Teachers' one-off $1500 payment will come through on the July 31 pay run, but the actual increase won't until September 11, eight weeks from now.

An update from Novopay announced staff have to wait another month before their hard-fought backdated pay increase kicks in. New Zealand Educational Institute (NZEI) spokesperson Paul Goulter told members feel defeated. "This is just another blow in an already elongated dispute, to have the Ministry turn around at late notice and just say 'you're gonna have to wait' has just destroyed any trust that has been built up." Minister Chris Hipkins said on Twitter it's not good enough, and he will be following up. "A couple of teachers have sent messages asking why it takes so long to get their pay rises. It's the first time anyone has told me it could take this long and I'm not happy about it. "I'll be following up first thing [Wednesday] morning. It's just not good enough."

Hi neighbours,

An Auckland dog owner is warning of the dangers rat bait can cause after her beloved pet nearly died after ingesting it twice.

Tracy Leach said her 8-year-old golden retriever Daisy first got sick about four weeks ago on their rural property in Glenbrook, south of Auckland.

She bounced back pretty quickly but Leach started to notice she was vomiting constantly and consuming a lot of water - causing her to take Daisy back to the vet.

Fifty-one people were killed in attacks in the Linwood and Al Noor mosques on March 15. Farid Ahmed's wife of 24 years was killed following the shooting at Al Noor mosque.
Mr Ahmed, in a wheel-chair, thanked Mr Trump for his leadership and "standing up for humanity"."Thank you for supporting us after the March 15 tragedy in Christchurch," he said to Mr Trump as they sat together.
“God bless you and God bless the United States." Mr Trump said what happened in Christchurch was a terrible event. In a remembrance service held two weeks after the attacks, Mr Ahmed forgave the alleged gunman, saying, "I have chosen peace, I have chosen love and I have forgiven." During today's meeting, Mr Trump told the survivors from religious maltreatment, who came from 17 different countries, "each of you has now become a witness to the importance of advancing religious liberty all around the world. It's about religious liberty." Mr Trump said, "In America, we've always understood that our rights come from God, not from government." The president listened as several of those attending shared their experiences of religious and human rights abuses.  Mr Trump told those who had been persecuted, "you've been through a lot more than most people could ever endure. And I want to congratulate you because that's what you need is congratulations. It's really an honour to be with you and I will stand side by side with you forever."
