Queensland researchers have stumbled upon a process that could harvest carbon dioxide and use it to power technology.

Charging a smartphone could one day be good for the planet after Australian researchers created a generator capable of using greenhouse gas to produce electricity.

The University of Queensland (UQ) discovery, outlined in the journal Nature Communications, uses ions of different sizes to create electricity while removing carbon dioxide from the air.

Scientists behind the development say it might help redeem the gas’s bad reputation and the technology could be expanded in future to charge devices such as smartphones and laptops in a way that

would benefit the environment.

UQ research officer Dr Zhuyuan Wang, from the Dow Centre for Sustainable Engineering Innovation, says he has been working on the project for three years but was surprised to see the nanogenerator consuming carbon dioxide during tests.

“When we saw electrical signals coming out, I was very excited but worried I’d made a mistake,” he says.

“I double-checked everything and it was working correctly. So, I started dreaming about changing the world using this technology.”

The generator creates positive and negative ions of different sizes to create

electricity in a process called ion transport.

To test whether it consumed greenhouse gases, Dr Wang says the team placed the equipment “in a sealed box and we pumped the gas” inside.

Generators used in the research project were small: one is just 4cm wide and another is 6cm long. But Professor Xiwang Zhang says the equipment could be enlarged and made more powerful for future, practical applications.

“We could make a slightly bigger device that is portable to generate electricity to power a mobile phone or a laptop computer using CO2 from the atmosphere,” he says.

“I think this hasn’t been done before and this shows great potential.”

Prof Zhang says researchers could also seek to expand the technology for use on an industrial scale, which could harvest more carbon dioxide and potentially improve the reputation of the maligned gas.

“Until now, CO2 has been seen as a problem to be solved but it can be a resource for the future,” he says.

“We want to realise the value in a problematic greenhouse gas to change the perception.”

Prof Zhang says researchers will continue to refine the technology through the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for Green Electrochemical Transformation of Carbon Dioxide.

The UQ project is not the first to investigate how to use carbon dioxide to generate a source of energy, however, with researchers at MIT and Harvard University in 2023 announcing they had developed a process to convert the gas into a fuel called formate that could be used in a similar way to hydrogen. – AAP.

Online marketplaces are havens for fraudsters, with millions of Australians falling victim, new research shows.

A Finder survey of 1039 respondents revealed one in 10 (10 per cent: equivalent to two million Aussies) have been duped while trying to sell their secondhand goods online. The average victim has lost $560 over the past 12 months.

The research found five per cent were scammed once, while a similar number have been scammed more than once. A further 15 per cent (three million people) were targeted but didn’t get swindled.

Finder money expert Angus Kidman says it is concerning to see scammers targeting the secondhand market.

“There’s a lot of people doing it tough who are selling unwanted items to make some spare cash,” he says.

“But instead of a cash injection, unsuspecting Aussies are falling victim to fraudsters. No matter what type of stuff you’re selling, whether it be video consoles or caravans, criminals will try to take advantage of sellers. Offenders will often urge sellers to accept payment through PayID and arrange a ‘relative’ to collect the item. Never divulge personal information and never click on a link sent to you in text or email associated with the sale, as it could be a virus or worse.”

The tomato is made up of thousands more genes than human beings. In 2012, the full genome of the tomato was sequenced by The Tomato Genome Consortium: a group of researchers from around the globe. It was discovered that tomatoes contain about 35,000 genes, compared with the human genome, which only has about 20,000.

Sunshine Coast veterans remain in service to their community through their work within RSL sub-branches. WORDS: Caitlin Zerafa.

Phillip Wilkins is a spritely character who, at 97 years young, embodies the spirit of the Anzacs.

Trained in explosives during World War II, the veteran today is a valued member of his local RSL sub-branch and is fuelled by no less than eight cups of long black coffee a day.

The Kawana local is passionate about keeping the legacy of Anzac Day in the hearts and minds of locals and has been a pioneer in ensuing his own network of veterans remains connected.

Anzac Day is an opportunity to commemorate and honour all Australian and New Zealand personnel who have served their country across history and continue to serve today.

This year marks 109 years since Anzac troops first landed at Gallipoli during World War I in 1915.

In an effort to keep the day relevant and ensure its meaning is carried on to the next generation, RSL (Returned and Services League) districts across Australia continue to provide a support network for veterans and their families, and education for the community.

Born near Griffith in New South Wales and growing up on a grain, sheep and cattle farm, Mr Wilkins completed his army training near Wagga Wagga. However, the war ended in 1945 before the then 18-year-old was deployed.

“I was in explosives. That’s what I was trained in and I came out with five fingers on each hand, so I was doing all right,” Mr Wilkins says with a laugh.

“They didn’t know what to do with us because the war had ended.

“So, they sent us up to New Guinea and we were there for six months cleaning up after the conflict.

“The harbour was full of sunken ships and our role was to get rid of (ammunition) in a lot of the tunnels.

“It was quite strange. There wasn’t a building standing. Not a thing standing. Even the coconut trees were blown down.

“It was a hostile area, really.”

Mr Wilkins considers himself one of the lucky ones who did not have to serve during active conflict but knows all too well the sacrifice of the Anzacs. His father was in the Light Horse Brigade in World War I and his older brother Frank was in the Air Force during World War II.

“I had a brother who was four years my senior and he joined the Air Force and went down in a Lancaster bombing over Germany and that’s where he’s buried. He was 21 years of age.”

Following his service in the Army, Mr Wilkins went into the building industry with his father where he worked until his retirement in his 70s.

Mr Wilkins moved to the Sunshine

“I sat on my front porch ... thinking how many World War II guys are doing the same ... with nobody to talk to”

Coast 25 years ago and is now part of the Kawana Waters RSL Sub-Branch.

In his more recent years, Mr Wilkins has found a passion for connecting with fellow veterans. This led him to create a group known as the Mouldy Oldies, comprising other World War II veterans at the Kawana Waters Sub-Branch.

“I sat on my front porch one morning, having a cup of coffee, thinking how many World War II guys are doing the same thing this morning with nobody to talk to, just a coffee,” he recalls.

“So, I decided that I’d find out how many were in our sub-branch.

“There were 16 on the books, but only eight of us were mobile and we formed the Mouldy Oldies.

“The eight of the originals are down to two, and I’m one of them. We’ve almost reached the end of the road. We meet once a month and we have coffee and the wives would come along with the veterans, and they still come along.

“All the ladies quite enjoy it. They jabber away and have a great time and I’m proud of that.”

Savvy with technology and computers, and inspired by the little he knew about his own father, Mr Wilkins also encourages sub-branch members around Australia to write down their memories.

“My dad passed away when I was 24 and I hadn’t reached the age where I was hounding him for information and I knew nothing about his early life,” Mr Wilkins says.

“I thought ,‘I’m not going to do that to my kids’. So, I wrote my own, which they all want to read, but I said no way are they reading it while I’m still alive.

“I encouraged others to write their own and there are a few of these around now.”

Mr Wilkins and his late wife Robin raised three children and shared seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

“I’m proud of my family,” he says.

Speaking on the relevance of Anzac Day in today’s world, Mr Wilkins says it is heartwarming to see younger generations embrace the tradition, evident in the growth in attendees at local services.

“It’s important that we are still aware of what (veterans) did,” he says.

“I think of my dad … and my brother in the Air Force.

“My dad was in the trenches for three years. I think of my life and how much better it was than his. Even though it was rough, it was better than his.

“I respect them and I think people should remember that and I hope they do.

“I go to the dawn service regularly and the crowds are getting bigger.

“It’s not dying off, it’s getting bigger and the kids are getting up at four o’clock in the morning to go.”

Kawana Waters RSL Sub-Branch deputy president Gary Penney agrees that Anzac Day is remaining relevant in today’s

society: “When I first came to Kawana, I think we had 4000 people at the dawn service and now we are getting 6000 or more.”

The retired Royal Australian Air Force Wing Commander, who served from 1979 to 2004, says Anzac Day is not about glorifying war.

“Anzac Day, I think, is about choice,” Mr Penney says.

“That choice was given to us by (veterans). Choice is a gift and gifts always come with a purchase tag and that was more than 103,000 lives lost by Australians over the wars.”

Mr Penney says the lives lost do not account for the number of mental and physical wounds of servicemen and women, including the ramifications on today’s veterans from multiple tours of Afghanistan.

He says the RSL continues to look at how it can best support modern-day veterans and their needs.

“We’ve come a long way, but there is still so much more to be done,” he says.

“You look at World War I and II, Vietnam and Korea – they went for 12 months or a few years and then the veterans came home.

“Not Afghanistan.

“We’ve got a veteran in the sub-branch that did seven rotations there and that was difficult on him.”

Local RSL sub-branches and the Department of Veteran affairs support veterans on the Sunshine Coast. Just this year, a new Veteran and Family Wellbeing Centre opened in Maroochydore.

“Here on the Coast, we have 12,500 veterans – that’s from the last Census,” Mr Penney says.

“If you multiply that by at least three, you’ve got the veterans and their families, because families are always impacted.”

RSL Sunshine Coast District president Grendell Antony is encouraging the local community to instil the Anzac spirit in everyday life.

“Today, we acknowledge the 1.5 million service personnel who have

served our country in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations, and their contribution towards our way of life,” he says.

“We encourage the community to embrace the Anzac spirit – values which were created by the Anzacs on the morning of the Gallipoli landing.

“The Anzac spirit is about being there for your mates, giving back to your community and remembering those that bravely went before you.

“We believe it’s so important for our local communities to take the time to recognise and pay tribute to the individuals who have and continue to serve for our country.”

How you can honour veterans at home today

RSL Queensland is encouraging people of all ages to honour the spirt of Anzac Day and has put together some easy and child-friendly ideas to mark this day of remembrance.

Bake some Anzac biscuits

There are few things tastier than Anzac Day biscuits fresh out of the oven. Be sure to check out our recipe in this week’s Homegrown feature (page 27). This is also a good way to share the history of the humble Anzac biscuit with your helpers over a cuppa.

Plant a rosemary bush

The rosemary stem is a traditional symbol of remembrance on Anzac Day. And for all the green thumbs out there, this is the ideal opportunity to add a lowmaintenance and evergreen plant to your garden as a symbol of commemoration all-year round.

Reflect on your family history

Many families have ties to wartime and this Anzac Day is a chance to share these stories down the generations, keeping the memory of loved ones alive. Resources such as the State Library of Queensland’s First 5 Forever Program offer plenty of tips for having a conversation with young ones about the history of Anzac Day.

Passing on the traditions of our Anzac spirit

While the gap widens from World War I and II to today, honouring Anzac Day allows young people to understand the sacrifices that veterans have made in years gone by and to say thank you in person to our modern-day heroes.

This year, RSL Queensland once again has run its Postcards of Honour initiative.

The initiative encourages Queensland’s youngest generation to express its personal connection to Anzac Day. In 2024, more than 20,640 students are taking part across 270 Queensland schools, including those at Bli Bli State School.

A veteran from the Mudjimba RSL Sub-Branch visited the school recently, speaking to the students about April 25 and helping them create their own postcard, which includes a message to a veteran on one side and an illustration on the other.

RSL Queensland state president Major General Stephen Day says he is pleased to see the age-appropriate initiative continue and grow, year on year.

“This initiative was developed with the purpose of engaging the next generation and connecting young people to the power and meaning behind the ANZAC spirit,” he says.

“It may seem like a small gesture, but the postcards act as such a meaningful keepsake and are truly valued by the veterans who receive them.”

The activity has been created to pay homage to the vital support that letters and postcards have played throughout Australia’s military history.

The Curated Plate showcases the region’s produce and beverages, restaurants, food artisans and producers across a 10-day celebration.

Afood market featuring handcrafted cheeses, breads, chocolates and a craft beer and spirits festival on the banks of a river have been added to the program of a Sunshine Coast culinary showcase.

The menu has just been served up for the region’s premier food and drink festival,

The Curated Plate, which will take place between July 26 and August 4 this year.

The 2024 program features three signature events, including two new ones.

The Sunny Coast Breweries and Distilleries Festival will showcase ‘Australia’s craft beer capital’. A range of craft beer and premium spirits will be

available in a relaxed festival atmosphere at Cotton Tree Park on July 27 and 28.

Another signature event will be a one-off food market for families and food lovers, to be held at The Station, Birtinya.

The event will open its doors to more than 70 stallholders showcasing Sunshine Coast products and giving patrons the chance to fill up their pantries and indulge in a diverse array of flavours and delights.

With the support of the Food and Agribusiness Network (FAN), stalls will showcase Sunshine Coast farm-made produce, including handcrafted cheeses, artisanal breads and pastries, boutique chocolates, grass-fed beef and lamb, local honey and premium coffee and tea.

In addition to the signature events, the program will feature a variety of experiences including cooking classes, culinary cruises, degustation dinners, long lunches and brunches, farm tours and high teas.

Sunshine Coast Mayor Rosanna Natoli says it is time for the region’s cooks and chefs to shine as they serve up delicious dishes, featuring homegrown produce and products.

“This event provides the opportunity for our region to showcase its fantastic offerings,” Mayor Natoli says.

“This ranges from our plentiful produce to an array of stunning restaurants

and our amazing producers.

“More than 200 businesses from across the region’s food and agribusiness sector and tourism and hospitality industry have worked together to prepare the 10-day food and drink showcase that has more than 90 delicious events to choose from.”

The 75 daily moves is made up of movement where you push, pull, squat, hinge, paddle, stroke, jump, pedal, step, wiggle – as long as your moving. For example, you may choose to do 75 squats or take an extra 75 steps by taking a walk in your lunch break. Participants can alternate moves, mix and match them, make them harder or make them easier. There is no official tracker for monitoring moves. So, it will be up to each individual to pledge their commitment and stay accountable to completing the challenge each day.

for physical activity.

Jetts Australia CEO and managing director Elaine Jobson says the Sunshine Coast is the ideal location for a fitness challenge.

“The Sunshine Coast just loves to get active,” she says.

“We play host to some of Asia-Pacific’s best sporting participation events and … we average 300-plus days of sunshine a year, making it a great place to get outside and be active.

“We are also a big community that enjoys supporting each other and getting together for something fun.

“The Million Moves initiatives will be great fun for everyone. So, grab the kids and even the grandparents to hit 75 moves a day in May.”

A new exercise initiative is challenging Coast residents to complete 75 moves a day in May to increase their physical activity levels.

Residents across the region are being encouraged to move more for the month of May as data reveals the staggering number of Aussies who don’t get enough daily exercise.

Australia’s peak body for the exercise and active health sector, AUSactive, is on a mission to encourage greater physical

activity among Australians, starting with the Sunshine Coast and surrounds.

Known as the Million Moves challenge, it calls on the region’s four electorates to battle it out to reach one million moves each over 21 days.

Starting on May 1, people in Fisher, Fairfax, Wide Bay and Longman are invited to join the challenge and complete

75 moves a day, to help their electorate reach the milestone first.

Local MPs including Andrew Wallace, Ted O’Brien, Llew O’Brien and Terry Young are among the event’s advocates, alongside Australian fitness ambassadors including Kayla Itsines and Guy Leech.

The Australian Institute of Health and Wellbeing estimates that 75 per cent of adults aged 18-64 do not meet the physical activity and musclestrengthening components of the World Health Organisation guidelines

AUSactive CEO Barrie Elvish says one of the association’s priorities is to get more Australians physically active more often and the Million Moves initiative is a challenge to inspire the community to build a regular fitness routine.

“Inactivity is the second-leading risk factor contributing to chronic disease in Australia and it’s preventable,” he says.

“Getting more active is essential for our physical and mental health and it can be as simple as a regular walk.”

The Buderim Foundation has replaced a van for vital animal work.

Alocal animal shelter will now have a more-convenient way to transport rescue cats and dogs after almost 12 months of fundraising.

The Sunshine Coast Animal Refuge (SCARS) has unveiled its new, vibrantly wrapped vehicle – thanks to grants from the Buderim Foundation, Rotary Club of

Sunshine Coast Central and individual donations from local supporters.

SCARS patron Penny Brischke says the initiative to raise funds for a new vehicle started in May last year when the refuge’s existing vehicle was taken off the road due to old age.

“When our old refuge van finally gave up, it was clear we would need the

support of our community and local organisations as large transport vehicles are a significant financial investment,” she says. “We are so grateful for the generosity we have been shown with this project.”

Buderim Foundation chair Rod McKinnon says the organisation is pleased to award SCARS $10,000 as part of the 2023 Community Grants program.

“Our domestic pets play an important part in many of our lives, and we are very pleased to assist SCARS to purchase this van which helps them in their vital work to ensure animals in need are cared for properly,” Mr McKinnon says.

Ms Brischke says the most critical use of the refuge vehicle is to transport cats and dogs that require speciality medical treatment at an external veterinary clinic.

“However, we also utilise our van to take dogs on out-of-refuge walks, to collect food donations, to bring in animals for veterinary care when the owner is homeless and to drop off or collect animals from foster carers or the council pound when required.

The Buderim Foundation Community Grants program offers up to $10,000 for local organisations with initiatives that make a positive impact on the Buderim community.

Applications for the 2024 program open in May. Visit


An awards program that recognises the hard work and dedication of the local business community is gearing up to launch its 29th year.

Regional businesses are invited to celebrate Queensland Small Business Month at an annual breakfast on May 2 – an event that will also mark the launch of the Sunshine Coast Business Awards.

Awards chair Jennifer Swaine says the breakfast is a chance to share, learn, collaborate and celebrate.

“It’s more important than ever before for the Sunshine Coast’s small business community to thrive,” she says.

“Each year, the diversity of organisations who enter the awards increases and it’s rewarding to see a range of industries represented.”

Ms Swaine says the Maroochy RSL breakfast is an opportunity to gain inspiration to enter the 2024 awards.

“There are 17 categories, with small and large for each, so there is one suitable for every type of business, regardless of size, and we want to encourage as many businesses from across the region to enter as possible,” she says.

Visit for tickets and sunshinecoastbusinessawards. for awards information.

An Olympic champion and grandmother shares tips to live life to the fullest in her new wellness book.

Lisa Curry is a beloved Australian sporting champion and Sunshine Coast local. A triple Olympian, mother of three and grandmother of three, she has certainly had her fair share of highs and lows.

Lisa experienced a stage of having to re-learn her body, what movements worked for her and re-train her brain when considering her health, mindfulness and overall wellbeing. Age played a big role in these changes, along with many lifestyle alterations. Her new book Happy Healthy You is about cutting through the diet fads and health crazes and learning to apply simple principles, techniques, exercises and easy eating habits to your everyday life.

What prompted you to write this book?

– We have over half-a-million women who we speak to on various channels through social media and email, and have so many fabulous articles and information, but it can be overwhelming for many busy women. We selected the best, most-simple and easiest information on wellness and health.

What can readers expect from the book?

– Delicious recipes that you know are good for your health, light-bulb moments as you read about the four pillars of health and

how to really live with energy and vitality and not just exist and accept illness and disease as a normal part of living.

You focus on four pillars in the book. Can you share more about that? – If I asked you to look after your self on a daily basis, then I would ask you to think about S for sleep: are you getting enough quality sleep? E for exercise: are you moving every day, getting your heart rate up and getting a bit of a sweat up each day? L is for lifestyle: are you living the way you want and being mindful of your surroundings, environment and people who you spend time with? F is for food: do you eat well most of the time? Are you eating for energy? Do you know that good food can help heal your body and mind? These four pillars of health are essential for a healthy body and life.

Who will this book appeal to? – The book will resonate across all demographics as prevention and education is our main focus in everything we do. I want to emphasise to everyone that it’s never too late to start changing habits and making a difference to your life. Remember: nothing changes if nothing changes.

You work with naturopath, Jeff Butterworth, on this book. Tell us more

about this partnership? – Working with Jeff is always a learning experience as he’s so knowledgeable and while we have so much information on our website, the hardest part was deciding what to add to the book. Re-reading the book always reinforces what the most important things are to live by.

There are some great recipes in the book. Tell us more about that – Jeff’s wife Katrina is a foodie and photographer. So, most of the gorgeous meals they created and photographed together. They have eaten like this for the past 20 years. So, if you’ve ever wondered how a naturopath eats, this is it. My greatest wish would be to have someone make these meals, snacks and drinks for me every single day. I’m not a great cook and to me, cooking has always been a bit of a chore. With a busy life and busy kids, mealtime was always a bit of a rush. But now I truly realise the importance and benefits of nutritious meals. I live by the 80/20 rule. It’s what you do and what you eat ‘most of the time’ that gives you flexibility and enjoyment in life. When eating healthy, I live by what my mum used to say: buy small and eat it all.

“We ignite not in light but in the lack thereof”.

Is it menopause or does everyone cry when they watch the news these days?

As we honour our Anzacs and those serving across the world, I wonder what lessons we’ve learned from history. Two things I know from working at Wishlist is that, firstly, when you break it down to its most fundamental, life is about love and loss (thanks, Kate Langbroek). The other is that when love is under threat, and loss looms large, the kind gesture of a complete stranger can mean so much.

At Wishlist, we see the good in humankind every day – whether it be in the devotion of our health heroes, the generosity of our supporters, or the warmth of a volunteer’s smile when you return to your room at Wishlist Centre after spending the day beside your husband in ICU. I was recently in

Hiroshima. While confronted by the atrocity of war, I heard such incredible stories of human kindness and tenacity.

The Sumitomo Bank was one of the only buildings left standing when the atomic bomb exploded 600m above the city on August 6, 1945. In the split second after detonation, temperatures on the ground reached 3-4000 degrees Celsius, instantly killing 140,000 people including the 29 employees inside the bank.

Within three days, the surviving members of staff returned to the decimated bank and, suffering burns and injuries and radiation sickness themselves, proceeded to pay out their surviving customers. The city was reduced to ash, their homes flattened, their families gone, their normal world replaced by a void of uncertainty, pain and fear – and these people return to work to ensure survivors had access to their money. All financial records were destroyed in the blast. So, the bank employees trusted the word of their clients as to how much they had in the bank –and later the bank discovered that their customers had all told the truth.

I’ll always remember this. It will remind me forever of the strength and resilience of the human spirit, the need we each have for purpose in our days, and that for most of us, our purpose is love.

Jane Stephens warns that we need to enforce e-scooter laws, so riders and pedestrians aren’t risking life and limb on roads and paths.

HOOSH. She flew past me from behind as if on a hovercraft, skimming my elbow as I ran along the path in the early morning light.

As she evaporated into the grainy foreground, I could see she was atop an e-scooter but she was flying – or a hair’s breadth from it. I may have emitted an audible “whoa!” in fright, with the sight and report of too many collisions and close calls bouncing high behind my wide eyes.

What are we to do about the e-scooters?

How do we find a way to live with these vehicles alternately deemed our saviours from car clutter and the scourge of our paths and roadways? Blood is being spilt.

This month alone: a woman had to be cut from her vehicle after a crash with an e-scooter south of Brisbane; an e-scooter rider was hit by a car on the Gold Coast Highway; and a 14-year-old boy in Bundaberg died of horrendous head injuries after coming off an e-scooter without a helmet.

While many riders follow the rules, there are far too many ‘lucky miss’ situations hourly around the Coast. Hooligans scoot up the middle of the road,

and yahoos pass too close and zoom on and off paths and roads – all at a rate of knots, well beyond anything legal or safe.

No one is denying e-scooters are a fabulous invention, nor that they are excellent fun. They help ease traffic congestion, get people from A to B easily in the great outdoors, and are affordable and portable. But they have become like cockroaches, causing pedestrians to scatter and shriek. They have become the carriages of the young and the restless, the wild and the careless.

Other nations have been tormented about what to do about e-scooters, too. Paris is the first European city to ban rented ones. Britain has banned them from trains and platforms. Let’s not agitate to change the rules just yet. Instead, enforce the laws we have. Wear helmets. Don’t double your mates. Be 16 years or older. Stay off roads that have dividing lines. Stick to a sedate speed on local streets. In Queensland, that means 12kmh on footpaths and 25kmh on bike paths and local streets.

Let’s hit reset, remind the wheeled speedsters that we share our commuting spaces, and come down hard in applying existing laws.

Sami Muirhead finds the possible secret to a long and happy life – and it lies between the loving arms of ‘Swelce’ and some fine homewares bargains.

he world’s oldest man shares his three tips for living a long, happy life.’ I was recently scrolling through my daily news feed when I saw that headline.

Nestled in between a Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce update and an ad for 20 per cent off homewares was an article that could change my life. Surely there were nuggets of gold. A healthy 111-year-old must be doing something right. I had to find out his secrets.

I clicked on and read with bated breath. Was it going to be some kind of magic elixir he learned to make from his grandma, or an ancient Buddhist breathing technique? John Tinniswood still gets himself in and out of bed. He manages his own finances. What is the key to being 111 years young?

Fish and chips. Yep, you heard me: fish and chips. Mr Tinniswood doesn’t follow a specific diet, and told Guinness World Records: “I eat what they give me, and so does everybody else” – apart from having the British classic, battered fish and chips, for dinner every Friday.

“If you drink too much or you eat too much or you walk too much, if you do too

much of anything, you’re going to suffer eventually,” he says. So, “never over-tax your system” for a healthy life. He adds: “But no matter what you’re doing, always do the best you can, whether you’re learning something or whether you’re teaching someone. Give it all you’ve got. Otherwise, it’s not worth bothering with.”

I must admit, I was a little deflated by these seemingly bland life hacks. Don’t walk too much, eat fish and chips and do your best. Not exactly a revelation in 2024, Mr Tinniswood! I’ll go back to getting my life hacks from Instagram, thanks.

But as I went to click back to Taylor and Travis, I stopped to re-read the article. Mr Tinniswood doesn’t seem inspiring in 2024 because he is from 1912. He doesn’t care about the same things we do today. He isn’t searching for more money, friends or stuff.

He’s not worried about going to the gym to get a six-pack or working weekends to get a pay rise. Imagine rewriting your own goals and using the words ‘less’ in them. Less technology, less stress, less homewares, less go-go-go, but more Friday night takeaway. Who’s life goals wouldn’t be better with this advice? I know mine would.

The Treasurer announced on February 28, 2023, that starting from the 2025–26 financial year, a concessional tax rate of 30 per cent (rather than the standard rate of 15 per cent) would apply to future earnings above $3 million.

Treasury later released draft legislation on October 3, 2023, for consultation on a new Division 296 tax, applicable from the same financial year.

As of now, this draft legislation has not been introduced into parliament or enacted into law.

Under the proposed changes, a fund’s ‘earnings’ will encompass unrealised gains, with no refunds during years of negative earnings, and the $3 million threshold will remain static without indexing.

It’s crucial to clarify that the additional Division 296 tax of 15 per cent doesn’t apply to all earnings above $3 million, contrary to common belief.

Rather, it effectively applies to an increase in a member’s balance due to unrealised capital gains.

Moreover, while complying superannuation funds receive a 1/3 CGT discount for realised capital gains, for assets held greater than 12 months, no such discount is proposed for Division 296 tax calculations.

The process begins with determining ‘basis earnings’ which represent the annual movement across a member’s total super balance after adjustments, over the financial year.

These earnings are then proportioned based on the excess of the member’s total super balance over the $3 million threshold, and the additional 15 per cent tax is applied to this amount.

The tax is calculated by the ATO and levied on the individual, who can choose to pay it personally or have it released from one or more of their super funds.

Despite concerns about the changes diminishing the attractiveness of superannuation, it is still the best retirement savings vehicle we have in this country.

It offers asset protection and, in many cases, the eventual tax rate on asset sales remains lower than with other structures: the pension phase is a 0 per cent tax environment.

Individuals affected by these changes should consider this aspect, even if they find the changes unwelcome.

Although the super environment is the favoured retirement savings vehicle, there may be circumstances where other structures such as personal investment, a family trust or company may be beneficial.

It never hurts to start the strategic planning early. So, get to it.

It’s important to discuss your situation with a financial adviser to ensure any strategies are implemented correctly and whether they may be relevant to you. As always, tread carefully.

Health ministers want to see proposed e-cigarette laws passed.

Australia’s health ministers are calling on the federal parliament to introduce proposed strong vaping laws as soon as possible to prevent devastating impacts to children’s health.

New legislation was introduced in March to stop the importation, manufacture, supply and commercial possession of disposable single-use vapes, making the e-cigarettes only accessible via prescription at pharmacies. The crackdown would also see jail time or fines up to $2.2 million for breaches.

Health ministers from every jurisdiction have called on the Australian parliament to pass the legislation which would take effect from July, amid a growing nicotine crisis for young people.

“Tobacco control started in Australia 50 years ago with advertising. Years later, our understanding of the devastating health impacts continues to evolve,” health ministers said in a joint statement recently.

“Australian health ministers are not going to stand by and let history repeat itself.”

They are concerned the impact vaping is having on Australian children due to the easy access and how readily available e-cigarettes are.

Most are sold at convenience stores, often down the road from schools.

“It’s now clear vapes are being used to recruit a new generation to nicotine addiction, and it’s working,” the health ministers said.

The latest national data reveals one-in-six high school students recently vaped, and young people who vape are three-times more likely to take up smoking.

Federal Health Minister Mark Butler says the bill is not about prohibition but regulation and returning the devices to what they were originally sold as: therapeutic products.

“I mean, it’s no more prohibition than the reforms that took place around the availability of codeine,” he says.

“What that did was return codeine to the regulation as a therapeutic good, and that’s what we’re doing with e-cigarettes.”

The legislation is yet to pass through parliament as it is facing potential opposition from the Coalition and the Greens who have not given a stance. – AAP.

Anzac flavour

Traditionally pinned to lapels or medals on Anzac Day, rosemary has been a symbol of remembrance since ancient times.

But rosemary became especially significant to Anzac Day following World War I. Native to the Mediterranean coast, rosemary grows wild on the slopes of the Gallipoli Peninsula. As the tale goes, a wounded digger brought home a small rosemary bush from Anzac Cove. He planted it in the grounds of the Army Hospital at Keswick, South Australia, and cuttings from that bush have been used to propagate rosemary plants across Australia. Since then, Australians and New Zealanders have worn sprigs of rosemary on Anzac Day in memory of the fallen. If you have some in your herb garden, don’t forget to add it to your cooking in honour of April 25. And did you know, Nutworks has rosemary and sea salt-flavoured macadamias – yum!

Many Australians enjoy a ‘gunfire breakfast’ between the Anzac Day dawn service and midmorning march. A gunfire breakfast typically involves rum-laced coffee or tea, and hot food such as bacon and eggs. It is a chance for veterans – and often other community members – to enjoy shared camaraderie. The custom stems from ‘gunfire’: a mix of rum and black tea, dating back to at least the 1890s. It was made by British Army soldiers – likely as a warming dash of morale or liquid courage ahead of the day’s battle – and later adopted by Australian and New Zealand forces.

There is something truly special about cooking from a recipe that is tied to emotions and events long past. Not only does this give us a window into our rich history, but it also inspires us to remember and reflect through a means so much more immersive than words. This Anzac Day, Nutworks is acknowledging and paying tribute to those who served by giving a Queensland twist to this recipe, which was published in a Rockhampton newspaper on Saturday, August 14, 1926.


• 2 cups rolled oats

• ½ cup sugar

• 1 cup roughly chopped raw Nutworks macadamias

• 1 cup plain flour

• ½ cup melted butter

• 1 tbs golden syrup

• 2 tbs boiling water

• 1 tsp bicarbonate soda.


1. Preheat oven to 170°C.

2. Combine dry ingredients, including macadamias.

3. Mix golden syrup, boiling water and bicarbonate soda until they froth. Add melted butter.

4. Combine butter mixture and dry ingredients.

5. Drop teaspoons of mixture onto a floured tray, allowing room for spreading.

6. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes.

There really is no single solution, food or herb that will be the ultimate in immune system health. It’s a combination of many factors and emotions in the person.

Food, stress, movement, sunlight, sleep, internal organ function, nervous system, adrenal glands, fresh water – we can check on these to help boost our immune strength and put up a good fight.

Consuming fresh, organic wholefoods will help our body perform as best as possible, but feeding it sugar-loaded goods, preservatives and synthetic ingredients we don’t even recognise can be detrimental to our overall health.

What else should I be doing?

Good hygiene – as viruses are easily spread, prevention begins with washing your hands regularly and avoiding close contact with people who are sick.

Stay hydrated – drink plenty of good-quality water each day and take note of your intake of caffeine (including herbal teas) which, if excessive, can deplete us. Coconut water, strawberries, watermelon and cucumber are fantastic for hydrating our cells.

Rest – our bodies need time out to repair and rebuild. As well as ensuring you are getting good-quality sleep, you can also look at resting your digestive system with intermittent fasting.

Limit or avoid excess sugar –processed, sugary foods can feed disease growth and inhabit our immune response to help fight off infection. Switch your mindset that a ‘treat’ can be a piece of juicy fruit, dark chocolate or a medjool date dunked in peanut butter.

Look after your stress responses and anxiety levels – maybe now is the time to

take up meditation practices. If you need to, limit the time you spend around excess media, social channels and even negative people who can start to induce those overwhelming feelings. Naturopaths can also recommend some adrenal fatigue support such as B vitamins and magnesium to promote overall calm.

Sunshine and movement – it’s important to access some natural sunlight daily, plus fresh air and movement. Whether it’s a walk outside, a run, yoga, weights or tai chi, movement and exercise can provide an enormous amount of benefit for the body and mind.

Make yourself a tonic – good ol’ lemon, honey and ginger works wonders on the soul, as well as the immune system.

Here’s five natural remedies to support your immunity.

Top up your Vitamin C intake by consuming Vitamin C-rich foods and boost that with extra supplements to strengthen your immunity in the lead-up to winter. Foods high in phytoestrogens (naturally occurring plant compounds that can mimic the effects of estrogen in the body) can help balance hormones. Leafy greens, citrus, capsicum and strawberries are great.

Look after your gut health –incorporate fermented and prebiotic foods into your diet. Foods such as

sauerkraut, kimchi, miso soup, kefir and kombucha all help to colonise your gut, while prebiotic foods including garlic, onions, green banana starch and chicory root provide the fuel for your gut microbes to feed and flourish. Sip on bone broth throughout the day or add extra nutrition into your family meals. In particular, amino acids in chicken-bone broth such as cysteine and glycine are building blocks for important immunomodulating factors in the body. The basis of strong immunity begins in the gut.

Olive leaf extract – this is a powerful antioxidant source that can boost our immune system response to fight infection. It also helps to fight free radicals (nasty molecules that can accumulate in the body and can attack the immune system and cause inflammation). Check out Comvita Olive Leaf Extract, with fresh extract coming straight from olives tress in Southeast Queensland.

Elderberry – the antioxidant power of berries is widely known, and elderberries are no exception, associated with immune support and helping prevent common cold symptoms and inflammation.

Potent herbs such as astragalus, Siberian ginseng, andrographis, echinacea, elderflower, reishi and thyme have all been used for their anti-viral, antibacterial, immune-boosting properties. Products such as Fusion Health Activiral and Vitamin C 1000 Advanced are all useful.

‘Train, play, stay and compete’ is the new mantra for the Sunshine Coast as the region plays host to world-class teams and events.

The recent surge in world-class sporting events gracing our shores is not merely a spectacle. It’s a testament to the Sunshine Coast’s ascent as a highperformance destination to train, play, stay and compete.

Just this month, more than 8100 surf sports competitors went head to head across our pristine beaches over nine action-packed days (April 13-21) as part of the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships, known as ‘The Aussies’.

For the first time since 2021, the largest surf lifesaving event in the world was hosted on the Sunshine Coast across three of our world-renowned beaches: Alexandra Headland, Maroochydore and

Mooloolaba. This event was expected to deliver an economic contribution of almost $15 million to our economy and provide a welcome boost for many local businesses experiencing quieter times after the Easter school holidays.

National titles such as The Aussies help cement our region as a premier destination for major events, provide a rare opportunity for local athletes to compete against the best on their home shores, and for residents to enjoy a great spectacle.

In addition, the upcoming The Rugby Championship Under-20 tournament (May), Mitsubishi Motors NBL1 National Finals (August) and the World Lacrosse Women’s Qualifier (2025) will all help

solidify our status as an ideal sports training and event destination.

The Rugby Championship Under-20 tournament from May 2-12 further underscores the Sunshine Coast’s commitment to hosting elite sporting competitions.

The championship will see the up-and-coming rugby stars of Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa do battle at the Sunshine Coast Stadium.

Rugby union is considered a highpriority sport for our region, with a long-term strategy to attract elite athletes and national teams to train, stay and play here in the lead-up to key events including the British and Irish Lions Tour (2025), Rugby World Cups (2027 and 2029) and the Olympic and Paralympic Games Brisbane 2032.

Basketball enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the NBL1 National Finals, in which the best of the best will converge at the University of Sunshine Coast and Caloundra Indoor Stadium from August 16-18, where the National Champions will be crowned.

The event will give local fans and our young players the chance to see some of their idols up close, and further strengthen basketball’s profile locally.

Basketball is booming across our courts and backyards.

And this will continue with a planned Sunshine Coast Indoor Sports Centre which is proposed to host basketball games at the Olympic and Paralympic Games Brisbane 2032.

Looking ahead, the Coast is gearing up to welcome the Asia Pacific’s best women’s field lacrosse players for the 2025 ASPAC Championship – World Lacrosse Women’s Qualifier from January 6-11 next year.

Set to take place at the Kawana Sports Precinct, this event presents an invaluable

opportunity to showcase our region’s first-class facilities and further solidify our reputation as a destination for sports training and competition.

Beyond the thrill of competition, these events play a crucial role in positioning the region as a globally competitive hub while creating opportunities that strengthen our local economy, now and into the future.

As the spotlight continues to shine on our vibrant region, the future of sports on the Coast is brighter than ever before.

Navigating the property market can often feel like steering a ship through stormy seas fraught with hidden reefs and shifting currents.

This is where a buyers’ agent, an often-underestimated ally, becomes indispensable, especially in sought-after areas such as the Sunshine Coast.

For potential buyers, the property search is not just about finding a house.

It’s about discovering a place to call home or making a strategic investment – all while avoiding common pitfalls and maximising value.

For many, the primary challenge lies in accessing off-market properties or new listings before they are swept off the market. There’s also the complex paperwork, fierce competition at auctions, and the deep-seated fear of overpaying or missing out on the ideal property. The emotional weight of purchasing a home can cloud judgment, leading to rushed decisions or prolonged searches that drain time and resources.

The role of a buyers’ agent: this is where the expertise of a buyers’ agent such as those at Ocean Buyers Agency becomes invaluable. A buyers’ agent works exclusively for the buyer, not the seller. They delve into the buyer’s needs and preferences to scout out properties that aren’t just houses, but potential homes or wise investments. They bring to the table rigorous market analysis, extensive networks and negotiating prowess that individual buyers typically lack.

Exclusive access and negotiation: Ocean Buyers Agency, for instance, grants access to a plethora of off-market listings: properties that you won’t find advertised on the usual real estate

platforms. These properties often represent opportunities to secure better value and privacy. Moreover, the agency’s deep-seated local connections ensure you receive insider information, from future area developments to subtle market shifts, ensuring you make an informed decision.

Streamlined processes and emotional support: more than just deal brokers, buyers’ agents manage the entire buying process from start to finish – arranging inspections, negotiating prices, handling paperwork and even bidding at auctions. This not only alleviates stress but also saves time, allowing buyers to focus on what truly matters: their future in the property. The emotional support and assurance that a professional is advocating for their interests can transform a taxing experience into a pleasurable journey.

In essence, partnering with a buyers’ agent such as Ocean Buyers Agency doesn’t just alleviate typical buying pains. It enhances the entire experience, ensuring that every aspect of your property purchase on the Coast is handled with expert care and personalised attention.

Separation is difficult. When you think about the changes impacting you, your children or your financial position, it is understandable to expect some general anxiety and a few awkward, frustrating and confronting discussions to be had with your former partner.

Whether you need to divide your property or make plans to parent children in your new family situation, communication in some form is still necessary.

public forum can be very risky to your family law negotiations. Making negative or threatening comments on social media can be detrimental to your legal position. Your comments on social media can be used in evidence if your dispute proceeds to court. Take care with how you, your friends or relatives express any feelings on social media about your separation.

Tip 2 –sharing is not caring: any advice that you receive from a lawyer about your separation is provided to you based on your instructions and will attempt to address your legal interests. Receiving advice from your lawyer in writing or otherwise is provided to you by your advocate about your legal rights and responsibilities. Publishing or reproducing legal advice to your ex or other third parties to prove a point may make your case vulnerable and may result in your right to confidentiality and solicitor/client privilege being waived. Speak to your family lawyer about what is and is not appropriate to share with your ex. Is there a way forward? – tensions that are present in the early stages of separation may be addressed with the assistance of third-party professionals. There are services that do not involve lawyers that can assist, including individual or family therapy, or you can contact a family relationship centre.

In parenting matters, tense communication can be managed with the assistance of a parenting app. Parenting apps include features for information sharing, calendars for important occasions and messaging or video-call services. There are a range of parenting apps available with ranging functionality and cost.

If you have engaged a family lawyer, you should expect communication to be clear, relevant and respectful between all parties and the representatives. Private mediation has the benefit of the parties jointly selecting a mediator with the assistance of their lawyers. Mediation may be conducted in an ‘all-in’, round-table conference or by ‘shuttle’ where parties remain in separate rooms and the mediator will communicate separately, sharing information by agreement.

The Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia requires parties to at least attempt mediation, which can be through a service or a private conference, before commencing proceedings (subject to some exceptions, including where domestic and family violence has been a feature of your relationship).

If you have any questions in relation to negotiating issues following separation, including dispute resolution alternatives, contact Nicole Dawson at Pathway Legal at

Backpackers comp

Australia’s Working Holiday Maker (WHM) visa allows travellers aged 18-30 to explore the country for 12 months while taking on short-term employment.

Many of these young travellers, commonly known as ‘backpackers’, find themselves working various jobs in rural areas to fund their Australian holiday and extend their visa. Those who complete three months of specified work in a rural area may be able to apply for a secondyear visa .

Backpackers bring great benefits to regional communities. But while this experience can be rewarding, rural work on farms and the like is not without its risk.

These jobs typically involve physically demanding tasks that may be unfamiliar to them, increasing the likelihood of accidents and injuries.

Employers are legally obligated to provide appropriate training, supervision, and equipment to ensure workplace safety. If a worker on a work visa is injured at work, they have the right to access workers’ compensation benefits.

By prioritising workplace health and safety, and access to workers’ compensation, we can create a positive and safe environment for unskilled workers.

Afterall, they play a vital role in various industries in Australia, and in regional communities facing extensive labour shortages.


A matter of trust

Discretionary family trusts aren’t just for the super wealthy.

They are a common asset protection and tax-minimisation tool for thousands of Australian families.

They often include a long list of potential beneficiaries.

It’s probably fair to say, over the years Trustees have become a bit blasé about strictly observing some of the obligations imposed on them – with mum and dad running the show, exercising ‘absolute discretion’ steering funds to whoever they liked (including themselves) and excluding other beneficiaries.

Well, the Victorian Court of Appeal has recently given all Trustees a wake-up call about carrying out their duties.

The Court declared that two adult children had been unfairly repeatedly overlooked for distributions from the family trust and that the Trustees (the parents) had failed to properly exercise their discretion.

The Court confirmed a Trustee has to give real and genuine consideration as to who should benefit, including making inquiries of the beneficiaries’ needs.

How a Trustee goes about this is uncertain. It may mean that the Trustee should be informed of the circumstances of each of the numerous potential beneficiaries.

It might be time to blow the dust off your trust deed and actually review it and its primary purpose.

Have you considered financial year end tax planning 2024?

Now is the time to book in your preyear-end tax planning. There is still time left to minimise your tax obligations. Items to review before June 30:

• personal superannuation contributions.Talk to your advisor about whether making personal super contributions into your elected super fund may be a great option to minimise tax

• concessional contributions. The concessional contributions cap for 2023–24 is $30,000. Review super bring-forward rules and carry forward super contributions. Chat to your accountant/advisor in relation to these

• instant asset write off – 2024. A business will be eligible to immediately write off the total cost of qualifying assets. The assets must be priced below $20,000 and must be put into use or be ready for use within the specified timeframe, starting from July 1, 2023, to June 30, 2024

• write off bad debts before June 30 in order to claim as tax deductions

• pay super before the end of the financial year to ensure it is deductible

• review current business structures.

Navigating impact of AI on family law

As technology advances, family law faces the transformative impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI).

AI’s impact on family lawyers is profound, particularly in document analysis and management. AI algorithms adeptly navigate extensive legal documents, swiftly extracting crucial information and patterns. This accelerates research and bolsters the precision of legal analysis, enabling lawyers to prioritise nuanced, client-centred aspects of their practice.

AI’s impact on legal research is immense. It rapidly navigates through extensive databases and case law archives, providing family lawyers with a deep understanding of precedents for stronger argumentation and strategic planning. AI streamlines administrative tasks through virtual assistants, freeing up time for lawyers to concentrate on case specifics. However, ethical considerations such as transparency and privacy must be carefully addressed by family lawyers to protect client interests.

Despite these challenges, the integration of AI into family law practices presents an exciting frontier. While AI optimises processes and boosts efficiency, the core of family law, empathetic understanding, remains the domain of skilled practitioners. Embracing AI as a tool enables lawyers to prioritise empathetic, client-focused support amid legal complexities, ensuring continued excellence in service delivery.

ARIES (MAR 21 - APR 19)

Dynamic Mars (your patron planet) charges through your sign from Tuesday night until June 9. Your fiery, passionate, proactive, boisterous, bossy Aries side will be on full display. Do your best to get must-do, routine tasks out of the way early in the week.

LEO (JULY 23 - AUG 22)

Prosperity planet Jupiter is jumping through your career zone until May 25–26, which only happens every 12 years. So don’t procrastinate – a lucky opportunity could come out of the blue. You need to strike while the iron is hot.


It’s time to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. This week you’ll be at your creative and playful best as Mercury and Mars activate your leisure-and-pleasure zone. But there is also a tendency to eat and drink too much, or spend too much time sitting on the couch.


1. Espoo is a major city of which country?

2. The Storming of the Bastille was the catalyst for which historical event?

3. At what age did composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart die?

4. Are echidnas considered marsupials or rodents?

5. US president John F. Kennedy was the leader of which political party?

6. Doric, Ionic and Corinthian refer to which type of architectural form?

7. Benedict Spinoza was a practitioner in which intellectual field in the 17th century?


TAURUS (APR 20 - MAY 20)

Jupiter (planet of prosperity) is jumping through your sign until May 25–26. This lucky placement only happens every 12 years, so make the most of it while it’s still around. This week confidence, authenticity and robust self-esteem will take you far.

VIRGO (AUG 23 - SEP 22)

The sun, Venus, Jupiter and Uranus boost confidence and enthusiasm as you pursue aspirations for the future. Avoid being too safe and sensible. It’s time to let go of a perceived failure that has been holding you back.


This week (with Pluto squaring Venus in your fun zone), resist the urge to be overly sombre and super serious. Try to find the sweet spot between being organised and being spontaneous, as you have fun and get a lot done.

9. Who did Australia defeat in the 2023 One Day International Cricket World Cup final?

10. How many colours comprise the flag of South Africa?


Restless, gung-ho Geminis can be too quick to ditch family members, dismiss friends, and disregard colleagues who stuff up or disappoint. But is that always the best thing to do? Perhaps most people deserve a second chance?

LIBRA (SEP 23 - OCT 22)

Libra is the zodiac sign that rules appearance, aesthetics and fashion, cosmetics and personal pampering. This week’s stars urge you to look for the inner beauty in yourself – and other people.


The sun, Venus, Jupiter and Uranus activate your family zone, so home is where the heart is this week. Even though you may be faced with a frustrating domestic problem, be thankful for the relatives who nurture and support you.


Have you been hibernating in your cosy cave? With mighty Mars charging through your career zone (from Tuesday night until June 9) do your best to initiate positive changes at work. It’s time to be bold, rather than brooding, and proactive rather than reactive.


Love planet Venus (visiting your relationship zone) squares your ruler Pluto (in your family zone), so close relationships could be conflicted, especially mid-week. Smart Scorpios will go out of their way to avoid power struggles and controlling behaviour.

PISCES (FEB 19 - MAR 20)

This week’s stars increase your Piscean tendency to blurt things out and spread secrets – so think before you speak. When it comes to a recalcitrant relative or an annoying neighbour, be more diplomatic as you build bridges and let bygones be bygones.

The forum was a prestigious event that brought together educational leaders, policymakers and experts from around the world to discuss and share insights on inclusive education.

The invitation was a significant acknowledgment of the combination of Mrs Owen’s work at Sunshine Coast Grammar School, founding the People, Planet and Progress program and her passion and work on behalf of Grammar, as a member of the Biosphere Community Advisory Group to Sunshine Coast Council.

Mrs Owen expressed excitement and immense gratitude for the opportunity.

“I was honoured to represent the Sunshine Coast region and share what we were doing at a local level with a worldwide audience,” she says.

Mrs Owen shared her experiences, best practices, and successful strategies that contributed to Sunshine Coast Grammar School’s success in delivering the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. Sunshine Coast Grammar School is confident that Mrs Owen made a significant contribution to the discussions at the Global Inclusive Schools’ Forum and brought back valuable insights that would benefit the community, locally and further afield.

Relief may be on its way for graduates struggling to repay their university debts amid the cost-of-living crisis, as new figures show another steep rise in student loan repayments is about to hit.

Changes to how higher education debt is indexed could be on the cards, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has flagged.

The indexation of higher education loans, or HECS, is set to rise between 4.2 and 4.8 per cent from June, projections from the Parliamentary Library commissioned by the Greens revealed.

“The idea of HECS is a good one. It’s one that has led to a massive expansion [in] the number of people being able to do university degrees,” Mr Albanese told radio station Hit Central Queensland.

“But we’re examining the recommendations and we’ll be making announcements pretty soon on that.”

For the more than three million people with HECS debt, the indexation is the second-highest in the past decade, behind a rise of 7.1 per cent in 2023.

The Parliamentary Library figures showed that since 2022, student debt levels had grown by 16 per cent or $12.3 billion. An undergraduate Bachelor’s degree in Australia costs between $20,000 and $45,000 a year, on average. –AAP.

REIQ releases episodes to help consumers become better informed on buying, selling and renting property and answer ‘burning questions’.

As a strong believer that everyone should be able to make educated, informed decisions about buying, selling or renting property in Queensland, the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) is delivering a new, enlightening video series to empower consumers.

The educational video series, called Prop IQ, aims to unpick the complexities of real estate and answer the big questions regularly fielded by real estate professionals.

REIQ CEO Antonia Mercorella says Prop IQ aims to demystify and debunk the process of buying, selling or renting in Queensland and answer consumers’ ‘burning questions’.

“Real estate is essential to all of us. It’s often the topic of conversation at barbecues around the country, and it can be the biggest financial investment people make in their lifetime, and yet, most people have a rudimentary understanding of it,”

Ms Mercorella says.

“For those who want to make informed property decisions and to understand their rights and responsibilities when buying,

selling or renting, the REIQ has created a show designed to enlighten and empower them.

“Prop IQ is an entertaining, accessible and interactive learning experience, allowing viewers to gain valuable insights from industry leaders and be a part of the conversation.

“Each episode hones in on a different aspect of real estate and speaks to the professionals who live and breathe it, allowing us to take a deep dive into their expertise.”

Ms Mercorella says the inaugural

episode, streamed live on the REIQ Facebook page last month, tackled navigating the journey to becoming a homeowner.

“We spoke with a couple who travelled a comprehensive road map to successfully acquire their dream home and learnt some important lessons along the way,” she says.

“Plus, we looked at available grants and schemes, the role of mortgage brokers and real estate agents in the buying journey, and we discussed how apps can be helpful when it comes to finding the right home.

“If you’d like to check out our first home

“Our second episode will cover the rental market, and we welcome everyone to tune in.”

RCQ, a leader in innovative residential projects, has announced some recent significant milestones in the construction of a premium offering that promises to redefine luxury living in Caloundra.

Bianco – where luxury meets the horizon – is set to be a beacon of classic, timeless elegance amid the laid-back vibe of Bulcock Beach.

In a landmark moment for Caloundra, a tower crane has been erected at the Bianco site – a symbol of progress and the first of its kind to grace the southern beachside town’s skyline in almost two decades. This milestone is not just a testament to the development’s progress but also a signal of the region’s growth and its appeal as a premier coastal living destination.

Bianco stands right by the water,

offering unparalleled views of sparkling Pumicestone Passage, and has easy access to Bulcock Beach. The project combines the best elements of modern, coastal design with high-end finishes and amenities, catering to those who seek the ultimate seaside lifestyle without compromising on luxury.

With its strategic location, Bianco offers residents the best of both worlds: serene beachside living, close to a vibrant mix of cafes, restaurants and shops. The project is poised to become the first premium apartment offering in Caloundra, setting a new standard for luxury and design on the Sunshine Coast.

“We’re making great progress,” Bianco project manager Mitchell Evans says.

“The powerlines are down, the padmount transformer has been installed by Energex and the tower crane has now been installed, making on-site logistics and material handling much smoother.

“We have also now completed the basement slab and are moving rapidly through the construction of the basement levels.” Visit



Where: 5 Tay Avenue, Caloundra.

Price: From $1,375,000.

Well, so much for this beautiful sunshine. Last weekend just seemed to rain nonstop.

The forecast, if I am to read correctly, suggests more of the same.

I think the wind might become lighter, which should create some opportunities around Maroochydore, Coolum and Noosa. But, all indications suggest it might be ho-hum.

However, one man’s ho-hum is another surfers amazing day.

So give it a go, who knows!
