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. \

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Care Centres, Libraries, Community Sports Grounds, Community Centres, Swimming Pools and Public Parks may have to be withdrawn.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?

YES YES

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

YES

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

YES

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?

YES YES YES

One scheme. One focus on individuals. One commitment to lifelong support. From 1 July, Australia’s current support system for people living with disability is being progressively replaced with DisabilityCare Australia. This new scheme will help provide a better quality of life for Australians with a significant and permanent disability, and for their families and carers too.

What’s new about DisabilityCare Australia? DisabilityCare Australia is a new way of funding personalised support for people with disability. As well as looking at a person’s immediate needs, it will take a lifelong approach and enable people with disability to have choice and control over their supports. It will focus on early intervention, recognising that timely support can minimise the impact of a disability on individuals, families and carers. Assistance will be provided at the right time, rather than only once people reach crisis.

Who is eligible? DisabilityCare Australia will help people who have a significant and permanent disability and who need assistance with everyday activities. This includes people whose disabilities are attributed to intellectual, cognitive, neurological, sensory, or physical impairment, or a psychiatric condition.

Will I lose my current support? No. Your current arrangements will stay in place until you have met DisabilityCare Australia to discuss your needs.

Will it affect my Disability Support Pension? No. Your Disability Support Pension will not be affected.

When does it all begin? DisabilityCare Australia is being rolled out in stages because it is a big change to the current system. Locations that start from July 2013 Barwon region of Victoria ............... People aged 0-64 Hunter region of NSW....................... People aged 0-64 South Australia ................................ Children aged 0-14 Tasmania .............................. Young people aged 15-24 Locations that start from July 2014 ACT.......................................................... People aged 0-64 Barkly region of NT............................. People aged 0-64 From July 2016, DisabilityCare Australia will continue to extend to more locations and age groups around Australia, including Queensland.

re you an adventurous diner? Would you give the inventive, East-collides-with-West cuisine of an Iron Chef-trained student a go? And tackle a flight of whiskies to diligently identify every nuance of an exhaustive list of tasting notes? And, if the owner of an illegally parked car in Bourke Street turned up with a mate, a tin of petrol, a packet of SOy SaucE cigarettes and a set of jumper leads, would you watch duck from the restaurant? Or head for home, fast? If you answered yes to any of the first three questions, Heirloom will be a night of adventure. If you responded enthusiastically to remaining while this misguided chap used junk mail he found in his car boot to create an ill-conceived funnel that leaked most of the fuel he aimed at his petrol tank into the gutter, while said mate stood holding the cigarettes and a lighter – you’re crackers. We got to our car as fast as we could, pursued by petrol fumes, and headed out of town. As far as I know, there was no explosion in the city that night. Although – forgive the laboured segue – there were some amazing and memorable flavour explosions the night we dined at Heirloom. Heirloom is a sister restaurant to Shoya in Market Lane and chef and co-owner Shigeo Nonaka is on hand for advice, but the kitchen belongs to executive chef Ryo Kitahara. He trained at Iron Chef Hiroyuki’s La Rochelle in Tokyo, before moving to Australia seven years ago. After stints at Azuma and Gallileo in Sydney, he moved to Duck Duck Goose in Melbourne. He joined Heirloom, named for the Japanese word “kahou” meaning family treasure, 18 months ago. \ I’m sure the quality of the sushi, sashimi, rice and noodles offered at Heirloom are top-notch, but our focus was on Kitahara’s Franco-Nippon cuisine, which runs across the izakaya menu and which we approached with trepidation and zeal. Potato dango – Japanese gnocchi with Roquefort and saiko miso cream – why not? Soy-sauce duck with foie grass, cacao, apple and cinnamon? Ah, OK. And wagyu with sauce ravigote, smoked cheese and smoked almonds? Let’s do it. The gnocchi, fried cubes of potato starch with a darkly caramelised shell, had just the right amount of crunch, yielding to fluffy interior. Served with a pale velvety sauce made from the sweet, white miso paste and tangy cheese, it was surprisingly palate-neutralising and a good drinks companion.

BOOkS \ BERNARD SALT REMINDS CoRRIE pERkIN THAT LIfE ISN’T ALL BuTTERNuT SNAp

A

t a recent launch party to celebrate his new book, Melbourne demographer Bernard Salt took a moment to read to the audience. The piece he chose is one of our favourites. In The karma of taking the office biscuit, first published in The Australian in February, 2012, the KPMG partner queries the type of work colleague who steals all the Butternut Snaps from the staff tea room biscuit jar while others, such as Salt, politely take whatever biscuit – usually a Milk Coffee – is on top. For years, the author admits he accepted his lot. “Fate would never yield unto me a Scotch Finger let alone a Butternut Snap. And it never occurred to me to question the grand design of the biscuit barrel’s biscuit allocation.’’ Then one Christmas break, while working in an almost-deserted office with fewer biscuit eaters, Salt pondered the continued absence of Butternut Snaps, despite daily biscuit-barrel top-ups. “Why has it taken years for this revelation to occur to me? Am I really so naïve as to think that some people of questionable biscuit ethics wouldn’t rummage a barrel in search of a better biscuit?” Salt’s parting message to those selfish colleagues? “Sometimes you need to take what life dishes out and accept it,’’ he advises. “Life isn’t all Butternut Snap, you know. Sometimes you have to work your way through bland bits to get to the good bits.’’ Salt’s new collection, Decent Obsessions: Why it’s okay to sweat the small stuff, celebrates the normal, the average, the good guy who doesn’t want to rock the boat. “I wasn’t special as a kid and I can in no way be considered special as an adult,’’ he reflects in his introduction. But Australia’s leading commentator

on demographic issues and social patterns considers himself privileged. Growing up in the 1960s, Salt lived in a Housing Commission house in a Victorian country town; he feels lucky that hard work has afforded him a good education, an interesting job, and a solid middle-class lifestyle. From this vantage point he views the harsh, competitive, “I’m special and therefore I deserve to have that job/that Noosa holiday/that car/that window office/that Butternut Snap’’ world with a mix of childlike curiosity and grumpy-old-man irritation. Not much in this wonderful collection escapes his tuned antennae. Salt tackles suburban aspirants who pronounce Brighton as “Brah-ton’’ with the same enthusiasm he applies to the baby boomer parent who spoils and overcompensates. This is a fabulous book to keep beside the bed, or to offer dinner party hosts as a thank-you gift. If goat’s cheese is on the menu, they may squirm uncomfortably. (“ … inside the goat’s cheese curtain live al fresco foodie, artsy-fartsy types and a large helping of the business set’’.) But they will be impressed by your creative gift choice and admire your ability, via Salt, to plug into the national zeitgeist. \ cperkin@theweeklyreview.com.au

A Long Way Home By Saroo Brierley » $29.99 (Viking)

Handmade Shoes For Men By László Vass and Magda Molnár » $29.99 (Ullmann)

This fascinating book details the extraordinary journey taken by Tim Lycett, a former detective, genealogist Sandra Playle, and others in their efforts to identify the remains of 250 Australian soldiers buried in an unmarked mass grave near the famous Fromelles battlefields of World War One. The investigation was a legal and logistical feat, driven by a desire to reunite families with their lost loved ones. Fromelles: The Final Chapters reminds us that history stays alive through the stories of its participants, the observations of secondary sources and the curiosity of ongoing generations to learn more. \

Saroo Brierley’s quest to find his natural mother via Google Earth has been well documented in recent weeks. We urge you to step behind the headlines and have a read of this absorbing account of one adopted Indian boy’s determination to piece together the fragmented memories of his childhood. The objective: to find the village he accidentally strayed from as a five-year-old. With clear recollections and good old-fashioned storytelling, Saroo, now a Tasmanian businessman in his early 30s, recalls the fear of being lost and the anguish of separation. \

Cricket’s Greatest Rivalry: A History Of The Ashes In 10 Matches By Simon Hughes » $32.99 (Hachette) “It has been called a perfume pot, a useless artifact, a silly little eggcup.’’ So begins British cricket writer Simon Hughes’ story of the Ashes and the rivalry that has endured for more than 100 years, and – before this month’s first Test match at Trent Bridge – 326 Test matches. Hughes focuses on 10 of the best, including one of the first big-crowd encounters at The Oval in 1882, the Adelaide battlefield third Test of 1933, Bradman’s Invincibles’ 1948 fourth Test at Headingley performance, and the first Test, Brisbane, 1975, when Lillee and Thomson ran amok. \

Such a beautiful book deserves a better title, surely? But stay with us, because this engaging hardcover is the perfect gift for a man who has everything, wishes he had everything, or harbours a shoe fetish that requires constant stimulation. Hungarian-born shoemaker and designer László Vass takes us on the shoe’s journey, from untamed piece of leather to an elegant piece of craftsmanship designed to protect the foot. Colour photographs complement the various stories of the shoe’s history, how a pair of men’s shoes is born, and the various styles available in today’s marketplace. \

Motoring \ rod easdown applauds the return of the nissan pulsar

N

nissan Pulsar stl sedan What is it? Back at last. What’s in it? A 96-kilowatt 1.8-litre with a six-speed manual. A continuously variable auto adds $2250. is it thirsty? i used 9 litres per 100 kilometres in the city, 6.6 in the country. The official combined figure is 7.2.

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.

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. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au
