Whakaari / White Island

Conrad from Hokowhitu

Forgive me if this post duplicates, but now we must double our efforts.
There are those, myself amongst them, too ready to point fingers of blame at the government over efforts done or not done on this tragedy.
There are stories of crime and safety reviews, hence my appeal to this forum. Let us move forward and express gratitude to the heroes, the civilian helicopter pilots who literally flew into the gates of hell to rescue
the injured. True courage is being afraid, but doing what is right for the lives of others. Please, if you agree, then contact your member of parliament and ask that one or all four of these pilots be awarded the George Cross. None are more deserving.

Are lunch breaks becoming a luxury?

Paul Mitchell Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Hey Neighbours,
As workplaces seems to get busier and harder to leave behind thanks to smartphones and email, more people are giving up or missing out on a lunch break. Common lunch breaks are all but history, and 4/10 Kiwi workers always or often skip it altogether.
Do you manage to find time for lunch? If so, what are your favourite lunch spots?
