This week... From the editor I was standing up the back of McDonald Jones Stadium with a few mates, cheering on the Newcastle Jets in the A-League grand final back in May 2018. Even though Melbourne Victory went on to win the decider 1-0, there was a real feeling of optimism after Newcastle finished second in the regular season behind the leadership of popular head coach Ernie Merrick. Fast forward about 18 months, and the Jets announced this week they had parted ways with Merrick as Newcastle languished in last position on the ladder. It’s an unfortunate way to end and I’m sad to see him go, but this is the nature of sport. And, as I’ve already mentioned a few times in this column, there’s always a bigger picture. As Merrick himself said in his postmatch press conference the day before his sacking: “I want to do well with the team for the sake of our fans who have been long-suffering. That’s the pressure I put on myself. But the people who are fighting fires at the moment, they’re under real pressure. We forget we’re playing a game.” As the nation continued to burn over the weekend, Novocastrians rallied at Merewether – and elsewhere – to support our firefighters. Read about how locals, and people across Australia, have been lending a hand on pages 8 and 9. - Ben Murphy

news Program encourages savings habit Back to school time can be an expensive lesson for many parents and children, but a money-saving program has inspired positive conversations. The Saver Plus program, which is funded by ANZ and the Australian Department of Social Services, assists people on lower incomes to develop a savings habit and achieve financial goals. Participants build money management skills and, when they reach their target after at least 10 months, ANZ then matches the amount saved up to $500 for the purchase of an educational item. For Newcastle-based single mum Carly*, the program showed her how to create a budget and helped her buy a much-needed laptop for her nine-year-old daughter Zahra. “It was more about, for me, not wasting money but spending it in places where I didn’t necessarily need to – so buying that coffee instead of making it,” she said. “I’ve been a single mum for most of my daughter’s life, so it was great to get the chance to talk about money in a positive sense.

“We purchased a laptop for Zahra, which was great, and having the program match the money was really empowering – it gives you that solid foundation to show you that you can do it.” The Saver Plus program is delivered in 60 locations across the nation by community organisations such as the Brotherhood of St Laurence, The Smith Family, The Benevolent Society, and Berry Street. The Brotherhood of St Laurence’s National Manager, Dan Crotty, said 84% of parents who undertook the program in Australia taught vital budgeting skills to their children. “They learn how to build a savings habit, how to budget and, more importantly, they’re encouraged to talk to their children about money from a young age – as early as preschool and primary school, right through to the high school years,” he said. “When parents role model good money behaviours and have open conservations about the household budget, we see that participants’ children are better equipped to manage their money as they grow.”

To qualify for the program, participants must be 18 years or older; have a child at school or be attending vocational education themselves; have regular income from paid employment; hold a healthcare or pensioner concession card; and be in receipt of an eligible Commonwealth social security benefit, allowance or payment.

Pedestrian safety a priority The Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation urges children and families to be safe around roads and motorists this holiday period. An annual campaign, titled It’s Holiday Time: Slow Down, Kids Around, serves as a vital reminder to the local and tourist communities about the importance of children’s safety. It comes as the last 12-month period, ending in November 2019, measured a 1.5% increase in the number of people killed on Australian roads. More than 1,100 people lost their lives, including 47 children. The campaign is the brainchild of Michelle and David McLaughlin, who created the Little Blue Dinosaur Foundation after losing their four-year-old son, Tom, to a tragic roadside accident. “The campaign incorporates brightly coloured signage with simple messaging to instruct and remind drivers to slow down, and for 4

children and families to remain alert and attentive,” Mrs McLaughlin said. “The signs are positioned in highly visible public spaces, such as beaches and parks, so that we can best maximise our road safety message. “Holiday destinations are most often a new and unfamiliar environment for children and their families, and it’s important that parents have a conversation with their children and go through how they’re expected to behave when they’re in this new environment. “We lost our precious son, Tom, in the blink of an eye. “We don’t want this to happen to anyone else. “The cost is just too high.” Mrs McLaughlin hopes the campaign will lead to road safety conversations in families. For Mayfield West Demonstration School student Alice Bradley, these conversations are already well and truly being had around the family dinner table and in the classroom.

Mayfield West Demonstration School captains Alice Bradley and Bella Lewis with City of Newcastle Councillor Peta Winney-Baartz.

As part of her school’s PDHPE curriculum, students learn necessary skills, attitudes and behaviours needed to stay safe as pedestrians, passengers and wheelchair users. “Holidays are always the best time of the year, but when they come around, we need to take extra care when crossing roads and watching

for cars,” Ms Bradley said. “These lessons teach us to be extra cautious and careful.” The campaign has been rolled out in 25 government areas, including Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Cessnock and Port Stephens. Go to littlebluedinosaur.org for more. - Elizabeth Symington

news Not-for-profit to open its stables A not-for-profit organisation will open its stables next month in a bid to recruit more volunteers. The Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) provides opportunities for anyone living with disability to enjoy safe and therapeutic horse-related activities across Australia. Its Raymond Terrace and Lower Hunter Centre is set to host an annual Orientation Day on Saturday 1 February. Volunteer Coordination Team member Jenny Gunter hopes the event will recruit several new participants. The organisation has relied heavily on volunteering because each rider they facilitate needs about three people to help, depending on their disability. “The more volunteers we get, the more riders we can have – we have lots of riders on the waiting list,” Ms Gunter says. However, she adds “it’s not all about the horses”; they also need people to help in other areas, including maintenance and fencing. While the RDA welcomes any form of volunteering, Ms Gunter advises that, if people

are working with horses and riders, it is better to commit on a regular basis. “Each program is run by a different coach and it is better to work within the same group because you get to know the riders and team,” she says. Ms Gunter believes the organisation is vital and has great benefits for individuals living with disability. “We have riders living with all sorts of disabilities,” Ms Gunter says. “[Riding] gives them a lot more confidence. “Often they are shy or non-verbal and it gives them an outlet and most of them can relate to the horses in some way. “As far as volunteers are concerned, it’s not only giving back to the community, there is a social aspect as well. “It is a lot of fun- it’s wonderful.” The event will go from 9.30am to 11.30am at 3219 Pacific Highway, Raymond Terrace (seven kilometres north of the Heatherbrae roundabout). Enclosed shoes must be worn to the

news Donations pour in for firefighters Novocastrians heard the call for help after devastating bushfires forced the evacuation of homes, destroyed millions of hectares of land, and led to the loss of lives. Hundreds of residents flocked to Gibbs Oval in Merewether on Sunday to hand over donations and gather vital supplies for the firefighters battling blazes in southern NSW. Three locals – Janette Chapman, Gillian Summers and Sam Worth – put a call out on social media, which received an overwhelming response. The donations collected were enough to fill five seven tonne trucks and a one tonne ute. “The Novocastrians were amazing – we expected to take two cars of donations to Sydney,” Ms Chapman said. She added that the donation drive started “as a couple of friends wanting to help”. “It was very difficult to sit there and not do anything,” she said. “I am so grateful for the people’s generosity.” Two trucks were driven to Shoalhaven, one truck was sent to East Maitland, and the

remaining donations were delivered to Bulga. Co-organiser Mrs Summers and her husband distributed some of the donations to Bulga. She said the response they received from the firefighters was heart-warming. “Before we left, we were ringing around to see where they were most needed,” she said. “They were so overwhelmed, and they said they’d almost run out [of supplies].” “I just can’t begin to imagine the emotions.” Ms Chapman and Mrs Summers praised the generous Newcastle community. “I was just blown away by Newy,” Mrs Summers said. “The incredible heartfelt response – I want to say a huge thank you to the volunteers, particularly those who drove the trucks.” The ongoing bushfires have caused widespread devastation. At the time of writing, more than 1,500 homes have been destroyed, at least 23 people have lost their lives, and it is estimated that half a billion animals have been killed. These numbers are expected to rise as experts count the cost of the

Australian comedian Celeste Barber opened a fundraising campaign on Facebook last Friday and, since then, she has raised more than $40 million, with other celebrities including Pink, Nicole Kidman, Ellen DeGeneres and Keith Urban also chipping in. Organisations across the country, including the Red Cross, NSW Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service (WIRES) and St Vincent de Paul Society, have launched appeals to collect monetary donations. Locally, Maitland MP Jenny Aitchison has opened her office for drop-offs. “Our Rural Fire Brigades are so busy keeping us and our properties safe that they simply cannot spare people to collect much-needed donations,” Ms Aitchison said. Located at 2/12 Elgin Street, Maitland, Ms Aitchison and her team are collecting items for the nearby fire brigades to replenish their supplies. “My office will serve as a collection point and I will deliver the donations to brigades in our community,” she said. Bottles of water, electrolyte drinks and non-perishable foods are among the suggested donations.

The Singleton Bypass is one step closer to construction, with the release of a concept design and review of environmental factors for community viewing. Nationals Member for Upper Hunter Michael Johnsen said the bypass would address current and future traffic demands, easing congestion, and improving journeys for motorists and freight. “We currently have 26,000 vehicles, including more than 3,700 trucks, passing through Singleton every day,” Mr Johnsen said. “The bypass will remove up to 15,000 vehicles a day from the CBD, transforming the centre of this community. “Road users will enjoy increased journey reliability, avoiding up to five sets of lights and reducing their travel time by six minutes, compared to the existing route through town, and much more in peak times.” Feedback on the project will be collected until Sunday 1 March.

Hampers help those in need More than 250 local families have been gifted a helping hand at an often difficult time following Food and Friendship’s annual Christmas hamper deliveries. Food and Friendship, a not-for-profit charitable organisation established by the Warners Bay Baptist Church, offers discounted food for low-income individuals and families within the region. The hampers provide recipients with some financial relief and bring awareness to the community of the struggles some face. Now in its fifth year, Food and Friendship’s hamper drive works hard to identify where to distribute the items so volunteers can deliver them to those who need them most. Hamper recipient Helen Sanderson said what she received had “been a godsend”. “This year we got lots of things like Christmas pudding, tinned food, vegemite and peanut butter, just everyday stuff to help you through the Christmas period,” she said. “I’ve got quite a large family – three daughters, one son and 11 grandkids. “Each year you try to get them presents but

when you’re on a disability pension and you pay rent there is not a lot left over. “These hampers have really helped that.” Ms Sanderson said the organisation made “you feel worthwhile”. “You’re not asking for food; you’re getting it at a discounted price,” she said. “It’s helped me tremendously – the friendship part of it has been the best, you can go to them for help.” The hampers reach a lot of families across the region and, to spread the help further, they donate some of them to other groups to give to families and individuals in need. The success of Food and Friendship’s Christmas hamper drive was thanks to strong community support and partnerships, with Warners Bay Newsagency, Honeybee Preschool, Zenexus and Oasis Health all coming on board to help. Food and Friendship’s Rani Prasad-Ferris said they were incredibly grateful for the ongoing generosity. “Major help this year was the donation of 200 moving boxes by Zenexus, this saved us several

sport Dive into harbour swim

Jets sack head coach Ernie Merrick became the first coaching casualty of the A-League season after Newcastle suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to Melbourne Victory at AAMI Park on Sunday. Merrick, who joined Newcastle in 2017, led the club to an unexpected grand final appearance in his first season. However, the Jets’ have been on a poor run of form, losing four of the past five matches, including a 4-0 mauling by Melbourne City and a 6-2 hammering by Perth Glory. With Newcastle sitting in last place on the ladder, the club’s ownership and senior management announced on Monday they would part ways with the popular coach, effective immediately. Jets Chief Executive Lawrie McKinna thanked Merrick for his efforts during his time in the Hunter. “During Ernie’s tenure, the club

reached its first grand final in more than 10 years and we’re grateful for his contribution during his two-anda-half years in Newcastle,” he said. “However, results and performances haven’t been good enough this season and a change was needed. “On behalf of everyone at the club, I wish Ernie all the best in his future endeavours.” In the round 13 clash against Victory, Newcastle went behind in the 10th minute when attacker Robbie Kruse found space in behind and finished past Jets stopper Glen Moss. It remained 1-0 at the break, but the home side doubled its lead in the 61st minute as Kruse’s effort was parried into the path of Migjen Basha, who placed the ball into the bottom right corner. Just three minutes later, former

Jet Andrew Nabbout controlled a low cross and lashed the ball past a helpless Moss. Newcastle’s Matt Millar then scored an unfortunate own goal in the 86th minute to complete the rout. The Jets face Sydney FC tomorrow (10 January) at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Australia's richest open water swim will return to Newcastle harbour on Sunday 26 January – Australia Day – with a record number of swimmers expected to take part. The 2020 event, which carries prize money of more than $3,500, is being delivered in partnership with the City of Newcastle and Port Waratah Coal Services as the major sponsors. Stockton Surf Life Saving Club President Callan Nickerson said it was crucial to gain their support for the upcoming swim. “It means we can deliver a highquality event and, importantly, raise vital funds for our surf patrols and lifesaving operations at Stockton Beach,” Nickerson said. “The great prize money on offer makes the Newcastle Harbour Swim the richest open water swim in Australia.”

Meanwhile, use a balloon whisk to beat the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until thick and pale, and a ribbon trail forms when the whisk is lifted. Gradually whisk in the cream mixture. Place in a clean saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a flat-edged wooden spoon, for 15 minutes or until the custard coats the back of the spoon – test with your finger. Set the custard aside for 30 minutes to cool slightly.

Meanwhile, to make the raspberry puree, process 500g fresh or frozen raspberries in a food processor until smooth. Strain through a fine sieve into a bowl, gently pushing it through with the back of a spoon. Discard the seeds. Place the raspberry puree, 55g (1/4 cup) extra caster sugar and 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 8-10 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly. Stir raspberry mixture into the custard. Transfer the mixture to a heatproof bowl. Cover the surface of the custard with plastic wrap to prevent a skin forming. Set aside for 30 minutes to cool then place in the fridge for 2 hours to chill. Pour the mixture into the chilled container. Cover with foil and place in the freezer for 6 hours or until firm but still slightly soft in the centre. Use a metal spoon to roughly break up the gelato. Transfer the gelato to a food processor and process until smooth. Place the gelato back in the metal container. Cover with foil and freeze overnight or until firm.

New Year’s resolutions

If you’re not quite nailing your New Year’s resolutions yet, don’t worry. The first step is to accept where you’re at and remember that 1 January is just one day of the year. Reach Out – an online service for young people – offers some tips for getting back on track with your resolutions. 1. Remember why you made the resolution Why this goal? It’s helpful to consider why you made a particular resolution. For example, ‘I want to practise daily meditation because it will help me to cope with stress.’ Thinking about the positive influence a goal can have on our lives reminds us exactly why we set it in the first place.

2. Be realistic If it was easy, we’d all be super-fit, ridiculously productive and cashed up. But if our goals are unrealistic, we probably won’t reach them, which can make us feel bad. Instead of ‘I’ll work out for an hour every day’, try ‘I’ll work out for 30 minutes on Mondays and Wednesdays’. That way, you’ll feel a sense of achievement when you hit it.

3. Frame your resolution positively Often we look at a New Year’s resolution negatively. For example, ‘I’m so unhealthy... I need to eat less junk food’, or ‘I’m so lazy... I need to watch less Netflix.’ Negative self-talk keeps us stuck in the past. Instead, try to look at things in a positive way. For example, ‘I’ll be healthier if I join the gym’, or ‘I’ll have more free time to explore my passions if I spend less time on social media’.

4. Challenge your assumptions We all have heaps of assumptions that may get in the way of our goals. To use the gym example

again, maybe you believe that you’ll never be able to get fit, or that you just don’t have time to exercise. If you become aware of and break down these assumptions, you might realise they’re not true and that they’re holding you back.

5. Prepare for obstacles Change ain’t easy. If you expect and plan for obstacles, you may nip them in the bud. If you think you’ll be likely to skip the gym in favour of a sleep-in, work out what you can do to try and overcome that obstacle. That might mean turning in half an hour earlier at night and wearing your activewear to bed.

6. Team up with a mate Things are better when you don’t feel like you’re on your own. Having a friend to chat with about your goals when your motivation is slipping really helps. They can give you the encouragement you may not be able to give yourself.

7. Create an action plan Break your goal into smaller steps so they’re easier to achieve. For example, if you want to save money this year, your action plan might look like this: Track your spending for a month. Come up with a realistic budget. Work out what you can save per week. Have that amount deducted automatically from your account each pay.

8. Make it fun If you choose exercise you find enjoyable or give yourself a

small reward once you’ve saved a certain amount of money, you’ll be more likely to stick to your goals. Rewarding the steps you’ve taken towards achieving your goals can be really motivating; otherwise, it can feel like a slog. Just make sure you don’t treat yourself too often, or you might find your bank account drained or every day becoming a ‘rest day’.

9. Congratulate yourself When you tick off a step on your action plan and move closer to achieving your goal, remember to congratulate yourself. It’s tough to stick to resolutions, and simply giving it a go and trying your best is something worth celebrating. Go to au.reachout.com for more information and advice.

option. Earthy blues-greys, greens and greiges are emerging as key neutrals that work beautifully with natural materials such as timber and stone – a perfect choice for outdoors. “Contrasts are particularly effective on exteriors. Opt for charcoal or a dark neutral for window trims and fencing and contrast it with crisp white walls. “Or vice versa; select a deep shade for vertical surfaces and play up the contrast with white detailing. “A tonal look is also gaining traction; if you have a contemporary home, consider using different shades of one or two neutrals across walls, fences, the front door and outdoor accessories such as planters.” Or create a wow factor with brights. When choosing an exterior palette, it’s important to factor in your home’s architecture and the colours in your surrounds. For a finish that’s easy to apply and lasts for years, choose a quality paint.

“It’s quick, DIY-friendly and can save you a huge amount on expensive exterior upgrades. “Colour is transformative; use it to give a tired façade an instant facelift, highlight your home’s best features or downplay the less desirable ones.” All you need to get started are the right tools and a couple of free weekends, depending on the size of your façade and how much preparation work is required. “Sprucing up your verandah and façade are generally bigger DIY jobs than re-painting your interior as there are several elements involved, such as walls, decking and window frames, but as your exterior is the first thing visitors see, it’s well worth the effort,” Lucena-Orr adds. Start by choosing a colour scheme. “As a rule of thumb, a palette of either three or four colours works best for exteriors,” she says. “Greys have been on-trend for a while, but they’re far from your only

April an excellent month for spring bulb selection in a cool dry place. Spray deciduous fruit trees with a mix of copper oxychloride and white oil as leaves falls. Poppies are traditionally planted on Anzac Day when beds should have been prepared with poultry manure and an all-purpose plant food at least a week beforehand. Our weekly gardening columnist Judy Sharpe continues her yearly calendar, this time focusing on the months of April, May, and June. April This year Sasanqua camellias will need help to flower – water is necessary as well as applications of sulphate of potash. Great for hedging, they are hardy and ideal for a narrow garden bed along a fence or driveway. This is also an excellent month for spring bulb selection, even though planting isn’t done immediately. Fertilise when planting, then again when they emerge, and most importantly when they are dying off. Lift corms of gladiolus and store

May Herbs past their prime need a light cut back. Fertilise with Flourish and give parsley a boost with blood and bone. Strawberries require a little cultivation by removing old leaves and runners and mulch with cow manure. House plants should be given a last dose of foliant fertiliser, such as Green Flourish until the end of winter. Tulips and hyacinths need two weeks in the fridge crisper to trick them into thinking it’s cold. Give roses a handful of blood and bone to keep them flowering. June Time for the gardener to become a bit lazy, but not before preparing beds for new season roses.

IN THE GARDEN JUDY SHARPE

Dig in compost, but never fertilise where new roses are to be planted. Cold days are great to prepare gardens for deciduous trees which should be in retail outlets next month. Dig in compost and cow manure a couple of weeks before planting. Once Sasanqua camellias fi nish flowering, give them a light prune and fertilise with cow manure. Pot grown plants should be given a slow release such as Bounceback and topped up with peat moss. When Japonica camellias set bed, don’t forget to disbud if too many form on the one stem. Prepare beds for spring annuals, one week before planting with poultry manure. Eliminate bindiis in lawns before seeds become dispersed. Next week: July, August and September to add to your yearly gardening calendar.

Home in on your savings

Take control of your future

Having savings set aside will help cover you in case of an emergency and will also help you reach your bigger money goals. Set up an automatic recurring payment to regularly transfer money into a high-interest savings account that is easy to deposit into but hard to withdraw from.

Knock out your debts

Kick off the new year with a bang by taking control of your future and setting some financial goals. The Federal Government’s Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has offered five top tips to help make 2020 your best year yet. Make a plan for your money What are your money goals for this year? To give yourself the best chance at achieving them, your goals need to be SMART: specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and timely. Setting timely goals means giving yourself a timeframe to achieve

them. A budget will help you to map out your finances and work out where your money is going. Start with the essential costs like rent or mortgage, food, bills and transport, then allocate money for any debts you’re paying off. Anything left over can go towards your other money goals.

If you want to get on top of your debt in 2020, break down what you owe into manageable chunks by prioritising what you can pay first. You could start by making extra repayments on your smallest debt first. Once you have paid that off, move on to the next smallest, and so on. If you start small, by the time you get to your biggest debts you will be well equipped to knock them out.

Take charge of your super Make 2020 the year you get on top of your super. If your super

is spread out across multiple funds, you are paying multiple sets of fees that are reducing your balance. Your super is your nest egg for your future, so why not start the year by consolidating your super into one fund so you pay less fees and grow your lump sum faster.

Invest in your future If your debts are under control and you’ve built up some savings, 2020 could be the year to start investing. Never invest in something you don’t fully understand; take the time to read up on the types of investment options you’re interested in. Follow the golden rules and invest smarter. You might also consider reading money or investing magazines or following finance and investing experts on social media. Go to moneysmart.gov.au/toolsand-resources/news/new-yearsresolutions for more information.

Saturday, PRIME7, 9.15pm, MA15+ (2015)

Melissa McCarthy (pictured) plays a maligned pencil-pusher working for the CIA, who’s often overlooked in favour of the shoot-’em-up agents in the field. But when her partner (Jude Law) goes missing in action, it’s up to her and her undercover alter egos to infiltrate a smuggling ring led by a notorious arms dealer (Rose Byrne). Smart and hilarious in equal measure.

Friday

pick of the week Monday, 7MATE, 8.30pm, M (1992)

Clint Eastwood (pictured) certainly knows his place in the pantheon of cowboy movies. By subverting every rule of his legendary “man with no name” character, he comes up with a tense and thrilling masterpiece. A retired gunslinger (Eastwood) reluctantly takes on one last job, which puts them in the sights of a malevolent smalltown sheriff (a brilliant Gene Hackman).

I, Tonya charts the life and career of infamous figure skater Tonya Harding, which includes, of course, the bizarre attack orchestrated in 1994 by her ex-husband on Harding’s rival Nancy Kerrigan. The film provides a platform that showcases Margot Robbie’s (pictured) prodigious acting talent, and she was duly nominated for an Oscar for her dynamite performance. Far from being just a movie about ice skating, the film explores issues of domestic abuse and mother-daughter relationships. >i<

Liam will be governed by the planet Mars in 2020, which will make him pushy and energetic; the upshot is he needs to be gentle in conveying his ideas and offering his views. He must avoid arguments if he wants to improve his relationships. If he feels changes need to be made, he needs to discuss them with his loved ones. He can work through issues by creating a feeling of togetherness and an inspirational pathway for those closest to him.

ARIES 21 MAR – 20 APR

CANCER 22 JUNE – 22 JULY

LIBRA 24 SEPT – 23 OCT

CAPRICORN 22 DEC – 20 JAN

With Venus entering Pisces from

this year could change your outlook

With the full moon in your sign on 10 January, be careful of what you say and how you act. Not everyone may be tolerant of your temper or arrogance. Unless you want someone special to exit your life permanently, be mindful of your behaviour and think before you speak.

Mars is in your house of short distance journeys until 17 February, energising you so it’s almost impossible for you to sit still for any length of time. If you’re really lucky, this could be due to the fact that you’re rushed off your feet with social occasions to attend.

on life completely.

LEO 23 JULY – 23 AUG

SCORPIO 24 OCT – 22 NOV

Happy Birthday Capricorn! The sun, new moon and Mercury are all energising your financial house, placing the focus on ways to increase your cash and income which will not be too difficult as opportunities will be all around you. However, you must be careful of the urge to splurge unnecessarily.

TAURUS 21 APR – 21 MAY

Venus is in your career house from 14 January to 8 February. It seems as though certain blocks that may have prevented you from moving forward career wise are going to be removed. The planets are suggesting that you have what it takes to solve a tricky financial situation.

With the New Moon, Mercury and Venus in your 4th house, the focus is on your home and family life. There is certainly going to be an element of change which may include renovations, investment or move of property, either for you or close friends or family.

VIRGO 24 AUG – 23 SEPT

SAGITTARIUS 23 NOV – 21 DEC

With Mercury in your house of intimate relationships until 14 January, you will be forced to confront certain emotional issues head on, otherwise, you may be forced into eventually making decisions you will regret. It could be challenging, but the impact you are about to make will delight everyone.

Mars moved into your own sign on 4 January, energising your whole chart. You begin a part of the year where you must be prepared to accept opportunities that come your way. You’re going to have plenty of confidence and your sunny disposition will increase your social activity.

14 January to 8 February, you’ll become aware you can no longer ignore certain harsh realities. 2020 will see you moving on socially to a more innovative group of friends. A surprisingly disruptive element

It will be necessary for you to learn new skills if, for instance, you were to move house at this time, you would have to come to grips with interior decorating or gardening. You may learn to sew, drive a car or bring your work skills up to date.

GEMINI 22 MAY – 21 JUNE Mars moved into your house of relationships on 4 January where it will remain until 17 February, so if anything is going to stir up those hormones, it is this configuration. However, try not to act impulsively; otherwise you may live to regret it.

AQUARIUS 21 JAN – 19 FEB With Mercury and the new moon falling directly in your sign this month, it is time for fresh starts in all areas of your life. Many of you will be moving home, changing jobs or perhaps moving states or countries this year. It’s time to take greater care of your health.

PISCES 20 FEB – 20 MAR With Venus in your own sign on 14 January, you’re going to be looking good and feeling good. It is likely to be either a highly romantic time or a fun sociable one. Even at work you are light-hearted and jovial, which makes the hours positively whizz past.

When Gretchen Carlson slaps Fox News founder Roger Ailes with a lawsuit alleging sexual harassment, not a soul could predict what would happen next. Her decision leads to Fox News correspondent Megyn Kelly coming forward with her own story, as well as multiple other women, inciting a movement that reverberates around the world. Based on the real scandal, Bombshell is a revealing look inside the most powerful and controversial media empire of all time; and the explosive story of the women who brought down the infamous man who created it. Directed by Jay Roach and written by Charles Randolph. An all-star cast includes Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, John Lithgow and Margot Robbie. In cinemas 16 January.

My favourite things ADVENTURES WITH MY WIFE Cheryl, aka Chezzie, is incredible. We got married in 2014. She has had her own health battles but is completely resilient and that vibrance and positivity is inspiring. Whilst we don’t run together a lot, we do train and compete in similar events.

RUNNING I run most days because I just love it, it makes me feel alive and fit. It’s surprising how much of a city you can traverse and see from a different perspective too, especially early in the morning. On the serious side I also love the hard sessions I use to prepare myself for racing.

Vlad Shatrov

EVENT DIRECTOR, COASTAL ASCENT

Competing at an elite level and coaching runners for over 15 years, Vlad combines experience and an in-depth knowledge of running with his passion to help runners strive to achieve something otherwise possibly out of their reach. Based in the Hunter, Vlad continues to be at the forefront of all things running in Australasia and is the coowner and Race Director of the Coastal Ascent. The event, set to take place in February, offers runners the opportunity to enjoy sweeping coastal views, beautiful bushland, flowing fire trails and a challenging single track just kilometres from the heart of Newcastle. In 2019, Vlad was fortunate enough to run in special places like Tasmania, the Blue Mountains, the hinterland of Brisbane, the streets of New York, and capped it off with an incredibly rewarding but challenging run in Cape Town, South Africa. He believes running instils people with self-belief and purpose, providing a whole new lifestyle of being active, rewarded and challenged. 38

TOOLS OF MY TRADE I have so many shoes, but part of my job is testing them, amongst other things. Two of my main sponsors make what are seen as industry-leading devices, so I’m always getting the latest versions to capture special trail running and coaching moments.

WORKING It’s definitely not been easy making the transition to running my own business, which is all about running. I thrive off seeing people have a go and improve, and it’s a joy coaching the sessions that I do every week.

LEARNING Whilst I’m really time poor with my training, racing and work, I’ve always wanted to learn new things. I still crave doing another university degree. All this experience has helped me to do what I do and be viewed as an industry leader. I’ve done a manufacturing management degree, a couple of Tafe courses, and more.
