Auckland drought: Can you shower in 4 minutes?

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

The Government wants Aucklanders to save 20L of water a day. But what does that mean at your house?

Buying efficient appliances and fixing one-off leaks can make huge water savings, but so can small changes to daily habits. If every Aucklander showered in four minutes, we'd save 80 million … View more

Buying efficient appliances and fixing one-off leaks can make huge water savings, but so can small changes to daily habits. If every Aucklander showered in four minutes, we'd save 80 million litres of water a day.

Luxury lodges, usually full of overseas tourists and facing the off-peak winter season are slashing prices as much as 60 per cent, making a night at these lodges a little more accessible.

Would you dare?

It's a cross between a fighter jet and torpedo - that looks like a shark - and this Queenstown ride has been discounted to encourage more Kiwis to travel.

covid-19

David from Glen Eden

Being afraid of covid-19 is a normal healthy human reaction but not to the point of any paranoia.

A disease which in a few weeks has infected over six million people and killed nearly 400,000 should be a cause for concern. It is that concern, call it fear if you wish, which has brought together all the brains to figure out how to stop it. It is that concern that now drives the world's best scientists to evolve a vaccine some of which are now being tested.
I find it somewhat disturbing that a few people appear to rubbish New Zealand's attempts to protect us from it.
I would urge such people to learn that it needs only one (ONE) infected person among a crowd to initiate a whole new wave of multiple infections. The ease with which it spreads and the variable but often long incubation period make those lockdowns essential. To rubbish our NZ success and the plans of people who really do know what they are talking about is, quite frankly, not intelligent. It is the people that won't listen that I fear far more than covid-19 itself for they will be the spreaders of it. Let's try and make the App for tracing people work as intended. It could make all the difference if an infected person gets among us. Accept the challenge, let's fix it.

Aucklanders can celebrate the Māori new year with a smaller Matariki Festival this winter in response to a new normal for Tāmaki Makaurau.

The festival begins on 20 June with the winter solstice and ends on 15 July as the Matariki stars rise. You can experience the sights, lights, sounds and learnings of te ao Māori (worldview) in new and different ways.

Gatherings will come closer to you; they’ll be smaller, pop-up and virtual; and the spectacle of Vector Lights for Matariki Festival will bring a striking new Matariki story to the Auckland Harbour Bridge.
