Did you feel last night's quake?

The team Reporter from Taupō Times

Hi neighbours - an earthquake which shook Taupō last night is one of the largest to hit the region in the last 40 years.

The shallow quake was centred under the lake bed 15km northeast of Turangi. "I was watching a movie in bed and it unsettled me so much, I couldn't continue," said Stephen Kelly of Wharewaka.

WATCH: Rotterdam's floating cows: the future of farming?

The Team from Play Stuff

Hi Neighbours, could you imagine cows floating down the Waikato River?

These cows are floating on Europe's largest port, in another effort to make cattle farming more sustainable. The owners call it the world's first 'floating farm'. It's in Rotterdam and they want it to minimize waste and land use, and also bring food production closer to the city.

Discover a new wine at New World

New World Te Kuiti

"Kia ora – Heidi Brittenden from New World Te Kuiti here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is the Allan Scott Rosé 2019. It was personally quite hard to pick one standout wine from the list, but this rosé is so delicious, and I usually don’t even like rosé! It’s a well- balanced dry wine that is also refreshing and fruity with hints of strawberry. If you’re new to rosé, this is a perfect drink to enjoy with friends on a sunny afternoon outdoors.”
