Fascination Science public lecture tonight (29 October) - THE LIFE OF THE MOLECULES AT THE EDGE

Joachim from Albany

We look forward to seeing you tonight at the next instalment of the Fascination Science series. It will be held in the Sir Neil Waters Lecture Theatre at Massey University's Albany campus in Auckland from 7pm-8.30pm on Tuesday 29 October.


Molecules feel the most comfortable when surrounded by their own kind. The presence of different kinds of molecules causes certain tension. Dr. Emilia Nowak will discuss the fascinating ways to harness this naturally occurring tension, intelligent manipulation of the disliking molecules, and finally the importance of this phenomena in our everyday life.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact us at fascination@massey.ac.nz.

On behalf of our Fur Babies

Jodie from Greenhithe

Hi dear neighbours
Just a gentle reminder leading into warmer days that dogs left in cars need a decent airflow... inside of cars heat up really really quickly and leaving an inch gap in one or two windows is NOT enough air for them in the heat. I’ve seen and heard two dogs this morning stressed out in cars.. one in the Greenhithe school car park and one at the shops... so please please on behalf of our fur babies... take your valuables and open those windows up! Cheers

Hazy weekend for New Zealand.. again

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hazy skies caused by the Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!
