’t want the pastry here to rise. However, don’t prick the border at all,
COOKING TIP You can buy balsamic glaze in most good supermarkets, but it’s as easy to make as combining 60 ml (¼ cup) balsamic vinegar with 55 g (¼ cup) white sugar, and simmering until it feels a little syrupy.
as you want it to rise around the edges. Brush the pastry border with egg. Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly golden. While the pastry cooks, combine the ricotta, gruyere, parsley, chives and mustard in a bowl. Season. Use a clean tea towel to press down the centre of the pastry if it has risen slightly – even after a good ‘forking’, puff pastry can rise up for more. Spread the cheese mixture over the pastry base. Slather it on right up to the border, without going over. Top with the asparagus spears, trimming if necessary to fit. Sprinkle with the chopped bacon. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the pastry is puffed and golden. Drizzle with the balsamic glaze. “This recipe is inspired by Annie Smithers of Trentham, who makes food without fuss, but never shy of flavour. This is based on her asparagus tart, but I’m using good store bought puff pastry… Matt Preston from his book Yummy, Easy, Quick.

CREATE YOUR OWN WINTER WONDERLAND This season, get ready to amp up the glamour as maximalism eclipses minimalism in this luxurious winter trend. Words: Olivia Wallace. Over the past couple of weeks, temperatures have quickly dropped, sending many of us indoors to rug up under fluffy doonas and blankets with a good book or an addictive TV series. Now is the time to make your home warm and inviting, a place to spend cosy hours surrounded by beautiful things. When you’re considering updating your interiors, think old Hollywood glam. Gone are the days of cold leather couches and light throws. We’re
welcoming back old favourites such as thick velvet, evident in luxurious sofas and large woollen rugs. White is also taking a back seat to warmer, jewel tones such as emerald, jade, deep teal, blush and burgundy. When you combine these shades with rich fabrics, the effect is that of warmth and opulence. Adding to the warming vibe are brass, copper and gold highlights, particularly in statement lighting or tables.
COLOUR POP This Felix Clock in forest green is from Salt & Pepper.
STAR POWER Since this winter’s trend is glamour, what’s more glam than a large Marilyn Monroe print? A monotone artwork can be used for the centrepiece of a bright feature wall and can serve to highlight other colours throughout the room, especially considering the bold colour trends this season. This print is from Urban Road. Visit urbanroad.com.au.
WE LOVE The Home Republic Vintage Washed quilt cover in Prune. It’s from Adairs.
A beautiful rug can warm up a room and give your frozen feet relief from cold tiles.
STYLISH TOUCH: LIGHTING Adding a touch of brass, gold or copper to a darker room can add an element of luxe to an otherwise plain space. The Comet pendant in copper is from Domayne.

CREATING A COSY BATHROOM Going into the bathroom can be a daunting task in winter, even here on the Sunshine Coast. If you dread getting out of a warm shower or bath, there are ways to create a cosy bathroom for your home. A great way to do this is to install heated towel rails. They not only heat your towels, but raise the temperature of the bathroom, keeping you nice and toasty. Using touches of timber throughout your bathroom can be a simple step to achieving a warmer feel to your bathroom. Itâ€™s not as cold as tiles and the brown and orange undertones are warming. Using orange-toned lighting will also assist in creating a comfortable and relaxing space.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
You’re keen to pursue creative, humanitarian or spiritual pursuits. Whatever you choose to do, lift your thinking from mundane concerns to more lofty and inspirational realms. Music, writing, painting, meditation and helping others are also favoured.
It’s time for sensitive Scorpios to be clever, creative and communicative at work. But (courtesy of retrograde Mars), it’s definitely not a good week to host a jolly family reunion or bring up sensitive childhood issues.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
Jupiter links up with Venus, so make sure you capitalise on the good luck that is heading in your direction. Don’t be so distracted that you fail to recognise a fabulous opportunity when it comes along. Work activities are also favoured.
With Saturn in Capricorn and Mars reversing through your self-esteem zone, you’re likely to slip into worry-wart mode. But, stressing about problems won’t help. Instead, roll your sleeves up, put your head down, and just get on with the tasks at hand.
Adventurous Aquarians prefer to improvise, but, the more practical and organised you are this week, the better the results will be. With Mars reversing through your sign, you’re feeling frustrated and are even more impulsive than usual.
This week (courtesy of retrograde Mars), you’re inclined to question your inner motivations. A soulful examination of your interior life will give you the self-knowledge and confidence to let your quintessential Piscean nature shine.

GREAT NEWS FOR BUYERS Experts predict the market will become more balanced. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane
uture market predictions for major cities around the country by economic forecaster BIS Oxford Economic has yielded some interesting results. Their report, Residential Property Prospects 2018 to 2021, anticipates Sydney house prices will manage a growth rate of only three per cent in the next three years, a major contrast to the staggering 85 per cent rise seen during the 2013 to 2017 boom. Melbourne prices are expected to increase six per cent in the next three years due to strong population growth and Brisbane, perhaps surprisingly, is forecast to have the largest median price rise of 13 per cent by 2021. My Property Preview wanted to see how the Sunshine Coast fit into this model and whether the region could look forward to enjoying a similar boost to Brisbane. BIS senior manager for residential property Angie Zigomanis says he expects to see continued growth on the Coast, but it may not be at the levels we have seen lately. “What we will start to see is a bit of a pull-back from Sydney residents because a slowing of their property market will make it harder for them to sell their home to make the move to places like the Sunshine Coast,” he says. “The big-ticket item of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital has now been completed and while there is another round of projects coming through, they are not on the same scale and speculation on what the local economy looks like will change gear.” Mr Zigomanis says while house price growth may slow, the Sunshine Coast is still in an upturn and investment in
new dwellings and new infrastructure means the region could catch up with, and maintain, the necessities for the population and its anticipated growth. “That could see demand pressures alleviated in the next couple of years,” he says. “After three or four years of solid price growth, affordability steadily becomes more difficult and it becomes harder to get the same level of price growth to come through. “Property buyers should not get too excited as the
“Buyers… will have more wiggle room to negotiate sale prices” Angie Zigomanis
chances of a major correction will be mitigated by record low interest rates, and a relatively stable, albeit subdued, economic environment.” What this means for the average property seller or buyer on the Coast is that while the market has been quite heavily favouring sellers, Mr Zigomanis predicts the industry will shift towards the buyer, creating more balance. “It means buyers will not have to feel rushed to make sure the market isn’t running ahead of them and giving them more wriggle room to negotiate sale prices,” he says.
CENTRE TO HELP SHAPE NEW COMMUNITY AT CALOUNDRA SOUTH
The emerging suburb of Baringa will soon feel even more like home for its new residents. Construction of a community centre at the Caloundra South suburb is now well underway and is expected to be completed later this year. The centre is part of a community hub that will provide a range of facilities for the growing community to meet and build community connections and will include three multi-purpose rooms, play group art space, office space, a meeting room, a kitchen and reception area, covered entry and foyer area and outdoor activity spaces. Mayor Mark Jamieson says the centre was designed and funded in collaboration with developer Stockland to accommodate residential population growth and support the social needs of the burgeoning community. “Its development is part of the Community Hub Pilot Project in Baringa, which was established by the State Government in partnership with council and Stockland to promote the shared use of state and local government assets and resources,” he says. “The early delivery of the community spaces will allow the new community to meet and gather, establish some strong foundations and create a sense of community.”

What was the first property you sold? It was a three-bedroom penthouse apartment in Maroochydore in January 2008. The tenants were three twenty-something guys. I’d have to arrive an hour before the open home time and wake them all up after a Friday night on the town. Then we would collect all the beer cans, bottles and pizza boxes as part of a clean-up before I politely asked them to disappear for an hour. I sold the apartment to a family to use as their holiday home. What was your most recent sale? In the world of strange coincidences, my most recent sale at 78 Albany Street, Sippy Downs, was for the exact client that I sold my first property for.

with MWP’s man in the water
So the WSL has done the deal with the devil at Facebook. No longer can you watch live streaming. Rather you have to go through Facebook, the social platform everyone is moving away from, especially the younger generation – WSL’s market. The reaction? Reading the thousands of comments, most bagged the hell out of it. But on the bright side, they might pick up some new fans, as I think they just lost a lot, including me. Now this weekend, small waves with offshore conditions. Water is still not too bad but the wind… yikes!

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€™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.
