Hi neighbours,

A new text service will make it easier to report incidents of violence and antisocial behaviour on buses and trains.

Mayor Phil Goff said a number of recent incidents have prompted Auckland Transport to launch the service in collaboration with Crime Stoppers NZ.

Passengers who witness an incident of anti-social behaviour, tagging, crime or fare evasion can text details of the incident to 4030.

AT will then look into the issue and may deploy staff to investigate further.

KFC giving away free food to those who get vaccinated

Brian from New Lynn

Vaccinations used to come with the sweet reward of a lollipop at the end, but the Covid-19 jab has no such reward.

That's about to change, with KFC announcing they're giving out some goodies to those who choose to get vaccinated against Covid-19. On Wednesday, KFC will be supporting the "90 per cent Project" by providing free Lolli-Popcorn Chicken in a bid to encourage those who aren't yet vaccinated to do so.
Two regions a day around the country will be able to get their Popcorn Chicken Snackbox if they show their vaccination card or sticker at a KFC store or drive-through. Bay of Plenty will be the first to be rewarded for getting vaccinated when the KFC initiative rolls out in the region tomorrow. Each region will have two separate days throughout the next two weeks to claim their vaccination incentive. Each region's turn will be announced on KFC's website at 2pm, or on ZM and Flava's Craving Vaxx Facts, available on their websites. "We're excited to be partnering with KFC on this initiative. Young people are an important part of the road to getting 90 per cent of New Zealand vaccinated, so ZM and Flava are helping them understand the decision better by speaking to experts and sources young Kiwis trust, with the added incentive of NZ's favourite chicken" says Paul Hancox, chief revenue officer, NZME. The move comes after a number of incentives were provided to those getting vaccinated at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau. Those who were not yet vaccinated were given either grocery or petrol vouchers or KFC if they came and got vaccinated. The assistant coach of the Samoan national women's rugby team said there's been some criticism towards offering incentives when getting the jab, but the approach is working.
"The incentive is they come and get KFC or they come and get groceries or petrol vouchers, whatever it is, they're getting vaccinated for a good cause and that's great, so keep coming. "That's the way we host as Pacific Islanders, we do that with food and we do that with gifts so why not this way, and it's working."

Air New Zealand holds vaccine centre in Boeing 787 for Super Saturday

Kiwis have the chance to get jabbed on a jet this Saturday, as Air New Zealand reveals plans for a unique vaccine clinic.

A Boeing 787 will be used as a drop-in vaccination centre for Aucklanders getting their Covid 19 jabs. Dubbed "Jabaseat" the airline's Chief Safety Officer Captain David Morgan has called it a "once-in-a-lifetime" opportunity. Vaccines will be taking place between 9am and 5pm out of the Air New Zealand hanger on Laurence Stevens Drive. "We know Aucklanders have been doing it tough recently and we hope the idea of boarding an international aircraft for the first time in a long while will lift some spirits – while also encouraging people to protect themselves," said Captain Morgan. Jabaseat will be held to boost turnout on Super Saturday. The weekend vaccine drive was announced by Covid Response minister Chris Hipkins on Wednesday, along with a televised 'TV Jabathon'. "We're getting ready to reunite families and fly Kiwis to their holiday destinations – but first New Zealand needs to get vaccinated. The more who can get involved with Super Saturday, the better." Plane spotters will be on cloud nine. However for wing-clipped travellers, it's a chance to get a little closer to their next overseas holiday. Jabs will take place in the plane's Business Premier cabin, with people then moving through to Economy for a refreshment while they wait the required 15 minute period of supervision. Earlier this month Air New Zealand announced a "no jab, no fly" policy for international travel. CEO Greg Foran said that the airline would not be accepting bookings from unvaccinated passengers for after 1 February next year. Seats can be booked via the Ministry of Health's Book My Vaccine website. Spaces are extremely limited, so you'll have to be quick.

Lack of cooperation by positive COVID case …

Markus from Green Bay

I would argue that if someone is withholding information or is outright refusing to help contain the spread of the infection that they can be held liable for part of the ensuing economic cost.

I guess that would solve the problem …

Any other suggestions?

Will wait til it gets later in the evening before I water them - that sun out there is pretty hot now. 😃 Fourth photo - the pumpkin which is still a seedling growing in the same garden, but the biggest pumpkin seedling I have. =D It SHOULD grow into a good sized plant I am thinking/hoping, AND MAYBE grow me some Queensland Blue pumpkins!!!!!!!! =D Like the one I still have on my kitchen bench, in the second to last photo. =D ALSO, since we're talking about herbs, I couldn't help but add that I look all minty fresh today, in my green pants and my minty green top and my minty green scarf my aunt gave me as part of my birthday bouquet!!!!!!!! 😃 Last photo. 😃

Were you there? 1960s photo of Auckland Star employees restored

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

A photograph capturing the staff at the Auckland Star in the 1960s has been discovered and restored.

Tony Lawson, 85, received the photograph from his friend Don Armitage, whose father Jack is pictured in the photograph.

“The photo came to me in a very poor condition,” he said.

A photograph capturing the staff at the Auckland Star in the 1960s has been discovered and restored.

Tony Lawson, 85, received the photograph from his friend Don Armitage, whose father Jack is pictured in the photograph.

“The photo came to me in a very poor condition,” he said.

“However, my youngest daughter's close friend who is a graphic artist has done a few hours work on this and has come up with an amazing improvement.”

Lawson started working for the Auckland Star in 1964.

“In those days it was hot metal, as they called it, a line of type writers going like the clappers,” he said.

“The noise was something, it’s a wonder we’re all not stone bloody deaf. It was 1976 they were all gearing up to go into the computers.”

He estimates the photograph was taken in the 1960s.
