FROM THE EDITOR

A

s you can imagine, a lot of planning goes into each and every one of our magazines – what stories should we share, what issues should we tackle and who should we interview? But, occasionally, an interview with a difference pops up when you least expect it and can change your entire week. That was the case when I received a phone call from Channel Ten confirming that Russell Coight was happy to chat to us ahead of the release of his television series, All Aussie Adventures. To have such a respected and skilled (said with tongue in cheek) Australian legend grace our cover is truly an honour. Hopefully you enjoy his humorous take on the great outdoors as much as we do. You can read the story on page 22. This week’s feature story is a far more serious issue – and one that deserves recognition and support. In writing the story, journalist Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane spent endless hours researching and speaking with the people behind Sunshine Coast eating disorders support network endED. The organisation is devoted to launching the country’s first residential eating disorder treatment facility here in the region – they have our support 100 per cent and I’m sure we aren’t alone. With mortality rates among people living with eating disorders up to 12 times higher than other Australians, it’s vital that support services continue to develop and grow. Turn to page 14 to find out how you can help. Until next week, take care.

QUICK CHAT

LEADING LADY Where on the Sunshine Coast do you live? Buderim. It really has been a dream bringing up three children and watching the sun rise over Mount Coolum each day. First job? I was offered three jobs on the one day and chose a job with the CBA. What are you currently working on? Okay, if you keep it a secret – a new book. Also, the next kick-arse keynote and how to make money while you sleep to support some of the poorest people in the world. Your family includes… Three children, two dogs and one husband.

If you could change one thing on the Coast, what would it be? Bring back Thommo’s – the Sunday sessions, bar and outdoor area where Hoodoo Gurus used to play. Also a light rail from Caloundra to Noosa. Best day in your life? As a child, I loved when my mum would come to sports day and see me compete. Holding our sponsor child in Uganda and finding out not only could she now walk, but she could run. Giving birth to three miracles after saying I wasn’t having kids. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? A turning point was my first keynote in China with 400 people.

First car? Canary poop yellow Corolla. That car could survive on a whiff of an oily rag. What are you reading at the moment? A People’s History of the Vampire Uprising. It was published at the same time as mine by Hachette Australia. I’ve always been partial to vampire stories.

“If you know it and you don’t do it, you don’t really know it”

If your life was a book, what would the title be? Push. Life has been an uphill battle, from being adopted at eight weeks and then losing my parents, to gaining new family and friends. From injury and illness, to having it all and losing it all and creating it again. It feels to get anywhere in life, I’ve had to push.

Catherine Molloy BIO

r e k a e p S

Catherine Molloy is the author of a new book, The Million Dollar Handshake – The ultimate guide to revolutionise how you connect and communicate in business and life. She’s also the owner of Auspac Business Advantage, an-award winning international training company. She is a born and bred Sunshine Coaster and has a passion to improve people’s lives through communication and self-awareness.

In business, what body language mistakes do people make? Not keeping eye contact as they go into their meet and greet, not being conscious of their own body language and the emotions they transfer continually throughout the day to ourselves and others. Favourite song and why? Too many, I have a song for every moment and love to play music loudly. Best advice you’ve been given? Be kind and love one another, by my mum. Where do you take visitors? Love the beaches, so definitely a beach barbecue and a walk in the national park at Noosa. As well as Mooloolaba late afternoon and Maleny for good food and a walk in the forest.

What achievement are you most proud of? Getting our programs running in international colleges and building hope for some of the poorest people in the world. You are happiest when? I’m living on purpose and when I get hugs from my children. What frustrates you the most? When people say they know, but they don’t. If you know it and you don’t do it, you don’t really know it.

If you could tell your 18 year-old self-anything, what would it be? Never give up, keep pushing and don’t listen when someone says you can’t. The only thing that matters in life is love. Did you love enough and did you care enough? Tea or coffee? Cappuccino on Zymil, one-eighth strength. I drink all tea, even from 300-year-old pots in China. NRL or AFL or neither? Both – AFL when I was younger, but now NRL. I was on top of the ladder until I kept travelling on a Wednesday and didn’t get my tips in. Do you have a favourite sports team? Yes – the Broncos and Cowboys.

FEATURE STORY

HOPE IS ON THE HORIZON

Meet the people working to build Australia’s first dedicated live-in eating disorder treatment facility. It will be built in the beautiful Mooloolah Valley and will offer professional help and much-needed hope to those living with these deadly illnesses. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

“America has had homely residential facilities for the last 20 years, it’s just astounding that Australia does not have a single one” Gayle and Mark Forbes, Christine Morgan, MIllie Thomas and Andrew Wallace, MP

or a decade, bulimia nervosa silently destroyed Jorgia Forbes’ life. It savagely terrorised her happiness and her health. “It has robbed me of years of health, happiness and relationships, it has robbed me of my life. I couldn’t see it as others could, because it was inside me,” she says. “I became a little girl again while the eating disorder stole my identity and convinced me I was nothing without it. “The power of the eating disorder [was such that] my world became its world. You are stuck in a world of shame and hate, and you become your own worst critic. Every comment or even compliment is twisted until it no longer resembles what was said.” These powerful and emotionally-fuelled words were not lost on the 100-plus people who sat before Ms Forbes, who flanked by her parents, Mark and Gayle, shakily spoke of her illness on stage at the endED Main Event on Friday night. This evening was a momentous occasion for the Forbes family. Not only was this the first major fundraiser for their vision to see the country’s first purpose-built residential eating disorder treatment facility built on the Sunshine Coast, but it was also the first time 24-year-old Ms Forbes had publicly acknowledged her decade-long battle. There was hardly a dry eye in the room as she provided a glimpse into how the mental illness wreaked havoc on her life. Ms Forbes acknowledged her joy at welcoming her “miracle baby” Ruby Indiana

six months ago and the steadfast relationship she has with partner Steven Martin. “I see a future free from [my eating disorder],” she says. “I will always remember my mantra – first love yourself.” Ms Forbes says that eating disorders, which encompass anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and atypical presentations of each, are the most misunderstood mental illnesses. They are also the deadliest. Mortality

four years ago as a means of connecting with parents and carers who have loved ones with eating disorders and it has morphed into a powerful awareness organisation that has worked tirelessly to secure a future Australian residential treatment facility. The name endED was chosen not only because ED stands for eating disorder, but because that is the name many parents and carers use to address their loved ones when they are in the grips of the mental illness. Mr and Mrs Forbes now work full-time at

rates in people living with eating disorders are up to 12 times that of everyday Australians. Although eating disorders are often stereotyped by their association with teenage girls, people who access services through the Sunshine Coast-based eating disorders support network, endED, range in age from seven to 65 years old. Males make up 25 per cent of Australians with an eating disorder. Mark and Gayle Forbes founded endED

endED in a voluntary capacity, responding to calls from a new family every day seeking advice and support for their loved one’s eating disorder battle. “We know from experience that an eating disorder can be in your home for two to three years without realising it. So when [parents and carers] do realise, it comes out of the blue and they are in shock and don’t know what to do,” Mr Forbes says.

Mr and Mrs Forbes spend time with the parents and carers and then bring in Millie Thomas, a recovery coach, to spend time with the patient. “We have a list of the GPs and other medical professionals that understand eating disorders,” Mr Forbes says. While patients currently have out-patient access to psychologists, counsellors and dieticians, those who need in-patient care only have one choice – hospitalisation in a mental health facility, often for months. “America has had homely residential facilities for the last 20 years, it’s just astounding that Australia does not have a single one,” Mr Forbes says. “We need to get eating disorders out of the shadows to be discussed without the guilt, shame and stigma.” This month, a partnership between endED and national eating disorder not-forprofit organisation the Butterfly Foundation has been established to acquire the idyllic 25-acre Mooloolah Valley property on which the facility will be located, and the Federal Government has announced $1.5 million support for its construction. In announcing the Federal Government support, Minister for Health Greg Hunt says the facility will provide specialist care to hundreds of people experiencing eating disorders, through in-patient and best practice treatment programs. This will be based on individualised programs combining psychological, conventional and functional medicine, and myweeklypreview.com.au

FEATURE STORY holistic therapy-based treatment. “It will advance the way eating disorders are diagnosed and treated, providing 24/7 intensive care and support as well as training, education and advocacy at the 12-bed facility,” he says. “It will also include rooms for recreation, family therapy and group therapy.” Member for Fisher Andrew Wallace, who stood up in parliament in 2016 to tell how his own daughter almost died from anorexia a decade earlier, is now a patron of endED and a passionate advocate for the residential treatment facility. Mr Wallace says eating disorders can be devastating, not only affecting an individual’s relationship with food, but also their body image, confidence, mental health and overall health. “Many suffer in silence, with only 25 per cent of people with eating disorders thought to be diagnosed,” he says. Construction is set to start later this year, with endED Butterfly House expected to open in early 2020. “The project has so far raised $1.3 million in philanthropic funding and has received hundreds of thousands of dollars in donated services and in-kind support,” Mr Wallace says. “My hope is that endED Butterfly House will become a leading light and model for other residential eating disorder centres across the country.” Families in the past have had to spend all their savings, sell their home, or mortgage it up to the hilt in order to afford treatment for their child in overseas residential facilities and this was one of the major factors that drove Claire Middleton to create the Butterfly Foundation in 2002. Ms Middleton battled anorexia for 15 years, followed by bulimia, and then two of her daughters also suffered from anorexia. When sitting in a treatment facility with one of her daughters, Ms Middleton overheard another mother’s heartbreaking predicament. She had gone into debt to send her eldest daughter to an overseas residential treatment facility to recover from an eating disorder and her younger daughter now needed treatment

and she could not afford it. Sadly, this family’s anguish is not unique and has been affecting Australian families for decades. Ms Middleton says an Australian residential facility has always been high on the Butterfly Foundation’s agenda and although she has since resigned from the charity, she has found kindred spirits in the Forbes family and Ms Thomas, and will assist endED into the future. “It’s about giving these people the right dose of help and support to help them to recover,” Ms Middleton says. “The model we have now is not administering the correct dose. It’s like going to the doctor because you have pneumonia and being told, ‘well that’s easy, I can cure you with antibiotics, but you are only allowed to take two pills out of the packet’.” Ms Thomas lived with anorexia for

15-years and completed her recovery journey three years ago. She is now endED’s full-time qualified eating disorder recovery coach. Ms Thomas says ED “held” her from the age of 12 and it got to a point where it was no longer about hiding her mental illness. “You isolate yourself because it was easier without people around asking after you and you become a master manipulator,” she says. “My parents tried everything they possibly could, but I was so hell-bent on the race to the bottom. “My thinking was so off that when I was told I had just two weeks left to live, I was devastated that I wouldn’t have reached my latest goal weight before I died and then came the realisation that I would rather die than continue with living the way that I was living, it was so freakin’ exhausting and it was painful. All rational thinking just goes out the window.” Ms Thomas says it wasn’t until she was 27 and she found Neuro Linguistic Programming and hypnotherapy that she “jumped in boots and all” to recovering. “When your battle is 24/7, naturally your recovery needs to be 24/7. I literally had to condition myself to address every thought that came into my head and if it was from ED, I would have a comeback. It’s like your healthy self taking care of your ED self. “Because ED was in control from the time I was 12, I was emotionally stuck in a pre-adolescence state and I didn’t want to die not knowing what it was like to live a life of freedom without being constrained by another being.” Now being in a position to help other people overcome eating disorders, Ms Thomas says she feels like she “fought that long and that hard for a reason.” “We all have that shared driven passion to make this residential facility happen and I am constantly reminded of how crucial it is that we continue to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves,” she says. “We do this while offering hope. I know from my own experience that if Mum hadn’t continued to fight for me, I wouldn’t be here. Love and hope are such powerful things.”

MALES AND EATING DISORDERS

An increasing number of males from as young as the age of seven are presenting for treatment for eating disorders, according to Butterfly Foundation CEO Christine Morgan. The same triggers that are seen in females are present in males, with a vulnerability found in certain genes. What this means is while the gene mutation ‘loads the gun’, any external factors, like a person’s decision to diet, binge, or excessively bulk-up on muscle, can ‘pull the trigger’, sparking the neural pathway changes that create eating disorders. Ms Morgan says there have been increasing rates of males with bingeing disorders later in life, while teenage boys are presenting with anorexia nervosa and extensive research shows that anabolicandrogenic steroid use among males is increasingly associated with a drive for muscularity and improved appearance. Ms Morgan says with so much conversation happening around childhood obesity, talk about what should or shouldn’t be eaten can also be a trigger from those with the genetic predisposition. Ms Morgan says early warning signs include a significant shift in body shape or size, consistent fixation and value judgements about body shape or size, changes in eating behaviours, avoiding social situations around food and mood swings. “If you do notice these signs, the first step is to arm yourself with some information. Secondly, surround the person with love and a sense of security and acceptance of who they are. It is worthwhile connecting with the counsellors through Butterfly Helpline, because every individual experiences an eating disorder in their own way, so treatment will need to be personalised. The most important thing is not to avoid it.” The Butterfly Foundation is piloting a male body esteem program for schoolaged boys to have positive conversations around body diversity, focusing more on what bodies can do rather than what they look like as a preventative measure against risky behaviours.

ENDED MAIN EVENT More than 100 people gathered at the Lake Kawana Community Centre last Friday for the endED Main Event to raise funds for Australia’s first residential treatment facility for people living with eating disorders. Special guests Millie Thomas and paralympian Curtis McGrath shared their inspirational stories and $35,000 was raised on the night through raffles and auctions, which provided a welcome boost to the coffers for the construction of the treatment facility in Mooloolah Valley.

REVIEW

Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien with WHOS executive director Garth Popple and manager of the Najara Nambour Service Trevor Hallewell.

SUPPORT BOOST More Sunshine Coast women suffering alcohol and drug addiction will have access to a rehab bed thanks to government funding to build a new transitional home. Member for Fairfax Ted O’Brien says $256,060 awarded under the Building Better Regions Fund will help pay for a women’s only six-bedroom rehabilitation building in the Nambour area. The project will enable We Help Ourselves to support female clients in their recovery from drug and alcohol dependence. The home will enable up to 40 additional people each year to access the live-in service.

Sunshine Coast Council has revealed its eight-year plan on how it will cater for the extra traffic forecast in Mooloolaba. The projects, endorsed by council this month, focus on a four-stage upgrade to the Brisbane Road-Walan Street corridor, starting with detailed concept planning and design this financial year. Brisbane Road currently carries around 20,000 vehicles per day and this is expected to increase to about 37,000 vehicles per day by 2041. Stage one of the Mooloolaba corridor improvements is scheduled for 2019-20 and includes the upgrade of Walan Street from Smith Street to Venning Street, including extending Naroo Court.

PROFILE

THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES Sixteen years on, the nation’s all-Aussie bushman Russell Coight is back. He took time out of his busy schedule to chat with My Weekly Preview’s Candice Holznagel about everything from camping and cooking to fashion. Where is your favourite place in Australia and why? Anywhere that I can get away from it all. No people, no fences, no WiFi. Thanks to the NBN that last one is getting easier to find.

Sunshine Coast residents are known to enjoy the odd spot of camping. What are your three top tips to get through a bush weekend? If you want camping tips

I

t has been close to two decades since an Australian bush legend hit our television screens. Long before the charm of Bear Grylls or the swagger of Steve Backshall, intrepid traveller Russell Coight was showing us how it was done. Sporting khaki shorts, one-of-a-kind dance moves and a challenged sense of direction, he became a household name off the back of his television hit, All Aussie Adventures. Sadly, the series came to a screeching halt after a court order prohibited Russell from coming within 500 metres of any marsupial – or so we’re told. But now, he is back – bigger, better and funnier than ever for a seven-episode season three.

What have you been up to since we last saw you on our television screens? My wildlife park in Darwin keeps me pretty busy, especially now that the RSPCA have lifted their ban. Although our crocodile petting zoo is not going quite well – we’re having a few teething problems. I’ve also been busy working on other ideas for a new television series. Inspired by the ‘slow TV’ movement, I strapped a camera to the bull bar of my 4WD and crossed the Nullarbor. Seventeen hours and 123 separate road-kills captured in full high definition. Still waiting to hear back from SBS.

Tell us about the new show. What can we expect? The new show will take me all

inspiration from, and where do you shop for those shorts? I have pretty

over Australia (apart from certain national parks that I am legally prohibited from coming within 200 kilometres of). As with the earlier series, viewers will get to see everything: from the time I head bush and set up camp to the moment when I am air-lifted to safety by the Royal Flying Doctors.

simple tastes in clothes. Khaki shirt and shorts, canvas underwear. All my gear comes from an exclusive French label. I think it’s called Disposale Aussi – or something like that.

I hear that this season will have a strong focus on cooking. Do you have any cooking tips for our readers? You’ve done your research! This new series will feature more camp cooking, with some pretty special recipes – wait until you see my croquembouche damper. We’ll also be having a mystery box. Each week viewers have to guess what marsupial I’m cooking with. As for tips, here’s one I recently learned. When the recipe says “a tablespoon of oil” it apparently doesn’t mean engine oil.

Will we be seeing some of your legendary dance moves? I like to think I can still bust a few moves. I know for a fact I can also bust a few tendons, so we might have to pull back a little. But yes – I’ll be getting down on the red dirt floor.

You have a terrific bush fashion sense. Where do you get your fashion

Is it true that a petition to get your show back on the air garnered 4000 signatures? What do you think this says about your popularity? Perhaps we’ll see you up for the next Australian election? To be honest, I have been overwhelmed with the support I have received. Not a day goes by that someone doesn’t come up to me in the street, wanting an autograph or a selfie or to deliver a summons. But would I consider a stint in politics? Probably not again. My brief time as a candidate for the Hunters, Fishers, Four Wheel Drivers and Boot Scooters Party was more than enough. I’m still dealing with accusations of travel expense rorts.

Have you ever had the opportunity to visit the Sunshine Coast, and when? Not too long ago I was visiting Noosa National Park and I was lucky enough to discover an extremely rare species of ground parrot. Scientists didn’t even know this creature existed until I drove over one. It’s now named after me. Coightus Extinctus.

can I suggest you pick up a copy of my best-selling guidebook, Coight’s Camping Compendium. You’ll find hundreds of handy hints for heading bush. It’s also edible (in an emergency situation) and – if nature calls – the last 20 pages are printed on soft double-ply paper.

How much water does a human need to survive in the desert? There’s a very simple formula. It’s y = x(n³-q) where y is the number of litres, x represents the outside temperature, n is your body mass index and q is the type of water (sparkling or still). Of course, in the northern hemisphere it’s the other way round. Does that help?

The Sunshine Coast is known for its beaches, its summer, shopping and style. What are your survival tips for local residents navigating these ‘treacherous’ city conditions? You’ll definitely need a 4WD if you plan on tackling Hastings Street, Noosa during school holidays. As for getting a reservation at any decent Coast restaurant I would be taking a full survival kit (emergency rations, flares, first aid kit).

What inspirational piece of advice would you like to pass on to your fans? I’m often reminded of the words my father, Russell Coight Senior, said just before he died. “Are you sure the safety catch is on?” I’ve never forgotten it.

Please tell us when season three will be airing. Channel Ten told me “very soon”. Mind you, that’s what they said about a decision on my proposal for a bush endurance series, Outback Ninja, and I’m still waiting to hear back.

Will there be a season four, five, six? (We hope so!) Let’s see how the fans feel about this series shall we? Wouldn’t want to get ahead of myself. Last time that happened I was run over by my own 4WD.

NDIS PROMOTION

Understanding the NDIS The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for people living with a disability. The NDIS can become overwhelming for participants and their family members. But finding the right NDIS registered service provider will make the process easier for participants and the families involved by assisting with well-informed, pre-planning. Long time Caloundra resident Jenny became increasingly stressed and confused when she started enquiring about the NDIS. “There’s so much to think of when you have to try and put a plan together. “As soon as I met Jane from Just Better Care I knew I was in good hands.” “Jane went through every aspect of my life to identify the areas I might need help. I’m now confident that my care plan will provide me the flexibility and freedom I need to be happy.” We would like to explain the steps involved from start to end. STEP 1 Getting ready for your first NDIS meeting. Find an NDIS registered service provider who can assist you and your family with the preplanning if required. The pre-planning is an individualised 1:1 session with a coordinator. During this critical first step your provider will help you start to think about what is important to you, what supports you currently have in place and what supports you may need in the future. The coordinator will support you to complete and answer questions related to the NDIS, and help with the forms and with calculating the funds you’re entitled to.

23.indd 1

It is important to think about the things that are important to you, and all your needs and goals prior to your NDIS meeting. STEP 2 Meeting with the NDIA You will be contacted by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to set up a planning meeting. To create your first plan you will meet with an NDIS planner or local area coordinator to have a conversation about your current situation and supports. STEP 3 Starting your plan Once your plan is approved, it is time to action it. There are supports available to help you implement and monitor your plan. This is called support coordination. Your coordinator will link you with service providers in your area, address any barriers to accessing services and build your capacity to gain more independence. STEP 4 Turning your plan into action Your coordinator will take the time to get to know you, and identify the best ways to support you achieve your goals. Whether it’s your career aspirations, exploring a passion, or travelling the world, together you and the NDIS can make it possible.

EPIC RUN AIMS TO RAISE $25,000 FOR DEMENTIA Seven super-fit locals have joined ultra-marathon runner Jamie Milne to run 1400 kilometres across the UK. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

A

team of seven Sunshine Coast locals are joining experienced and in-demand strength and conditioning coach Jamie Milne on his latest epic run to commemorate the 10th anniversary of his Many Miles For Mary (MMFM) campaign. Mr Milne has hand-picked the team, which is currently running 1400 kilometres over 14 days from Lands End Cornwall to John O’Groats in Scotland, with the aim of raising $25,000 for the Australian Dementia Research Foundation. Mary was Mr Milne’s grandmother and played a pivotal role in his early upbringing. Scotland was her homeland, making this an emotional fundraising quest for the team. Dan and Lee Rolley, of local building company A Rolley and Sons, are among the group of runners who left the Sunshine Coast to begin their quest last week. “We’ve been members of (Jamie’s) gym since it started, and we’ve been part of his support crew for other MMFM campaigns, riding bikes and such, so when he asked us to be part of the team, we said yes and didn’t think too hard about what we’d signed up for,” Mrs Rolley said ahead of the journey.

“We’ve done some great training to prepare for the run, with a 20 ‘kayer’ on the weekend and we’ve done a fair bit of trail and hill running too. Jamie has a unique way of looking at ultra endurance and how to train for it, and I reckon it works for me so far… a few days into the run I might tell you something different. “But there’s a really good bunch of

people who are taking time out of their lives to do this, so it will be amazing.” Mrs Rolley says the cause is also dear to her heart, having lost her grandfather to dementia. “It was hard to watch such a gentle giant become lost to himself and to everyone else around him. He lost all connection and it was hard for everybody.

“Most of us have been affected in some way by a loved one battling with Alzheimer’s and dementia. “We will be trying to run as many of the kilometres as we can and we’re taking a six-day holiday at the end. Hopefully they won’t have to wheel me around London,” Mrs Rolley quips. Dementia is the second leading cause of death of Australians each year. There are currently 413,016 Australia’s living with dementia and by 2050, it is estimated that this will increase to 900,000. With no cause or cure currently available, research grants are vital in reducing these statistics. The Australian Dementia Research Foundation helps to grow capacity in dementia research through funding Australia’s best and brightest early career researchers to improve future outcomes for people living with dementia, their careers, family and friends.

ADVERTISMENT

Looking For A New Mattress?

IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE, READ THIS… • Retired GM of Bedding Franchise Admits mattress margins are ‘HUGE’ (even when they are on sale) • A $4,000 RRP mattress can be manufactured in China for less than $400 • Australian manufactures supply retailers with almost identical mattresses with different labels so consumers can’t compare prices

Read This Shocking Admission From A Retired Bedding Franchise General Manager and Avoid Being Ripped Off

• Retailers often refuse to tell you exactly what’s inside their mattresses (partly so you can’t compare mattresses, partly because they’d be embarrassed to reveal the truth, and partly because they don’t know)

R

• Local manufacturer Dial-A-Bed has been making mattresses for 15 years and are up-front about the components in their mattresses

etired General Manager of one of Australia’s largest specialty bedding stores recently admitted even if you buy a bed on sale, the margins are still huge. In addition to marking up a mattress by around 300%, the retailer gets another 12% ‘rebate’ from the manufacturer. Mattresses that sell for $10,000 in specialty bedding and department stores are being made for as little as $1,500. Mattresses that sell for $4,000 can be made in China for less than $400. The truth is… Uninformed Consumers Are Being Ripped Off Most local manufacturers are not helping either. They work with retailers to drive prices up and make it impossible for consumers to compare mattresses. One way they do this is by supplying each retail store with essentially the same mattress, but with different labels (brand names) and prices. On top of that, they refuse to tell you exactly what’s inside the mattress so you don’t actually know what you’re getting. And to further confuse you, they make up fancy terminology to make their components seem better. Local manufacturer, Dial-A-Bed are sick and tired of the deceit in their industry. They’ve been making mattresses in Brisbane for 15 years and sell directto-the-public from their 4 company-owned stores. That means you can buy at genuine wholesale prices and save the 300% mark-ups you are forced to pay at other stores. On top of that, they are totally transparent about what’s in their mattresses. And offer the following information to prevent you from being disappointed and ripped off when you buy your next mattress. What’s In A Mattress? Springs Unless a mattress is made entirely of foam or latex, it will contain a core of springs. These springs are made by a handful of companies (usually in China) and imported into Australia flattened. Bonnel Springs are made from a cylindrical coil of wire attached between guide wires and hoops on the top and bottom. These springs are tried and tested. And they are affordable. But because they are made of continuous wire, they can easily transfer movement across the bed. Pocket Springs are also imported into Australia flattened. They are wrapped individually in cylinders of fabric and work independently of each other which

minimises partner disturbance. Pocket Springs are slightly more expensive than Bonnel Springs but well worth it. Side Supports Cheap Bonnel Spring mattress don’t have any side supports. More expensive ones have a single butterfl y side support (looks like half a butterfly). Here at Dial A Bed we use double butterfly side supports (looks like a full butterfly) so the edge of the bed remains firm when you sit on it. Cheaper Pocket Spring mattresses either have no side supports or use a simple metal hoop at the top and bottom. The best way to give side support is to encase the springs in a high quality density foam box. That’s what we do here at Dial A Bed. Comfort Layers This refers to the foam / latex layers that sit on the springs. This is a major part of the mattress and makes a big difference to the comfort, longevity and cost. Not all foams are the same quality. Foam is graded by density (or weight) and softness. The higher the density (heavier) the longer the foam will last. Density has nothing to do with softness. You can get high density foam (heavy foam) in soft, medium, and firm. The problem is, most retailers won’t tell you the density of the foam in each mattress (most probably don’t even know). Memory or Gel Foam is also sometimes used as a comfort layer. Both foams have slow re-lease qualities which enable them to hug your body and relieve pressure points. But this can make them warmer to sleep on. Gel Foam is injected with a special substance to increase air circulation and keep your mattress cooler. Latex can also be used as a comfort layer. Like foam, not all latex is the same. Genuine latex is highly elastic and will last for many years. Synthetic and hybrid latex becomes brittle over time. The top comfort layer is in the quilting. Beds with a cloud-like feel usually have a lot of polyester in the quilting. While this may be lovely at first, it will quickly flatten (within weeks). To prevent this we include foam in our quilting. Pillowtop This is usually an extra layer/s of foam attached to one side of the mattress. While this may add to the

• You can save hundreds (sometimes thousands) everyday by getting your mattress from their factory stores • They offer free advice and ordering over the phone on 1300 132 231 comfort of a mattress, depending on the density of the foam, it will contour to your body over time. We use high quality (i.e. high density) foam to minimise this. Pillowtop mattresses are usually single-sided (non fl ip) which effectively halves their life (although many of our mattresses are still guaranteed for 10 years). Why Choose Dial A Bed Unbeatable Wholesale Prices: Overall, our standard prices are around 70% cheaper than other stores because we manufacture ourselves – right here in Brisbane. Every Mattress Is Different: Our cheaper mattresses cost less because they are more basic with Bonnel Springs, no side supports and limited foam. Our more expensive mat-tresses cost more because they have pocket springs, foam box side supports and include more / higher quality foam or latex. But all cost around 70% less than other retailers. Easy to Compare: We’re happy to show you what’s inside each mattress so you know exactly what you’re getting and you can compare mattresses across our range. Genuine Guarantee: While most retailers simply refer you to the manufacturer who may give you the run-around and force you to pay for freight to examine the mattress, we stand behind our products. If there is a problem, we will come to your home, inspect your mattress, and make things right straight away.

MY OPINION

IS KOMBUCHA THE NEW COKE?

A REVIEW OF VALUE

Sami Muirhead says you know times have changed when school canteens start introducing kombucha and braised brisket burgers.

Richard O’Leary questions why we value some material objects more highly than others and says more expensive, doesn’t always equal better.

R

emember when we were kids and eating tuckshop meant devouring a sausage roll, a carton of chocolate milk, and a Chomp chocolate? And yet somehow we were a skinnier generation of kids compared to today. Our school palettes were not as sophisticated, but I was happy with my Vegemite sandwich and orange for my staple daily diet. How times have changed. This week, Sunshine Beach High canteen made national headlines over its healthy tuckshop menu choices. The line-up could rival any fancy cafe and includes couscous salads, gluten-free pastas, gourmet curries, braised brisket burgers and zucchini fritters. The thing that made me feel really old and really daggy was the drink that has been added to the high school menu: kombucha. Sunshine Beach High is believed to be the first school in Australia to stock cans of Kombucha. One in four of our kids in Australia are overweight, so it is wonderful the tuckshop is leading the way in the health stakes. I have never tasted kombucha. I do not even know how to say the name of this drink. So I do what I often do with exboyfriends: I Googled it and did a bit of cyberstalking. It is pronounced ‘kom-boocha’. Do you note the word ‘boo’ in the middle? Just saying. I also learnt this week how to pronounce the word ‘pho’. We have a gorgeous

Vietnamese restaurant in our fancy new work digs at Maroochydore and I do wonder most days how one pronounces the traditional Vietnamese soup: pho. It is not pronounced ‘faux’, as in fur. It does not rhyme with ‘hoe’. It is in fact pronounced ‘farrrr’, as in ‘far out this is mind-boggling, how on Earth can three letters be so difficult to nail?’. I know many of you beautiful toned people in your activewear are laughing at me now, thinking how terribly behind the times I am. I have not even switched over to charcoal toothpaste yet, as I am still using the faithful old white Colgate stuff. I don’t trust black toothpaste. Turmeric lattes? No thanks. Sounds like a foot disease. Sushi and a latte is about as crazy as I get in the fancy food stakes. So back to kombucha. The definition of this supposed new superfood is ‘a fermented drink made from bacteria and yeast mixed with black or green tea and sugar. The sugary tea turns into kombucha with the help of a SCOBY – a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast, which looks a bit like a floating mushroom. It is this bacteria and yeast-fuelled fermentation process that gives it an off-putting vinegary smell. Sounds about as tempting as a lukewarm glass of chardy in the middle of summer. But perhaps I should give it a go, because when you think about it, red wine is simply fermented grapes.

M

y nine-year-old son left his $100 sneakers at a skate park last week and by the time we went back to get them, they were gone. He was returning to his old school after a two-year adventure up north so we had to get him some new ones – and instead of forking out another bright green note, we used a blue one instead. My son’s reaction when we bought him a pair of shoes for a tenth of the price? Nothing. He didn’t care. So why did we buy him the more expensive shoes in the first place? I suspect it was because we cared what people thought, and to be generous, we also probably believed the extra cash would ensure better quality shoes. I’ll be interested to see how long his new ones last. I bring up this subject because it got me thinking about the value we place on things. It reminded me of the story about Napoleon III using aluminium cutlery while his guests had to rough it by using the old gold utensils. Aluminium had been around for a little while, but it was very difficult to produce in large quantities. That was until 1854 when French scientist Henri Sainte-Claire Deville developed a way to produce the metal on a larger scale – albeit in small enough quantities that it

was still reserved for the really rich. It soon became a la mode for the French elite to wear broaches and buttons made from this shiny, light metal. As the story goes, Napoleon III went one step further and had his plate and cutlery made from aluminium. Just two years later it was discovered you could make heaps of aluminium from electrolysis, and a couple of years after that, scientists worked out you could make aluminium oxide from bauxite for next to nothing. The aluminium market crashed and you can only suspect that the French emperor resumed eating with gold knives and forks. But what is it about humans that we think more expensive equals better? I know, I know – supply and demand. But are we really that shallow? Those aluminium utensils weren’t any different from one day to the next. Their physical characteristics hadn’t changed, but people’s perceptions of them had. Is there any other animal that carries on with such bizarre behaviour? You’d never see our closest living relative, the chimpanzee, carry on in such an odd way despite sharing 96 per cent of our DNA. In fact, when it comes to putting values on things, they may be chimps, but it could easily be argued, we are chumps.

PAPER AND FELT MEET IN THESE UNIQUE WORKS Artist Zela Bissett combines fibres from both plants and animals in her latest exhibition, now on show in Eumundi.

Z

ela Bissett’s works in the exhibition Deeply Felt, at Eumundi’s Wan’din’in Arts Space, show an artist’s journey in reconciling two apparently disparate media – wool felt and cast paper. The works represent an innovative marriage between plant and animal fibres. The rich colours and textures of wool and silk contrast with the earthy feel of handmade botanical papers, reconciled largely through the intermediary of patient and delicate embroidery. This exhibition traces the development of Ms Bissett’s relationship with wool felt from her first encounter and early experiments, such as Water Stories, to her recent complex wearable garments with environmental themes including Defender’s Vest and Rainbow Warrior. Ms Bissett’s journey with handmade botanical papers occurred concurrently with her exploration of felting. After being introduced to making paper from cooked and beaten plant fibres, Ms Bissett discovered she could use her skills as a clay worker to make clay masters of low-relief sculptures and cast the reverse image in plaster. When the newly formed paper sheet is pressed into such a plaster mould, the paper takes the forms of the mould in a permanent manner, and with surprising strength. In works such as Song of the Seasons, multiple iterations of the same mould can be seen, individualised by the use of different plant fibres and decorative treatments, combined by the woollen felted background of rich greens. See Ms Bissett’s work this at Wan’din’in at the rear of Discover Eumundi Heritage and Visitor Centre, until July 29.

TODD’S TALES Todd Widdicombe knocks the top off a lager that has become a mainstay in his beer fridge.

I

t’s been a long while between drinks friends so perhaps I should reintroduce myself. People call me Todd, which is a good thing because that’s my name. I’m a happily married (well I’m happy, my wife’s married) 43-year-old. About 16 years ago my wife and I were the victims of a terrifying home invasion that left us mentally scarred and unable to sleep. This happened four times in total. Good news is we’ve grown quite fond of our kids now. I was raised in Perth in the ’80s as an only child, which really upset my sister. I hate people who hold grudges for a ridiculous amount of time, but not as much as I hate my Year 9 French teacher. I believe that lasagne is just spaghetti cake and that dogs are the most loyal, protective creatures on the planet, unless someone near you has food in which case you’re on your own. The same rule applies for your teenage kid. When it comes to love I really just want someone to look at me the way I look at chips and gravy. That’s not a lot to ask. My folks, John and Jen, have been

married for 48 years. Yes it’s amazing and I don’t know how they do it cause they just make it look so bloody hard. I asked them back in 2001 for directions to a restaurant and as of five minutes ago they were still arguing about it. Bless. Speaking of my mum Jen, she has always said that “alcohol is your enemy” and I get that but Jesus said we should love our enemy so what are you gonna do, right? And because vodka mixes well with everything except good decision-making, I’m sticking with beers this weekend people and one beer in particular, the Brick Lane Brewing company’s mighty fine Lager. Brick Lane is essentially 25 mates, including Mick Molloy, Eddie McGuire and Billy Slater, who have come together to worship at the altar of the amber fluid and in doing so they’ve created a ripper that is fast becoming a staple in my beer fridge. The Brick Lane Lager is a cracker, brewed as a traditional Munich-style lager using a Pilsen-style pale malt it has a richer, bolder taste than most lagers. It’s a very clean, crisp and delicious beer and in the words of the great Bruce McAvaney it’s ultimately very “special”. I give the Brick Lane Brewing Co. Lager a solid four out of five thumbs up. So treat it like a taxi this weekend and get into it. Good to be back to share a frothy one. Cheers.

PISTACHIO OLIVE OIL CAKE WITH RUM POACHED PEAR, RED LIQUORICE & BERRY SORBET

FOOD FANATIC Noosa restaurateur Matt Sinclair burst onto the scene as the runner-up of the 2016 season of MasterChef and he has become a Sunshine Coast fixture since setting up his restaurant, Sum Yung Guys, in Sunshine Beach. Mr Sinclair has maintained his television presence through his own TV show, The Cook’s Pantry, and recently reappeared on the latest season of MasterChef – this time as an alumni competitor. Mr Sinclair admits he was still just as nervous when appearing as one of the guest experts, as he had to pull out all the stops on a single dish to ensure he could hold the upper hand over this year’s contestant.

Graeme Mair and his Birtinya restaurant Wildflower are known for delicious desserts, with guests travelling from far and wide just to sample the delectable dishes. And this one is perfect for winter using in-season pears. Mr Mair, the Wildflower head chef, says red liquorice is rarely seen and it’s create a unique flavour accompaniment to the warm, light-textured olive oil cake. He says he found himself in a kitchen 15 years ago thanks to one of his now best mates, who is a French chef, and he quickly fell in love with cooking as it bought back found memories of his grandmother and her love of cooking. Mr Mair previously worked at Tides in Caloundra and Spicers Tamarind in Maleny and is passionate about local fresh produce, has a flair for creating new dishes and simply loves to cook.

BUSINESS & FINANCE effective access to a portfolio of bonds or notes, which minimises the risks associated with holding only a single security. • Transparency – ETFs are subject to the full disclosure requirements of other exchangetraded entities. • Low cost – Management fees are generally much lower than commissions on direct bond purchases and managed funds. • No minimum investment – There is no minimum investment level, as there is with most direct bond investments (generally $500,000 for a single holding). Investors should also be aware of the risks associated with interest rate- based ETFs: • Interest-rate risk – If interest rates rise, fixed-rate bond prices will decline. This is because new bonds are issued at higher yields as interest rates increase, making the existing or outstanding bonds less attractive. This risk is more acute in bonds of longer duration (duration risk). • Credit (default) risk – The risk that the issuer may be unable to meet its payment obligations. Credit risk is a greater concern for lower-quality, non-investment-grade bonds. • Inflation risk – Higher inflation will erode the purchasing power of the income generated by the fund. Floating-rate notes tend to outperform fixed-rate bonds in a rising inflation environment because the coupons are adjusted regularly in line with market interest rates. With inflation on the rise and rates expected to move steadily higher around the globe, the pressure is building for bond yields to move higher. Our currents preference is invest in variable-rate exposure to high-quality Australian senior bonds with an average credit rating of A+ and average maturity of two to five years.

INTEREST RATE SECURITIES

I

nterest-rate instruments and securities, such as term deposits and hybrid securities, play an important role in a well-constructed portfolio. They can help drive the income component of a portfolio as well as minimise portfolio volatility more broadly. There are also a number of interest-rate-based exchangetraded funds (ETFs) that can be used to build out an allocation to this asset class. An ETF is a diversified collection of assets (like a managed fund) that trades on the stock exchange in the same way as a share. Its investment objective is typically to provide investment results that correspond to the performance of an underlying index. Consequently, ETFs offer investors the diversification of an investment fund, with the easy tradability of a stock. ETFs now track most major indices for stocks, bonds, commodities and other asset types, opening the door to markets that may have been difficult for investors to access in the past. Interest-rate-based ETFs can enhance portfolio outcomes in numerous ways: • A regular and stable income stream – Income is typically distributed monthly. • Improved liquidity – Trading these products on the ASX makes trading easier than in over-the-counter markets. Most ETFs remain liquid even during periods when bond trading volumes are thin. • Reduce portfolio volatility – Historically, bonds have exhibited a low correlation with equities and can increase in value when risk assets are under stress. • Diversification – ETFs provide cost-

EXPERT TIPS FROM THE EXPERTS IN AUDIOLOGY One of the most common complaints we receive in our practice is that people struggle to hear conversations in a restaurant or a crowded room. Most people instinctively place themselves in the corner, so that they can see everything going on. That’s great if you’re a “people watcher”, but it’s the worst thing you can do if you have hearing problems. Our ears face forward too, so if you’re facing the crowd, you’re hearing the crowd. For those suffering from hearing loss the best place to sit is towards the corner of the room with your back to the noise and facing those you want to hear, not the crowd. This position ensures you block out as much background noise as possible, get less reverberation from the walls and focus your hearing onto those in your party. Even better, if they have an outdoor area, take a coat and sit outside, away from the noise. Restaurants 30 years ago were comfortable places to communicate,

they had nice soft comfortable chairs, thick carpet, curtains and table clothes, and soft background dinner music. Whilst today’s cuisine is much more varied and exciting, health and hygiene regulations and changing interior design have conspired to make dining out an exercise in frustration for many of us. Hardwood or tiled floors, easy clean hard chairs and bare BAR table tops, together with lots of windows, mostly closed so the air con is adding it’s noise to the room, and of course loud background music make talking difficult, so everyone speaks louder, and the end result is that many of us struggle, even with normal hearing. The same problem exists in many homes these days, with the trend for open plan living meaning kitchen noises intrude into the tv or living areas. Repositioning the TV so that the noise is behind you, or running the dishwasher when you go to bed, instead of straight after the meal can help to reduce the problem.

SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22)

Does your daily routine seem to be moving along at a snail’s pace? Be patient and have faith that promising things are developing behind the scenes. Mercury and Mars are both retrograde, so it’s time to retreat and reflect.

Many Librans have trouble making decisions. You want to please everyone, so you can end up sitting on the fence, watching other people make important decisions for you. This week, consider your choices carefully and make a firm decision.

With Mars and Mercury both retrograde, strive to manage misunderstandings and patch up problems in a cooperative fashion. You’re very focused on professional projects, but don’t put all your eggs in the one work basket.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)

CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)

PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)

The retro Mars/Uranus square revs up your restless (and reckless) side and triggers your tendency to become distracted. Be extra careful when walking near traffic, driving, cycling or jogging.

Capricorns are usually awesome organisers, but, with Mars and Mercury both retrograde, your managerial mojo may have (temporarily) deserted you, as your confidence takes a nose-dive. Don’t waste energy feeling frustrated.

Aquarians are feeling restricted and reckless! The retro Mars/Uranus square increases your impulsive and unpredictable side, and makes you more accident-prone than usual, so steer clear of distractions and stop rushing.

This week’s unsettled stars imbue you with a feeling of intense urgency, but gradual, structured modifications are what’s needed at the moment. With Mercury reversing through your work zone, it’s definitely not a good time to apply for a job.

PROPERTY

LUXURY PROPERTIES FETCHING TOP DOLLAR Save your pennies – if you want to break into the prestige property market on the Sunshine Coast, you’ve got some tough competition.

T

he prestige property market is in full swing across the Sunshine Coast, with waterfront canal homes and apartments or luxury properties with easy access to the beach continuing to attract high sales figures. In a show of strength of the property market and the value the Sunshine Coast still represents to homeowners and investors, homes and apartments in the $2 million-plus price bracket continue to be snapped up, with demand remaining for more listings. Next property Group’s Karen Jones says homeowners and developers are realising their waterfront properties have limitless potential if they were to create something spectacular on the land they own. A great example of this is the Tangalooma residences at 63 River Esplanade in Mooloolaba. “A local purchased the old ‘pink house’ through us in 2014 and created high end, luxurious residences. Nothing of this calibre has been seen on the Coast ever before and we have seen three of the prestige residences there sell for well over $5 million,” Ms Jones says. “There has also been a $6 million-plus

Tangalooma communal terrace sale at the end of Mooloolah Drive, Minyama and a $5 million plus on Mooloolah Island. Sales at this level have been few and far between since the GFC, but our prime positioned properties are now hotly contested.” Ms Jones says Alexandra Headland is in great demand at present, with high-end properties selling “in a matter of weeks”. Mooloolaba, Minyama and Buddina are also desired hot spots as are beachside homes in Moffat and Dicky beaches. “Buyers want the beach or water, which

have always been highly sought after, but I think as the Coast grows, the percentage of these properties in the overall market will shrink, thereby making them more valuable,” Ms Jones says. McGrath Estate Agents’ Geoff Ohmsen says he has seen high demand in Minyama, Mooloolaba and Yaroomba, with homes and apartments in the $1.2 million to $2 million range being quickly snapped up. “Homes are generally more popular, but I have sold a few prestige apartments over $2 million this year to international clients,” he says. “The Southern market (Sydney and Melbourne) is still attracted to the Sunshine Coast, but our locals are still giving them plenty of competition. “There has been a slight increase in demand for finished homes, but the demand is still there for the blank canvas homes needing demolition. In the end, astute buyers will always pay slightly more for a well finished home that has a ‘wow’ factor.” Ms Jones says there has also been a slight change in the demographic of interstate buyers. “Previously when we have had a hot

30 Sunbird Chase, Parrearra market, the majority of buyers moving here were retirees or soon to be retirees. I am selling many prestige homes to these buyers but also families with school age children. I have sold a Minyama waterfront for over $3 million to a family relocating from Tamworth, and many homes to families moving from Sydney and Melbourne,” she says. “There is a mix of locals upgrading their properties to the best position they can afford and non-local buyers who are still seeing value in our prestige market. “There is a real ‘buzz’ on the Coast this year, with all the development and infrastructure upgrading, locals and interstate buyers alike are excited again by our prestige properties.”

Yandina, like many Sunshine Coast townships, is undergoing a transformation from country town to thriving locale on the back of the growing population across the entire region as buyers look for less expensive housing options.

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Yeah I kinda stuffed up last weekend with my prediction on waves…my bad! Soz. This weekend the conditions look fine. The swell? Not so much. Maybe it’s time for a road trip down to northern New South Wales or Straddie? I nearly forgot about that place. Some good news from down Moffatway is that Matt from Moffat Beach Brewing Co won a gold medal for his drink! Plus, The Pocket Espresso Bar has a new bigger and better home. Check it out and thank me later. Have a great weekend peeps!

everyone’s pride and joy. Gardens bring joy to a home. They offer a place of reflection, a beautiful space to relax and chill after a hectic week. For many of us however, the reality is our busy lives don’t stop on Friday. We simply don’t have time, or energy to maintain them. Imagine if your home was surrounded by acres of parklands and gardens. A lake with boardwalks, bike and pathways, grass to run free on or just kick a ball around on. And whilst it was yours to enjoy, someone else took loving care of it. Sunshine Cove offers all this and more. Much more, right in the heart of Maroochydore’s CBD. From luxury waterfront homes to chic urban terraces, you’ll find some of the most architecturally innovative homes on the coast right here at Sunshine Cove. Why not drop by and take a look around for yourself. And when you’re ready to know more, come talk to us.
