shooting script, and that’s because we just don’t objectify men in the easy way that we do women. It’s certainly not seen as “manly” to be depicted in this way, yet the women who enjoy and support female surfing are expected to see their heroes sign up for this kind of depiction. All without once showing the audience what such a sportswoman can actually do – which is catch mighty waves. Women’s surfing is struggling for sponsorship and is losing events because it can’t secure financial support. When I see promos like this I wonder at the sense of this soft-core focus when the women’s competition should be presented as the magnificently brave sport it is. But most annoying of all is that I and many others automatically run the risk of being depicted as overly serious, overreacting sensitive souls, when really we’re just having to make the same old boring arguments about the same old objectification of women yet again. Our girls admire surfers like Gilmore, and they are constantly being reassured that they should be not defined by their looks – and then they see this. It’s dispiriting. It’s maddening. It’s just so old-fashioned. And not even a sweet old surfer guy with bad knees and bifocals can make that funny. \

JULY 24, 2013 \ The weekly review 3


ustralians look at Clive Palmer in all sorts of ways – billionaire miner, benevolent soccer fan, antagonist of politicians, media darling (especially on Lateline), big dreamer and builder of Titanic 2. Most see him as larger than life, including his five-year-old daughter, Mary. “She says I’m funny,” Palmer says. “She reads the cartoons they make about me and she always recognises me.” Why? “Probably because of my fat tummy. She says, ‘That’s dad’s tummy!’ and she comes and pats my tummy and says, ‘Look, dad, there you are’.”

At 59, Palmer is an older father to Mary, his third child (he has two grown-up children from his first marriage). Does he read Mary stories? “I do. It’s a bit tedious. I read her a story and she says, ‘Can I have another one, dad?’ And then I read her another one and she says, ‘Can I have another one?’” I meet Clive Palmer at a Melbourne hotel after a media conference about his Palmer Australia Party, which he launched in April, initially as the United Australia Party). I have managed to obtain some face time with the man who is very much in a hurry – jetting around the country trying to convince Australians that he should be their next prime minister. He’s a big man with undeniably big ideas, and he thinks he’s ready for leadership. “The gross domestic product – that’s how politicians measure life,” he says. “The GDP includes the cost of all of our crimes, our police forces, our armies, the cost of accident insurance policies – all the negative things. It doesn’t record the sunshine, the smile on a child’s face and the quality of life that people enjoy. And politicians really should be there to provide a better lifestyle for the people they serve and represent, to make sure the assets they’ve got

in sacred trust for the community are optimised and spent better. “I’m here to give my life experience and the skills that I’ve got for the benefit of the community.” Palmer is proud that he’s lived various different lives including stints in the desert in the late 1980s exploring for iron ore for his company, Mineralogy. “We went out exploring for iron ore and we had six to nine months every year,” he says. “I was in the desert, 45 degrees in Western Australia, drilling, looking for iron ore, and we discovered the world’s largest iron ore deposit and I became a billionaire, but that didn’t change the person I was.” Has wealth changed him? “Well it means I’ve got the power to convene the media wherever I go in the world, right? Which gives you a chance to do some good.” Palmer spent his early years in Williamstown and I ask what he wanted to be when he was a child growing up? “I wanted to be well,” he says. “I had asthma. I used to go to hospital all the time, St Vincent’s Hospital among others. I wanted to get out and see the sunshine. “When I was eight years old going to the clinic my heart stopped beating and I stopped breathing. I think that was a big change in my life because it made me realise you’ve got to live for today and for tomorrow. And what people think of you – positive or negative – isn’t something that should stop you doing what you think is the right thing to do.” How did that illness shape him as a person? “I think it’s made me more harsh in some of my judgment. It’s made me not want to waste time.” Harsh in judgment? “You’ve heard people say that it cost me nothing but my time. Well, there’s nothing more that it can cost you, that’s the most valuable commodity that a human being’s got, certainly more valuable than money, or a concept of money. That’s all [money] is, a concept. And I think we’ve got to realise that the role of money is only of benefit if it is spent to help people.”

“when you lose someone you love, that love doesn’t die. It influences my life every day.” – clive palmer

His family moved to Queensland in 1963 when he was nine and Palmer was raised on the Gold Coast. “We were sort of middle class I suppose,” he says. He barracked for the Bulldogs growing up. “I used to play some junior Aussie Rules. I think AFL’s a great sport. You know what’s good about it? It’s Australian, something that we can be proud of. As we leap high into the air we can tell the world, ‘Look at us, we can do better’. He also spend time out and about in Gippsland. “My uncle lived outside Bairnsdale. I used to go to the Sale fishing competition every year, camp on the beach, catch gummy sharks. I used to go fishing for eels in the Gippsland Lakes, and catch tortoises. My uncle was a cutter of sleepers for the railway, we’d cut tall timbers together and make sleepers. I was nine or 10.” How does he look back on his business successes? “I don’t look back, I look forward,” he says. “I say anything you’ve done yesterday is yesterday. Anything you do tomorrow is tomorrow. At my age in life you don’t want to take the future from your children. Our

flavour. People don’t really understand that. So why shouldn’t Australians do things internationally for our country? Why should we have to go and live in America? Basically I’m an Australian and I love my country and I’m prepared to offer myself and whatever skills and ability I’ve got for people who haven’t got those skills and ability. I’ve got a track record.” In 2005, Palmer’s first wife, Susan, died of cancer. They were married for 22 years. “It brings you in contact with reality,” he says of the loss. “It makes me think how grateful I was to have made decisions as I made them based on the present rather than putting things off. When you lose someone that loves you and you love them, that love doesn’t die, it still influences my life every day. Fortunately my [second] wife, Anna, understands that because she lost her husband, one of my best friends, in the same week and after a while we got married, and we’ve had a little girl, Mary, which is a wonderful thing.” He married Anna (formerly Topalov) in 2007. Their daughter, Mary, is five. “She’s a joy to me,” he says of Mary. “It makes me realise I’m a bit selfish if I don’t offer to serve the community. This country’s been good to me, so why shouldn’t I be good for this country?” How does he feel about being a father again at 59? “I’d like to be a dad again,” he says. “When they hand you the baby in the hospital you know that there’s no one else there except you and them. It’s a great thing. “And it’s a great sadness when you feel what’s happening with the Aboriginal community, that Australia has the highest infant mortality rate in the

present really is giving our children a future, and that’s all I want to do.” In February, he announced plans to build a modern-day replica of the Titanic, to be built in China. How does he think the decision to build a Titanic replica has been received in Australia? “Because it was different, people don’t really understand it,” he says. “From a business basis we launched the Titanic rebuild in New York and London this year and we see $500 million worth of media around the world. We’ve got 40,000 people wanting to go on the ship. Fortunately it looks like we’ve made another few hundred million dollars from an idea.”


here did his obsession with the Titanic come from? “I don’t have an obsession with the Titanic. The Titanic was something that needed to be built. We all know how to make war. We get armies and we fund wars. People know about that. But it’s a lot harder to make peace. To make peace you’ve got to stick with it every day. You progress inch by inch. “The Titanic is something that can provide peace, can be a ship of peace between China, the United States and Europe, where a lot of the action is happening. So it has captured the imagination of the people in China. It’s captured the imagination of people in Europe and in the US. “We’ve got over 100 Australians working on that project at the moment. It’s got a whole Australian

world and other Australians babies are dying and none of us care about that. If it was your son or your daughter, if your sister was upset, you’d do something about it. And the fact that our politicians haven’t done anything about that issue – forget about reconciliation and land rights – all of those things are more important to me, not money, not materialism, but human babies’ lives.” In 2009 Palmer was rushed to hospital after suffering what was thought to be a heart attack. It was later dismissed as a heart palpitation. “It was a good development really,” he says, “because I had all the stress tests done and they scanned me and said I was in the lowest half a per cent of people who would have a heart attack. Despite my appearance and what people worry about, I had pretty good arteries.” I ask Palmer where and when he is happiest. “Well I think all Australians when they go to bed at night with their wife and talk about the day and say what their hopes, dreams and aspirations are, they get a little bit of sustenance from the things that you’ve got, and you know, despite all the things that happen to you every day, there is somewhere you can go, and someone who cares about you. “That’s love. And that’s something we need more of in this country. It’s not fashionable; politicians don’t talk about it, but basically that’s what we need.” What are the qualities he loves in Anna? Forgiveness, because I’m somebody that makes a lot of mistakes. Sometimes I get things wrong and she offers me forgiveness and reconciliation. And that’s a wonderful thing. It puts a heavy burden on you to forgive others, and turn the other cheek, but that’s what the Bible tells us to do.” \ We Welcome your feedback @

What is this Referendum on Local Councils all about? When our Constitution was written more than 112 years ago there was no mention of Federal Government funding for Local Councils or community projects. This means there is now an unforeseen loophole in the way many community projects are currently funded. It means important funds for community projects are open to challenge because Federal funding is not referred to in the Constitution. If any challenge is successful, Federal funding for important community facilities and services like ‘Roads to Recovery’, Child Care Centres, Libraries, Community Sports Grounds, Community Centres, Swimming Pools and Public Parks may have to be withdrawn. That’s why there is a referendum to bring the Constitution up to date – to ensure and protect the way many important community projects are funded.

Here are some more important things to know. Does this have the support of Federal Parliament with members voting in favour by a margin of 179 to 10? Does this have the support of Local Councils in all States and Territories around Australia?


Is updating the Constitution the only way to legitimise direct Federal funding for these community needs?


Will projects remain subject to public scrutiny and the proper checks and balances before approval?


Will Local Councils still be accountable and answerable to State Governments?

Has this update been supported by an independent committee of Constitutional experts? Does voting NO really put funding for local projects and services like ‘Roads to Recovery’, Childcare Centres, Libraries, Community Sports Grounds, Swimming Pools, Community Centres and Public Parks at risk?

Three techniques are used to improve the acoustics of a room; often a combination of all three is used. The most common approach is absorption, in which the sound energy is converted into minute amounts of heat energy, rather like a sponge. It is an effective solution but it reduces the volume of sound so that the hi-fi system has to be able to produce higher levels of sound to get the same result.


– darren Springthorpe

A second method is diffusion, which scatters the sound waves in the same way that blades of grass in a pond will scatter ripples.



“The shape of rooms has a huge impact on acoustics”

The third method is reflectors, which are usually smooth or shaped panels. These work in a similar way to diffusers but can be applied to a larger area. A diffuser usually needs to be deep so it will protrude into the room a significant distance, whereas reflectors do not intrude as much.


It is cheaper to design an acoustically pleasing room before it is built. The average cost is about $3000. Plus the room can be designed the way the owner wants. Changing room acoustics once they have been built often means intrusive changes. “The shape of rooms has a huge impact on room acoustics and the architect and the acoustic designer need to work together to get the best result,” says Springthorpe. “The client will have requirements with regards to the aesthetic of the space: how many windows, the amount of light.” Acoustics in the home has a darker dimension. The habit of listening to music through ear buds at high volume, common among younger people, is predicted to lead to widespread hearing damage. Ballarat-based general

practitioner Mike Pickavance says sound distortion is one factor that causes damage. “If it is not distorted, you don’t need to turn it up. I have lost count of the number of elderly people with impaired hearing and they really don’t like it; they find it very distressing. There are going to be a lot of hearing-impaired young people.” Alan Neuendorf, chief engineer at Live@BakerStreet says the MP3 format has “unfortunately” become the reference for quality sound, adding that it is a format of convenience rather than quality. “Why do people turn up music too loud? Because the quality at a reasonable volume is unsatisfying. What you want is satisfying music that is not loud and not soft, but just above speaking level.” Springthorpe says some analysts are predicting that the average age of people with hearing damage will fall from 58 to 28, which would mean three quarters of the Australian population will be deaf by 2050. He is running seminars for school children in an attempt to demonstrate the effects of hearing damage and the benefits of quality listening. \

She was taken by the importance the Japanese place on space and form, and applied these principles to much of her work. Evidence of her preoccupation with Oriental cultures is apparent through her use of colour and subject matter. She combines this inspiration with an understanding of Zen Buddhist philosophy and the beauty of the Australian bush. She is holding an artist’s talk about her artistic process.

Motoring \ rod easdown applauds the return of the nissan pulsar


issan Pulsars first hit the market in the late 1970s (they were Datsuns back then) and have always presented robust value. My fave was the N14 between 1990 and 1995, the best Pulsar of the lot. In 2005, Nissan replaced the Pulsar with a comprehensively dreadful thing carrying a name few could pronounce and no one could spell, Tiida. Many people outside the company, and quite a few inside it, thought this was dumb and it only sold on price. Nissan’s share of the small-car market plummeted. After just eight years Nissan has awakened to the error of its ways and it’s an the Pulsar is back. And it’s a ripper. easy car The current yardstick in the to drive and small-car market is Mazda’s 3 and fits like old the new Pulsar is every bit as good, but it faces two significant hurdles; socks the Mazda is cheaper (and down here price is critical) and it’s less powerful. The power isn’t something you will notice; the Nissan is lighter and feels just as fast and Pulsar is $21,878. Officially, anyway. responsive as the Mazda. As for price, well Nissan has learnt much from the Tiida Nissan salespeople have always had sharper embarrassment. The Pulsar’s soundproofing pencils than anyone. I wouldn’t be surprised is good, the manual gear change is fast and to see the Pulsar give the 3, and indeed the smooth, the front seats are excellent and Corolla, the Focus and the i30, a fright. there’s generous legroom in the rear. The boot Early evidence suggests this is already is commodious and there’s a full-size spare. happening. Pulsar sales are strong Equipment is as you’d expect. All models and Mazda has lately dropped the base get cruise, Bluetooth and five-star safety, price of the 3 to $19,990 – a great deal the STL adds a dash screen, USB and iPod by any definition. Meanwhile, the cheapest connectivity and other bits and pieces.

drive away


The Pulsar’s difference is that it’s good to drive. It rides well and handles acceptably, it cruises nicely in the country and the fuel economy is good. And it’s well made with high structural integrity. This is an easy car to drive and fits like old socks, but when you get thoroughly into the act of driving, it can be highly satisfying, just like the N14. So it’s a much more rewarding thing than any of its major competitors. \

Notice of Intention to Declare Special Rate

Ivanhoe Shopping Precinct In accordance with a resolution of the Banyule City Council (“Council”) made at its ordinary meeting held on 15 July 2013, notice is hereby given that at the ordinary meeting of the Council to be held on 9 September 2013, it is the intention of the Council to declare a combination of a Special Rate and Charge (“Special Rate”) under section 163(1) of the Local Government Act 1989 (“Act”) for the purposes of defraying expenses to be incurred by the Council in, administratively only and subject always to the approval, direction and control of the Council, providing funds to the incorporated body known and operating as the Ivanhoe Traders’ Association Incorporated (“Traders’ Association”) to be used for the purposes of the appointment of a part-time marketing coordinator, promotional, advertising, marketing, business development and other incidental expenses to be approved by the Council and agreed to from time to time between the Council and the Traders’ Association, all of which are associated with the encouragement of commerce, retail, and professional activity and employment in the Ivanhoe Shopping Precinct (“Precinct” or “Scheme”). A detailed plan of the Scheme area is available for inspection at the offices of the Council, during normal office hours. The Special Rate will be based on geographic criteria, having regard to the location and the capital improved value of those rateable properties in the Precinct that are used, or reasonably capable of being used, for commercial, retail or professional purposes.

The Special Rate will be levied by the Council sending a notice of levy annually to the persons who are liable to pay the Special Rate, which will require that the Special Rate must be paid by four instalments, to be paid by the dates which are fixed by Council in the notice. Council will consider cases of financial and other hardship and may reconsider other payment options for the Special Rate. For the purposes of having determined the total amount of the Special Rate to be levied under the Scheme, the Council considers and formally determines for the purposes of sections 163(2)(a), (2A) and (2B) of the Act that the estimated proportion of the total benefits of the Scheme to which the performance of the function and the exercise of the power relates (including all special benefits and community benefits) that will accrue as special benefits to all of the persons who are liable or required to pay the Special Rate is in a ratio of 1:1 (or 100%). This is on the basis that, in the opinion of the Council, all of the services and activities to be provided from the proceeds of the expenditure of the Special Rate are marketing, promotion and advertising related and will accordingly only benefit those properties and businesses included in the Scheme that are used, or reasonably capable of being used, for retail, commercial or professional purposes.

The Council considers that each rateable property and each business included in the Scheme area that is liable or required to pay the Special Rate will receive a special benefit because the viability of the Precinct as a commercial, retail and professional area will be enhanced through increased economic activity.

Copies of the proposed declaration of the Special Rate (which includes a detailed map of all the properties included in the Scheme and the respective amounts payable by each property) are available for inspection during normal office hours at any of the Council offices for a period of at least 28 days after the date of the publication of this notice, being until 23 August 2013.

In performing functions and exercising powers in relation to activities associated with the encouragement of commerce and retail activity in and around the area for which it is proposed the Special Rate will be declared, the Council intends to levy and spend an amount of $120,000 per annum, raising in total an amount of $600,000 over the 5 year period of the Scheme.

Any person may make a written submission to the Council under sections 163A and 223 of the Act.

The Special Rate is to be declared, and will remain in force, for the period commencing on 1 July 2013 and ending on 30 June 2018. For the period of the Scheme, the Special Rate will be assessed based on the capital improved value of each property multiplied by an amount of 0.047396, combined with a minimum Special Rate payable of $200 in each year to properties which are liable to pay the Special Rate. The contributions to the Special Rate are set out alongside each property in the proposed declaration of Special Rate and are applicable to the properties set out in the following table: Street Name
