Looking back on Brighton in the 80s, 90s „„ By Sophie Cornish NEW BRIGHTON in the 80s and 90s will feature in a documentary. Facebook page PierPeoples founder Todd Gibson has called the film A Generation Lost which will look back on a great era in New Brighton’s social history.

Surfers, skateboarders and musicians will be among the people interviewed for the documentary, which Mr Gibson hopes will be finished by the end of summer. The idea came about when talking about New Brighton with friends, joking that they could write a book about all the stories

they have. “Then, one day, I was just sitting around going through Netflix documentaries and thought hang on a minute, I’ve got a camera and I know how to use it. The idea just came to me.” The film will be interviewbased. “There’s so many stories that could come out of it that, in all

honesty, when I think about it, it gets a bit overwhelming,” said Mr Gibson. He hopes the title A Generation Lost will highlight a great era that is now lost in time. The film will be available online and Mr Gibson hopes to have a screening somewhere in New Brighton when it is released. •From the editor, page 2

„„ By Sophie Cornish SOUTH NEW Brighton and Southshore residents will have the opportunity to create an engagement plan for their areas. The plan will then go to Regenerate Christchurch which will then use it to consult the community on issues like the red zone, coastal hazards and climate change. Called the How Team, it will be made up of about eight residents. An application process is under way. Regenerate, the city council and Environment Canterbury will also be represented. About 2000 households from Rodney St south to the end of Rockinghorse Rd are the focus of the study. Said team convener Rachel Puentener: “It is difficult to know how to have a conversation with all of these people about something as complex as the impacts of climate change.” Ms Puentener lives in South New Brighton and works parttime for Renew Brighton and Environment Canterbury. Renew Brighton is a community development organisation and charitable trust which was formed following the earthquakes with the aim of connecting various groups.

I’M LOOKING forward to the doco Todd Gibson is doing on Brighton in the 80s and 90s (see page 1). McCormacks and the Esplanade (Espie) across the road were top of the list. You could cruise the streets from New Brighton to South Brighton and never be short of finding a party, and you’d never be turned away . . . most of the time anyway. There were the burger bars in Seaview Rd and down a bit further on Hardy St that were patronised on a regular basis. A cheese, bacon and pineapple burger and a piece of fish, or a toasted sandwich, depending on how much money you had left in your pocket. Scoop of chips? Not normally – there’d be too many of your mates who would want to eat them for you. Great memories! –Barry Clarke

Students create housing concepts „„ By Sophie Cornish ARA INSTITUTE of Canterbury students are investigating the idea of co-housing villages in New Brighton. The plot of land in question is on the corner of Beresford and Mafeking Sts and is currently a public car park. Co-housing started in Denmark Irene in 1960, with the Boles idea that ‘it takes 100 parents to raise a child’. It is community-based and sees people share tasks, such as childcare, gardening, cleaning, communal dining and food production. The idea is based around living sustainability and gives emphasis to open, shared spaces, including vegetable gardens, bike sharing, tool sheds, children’s areas and gardens. Engineering and architectural studies tutor Irene Boles said the students hope their concepts will inspire the community and suggest possible scenarios for affordable, quality housing. The students investigated different housing solutions starting

In Brief LIBRARY, PIER ACCESS North-side access to the New Brighton Pier and the steps leading to the library has been temporarily restricted due to work on the playground. The restrictions are expected to last for two to three weeks but the pier will still be accessible from the south-side.

from only 45 sq m of space, which can adapt and grow with the needs of a family. The focus is on environmentally-friendly medium density villages and all houses would be elevated to meet flood management requirements. The land is currently owned by Development Christchurch Ltd, a city council entity set up following the earthquakes. DCL is not associated with the students’ project, but is looking at the possibility of

transforming the area into affordable housing in the future. Ms Boles says a development like this would thrive and expand quickly due to the diverse and inclusive community in New Brighton. Suitable materials for coastal conditions were also used it the designs, which age well and don’t require chemical treatments. The project is part of a course called ‘Design for Social Sustainability’ for a Bachelor of

Architectural Studies degree at Ara. Ms Boles got the idea for the project after meeting with members of the New Brighton Sustainable Coastal Village Project. The project was founded in 2013 and has been pushing for the idea on the plot of land since. Ms Boles hopes her students’ research and proposals will inspire more people join the group and help the project go ahead.

AVON RIVER LITTER CAGE A new litter cage with booms on either side has been installed on the Avon River. The previous boom was removed due to earthquake damage. The boom has been placed on Dallington Tce, below the outlet for Dudley Creek. The litter cage has a one-way flap or gate, with large booms either side of the gate. Once the litter is in the cage, it cannot be dislodged. SILVER BAND HALL LEASE The Coastal-Burwood Community Board has approved a new lease to the New Brighton Silver Band Inc for the hall at Rawhiti Domain. The lease is for a period of up to 33 years. The band’s hall is used regularly for full band rehearsals and the individual tuition of youth players. The hall is also used by other Christchurch music groups as a rehearsal space. The band was founded in 1890 and has had a long association with the city’s east.

Veterinary practice

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF VET MICHELE Last month, our super vet nurse Megan wrote about what a nurses day is like at our clinic so I thought I’d give you a little insight into one of my marathon 12 hour Tuesdays, that must start with a flat white! I typically arrive in after 9am due to organizing our teenage lads for school in the morning and walking Lola before our big 12 hour Tuesday. I will then assess, liase with the hospital nurse and devise a plan for any of my sick hospital patients from the previous day. Sometimes I will pass an intensive care patient of mine onto Catherine if my day is full surgically. If there is time before consulting I will phone clients with patient updates or call them in the early afternoon when I’ve finished consulting. Typically I consult seeing patients for 3-4 hours in the morning and then again another 3 hours during the evening. By the time Tuesdays rock around my consulting schedule is almost full so when distressed clients phone with a very sick pet, obviously we will see them but they have to be squeezed into an already full block of consulting. If on arrival they are in urgent need of attention, either I will see them or one of our expert nurses will triage the patient, often take bloods, place a catheter and advise me of their findings. Every patient that rings is seen that day and often we see patients from other clinics because they cant be seen that day at their own Practice. It is common place that during my morning consults I have admitted sick patients for either blood testing, intravenous fluids, xrays or ultrasounds, dentistry, exploratory surgeries, or just observation. I will check on these patients progress, review any blood test results or findings, ring their owners if necessary and work out a treatment plan with the hospital nurse for that day. Once the sickies are dealt with, I turn my attention to the surgical board in which all my surgeries are highlighted in green pen! This past Tuesday was a little insane... Heres my list for that day1. Right Stifle surgery in a sweet 1 year old Golden Retriever called “Bonnie” to repair ruptured ACL ligaments. Bonnie blew her ACL ligaments in both stifles while out exercising with other dogs, so the left is yet to be repaired in 2 weeks depending on how she’s coping after this surgery. 2. A right femoral pinning and wiring in a young cat “Simba” to repair a fractured femur probably caused by a collision with a car. 3. Full shoulder and elbow, spinal, lumbar and hip xrays in Murphy, a 12 year old chocolate Labrador with an annoying persistent right foreleg lameness. 4. A sick, lethargic Chinchilla called Pickles who needed syringe feeding through the day. 5. A Caesarian in a 2 year old Pug called “Geraldine”, who gave birth to 1 live puppy, with 2 unfortunately dying. All in all I have absolutely no time to eat, drink or get into any trouble!! All the above need to be finished with and owners rung by 4pm when I start all over again with consults. Oh I forgot to mention that somewhere in the

day I have a board full of messages to call clients regarding their pets blood or pathology Geraldine and her one little puppy. results, medications requirements, booking in surgeries, queries from other vets or just general advice inquiries. We also look after sick animals for the SPCA and Cats Protection league. We will get a call alerting us to how far away they are and what sort of patient we are seeing, whether a medical or surgical case. That can happen anytime in our day so we fit these consultations around everything else. I feel very good being able to help these less fortunate animals and hopefully give them a chance at recovery and a great life. A day in MY LIFE is a hugely busy, fast paced one where I need to make so many important decisions in a day on the health and well being of the patients in my care. There is no time to second guess yourself, communication between my staff and my clients is key and I need to be very organized and able to prioritise all the patients in my care needing my help. We are so fortunate at McMaster & Heap to have such a highly skilled, clever and practical group of vets and nurses to be able to bounce ideas off when a difficult case needs a plan. Honestly I LOVE my job – actually it’s a priviledge to be able to help animals in the way we can and do. As you can see, every day is extremely different, very challenging at times with difficult medical cases or surgeries but the buck stops with me so to speak. I leave after my 12 hour shift very tired and hungry! But with a big smile on my face knowing that I’ve made a difference in many animals lives that day and so have my fabulous team.

Previously police said they didn’t have sufficient resources to enforce a ban and the problem wasn’t bad enough. But at the LinwoodCentral-Heathcote Com-

They said people drinking and begging outside shops are driving away and intimidating customers. They said the liquor ban would help.

Village may get liquor ban Constable Conal Ross who patrols the Linwood area said the incidents of anti-social behaviour from drinking and smoking synthetic drugs are becoming more “frequent.” From business owners, workers and shoppers feeling unsafe and no longer shopping at all – Constable Ross said the behaviour is taking its toll and with police only able to issue tickets to those using drugs, its not enough. A local shop owner, who did not want to be named, said a ban would stop profits diving. It has been a long standing issue for three or four years. “It’s also just the hanging outside . . . we’ve had customers ringing up and say we love your shop but we’re not coming in anymore,” he said. Drinking is “definitely” putting shoppers off, according to supermarket owner Choy Ming Lee. “We call the police but they say they can’t do anything,” he said. A liquor ban will give police the power to finally do something, Mr Lee said. City councillor Deon Swiggs said this had been an issue on his radar since he was first elected more than a year ago. “We’ve been trying to deal with

Cr Swiggs said the synthetics are the main issue but stopping people drinking on the street is a start. “We don’t want to put more pressure on police resources, but they’re [police] are there every day . . . we’ve got to try.”

A police spokeswoman said there has been anti-social behaviour in the area for a long time. “Police believe alcohol is one of a number of factors at play. A liquor ban has been suggested as one way of reducing alcoholrelated harm in the area,” she said. As the matter is now with the city council, she said it would

victions will only make it harder for them to get jobs. It’s just moving the problem elsewhere, not solving anything. “We all make mistakes. We all want a job. But its the background . . . there are a lot of reasons that turn guys to the bottle or the can to cope,” he said. Mr Hauwai said most of the beggars, don’t want to be there either. “It’s a pride thing. It’s degrading.” The pair are working with the city council to set up a drop-in centre for the area. Mr Wallace said it would give streeties an opportunity to have access to education, work skills and even simple things like fixing their bicycles. “That’ll get rid of us. It’ll give us somewhere to go,” Mr Wallace said. “We don’t need a liquor ban. What we need is a second chance and a lot of hope.” But Mr Wallace and Mr Hauwai said they do understand where the shops are coming from. “But why arrest a person because they are drinking. I understand if he’s fighting or hitting someone but not just drinking,” Mr Wallace said. The liquor ban will go before the city council at a meeting in the coming months.

Marshland pupils take $1500 prize for scooter invention PUPILS AT Marshland School have been rewarded with $1500 for their scooter shelter engineering concept. The engineering team of 14 pupils, including teachers Dave Sutherland and Bex Osborn, were second equal in the junior section of the 2017 Transpower Neighbourhood Engineers Awards. They will be presented with a cheque of $1500 which will go towards new STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) equipment for the school to build up their resources in this area. Mr Sutherland said it was the first time the school had entered the nationwide competition and year 5-8 pupils who had shown an interest and ability in engineering were chosen. “We try to look for authentic learning experiences for our pupils, so some real life problemsolving is ideal,” said Mr Sutherland. Pupils worked with an engineer who was assigned by the awards programme to identify a problem in the community and work to find a resolution. The pupils noted that during school time, their scooters were left out uncovered by the elements and proposed the idea of a

Disc golf course ready to launch in Queenspark „„ By Sophie Cornish A NINE-HOLE disc golf course will be trialled at Queenspark Reserve and parts of it may be open before Christmas. Parklands Residents’ Association chairman David Baines is pleased to have the support from the Coastal-Burwood Community Board, which approved the course at its meeting last week, pending advice from the city council parks unit. “Now the real work begins, it’s been a long time to get to this stage,” said Mr Baines.

The residents’ association is now working with the Christchurch Disc Golf Association to establish the course, beginning with ordering the equipment. It hopes to have at least part of the course open by Christmas. “It will really be dependent on the timing of the supply of the equipment, because they have to manufacturer the baskets,” said Mr Baines. A promotional event will take place at Christmas in the Park on December 10. A temporary basket will be available for people to practice

on and find out more information about where the new course will be. There is currently one other course in Christchurch at Jellie Park. It is unsure when the Parklands course may get a permanent status. “There is a little bit of uncertainty even within the council ranks about how they grant permission, whether it’s a decision they vote on or whether there is a license granted to use the park for a particular purpose,” said Mr Baines.

scooter shelter. Designs were created, and then models were tested with the help of engineer Saxon Gordon against elements such as wind, snow and earthquakes. The resources were then bought and a volunteer builder constructed the shelter. Mr Sutherland said the school will participate in the awards next year. “It was really beneficial for the kids. When you can actually find something that is real life problem-solving and experience and the kids get to see it all the way through to the end, it’s really valuable,” he said.

Haeata students learn about healthy relationships „„ By Sophie Cornish HAEATA Community Campus is the latest school to roll out the ‘Loves-Me-Not’ programme to students. The programme, which is a part of the Sophie Elliott Foundation, is designed to discuss and teach the importance of healthy relationships. Sophie Elliott was murdered

by her former boyfriend and university tutor, Clayton Weatherston, in 2008. The foundation aims to lower the levels of domestic violence through education. In 2013, the foundation partnered with police and the Ministry of Social Development to develop Loves-Me-Not, a oneday workshop targeted at year 12 students.

Discover this unique Emporium

School community officer Matt Swaney believes the course is effective for youths at this age. “They have a level of maturity in terms of they can take the information that’s been given and process it in a way that makes sense. As well as the fact that people at that age are getting into relationships or will be soon, so that information is relevant to them.”

WE SERVICE WHAT WE SELL

The programme explores qualities of good relationships, how to recognise early signs of abuse, understanding sexual consent, critical thinking about who is advantaged by societal myths, how to be an active bystander and how to take action for change. The workshop is delivered by three facilitators who are trained by the police, including one

teacher and one social worker per class. It begins with a 10min video introduced by Nigel Latta, a well-known clinical psychologist. Loves-Me-Not started in 2013 with nine secondary schools across New Zealand. Each year since then, it has increased so that, by 2017, 100 schools across the country have registered, nine of them in Canterbury.

Health Demands 'Inglewood' Sold! 100 Threlkelds Road, Ohoka

5 Bedrooms | 1 Study | 2 Bathrooms | 2 Living | 1 Dining | 2 Car Garage | Off Street Parking | Property ID: PLS2326 Lovingly built in 1867, the soul of "Inglewood" has endured over time and with the glorious grounds, modern enhancements throughout, additional dwelling, outbuildings and facilities this property is unequivocally a one of a kind. Due to health reasons our reluctant owners must now sell. Featured in numerous home publications, and with the Queen Mother herself having visited twice, this property is a tremendous piece of country heritage. Entertainers will adore the ample living spaces, high ceilings and native timbers throughout, as well as the updated kitchen with Rayburn, the generous bedrooms and plentiful storage. A second dwelling (with four bedrooms, two bathrooms) and separate studio provide additional income/business opportunities, or independent living space for extended family, whilst the historic stable block and eight paddock facilities are perfect for equestrian lovers. The swimming pool, spa pool, tennis court, snooker room and beautifully established grounds create a magic wonderland of beauty and recreation... all situated on 4.6323ha of prime Ohoka land.

Stephan Lance Gardiner – Seeing as this is for the future of our city, people over a certain age should not have a say. As most elderly people are not open to change weather better or worse. Bruce Burns – I am firmly against the Rawhiti Domain land swap, it will be the thin end of the wedge. Les Money – Definitely against it. Natural green landscapes will bring more people to enjoy New Brighton than cheap housing. My suggestion would be to put that housing in Fendalton Park. Linda Street – I am completely opposed to the proposed land swap between Rawhiti Domain and Bexley red

Fire rage s, homes

quite safe, drivers are responsible for themselves. Live and let live.

Readers respond to an article about the Rawhiti and Avondale golf course land swap for housing which has been proposed by Regenerate Christchurch Tanya Didham – The worst thing to me about this is not losing a golf course (couldn’t give a monkey’s about that, we have loads), it is putting the ‘replacement’ on the regenerating Bexley salt marsh. Critical habitat that has nowhere else to go. Whatever way you slice this one, it’s a dud.

zone. Of all the red zoned land, it seems obvious that Bexley should be allowed to naturalise and return to wetland. Liquefaction has repeatedly occurred and, after rain, there is major ponding in this area. Bexley is currently accessible to anyone, but a golf course would limit and interfere with this public access. The major detrimental ecological impact of a golf course being located alongside the river is just plain wrong. Christchurch east has suffered enough loss of assets such as schools, bowling and croquet clubs, shops and churches, so why would anyone think it is a good idea to lose a golf course by swapping two golf courses for one? There is already ample space left vacant for housing after the closure of so many of our local schools such as Central New Brighton, Freeville, Wainoni, Aranui and Burwood to name a few.

GUARDIANS: Ruthie Emeny and Cathy Baker from the Guardians of Rawhiti are firmly against the land swap proposal.

The Guardians of Rawhiti are absolutely right to fear that this would be the beginning of the end for the fantastic community asset that Rawhiti Domain is. You only have to look at what has happened to QE II; the park environment has been decimated and continues to be carved up with the most recent development a massive gym building consented to be located right in the middle of two sports fields. Leave Bexley to revert to its natural state. Readers respond to an article about rabbits living on the Anzac Drive, New Brighton and Travis Rds roundabouts and whether they should be culled or caught and released

Gill Williams – For the last 11 years, I have driven past pukekos, canadian geese, ducks and once a loose bull in the New Brighton Rd and Travis Rd area. There has never been any mention of these animals being a problem in the tabloids, or anywhere else to my knowledge. The rabbits have been on the roundabouts for several months now, with no mention of them being regarded as unwelcome or harmful and needing to be dealt with. Therefore, I think the rabbits should be caught and released so they enjoy their lives with no risk to them or anyone else. Donna Hancock – Why do they have to interfere at all? Bunnies are happy and probably

Rosie Carney – I am emailing you as I feel very passionate about the survival of these beautiful rabbits on Anzac Drive, New Brighton and Travis Rds. They have obviously evolved since the earthquakes, and them being black in colour, I would think they were originally domestic animals that have bred. I think if they are culled there will be an outcry from the general public. I live near the roundabouts and don’t see them everyday, they are under the bushes most of the time. I think they should be caught together as a group and relocated together to another site. Who are we to cull animals if is is the easiest option, makes one glad we are human and not an animal.  Claire Coveney – The black rabbits do not need to be culled, they are not hurting anyone. They could be humanely sterilised. The biggest pest on this planet is the two-legged human, who is responsible for destruction of habitat and pollution. Such hypocrisy about pests in NZ. The road should never have gone through Travis Wetland as wildlife is killed by the next biggest pest, motor vehicles.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY... HOW TO BARBECUE PERFECT RIBEYE STEAK

AVOCADO AND CARAMELISED PINEAPPLE SALAD

Ingredients

Ingredients

Ribeye steaks, at least an 1.5 inches thick Olive oil Salt Fresh ground black pepper

2 Tbsp Brown sugar ½ Pineapple, peeled 2 Tbsp Butter 3 Avocados, firm but ripe ½ Red onion 100g Blue cheese, creamy ½ Red chilli 2 cups Salad leaves, washed

Directions Preheat your grill to high heat. If you have a sear burner and a steak that is more than an inch thick, get one side of the grill going at about medium-high in case you need to cook it through a little more after the sear. Remove the ribeye steaks from their packaging and rub them down with some olive oil and then coat a generous amount of salt and freshly ground black pepper. The olive oil provides just enough fat to help the salt and pepper create a great, caramelised crust. Clean and lubricate your grill grates with some cooking oil on a rolled up piece of paper towel (using tongs, of course). Place the ribeye steaks on the hottest part of the grill and then stand ready with the tongs.

Dressing 1 Orange, zest and juice 1 Chilli, finely chopped 1 tsp Ground cumin 4 Tbsp Avocado oil 1 to taste Salt & freshly ground pepper At this point, you are on flareup watch. The fat dripping off of the steaks could create a flare-up. If a flare-up occurs and doesn’t go away in a few seconds, simply use your tongs to slide the steaks away from the open flame until the flame dies down and then move them back over the heat. Continue to grill with the lid open for about 4-6min. Flip the steaks over onto the

other side, still over the hottest part of the grill. Grill the ribeye steaks for an additional 4-6min on the other side, lid open, for a medium-rare delicious steak. Remove the steaks from the grill and allow to rest for 5min before serving. The resting period is important so that the juices don’t run out when you cut into the ribeye, so be patient.

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Hip pain: Do I have arthritis or could it be mainly my muscles?

T

he team at Physical Sense in Sydenham sees clients with a range of symptoms but many of their middle-aged and senior clients visit complaining of pain in one or both hips. Physiotherapist Ietje van Stolk suggests that a major part of the pain could be due to muscle pain rather than simply arthritis. “Even if an x-ray shows arthritis, the reason for the pain may be the muscles around the joint,” she explains. Alternatively, a back muscle could also be the cause, as shown in the image. Ietje recalls one case where an 89 year old client with severe arthritis who walked with a stick, told her, “I will end up in a wheelchair, I cannot put any weight through my right leg due to pain in my hip and buttock”. “Within 4 treatments, she was walking with her stick but without the severe pain,” says Ietje. “The arthritis was one of the factors that made her muscles spasm but the other was that older people move less and the flexed position the hip is in when we sit is particularly bad for the hip.” Ietje is happy with the fact that although the client was 89 and could have been “given up on” or told to live with the pain, she made a difference to

Hip muscle that causes hip pain

(the crosses are the areas of the muscle spasms, the red areas is where the pain is felt)

her health and wellbeing. At Physical Sense, hands-on techniques (massage and triggerpoint deactivation techniques) are used to release the muscles. The client also gets a home exercise program designed to mobilize and stretch the hip, strengthen the important core muscles and increase general strength and balance. They

teach a movement sequence that stretches the hip in all directions whilst the client is able to lie safely on their bed, perfect for older or less mobile clients. In many cases having the muscles released and being taught how to maintain it, is enough to stay on top of the problem. If severe arthritis is the underlying cause, some

maintenance therapy may be necessary, but that is often more affordable and, for older patients, better tolerated than surgery. In very few treatments the client will know if it is going to work for them or not, without financial commitment.

Physical Sense Gym and Physio is located at 300 Colombo Street, Sydenham. The Blue Line Bus stops in front of the door and there is ample parking. To enquire about specialised exercise classes or physiotherapy treatment, phone 377-2577 or visit www.triggerpoints.co.nz

USE THE RED CROSS ADVANTAGE - COMPREHENSIVE FIRST AID, ESSENTIAL FIRST AID, REVALIDATION OR TAILORED TRAINING TO SUIT yOU AT yOUR PLACE OR OURS.

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider.

Experience comfort! Experience technology!!! Dr Keith Chiang and his team at Fendalton Dental Surgery are excited to offer the very latest in dental imaging technology. They have taken delivery of several sophisticated dental equipment over the recent months. All designed to enhance patient diagnosis, improve their comfort and safety during dental procedures by upgrading to the latest available. Keith believes in constantly updating himself with recent advances by attending several courses in NZ and overseas. “Each course teaches me something new and makes me revisit Dentistry with a renewed passion”.

Keith with the CBCT

The newest arrival is the Cone Beam Computed Tomograph (CBCT), which provides a 3D image of the patient’s jaws and teeth through the latest digital imaging technology. As Keith explains, the current digital X-rays shows only a 2D image. The image is crisper but it sometimes leaves a few questions unanswered. Now with the complete 3D technology, he is able to have a much better understanding of problems in the patient’s mouth. “It’s a huge game changer and takes diagnostic imaging to a totally different level. It’s like having Superman’s extra pair of eyes to help with the diagnosis,” he says. “And it saves time as patients do not have to be referred elsewhere for the scans as we have the CBCT machine in our practice and the scan costs cheaper comparatively too”. The Surgery has also acquired a stateof-the-art patient sedation monitoring system, Capnograph, which is used for patients under IV sedation. Surgical or Dental treatment under IV sedation is an area of special interest for Keith, who is a dental surgeon, and he has carried out more than 1800 IV procedures since 2008. “Patient safety is our utmost priority when they are under sedation. Our Capnograph monitors their vital signs namely the respiratory gaseous exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide levels, heart rate and Non-invasive intermittent blood pressure throughout the procedure. This not only

HealtHy Heat & eat meals delivered to your door

The Fendalton Dental team benefits the patient, but also gives the dentist a sense of reassurance.” Associate dentist, Dr Zohnia McNeill has a keen focus in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, restoring the smile for people of all ages and from all walks of life. She shares the same passion for dentistry and is happy to put a smile back on the patients face. Oral Health Therapist, Amy Lee is dedicated to looking after the Oral hygiene of the patients. Her role involves treating gum diseases, educate people about care of

their teeth and gums to help prevent oral diseases and maintain good oral health as well as overall general health. The Fendalton Dental Surgery provides General dental services with a focus on Surgical and Restorative Dentistry. The team warmly welcomes you to enjoy the friendly environment and the experience the new technology they provide. The Surgery is located on the high-profile corner of Idris and Glandovey roads. For an appointment please call them on 03 351 1188.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT

Only 40 days till Christmas NEW RELEASES Oxygen

by William Trubridge The incredible under-water world of William Trubridge. A memoir of an aquatic affinity, the power of the subconscious mind and testing the limits of human physiology. In a sport where failure usually means blacking out, it is a freediver’s daily life to contend with suffocation, narcosis, hallucinations, lactic acidosis, compressed lungs, and immense water-column pressure - all while diving into depths of ink black ocean. Exquisitely written, Oxygen is a mind-altering and immersive coming-of-age story about a boy who grew up on a sailing boat, with the sea his classroom and playground. It is about fighting the trappings of life on land, and pushing the limits of human physiology, to become the world’s greatest freediver.

In Finding My Virginity: Or the rest of the story, Sir Richard Branson shares the secrets that have seen his family business grow from a student magazine into a global brand, his dreams of private citizens flying to space develop from a childhood fantasy to the brink of reality, and his focus shift from battling bigger rivals to changing business for good. Following on from where bestselling Finding My Virginity: Or the rest of the story left off at the dawn of the new millennium, Finding My Virginity: Or the rest of the story takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride with the enigmatic entrepreneur. This is the true account of how the Virgin Founder reinvented himself and his brand for the 21st Century, while continuing to push boundaries, break rules and reach for the stars in more ways than one.

Where the Past Begins By Amy Tan

In Where the Past Begins, bestselling author of The Joy Luck Club and The Valley of Amazement Amy Tan is at her most intimate in revealing the truths and inspirations that underlie her extraordinary fiction. By delving into vivid memories of her traumatic childhood, confessions of self-doubt in her journals, and heartbreaking letters to and from her mother, she gives evidence to all that made it both unlikely and inevitable that she would become a writer. Through spontaneous storytelling, she shows how a fluid fictional state of mind unleashed near-forgotten memories that became the emotional nucleus of her novels. Supplied with candor and characteristic humor, Where the Past Begins takes readers into the idiosyncratic workings of her writer’s mind, a journey that explores memory, imagination, and truth, with fiction serving as both her divining rod and link to meaning.
