Do you want to know the secrets to creating a successful business? Author of 16 bestselling books and award-winning entrepreneur, Dale Beaumont has just published a guide for those trying to become an accomplished business owner. Titled Secrets Of Business Experts Exposed, this book features 13 interviews with some of Australia’s leading business leaders who reveal what it takes to succeed in a Q&A with Dale. We have one copy of this book to give away.
FROM THE EDITOR
lbert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.” I think, from time to time, many of us are guilty of this. You know how it is: life is busy, work is busy and some days you just find yourself on autopilot. So, how can we ensure we remain present, mindful and use our brain to its full capacity? The brain is a fascinating and intricate organ. Its activity is as unique as your fingerprint and its storage capacity is endless. What is the key to harnessing this brain power? This week, Leigh Robshaw delves into the minds of leading experts Dr Jared Cooney Horvath and Dr John Medina to discover exactly what it takes to boost your thinking. I hope you find the story as interesting as we did. It’s on page 12. Also this week, we chat with legendary pop star, Leo Sayer. He’s bringing his 70th birthday tour to the Sunshine Coast in February – no doubt his fans will love the opportunity to see him perform at an intimate venue. Noticed more middle-aged women hitting the waves lately? We look at the rise of women surfers who are turning to surfing to keep fit and have fun. Plus, we have local news, entertainment, food, fashion and property. Until next week, take care. Enjoy the weekend ahead.

If your life was a book, what would the title be? Extraordinarily Ordinary.
If you could change one thing on the Coast what would it be? I would definitely improve the public transport system. With more and more people taking up residency here we need to take a serious look at how all these people are going to get around and the impact that has on this beautiful place we all call home. Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point? Becoming a mother was a turning point for me. Raising a child is the most challenging yet rewarding experience you can have. It has grounded me and helped me focus on what really matters in life. You are happiest when? I’m spending time with my family and friends, trying out new recipes and exploring the great outdoors.
“Dream big and work smart to make those dreams a reality”
Favourite song and why? Can I have two? My latest favourite is I Said Hi by Amy Shark. I love her voice and the depth and determination in this song. I also love Pharrell Williams’ Happy. It makes me want to get up and dance every time I hear it.
What are you watching right now and why do you love it? Blue Planet II by Sir David Attenborough. How long have you lived on the Sunshine Coast? Thirty years. I have travelled around Australia and have been to some amazing places but the Coast will always be home. I hope to spend at least the next 30 here too. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? I love exploring the Coast and still continue to find new places to visit. Recent discoveries and new favourites are Chambers Island and Buderim Falls. Where do you take visitors when they come to the Coast? We usually go to the beach, Kawana Farmers Market for the best local fresh produce and Glass House Mountains Lookout for spectacular views.
What frustrates you the most? People and companies who blatantly don’t care about the environment. How do you deal with your frustrations? Yoga or a swim in the ocean. The sand, salt water and sea breeze can do wonders.
If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? Pay off the mortgage, look after my family and invest in my business so that I could deliver all of the awesomeness on my wish list while creating local jobs. I’d love to get involved with some organisations and charities doing great things with the ocean clean-up and Great Barrier Reef conservation too. If you could tell your 18 year-old self anything what would it be? Trust your intuition. Don’t limit yourself. Dream big and work smart to make those dreams a reality because anything and everything is possible. Keep searching and you will find a way. What is your preference, tea or coffee and how do you have it? I definitely prefer tea. My favourite is The Fresh Chai Co Masala chai. It’s amazing hot or cold. I drink it all year round.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR BRAIN WORK BETTER
The seemingly natural decline in brain power that affects us as we age isn’t inevitable – there are activities you can do to keep your brain sharp at any age. My Weekly Preview finds out what they are, and debunks a few myths in the process. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
“If an adult wants to keep the brain fresh, they have to keep changing the rule set and keep doing something unpredictable” Dr Jared Cooney Horvath

ant to boost your brain power? If you’re diligently doing crosswords or sudoku, we’re sorry to be the bearers of bad news. It’s not helping you do anything other than learning how to be good at crosswords and Sudoku. There’s been an explosion in braintraining apps and websites in recent years – Lumosity alone has 75 million users – but there’s little scientific evidence they work. According to the latest research, keeping your brain agile isn’t about doing the same puzzles or games each day. The secret to boosting your brain power is novelty. Dr Jared Cooney Horvath is the author of the new book Stop Talking, Start Influencing, in which he outlines 12 scientific principles that explain how people learn and remember. A neuroscientist with a focus on human learning, memory and brain stimulation, he has conducted research and lectured at top institutions around the world, including Harvard University. He is the director of the Science of Learning Group and NeuroEducation – two teams dedicated to bringing the latest in brain and behavioural research to education and business. Dr Horvath says the idea we can use external tools to boost our brain function isn’t supported by evidence. However, science does know a lot about the changes we can make in our lives to help our brains function optimally. By following certain

Why is tihs setnecne so esay to raed – and waht deos it tlel us abuot thkining? The reason you can read this jumbled sentence is due to the incredible predictive power of your brain. “Whenever you learn something new, you have to code it into your brain,” Dr Horvath says. “As you learn, the brain starts to form a prediction, so you devote less and less time to coding. We’re so good at reading, the brain can predict what should be read [as per the example above]. It is an automatic prediction process. “You can assume 80 to 85 per cent of the day, you’re not actually present, you’re simply running predictions on how things should be,” he says. “When it comes to learning and thinking, you have to realise if you want a really efficient brain and you want to lock a new skill or ability down – say you want
to learn to play poker or pool – you have to repeat and repeat and drill it enough so you can live in predictions better than anyone else. That’s what separates good chess players from average chess players.” Something else science teaches us about learning and memory is that cramming isn’t a good idea. If you have an exam coming up, you’re better off studying one hour per day for three days than doing one three-hour study session. Ever binge-watched a Netflix series? Chances are you won’t remember as much about each episode as if you’d spaced them out and watched one episode per day or per week. There’s a law of learning called spacing. If you spread out your learning, you will remember 70 per cent of information for six months longer. If you binge-watch a show, you will forget 80 per cent within 48 to 72 hours. But there’s a caveat: if you talk about that show and read about it afterwards, deeper memories will form. “If you want a deep memory, you have to do recall,” says Dr Horvath. “It’s not just
3 WAYS TO BOOST BRAIN POWER
“I am a strong advocate for adhering closely to what is sometimes called the Mediterranean diet,” Dr Medina tells My Weekly Preview. “Lots of fruits, lots of vegies, fish, nuts – and if there’s oil, make sure it comes from olives. Diets like these have been shown not only to improve vascular health, but also brain health. Specific positive effects have been noted on specific cognitive gadgets. The positive effects of the Mediterranean diet on working memory – something we used

boosters. “Not only do they force novelty – which is essentially what the brain runs on – but learning a new language or instrument changes concepts with which we use to translate the world.”
We all know exercise, sleep and stress management are essential for our brains to function well. But what else do we know? Here’s what Dr John Medina and Dr Jared Cooney Horvath have to say.
Eat a Mediterranean diet
about what you put in, but what you take back out.” Finally, when you’re learning something new, don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Error plays an important role in our learning and how we respond to it makes all the difference. “Take the idea of the coder versus the predictor,” says Dr Horvath. “An error is a discrepancy between your predictor and reality. In a jumbled sentence, there is a massive difference between the letters and what you can read. We make errors constantly, but our predictions are so strong that we never notice them. “Once you make an error that’s noticeable, the brain fires up and love it or hate it, you have to access your coder. You have to cognitively engage and in that moment is the definition of learning. “If you do something new and screw up, you then have to become hyperfocused. That is what you want.”
Connect with nature
to call short-term memory – is one example. But, like with so much brain research, we are only in the beginning stages of understanding what the effects [of food on cognition] might be.”
Learn an instrument or a language Dr Medina says formal music training improves intellectual skills in several cognitive domains: spatiotemporal skills, vocabulary, working memory and sensorymotor skills. Dr Horvath says learning music or a language as an adult can be great brain
“The data is just starting to come out on this,” Dr Horvath says. “The more green time, the better function across the board. Your environment, especially if it’s nature-based, doesn’t actually make you a better learner, but it puts you in a better position to do the learning and thinking elsewhere. The prominent theories have to do with movement and oxygenation. When you’re indoors and especially on a screen, you have a narrow focus. That broadens out in nature, which sends the brain into a low theta-alpha level and cleans it up, slows it down and everything gets back on the same page so when you go back to hardcore learning, everything is relaxed and calm.”
DEBUNKING BRAIN MYTHS • Playing video games dumbs you down Research shows people who regularly play video games perform better in short-term memory and reasoning tests. Dr Horvath says there is some evidence that the sustained attention gained from playing video games could help around 10 per cent of children with ADHD to better pay attention in class. • You only use 10 per cent of your brain PET and MRI scans show that any mentally complex activity uses many areas of the brain and over a day, the whole brain gets a workout. • Alcohol kills brain cells If you were killing brain cells every time you cracked a coldie, you’d notice some major side effects. Alcohol does have a significant effect on your brain and body, but brain damage isn’t a given, unless you drink yourself into a coma. • Women are better multitaskers than men You can do only one focused task at a time – regardless of your gender. Dr Horvath says neither men nor women can multitask when it comes to tasks that require focused attention, like driving and talking on the phone. If you do this, your driving will be on autopilot. He says after about age 75 or 80, even walking and talking at the same time gets more difficult. • Brain games make you smarter There is little research to support this. Most scientists say the only thing brain games make you better at is playing brain games. • PowerPoint presentations are fun Not if they contain words. We can’t listen to someone talk and read their slides at the same time. One simple picture per point is okay, but use graphs and charts and you’ll lose your audience. In addition, most people can pay attention for only 10 minutes. At that point, you need to grab their attention with a joke or a picture of a fluffy kitten, before they zone out.

LET’S GO SURFING, LADIES There’s a new wave of surfers – and they are keen to hit the water. WORDS: Melissa Woods, AAP.
14 My Weekly Preview | January 18, 2019
14/01/2019 2:54:17 PM
he global popularity of surfing is set to rocket with its inclusion in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. But it’s also a growing sport for another unlikely sub-set – middle-aged women. They may not be striving to take on barrels on Hawaii’s North Shore, but many women say surfing isn’t the exclusive domain of the young and athletic. The girls who were once relegated to the beach to watch their boyfriends rip it up are now older women reclaiming the sport. Blake Johnston, who runs Cronulla Surfing Academy, says there’s a growing demand among middle-aged females for surfing lessons and surf safaris. Former world champion Pam Burridge, one of Australia’s first female professional surfers, also runs a surf-school for “likeminded” women on the New South Wales south coast. “We’ve got a pretty strong following of women,” Mr Johnston says.“There’s a bunch who have been with us for a few years who all took it up over the age of 40 and each year we do a safari overseas and take seven or eight of them.” Mr Johnston says the appeal for the older brigade is to embrace a healthy, outdoor activity that’s of little cost once they own a board. Women tend to leave their problems or
stresses on the beach, while the wave and weather conditions mean that, rather than a gym class, the experience is always different. But more than that, friendship is a big driver – one group of regulars has become known as the “mother-frothers”. “We’ve seen heaps of friendships,” Mr Johnston says. “[They] not only surf but have coffee and it’s really created a pretty cool little community. “They grew up in an era where surfing
“Going for a surf before work can mean I have a totally different day” was male dominated so I think it will continue to open up to other women who think, ‘it’s not that hard’.” Mr Johnston says the women don’t just learn how to surf, but also how to read waves and respect their fellow surfers, which means they are treated like any other board rider. Kristen, 48, grew up in the country and learnt to surf when she treated herself to
a safari in Bali as a 40th birthday present. Since then she’s been to other parts of Indonesia, the US, Sri Lanka and the Maldives as well as many trips down Australia’s coastline. She has even moved to a beachside suburb thanks to her passion for the sport. “It’s been life-changing – I’ve learnt a lot about myself,” she says. “My life now revolves around the water and I’ve made friends all over the world through surfing.” The sport keeps her body and her mind fit, she says. “Going for a surf before work can mean I have a totally different day.” Taking up the sport at an older age does present some challenges, namely it makes it more difficult to learn how to pop up (or stand up) on her board. “I’m no Stephanie Gilmore but I can read the water and my overall confidence has improved,” Kristen adds. “And I’m happy with that.”
expensive gym membership. 3.Think of the places you can go. There are magnificent coastlines right around the world with waves just waiting for you. 4. While you’re waiting for the right wave what else is there to do (apart from soak up nature) but chat – it’s a great way to make new friends.

FOUR REASONS TO TAKE UP SURFING
Keen to take up the waves but need a little encouragement? Try one of these surf local schools.
1. Surfing is great for improving your balance and physical strength. You use your core, arms, legs, lungs – your whole body when you’re paddling, standing up and falling off. 2. It’s practically free. Once you buy or borrow a board you can cancel that

40TH CELEBRATIONS FOR BELOVED MARKETS The Eumundi Markets began in 1979 when three marketeers decided to join forces and put on a farmers and artisan market with a firm ‘locally made’ policy. Their homegrown ethos is still going strong today, with the equivalent of the population of South Australia – that’s 1.6 million people – visiting the markets each year. The 40th birthday of the markets will be held in March to remember the remarkable growth that has occurred at this location. The very first market day was held at the CWA Hall, had three stalls, eight visitors and had a turnover of $30. To find out more about the birthday celebrations, check out eumundimarkets.com.au.

DATA SHOWS RECORD YEAR FOR COAST TOURISM
New data shows more Australians and overseas visitors stayed and spent more money on the Sunshine Coast over the past 12 months than ever before. The latest National Visitor Survey released last week showed a record 3.5 million domestic visitors travelled to the Coast to the year ending September 2018, generating record expenditure of $2.4 billion, a rise of more than 18.4 per cent. The International Visitor Survey was also released and showed international arrivals topping 319,000 and also breaking a record with visitors increasing by 8.5 per cent and spend increasing by 5.3 per cent, totalling $248.2 million. Visit Sunshine Coast CEO Simon Latchford says the result is a culmination of highly targeted and effective campaigns both in Australia and overseas to attract new visitors and encourage past visitors to return. “The performance out of New Zealand has been outstanding, along with continued growth from the American, Asian and European markets, and the fact that they are spending more reflects the diversity of attractions available across the Sunshine Coast,” he says. Mr Latchford says the popularity of events over the period is also a contributing factor to figures achieved. “With the support of Sunshine Coast Council, the major events calendar for the region has become stronger and more diversified, with domestic business events visitors growing by 5.5 per cent over the period as a result of the region winning an increased number of major conferences,” he says.
SUPPORT GROWS FOR PUBLIC REGISTER The Daniel Morcombe Foundation has thrown its support behind a nationally consistent Public Register of Child Sex Offenders. This National Register is recommended alongside a comprehensive approach to reducing reoffending and preventing child sexual abuse. Bruce and Denise Morcombe have advocated for the development of a public sex offender register in Australia, which they have referred to as Daniel’s Law. Mr Morcombe says the news Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has written to states and territories urging them to support his proposal for a national database of child sex offenders, is “music to my ears”.
It has been a fixture on bustling Brisbane Road for the past 22 years, but the Mooloolaba McDonalds closed its doors permanently on Monday in the lead-up to road upgrades. The Sunshine Coast Council acquired the premises as part of its plan to widen Brisbane Road to four lanes between Tuckers Creek Bridge and Venning Street with space to accommodate future light rail, in multiple stages over several years. This upgrade includes widening Walan Street. Demolition for the first stage of work, a Naroo Street extension to Muraban Street, will start in March, with construction scheduled to start in mid-2019. The Walan Street widening and Naroo Court intersection works will start in late 2019.

LEO SAYER’S TIMELESS APPEAL Few artists can say they’ve hit the heights of worldwide success and are still drawing crowds after 40 years in front of the microphone. But at the age of 70, Leo Sayer isn’t slowing down. He’s still writing, still singing – and still dancing. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
IMAGE: MICHAEL PALMER
eo Sayer may be a music legend with a career spanning four decades, but he still has something to prove. At the age of 70, he’s still writing, still performing and still loving every minute of it. The Grammy-award winner, who is bringing his worldwide birthday tour Still A Boy to the Sunshine Coast on February 16, has the same drive he had as a young British lad with number one singles on both sides of the Atlantic. “I’ve been working on a new album and I’ve called it Selfie, because I made it totally myself,” he laughs. “I believe the next album is the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m always piling up my albums in my studio and saying, what can I do better?” Mr Sayer appears ageless. It could have something to do with his boyish charm and trademark mop of curls. But it’s also a result of his youthful attitude. He’s not stuck in the past, saying he’s influenced by today’s music and tries to bring it into his new work. “A lot of what the new artists are doing is very inspiring,” he says. “I love listening to new acts and hearing how they do things. The whole industry is always looking backwards for clues about how to move forward. The way it changes is almost in a retrofit fashion. “You have an artist like Lenny Kravitz, who really goes back to move forward. He’s echoing his heroes. In this business, we are always echoing golden times and trying to bring that back. We want every gig to be like Woodstock and every record to be like The Beatles’ White Album. The bar has been set – let’s put it like that.” When he considers his place in today’s music industry, he says he’s in a unique position. He is that rare musician who has legions of fans around the globe, yet doesn’t have to support a massive entourage, like the Taylor Swifts and Ed Sheerans of the world. He has the freedom to create his own music without worrying about keeping a huge show on the road. “A lot of artists that are right at the top, it’s part of a money-making procedure for a lot of people around them. I’m unusual because I’m still making music for me. I don’t have anybody I’m partnering with who’s desperate to make money out of me to keep them alive, so I’m a very small cottage industry. That’s very different to how the rest of the
industry works.” When he first started out, however, it was all about pleasing radio DJs, who could make or break an artist. “It was good in our day, it was tough and competitive and radio wouldn’t play it unless radio liked it. The Beatles and the Beach Boys were always making records for radio. Brian Wilson would try and write classics just so they would be played on radio. We were channelling all our efforts to please someone’s
else’s criteria and that’s not bad. All hip-hop artists are doing is trying to get played in clubs. It’s the same filter. If their record is weird and whacky, it ain’t going to get played by the DJ. It’s the same screening process you have to go through and often it results in one hit wonders.” A one hit wonder, Mr Sayer is not. He launched his career in the UK in the early ’70s and had hit singles in both the UK and US simultaneously. He won a Grammy Award for best rhythm and blues song for his 1977 hit, You Make Me Feel Like Dancing – a perennial favourite that makes party playlists to this day – and has released 23 albums. For an iconic pop star who has outlasted most of his contemporaries, Mr Sayer is incredibly down-to-earth and possibly the friendliest bloke you’ll ever meet. This has gone down well here in Australia, his adopted home. He moved here in 2005 and became an Australian citizen in 2009. Living here, he says, has revitalised him after a string of personal and professional difficulties, which he doesn’t dwell on. Mr Sayer will be performing some new material in his show, but knows it’s the old hits his fans want to hear – songs like You Make Me Feel Like Dancing, The Show Must Go On, Moonlighting, More Than I Can Say and his own personal favourite, Giving It All Away. “It’s from my album Just A Boy and it’s really my theme song. I’m writing a book about my life, which will also be called Just A Boy. When I perform Giving It All Away, it’s very magical. The song is like a coming of age and looking back at your life. “There is this kind of insecurity in the lyric and maybe the feeling you’re still determined to prove yourself. I think that’s something that’s undying. That drive I have, I guess has never really died. “I’m not going through the motions in this; I’m trying to do it even better. I’ve got this ambition that drives me on. I still need to prove who I am. It’s not enough to relax with the name on the marquee. The biggest danger of people my age is switching off. I’m determined not to do that.”
Leo Sayer will perform at Venue 114 on Saturday, February 16. For more information visit scvenuesandevents.com.au.

BEACH RITUALS & BLUE BOTTLES
HOW TO FIND TRUE MEANING
Sami Muirhead’s kids experience the painful rite of passage every Australian beachgoer must – being stung by blue bottles.
Leigh Robshaw says your grandma was right: it’s important to make the best of bad situations. In fact, it’s the most powerful thing we can do.
nd just like that it is back to school. The summer of 2019 will be remembered in our family as the holiday of the awakening. My kids will probably always remember this holiday haze because they lost their innocence when it comes to the sea. They were not dumped by a wave. They did not get sea lice all over their legs. They did not lose their togs in an undignified tussle with Mother Nature as they tried to cover their private parts (I personally did lose that battle). They were stung by blue bottles. There are billions of those oh-so-pretty blue bottles around our local beaches. Okay, the actual number is technically not billions. But last weekend alone, 460 people were stung on Sunshine Coast beaches with a few patients suffering anaphylactic shock. We have swarms of the little devils on our shorelines thanks to tides and wind direction. My kids stepped on them at Mooloolaba. The lifesaver who helped us was a superhero to my kids, who thankfully had mild stings and were treated with warm water and ice. And ice-cream. And hugs. Of course, my poor babies thought the world was ending as they shrieked with pain and jumped about on one leg. I think the blue bottles were dead, as my kids were not left with those red scars I keep seeing documented on social media by other not so fortunate victims. Remember when we were kids, we were told to pour vinegar on stings? Then it
changed to hot water. Then for a time the remedy was urine. I swear I am telling the truth – we were told your own wee was the best cure. Well now that cure is about as popular as white bread and Donald Trump. But I am thankful my kids were not hurt badly and now they understand and respect another unwritten rule of living in paradise. Each region in Australia has its own set of rules formed around our lifestyles. I was taught the same rule of not going near bluebottles when I was about their age growing up on the Coast. My mum and my siblings spent many a sunset perched on the
“Of course, my poor babies thought the world was ending…” rocks at Rainbow Beach watching cars fly around the point from Double Island hoping a freak wave would not wash them away. There is nothing more ‘Queensland’ to me now than sitting on those rocks with a beer in one hand and a phone in the other to film the car cowboys who get stuck on the rocks. But back to the jellyfish. Let’s not tell my kids that Irukandji jellyfish are bobbing around a few hours up north, as my brood may never swim again. Thanks summer of 2019, despite the blue bottle education, you were a total darling.

magine having your life controlled by someone else, under the constant threat of death, because you were born female. The story of Rahaf Alqunun’s escape from her allegedly abusive family in Saudia Arabia has captured worldwide attention, and rightly so. The 18-year-old fled to Thailand and locked herself in an airport hotel room, tweeting about her plight. She feared for her life if her father were to find her, saying her family had threatened to kill her over the most trivial things. Amazingly, the world listened and Canada granted her asylum. Ms Alqunun’s savvy use of social media has highlighted the human rights abuses of Saudia Arabia, with its male guardianship system. Ms Alqunun was lucky. Many other women in Saudia Arabia have not been. Ms Alqunun’s brave actions, it is believed, could now spark a revolution in Saudia Arabia. The human spirit is astounding. It can prevail under the most extreme circumstances. Ms Alqunun’s case came to light just as I finished reading the incredible book, Man’s Search for Meaning, by Viktor Frankl. This work should be required reading in every high school, for its message is one every one of us should grasp. It prescribes a solution to the “existential vacuum”, which he says is the mass neurosis of the present time. That is, many of us lack meaning in our lives. We can find meaning through creating something of value, performing a meaningful deed, experiencing
love or – he says most importantly – behaving with dignity in the face of difficulty. Imprisoned in four concentration camps during WWII, Dr Frankl gained profound realisations about humanity. In the worst of circumstances, we can either behave like “swine” or “saints”. The way we bear suffering – a given in life – is what allows us to transcend any hardship and through this, we find true meaning and purpose. He writes: “Even the helpless victim of a hopeless situation, facing a fate he cannot change, may rise above himself, may grow beyond himself, and by doing so change himself. He may turn a personal tragedy into a triumph.” Dr Frankl said “the people held in highest esteem are neither the great artists nor the great scientists, neither the great statesmen nor the great sports figures, but those who master a hard lot with their heads held high.” It calls to mind the extraordinary work of Bruce and Denise Morcombe, who turned tragedy into triumph after the loss of their son Daniel, by dedicating themselves forevermore to the safety of all children. Rahaf Alqunun chose, for herself, the high road. She made a bid for freedom and in doing so, the world has been given a wake-up call. A call to be decent, to stand up for what’s right. In the words of Dr Frankl: “For the world is in a bad state, but everything will become still worse unless each of us does his best.”

appy hour at Halcyon Lakeside has become much more than discounted drinks and a chance to socialise – it is also the retirement village’s contribution to one of the Sunshine Coast’s largest charities. Recycling technology supplier Envirobank offers a 10-cent refund for every eligible container recycled, which is why Coast health foundation Wishlist is now asking for donations of eligible recyclable containers. Although it is only new, Wishlist’s Cash for Containers initiative has already received strong support from local businesses and the wider community. Halcyon Lakeside’s former bar manager Jan Van den Adel, who has been a volunteer at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for two years, has already delivered several bags of bottles and cans collected from the over-50s resort. Mr Van den Adel heard about the fundraising drive through the hospital and thought it was an easy way to support the organisation.“It only took one day to collect all the bottles and cans I donated to Wishlist,” he says. Ten cents may seem inconsequential,

but with more people like Mr Van den Adel, this recycling effort could amount to something substantial for Wishlist, assisting the organisation to fund the plethora of health initiatives it supports each year. Wishlist philanthropic manager Hans de Koning says the foundation will start receiving regular recycling donations from Sunshine Toyota, Landmark Resort, Quick Corp, Best Western Plus Lake Kawana, Nationwide Mobility Vehicles and Just Better Care Sunshine Coast, and the call is out to any community group, school or business
to get on board. “It’s a great way to support the local health service and minimise the amount of recyclable waste that would otherwise end up in landfill or in our waterways. It’s a win-win,” he says. As one of Wishlist’s corporate partners since 2015, Best Western Plus Lake Kawana Hotel general manager John Örning says donating the cans and bottles from the hotel’s Wildflower restaurant and what guests leave in their hotel rooms to the Cash for Containers initiative is “a great way to give without giving”.
“We already produce a lot of cans and bottles and before it all went in the big recycling bin,” he says. “Now we could either collect ourselves and get the money or donate it. We did choose the latter – since we believe that Wishlist do important work for the region and we help the environment at the same time. “It’s never a pleasant experience needing to visit a hospital. We see it first hand since many of our guests are patients or relatives to patients or [hospital] staff. [Wishlist] do great and very important work. They make sure that health-care staff on the Sunshine Coast get better equipment and can treat patients better. And they make life a bit easier for patients and their families.” Most drink containers between 150 millilitres and three litres can be returned for a refund under Queensland’s container deposit scheme. Containers should be empty, uncrushed, lid-free and display the refund marking for Queensland.
Anyone wishing to get involved can contact Hans de Koning email@example.com or on 0418 274 318.

CARVING OUT A BRIGHT FUTURE At just 12 years old, Caloundra student and skateboard champion Haylie Powell welll is already living the dream. WORDS: Roxann Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.
rmed with her skateboard, Haylie Powell enjoyed a rock star’s welcome at the pop-up skate ramp constructed at Stockland Caloundra for its school holiday program last week. The 12-year-old Mooloolah Valley resident is a skating prodigy who claimed the inaugural Women’s Queensland Street Skateboarding Champion title in September last year. The youngster was pitted against competitors twice her age and height, but emerged victorious, notching up another win on her growing list of achievements since she started competing six years ago. In fact, she was such a regular on the podium in the under 12s category that she was offered the chance to move up to the open women’s division, a challenge which she took head-on, placing third in her first event in Brisbane. Haylie says a huge highlight was having a shot at qualifying in Sydney for an X Games wildcard spot in October last year, but she didn’t make the cut. “It was a great experience,” she says. “Everything was so big. When you visualise it in your mind, it’s nice and small, but then it’s so big in real life. “I try to push myself; it can be scary… most of the time it’s scary. But I always try new tricks and new obstacles.” She revelled in competing alongside her idols Hayley Wilson, Liv Lovelace and Kat Williams, although admits they “keep beating me”. The Caloundra State High School student says skating is all she wants to do and even a broken arm last year didn’t
phase her determination. She was back on her board within a week, cast and all. Mum Heidi says Haylie lives and d breathes the sport and when she is not on her board, she is watching skating movies or videos on YouTube, and even plays with Tech Decks (miniature skateboards you use to practise tricks) when she is unable to do either of the above. Juggling school work with travel around the country,
become a necessity for Haylie and now the world, has becom as she strives to reach the heig heights of a professional skating career. In 2019 she will jet off to the US to compete in the Exposure Skate and Hot Wheels Junior Series with Heidi or dad Peter in tow. Haylie credits her dad as the inspirations behind and uncle a sport, citing fond memories of her entering the sport riding on her uncle’s long board as one of her first experiences of being on a skateboard. board and used it in my first “I had an old boa competition when I was six and I came second new deck,” she recalls. and won a brand ne “That’s how I got my first board. I used my trucks until I got some from old hardware and tr a skate shop. I was sso proud that I’d done it all with no help.” dedication to the sport, Recognising her d Haylie’s parents have constructed a skate park in with rails, ledges, kickers, a their front yard, complete w bank and quarter pipe. “It means that when they ccan’t take me out somewhere, I can skate at home,” Haylie says proudly. While she is already living her dream, Haylie takes time to support others by sharing her vibrant energy and encouraging those trying out skating for the first time or setting out to improve their skills.

MERCEDES-BENZ SUNSHINE COAST PROMOTION
The value of trust and transparency Helping customers into their dream cars is all in a day’s work for Debbie Gorsch. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw. The first thing you notice about Debbie Gorsch is her charming Scottish accent. She’s been living in Australia for 18 years, but the accent has stayed strong. The second thing you notice is how she lights up when she talks about her job as Business Manager with Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast. “I love my job,” she says. “I’m very lucky to be honest. I count myself very fortunate that I work for such an amazing company and an amazing team of people every single day. I love being in finance and I love helping people get their dream car.” Debbie was offered a traineeship at MercedesBenz Noosa 12 years ago and found the role suited her perfectly. She has worked in the luxury car industry ever since, joining the Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast team just over a year ago. She’s definitely noticed some changes with the brand over the past decade. “The range is getting much bigger now and I’m noticing there are now a lot of younger buyers,” she says. “Some of the models are targeted to a younger market and are more affordable, especially compared to when I started 12 years ago.” As Business Manager, Debbie’s role is to help clients with finance applications, insurance and
warranties, helping them understand the benefits and services available to them as Mercedes-Benz customers. She deals with a diverse clientele on a daily basis and her natural warmth and integrity shine through with everyone she meets – not to mention her love for the brand. “I think you’ve got to be passionate about what you do in this role,” she says. “You need to be outgoing and confident in your ability to exceed customer expectations, especially in the prestige car market. You’re dealing with individuals of a very diverse background and in order to do so well, you must have very strong values and integrity. These people are used to dealing with some pretty serious businesses, so if you’re going to offer them finance, they need to believe and trust that you are the best at what you do. “The most important thing is to be transparent. Every customer is different and every customer needs something different. You need to adapt to their personalities, ensuring they know all the services we offer. I work face to face with every single one of our clients, regardless of how they finance their vehicle. With a major purchase like a Mercedes-Benz, it’s important
Debbie Gorsch, Business Manager at Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast
to get the right advice and I am able to offer them that peace of mind.”
With so much experience and knowledge under her belt, Debbie is thrilled to be mentoring a member of the team in a traineeship. Roarke Black has been with Mercedes-Benz Sunshine Coast for five years. He started out as a Parts Apprentice, moved into the Concierge roll at the front desk and then onto the role of Service Advisor and is now an Assistant Business Manager. “It’s absolutely brilliant because Roarke has been with Mercedes-Benz since he was 18 and he’s so committed to the brand,” Debbie says. “He wants to be associated with the brand for his whole career. He had a very specific goal to be in finance within five years, and now he’s met that goal. “It takes six to 12 months to complete the traineeship,” Debbie says. “Roarke is like my shadow for the majority of my day. He’ll sit with my clients and we meet every morning and afternoon, spending a certain amount of time going though his modules and getting him accredited. “I remember how excited I was when I did my traineeship and I can see the same excitement in him. It’s wonderful to be sharing the opportunity I was given all that time ago. To see another Business Manager flourish is very rewarding.”

Ms Brown and her band performed this show on the Sunshine Coast in October last year to a sell-out crowd, with a waiting list for tickets. Due to popular demand, they are bringing a repeat performance to The Bison Bar, Nambour on February 2. “I fell in love with Sister Rosetta Tharpe a few years ago,” Robyn says. “She’s such a powerhouse of a woman, rocking away on her guitar but never compromising her message.” Tickets to the February 2 show at 3.30pm are $20 and are available from stickytickets.com.au/79639.

QUICK BEEF STIR-FRY Serves 4. Add extra vegies for a bigger serving size. INGREDIENTS Marinade • 500g beef stir-fry strips • 2 garlic cloves • 3cm knob of ginger, diced • 1 tbsp soy sauce • ½ orange, juiced • Pinch of chilli flakes • Splash of sesame oil
METHOD Mix the beef and other marinade ingredients together and allow to marinate in a sealed container until ready. Cover the rice noodles with boiling water and set aside. Add the pine nuts and sesame seeds to a medium hot pan and toast for a few minutes, till golden. Set aside. Drain the softened noodles and stir through a drop of sesame oil before setting aside. Turn up the heat on the pan and when hot, add the marinated beef. Toss to cook quickly for a few minutes. Before it’s completely cooked add the bok choy and capsicums and toss through. Squeeze over the extra orange juice. Season with salt and pepper before serving with the noodles, nuts, seeds and coriander if preferred.
IMAGE: DANEYL GREEN
Stir fry • 200g rice noodles • 2 tbsp pine nuts and sesame seeds • 2 bunches of bok choy, sliced lengthways • 2 red capsicums, sliced • Juice from the other orange half
COOKING TIP Sunshine Coast food blogger Daneyl Green says her recipe is a simple and tasty dish for busy weeknights. “It doesn’t have a thousand ingredients and can be ready and on the table in 15 minutes. I love using orange juice in my stir-fries and change it up from the traditional lemon or lime – it’s a little sweeter and adds a different flavour.”
The recipe comes from her ebook Mix Taste Eat: Delicious Nutritious Everyday Meals, which can be purchased at mixtasteeat.com.

MORE THAN 200,000 NOW BEING SUPPORTED THROUGH THE NDIS
WHAT’S HAPPENING IN QUEENSLAND?
ore than 200,000 Australians are now being supported through the National Disability Insurance Scheme, with almost all participants saying their experience has
been positive. The latest quarterly data on the NDIS shows 93 per cent of participants rated their experience as good or very good. That’s a five per cent boost from the previous three months. Almost one third of people in the scheme are receiving disability support for the first time, the figures show. The NDIS has also helped 91 per cent of its young participants who haven’t yet gone to school to better communicate their needs, according to their parents or carers. The data proves efforts to improve the scheme have
been paying off, Social Services Minister Paul Fletcher says. “Rolling out the NDIS is a complex and difficult task but these figures show we’re on track and improving the experience for participants, carers and families,” he says. “The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) has been working hard to reform the participant pathway and that’s coming through.” The number of NDIS participants grew by 14 per cent between the start of July and end of September 2018, bringing the total number to 208,793. There are now 17,925 providers registered to deliver support through the scheme. “Participants now have more choice than ever before,” NDIA chief executive Robert De Luca says. About 460,000 people with a disability are expected to be supported through the scheme by 2020-21 when it the rollout is complete. Source: AAP
All eligible Queenslanders now have access to the NDIS, with the scheme rolling out in the last remaining regions in Queensland – Moreton Bay and the Sunshine Coast – on January 1, 2019. More than 25,000 Queenslanders are already accessing the NDIS, with 6800 of those receiving support for the first time. Minister for Families and Social Services, Paul Fletcher, says the final rollout in Queensland allows the NDIS to provide support to all eligible people with disability in the state. “I am pleased to announce the NDIS is now available to all eligible Queenslanders,” Mr Fletcher says. “The NDIS is already empowering more than 200,000 Australians to have choice and control in how they live their lives. The final rollout in Queensland will ensure people with disability have the support they need to achieve their goals.” Assistant Minister for Social Services, Housing and Disability Services, Sarah Henderson, says the rollout in Queensland is an important milestone for the scheme. “Today marks an important step for the NDIS, as we can now provide opportunities for people with disability across all of Queensland,” Ms Henderson says. “The NDIS is life-changing and this milestone ensures all eligible Queenslanders now have access to reasonable and necessary supports to ensure they can engage with and contribute to their communities.” The NDIS is expected to create more than 12,900 jobs and inject an additional $2.5 billion into the Queensland economy. Once fully implemented, the NDIS is estimated to support about 91,000 people with disability in Queensland and about 460,000 people nationally.

NDIS HOUSING PROVIDES HUGE PROPERTY INVESTMENT POTENTIAL help those with disabilities and incentivise private investors through excellent returns” Mr Knights says. “Frankly, I’ve never seen anything like it in all my years in the industry.” Mr Knights cited a 2017 Productivity Commission report which showed the NDIS will support around 475,000 people at a cost of $22 billion in its first year. He says the benefits will be far reaching, with boosts across the construction, home services, maintenance and allied health industries a certain flow-on. “It has the potential to create hundreds of thousands of jobs nationally.” Mr Knights says prospects for the scheme’s success look excellent, with the NDIS reporting that around 460,000
“Frankly, I’ve never seen anything like it in all my years in the industry…”
Federal Government established initiative to assist people with disabilities into high-quality housing has created an opportunity for investors to earn excellent returns while positively reshaping communities, according to a national property strategist. Horizon Property Alliance believes the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) program, which will see participants rehoused in privately established and high-quality specialist accommodation, could be a win for all stakeholders. “The NDIS is a world-first program where everyone seems to come out ahead,” says Michael Knights, managing director of Horizon Property Alliance. “As part of its brief, the NDIS will cover the cost of accommodation and ongoing care for participants to enter specialised housing, and this provides an opportunity for mum-and-dad property investors and astute business owners to be part of the program.”
Get the most out of your NDIS
Mr Knights says private investors participate by aligning themselves with an accredited care provider who helps them establish specialist housing for those with severe disabilities that need 24-hour care. “We are aware of a variety of models available to investors who want to be part of the scheme, but all revolve around establishing a bespoke home for three-to-five participants,” he says “The investor-owner then grants the care provider permission to operate in the home for a pre-determined rental amount and, in many cases, a share of the care business’s profits.” Mr Knights says as well as the benefits in this particular program that will help those with severe disabilities into better quality, community-integrated housing, the potential for solid returns for investors were extraordinarily good by any measure. “It’s an incredible, government funded initiative to both

Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability will access its services. “We’re aware the NDIS already has a very large list of participants ready to go as part of their housing initiative,” he says. Despite the scheme being announced back in 2017, Mr Knights says it’s taken until recently to get the required checks and balances in order. Mr Knights says the government-funded payments would give investors security of income. “That said, there are always risks when investing. In this instance, you need to ensure you’re aligned with a highquality care provider,” he says. “Also, while vacancies are a normal risk for property investors, the government will provide a three-month rental guarantee when rooms become vacant. Given the waiting list that currently exists, however, we don’t envisage vacancies being a major downside. “The only other risk seem to be future changes in government policy, but we believe the program’s success will become apparent in the short-term.”

Support Coordination starts here
Is your Support Coordinator getting the most from your NDIS Plan? The NDIS undoubtedly changes the way disability services are funded and delivered across Australia, however it can be overwhelming for so many individuals and their families. Your Service Provider should eliminate this feeling of stress and ease your mind. The NDIS is overseen by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), and it focuses on providing funding and care to a person living with a disability that has aﬀect across their whole life. Many Australians living with a disability are able to access more services than ever before, since the NDIA pledged that no one will be worse oﬀ under this new scheme. After setting your goals, further assistance and support is required to help you achieve these goals. Through discussion and pre-planning with you, your Service Provider can help you discover what services will help you in achieving your goals set in the NDIS plan.

JOBLESS RATE OF DISABLED AUSSIES IN FOCUS
he Federal Government is backing the work of the NDIS Participant Employment Taskforce with $19.9 million of grants for projects to boost employment for Australians with a disability. Minister for Families and Social Services, Paul Fletcher, and Assistant Minister for Social Services, Housing and Disability Services, Sarah Henderson have announced that an open, competitive grant process will launch early in 2019. â€œThe Economic Participation grants will back innovative proposals that build the capacity of people with disability to
participate in work,â€? Mr Fletcher says. â€œThey will also support employers to create opportunities for people with disability.â€? Mr Fletcher says the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Participant Employment Taskforce has had a productive first meeting and is focusing on initiatives to quickly address concerns raised by the disability sector. â€œThese will include changes to prioritise employment conversations in NDIS planning processes and addressing the delays some people face between finding a job and getting employment supports in their NDIS plan,â€? Mr Fletcher says. â€œIn consultation with the sector the Taskforceâ€™s Terms of Reference have been drafted and these will be publicly released shortly on the Department of Social Services website.â€? Assistant Minister Henderson says another outcome from the Taskforceâ€™s first meeting was for the next round of NDIS Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) grants to focus on creating opportunities for economic participation. â€œWe hope to see some creative and
exciting proposals come forward through these grants including new and innovative ideas which complement Governmentâ€™s established disability employment supports,â€? Ms Henderson says. â€œThis could include investing in volunteering as a pathway to employment, or activities which may assist people with a disability to pursue entrepreneurial routes to employment.â€? Ms Henderson says the ILC grants program was a fundamental aspect of the NDIS, designed to empower people with disability to access their community and achieve their goals, which may include employment. â€œAn open, competitive grant round focused on improving the economic participation of people with disability will help to build the aspirations, confidence, skills and prospects of people with disability and maximise their work opportunities,â€? Ms Henderson says. The Federal Government has already invested $82.7 million over the last two years in ILC funding to support organisations to deliver activities that promote the inclusion of people with disability.
LOOKING FOR A NEW JOB? New jobs are set to become available on the Sunshine Coast as the NDIS swings into action. The NDIA (National Disability Insurance Agency) needs dedicated and motivated people to help the NDIS become a success. Some of these jobs require qualifications, while others will only require good communication skills and a contemporary attitude towards disability. Roles may become available in accounting, administration, communication and marketing, human resources, ICT, project management , service delivery and area coordination. You can register your interest for a job with the NDIA at ndiajobs.nga.net.au.

INTERVENING EARLY TO HELP KIDS THE TYPES OF SUPPORTS THE NDIS MIGHT FUND FOR YOUR CHILD INCLUDE • support for daily living activities like getting dressed and eating • transport so that your child can take part in community or social activities, or go to school • therapeutic support including behaviour support • modifications to your home, including design and construction • equipment or technology to help your child • modifications to your car.
GENERALLY, THE NDIS WON’T FUND SUPPORT THAT:
he Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) approach is available to all children from birth to six with a developmental delay or disability in line with the rollout of the NDIS. Children aged six and under don’t need a diagnosis of disability to benefit from the NDIS. On the Sunshine Coast, BUSHKids is the main contact point for parents wanting to access appropriate supports for their children under the NDIS. As an Early Childhood Partner, BUSHkids supports families of children with developmental delay and provides the support needed to improve the child’s development. Where a child requires more intensive early intervention supports, BUSHkids staff work with the family to develop an NDIS plan to access the support funding the child needs on a more long-term basis.
• isn’t related to your child’s disability • duplicates other support already funded by mainstream services like the education or health systems • is part of day-to-day living costs that aren’t related to your child’s support needs • is likely to cause harm to your child or pose a risk to others. For example, the NDIS will fund early interventions like speech therapy or physiotherapy. But it won’t fund inclusion support for kindergartens or modifications to preschool buildings, because these are the responsibility of the early childhood education system. For school-age children the NDIS will fund support that enables a child to go to school, like help with self-care at school, specialist transport or a hearing aid. But it won’t fund teachers or learning-specific aids like computers, because these are the responsibility of the education system.
CHATTER-BOXES SPEECH PATHOLOGY Chatter-boxes Speech Pathology Services has been in operation for 18 years and has partnered with many Sunshine Coast families to help kids reach their potential. Chatter-boxes is a registered NDIS provider and can now support its Sunshine Coast clients through the scheme.

POWER OF FUNDRAISING BY RETIREES
MAJOR DECLINE IN AUSTRALIAN FLU DEATHS IN 2018
s part of a recent project to identify the ‘good sports’ living in its Retirement Living villages, Lendlease created a means for its communities to nominate their exceptional neighbours. Hundreds of nominations were collected outlining wonderful stories of selflessness, kindness, camaraderie and community. All these people are contributing to a collaborative happy lifestyle for their communities. One such community member is Gerald Avice. An exceptionally dedicated fundraiser for Solaris Cancer Care for four years, Mr Avice has personally raised more than $337,000 to help support individuals and their families in support of cancer treatment and wellbeing. This monumental task was achieved via the solo act of collecting money at various locations throughout his community, sharing his good humour and charm. Residents in his retirement village refer to Mr Avice as “the cheerful face you’re always happy to see around the village” and “the helping hand that’s always there for everyone”.
A keen sportsman, Mr Avice is an active member of the bowls team and walking group, and regularly enjoys a game of table tennis, pool and darts with other residents of Timberside Villas. He is a good sport, in every sense of the word. Another Lendlease resident and good sport, Bob Chanter brings with him a lifetime of community service as a teacher and Country Fire Association stalwart. He is a long-time volunteer at the Monbulk fire brigade, a police register volunteer and first aid volunteer. Lendlease Retirement Village residents are making significant contributions to their communities across Australia with their dedication and time volunteering for charities. Proving retirement doesn’t mean slowing down, village residents have alone raised thousands of dollars across the country in charitable funds.

The flu killed far fewer Australians last year than it did in 2017, as the number of cases of the infection reported fell dramatically. The decline between the two years is a timely reminder that vaccinations work, according to Health Minister Greg Hunt. There were 73 deaths from influenza in the latest season, which peaked in early September. That compared to 1137 deaths from the respiratory illness in 2017, the worst season in almost a decade. In total, 52,000 cases of the flu were reported in 2018, compared with nearly 250,000 cases in the same period in 2017. Mr Hunt says the 2017 season spurred the Federal Government to provide enhanced vaccines for the elderly. More than 3.4 million extra doses were made available, allowing more than 85 per cent of people aged 65 and older to be protected. Unprecedented demand for vaccines early in 2018 also prompted the government to secure an extra 1.3 million doses. They were made available through the National Immunisation Program, state programs and the private market. “The action our government took means more families have been spared the tragedy of losing someone they love because of this preventable, infectious disease,” Mr Hunt says. - AAP

like Nature’s Edge Buderim, you can participate in group exercise, go swimming and meet some great people while you’re at it. The award-winning $4 million leisure centre features a 20-metre heated swimming pool, expansive rainforest deck and a jam-packed social calendar full of fun events.
3. GO SWIMMING If you haven’t taken the plunge lately, you might want to look at some of the crystal-clear health benefits. Swimming is a fun and gentle form of exercise that strengthens your muscles, increases your lung capacity, alleviates stress and improves flexibility.

REPORT HIGHLIGHTS THE NEEDS OF OLDER AUSTRALIANS
FRIENDSHIPS AND LIFESTYLE AWAIT
John Naughton, Marie Michael, Colleen & Graham Anderson
he Sunshine Coast is spoilt for choice when it comes to retirement communities. From the coastline to the hinterland, villages are attracting retirees seeking a relaxed lifestyle in our coastal region. Retirees Marie Michael and John Naughton moved to Sundale Coolum Beach in 2014 and say they haven’t looked back. “We wanted a new lifestyle and we got that and more,” says Ms Michael. “Highlights certainly come to mind – a leisurely stroll around the village on a lovely pathway which follows Stumers Creek, residents’ gardens blooming, remnant bush on either side of Stumers, a myriad of bird calls; it is a little bit country here. “Not only did we find an active and social community, expansive village grounds and gardens, and a lovely new home, but we also found some friends for life.
“We have the best lifestyle living here. A comfortable home to enjoy when we’re home and nothing to worry about when we take off on our travels around Australia.” Sundale Coolum Beach focuses on friendship and fun with regular weekly outings and activities – including a fortnightly happy hour at the village’s aptly named community clubhouse, The Hub. “Some of our friends outside of the village think that they should wait until they’re older to move into retirement living, but we think doing it earlier is better,” Ms Michael says. “We’ve been able to manage the physical move more easily and it means that our future will be enjoyable and we can really embrace our new lifestyle.”

The Council on the Ageing (COTA) Queensland is calling for greater focus on older people’s health and wellbeing, in response to a new landmark national report launched in Canberra. The State of the (Older) Nation 2018 report is the most comprehensive national study ever undertaken to seek the views of Australians aged over 50. COTA Queensland chief executive Mark Tucker-Evans says the report highlights the need for older people to not only be valued but to feel valued. Support systems need to be in place for those who are at risk or are vulnerable, and to have adequate access to health and mental health services in Queensland. “While the report shows that a high percentage of people rated their quality of life highly, seven per cent rated their lives as mediocre citing health, financial, and negative emotional issues as the top three contributors,” Mr Tucker-Evans says. Today most Queenslanders can expect to live into their 80s and some, beyond. Longer life provides the opportunity to reconsider not only what older age might be but how our whole lives might unfold. Yet the extent of the opportunities that arise from these extra years of life will be very heavily dependent on one key factor: health. “If people are experiencing these years in good health, their ability to do things that matter to them will be little different from that of a younger person,” Mr TuckerEvans says. “If these added years are dominated by decreases in physical or mental capacity, the implications for older people and for society are much more negative.” Key findings in the report of relevance to Queensland are: • The majority of older Australians feel
younger than their current age, with more than half feeling at least 10 years younger. • Women feel 12 years younger than their actual age, whereas men feel 10 years younger on average. • On average, those aged 80-89 feel 13 years younger than their age. • Of survey participants, 78 per cent rated their quality of life highly, at seven or more out of 10, including a quarter who feel particularly positive (26 per cent rated their quality of life a nine or 10). • Just over one in five rated their quality of life at the mediocre or poor end of the scale. COTA is seeking a commitment from all political parties to develop a comprehensive long-term national strategy to address the needs of older Australians – including raising rent assistance by 40 per cent; taking a whole-of-government approach to budget funding; and reducing ageism, particularly age discrimination in the workplace.

Perfect summer lifestyle.
New display homes now open
At Natureâ€™s Edge Buderim, the summer lifestyle is resort-style, every day. What better way to enjoy summer than with a 5-star Leisure Centre right on your doorstep? Cool off in a 20-metre pool, escape the heat in an air-conditioned cinema or catch up for twilight drinks on the deck after a game of pickleball. The architecturally-designed homes at Natureâ€™s Edge Buderim optimise the tranquil rainforest setting and catch cooling breezes, whilst solar panels mean reduced energy bills.
Better still, homes are priced at less than the Buderim median, so selling the family home may help you top up your retirement savings! Contact one of our lifestyle advisers for a personalised tour today.

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23)
LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
This week, there’s a lunar eclipse, plus Mercury (your ruler) connects with unpredictable Uranus and moves into adventurous Aquarius. So, strive to be more spontaneous as you toss your usual timetable out the window and stretch your adaptability muscles.
Monday’s supermoon eclipse highlights your hopes and wishes zone, so it’s a wonderful week to expand (or re-visit) your goals for 2019. Don’t be half-hearted. Go for gold and make your dreams as big and beautiful as you possibly can!
It will be hard to get the balance right between your personal and professional lives this week. The pressure’s on at work, but don’t let that blind you to the pressing needs of a loved one at home.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
Moderation and common sense fly out the window this week as you party to the max, spend too much, overdo just about everything and make some silly mistakes. But you’ll certainly have a lot of fun along the way!
Monday looks rather exasperating as the Mars/Saturn square frustrates plans and slows progress. The supermoon eclipse shines a spotlight on lust and loot, so an intimate relationship could soar spectacularly or crash and burn.
Many Aquarians are rebels at heart. But, remember there’s a fine line between being rebellious and just plain reckless. You’re impatient for change; however, don’t be too hasty and throw the baby out with the bathwater!
A relationship looks rather confusing on Monday, so don’t make assumptions. Check the facts before you respond. With the lunar eclipse stimulating your wellbeing zone, strive to be more proactive about your health, diet and fitness.
WORD STEP Complete the list by changing one letter at a time to create a new word at each step. One possible answer shown below.
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23) This week’s lunar eclipse in Leo boosts your confidence, charisma and chutzpah. It’s also time to give your undivided attention to others. Communication is favoured as you converse with a wide range of family, friends and colleagues.

Cash-strapped crabs – avoid going on a spontaneous spending spree or lending money to others. You’re liable to make impulsive decisions based purely on your emotions (which are fluctuating wildly, courtesy of Monday’s supermoon eclipse).

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
The stars favour communicating from the heart. But with the supermoon eclipse and Uranus loosening your tongue, resist the urge to tell tall tales and spread salacious gossip. Slow down, think things through and try to speak as tactfully as possible.

GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
With Monday’s fiery lunar eclipse heating up your home zone, tread carefully with fragile family members. It will be oh-so-easy to say the wrong thing to the wrong person at the wrong time, so aim to be a super tactful Taurus.
WORD STEP: BLANK BLACK SLACK SLICK SLICE SPICE
TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)
Monday’s lunar eclipse in Leo fires up your restless and spontaneous side. Then, Uranus revs up your tendency to make hasty remarks (that you later regret). Remember, rams: it takes a short time to burn bridges and a lot longer to mend them!

with MWP’s man in the water
Okay, here is the surf report we all dream of – four to seven foot waves with no onshore winds and no more than a dozen people in the water all day. A perfect left-hand break with an amazing barrel section. The waves break down the side of a pristine island in North Sumatra. Yep, this is next week’s forecast for the lucky punters. Now for here… nothing but onshore devil wind and small waves. I should be grateful as I currently have a stuffed ankle. A road trip down south is the best option. Crescent Head if you drive all night! Later peeps.
