Mr, Ms or Mx In the ever expanding world of gender politics there are some who say the idea of being male or female is too limiting. They don't want their identity defined by name prefixes such as Mr, Mrs, Ms and Miss. In response, a new gender-neutral option is gaining ground. The honorific Mx (pronounced mix) signifies a cultural shift as gender stereotypes are breaking down, and governments and universities are looking for ways to satisfy all pundits in the complicated and contested arena of identity. One example is that Target has decided to stop labelling its toys and bedding as "girls" or "boys." The honorific Mx might be used by one who identifies as bigender (having two genders), agender (having no gender), gender fluid (experiencing gender in different ways at different times) or, perhaps, just because a person does not wish their gender to be a defining part of who they are; something that needs to be staked out for all to see right in front of their name. Mx could also be used when referring to a transgender person whose preferred pronouns (he or she, him or her) aren’t clear.

In parallel, the words "they" or "themself" to refer to a generic person or a person of unknown gender is becoming more commonly used. As an editor, I try to adhere to good grammar, but I don’t want to be a purist who gets left behind as language changes, so I’m going to adopt "they" as a singular pronoun in place of his/her or s/he, even though I know the MLL proofreader will cover the draft with red ink and tell me not to use a plural pronoun to refer to a singular subject. This means that a typical sentence will change from "If your child is thinking about writing an article for MLL, he or she can send it to the editor"; to the new gender-neutral statement; "If your child is thinking about writing an article for MLL, they can send it to the editor." Here’s hoping they will. What a flight of fancy it would be to hop on the back cover of MLL and whizz off to the wonderful places where the magazine lands, as this month's cover illustrates. Also take a look at page 24 where MLL goes from Bali to the Barossa with lots of spots in between. Keep those travel photos coming. We love them. ML residents are great travellers but nothing compares to the story of the long distance traveller on page 8. Take a look.

have your say...

Tobacco ban Hooray, at last I can sit outside in a cafe in Mawson Lakes (or anywhere else) and eat food without cigarette smoke tainting the air. As of July, by law, patrons will not be allowed to light up wherever food is served outdoors, at any time. The ban applies to all smoking products - cigarettes, cigars, shisha, hookah and water pipes. - Gary Drennam Simplify the vote I planned to vote early in the federal election so arrived at the Mawson Lakes school hall at 8.15am only to find a queue stretching the length of the car park. People who were standing shivering in the cold got talking. The consensus was that the public are disengaged in the election process largely because the voting process is complicated and drawn out. Here’s our solution: (1) Simplify the vote - one person one vote and do away with preferential voting. (2) Less talk, more action - dissolve the quarrelsome Senate and get things done. (3) Vote online using iPhone, tablet or computer and reduce the expense of elections. For those who do not have this equipment retain the postal vote. The govt now has three years to get a new system up and running to re-engage the public and restore confidence in the political process. - Harry d' Wheels, Cascades Nuisance calls You’re in a meeting or you just sit down for dinner and the phone rings. It’s someone asking for a donation or selling a product or service and it’s so annoying. To instantly get rid of them say "PLEASE REMOVE ME FROM YOUR DATABASE". This works with Australian telemarketing calls under the Telecommunications Act. Another strategy is to put your name on the free DO NOT CALL REGISTER but

this is of limited value as it does not not apply to all telemarketers e.g. charities and political parties. It does not carry any weight with overseas callers. Nowhere to eat We are 3 men from NSW who arrived at Parafield by light plane to do business in SA. First thing was to find accommodation. Next we needed something to eat. We picked up a copy of Mawson Lakes Living and looked in it for restaurants/cafés. NOTHING. Surely ML has somewhere to eat other than the pub. In the days we were here we did not eat in Mawson Lakes once, instead we went to the city or other places. Can you get some food places in the magazine with times of opening and addresses for people who don’t know the area and don’t have time to look around. - Steve Pauls, NSW Out of stock at Target Target invested a lot of money developing a store in Mawson Lakes, but it's like a ghost town in there, and I think I know why. The shop is so "out of stock" it’s a waste of time going inside. I recently went in to buy a pair of standard pillowcases. Plenty of European pillowcase on show but very limited supply of standard pillowcases. Nothing suitable. I asked about some lampshades "sorry we’re out of stock". So I ventured over to buy some Belle Curve stockings. None left in my size, just a partly ripped packet on the bottom shelf. How about some cosy singlets for my husband. "Sorry, it’s been cold and we’re out of that size". As a parting gesture I thought I’d buy myself a packet of chocolate coated peanuts. You guessed it. All that was left on the racks were packets and packets of hard, horrible chocolate bullets. "No thanks". - Cheryl Verni, Shoalhaven

Voice of the People: GREAT COFFEE On those cold winter mornings it can sometimes be hard to get the energy, motivation and willpower to get up and get going so a lot of people reach for a warm cup of coffee every morning. Mawson Lakes provides for those of us who need a caffeine kick and we all have our favourite place to go and our favourite blend. Jonathon Tonkin (pictured above) approached residents who frequent these places and asked for their two cents on who makes their favourite coffee and why they love it.

New business Bringing Fabric To Life In The Sewing Room Every morning when Hue Le (pictured) opens her shop she puts on her tools of trade - her tape measure and thread snippers around her neck, and a pin cushion on her wrist. "Ever since I can remember I have wanted to have my own sewing shop," said the 29 year old woman whose mother stitched garments to supplement the family income. "I've always loved sewing. When I was a little girl I used to collect offcuts from my mother's work floor and play and stitch away making things. My mother never wanted me to touch her sewing machines because they were too complicated but now my pleasure is to have two of her machines in my shop and use them all the time. Mum is still giving me sewing tips and our love of sewing forges a close bond between us." "Opening my own shop is an exciting and scary venture, but already business is good and people here are very welcoming," said Hue who has worked with Adelaide fashion designers and alteration specialists for many years since graduating from TAFE. "People here are so encouraging that I know I made the right decision to start my business in Mawson Lakes." The alternative location was the city but there

is a lot of competition in town. Parking here is easy and the shops and services are close by. I hope to grow my business and employ skilled staff as time goes by. While alterations and repairs are daily work in The Sewing Room, Hue’s great joy is working with fabrics and colours and designing frocks for special occasions that will flatter her customer's figure. "Good designers bring fabric to life and this comes from understanding the mechanics of fabric and how it will perform," she said. Hue has her own label Willow and Grace and her original designs are on display in her shop window on Metro Parade. Ed

Long Distance Travel Mawson Lakes residents are great travellers crossing the world by plane and boat, but there’s another little part-time resident who flies herself from Adelaide to the Arctic every year, an amazing distance of 12,000 km. This globetrotter is the Grey Plover, a small migratory bird that rests along the Australian coastline in our spring and summer, then heads north to breed in the northern summer in the Arctic. She can fly as much as 7,000km in one flight. To track these birds and discover their migration routes and stop-over sites in order to protect them, scientists have attached solar-powered satellite tracking devices to the birds. Here is what they discovered. One tagged bird who left the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary* set off on her marathon journey in March and flew northwest across Australia’s central deserts. She landed in Kununurra in WA and then headed out over the Timor Sea to Indonesia. After flying over the islands of the Philippines she landed in Taiwan to refuel her engine and rest for a few weeks - a well deserved stop-over after a flight of 7,340 km. By the end of May it was time to leave Asia, so she spread her wings, crossed over China and steered for Russia to catch the northern summer in June. Her destination was a protected sanctuary in Siberia where she built a nest in the dry open tundra and laid 4 eggs. When her chicks

turn two years old they will make the trip south to escape the cold winter in Russia. The females do this every year. The males do not. * The Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary stretches from the Barker Inlet near the Watershed Cafe in Mawson Lakes, for 60 km north to Port Parham. It is expected to become a National Park in 2018. The sanctuary plays a crucial role as a resting and feeding ground for migratory birds who forage on the mudflats and mangroves for small molluscs, worms, crustaceans and insects. If you see a Grey Plover on the shoreline around September to March look at her in awe. Ed

I’m delighted the State Government 2016/17 Budget allocated $1 million for Mawson Lakes School to build a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) laboratory to help students better prepare for the jobs of the future. With our state economy shifting focus to new technology-based advanced manufacturing and three-quarters of the fastest growing occupations technology-related, our children and young people will need a new set of skills in the workplace, with a strong focus on STEM. This investment (part of $250 million statewide) will provide exciting new facilities for students to learn the skills of the future, while also delivering a valuable boost to our economy through the building jobs it will generate here in Mawson Lakes and across the state. The budget also provides $250 million in new low interest loans for non-government schools to upgrade infrastructure and $10.6 million to modernise the delivery of the SACE. The Government is investing $19 million in our defence industries, including $6 million to attract more defence companies to SA, $2.3 million for the Defence Teaming Centre to support local businesses and $1 million for Techport to expand our shipbuilding hub. Students today will learn the skills that will be needed for our Future Submarine, Offshore Patrol Vessels and Future Frigates contracts, while local defence companies will pick up more work enabling them to expand and create more jobs in our community. The budget will also deliver more than $100 million in funding over three years towards public transport projects, in addition to the $152.5 million set aside for the electrification of the Gawler line starting next year.

SCIENCE REPORT: New elements added to the periodic table Four new chemical elements have been added to the Periodic Table, and to scientists this is of greater value than an Olympic gold medal. The new elements are Nihonium (Nh), Moscovium (Mc), Tennessine (Ts), and Oganesson (Og). Okay, so you don't think about the periodic table too often. Maybe you remember it as a bizarrely coloured wall chart you had to memorise at school whose mysteries were briefly unlocked to pass chemistry exams. You do remember that everything is made up of atoms. You know that an atom has some protons and neutrons in the nucleus and some electrons zipping around in orbitals. You easily recognise names like hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, uranium. You may also know that you are made up of billions of billions of atoms. Chemists have learned that about 95% of your body is made up of the following elements - hydrogen (H),

10

Mawson Lakes Living : Issue 110 - August 2016

carbon(C), nitrogen(N), oxygen (O), phosphorus (P) and calcium (Ca). The term 'element' is used to describe atoms with specific characteristics. There are almost 120 known elements. Top of the table is hydrogen (H) with only one atom. Helium comes in next with 2 atoms, uranium has 92 and is the heaviest element to exist naturally, but not all elements exist in nature. Scientists are constantly striving to create new elements. They manufacture them in laboratories by smashing atoms together. The 4 new elements are man-made this way.

The periodic table has 4 new elements


SUDOKU Solution on page 30 The Periodic Table is a near-perfect index to the various properties of the elements, and in this sense is a window into the way the universe works. Elements have different properties and the periodic tables helps predict the type of chemical reactions that are likely. For example, will an element conduct electricity, combine vigorously with water, or combine readily with a non-metal. The discoverers of new elements get to name them. Three countries - Japan, Russia and US have the honour to name the new elements.

TRIUMPHAL Sudoku! Instead of the numbers 1 to 9, use the letters TRIUMPHAL to complete the sudoku puzzle. When done, one row or column will spell the word!

Moscovium is named after Moscow, the Russian capital. Oganesson is named in honour of the 83-year-old Russian researcher Yuri Oganessian. Tennessine is named after the American state of Tennessee where the American researchers work. A group of Japanese researchers came up with the name for the fourth new element, Nihonium. The word "Nihon" means Japan in Japanese. Great names, and so easy to remember if you know where they come from! Ed

Caring For Your Feet with Mardi Edwards

Nail Problems: Toe nail problems are common in people of all ages. The causes of nail problems is varied including incorrect cutting techniques, tight shoes, trauma, infection, warts under nails or health conditions such as psoriasis or anemia. Some common nail issues include the following: Ingrown Toe Nails: Ingrown nails may be the result of several factors including nail shape, incorrect cutting, tight shoes , or inherited factors. They can often be managed with conservative care however sometimes require nail surgery under local anaesthetic. Fungal Nails: These are one of the most troublesome nail conditions to treat. Fungal nails are often thickened, discoloured and the nail can lift. We can trim and thin nails and discuss treatment options. Thickened Nails: Thickening of the nail can be the result of trauma and makes the nail uncomfortable and difficult to cut. We can painlessly thin the nail making them more comfortable and manageable. Trauma: Dropping something on your toe, or repetitive pressure from an ill-fitting shoe can cause nail problems. These can include bruising under the nail, nail loss or even permanent thickening of the nail plate itself. We can treat damaged nails to reduce pressure and pain and thin nails to improve appearance and comfort. If you have problems with your nails or have problems seeing or reaching them to cut, then make an appointment at Mawson Lakes Podiatry Clinic to get advice and treatment that will make your feet more comfortable.

ADVERTISING FEATURE: The Town Cottage by Connekt We spoke with Julie, a Paralowie resident living in a town cottage. What do you love about living in a town cottage? I love that the cottage homes have such character and amazing street appeal with the feature picket fence and buying in a street where all your neighbours have similar homes. Town Cottages are on a compact lot which makes them more affordable, low maintenance and easy living but you are still able to have an outdoor entertaining area and garden. What was your reason for moving to a town cottage? I wanted a classic design that wouldn’t age or date…. cottages have been around for over 100 years, the floor plan is tried and tested and this classic floor plan remains perfect for modern lifestyles with my double fronted cottage having three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a walk in robe and central hallway with a large open plan living/ dining/kitchen area out the back. I was worried about the added prices some builders include over and above the advertised price for traditional package homes, my cottage was turn-key with everything, including the front picket fence. All I had to do was move in. I worry that new modern rendered homes will look dated in a few years, I wanted something more timeless. I also wanted something I knew would be easy to sell in the future for my own investment protection, I had to fight a number of other buyers for my cottage, as they appeal to everyone first home buyers, retirees, investors. It usually doesn’t take very long for a cottage home in my area to be snapped up when it comes on the market (which is rarely). How does the town cottage cater for your family? The cottages are big enough for a couple or small family which is my neighbours but is also a perfect size for me living on my own. Would you live in another town cottage and why? I would love to live in an original row cottage in the inner Adelaide suburbs, but could never afford one and would worry about the maintenance and upkeep of a 100 year old home. My reproduction is the best of both worlds.

If the property is income generating, Investors are entitled to depreciate both the items within their building, called Plant and Equipment, and the cost of the building itself, or Capital Works, against their assessable income.

Meet Malcolm Daws one of our team of lawyers who has special experience with Wills and Estates.

Why do I need to make a Will and what are some of the key points you would make on this subject?

A

A will decides how your assets will be distributed after your death and who will administer your estate after your death. Your assets are frozen until the Probate Court issues a certificate called a Grant of Probate. This certificate confirms that you have left a valid Will and gives your executor authority to deal with your assets. If you don’t have a valid Will your estate is distributed in accordance with South Australian legislation. Home-made Wills and Will kits: Beware! Homemade Wills can be more trouble than no Will. They are designed for you to ‘fill in’ the gaps. They do not cover your individual circumstances. People who use them are usually not aware of succession laws.

Capital Gains Tax: This tax can apply on the disposal of your assets There are ways of legally minimising such taxes. Unnecessary taxes: Your Will may create unnecessary taxes. The way your Will is worded can make the difference between high taxes or tax liability being minimised.

by a Will and come into effect after your death. The trustee (person managing the trust) can be family members such as your spouse or children. It is important that the legal aspects are explained to you. This Estate planning: maximises your family’s inheritance. Be sure to get legal advice.

Superannuation: This money is taxed if paid to non-dependents. Some of your family may pay tax if they receive your Superannuation whereas others may not.

World craze comes to Mawson Lakes

Queen of the Desert Vast and epic landscapes tell the story of a pioneering English woman, Gertrude Bell, (played by Nicole Kidman) who found her way into the deserts of the Middle East in the late 1890s. Gertrude was a woman ahead of her time, a renown writer, political adviser to the British government and an archaeologist. She could ride a camel at top speed through the wilds of the desert, politically charm marauding gangs of traders, slavers and mercenaries and earn their trust and respect. Her unique knowledge of the desert tribes and landscape, her scientific approach and literary skills earned her an Order of the British Empire. She died in 1926 in Iraq unmarried, but she did not lead a loveless life according to this film. In Tehran she met a sophisticated young man who swept her off her feet but the romance was stamped out by her family who would not give their blessing to the match. Her next love was with a married man who brought only heartache (as her love letters reveal). To ease her broken heart she threw herself into her work and earned a reputation as "the female Lawrence of Arabia." This stunning, sumptuous and visually exquisite film is an inspiration based on a true character who changed the course of history.

The latest craze taking over the globe is Pokémon Go, a mobile game that enables users to find and capture tiny virtual creatures called Pokémon (short for Pocket Monsters) through the magic of augmented reality. Based on the popular franchise that began with Nintendo games and trading cards in the 1990s, Pokémon Go has quickly become a cultural phenomenon, rocketing to number one on the download charts on day one and attracting nearly 21 million users in its first week. Using their smart phone’s camera and GPS features, players walk around in the real world, finding and capturing Pokémon. To be a real Pokémon Master you need to collect as many breeds as possible, train them and evolve them. Encouraging you to get outside and moving, the app alerts you when a Pokémon is nearby or you are approaching a Pokéstop or Gym, which are usually found at significant landmarks. The Blooming Bike outside the Mawson Lakes Living office is a Pokéstop where you can collect Pokéballs, which you will need to catch characters. Other assets to acquire include medicine to heal weakened Pokémon and eggs that will incubate while you walk. After you catch a good number of Pokémon, the next step is to train them at a Gym and engage in battles with other Pokémon. This can make your digital creatures grow stronger and evolve to the next level. Mawson Lakes is full of water Pokémon, so get out there and enjoy rediscovering your suburb while you “catch 'em all”. by Nicole Aspinall

Home Loan Help with Joe Vancura Winter is a time when many of us end up at the local friendly Doc for a health certificate and a check-up. Even the healthiest of Aussies take time to invest in an annual health check to nip any problems in the bud before they become bigger concerns. While you’re at it, circle a date on your calendar for an appointment with your broker: your financial health also requires annual maintenance! Your once-healthy home loan may be looking a little under the weather, no longer suiting your financial position, the wider market’s norms or indeed your goals for next financial year. A home loan health check will typically look at your all-important interest rate: does it match the ultra-low mortgage options now on offer? There may be a better mortgage product available for you which reflects the RBA’s latest rate cuts.

In My Garden Winter in the garden is a time of rest before the rejuvenation of spring arrives but Lilly Pillys remain green all year round and add colour with their beautiful glossy ruby red tipped new growth. You will see them in various shapes and sizes scattered all around Mawson Lakes and growing vigorously. Bev and Paul of 12 McKinlay Court love them for their colour variation, dense foliage and versatility. They have many growing in their garden. Two beautifully round ball shaped Lilly Pillys in large pots provide a magnificent entrance. Small conical shaped Lilly Pillys beside them adding interest, while others are used for small hedges. Lilly Pillys are an Australian native and well suited to our soil conditions and weather. They are easy to grow and very hardy and lend themselves to trimming into various shapes. With their thick growth they work well as hedges and have been named ‘Goodbye Neighbours’! In spring they produce fluffy white flowers followed by red berries that are quite acidic and tart to taste but can be used in jams and jellies useful as well as beautiful.

Travelling with Kids by Penny Reidy I often hear people say they put travel plans on hold once they have kids. I have always had the travel bug and was determined that bringing children into the world was not going to mean that I no longer got to explore it. Travelling with kids is no walk in the park, but there are some simple steps you can take to make sure that both you and your kids enjoy the experience.

1. KEEP HAND LUGGAGE TO A MINIMUM We have all seen the cute kids backpacks and wheelie cases and think they would be cute for our toddlers. However the reality is that by mid trip you will end up carrying not only your own luggage, but most likely your toddler and that cute spiderman roller case as well. 2. BOOK CHILD-FRIENDLY HOTELS If you are chasing the sun check the resort has a kids club and a pool. If you as a parent want to relax, a few hours a day of included child care will allow you to schedule adult-only time to balance your holiday. 3. PACE YOURSELF Whilst visiting 20 countries in 20 days can be great when you are single, it just does not work with kids. Pace your holiday, pick five destinations and allow for down time when the kids need it.

Dogs that go to work by Nigella It’s awful being left at home alone - it's so boring and lonely. I often see tradies with their dogs on a work site and think what a great life for a dog to go to work every day in the outdoors. I got a nice surprise a few weeks ago when Mummy and I went into an office, and sitting quietly under a desk was a cute little dog called Chloe on a doggie cushion. She was snoozing when we walked in and when she saw me she lifted her head, wagged her tail and sat up straight. She told me it was "International Take Your Dog To Work Day" and some of the staff had their dogs with them. She said they had a dog-friendly boss so dogs could come to work at anytime. The boss has his own dog at work every day who sits under the table when there are meetings. He gets lots of pats. "The boss has created a dog patch out the back with doggie bowls, toys, clean-up bags, bins and even dogsafe disinfectant. Awful smell. When people break for morning tea and lunch we get to go outside for a stretch and a drink," said Chloe. She told me that dogs in the office are really helpfull when the tension builds up or someone gets upset, or the mood gets a bit heavy, like after a difficult meeting. The boss suggests they all go out for a dog walk in the park. "We just play fetch and romp around and our owners laugh about the lovable and funny things we do and when we all come back to the office things seem happier."

"The boss has a few rules about pet behaviour that we all follow," said Chloe, "or else we get left at home. He's arranged for a mobile dog van to come to the office every 6 weeks so we all get a groom. Oh, that’s a nice day." The office is puppy-proofed by the boss who checks every morning that nothing poisonous (felt pens, food) or dangerous (electricity cords) are in a dog’s reach. Not all dogs are suited to office life but dogs that are sociable and well-behaved are no problem. Chloe said if a dog gets boisterous or is having a bad day the owner is allowed time off to take the dog home, but the number one rule is that no dog is to be left alone in a car. I go to work every day. My mummy works in the Mawson Lakes Living office and I am with her on my cushion under the desk. I get to meet and greet lots of visitors and sometimes we go out to interview interesting people or attend functions. Mummy calls me a member of the PR team.

DOG ATTRACTION: A famous portrait artist was found rubbing raw meat onto one of his paintings of a rather homely woman. "What’s the idea?" asked his friend. "A wealthy woman is coming in this afternoon to see her portrait. I happen to know she never goes out without her poodle. When her dog gets excited about the painting she will probably buy it ... and pay a very good price."
