Like most of us, I was already familiar with the name Rosie Batty before I interviewed her recently ahead of her upcoming visit to the Sunshine Coast. The Victorian mother became a household name when her son was tragically murdered by his father in 2014. I have read many articles about the brave domestic violence crusader over the years, but I will admit that preparing to chat with her personally about such a difficult topic was quite daunting. As a mum of three myself, I can’t even begin to image the trauma of losing a child. Yet somehow this remarkable woman has found the strength and courage to speak out against domestic violence and become a beacon of hope and a voice for those who need it most.

As I spoke with Rosie, it reminded me just how strong the human spirit is and what we can do to make a positive change if we work together. Turn to page 10 to read her inspiring story. In other news, we take a look at the hidden sugars in everyday foods that may just surprise you, plus we bring you seven pages of the latest health and wellbeing news and expert advice. You’ll love our style pages this week, packed with fabulous fashion, beauty products, jewellery and more. As always, we bring you right up to date with what’s happening on the Sunshine Coast as well as all the latest local news. Until next time, stay safe and enjoy the read!

Revealed:The hidden dangers in our food

9 POPULAR FOODS THAT ARE SURPRISINGLY HIGH IN SUGAR Low-fat yoghurt – Low-fat products such as low-fat yogurts often contain added sugar to enhance flavour. A single cup can contain about 11 teaspoons of sugar. Tomato sauce – It is one of the most popular condiments worldwide, but a single tablespoon of ketchup contains nearly one teaspoon of sugar.

We are what we eat and a worrying trend towards higher levels of sugar and artificial sweeteners in packaged products indicates our national food regulations aren’t working, as a recent study shows.

Fruit juice – There can be just as much sugar in sugar-sweetened fruit juice as there is in a sugary drink such as Coke. Choose 100 per cent fruit juice when possible.


ustralians are inadvertently consuming more sugar and sweeteners than they were 15 years ago, as manufacturers hike up the amounts they slip into foods and drinks. The levels of added sugars in packaged foods across the Asia Pacific region increased by 39 per cent between 2007 and 2019, a study by Deakin University found. Over the same period, the amount of artificial sweeteners in drinks increased by 47 per cent. That’s a cause for concern when it comes to people’s health, lead researcher Cherie Russell says. “People may think that artificially sweetened food and drinks are healthier than sugar-sweetened products, but these additives are also linked to poor health outcomes, including weight gain, changes to the gut and even cancer,” she says. “You only find artificial sweeteners in ultraprocessed foods, which is ‘junk food’.” Drinks being loaded with artificial sweetener does not correlate with a drop-off in the amount of sugar in them,

the study found. Rather, added sugars in drinks increased by 14 per cent in the Asia Pacific over the study period, showing companies are increasingly using sugars and artificial sweeteners in their products. That was also the case for packaged food, in which the level of artificial sweeteners increased by 39 per cent.

“Eating sweet food can influence our palates and encourage us to want more sweet food” “In the main, food companies are using more artificial sweeteners in their products but they’re not using less sugar,” Ms Russell says. “This is a worrying trend as eating

sweet food can influence our palates and encourage us to want more sweet food. “It is of particular concern for children who are still developing their lifelong taste preferences.” The findings reveal national food regulations, which are designed to reduce the amount of sugar in people’s diets, are not working, Ms Russell says. World-wide, added sugars in packaged foods increased by nine per cent over the study period, while they decreased in drinks by 12 per cent, reflecting a significant drop off in the United States. Artificial sweeteners increased by three per cent in food globally, and by 36 per cent in drinks. WORDS: Daryl Higgins, Australian Catholic University and Sophie Havighurst, University of Melbourne.

Sports drinks – Sports drinks can often be mistaken for a healthy choice. However, a standard bottle of sports drink will contain about nine teaspoons of sugar. Flavoured coffee – The amount of hidden sugars in these drinks can be staggering. A large flavoured coffee drink can contain about 11 teaspoons of added sugar per serving. Iced tea – Most commercially prepared iced teas will contain about the same amount of sugar as a bottle of Coke. Protein bars – Many contain around 20 grams of added sugar, making their nutritional content similar to that of a chocolate bar. Cereal – Many breakfast cereals – even those marketed towards children – are loaded with sugar. Canned baked beans – One cup of regular baked beans contains about five teaspoons of sugar.

A work of fiction

Do you remember? The PDA

Did you know? English, Portuguese, Latvian, Pashto and Greek all sound very different today, but these languages all have a common ancestor called Proto-Indo-European. Though we don’t have any written examples of it, linguists have worked backwards from a variety of modern languages to try to reconstruct it. Using their reconstruction, the sentence ‘The king wanted a son’ would be written as ‘H3rḗḱs súhxnum u̯l ̥nh1to’.

The forefather of the modern mobile phone, the personal digital assistant (PDA) offered limited access to a lot of modern capabilities we’ve come to expect, including internet access, word processing, touchscreen functionality and more. They quickly became obsolete when smartphones started to gain favour, but before that time they were a firm favourite with businesspeople across the world.

By the numbers Bram Stoker was an Irish author who is now best remembered for his gothic horror novel Dracula. Partially set in Transylvania, a mountainous region in central Romania, the story cemented the legend of the vampire in mainstream European and American culture. Despite Stoker’s many world travels, he never visited Eastern Europe – and, by virtue, Transylvania – at all.


1914 – Britain declares war on Germany. Seen by many as the decision that began the First World War, Britain declared war on Germany after Germany refused to accept its ultimatum of getting out of Belgium. 1944 – Anne Frank is captured. One of the most well-known figures of the 20th century and a victim of the Holocaust, 14-year-old Frank and her family were captured and arrested by the Germans from their hiding place in Amsterdam. 1983 – A military coup in Upper Volta installs Thomas Sankara, a captain in the Upper Volta Army, as its president. A year later, he changed the name of Upper Volta to Burkina Faso.

Breaking the

silence Speaking with My Weekly Preview ahead of her visit to the Sunshine Coast, domestic violence crusader Rosie Batty says much more work is needed to ensure the safety of survivors. Words: Ingrid Nelson.

Rosie Batty, and inset, Rosie’s son Luke


osing a child is every parent’s worst nightmare, but when their death is at the hands of someone who is supposed to love and protect them, it’s almost impossible to fathom. Rosie Batty’s horrific story of her 11-year-old son’s tragic death eight years ago sent shockwaves around Australia and the world. Her only child, Luke was murdered by his father in front of horrified bystanders during cricket practice in their hometown of Melbourne. Since then, Ms Batty has used the unspeakable tragedy to become an outspoken and dynamic crusader against domestic violence, winning hearts and minds all over Australia with her compassion, courage and grace. During the past eight years she has spoken about a lack of communication between services, about public perceptions of domestic violence, about a lack of funding, and about legal procedures that she felt disempowered her ability to protect herself and her son. Her tireless advocacy and bravery have brought the uncomfortable conversation to the fore and forced governments to seriously rethink their approach to tackling family violence. Ms Batty was named Australian of the Year in 2015. Yet still, in 2022, it’s hard to believe that on average one woman a week is

killed by a current or former partner. So, what has changed in the past eight years? Why are we continuing to read about these shocking statistics and why are men, women and children still losing their lives at the hands of family members and those closest to them? Ms Batty says while there is still a long way to go, there have been some significant changes since she first began her crusade in 2014. In fact, her story was instrumental in the establishment of the Royal Commission into Family Violence in her home state of Victoria in 2015. “When you look at the statistics, it doesn’t look as if anything is improving,” Ms Batty says. “But when my son was murdered and I started speaking out about family violence, it was something we didn’t really talk about. It was like a dirty little secret, it was kept behind closed doors. “But things have changed. We are definitely more aware of family violence; we recognise and understand it more as a significant social issue and we have improved in our responses.” Ms Batty says it’s important to remember, not all domestic abuse is physical, and some types of abuse can be hard to recognise. She says emotional, financial and sexual abuse are just as harmful, and we need to start recognising the warning signs. “We are still grappling with the

different forms of violence and maybe not recognising the risk and danger of the different forms. The term ‘coercive control’ has been highlighted recently by the horrific death of Hannah Clarke and her children,” Ms Batty says. Coercive control is a type of domestic abuse that can be harder to identify than some other types of abuse. It refers to a pattern of behaviours used by an abuser to control their partner and create an uneven power dynamic. It generally involves manipulation and intimidation

“A woman and her children are at their most significant risk of fatality or extreme harm when they are planning to, or have left a relationship” to make a victim scared, isolated, and dependent on the abuser. Ms Clarke, her son and two daughters died when her husband doused them in petrol and set them alight in the Queensland suburb of Camp Hill in 2020. It was later discovered Hannah had suffered years of coercive control at the

hands of her husband and their murder resulted in landmark changes in domestic violence laws in Queensland. Coercive control is set to be criminalised by the end of 2023 as part of a $363 million domestic violence funding package. The Clarke family has set up the Small Steps 4 Hannah Foundation, a charity to help support domestic violence services, educate the community about coercive control, and push for the behaviour to be criminalised nationally. Citing lack of safe accommodation as one of the biggest obstacles facing women who are considering leaving an abusive relationship, Ms Batty says we need to do more to ensure the safety of domestic violence survivors. “Ultimately, one of the biggest obstacles for a woman who is considering leaving is where will she go and how will she afford to live. They are serious considerations, which we now appreciate even more because of the impact of COVID on the rental market, housing affordability and cost of living,” she says. “A woman and her children are at their most significant risk of fatality or extreme harm when they are planning to or have left a relationship.” Focusing her advocacy on primary prevention initiatives such as education from an early age through schools, Ms Batty has spent years trying to end the culture of blaming underlying mental

WHAT IS COERCIVE CONTROL? health issues or substance abuse as the cause of domestic and family violence. “We need a long-term strategic plan for how we educate communities,” Ms Batty tells My Weekly Preview. “This isn’t a mental health issue; this is a choice. It’s about power, control and revenge. Sitting with that stark reality can be too confronting, so we try to think it’s happened because the perpetrator has mental health issues or drug and alcohol addiction. “We try to explain it away because to think that this was a calculated and planned act is something that is really hard to understand.” Perhaps one of the hardest battles Ms Batty has faced during her crusade against domestic violence is the notion that victims could have done more to prevent the abuse. “What is even more horrible is the people who blame you and that’s inevitably always going to happen,” Ms Batty says. “They believe that in your situation they would do something different and apportion the blame to you because you didn’t do enough. This is something I have tried really hard to challenge.” Despite her horrific ordeal, Ms Batty

I am humbled and amazed.” WomenKind Australia Inc welcomes Rosie Batty and local experts to discuss the issues of domestic violence at an intimate lunch at Noosa Boathouse on Friday, September 2 from 11.30am-3pm. The event is supported by Super Fierce and Noosa Boathouse. Lunch includes two courses and a beverage and an interesting and lively panel discussion. Tickets are $75. For bookings, visit


BY THE NUMBERS • One in six women have experienced physical or sexual violence by a current or former partner. For men it’s one in 16. • One woman a week and one man a month is killed by a current or former partner. • 75 per cent of victims of domestic violence reported the perpetrator as male, while 25 per cent reported the perpetrator as female. • Overall, one in five women and one in 20 men have experienced sexual violence. • One in three clients (29 per cent or about 82,300 clients) seeking assistance from homelessness services said domestic and family violence was the main reason for seeking help. • 41 per cent (or 119,200) of people seeking help from specialist homelessness services in 2019-20 had experienced domestic and family violence. • One in six women and one in nine men experience physical or sexual abuse before the age of 15.

• Of the adults who experienced current partner violence, 86.8 per cent indicated that their child saw or heard violence in the past 12 months. • Around 2.5 million Australian adults (13 per cent) experienced abuse during their childhood; the majority knew the perpetrator and experienced multiple incidents of abuse. • Indigenous people were 32 times more likely to be hospitalised for family violence as non-Indigenous people. • In 2017, the majority of Indigenous assault victims recorded by police were victims of family violence. • People with disability were 1.8 times as likely to have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from a partner in the previous year (when compared with people without disability). • People with disability were 1.7 times as likely to have experienced sexual violence (including assault and threats) since the age of 15.

JUST THE TICKET TO PUT DIVERSITY IN SPOTLIGHT Inaugural hinterland festival aims to bring community together in more than 30 events across four days. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


vibrant first-of-its-kind festival where “everybody belongs” will set a new precedent for diverse and inclusive events in the


The inaugural Rangebow Festival is coming to the Blackall Range from August 10 to 13 and will celebrate togetherness through more than 30 curated events. Across the four days, the program includes pageants, First Nations experiences, symphonies and workshops. Festival director Wayne Parcell has always dreamed of creating a community festival and after suggestions, including a mardi gras, he knew he needed something that was more inclusive. With foundations in diversity, inclusion, sustainability and reconciliation, Mr Parcell says the festival is a vehicle to amplify these themes to people in a way that is not confrontational. “The four festival themes came about because they are central to everyday life and should be celebrated for the value they bring through individuals together for our community,” he says. “It was fundamental that the festival embraces everyone. “No one should be left out. No label, no acronyms – because everyone belongs. “The moment we start using acronyms, we start excluding people, and that would not be inclusive. “This is a chance to foster social

change that is achieved through entertainment, education and outdoor activities. We can embrace change through lived experience.” Mr Parcell says the festival program – with events in Maleny, Montville, Flaxton, Mapleton and Nambour – reflects the immense diversity of life experiences in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

He says there will be events to cater for everyone and every budget, including in the Enchanted Garden, which will feature in-conversation experiences and entertainment. “Beyond the many free events like The Enchanted Garden, the festival will surprise and delight the foodies with a celebration of Indigenous food and culture in Forage Fire Feast and the

Glasshouse Mountains Dreamtime stories told by a Jinibara man,” Mr Parcell says. “The Pageant of Pineapple Queens and Bunya Kings offers individuals of different ages and abilities the opportunity to participate in drag performance workshops and then parade their creativity and flair on a runway in Maleny. “If you like tennis or bowls, there is a chance to incorporate fun outdoors with entertainment and humour.” The Moonlight Symphony on the Friday will see local primary school musicians, who make up the The Rangebow Children’s Orchestra, play original compositions with the Sunshine Coast Symphony Orchestra. “Music lovers will share a unique creative experience that culminates in an orchestral performance never before experienced,” Mr Parcell says. “For those looking for something a bit racier, the Cabaret events after the Moonlight Symphony will be just the ticket.” There is a Bunya Bears Brunch with Indigenous and multicultural foods for children and families in Montville on the Saturday, as well as free live entertainment throughout the main street of the town. Mr Parcell hopes the Rangebow Festival will become an annual event and is grateful for the continued community support.

To help protect water users across southeast Queensland beaches, the state government is investing $6 million across the next three years to expand the trial of shark spotting drones. The SharkSmart drone trial began in September 2020 in partnership with Surf Life Saving Queensland. Drones were trialled in five locations across the state, including Alexandra Headland and Coolum north. During the program, only three sharks were spotted at Alexandra Headland, while there were zero sharks spotted in the Coolum region. As part of the new investment, the trial area will be expanded to include Noosa Main Beach before the 2022 summer school holidays.

STEP BACK IN TIME TO CELEBRATE THE QCWA The QCWA Beerwah branch has been busy working on a special project to celebrate the Queensland Country Women’s Association turning 100. A 1920s-themed 2023 calendar will pay homage to the organisation’s achievements during the past centenary. The calendars will be sold at the QCWA Beerwah Scone Festival, which will take place on August 11, as well as the Beerwah Tower Green Markets through to December. Funds from calendar sales will go towards future community projects. The Scone Festival, to be held at Beerwah Community Hall, will feature live entertainment, a morning tea with homemade scones, prizes, guest speakers and a scone-baking demonstration. Tickets for the event are available at Search ‘QCWA 2022 Scone Festival’.


HISTORICAL FLIGHT 001 LANDS LOCAL Bonza’s first aircraft touched down at Sunshine Coast Airport on Monday landing a massive coup for our region. In one of the largest launch announcements in Australian aviation history, Sunshine Coast Airport in February was named as the first Bonza base and head office location for the nation’s only independent carrier. The arrival of the first aircraft, which left Seattle on July 29, flew to Honolulu July 30 and then left Fiji on Monday morning, marks a major milestone for the company. It is the first Boeing 737 MAX to be based in Australia and will be part of a fleet of new and fuel efficient aircraft. They will cater for Aussie travellers flying to an initial 17 destinations on 27 routes. Destinations soon to be available for Coast residents include Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Whitsunday Coast, Rockhampton, Coffs Harbour, Melbourne, Port Macquarie, Newcastle, Albury, Tamworth, Avalon, Mildura.


A specialised service providing support to Sunshine Coast victims of sexual violence is receiving $480,000 to keep up with extra demand. Laurel Place in Maroochydore provides counselling and education to adults and children aged over 12. This state government funding is on top of $2.5 million annually provided for the organisation. Attorney-General Shannon Fentiman says the demand increase is a result of police investigations relating to several alleged sexual assault incidents in the area. “This type of violence has absolutely no place in our community. This will ensure the service can continue to deliver appropriate sexual assault support, with two additional counsellors made available over the next 24 months.” For help call the Sexual Assault Help Line on 1800 010 120.

OPENING A PRECIOUS GIFT Wishlist honours philanthropic Sunshine Coast couple as vital centre takes shape.

Wishlist CEO Lisa Rowe with Nola and Roy Thompson


building honouring the philanthropic generosity of a Sunshine Coast couple is set to be unveiled this week as stage one of Wishlist Centre nears completion. The Roy and Nola Thompson Building recognises Mr and Mrs Thompson’s $2 million gift towards the construction of the Australian-first facility in Birtinya, opposite Sunshine Coast University Hospital. The philanthropists say it is the specific services to be offered within the four-level Wishlist Centre that strike a chord with them. “We were particularly inspired by the adolescent and young adult support services the Wishlist Centre will

provide,” Mr Thompson says. “These are our young people and our families – the future of Australia. I believe we all have a role to play in providing a solution to a growing problem. So, Nola and I are proud to give to a project that will help to keep our kids out of hospitals.” Wishlist CEO Lisa Rowe says the milestone in the construction of Wishlist Centre signals the countdown to its much-anticipated opening in November. “It’s really exciting to reach this point and see the project taking shape,” Ms Rowe says. “We’re in the final stages of preparing to open doors to patients and families in the coming months, which has been years in the making. We honour Roy and Nola Thompson by naming Wishlist Centre Stage One after them – the Roy and Nola Thompson Building. “Their incredible contribution to the treatment being offered to Sunshine Coast youth, as well as the many others who will benefit from these services, can’t be overstated.” Wishlist Centre will be Australia’s first facility to offer patient accommodation, primary healthcare and complementary therapies under one roof. Wishlist Centre will include support for cancer patients and their families, a GP service, youth mental health programs, affordable transitionary accommodation and more. A community open day will take place in November for locals to tour Wishlist Centre before its opening. Keep up to date at

Your Mates’ Matt Hepburn and Christen McGarry

CHANGES BREWING IN BEER BUSINESS From humble beginnings in a makeshift garage bar, one of the Coast’s best-known craft beer businesses is about to undergo a frothy expansion. National demand for Your Mates is growing, prompting an $8 million investment to increase beer production and expand the Brewhouse. Mates Matt Hepburn and Christen McGarry began the brewery in 2013 and soon the team will go from brewing one million to five million litres a year. The expansion will see Your Mates take on the lease next door to its current production facility in Warana after a 12-month search. “Not only will the site be able to cater for our future growth to more than five million litres, it will allow us to keep our team under the same roof, which is extremely important to us and our cultural objectives,” Your Mates states in a release. “The additional space is also going to allow us to expand our hugely popular Brewhouse, with the potential to host more functions and bigger music and entertainment events amongst the tanks.”

WHERE ART AND THE DIGITAL WORLD MEET The Sunshine Coast has made history, becoming the first region in Australia to open a permanent NFT gallery.


n Australian-first gallery has opened on the Sunshine Coast and is unleashing a whole new world of relatively unknown technology forming part of a billiondollar global industry. Meta Collect at Baringa is dedicated to Web3 non-fungible tokens, otherwise known as NFTs. Web3 is a new iteration of the world wide web that supports technology including token-based economics. It also advocates emphasis on user privacy and ownership of data. NFTs are a digital asset that links ownership of unique physical or digital items to a person and these items can include artwork, real estate, music or videos. Often considered as modern-day collectibles, tokenising these real-world assets increases efficiency in trading, purchasing, and selling while lowering the risk of fraud. Meta Collect CEO Kenny Lienhard says the 195-square-metre space has the capacity to exhibit collections as well as host crypto meetups, education seminars and networking events.

About META COLLECT META COLLECT is a Web3 development studio and the creators of Finney, The Crunks, and Mongs NFT brands. The team is also behind the UNDRGRND NFT art brand consisting of a publication and soon-to-launch gamified NFT marketplace. The upcoming $COLLECT ecosystem token will tie their brands together and gamify the UNDRGRND marketplace.

John Williamson, Kenny Lienhard and Jimmy McRae from Meta Collect “The global NFT community is worth billions of dollars, and we are only at the cusp of NFT’s growth as it extends across business, sport, art and the wider community,” he says. “As far as we know this is Australia’s first, permanent NFT gallery, which will

also act as our headquarters for Meta Collect,” he says. “The gallery and event space blends art and technology seamlessly and our goal is to make the Sunshine Coast a hub for both artists and tech enthusiasts.” Mr Lienhard says the gallery is fitted

with market-leading high-quality TokenFrame screens for authenticated NFT art activations and has the ability to exhibit collections from across the globe on demand. Launching the community-driven crypto publication, Cryptowriter, in 2018, Meta Collect has since gone on to create this platform for upcoming NFT artists. The Meta Collect gallery is on Matheson Street, Baringa and open to the public every Saturday from 10am to 4pm or by appointment. Visit

FROM THE MAYOR Hi everyone, For a number of years, Council has been working with the Queensland Government and Unitywater to deliver Blue Heart Sunshine Coast. The innovative project is committed to protecting, managing and restoring a 5000-hectare area on the Maroochy River floodplain. I’m extremely pleased to share with you that the Blue Heart project has been successful in securing a $2 million grant through the Commonwealth Government’s Blue Carbon Ecosystem Restoration Grant. The project is one of five successful grant recipients across Australia. As Blue Carbon ‘farming’ is a potential economic opportunity for Blue Heart private landholders, the grant funding provides a timely opportunity to demonstrate Blue Carbon restoration and the associated benefits. This news is great encouragement to the project and reinforces just how important the Blue Heart, one of our major green spaces, is to our region. The Blue Heart is a crucial aspect of achieving our vision of Australia’s most sustainable region – healthy, smart, creative. I encourage you to visit Council’s website to learn more.

Poppy is petitioning for a ramp at the Mooloolaba playground

POPPY POWER IN ACTION A young petitioner is showing us all how to play advocate for change to ensure access and inclusiveness for all. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.


he is only seven, but Poppy is determined to make an inclusive change for people with a disability to access a popular Coast playground. Last week, she submitted a petition, with about 1190 signatures to Sunshine Coast Council to make the play space at Mooloolaba Beach wheelchair and pram friendly. The inspiration came after she burst into tears seeing a child, similar in age to her, excluded from playing with other children as she could not enter the

park. The playground, outside Mooloolaba Surf Club, does not have ramp access. The petition also asks the council to reconsider keeping a children’s playground in the future redevelopment of the Mooloolaba foreshore. There are currently no plans to include a playground between the surf club and Loo with a View, only a chidren’s water play area. Showing his support for Poppy and her campaign, division four councillor Joe Natoli tabled the petition at the council’s Ordinary Meeting, held on July 28.

Poppy, whose full name is Poppy-Evie Oceania, says she is deeply saddened to see that not all children can play at one of her favourite parks. “It’s an idea so that kids with disabilities can go into the park and play with everyone,” Poppy says. “One day, I saw a kid who couldn’t get into the park and it made me feel sad and I got tears in my eyes. Then I saw a man in a wheelchair who could not play with his children.” Poppy’s mother Kahlia says she is extremely proud of her daughter for addressing an issue beyond the means of most primary school students. “When this all happened at the park that day, she burst into tears and asked me to build a ramp,” Kahlia says. “I said I couldn’t build a ramp but that I would write a letter to council. Little did I know that when we went to meet (Cr Natoli), he would jump on board. “Every Sunday, Poppy has been taking this petition down to the park and asking for signatures. I’ve learnt a lot advocating with Poppy in the community. If we listen to our children more and see how they see the world … we could learn a lot as adults.” Cr Natoli says he is amazed by Poppy’s initiative to make a difference. He says while legislation does not dictate a need for greater accessibility, Poppy is sparking an important call-to-action. “It has taken a seven-year-old to point this out to everybody, including myself, that we are aware of the need but have not given it serious thought,” the councillor says. Cr Natoli says he already has an officer looking at the opportunities of enabling disability access to the playground. To support Poppy, the petition is digitally available at Search ‘Access for those living with a disability at Mooloolaba playground’.

SENSES IN THE FRAME Two Coolum community groups have united to help a young visually impaired girl thrive through sensory learning. The Coolum Men’s Shed and Coolum Women’s Shed have come together to create and decorate an accommodating space for the child, who lives in foster care, to use at home. This six-year-old girl was diagnosed with a genetic condition requiring her to use a wheelchair for most of her day. The young girl is also visually and hearing impaired and is flourishing from using a similar sensory frame at her school. Maroochydore-based Life Without Barriers, which works with individuals to reach their full potential, approached both sheds to initiate the project. The Men’s Shed built the frame while the Women’s Shed decorated it with various materials, colours, lights and textures to create an ideal immersive experience. Life Without Barriers youth worker Rebecca Deighton says this new frame will improve the day-to-day life of the six-year-old. “Having a sensory frame at home will allow her to have a great sensory experience when she needs to be in her chair, keeping her entertained and expanding her senses,” she says.

Babies born on Kabi Kabi land will now have a special way to connect to country. Buderim Private Hospital is introducing baby milestone cards recognising the Indigenous heritage of the land where the hospital stands. Reading “Born on Kabi Kabi Country”, the new baby milestone cards have been produced in consultation with local Elders and forms part of a pack of other cards given to new parents. Parents are encouraged to use the cards to mark milestones throughout their baby’s first year of life and share photos of their baby’s growth and development with family and friends. New parents Danielle and Curtis Schulz are proud their daughter Maddison, who is one of the first to access the new cards. “We understand how important it is to respect our (region’s) history and heritage and think this will be a wonderful memory for Maddison in the future to reflect on how she was born in Buderim on Kabi Kabi land,” Ms Schulz says. Buderim Private Hospital is part of UnitingCare, which has a reconciliation vision to be culturally responsible and committed to social justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, and be unified, positive and healthy. “For a child or ‘jarjum’, knowing the

LiveLife Pharmacies and Tewantin Noosa Lions Club have joined forces to create and distribute care packs to SunnyKids and support individuals in need. Through the joint initiative Care Packs for Those in Need, more than $30,000 worth of products has been donated from LiveLife Pharmacies across Queensland. Lions volunteers then filled and distributed hundreds of packs, which include essential health care and personal

care products, plus beauty and first-aid items. Several care packs have been presented to SunnyKids to help the men, women and children they support locally, while others will go to small communities across Queensland. “These care packs go a long way for the women and children experiencing hardship that struggle to maintain access to these everyday essentials,” SunnyKids service team leader Alex Comino says.

Mr Rogers completed a Certificate III in Information Technology and a Certificate IV in Cyber Security at the Mooloolaba campus, after making the decision to leave his job of seven years as a civil engineering draftsman to pursue a new career. “While I’d always enjoyed my work, I just found myself wanting a change in direction,” Mr Rogers says. “When I started working in identity protection and helping victims of cybercrime, I had this feeling of: ‘This is what I’m meant to be doing’.” Mr Rogers will now advance to the state finals of the Queensland Training Awards on September 17.

Cr Christian Dickson, Division Six

Lisa Rowe, Wishlist CEO Forest Park

Welcoming new projects Sunshine Coast Council’s 2022-23 budget recently delivered an exciting future for residents, and I’m pleased to see a diverse and valuable mix of projects for division six. Among the highlights, I’m grateful to see funding committed towards the new Forest Park West, library and community venue at Sippy Downs, plus significant upgrades to local parks, gardens and cycling and pedestrian facilities.

Bin reminder You may have noticed our new-look waste trucks driving around the streets, as our new waste collection contractor, JJs Waste and Recycling, has started service across the region. Your bins will be collected on the same weekday, but the time may be earlier or later. A friendly reminder to put your bins out the night before your normal collection day. Thanks for your patience during this major change.

Lighting up Chancellor Village New pathway lighting at Chancellor Village will soon be installed. Following the consultation and project news earlier in the year, nine new LED post top lights will provide safe passage through the park for the community. The works are set to be completed this month, weather permitting.

Homegrown hits on the horizon There’s a lot for residents to look forward to at this year’s Horizon Festival from August 26 to September 4. The program is out now, jam-packed with free and ticketed arts events. Book your experience at or follow @ horizonartfest for updates on socials. Don’t forget if you have any questions, please contact me at email: Christian. and follow my Facebook page for regular updates: @CouncillorDickson.

ONE OF LIFE’S GREAT CERTAINTIES IS CHANGE From its humble beginnings in a demountable at the back of Nambour Hospital 21 years ago, Wishlist has faced its fair share of changes over the years. And we continue to change and adapt as we enter a new era of supporting hospital patients and their families, against the backdrop of a burgeoning population with diverse physical, emotional and mental health needs. The ways we’ve raised funds over the years has changed. We’ve also changed how we’ve helped families relying on local hospitals. Gone are the days where the bulk of our funding went towards medical equipment in our hospitals. Much of the $1.8million pledged this year will fund innovative therapy support services and project positions aimed at positively influencing patient care and keeping

people out of hospital. With the support of superb volunteers, we’re continuing to provide comfort to patients, visitors and staff through Wishlist Coffee Houses at Nambour and Gympie hospitals, and affordable accommodation in two centres near Nambour Hospital and Sunshine Coast University Hospital. What’s changing is that in September, we are adding to that provision of service through the new Wishlist Centre opening. The centre will offer more accommodation and primary healthcare options, and support therapies through collaborative partnerships. Put all the pieces together and you start to understand the growth of Wishlist in recent years. While I take long-service leave, our general manager Brendan Hogan will take the reins as acting CEO, leading our organisation through this period of growth and change. That work will continue on my return as our very busy Wishlist team works together on the job at hand – making our charity more sustainable extending our partner network and having greater impact than ever before on the health needs of our community. I know this incredible community will be there with us every step of the way. Thank you for all you do for Wishlist.

Jane Stephens wonders how we allowed anonymous, feel-good acts of generosity towards others to become such marketable commodities.

Ashley Robinson reckons everyone is entitled to their opinion on the pride debate or other tickly issues, as long as everyone agrees to disagree.


see the attention as kind. She told media her quiet had been disrupted and she felt patronised – as if all older women should be tickled pink by the gift of flowers from a stranger. Now, she is upset at being the subject of global pity, given no say in the exchange or its publication. Despite the seemingly warm and fuzzy intent, the video is not a true example of kindness. Kindness would be connecting with that stranger, sharing a smile or offering a hand. It would have been showing a little human caring instead of capturing a marketable moment. Four years ago, University of British Columbia psychology researchers John-Tyler Binfet and Camilla Enns identified the notion of “quiet kindness” through a series of experiments. While they found this to be far less prevalent than planned or responsive kindness, they found these acts – for the good of another and characterised by their stealth-like quality and the desire of the initiator to remain anonymous – occurred more than people might expect. If that was to spread like wildfire, for real instead of virtually, what a truly wonderful world it would be.

indness is a type of behaviour marked by sympathy, benevolence, generosity and consideration without expecting praise or reward in return. So dictionaries say. But what if you are motivated by pursuit of praise? And what if you do receive something in return – not from the subject of your kindness, but from sponsors? Random acts of kindness have become a social media phenomenon. The virtual world is captivated by watching strangers do kind things for others, with whole channels dedicated to discussing them. Those among us who believe in the power of positivity feel a little heartened that in an unpleasantly topsy-turvy world, goodness is at last getting attention. But the trend has tipped over a rather sharp edge. And kindness has been left behind. A few weeks ago, Melbourne TikTok content creator Harrison Pawluk filmed himself giving a bunch of flowers to an older woman sitting alone. The video went viral and has now been viewed more than 65 million times. The reason for the manic viewing is that the woman did not

t the time of writing, there was much debate about Manly and its ‘rainbow jersey’, as well as discussion on Pauline Hanson walking out of parliament as she didn’t approve or support the Welcome to Country. With regards to the Manly protest by a number of players and supporters, I guess in my mind it is a free country. If you don’t want to support a ‘rainbow jersey’ with the intention of celebrating inclusiveness, that is totally your right. But in saying that, if you do want to show your support, it’s your right as well. Surely in the year 2022, we can all have different opinions without outrage. If the Manly players chose not to play in the jersey, it is not for me to reason why, or anyone else. If there is fallout inside the club because of it, well, that is the path they chose. My opinion is, I am totally for what the Manly Club tried to achieve and in a way, it probably has highlighted what inclusiveness should really be and that we probably still have a fair way to go. A few folk brought up the fact that some people’s

beliefs are against gambling and alcohol, yet there’s no issue with that on a jersey, so why is a rainbow any different? But I won’t argue about it. If someone asks my opinion, I’ll tell them but I won’t argue the point unless I see someone being vilified – then I will. Welcome to Country is something I am totally comfortable with, unlike Ms Hanson. In fact, I am a firm believer that our flag and our anthem should include our traditional owners. Again, I will not get into any arguments over it if people disagree, as “everyone” is entitled to an opinion – as long as they respect others. As they say, religion and politics are deadest two topics we should all stay away from. We should all be capable of treating people respectfully and judge them by what type of humans they are. As a chap called Pat Wadors said: “When we listen and celebrate what is both common and different, we become wiser, more inclusive, and better as an organisation.” I reckon if we changed the last word to ‘community’, it pretty well sums it up. Pat sounds a bit wiser than Pauline ... in my opinion, that is.

BOOK IN FOR PURE GOLD NIGHT OUT Sami Muirhead finds a novel way to escape with some ‘old friends’ on a big-screen adaptation of one of her favourite murder-mystery stories.


ome books stay in your mind for decades after you read them. Where The Crawdads Sing will be one of those treasures for me. It is written beautifully. It is so sad it makes your wholebody ache for happiness for the lead character, who is a little girl and then a young woman. It is a love story and a story of survival. It is a murder-mystery story where nature shines. Most of all, author Delia Owens has page after page of escapism at its absolute best. I was given the book as a gift from my dear friend Mel, and it started me reading again after too many years with towers of unread books stacked next to my head at night. Those unread books taunted me as to how many things I am not achieving in life. But still I let them gather dust and sit there stubbornly because I knew one day the tide would turn and I would return to my true love of reading. And so, I did. I was nervous to see the movie adaptation of one of my favourite books. The big screen never lives up to pages, in my opinion. I know just about everyone has that

same arrogant opinion. There is only ever one exception to my rule and that is Harry Potter. The movies do each character justice. So, off I tiptoed with trepidation to see Crawdads. I splurged on Gold Class because I needed wine and Angus beef sliders to get me through this anxious test of stacking the flick against the novel. I also had a side of caramel churros for dessert, just to fuel my courage and fill my greedy stomach. Gold Class is surely a great night out in anyone’s books. It blows my mind that you can sit in a big ol’ comfy leather chair and someone will serve you food. It must be how my kids think life is every night at home. Gold Class is the greatest form of therapy a girl could invest in for herself. Anyway, there I sat in total bliss for two hours watching my beloved characters come to life and they were how I had always imagined them in my mind. The movie is a little more cheesy than the book, but I can highly recommend escaping reality and watching it. And make sure you order the dessert, too. You deserve it.

Before and after

People with missing or broken teeth often put off treatment due to dental anxiety, fear of dental impressions, a strong gag reflex, claustrophobia or time constraints. But now a solution may be in sight. Mrs L, a 60-year-old female patient, was treated by a team of Sunshine Coast specialists – Dr Ramman Oberoi and Dr Ian Wilson – using a digitised guided surgical approach known as AuDentes®, developed by a Melbourne prosthodontist, Dr Philip Tan. Her existing compromised teeth were replaced by new implant-supported fixed bridges in a single surgical procedure in a day surgery setting in a hospital. Popular procedures claiming ‘immediate teeth’, in reality provide teeth in three to five days, requiring intervention and impressions in a

post-surgery swollen and uncomfortable mouth. The temporary bridge placed in the procedure then needs to be changed to a final one in a few months. AuDentes®, however, offers instant teeth with the removal of existing teeth, then implanting placements and final fixed bridges. That is all done in one day under one procedure, with comparable costs and minimal time. Some costs may be covered by your Medicare and private health cover, too. If you are unhappy with your teeth or dentures and are considering options to replace them, seek a consultation or more information on this exciting, new treatment option.

BEWARE LASER POINTER EFFECTS ON CHILDREN’S EYES Toys with laser beams and pointers may seem harmless to play with, but they can be extremely damaging to eyes. In fact, these toys and devices are not something you want in the hands of your little ones. While adults can also cause self-inflicted damage to their eyes with laser pointers, children are at greater risk as they are drawn in by the appearance of them. Children lack the protective mechanism of gaze aversion and blinking that we, as adults, have. In recent years, there has been an increase in paediatric patients admitted to emergency departments with injuries to their retina caused by playing with a laser pointer or toys that emit laser beams. Damage to the retina has serious irreversible consequences for their sight, compromising their reading and driving vision for life. The Food and Drug Administration in the US makes these suggestions: • Never point a laser pointer at anyone. • Don’t use a laser pointer over reflective surfaces. • Don’t buy laser pointers for children. • The power of a pointer should not exceed 5 milliwatts. Anything over that power decreases the time for safe exposure, and permanent damage to the eyes and skin can happen quickly.

• Always check the label on a pointer. It should indicate the name of the manufacturer and the date it was made, and include a warning to avoid exposure to laser radiation. It is important to note that if a pointer is bought online, manufacturers use several keywords that may indicate the laser is more than 5 milliwatts. These may include: ‘powerful’, ‘bright’, ‘ultra’, ‘strong’, ‘super’ and ‘military’. Blue or violet light lasers are more dangerous as the human eye is less sensitive to these colours, so blinking or the dislodging response will be slower.

WEEKEND ESSENTIALS TO TRAVEL WELL WITH PETS Winter is a popular time for weekend adventures. And whether it be to visit family, a quick camping trip, or a short break cottage stay, there is a good chance that, as a pet lover, you’ll want to take your pet with you. Preparation is the key if you want to make sure you both can have a great mini break. Before you hit the road, ask yourself if your pet is: • A good traveller? Have they travelled in your car for long periods before? Do you have secure seating for them like a Happy Ride booster seat? • Social? Some pets love new people and places. Others, not so much. Take something with you that helps to

maintain control, such as an Easy Walk® Harness that will keep them feeling safe and secure, no matter where they are. • A lover of home comforts? Does your pet just love their Pet Fountain or their Automatic Ball Launcher? Then pack these luxuries for your pets and make the transition to the holiday home a little easier for them. • Wearing ID? It is very important to ensure that your pet is wearing sufficient ID and that their chip details are up to date before you take off for your adventure together.

PetSafe® Australia is making the weekend break even easier with 10% off the entire Weekend Essentials range. Just head to and use the code WEEKENDS10 at the checkout. This promotion ends on August 31.

A workhorse of the skin rejuvenation world, IPL Sq’s ability to target multiple skin concerns at each consultation is seeing it recognised as one of the new go-to treatments for quick, visible results. Providing an impressive range of benefits, IPL Sq is remarkably inexpensive and quick, requiring no downtime. And, according to Dr Carina Joubert, from Nunkeri Beauty, it can make a dramatic difference to the appearance of the skin. “Because it can treat multiple conditions simultaneously, IPL Sq really is an ideal skin rejuvenation treatment for people across all age groups and for a variety of issues,” Dr Joubert says. “It stimulates collagen regeneration to improve volume and elasticity, it fades age spots and sun damage and it treats acne, rosacea, spider veins and broken capillaries, meaning it really offers something for most people, and often fixes more than one problem at a time.” IPL Sq delivers intense pulses of light to varying depths in the skin, which is why it can be tailored to the specific needs of the client to achieve optimal results. “For pigmentation, we target the intense pulsed light at the darkened areas

of pigments, causing it to heat up and then break down. For rosacea and broken capillaries, the light affects the oxyhaemoglobin in blood vessels, sealing the vessel and reducing redness,” Dr Joubert says. “With acne, the pulsed light unclogs pores, destroys bacteria and shrinks the sebaceous glands, while removing the topmost layer of dead skin cells and stimulating new skin growth. “And to top it off, with the IPL Sq’s ability to promote new collagen growth, it’s also a great tool to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and give you a smoother, creamier complexion.”

IPL Sq is offered by Dr Joubert at her skin rejuvenation clinic, Nunkeri Beauty, at Forest Glen. Visit

Non-invasive facial rejuvenation with REAL RESULTS

THE HIDDEN SIGNS OF REFLUX Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is a common condition. Silent reflux affects about 40 to 50 per cent of patients who have GORD. It is referred to as ‘silent reflux’ because it does not present with the classic symptoms of reflux: heartburn, a lump in the throat and regurgitation. Symptoms of silent reflux range from a chronic cough, recurrent sore throats, loss of voice and persistent throat clearing to chest pain, choking, wheezing and shortness of breath. When diagnosis and treatment are delayed, chronic GORD can increase the risk of serious health complications. In June 2021, X-Ray & Imaging partnered with Professor Hans Van der Wall and introduced the Gastroesophageal Reflux Test to the Sunshine Coast. The first of its kind, this patented nuclear medicine imaging technique precisely identifies contamination of reflux fluid throughout the head, throat and chest. “Many patients do not present with classic symptoms of GORD but are suffering from typical upper-respiratory tract symptoms such as chronic cough, dysphonia and globus,” Professor Van der Wall says. “This is due to reflux fluid contaminating the maxillary sinuses, throat, middle ears and laryngopharynx. “It may also contaminates the airways and lungs, causing asthma-like symptoms, breathing difficulties, chronic cough and recurrent bronchitis or pneumonia. We frequently see patients with a diagnosis of ‘atypical asthma’, which often turns out to be GORD with entry of reflux into the airways.”

IPL-Sq can make a dramatic difference to the appearance of your skin. It can treat multiple conditions simultaneously: it stimulates collagen regeneration to improve volume and elasticity, fades age spots and sun damage, and treats acne, rosacea, spider veins and broken capillaries. Historically, GORD has been diagnosed using pH monitoring, fluoroscopy or endoscopy. So how does the Gastroesophageal Reflux Test differ to these tests? Although pH monitoring is 50-80 per cent sensitive and 77-100 per cent specific in the presence of heartburn and regurgitation, it is limited to oesophageal disease only – particularly the lower oesophagus. Endoscopy is effective as an anatomical diagnostic tool but has a poor sensitivity for GORD (less than 30 per cent) and is limited to detecting reflux disease that is severe enough to damage the oesophagus. Fluoroscopy or Barium Swallow is insensitive and has a high radiation burden and only demonstrates oesophageal disease. The Gastroesophageal Reflux Test is 90 per cent sensitive and provides an effective, inexpensive, simple and non-invasive screening tool for reflux and lung aspiration, detecting contamination throughout the maxillary sinuses, throat, middle ears, laryngopharynx, airways and lungs.

EASY SUPPLEMENTS TO HELP BOOST YOUR GUT HEALTH Poor digestive function and gut health problems can affect most of us at some point in our lives. Maintaining a healthy gastrointestinal tract (GIT) can help to support our immune and digestive systems. Ultimately, a healthy digestive system means a healthy you. LOOK AFTER THE MICROBIOME: Probiotics and prebiotics work as a team and help nourish and enhance the gut’s microbiome, home to more than 50 trillion bacteria of about 1000 different species. Although we typically think of bacteria as bad, it’s helpful to understand there are good types of bacteria as well, particularly in the gut. Probiotics are living organisms that may help boost and balance the gut’s good bacteria. This good bacteria aids in digestion, nutrient absorption, plus much more – potentially including brain function. You’ll find probiotics in some fermented foods, such as cultured yoghurt and sauerkraut, as well as in powder form to add to smoothies and capsule form to take daily. Though introducing probiotics can be beneficial, it’s important to provide an optimal environment for the ‘good’ bacteria to thrive. You can do this with prebiotics. Prebiotics are non-digestible carbohydrates that feed the good bacteria in your gut. Jerusalem artichoke, onions

on your GIT. If this proves too hard, you can try digestive enzymes. Digestive enzymes support the process of digestion, allowing you to digest food more easily. STAY REGULAR: Having regular and complete bowel motions is important for your digestive health. Ensure you’re consuming adequate amounts of fibre from foods including vegetables, fruit, grains, legumes, nuts and seeds. And be sure to drink at least two litres of water a day to help the movement of fibre through the intestinal tract to improve bowel regularity.

HERBAL AND NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT: and garlic are prebiotic foods you can add to your diet to promote digestive health. Feeding the good bacteria may help them thrive and produce favourable effects on the immune system, skin health and digestion. IMPROVE YOUR DIET: Eating large amounts of processed foods and consuming alcohol can lead to an imbalance in digestive flora, which could lead to digestive symptoms such as bloating and bowel irregularity. Avoiding these types of food will help you sustain your gut bacteria. WORK ON YOUR DIGESTION: Good health relies heavily on the absorption of nutrients from your GIT. Remember to chew slowly and thoroughly to lighten the digestive load

Support the health of your gastrointestinal system with nutrients and herbs such as: L-Glutamine – an amino acid, this is a source of fuel for intestinal mucosal cells and supports intestinal health. Licorice – helps to maintain healthy mucous linings in the digestive system. Calendula – a herb traditionally used in Western herbal medicine as an antiinflammatory to help relieve mild gastrointestinal tract inflammation. Kunara Organic Marketplace has qualified naturopaths offering free advice on health and wellbeing. If you’ve been experiencing poor digestive, skin or immune health, visit the team for the best approach to your wellness journey. A positive balance of good bacteria in the gut

will support digestion, nutrient absorption, the immune system, brain function, mood, metabolism and skin conditions. Having a balanced gut microbiome also supports functions of the liver and cardiovascular system among many other bodily functions. While it is important to support the gut microbiome with foods that are rich in probiotics, prebiotics are also important. Prebiotics are food for probiotics – these are essential to keep the good bacteria thriving. Include plenty of fibre-filled foods such as artichokes, asparagus, oats, flaxseed, legumes, bananas, grapefruit, leek and many other fruits, vegetables and grains. Try high-fibre green banana flour in baking and, if needed, look for a prebiotic supplement for added support. Probiotics are plentiful in foods such as yogurt, kefir, kombucha, sauerkraut, pickles, miso, tempeh, kimchi and sourdough bread. But if you have a poor diet, have had recent digestive issues, stress or taken antibiotics, you may benefit from a probiotic supplement. These supplements have more probiotics in a small, concentrated dose than food-based probiotics for a boost of good bacteria in a short time.

WALK AWAY FROM THE DEVICE AND STEP ON TO THE MAT Do you have ‘screenagers’? Have you considered the physical and psychological effects of device overuse – on our children and ourselves? Yoga to the rescue. With mobile device technology being relatively new on the landscape, we have not yet witnessed what damage a full life of device usage may do to our physiology. However, we can make a fairly accurate guess. Poor posture, back pain and chest-muscle atrophy are some of the already common physical ailments, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg, before delving into psychological conditions. Yoga (as well as other forms of exercise) is a wonderful foil to this problem, and can counteract both the physical and psychological infirmities that may be associated with our devices over usage. All of our classes at Yoga Vida focus on remedying poor posture, strengthening core, lengthening our spine, resting the nervous system, and creating overall wellbeing. An hour on your mat is an hour away from the outside world and the clutches of your device. With screen time starting at such a young age, ideally we should be counteracting its use at an early age, too. At Yoga Vida, we’d love to see more

teenagers rolling out the mat, rather than scrolling on their device. So much so that we’d like to offer the next 10 families to reach out a free membership for each teen, when joining with a paying parent. Let’s do this together, mum and dad! Most of us adults could do with a wee break from our devices, too.

RESTORATIVE STIMULATION COULD TAKE AWAY THE PAIN OF ONGOING THERAPY SESSIONS AND MEDICATION Chronic mechanical lower back pain is something that can dramatically affect a person’s lifestyle and wellbeing. While most back pain only lasts a short while and can be treated with medication or physiotherapy, for others it can be ongoing and negatively affect their everyday life. Thanks to advancements in medical technology, Sunshine Coast patients may now finally be able to find a solution to their chronic mechanical lower back pain. Restorative stimulation therapy is designed to help patients who have not responded to other methods of treatments such as medicines and physical therapy. The small, implantable device has two leads that are positioned outside the spine, next to the dorsal ramus nerves that control the spine’s stabilising muscles. In patients with chronic mechanical lower back pain, impaired muscle control may arise after even a single incidence of injury. To avoid pain, the brain automatically limits activation of the most important stabilising muscle of the low spine: the multifidus muscle. Restorative stimulation overcomes neural inhibition and allows the body to regain control of the multifidus, allowing it to provide functional lumbar stability

The Multifidus muscle is an important stabiliser of the lumbar spine and reduce mechanically based pain. By stimulating the innervating nerves of the multifidus directly, this efficient, effective therapy can be delivered with minimal effort by the patient and provider. “This therapy is for a select group of patients whose back pain is due to a specific back muscle dysfunction,” Dr Thomas, Pain Specialist at QPain, says. “Indeed, we have had great results in terms of pain relief and functional improvement in this group of patients.”

Every patient is different, so discuss your condition with a specialist. Contact QPain on 5318 7275 or visit

DIFFICULT TO PRONOUNCE AND EVEN HARDER TO HEAR It may sound like a weird jungle disease but presbyacusis actually has a far greater impact. With your eyes, presbyopia is a similar condition: when the fine detail is hard to see. Presbyacusis is a progressive, usually bilateral, sensorineural hearing loss ( also known as nerve deafness) that occurs in older people as they age. It is a complex process determined by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It can range from being occasionally annoying to severely disabling in its effects. In moderate-to-severe cases, it can cause the older person to become isolated and depressed. It may also significantly worsen age-related disability/cognitive impairment and dementia. It is easily correctable using rehabilitative measures and its successful treatment can vastly improve quality of life for the older patient. However, the majority of those who would benefit from hearing aids do not present for assessment or use them when issued. Sadly, allowing stories from ‘Grandpa’s time’ to influence your decision against getting help will cause you and your loved ones great concern. Do yourself a favour, book a hearing test with a local and independent hearing clinic. You have

nothing to loses except the mumbles.

Reflux Testing NOW AVAILABLE

Sometimes, the symptoms of reflux are more sinister than heartburn or regurgitation, and could be causing, or contributing to, other health conditions. Contamination of reflux throughout the head and neck can be the cause of ear and sinus infections, sore throat and a difficulty in swallowing. Reflux can also irritate the airways and be aspirated into the lungs causing chronic cough, breathing difficulties, recurring chest infections, bronchitis or pneumonia.



Turning up is a great habit

Phototherapy a great option for skin

Last week I started my eight-week wellbeing program with young people. This program is about helping them to become mentally stronger and more resilient so they can cope with life’s challenges. Following the first session, I reflected that we are all stronger than we realise. There were kids that lived an hour away and had no way of getting there after school or TAFE, so they skateboarded or jumped on multiple buses to attend. Sometimes it’s easy to say, “I can’t do this”, or, “I can’t get there”, but if you really want to grow as a person there is always a way to turn up, achieve the goal and work through your challenges so you can grow those brain/neural pathways to build your resilience one day at a time. Some of the kids that came along last week had valid excuses for not being able to get there but they each made the decision that they wanted to better themselves and were willing to find a way to do so. We are much more resilient than we realise, and at times it’s as simple as just turning up and learning to be temporarily uncomfortable. Turning up becomes a great habit in life, in much the same way that not turning up adds no value to your life.

Phototherapy is a great option to consider for sun damage and to combat age changes. Phototherapy uses nonthermal, non-invasive light to achieve a range of therapeutic outcomes. Modern advances have introduced light-emitting diodes (LED), which has led to clinical application for a variety of medical and cosmetic uses. Phototherapy enhances and accelerates wound healing, decreases scar formation in surgical wounds, has demonstrated clinical benefit in the treatment of psoriasis and is an effective treatment in acne and rosacea. It is also a highly effective method to improve the cosmetic appearance of mild to severe sun-damaged, oily, blemished, and aged skin on all areas of the body. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) combines phototherapy with a photosensitizer agent to be an effective treatment for actinic keratosis, precancerous skin damage, and superficial skin cancers (both basal cell and squamous cell variants). DermaSurg uses MediLUX LED phototherapy technology. This incorporates five different treatment wavelengths (blue, green, yellow, red and infrared) for a wide range of treatment objectives.

The full moon and Saturn light up your sign. So it’s time to tap into the essence of what makes you the quirky and avant-garde Aquarian you were born to be. Don’t let pandemic problems, relationship rumbles, work worries or financial fiascos diminish your style.

REALITY CHECK IN PROPERTY MARKET Realistic prices see the light of day in new conditions. WORDS: Gail Forrer


he boiling hot Sunshine Coast property market is starting to simmer with REIQ Sunshine Coast Zone Chairman Matt Diesel describing the climate as shifting from “nuts to normal”. This is backed up by June quarterly figures recently released from real estate company Domain, which reveal the first decline in house prices in a little more than three years. The figures show a 2.4 per cent quarterly decline - the biggest since 2011. However, they are still almost 21 per cent higher over the past 12 months. While these figures have spurned plenty of talk about a change from a sellers market to a buyers market, Mr Diesel says, “Properties are still selling, but buyers are just not prepared to pay the over-pricing they have been for the last two years.” Despite this, he notes that because of continuing low supply and high demand for Sunshine Coast property, the market is still very active. “It is still a great time for sellers to sell, they are still getting fair market value for their homes.” However, he warns that overpriced properties are either not moving or getting

little traction. He advises that it is crucial to understand the true value of your home prior to marketing. “This ensures you are not over or under pricing the home, allowing for minimal days on market increasing competition for your property, and getting the best all round outcome. Further data shows Sunshine Coast

median house price remained at about $1 million and unit prices declined 1.8 per cent over the quarter to $655,000 - the steepest quarterly decline in three years. Looking at the bigger picture, Ray White economist Nerida Conisbee acknowledges the change in market conditions and says, “The fact is people buy and sell houses every day. They upsize, downsize, move away and move home as

everyone’s personal circumstances are different. Selling is a personal decision.” Furthermore, she says Australian house prices are either declining, or starting to see a more sustainable rate of growth depending on what method you use. “Nevertheless, we’re clearly in a new cycle where the red hot market of 2021 has come to an end. Median house prices have increased by 3.4 per cent in the first five months of this year but this is a distinct slowdown from the 9.8 per cent increase experienced in the final five months of 2021. “The Australian market is high functioning with high turnover, with not too much of a gap between buyers and sellers. We know we’re in a new cycle but there are a number of reasons why prices aren’t likely to drop dramatically. Since the RBA flagged the start of their monetary policy tightening cycle, borrowers were told to expect four to five interest rate rises. As a group we take nothing for granted and know we can achieve competition for property in any market. We’ve been in business for 120 years and right now we continue to defy the headlines.”

RECORD PRICE FOR MOOLOOLABA APARTMENT It’s been a stellar sale week across the board with Nambour also proving to be a hot commodity. WORDS: Gail Forrer.


efine Property agent Grant Whisker has secured the record price of $850,000 for a two-bedroom unit in Mooloolaba’s Seamark on First complex. The trendy unit at 202/29-37 First Avenue, which boasts two bathrooms and car accommodation, was purchased sight unseen via a phone bid by the interstate buyers. Mr Whisker says there were seven registered bidders and about three active bidders vying for the apartment. “There was good, active bidding,” he says. The buyers intend to use the unit as a holiday apartment.

NEW FUTURE FOR WARANA BLOCK A house and land fetched $1.1 million at Warana, but the house won’t last for long as the new owners have an alternative vision for the site. Ray White agent Mandy Leahy says the couple who made the purchase at 17 Bandaroo Street intend to knock down the existing abode to build a dream home to raise their family in the area. There were two registered bidders for the 558m2 block, which is zoned for medium density.

LUCKY NUMBER THREE Ray White agent Michael Scott is celebrating after successfully selling three Nambour properties under the hammer last week. Mr Scott reports there were smiles all round when the four-bedroom, twobathroom home at 7 Dream Court fetched $750,000. “It was a fantastic price,” he says. A retired New South Wales couple have purchased the home. In addition to the fantastic sale, Mr Scott says a two-bedroom unit at 106 Perwillowen Road, Burnside sold for $590,000, while a two-bedroom unit at 7/68 Carter Road, Nambour sold under the hammer for $430,000. The success of the three auctions has secured Mr Scott a 100-per cent clearance rate since the start of the financial year.

SURF REPORT with MWP’s man in the water

The typical mixed bag of conditions for the weekend and week ahead; winds should be offshore early then swinging around to mess thing up. At least we may be clear of the showers. Time to don the colours and settle in for some “Aussie Aussie Aussie” green and gold dominance at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games. Have fun, and as always, play nice.
