ANYONE who has seen a family member or a friend spend good money on exercise equipment that lies idle after the first week or so could easily dismiss their fitness quest as simply a fad. Indeed, as the fitness industry started its meteoric rise some years ago, some drinking, smoking and generally sedentary cynics curled their lips while others sweated and groaned their way to better lifestyles. One cynic, obviously clawing for self respect as alcohol, tobacco and cream buns fell from many shopping lists, would deliver a sharp one-liner to fitness-conscious associates: "If you need to lift all that weight and run 10km a day to be fit and feel good about yourself, I can see you don't do enough work."
THE barrage of announcements this week that revealing classified information is apparently bad enough to incur enough life sentences to take the meow out of the family cat sent shudders through some human bones. Innocent eyes that gaze at me from behind a razor every day have feasted on classified information for decades. Even worse, the creature behind those bloodshot windows to the soul has been manning phones and keyboard with the noble motivation of 'the public's right to know', just like the defence in tribunals with authority to 'throw away the key'. The Law's apparent interest in the classifieds is puzzling indeed. And all the talk of leaks! Why don't they call a plumber?
THE freedom of art met scientific precision on Sunday when bayside painters showed their creativity in the Raby Bay restaurant precinct. The three-hour exhibition and demonstration has been among events in the first Ignite Redlands Light Arts Festival, a new community-based move to celebrate the arts in "beautiful Redlands".
