Finally, this significant series for older people on how to stay healthy is out there working its magic. Driven by the NSW Health Healthy Living program, this South-Eastern Sydney Local Health District initiative is aimed at 65 year-olds and up and their families and younger friends. It provides simple guidelines around exercise, eating and keeping your mind active in your later years. Party on!
A cut-rate home insulator who advertised his services in local newspapers as Mr Fluffy had no shortage of business in the 60s and 70s in Canberra . Temperatures regularly drop to below-zero in winter while Canberrans bake in over 30 degree summer heat. Dirk Jansen was friendly, he was quick and he was cheap. But he was also installing deadly loose-fill asbestos and blowing it into roof cavities so that it was free to float around and infest the kitchen cabinets, carpets and furnishings of family homes for years to come. Afterglow has produced a 20 minute documentary to be screened at the Canberra Museum and Art Gallery. It narrates the fall-out from the scheme that infested over a thousand Canberra homes and continues to pose a serious health threat to the 30,000 people who had contact with those houses.
It is an ambitious project but Waverley Council is making great progress with its Bondi Junction Cycleway and Afterglow is documenting the completion of the various stages. The re-design of Spring Street is a milestone with the completion of the first major stretch of the Cycleway as well as the re-greening of the street and traffic-calming measures. There were interviews with Mayor Paula Masselos and lots of fun getting a cyclist’s POV footage of the new bike path.
