A mother on board a one-hour Jetstar flight couldn't find a rubbish bin in the plane's toilet to dispose of her son's soiled nappy. Instead, she left the nappy inside a nappy bag "safe" in the toilet's corner.

She said she was humiliated by a flight attendant who exclaimed loudly that she couldn't leave it there because it was "very stinky", and demanded she retrieve the nappy to stow at her feet.

Have you experienced a similar issue while traveling with your baby? Do you have an in-flight horror story?

How hunting for bugs is linked to Daylight Saving Time

The Team from Auckland Museum

Fossicking amongst the flowers, turning over leaves and inspecting tree trunks: all essential parts of hunting for bugs, but not your typical after-work activity. However in 1895, George Hudson, a New Zealand entomologist, proposed a two hour time shift for this very reason, so he’d have more … View moreFossicking amongst the flowers, turning over leaves and inspecting tree trunks: all essential parts of hunting for bugs, but not your typical after-work activity. However in 1895, George Hudson, a New Zealand entomologist, proposed a two hour time shift for this very reason, so he’d have more after-work hours of sunshine to go bug hunting in the summer, and thus the modern concept of daylight saving time came to be!

As you enjoy your lighter summer afternoons now that daylight saving time has started, keep an eye out for bugs in your backyard – you never know what you might find!

Here is John Early our Curator of Entomology collecting kelp fly larvae in Takapuna, Robert Vennell our Botany Collection Manager collecting dragonflies in Piha and the daughters of our Land Fauna Collection Manager Ruby Moore off to collect insects from a stream in Ngataki. All in a day's work here at Auckland Museum!

Papers, please?

"I haven't got my voting papers, what should I do?" It's a question the Heart of the Shore team are hearing a lot when we're out in the community. Make sure you have your say on how we make our Local Area the place we want it to be.

Independent Election Services (IES) run the election for Auckland Council, their freephone number is 0800 922 822.

If you're not enrolled, it can still be done by going to any PostShop or any public library.

If you're overseas, as of yesterday (1 October), IES said it was still fast-posting, at its expense, to hotels, hostels, and embassies. If you receive your papers overseas it will be up to you to have them returned in time. I was told many will choose to do this by express international courier. Email for IES: info@electionservices.co.nz

Also, Auckland Council are running what they call One Stop Shops where you can enrol, and vote at the same time. Here's a link to a page showing proposed venues for the One Stop Shops: www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz...

The programme for the One Stop Shops says they're subject to change so hopefully they'll rock-up to Takapuna Market (pictured) on Sunday - we reckon more than half those attending the market are from outside the Local Area, from East, West and South Auckland.

Here's the official Auckland Council voting site: www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz...
