Congratulations to the winner of the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network Awards Outstanding Business Woman of the Year, Emma Greenhatch. As deputy editor Leigh Robshaw writes in this week’s profile, when Ms Greenhatch settled on the Sunshine Coast, she was not quite sure what her next move would be. However, with a successful and adventurous career behind her, it was not a surprise that her expertise would soon find its niche here. (To read her full story go to pages 16–17). This week, the cover story is about kindness and its natural connection to mental health. Until a few years ago, this wasn’t a conversation we would normally have. But as society’s stigmas associated with mental health break down, we move forward and seek ways to support those who suffer. A great way to show we care is

cost-cutting strategy. Its eight lecture halls will still be used for seminars and some lectures. However, some students and educators have voiced concerns, saying there are many situations where the new format will not be suitable. The National Tertiary Education Union says the claim traditional lectures do not work is inaccurate and an insult to staff and the work they have done to this point. USC psychology students have launched a petition protesting the changes and more than 600 names have been gathered. A tertiary education source tells Sunshine Coast News it is a major shift away from the norm and there will be some repercussions. “Lectures give students the scaffolding they need,” the source says. “I am unaware of any evidence that shows they are no longer effective. This is tertiary education we are talking about.” USC says it will remain “a predominantly face-to-face university that offers exceptional on-campus learning experiences”. USC Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students) Professor Denise Wood says the university received strong, positive feedback from
he University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) has defended a move away from traditional lectures, saying they had “poor learning outcomes” and its new model will be “a better experience for students and staff”. USC has announced that from 2022, face-to-face or pre-recorded lectures will be replaced with “formative quizzes, podcasts, interviews, simulations, screencasts and recorded discussions, that are equivalent to an hour of traditional lecture”. Students have been told that by delivering this material through the digital learning environment, tutorials and laboratories can focus on developing an enhanced understanding of the learning materials. Practical classes, practicums and internships remain important. “The traditional-style lectures have been demonstrated to have poor learning outcomes whether they are conducted face to face in a lecture theatre or recorded from a desktop,” students have been told. USC says lectures will not be going completely and the changes are about enhancing learning and not part of a
students over the past 18 months of the pandemic about how it had been delivering its programs. “Our students have told us in their course evaluation surveys that they particularly like the flexibility of blended learning [a combination of online and on-campus study activities] as it allows them to combine learning with their work and family responsibilities,” she says. “We are taking the best of what we’ve learned during the pandemic to provide students with what they have asked for via their feedback. Some of our largest and most successful programs, such as Nursing Science, have already successfully transitioned to this approach.” Prof Wood says the changes are part of USC’s ongoing efforts to further improve its teaching quality, which had received five stars from the annual Good Universities Guide for 16 consecutive years. She says students have been encouraged to provide feedback on the changes via a survey conducted by the Student Senate.

Amazon’s new robot can hear, see and follow you around the home, but it’s no Rosey the Robot. Amazon’s version, called Astro, doesn’t cook or clean like the animated character from The Jetsons TV show, but it can check if you left the stove on while you’re out or send an alert if someone enters the house it doesn’t recognise. It uses cameras, sensors and artificial technology to avoid walls or dogs, and Amazon says Astro will only get smarter as time goes on. It does do some housework: snacks or drinks can be placed on its back to be carted to someone across the house. The $1000 robot, which will be sent out to customers later this year, was one of a slew of gadgets Amazon unveiled recently as part of its annual event ahead. Astro, however, stole the show. Amazon executive David Limp asked the 43-centimetre-tall robot to come on stage during the virtual event, then asked it to beatbox. Its round digital eyes close or widen as it does tasks, giving it a humanlike touch. Amazon says a limited number of the Astro will be sold, but didn’t provide a number. Besides the robot, Amazon also unveiled a picture frame-like screen that can be hung on a wall and has Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant built in. The company foresees it going in the kitchen, where users can see recipes, check their schedule or watch TV as they cook. The Seattle-based company also says its Echo listening devices will be put in Disney hotel rooms next year so guests can order towels from room service or ask it the fastest way to get to a theme park. – Joseph Pisani, AAP

Do you remember?
Did you know? The first oranges weren’t orange. The original oranges from South-East Asia were a tangerine-pomelo hybrid, and they were actually green. In fact, oranges in warmer regions like Vietnam and Thailand still stay green through maturity.
Some fungi create zombies, then control their minds. The tropical fungus Ophiocordyceps infects ants’ central nervous systems. By the time it has been in the insects’ bodies for nine days, it has complete control over the host’s movements. It forces the ants to climb trees, then convulse and fall into the cool, moist soil below, where fungi thrive. Once there, the fungus waits until exactly solar noon to force the ant to bite a leaf and kill it.

The therapeutic benefits of kindness In a world gripped by fear and uncertainty, a kindness revolution is taking hold and spreading its wings to embrace everyone who understands the deep healing effects kindness can have on individuals, society and our world. WORDS: Gail Forrer.
his is called good medicine. Yet, it’s not small, white or round, nor does it come via a medical prescription or in a bottle with a few scary alerts regarding possible side-effects. This is a nebulous quality without a singular shape. It comes in numerous forms and can be experienced by everyone. This medicine is free, and it’s known as good old-fashioned kindness – a quality now being promoted as a therapeutic support in the management of mental health illnesses. When something is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate, it can’t help but leave a good taste in your mouth. The same as ‘being kind’ is described as doing intentional, voluntary acts of kindness, it’s a winner in the positive health stakes. Just ask Sunshine Coast resident Nate L’Estrange. Nate founded The Kindness Collective in 2016, saying the inspiration came from a period just after he graduated from biomedical science at the University of the Sunshine Coast and friends and community came to support him in what he says was a difficult time in his life. He says he was shown kindness, and for him that meant an acceptance of his personal struggle. Kindness worked so well as a healer for him, he wanted to share it with others who may be suffering mental

health problems. Mr L’Estrange believes kindness has a very broad definition. “But I think empathy is the foundation of kindness; we need to value each other’s story. He adds that respect is also an integral aspect of kindness, “Sometimes views can become so polarised in social situations, that people forget about respect.” Not only did the experience show Mr L’Estrange the value of friendship and kindness, but it also made him realise that in an area such as the Sunshine Coast, there are a lot of new arrivals who may not have any contacts. To counteract this, he set up events such as yoga classes and hiking trips, where the only payment was for participants to take a kindness card and reach out to others in the community. Today, The Kindness Collective is alive and well, reaching out to schools and organisations to speak about the importance of connection and mental health. “The mission is to build a culture of openness and non-judgement, while encouraging greater empathy, kindness and compassion,” he says. His words correspond with those of medical doctor, author and speaker Dr Deepak Chopra, known globally as a pioneer and expert in integrative medicine and personal transformation. Dr Chopra writes: “If there was one
magical cure for many of the woes of the world, it might be the power of kindness. When the epidemic of stress, anxiety and depression threatens to overload the medical system and impede progress toward a greater sense of common humanity, and when the world can seem

more divided than united, giving and receiving kindness is a way to connect at a deep level. Kindness is a means of acknowledging that the needs of others
are worthy of attention and that actions on their behalf are meaningful.” In May this year, renowned Australian psychologist, social researcher and author Hugh Mackay published his book, The Kindness Revolution where he asks us to think about what sort of society would we like to be and then challenges us to ‘dare to dream of a more loving country – kinder, more compassionate, more co-operative, more respectful, more inclusive, more egalitarian, more harmonious, less cynical.’ Finally, he points to all the displays of kindness during recent natural disasters, weather calamities and COVID that went to support the community’s mental health and asks: “Could we become renowned as a loving country, rather than simply a ‘lucky’ one?” In March 2020, Melbourne-based doctor, educator and researcher Dr Catherine Bennett, started The Kindness Pandemic to help people impacted by COVID. Today, it has more than 550,000 members and is founded on one basic message – be kind to each other. The Facebook site is the area where a vast range of people share how acts of kindness have helped them. A survey of the group members found 86 per cent said that being a members of the Kindness Pandemic Facebook group improved their mental wellbeing. myweeklypreview.com.au

DID YOU KNOW? That when you display kindness, you increase dopamine to the brain, leaving you feeling happier and more energised? Here’s some ways to make yourself and others happy. • Recognise and validate positive changes • When someone cuts you off on the road, gently wave them in – you never know what kind of day they are having • If you hear gossip, change the conversation toward praise and gratitude about the person or situation • Give a compliment to a friend • Make eye contact – we need more connection in the world, so lift your attention from your smartphone and look at everyone you see, offering a smile and acknowledging their presence • Give someone the benefit of the doubt • Offer to listen to a problem • Write a card and send it by mail • Do the dishes when it’s not your turn • Apologise if you need to • Offer to give someone a ride who doesn’t have a car.
Sharing, caring and kindness Sunshine Coast mental health charities and organisations are joining forces to showcase their messages and form new collaborations at the inaugural Nurture Festival, to be held in May 2022. WORDS: Caitlin Zeraffa.
n the spirit of sharing, caring and kindness, the creation of a new festival will see a group of charities acting as one to showcase ways to ‘nurture’ change for the most vulnerable age-group in our society, the 15 to 25-year-olds. The Nurture Festival is an initiative of endED’s Mark Forbes and Nathan Taylor from Comunite’z, and it came about while chatting over a drink. “Over the years we have got to know each other from our charities, and I was saying how competitive it is on the Coast, with some 360 charities, and it’s a shame we don’t do more together. “He mentioned he’d always wanted to put a festival together and that’s how it started. It’s grown
leaps and bounds from there.” Tapping into the hundreds of connections he had made over the years, Mr Forbes says he is receiving a positive response to the festival, which will include live entertainment, guest speakers and rides. “I haven’t had a single negative response yet, he says. “And we already have representatives from many different Coast organisations on the event committee board. The inaugural Nurture Festival, to be held on May 7, 2022, at Mooloola Valley will bring together charities, organisations and professionals and provide a safe platform for youth to reach out and connect and for parents to seek support for themselves or a loved one. “The Nurture Festival isn’t targeting one specific aspect of mental help, like an eating disorder or suicide prevention, it’s tackling all forms of mental health.” Mr Forbes says it will also be an opportunity for professionals, sporting clubs, schools, and tertiary education facilities to connect, create new relationships and communicate with each other.
“It is a festival for the community built by the community,” he says. “With the festival, we’ll have everybody in that space. People looking for help can walk in and go it’s all here; I can put the laptop down and it’s all here. “Anyone from Brisbane to Noosa who wants to be involved in mental health in the festival and have a presence can be part of it. “What we see the festival doing, is connecting people together so they can see what each other provides and they can start to form their own networks.” Mr Forbes says the event, which will cost around $260,000 to start up, already has support from Sunshine Coast Council and interest from the federal government, with Member for Fisher Andrew Wallace leading the charge to gain funding. A fundraiser will be held on October 12 at Mooloolaba Surf Club and the festival is looking for sponsors. A website for the event is currently being built and will launch in the coming weeks. For enquiries email firstname.lastname@example.org.
THE POSITIVE FEEDBACK LOOP The Australian government website Health Direct refers to a ‘positive feedback loop’ and says research shows this comes from a simple equation: “The more you give, the more positive you feel. This, in turn, fuels greater happiness”. Acts of kindness and compassion can increase wellbeing, contribute to healthy relationships and improve self-esteem.
Furthermore, there are now many studies
to have found that kindness, compassion and giving are associated with: • improved happiness • good mental health • a stronger immune system • reduced anxiety, stress and depression • improved relationships • a longer life.

A busy stretch of the Bruce Highway will receive a high-tech boost, with design complete for the installation of additional Smart Motorways technology between the Pine River and Caloundra Road. The Smart Motorways project is part of the 15-year, $13-billion Bruce Highway Upgrade Program. The technology includes ramp signals, variable speed limit and message signs, vehicle detection systems and CCTV cameras to monitor and respond to changing road conditions in real time. State Member for Caloundra Jason Hunt says wireless traffic sensors will be installed at priority locations along the 60-kilometre stretch to monitor vehicle travel times, traffic flow and speed. Major works are expected to begin early 2022.
WISHLIST FUN RUN RETURNS The Sunshine Coast is marching ahead with fundraising efforts for the eagerly awaited Wishlist Fun Run on October 17. Now in its third year, after being cancelled in 2020, more than 500 walkers and runners are expected to descend on the Lake Kawana circuit and run either 2.5, five or 10 kilometres. Wishlist events and fundraising manager Lisa Wilson says the previous two fun runs have raised more than $30,000. “All the epic fundraising done by the local community is directed back into the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service, with this year’s event going towards our latest ambitious project – Wishlist Centre,” Ms Wilson says. “This annual community event is a favourite with live entertainment, massages, face painting, jumping castle, fresh fruit, barbecue and drinks.” Registrations are open for individuals, schools and corporate teams at wishlistfundraising.org.au. Anyone who registered last year can contact Wishlist to oganise a place in this year’s event.
URGENT HOMES NEEDED FOR PETS
CLIMATE CHANGE SURVEY
A well-known animal rescue centre is in urgent need of foster carers as a result of the current rental shortage. 4 Paws Animal Rescue has successfully rehomed thousands of animals over the past 15 years, but president Julie Penlington say the shelter is currently facing an animal influx as a result of the crisis. “Recently we have had an influx of cats coming into 4 Paws, largely due to rental stress and we are in desperate need of foster homes for them,” she says. “To compound this, some of our existing carers have fallen victim to the rental crisis themselves, meaning we now have to find new places for the animals they are caring for.” Anyone willing and able to foster a cat or dog can visit 4pawsanimalrescue.org.au.
Sunshine Coast Council, in partnership with Noosa Shire Council, has received a Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ) grant to pilot the first phase of the ‘Queensland Climate Resilient Councils (QCRC) Climate Risk Management Framework’. “To get started on this important project, Council is seeking input through a survey to establish a baseline understanding of the community’s collective thoughts on climate change,” Councillor Maria Suarez says. “The survey results will inform the creation of a toolkit to inform our community on ways to mitigate and adapt to projected climate risks in the future.” Visit sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au before October 24.
USC LECTURER WINS MAJOR AWARD A University of the Sunshine Coast social media lecturer has been recognised for her innovation in embedding real-world experience into her teaching with a major award from the Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities. Senior lecturer in public relations Dr Karen Sutherland received the Education, Innovation and Employability award from the Council, who said Dr Sutherland had demonstrated outstanding work with significant impact among a very competitive field. The Council commended the suite of work-integrated learning opportunities she had developed for students in USC’s School of Business and Creative Industries, ranging from real-world experience with large international companies to significant local organisations. “Engaging with businesses as part of these initiatives has also helped small business owners gain social media support and knowledge and we are very grateful for their involvement in this learning process,” Dr Sutherland says.

HELP PROTECT NATIVE WILDLIFE Crime Stoppers Queensland, Wildlife Warriors and Australia Zoo have announced an Australianfirst crime-fighting partnership to help protect native wildlife from unlawful criminal activity. The new state-wide campaign was prompted by the recent discovery of a crocodile that had been illegally shot in the Wenlock River, in Cape York Peninsula. Wildlife Warriors, Australia Zoo and Crime Stoppers Queensland will offer a significant reward, ranging from $1000 to $10,000, for anyone providing information leading to the prosecution of criminals responsible for wildlife abuse. If you have any information about crimes against wildlife, please contact Crime Stoppers Queensland on 1800 333 000 or crimestoppersqld.com.au.
A vital link for the Sunshine Coast to improve safety and efficiency along the Bruce Highway, and the region’s largest ever infrastructure project, is now complete. The $932-million project has seen the Bruce Highway upgraded to six lanes between Caloundra Road and the Sunshine Motorway including major upgrades to both interchanges and a new two-way service road for local traffic between Steve Irwin Way and Tanawha Tourist Drive. “This project is the first of several current major upgrades to the highway across the region,” Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey says. During four years of construction, more than 7000 people worked on the site.
SUSTAINABLE CABIN’S SCANDI STYLE A new cabin is bringing a touch of luxury Scandinavian-style design to the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Scandi at Maleny is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom modular cabin offering views across the hinterland. Owners Pete Coorey and Dee Montalva say the focus for the boutique accommodation is sustainability, and they have taken great care to minimise their environmental footprint. “Scandi is a modular build, and this alone makes our cabin more sustainable from the get-go,” Ms Montalva says. myweeklypreview.com.au

Our export stars Two Sunshine Coast companies kicking goals in their industries are in the running for state export awards.
wo Sunshine Coast companies, one a prime beef producer and distributor to 35 global markets and another that creates and services iconic aquariums across the world, are vying for top gong at this year’s state export awards. Kilcoy Global Foods (KGF) and Kunda Park-based Advanced Aquarium Technologies (AAT) have been named finalists in the Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards 2021. The local businesses joined 34 other companies across 13 categories, chosen from 160 high-calibre applicants. Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson congratulated both KGF and AAT on their achievements and says their export
Dean Goode, Kilcoy Global Foods success highlights the great business environment and opportunities that exist on the Sunshine Coast. “Exporting is one of the keys to future economic prosperity on the Sunshine Coast and our Regional Economic Development Strategy aims for 20 per cent of locally produced goods and services to be available for export by 2033,” Mayor Jamieson says. “To help achieve this goal, council delivers a Local to Global program incorporating export programs and networking events, access to exhibitions and missions and pathways to State and Federal contacts and programs. “KGF and AAT are outstanding examples of the contemporary and
innovative businesses that operate on the Sunshine Coast and have shown great resilience throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.” KGF President Australian Division Jiah Falcke says despite the challenges of the last 12 months, the Sunshine Coast-based KGF team have developed innovative new products to strengthen the operation, along with growing its export markets for prime Queensland beef. “From our headquarters at Birtinya, KGF manages the production, distribution, and export of eight million cartons of premium beef annually to more than 35 global markets,” Mr Falcke says. “KGF is also a major supplier to Australian supermarkets, food wholesalers,
fine dining establishments and popular family restaurants such as McDonalds. “Between our corporate office at Birtinya and the Kilcoy processing plant, we employ more than 1600 people from 53 nationalities, and being judged a finalist in the export awards is a credit to their dedication and commitment.” For almost 25 years, AAT has helped create and service some of the world’s most iconic and spectacular aquariums including Whitsunday Airport Heart Reef Aquarium, Proserpine, Cairns Aquarium, Daydream Island Resort and Living Reef, Whitsundays in Queensland and The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne. Winners in each of the 13 award categories go in the running to be named Queensland Exporter of the Year. They also gain automatic entry to the Australian Export & Investment Awards, held by Austrade in November. The Premier of Queensland’s Export Awards 2021 will be held at City Hall in Brisbane on October 6. Local hi-tech aerospace business Helimods took out the Premier of Queensland’s Award for Regional Exporter in 2019.

Win a team effort for FAN CEO Being named Outstanding Business Woman of the Year wasn’t part of Emma Greenhatch’s career plan. But the award winner wouldn’t have it any other way. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
IMAGE: EMPIRE ART PHOTOGRAPHY
hen Emma Greenhatch thinks about her career, a poem comes to mind. It’s The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost and it describes the desire to follow the path that feels right at the time, rather than thinking too far ahead. Ms Greenhatch says she likes an unplanned life and this has led her down many and varied career paths that have in some ways all been interlinked. “I’m never going to be the person who says, ‘where will I be in five years’

time?’ and execute a path to get there,” she says. “I’m led by what feels right.” When she moved to the Sunshine Coast six years ago from Victoria, she had no idea what she was going to do for work. Last week, she stood on stage at The Events Centre, Caloundra and accepted the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network Award for Outstanding Business Woman of the Year for the groundbreaking work she has done with the Food and Agribusiness Network (FAN). In six short years, Ms Greenhatch went from strolling on the beach wondering what her next move would be, to being the CEO of FAN, which represents more than 320 members from across the food value chain in the greater Sunshine Coast region (which includes Gympie, Noosa, the Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay). As often seems to happen in her life, it was a serendipitous event that led her to a job heading our region’s largest food industry advocacy group, just when she was thinking of leaving the food business. She had spent nine years working in the food industry in a number of senior roles for the Victorian government. This included two years working with a number of government departments to implement a new food policy framework, creating Australia’s largest and most successful inbound trade mission, which

PROFILE resulted in $100 million in new food and beverage exports for Victoria, and facilitating the establishment of Victoria’s first representative group for the organic industry. Before that, she had worked as a marketing officer for the City of Melbourne and before that – in one of her more unusual positions – she had worked on a seahorse farm in Ireland. Having completed a Bachelor of Arts in Asian Studies at the University of Western Australia, Ms Greenhatch found herself working for the world’s first large-scale seahorse facility in Tasmania straight out of uni, helping to develop the Asian market for seahorses. “They wanted to sell these seahorses for Chinese medicine, but the Chinese wouldn’t have a bar of them because they were captive bred and not wild caught,” she says. “They had 20,000 seahorses and they employed me to develop a market for them. We sold them all around the world to large-scale public aquariums, which led to a few years of tripping around the globe and then led to the job in Ireland.” After such an adventurous life, it wasn’t a difficult decision for Ms Greenhatch to up sticks and move to the Sunshine Coast, where she knew no one. Her and husband Brett Flemming’s
daughter Poppy was six at the time and had suffered from asthma her entire life. During a trip to the Sunshine Coast, they found her asthma cleared up and they decided it was time to move. “I had no idea what I was going to do,” she says. “My son Quinn hadn’t even started kindergarten and I thought, I’m going to take my foot off the pedal for a bit, smell the roses and walk on the beautiful beaches and decide what comes next. A few months in, I was given an opportunity by Food Innovation Australia
“I’ve never been in such an open and supportive community as the Sunny Coast” to write a book on the top 50 food innovations at the time. One of the companies that had won a spot was Gourmet Garden.” Ms Greenhatch decided to visit the Gourmet Garden premises in Palmwoods and interview founder Jacqueline Wilson-Smith, a decision that would
lead her down her new career path. “I thought, oh my god, Gourmet Garden is so big and it’s in this little village. I couldn’t believe how much depth there was in the food industry in this region. I’d been heavily engaged in regions like the Barossa, Clare Valley, Margaret River, the Hunter Valley. All those areas we know have massive food production and are heavily focused on food tourism, but the Sunny Coast wasn’t on my radar. I’d never heard of it from a food perspective.” Ms Wilson-Smith invited Ms Greenhatch to a FAN event, where she quickly found herself among likeminded people. Food producers who would ordinarily be competing were instead collaborating. “I left that night thinking, ‘wow, there’s something really special happening here and I want to be part of it. Fortunately, I was able to get a position on the board and was a director for six months. It was a great way to learn about the organisation’s history. “I grew up in Tasmania and my parents grew all our own food. Growing up in a small state like Tassie, you work with other people because you have to. Communities are really strong there and really connected. “Of all the places I have lived and worked around Australia and overseas,
I’ve never been in such an open and supportive community as the Sunny Coast. I still don’t know what’s in the water here. I know more people in six years here than I’ve probably known across the rest of my career – and that’s pretty amazing.” Ms Greenhatch says she was shocked to win her Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network award. “I was always that person who had a huge fear of public speaking and would rather die than do it,” she laughs. “But this award isn’t really about me. I wouldn’t be here if all those people I’ve connected with and brought into the journey hadn’t come along. It just wouldn’t have happened. You can’t build a community on your own. For me, that’s why I feel like I’ve been successful. “I’ve given lots of shout-outs to Roz White and Zoe Sparks who nominated me,” she says. “No way would I have been standing up there without their nominations. I’ve been inspired by them so much over the years; they’ve done so much for the region, helping shine a spotlight on our food producers. “Winning the award is a very big honour and I’m very grateful to so many people. One of the messages I share is that there’s no run sheet for life. I think it’s what you do with opportunity or adversity as it comes along.”

Magicians’ naked ambition Don’t let the bare abs and missing pants fool you, The Naked Magicians are seriously good at their craft, and they’re bringing their show to Caloundra. WORDS: Leigh Robshaw.
t was a date with a pretty girl that prompted Mike Tyler (above right) to ditch his bank job and become a magician. He was working in finance in Brisbane when he decided to spice up the date by learning a magic trick. As fate would have it, he “stuffed up” the magic trick and didn’t get another date. But it did prompt him to develop another interest, one that would take him and his mate Christopher Wayne around the world performing as The Naked Magicians. “I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do out of school, so I studied marketing and advertising and it was when I was working
at a bank doing home loans for people that I started getting into magic. I loved it so much. I’d approve someone’s home loan and when they came back for a second or third home loan, I’d say, ‘while you guys are here, do you want to see a card trick?’ “It was my obsession for a while and within a year, I was out of the bank and doing magic full-time.” Mr Tyler and Mr Wayne were both working as full-time magicians when they met at Riverfire in Brisbane in 2012 and quickly hit it off. Mr Wayne was the first Australian magician to have his own TV show, Channel 10’s Toasted TV. The two
teamed up and formed The Naked Magicians, taking their show to more than 300 cities across the globe, including New York, Las Vegas and London. They’ve appeared in front of 50 million people on prime-time US TV, making them Australia’s most successful magic export act. They’ve now returned to Australia for their Homecoming Tour and their upcoming shows at The Events Centre, Caloundra will be the final performances of what the HuffPost has dubbed “the wildest night ever”. “Full disclosure – you do see our naked wands,” says Mr Tyler says.
But it’s not as if they need a gimmick – both are incredible magicians and have spent many years perfecting their craft. “The nudity is a good misdirection for the audience,” Mr Tyler says. “They’re wondering if they’re actually going to see ‘it’ and are too busy looking at some abs or butt. It allows us to get away with sleight of hand, but it makes it more difficult because we don’t have places to hide things. “We always say, good magicians don’t need sleeves and great magicians don’t need pants. We do magic with our sleeves up and our pants down. It’s a high-energy show full of comedy. It’s not high-brow – it’s just a couple of Brisbane guys making a lot of sex jokes while delivering magic and a bit of eye candy. “We really have the best fun on stage. We’re just two best mates having an amazing time, having a laugh and getting our willies out. How can you not enjoy that? That fact we’ve been able to make it into a career has been such a blessing.”
The Naked Magicians perform on Friday, October 15 and Saturday, October 16 at 8pm at Caloundra Events Centre. It is a strictly 18-plus event. For more information, visit theeventscentre.com.au/product/ thenakedmagicians.

Business, the community and the council have serious concerns about a state government plan. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.
he state government has been urged to hold a public forum to detail its plans to establish a “youth jail” in Caloundra as community concerns escalate. This comes as business leaders fear the facility will tarnish the area’s reputation as a safe, family holiday destination by creating the perception it has an alarmingly high youth crime rate. It also follows a unanimously supported motion at a Sunshine Coast Council meeting in late July opposing the location of the facility. The State appears to be pushing on with plans to “repurpose” the Caloundra Watchhouse as a 28- to 30-bed youth remand centre, where young people accused of crimes and denied bail could

Caloundra no place for a ‘youth jail’ Division two councillor Terry Landsberg spend a month or more awaiting trial. It is expected to cost $16.4 million. Thousands of residents have signed a petition against what has been described by resident groups as a “youth jail”. Councillor Terry Landsberg says he has sent a request to Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs senior executive director Michael Drane requesting a public forum, adding this follows “overwhelming” feedback from community groups and individuals worried about the plan and the way it is being advanced with little consultation. He says an invite-only meeting between some community groups and departmental officials in late September has not eased the tension. “This is all about an unsuitable
youth remand centre will “tarnish” Caloundra’s reputation. He says it is important to note the facility is not a result of local crime statistics and he wants further transparency from the state government on how it will operate. “We don’t want people to think they are coming to a high crime area. That’s really critical,” Mr Shadforth says. “If you look at the crime stats from Caloundra there’s no need to have this facility for crimes on the Sunshine Coast, or in Caloundra. Our youth crime rate isn’t at a point where we need this facility.” Mr Shadforth says he welcomes investment in the region but says he would rather see more police resources than a youth remand centre. Caloundra MP Jason Hunt recently moved to allay concerns with leaflets titled The Facts – forget the spin, being distributed in surrounding suburbs by volunteers. In the leaflet, he says the centre will remain secure and “young people are not permitted to leave and will remain closed off from the public”. “The centre will only be used when Queensland’s three youth detention centres are at capacity and space is needed to house young people on remand temporarily.” Mr Hunt’s leaflet says the facility will not be staffed by police, but by Youth Justice personnel.
location that we’ve identified and there are a host of different concerns we’ve raised,” he says. “Nothing in that meeting … has changed my view and the view of people that attended. This is not a good fit for our town.” Cr Landsberg says the community must have access to a forum before a 15-day submission period comes into effect. “A sign will go up for a proposed works order out the front of the watchhouse and it will be up there for 15 working days. Once that sign goes up, that’s a period when the community can put their submissions in.” No date has yet been confirmed for when this period will begin, but Cr Landsberg believes it will be soon. Earlier this month, a spokesperson for the Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs said community engagement regarding changing the existing Caloundra Watchhouse to a youth remand facility occurred in July and August. The departmental spokesperson says feedback from community engagement will form part of an Environment Assessment Report (EAR) and be used to inform the final planning decision to be made by the Minister for State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning. Caloundra Chamber of Commerce president Michael Shadforth fears the

Artist Colin Chandler and his trusty assistant Bella
RIDING THE ARTISTIC WAVE Robbed of his ability to surf, Colin Chandler still expresses his love of the ocean through his art. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.
Moffat Beach man with a love for the ocean is keeping his passion of surfing alive through his artwork, which has been featured on stages around the world with The Beach Boys. Colin Chandler, affectionately known as ‘Col’ or ‘Colphin’, began surfing 50 years ago, but after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) was forced to swap his board for a brush. “Some years ago I was diagnosed with a version of MS called primary progressive
MS. In my case it has resulted in a significant loss of mobility,” he says. “Despite the limitations caused by the MS, I still have my art.” Gaining recognition around the world, his biggest claim to fame was when The Beach Boys asked to feature his work as part of their 2016 world tour. “It was a huge privilege to have my work blown up and featuring as part of the backdrop for The Beach Boys in 167 cities around the world,” he says. “I still feel a buzz every time I think about it.”

Mr Chandler’s love for the sea translates into each painting, which is painted from the perspective of the surfer and is inspired by a Japanese style of art. “A lot of my work is inspired by the Ukiyo-e genre of Japanese woodblock art made famous by Hokusai. He loved painting waves,” Mr Chandler says. “While there are many great seascape and beach scene artists, I tend to focus on painting waves from a surfer’s perspective – from inside the barrel looking out. “I also love capturing massive ocean storms in all their moods.” Mr Chandler says painting the ocean has become a therapy for living with his condition. “When I am painting the sea, I am still surfing and still in the ocean. I don’t feel like I have MS anymore. “I still feel connected to the thing I love – the sea. “Things like MS can rob people of purpose and direction sometimes,” he adds. “In my case my art is my purpose and direction.” Unable to surf, Mr Chandler is still able to enjoy a paddle using what he calls the “green turtle technique”. “I am lucky enough to have a surfing support worker and can still paddle out to sea, but that’s after crawling into the ocean and then I crawl back out again. I call it my green turtle technique.” After 50 years enjoying the ocean, Mr Chandler is holding his exhibition, Our Ocean, to raise money to protect it into the future. “All of the profits are being donated to the Australian Marine Conservation Society to help with marine conservation – an area I am passionate about,” Mr Chandler says. Our Ocean is on now at the House and Garden Art gallery, 81 The Esplanade, Mooloolaba until October 23.

Our partnership with Sunny Street will support the region, and through TAFE student placements, hospital staff, patients and families will benefit from a range of extra services plus help keep operational costs of Wishlist Centre to a minimum. Aligning our brand with a marketplace competitor is always a risky venture, but one we believe delivers on our promise to make the local hospital experience better for you and your family.

enormous passion and outstanding delivery”. “Our judges were overwhelmed with the outstanding talent these students brought to the floor, making picking an overall winner extremely difficult,” he says. “Our club would like to thank parents and teaches for supporting their children in participating in this extracurricular activity, our club members for their participation and support of this amazing project and all the students who competed. Well done Bli Bli School, students, teachers and fellow Lions you are all winners.”
A NATURAL PLACE TO SUSTAIN A COMMUNITY
ROLL UP YOUR SLEEVES FOR A GOOD CAUSE A Mooloolaba man with a rare blood type recently clocked up 100 donations to the blood bank as he does his part to help save lives. Dave Scullion has been donating plasma, often referred to as “liquid life” every fortnight at the Australian Red Cross centre in Maroochydore. He says his father used to donate, and after learning he had a versatile blood type, Mr Scullion was inspired him to do the same. “I have a rare blood type, AB-, which means my plasma is considered as universal, meaning it can be given to just about anyone,” Mr Scullion says. “This
Last month Maroochy North Shore Lions hosted its Junior Public Speaking Competition at Bli Bli State School. Organisers Clare Reed and Robyn Harm liaised with the school to secure students to participate, and Kiera, Violet, Abbey, Ginger, Clara, Charlee and Dakota each brought something unique and interesting with their speeches, which were centred around the environment and sustainability. The overall winner was young Clara. Club president Greg Leonard says the students exhibited “meticulous preparation,
allows plasma transfusions to be given immediately as it is not necessary to test if a patient’s blood type is compatible.” With plans to continue donating, Mr Scullion is encouraging other Sunshine Coast residents to roll up their sleeves. “I think it is extremely important as there is a direct effect from the donation to assist people in a wide range of medical situations,” he says. “The message I would give other people is that it is an extremely easy procedure, takes about 90 minutes in total, and is a rewarding experience as you know you are helping someone else.” Visit lifeblood.com.au
The Sunshine Coast’s newest community facility, Beerwah Community Meeting Place, is now open. The community space was constructed thanks to $1.65 million from the Queensland Government’s Unite and Recover Community Stimulus Package. Deputy mayor and division one councillor Rick Baberowski says he is thrilled with its innovative and sustainable design. “The Beerwah and district community love this civic precinct and have been looking forward to having a larger community space,” Cr Baberowski says. “Inspired by the natural environment that surrounds us, the Beerwah Community
Meeting Place’s design takes into account the winter sun, summer shade, natural breezes and landscape to ensure all who use this space are comfortable.” Some of the Meeting Place’s sustainability measures include using recycled and locally sourced hardwood, plantation pine lining and other lowmaintenance and durable building materials. The 3.15-kilowatt solar system, which can be expanded in the future, will offset some of the building’s energy use. The Beerwah Community Meeting Place is next to Beerwah Library at 25 Peachester Road, Beerwah and is available for bookings.

CLEAN BEAUTY A WINNER A Sunshine Coast woman inspired to start a business creating ‘clean’ makeup after losing her father to cancer has been recognised at the 2021 AusMumpreneur of the Year Awards with a gold, silver and bronze. Stacey Hollands founded Lust Minerals in 2014 with
a mission to provide women worldwide with an alternative to synthetic and chemical-based beauty products. “After losing my dad to cancer at a young age, it really made me realise we don’t get a second chance and that chemicals can lead to so many health issues,” Ms Hollands says. “I was inspired to create an Australian clean beauty range that is both affordable and high quality. “It was important that I created a range that offers real results, superior performance and is cleaner and better for our health.” After years of hard work, research and development, Ms Hollands launched her Warana-based company, which includes makeup and skincare products, by the time she was 25. At the recent virtual AusMumpreneur awards in September, Ms Holland won gold for Beauty Business of the Year, silver in the Women will Change the World category and bronze in AusMumpreneur of the Year. “What I love most about being a mumpreneur is that I can truly design a life of meaningful work with making a difference in so many beautiful people’s lives and I value quality family time and the life I have truly envisioned for myself,” she says. “Every day I wake up with so much purpose and passion. Being able to teach my kids and allow them to also lead a life of so much love and purpose is what I’m most passionate about. “I feel so honoured and privileged to be a part of such an inspiring, uplifting and supportive group of women and mums in business.” Visit lustminerals.com.au
Joshua and Kiana were among the Caloundra State School students to write a book in a day
YOUNG WRITERS SHINE IN A DAY Some of the Sunshine Coast’s promising young writers have written a book in a day. Year six students at Caloundra State School participated in the Write a Book in a Day competition, writing a chapter book from start to finish in a marathon effort. Caloundra State School relieving principal Brendan Bopf says the school has some talented and keen writers across all year levels and this competition was a great opportunity for Year six students. “We had 10 students work together to produce a book in a day,” he says. “It’s a great opportunity for our keen writers to work together in a team to come up with a story they can be proud of.” Their book will be judged with others from Queensland and the Northern Territory before being delivered to sick children in hospital by The Kids’ Cancer Project. The Caloundra team, called The Lighthouse Legends, is fundraising for the charity. Go to writeabookinaday.com and search ‘The Lighthouse Legends’ to donate.

LIBRA (SEP 24-OCT 23)
SCORPIO (OCT 24-NOV 22)
The sun, Mars and Mercury are transiting through your sign, which highlights your charm and creativity. But Mercury is in retrograde mode (until October 18) which increases your tendency to be indecisive and sit on the fence.
On Friday, the sun and Jupiter encourage you to reach out and help a family member. Then the sun squares powerful Pluto (your ruler) on Sunday, which boosts your temperamental streak. Keep your options open and try to be flexible.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV 23-DEC 21)
CAPRICORN (DEC 22-JAN 20)
AQUARIUS (JAN 21-FEB 19)
PISCES (FEB 20-MAR 20)
Prepare to inspire others with your high spirits and contagious enthusiasm. You’re at your buoyant best on Friday, when the sun and Jupiter boost confidence levels and put extra wind in your Sagittarian sails. Patience is the key.
The mid-week Venus/Saturn connection is promising for confidence levels, long-term love, a partnership and planning your future direction. A personal problem has got you in a spin, but do your best to sort out any ongoing dramas.
You’re keen to expand your world via foreign friendships and international contacts. If you link up with like-minded people, then it will open new doors of opportunity. Expect the sparks to fly on the weekend.
Expect flashes of creative and spiritual inspiration on Friday, when your imagination and intuition kick in. The rest of the week looks intense, as retrograde Mercury stirs up submerged secrets Try to keep things in perspective and learn to let go.

VIRGO (AUG 24-SEP 23) This week Mercury (your patron planet) is in retrograde mode. The more unreliable, unpredictable and demanding others are, the more you will shift into finicky, obsessive mode. You’ll feel less stressed if you try to relax and keep things in perspective.
LEO (JUL 24-AUG 23) Mercury is reversing through your communication zone, and there’s a challenging square between Pluto and the sun, so try to avoid online arguments. If you are the person in charge, then resist the urge to be bossy.

There could be cross words between you and a relative, as you seem to be heading in different directions. Remember the good times you’ve enjoyed together and search for common ground. Things will look a lot brighter in the morning.

CANCER (JUN 22-JUL 23)
When it comes to communication and conversation, you’ve certainly got the Gemini gift of the gab. But Mercury (your patron planet) is in retrograde motion (until October 18) so be careful you don’t blurt out remarks that you later regret.
WORD STEP: SWORE SHORE SHARE SHARK SHANK THANK
GEMINI (MAY 22-JUN 21)
It will be very easy to say the wrong thing to the wrong person, as Mercury is retrograde. Making controversial comments will just land you in hot water, so think things through and choose your words wisely.

TAURUS (APR 21-MAY 21)
This week, there’s the potential for explosive sun-Pluto power struggles with an authority figure or loved one (especially on Sunday). The situation is further complicated by Mercury being retrograde. So try to communicate with extra care.

DON’T WASTE A SECOND
Jane Stephens says we must live, learn and strive to make the most of each day we are granted.
Ashley Robinson’s dog George takes a turn for the worse, prompting a trip to the 24-hour vet and causing a moment of mild panic.
lite Noosa triathlete Alexa Leary was catastrophically injured in July after she clipped the wheel of another cyclist. Her story has inspired a national initiative – Move for Lex. Started by her family, the aim is to encourage people to get out and move for those who can’t. The initiative has raised an incredible $80,000 for the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Health Foundation. It is the same hospital my beautiful daughter-in-law, aged just 30, will be in for many weeks. Always a gutsy, sporty type, Lucy has endured the most major surgeries imaginable to clear her body of bowel cancer and is deep in the fight of her life via an unthinkably painful, difficult path. She and my son cling to the threads of their life and hold on for the day they can weave them back together. They know it will never be the same, but face their future with love and courage. They do know that life is so very precious. Their three-year-old dynamo son reminds them of that. Learn because you can. Do because
you can. Move because you can. A group of friends and I are moving this weekend, in part because we can and Lex and Lucy cannot. We will swim, ride and run in a triathlon, giving it our very best shots. We are all mature aged and while we are all active, triathlon was new to us all until this year. We know what it is to sweat before dawn. We are doing it because we can. My friend and academic mentor, the late USC Associate Professor Stephen Lamble, shared insight when he was told his cancer was terminal 12 years ago. “It’s strange to know what you are going to die of and I thought I would have this sudden moment of realisation about why we are here,” he said. “But while it wasn’t a sudden thing, I do know: the meaning of life is life – living it every day. It’s that simple.” You can’t un-hear such wisdom. So live, learn and strive we all must, particularly when we have brains that fire and bodies that move. Brilliant Anglo-American poet WH Auden said: “You owe it to all of us to get on with what you are good at.”
Jane Stephens is a USC journalism lecturer, media commentator and writer.
wrote a column a few weeks ago about my new dog George, who is a kelpie cattle dog crossed with a highly intelligent alien? But he is not as smart as he thinks he is, as the other night he started coughing and dry retching like a two-packet-a-day smoker. This went on all Saturday night, and I had a 3.30am start the next morning at work seeing off our Straddie Camp teenagers. When I left he was looking decidedly unhappy, but appeared only to have the cough, as he was moving around okay. About 8.30, old mate sent me a text to say I need to take him to the vet as its getting worse. So I go home, pick him up and take him to North Coast Emergency 24-hour vet. Now, ‘emergency’ and ‘24-hour’ in the same sentence means to me $$$$$, so George probably needs to get a job was what I was thinking as I drove him out there. In saying that, we got awesome service, apart from the exposed aggregate concrete in front of the building that he wouldn’t walk on. Just to digress, for some reason when we walk, he will cross the road away from any driveways with exposed pebbles or
big tiles, as they mustn’t have them in Mars, where part of him comes from. So he has swallowed something he shouldn’t have and has to stay in to see if they can suck it out and I go back to work, not before handing my credit card over. So at this stage, both George and I are in pain together. I go back after the successful operation and pick him up and am greeted with the fact that the quote they gave me was actually way over what it actually cost, so I was sort of happy about my dog’s wellbeing and my bank account. I did wonder if being conditioned for the worst is not a bad strategy, but in all seriousness, I was only really worried about George. When I paid the bill, the lovely lady asked me did I think it was expensive and I replied, “Hey you are talking to a bloke who’s wife once paid thousands for a hysterectomy for her bird, so this is fine.” To top off my day, I went back to work to lock my office and as I switched the lights out, I noticed a snack on my colleague’s desk. It looked like beetroot crisps, so I grabbed a mouthful. It was actually meat woofs – dog food. What a great day.

HOLY HOT CHIPS Sami Muirhead praises the humble hot chip’s anti-stress benefits and marvels at actor Jennifer Aniston’s ability to stop at one.
hat is the ultimate torture and possibly stupidity in life? Eating a single hot chip and feeling satisfied. Jennifer Aniston has lit up the internet after admitting in an interview she eats one single chip when she’s stressed. Yes, just one! This stresses me just thinking about it. The 52- year old’s answer was irritating but also impressive. “A chip,” said Jennifer. “Crunch, crunch, crunch. I am good at having just one. I know it’s so annoying.” What kind of animal can stop at one chip? Hot chips are one of my vices in life. I recently dined at a flash restaurant and they served a bowl of the hottest and crunchiest thin hot chips in a fancy white bowl with a huge piece of tender steak, and a salad with French dressing. It would be my last meal on death row. I recently had hot chips served with crumbled feta cheese on them. To die for. Have you had vinegar on your chips with freshly crumbed fish? And what can beat chicken salt? A guilty pleasure I have dabbled in for three decades is to drive through the KFC lane and get a carton of hot chips and just sit in my car with me, myself and I, and eat the steaming hot
strips of holiness. Now that is a party of one that I am happy to be invited to. It’s the solitude of my car with golden and crisp chips on the outside that are fluffy on the inside. Sometimes I could cry when I hear that first teasing crunch of the chip goodness. It’s a chip strip tease of my senses. If you are cooking at home, things are important on your journey to perfection when it comes to the potato chip – your choice of potato, your choice of oil, and your choice of salt. Personally, I love a Sebago potato cut into strips and deep-fried in my body weight of vegetable oil. The bible that is the Women’s Weekly cookbook states you must slice Desiree chips and throw them in ice-cold water before cooking them in peanut oil – twice! My grandma used to serve homemade round slices of hot chips snuggled next to a steak. It was the best of dinners. So be thankful we do not have to live up to Jennifer’s Anniston’s perfect image and go eat some hot chips today. Smother them in gravy, vinegar, tomato sauce, chicken salt or whatever is your poison and enjoy every single delicious sinful bite. Let me tell you, when I am stressed I do not eat a single chip. I eat my body weight in them.

WALKING IS GOOD FOR YOUR SOUL
hy is walking good for the soul? Walking can improve our mood by releasing feel-good endorphins. It can also help take our minds away from the weekly grind. Walking is a great stress reducer. Get outside and take in some
vitamin D and allow yourself some ‘me’ time. Walking is the hottest holiday activity in Australia right now. Yep, that slow easy manoeuvre of putting one foot in front of the other. Of course, we are not talking about strolling to the shops. We mean

WHY WALKING 10,000 STEPS WORKS Ten thousand steps a day is often recommended by health experts as a good level of activity for a healthy adult. It equates to about eight kilometres, or one hour and 40 minutes walking, depending on your stride length and walking speed. If that sounds overwhelming, don’t worry – you don’t have to do all the steps in one walk. You will naturally accumulate steps through your day-to-day activities, but to reach the 10,000-step goal, you will likely need to do a 30-minute walk (or the equivalent in other exercise) as well. So why bother? We know walking burns calories, but there are plenty of other benefits of walking more. The Heart Foundation says walking can: • boost your energy • aid relaxation and clear your mind • provide a sense of achievement and satisfaction • improve confidence and mood • help manage your weight • promote healthier blood cholesterol and blood pressure • build stronger bones and muscles • reduce your risk of heart attack.

DO YOU KNOW WORDS HAVE POWER?
Yogita Ridgley shares a moment that changed her life. One afternoon after work, I walked into my daughter’s bedroom and saw her writing on the bedroom wall with her lipstick. “Hey, hey, stop it. What do you think you are doing with that, are you stupid?” I said those words to my four-year-old: ”‘Are you stupid?” Take a moment to think about this. These words have power. Where did they come from? Better question – where do words come from? Words come from our emotions, when they are triggered. In this case, the emotion of anger was triggered. Why did the emotion of anger translate to “are you stupid”? When I was six years old, my English teacher shouted in front of
the whole class: “ARE YOU STUPID YOGITA?”, when I spelled fear, faer. This was a regular occurrence because of my dyslexia. The inner dialogue, or self-talk that we have with ourselves is most powerful. Words have power, when said with conviction. They can change a person’s belief system. It can change the course of a person’s future. I realised I was repeating the pattern, by calling my daughter stupid. I know my daughter is not stupid. By catching my actions that will result in my daughter having issues in the future, I take responsibility to change and use my words wisely. Our past has taught us many things, some good and some not so good. Our present is our chance to undo the not so good. Working on personal growth and self-development is the best present you can give yourself and your children.

BIOELECTRICITY IS YOUR DEFENCE
hrough life, our bodies can become out of balance and weaken our immune system. Maintaining a strong immune system is our best preventative medicine for protecting us against viruses, colds and disease. Environmental factors such as living in uncertain times, lifestyle, diet, lack of exercise or sleep, stress, trauma, or injury can create blockages in our meridian lines that impact blood and energy (Qi) flow. In traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that this can present as physical symptoms. Our human body is energy. We use energy to regenerate, maintain healthy cells and communicate within a complex
system. Without energy, there is no life. Bioelectric Meridian Therapy is a gentle therapy that recharges your body’s natural bioelectricity and significantly increases circulation and blood flow. This powerful technique creates a natural detoxing effect, balancing your body’s natural pH level and gradually restoring optimal health. Recharge your body’s natural bioelectricity with a Bioelectric Meridian Massage. Your bioelectricity is your best natural defence.

DID YOU KNOW THE KEY TO YOUR SUCCESS IN LIFE & BUSINESS IS PERSONAL GROWTH & SELF DEVELOPMENT
VITAMINS & SUNSCREEN PROTECT YOUR SKIN FROM SKIN CANCER Most of us are aware of the ‘slip, slop, slap, seek, slide’ slogan of the Cancer Council campaign to encourage us to practice sun smart behaviours to reduce the risk of skin cancers. And it certainly is very valid evidencebacked advice. Yet did you know that there are two specific vitamins that can give you significant protection from getting sun burnt and subsequent skin cancers? Yes, vitamins! So, firstly let’s talk about niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3. In 2015, an article in the New England Journal of Medicine reported that a research group in Sydney found that taking niacinamide daily in a dose of 500-1000 milligrams resulted in 13 per cent fewer precancerous sun spots appearing, and a 23 per cent lower risk to develop a nonmelanoma (that is, basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer). Food sources of niacinamide include salmon, tuna, chicken, turkey, anchovies, and pork. It is also available as an over-the-
counter vitamin supplement. Secondly, let’s discuss retinol and vitamin A. Retinoid compounds, including retinol, retinal, and retinoic acid, are collectively referred to as vitamin A. Some studies from the USA between 2011 and 2019 have confirmed that retinoids, in particular retinol, may lead to at least a 17 per cent lower risk of squamous cell cancer. Lastly a quick word about sunscreen. Not far away, in Nambour, two very powerful studies conducted by cancer epidemiologist Professor Adele Green showed that daily sunscreen could lower the occurrence of squamous cell cancer by 60 per cent, and the risk of melanoma by 50 per cent. Powerful protection indeed. So, slop on that sunscreen, and take your A & B3!

WELLNESS EXPERTS CLINICAL HYPNOTHERAPY
XRAY & IMAGING
Three reasons to try hypnotherapy
What can cause sciatica to flare?
Finding your purpose
Matter of the heart
The uses for clinical hypnotherapy are vast and varied. In a day’s work I can help clients break habits, overcome selfsabotage, rise above trauma, reduce or remove chronic pain and gain freedom from phobias. My main areas of practice and passion are: 1. Eating and body wellness: The value of hypnotherapy in changing eating behaviours cannot be underestimated. I know because for 15 years I tried everything to recover from anorexia nervosa and it was hypnotherapy that finally turned things around. 2. Freedom from anxiety and stress: Stressed is the least likely place from which we’re able to learn or make changes. Hypnotherapy can assist in retraining your nervous system to feel calm, safe and at ease, putting the power back in your hands. 3. Overcoming depression: Hypnotherapy can be an effective treatment for depression because it helps you to regain control over your thoughts, emotions and behaviours.

Sciatica is a term used to describe nerve pain in the leg that is caused by irritation and/or compression of the sciatic nerve. Disc bulges that compress the nerves, eventually forming the sciatic nerve, can be triggered and aggravated by simple things such as poor posture, sitting too long without breaks, lifting heavy objects incorrectly and even being overweight. Keeping an accurate diary of daily movements and pain levels when experiencing discomfort is critical in identifying what may be triggering your sciatic flare. If you can determine the pain is being caused by something that is easily fixed – such as altering your posture when sitting – you might be able to prevent future flare-ups by taking simple action yourself. There are several treatments available that can help alleviate sciatica symptoms, like pain medication or physical therapy, but they may not work in everyone’s specific case. If the cause of your sciatica pain cannot be found or fixed, then ask your GP for a referral to see a neurosurgeon who can help resolve the issue.
Why is it that some people reach their potential, yet others fall short? Are those that succeed luckier or work harder? And for those that fall short, is it because they don’t work as hard? All of the above can contribute to whether someone succeeds or fails. As the saying goes, “the harder you work, the luckier you get”. This is because, the harder you work at something, the better you become. And when you become very good at something success will be within reach. But what if we dig deeper? Many people fall short of reaching their potential because they are striking in the wrong zone. As an example, if you wanted to be a world-class basketballer but are only five-feet tall, it is going to be very difficult to be the best in this sport. But it doesn’t mean you cannot be good at that sport. In this scenario, potential is likely to be limited. In a sport where height may not be a limiting factor, and the same dedication and passion is applied, the chances of success are far greater. It is important to remember that you cannot fulfil someone’s else’s purpose. You must determine your own purpose and when you do, you will unlock potential you never thought possible.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of hospitalisation and death in Australia, claiming on average 21 lives every day. CVD can be caused by a combination of socio-economic, behavioural and environmental risk factors. Family history, ethnic background, gender and age can also affect your risk. Thousands of Australians remain unaware that they are at high risk of CVD. Often, there are no underlying symptoms, and the first sign is a heart attack or stroke. Like most medical conditions, cardiovascular disease is easier to treat when detected early, but is there a way we can find out if we are at risk? X-Ray & Imaging offers Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring, a simple, quick and non-invasive way of evaluating the amount of calcified plaque in your heart vessels, providing an accurate assessment on the health of your heart, using a low-dose CT scan. Your GP will use the results of the calcium score to determine if you need further examinations, treatment or lifestyle changes to assess and/or reduce the risk of a future heart attack or other heart problems. Take charge of your heart health and ask your GP about CT calcium scoring at your next appointment.

THE SEARCH IS ON: BUDERIM A WINNER ON REAL ESTATE WEBSITE A variety of styles and redevelopment potential sees Buderim houses lead the search results on realestate.com.au. WORDS: Tracey Johnstone.
uderim is the shining star in house searches according to realestate.com.au, but that doesn’t mean other parts of the Coast aren’t just as golden. In the 12 months to August 2021, Buderim topped the website’s Queensland search list with 45,065 ‘highly engaged’ house buyers. That’s great news for vendors living in the suburb of Buderim, which covers a large area. But Define Property’s principal Ross Cattle advises the search number may be misleading as they potentially also include searches on properties in the surrounding suburbs of greater Buderim which includes Kuluin, Mons and Kunda Park. But for those willing to live away from the water, Buderim normally has more houses for sale across the “massive” area, with often much bigger blocks. “There is a lot of opportunity for people to redevelop properties in Buderim,” Mr Cattle says. “There are some beautiful big homes that are easy
“There is a lot of opportunity … to redevelop properties in Buderim”
to modernise or renovate and sometimes that’s a better option than building new.” Also sitting high on the realestate.com. au Queensland search list in fifth place for units is Maroochydore. Over the past 20 years, Mr Cattle says more than 50 per cent of the suburb was rental properties. But that is changing for both houses and apartments as owneroccupiers move in. It’s Mr Cattle’s top pick for capital growth. “I think Maroochydore is a fantastic area to buy real estate as it is changing so fast,” he says. The prices being achieved are solid as owners outbid investors with emotional purchases focused on taking

KEEN BUYERS EYE OFF NEW PELICAN WATERS LAND
eading Queensland developer Pelican Waters is experiencing unprecedented levels of buyer enquiry for its most recent land releases The Entrance and Navigators. The Pelican Waters development works are progressing quickly, with construction almost a month ahead of schedule due to the great weather the Sunshine Coast has been experiencing over the past few months. General manager of development for Pelican Waters, Hamish Pressland, says the layout of the new precinct incorporates more of the large waterfront lots that the master-planned community is known for. “For this particular stage, the Pelican Waters brand and product value was a key driver rather than yield,’’ Mr Pressland says. “In fact, recent changes to the layout reduced the yield in order to produce additional large, north-facing water lots into the precinct. “There is unlikely to be many more of this size north-facing waterfront in Pelican Waters after this release. “The lots are deep and wide, the water is wide and navigable to the
Pumicestone Passage via the lock and the street will be quiet. “Added bonuses are the pedestrian access over the new pedestrian bridge linking this stage with Central Park and the walkable waterfront pathways that will lead to the Pelican Waters Marina Precinct,’’ Mr Pressland says. Navigators II comes in the wake of the spectacular success of The Entrance, a combined waterfront and dry release on the estate’s new island precinct, where all 40 lots sold out within days
with up to 37 buyers vying for select lots. “The local buyer still made up around 75 per cent for The Entrance, which is interesting considering the stories elsewhere around SEQ and the Sunshine Coast. It appears the locals are selling up, taking advantage of the ever increasingly hot property market and looking to upgrade their lifestyle to something on the water,’’ Mr Pressland says. The new stage Navigators is offering 49 lots, approximately half of which will
AU SAT CTIO UR N T DA HIS Y9 AM
be exclusive, rarely available large north-facing waterfront lots with up to 20 metres of canal frontage. “The lots are also generously sized up to 854sqm for buyers to create a range of exciting lifestyle options,’’ he says. Unique to Navigators II will be the new pedestrian bridge linking the residential precinct along Warrego Drive with the island. “Given the demand for quality land and success of previous releases, the advice to prospective buyers would be to visit the Pelican Waters website to register their interest in order to get first options once Navigators ll is available,’’ he says. Potential buyers can register their interest via the Land Sales Centre on 5492 4888 or visit the website at pelicanwaters.com.

BREWERY AND RESTAURANT HITS THE MARKET
ilky Oak Tea Gardens (The Crafty Brewery) is a successful commercial venture that has been listed for sale at exactly the right time for a local or interstate owner to take it to the next level. For those in the know, Silky Oak Tea Gardens / The Crafty Brewery is a rustic restaurant and venue with tranquil gardens, a stone’s throw from the southern gateway to Fraser Island. Located just 20 minutes from Tin Can Bay, 35 minutes from Rainbow Beach and 15 minutes from Gympie and the Bruce Highway, Silky Oak Tea Gardens offers locals and tourists a relaxing place to chill and unwind with superb craft beer and homestyle food. The fully licensed brewery, live music venue and restaurant is a destination in its own right, popular with day travellers from Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, interstate visitors, caravanners and backpackers. The gardens and brewery are perfectly positioned to take advantage of the 70,000 annual visitors to Rainbow Beach, a popular destination for 4WD enthusiasts, anglers, surfers and ecotourists. The idyllic location has hit the market for the first time, listed for expressions of
interest with Ray White Commercial Noosa & Sunshine Coast North. Founders Daryl and Helen plan to retire after 25 years, making way for new owners. Chantel Dielwart commercial property consultant at Ray White Commercial Noosa & Sunshine Coast North, says Silky Oak Tea Gardens / The Craft Brewery is ideal for anyone seeking a unique commercial opportunity and lifestyle change. “The business is successful with a significant turnover and a consistent documented trade history. It has a strong and loyal customer base, is regularly booked out, and is popular for parties and
functions. People love the quirky atmosphere and good old-fashioned pub service. The brewery has built a great reputation for their craft beers.” The property has everything needed to run a successful hospitality business – large commercial kitchen, outside kitchen, pizza oven and smoker, cold and storage rooms. The current capacity is 160 people, with 80 in the large timber dining room and bar and 80 in the alfresco dining area. Part of local community folklore, the Silky Oak has Darryl and Helen’s stamp on it. When the silky oak tree that gave the property its name died after being hit by
lightning in 2012, the couple milled it into pieces for a new bar top. They then invited residents and farmers to brand it with symbols representing generations of life on the land. But that’s not all. The new owner will also secure a comfortable three-bedroom home set on peaceful private property, with timber floors and a carport. An adjoining allotment forms part of the sale, providing additional space to expand and bringing the total land area to almost two hectares. The second allotment is well maintained and features abundant fruit trees, a large shed and an operational bore with quality drinking water. “The property is a blank canvas for future development or expansion subject to council approval,” Ms Dielwar says.

So, we might be on the verge of international travel, with home quarantine being possible on your return. It’s the only way it will get me to travel. Where will you go? Me? I am so going snowboarding if I can get to Canada and Indo if they get themselves under control. Spare a thought for tourism operators in North Queensland. It will be a miracle if they can survive. This is all on vaccination rates being at 80 per cent I believe. Currently Queensland is at 45 per cent fully vaccinated.
