Annette Barrette FrankelDemonstrating a romantic attraction that spans the centuries, legendary lover Casanova has inspired an art exhibition that opens in Burra on Saturday, October 24.

Passionate painter Annette Barrette Frankel reveals her love affair with Casanova in the exhibition of her latest work at Burra’s Uptown Gallery. All funds raised will go towards restoring the century-old Bishop’s Palace in Peterborough, now operating as the popular Saint Cecilia historic hotel.

Annette, who has called South Australia home for the past three decades, fell in love with Giacomo Casanova during a month-long visit to Venice earlier this year, where she explored every aspect of the great lover’s life and loves in the romantic Italian city.

The amorous artist has captured on canvas the Venetian inspiration for the romantic exploits of the soldier, spy, diplomat, prisoner, adventurer and lover. The result is an exhibition that encapsulates everything Casanova loved about Venice and everything Annette loves about Casanova.

South Australian hypnotists have launched a week-long campaign to capture the mindshare of businesses and individuals with the power of hypnosis.

Launched last Friday by State MP for Morialta Lindsay Simmons, the inaugural Hypnosis Week program has been organised by the SA Society of Hypnosis (SASH) to demonstrate the benefits offered by professional hypnosis.
Events have included a promotional stall in Rundle Mall on Saturday and a free information session yesterday called Discovering Hypnosis, which offered discussion, video examples and demonstrations of how hypnosis could enhance the practices of relevant professionals.

Tomorrow night, Hypnosis Week provides One Entrancing Evening with SASH, an entertaining information night about hypnosis, featuring video clips showing historical and contemporary footage of the use of hypnosis.

Adelaide’s world-class resource recovery and waste recycling operation, the Wingfield Waste & Recycling Centre, has launched a website at www.wingfieldrecycling.com.au.

The Joomla-based website is designed to profile the activities and achievements of the collaborative cluster of commercial businesses on a site managed by the Adelaide City Council.

The Wingfield recycling precinct provides a "one stop shop" for waste receipt, processing and recycling by accommodating complementary resource recovery activities. This innovative centre recovers about 87 per cent of the nearly one million tonnes of waste materials delivered to the precinct each year.

When the Wingfield dump closed on December 31, 2004, it was widely recognised as an Adelaide landmark. In its final year, it received more than one million tonnes of waste materials which were used in landfill.

Since then, the former Wingfield dump property has been reinvented as the Wingfield Waste & Recycling Centre, an internationally recognised waste recovery and recycling facility that has harnessed commercial motivations to deliver significant environmental benefits. Managed by the Adelaide City Council, the 94-hectare precinct has four primary tenants – Amcor; Adelaide Resource Recovery (ARR); Jeffries Group and Transpacific Industries (TPI) – which are each involved in providing state-of-the-art waste recovery and recycling services.

More details about the Wingfield Waste & Recycling Centre can be found at www.wingfieldrecycling.com.au.

Media doyen Diane Beer has again topped the Impress Media footy tipping competition by leading the field by nearly two clear rounds.

Diane’s 15-point lead was ahead of Michael O’Loughlin, director of website-hosting specialist Alltraders, who was two points ahead of ABC Radio producer Robbie Brechin.

Impress Media managing director John Harris collected the wooden spoon – an achievement that reflected the pathetic performance of his no-longer-beloved footy team Port Adelaide.

Diane Beer has form in the footy tipping area: This is the second year in a row that she has collected the top spot on the Impress tipping pools.
