Foot health is of major importance to a person’s overall
wellbeing. Feet are the foundation upon which the body operates
and are easily taken for granted until the pain or soreness
Howard Nicholas, a podiatrist at Footprints in Barrington is a
community advocate teaching and sharing the importance of
taking care of your feet.
He specializes in sports injuries, biomechanics and orthotic
manufacture and has an area of interest in Postsurgical orthoses
and children’s gait problems.
I’ve been interested in foot care for as long as I can remember
and have worked as a podiatrist for more than 20 years. Feet
and the important role they play in a person’s life has always
interested me. Being active in sports as well as a coach, I see the
results of physical exertion on the feet and want to help with
education and results in helping people with the foot care and
Feet are a biomechanical marvel, transporting each of us over
150,000 km in our lifetime. Little wonder, many people develop
a foot problem at some stage. Feet are often overlooked when
starting any new activity - sports or work related. Many people
simply don’t consider their feet when they have so much else
going on in a busy life. Yet our feet transport us around our daily
activities and until a problem develops, many choose to ignore
them or worse, hide them!
MOST COMMON FOOT ISSUE
A foot problem affecting young and old alike is fungus. It’s not
a party topic and many will choose to ignore it or just keep their
feet hidden away, but feet contain about 250,000 sweat glands,
which produce around 600mLs of perspiration every day. Given
most feet are enclosed in a warm, dark shoe, this provides a
perfect environment for foot fungus to grow and thrive.
Our clinic is excited with the Lunula Laser technology we now
offer. After watching amazing results from overseas trials, I
brought the Lunula Laser to Christchurch about 8 months ago
and our patients are experiencing results.
Lunula Laser is a low level laser, designed to target both the
fungus in the nail and improve nail health. Previous lasers have
been hot, with an uncomfortable sensation and potentially
dangerous smoke plumes.
Lunula is a painless, cold laser, and unlike some oral fungal
medications, has no known side effects.

TOLERANCE OF OTHERS
IS AN ART
Sometimes you find yourself in a situation
where its uncomfortable or even hard to
tolerate someone’s words or actions. The
world is now a melting pot with all cultures
and diversities, gender preferences and
family dynamics interacting with each other.
As we each of us express our own personal
preferences and how we look at life, with
our likes and dislikes, we are bound to have
people cross our path, who we don’t agree
with the outlook on life.
At times like these, tolerating others is
consciously trying to understand where
each person is coming from and avoid
turning the situation into a personal battle.
The best way to develop a more tolerant
outlook is by learning about different
people and their cultures and developing
confidence in yourself and coming to
appreciate the differences in life.

NZ: THE WORST IN THE
New UK research has found that even people
who have been quite inactive much of their
life will benefit from exercise when they are
middle age or older.
A Cambridge University team of researchers
examined the relationship between trends
in physical activity levels over time and
mortality risk among adults in middle age
ExerciseNZ chief executive Richard Beddie
says many Kiwis will be shocked to learn that
New Zealand is the 13th worst in the world
for physical inactivity and the worst in the
developed world. He says it is just appalling.
“Exercise is the #1 sport in New Zealand
with more than half a million participants
and growing research confirming the health
benefits of activity for all Kiwis. But we
should be much better than that in terms of
“We have a massive crisis in New Zealand in
terms of people’s inactivity. We urgently need
a co-ordinated approach to solve it involving
government, local authorities, schools and
TO THE RESIDENT
workplaces so we can increase the quality
and length of life of all New Zealanders
and reduce the burden on the public health
system,” Beddie says.
“The exercise industry is ready and willing
to do its part and we want to present to a
government select committee on how to
address the issue. We need action and we
need it now,” Beddie says.
Exercise can lower the risk of cardiovascular
disease, cancer, diabetes and increase life
expectancy, as countless research studies
The UK academic research looked at the
effects that exercise in middle and older age
have on the risk of premature death and
lifespan. So, no matter when anyone starts to
exercise in life, they can still reap the benefits.
Beddie agrees it is not too late for the almost
50 percent of New Zealanders that don’t do
enough physical activity to earn the health
benefits of exercise.
“World Health Organisation guidelines
say people should exercise 150 minutes of
movement a week, or 30 minutes five times
a week or 90 minutes of moderate to intense
activity a week.
“The Cambridge research showed that even
those that have been inactive for much of
their lives will make significant health gains
in life expectancy and quality of life if they
start moving more regularly.
“The UK team examined how changes in
exercise levels over time affect a person’s
risk of dying from any cause, as well as
dying from specific conditions — such as
The researchers found out how much
exercise older adults need in order to boost
their reasoning skills and their brains’
Also, the results suggested that even if
someone decided to exercise after being
physically inactive, the benefits for longevity
would still be significant. For further

Security, freedom from home maintenance
worries, support, companionship and on-site
healthcare are just some of the reasons why
you might be contemplating the move to a
Retirement Village. But the implications of
buying in a Retirement Village are varied and
often seem quite complex.
Retirement Villages typically utilise devices
called Occupation Right Agreements (ORA).
These do not transfer ownership, as such,
but rather, they confer a licence to occupy a
certain unit at the Village until a given event.
Under an ORA, you make an initial payment
for entry into a Retirement Village, often
referred to as the purchase price of the ORA.
From this initial capital payment the Village
will apply a formula for calculating a ‘deferred
management fee’ or ‘village contribution’ that
is deducted from the entry payment when
you end the ORA. This exit fee is usually
between 20% to 30% of your entry payment
and accrues between 2 to 5 years from your
entry date. Be aware that often the balance of
the entry payment will not be repayable on
termination but rather, when the owner
finds a new resident for the unit.
There are three main additional costs
you should consider and compare when
you are looking at Villages. In addition
to the exit fee, there will be a weekly fee
payable to the village owner to cover
the running costs of the village. Some
Villages will fix this fee from the date of
your ORA, others will increase the fee tied to
the consumer price index or the increase in
the National Super rate, and others to account
for the increased cost of services each year.
There is usually another weekly service fee
based on the extra services you require or
opt for. There may also be other costs and
you should carefully view all the Village
documentation before you commit to avoid
any surprises once you’ve settled in.
While it is by far the most common approach,
not all Retirement Villages use the ORA
model. Some use different types of ownership
structures such as unit titles and cross lease
titles. It is important to be informed about
the ownership model of any Village you are
considering, and to get the appropriate legal
and financial advice.
The decision to move into a Retirement
Village is not one you should rush. Think
about the things that are “must haves” for
you and pick a Village that enables you to
achieve these goals. Look at different Villages
and speak to the residents if possible, to
ensure that the Village ticks all your boxes
and involve your family and friends in your
decision making process. At Harmans we
have experience dealing with purchasing in a
Retirement Village. Give Phillipa Shaw a call
on 03 352 2293 to arrange an appointment to
discuss your situation.

COPING WITH CHANGE
Change comes in many forms but leaving
behind what we know and are used to is
almost always stressful, even if we choose the
Coping strategies generally fall into two
categories: “escape” and “control.” Most
people use a mixture of both at various points
in their response to change, but control
strategies are the ones with the greatest longterm
benefits. We tend to react to change in
four main stages: shock, emotional responses,
coming to terms, and acceptance.
People are more likely to progress through
these stages successfully if they acknowledge
their feelings, explore the facts, aim to remain
positive, and draw on support networks,
while always giving themselves time to adapt.
Studies have shown that people cope with
change, of whatever kind, in two ways:
“escape coping” or “control coping.”
Escape coping is based on avoidance. You
take specific actions to help you to avoid the
difficulties of change. For instance, you might
deliberately miss an event or appointment
because of the discomfort.
Control coping, on the other hand, is positive
and proactive. You refuse to behave like a
“victim” of change. Instead, you manage your
feelings, get support, and then do whatever
you can to be part of the change.
In reality, most of us respond to major
change with a mixture of escape and control
coping. But control coping is generally the
better option to choose, as it is impossible
to avoid the reality of change for long
without becoming exhausted or effecting

STAGES OF REACTING
Change can be difficult because it can
challenge how we think, the quality of our
relationships, and even our physical security
or sense of identity. The challenge of change is
usually reacted to in four stages:
1. Shock and disorientation.
2. Anger and other emotional responses.
3. Coming to terms with the new situation.
4. Acceptance and moving forward.
Our progression through these stages is rarely
simple or linear. We might get stuck in one
stage or advance quickly and then slip back.
And there is often no clear-cut, decisive move
from one stage to another. Shock can shade
gradually into anger, for example, with no
obvious break between the two.
Stage 1: Shock and disorientation
Experiencing sudden or big change can feel
like a physical blow. In the initial stage of
coping, you’re likely to feel confused and
uncertain. Your first priority should be to seek
reliable information and to make sense of the
Stage 2: Anger and other emotional
Initial disorientation at the prospect of
change usually gives way to a wave of
strong emotions. Even if the change in your
circumstances is something that you’ve
instigated, you may find yourself swinging
between optimism and pessimism. This is
quite natural, and it’s a normal step on the
way to resolving your situation.

E CLASS COUPE
BY ROSS KIDDIE
My thoughts are that if you are paying over $180k
for a new car you’d at least expect it to look the
That is certainly what Mercedes-Benz has done
with its E Class coupe line-up. Well, the entire E
Class series looks pretty spectacular, it arrives here
in sedan, coupe and convertible, and each has
presence, its size, shape and detailing combine to
give an overwhelming sense of purpose.
The latest generation E Class has been around since
2016 and I’ve driven three variants, culminating in
this evaluation, the E53 AMG coupe.
I’m very enthusiastic about the turbocharged V8
engine that powers many models in the Mercedes-
Benz AMG performance range, that generally has
the nomenclature 63, and at around $200k the
sedan would probably be my pick.
However, the E53 coupe is not disgraced as it, too,
is a true performance vehicle. Under the bonnet
sits a twin-turbocharged V6 engine of 2999cc. That
engine is also carried across the Mercedes-Benz
range with varying outputs and in each case has
remarkable sound through the exhaust. In the E53
that sound is still there, it barks and spits during
gear shifts both up and down. The constant rumble
out the pipes can’t quite be heard to the same extent
as it is in the soft-top, but the coupe definitely has
an audible presence. I simply love it, I was forever
blipping the throttle and forcing shifts just to hear
the boom and crackle.
In terms of power outputs, Mercedes-Benz claims
320kW and 520Nm. If you add to that the constant
turbocharged boost you know you are in for some
excitement when the roads allow a bit of freedom.
Mercedes-Benz also claims a 4.4sec standstill to
100km/h time, and by my stopwatch it will lunge
through a highway overtake in just under 4sec
(80-120km/h). These are impressive times, but fit
well with the sporty nature of the coupe, it has the
performance to match its powerful looks.
Yet, the big coupe is also docile when the roads
don’t allow for performance, it will dawdle the
city streets without taxing the driver, indeed the
entire driving experience is one of comfort and
relaxation. So competent is it at speed that the
driver doesn’t need to work hard to maintain
momentum, everything the E53 does, it does with
On a stormy early winter weekend I took the
evaluation car to Windwhistle before returning to
the city through Hororata and Dunsandel. I had
intended to go further west towards Lake Coleridge
power station, but the roads were tricky with snow
piled to the sides and ice a major threat. However,
I felt at ease in the E53, it is majorly competent
because drive is channelled through a nine-speed
automatic transmission to all four wheels.
On the greasy wet roads it was great to have the
reassurance 4WD offers, grip is high, and even
though there was a lot of water under the tyres
they never felt like they would lose traction. What’s
more the driveline feels biased towards the rear,
promoting a sporty feeling, powering out of a
corner lends to the sensation that oversteer would
be available, of course, you can’t break traction
thanks to the trick control systems, but the car does
provide all of the feel-good factors that a dynamic
suspension and driveline offer.
There are also suspension settings the driver can
dial in for him/herself. That’s the beauty of an air
suspension set-up, the ride is glorious, yet can be
firmed or softened at will. If you haven’t driven a
car which utilises air underneath, then I suggest
you give it a try, it is the ideal compromise for
comfort and handling, the cushioning effect is
In AMG form the E53 is fully specced with all of
the upmarket and luxury kit you’d expect for a car
of this price, they are all laid out in the traditional
Mercedes-Benz style, the layout of the controls
is intuitive once familiar. It also has the tweaks
which provide the performance factor, and that is
where the AMG badging comes in, it adds to the
dynamics of both performance and looks.
As mentioned, if I was an E Class buyer, I’d pay the
extra $20k for sedan’s V8 power and its five seats
(as opposed to four seats in the coupe). However,
don’t be misled, the E53 and its V6 engine
represents true performance and has the benefits
of that beautiful rear quarter which is a styling
masterclass. I’m a big coupe fan, and I particularly
enjoyed my time in the evaluation car, the grace
with which it travels and the overall design is
something to surely treasure.
