Have you ever kissed a cane toad? I have. Just a few weeks ago. I was holidaying in Far North Queensland when I spotted a sign that said: "Cane Toad Races Tonite at 8.30". The action was happening in a dark, back room of a pub in Port Douglas conducted by a bush comedian who had a bucket of six long-legged cane toads eager to jump. The idea was to get the frogs to spring from a table into a bucket and the first in was the winner. For this, the comedian needed 6 'jockeys' to ride the toads. I was picked from the audience. Each frog had a name. Mine was FAT BASTARD and to motivate the toads, each jockey had to reach into the bucket and pluck out his/her frog ... and … give it a kiss for good luck. YUK. As I plunged my reluctant fingers into the ugly knot of toads, the comedian questioned me: "Have you ever kissed a Fat Bastard before?"

I paused and when I said "Yes" with a provocative smile the audience screamed with delight. With hundreds of eyes upon me I puckered my lips, closed my eyes and went in for the kiss. I missed. But the comedian wasn’t about to let me get away with an air kiss. "Oh no," he said as he made more jokes and insisted I do it again. By this time the audience was rolling on the floor with laughter. Anyway, Fat Bastard did not perform. While the spritely slim toads sprang high, my fellow stayed motionless. He came last. Too fat I guess; and no magic in my kiss! Now, back to Mawson Lakes: ABC radio man Peter Goers broadcast one of his shows from the Planetarium in Mawson Lakes last month where he interviewed a few well-known identities. Read a summary of the interview on page 10. While we talk about upcoming fun events this month, there’s some serious work going on in the quiet corridors of the ML campus and this issue reports on award-winning research at UniSA. I've selected a photograph of this research for the cover. Read more about it on page 6.

have your say...

Effect of public outcry Community dissatisfaction about rezoning that threatened the future of the Mawson Lakes Wetlands (reported in MLL/June) has resulted in Salisbury Council changing its plans. A council committee has voted to classify the wetlands in the Shoalhaven housing estate as open space, rather than a proposed residential zone. Kind help I was walking my dogs around the lake when I had an incident with a bicycle and I ended up falling in the lake and hurting myself and I was unable to get out. I called for help and a passing couple assisted me by getting hold of my dogs’ leads, helping me out and using their phone to ring my husband. I was very upset and didn’t get their names so I hope they read MLL and know how grateful I am for their kind assistance when I was in distress. - Bev Nutrition Pyramid Your article on the updated nutrition pyramid (MLL/ July) was an eye-opener and made me rethink my diet. I now eat a rainbow, use spices instead of salt and select a different variety of grains. - Azaria Aspeb Birds of a Feather I am an Australian living in USA and every month I read a copy of MLL. I particularly liked the puzzle on Birds of a Feather in the issue with the pelicans on the cover (MLL/July) because I’m a keen bird watcher. Many of the birds in the puzzle are not seen in Australia but I see them here in the woods in America, for example woodpeckers, cardinals, blue jay, ostrich, roadrunners and red tailed hawks. - Sophie, Philadelphia USA Champion for business The population in SA continues to drop to the point where it is the lowest in Australia. This is concerning news. We need to be more upbeat about promoting successful businesses and selling business opportunities, so I am always encouraged by the positive approach that MLL takes towards businesses in Mawson Lakes. For example, last month it profiled four new business ranging from advanced manufacturing to an IT start-up to a tatoo salon. As you stressed in your editorial, our economy depends on small business success. - Nick Bandes, Economist

Good Neighbours I come from the Barossa Valley and feel very at home in Mawson Lakes because Rosco with Hannah everyone smiles and says hello as we - partner Rhys and dog Rosco - walk past. In our street we have a lovely gentleman who every Monday morning (or more frequently in autumn) sweeps the leaves from all the neighbour’s front porches, tidies up shoes left by the front door, cleans driveways and clears gutters. He is the soul of the street and we like to drop in with a bottle of red every now and again to thank him for his selfless work. Hannah Manuel (22), Egret Street Fox control Foxes are a major pest, threatening the long-term survival of a range of native fauna; as well as little Nigella (MLL/Aug). The pest status of foxes is up for review by the State Government who is seeking public opinion on the best way to control them. Contact Primary Industries and Regions SA (PIRSA). - Harold Belchstein Customer service comparison The other afternoon I ventured into the city to shop at Myers - a glamorous store but with a shortage of staff and hence terrible customer service. The following day I read in the paper that Myers has a new business plan that pins its hopes on a "turnaround strategy" where staff will be "better aligned with modern customer demands". Described as a more "nimble, leaner business model" it heralds store closures, retrenchment of staff and fewer staff employed during quieter times. I couldn’t wait to get back to ML to the owner-operated businesses who know that customers are their lifeblood and act accordingly. An example of this is Mawson’s Gourmet Meats in Light Common who get my award for the best customer service in Adelaide. - Marrilyn Dokerty

Images of Research Scientists often toil behind the scenes and their work is not always understood or appreciated, so an initiative by the University of South Australia called Images of Research was designed to expose the diversity and the beauty of research through photographs. Photo entries from researchers at the Mawson Lakes' Division of Information, Technology, Engineering and the Environment did well in the competition with several being shortlisted. PhD student Saad Al-Sharrah's photograph called Desert Wanderer brought home 2nd prize of $2000. First prize went to Dancing Cell by Dr Genevieve Secker from the Centre for Cancer Biology (see below).

Professor Simon Beecham (Pro Vice Chancellor of UniSA Mawson Lakes) with PhD student Saad Al-Sharrah who’s image of Desert Wanderer was the runner up in the university’s Images of Research Competition.

The competition featured photographs ranging from cancer research to electrical activity in the brain, to the collection of weather data in the Gibber Desert.

This month's issue brings you stories about two photographs depicting research at the ML campus that were entered in the competition. More at

Scientific Research in Mawson Lakes

A photograph depicting his research was shortlisted in Images of Research. It shows a finger with a hydrogel membrane being treated with an ionised gas containing reactive oxygen and nitrogen (plasma) that will speed up the healing process and destroy germs that could infect the wound. "Plasma medicine is a new field that has taken off in the last 20 years but there is still a lot to understand," says Dr Szili. "Our research focus is on tailoring the delivery of plasma to tissue to achieve an optimal dosage of plasma. We have developed a thin hydrogel screen that will filter the plasma and control the dosage for sustainable delivery." The application is designed to treat chronic wounds that are slow to heal, for example diabetic wounds. When aimed at cancer cells, plasma therapy has the potential to target and destroy bad cells and assist the immune system thereby reducing the duration of chemotherapy.

Dr Szili says that scientific research is vital for medical science. "It’s what we don’t know now that will unlock the future of medicine." Contact Dr Szili at:

Sunscreens This month's cover photograph taken by Stuart McClure was a finalist in the Images of Research competiton. Stuart is a passionate scientist who is an expert on electron scanning microscopes for environmental research. His photograph zooms in on tiny particles of zinc oxide that are emitted into the environment from commercial sunscreens when it is washed off the skin in the surf or under the shower. Stuart said he chose the photograph because of its delicate beauty and because it examines a product that is in everyday use. "We cannot know the significance of a substance until we can measure it." "The scientific brain joins the dot in our knowledge by extending what we know, looking at the gaps and coming up with answers," he said. Ed

Healing wounds As our resistance increases towards medical treatments, such as antibiotics, new medical technologies are being developed to assist the body's defence system. One such development is occurring at the University of South Australia in Mawson Lakes where Dr Endre Szili has developed a new way to accelerate the healing of wounds.


New Business -

Lautrec Cafe

In today's busy world, it's good to take some time and enjoy a leisurely afternoon of indulgence. A new cafe opened recently on Hurtle Parade offers a traditional High Tea experience complete with tiered vintage cake stands featuring a delicate balance of sweet and savoury morsels prepared fresh on the premises. The requisite glass of (non alcoholic) bubbles is accompanied by mini home made scones and delicate cakes from a french patisserie. Served alongside quiches, pastries, sandwich triangles, fresh fruit and tea or coffee, the high tea is an experience to be shared and enjoyed. Husband and wife team Peter and Sotira Moraitis recently traded in their city based cafe for a move to Mawson Lakes to be closer to home and escape the competitive pace of the city.

Breakfast, light meals, desserts and


Sotira loves working in the family oriented

and supportive community of Mawson Lakes. "We see all different sorts of groups in here, from the young through to the elderly who meet up for coffee regularly." Four weeks in and they are really enjoying the move. "It's just so different to the city - less pressure. Mawson Lakes has a great atmosphere, no stress. You look forward to coming to work everyday. The people are just so beautiful. They're really really lovely." Lautrec is open for breakfast through dinner 7 days. Late on Fridays and Saturdays and until late afternoon Sundays. They offer a home made selection of light healthy meals, pies, pastries, quiches, frittata, pita, salads and soups. French cakes and scrumptious desserts such as Churro's, waffles, crepes, fondue and sundaes.

'Evenings' with Peter Goers When ABC radioman Peter Goers broadcast his Evenings program from the Planetarium at Mawson Lakes he profiled the suburb by talking to four personalities - Brendan Pihan General Manager of Lend Lease, Kelvin Trimper member of the early development team, Andrew Gunn owner of the Mawson Lakes Hotel and Linda Vining editor of Mawson Lakes Living. Below is a summary of the conversation. Peter said his first impression of Mawson Lakes was of a vigourous suburb with an excellent shopping mall, lots of restaurants and plenty of parking close to the shops. He asked the panel if Mawson Lakes has killed off the Âź acre block? Brendan replied, "Yes. South Australia has the lowest lot sizes in the nation and Mawson Lakes is a leader in quality high density living in a master planned community. There are more apartments in ML than anywhere else in SA." Kelvin Trimper described Mawson Lakes as a "Live, Learn and Work community" not a dormitory suburb such as West Lakes, but a multicultural and mixed-use community with the third largest rail/bus interchange in SA. Peter commented on the good reputation of meals at the Mawson Lakes Hotel, whereby Andrew Gunn advised that 3,500 meals are served every week at the hotel. "We are a 4 star hotel with 59 rooms and many apartments and a staff of 120 people. Accommodation is

the biggest income earner and most of this demand comes from the corporate sector linked to the university and technology park. Our greatest stress is red tape and keeping up with changing legislation. We have 45 poker machines and pay 75c in the dollar in tax on this income." Linda explained why ML is such a well-connected community and how it is becoming a social and cultural hub of the North. "In a world full of violence and fear, we feel safe and concerned for each other in Mawson Lakes." she said. Peter asked the panel many penetrating questions such as: Why are there no churches in ML? What will ML be like in 50 years time? Has ML changed domestic architecture and the way we think of suburbs? Who buys the McMansions in ML? He commented that Mawson Lakes has a 'sense of unreality' and questioned why it it such a popular place to live?

De-facto property case – The other partner with no substantial property. When the 12 year de facto relationship of Mr Fielding and Ms Nichol ended, the question was who was to get what of their property. This was a second relationship for both parties. The property they had was mostly rescued by Ms Nicol from her first relationship and brought into this relationship. The parties had agreed to keep their property separate throughout their relationship. Mr Fielding moved into the house owned by Ms Nichol and seemingly made a financial contribution towards the current value of that house by making improvements to it. Mr Fielding applied to the court for an equal division between them of all the property. She asked the court to dismiss Mr Fielding’s application and to make no orders at all about their property so that each would be left with whatever they held in their own name at the end of the relationship. Before making an order about the division of property of married or de facto couples the court must be satisfied that it is ‘just and equitable’ that any order at all about property be made. In this case the Judge was not persuaded that it was just and equitable to make any order at all. It was a close run thing for Ms Nichol because such decisions turn on the facts of each case and are made at the discretion of the Judge. Ms Nichol could have protected herself from those proceedings in the first place with a Binding Financial Agreement to quarantine from any subsequent claim regarding the assets that she had brought into the relationship.

A new study has found that Australians eat more salt than people in Amercia and the UK and we are not meeting salt reduction targets set by the World Health Organisation. The research from The George Institute for Global Health revealed Australians consume 8.9g of salt a day, way above the amount recommended by the international advisory body of 5g per day. The US consumed 8.8g, New Zealand 8.6 g, Canada 8.5g and UK 8.1g. The National Health and Medical Research Council advises Australian adults that they should consume no more than one teaspoon of salt a day (4g) in order to prevent chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and heart problems. A high level of salt puts pressure on your kidneys, arteries, heart and brain and has been linked to osteoporosis and increased risk of fracture. A whopping 75 percent of the salt in our diets comes from processed foods, restaurants and takeaway foods. Because we cannot see added salt we are often unaware of the amount we are eating. Food high in salt include bread, pizza,

From the dentist Peter Bertossa

Dr Peter Bertossa BDS Dr Peter Bertossa BDS

Traditional dental crowns were like handmade jewellery. The final result was a combination of (usually) a precious metal like gold, with a fusion of feldspathic porcelain baked on in a furnace. To see these made is a beautiful art. The human eye and hand is still responsible for many well-made crowns and bridges.

However, many of us are familiar with the tomb stone appearance of the single poorly done front tooth. Common mistakes with crowns are crowns that are ‘over-contoured’ (too fat in the forward direction), the wrong colour, or with exposed gum lines. In particular the old porcelain fused to metal crowns were made on old shade matching systems and an exposed gum line would look black, ruining the cosmetics of the crown. It is the new world now with scientific colour matching systems and the availability of fully ceramic crowns. That is to say no metallic component. This allows light to travel ‘through’ the crown giving the crown amazing life-like properties. Crowns now seamlessly blend with other teeth. Modern ceramics such as ‘Emax’ and ‘Empress’ are also super strong when bonded.

Caring For Your Feet with Mardi Edwards Heel Pain Pain under the heel is one of the most common adult foot problems we see at Mawson Lakes Podiatry Clinic. The pain can range from mildly annoying to excruciating. Regardless, it limits activities, prevents sufferers from exercising, and even walking any distance. "I get up in the morning and can’t put my foot down. After a few steps it settles but every time I sit down and get up the pain is back again." Does this sound familiar? A common cause for heel pain is Plantar Fasciitis - a term used to describe irritation to the ligament under the arch and heel of the foot. Many people come in after trying creams, pre-made insoles and extensive Dr Google consultation, with little effect. At Mawson Lakes Podiatry Clinic we examine the foot and leg to identify any underlying problems which need to be addressed. We then formulate a treatment plan to tackle the problem which may include taping, stretching, footwear, dry needling, foot mobilisation and foot orthoses. The best part of my job is being able to offer someone in pain alternatives to reduce their discomfort and allow them to return to what they love doing. If you suffer from heel pain or any other foot discomforts, call me on 8262 9999 and make an appointment.

So, what is the best fitness program? To answer this, you need to have a look at your goals, your personality and your motivation for training. Goals - Do you want to be able to run 5kms? To be able to lift 100kg? Maybe you want to be able to piggyback your kids up Mt Lofty? You must find your why. Personality - Are you self motivated? Do you need a push? Maybe you like your training sessions designed for you? These must be considered, if you are not self motivated then a fitness program that has you training by yourself, just wont cut it. Motivation - Do you want to keep up with the kids? Is it fat loss? Or to feel healthy and energised? Remember, It must be fun and excite you. Cheapest isn't always the best. Make sure you look at what is included and stay clear of lock in contracts.

don't settle for less!

The best things in life are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, the path just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but attend to life’s plain common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. - Robert Louis Stevenson Photo of frog: John Nason McGregor

Party for Dogs by Nigella There’s a buzz around the doggie campsite in Mawson Lakes. Our favourite time of year is on the way when there’s a day devoted to dogs. It’s called Dogs Day Out. Doggie bags are being filled with treats, doggie dancing is being rehearsed, doggie clothing is being made for the best dressed in show. MLL is a major sponsor of DDO so we have a stall there too. Quilting ladies have spent months making two gorgeous quilts to raffle at the show. The money raised will go to Pet Rescue. I took one look at all the cute breeds on the quilts and noticed one big omission. I said to Karin Brown, the quilt coordinator: "You’ve missed the cutest and most popular pooches in Mawson Lakes!" So, have a look my doggie friends at the quilts and see if you can work out who’s missing. Are you there? Food is a very important part of a party and there will be lots of treats at DDO. At the moment I’m enjoying a new dog food called Raw4Dogs that has just been introduced to SA. It’s a tasty dish made with human grade Australian meat and seasonal vegetables, fruit and farm eggs including crushed shells for added calcium, things for healthy joints, cod liver oil and all sorts of vitamins and minerals. Dinner time at my place is like going to a different restaurant every night with a selection of chicken, lamb, turkey, beef and kangaroo. Delicious. Get the details on this page and try it for yourself.
