Heavy vehicle concerns

for Worsleys Rd residents

• By Noah Graham

WORSLEYS RD residents are

concerned their thoroughfare will

be left to deteriorate because of

a large number of heavy vehicles

expected to travel on the road in the

coming months.

Timber Group Ltd has contracted

two companies to log about 243ha

of trees from the Christchurch Adventure

Park, which were damaged

in the Port Hills

fires.

During the four

to five-month

operation, between

10-16 trucks are

expected to drive

up and down

Rik Tindall

Worsleys Rd daily,

between 7am and

6pm.

Worsleys Rd residents are worried

city council will not monitor

the roads properly and allow them

to deteriorate underneath the immense

loads, Cashmere Residents

Association Rik Tindall said.

Residents understood the

logging needed to be done but were

concerned city council would not

keep the road up to a high enough

standard, as they often neglected

repairing the road, Mr Tindall said.

•Turn to page 4

CONCERNS: About 10 to 16 log trucks will use Cracroft roads daily for the next four to five months and residents are worried city

council will not properly maintain them.

IT’S FRUSTRATING to have

heavy trucks rolling up and down

your street – and today on page 1

we reveal the annoyance of some

people in Worsleys Rd.

They have heavy trucks removing

logs from the fire-damaged

Christchurch Adventure Park putting

pressure on their road.

But that unfortunately is the

price people have to pay when

there is a natural disaster.

The logs have to come out and

Worsleys Rd is pretty much the

only route in and out of the adventure

park.

You just got to put up with it.

Youth crime focus in the east

In Brief

• By Andrew King

YOUTH CRIME and truancy

are the main focus of a police

operation in Linwood and other

eastern suburbs.

Operation Yeast, shortened

from youth in the east, will

target the worst youth offenders

in an area police have called the

eastern corridor.

The eastern corridor runs

from New Brighton, through

Linwood, to the central city bus

exchange.

“It is about reducing

opportunities for identified

youth offenders from

committing more offences

through proven methods,”

Senior Sergeant Stephan

McDaniel said.

The methods being used are

ensuring all matters relating to

youth are dealt with in a timely

manner, including youth who

have been reported missing,

truancy sweeps in malls,

libraries and bus terminals, and

visiting truants at home.

He said police are working

with schools in the eastern

suburbs and Te Ora Hou

Ōtautahi, which provides

a student attendance

support service to state and

state-integrated schools in

Canterbury.

YOUTH CRIME: Senior Sergeant Stephan McDaniel said for our children to have a future they

need an education.

PHOTO GEOFF SLOAN

Te Ora Hou is a network

of faith-based youth and

community development

organisations working with

young people, their families and

communities across the country.

“For our children to have a

future they need an education,”

said Senior Sergeant McDaniel.

Linwood College principal

Richard Edmundson said

anything that allows service

agencies to work together and

keep youth in school, developing

a pathway to success, needs to be

encouraged.

“There is always a family which

is harder to reach in terms of

education, it’s not that they don’t

want their kids to do well,” he

said.

“But it is our responsibility to

make sure they [students] can see

how they can succeed.”

CHURCH RENOVATION

Renovations on the Opawa

Baptist Church are expected

to be completed at the end

of July. Youth pastor for the

church, Andrew Wilson, said

the church is looking forward

to the completed renovations

and are trying to have some

creative ideas for their new

mezzanine floor.

ROAD CLOSURES

Trench digging for ultra-fast

Broadband installation will

see some Cashmere roads

closed for more than a month.

Overdale Drive, Heaton

Rhodes Pl and Sulby Rd, as

well as the section of Dyers

Pass Rd that connects them,

will be closed until June

10. Whareora Tce will be

closed until May 31 although

residents will have access at all

times.

CONSTITUTION SIGNING

The Hoon Hay Community

Association is signing

its constitution tonight.

Chairwoman Suzie Sauer said

once the constitution is signed,

they could start putting plans

in place to take over the lease

Work starts

on Woolston

urban forest

• By Noah Graham

Tuesday May 16 2017

WOOLSTON RESIDENTS will

get their urban forest this year.

Work to transform the Linwood

College’s lower fields into

a forested wetland began last

month and is expected to be

completed by September, a city

council spokeswoman said.

City council is buying the

fields, which have not been used

by the school since the February

22, 2011, earthquake, from the

Ministry of Education and will

be part of the Bell’s Creek flood

mitigation scheme.

Thousands of native flora will

be planted on the 2.7ha site which

will act as a storage basin, reducing

flooding in the surrounding

area and is expected to attract

native birds back to the Woolston

area.

Woolston Community Centre

co-ordinator Carol Brown said it

was great news to hear the project

will be completed this year.

“I hope it will encourage people

to go out and go for walks and

meet their neighbours.”

She said a lot of people on the

east side of the city often felt forgotten

but projects like the urban

forest helped remedy it.

Log truck concerns for Worsleys Rd residents

•From page 1

“Worsleys Rd is not in good

condition. It’s narrow, windy

and hilly – as well as damaged in

some places.”

Cracroft Residents Association

chairman and Worsleys Rd resident

John Cousins said he feels

for the residents living near the

Adventure Park.

He too was worried city council

would not look after the road

properly and was concerned

the trucks would cause delays

at the controversial Worsleys,

Cashmere and Hoon Hay Rds

intersection.

Latest Christchurch news at www.

He said traffic was bad at the

intersection and the number of

logging trucks using it each day

was going to cause more delays.

A Worsleys Rd resident, who

did not want to be named, said

they could understand why some

residents were worried city council

would not properly maintain

the road.

However, she said there was

not much that could be done

to change it and as long as city

council fixed the road after the

logging had been completed, she

had no problems with the trucks.

Christchurch Adventure Park

.kiwi

spokeswoman Anne Newman

said she had spoken to residents

and there were concerns over

truck movements along Worsleys

Rd.

She said the logging companies

were imposing a 20km/h

to 30km/h speed limit on their

drivers and would ensure there

is only one logging truck on the

road at any given time.

City councillor Phil Clearwater

said there will no doubt

be some wear and tear that will

require repair and the road

would need monitoring – which

he believed city council would.

GIFT TO MOTHER NATURE: The

TimberNook Christchurch Going Wild

kids were some of the 720 volunteers

who braved cold weather and helped

clean up the Heathcote River and

Avon-Heathcote Estuary on Saturday

as part of the annual Mother of All

Clean Ups. During the day about 725

bags of rubbish were collected along

with 250 large loose items which varied

from mattresses, televisions to even an

unopened bottle of champagne. ​

City council road maintenance

manager Mark Pinner said

Worsleys Rd is a public road and

therefore is able to carry normal

(class 1) heavy vehicles such as

the log trucks.

He said the road was a relatively

low volume road apart from

the increase in traffic when the

Adventure Park was opened.

“We will continue to monitor,

as we do for all roads, and will

undertake repairs, to maintain

safety and/or protect the asset,

to the same priority that is

applied across all our network,”

he said.

Park ready in November

• By Noah Graham

SYDENHAM PARK will

be back in use by the end of

November.

City council head of parks

Andrew Rutledge said the park

was damaged in the February

22, 2011, earthquake and repairs

were now being done.

The Sydenham

Rugby Club is

excited about the

improvements,

senior club

captain Andrew

Lynn said.

Andrew

Rutledge

Mr Lynn said

since the repair

work began, the

team had played their home

games on Addington Park and

on Hagley Park’s Hospital Corner

field.

However, Mr Lynn said it

had not affected training much

because they would usually practice

at Hansen Park, Waltham

Park and Barrington Park.

He said they did not practice at

Sydenham Park before the work

began because there were no

lights and in the winter it would

be too dark.

Mr Lynn said the players were

looking forward to the grounds

being completed.

PROGRESS: Repair work at Sydenham Park is well under way and will be completed by

November 30.

SURVEY FEEDBACK SOUGHT

Feedback is being sought from

Spreydon and Cashmere residents

about what heritage means for their

community and its future. The

Future of Heritage Survey closes

on May 22 and the response and

summary of the survey will be

reported to the city council’s Social

POOL NEEDS SUPPORT

The Addington Neighbourhood

other suburbs have easy access to

paddling pools and it would be

handy to have one in Spreydon. She

Toy car charity puts a smile

on Woolston boy’s face

CAR FUN: Izack Lidget loves the engine noises of his new toy

car and is learning to control it using a remote control.

PHOTO: DOLCE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

VOLUNTEER-RUN charity

Gobabygo has adapted a ride-in

electric toy BMW for 18-monthold

Izack Lidget.

The Garden City and

Riccarton Rotary branches

paid for the car and supplied

volunteers at the handover,

which took place at

Christchurch BMW.

Gobabygo board member

Bruce Jackson said three toy cars

were handed over to children.

Mr Jackson said Izack, who

lives in Woolston, warmed his

heart.

“He may be profoundly disabled,

but he was aware he was in

the car and loved the sounds –

his face was a picture.”

Also in the driver’s seat was

six-year-old Laszlo Walker, who

has cerebral palsy.

He can’t walk by himself,

which makes it harder to play

with his mates at lunchtime.

Mr Jackson said Laszlo, of

Phillipstown, was immediately

keen.

“He . . . will be driving himself

the moment he’s more confident,

though he doesn’t like reverse at

this stage.”

Mr Jackson thanked the Rotary

members who turned out to

help, including car builder and

fitter, John Harrington, as well

as Len Holland and Russell Pen.

He also thanked the staff of

Christchurch BMW.

Gobabygo is a national charity,

which adapts and donates toy

cars throughout New Zealand.

Chief executive Gilli Sinclair

said: “Thanks to generous supporters

and donors, and to the

wonderful work Rotary is doing

raising funds for us, we’ve been

able to import another container

of cars, ready to adapt. All we

need now is the kids.”

Call for playground

equipment upgrades

• By Noah Graham

EQUIPMENT IN Waltham,

Woolston, Bromley and Linwood

parks is in need of an upgrade.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

submitted in support of funding

to be allocated for much-needed

equipment that children, young

people and adults can use on the

parks.

Community board member

Alexandra Davids said the equipment

in the parks was out of date

and needed updating.

“When you look at parks in our

area they seem to be quite old.”

She said the parks did not

encourage families to go to them

because there was not much that

appealed to families.

Ms Davids said they needed an

overhaul as they were not providing

the community with the

services they should be.

“Some of the equipment is

not appropriate. They’re not fit

for purpose – they’re a waste of

space,” Ms Davids said.

She said city council parks staff

will be at the next community

board meeting tomorrow and

hoped an outline of the future

would be decided on.

They would give an update on

what the options were going forward

and the board can approach

the projects, she said.

Ms Davids said once an

expected timeline was sorted it

meant they could start thinking

about plans.

City teens experience country life

SEVEN CITY teenagers spent a

week experiencing country life.

The Hillmorton, Cashmere and

Riccarton High School pupils

took part in Farm Experience, a

programme designed to give the

pupils the chance to spend a week

living with a farming family and

learning about life on the land

and food production.

Cashmere year 10 pupil Bella

Howe stayed at Margaret and

Ross Manson’s beef finishing

and sheep property south-west of

Hororata for her week and spent

her time vaccinating, drenching

and tagging stock, helping out

with shearing along with other

day-to-day tasks.

She said had not spent a lot of

time on a farm before and had

not expected so much practical

work.

“I really didn’t realise all of the

things that needed to happen and

all of the decisions that need to be

made on-farm every day.”

Bella said the programme had

been a fantastic experience and

had opened her eyes to the career

possibilities in the agricultural

sector.

“It was so much fun and I’m so

glad I did it.”

After their week on the farm

the pupils came together on the

last day and were taken on a field

trip to a range of mid-Canterbury

agricultural companies.

The programme was an initiative

by the Rabobank’s client

council.

FARM LIFE: Riccarton High School pupil Jack

Goodgame, host farm equity partner and farm

manager Rodney Booth, Cashmere High School

pupil Bella Howe and host family Rowen and

Margaret Manson spent the week working together

on the farm as the students took part in a Farm

HEALTH & AWARENESS

Loving your independence?

Could this be you?

Sally was referred to an Occupational

Therapist (OT) as she was struggling

to hear on the phone and was losing

contact with her family and friends,

she was wanting any help that could be

useful following challenges since her car

accident.

She has:

Ankylosing spondylitis (which is an

illness that stiffens up the joints),

Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and is a

little hard of hearing.

Fracture in her upper back from a car

accident in 2015

Sally lives in a two storied home on a hill

in native bush with her husband.

She loves her home and gardening.

Due to a combination of Ankylosing

spondylitis and the recent upperback

fracture Sally has a forward flexed spine,

requiring her to bend her knees to look

up.

The OT visited Sally in her own home

and covered the following info on the

first assessment:

Energy conserving techniques

Regular postural changes to self manage

back discomfort

Problem solving Sally’s kitchen set up to

minimise bending and reaching

Problem solved better phone options and

also where to buy a cordless amplified

phone

Adjusting her office set up to optimise

function when using computer

Having raised garden beds and garden

pots on her deck,

Changes in social life since accident

and covered the five ways to Mental

Wellbeing to maximise mental wellness.

Sally feels very connected to her two

storied home, which is surrounded by

native bush, situated on a hill. The OT

discussed the challenges and solutions to

remain living in this home long term and

provided insights into ways to manage

this including the potential of living on

one level, use of the community van and

possible bathroom adaptations.

Summary from Sally’s perspective:

Sally reports that she was delighted with

the services as:

- the OT came to her house and at a

time of day and day of week that suited

Sally best.

- there was no waiting for the service -

seen within the week of referral.

- it was so affordable - $135 assessment

and advice

- she received good advice that

immediately changed her daily life

(so much more than improving

communication by phone)

- she now has clear understanding

of both the challenges and solutions

that may lie ahead of her.

- This resulted in less worry about

the future

- She was impressed that the

discussion involved her love for

nature (still be able to enjoy her

garden) and that it was not limited

to immediate need and safety

She expressed that she feels more

confident about staying in her much

loved home. She is aware of how

to access future input from the OT

who now knows her well.

Auction 1st June 2017 Unless Sold Prior

My vendor has paid the deposit on his new home and doesn’t

need two homes! Now priced below RV this must be an excellent

buy in such a highly-regarded suburb.

Located down a quiet lane amongst other quality homes, this

house will no doubt be the happy home for the next owner for

many years to come.

While some minor redecoration would enhance you can move

in and enjoy this well designed home with a spacious open plan

kitchen dining room leading on to large lounge. Good indoor

outdoor flow is a good bonus for these warm sunny days.

Just enough garden to for those who would like a vegetable plot

and some roses perhaps whilst still not being too large to make it

onerous to maintain. A lovely private courtyard area is a sheltered

spot to enjoy perhaps a BBQ and entertain your friends.

SPORTS

Teen runs

personal

best in half

marathon

• By Andrew King

LONG DISTANCE running is

in Nina Ericson’s genes and she

showed it by winning the junior

section of the Hanmer Four

Square Half Marathon recently.

Now she will

turn her attention

to the Christchurch

Marathon where

she plans on running

in the 10km

race on June 4.

Nina

Ericson

The 13-year-old

from Christchurch

Rudolf Steiner

School clocked her

best ever half marathon time in

Hanmer of 2hr 18min when she

competed on May 6.

“I had sore legs as I sprinted

across the line, but I was very

happy to finish in the time I did,”

she said.

She is a member of the Port Hills

Athletic Club and goes for regular

runs with her father, Arne, who

used to run ultra-marathons.

Hard-working guard in NZ squad

• By Andrew King

CASHMERE HIGH’S Okirano

Tilaia has been selected for

the New Zealand under-16

basketball team.

Tilaia will travel to Perth with

the national age group squad in

July to compete in the Australian

state championships.

He said it was a real honour to

be included in the team and felt

it was well deserved.

“I feel like all the hard work,

the early morning training and

the sacrifices I’ve made have paid

off,” he said.

His time is filled with basketball,

including three school

games and four trainings

crammed into a week.

“Someday I just need to take a

day off to let my body recover,”

he said.

The 1.85m shooting guard has

a fellow Cantabrian in the squad

with St Andrew’s Sam Jenkins

selected in the team.

“We just know what each others

strengths and weakness are.

I attack the rim and he shoots,

so if I can find him on the perimeter,

I hit him,” he said.

Basketball is a real passion of

Tilaia, but he said getting a good

job to support his family is his

main goal.

“I would love to travel the

world and do some volunteering

and have a go at being a youth

ambassador,” he said.

TO THE RIM: Cashmere

High’s Okirano Tilaia has

been included in the national

under-16 basketball team.

Cashmere looking to continue winning form

• By Andrew King

CASHMERE WILL attempt to

build on their winning start to

the season when they take on

Burnside tomorrow.

With two wins from two in

the Connetics schools premier

first XI competition, Cashmere

is looking forward to the battle

at 5.45pm at the Christchurch

Football Centre.

Co-coach Craig Squire said

while they are finding the back

of the net on a consistent basis,

stopping the opposition from

doing the same is the key to

winning matches.

“Burnside are a good side

and they are well coached, so

we have to be very tight defensively,”

he said.

“We would like to have a few

less scored against us this week,

so that’s what we will be working

on.”

Cashmere scored four over

St Andrew’s last week, three of

which were scored by captain

Lyle Matthysen.

“He is in really good form at

the moment,” Squire said.

He said the whole team is

coming together nicely, even in

SOUTHERN VIEW

the early stages of the competition.

“We want to make the top

four so we will do what it takes

to get there,” he said.

Top four results

Cashmere: Two wins, six

points

Lincoln: One win, one

draw, four points

St Thomas: One win, one

loss, three points

Riccarton: One win, one

loss, three points.

Ultimate campus for

Avonside and Shirley

More than six years after earthquakes

damaged their existing schools, Avonside

Girls’ High School and Shirley Boys’ High

School are looking forward to moving to

a cutting-edge campus on QEII Park.

The design for the new schools has

only recently been released.

Avonside Girls’ Principal Sue Hume

says being able to start from scratch has

enabled the architects to come up with

the ‘ultimate campus’.

“It features better facilities than either

of our schools has ever had in the past.

We are very excited at the educational

opportunities this will enable us to offer

our students.”

Shirley Boys’ High School Headmaster

John Laurenson says the schools will

continue to deliver quality single sex

education.

“Students will spend most of their

day in a single sex environment – that

is really important to us. Single sex

education benefits both boys and girls.

Our students will also benefit, both

educationally and socially, from being

able to learn alongside and mix with

students from the partner school. It is a

fantastic opportunity.”

Among the major facilities are a large

Performing Arts Centre (with a 750-seat

and a 100-seat theatre), three full-sized

Gyms (complete with climbing wall), a

Cultural Space and four Sportsfields.

Each school will also have a long list of

specialist learning facilities. Highlights

include an Electronics Lab, Recording

Studios, Editing Suites, a 2D and 3D

Printing Room, six Science Labs and

an Indoor Fitness Centre (complete

with exercise equipment including

rowing machines, stationery bikes and

treadmills).

The schools are due to open on their

new sites in time for Term Two of 2019.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

For those who love reading and want to share in discussion with other friendly book lovers,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

Making a difference to sick

A COUPLE of years ago I

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the right heat

pump for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,

most homes include at least one heat pump,

if not a whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more

convenient than a log burner as you just need

to press a button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right sized heat

pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort

levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional advice from heat

pump experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it

is important to select the correct size for your

requirements that will handle the job but not

be unnecessarily overpowered.

Secondly, the location of your heat pump

is also extremely important. The cheapest

installation is a back to back where the outdoor

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor

unit however this is not necessarily always

the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of

systems and price, so it depends on your

application as to which will be most suitable.

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are

all reliable brands backed up by good technical

after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but

also validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

Heating is a major investment in your home

and it is vital to get the right advice.

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,

installation and servicing of all major brands

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as

to which system will suit your application

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no

obligation quote and will come to your home

to see what is required. Visit our website at

The facts about

home ventilation

Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need to

be suitably ventilated, either with opening

windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1

states: “The objective of this provision is

to safeguard people from illness or loss of

amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are

many benefits to forced, or mechanical,

ventilation over opening windows, including

warmth, security, reduction of outside noises

and reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from

outside via the roof space and force the stale air

out through gaps around windows and doors.

The incoming air from these

systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm

in winter or cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is

a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It

extracts air from the house and

at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air

pass through a heat exchanger,

which warms incoming air in

winter and cools in summer if

air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of

the energy which would be

energy savings and therefore lower heating or

cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation

manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390

balanced pressure system can be installed for

a similar price as a traditional positive pressure

system.

Exercise

sharpens young

adult brains

Regular physical activity improves brain function

even in young adults considered in their prime and

at the height of cognitive ability, according to a

University of Otago study.

A

body of research already exists

showing aerobic exercise

improves brain function in

older adults, but there is a

limited amount of literature on how it

affects young adults.

The Otago researchers, led by

Department of Psychology Senior

Lecturer Dr Liana Machado, set out to

test the oft-held belief that the brains of

young adults in their prime might not

benefit as much as older people from

regular sustained exercise.

They took 52 tertiary students, aged

between 18 to 30, and put them through

a series of cognitive tests on a computer

while measuring oxygen availability in

the frontal lobe of their brains, as well as

their self-reported exercise frequency.

Dr Machado says their “surprising”

findings, just published online in the

journal Psychophysiology, show that

both blood supply to the brain and

cognitive functioning appear to benefit

from regular exercise in young adults.

“This provides compelling evidence

that regular exercise, at least five days per

week, is a way to sharpen our cognitive

ability as young adults – challenging

the assumption that living a sedentary

lifestyle leads to problems only later in

life,” she says.

The research also provides potential

insight into understanding why people

who regularly engage in aerobic exercise

tend to function better on a cognitive

level.

“I think the idea that young people do

not have to worry about exercising since

they are in their prime developmentally

is rapidly being overturned by mounting

evidence that even the brains of young

adults can benefit from regular exercise,”

she says.

“The exercise could involve brisk

walking or more vigorous activity, and

could be made up of a few 10 minute

bouts of exercise, rather than one single

block of exercise,” she says.

The researchers also found that body

mass index was not a key factor in how

well the brain functioned, indicating that

regular engagement in physical activity

may be more important than body

weight.

Dr Machado says she had noticed

over the years that university students

appeared progressively less fit.

“I wondered whether we might find

significant relationships between exercise

levels, oxygen availability in the brain,

and cognition in the young adults, but

no studies had considered this in healthy

young adults.”

These findings come at a time of

increased scientific focus on links

between exercise and cognitive health in

older adults.

QUEEN:

IT’S A KINDA MAGIC

RETURNS

Aer an overwhelming reception from New Zealand

audiences in 2015, Showtime Australia and Peter Freestone are

bringing their huge theatrical Rock concert Queen: It's a Kinda

Magic back to NZ, appearing at the Horncastle Arena on

ursday 1st June.

Capturing the imagination of Queen fans both locally and

internationally, Director Johnny Van Grinsven attributes the

show's continued success to the attention-to-detail; everything

from the costumes, instruments and even the lighting cues have

been designed to replicate those seen in real Queen concerts.

Making Queen: It's A Kinda Magic extraordinarily authentic is

the involvement of Peter Freestone, Freddie Mercury's best

friend, biographer, assistant and constant companion for the

nal 12 years of his life. As Production Consultant, Freestone

has schooled the cast and producers on the characters and

nuances of the original band in order to perfect the

performance.

“We're extremely lucky to have Peter involved. He knows

Freddie and the boys so well; his knowledge about who they are

and how they moved and played and even their sense of

humour has really helped take this show to the next level,” says

Johnny Van Grinsven.

Another highly impressive member of the ensemble is

principal musician Giles Taylor who steps on stage as Freddie

Mercury, and does so as the only tribute performer in the world

who sings and plays both piano and guitar live on stage.

Though piano and vocals have been a mainstay in Taylor's

repertoire since his childhood, he taught himself guitar

specically for the role of Mercury.

Supporting Taylor for this mammoth stage production are

Australians Richie Baker as Brian May on guitar and Kyle

ompson as Roger Taylor on drums, as well as South Africa's

Steven Dennett as John Deacon on bass.
