Neighbours fume over BP

• By Andrew King

RESIDENTS ARE standing

up to one of the biggest petrol

companies in the world as it tries

to expand its Edgeware site.

BP Oil New Zealand owns BP

Edgeware and has applied for a

resource consent to expand its site

at the corner of Edgeware Rd and

Cranford St, adding another four

pumps and 22 more car parks.

To do so, it has bought two

properties north of the site to

expand into.

But residents on Cornwall St

are fuming at the proposal, saying

they weren’t consulted and it will

ruin the area.

One of opponents, Rob Hull,

said it was not what the area

needed and what the Edgeware

Village Master Plan set out to

achieve.

“Our main concern is that it is

completely counter to the district

plan and what was envisaged for

the future of the Edgeware village,”

he said.

The master plan aims to restore

the area as a thriving shopping

centre and community hub.

Another nearby resident,

Monique Posthuma, said all

they can do to battle a “big commercial

corporate entity” was to

“jump up and down”.

“Our biggest concern is it is

going into a residential area. It’s

going away from the plan. What

can we do?” she said.

BP Oil communications and

external affairs manager Shelley

Brady said the demand for service

in the area had increased.

She said improvements

needed to be made to keep up

with that demand and make sure

congestion does not become a

common problem.

“We have been following the

council approval process and

it’s ultimately their decision as

to what will and won’t be approved,”

she said.

City council head of resource

consents John Higgins said the

Edgeware master plan does not

cover the site where the expansion

is proposed.

“It’s important to note that a

master plan does not have the

same relevance when making

notification decisions,” he said.

“This is because the notification

decision focuses on adverse

effects, rather than the broader

planning assessment that is

required when a decision is being

made whether to grant the application

“Dangerous” intersection

• By Andrew King

AN intersection labelled as

“dangerous” by the community

will not be considered for an

upgrade, according to a recent

city council report.

Parents tell their children to

avoid the Breens, Gardiners

and Harewood rds intersection,

and nearby Breens Intermediate

regularly reminds pupils about

the risks of crossing it.

The Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board requested

city council staff investigate the

intersection and report back to

it with solutions.

Staff reported back to the

board saying: “The multi-laned,

stop controlled intersection

does create some difficulties

for pedestrians trying to cross

Harewood Rd immediately at

the intersection, and there are

no cyclist facilities.

“However, there have been

no reported pedestrian or

cyclist crashes in the last

10 years. There are no current

plans for upgrading the intersection.”

More than 14,000 vehicles

pass through the intersection

every day.

Statistics released by the New

Zealand Transport Agency

NO UPGRADE: City council staff have recommended that a Harewood intersection does not

need to be upgraded.

show between 2011 and 2015

there were seven minor crashes

and four non-injury crashes at

the intersection.

There were no fatal or serious

injury crashes reported.

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board deputy chairman Aaron

Keown said the crash statistics

cannot be the determining factor

as to whether an intersection

is deemed dangerous.

“Under this current council,

we will need a fatality to trigger

an action, and that in my book

is unacceptable,” he said.

Mr Keown said an upgrade is

needed to put the residents and

parents minds at ease.

“It doesn’t take a rocket

scientist to work out that this

intersection will have a fatality

soon and we cannot wait for it

to happen,” he said.

The Fendalton-Waimairi

Community Board received the

report this week and deputy

chairman David Cartwright

said he will be asking some

“pretty big” questions around

what solutions city council

traffic staff can come up with.

In Brief

MERIVALE PROJECT

The Stronger Christchurch

Infrastructure Rebuild Team

has launched a six-month

project in Merivale to repair a

large wastewater pipe. SCIRT

started work yesterday at the

western end of Aikmans Rd

near Elmwood Normal School.

The work will continue for

about six weeks. The western

half of Aikmans Rd will

be open to one-way going

east towards Papanui Rd.

Commuters going west down

Aikmans will be detoured into

Akela St, Cox St, Sterling St

and Office Rd. This is the first

of the wastewater pipe’s four

repair stages.

OPTIONS DISCUSSED

The Shirley-Papanui

Community Board will meet

tomorrow to discuss a proposal

to make changes to Blighs Rd,

from Papanui Rd to Watford

St, to solve congestion and

safety issues. City council

staff provided the board with

two options. Option one is

to do nothing. Option two

is to remove parking along

the north side of Blighs Rd

from 181 Blighs Rd to the

intersection with Papanui Rd,

remove part of the kerb and

move the cycle lane further to

the left near the kerbside.

The role of community boards

Fendalton-

Waimairi

Community Board

deputy chairman

David Cartwright

writes this week’s

Soap Box about the role a

community board plays in

society and his time in local

body politics over the past

three years.

As we approach the local body

elections, I find myself having

many interesting and sometimes

challenging conversations with

friends, colleagues, and people

in the community regarding

the process and purpose of

community boards.

As with anything, the opinions

and level of understanding

around the role of community

boards covers the entire spectrum

from those who see just another

pointless layer of bureaucracy, to

those who are very supportive and

really value the community level

advocacy and decision-making the

boards can provide.

Often the strongest supporters

are those who have had some

kind of contact with the board,

perhaps through being involved

with a deputation, receiving a

grant for a community event,

or communicating with board

members regarding improvements

to local facilities or infrastructure.

At the heart of it, the success and

relevance of a community board

can be measured on its ability to

communicate with and advocate

for their community – that is our

purpose.

As I come to the end of my

second term on the Fendalton-

Waimairi Community Board, the

range of issues and events we are

involved in continues to excite and

motivate me.

The small things really do make

a difference when it comes to

improving wellbeing, safety, and

engagement at a community level.

Some of the highlights of

this term has been delivering

the new Burnside Park

fitness track, progressing the

replacement Bishopdale Library,

addressing car parking demands

at Jellie Park, and granting funds

to the talented youth of our ward

to attend local and international

sporting and cultural events.

Recently the board has heard

deputations on the intersection of

Gardiners and Harewood Rds and

looked at various short and longterm

solutions to address the ever

increasing traffic on our roads.

Other deputations have covered

issues such as the drying up of

our rivers and streams, increasing

quarrying and land use issues, and

the removal of problem trees on

health or safety grounds.

Of course, not all issues can

be solved at a community board

level, but board members can

elevate any issue with council staff,

request additional information,

and work to find an agreeable

outcome.

All of this means one of the

most important attributes of

an effective board member is

the ability to really listen and

communicate with residents, other

board members, city councillors

and city council staff.

So when you come to complete

your voting papers in October,

take the time to find out more

about the candidates, think about

the issues that matter to you

and your neighbours, and take a

pro-active approach to deciding

who will be your voice in the

community.

the issues the Fendalton-

Waimairi Community Board

should be focusing on? Share

A reader responds to a recent article about a lack of

parking at the Northlands Shopping Centre, forcing

shoppers and staff to park in the surrounding streets of

Papanui, which is creating traffic issues.

P Stuart, Papanui

I would just like to add my

comments to your article about

Kathleen Crisley’s concerns

about all-day parking in the

side streets of Papanui. I agree

with all she has said. I would

like to add that Mary St residents

also suffer because the

street is so narrow. It is very

dangerous as far as traffic is

concerned. We have cars coming

from St Albans heading

north and cars taking shortcuts

off Papanui Rd through

the side streets. Now think

of the residents who want to

get out of their driveways at

peak times, which is almost

anytime. It is daunting to avoid

the traffic and to do a turn to

go either way as cars on the

opposite side are parked, with

4WD vehicles blocking your

exit view. If your property is

two houses away from the side

streets, you have to be aware of

them and it is all quite scary.

When we were notified twohour

parking was going to be

introduced, and were asked to

give views, I did so quite constructively.

Everything I suggested

went the complete opposite

direction. As a ratepayer

on this property for 56 years, I

object to my visitors having to

walk a distance because there

are no parks available close to

my home. I object to the fear

I have of being involved in a

crash. The school holidays and

Christmas are approaching so

the nightmare continues.

Apples

From the Garden of Eden to Abbey Road and Silicon

Valley, apples have been an enduring motif for our

cultural journey.

Like William Tell and Sir Isaac Newton before him,

Ashley Smith, in this show, uses apples to his own

ends.

Some samples from this tasty crop may very well

keep the doctor away - but, then again, there could

be something decidedly sinister under the skin of

that rosy red apple being offered.

Artist, Ashley Smith escaped into the wilds of

coastal North Canterbury over 30yrs ago and still

finds fascination in its rural myths and practices.

Canterbury’s often crazy weather patterns also

continue to influence his paintings ( and mental

juices).

Ashley’s subjects are rendered in a variety of styles

– many honed during extensive global meanderings.

During these he has worked for publishers in

Australia, England and America, studied batik in

Indonesia, been a member of the Stuttgard Art

Society and met his future wife in the 602 Club,

Madison Wisconsin!

In Brief

$2M RESTORATION

The historic Deans’ farm

buildings on the Christchurch

Boys’ High School site will be

repaired at a cost of more than

$2 million. The school will run

a major community fundraising

campaign after its insurance

payout fell $1 million short of

the restoration cost. The old

buildings are one of the last

remnants of the Deans’ family

farm. The buildings were badly

damaged in the February 22,

2011 earthquake.

To date, none of the offers had

been accepted by the property

owners.

PARTNERSHIP: Rangi Ruru Girls’ School is teaming up with Crimson Consulting

which will be the first partnership of its kind between a school and a

commercial enterprise in New Zealand.

School forms partnership

RANGI RURU Girls’

School is teaming up with a

21-year-old entrepreneur’s

company to help students

into tertiary education.

Crimson Consulting,

the company set up by

then 18-year-old Jamie

Beaton, will be sending one

of its tutors to Rangi as a

full-time “career pathway

strategist”.

The young Harvard

graduate’s business was

valued at $60 million

earlier this year after

acquiring numerous

smaller educational

consultancies.

Mr Beaton started the

company in 2013 with his

girlfriend Shandre Kushor,

also 18 at the time, and

soon attracted investment

from US billionaires.

His share of the education

consultancy is now

worth $40.5 million.

Mr Beaton’s fellow

Harvard graduate Wen Qiu

will be joining the school as

part of a new partnership

between the college and the

company.

Rangi Ruru principal Dr

Sandra Hastie says this collaboration

is about assisting

students with career plans

and “connecting them with

information”.

It is the first partnership

of its kind between a school

and a commercial enterprise

in New Zealand.

Crimson Consulting is

best known for its mentoring

programmes aimed at

young people wishing to go

Wine auction for chapel

ST ANDREW’S College will

auction off a former student’s

wine to raise money to help

build its new centennial

chapel.

A limited edition range of

China Girl pinot noir, produced

by Crown Range Cellar

in Queenstown, will go under

the hammer on Thursday at

Strowan House.

Crown Range Cellar chief

executive Jing Song, 29, said

the China Girl collection is

derived from grapes that were

hand-picked from a piece of

land known as Chinaman’s

Terrace, on Bendigo Hill,

Otago.

The grapes came from the

site of an early Chinese settlement.

“Since coming here from

China as a 12-year-old, I have

spent most of my life in the

Central Otago region and we

crafted China Girl pinot noir

as a testament to the historical

mining region and the many

Chinese who lived here, often

under harsh conditions, in

those times,” Ms Song said.

She said the auction is a way

of giving something back to

the school which set her on

course for a successful business

career as a wine producer

and entrepreneur.

Auction items on the evening

include four sets of six

750ml bottles of China Girl

pinot noir and six individually

cased, 1.5-litre magnums of

China Girl pinot noir. There’s

also one of only six limited

edition, nine-litre China Girl

pinot noir bottles, handlabelled

and signed by Sir

Michael Hill, Prime Minister

John Key, Mayor Lianne Dalziel

and St Andrew’s principal

Christine Leighton.

Get in touch with the school

for ticket information.

Old timber saves historic bridge

RECLAIMED Australian

hardwood timber is

breathing new life into one of

Christchurch’s oldest bridges.

Helmores Lane Bridge, the

city’s only surviving 19th-century

timber bridge, will live

longer with the help of timber

salvaged from two Waitaki

River bridges built in 1881.

Repairs will take about five

months before the bridge can

be opened to pedestrians and

cyclists.

Thirty bridge piles, made

of the Australian hardwood,

Jarrah, were brought from the

Waitaki District Council for

the cost of a donation.

It was a lot less expensive

than importing new hardwood

from Australia for the

earthquake repairs.

Using re-claimed timber fits

the conservation practice of

sourcing material as close as

possible to the original for the

repair and restoration of heritage

structures.

Helmores Lane Bridge is

listed with Heritage New Zealand

and is the only remaining

example of a propped-beam

timber bridge in Christchurch.

While the bridge has been

repaired and widened, about

80 per cent of the original timber

executive general manager Ian

Campbell said it was a challenging

project.

“You are trying to protect

an original structure and its

character, while providing the

protection of a modern structure,”

Mr Campbell said.

The original 17-metre long

bridge now requires new access

ways which will be about

five metres long at each end.

Former CBHS

student wins

US study award

• By Andrew King

A FORMER Christchurch Boys’

High School student has won

an award that will allow him

to travel to the United States to

continue his studies.

Ethan Thomson won a

Fulbright Science and Innovation

Graduate Award which

has opened a door for him to

research ground motion simulation

at Stanford University in

California.

He is currently studying towards

a PhD in earthquake engineering

at Canterbury University.

The awards are for promising

New Zealand graduate students

to undertake postgraduate study

or research in US institutions in

fields targeted to support growth

and innovation in New Zealand.

Ten awards were granted this

year, in partnership with the science

and innovation group of the

Ministry of Business, Innovation

and Employment.

Stanford University, located between

San Francisco and San Jose

in the heart of California’s Silicon

FULBRIGHT WINNER:

Ethan Thomson received

one of 10 awards that allows

New Zealander’s to head

overseas to further their

studies. ​

Valley, is one of the world’s

leading teaching and research

universities.

Since its opening in 1891,

Stanford has been dedicated

to finding solutions to big

challenges and to preparing

students for leadership in a

complex world.

Quiz trophy returns to Burnside

BURNSIDE HIGH School

classical studies students have

won the Logie Cup for the

second year in a row.

The Logie Cup is a classical

studies quiz that has been

running since 1999 and

competed in by high school

students.

Charlotte Gillingham, Sachin

Sakthivel, Sean Ward and Evan

Wills made up the Burnside

team who competed and beat

secondary schools from all

around the South Island.

The questions require general

classics knowledge.

Some are easy, others are

challenging, but usually a team

of four can come up with an

answer.

Burnside classics head of

department Gina Fernandez

said she was extremely proud of

her students winning the cup

for the second year in a row.

“They worked so well together.

Winning it for the second year

in a row is a huge achievement

also, they have done so well,”

she said.

The questions are based off

what has been taught throughout

the year in their classes,

Burnside was studying Alexander

the Great and his conquest

of the Persian Empire.

Challenging children

JUNIOR PUPILS at Wairakei

School participate once a week

in a multi-level sports

programme catering for different

needs through a variety of

activities.

While the year 5 and 6 pupils

head off for their inter-school

winter sports tournament on

Friday afternoons, the year 1 to

4 pupils get outside and take on

many different challenges.

Generally, the year 1 children

participate in the school’s

perceptual motor programme,

which teaches them some of the

most basic elements of sport.

The others are mixed into

different groups and have skillbased

lessons and other physical

activity to encourage wellness.

Principal Shane Buckner said

it is so great seeing the older

children supporting the younger

ones.

“It is absolutely brilliant to

have the parents come along and

support the teachers by providing

extra supervision and assistance,”

he said.

Getting to grips with gym gear

BOUNCING ON trampolines

and learning forward rolls

were just two of the activities

Cotswold School pupils got into

at the Christchurch School of

Gymnastics.

The junior school pupils put

the skills they have been learning

at school into practice and after

a jazzy warm up, pupils were

separated into different stations

around the gym.

They used the big trampolines,

the rings and bars, the beams, and

the forward roll mats.

Eight-year-old Lewis Ashby said

it was great to learn new things.

“We learnt new things on the

beam like backwards dips, bunny

hops and even ribbon throws,” he

said.

Seven-year-old Jayden White

said he enjoyed flipping around

the bar.

A highlight for the year 3

pupils was watching a one of

the instructors demonstrate

his fancy flips on one of the big

trampolines.

Even some of the teachers gave

it a go – showing the kids their

attempts at trampolining too.

TALENT: Dian Taganas played the piano and sung for her entry.

FANCY FEET: Seyara de Silva performed a dance for

St Joseph’s School’s annual talent

quest showcased some of the

pupils’ best acts and thrilled the

audience. All pupils from years

1-8 had the opportunity to enter

the talent quest. There was a

preliminary round held to choose

the acts worthy of being included

in the finals. On the night, there

was singing, dancing, musical acts

and pupils dressed up as their

favourite Star Wars characters.

It is organised and run by senior

students who were also involved in

the judging. Principal Mark Gregory

said it was a great event for the

school. “A gold coin donation from

the audience ensured funds raised

didn’t slow entrants as they put

on their best fancy dress and

lined up to compete in the UC

The 5km event involved more

than 1000 students and teachers

from 35 schools all across

Christchurch, and from as far

afield as Mt Hutt, Timaru and

Cheviot.

Papanui High School had success

in the best dressed category

and the non-competitive short

team boys’ category.

It was started after the

February 22, 2011, earthquakes

to give people a chance to think

about something different, if

only for the duration of the

course.

Although the temperature

stayed below 10 deg C, the day

was full of excitement and energy,

and spectacular costumes

worn by the runners.

Sport Canterbury event

manager Lucy Ryan said this

year will be remembered for the

calibre of costumes, which are

known for getting “better and

better each year.”

The event has grown from its

start of 200 entries to more than

1000 people lining up to have a

go. •More sport page 18

Isabella Garbett

Giving young people a voice

St Andrew’s College student Isabella Garbett, 17, was

recognised at the Canterbury Youth Awards for helping give

young people a voice. She spoke to Georgia O’Connor-

Harding about engaging with the youth of the city, her views

on gender inequality and the time she spends feeding the

homeless every Sunday.

How does it feel to have

been awarded the Advocate

Inclusion and Diversity Award

at the Canterbury Youth

Awards last week?

I was quite surprised. Aside

from that, I am so incredibly

humbled because the people I

was up against do some incredible

things. So good, but at the

same time I wish everyone could

be recognised for the awesome

things they have done.

This award is about ensuring

young people have a voice.

Could you tell me about some

of the things you do to ensure

this happens in the city?

Primarily what I do outside of

school is volunteer for New Zealand

Red Cross project, Bounce.

It came about after the earthquake

and it is centred around

creating a space for young people

to talk about well-being and

gearing them up with some tips

to deal with tough times. It is

run by young people for young

people. I came in when they were

starting to re-brand. It is about

finding ways to engage people. A

lot of people don’t want to read a

text book. It’s targeted at people

aged 12-24. In school, I am also

the head of community service,

the sustainability council, the

student council and head of

debating.

But that’s not all you are doing.

Are you an advocate for

women’s rights as well?

Most things I do with a feminist

lens. There is a real trend

with year 9-11 students where

they are quite apathetic to a lot of

women’s issues. (Men and women)

might be equal in the eyes of

the law, but we are not equal in

the eyes of society. It is important

to me when that younger

generation comes through that

they don’t forget about where we

have come from and we have a

good appreciation of women and

their places in society. But feminism

isn’t just about women – it

affects men, too.

What did you think of the

whole Hornby High School

skirt debacle last week?

That is just another classic

example of ridiculous doublestandards.

Because when you

tell girls that they need to wear

longer skirts because they are

distracting male teachers or male

students, you are telling a boy

he is more entitled to education

than a girl is – and that is just not

the case. A lot of the time people

don’t think about what they are

saying and how it translates. I

know the school’s response was

that it was not what they were

quite trying to say, but as soon as

you start saying those messages

it is really harmful.

Is there inequality in the city?

Yes, it is not horrific, but New

Zealand on a whole has quite

an interesting culture in terms

of gender inequality. Even with

young boys and the messages

we give them – that they have

got to be strong, don’t cry – that

is harmful. It is about ensuring

both genders are given equal

opportunity. We have horrendous

domestic violence, rape,

sexual violence. We have got bad

suicide stats in New Zealand as

a whole.

And you have made a major

contribution to the homeless?

Our school has a relationship

with this taxi driver called

Daniel, who runs a feeding the

homeless thing every Sunday at

Latimer Square. I started doing

that in year 10. I like to give back

when I can. Over time I have

built up some cool relationships

HIGH ACHIEVER: Isabella Garbett was recently recognised at the Canterbury Youth Awards.

with the people (involved).

Being able to understand why

the homeless are where they

are, and what is going on in

their lives, is like building a

friendship.

Tell me about some of the

most interesting people you

have met?

I met someone the other day

who has been out of prison for

five years. He is now working

with more recently released

prisoners to help them deal with

getting out of prison. There was

another guy, I’m not sure what

his background was, but he

sleeps on the street. He is one of

the nicest people I have ever met.

He keeps the order (in Latimer

Square), makes sure everyone

stands in a line and the kids get

fed first. He is the last to come

up and that is really humbling

to see.

What is it like seeing people

your own age and even younger

in that situation?

It breaks my heart. I do the

things I do because I have an

education and opportunity,

which means I will be able to go

somewhere. It is people like that

who keep me in check.

You are in your last year of

school. What do you want to do

next year?

I want to go to Victoria University

of Wellington. I want

to do a law degree and major

in gender studies and history and

do a Bachelor of Arts.

What is your big dream?

I want to end up running an

aid organisation. I want to focus

on women’s issues. I would love

to do something in first-world

countries in the lower-social

economic areas. Then, after that,

I want to go to Africa. I have got

a teacher who taught in Uganda.

I would love to do something

like that. It is going to be a lot

of work, but hopefully I am in a

situation raising the awareness of

people who are in the positions

of power. Also enabling those

who aren’t in power to get to

where they want to be.

Do you have any other

hobbies in your spare time?

I play four instruments and

I sing. Violin, piano, guitar

and viola. I love playing in the

school orchestra. Aside from

that, I hang out with my friends.

I would not be anywhere near

where I am today if it was not

for my friends and family. I am

really lucky to have people who

challenge me to think more

critically. I have two younger

brothers and my grandmother

also lives with us. I love them

dearly.

Research Supports

Eye Health

NutritioNal researchers have

discovered a range of nutrients that are

essential for eye health. some of the most

essential nutrients that have been shown to

protect and even improve eye function are:

selenium, is a trace mineral that is low

in N.Z. soils and therefore in many of our

foods. researchers believe selenium may

help prevent cataracts, macular degeneration

(the leading cause of impaired vision in older

people) and may also improve dry eyes and

general eye health.

Zinc is a mineral that a large percentage

of the population are low in. Zinc has been

shown to help protect the eyes from the

damaging effects of light as well as slow

vision loss due to macular degeneration.

Vitamin c, citrus Bioflavonoids, Betacarotene

(Pro-vitamin a) and copper have

potent antioxidant ability and help protect

the eyes from damage

lutein and Zeaxanthin are amazing

nutrients that have been shown in landmark

research to not only provide potent eye

protection but may even help reverse

some of the signs of age-related macular

degeneration (aMD).

Bilberry and Blackcurrant, high in potent

antioxidants may help protect the lens and

retina from damage and reduce the risk

of cataracts. They also may help improve

blood supply to the eye, strengthen the small

capillaries of the eye and may help improve

night vision, may alleviate many eye ailments

including eye fatigue that may be caused by

reading, driving and computers.

eyebright may help normalise eye pressure

and reduce eye allergies.

taurine is an amino acid that is essential

for correct eye function. it may also have a

detoxifying affect on the eye.

Vitamin B2 may help alleviate eye fatigue,

bloodshot eyes and maintain good vision.

Yumberry is the latest in eye protection.

it provides many nutrients, is rich in

oligomeric proanthocyanidins (oPc’s) that

are potent antioxidants that may protect

eyesight.

These nutrients taken in a therapeutic

amount should provide comprehensive eye

protection, may slow and possibly even help

reverse eye damage that could lead to loss

of vision. all these nutrients are available

in an economical one a day easy to swallow

capsule.

Co-Q10 Reduces all causes

of Mortality by 50%

researchers Were amazed with the

results of how beneficial a natural nutrient

coenzyme- Q10 (coQ10) is to the human

body. co-Q10 is a natural enzyme in

the body’s cells that is essential for cell

function, energy and survival. The heart,

liver, Kidneys and Pancreas require large

amounts of co-Q10 to function well.

in a recent multi country double blind

trial on the possible benefits of coQ10 to

protect against heart failure, 420 patients

with severe heart failure were given

coQ10 or a placebo and then followed for

2 years. it was found to the amazement of

the co-Q10 had a 50% reduction in an

adverse cardiovascular event or death

compared to the placebo patients. Not

only this but the patients on the coQ10

had a 50% reduction in death not only

from cardiovascular events but from all

causes.

according to lead study author

Professor Mortensen this study is the first

in over a decade to show a natural nutrient

can reduce heart failure mortality and

coQ10 should be added as a standard

treatment for anyone with cardiovascular

complaints. it is known that coQ10 levels

decrease in the heart muscle of patients

with heart failure as severity worsens.

statin drugs are used to treat many

patients with cardiovascular problems

but these drugs also reduce coQ10

levels further in the body. symptoms

of low coQ10 in the body can be low

energy and endurance, muscle pain,

poor memory, concentration and poor

heart function or heart failure.

coQ10 levels are known to decrease

as we age and many researchers

believe keeping our levels up of this

vital nutrient may help prevent many

chronic diseases including cancer.

co-Q10 is available as a natural

supplement to support good health.

Co-Q10 Vital for Good Health

Co-Q10 is a nutrient that is absolutely vital to every cell to perform its function & live. It is

essential for energy production, muscle function & required in sufficient amounts for the

heart to keep beating. A deficiency will affect all organs & sufficient Co-Q10 is considered an

important factor in reducing the chances of chronic disease & reduced life expectancy. Co-

Q10 is a fat soluble nutrient & its absorption is enhanced when it is in a base of fatty acids.

This formula contains 150mg of naturally fermented Co-Q10 in a special blend of fatty acids

(Fish, Flaxseed & EP Oils) to enhance the absorption.

Co-Q10 Supports:

Winter Warmer - Hot tips

for cold weather

Does that nip in the air make it hard

to get moving? What better way to warm

yourself than getting the blood pumping to

warm up on the inside.

The less active we are, the more we feel the

cold. But it’s easy to warm hands and feet by

working muscles and joints while staying dry

and warm in front of tV.

The aircycle exerciser is an indoor warmer

which gets your circulation going in no time.

The movement is a gentle awakening for

sleepy muscles and joints, warms and loosens

them to ease them into action.

tight, cold muscles mean decreased

mobility and are more prone to injury.

imagine putting a rubber band in the freezer

and then trying to stretch it over a large box.

it snaps. But warm the rubber band slowly

and it will stretch to take the force of your

pull. That band is like your muscles in winter.

it is unnecessary to use the aircycle for

lengthy periods. short, frequent spells

throughout the day and evening are most

effective. a few minutes while sitting with

a coffee or chatting on the phone will keep

blood circulating and feet and hands warm.

a good warm up keeps the body running

like a well oiled machine. Mrs spier wrote, “i

have arthritis and joint problems. When i’ve

been using the aircycle i feel as though i’ve

had a good lube. My joints are more flexible

and i can garden more easily.”

to make their homes comfortable, warm and

healthy for their families throughout winter.

rISINg DAMP is an issue that affects many of

our older properties which suffer from poor, or

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,

many people have relocated to homes that

suffer from rising damp which can be associated

with health problems. Independent tests have

shown that up to 40 litres of water can rise from

the ground and enter a house every day, leading

to mildew, mould, condensation and musty

smells. Moulds can produce various allergic

reactions and the frail, elderly and very young are

especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a locally

owned and operated firm. The team understands

the problems caused by rising damp and are

there to help. They will come to your damp home

and pump a lightweight, flowable foam concrete

under your timber floored home. Specially

adapted for our New Zealand conditions and

applications it provides a layer of protection

against rising moisture. An unexpected benefit

that the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete

have noticed recently, is that many owners

of properties which had underfloor foam

concrete installed, reported that it also provided

protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

HOME & HEATING

At last an energy saving device that

gives your household direct energy

savings on your hot water power bills.

our ProVeN technology helps customers

manage their hot water heating by saving

money without impacting on their hot

water availability. Introducing our breakthrough

technology, the iSmart Hot Water

Controller which can be easily retrofitted

to any hot water cylinder by a qualified

electrician, so no need to replace your hot

water cylinder. More sophisticated than a

timer, the iSmart Controller comes with an

LCD touch screen so you can programme

when you heat up your hot water, plans

for period of high use, can be boosted

when you’ve got unexpected demand and

minimise power use when away on holiday.

How Does it Work?

• easy to use LCD display touch screen

• you can program the times when you

want the hot water available

• Calculates if there is enough hot

water and only heats up when required.

• easily adjust the savings you want to

make

• Boost Mode Function for when those

unexpected guests turn up

• Holiday mode – your hot water can be

safely turned off while you are away.

• Legionella Protection – once a week

automatically gets up to 60deg’s to kill

any legionella bacteria.

smooth-air products

to eNSure the quality of your air, contact

the experts. Smooth-Air Products can calculate

the required air exchange for your building

requirement. Smooth-Air offers a wide range of

ventilation equipment, from air vents to ducting

for fans, for both the commercial and domestic

markets. They have an extensive range of fans

and ventilation components in-store but they

can also provide innovative solutions tailored to

differing requirements.

VeNtILAtIoN

This includes both the exchange of air to the

outside as well as circulation of air within the

building. It is one of the most important factors

for maintaining acceptable indoor air quality in

buildings.

Filtered air supply for summer and filtered

and warmed air in winter creates a healthy

environment in which to live and work. In case

of poor or insufficient air intake from outside,

the oxygen content decreases, humidity and

dustiness levels increase. If exhaust ventilation

is not provided or it is not effective, polluted air,

smells, humidity and harmful substances are not

removed.

Low oxygen with high carbon dioxide causes

stuffiness in the room and occupants can feel

drowsy. Invisible harmful substances like a

high content of dust and tobacco smoke are

harmful and can cause various diseases. even

bad smells can cause discomfort or irritate the

nervous system. In summer, it’s easy to open

windows for cross ventilation, however as winter

approaches, we start to shut up out houses to

trap in the heat and as a result, air quality can

decline.

It is therefore very important to ensure good

air quality indoors through adequate ventilation.

Pasifika engineer

reboots Plan A

Pasifika students are slowly

gravitating towards engineering. Third year

Bachelor of engineering technology student

at ara institute of technology, Richard Ofa,

urges them to think long term.

Richard is motivated. He has worked at a

semi-skilled level. after graduating from an

it qualification at ara (then CPit), he took

a temporary job as a CnC machine operator

at skOPe. The money was good at the time,

but several years later he was still in the same

position.

Richard took stock and realised he wanted

to be an engineer, designing the products

that he had been assembling at skOPe. He

needed an engineering qualification.

The ara three year engineering degree

offered evening classes, which allowed

Richard to continue working. “i have

a responsibility to my family and the

community, so not working isn’t an option,”

he says.

Richard negotiated to work part time at

skOPe and launched into his engineering

studies. “Coming back to study, working with

computers, doing 3d modelling, it’s what i

have always wanted to do.

“i love problem solving, being creative and

coming up with new ideas. for my third year

project, skOPe gave me a project to work

on. it’s a sliding door design, a new design. i

am quietly confident it will work out.”

The degree will certainly open doors for

Richard. “i am hoping to get a full time

design job with skOPe when i graduate.

My long term plan is project management

– i will probably come back and do some

project management papers at ara in five to

10 years’ time when i have some experience.

“My family are happy, in that island

way, now they can see the value of the

qualification.

Meanwhile, Richard is seeing more

Pasifika students in engineering. “The first

year i was the only fulltime Pasifika student,

but numbers have increased in the last

two years, including the number of female

Pasifika engineering students.

“The biggest challenge is managing the

workload of studying and working. i work

three days a week and study full time, so i

look forward to a sleep-in on the weekend,”

he says.

Heavyweight

luncheon

HEAVYWEIGHT

champion boxer Joseph

Parker and trainer Kevin

Barry are special guests at a

lunch taking place at

Addington Raceway &

Events Centre on Friday, 15

July 2016.

Kevin Barry, a light

heavyweight boxing silver

medallist at the 1984

Olympics, took on Joseph

Parker's training after being

headhunted by Duco Events

three years ago. Kevin quickly became a mentor, father figure and friend to the then

“young, shy quiet boy”.

This is your chance to listen to Kevin Barry and ask questions of IBF World

Heavyweight Mandatory Challenger Joseph Parker. Fresh off his gruelling 12 round win

against Frenchman Carlos Takam, Parker is coming to Christchurch to fight Australian

Solomon Haumono in preparation for his IBF World Title fight and in doing so, will put

his IBF Title shot on the line.

Lunch includes two courses and beverages with master of ceremony Gary

McCormick. Pre-lunch drinks are from 11.30am with lunch served at 12noon.

To secure your table call Joanne McMaster now on 339 7908 as seats are limited.
