Stolen Ute and Trailer

Kevin from Harbour City Tree Care

Hello neighbours,
Once again we have had our work ute stolen for the third time in 2 years . It was taken in broad daylight this afternoon between 12.45 and 2.30 pm. If anyone out there sees it could they let me know where it is, as we really need it back.
And to those who keep taking it would you please stop picking on the little guy who is just trying to make an honest living, unlike you, who are just out to take what you can get, don't care about anyone but yourselves, and don't care if your actions result in a business having to go bankrupt and putting 5 people out of work.

Bad Posture & Injuries

Cathy Finnimore from Tawa Fitness Centre

💥 Are you guilty of this?! I am…

When we think of injuries, we usually picture something that “happened” like a sprained ankle or pulled muscle.

But many injuries are actually caused by years of bad posture.

And one BIG cause of that is carrying a purse, briefcase, or a bag on one shoulder!

When you carry weight on one side all the time, you can end up compensating by rounding your spine to the opposite side in order to compensate. (Seriously, start watching people carrying bags and you’ll see what I’m talking about!)

This does NOT mean you can’t carry a bag with you.

BUT … if you are going to carry weight on just one side (we all have our favourite sides), there are some protective measures you can take. Do this:

✅Be mindful of your posture.
✅Stand tall and draw your shoulders down and back away from your ears to take the load off your rounded shoulders.
✅Engage your abs and upper back muscles.
✅Switch sides often.
✅Strengthen your core to help you keep an upright posture.

What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is looking into the rise of transportable/ kit-set/ pre fabricated homes. The upsides are build-efficiency, quality of design, and cost. The downsides appear to be land supply, red-tape with council and difficulty getting lending from banks. If you're willing to share your experience - good or bad - email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, otherwise leave a comment. Is there an aspect of transportable housing you'd like us to enquire about for you?
