FROM THE EDITOR

O

ur world continues to change at an unprecedented rate. It can be difficult to keep up with the constant technological advancements. My childhood was spent during the era of no mobile phones. I saw cassettes make way for CDs, video tapes replaced by DVDs and I fondly recall the ping of dial-up internet. We flew kites my dad made from bamboo sticks and newspaper, and taking a plane ride was a rare treat. We would argue over the window seat, eager to watch the world pass by below. Today’s children will remember childhoods of uninterrupted internet access, streaming services, STEM toys that teach four-year-olds about coding, and access to remote-controlled flying devices such as drones. There is no slowing down time, and with every passing day, our reliance on technology grows. The Drone Age is a newly coined term, and one which references society’s ability to access, and call on this new technology. From armed forces through to scientists, school students, photographers and even food delivery businesses, thousands of people are now utilising drones. This week we take a look at the growing interest and how this revolution is changing our everyday life. The story is on page 10. Also in this edition, we launch our new monthly 55 plus section, which features health and lifestyle advice from industry experts, as well as articles on current issues. It’s on page 36. Until next week, take care.

QUICK CHAT

LIVING THE DREAM Where do you live? The Sunshine Coast hinterland.

because I get to experience unconditional love.

First job? Selling flower seeds door to door in Chicago, aged 11.

Can you nominate a day in your life that turned out to be a turning point and why? At a seminar I was giving in Brisbane I asked, “Who here remembers the person who stood on the third box at the Olympics? Anybody here rush out to buy their book, thinking oh gee how’d you get third?� At the end of that program, a woman stood up and said, “Thanks very much. I was on the third box at the Olympics. My name’s Natalie Cook and I won bronze at the ’96 Atlanta Olympics in beach volleyball.� She said, “The reason I’m so upset by what you said today is it’s all true. I know you have the skills and tools I need to get me what I want, which is the gold medal at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Will you work with me?� For the next two-and-half years I worked with Natalie Cook and Kerri Pottharst and took them to win gold at the Sydney 2000 Olympics.

What are you currently working on? My next book. Your family includes? My wife Erin, our three beautiful children, Lucia, Sasha and Elijah, and Hamish the cat. First car? A 1964 VW convertible Beetle. Favourite book? Illusions by Richard Bach. If your life was a book, what would be the title? How Would Love Respond? What are you reading now? Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. Favourite song and why? The Impossible Dream from Man Of La Mancha. It’s always felt like a guide for the way I live my life. What are you watching right now, would you recommend it, and why? Escape Plan: The Extractors. It was directed by my mentor and dear friend John Herzfeld.

“In life, everyone gets a shot. It all comes down to what you do with your shot�

When was the last time you played sport and what was it? Even though it’s not officially a sport I train in the martial art of aikido three times a week, and have for the past 11 years.

Kurek Ashley BIO

h c a o c e f li

Kurek Ashley has appeared in 38 Hollywood movies, alongside the likes of Sylvester Stallone and John Travolta, and working behind the scenes on hundreds of others. He left Hollywood behind for the Queensland life, and is now best known as an internationally renowned success coach, speaker and best-selling author in the fields of self-discovery and peak performance, personal and professional development.

Best advice you’ve been given? Sylvester Stallone told me, in life, everyone gets a shot. It all comes down to what you do with your shot, and your shot rarely looks like what you think it was supposed to look like. So, treat everything as if it’s your shot in life. What is your favourite place on the Sunshine Coast and why? Cotton Tree – it’s where Erin married me. If you could change one thing on the Sunshine Coast, what would it be?

ON THIS DAY uly 19 IN HISTORY J 1873 – William Gosse sights Ayers Rock (Uluru), naming it after South Australian premier Henry Ayers. 2000 – An international measure is adopted to block rebel groups from trading “conflict diamonds” to fund Africa’s vicious civil wars. 2014 – The US says it believes a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 was brought down by a missile fired from an area of eastern Ukraine controlled by pro-Russian separatists. 2015 – Australian surfer Mick Fanning punches a shark that threatens him. – AAP

Today, July 19, marks 50 years since Apollo 11 and its astronauts, Neil Armstrong, Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin and Michael Collins, travel into orbit around the moon. The following day, Armstrong and Aldrin made history as the first two people to leave their bootprints on the moon. – Don’t miss next week’s My Weekly Preview as we cover the historic event and chat with Buzz Aldrin.

DO YOU REMEMBER? Where were you when humans first walked on the moon? I always recall the story my dad told: the family gathered around the neighbours’ television watching the historic event.

WORD OF THE WEEK Lionise To treat as an object of great importance.

Deep in Germany’s Black Forest, arachnologist Barbara Baehr first discovered the fascination with spiders that led her to Australia. Not so much the big hairy ones, but the tiny little spiders, like five new species of brushed jumping spiders she’s found. With most of Europe’s arachnids already identified, she moved to Australia where scientists estimate more than 70 per cent of spiders remain unclassified. Some 3500 species of Australian spiders have been classified but scientists believe that number will eventually soar past 10,000 species. Dr Baehr has classified dozens of spiders with the latest being tiny Australian jumping spiders – barely the size of a grain of rice. Along with colleagues Dr Joseph Schubert from Monash University and Dr Danilo Harms from the University of Hamburg, Dr Baehr has discovered five new species. Four of the five new species are from Queensland and one is from New South Wales. At only a few millimetres, they can be difficult to spot. One spider in particular with its large black eyes like sunglasses and its black and white front legs led to it being named after late fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld. – AAP

COVER STORY

Drones aren’t just a fad – these remotely operated flying machines are changing our lives and are now essential tools that help our emergency services, scientists and businesses. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

I

t was less than a decade ago that Australians could only dream of a future where drones could be used to deliver products, thwart criminals, save lives in the surf and replace fireworks with incredible synchronised light displays. But the future is here and remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPASs) are fast becoming integrated into our way of life. It is estimated that the world drone market will reach $127 billion by 2020 and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) estimates there are more than 150,000 RPASs in Australia. A sophisticated drone registration and accreditation scheme being implemented this year will give clearer numbers in the near future. CASA’s RPAS branch manager Luke Gumley says the number of remote pilot operator certificates will likely double the number of manned air operator certificates this year. More than 11,043 remote pilot licenses and 1510 operator certificates already issued for commercial drone flyers. “It’s hard to imagine where that might grow to in the next few years,” he says. “But if we look just at the licensing side of things, by 2023, based on current trends, we can see a total of 24,000 remote pilot licenses in Australia. “Remotely piloted aircraft represent a significant and growing component of Australia’s aviation sector and of CASA’s activity. The real expansion of drones was around 2012. Initially, drones required a lot

10 My Weekly Preview | July 19, 2019

of manual input to operate them, whereas current drones are highly automated and have more assistive systems – this makes them more accessible for all users. The pace of technological change in the RPAS sector means CASA must continue to adapt its more traditional approach to aviation safety.” CASA has granted special permission to a number of businesses and organisations to allow them flexibility in RPAS regulations, which requires drones to remain at least 30 metres away from people. In April, CASA granted Wing, which is run by Google’s overarching company Alphabet, permission to trial delivering products including burritos, coffee, gelato, chocolate, bread and medication from a dozen businesses by drone from the suburb of Mitchell, on the fringes of Canberra, to five surrounding suburbs for a year. This comes after a successful year-long trial in Bonython, in south Canberra, where more than a thousand deliveries were made without a safety incident. In addition, drones are being used by tech-savvy farmers to spray and monitor crops, by real estate agents to capture images of listed properties and by a growing number of people in the film industry. Drones are also empowering our first line responders. Surf Life Saving Queensland operations co-ordinator Jason Argent say four RPASs were deployed on the Sunshine Coast earlier

“The added height they give us, along with that different perspective… means we can be a lot more effective” Jason Argent, SLSQ

this year to boost front-line services and increase safety as part of the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Drone Program. “SLSQ has been testing drones for a number of years now, under various

conditions and in different capacities,” he says. “The surveillance capabilities of these drones enables us to closely monitor any rips, currents, sand bars and tidal movements in the water and, of course, keep an eye on any swimmers who may have strayed outside of the flags or need our help. “While drones won’t replace the need for surf lifesavers and lifeguards on the beach, they will definitely add significant value to our existing services. The added height they give us, along with that different perspective and viewpoint, means we can be a lot more effective and proactive with our surf patrols.” The Queensland Police Service (QPS) has been using RPASs since 2013 and was Australia’s first law enforcement jurisdiction to do so. Acting Sergeant Rob Whittle says the fleet of RPASs has grown to 63 across the state, with 57 pilots trained to use them. “Since 2013, the QPS has conducted 972 drone flights, including 480 in 2018 and 367 in the first six months of 2019,” he says. “The devices have helped improve outcomes by recording evidence quickly and accurately, as well as providing situational awareness at major incident scenes and assisting in some search and rescues.” Acting Sergeant Whittle says drones were deployed in post-disaster relief in a bushfire disaster area in late 2018 to obtain aerial photos and video of destroyed areas behind the still burning fire front. “In November 2017, there was a deployment of RPASs to myweeklypreview.com.au

COVER STORY

5 FAST FACTS The world drone market is estimated to reach $127 billion by 2020. The number of remote pilot operator certificates will likely double the number of manned air operator certificates this year. Drone-delivering technology is already being trialled by Google’s overarching company, Alphabet, in Canberra. The Queensland Police Service has conducted 972 drone flights, including 480 in 2018 and 367 in the first six months of 2019. CASA issued 63 fines in 2018, with offences ranging from not flying within line of sight, flying at night and flying within 30 metres of people, costing between $1050 and $10,500.

Mackay to assist in the investigation of an attempted murder of police officers by firearms,” he says. “The RPASs were used in support of forensic scene examination. “The outcome demonstrated RPAS support was extremely beneficial in this instance due to the size of the scene spanning approximately 2.5 kilometres. Aerial video and still imagery of the entire scene was completed quickly, captured within one hour of flight time, compared to traditional methods, which would have taken at least one day, with investigators being able to view the entire footage of the scene in a very short space of time. Aerial images and video were used by forensics in the construction and overall interactive production for investigators and assistance to the court.” Drones are also one of the essential tools being used for scientific research, with the University of the Sunshine Coast being the first tertiary institution in Australia to place drones in the hands of undergrads with the launch of the Mapping With Drones course. USC Senior Lecturer in Physical Geography Dr Javier Leon started using drones to enhance his research project

findings five years ago and has used the technology to measure shoreline erosion, monitor coral reefs in the Solomon Islands, map ghost crab populations to determine beach health and map soil erosion for agricultural applications. “The technology has advanced so much, we are able to gain measurements down to centimetre readings, which is something we could never have imagined just five years ago,” he says. “We can use thermal imaging equipment attached to drones to monitor wildlife, use overlapping photos taken by drones to reconstruct them into 3D structures and maps and what used to take a team of 10 people with extensive equipment up to a week to complete can now take two people a matter of half an hour.” Dr Leon says drones are transforming our way of life and USC is looking at how it can harness the passion of recreational drone pilots to become data-collecting partners. “We will be surrounded by drones of different shapes and sizes – whether we like it or not, they are going to be everywhere,” he says.“Things like brain-controlled flying used to be sci-fi, but it has already been developed and is being tested. People are working on overcoming the main limitations such as battery life and how to apply drones to things like transporting people.”

Drones are being used to assist police

Of course as with any technology, there are those who worry about the use of drones for military and surveillance applications, but Dr Leon says CASA is “at the forefront in the world on drone regulations”. Mr Gumley says CASA has a number of rules to protect the general population in terms of aviation safety, such as not operating within 30 metres of people, not flying at night and not flying within 5.5 kilometres of a controlled aerodrome. “CASA also conducted a passive drone surveillance trial near certain Australian airports and Sydney Harbour restricted airspace and at certain major events across Australia,” he says. “The surveillance equipment permitted CASA to identify the location of the airborne drone and its controller, with capability to easily deploy a mobile version of the surveillance equipment.” CASA issued 63 fines in 2018, with offences ranging from not flying within line of sight, flying at night and flying within 30 metres of people, costing between $1050 and $10,500. Among them was a $1050 fine imposed on a man who flew over an Ed Sheeran concert in Brisbane last year. Twentysix fines have been issued so far this year. According to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, there have been no reported collisions with aircraft in Australia and as of 2017, there were fewer than five reported worldwide. Most reported incidents were near-misses above 300 metres – well above the 120-metre ceiling imposed by CASA. There have, however been high profile incidents where drones have collided with land-based vehicles, including cars on the Sydney Harbour Bridge in late 2016. Flying commercially or for economic gain is illegal unless you have your remote pilot licence or are flying in the sub-two kilogram category and Mr Gumley says drone pilots must operate their drones safely and in accordance with the relevant regulations that govern aircraft operations. “We recommend that operators do their research, visit droneflyer.gov.au to make sure they operate within the rules and download an app from casa.gov.au/droneapp,” he says.

LEARN FROM THE COAST’S BEST DRONE RACERS

Connor Middleton & Eamon Kriz

Forget training for years on end to gain enough skill to take on the Red Bull Air Race. Those who have the need for speed can start on a much smaller scale with Drone racing. Sunshine Coast duo Eamon Kriz and Connor Middleton are at the forefront of drone racing in the region, founding Drone Camps late in 2018. Held several times a year, the camps are designed to teach aspiring drone racers how to build, fly and race a first-person view (FPV) drone at high speed around obstacle courses, giving pilots the sensation of being at the controls of a stunt aircraft. Mr Middleton says at their second camp, which was held earlier this year, the Australian Army and Australian Army Drone Racing team facilitated the first day to look at real-life applications of emerging drone technology. “There are not really any courses out there to teach drone racing and when I first started two years ago, I struggled to find information, so we decided to make one ourselves,” he says. “We have partnered with CQUniversity and people in our camps get to use the flight simulators on the Noosa campus so they can gain experience in flying before they try it with a real drone. Mr Middleton’s passion for racing is matched by Drone Camps co-founder Mr Kriz’s business acumen. Mr Kriz founded his aerial photography business, In The Air, two years ago and is an accredited commercial RPAS pilot. Together, they hope to bring the Coast up to speed on the potential to be part of the fastest-growing new international sport. Find out more at dronecamp.com.au.

LOVE YOUR SISTER RETURNS TO THE COAST The epic Love Your Sister Road Trip will see Gold Logie winner Samuel Johnson return to the Sunshine Coast, this time as part of White’s IGA Bli Bli community event. Coast fans will have another chance to meet the popular actor and Love Your Sister co-founder as he stops off at the Bli Bli IGA on July 25 from 9am to 10.30am. Love Your Sister merchandise is available to purchase at all White’s IGAs to support the charity Mr Johnson started in honour of his late sister Connie. White’s IGA co-owner Roz White says $2 heart tokens are available to buy at all White’s IGA stores until August 31, with all proceeds going to Love Your Sister. “We are incredibly honoured to be able to support Samuel and his team as they visit our store. He is such a genuine and gorgeous man who is multi-dimensional and real,” she says. “He’s an all-round top bloke and it’s no wonder that people love him so much.” Every stop on his journey around the country has seen Mr Johnson connect on a heart level with the people he meets, listening to their stories and drawing strength from their support. Mr Johnson has pledged to raise $10 million for cancer research and although his sister has since passed, he is determined to honour their mission. To find out more about the road trip, visit loveyoursister.org.

LOCAL MOTHER OF TWO WINS 160-KILOMETRE ENDURANCE RIDE BEATING 298 RIDERS Sunshine Coast endurance rider Kaylea Maher was able to fulfil her dream of holding up the most coveted prize in the sport of endurance riding – the Tom Quilty Gold Cup – when she crossed the line on Saturday ahead of 298 other riders from across Australia and abroad in the iconic 160-kilometre endurance race. Ms Maher completed the ride, which was hosted at the Stirling’s Crossing Equestrian Complex in Imbil Queensland, in 10 hours and eight minutes after setting off on the ultimate endurance challenge at midnight on Friday night. Ms Maher gave credit to her horse, Matta Mia Dimari, a locally bred Arabian with a feisty spirit. Second place went to Jamie Green from Brisbane and third place to Paul Bidei from France who both rode in the middleweight division. There was much excitement for the Cole family from Panuara, New South Wales, when mum Jolene took out the heavyweight division while her 13-year-old daughter Emma was the first junior. This is the first time that the Tom Quilty Gold Cup has been hosted at the Stirling’s Crossing Equestrian Complex and the iconic ride attracted around 2000 riders, support crew and spectators to the town.

A SECOND MOLOKAI CROSSING FOR GUTHRIE In 2018, Campbell Guthrie, a young Aussie Surf Lifesaver from Alexandra Headland, undertook the challenge of the Hawaiian Molokai Channel and battled a crossing claimed by the locals as one of the most difficult in years, to finish first in his under-29 age group and fifth overall in the Unlimited Prone class. The race across this treacherous but beautiful stretch of ocean has captured the young paddler’s heart and he is currently completing his training to make another crossing in this year’s race on July 28. With the benefit of previous race experience, Mr Guthrie hopes to improve his position and make the podium of the elite division. The 52-kilometre race starts in Kepuhi Bay on the northwest shore of Molokai and finishes in Maunalua Bay on the southeast shore of Oahu. myweeklypreview.com.au

NEW BATTERY SYSTEM’S TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL Electric cars are plugging in at the University of the Sunshine Coast as the precinct’s innovative solar project enters the final construction n stage.

T

he University of the Sunshine Coast’s innovative ‘water battery’ is a major step closer to being switched on, with new car park covers fitted with hundreds of solar panels at the Sippy Downs campus. The solar panels are among 6000 that have been installed to generate enough energy to cool the 4.5 megalitres of water that will be circulated through the campus air-conditioning and save 40 per cent of the university’s grid energy use. USC manager, energy and infrastructure Dennis Frost says the project is the result of an innovative partnership with Veolia, which will build and install a thermal water battery system and operate it for the first 10 years. “We are starting to get some really positive responses, particularly from people who are already using the [car] parks, seeing the solar panels installed and using the four new electric charging stations for cars,” Mr Frost says. “The thermal water tank is well under construction, and is nearly half its final height, with the roof built first and the walls seeming to grow beneath it as the tank structure is hoisted upwards.” Thanks to the project, USC mechanical

An artist’s impression of the tank and plant room engineering graduate Josh Craven, 23, has come full circle. He slotted into a role at Kunda Park with global environmental solutions provider Veolia soon after graduation and soon found himself back on campus to help construct the water battery. Mr Craven was involved in the early project planning, including layout drawings, site drawings, writing the scope of works and organising contracts. “It’s exciting to be working on a project that was designed for USC specifically to save energy and to protect the environment,” he says. “It is becoming increasingly crucial that we consider the impact we are having on the environment.”

A RUGBY STAR ON THE RISE Junior Wallabies ca captain a Fraser McReight is having the time of his life. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

F

raser McReight was first stt introduced to rugby years old after his union when he was five ve v ey parents enrolled him m iin n the sport to burn off his excess energy. The physical challenge challlen ng ge e and a mateship developed among team teammates have fuelled amm m Mr McReight’s passion passio on for f the sport, and this the St George year the 20-year-old joined joi Queensland Reds Train Training Squad and was named the Junior Wallabies captain. Wall The back rower, who w was born in Buderim, says it has been “a whirlwind of b a year” and the season seaso is far from over. He has already led le the Junior Wallabies to success in the Oceania Rugby U20 Championship, beating New Champio Zealand and lifting the t trophy for the first time in its five-y five-year history, and he helped get his side off o to a blistering start at the World Rugby U20 Ru Championship in Argentina, Ar spearheading a 36-12 win over Italy. Despite being the first Junior Wallabies side to make mak it to the final in nine years, they weren’t weren quite able to snatch the title away from the defending f champions, France’s Les L Bleuets. “It was a tough season seas – the boys really pulled together and put up u a good fight

though,” Mr McReight says. “I’d say bad luck got the better of us in some games and we didn’t get the win we were after. That being said, things are well and truly put into place for great success in the next year or two.” Starting with the Albany Creek Brumbies at the age of five, Mr McReight says a lot of hard work has gone into remaining on form and committed to the sport, which has seen him progress from Queensland Schoolboys and Sevens through to Australian Schoolboys in 2016 and make his debut for the Junior Wallabies in 2018. “The biggest challenges [in my progress] I would say I’ve had to face have been off the field. This includes the process of developing my body properly for each rank that I climb,” he says. “I’ve found more and more that eating the right food to allow for this development is so crucial. I have become a lot better food wise, but it’s vital that I keep working on the nutrition and body conditioning side of things, so I keep progressing as a player.” Thanks to his form in the latest international campaign Mr McReight’s form has been compared in rugby circles to one of his idols, George Smith. “I love George Smith, as he was on the

cover of Rugby 2005 on PlayStation 2 and I thought it was the coolest,” he says. “I have been fortunate enough to meet him a couple of times and do breakdown drills with him at the St George Queensland Reds, when I go in for training sessions.” Mr McReight says there have already been a number of highlights in his career so far and debuting with the St George Queensland Reds this year against The Brumbies is right up there. “We played on a scorching Sunday and we smashed them – it was quite the game,” he says. “The next moment that comes to mind was versing Argentina in their home town and winning the semi-final for the U20 Junior Wallabies.” Although his rugby commitments keep him away from the Coast during the season, Mr McReight says he is looking forward to returning to Caloundra, where his family are living. For those who are aspiring sportspeople in any code, Mr McReight says make sure you are having fun. “Life’s too short to do something you don’t enjoy, so enjoy the ride,” he says. “There can be a lot of ups and downs but just remember that if you are diligent and put in the work, results and success will come.”

PROFILE possibility of making a bequest, giving a donation, participating in an event, contributing your time and talent to the work the foundation does. “The foundation developed an ambassador program pretty early on in its life simply for the purpose of talking positively about the work the foundation does. That ambassador army has grown to around 400 people. You think about the power of that when conversations are had with neighbours and families. A sticker gets put on your car or your mailbox – ‘I’m a Buderim Foundation ambassador’ – it’s good old-fashioned promotion that works, especially when its face-to-face and based on quality relationships.” Mr Devers has been inspired by the Buderim War Memorial Community Association (BWMCA), as well as family members who served in WWI and WWII as well as all Australians past and present who have served Australia in the armed forces. “I’m also influenced by Hugh Mackay, the social researcher. He says it’s not where you live but how you live – we need communities and communities need us.” Mr Devers implemented a number of successful marketing strategies during his 13 years with the organisation, including being the principle contact with the foundation’s three sponsors, Buderim Pharmacy, Edenlea on Buderim and Sunshine Toyota. “Their donations have underpinned the cost base of the organisation, which has enabled us to say that if you donate a dollar, that whole dollar goes into the fund and never gets spent in perpetuity – it’s a great concept and very appealing. The organisation’s admin costs, insurances, hosting websites and all those sorts of things are covered off by our

three very generous sponsors.” Mr Devers is the kind of positive, wise soul you could easily chat for hours with over a cuppa, picking his brain about what he’s learned about happiness and success in his life. If he had to sum it all up, he’d say it all comes down to relationships. “Invest heavily in quality relationships with family, extended family, neighbours, friends and colleagues,” he says. “The more heavily you can invest in quality relationships on a really good, solid, meaningful face-to-face basis rather than social media or texting, the better. The reciprocal exchange of value when you are engaged with people who are important to you gives a lovely balance and it gives a social dividend for the individual.” While Mr Devers will always be involved with the Buderim Foundation, albeit in an unofficial capacity, he feels he stepped down from the board at the right time. “After 14 years it was time for me to do some serious succession planning. We needed fresh eyes, fresh energy, some new thinking. “That’s all important but I guess, it’s anchored in something that actually has runs on the board, policies and procedures and methods that have been demonstrated to work. I like the idea of renewal, but I also like the idea of being able to look in the rear view mirror and say, what we’ve done has worked.”

“Invest heavily in quality relationships with family, extended family, neighbours…”

The Mooloolaba Holiday Park on Parkyn Parade is closed until early December, with the facilities to be demolished and replaced with highquality, modern amenities. “This extensive $3.8 million upgrade will replace 75 small powered sites with 60 larger sites, with improved access, new amenities, landscaping and improved connections to the beachside boardwalk,” Divisional Councillor John Connolly says.

of the Aerodrome Road and First Avenue intersection at 11am and then a wide range of activities throughout the day, culminating in an evening performance program from 6pm. “Momentum is building around our city centre with the underground waste, roads and digital infrastructure for this first stage complete,” Mayor Jamieson says. “Construction of commercial buildings in the first stage has already commenced, with more timed to start later this year. “The city centre will be a valuable asset to our region as our economy and population continue to grow. We want to make sure our most valuable assets – our residents – are part of the excitement as our city centre takes shape and starts to evolve.” Sunshine Coast Council will showcase our smart city technology with interactive displays, with council officers on hand to explain some of the features that will be part of our new city centre. “The event will be a great opportunity to get a glimpse at what our future city will include and there will be plenty of interactive displays on show,” he says. There will be an opportunity to purchase limited refreshments from one of the local food vendors on site during the day. Residents are invited to pack a picnic and bring a rug or chair to enjoy the evening performance from 6pm. The Maroochydore City Centre project is Australia’s largest greenfield CBD development site and is being delivered over a 20-year period to service the wider Sunshine Coast and the 518,000 people expected to call the region home by 2041.

F

inancial year 2019 was a strong period for most asset classes, as listed property, equities and fixed-income returned at least nine per cent. Cash lagged again, returning just two per cent. Trade tensions and slowing global economic growth have caused central banks to re-think the path of interest rates, while the Reserve Bank of Australia decided to act, cutting rates to a record low of one per cent. Australian-listed property was by far the best-performing asset class, recording a 19 per cent return, as lower interest rates boosted property valuations and saw investors chase higher distribution yields. The search for yield and the federal election result also led to a strong secondhalf bounce in the Australian equity market,

CASTING CALL

putting it ahead of most international markets. In the local share market, returns from large-capitalisation stocks were superior to those from small caps, and materials outperformed financials. The communications sector – dominated by Telstra – had a significant reversal of fortunes, moving from being the worstperforming sector in fiscal 2018, when it lost 31 per cent, to the best-performing in fiscal 2019, with a gain of 41 per cent. In debt markets, government bonds outperformed corporate debt, as investors sought added protection against lower interest rates and recession risks. In alternative assets, the Australian dollar continued its descent, falling five per cent against the US dollar. Commodities were broadly lower, but this masked some major extremes, for example, thermal coal dived 38 per cent, while iron ore soared 75 per cent. Geopolitics and recession fears saw a late rally in gold, which finished 12 per cent higher. A company I would like to highlight this week is Alliance Aviation Services, which operates a variety of regular services, fly-in fly-out operations for the resources industry, commercial services for Virgin Australia and ad-hoc charters. The airline’s recent positive trading update highlighted a business with earnings in an upswing. The company is well-positioned from a

fundamental perspective, with an industryleading on-time performance rating of 95 per cent. Recent news flow has highlighted further expansion of its relationship with Virgin Australia in Queensland. The company has also confirmed the addition of six more planes to its fleet, taking the number of active aircraft to 44 by the end of 2019. The fleet will comprise 25 Fokker 100 jets (seating 100 passengers), 14 Fokker 70 jets (80) and five Fokker 50 turboprop aircraft (50). Alliance offers both wet leasing services (where it provides a fully crewed and serviced aircraft) and dry leasing (where only the aircraft is provided). It also provides Fokker spare parts supply, and engine sales and leasing services. Alliance has demonstrated an ability to

not only deploy recent aircraft additions productively, but also to do it at increasing rates of profitability per aircraft. The company also offers an attractive yield of 6.6 per cent, based on a forecast dividend per share of 17 cents, fully franked, for fiscal 2020. Furthermore, the acquisition by Qantas Airways of a 19.9 per cent stake in Alliance (subject to regulatory approval) underscores the strategic value of the Alliance business and its ability to deliver.

THE CURATED PLATE

Making the most of local produce

FLORA, FAUNA AND BUSH FOOD

The Curated Plate connects producers, chefs and consumers at a range of unique events, including Dining Under The Stars and a Royal Feast of Opera.

P

eople are starting to think and consume differently – there is a lot more interest in the meaning of local food and a desire to reduce food miles. Reconnecting with nature and the search for freshness, taste and authenticity are all part of that motivation, along with supporting local producers. The Curated Plate’s Destination Series presents a menu of new and unique dining experiences that will celebrate the connection between the love of local produce, exquisite food and soulful music, including two elegant events on August 10. For a night Dining Under The Stars at Flaxton Gardens, chef Alan Thompson has created an inspired three-course gala

banquet focussing on produce of the region. Each dish has a story to tell of provenance featuring the freshest of local ingredients highlighting some of our produce superstars. If you are missing Game of Thrones and looking for some medieval vibes, you might prefer a Royal Feast of Opera and fine dining in the Sunshine Castle. Chef Simon Wallace draws on the Sunshine Coast’s finest local producers to create an opulent pasture-to-plate four-course feast with a medieval twist, while some of the world’s most adored arias and operas are performed, challenging the incredible acoustics of the castle’s Great Hall with melody and music. Bookings are essential via thecuratedplate.com.au.

If you are looking for a heart-warming experience and a new appreciation for our local landscape and Indigenous culture, Experience Eumundi welcomes you. Gubbi Gubbi Dance will welcome you to country, and Kabi Kabi Custodian Lyndon Davis will share stories of the Eumundi region at a special event on August 9. Learn about seasonal indicators of flora and fauna and their ancient creation stories, Indigenous plant uses and local Kabi Kabi history, and Indigenous perspectives of caring for country and custodianship and the bush food calendar. Leave with a greater feeling of identity and belonging to country, and learn of our responsibility and roles as the new custodians of this great land. Experience Eumundi | Eumundi Bush Tucker Journey + Feast is a unique food experience from The Curated Plate’s Destination Series. Bookings are essential via thecuratedplate.com.au.

MY OPINION

TV ROOM REVAMP

HOT PURSUIT

Sami Muirhead disagrees with new research that says we think about sex eight times a day. She thinks about cheese, her dogs and a new TV room.

Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane says had drone technology been invented sooner, she may have escaped a run-in with the law.

B

est part of my week? It was having a really big belly laugh when I read humans think about sex eight times a day on average, according to new research. Oh, please! You know what I think about eight times a day? Sleeping. And going to some exotic island where it is happy hour all day and I only have to leave my hammock to dip my bronzed toes in the Pacific Ocean. I also think about blue cheese numerous times a day and I definitely think about my dogs eight times a day. I have also been daydreaming about a revamped TV room that will one day smell like fresh lavender and have Nordic furniture and big boho cushions scattered on Moroccan rugs. In my fantasy, my children and husband sit around in indoor tents, strumming Cat Stevens on the guitar and eating organic homemade protein balls. It will all resemble a Coachella festival filled with creative boho kids who are all dressed in clean beige linen overalls. Of course, our present TV room smells like a pet shop. A damp pet shop that has not been open to fresh air for a few weeks. Under the couch there could very well be a dead pet or two for all I know. There is most certainly a plastic cup; a tonne of

Lego; an umbrella; a sock or two and 12 dead cockroaches. It is a cesspit of stuffed toys, toy cars, Baby Bjorn outfits and sultanas. What is it with sultanas in your car and under your couch? Anyway, you do not ever want to end up under our couch. But this room has served us well for seven years as a TV room that has somehow morphed into a room for my three children. If the kitchen is the heartbeat of our home, then this TV room is the kidneys, where we go to give our systems a break and try to restore, replenish and rest the senses. It is where we all flop down when we have battled the world and we need some escapism and some fluffy rugs to warm our souls. But I am ready for change. I am ready to have a room we are proud to show our family and friends. So Operation New TV Room has commenced. I have started gathering Instagram pictures of amazing TV rooms that are probably sets for magazine shoots or homes of the rich and famous. Anyway, I am sure as heck not thinking about sex eight times a day. I will let you know how I go over the next few months with the makeover. If you do not hear from me, please send a search party to look under my couch.

S

itting down to write about what a future with skies filled with drones would look like for this week’s edition of My Weekly Preview, my mind began to wander and I imagined how the unmanned aerial vehicles would have improved my life in times past. Of all the scenarios I could conjure, there was most definitely a standout – the time when my car tyres were mistakenly spiked by police officers while they were in hot pursuit of a criminal down the Bruce Highway about a decade ago. That day, I experienced what it might feel like to be a criminal – if only briefly. Let me paint the picture for you. I was on a flight from New Zealand back to the Sunshine Coast after visiting family. Everything was proceeding as usual, until a message over the plane’s intercom system announced: “Roxanne McCartyO’Kane, please make yourself known to airline staff upon departure from this aircraft.” Immediately, my mind wandered to all kinds of places you never dare to let it venture to and it was without a doubt the longest 20-minute window of my life. When I got off the plane, I dutifully spoke with a lovely woman from the airline, who pointed out two Queensland Police Service officers and summoned them over. I’m thinking, ‘Did I purchase too much duty free? What has happened to my family? Did someone die?’

Turns out, the reality was something I never would have anticipated. “We’ve intercepted your father, who was driving your vehicle. We mistook your vehicle for one we had been pursuing for hours southbound on the Bruce Highway.” They deployed the tyre spikes in front of my dad, who was driving to the airport to collect me, and all four tyres were deflated. Relief washed over me, but was quickly replaced with embarrassment. I received stares from just about every person at the Brisbane International Terminal that afternoon as I was escorted to luggage collection by two armed police officers. I also found out what the back seat of a cop car is like, as they were kind enough to drive me home to the Sunshine Coast. They were very jovial and we had great conversation on the drive home and I have been gifted with an unusual life experience not many can lay claim to. Yes, they replaced my car tyres and no, I don’t know if they actually caught the crim they were looking for. Imagine if those officers had been able to deploy a series of drones to follow the car throughout its journey and then nab the driver once they had reached their destination? The QPS was the first law-enforcement agency in Australia to make use of drones to assist with their operations, so hopefully stories like mine will fast become one of those ‘in the good old days’ stories.

ORIGINAL COMEDY MAKES ITS SUNSHINE COAST DEBUT

m

The quirky laugh-out-loud comedy Dr Lurve and the Syringe of Shame was co-written by Buderim couple Lisa and Kevin Blair back in 2005 and was a sold-out hit when it made its debut in Western Australia. Now, it has had an overhaul and an update and has been injected with plenty of topical humour that local audiences will relish as the Coolum Theatre Players bring it to life on stage.

READER’S CORNER

m

THE GREAT ALONE Author: Kristin Hannah Publisher: Pan Macmillan RRP: $17.99 Reviewer: Virginia Harris The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah is a poignant account of seemingly insurmountable hardship and heartache as a family struggles to establish a new

Dr Lurve tells the tale of new medical intern Dr Richard Lurve, a smooth-talking womaniser who has failed his way through medical school, only managing to graduate because of family connections. He is sent to his first posting, St Wretched’s Regional Hospital, and meets some strange characters and discovers sinister events taking place. Blending song, dance, audience interaction and plenty of local in-jokes through the storyline, the writers and directors take their audience on quite a journey as the goings-on at St Wretched’s are unveiled. A cast of 24 performers and the production team and crew brings the total involvement of Sunshine Coast locals to around 40 people, all volunteers, who have spent the past few months creating the set, props, costumes and audience experiences for the show. It’s bawdy, cheeky, over the top and packed with laughs and fun. Dr Lurve is part pantomime, part improvisation and all comedy. Dr Lurve and the Syringe of Shame is on at the Coolum Civic Centre on July 19 and 20 at 7.30pm with a matinee on July 20 at 2pm. Tickets are available at coolumtheatre.com.au.

life in the remoteness of 1970s Alaska. Ernt Allbright, a Vietnam veteran suffering ensuing mental health issues, his wife Cora, in denial of these issues, and their teenage daughter Leni leave their former peripatetic lifestyle to embrace a new way of life in this unforgiving terrain. Inexperienced and unprepared as they are, community support helps them survive, but at huge costs in various ways. Kristin Hannah paints a portrait of enduring love and resilience that defies the imagination. The spirit and strength displayed by the characters, particularly the women, make this an incredibly powerful and emotionally charged read. From the outset, I was compelled to read until I had completed the very last word.

One-third of all men and half of all women will go into permanent residential care at some point in their later lives, though community care is the preferred option of most Australians. (ARC Centre of Excellence in Population Ageing Research (CEPAR) 2012)

TAKING CARE Old age will ultimately force many of us into abandoning our care to others, and for baby boomers caring for elderly parents, that reality is hitting close to home. WORDS: Lorraine Page.

T

he briefest mention of a nursing home is enough to send chills down the spine of many. Let’s be honest, no one hopes to spend their older years in one of these facilities. Rather, we want to maintain our mental alertness and physical health; preferably in our own homes, and on our own terms. However, the proportion of Australians turning 65 is projected to increase more rapidly over the next decade as further cohorts of baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) reach this age. Paradoxically, many baby boomers are already feeling the sting of advancing age by proxy. When home-care services can no longer support the escalating needs of frail-aged relatives, there is the

sudden call to find suitable nursing care. Jenny, in her sixities, recalls how she and her husband were unprepared for what lay ahead when her mother-in-law’s dementia worsened.“I knew nothing about nursing homes or assessments,” Jenny says of that time before comprehensive information was available on the Federal Government’s My Aged Care website (myagedcare.gov.au). “I didn’t even know where to start.” She eventually had her in-laws, May and Bernard, assessed and approved by an aged-care assessment team (ACAT) for home help. But as Bernard’s health deteriorated, Jenny and her husband James were spending more and more time with his parents. “May stopped being able to sign her name and because she had Alzheimer’s, she

thought people were stealing from her so the support workers couldn’t do much cleaning,” Jenny says. “I would fill out cheques for her to sign, and it was all very tricky and difficult. Finally Bernard’s health deteriorated to a point where he had to ask James to look after his finances, but only in a limited way. “We formalised James’ appointment as his father’s attorney through a solicitor because it would have been opposed by his brothers.” Jenny also organised pensions for May and Bernard as they had never sought any assistance from the government. In the end, Jenny and James had to source a nursing home for May. Bernard went into care some months later. Though both have since died, Jenny says collateral

damage to the family from that time has been lasting. “I think we should have had an official diagnosis of Alzheimer’s earlier for May,” Jenny says. “When you have brothers saying nothing is wrong, and their mother should never have been put into a nursing home, diagnosis is fairly important.” Though the government subsidises a range of aged-care services, including home care packages, you are expected to contribute to the cost of your care if you can afford to do so. Two years ago, 50-something Barbara was introduced to the aged-care system when her grandmother, Violet, fell and broke her hip two weeks before her 95th birthday. “Gran and her partner Bob had been assessed for high-care community packages, but would only accept domestic services once a fortnight. I think they may have not understood the help that was available,” she says. “Bob still did the shopping despite his health problems. My cousin would stay with my grandmother at night if he had to go to hospital.” But when Violet broke her hip and was in a Toowoomba hospital at the same time Bob was hospitalised in Brisbane, both were told they couldn’t go back home.

55 PLUS “She had macular degeneration, but quite frankly at her age she didn’t have the mobility to go back home,” Barbara says. “And we thought, my God what are we going to do?” For internet-savvy, time-poor baby boomers acting on behalf of elderly relatives, a placement consultant may be worth considering. Former personal carer Berenice Wadham is now the operator of independent service Aged Care Assistance Placement Consultancy. She and other placement consultants have an in-depth conversation with the client, find out their criteria for a nursing home and combine that with further information from the hospital about their care requirements. “I present the family with the list of facilities, sometimes up to 10, and I get them to make appointments and go along and look at these facilities. When they’re happy they get me to send applications through,” Ms Wadham says. “Family members care about each other

and they want the best. What they don’t understand is that there’s so much research that has to go into which facility is going to be suitable. Ms Wadham says aged care funding is complex and nursing homes are selecting people from their waiting lists that will generate a high level of funding. People on the low to mid-range of the care spectrum are finding it more difficult to find placement. Another important component of her work is guiding clients through the costs involved for entry to residential aged care, whether the applicant is supported or not supported by government. A baby boomer herself, who has placed both parents in care, she’s working on her generation to be prepared. Invariably, she stresses the importance of making an enduring power of attorney, in accordance with your instructions while you still have capacity, and having a retirement plan overseen by a financial advisor with expertise in aged care.

It’s an easy read and a sound starting point for older people, Steps to enter an families and carers aged care home in understanding the process of moving into an aged-care home.

WHERE IS OUR SENSE OF COMMUNITY?

I

recently attended the launch of a book called Beyond the Money by Steve Mendl, a ‘retirement coach’ (who knew there was such a thing?). He talks about there being much more to retirement than the super fund and applying for the pension. This includes being able to feel a sense of community when your workplace community has gone. His reference to dwindling numbers in many organisations such as service clubs, church groups and even golf clubs rang true. When was the last time I heard about Jaycees? Or Apex? Church youth and fellowship groups? Sunday schools? Lionesses? Even the CWA, Scouts, Guides, Cubs and Brownies, Rotary and Lions seem to have dropped off the radar or, at best, are falling victim to waning numbers. Through the latter half of the 20th century, news and photos from busy community groups filled pages in the weekly paper. The Apex club members who committed themselves to looking after the elderly by building a retirement home in Nambour called Sundale comes to mind. Groups were an integral part of the community but now, in this digital age of so-called communication, they have gone quiet or disappeared and contact comes

more from Facebook than turning up at weekly or monthly meetings. So what happened? Are our community organisations dying of old age? Or has our sense of community simply cooled amid the storm of activities and opportunities that keep us busy? Looking after the grandkids, planning the next trip, going to the gym – it’s not as though we aren’t busy. But we just don’t seem to band together much. I can’t remember the last time I heard about a working bee. This is not to say these things don’t happen, but just not in the numbers that filled the post-war years when a woman’s place was in the home, baking and mending and keeping the home fires burning while the men went to work. Telephones were still relatively novel, so

“When was the last time I heard about Jaycees? Or Apex? Church youth and fellowship groups?” people actually went to meetings to talk about business, whether it was the local business owners drumming up contacts or women sharing cooking and knitting tips. In this busy yet socially isolated digital world, we are losing the simple pleasures of being part of a community. Mendl says it well: “The happiest people are those with the healthiest relationships, whether it’s a group of friends, neighbours, or the people in your town. Find your tribe.”

Hip and knee pain holding you back?

Help is on hand Home Care Packages can be a great way of staying in your own home for as long as you wish. Believe me when I say that navigating the system can be worth it to access services for yourself or someone you are caring for. The system can be tedious and overwhelming, and with 128,000 people on the national wait list for Home Care Packages, it can be a long wait. The good news is that going through the process eventually leads to a fantastic funding

“There is a fair amount of flexibility as long as we can relate it back to your care needs” stream, allowing you many choices and great control of services. These government-funded services can contribute to a higher quality of life with the right service provider. And it doesn’t matter how old we are, we always need a reason to get out of bed in the morning and have something to enjoy. This can be as simple as feeling fear or anxiety around leaving the house and having a regular carer you trust to assist with transport and purchasing a ticket to the movies, or playing bingo. Anything that

you used to enjoy that you have let go due to factors associated with ageing or ill health. There is a fair amount of flexibility as long as we can relate it back to your care needs. For instance, you can have therapies, buy equipment or pay for transport to appointments. You can use it for a carer to accompany you to an event such as the football. The key is to find a provider who takes the time to listen and understand how your Home Care Package can best meet the needs of you and your family. As we age, we don’t necessarily feel older, and it can be frustrating when our bodies let us down. Quality of life is so important when planning your senior years.

Clinical trials available locally for blood disorders The Sunshine Coast Haematology and Oncology Clinic is collaborating with the University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre to bring clinical trials for blood disorders to residents of the Sunshine Coast and surrounding areas. Our first available trial that is actively recruiting at the facility is called Cadenza and is using a novel treatment given every two weeks to treat a rare blood condition called cold agglutinin disease, which can cause life-threatening anaemia. Patients are being recruited globally to this phase three study and we are proud to be one of the few facilities in Australia that has been chosen to take part. As the clinical haematologist and principal investigator for Cadenza, I have been working in private practice on the Coast for six years. With Cadenza, we’re able to offer targeted treatment for a rare disorder that has been difficult to treat in the past without resorting to chemotherapy. We’ve recruited the first patient in Australia onto the trial. This is an important first step and we hope to offer many more clinical trials for blood disorders in the future.

Will and testament – are you prepared for the inevitable? Have you often thought about making a will but never got around to it? Many people leave it too late and either lose mental capacity or pass away before making their will. If you lose capacity before making a will, all is not lost. An application can be made to the Supreme Court for your will to be made or updated. However, that will involve stress, time and incur significant costs. If you pass away without a will, the legislation will determine how your estate is gifted. That’s right, you don’t get a say in where all those assets that you’ve built up over the years go. If you prepare your own will, court application may be needed if: i) the will is not executed properly, or the terms are ambiguous ii) you do not consider who could challenge the will or which assets make it into the estate. Seeking professional advice and having a well-structured estate plan in place, will make the estate administration process simpler, less stressful and less costly.

Diabetes – What’s the big deal?

Struggling to hear? There are solutions

Enhance your smile

When my grandad was 58, he was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. He had actually had diabetes for a number of years prior and these high blood sugar levels had started causing damage to his eyes and kidneys. The symptoms of diabetes had been there. However, like many people, he passed it off as old age. He was passing more urine and he tired more easily. He loved to garden, but found when he cut himself, it took longer to heal. His vision was blurry despite wearing his glasses. These are classic signs of type 2 diabetes. Our sedentary lifestyle has led to an increase in type 2 diabetes. Typically, it was generally diagnosed in people aged over 45, or from the age of 35 in Indigenous people. Now we have people in their early twenties being diagnosed. Interestingly, in 58 per cent of type 2 cases, the disease is preventable. To reduce your risk: • Maintain a healthy weight – carrying extra fat around the waist is a big risk factor • Engage in regular physical activity • Make healthy food choices • Manage blood pressure • Manage cholesterol levels • Don’t smoke. There are screening tools to help identify your risk of diabetes. Talk to your GP or your local pharmacist for details.

One of the most common complaints we receive in our practice is that people struggle to hear conversations in a restaurant or a crowded room. Most people instinctively place themselves in the corner, so that they can see everything going on. This is the worst thing you can do if you have hearing problems. Our ears face forward, so if you’re facing the crowd, you’re hearing the crowd. For those suffering from hearing loss, the best place to sit is towards the corner of the room with your back to the noise. Face those you want to hear, not the crowd. This position ensures you block out as much background noise as possible, get less reverberation from the walls and focus your hearing onto those in your party. Even better, if they have an outdoor area, take a coat and sit outside, away from the noise. Restaurants 30 years ago were comfortable places to communicate. Changing regulations and interior design have conspired to make dining out a frustrating exercise for many. With more background noise, everyone speaks louder. The same problem exists in many homes with the trend for open-plan living creating issues. Repositioning the TV so that the noise is behind you, or running the dishwasher when you go to bed instead of straight after the meal, can help to reduce the problem.

Brush your teeth and gums with toothpaste once the dentures are removed. This will help fight infections and decay and refresh your mouth and breath. Remove dentures at night to give your gums a rest. This is the perfect time to soak them using a suitable denture cleanser tablet. Prevent staining by limiting tea, coffee and red wine. Otherwise, make a habit of rinsing your dentures after meals. Visit your dental prosthetist if your dentures are cracked, stained or loose. Your dental prosthetist can schedule regular visits to check your dentures for fit and function, and can also examine your mouth for any ulcers or sores.

ctive, adventurous and with no intention of slowing down, Judy Moore’s decision to move to GemLife Bribie Island’s over 50s resort, with its extensive recreational facilities, was an easy one. For Ms Moore, a semi-retired disaster relief manager, the resort’s Sunshine Coast location and its first-class country club’s fitness and leisure options ticked all the boxes. “I analysed my lifestyle when I started looking into downsizing three months ago. Everything I do is around fitness and adventure - Bribie Island has all of it. The facilities here are better than a holiday resort – it’s like being on permanent vacation,” she says. After spending 30 years working in some of the world’s worst active disaster and war zones, including hot-spots in Rwanda, Uganda, Iraq and Afghanistan, Ms Moore knows the importance of health and fitness. “It’s so important to be fit and healthy. It makes life easier. During some of my deployments, I’d sometimes only get four or five hours sleep a night and sometimes no food. Being fit helps you cope better,

physically and mentally,” she says. Ms Moore plans to be a regular user of GemLife Bribie Island’s clubhouse gym and is keen to make good use of its other facilities including the championship-grade lawn bowls green, swimming pool, golf simulator, ten pin bowling alley, pickle ball courts as well as ballroom dancing classes. With fitness interests that would put most 20-year-olds to shame, she also hikes, boxes, circuit trains, cycles, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, scuba-dives, enjoys four-wheel driving, snorkelling, fishing and is eager to get her boat licence. Ms Moore’s work has taken her to about 50 countries and, being an avid traveller, she’s determined to expand that number with the peace of mind of living in a gated community. “I plan to travel a lot and knowing my home is secure and I can lock-up and go without worry is important,” she says.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)

Thursday is one of your luckiest days of the year when prosperity planet Jupiter links up with Mars (your power planet). Courage and confidence will take you places, plus motivation and energy will take you far.

With Mercury reversing through your education and neighbourhood zones, it’s a suitable week to revise work or revisit a local friendship. But be very clear when communicating; what someone says and what you hear may be two very different things.

Mercury is your ruling planet, so retrograde is a tricky time. The current Mercury retrograde lasts until July 31, so carefully consider any big choices you have to make. And – if you can – delay making important decisions until August.

A close friend or work colleague requires your help, but avoid being bossy and taking over. With Mercury reversing through your sign, you could blurt out something that you later regret or someone could make a cutting comment that annoys you.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)

SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)

By the end of the week, the sun, Mars and Venus will all be visiting your sign, so it’s time for charismatic cats to really sparkle and shine! You’re also in the mood for excess. But remember: Mercury is reversing through your self-sabotage zone.

Relationships and group activities look complicated as family and friends debate a wide range of topics and calm cooperation goes out the window. If you have a problem that’s bothering you, don’t over-think things. Instead, let your intuition be your guide.

If you are confident and prepared in the way you post online comments this week, you’ll receive a surprisingly positive response. It’s also time to get circulating within your local community and meet some fresh new faces.

The sun, Mars and Venus are all visiting your career zone this week, so you’re keen to power ahead with a professional project or a creative idea. But with Mercury reversing through your aspirations zone, pursuing your dreams won’t be a direct journey.

CREATING COMPETITION

Ray White Caloundra’s Tom Garland explains the importance of targeting all potential buyers for your home. WORDS: Roxanne McCarty-O’Kane.

T

here may be fewer properties available for sale now than there were 18 months ago, but it is still imperative for sellers to invest in marketing to ensure they attract the highest possible sale price for their property. In fact, a property sale through Ray White Caloundra’s Tom Garland earlier this year saw sellers invest $6000 in a holistic marketing campaign to receive $82,000 above the reserve price for their Golden Beach home. Mr Garland says property listing numbers have been fairly steady, but the average days on market for private treaty listings has blown out. “The likelihood of selling through private treaty within a 30-day period is 12 per cent. Over a longer timeframe, the majority of properties do sell and settle, but this is down dramatically from where they were 18 months ago, when clearance rates were closer to 50 per cent in a 30-day period,” he says. With more time for buyers to consider their options, Mr Garland says the Coast market has swung from being heavily geared in the seller’s favour to a neutral market, making it more important than ever for sellers to put their best foot forward when it comes to marketing.

He says auctions are the best bet to create competition, provide an opportunity for the seller to achieve the best possible sale price for the home and know what the date of sale will be, so it’s not lingering on the market for more than 30 days and attracting low-ball

“All record prices are created through auction” Tom Garland

offers from buyers. “Historically, all record prices are created through auction, not private treaty. Whether it’s a car, a piece of art or a house that is being sold, record prices are achieved when there are multiple bidders and a competitive environment is created,” he says. “The seller sets their terms and will have a clean contract of sale, not subject to sale of another property or pest inspections or winning the Lotto. The longer a property is on

the market for, the less likely they are to get their asking price, and the bigger the discount they are likely to give.” Mr Garland says targeting all potential buyers from the online audience through to readers of My Weekly Preview, who can become enamoured with a photo they see in the magazine and fall in love with a property, means the “net is cast as wide as possible” to find the perfect buyer. “A lot of the older clients that we deal with in my generation of the late fifties and sixties, are cashed up buyers with serious money to spend. “They don’t need to sell their own homes, get finance or put three kids through school and they don’t like to scroll through the internet,” he says. “They will sit down with a copy of My Weekly Preview and look through the property section and enjoy the living, breathing document by circling properties they like and looking at them every time they go past the dining table. “Why would you be worried about a few thousand dollars [in marketing] when it would guarantee you would not leave any stone unturned in your search for the perfect buyer?”

SURF REPORT

with MWP’s man in the water

Okay peeps, not looking that flash for the weekend. Forecast is saying the devil wind might be blowing up. At the time of writing, J-Bay was running with some incredible waves. Sadly, Julian did not get through, but Kelly is still rocking along. Joke – how do you know if someone is ticklish? You give them a test tickle (testicle). Have fun!
