FROM THE EDITOR

S

unshine Coast father Jim Lee has three things he wants you to do. The first is to learn about stimming – Google it. The second is to offer help if you see a child or adult in distress. The third is to open your mind, educate yourself and start talking positively about autism. April is Autism Awareness month and, what you might not know, is that there are almost 250,000 Australians on the spectrum. Autism – now commonly known as ASD – is an often misunderstood disorder, more than likely due to the lack of education and awareness, and the stigma, that surrounds the issue. What Jim wants you to understand is that his child and others like him are not naughty or ‘strange’. Rather, they bring wonderful gifts to other people’s lives, have many differing abilities, and in some cases are extremely intelligent. Thankfully, there is a range of services available to families like the Lees who require a little extra support. One of these facilities is the STEPS Autism Treehouse, which will be the beneficiary of the upcoming Trek for Autism. We chat with both Jim and Treehouse founder Claire Gilmour in this week’s feature story on page 14. I’m sure this story will strike a chord with many. Meanwhile, in this week’s profile story we chat with talented funny man Hamish Blake. The beloved podcast, radio and television host will be back on our screens next week and in his element. We can’t wait! Until next week, take care.

First job? Fifteen years old, sales assistant in an accessories shop. I’ve had an accessories obsession since then, and its not getting any better.

Best day in your life and why? Every day is the best day ever. Tomorrow will be even better.

What are you currently working on? One million projects for one million organisations who all want a million dollars. I specialise in funding for not-for-profit organisations, so I’m always busy finding money for people who do good work for others. It must be the most rewarding job in the world and I love it. Your family includes? My dog, my cat and my beautiful community. First car? Daihatsu Charade. Favourite book? Khaled Hosseini’s A Thousand Splendid Suns. If your life was a book, what would the title be? Never A Dull Moment. What are you reading now? Rise Sister Rise by Rebecca Campbell.

giant BIKE SALE 25% OFF

SELECTED BIKES

What achievement are you most proud of? Moving to Australia and starting my own business. You are happiest when? I’m eating good food, listening to live music, surrounded by great friends. Or I’m in a new country where I can’t speak the language and I get lost. Go figure!

“Every day is the best day ever. Tomorrow will be even better”

What are you watching right now? Just binged-watched Russian Doll last week on Netflix, but I’m not much of a TV person. When was the last time you played sport? Hmm, does that include walking the dog? I’m not very sporty. Being an only child, I must have not developed a sense of competition. You want the ball? Here, please take it. Best advice you’ve been given? Be yourself always, it’s the only person you were meant to be. Also, good financial decisions are conscious not lucky. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast? First Bay Coolum. I find it a healing spot and it holds many happy memories for me. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be? The ruthless cutting down of beautiful trees. We tend to only appreciate something once it’s gone and we’ll need to wait hundreds of years

What frustrates you the most? Racist comments on Facebook. How do you deal with your frustrations? I try not to reactively type a barrage of comments. Instead I breathe deeply and send people love.

If you could tell your 18-year-old self anything, what would it be? It gets better. Hold on, sleep more, eat better and find love in yourself. If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be? My grandmother who passed, David Bowie and Jacinda Arden – she’s my role model at present. I have a picture of her on my office wall. If you won $1 million, how would you spend it? I’d spend a year in Kenya on a beach, building a social enterprise centre for women. I believe true gender equality starts from financial independence. Tea or coffee and how do you have it? Coffee all the way. NRL or AFL? Say what? It took me five years of living in Queensland before I discovered there were two types of football. I do follow the soccer World Cup though, those boys are pretty as!

FEATURE STORY

UNDERSTANDING AUTISM As the second annual Sunshine Coast Trek for Autism gears up, we talk to two local families who have children on the spectrum. Here’s what they would like you to know. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

Money raised will go towards reducing social isolation and provide families living with autism access to education…

The inaugural Sunshine Coast Trek for Autism

C

ooper Gilmour is just like any other 11-year-old. He loves Fortnite, Star Wars, Lego and Angry Birds and will often talk about each of them with great enthusiasm and at length with his friends and family. But when it comes to holding a conversation, he can take a bit longer to process a response, leaving him frustrated when his peers don’t have the patience to hang around to hear what he has to say. This auditory processing disorder is one of the challenging aspects of having an invisible disability like autism. April is Autism Awareness month and according to Autism Spectrum Australia, an estimated one in 70 people has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), which equates to almost 250,000 Australians. Autism affects almost four times as many boys than girls and the term ‘spectrum’ is used to emphasise that the neurological condition presents differently in every single person. The diagnostic criteria for ASD changed in 2013 and now ranges from high to low functioning, encompassing Asperger’s syndrome. People with ASD have a wide range of abilities, but they also face challenges around social skills and communication, and can have deep and often unwavering focus on their interests. Sensory issues, such an oversensitivity or undersensitivity to sounds,

smells or touch, is also common. Cooper’s mother Claire Gilmour says it took years for Cooper to be diagnosed. His speech failed to develop in his early years, he had some “monumental tantrums”, screaming if another child came near him, and had also taken great pleasure in lining up all his matchbox cars. When looking on Google, Ms Gilmour found he didn’t match other ‘typical’ autism symptoms. He liked to be hugged. He made eye-contact. And she was told by a few

us, but mostly grieving for the challenges in life Cooper was going to face,’’ she says. “Many, many questions circled amidst all the tears. So as any mother would do, I dried my tears, got my game face on and started researching and came up with a plan to give my little guy the best start in life. The tears do eventually slow down, I would like to say they eventually stop, but I would be lying.” Having just returned to the Sunshine Coast as a single mother, Ms Gilmour says she felt incredibly isolated when they received the

“We are showing everyone that our kids aren’t weird or strange or naughty, their brains just work differently. They still want friends, to go to events, to be involved…” Claire Gilmour and Cooper

general practitioners that “it was just a boy thing”. One finally carried out a developmental assessment and Cooper was referred to a pediatrician. He received his diagnosis right before his fourth birthday. “[It’s] safe to say my whole world crumbled around me and I went into a state of grieving. Grieving for the life I planned for

diagnosis and found there was no central place to go to for support. Like the other families struggling in silence, Ms Gilmour had to figure it all out on her own. Determined that no one should go through this life-changing transition alone, Ms Gilmour established Autism Treehouse in 2012. The like-minded community group

provides access to ASD referrals and resources, life skills programs and social events, as well as an understanding ear to listen and shoulder to cry on as families navigate this often-overwhelming journey. In October 2017, the Autism Treehouse merged with the national disability organisation STEPS Group Australia to form STEPS Autism Treehouse, which has now assisted hundreds of Sunshine Coast families, building a supportive community that has strengthened the fabric of the region. “The community has grown and embraced us,” Ms Gilmour says. “You realise so many families have been isolated and doing it tough on their own and Treehouse has created that sense of community and acceptance through our events, programs and support services. “We are showing everyone that our kids aren’t weird or strange or naughty, their brains just work differently. They still want friends, to go to events, to be involved and included and it’s up to us to provide those opportunities where they can be included in a safe, welcoming and supportive environment.” Ms Gilmour says one of the challenging aspects of autism is it is often a hidden disability. “While they may lack some social skills or say inappropriate things, all it takes is more education of the broader community to myweeklypreview.com.au

16/04/2019 8:31:15 AM


FEATURE STORY be more accepting of differences and the fact that some brains just work differently. “The sooner everyone can understand this, they will see that these kids bring a wonderful gift to other people’s lives. They are quirky and funny and when you remove that judgement, you will have more understanding and support for the parent of the child who is having a meltdown in the supermarket, for example.� The second annual Sunshine Coast Trek for Autism is fast approaching and at the time of print, more than 200 teams had registered for the 25-kilometre fundraising walk. Money raised will go towards reducing social isolation and provide families living with autism access to education, information and support services. Ms Gilmour says Treehouse is also taking active steps towards developing programs and resources for Mason Lee parents and teachers in mainstream schools, funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services. These schools are often under-resourced to properly assist children with autism. Having facilitated countless opportunities for parents to come together through STEPS Autism Treehouse, Ms Gilmour says it warms her heart when she hears families feel like they have “found their tribe� once connected. The Lee family from Kawana Island is one such family. They are still discovering the benefits of the organisation through their five-year-old son Mason. Angela Lee and husband Jim made the inaugural Trek for Autism a family affair, taking Mason, then four, along for the walk in his pram while his brother Blake was strapped to Mrs Lee in a harness. The family is again gearing up to take part. Mason was diagnosed with autism when he was two years old and is at the severe end of the spectrum. He is non-verbal and faces daily challenges with independence skills,

self-help and communicating what he needs. Using an award-winning app called Proloquo2Go, Mason can communicate with his parents, friends and teachers with his iPad by selecting images and symbols that the app then uses to speak for him. Mrs Lee says alarm bells started ringing for her when Mason reached 18 months and was still not talking or babbling. They had his ears tested and found fluid, but even surgery to insert grommets and remove adenoids did not improve his speech. He visited a pediatrician just before he turned two and a diagnosis followed a behavioural assessment. “They looked at him with imagination play and role modelling scenarios to engage what the expected response is versus what Mason’s response was,� Mrs Lee says. “There was lack of engagement, eye contact and he wasn’t responding to questions and had a lack of interest in reciprocal play. He was diagnosed then and there and we were given a ‘what to do now’ one-pager with some helpful links and organisations on the Sunshine Coast that could help us and away we went. “Even though I expected there to be some form of diagnosis, it is still shocking to hear that. Nothing quite prepares you.� The Lee family has established a routine that allows Mason to continue to grow and thrive, enjoying the adventures of the great outdoors while indulging in his love of trains, sea creatures and YouTube videos. “We wish people would ask us more questions, we would prefer for kids to come up and ask us how to play with Mason and ask what does Mason like rather than staring and pointing,� she says. “Parents can ask questions rather than making their own judgment calls or moving their child away. We’d love to see awareness and openness continue to grow.�

HEAR THEIR VOICE An open letter to readers from Sunshine Coast father, Jim Lee. “Every single day (and night) is a big struggle. It’s a sh*t show from when we open our eyes to when we get to sleep. But it’s our sh*t show and we find joy in the craziest of things. I am truly blessed to have someone by my side who has the strength to carry me when I am fatigued and she is lucky to have me carry her when she is close to broken. The true strength of us really comes at the end of a hell week when we are broken together. But we have to get up, suit up and power on another day. That’s what all parents do, right? Our day can change in the blink of an eye. Mason can go from having the best day in his life to a full-blown meltdown in the time it takes to say, ‘no wifi’. What makes it okay again? Maybe someone asking if we need a hand, or moving away and giving space, or even explaining to your naturally curious kids what a disability is. What doesn’t help is standing and staring or even worse the ‘just needs a good smack’, comments. By the way, if you have ever made that comment, we forgive you. Prior to having Mason, we probably did rude inconsiderate things because we lacked awareness. We find that the most normal things present the biggest challenges. We have certainly thinned out our friendship circle as we just can’t attend some things or have to attend alone. In most cases, we don’t want to put Mason in a high-stress environment, in some cases we just don’t want to ruin your event. The reality is that we wouldn’t really get a chance to speak to you anyway as we are normally running around trying to stop Mason throwing sand on your grazing table, or trying to persuade him not to grab the heart-shaped balloon that is more attractive to him than a Paw Patrol tower is to most five-year-olds. At this point I must say thanks to the many that do persevere with us. Who try their best to understand, who don’t see

disability, who take as much joy in a moment of development as we do. You are amazing people. If you want to help, please do the following for me. 1. Google “what is stimming� and pay attention. 2. If you see a distressed child/young person or even adult and you have any doubts, just ask if they need help. It’s a good human thing to do, autism or not. 3. Talk about Mason or another person with autism. He is a beautiful boy who promotes love more than any other human I have come across. The most fundamentally important thing you could do to give him a better experience of this world is to help others to understand his world even a little bit. It’s an amazing place and may even change you.

100 YEARS

COAST STUDENT TO TACKLE THE HIMALAYAS Sunshine Coast student Ben O’Connor, 12, has been inspired by someone close to him with cancer to climb a mountain in Nepal to raise funds for research into sarcomas – a group of rare childhood cancers which receive very little funding. A close family member has osteosarcoma and there is no known cure once it has spread. With the help of his dad, Andrew O’Connor, Ben will climb Mera Peak in the Himalayas in October. The summit will take three weeks in extreme conditions. The aim is to raise funds to help find a cure. Less than one per cent of cancer research funding is directed towards sarcoma and yet this rare group of cancers make up 20 per cent of all childhood cancers. The climb will be mentally and physically challenging, but Ben believes the difficulties he will face are nothing compared to those dealt with by kids with cancer. To find out how you can help, check out @ summitforsarcoma2019 on Instagram.

Zonta Club of Caloundra City’s inaugural Women Alive Festival will be held on May 4 at the Beerwah Community Hall. The event, which runs from 10am to 3pm, will see a range of speakers on topics including parenting, cyber safety, elder abuse and healthy eating in a bid to educate and empower women within the community. The event will also feature an upcycled fashion parade, children’s activities and light refreshments. Zonta Club celebrates its international 100-year anniversary this year.

IN CONVERSATION Australian Paralympian Karni Liddell has been an inspiration for many in the past few decades. Setting a swimming world record at the age of 14, Ms Liddell competed at the Paralympic Games in 1996 and 2000, winning bronze medals at the 1996 Atlanta Games in the Women’s 50-metre freestyle S6 event and the 2000 Sydney Games in the Women’s 4x50-metre freestyle 20 points event. Ms Liddell will be the guest speaker at the next Venue 114 In Conversation event on June 21, sharing her perspective on disability versus ability. Tickets are available at scvenuesandevents. com.au.

REVIEW USC PRESENTS HONORARY DOCTORATE

The first woman to ever be appointed as a Chief Justice of the High Court of Australia since its inception in 1903 was recognised with an Honorary Doctorate at a University of the Sunshine Coast graduation ceremony. Chief Justice Susan Kiefel’s promotion to the role in 2017 signified a landmark moment for Australia’s court system and the culmination of four decades of hard work and dedication by the respected legal professional. In 1987, Ms Kiefel was appointed as Queensland’s first female Queens Counsel and in 1993 was appointed to the Supreme Court of Queensland. In 2007 she became the third only female justice of the High Court before being appointed to the top role of Chief Justice in 2017. Chief Justice Kiefel says she is honoured to receive the award from the university and hopes that others may be encouraged to fulfil their potential.

LEG UP FOR BLOOMHILL The generous support of three Sunshine Coast businesses has ensured Bloomhill Cancer Care can continue to drive forward in style.

READY TO ROLL

As the Super Netball season heats up, Sunshine Coast locals are being presented with a new-look Lightning team. And while it’s too early to tell if they are in with a chance of winning a third straight premiership, they will certainly give fans plenty to cheer about. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

here is electricity in the air as the Lightning charge up, ready to storm through another Super Netball season. The 2019 squad looks a little different to the team of women who secured back-to-back premierships in 2017 and 2018, with former captain Geva Mentor and prolific goal shooter Caitlin Bassett among the four players who parted ways with the Lightning at the end of the 2018 season. But coach Noeline Taurua and the club worked hard to welcome back New Zealand great, midcourter Laura Langman and signed Ugandan goal shooter Peace Proscovia, South African goal keeper Phumza Maweni and ex-West Coast Fever defender Annika-Lee Jones to complete the team. The new-look Lightning will be captained by Laura Langman with Karla Pretorius as vice-captain. The team have been flexing their muscles throughout the #TeamGirls Cup pre-season tournament, a three-day event that featured all eight Super Netball teams at the Queensland State Netball Centre earlier this month. Traditionally, the Lightning have started off at a walking pace each season and built powerful momentum – a strategy that earned them the silverware for the first two years of the club’s existence. Ms Taurua says it has become somewhat of the Lightning style, but she is aiming for a “better start”. Fans and sponsors alike cannot wait for the Lightning’s 2019 campaign to kick off with the first-round match-up against the Collingwood Magpies on April 27. This will be the first time the Lightning come up against Ms Mentor. “Netball Australia do a wonderful job building the excitement of it all, but there is no nervousness about coming up against Geva and as far as I’m concerned, those players are still part of the Lightning family and there is always going to be huge respect going both ways,” Ms Taurua says. “We’re all waiting to see how the new team line-ups pan out and how individuals are going to make a difference to the overall performance of each team. “But once you put you’re colours on, you’re with your team and it’s all business out on the court.” With pre-season kicking off on November 12 last year, Ms Taurua says the new Lightning recruits have well and truly adapted to the club’s routines ahead of the season opening. “They each bring in their own flavour and their own style, not only on the court but off the court as well,” she says. “It’s been quite harmonious at this stage; everyone is

toiling away, but I think we’ve come together quite easily and that’s because of the characters and personalities we have in each of the individuals on the team. We have a core philosophy to work hard and get on with it.” With expansions being carried out at their home ground, the USC Stadium, spectator capacity for home games this season will be increased by around 1000, offering more fans the chance to see their idols in action on the court. Their first home game is not until round five, when the Lightning come up against the Canberra Giants. Ms Taurua says the 2019 season is shaping up to be quite unpredictable, with the Adelaide Thunderbirds, who have been on the bottom of the table for the last two seasons, looking quite strong with some international recruits brought on over the off season. “The [Melbourne] Vixens are always strong no matter what and play some hard netball with good possession, and with the services of Geva and Kelsey Browne, Collingwood will also be looking to get some good results. It seems like the gap is closing and that is exciting for the competition.” With a clearer understanding of what works for the Lightning, Ms Taurua says the club, which was founded in 2017, has stronger foundations from which to spring from

this year. “It’s about getting out on the court and looking at combinations and looking to consistently improve our performance,” she says. As far as thinking forward to a third premiership, Ms Taurua says there was a lot more “unspoken pressure” last year than what they are feeling coming into this season. “There’s always expectations surrounding back-to-back wins and we managed that,” she says. “This year, with a change-up in our roster, we have provided uncertainty to our competitors … and because of that, it feels like a new year and it’s quite exciting to be in the pot with everyone else. “We will be working hard to make the top four, and it’s not guaranteed by any means, so we are not feeling that extra pressure or feeling like it’s going to come with ease. We’ve got to work hard like everyone else and we’re ready.” The region will once again benefit from the televised exposure to hundreds of thousands of netball fans around Australia and New Zealand and the entire community is once again preparing to back our elite national team. AVID Property Group continues to support the team. “The Sunshine Coast Lightning has shown us how a team can build the spirit of a community and from that comes true success,” says AVID’s Queensland general manager Bruce Harper.

PAINTING A NEW FUTURE FOR WOMEN IN NEED

Award-winning Sunshine Coast artist and exhibition curator Margaret Ellen Turner is opening up her heart and her creations to a good cause. An exhibition called Painting Space is on at the Caloundra Regional Gallery and on May 3, Ms Turner will place her artworks up for live and silent auction to raise muchneeded funds for Zonta Club of Caloundra’s Say No to Domestic Violence to Women

campaign and its RISE project, which provides emergency accommodation to women and children fleeing domestic violence situations. Ms Turner says she is distressed by the high number of domestic violence cases in the country and wants to use her natural talent with a brush to make a difference. “I’m now 70 and I have had lots of opportunities come my way,” she says. “While I couldn’t summon up the cash to give a big donation, I have sweated blood and tears over these works, which have taken me a total of three years to create – each painting takes me about 10 months – and I want the sale of these artworks to make a real difference in the lives of other women.” Zonta Club of Caloundra president Simone Ricketts says the group has just celebrated 30 years of service in the community and its RISE accommodation remains in high demand. “There is always somebody to go in just as fast as somebody moves out,” she says. Painting Space also showcases the work of early-career artists Carley Cornelissen, Robyn Shaw and Alison Mooney.

PROFILE

LEGO OVERLORD: HAMISH BLAKE’S NEW GIG

Hamish Blake has built a dream career on having fun and his new show Lego Masters continues the tradition. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

IMAGE: CHANNEL NINE

I

n the eyes of little Sonny Blake, it’s normal for any dad to be dressed up in a chicken suit at the radio station one day and featuring as a voice actor on an internationally-acclaimed Disney movie the next. So even though his famous father Hamish Blake was beyond excited to tell him about his latest role, as the host of Channel Nine’s new show Lego Masters, the four-year-old wasn’t too impressed by the idea. “I made the dumb mistake of telling him I was making a show about Lego before he came in. I should’ve told him I was working at a bakery, and then when he walked in, I would have been like, ‘Actually, I’m doing a show about Lego’,” Mr Blake says. “So, he just came in and was like, ‘Yeah, great, it’s what I expected because that’s what you told me you were doing’. To him, it’s just one of the jobs available to parents and nothing I think is awesome will ever be awesome to him, that’s part of being a dad.” Having built a career as one half of comedic duo Hamish and Andy, Mr Blake knows all too well the pressures that come with high expectations to keep audiences engaged, something he and Andy Lee have been able to nail for almost two decades across radio, television and podcasting. So he was pleasantly surprised that Lego Masters, which will debut on April 28 and run for three weeks, was one of his most stressfree roles to date. “It’s a hell of a gig. I can’t be eliminated, there is no time pressure on me and I don’t even have to do any judging, that is all done by Brickman (Ryan McNaught, the sole Lego certified professional in the southern hemisphere). I just get to hang out and have a

great time chatting about Lego,” he says. Mr Blake admits he still has to revert to the instruction booklet to build anything of substance out of Lego. But, there won’t be a single booklet in sight on this show as eight teams of two are put through their paces in a series of colourful challenges designed to put their masterful skills to the test – with design, creativity, ingenuity, engineering and construction techniques, plus storytelling ability, all under scrutiny. Walking into the show’s brick storage room for the first time is a memory Mr Blake, a former child medieval and space-themed Lego enthusiast, will never forget. “It stirs something in you that is in a category next to primal, the child in you can’t believe you’re in a room with this

much Lego,” he says. “Every adult has the same reaction. You think, it’s too much, I shouldn’t be here, I shouldn’t have access to this much Lego. It really is an experience for both the teams and the viewers that we can only share once because by the time the second season comes, it will be the expected thing.” In the meantime, while families and Lego enthusiasts around the country revel in this new show, Mr Blake gets to live out eight-yearold Hamish’s dreams while “looking to pocket as much Lego as possible along the way without raising alarm”. It is just one in a long string of career highlights. It was fate that brought Mr Blake and Mr Lee together in the year 2000 at the University of Melbourne, where Mr Blake had

enrolled in a science/commerce double degree. He admits it wasn’t long before the “wheels fell off” his academic aspirations. Deciding to pursue comedy, their careers skyrocketed to unparalleled success when they hosted the highest rating radio program in Australian history. Their national drive show reached around 2.5 million listeners each week and their Caravan of Courage tours saw them venture to the Sunshine Coast a couple of times over the years. Their global Gap Year shows featured the boys’ escapades in New York, the UK, Asia, South America, India, New Zealand and Europe, earning three Silver Logies and a Silver and Gold Logie for Mr Blake personally. Together with radio and TV, they’ve also held comedy reign with their podcasts, having topped the iTunes charts as the number one in Australia. They now cross over the three platforms regularly and Mr Blake says he feels extremely grateful that fun can now be one of his main criteria for whether or not he pursues an opportunity, while spending as much time as he can with Sonny, 18-month-old Rudy and wife Zoë Foster Blake. “I have been lucky to be able to do so many different things, including ticking off my desire to impress my wife by acting in a Disney movie… even if it was just four lines… I’m pretty sure my role was critical to the success of the film,” he quips. “But now I can pick things to do that seem like fun and will take the right amount of time that I have to spend on it in order to make it good and to make it worth doing. I am so extremely grateful to be in a position to be able to do that.” Lego Masters premieres at 7pm on April 28.

MY OPINION

SPAGHETTI SHORTCUTS

NOT A FAN OF NAPLAN

Sami Muirhead says there are two types of people in the world: those who snap their spaghetti in half before they cook it and those who wouldn’t dare.

Richard O’Leary enjoys seeing his children develop a natural love of learning and believes NAPLAN does more harm than good.

T

here are two types of people in this world: those who snap their uncooked spaghetti pasta in half before throwing it in the pot and those who leave the pasta whole and stand there and watch the saucepan boil. Look, I never promised to write about world peace in this column, people. I have no problem with your race or sex or religion, but I am the queen of judgement if you stand their and watch your pasta boil. Who has time for that? It makes me angrier than missing out on a half-price sale. And why would you leave the pasta whole, because you are creating work by having to slide it into the saucepan at some point of the boiling process. Not this little red caboose. While that pasta is on the stovetop, I basically run a marathon by washing dishes and answering 12 questions from the kids including curly ones, like: “How do you make the colour red if it is a primary colour?” and “Do penguins have knees?”, and maybe check my phone for emails. Yes, in most cases the water boils over the sides of the pot and I end up doing a crazy little jig around the sink as I mutter swear words at the angry hissing saucepan while trying to pick it up with a tea towel. But the alternative is I could stand by the pot and be all Zen and mindful. Perhaps this is the core of the problem.

I failed miserably at trying to meditate. I could not still my mind or body despite giving it a red-hot go for months. I tell my kids some days it feels like there are scrambled eggs in my head. Zen Buddhist master Thich Nhat Hanh says while washing the dishes one should be washing the dishes, which means that while washing the dishes one should be completely aware of the fact one is washing the dishes. But that is harder than it sounds for many of us. My beautiful friend Tiffany is Italian and is horrified I snap my spaghetti pasta in half while is it raw. “It is meant to be long to wrap around your fork and it should be long enough to both stick to itself and get entangled in a way that it doesn’t slip off or let sauce drip from it,” she says. “The pasta must also be cooked right to allow the sauce to stick to it and the sauce should be thick enough to both stick to the pasta and not spit, dribble or splatter.” Well, if we are Nigella Lawson this sounds a grand plan to dine in a sexy dress and eat our spaghetti, channelling a pin-up girl from the 1950s, however for us mere mortals it is about surviving a mid-week night in the suburbs. And for the record, orange and violet make the colour red and penguins do indeed have knees!

R

iddle me this Batman. In a ramshackle one-storey pink house, there is a pink person, a pink cat, a pink fish, a pink computer, a pink chair, a pink table, a pink telephone, a pink shower – everything was pink. What colour were the stairs? This was one of the riddles my eightyear-old posed to me one Sunday as we chatted over breakfast. We’d Googled ‘riddles for kids’ and taken turns reading them to each other. It brought me great joy to see his mind ticking over as he searched for the clue in the question that would allow him to answer. The night before, his 10-year-old brother told me about how pi extends to infinity. “It’s the number you get if you divide the circumference of a circle by its diameter, Dad.” He went on to tell me that due to the number being infinite, pi contains the numbers of every phone number in the world… and if you let each number represent a letter, pi would account for every word of every book ever written, and that will ever be written. I asked him where he learnt it, although I already knew. “In a book.” My sons devour books. They read for pleasure, not because their parents told them to.

My boys are no different to any other kids. All children are born with a natural curiosity about the world around them – it’s adults who slowly but surely kill it. That’s why I asked my boys whether or not they wanted to do the NAPLAN test. From where I sit, the exam has no other purpose than to help education departments fill out sheets of stats. Where is the correlation between original thinking and NAPLAN? Where is the link between good teaching and NAPLAN results? I have the greatest respect for teachers – I’ve seen how hard my sister-in-law and niece work for their students. Some terrific teachers changed the course of my life by inspiring me to follow my passion for writing, English and history. Teachers are not the ones who insist upon the National Assessment Program. The authorities say it’s not about passing or failing, yet so many schools place such a heavy emphasis on it, and you’ll find countless practice tests on the internet to help your children do better. Meanwhile, kids stress out over something for which they shouldn’t even spare a second thought. What did my children decide? They chose to do it – curious I guess. In their school tests are a novelty. Oh, and the answer to the riddle? There weren’t any stairs, it was a one-storey house.

Richard O’Leary is a journalist, a political adviser and a father who knows there’s a deeper meaning to life, but struggles to find it.

BUSINESS & FINANCE

Troy Davey, Ord Minnett Buderim.

HEALTHCARE BUDGET

T

he highlights of the Budget for the domestic health providers are a $1.1-billion lift in primary care funding and a $309-million boost to imaging. Ord Minnett Research believes that Healius (HLS, Accumulate) and, to a lesser degree, Sonic Healthcare (SHL, Accumulate) should be clear beneficiaries of these funding initiatives. In this article we, based on our research team, provide some preliminary analysis of the financial impact, as we await further details, along with discussion with the various management teams, before reviewing our forecasts. The key elements of the $1.1-billion lift are $448 million over three years (starting from FY21) for chronic disease management, $201 million over five years for increased practice incentive payments (PIP) and $187 million over four years for indexation of 176 General Practitioners (GP) Medicare items. The listed providers are well positioned to share in each of these initiatives. Based on the forward estimates and historical Medicare data, Ord Minnett Research calculate these programs equate to an approximate 1.8 per cent lift in FY20 and additional 1.7 per cent boost for FY22 in the funding for GP services. In short, the bulk of this $1.1-billion will be aimed at GPs to support high-needs patients, as well as to provide personalised care for patients over the age of 70 who enrol with a single GP practice. For imaging, the $309-million uplift largely comes from the pre-announced lift in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) licences

and a program to introduce indexation of x-ray and ultrasound rebates from next July. This will include an additional 23 MRI licenses for imaging services as part of the previously announced $151.9-million investment in expanding the number of Medicare-eligible MRI machines to 50 in the past 12 months. Additionally, the Government will reintroduce indexing of ultrasound and x-ray diagnostic imaging services from July 1, 2020 at a cost of $198.6 million. Ord Minnett Research estimate this will result in a 1% boost to Medicare diagnostic imaging funding from FY20.

BEACH LIFE ALEX SOON TO COME TO LIFE

The much-anticipated apartments of Beach Life Alex will emerge in coming weeks, with Cube Developments appointing local construction company McNab to turn the impressive vision into a reality.

McNab construction manager Carl Nancarrow says the team is delighted to secure the project and expects to turn the sod on the 58 apartments in the next eight weeks. “These apartments, which are already 55 per cent sold, will offer uninterrupted, never-to-be-built-out views of the ocean to the east and the lake to the west in the heart of the vibrant Alexandra Headland community. They really represent the lifestyle we love on the Sunshine Coast.” Developer Scott Juniper says the project has attracted buyer interest both locally and outside the region.

“Healthcare stocks should benefit regardless of who is elected…” Based on our first-pass analysis, our research team estimate Healius should enjoy a $5 million uplift in profits from FY20, rising to about $10 million by FY22. This equates to a 4.5% Earnings Per Share uplift in FY20, rising to a 7.5% increase in FY22. Based on these estimates, the research team believes that Sonic is set to enjoy a $9.5-million lift in reported profit in FY20, rising to about $17 million in FY22. This equates to a 1.5 per cent and 2.5 per cent Earnings Per Share boost in FY20 and FY22, respectively. In respect of Aged Care, the $320-million lift in residential aged care funding via a one-off lift in Aged Care Funding Instrument rates in the June quarter was confirmed. With Labor announcing a package which included a $2.3-billion dollar Medicare cancer plan – healthcare stocks should benefit regardless of who is elected.

SURPRISE, SURPRISE Expect the unexpected when the Anywhere Festival comes to town.

T

he Anywhere Festival is coming to the Sunshine Coast next month, with a host of events already announced for the event that promises to hold performances anywhere except where you’d expect to find them. Independent Sunshine Coast artist Hayley Condon (pictured) will be showcasing Fish Out of Water, a show the University of the Sunshine Coast alumnus created for the FAST (Festival of Australian Student Theatre) festival in Brisbane late last year. Ms Condon says the show explores how people feel out of place in different social situations. “The show is an immersive piece where the audience is invited to be a part of a social anxiety group,” she says. “The show includes quirky moments and is led by Matilda Award-nominated actress Joanne Kohnke.” An all-female psychological drama titled Bea in the Basement will also captivate

audiences during Anywhere Festival. Written, directed and produced by Victoria Posner, the play follows Bea, who is on her way to university when she is kidnapped and locked in a basement with Gia. Who has taken them? A mysterious man upstairs. Why are they there? They have no idea. How will they survive? The only way is for them to stick together. Fish Out of Water is on at Kai Coffee in the Harmony estate on May 19 and May 26 at 5pm and 7pm both days. Tickets are $20 and are available at anywhere.is/fish. Bea in the Basement is on at SunCentral Basement in Maroochydore on May 18 at 2pm and 6.30pm. Tickets are available at anywhere.is/ listings/basement/.

Are you an Aries spendthrift? With the new moon stimulating your cash zone (plus impulsive Mercury and indulgent Venus both moving through your sign) you’re in the mood for a spontaneous spending spree. But is that a smart idea?

Bulls love their dependable routines, but this week you’ll be jolted out of pedantic predictability as Venus (your patron planet) powers through action-sign Aries. So it’s best to be smart and sexy… rather than self-indulgent and stubborn.

This week’s astro-emphasis is on volunteer work and providing spontaneous assistance to someone less fortunate. And there’s no room for negative self-talk. The Mercury/ Jupiter link encourages you to be kind and generous towards yourself.

Are you being too stubborn about an issue with a loved one or work colleague? Serious Saturn and perceptive Pluto push you to let go of a past grudge. On Friday, a fabulous work opportunity could come your way.

Do you have to be so virtuous, Virgo? This week try to find the sweet spot between being organised and overly spontaneous as you have fun AND get a lot done. Travel is likely over the next year, as Saturday night’s new moon activates your adventure zone.

This week, you’ll be given the chance to heal an old emotional wound or patch up a relationship problem. Don’t let false Libran pride stop you from taking a giant leap forward when it comes to love, forgiveness, family and friendship.

Transformation is the name of the game this week. A challenging relationship has the potential to be reborn into a much more positive partnership, but you must be prepared to release old grudges and forgive and forget.

or those looking to make the most of their coastal lifestyle, Sunshine Cove is arguably one of the most coveted addresses within the region’s beautiful coastal city of Maroochydore. And now your choice of Sunshine Cove homes has expanded to include the architecturally brilliant offering, The Brighton Apartments. An exclusive complex encompassing just 18 stunning residences over three floors, The Brighton Apartments will challenge your ideas on apartment living, with their

abundance of space and open plan styling that gives its interiors excellent ventilation and natural light. There are 12 apartments and six penthouses to choose from. Each one offers both a waterfront facing entertainment balcony with picture-perfect lake views and private terrace entrance. Within each contemporary floorplan, there’s enough space for three generous bedrooms, a main bathroom as well as a private ensuite for the master bedroom. Plus, each residence has secure underground parking bays. The Brighton Apartments’ size, level of inclusions and attention to detail is rarely experienced in traditional apartment offerings. These apartments and penthouses are more akin to family homes and, like modern family homes, they feature all the hallmarks you would expect from contemporary architectural design. To make your apartment truly your own,

you also have a choice of coordinated colour schemes, created by interior designers. When you have the luxury of space, you can afford to include the little extras that make life that little easier and so much more enjoyable. In the case of The Brighton Apartments, the features, fixtures and finishes go a step further to warmly embrace the ethos of our beloved indoor and outdoor, coastal lifestyle.

LOCATION As well as its spectacular water vistas, The Brighton Apartments are surrounded by parklands, lakefront boardwalks, landscaped parks, bike paths and walkways. Yet you’re in the urban heart of Maroochydore. You can choose to meet for coffee just around the corner or take a shopping trip to the newly expanded Sunshine Plaza. You can relax in the cool blue waves of Alexandra Headland’s beach or gather the family around for dinner along Ocean Street.

The day is yours to enjoy in your beautiful new home. The location is unbeatable – only a minute’s drive from the nexus of the Sunshine Motorway and the gateway to Maroochydore’s new city centre SunCentral, the Maroochy Boulevard.

“There are 12 apartments and six penthouses to choose from” You can be driving into Noosa in just 30 minutes. Yes, Sunshine Cove is indeed an enviable location, one that provides easy access to the entire Sunshine Coast region and of course the Bruce Highway. In real terms, that places your Brighton Apartment just 90 kilometres from Brisbane, if you can myweeklypreview.com.au

AVID CONTINUES LIGHTNING SPONSORSHIP

AVID Property Group has once again cemented its reputation as a community supporter by throwing its weight behind the two-time premiership winning Sunshine Coast Lightning. The announcement of the continued sponsorship was celebrated earlier this month at AVID’s Harmony estate. Lightning player and Harmony resident Laura Scherian, fellow teammates and mascot Lucy Lightning were joined by AVID Property Group Queensland’s general manager Bruce Harper (pictured, far left), Lightning CEO Danielle Smith and AVID Queensland

development manager Anthony Demiris. Mr Harper says AVID is pleased to support the reigning premiership-winning team. “We know how important local sporting clubs are in bringing people together,’’ he says. “The team had another incredible season last year, recording their second consecutive premiership in front of almost 14,000 fans, and at AVID we want to continue to be part of the Lightning story.”

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

It is starting to get cold as winter approaches so let’s hope, pray and cross every part of our bodies that we have a great winter of waves. We really did get shanked last year. Someone was recently telling me about a new wave set to open in Melbourne soon. It is near the airport and apparently can produce 1000 waves an hour at multiple sizes. Sounds impressive. But still bloody cold! Think for a moment how many people would give in to the pressure of peeing in their wetsuits to keep warm. Just a thought.
