PAY NOT PLAY Child care workers are asking for a professional wage and Marrickville Councillors are getting behind the campaign. Local early childhood workers say that they are more than just baby-sitters and should be paid accordingly. At Hyde Park tomorrow many local workers will march as part of National Big Steps Day to raise awareness of their predicament.

Residents in standoff with RMS over vacant block VANESSA WATSON

T

he future of public land at Lewisham currently used by residents for parking is in doubt, with the Roads and Maritime Services to sell the site under State Government direction. The vacant land on the corner of 40 Old Canterbury Road and Barker Street is used for parking for 15 houses and employees of a panel beating business during business hours. On November 6, Marrickville Mayor Victor Macri moved a mayoral minute that the Council

write to the RMS to ask that the sale be postponed and the site not be fenced off while Council holds discussions with the RMS to achieve parking and safety solutions. “It is believed that without the site for car parking, up to 25 vehicles will be competing for just seven car parking spaces currently available on the northern side of Barker Street,” he said. “The safety concerns for this area if the block was sold and a structure built on it are numerous. The vacant block provides better visibility in the vicinity for the thousands of vehicles, trucks, buses and the like, using this road daily.” Barker Street residents and neighbours Renee

Edge and Adele Cowie are opposed to the sale and believe safety is a significant concern at the site already, which would be exacerbated if the site was sold and developed. “We are mainly concerned about safety. The corner of the property has been rounded off so cars have no reason or warning to slow down. With a house built on this site, this will also obstruct the visibility of both drivers and pedestrians,” Ms Edge said. On Wednesday, an RMS spokeswoman told the Weekender the land will be sold at public auction in accordance with standard RMS processes and will fund roads and road safety programs.

o anybody who thinks CCTV cameras are a breach of privacy – I say wake up! They aren’t there to invade your personal space or to spy on you. Security cameras are a way of keeping you safe. A street with working cameras, being monitored by trained professionals, is a lot safer to walk on than one that isn’t. I mean heaven forbid the worst did happen – wouldn’t you rather someone be watching and call for help immediately? Police could be on the scene helping you and arresting the offender before you even have time to pull out your phone and call triple zero. To me it goes back to the same old theory that if you aren’t doing anything wrong they won’t get you into trouble and if you are assaulting someone well

images are then released to the media to launch a public appeal for help. Police say it’s through these images that hundreds of crimes are solved each year. Assaults or robberies that may have otherwise proved too difficult. I can assure you after being in the control room this week the operators are far too busy to be sitting there watching you simply walk down a street – they are flat out trying to monitor more than a dozen screens. And none of the vision is kept or sent to YouTube – if it’s not requested by police or a member of the public it’s deleted after 28 days. So this weekend if you are heading into the city and plan on having a few drinks PLEASE walk the route with the cameras – you never know, it may just stop you being injured or worse.

you deserve to be arrested. Th is week I did an experiment – I walked a kilometre down George Street in the city and was spotted on nine different cameras. When I walked the same distance along Sussex Street, the next one over, I was only seen once. To me, as a woman, knowing I never left the operator’s sight on George Street is a massive comfort. A way of protecting myself. Officers told me the cameras often also provide crucial evidence in investigations – both proving and disproving allegations, because number one the camera doesn’t lie and number two unlike a person’s memory the details don’t fade over time. When a shop or business is robbed the fi rst thing police do is ask if there are CCTV cameras fitted in the store. Those

State Opposition, students protest fine arts funding cuts

Lawn mowing & Garden Maintenance

VANESSA WATSON

eader of the Opposition, John Robertson, will present the major work of Dulwich Hill TAFE student, Penny Ryan, to Premier Barry O’Farrell in protest of the funding cuts to Fine Arts courses. Ms Ryan was one of hundreds of arts students who took to Macquarie Street on Wednesday in protest of the cuts, carrying recycled canvases for signs and chanting slogans like “we’ve got the worst Premier in the world”, “art is work” and “shame Barry shame”. From January 2013, Fine Arts TAFE courses will no longer be subsidised by the NSW Government after it announced that courses including sculpture, visual arts and ceramics, while popular, did not create strong employment pathways for graduates. A claim contested by Ms Ryan. “Look around the streets, every image has been made by an artist,” Ms Ryan said. “4,000 students won’t be able to complete their courses. I’m halfway through my course, a lot of other people are halfway through their course, and unless I can come up with $8,000 next year to do two small units of study, I won’t be able to get my qualification.” The students formed a human chain that stretched almost the length of Macquarie Street as petitions containing more than 23,000 signatures were stacked into the arms of Marrickville MP Carmel Tebbutt by representatives from about 30

art schools. “We will be presenting these petitions in the parliament,” said Ms Tebbutt to the crowd, before handing half the stack to Opposition leader John Robertson. “They’re pretty heavy, so we can share these.” Ms Tebbutt said the funding cuts ignored the contribution the arts makes to the economy and community. “Just like hairdressers and mechanics, we need our artists as well. “Th is is a fantastic show of support for ending these fee increases for fi ne arts students, so well done Penny and everyone involved.”

After emerging from parliament house, Ms Tebbutt said the speaker had refused the delegation permission to go into the parliament with Penny’s art piece petition: a large, two-metre wide printed piece on poles, etched with artists’ names on the canvas and a series of wax symbols attached with string. “That’s a great shame and I just think it shows that they don’t understand or the importance of the arts, they don’t value the importance of the arts, and that’s why this protest is so important,” she said. According to NSW Education Minister Andrew Piccoli, a “commercial fee” will be charged for Fine Arts courses.

The Shocking Truth About Roof Restoration

04

Unscrupulous roof restoration have been telling salespeople unsuspecting homeowners that they need a full roof restoration (clean, repair, repoint, seal, and paint) when in many cases all that they need is a simple repair. This has been going on for years but in recent times has reached epidemic levels. Here’s what typically happens... A telemarketer or door-to-door canvasser offers you a free roof inspection. Sounds like good idea right...? It is a good idea unless the roof inspector (usually a salesperson) does what unfortunately happens in many of these instances: he or she will grossly exaggerate the problems and insist that you really need a full roof restoration when perhaps you don’t. Now there are many instances where a roof restoration is beneficial. But there are also many instances where all you may need is simple roof repair. Local company Reliance Roof Restoration offer a free roof safety inspection where you get the option of actually seeing your roof close up. Any problems are actually pointed out to you. That way, you can be certain that any problems they advise you of are real and not made up or exaggerated. You can either accompany the inspector on the roof, or if you’re unable to do that, you’ll be shown photos taken on a high resolution digital camera. If your roof is fine and needs no work at all, then Reliance will advise you of that. If all that you need is a small repair, then

Here’s what one satisf ed client said of their experience in dealing with Reliance Roof Restoration:

“A professional approach by all associated with the job. I was impressed with your attention to detail and advice on other (snall) problems. Follow-up inspection and after job touch-up work was particularly impressive. The friendly nature of all the workers made them a pleasure to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending ‘Reliance Roof Restoration’ to anyone wanting their roof restored.” Ken Durham

Not enough: Better wages demanded by childcarers union-led movement to improve wages and conditions for child care workers has gained the support of Marrickville Council. A number of Councillors are set to march alongside families and workers at Hyde Park tomorrow for National Big Steps Day, a campaign thanking early childhood staff for their work and advocating better working conditions. On Tuesday morning, Councillors Sylvie Ellsmore and Emanuel Tsardoulias joined child care staff including Eloise Ryan at the Kids Kollege centre at Marrickville to help fashion red necklaces from uncooked penne pasta pieces to wear on Big Steps Day. “They promised they’d keep their pasta necklaces on all day, even during their meetings,” Ms Ryan said of the two councillors’ red pasta jewellery. Ms Ryan, 24, a certified child care supervisor, has worked at Kids Kollege since it opened more than two years ago and said every child care worker at the Marrickville centre would attend the march. “Our centre is 100 per cent membership for the union,” she said. “I think the thought of being able to get

a professional wage is exciting for all of us… Really the amount of work that we do deserves a professional wage.” Ms Ryan said more resources were needed so childcare staff could properly document for parents all the good work invested in their children each day. “We have so much passion for the children and we want to be able to document it all, but there just isn’t enough time to get it on paper and show that we’re actually not just babysitters. “But apart from that a huge thing is the pay. You could not afford to live by yourself, pay rent and buy groceries on a childcare wage.” She said all her colleagues apart from the centre director, all women aged in their early 20’s to mid 30’s, still live with their parents. At the November 6 council meeting, Cr Ellsmore and Cr Jo Haylen moved a motion calling on the council to actively support the Big Steps campaign and recognise the vital contribution early childcare workers make to the development of children. “These people are paid to look after our future, our children,” Cr Haylen said. “Currently, a childcare worker with a certificate III earns just $18.58 per hour, which is close to the minimum wage and does not value the work undertaken by these people.”

Campaigner wants NSW gas to be CSG free

Child at risk: Parent driving was intoxicated A 39-year-old woman will face court later this month after she allegedly drove while intoxicated with a toddler present in the car. About 12.15pm on Sunday, November 11, police were conducting roadside breath-testing on Liverpool Road, Summer Hill, when they stopped the woman whose roadside breath test returned a positive result. At the time, the woman’s three-yearold daughter was strapped into a baby capsule in the backseat. The woman was arrested and taken to Burwood Police Station where she allegedly provided a breath analysis sample of 0.157 and was charged with driving with a high range prescribed concentration of alcohol and had her licence suspended. She will appear in court later this month. Police have notified the Department of Family and Community Services of the incident.

VANESSA WATSON

t Peters resident and president of the Anti-Coal Seam Gas Sydney group, Jacinta Green, has switched off the gas at her home to highlight the fact natural gas supplies sold in Sydney contain coal seam gas. Ms Green, 42, who is also the vice president of the Lock the Gate Alliance, said she made the decision to replace her gas stove with an induction cook top after she was recently bothered by a door-to-door salesman from an energy company, who tried to convince her his employer’s natural gas supplies were free from coal seam gas to get her to sign a contract. “AGL in NSW and Origin in QLD both actually drill for coal seam gas,” Ms Green said. “The companies are not distinguishing between natural and coal seam gas and any demand for gas ultimately results in a demand for coal seam gas. Gas can no longer be seen as clean and green.” Ms Green said she hoped her campaign would inform people about the nature of the gas network in NSW and asked people to push for change by contacting their energy retailers to ask for a CSGfree gas supply. People signed up to green energy plans can now select 100 per cent renewable sources, an option she said didn’t exist 10 years ago. “I think we should be able to specify where we want our gas to come from. If I could fi nd a natural gas supplier who did distinguish between the types of gas, great, but none of the companies are prepared to.” An AGL spokeswoman said it was a matter of public record that AGL’s natural gas supply contains about five per cent coal seam gas, and pointed people to the company’s website and the Camden Gas Project.

Train robbery: Victim feared he d be assaulted

Jacinta Green removing gas appliances from her home.

She said the company’s coal seam mine site, the Camden Gas Project, was potentially set to expand, with an application currently on public exhibition to extend the Sydney drill site and double the total proportion of coal seam gas in its supply from about five to 10 per cent. An AGL press release from November 5 stated the northern expansion of the Camden Gas Project will further AGL’s “best-practice coal seam gas project, which has been supplying natural gas to New South Wales families and businesses for more than 10 years,” and that the expansion would reduce reliance on gas from interstate. When asked about Origin Energy’s use of coal seam gas, a spokeswoman said Origin does not have any coal seam gas operations in NSW.

About 11.30am on Saturday, November 10, a male passenger was robbed on a train between Sydenham and Marrickville stations. The victim was approached by a male who demanded property. The victim, fearing he would be assaulted, handed over his mobile phone and a gold ring. The male offender was described as being about 25-years-old, of Middle Eastern appearance, with short brown hair and a thin beard across his chin. He was also described as having several sores on his left arm and knee and wearing blue-coloured shorts, a plain white shirt and white sports shoes. It is possible that the offender alighted from the train at Hurlstone Park. Police urge anyone with information to contact Marrickville Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Marrickville Police are currently investigating this incident.

or anyone with a sweettooth and a penchant for fresh picked avocados, now’s the time to indulge your passions with a sweet, low-alcohol 2012 Deakin Estate Moscato that’s a wonderful buy at just $10. Made from Muscat Gordo Blanco grapes from the Murray Darling region of north-western Victoria, this one’s got just six per cent alcohol and has a nice lightbodied palate that’s spritzy from careful use of carbon dioxide, a natural zingy acidity, and a finish suggestive of green apples. This is a wine to enjoy with light desserts like meringues and cheesecakes, fresh home-made fruit salad, or even ice cream with fresh avocados whipped through it. And you will definitely want a glass or three to go with a dessert idea that came out of this year’s Avocado Masterclass Series – a dessert of chocolate, avocado and lime. Oh yeah… One for lunch: With a 2012 vintage defined by extremely low yields (which creates great flavour concentration in the fruit), Peter Logan had everything going for him and the annual Rosé he produces at his cold climate Logan Wines at Orange in NSW’s Central West. “The fruit for our 2012 Hannah Rosé

developed really vibrant flavours typical of our cold, high altitude location,” Peter said. “It meant for a resultant wine that’s light yet luscious, elegant and restrained.” Peter uses Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Shiraz in his Rosé that he describes as “being inspired by a combination of lovely southern French Rosé and Chardonnay”. At $22 enjoy with an asparagus salad, or with something hot, like spicy Indian dishes.

Rosemount: Thirty but still thriving arrickville charity Rosemount Good Shepherd Youth and Family Services is celebrating 30 years of service to the community today with a fundraising event for disadvantaged youth.

Rosemount will also host a celebration for the Marrickville community at their Marrickville Road premises on Tuesday, November 27. “What a perfect fit, young people working to give other young people opportunities,” said Rosemount CEO Lyn Harrison about tonight’s event. “Th is is a significant milestone for Rosemount. We wanted to specially mark the occasion and turned to students at Sydney Institute for assistance. The events and hospitality students were keen to volunteer their time to support us and will be hosting the event with apprentice chefs providing the four-course meal.” The evening’s theme is ‘30 and thriving’ in recognition of the founders, the Good Shepherd Sisters, who established lasting programs that meet the needs of young people and their families – not one of Rosemount’s programs have closed down in its entire 30 years. The theme also acknowledges Rosemount’s growth in that time, with funds raised to be put towards Rosemount’s newest program, the Th rive Program, which has seen the organisation extend service provision beyond the inner city and inner west. Set up in 1982, Rosemount provides research, advocacy, education, and counseling programs for youth.

Connecting us to a better future

|

The National Broadband Network rollout is underway, find out more at australia.gov.au/nbn or call 1800 023 076.

Facts and benefits: • The NBN is designed to support Australia’s future broadband needs. • As the optic fibre network is rolled out, it replaces the copper phone network. • The NBN will support wi-fi in homes and businesses. • The NBN optic fibre network will be capable of providing broadband speeds up to 40 times faster than ADSL broadband. • The NBN will help Australians compete in the global economy.

The Inner City Weekender

As our use of mobile technologies increases, more often than not, we’re using wi-fi to connect to the fixed-line network at our home or work. And it’s the fixed-line network that’s carrying the majority of the data load. The NBN will support better wi-fi in all Australian homes and businesses. With technologies such as optic fibre directly to the home, you and your wi-fi connected devices can access fast, reliable broadband.

hen people think of Bali, often what springs to mind are beautiful and intricate Balinese carvings and holidays

“We’re also reducing our store’s carbon footprint through our product selection. I am trying to promote bamboo a bit more, because the Balinese people can recycle that growth much faster than other materials.” Some of Bali Fling’s most popular items include day beds, stone carvings, letter boxes, outdoor lights, dining tables and water features. As well as interior and landscape design and traditional building materials, Ms Reid’s business also offers you the chance

to kick back and relax on the Indonesian island at one of her B&B homes in Kedewatan in Ubud, which are available to holiday-makers and also stand as examples of the design possibilities using products from Bali Fling. “We don’t advertise it, basically it’s just word-of-mouth... We give all the work back to the village.” Ms Reid, who has expansion plans in the near future, said she hopes to travel further afield next year to Sumatra and Java to source more unique designs.

Asia, such as wood or stone carvings, to specification. “I’ve been going to Bali for holidays for probably 30 years,” Ms Reid said. “I just fell in love with the artwork and the craftsmen, they’re just so talented and incredible.” Many of Bali Fling’s products are also chosen for their sustainability, including pieces made from recycled materials including timber from houses and boats. “We fi nd the older timber has been cured and dried properly,” Ms Reid said.

Alternatively you may decide to take advantage of a good holiday package. You will also enjoy taking mental and spiritual journeys by taking up a course of study or training. Art, music and theatre will capture your interest in the weeks ahead.

Your passions are going to be aroused in some important way and you could fi nd yourself behaving in an unusual manner due to the depth of your emotions. Make sure that you are not simply reacting out of anger or some kind of feverish response to other people’s actions. Family troubles may have made you feel somewhat insecure recently and decisive action is required so be brave!

The Inner City Weekender

Something important concerning relationships must be tackled over the next few weeks. You and your lover will be putting extra energy into your partnership. Th is may be in the form of taking up a sporting hobby or some other kind of shared interest. However, Mars is known as the God of War, therefore you will need to be careful of becoming hot under the collar at the behaviour and actions of loved ones.

Th is is an excellent time to get your hands on any kind of equipment or machinery that will make your life easier. Th is may be something that will make you more efficient at your job or something that makes housework and the gardening easier to do. The planets are making you feel alive and effective and something of a workaholic, which is rather impressive. However you must be careful not to wear yourself out.

It seems that the theme is for fun and Mars and Uranus continue this social trend, mixing in a little romantic passion for good measure. Th is is the time to circulate among people you like and respect. You never know – a friendship could deepen into something more intimate before very long. Time spent with children or younger people will be exciting and connect you with your own inner child.

HOROSCOPES by Francis A Bevan

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

Your energy is going to be directed into your home and the area surrounding it. Thus you may spend time working on or in the home or in the garden surrounding your abode. However, you will also be feeling rather defensive and are likely to over react to any criticism of your efforts – whether it’s intended or not. Therefore, you will need to pull yourself together and stop taking everything to heart and learn to accept some criticism.

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

Mars marches into your communication house this week, so being direct, not to say forceful, in speech will be a feature of the next few weeks. If you’ve got something to say then there’s no power in heaven or on earth that’s going to prevent you from saying it! Life is going to be rather hectic as there will be a truck load of emails, phone calls, correspondence or paperwork that will need attending to as well.

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

The big focus is going to be on your fi nancial affairs and the red planet is going to enable you to increase your funds and to pay off your debts. However, you will need to be careful of your spending habits as you will be inclined to buy things impulsively. Confl icts are likely over money so think before you act. Also this is not the best time to commit yourself to any long term repayment schemes.

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

Mars has now entered your own sign of the zodiac and it will spend a few weeks there, bringing zest, energy and a welcomed element of fun into your life. You seem to be on a roll at the moment and, as long as you keep up the momentum, there is no reason why you should not be able to reach your objectives. However, you will need to be careful of getting angry at the behaviour or thoughtless actions of others.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

There are going to be extra pressures being placed on you either at home or at work and you are going to want to escape all the confusion that seems to be surrounding you. Th is is not the best time in which to make too many far flung decisions as you are likely to be feeling highly vulnerable and confused. Be careful of stupid accidents happening as a connection with hospitals or doctors is likely.

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

Friends are likely to be a strong influence on you over the next few weeks. Old friends may have interesting ideas to put your way, while new ones could come crowding into your life quite quickly. You may join some kind of very active group that shares your interests and is keen to have you as part of its organisation. However, there will be a need to watch what you say around certain people.

KEEPING FIT

by Susan Garrad

by David Stein

Water the weight-loss wonder Q. I’ve heard that just drinking more water can help you lose weight. Is that true? A. It sounds too good to be true, but it really works. Water truly is the magic potion in weight loss. It also reduces fluid retention, flushes toxins from our bodies and gives us energy. And it’s free! So how does it help us lose weight? Water naturally suppresses the appetite and helps the body metabolise stored fat. Studies have shown that not drinking enough water causes an increase in fat deposits, while drinking more water can actually reduce fat deposits. The overweight person needs more water than the thin one. Larger people have larger metabolic loads. Since we know that water is the key to fat metabolism, it follows that the overweight person needs more water. Drinking enough water is the best treatment for fluid retention. When the body gets less water, it perceives this as a threat to survival and begins to hold on to every drop. Water is stored in extracellular spaces (outside the cells). Th is shows up as swollen feet, legs and hands. Water helps to maintain proper muscle tone by giving muscles their natural ability to contract and by preventing dehydration. It also helps to prevent the sagging skin that usually follows weight loss. Shrinking cells are buoyed by water, which plumps the skin and leaves it clear, healthy and

Fat busting misconceptions

resilient. Water helps rid the body of waste. During weight loss, the body has a lot more waste to get rid of – all the metabolised fat must be shed. Again, adequate water helps flush out the waste. Water can help relieve constipation. When the body gets too little water, it siphons what it needs from internal sources. The colon is one primary source. Result? Constipation. But when a person drinks enough water, normal bowel function usually returns. So, get yourself a two litre water bottle and take it with you everywhere throughout the day and watch the kilos disappear.

I

had a lovely big cheeseburger yesterday. Have you ever seen the movie ‘Supersize me’? If you have you know we are all fat because we eat too many fatty cheeseburgers and fries. But what if that’s a big load of rubbish? If you’re up for a different viewpoint why don’t you google up a movie called ‘Fathead’. It certainly will raise your eyebrows in a couple of places. If you know some people who are very low fat types get them to have a look too. They might learn something and if not it’s funny anyway. Have a look around at some fat research, and not just the ‘fat is worse than the devil’ websites. I found this on the Weston Price Foundation site: “Saturated fats, such as butter, meat fats, coconut oil and palm oil, tend to be solid at room temperature. According to conventional nutritional dogma, these traditional fats are to blame for most of our modern diseases; heart disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes, malfunction of cell membranes and even nervous disorders like multiple sclerosis. However, many scientific studies indicate that it is processed liquid vegetable oil (which is laden with free radicals formed during processing), and artificially hardened vegetable oil called ‘trans fat’ that are the culprits in

Naturopath Susan Garrad from Women’s Health Naturally, Summer Hill can be contacted on 9798 9322 or visit www.womenshealthnaturally.com.au

these modern conditions, not natural saturated fats. Humans need saturated fats because we are warm blooded. Our bodies do not function at room temperature, but at a tropical temperature. Saturated fats provide the appropriate stiff ness and structure to our cell membranes and tissues. When we consume a lot of liquid unsaturated oils, our cell membranes do not have structural integrity to function properly, they become too “floppy”, and when we consume a lot of trans fat, which is not as soft as saturated fats at body temperature, our cell membranes become too “stiff ”. Contrary to the accepted view, which is not scientifically based, saturated fats do not clog arteries or cause heart disease. In fact, the preferred food for the heart is saturated fat; and saturated fats lower a substance called Lp(a), which is a very accurate marker for proneness to heart disease.” Anyone else up for a big juicy home cooked steak, fried in butter with two eggs?

BOOK-TURNED-PLAY EXCEEDS GREAT EXPECTATIONS T

he final night of a theatrical reimagining of Charles Dickens’ classic tale Great Expectations will take place tomorrow starring an array of talented, young, inner west thespians. Featuring Newtown’s Stephen LyyodCoombs as Herbert and Camperdown’s Rebecca Safir as Biddy, as well as Cheyne Fynn of Stanmore and Richard Hilliar of Dulwich Hill, the curtains will close tomorrow night after the production opened on November 1. “It’s comedy, it’s drama, it’s got love and tragedy,” said Mr Llyod-Coombs, 27, of the classic tale of unrequited love and longing, revenge, betrayal, redemption and the corrosive power of ambition. Mr Lyyod-Coombs, a former student of Newtown High School of the Performing Arts, said the play’s venue, the docklandsstyle Atyp Studio 1 at The Wharf, Walsh Bay, helps to lend the production an authentic “1800’s feel” to the play, which has much to offer to audiences. “Love and trying to find your place in the world are things that are still very relevant in our time,” he said. Directed by John Harrison, the Bakehouse Theatre production at of Great Expectations also features Camperdown’s Rebecca Safir. The 24-year-old described her character Biddy as a maternal figure in the play. “Her outward function is to take care of the others, but she also teaches the main character, Pip, to read and write,” Ms Safir said. Ms Safir encourages lovers of Dickens to see the stage production, which

falls during the 200-year anniversary of the writer’s birth and was originally commissioned for the Royal Shakespeare Company. “I’m a huge, huge Dickens fan, I think

he’s an extraordinary writer and I think perhaps more so than many classic authors, he’s stood the test of time. “It doesn’t feel like a book that someone’s turned into a play… He carries

you on a tide of storytelling.” Tickets are $32.50 full price and $25 for concessions, $25 per person for groups of four or more. For bookings, phone 9270 2400 or visit www.atyp.com.au.

The Your Baby Can Read! programme is a fun, multisensory approach to teaching language. The programme works so well because it is easy for a child to connect the written word to the word sound, and the meaning of the word. By utilizing this approach to teaching, children have a greater chance at reading success! Your baby will see the words, hear the words, say the words, see images and videos related to the words, the words are always used in context and your child is encouraged to do an action related to the words. Your child will SEE, HEAR, SAY and DO! Your child can learn to read as easily and naturally as he or she learns to talk.

Suitable from 3 months of age.

CHATTER ON THE BOX WITH NATHAN TAYLOR O

ne of the most highly anticipated iPad apps of the year was released last week – Foxtel Go. Foxtel Go (pictured) features 21 live streaming channels plus selected Catch-Up titles. The free app is now available to Foxtel residential customers and allows TV lovers to watch Foxtel anywhere they go, pending they have an Internet connection of course. The Foxtel Go live channels already available include: The Lifestyle Channel, A&E, Sky News, National Geographic Channel, Discovery Channel, Disney, Cartoon Network, Channel [V], Cbeebies, Sports Play powered by Fox Sports, Fox Sports Plus 1, 2, 3 and 4, and Eurosport. More channels are expected to be rolled out over the coming months. Foxtel Go launched on iPads with other tablets to follow in the New Year. This app is packed with cool features and will change the way

we watch TV forever. Just make sure you have a large data package on your device, that’s all I’ll say. Channel Ten have axed struggling programs, ‘Breakfast’ and ‘Ten Morning News’. Production will stop for both shows on November 30. ‘Breakfast’ has struggled all year against longstayers ‘Today’ and ‘Sunrise’ and never reached the numbers to make it viable for Ten. It’s understood the network will start to look for new ways to compete against Seven and Nine before the new ratings season begins in February. Foxtel has commissioned ‘Aussie Pickers’, an Australian version of the popular US factual series, ‘American Pickers’, which sees two hosts looking for forgotten antique treasures. The series will follow two yet-to-be-announced Australian

pickers as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and sheds, meeting quirky characters and hearing their stories. Foxtel Executive Director of Television Brian Walsh said: “‘Aussie Pickers’ is a show with pedigree. ‘American Pickers’ is one of the most popular shows on our newly launched factual entertainment channel A&E and this local version will undoubtedly capture the interest and imagination of Australian audiences and provide an excellent opportunity to further extend the brand”. The 10-part series will air on A&E in 2013. Foxtel has also commissioned ‘Real Housewives of Australia’, based on the hugely popular American ‘Real Housewives’ reality series. The show will take viewers on a wild ride into the

extravagant lives of five of Australia’s most privileged, powerful and glamorous women. The series will introduce audiences to an elite group of women and reveal intimate and often outrageous details about their relationships, career triumphs, pitfalls and family drama. Casting for the show begins in the coming weeks and the 10-part series will air on Arena in 2013. Lastly, I just want to congratulate Channel Nine for putting on a spectacular ‘Big Brother’ finale, which saw Benjamin Norris take home $250,000, a brand new car and a fiancée. Due to its success across key demographics, the series is expected to return to Nine in 2013. If Nine want to make ‘Big Brother’ a powerhouse like it used to be for Ten, they need to create a live Internet stream so we get to see more of the action!

The Inner City Weekender

The Re-Living Room Take a peek at Anastasia Klose eating chips, dancing alone, and watching TV. The artist will be spending the next two months living at the Museum of Contemporary Art re-enacting what it’s like to be unemployed.

For details visit www.mca. com.au.

Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival Beginning on Wednesday, November 7, local and international female jazz performers will come together in the Sound Lounge at the Seymour Centre for the inaugural Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival. Featured artists include Trio M (USA), Cyrille Aimee (France/NY), No Tango (Germany) and Australia’s own Andrea Keller with Gian Slater, and the Sandy Evans Sextet. The Festival will run until November 17. For details visit www.seymourcentre.com.

Beautiful One Day Listen to the stories of community members about the death of a Palm Island local whilst in police custody in the theatrical documentary ‘Beautiful One Day’. Presented by three theatre companies (Belvoir, Ilbijerri and version 1.0), ‘Beautiful One Day’ turns outrage into understanding and acts as an antidote to relentlessly negative media coverage. Made through conversation, argument, long walks and frequent eruptions of joyfulness, this is a show about what an honest talk might really look like. ‘Beautiful One Day’ is on from Saturday, November 17 until Sunday, December 23 at the Belvoir Theatre. Full price tickets are $62. For further details visit www.belvoir.com.au.

Wicked Women Treat your eyes to award-winning artist Rosemary Valadon’s latest exhibition, ‘Wicked Women: An exhibition by Rosemary Valadon’. This exhibition features portraits of contemporary women, such as author and model Tara Moss, inspired by the colourful, sexy and kitsch art of the pulp fiction era. Embracing and subverting genre stereotypes, Valadon’s subjects each recreate poses of classic film posters or book covers featuring female criminals. ‘Wicked Women’ runs on weekends until April 28 next year, from 10am to 5pm at the Justice and Police Museum in Sydney. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children. For more details visit www. hht.net.au.

Between Two Waves In a new play brought to you by the Griffin Studio, ‘Between Two Waves’ follows climatologist Daniel and his spirited other half Fiona as they deal with the trials of starting a family in an uncertain future. An urgent and searching play about the most pressing issue of our times, ‘Between Two Worlds’ is showing until Saturday, November 17 at SBW Stables Theatre in Kings Cross. Tickets are $49 for adults and $30 for children. For more details on the performance visit www.griffintheatre. com.au.

New South Wales Young Sydney artist Alan Jones – not the radio shock-jock – presents ‘New South Wales’, an exhibition of contemporary paintings and photographs which explore his family ancestry and convict past. Using varying media, Jones’ artworks are on display until Saturday, November 17 at Watters Gallery in East Sydney. Entry is free. For more information visit www. wattersgallery.com.

The Rocks Village Bizarre Experience a fun, quirky, spontaneous night out as The Rocks comes alive with the Village Bizarre. The Rocks Village Bizarre features all sorts of weirdly wonderful activities and performances, including pedal-powered cinema, silent discos, hula hooping, and more. Meet peculiar performers, burlesque beauties and a cornucopia of curious characters in this night-time adventure. The Rocks Village Bizarre is on every Friday night until Sunday, December 23 in the streets and laneways of The Rocks. For more details visit www.therocks.com.au.

Smarter, safer, more efficient The all new Subaru Forrester is looking sharp ahead of its 2013 release ubaru’s fourth generation All-Wheel Drive is set to debut in Australia and has an impressive list of new features that build on its long-established reputation for value, safety, great engineering and fun driving. Due to debut in Australia in the fi rst quarter of 2013, the new features of the Subaru Forester include X-Mode on auto models which offers confidence and control on difficult terrain for even better rough road performance; the award winning driver assist system EyeSight; new generation horizontally opposed Boxer engines that offer significant improvements in fuel efficiency and emissions; multi-function display, refi ned cabin comfort and a six-speed manual gearbox. Subaru Australia Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: “the new Forester is an incredibly strong package from any perspective, whether style, features, safety or engineering”. “It builds impressively on Forester’s core values that have seen it dominate its sales segment in the past four years. “And it retains its exclusive All-Wheel Drive ability, making it ideal for customers who value their recreational and lifestyle choices.” In Australia, the new Forester will draw on the theme of smarter, safer, further – smarter, thanks to a wide array of new technology; safer, in line with Subaru’s long-term commitment to occupant protection; and further, thanks to a wide range of engine and transmission efficiencies, and its ability to traverse all roads.

ulwich Hill Bicycle Club recently won three silver medals at the prestigious Presidents Cup cycling event held at the Duncan Gray Velodrome. 27 clubs from acros the state competed in the event held on November 10. Club member Joanne Troutman won second place in the women’s open and 11-year-old rider Tess Wallace claimed second prize in the junior girls under 13’s Presidents Cup. The four riders in the men’s A elite pursuit team took silver in the team pursuit event. Club president Eleri Morgan-Thomas said it was a great result for the club and congratulated all involved on the day. “It’s a high level of competition with other riders there riding professionally, so for the club to achieve silver in three races is a very good result,” Ms Morgan-Thomas said. “I’m delighted that Tess Wallace is in her fi rst year of racing and up on the podium. “At Dunc Gray, we got a public commendation from the announcer for having a strong and growing junior track program and other clubs were encouraged to [follow] our lead.” Tess’ mother, Jenny Wallace, described her

daughter as “very determined”. “It’s a really good club because all the seniors come in and encourage the juniors,” she added. Ms Morgan-Thomas said riders prequalified for the Presidents Cup through a series of earlier races organised by Cycling NSW and that the event is handicapped to give slower riders head starts so that “anyone can win, if they ride tactically”. “The trick if you are a slower rider is to

team up with the next slowest person and try and stay ahead of the pack. Joanne Troutman did exactly that to achieve a second and rode a very tactically clever race,” she said. She said Dulwich Hill Bicycle Club has a strong track heritage and also recently won the Club Points Score Challenge at RAW Track, a winter racing program, for the fourth consecutive year. “We also race on the road with juniors, elite and master riders.”
