The Sunday Star-Times is investigating the increasing creep of control your boss might have over your life outside work. This might include having to send photos of your remote working space (or having it personally checked off), having to abide by a social media policy, not being able to express political views in social settings, or not being able to have a secondary income. Does this sound familiar? Have you got a story to tell? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you missing your friendly cat?
My neighbour just popped in to see if I knew the owners of a cat that has arrived on his doorstep recently. I have one that is similar but with a white front. If yours is totally Blue Grey your four legged friend is missing you.
If you think it may be yours or know of who it may belong to please contact Richard or Tracey on 0211328176. They live on Opito Bay Road and would love to find its owner.
