Time Lords are invited to dust off their Sonic Screwdrivers, pack the TARDIS and bring their favourite travelling companion to Newcastle Museum this Saturday 23 November to join in celebrations to mark 50 years of Doctor Who. Doctor Who was first broadcast on the BBC at 5.15pm on Saturday 23 November, 1963. Since then it has been watched by an estimated ...

urking, lurching, decaying and swaying. Undeterred by the weekend’s heavy rain and howling winds, the creepy corpses of the undead took to the streets of Newcastle on Sunday as part of the third annual ZombieFest. Zombies from far and wide gathered at the Newcastle Museum before marching on Tower Cinemas for a screening of zombie short films. Susan Ford was one of the many zombie aficionados who took part, freaking out the public with her terrifying take on a zombie nun. Having taken part in similar ‘cosplay’ or fancy dress events throughout the state in the past, Ms Ford said she enjoyed adopting a different persona for the day. “I love the anonymity of it,” she said. “Today I’m a zombie nun, tomorrow I could pass you on the street and you would never know it was me. “It’s just a bit of good clean fun.”

Pool power to the people AMELIA PARROTT

ewcastle City Council has caved to community criticism surrounding the management of its pools, announcing on Wednesday afternoon that it was back flipping on its previous stance and electing to

extended the operating hours of the Beresfield and Stockton Swimming Centre to 5pm on weekends during the peak summer period. General manager, Ken Gouldthorp, said Council had listened to pool users and decided to change its position. However, he warned residents that if the new summer operating hours were to continue, pool patronage would have to increase. “Future operating hours will

depend on the response,” he said. “To maintain these extended hours, we will need to see a spike in attendances over the next two and a half month, so I really want to encourage local communities to utilise their local pools.” Stockton resident, Chelle Heath, organised a sit-in protest at the Stockton Swimming Centre that was attended by over 100 locals earlier this month. She believed there was good and

bad in the announcement. “I think it is wonderful that the hours have been extended,” she told the Post. “Unfortunately the reason they shortened them in the first place was because people weren’t using it, and people weren’t using it because it was too expensive. “At the very least they need to reduce the children’s entry price by half otherwise they are just wasting ratepayers money.” Continues on page 3

Time to make bullying punishable by law

M

any of you would have seen or been made aware of the recent 60 Minutes story on the suicide of 15-year-old Chloe Fergusson after three years of sustained bullying. Very few things get me fired up like hearing stories of bullying or seeing it happening. What makes me angrier is that nothing ever seems to happen with regard to punishing those who inflict the torment on others. I finished high school almost 20 years and bullying was rife. Officially, the school did not tolerate bullying and, for all I know, may have even had an anti-bullying policy. However in reality the law of the jungle applied – join in the bullying or be bullied yourself. Looking back now, I shake my head at some of the incidents, both physical and verbal, that occurred. What I can’t comprehend is that bullying is not accepted in the workplace or in general society so why does it go unchecked in a lot of Australian schools? To be fair, in recent years many schools have implemented antibullying policies but still kids suffer

State MP and Lake Macquarie councillors welcome the Post

L

ake Macquarie’s community leaders took time out of their busy schedules last week to join together in welcoming the Post to its new home in Charlestown. State Member for Charlestown, Andrew Cornwell, was joined by local councillors Robert Denton (Liberal) and Barry Johnston (Independent) and the Post’s newly appointed editor, Paul Monforte, at the Post’s brand new office at 19 Pearson Street, Charlestown – ironically, the suburb where the paper was born! Dr Cornwell said he was excited to hear of the Post’s move to his electorate. “I’d like to congratulate everyone at the Post on the move back to Charlestown,” he said. “I believe it is incredibly important that independent media has a voice in the Hunter and it is fantastic to see the paper come back to the local area where it began. “The Post has moved from strength to strength and has always been a valuable way for me to keep up with the grassroots news in my electorate.” Mr Monforte hoped the move to Charlestown would allow staff at the paper to foster stronger working relationships with local

Continues from page 1 Beresfield Swimming Club president, Greg Skinner, believed Council still needed to consult with pool users to come to a solution that worked for all parties moving forward. Wallsend MP, Sonia Hornery, campaigned heavily alongside Ward 4 Labor councilor, Jason Dunn, to ensure Beresfield residents’ access to the inland pool. She put Council’s change of heart down to communities banding together. “It was only through residents of this smaller community rallying (along with Stockton pool-goers) that Newcastle Council has compromised on extending the pool’s operating hours – but of course, this concession has come with conditions and a timeline,” she said in a statement. “But make no mistake, people in the west know they are entitled to the same level of services and attention as all the other suburbs in this city.” Newcastle City Council had previously elected to shorten the operating hours of the Beresfield and Stockton Swimming Centres, to close at 3pm on weekends as part of its 2013/2014 budget. The new weekend operating hours began over the weekend and will remain in place until Australia Day, Sunday, January 26. Operating hours from Monday to Friday remain unchanged.

Let’s show some love to our Mo Bros and Mo Sistas

W

e are exactly two thirds the way through Movember and by now our Mo Bro’s will belong to to one of two camps; the ‘a ferret just took up residence on my top lip’ group A or the ‘no, it’s not a vegemite smear, it really is my mo’ group B. Whichever ‘stache strength’ blokes find themselves in, you can be sure of one thing, it’s the ONLY month of the year novacastrian men give serious thought to their hair, be it facial or otherwise. For us nova gals however, hair is a day to day obsession. A local Yellow Pages rep friend of mine once said to me, ‘Wherever you are in the Hunter you are never more than five minutes drive from a hairdresser!’ It’s red rag to a bull stuff isn’t it, because right now you’re delighting in proving him wrong. You don’t even have to nominate an extreme like Mount Sugarloaf or the Watagans because there are plenty of populated places where your roots will have grown out before you make the trek from your front door to theirs. The point my mate was making, albeit a geographically challenged one, was that we are well and truly spoilt for choice when it comes to who we entrust our tresses to. This is most definitely a good thing because as of next month I am without hairdresser.

Why? Because she is leaving me. Honestly, a less confidant person would have started to question ‘is it me?’. First I lose my on air-partner of 22 years and now the woman whose hands have trimmed, toned and teased my locks for nearly a decade decides to up scissors and leave me for....wait for it....a MAN!!! Yep, packing her bags and heading north to start a new life with her soul mate. Am I pleased for her? Of course - she deserves it .

Good graces aside though, am I a teensy-weensy bit miffed? You betcha bob and balayage I am! (Note to the short back and sides brigade; bob and balayage are hairstyles) A woman and her hairdresser is one of those special relationships forged over time, trust and tints. That intimacy you share when you’re so physically close breaks down barriers prompting stories to be swapped and innermost secrets to be revealed.

Hair is often simply the added bonus to our six-weekly mental health check-ups and I am going to miss our sessions. As I was sipping a coffee overlooking the Beach last Sunday mournfully contemplating my new single status and wondering how one hooks up with a new stylist, a thought struck me: finding the perfect hairdresser is not unlike finding the perfect partner. You want honesty, someone to share a laugh with and the odd awesome head massage wouldn’t go astray. Aside from the massage, my husband ticks all those boxes. I’ve never enquired how skillful he is weilding a hair straightener but one thing’s for sure, he can grow a mo quicker than me (at this stage in life anyway). So, until I meet ‘the one’ I will do like the mo-men are doing this month and grow wild. And if you can spare a few dollars, why not donate to a Mo Bro or Mo Sista to support mens health!

Australia’s Got Talent star added to Special Olympics opening ceremony AMELIA PARROTT

A

former Australia’s Got Talent contestant has been added to the star-studded line-up for the Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics 2013 Asia Pacific Games. Wheelchair aerialist, Paul Nunnari, who delighted viewers under the moniker, ‘The Other Superman’ in series seven of the hit reality talent show earlier this year, will join the likes of Human Nature, Marina Prior, Doug Parkinson, The McClymonts, Silvie Paladino, Darren Percival, Anthony Callea, Iva Davies and Marcia Hines, flying and spinning through Hunter Stadium as part of the two-hour extravaganza. A silver medallist in the marathon at the Sydney 2000 Paralympic Games, Mr Nunnari has been using a wheelchair since age 11 after he was hit by a car. He hoped his performance would challenge the general public’s perception of what it means to have a disability. “I’ve long been a very active advocate for people with a disability and what I do is all about breaking down stereotypes and changing perceptions,” he said. More than 2,000 dancers, singers, acrobats, cheerleaders and artists will perform at the Opening Ceremony of the Special Olympics 2013 Asia Pacific Games on December 1. To purchase tickets to the Opening Ceremony, visit www.soapg2013. com or call ProTicket on 1300 121 012.

Hunter jobs to disappear

Up to 66 redundancies resulting from WesTrac manufacturing restructure AMELIA PARROTT

A

s many as 66 Hunter manufacturing workers could be out of a job by Christmas with heavy machinery manufacturer, WesTrac, announcing sweeping staff redundancies as part of an organisational restructure made public last week. Employees from the company’s Caterpillar machinery facility at Tomago will be made redundant as part of a nationwide workforce reduction of around 630 staff across the company at a cost of $13 million – with around 200 positions to be cut from NSW. This is in addition to 375 positions which were made redundant earlier this year across NSW and the ACT. Australian Manufacturers Workers Union organiser, Daniel Wallace, said they union was particularly concerned that Hunterbased apprentices could be among those laid off. “WesTrac received $9 million in taxpayer money in 2007 to establish apprentice training facilities in Newcastle and Perth,� he said. “As a large company they have a commitment to help train apprentices.� “We will be talking to apprentices to make sure they are not coerced into taking redundancy and that they know their rights if they want to continue with their apprenticeship.� In a statement to the Australian Stock Exchange last Tuesday, WesTrac’s parent

WesTrac’s Caterpillar manufacturing facility at Tomago

company, Seven Group Holdings, helmed by media magnate Kerry Stokes, said the reduction in staff would be achieved through a combination of natural attrition, a reduction in contractors and redundancies. The statement said efforts to improve

efficiency and productivity within the company over the past 12 months had proven insufficient in light of “continuing challenging marketing conditions�. Mr Wallace said redundancies at WesTrac, at train manufacturer, UGL, as

well as those rumoured at One Steel, would have a significant impact on confidence in the manufacturing sector throughout the region and called on local Liberal MPs to be more proactive in insuring the future of manufacturing in the Hunter.

Hunter Valley Gardens Christmas Lights Spectacular gets underway

B

ackyard cricket, a seafood lunch, movies, parties… this year’s Christmas Lights Spectacular at Hunter Valley Gardens is sure to deliver that tingling sensation of the holiday season and more. In its seventh year, Christmas Lights Spectacular has the running title of the largest Christmas lights display in the Southern Hemisphere. With over 1.5 million lights, as well as fireworks on the opening night, the event is a guaranteed way to kick start the festive time of year for the whole family. Kyle McKendry, General Manager of Hunter Valley Gardens says, “This spectacle grows each year and is such an exciting place to take the kids. It is so wonderful to see the awe on a child’s face when they see the lights and meet Santa for the first time. There is so much to explore, such as the Cinderella Castle and New Christmas Marquee as well as all the thrilling sights and sounds. Christmas Lights Spectacular has truly become a hearty family tradition.” This year, eat, drink and be merry with an even greater variety of food and beverage stalls. Up until Christmas, revisit your nostalgic youth to the sound of carols and performers, whilst The Little Scallywagz and fun amusement rides such as the Flying Bugs and the Ferris Wheel entertain the children. Christmas Lights Spectacular will be dazzling every night from Friday 15th November, 2013 until Sunday 26th January, 2014 (excluding Christmas Day and night). Gates will open nightly from 6.30pm, with pre-lights entertainment and food stalls. The lights display will commence at 7.30pm.

Maiden speech gives Conroy the chance to fight for Glendale interchange AMELIA PARROTT

C

harlton MP, Pat Conroy, has used his maiden speech in Canberra to call on the state government to funnel some of the funds from the sale of the Port of Newcastle into the Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange at Glendale. Addressing MPs in the new Federal Parliament, Mr Conroy said the NSW Government needed to commit to funding the next stages of the interchange, including the construction of the Pennant Street Bridge and railway station, adding that the project had the potential to generate thousands of local jobs. “The NSW Government is planning to privatise the Port of Newcastle, potentially raising up to a billion dollars, some of which is earmarks for infrastructure investment in the inner city of Newcastle,” he said. “Without endorsing this privatization, if the port is sold, it is crucial that funds be allocated to finish the Glendale Transport Interchange. “The Interchange is the most important infrastructure for the region and should be funded by the proceeds of the sale.” State Member for Wallsend, Sonia Hornery, backed Mr Conroy’s call for more State support. “The project is short about $18 million to complete Section 2 of Stage 1 and I call on the State Government to take action and get this project on track for completion.”

Federal Member for Charlton, Pat Conroy, wants stronger commitment from the state government on the Lake Macquarie Transport Interchange

Member for Charlestown, Andrew Cornwell, defended the Liberal Government’s commitment to the project, citing that the State had contributed $15 million to the project to date, compared to a $12.5 million contribution from the

Federal Government. He said he fight for any excess funds from the sale of the port to be injected into the project. The Port of Newcastle is expected to be sold by mid-2014 for around $700 million. $340 million from the sale will be put

towards the revitalisation of the CBD, including construction of a new light rail line. Any additional funds generated from the sale will be made available for other projects across the state.

omeowners and builders will soon be able to benefit from hassle free planning on development proposals thanks to a new online system being launched in Newcastle. The NSW Government’s Electronic Housing Code (EHC) allows development proposals, including home extensions, new homes, swimming pools and garages, to be prepared, lodged and tracked online. Newcastle City Council is among 30 Councils that have recently shared in $1 million in funding to help set up the system. State Member for Newcastle, Tim Owen, said the new network brings the NSW

planning system into the twenty-first century. “Local homeowners and builder will benefit from a faster, simpler and more userfriendly system,” he said. “At the click of a button property owners can find out what is possible on their land and get fast-tracked approval for eligible project… without having to wade through hundreds of pages of complex documents.” It is anticipated that 80 councils across the State will have adopted the EHC by June next year.

unter businesses joined forces with V8 Supercar drivers James Courtney and Alex Davison, along with TV celebrities Scott Cam and Lara Welham, to raise $100,000 for Maitland Hospital at McDonald Jones Homes’ Christmas party held at Wests Leagues Club in New Lambton recentlt. “It was a Christmas party with a twist,” McDonald Jones founder Bill McDonald said. “The Hunter and the Maitland region in particular have been such strong supporters of McDonald Jones for more than 25 years, so we’re delighted to be able to give something back. “This region is very active in terms of growth and needs facilities such as Maitland Hospital to be every bit as good as those of any major metropolitan centre.”

Around 450 people attended the event, which involved auctions and raffle items donated by local businesses and McDonald Jones’ suppliers. McDonald Jones employees, contractors and suppliers also ran a mini-expo to showcase the innovations and services associated with the home building industry. Holden Racing Team driver Courtney tweeted after the event, “Off to the airport in Newcastle. Spent the night helping McDonald Jones Homes raise $100,000 for The Maitland Hospital. Top work Bill & team”.

Prestigious awards night

Hunter Medical Research Institute honours outstanding performers

R

espiratory researcher Professor Phil Hansbro won the prestigious 2013 Award for Research Excellence tonight as more than $1.4 million in grant funding was awarded and acknowledged in the Hunter Medical Research Institute’s 2013 Awards Night. Professor Hansbro and his group from the University of Newcastle are developing urgently needed treatments for airway inflammation disorders such as asthma and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Where previously it took six months to evaluate the effects of tobacco smoke – a major cause of COPD – the Hansbro team reduced the period to just eight weeks. This international breakthrough has fostered an ongoing collaboration with Harvard Medical School. It comes as the prevalence of COPD, the fourth leading cause of death worldwide, continues to rise. The economic impact in Australia is estimated to exceed $98 billion, with 3 per cent of the population affected. Professor Hansbro has been working in the Hunter since 1999, making outstanding contributions to medical research at a local, national and international level. He has expanded his team from one to 20 researchers, with 10 PhD and two Honours students currently under his supervision. He joins an impressive honour board for the Hunter Region’s most prestigious medical research award, which is sponsored by Spark Helmore/NBN

Commonwealth Bank grant Muscular Dystrophy Association given $10,000 for Duke of Edinburgh scheme

C

ommonwealth Bank staff have awarded the Muscular Dystrophy Association of NSW a grant of $10,000 as part of its 2013 Community Grants Program. This grant will enable the Muscular Dystrophy Association to fund participants to complete their Silver and Gold awards in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award for young people with MD. This award promotes self-development in young people with muscular dystrophy aged 14–25, giving them an opportunity to achieve and feel a sense of pride. Muscular Dystrophy of NSW works to improve the quality of life for all people living with a neuromuscular condition, through research, information and support, and direct services. More than 200 community organisations that support the health and wellbeing of Australian youth will receive individual grants of up to $10,000, as part of the 2013 Commonwealth Bank Community Grants program. This year a total of $2 million has been invested into local communities. The Commonwealth Bank Staff Community Fund was formed in 1917 and is Australia’s longest running employee contribution program. Current and retired staff contribute to the Fund. All the administrative costs for the Fund are met by the Commonwealth Bank, ensuring 100 per cent of funds raised go directly to youth charities. The Commonwealth Bank matches contributions made by staff dollar for dollar.

Pyroluria: You may have it and not know it at all

T

he genetic condition Pyroluria has been shown to contribute to experiences of anxiety, allergies, fatigue, insomnia, poor dream recall, low stress tolerance, motion sickness, poor immunity, addictive nature or temper outburst? Perhaps you’ve noticed white spots on your fingernails, sensitivity to light and smells, early greying hair, cold hands and feet or joint pain. Pyrroluria occurs when there is a chemical imbalance during haemoglobin synthesis. A Pyrrole is the byproduct of this synthesis, it is a metabolite called hyrodoxyhempyrrolin-2-one (HPL). Pyrroles bind to Zinc, Vitamin B6, Biotin and Omega 6 essential fatty acids. Once bound, these nutrients are excreted into the urine and out of the body. Ultimately, in a person with elevated Pyrrole levels, these nutrients become unavailable, compromising hormone production, immune function, cognitive function and digestion. A simple urine test with an accredited pathology lab will uncover Pyrroluria. Treatment is addressed by improving nutritional status through diet, supplementation, digestion and reducing stress. Most of the research around pyroluria is in mental health, showing up on average in 70% of Schizophrenics, 40% alcoholics, 40% ADHD, 50% Autism, 70% criminal adults 33% violent youths. Oxidative Stress is a marker also and research suggests that 10% of the ‘general’ population have it and are unaware, however I think the number is higher due the little that is known about it in general health. There will be a Pyroluria awareness event organised by Karen Anne Waters of Ki Vitality at Goodness Me Organics, 617621 Glebe Road, Adamstown on November 28. One of the guest speakers will be Alan Malouf, compounding chemist at Visionary Health on Beaumont St, Hamilton. Book at www.trybooking.com/68303

Superannuation: Self-managed funds to boost industry value

Charlestown: Best Western Plus Apollo International

I

W

hether it’s a mid-week stopover or weekend getaway for family and friends, the beginning of wedded life together or conference or special event, Best Western Plus Apollo International Hotel at Charlestown can take care of everything. In terms of accommodation, the rooms are spacious with beautifully appointed modern bathrooms and make the most of the picturesque bushland surrounds and the beds are so wonderfully comfortable you’ll wonder why you don’t have one like it at home. Conveniently situated close to the Charlestown CBD, there is plenty of choice when it comes to dining out, but

t’s estimated that by 2028 the Australian superannuation industry will be valued at close to $7 trillion. A lot of this growth is forecast to come from the Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF) sector, which already has close to one million members across Australia. There are now close to one million Australians that are invested in SelfManaged Super (SMSF) Funds. Members around the country are leveraging from the benefits available through SMSFs. Whilst an SMSF may not be suitable for everyone, many Australians have discovered that investing in direct property within their SMSF can offer substantial savings through tax advantages and access to a larger pool of funds. Through a Self Managed Superannuation Fund (SMSF) you can utilise your existing superannuation (super) balance as a deposit into direct property and as of 2007 you can even borrow through your super. Some of the benefits of purchasing direct property through your super are: Tax Savings – By using your super to purchase an investment property, the property income will only be charged a maximum tax rate of 15% and capital gains tax can be reduced to 0% when you sell the property in pension phase; Deposit – Utilise your existing super balance to fund the deposit for the property; Leverage – You can borrow up to 80% of the value of the property. Newcastle Financial Planning recognises and is embracing the growth in the superannuation and SMSF industry and has recently invested in SMSF specialist, Adam Hoskins. Adam will head up Newcastle Financial Planning’s SMSF division and

the quality of the in-house restaurant – Babbington’s Bar and Grill makes the decision that much easier. Entrees such as elegant asparagus with a polentacrusted soft boiled egg and seared sea scallops as well as an array of top-class mains are sure to satisfy any diner. Best Western Plus Apollo International can also design personalised packages for corporate guests such as the full day delegate package (from $37 per person). Best Western Plus Apollo International is the perfect place to say ‘I do’ with its picturesque bushland backdrop, abundance of rooms for your guests and divine catering in Babbington’s Restaurant. For more information visit www.apollohotelnewcastle.com.au.

Newcastle Financial Planning’s Adam Hoskins

brings with him close to ten years technical accounting experience having worked with a large portfolio of business and SMSF clients. Adam has previously worked at SiDCOR Charted Accountants in Newcastle, MGI in Sydney and Bergkvist & Associates in Newcastle. He has a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Finance and Financial Accounting, is a Chartered Accountant and currently completing his Diploma of Financial Planning.

Debra and the Charlestown Lifeline Shop volunteers have been busily stocking the shop in readiness for the busy festive season.

New heart attack scanning method

here has been a lot of controversy lately about the role of dietary cholesterol in heart disease and more and more research saying sugar has even more to do with it than fat intake. Whatever you believe there’s no doubt heart disease is bad news but a new method of scanning the heart using high resolution images and radioactive tracers could help identify people at highest risk of a heart attack. The test, developed by researchers at the University of Edinburgh, can identify dangerous fatty plaques in the heart’s arteries, which can lead to clots if they rupture. The radioactive tracers seek out active and dangerous plaques, and when combined with high resolution images of the heart and blood vessels, can provide a picture of the main danger areas. “I suspect not all plaques detected will cause a heart attack, but it could be useful for identifying high risk patients who need aggressive therapy,” said cardiologist Dr Marc Dweck. The findings could help doctors in deciding upon treatment for patients, whether it be prescription of drugs, suggesting lifestyle changes or offering medical procedures. The new scan was tested on 40 patients who had recently had a heart attack, and highlighted the plaque which caused heart attacks in 37 of the patients, the study published in the Lancet Medical Journal revealed. It is the first time a scan has identified danger zones, but further research is needed to discover if the detection of dangerous plaques before, rather than after, a heart attack can save lives.

The stresses of our hairstyles

utting our hair in the hands of someone else is something that most of us do about once every month and to do it takes a lot of trust. As much as I trust my hairdresser, there is not a single appointment that I haven’t gone into without feeling slightly nervous – yes, hair grows back but it only takes one slip up to ruin a hairstyle for a good month or so. As someone who has never coloured my hair, I have never had to deal with the stress that comes with a colour appointment, however, I have lived through it with a couple of friends. The most recent case was with a colleague of mine who was preparing herself for a dramatic colour change; from black to red. This young woman has changed her hair colour many times before and will often do it herself, taking the risk into her own hands, but this time decided to get the help of a professional. The first time she came into the office with her brand new hair, it looked fantastic; bright, vibrant and shiny – just what you would expect from a professional. But the perks of the new hair stopped right there and then because after just one wash, the colour that she was assured would be permanent began to fade. The ends of her hair were significantly lighter and after a couple more washes, the ends were almost blond. Not one to complain, my colleague raised the question with me: what should she do? The answer we came up with was simple, your hairdresser is entirely responsible for your hair and if something goes wrong they have to accept responsibility and fix the issue.

The worldwide diabetes epidemic

n the 21st century, diabetes is fast reaching epidemic proportions. New data show that a staggering 360 million people worldwide are living with diabetes In Australia, studies show that nearly one in four Australian adults either has diabetes or what is known as pre diabetes; that is impaired glucose metabolism which is associated with a substantial risk of diabetes and heart disease if left untreated. Diabetes is a condition where the body can’t use glucose properly – usually because of a lack of insulin or so-called insulin resistance when the body fails to respond to its own insulin. Glucose is a particular type of sugar – it’s essential for normal healthy body function; and insulin is the chemical messenger or hormone that controls the uptake of glucose by muscles, liver and fat tissues. Weight management is an essential part of diabetes management. And put simply, the cause of being overweight or obese is too much energy in, and too little energy out. That is too much food, too little exercise. We all need to take a few more steps each day. Whether you have diabetes or just want to know what steps to take to help avoid becoming a statistic in the epidemic, you’ll get great information from the ADC website www.australiandiabetescouncil.com. And you can also get more advice on diabetes from pharmacies around Australia providing the Pharmaceutical Society’s health information. For the nearest location phone 1300 369 772 or go to www.psa.org.au and click on “Self Care” and then “Find a Self Care Pharmacy”.

T

he Actuaries Institute (the Institute) warns Australians need to be financially prepared for many years of retirement. The warning comes in response to the latest headline life expectancy rates released last week by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), which projected ‘life expectancy at birth’ age for men of 79.9 and 84.3 for women. According to the Institute, these ‘reported’ life expectancies focus on reported life expectancies at birth, but those that have already reached age 65 can expect to live longer than the population average and allowing for improvements in longevity will increase this further. The Institute’s own calculations suggest that it is, in fact, more likely that the life expectancy of those aged 65 now will be 86 for men and 89 for women. This means that 65 year old males need to fund on average 21 years of retirement, and 65 year old females will need to fund on average 24 years of retirement. And, as these are average figures, some people will live much longer. In fact, the Actuaries estimate that one in three 65 years olds will live past 90 and one in five will live past 95. “Most people don’t realise how long they might live. Understandably many people base their retirement plans on the

published life expectancies. However in reality, with rapid advances in medicine and the dramatic improvement in life expectancy, it is quite conceivable that in the coming years half of all healthy 65 year olds will live past 100,” said Mr

John Newman, President of the Actuaries Institute. It is important that retirees consider whether their savings will fund these lengthy retirement periods. Those relying purely on ABS averages are likely to run

ith a plot that sounds like it was ripped straight out of one of Michael Bay’s fever dreams - as a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse – in the hands of visual adventurist Guillermo del Torro (‘Pan’s Labyrinth’, ‘Hellboy’) the result is far from a one-dimensional special effects vehicle. Sure, the special effects are here, in spades, but a believable cast including ‘Sons Of Anarchy’s’ Charlie Hunnam and Ron Pearlman and the always compelling Idris Elba (‘Luther’) lifts this well and truly above the pack.

until a vampire named Lestat (Tom Cruise in a career defining role) offers him the chance to become a denizen of the undead. Louis accepts and his blood is replaced with Lestat’s vampiric claret and now Louis must learn the ways of the vampire. Pitt and Cruise are both excellent here and the tension they create onscreen is palpable. A very young Kirsten Dunst also shows her early acting chops as the mini-vamp Claudia.

here are no rules with Tumbleweed, but there are a few things you can rely on. It can get heavy, but it’s got to groove. No tricks, either – Big Muffs and wah pedals only, and everything goes straight onto analogue tape. As it was then, it is now. Long-time producer Paul McKercher was once again in charge of harnessing the band’s famed live intensity, and the results are predictably fierce. After an extensive writing process – the band reconvened in their old rehearsal space, working riffs and sketches (some dating back to 1995) into full, technicolour songsMcKercher spent a whirlwind 12 days with the band in Rancom studios, and another 12 days mixing at The Grove. ‘Sounds From The Other Side’ stands among their best, and if this is the end of the Tumbleweed story, then it’s a hell of a full stop. Though it feels like there a few more chapters to come.

ormer Take That member Robbie Williams proved, with the release of his previous album of swing standards – ‘Swing When You’re Winning’ – that he was much more than a throwaway pop star. Williams has put those formidable pipes to good use, once again, this time offering another sterling selection of swing standards, a couple of new tracks and some very special friends. While the original tracks are nothing to sneeze at - especially the title track with guest Rufus Wainwright – it is when Williams hits revisionist mode that this album shines. Standouts include a brilliant renditions ‘Minnie The Moocher’, ‘If I Only Had a Brain’ and ‘Dream A Little Dream’ featuring Lily Allen. Bruno Mars, Michael Buble and Kelly Clarkson also get a look-in.

hen New York outfit Helmet released their incendiary sophomore album ‘Meantime’ in 1992, they helped usher in a new era of post-metal – the ripples of which can still be felt to this day. Their sound – a ground breaking mix of a kind of Big Black abrasiveness, an attitude shared by many of their New York brethren in the hardcore scene and guitarist Page Hamilton’s signature staccato and jazz-inspired riffing made them impossible to ignore. Now, some 23 years since releasing their debut LP ‘Strap It On’ the band is heading back to Australia but this time they are upping the ante by brining those masters of sludge metal, The Melvins in tow in what promises to be one of the gigs of the year. Frontman Page Hamilton told TE that the prospect of reuniting with their old touring buddies was an enticing one. “Yeah, man we couldn’t be more excited,” he said. “We toured together in a van many many years ago – one van two bands – and we just had an amazing time. Needless to say we are looking forward to our Australian tour with our longtime friends minus the overnight drives, blizzards and floor surfing. The Melvins are just so damn good – I just love what

they’re doing recently as well – that two drummer sound is just awesome.” In preparation for the Australian tour, Hamilton said the band had just recorded new tracks for a split 7” with The Melvins

on the legendary Amphetamine Reptile label and that rehearsals for the tour had taken the band to places they might not have expected. “We just recorded a new song for the

Melvins split which is sounding pretty great and the last time we rehearsed we revisited some things that we haven’t played in years,” he said. “There was some stuff from ‘Betty’, ‘Size Matters’ and even some stuff from [latest album] ‘Seeing Eye Dog’ that we haven’t played much that will probably end up in the set.” While there’s no doubt that Helmet’s brand of “thinking man’s metal” has inspired countless bands the world over, the ever-humble Hamilton said he chooses no to dwell on the band’s place in the popular music pantheon. “I never really think about Helmet in terms of how we’ve influenced anything or anyone,” he said. “I mean, it’s nice to have people think that way about the band but for us, we have always been more concerned with moving forward writing-wise and not repeating ourselves. I mean, I knew Helmet was a good band within six months of us getting together – from then on it has been all about keeping it good. “Also, I think Helmet’s evolution has been very natural and never forced. I guess we were lucky, in a way because we never really belonged to any kind of scene, and the music wasn;t based around any image, either. “We’re also still very passionate about what we do - I mean, I’m a 53-year-old guy and I still practice guitar every day.” Catch Helmet and the Melvins when they play at the Cambridge Hotel on Wednesday, December 11.

eciding to tread the sometimes trepidatious path of a working musician has been a right of passage for burgeoning talent Ashleigh Dallas. The granddaughter of country music icon and Country Music Roll of Renown recipient Rex Dallas, Dallas was just two-and-a-half years old when she had her first music lesson and was playing the fiddle by age six. Her big break came when she was approached by Kasey Chambers, in 2011, to tour and play fiddle in her band. This was the start of a strong musical friendship that has seen Dallas travel the world as part of Chambers’ band as well as opening shows for the songwriter in Australia. Her star continues to soar this year with the release of her debut album ‘Dancing With a Ghost’. Produced by Matt Fell (Josh Pyke, Slim Dusty, Sara Storer) and Kasey Chambers,

ith the X Factor Live tour set to roll into Newcastle this week, the show has been kicked into overdrive with the announcement that top-ten contestant Barry Southgate will be joining the Newcastle and Sydney legs of the tour. Already boasting the formidable talents of 2013 winner Dami Im and the remaining top five contestants Taylor Henderson, Jai Waetford, Third D3gree and Jordan Tolli, the addition of Southgate’s infectious personality and incredibly smooth vocal stylings is sure to make the show even more an attractive prospect. TE caught up with Southgate last week and he said that he was over the moon that he was included in the tour. “I didn’t expect it at all so when I got the call I was like “what the heck? This is awesome,” Southgate said. “First they invited me to the Sydney show and that itself was exciting but then they called me two days later and said that they felt that I would be great for Newcastle as well and I was like “yes!” I’m really pumped.”

“Just to get the chance to hang with the X Factor family as well, you know. I spoke to a couple of them yesterday and everyone is really excited – it’s going to be a huge party. I can’t wait. Southgate, who under the guidance of mentor Danni Minogue rose to the X Factor top-ten, said that the experience he gained on the show was invaluable. “I wasn’t even going to initially auditon for the show,” he said. “At the last minute I decided to audition so I flew to Melbourne and it changed everything. It was hard though because I lost my second mum to cancer during boot camp and that was just impossible to go through – I don’t know how I did it but it really gave me the strength and that extra backbone to push and to make the most of the opportunity. “I feel as though I entered the show a singer and I left as a performer. “Danni was also really good – I know she was hard on me in the beginning but she’s only hard on people that she really believes in and she told me something that really changed my mindset. She said “stop trying to be so perfect. The worst that can happen is that you are going to make a mistake.” Catch the X Factor Live Tour at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Saturday, November 23

HARVEY CONTINUES TO CLIMB

H

ailing from a small country town on the Mid North Coast, it was on the long trips to and from the city that Brooke Harvey first developed a genuine fascination for music. At just three years of age, Harvey began to serenade her parents from the back seat of the car. On high rotation were the songs which became some of her earliest musical influences like Dolly Parton, Emi-Lou Harris, Linda Ronstadt and Patsy Cline. It was at the age of eight that Harvey strummed her very first chord on the guitar and, not long after, began writing songs of her own. Throughout her early teenage years, she went on to perform in various local festivals and cafes in the Newcastle and Hunter Region and her song, ‘Shiny Car’, was selected to feature on the smokestack compilation CD which resulted in her song being play listed on ABC 1233 and 2NUR Radio. Catch Brooke Harvey at Pippis at the Point on Friday, November 22.

here’s only one problem I have with Thai food – it’s very filling. Knowing that I would be venturing overseas to Carrington on the weekend to indulge in cuisine from Paragon Thai I prepared myself by only having a light lunch. Still, I was defeated by deliciousness. My dining partner and I sampled a number of items from the entrée menu – spring rolls, curry puffs, fish cakes, chicken wings, chicken satay and money bags. I enjoyed them all, but if I had to choose a winner it would be the money bags. The minced chicken and vegetables in a pastry pouch is mild enough to satisfy those who are intolerant to spice, while the sweet chilli dipping sauce added the perfect amount of zing for those who require a little more. For mains, we shared a vegetable pad see-ew and a yellow curry with duck. I must confess, I’ve had the pad see-ew before, and I ordered it well aware of how good it would be. What’s fantastic about this noodle dish is that as well as tasting great, it’s easy to eat. The noodles are soft, the vegies are crisp and you don’t find yourself dripping sauce everywhere, which is a definite plus. I’ve never had a Yellow Curry before, so I was concerned that I might burn my tongue off, but that didn’t happen. The curry was creamy and flavoursome, so much so, that if it weren’t rude to do so, I might have drunk some straight from the bowl. This was the point where I knew I had been defeated, but thankfully I had kept my second dessert stomach empty all day. Sticky date and sticky rice puddings ahoy! Both were warm, gooey and sensational. I can’t pick a winner, so I guess you’ll just have to try both.

fter pricking up more than their fair share of ears with their debut EP ‘My Castle’ last year – Melbourne jangly and angular indie-rockers We The People look to have gone one better with their latest short player, ‘The Truth About Fables’. The five track EP bristles with riffs that are hookier than Rex Hunt’s tackle box and lush harmonies that are almost guaranteed to have you singing along with abandon. The band will be hitting our fair city this month and drummer Jonathon Ferraro told TE that, much like their recorded efforts, punters could expect a healthy dose of frivolity when We The People hit the stage. “There is quite a large focus on the fun we’re having onstage in our shows and I’d like to think that our music promotes dancing so we hope that is reflected in our audiences so, come along and jump around like idiots,” he said. Since releasing ‘My Castle’ the band have drawn favourable comparisons to the likes of The Wombats and Two Door Cinema Club, but there is a kind of refreshing earnestness on ‘The Truth About Fables’ that sets the band apart from the norm. Ferraro said that the process for the new EP differed to that of ‘My Castle’ in that the set was put together from songs already on the We The People backburner – a fact which belies the strong sense of continuity on the record.

“Yeah the latest one is really a combination of a lot of songs we already had up our sleeves and we recorded in a few different places as well – this wasn’t something that we planned, just something that kind of evolved and we’re all really happy with the result – we were actually planning to release a series of singles until we realised we haqd a bunch of songs that would work well together.” With the tour taking them pretty much to the end of the year, Ferarro said that, after the Christmas break, the band were planning to head into the studio again. “We’ve already got a couple of songs that we’re keen to record so we’re planning on heading into the studio in the new year, although we’re not sure if it’s going to be singles, an EP or an album – we’ll just have to wait and see.” Catch We The People at the Cambridge Hotel on Thursday, November 28.

fter packing up stumps and relocating Stateside, Aussie-born singer songwriter Jordie Lane is heading home with a cracking new EP under his belt. While his previous releases relied heavily on a stripped back DIY aesthetic, with Lane handling all production duties, this time around, he has unleashed a massive-sounding set that revels in a lush 70s-esque aesthetic that compliments his stock-in-trade lyrical folk sound to a tee. Lane enlisted the services of Nashville based knob-twiddler Skylar Wilson, who has lent his talents to the likes of Justin Townes Earle and rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson and he said there was a sense of relief being able to hand the reins over to someone else for a while. “Yeah, it is very different to the last albums in that we brought Skylar on board as well as a really killer band,” he said. “We basically sat in a studio in Nashville for three days bashing it out and while it was a bit scary at first putting your faith in a complete stranger, it was really nice to be able to sit back, in a way, and let

someone else take a bit of the control. Skylar is an amazing band leader and really in tune with what I wanted to do sonically.” Lane, who now calls Eagle Rock California home said that, at first, the idea of relocating to the other side of the world did seem quite daunting, but judging by the reception he has been getting across North America, he seems to be finding his feet just fine. “It was quite tough in the beginning because it wasn’t just about starting to live in another country and slowing down on the touring,” he said. “The first night I arrived I literally dropped off my belongings and went straight to a show in San Francisco. It’s been quite a hectic time and I haven’t really had time to process it all but it’s definitely been worthwhile.” Catch Jordie Lane at Lizotte’s Lambton on Thursday, November 21

that each performer is in peak shape for the show. Under their intense training schedule and with more than 300 shows a year, it is no wonder individual members are sought out for fashion shoots, modelling opportunities and acting jobs. New recruit Johno is a former US soldier who has recently completed a military tour to Afghanistan. His army-fit tattooed body is a sensational hit with the ladies and kept in shape through the rigorous hours spent rehearsing for the show. Hotshots director, Paul Reynolds, said the key to the success of the group is their attention to detail, the constant evolution of the show and their love of performing. Catch Sydney Hotshots will be performing at Stockton RSL on Friday, November 29. TE is giving you the chance to win a double pass to see Sydney Hotshots in action.

et ready Stockton. One of the best male revue shows in the country is coming to town. Renowned Australia-wide, the men from Sydney Hotshots are hitting the road with their new ‘Funtasia’ show. As seen on the likes of ‘Australia’s Got Talent’ and ‘Sunrise’, Sydney Hotshots brings to the ultimate ladies night with ‘Funtasia’ – a two-hour extravaganza of lights, action and sex appeal in a Las Vegas-esque show performed by some of the primest beefcake on the Australian market. The show is a montage of super-sexy character cameos, including rugged firemen to tame the temperatures, a seductively smooth officer and a gentleman, the quickest, slickest cowboy in the West and when the crowd gets too rowdy, the boys in blue arrive to take matters into their own hands. The show includes acrobatics, break dancing and gymnastics and is also peppered with on-stage audience opportunities, giveaways and freebies. Hours of training goes into ensuring

Watson is a country music maverick - a true outlaw of the genre carrying on where Waylon Jennings left off. A member of the Austin Music Hall of Fame, he stands alongside Waylon, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State. This year has seen Dale Watson release his 21st album,’ El Rancho Azul’ which was recorded at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales Studio in Austin to critical acclaim. This 2nd album on Grammy Award Winning Label Red House Records follows hot on the heels of his classic The Sun Sessions, which was recorded at the fabled Memphis studio and evokes the era of Johnny Cash, Elvis, and Carl Perkins.

support with Watson in his home town of Austin, she took it upon herself to bring the legend to Newcastle. “We played with Dale before – we opened up for him at the Continental Club in Austin which was just amazing,” she said. “I mean, just being able to play at the Continental Club is pretty special in itself but being able to play with Dale just made it an absolutely electric night. “Anyway, I discovered that he was doing an Australian tour and there were no Newcastle dates so I thought that I should rectify that.” No strangers to the road, Virus said she couldn’t imagine a life away from to4urirng. “It really is that troubadour thing,” she said. “If I’m home too long I tend to get itchy feet. Also, the essence of being an artist is taking your art to as many people as possible and as an independent musician I have always loved touring and just seeing the different reactions in different parts of the country and just the wonderful hospitality afforded us – it’s just brfilliant.” Catch Gleny Rae Virus and her Playboys will be performing with Dale Watson and the Lone Stars at the Gallipoli Legion Club on Friday, December 6.

An anarchic triumph STEPHEN BISSET

A

s soon as you enter the opulent bevelled mirror and velour-adorned spiegeltent, pitched conspicuously in Wheeler place, you’ll get the feeling that Spiegelworld’s latest production ‘Empire’ isn’t going to be your ordinary night of theatre. Even as the almost full house was filing in for opening night, the eclectic denizens of the Empire world, in somewhat of a “Brechtian moment”, broke the fourth wall and weaved their way through the crowd offering an entrée to the sumptuous and jawdropping main meal that was to come. The aptly monikered Miss A in A Bubble kicked off proceedings in a sphere suspended from the ceiling and performed a series of impossible acrobatic contortions. The hosts for the evening, the husband and wife team of Oscar and

Fanny threatened to steal the show with a healthy dose of high camp comedy relief. The couple’s raunchy and anarchic act had the audience in stitches and an audience participation segment that left little to the imagination was simply hilarious. Another standout was Black Flinstone and Big Mac Boy – a human juggling act whose death defying feats caused more than a few gasps from the crowd. The final 10 minutes of the show will leave you breathless with an act that was a masterclass in concentration and athleticism. You might think there is not much entertainment to be found in a bunch of sticks and a feather but once you have seen 3D Graffitti Guy, you’ll know just how wrong you were. ‘Empire’ strikes a perfect balance between knee-slapping anarchic humour and jaw-dropping feats of human skill and daring. ‘Empire’ is an absolute triumph. ‘Empire’ is on at Wheeler Place until Sunday, December 8.

hile he has worn many hats throughout his long and eclectic career, Jon English has no hesitation when it comes to picking a favourite creative outlet. “Rock and roll is definitely still my favourite thing to do – it’s completely its own animal,” he told TE. “While I still enjoy theatre, film and television, the feedback you get playing rock and roll is immediate and that feeling you get playing in front of a great rock and roll crowd is just unbeatable.” It would make sense, then, that English would be giving his ‘Rock Show’ concept – a revue-style show that celebrates the classic rock hits of the 60s, 70s and 80s with a stellar cast of Australia’s up-andcomers another go-round with ‘Trilogy of Rock’. English said ‘Trilogy of Rock’ was essentially a “best of” the previous shows, ‘The Rock Show’, ‘The Rock Show More’

and ‘Rock Revolution’. The show runs the gamut of rock classics from the likes of The Who, Janis Joplin, AC/DC, The Kinks , Deep Purple and pretty much anyone else you could name and this time around he will be bringing to Hunter-based musos with him – singer-songwriter Amy Vee and Singleton-bred ‘Voice’ contestant and multi-instrumentalist Nathan Allgood. “Yeah, it’s a very full show and this one will have a bit more of a focus on the blues because a lot of those early sixties bands were highly influenced by the blues. “Also, the band is just fantastic and its great to se the young musos catching on to such great music.” English, who has been treading the boards since fronting the symphonic rock outfit Sebastian Hardie in 1968, said live performance was ingrained in his DNA. “After all these years I’m still having immense fun with it so, why stop now?” Catch ‘Trilogy of Rock’ at Cessnock Performing Arts Centre on Friday, November 22 and Belmont 16s on Saturday, November 23.

Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge: Avid motorsport fan Charley Boorman signs up for the action

T

V adventurer, travel writer and actor, Charley Boorman, has been announced as the second driver on the grid for the Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge and will bring with him a passion and enthusiasm for motorsport. A self-confessed rev-head, Boorman is best known for his role alongside actor and close friend, Ewan McGregor, in their “Long Way Round” series, where they travelled over 32,186 kilometres by motorcycle across 12 countries in just 115 days. As an avid Formula 1 and motorsports fan, Boorman said he was absolutely thrilled to be taking part in the Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge and is hoping his years of riding motorcycles will translate on the track. “I am so excited to be coming to Australia to take part in the Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge,” said Boorman. “I’m absolutely elated to be racing on the same track as the Formula 1 drivers and am of course looking forward to beating all the other celebrities.” The Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge will feature 20 vehicles and will bring together celebrities from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines to compete at Melbourne’s spectacular Albert Park street circuit during the 2014 Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix. Confirmed drivers for the 2014 Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge include Lauren Phillips and Charley Boorman with more celebrities to be announced in the coming weeks. Re-designed from the ground up, the All-New Mazda3 adopts the stylish

Champion back to defend Surfest title in Newcastle AMELIA PARROTT

W

orld champion surfer, Joel Parkinson, has confirmed that he will return to Newcastle next year to defend his 2013 Surfest title, competing for the much coveted Mark Richards trophy in the Burton Toyota Pro event. Currently ranked at number 3 on the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) World Tour, Parkinson revealed the news last Wednesday, saying he was excited to be returning to Newcastle. “Newcastle is such a big surfing city and Surfest captures that vibe really well,” he said. “I’ve been surfing in the contest since I was a kid and it’s always been such a cool event because you’re made to feel so welcome.” Parkinson took out the 2013 men’s event at Merewether Beach in spectacular fashion, defeating Brazilian rider, Alejo Muniz, with a final two-wave score of 15.43. Surfest 2013 women’s champ, Dimity Stoyle will also return to the event in February next year to defend her Hunter Port’s Women’s Classic title. Stoyle said winning the last year’s event helped her qualify for the ASP World Tour, where she is currently ranked number 2 in the ASP Women’s World Rankings, having recently placed second at the Pantin Classic Galicia Pro in Spain.

arners Bay youngster Isobel Cootes is an outstanding eighteen year old footballer (soccer player) who has achieved a huge amount of success already this year. Isobel has been selected as a member of the Australian Schools Football Under 19 team to travel to the United Kingdom in 2014. She played in the NSW All Schools Under 19 Girls Football team which travelled to Canberra to compete in the National Championships and remained undefeated in winning the championship. Isobel represented the Combined High Schools in the Under 19 Age Group at both regional and state levels. On the local scene Isobel played for the Lake Macquarie Team which remained undefeated throughout the playing of the NBN Women’s League. For some years now Isobel has been very prominent on the girls’ Junior Representative Football scene and certainly is a bright prospect for future senior representation.

World champion surfer, Joel Parkinson, will defend his Surfest title in 2014

The 2013 event drew more than 2,000 visitors to Newcastle and generated in excess of $1.2 million in visitor

expenditure across the State. Surfest will run Merewether Beach from February 18 to 23, 2014.

Army training to the fore Coach pinpoints mental toughness key to resurgent Jets PAUL MONFORTE

N

ewcastle Jets coach Gary van Egmond said a pre-season training visit to Sydney’s Holsworthy Army Barracks is starting to pay dividends after two successive victories. “I don’t think the boys will ever do anything as hard as that,” van Egmond said after the 2-1 win over Brisbane Roar at a rain-soaked Hunter Stadium on Sunday afternoon. “It really did test them in a lot of ways. “Full credit to the players. They’ve got a real strong mental resolve and it’s showing. The thing now is to make sure we are consistent. We need to keep our feet on the ground. Emile Heskey entered the match in the 53rd minute and went close to scoring shortly after when heading a cross from Nathan Burns wide of the mark. “With another week of training under his belt, I’d say he’d be getting pretty close to starting,” van Egmond said of the marquee striker. Defender Kew Jaliens was sent off in the 74th minute for dissent and will miss the clash with bottom-placed Melbourne Heart at Hunter Stadium on Sunday at 5pm. The Jets’ W-League team remain without a win after two rounds following a 4-0 loss to Sydney FC in Wollongong on Saturday.
