Brittany Keogh Reporter from Western Leader

Hi neighbours, an international report has ranked NZ's child obesity rate second-worst in the OECD with 39 per cent of Kiwi kids overweight or obese. Unicef is now calling for the Government to introduce a sugar tax to curb the problem. Would you support this?

Unicef is now calling for the Government to introduce a sugar tax to curb the problem. Would you support this? What do you think needs to be done about child obesity?

Email hacks

Ronald from Massey

Over night I received an e-mail telling me that they (the person sending the email) had been watching me search and or use porn sites on the web. They also said if I didn't log on to another site and purchase $750 worth of bit coins they would further hack me and post images of me accessing … View moreOver night I received an e-mail telling me that they (the person sending the email) had been watching me search and or use porn sites on the web. They also said if I didn't log on to another site and purchase $750 worth of bit coins they would further hack me and post images of me accessing said sites. Problem is I don't go to such sites and I wouldn't know how to buy bit coins if I wanted to. I'll either find out or I wont I guess as they gave me 50 hours to make the purchase. As a self employed person I often get rubbish emails, some asking me to give money to a 10 year old squashed by an elephant, others telling me if I provide my bank account they can pay me the $40 million I've been left by and aunt I never heard of. I ignore them for the stupid attempt they are, all though some are getting more and more sophisticated and will suck even savvy people in. This one is different, its a direct threat, a direct attempt to extort. They even told me not to make a complaint as whoever I complain to wont be able to trace them any more than I would. So watch this space ill report it and report back on any developments, off to change all my passwords now.

Flower/plant identification required please - part 4

Fiona from Henderson

The fourth post is a very lush looking tree absolutely filled to the brim with pretty pink blooms.
The tree is slightly taller than 2 metres.
I did wonder if it was an azalea gone absolutely feral or maybe it was a vereya.

Does this guy have a home?

Lauren from Glendene

Hi all,

Does this friendly guy belong to anyone? (or vice-versa as cats go!) We're on Butterworth Drive and have noticed a cat explosion in the last few months with a lot of them congregating in our yard.
This guy has become more and more friendly and lets us approach him and yowls a lot … View more
Hi all,

Does this friendly guy belong to anyone? (or vice-versa as cats go!) We're on Butterworth Drive and have noticed a cat explosion in the last few months with a lot of them congregating in our yard.
This guy has become more and more friendly and lets us approach him and yowls a lot when he comes round to let our 2 cats know that he's come to say hi.
He sprays constantly around the yard and has recently sprayed on our washing on the clothes horse :/
We've tried the paper 'Am I owned?' collar but we're not sure if it just fell off due to damp weather.
Please let me know if you know if he has a home or he's been lost and is trying to wander home. He's in good condition and is unfixed.

Thanks!
Lauren
