How much control does your boss have over your life?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

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 kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz

Heavy Metals in the water supply

Maria from Betta Water Filtration

Warning: Long post but important info for your health!

This is straight off the TCC Website - re Heavy Metals in your pipes!

"Plumbosolvency
Flush those taps!
We're encouraging Western Bay residents to flush their water taps daily before drinking or using water for cooking. Why you ask? To get rid of any heavy metals absorbed from household plumbing.

While we are sleeping, or when we don't use our water taps for a number of hours, heavy metals from plumbing fittings - lead, nickel, cadmium, copper and antimony - can dissolve into our water.

To ensure we are not drinking these metals, the Ministry of Health recommends you tip out the first 500ml of water from the cold tap each morning and after returning home at the end of a day away.

Problem solved!" Copied off TCC website.

(REALLY? ) 500 mls is nothing! Run your tap a good 30 secs in the morning, and this will flush about 5 litres through. And if you've a long driveway, make it a minute at least!

Installing a water filter is a much more reliable way to prevent ingesting heavy metals in your water supply!

For more information, see the Ministry of Health's fact sheet.

This is an American article, but has a lot of relevant info too about heavy metals potentially in our water supply.
