Your dog might be older (in human years) than you realise

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Think you know how old your dog is? Think again.

Multiplying by seven isn't accurate, a new study says. Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and other leading health institutions across the country have now debunked that common belief.

Hi neighbours,

Think you know how old your dog is? Think again.

Multiplying by seven isn't accurate, a new study says. Researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and other leading health institutions across the country have now debunked that common belief.

According to their findings, a one-year-old dog is similar to a 31-year-old human.

Christchurch has not managed to get its recycling correct for a single day in the past nine weeks, leaving hundreds of tonnes needlessly being sent to landfill.

Council rubbish collectors have had to dump contaminated residential yellow bin waste every day since May 4, when recycling facility EcoCentral reopened after the coronavirus lockdown.

In that time 635 truckloads of recycling have had to be thrown away – almost half of what has been collected, or about 3175 tonnes. The problem, caused by people throwing non-recyclable waste into their yellow bins, has cost ratepayers about $635,000. Read more here.

Every day our animals wait eagerly to smell what hes been up to over the day. He prides himself on quality service at a good price and customer service however more and more I think he goes to work to check out all the cute animals out there. This weeks star client had a collection of cats...Patrick gravitated to the Burmeses and even worked out they came from the same breeder as our baby.
Every evening our family hear about all the 4 legged friends he has made and i even had a work colleague in my other job (ED Nurse) say "my sister has had Patrick out on a few jobs now, did you know they call him the dog whisperer. Oh and they're really happy with the work too"
It makes me remember all the times with EQC work the tradesmen repeatedly let out my animals and treated them with disrespect. Every animal lover would be glad to have Elusion care for both their pets and Electrical needs.
Feel free to phone for your free animal friendly quotes.
Shan, Patrick and Elusion team.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
