Have you been opening OXO cubes the wrong way?

Hi neighbours,

Have you heard this trick before? A handy hack on how to open OXO cubes is causing a stir online, as it seems many of us have been doing it all wrong.

Forget crumbling up the cube after opening the silver foil packaging - it seems that packaging was actually designed to be flattened. To read more click here.

Simply open up the flaps on the side, flatten them out and then crumble the cube inside the package, turning it into a powder that's a heck of a lot easier to add to your dish.

Did you know this handy trick? Have you been opening the cubes the wrong way your whole life like the rest of us? Will this make cooking for your family a little easier? Share your thoughts in the replies below!

International Day of Older Persons 2018 - We can all Champion Human Rights and be Human Rights Champions – Take the Pledge!

The Team from Age Concern New Zealand

International Day of Older Persons is a day to celebrate all older people – to highlight the value of all older people and to promote dignity and respect. The 2018 international theme is “Celebrating Older Human Rights Champions“.


This year Age Concern New Zealand want all New Zealanders to sign up as Age Concern Dignity Champions and stand up for the human rights of older Kiwis.


“There is no excuse for elder abuse, says Stephanie Clare, Age Concern New Zealand Chief Executive. I am appalled that we are still having to deal with cases each day where older people are taken advantage of.


“Just because someone is older it doesn’t mean they are less valuable, have less purpose or should lose basic human rights, the right to make their own choices and respect from those around them.

“Of the cases we see, 75% of alleged abusers are family members, either adult children or partners of adult children and that needs to stop!

“So come on Kiwis we all have a part to play. You can take a stand against ageism and join me by signing up today!” says Stephanie.

An Age Concern Dignity Champion pledges to:
• Reject stereotypes and focus on the uniqueness of every individual
• Speak up when they hear people speaking negatively about growing old
• Have the courage to question practices they feel are disrespectful to older people
• Not patronise older people
• Be patient, polite and friendly
• Have zero tolerance for abuse or neglect
• Build relationships – they combat isolation and loneliness by getting to know the older people in their lives.

Is this something that's been happening in Hamilton too? Do you know students here that deserve some praise? Give them a shout out here!

Some of the students said it just "wasn't cool" to litter and it was everyone's responsibility to keep their little corner of New Zealand beautiful. Which parts of Hamilton would you like to see cleaned up a bit? Share your thoughts in our replies below!

!!! Warning !!! - email scam

Russ from Rototuna

Be aware there is an email scam going around under multiple guises of well-known brand names. I received 2 x samples via my inbox this morning.

Be aware there is an email scam going around under multiple guises of well-known brand names. I received 2 x samples via my inbox this morning.

Today's example #1:
Title: Love Chocolate?
This comes with Whittaker's logo but checking the sender address info@whittakers-2vmd8.com is not from the advertised brand.
The bait: We value your opinion. Share with us and win exclusive rewards.
How it works: After answering some meaningless questions you pick a gift that requires you only pay for postage.
How they dupe you: They now have your card details and start a monthly recurring gift send and payment extraction.

The fraudsters claim the gift has a 14 day cancellation period, non-cancellation will result in monthly transactions of a hugely inflated value (NZ$140+) being made on your card and a small value gift forwarded accordingly.

Note: You will not find ANYWHERE any reference to a 14 day cancellation period or that you are signing on for repeat gifts!
Today's example #2:
Title: Answer a simple question for a gift
This treat came under the banner of Briscoes and follows the same mechanism as example #1.

Two points to remember;
1. These are trusted brands and lure you on that basis. The emails have no connection with the Brand.

2. WESTPAC bank will do nothing about these obviously fraudulent transactions. As banks go - they are a waste of time.

You have been warned.
